About the Property

Main house: 2 Bed/2.5B plus loft, 'Casita': 1 Bed/1 Bath, Sleeps 8

Our home is a perfect rental for two families or 3-4 couples. We have completed a 360 sq. ft. loft addition in late December 2016. The house and casita sleep maximum of 8. Our home is very well maintained (one of number one reasons people appreciate our home) and tastefully decorated with a Sea Ranch/Pottery Barn look and a high-end kitchen. Four decks to enjoy panoramic amazing ocean and garden views. Easy walk to Shell Beach and privately located at the end of the cul-de-sac. Located on .5 acre with empty .5 acre lots on either side. Our rates DO NOT include casita. See notes on rate page for adding casita. Three gas hearths, 2 large HD television with DVR, hot tub, free wireless internet service included. Wireless will allow streaming (Netflex, etc) beginning December 1st. Main House: 1 King, 1 Queen, 1 queen sofa bed (top of the line American Leather brand) in loft, window seats for children. Casita: 1 Queen. ( Please note that we do not rent the 'Casita' alone.)


There is an openness to this home not only inside with its many windows but outside too. Unique to our house is the large open mowed space surrounding the house which has allowed for many a whiffle ball game, soccer, bocce, frisbee or kite flying. Bring your bicycles to enjoy either mountain biking on the trails or biking Leeward Road for a 8 mile roundtrip from our house on a road with little elevation change.

We designed the detached 'Casita' for a unique suite with its own deck, gas fireplace, and spectacular views. Family & guests cannot decide which master suite they like best at the house. Our decks give you lots of options for sun or shade & protection from wind. The solar effect on the vast front windows keep the house toasty warm on cold days.

Our home have linens provided with the beds made so that you can enjoy your visit from the moment you walk in the door. You will find kitchen & bath towels too. Through our years of renting, we discovered many homes lacked kitchen amenities. We enjoy cooking & decided to outfit the kitchen with good kitchen dishes, sharp knives, pots and pans, lots of spices and seasonings for the gourmet chef. Views from the kitchen windows will make you want to cook. The couch and window seats will draw you for a nap, reading a book, or watching the wildlife. Deer love to graze around the house and often take their afternoon naps under the shade of a tree down from the house. Don't be surprised to see hawks, turkeys, or a fox walk by. You can take a walk or bike ride to Shell or Tidepool Beach. The seals are always there, taking their naps or watching you as you explore the beach. Another favorite spot in the house is the game table (downstairs & upstairs) with views as you do a jigsaw puzzle or play one of the many games provided.
PLEASE NOTE: PRICES ON RATE PAGE ARE FOR MAIN HOUSE ONLY. YOU NEED TO ADD PRICE OF CASITA FOR 6 ADULTS. See NOTES section for CASITA pricing.

One-Eyed Jack playground is a short distance away and our grandchildren love exploring the cypress hedgerow next to the playground.We are sure you will enjoy your stay and love the peacefulness & beauty of The Sea Ranch.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Our family camped on the North Coast for nearly 30 years with a love of the ocean, abalone diving and good times camping with family and friends. We learned of The Sea Ranch and began to rent homes after our camping area was closed. We soon discovered the wonderful amenities and luxuries that Sea Ranch offered. We decided to name our house 'Abalone Point' since we loved abalone diving and we met 44 years ago on Catalina Island and loved swimming at Abalone Point on Catalina Island. We are now retired and can spend the time to maintain and keep our Sea Ranch home up to our standards.

Why the Owner Chose Sea Ranch, CA, USA:
'Abalone Point' was under property management for 4 years but we now have the time to manage the property ourselves and offer amenities not possible before. Our home will now have linens provided with the beds made so that you can enjoy your visit from the moment you walk in the door. You will find kitchen & bath towels too. Through our years of renting, we discovered many homes lacked kitchen amenities. We enjoy cooking & decided to outfit the kitchen with good kitchen dishes, knives, pots and pans, lots of spices and seasonings for the gourmet chef. Please let us know if we are missing some! Views from the kitchen windows will make you want to cook. The couch and window seat will draw you for a nap, reading a book, or watching the wildlife. Deer love to graze around the house and often take their afternoon naps under the shade of a tree down from the house. Don't be surprised to see hawks, turkeys, or a fox walk by. You can take a walk or bike ride to Shell or Tidepool Beach. Our grandchildren love collecting shells and other treasures at these amazing spots (especially at low tide). The seals are always there, taking their naps or watching you as you explore the beach. Another favorite spot in the house is the game table with views as you do a jigsaw puzzle or play one of the many games provided. One-Eyed Jack playground is a short distance away and our grandchildren love exploring the cypress hedgerow next to the playground.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We fell in love with the openness of this home not only inside but outside. Unique to our house is the large open mowed space surrounding the house which has allowed for many a whiffle ball game, soccer, bocce, frisbee or kite flying. Bring your bicycles to enjoy either mountain biking on the trails or biking Leeward Road for a 8 mile roundtrip from our house on a road with little elevation change. We designed the detached 'Casita' for a unique suite with its own deck, gas fireplace, flat screen t.v., DVD & spectacular views. Family & guests cannot decide which master suite they like best at the house. You will see from our photo album at the house that we have done much of the work ourselves from installing slate floors, painting, to unique artistic light fixtures. Our decks give you lots of options for sun or shade & protection from wind. The solar effect on the vast front windows keep the house toasty warm on cold days. We are sure you will enjoy your stay and love the peacefulness & beauty of The Sea Ranch.
