Guestbook comments from the owner

Something happened here that has never happen before in my marriage. My husband said, 'I wouldn't change a thing.' K__ works in real estate. This is a huge compliment and was the perfect indicator that our ..... anniversary trip would be memorable!

All we wanted was peace and Quiet. We found that and so much more at Sea Ranch........

We hope to return.

I found this home by searching Google for "the best home in Sea Ranch" and this came up. We loved our stay; the home is fantastic for one or two couples. Right on the bluffs, waves crashing, seals and pelicans from the curb-side seat overlooking the bluff. This is not the home for small children and one has to drive a bit on Hwy 1 to park and hike the 12 mile trail on the bluffs in Sea Ranch but it is well worth it for the privacy and serenity. Almost all other bluffside homes for rent have the busy trail in front with passerbys peering in your window.

The deck is awesome. Two person spa was perfectly clean as was the rest of the house.

The kitchen is very well equipped and it is best/most convenient to plan on making your own meals to avoid any driving and maximize one's time looking out over the ocean. Perfect sunsets.

I highly recommend this home. The owner was very responsive and made every attempt to ensure our stay was "the best".

Heaven On Earth - This is where you want to be

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I were seeking the perfect spot to celebrate both of birthdays a day apart for our very special first year together. He had the pleasure of staying here years ago and this home left a memorable mark on him forever. He told me I would love it beyond any of the other homes I was finding on VRBO and he was so right. First, the location is the just magical. You have so much privacy and the wonderful deck at the end of the yard, just before the cliff falls off to the Pacific Ocean, is mesmerizing. Watching the water crash onto the rocks and the seagrass formations below hyptnotized me for hours. It is the perfect spot to take in the sunset with wine and cheese. The home is decorated in high-quality textiles, including natural woods and stones. There of splashs of blues and turquoise in various fabrics that cover pillows and throws. The lighting is special. My favortie unexpected delight, as a Chef, was having so many choices to serve my culinary creations on. The kitchen was stocked with everything I could have needed and then some. It was such a treat to open every drawers/cabinets and find beautiful options, so well organized. The master bedroom was dreamy as was the master bath, both with superb water views. THe upstairs bedroom and bath were also very very nice, though not a direct water view, but there are several spots throughout the house with daybeds that are perfect nooks for relaxing. The entire home is so well maintained and cared for that there really is nothing more you could need, even candles and matches left for you to enjoy, trusting that you will be responsible. There were games/checkers too. I loved the hot tub.... comfy for two to four folks. I had the pleasure of bringing in the best Massage Therapist named Mel who came right to the house and found a great spot to set up the table in the family room, with huge views at my side. Mel is truly a HEALER and I left his card there, but you can find him if you look up therapists in Sea Ranch. Brian, the owner, was a gem to work with. I simply can’t wait to return soon. You won’t be sorry if you book this spot, just make sure you have enough time here to enjoy it. Cell coverage was not fabulous with AT&T, but there was some rooms that had better coverage than others. Verizon seemed to work better overall. Though who needs a phone when you come here, right? WIFI was great. This is it! Just book it.

Simply Fantastic!!!

  • 5 of 5

A stunning home! While we were there deer came into the yard and rabbits frolicked amid the plantings. The home was equipped with everything we needed for gracious living. Brian was super talking us through a brief overview which made our stay instantly enjoyable. The views are 12s on a scale of 10. Definitely a great experience!!!

Wonderful Host & Exceptional VRBO

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed at many VRBO homes....none ever disappoint.

Indigo Tide is with out question the very Best of the Best. Anything you may need is there and the host Brian is just a phone call away. Although you will not have to call because this wonderful home is so well appointed. Oh yes,.....did I mention the INCREDIBLE ocean views. My Family absolutely hopes to return!

Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

The video for this property did not exaggerate. The property is amazing.

The cliff-side view from the remote deck is stunning. Knowing you're one step away from a quick death is thrilling (everything is safe - just don't walk around looking at your phone). You have unobstructed 180 degree views of this rugged and beautiful coastline. We've never seen a better view.

Sea Ranch is a pristine and wealthy community, with some of the best-maintained bluff trails we've ever encountered (8 miles of trails). Our youngest (15) enjoyed running along these trails. Nearby Shell Beach is very nice, and is easily accessed (maybe 1 mile from the house along the highway).

The property is large and open. Kitchen and bathroom amenities are somewhat dated but decent. There's an awesome mermaid table in the spacious great room. The loft area is open, with plenty of sleeping areas. Just outside, the main deck is huge, and the hot tub was well-loved.

We appreciated that the main outlook did not face directly west, which shielded the house from the blinding and hot late-day sun (this is a problem in almost all other west-coast oceanfront homes we've stayed in). The house still provided unobstructed views of sunset through large side-windows, and also from the main deck. It's a great layout.

Brian was an excellent host. He had chocolate waiting, allowed us to stay a few extra hours on our departure day (which was awesome and made departure stress-free), and even provided lunch for us at 2-Fish (local bakery a few blocks away).

Overall, our stay was excellent.
