About the Property

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

Spring is springing at the Heron House. The garden is in bloom and backyard birding from the decks is in full swing. 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.

Additional information about rental rates

Fees and Rental Conditions:

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

Notes:

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.
