Grand Welcome Vacation Rentals

House was ok. Outdated with stains. Hot tub didn’t work. ☹️ Upstairs bedrooms too bright to sleep in
The house was in a good location and at a decent price. Hot tub didn’t work and there were no instructions either. 2 of the 4 burners of stove didn’t work, so full meal was difficult to have everything done at the same time. Home is very outdated and has stained carpet and couch. Other than that, it was fine and worth the money. We had a big issue with ants in the kitchen, needs some new ant traps. It worked well for our family other than the items i listed.
The price was lower than other properties, but...
There's cheap, and then there's inappropriately cut corners. The blankets and dishes were not clean when we arrived, and we had paid a cleaning fee with our reservation. We also were given directions in an email about checking in that since we had a code to our door, we did not need to pick up a welcome packet, which turned out not to be true because we received a threatening note on our car about arresting us for trespassing. When we went into town the next day to get the welcome package with the appropriate permits, nobody was in the office and the phone number left as the 24 hour point of contact did not connect with anybody, and it should be pointed out that only one of us had any cell reception at all. I booked this place because it seemed well priced for the area, but now it just seems like an indicator of bad service.
Beautiful site but could use some updating
We had a wonderful time in the area. The house is okay. Some of the shades are hard to pull up and down and the pillows were a bit flat. Loved the view! None of these things would keep me from going back again though.
Annual Gals Weekend!
Had a lovely weekend with my Gal Pals!
The house was quite comfortable and clean! The hot tub was a bonus and the view was gorgeous! LOL...The house has some unsual creaks sounding like Sliding Doors and Footsteps...all while everyone was sleeping! Made for a fun morning of ghost stories! We would definitely come back!
We love Sea Ranch. This was a peaceful house. The only downside was it was a little run down
Nice peaceful place. A little run down. The couch was old and had a lot of stains and the beds are super old and creaky. Every then makes a loud squeak that the room below hears. But still we had a good time here at beautiful Sea Ranch.
The house was great! We wanted a quiet get away and that is what we got. The best feature of the house is the open, carpeted living room and big window view of the meadow and trees, with a glimpse of the ocean. The house is built up and overlooks the meadow, first in a series of houses that are spaced adequately apart. There is a TV and stereo, but bring CDs if you want your own music. Internet is also included.
There is a loft area above the living room which was absolutely perfect for my quilting project I brought along. It has a TV, couch, desk and lots of light. Above the loft is a bathroom and small bedroom with 2 twin beds. And above that is the 3rd bedroom with a queen bed which is kinda like the "watchtower" overlooking the meadow and has the best ocean view. The bedroom is small but a sweet respite away from the rest of the house. Perfect for a teen or an afternoon napper!
The kitchen is fine and worked great for us. It is well stocked with utensils and other things you might need. It is not a luxury kitchen and is a bit dated, but everything was in great condition. The stove is electric which we aren't used to. Bring kitchen towels if that is what you like, otherwise they provide paper towels. The garbage was tricky to find but we found it located at the end of the covered parking garage in a little room with a door (away from critters).
The master bedroom is off the living room and is convenient. It is a bit dark and at first we wanted more light, however, we found it was wonderful for sleeping-in! No luxe here either, but a good bed and comfortable room with a TV. No complaints.
The deck off the living room was really nice with an open feel and great views. The hot tub is small (4 people max) but just fine for us. Water temperature was perfect. Comfortable table and chairs. We spent a lot of time there!
We loved that the house was located near the rec center pool (walking distance). Such an amazing lap pool and tennis courts. You can also walk outside to mountain side trails as well as ocean front trials. Sea Ranch has wonderful trails!
If you want quiet come to Sea Ranch...no noise pollution! Also, no light pollution! The stars outside on the deck were plentiful and gorgeous.
One suggestion would to have a better "To Do" list of activities in the welcome binder, i.e. hiking trail maps, restaurants, local attractions, events.
We loved our stay and will definitely come again! The mountainside of the highway is quite lovely!
