About Diana Nicholas or Kathy Grace

We first went to Sea Ranch over 20 years ago. We fell in love with the rustic coastline, the quiet little town of Gualala, and the overall tranquility of our special spot. We always dreamed of owning a home here and in 2008 we fulfilled that dream by purchasing 180 Walk On Beach from the Garvin's.

Diana Nicholas or Kathy Grace purchased this house in 2008

Why Diana Nicholas or Kathy Grace chose North Coast

Since purchasing our Sea Ranch home, we have redone the bathroom with dual sinks and a walk in shower, put in a hot tub with an ocean view, and built out the private courtyard. We have also totally refunished the interior. We are constantly thinking of new things that we want to do next - a stone walk way, another TV, a few more pieces of original art. Truth be told, we will never be done. It is our dream house and we love adding to it.

What makes this house unique

From the moment you walk in all your cares seem to disappear and a serenity overtakes you. 180 Walk On Beach is one of the most uniquely situated properties at the Sea Ranch. Only about 100 yards from the ocean, yet far enough back that you never see the people walking the trails. Truly you are by yourselves in this perfect little home.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We LOVED our stay at Breaker View. It was our first time to Sea Ranch and this house was perfect for our family with a 7 and 9 year old. The house is just about a minute walk to the bluff and a few minute walk to many of the beaches. Tons to explore. There's a nice view of the ocean from the living room window, even though it's not right on the bluff. We actually saw whales passing by from the living room window. Amazing!! The house was SO well equipped with everything we could have needed and more. And games, puzzles, drawing supplies, movies for kids. The town of Gualala with a few restaurants and grocery stores is only about a five minute drive. We were all very sad to leave, and will definitely be back again!!

Love Sea Ranch

  • 4 of 5

The Breaker View home is in the perfect location, just spent a week there. - close to the trails and beach that we love. This is our 2nd time renting the house. However, the furnishings need updating. The King bed was so uncomfortable, most nights my husband and I slept in separate rooms. The couch in the living room needs to be replaced, it is lumpy and uncomfortable. I did enjoy the sofa by the window for reading and the kitchen is well equipped. The management company is great and the house is always been very clean upon our arrival. We would like to go back but the master bed mattress NEEDS to be replaced.

Amazing Trip

  • 5 of 5

I am long overdue in submitting a review for this wonderful property. Last summer I took my two kids for a trip to Northern California and we stayed at this lovely home. The house itself was simply amazing - all amenities were available to us and it was impeccably clean and well-stocked. It has been over a year since we went and my kids are still talking about going back to Sea Ranch and staying at the house and making sure we're able to have my husband/their dad come along. This was our first trip to this area of California and we were excited about visiting simply based on the pictures of the house and upon arrival, it exceeded our expectations. It was one of the most relaxing and enjoyable vacations I have ever had with my kids and we will certainly be back again.

Breathtaking Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Before our arrival, my husband showed me the pictures of the place. Yes, I was very excited. But the moment I walked into Breaker View was a whole other story. The photos, as beautiful and picturesque as they may be, don't come close to the real deal. I think these were my exact words seconds after stepping onto the property..."Are YOU kidding Me?! This is ours for a couple days? Are you kidding Me?!" So, in a's one of the prettiest places we have visited. And mind you, we do our fair share of travels.

The house, I like to call "The Cottage," belongs in a book. A good one. The scenery belongs in a movie. A memorable one.

If you are looking to get away for a few days and wanting nothing more than pure relaxation, gain some peace and perspective...Breaker View is for you. We will definitely go back!

A Relaxing Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time at this house and were sad the time went so quickly! A spacious living room with large windows & deck were ideal for gazing out towards the ocean and watching sunset and stars. We cooked breakfasts and dinner in the open kitchen and had plenty of options for sleeping arrangements. It is very close to the beach and wonderful trails - and easy access to the Rec Center or shops/galleries in Gualala. The house is a terrific place to stay while at the Sea Ranch.

We Never Want to Leave!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed here many times and every time we visit we wish we had reserved more days! This home is beautiful and spotless. The owners have taken great care to make sure their home is inviting, super clean, modern, and completely outfitted with everything you need to relax and enjoy a vacation. Pick up a couple of bag of groceries from the local store and you can stay all week! The views from the deck and the cozy couches inside are amazing! We can sit in the hot tub and watch the waves roll in or take in the wildlife. You can just feel the stress melting away! The owners are great and very helpful. They always know the latest information about the area, and they keep an updated binder of activities, restaurants and hikes in their home.

We've spent many hours here playing games, reading, taking hikes, watching seals and deer, sitting on the beach, watching movies and just reconnecting with family. There is plenty to do and we have taken advantage of the horseback riding in the area as well as swimming and tennis at the clubhouse. However, we are usually so relaxed that it is about noon when we finally get moving and then it is time for our nap. It is absolutely wonderful and we will continue to stay here when we visit the area. Just writing this reivew makes me want to book this house again.

Relax and Enjoy Like No Other Place!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have had the pleasure of visiting Breaker View a number of times....and we keep going back. The location is perfect with breathtaking views of the ocean and within a short walking distance to the trails and beaches. The house has the advantage of being modern, and yet warm and cozy. It also has three bedrooms and two baths, so big enough to share with friends and family. Yet, we often go just the two of us as it is has the feel of being intimate and romantic. The wonderful deck is perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine and watching the many deer that stroll through the edge of the property. At nite, hop in the jacuzzi and watch the millions of stars, including shooting stars, and satellites as the jets relax your body. You are 10 minutes away from town so convenient to grab a bite to eat at the several good restaurants. Shop at the stores for local wares from nice clothing to beach-oriented paintings, jewelry and housewares.

The real story, however, the real reason for going to Breaker View is being able to relax like no other location. We've been to France, England, Italy, Scotland---taken cruises and stayed in wonderful hotels. None of these trips make you feel as relaxed and stress-free as staying at Breaker View. If you're just sitting on the deck and watching (and hearing!) the ocean, or taking long walks on the trails and seeing the numerous seals, you will have the most wonderful vacation; you will not want to leave. Leave you will, but the good news is, you can always go back. Trust me, you will.
