Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Charming beach cottage in the desirable south end of Sea Ranch. Two bedrooms, each with king beds and separate bathrooms, large living room with wood burning fireplace, gourmet kitchen, vaulted wood ceilings, warm and sunny decks and beautiful views of ocean, meadow and mountains. A stone’s throw from the Bluff Trail and the ocean and a short walk to Pebble and Black Point Beaches and the Sea Ranch Lodge. Located on a quite, dead-end street far from the highway. Recently enhanced with skylights, new hot tub and deck, wine cooler, appliances, carpet, furniture, granite countertops, custom decorator touches and lots more. High Speed Wireless access, computer and iPod ready surround sound system!! Bring your work and all your tunes and stay an extra week.

The Sea Ranch is internationally known and revered for its attempt to blend man-made structures with their natural setting. This most picturesque area of California, 100 miles north of San Francisco dotted with distinctive homes, spreads for about ten miles on either side of Highway One in the coastal Sonoma County. The building design is unique in its architecture, and the challenge to 'live lightly on the land' is on-going.

With three swimming pools, saunas, tennis courts, a 18-hole championship golf course, and 45 miles of hiking trails that meander along the coastal cliffs, through meadows and forests, there is no shortage of outdoor activity for your Sea Ranch vacation. And after a hard day of having fun, soak in the spa, have a glass of wine and enjoy the sunset over the ocean.

Why Keith Brown chose North Coast California

Sea Ranch is without equal. The ocean, mountains, wildlife - a little something for everyone in one of the most pleasant and tranquil climates on the planet.

What makes this house unique

A four mile hike to Two Fish Bakery is definitely on the agenda to start each morning. The hike begins after stepping out the front door and into the coastal meadow which surrounds house. Slowly the pounding of the surf receeds as you make your way from the ocean and into the trees and up the ridge. Tall redwoods tower over head while ferns blanket the ground. Once conquering the ridge, a well-deserved sticky buns awaits at Two Fish and pleasant downhill walk home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really appreciate all of the attention to details that you and your wife obviously went through to make stays here enjoyable and comfortable. I have rented vacation houses for many years and can honestly say that your house is one of the best that I have encountered. Not only are the accommodations, furnishings and amenities nice, clean and comfortable, but all the little "homey" furnishings scattered around make your place feel very welcoming. The binder with all of the information is just amazing. I have never seen anything as well organized and instructive as that in a vacation rental. I mean, you even had instructions on use to use the light switches! The kitchen is well stocked with everything one needs to cook. One little suggestion is that it would have been nice if you had a dish drying rack available. We don't always like to use the dishwasher, especially when something just needs rinsing, so we hand washed quite a few things everyday and placed them on a towel on the counter top.

Great stay in Sea Ranch

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Keith made sure we had all the critical information we may need. The house is completely outfitted and in great shape. We brought our Golden Retriever and realized we had found the ultimate in "pet friendliness", down to doggie towels by the back door for muddy paws. While we were by ourselves, the house would be perfect for two couples. We plan to return here for our next visit to Sea Ranch.

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Keith Brown's house at Sea Ranch is clean, well-equipped, and convenient. We have stayed in this house multiple times, and we would highly recommend it to visitors who want to "get away from it all." Keith maintains the property well, and the house is very "comfortable."

This is a perfectly designed home in an incredible location with a beautiful view of the ocean.

  • 5 of 5

We had a peaceful and relaxing stay. The home is equipped with everything you could possibly need. From the charming decor and artwork to the comfortable beds, this VRBO is all about relaxation. Although we didn't use it, there is even a hot tub/spa. The views are spectacular. At night I could hear the sound of the surf. We should have stayed 3 nights instead of two. We are looking forward to a return trip.

Just Steps from the Ocean

  • 5 of 5

We have been visiting Sea Ranch now for over 15 years. Each year just seems to get better. Our stay this time was on Sea Meadow Drive # 55 just minutes from the ocean and the bluff. The property was immaculate. It had all the amenities that one could need. The hot tub was perfect and the deck looking out to the ocean spectacular. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and look forward to our next visit. A sincere thank you to Keith Brown for sharing his wonderful Sea Ranch home.
