Overview

About the property

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

Spring is springing at the Sea Ranch! It's a beautiful time of year to enjoy the ocean views from the south deck with an espresso or mug of hot cocoa. Or, start your morning with a dip in the hot tub, just off the master bedroom patio entrance to the enclosed courtyard. Birds at the feeder and the clematis in bloom greet you. Enjoy preparing breakfast in the cook’s kitchen and savor the view of Fish Rock and the ocean from the great room’s counter, comfy couches or the dining table. The beach at Gualala Regional Park is just a 15 minute walk from the front door and you're at the bluff trail in five. This gorgeously appointed home is dog friendly, spotless, with a secure courtyard, modern furnishings, organic bedding, a chef's kitchen with all the modern appliances, and high speed fiber optic wifi. With three decks with ocean views and a gas-fired BBQ grill, the house is only a three mile drive to Gualala shops and grocery stores. Bring your binoculars for great birding along the trails and Gualala River. Heron House is a refreshing refuge to get away from it all, but when you’re ready to explore the local community, check out the Gualala Arts Center for information about the Sonoma-Mendocino Coast Whale & Jazz Festival in April, live music events and in May, a Mother’s Day concert and the Annual Fine Arts Fair. The Guest Guide Book in the living room contains suggestions for things to do, restaurant recommendations and trail maps.

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 en 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 cedar 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 where there is plenty of room to store your bikes for an afternoon ride.

Walk up a few steps 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, coffee grinder, 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 of the commons and the golf course. There is a dining table for six with a remote controlled gas fireplace. Games, cards, books, magazines and DVDs 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, Adirondack chair and ocean views.

The south facing deck has ocean views and seating for four at the bar height teak table with an umbrella for those sunny days, 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 satellite TV 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.

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 The Sea Ranch: The Sea Ranch is a unique community association of private homes, sited with careful attention to the natural landscape along a 10-mile stretch of the Sonoma County coast in Northern California. It is internationally known for its distinctive architecture, the sensitivity of its land planning, and community-based stewardship of the natural environment. TSR features over forty miles of hiking trails, some newly opened, including 6 public access points to the beach, the historic Sea Ranch chapel, stables, a dog park, community garden and The Sea Ranch Lodge (restaurant and shopping). Although the 18-hole golf course is not part of the Sea Ranch, it is open to all and easily reached from the Heron House. Your guest pass will allow you access to three recreation centers with outdoor heated pools, locker rooms, and saunas, half-basketball court, and tennis courts (amenities vary with each center). The Heron House is two miles north of Del Mar Center.

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 Sea Ranch

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.

Beautiful home & beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Sea Ranch for nearly 10 years, and this is one of the nicest homes we have stayed in. Very comfortable for us, our two (10 & 14 yr old) kids, and our labrador. Stocked and modern kitchen, great views & luxurious bathrooms. We love the houses close to Gualala beach. It's awesome for dogs and exploring, as well as late night star gazing.

Beautiful weekend at Sea Ranch

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Heron House. Lot's of time spent on the deck with views of the meadows and ocean. This house has everything you need; great kitchen, comfortable bedrooms, nice modern bathrooms, separate media room. Best house we have stayed at.

Absolutely Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at beautiful Heron House. The location so close to the bluffs was great. And the white water views were inspiring. The house had many amenities to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The owner Deldi Reyes was very responsive to any requests. We will be back!

Perfection.

  • 5 of 5

This is probably the nicest house I have ever stayed in. Everything about it is perfect - it is beautiful, well-appointed, spotless and new. You will love the gourmet kitchen, spacious living area, cozy fireplace, hot tub, and relaxing sound from the top-notch sound system. It is as peaceful as can be. And the view! Large windows provide an ocean view and each bedroom has a deck. There is a second-story deck with a view that is perfect for drinks and a sunset. Or course the walking path along the ocean is spectacular, and the location of Deldi's house on the north end of the Sea Ranch property provides easy access to some of the best trails. As you can tell we were thrilled. Enjoy!
