About the Property

Recently remodeled 3 bedrooms, 2 bath, sleeps 8.

From our “Gualala Point View” house here’s what you’ll see: White water views with waves breaking on Gualala Point. Flights of Pelicans and Seagulls gliding by at eye level. The Gualala River flowing into the Pacific Ocean. An occasional fishing boat, and — in season — you’ll see whales as they make their eternal migration up or down the coast.

What you won’t see: traffic, malls, and parking lots.

What you’ll hear: the waves crashing to shore creating their own rhythmic and restful soundtrack to your relaxing visit.

What you’ll smell: The salt sea air.

What you’ll feel: Relaxation and renewal.

Park your car and forget it. “Gualala Point View” is conveniently located within easy walk to shops, restaurants and grocery stores, and situated on a quiet bluff overlooking where the River meets the Sea.

There are 3 bedrooms, plus a media room, an expansive living room with fireplace insert and a fantastic open kitchen. Both bathrooms have just been beautifully re-tiled and updated. We offer a propane BBQ and spa on the ocean-view deck.

R&R in a unique setting. The ocean-side deck and yard are your front-row seat for a kaleidescope of wildlife. We’ve noted raccoons, deer, rabbits, a large variety of birds, plus whales, porpoise and rarer sightings of orca! Join us, and create lasting memories. We’re excited to share!

Car: Not Necessary

Twice each year we have hundreds of whales passing by. The migration is from November through May. The best time to see a whale from GPV house is in March, but they can be spotted almost any time of year.

Grey whales migrate south in the fall to the warmer breeding grounds near Baja California, and then head north in early spring to the feeding grounds off Alaska. Most will appear only as puffs of steam in the blue sea, but grab a pair of binoculars and you'll be amazed. Some will even come in close to the Gualala River Estuary. Additionally, some individual Grays are seen during the summer months off the northern California coast. Gray whales produce a distinctive V-shaped blow, and usually blow several times, at short intervals, before diving for 3-5 minutes.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: We are native San Franciscans who still primarily reside in the City. But when busy schedules allow for a bit of rest and relaxation, we head north to our GPV home.

Why Gualala, CA, USA:
We've been annual visitors to Gualala and the 'Mendonoma' coast since the early 1980s. Having rented homes up and down the area we came to know exactly where the area's weather sweet spot was located. When this lovely 1950s mid-century home (formerly owned by a well-known architect) came on the market we had to make it our home-away-from-home.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The breathtaking views from the deck and living room never fail to work their magic. Coming to GPV house is like entering another world where nature at her best is front and center. The cares of the work-day world fall into perspective and a certain enjoyment of nature seeps in to replace them — sometimes in as quickly as the time it takes to unlock the front door. Easy walking to stores, coffee shop, groceries and restaurants mean that you can park the car and forget about it till it's time to go home.
