Destination guide

Sea Ranch is California at its rural best

This rugged coastline is California at its very best. When you stay at a Sea Ranch vacation rental, you'll have a remote and windswept land that lends itself perfectly to hiking. This is a place to leave your daily worries and responsibilities back home, along with your cellphone, and immerse yourself in rural life. Whether you're kicking back on the beach, keeping your eyes peeled for migrating whales around the bay, or swinging your clubs on the 18-hole course, you can close off the day with a lip-smackingly good seafood feast in one of the local restaurants before returning to your private rental.

Things to do

Whimsical chapels at Sea Ranch

It might be small, but there are some top spots to check out when you stay in a Sea Ranch vacation rental. The whimsical Sea Ranch Chapel is like no other place of worship you've ever seen. The structure, designed by architect James Hubbell, was created entirely from locally-sourced shells and wood. For more art, swing by the Timber Cove Resort to see the "Peace Obelisk", a 90-foot-high sculpture which overlooks the sea from a rocky cliff face. It was built in the early 1960s and was inspired by the Cuban missile crisis. Close off the day watching the sunset from your waterside Sea Ranch vacation rental.


Hike the coastal trails at Sea Ranch

The winding coastal trails are the biggest attraction in this part of Sonoma. The smell of the salt air and the sounds of sea accompany you when you hike down along the shoreline, hopping from beach to beach. If you work your way along the Bluff Top Sea Ranch Access Trail at the right time of year, be sure to look out to sea because you're not going to want to miss catching a glimpse of whales fluking around the bay. Sound like too much effort? When the sun shines, you can take your clubs up to the 18-hole Sea Ranch Golf Links for an afternoon teeing off instead.


Escape the stuffy cities for Sea Ranch

Sea Ranch high season runs between June and October, when it sees an influx of vacationers who escape the stuffy cities in favor of this rural coastal paradise. The temperature hovers around the 80s, cooled a little by the breeze running off the sea. Though the weather is glorious around the summer months, if you don't mind a little winter drizzle among some wonderfully bright days, you can score a Sea Ranch vacation rental over winter and save yourself a heap of cash. If the weather turns, you can always dive into one of the local eateries for a spot of seafood.

Natural features

Noisy seals and buzzy hummingbirds at Sea Ranch

You'd be hard pushed to stay in a Sea Ranch vacation rental and not see the odd critter. In fact, if you're lucky, you might see a whole host of animals, both on land and sea. Much of the land around Sea Ranch is communal, providing an ideal place for wildlife to roam free. Depending on when you visit, you could be spotting buzzy hummingbirds along the trails, or noisy seals down on the beach. They might be elusive, but bobcats and mountain lions are not that uncommon and slink around the shoreline in search of smaller prey, like squirrels and raccoons.
