About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 1 Half Baths, Sleeps 9

Watch diving pelicans and playful harbor seals from the comfort of home at this dog-friendly Sea Ranch retreat, an oceanfront escape with several decks, a private hot tub, access to community pools and saunas, and a spectacular location with views of the surrounding bluffs.

Beautifully positioned on the edge of Gualala Point Regional Park and the Bluff Trail, this two-level home is ideal for hikers, whale watchers, and guests in search of serene relaxation. You'll be just one mile north of the Sea Ranch Golf Links; two miles north of the heated pool, saunas, and tennis courts at the Del Mar Recreation Center; and three miles south of downtown Gualala.

The interior layout maximizes the surrounding natural beauty, with an upstairs living space, complete with a wood stove, that overlooks the ocean. Couples and multi-generational families with also feel right at home, thanks to the separate in-law unit (connected by an outdoor walkway) with a kitchenette, one bedroom, and one full bathroom.

Come inside to find an upscale home bathed in sunlight, with plentiful windows, lofty ceilings, and built-in window seats for admiring the view. Pick up a few logs for the wood stove at the Surf Market in Gualala, and settle in for a quiet evening of crossword puzzles, card games, and a few cable shows on the flatscreen TV.

Begin each morning by walking your dog on the nearby Bluff Trail, keeping your eyes open for whale spouts in the distance (please note that a small nightly pet fee and a one-dog limit apply). Back at home, prepare breakfast in the full kitchen, which offers sleek stainless steel appliances (including a dishwasher), a bar counter with seating for three, and an adjacent six-person dining room table.

Bring your coffee and the newspaper outside to the deck, where you can listen to the ocean waves and prepare the gas grill for a lunchtime barbecue. Head downstairs to take a dip in the private hot tub on the patio, or visit the Del Mar Recreation Center to swim a few laps, practice your serve, or relax in the sauna.

With four bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms, Pelican Bluff will accommodate as many as nine guests. In the main part of the house, you'll find three ground floor bedrooms with a king-size bed, two queen-size beds, and one twin bed. The in-law suite offers a queen-size bed, a wood stove, and a second wall-mounted flatscreen TV. Additional amenities include WiFi throughout the home and a private washer/dryer for your bathing suits and pool towels.

Thanks to its spectacular Sea Ranch location, this home will show you one of the most enchanting stretches of the Northern California Coast. Spend your days hiking or jogging on the Bluff Trail, watching for migrating whales in Gualala Point Regional Park, or practicing your drive at the neighboring Sea Ranch Golf Links.

Hop in the car to peruse the little shops and galleries in downtown Gualala, and pick up a few pizzas for dinner at the Upper Crust in town. Take an incredible drive on the coast north to Mendocino, or simply enjoy an unforgettable sunset at the Point Arena Lighthouse 21 miles north.

The incredible landscapes of Sea Ranch will be just outside your door - don't wait another minute to book this oceanfront home!

Location- wow!

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful big house with the very BEST location!! Oceanfront home with plenty of room for the 6 of us, views from every window including the hot tub, trail right out front, everything clean and tidy. Only down sides: no working TV (not a huge deal, but good for folks to know) and outdoor grill also non-functional (this was a bummer for the cooks among us). Super easy check in/check out process. Thank you!

Outstanding views from a nice large house

  • 4 of 5

The views are extraordinary. <br />

<br />

The location is close to the sea, hiking trails are just out the back, and the golf course is within sight. This is a large house with an "in-law" unit and is well laid out: the common area is removed from the bedrooms and we can enjoy visiting without disturbing everyone. The stove top, oven, fridge, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker and toaster all worked well. We also appreciated the wi-fi which worked very well. The hot tub was very nice. <br />

<br />

The house, however, by being close to the salt water, can be affected by fog. The television did not work; we saw a message on screen that there was no signal. <br />

<br />

Did we mention the great views? <br />

Stunning and restorative

  • 5 of 5

This house is the perfect place for a family getaway. There is a guest house for added privacy, and a master suite with the same effect. The kitchen balcony was the perfect location to watch a meteor shower we didn't realize would be happening. Ample parking, bike storage, kitchen, gathering, and dining space etc. Access to the bluff trail was a huge bonus. And the views are unbeatable - almost unbelievable. My favorite part was the reading nook in the stairway. Probably the best place I've ever stayed on vacation!

Family Connection

  • 5 of 5

Got the family together for some time at the beach. House was clean and amazing. Had enough room and enough privacy for everyone. Walking trail right outside the back door which kept us busy. Perfect sunsets every evening. Would definitely revisit.
