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.

Perfect Ocean Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Heron House was an ideal location for a family birthday celebration.

Deldi's property is situated on the north end of Sea Ranch which is perfect for accessing Gualala Point Regional Park and beach and also the town of Gualala.

The home itself is beautiful and clean with exquisite attention to detail and lovely artwork.

"Well stocked kitchen" doesn't begin to describe the stylish dishes, pots and pans, and every gourmet kitchen utensil.

The round dinng table and lovely chandelier beckoned conversations and game playing.

We all loved the upstairs deck with barbecue and pub table looking out to the ocean.

Thanks, Deldi, for a comfortable home away from home in a gorgeous peaceful setting.

We'll be back!

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

We had a very comfortable two nights at the Heron House and really enjoyed our visit. You can't beat the stunning ocean view from the kitchen and living room. Comfy beds, modern bathrooms and a lovely hot tub. I hope to stay here again.

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!!

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.
