About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Attractive decor and restful ocean views from all rooms make Shell Beach a wonderful choice in Sea Ranch! Ocean-facing decks off the bedrooms and plentiful window seats make for great relaxation spaces. Plus, the large deck with the hot tub is a great way to spend an afternoon.

The Shell Beach home is just across the street from Shell Beach so those evening or early morning walks along the shore are a mere few footsteps away.

When you want to stay in the home to kick back, enjoy satellite TV in the living room and master bedroom. If you'd rather watch that movie you've been meaning to see, the large screen TV, DVD player, and stereo sound in the living room is just right. Or, enjoy your favorite book or CD while stretched out on one of the many window seats in the home.

The Shell Beach home is great for families of up to six, especially when you want to leave the atmosphere of city life behind. So bring the kids and bring the dog (two dogs are allowed with an additional nightly pet fee), and make your next vacation getaway the Shell Beach home at The Sea Ranch.

Guestbook comments from the manager

For the last several years, six of us have been renting homes up the coast for our annual guys trip. Basically, our trips involves golfing, fishing, and having a few cocktails on the the beach. The shell beach house did not disappoint. The home lived up to the description and photos. Check in at the rental office took less than a minute and check out took five seconds. What impressed us the most was the proximity of the beach. From the house to the beach is less than five minute walk. It almost appeared that the beach was private, as we only saw a few people enjoying the beach even with the great weather. We could not have been more pleased with out stay! If we return to Sea Ranch, this will be our spot.

The house was comfortable and beautiful, and the location and views couldn’t be better. + Sea Ranch.

  • 5 of 5

We love the house—the books, the art, the views and window seats, the location within biking distance of Moonraker Pool, which our grandchildren love, and an easy walk from Pebble Beach.. it looks and feels like a real house, rather than a hotel suite, which made it very comfortable for all of us. Many thanks to the owners.

Beautiful coastal vacation

  • 5 of 5

Fell in love with the Sea Ranch. The house was gorgeous (all the houses have a rich architectural history) and the location was magnificent. The kids loved seeing all the wildlife, especially the seals on the beach. We plan on making this a regular getaway spot. Shell Beach house is just minutes from gorgeous private beaches and spectacular views.

Location perfection

  • 5 of 5

This is my 4th time to Sea Ranch and the best rental of all. It is steps from Shell beach and a beautiful trail the other way. The kids loved the nearby playground. The house has a good layout, nice big kitchen table for a group of 6, stuff for kids to do like watch movies, toys and puzzles. There must have been some updates - looked like a new couch. I'm just glad I ignored some of the reviews I read that said it was run down and lacked privacy (?) It's actually pretty perfect.

Perfect place to stay with our family

  • 5 of 5

I love this special place of sea ranch and this house was a perfect landing spot. The house has a great location for breach, trail and bike rides with kids. Inside, we found the house to be clean and calming and well-equipped for cooking, grilling, playing, reading, etc. If only we could have stayed for longer! we will be back!

Shell Beach House

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed at numerous houses within a span of decades. This is one set up which has the common areas (kitchen and living room) on the top floor. It was close to trails and it was a nice stay. Nice. Suggestion: The hot tub did not work well, I had to find the reboot and it never got hot - though I was told the maintenance person looked at it. There needs to be instructions given - the dials are old and worn; I don't know if they work. Regardless of that, it was a very nice stay.
