Overview

About the property

3BR, 2.5 bath, 4-person hot tub, 3 decks with ocean views, minutes to beach

Discover summer at the Heron House. Sunny decks with ocean views and just a 15 minute walk to the beach at Gualala Park. This gorgeously appointed home was renovated in 2012. Only a few minutes walk to the Coastal Bluff Trail, this home has it all. Dog friendly, redwood hot tub, secure courtyard, modern furnishings, organic bedding, a chef's kitchen with all the modern appliances, and high speed fiber optic wifi. Three decks with ocean views and a gas-fired BBQ grill. Just minutes from the beach at Gualala Point Park, this location is also convenient to Gualala shops and grocery stores. Bring your binoculars for great birding along the trails and Gualala River.

The home is designed with a reverse floor plan on two levels. Walk in the ground floor from the attached garage with your luggage for handy delivery to the two full suite bedrooms. Each ground level bedroom is furnished with a king size bed, high quality bedding, TV, end tables and reading lamps, and smartly designed closet space. The master bedroom's sitting area is filled with afternoon light. Comfy seating allows for reading or reflection. Access either the south ground level deck or the inner secure courtyard and redwood hot tub from this bedroom. Bathrooms have showers with pull down teak benches, and are stocked with plenty of towels. Laundry area with full size washer / dryer is located in the garage.

Walk up a half flight to the landing for a view of the courtyard, bird feeder and the northern boundary of the Sea Ranch, bordering Gualala Point Regional Park. Continue up the stairs to the great room where the spotless and modern kitchen awaits. The large counter, bar stools, wine chiller and well stocked cabinets make for fun group cooking. Appliances include a slow cooker, food processor, toaster, microwave, blender, hand blender, Nespresso machine, 8-cup coffee maker, tea kettle and coffee press. Pots and pans, baking equipment and pantry staples are on hand.

The living room features comfy leather seating and ocean views. Watch out the living room or kitchen windows for the great blue heron who regularly visits the good hunting grounds in the commons and the golf course. There is a dining table for six with a remote controlled gas fireplace. Games, cards, books and magazines are available. There is a Sonos player in the living room--download the free app to play your own music or free channels.

Off the dining area is an elevated deck with a double chaise, chair and ocean views. The south facing deck has ocean views and seating for four at the bar height teak table and a barbecue grill with a fixed propane line, so no canisters to worry about refilling. The third bedroom, also on the upper level, doubles as the media room with a large screen HD TV and cable channels to choose from, or stream from your favorite apps. A brand new sofa sectional opens to a pull out bed, best for children or short adults. A half bath is located next to this room.

Heron House is a refreshing refuge to get away from it all. Housekeeping service is available during extended stays, a handyman service is available 24/7 for emergencies and there is regular professional upkeep of the hot tub.

About Deldi Reyes

I live in Oakland, work in the City and enjoy all California has to offer with my wonderful greyhounds, rescues from the racing industry.

Deldi Reyes purchased this house in 2016

Why Deldi Reyes chose North Coast

The Sea Ranch is a special place--rugged, bracing and full of life. Why not?

What makes this house unique

I fell in love with how livable this home is. It's modern, filled with light, comfortable and dog friendly. The beach at Gualala Point Park is just a short walk away, hiking for miles starts out the front door and the town of Gualala is just minutes away.

Best house in Sea Ranch

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, clean home that is modern and well kept. Well stocked and appointed kitchen and great deck bbq. A short hike to the gualala river beach, which is a great open stretch, perfect for dogs. Hot tub sits in such a beautiful garden; we spent most of our time there or on one of the many decks. Deldi is thorough in pre-stay communication and all was clear and easy. We all sat around and fantasised about staying forever! Thank you so much!!

Beautiful, spacious getaway

Gorgeous location, beautiful garden, bird feeders! All these extras plus a wonderful home. Our family, pug included, enjoyed our stay very much. The home is well-appointed and well-equipped, including kitchen gadgets, hot tub, gas grill, and a tasty selection of dvds, books and magazines. High recommend..be sure to hike in the State Park just behind the home.

Perfect Oasis

  • 5 of 5

The whole family had such a great time at Heron House. It was the perfect home base to explore Sea Ranch and the area. We enjoyed the pools and trails, and the close proximity to the beach. The house had everything you could want - my kids were so enamoured with the TVs in every room. Thanks again Deldi!

Beautiful home recently remodeled very impressed

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. My wife did not want to leave. :-) we will obviously come back and stay again in the near future. The home was recently remodeled. The property was beautiful and the owner was very helpful. I was surprised to find the refrigerator had some condiments. We decided to use the barbecue and cook some steaks on our last night stay which was wonderful. My wife and I have stayed in Gualala and Mendocino how many times and I would have to say this was the nicest place that we have stayed at and also the most enjoyable highly recommended.

Gorgeous Home Makes a Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at Heron House for my birthday with our friends. It was the perfect spot to have a relaxing getaway, and we loved the house! The house is modern with upscale finishes. The bedrooms were large and had lovely comfy bedding and the bathrooms are gorgeous- they even supply fluffy robes! The hot tub is well maintained and a perfect spot to stargaze. The kitchen is fully stocked with any supply you would need to whip up a meal, and there is a grill out back. We would book this property again in a heartbeat.

Comfortable, quiet, beautiful... perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Heron House over the New Year's holiday with our children and our parents, and had an amazing stay.

The house is gorgeous, and modern, and very comfortable. The views straight to the ocean made waking up a dream, and the access to the coastal trail, and Gualala Point state park were a major bonus. The kitchen is the focal point of the home and it's expansive and very well stocked. The old-styled wooden hot tub was comfortable and was a great evening spot to see the stars and hear the waves crashing. The home is at the North end of the Sea Ranch property, which makes it very easy and quick to get to Gualala for groceries or a restaurant meal, and very close to Shell Beach.

Deldi, the owner was incredibly helpful before we arrived, as well as during our visit, and having that care taken from her was valuable as we navigated a new home. We hope and plan to be back for another visit soon!

Additional information about rental rates

Property Damage Protection $59
Pet Fee $75 + Tax
Cleaning fee $150 + Tax
Tax Rate 15.5%

Rates are subject to change until a reservation is confirmed.
Understanding the tax rate: Effective January 1, 2017, Sonoma County increased its tax rate is 12%. In addition, the Sea Ranch Association requests that all owners on the rental program (whether managed privately or via a rental company) remit a 3.5% tax. This is why the tax rate appears as 15.5%. I do not charge separate hot tub fee. The processing fee is imposed and collected by VRBO.
