About the property

Shining Sea is a beautiful 3 bedroom/3 bathroom vacation home located in the Sea Ranch. Broad ocean views grace every room of this large and spacious retreat. Centrally located on a quiet cul-de-sac, guests will find themselves within an easy 5-minute walk to One-Eyed Jack's playground, Shell Beach, Tide Pool Beach, Seal Rookery, Guided Monarch Nature Trail, and the Sea Ranch Chapel. Up to 6 guests can fit comfortably inside this vacation home, making it great for a family or friend getaway. Guests will have 2 outdoor parking spaces for their vehicles.

Upon entering, admire the expansive windows offering an abundance of natural lighting and views of the blue ocean. A common living space is comprised of a living room, kitchen, and dining area. The living room has plenty of seating options arranged around a fireplace and 46" flat screen TV. At night light the fireplace to set a perfect ambiance while you curl up for a movie. A Blu-ray DVD player, streaming video, stereo, and superior high speed fiber optic WIFI via Sea Ranch Connect are provided for family entertainment. An additional family room is tucked away with a small sectional couch and 50" 4K flat screen TV. The family room is suitable for entertaining as there are films, books, puzzles, and a game closet for all ages.

Alongside the living room is a fully equipped kitchen. This well stocked kitchen has a gas stove, Weber grill, and garden herbs. A chef will love cooking yummy treats and delicious meals in here. When your home cooked meal is ready to be served, call everyone over to the dining table. The dining table has seating for six. Anyone who enjoys dining alfresco will love the back deck. Fire up the (propane) BBQ for a juicy burger. Outdoor furniture is set up for you dine, drink, and unwind under the Northern California sun. All of your guests will want a turn soaking in the private hot tub. This is also the best spot to stargaze from at night. A washer and dryer are assembled back inside handy for wet bathing suits.

As the night comes to an end, there are three bedrooms to choose from. The master bedroom is furnished with a luxurious California King-size bed, TV with DVD player and streaming video, and a walk out to the enclosed deck. There is an attached master bathroom for privacy with a spacious vanity and walk in shower. The first guest bedroom holds a Queen-size bed. The second guest bedroom is ideal for housing the kids with two Twin-size beds. These guest bedrooms share a nearby bathroom with a standalone shower and vanity. There is also a separate salle de bain, which holds a full bath and overhead shower.

2018 Started our Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice. Clean close to the beach and very comfortable. Being recent victims of three Tubbs Fire we enjoyed starting 2018 there. My only complaint was living room searing was limited. Game closet amazing and hot tub was wonderful. Weather was perfect it was a well needed vacation! Thank you!

Great home

  • 4 of 5

This was a great home and we enjoyed every moment EXCEPT when we discovered there were no sheets or towels throughout the house and it was too late to contact the company that manages the unit! Uncomfortable first night! And they never listened to the phone message we left. We had to actually visit their office to get the sheets & towels and make the beds ourselves! And of course the sheets we received were not complete sets. Not too impressed with this managing company!

Owner's Response: Hi Karen, We have reviewed the issue of no linens in the home with our staff. As of 2017, we have a new General Manager and a new housekeeping supervisor. As of May 2017, we now have a commercial laundry service provide higher quality supplies - we make the beds and set cotton bath towels in the home prior to renter arrivals. I apologize you experienced trouble with the linens during your stay last year, and do hope you consider these changes we've made for future travel vacation plans!

Overall a pretty nice place

  • 2 of 5

First off.. we check in to the house. There are molding dishes in the sink, a coffee pot full of molded coffee. The beds were all slept in condition. We got a knock on the door at 8pm?!? It was the cleaning/laundry ladies with (the worst towels I've EVER used) in hand. They made the beds up.. I guess. The next morning I wake with another persons shirt in the foot area of the bed? Maybe the previous tenant?

Great house!

  • 4 of 5

Loved the house, very well maintained. About a five minute walk to the beach which is perfect for an after dinner stroll.

We had two babies with us and the house was such that the noise did not carry and keep people awake.

The master bath is GORGEOUS leading out to a very nice hot tub and well kept yard.

Kitchen is well stocked with all the tools you might need (looks like the owners are cooks) and even includes the basics (salt, pepper, oil, sugar).

Wonderful operable windows can be opened to feel a sea breeze running through the house.

Our negatives (minor):

Kitchen counters are a bit vintage (early 90's?) but totally functional.

Master bed is quite squeaky (no, not that, just getting in and out woke the baby)

We would definitely return to this rental.

Side note, owners have very good taste in literature.

Owner's Response: Hi Dan, I am so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay, including the well stocked kitchen and location! We looked into your concerns, and did replace the bed - with a California King! Thank you for sharing your experience and we look forward to hosting you again.
