About Ken and Laura Scheidegger

Native to the California Bay Area, Ken and Laura Scheidegger today live in the California Delta where they own a family farm, farmers market and a restaurant. Ken is a PhD in Oceanography and headed the PhD program at Oregon State for many years. The location of The Pelican House offers Ken the perfect setting from which he can enjoy his true love ... the Sea.

Ken and Laura Scheidegger purchased this house in 1989

Why Ken and Laura Scheidegger chose Sea Ranch

Over the years the family has enjoyed The Sea Ranch and all of the joys that come with it. From Ab Diving to Golf ... the Scheideggers have built wonderful memories from their time at The Sea Ranch. The location of The Pelican House is one of the first developed and represents the best that The Sea Ranch has to offer. Busy lives have kept the family from visiting the house and it is time to share with others what they have so enjoyed over the years.

What makes this house unique

One of the finest locations in Sea Ranch! Only nature lies between you and the beautiful cliffs and majestic ocean of the The Sea Ranch coast. The Ocean Front Hiking Trail is seconds from the front door and the golf course is minutes away. The setting and layout of the property and house allow you to feel as though it is you and the Sea with nothing in between but indigenous grasses, plants, deer, and the occasional fox! Enjoy a cup of tea or glass of wine on the spacious and open deck as you take in your unobstructed view of the ocean. Particularly in March and October, you will most likely see the grand whale migration! Pelicans effortlessly soar above the coastline inspiring a feeling of peace and serenity - we hope you will find this same feeling when you visit The Pelican House.

Great location and great house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for just over two weeks and were sorry to leave!

A couple of comments:

- The house is on the north end of Sea Ranch - which for us was a really good thing as it meant that we were very close to the market and restaurants of Gualala. This also means that is within walking distance of the golf course.

- The house is really well positioned for lots of great walks.

The owners have created a wonderful book with all kinds of helpful information about the area and the Sea Ranch itself. We referred to it often especially for information about the marine environment.

The house is well cared for and was supplied with all that we needed. The online photos are representative.

We hope to return and enjoy this great house in this special place.

Very nice stay

  • 4 of 5

Location is great, layout of house is perfect for two couples, but more would be crowded. Kitchen was very well equipped, but no ice machine or even ice trays. House was perfectly clean through-out, but the coffee pot had not been cleaned out. The fenced-in garden was perfect for our little pooch and we appreciated being able to bring her. She loved it there. The main drawback to the house for us was the poor lighting, which made it hard to play games at the dining room table and read anywhere. All in all it is a lovely house and we enjoyed our stay.

Great Weekend

We were fortunate to have fantastic weather during our stay. The Pelican House was very comfortable, clean, relaxing, and is in a great location! Actually saw whales from the deck.

Recharged with Vitamin Sea

Thank you so much for sharing your seaside escape with us. It suited all of our needs, and then some. We spent 2 nights and wish we had booked more nights for this trip - maybe next time.

Cheers!
