Grand Welcome Vacation Rentals
- English, Spanish
It was the best vacation rental we have ever stayed.
Wonderful, well equipped home with great views
Our family of 4 stayed at Shining Sea over the holidays. It’s a comfortable home with a spectacular view and great access to all Sea Ranch has to offer. The kitchen is amazingly well equipped and we enjoyed cooking all of our meals there. Bedrooms were comfortable as well. We all enjoyed the hot tub and the great views. We had come with games and puzzles, but found that the house was stocked with many more. We found the house clean and well organized. Thank you!
2018 Started our Amazing!
Very nice. Clean close to the beach and very comfortable. Being recent victims of three Tubbs Fire we enjoyed starting 2018 there. My only complaint was living room searing was limited. Game closet amazing and hot tub was wonderful. Weather was perfect it was a well needed vacation! Thank you!
Hello! Thank you for taking the time to let us know how much you enjoyed your stay at Sea Ranch! We would love to have you back, please let us know if we can help you with a future booking. Sincerely, Customer Care - Sea Ranch Vacation Rentals
This was a great home and we enjoyed every moment EXCEPT when we discovered there were no sheets or towels throughout the house and it was too late to contact the company that manages the unit! Uncomfortable first night! And they never listened to the phone message we left. We had to actually visit their office to get the sheets & towels and make the beds ourselves! And of course the sheets we received were not complete sets. Not too impressed with this managing company!
We have reviewed the issue of no linens in the home with our staff. As of 2017, we have a new General Manager and a new housekeeping supervisor. As of May 2017, we now have a commercial laundry service provide higher quality supplies - we make the beds and set cotton bath towels in the home prior to renter arrivals. I apologize you experienced trouble with the linens during your stay last year, and do hope you consider these changes we've made for future travel vacation plans!
Overall a pretty nice place
First off.. we check in to the house. There are molding dishes in the sink, a coffee pot full of molded coffee. The beds were all slept in condition. We got a knock on the door at 8pm?!? It was the cleaning/laundry ladies with (the worst towels I've EVER used) in hand. They made the beds up.. I guess. The next morning I wake with another persons shirt in the foot area of the bed? Maybe the previous tenant?
Thanks for sharing your feedback. Our apologies that you had to experience these issues during your vacation. Your concerns have been addressed with our teams. The Sea Ranch team has tried to contact you regarding compensation. Please get back to us at your earliest convenience. Our office managing the home is also now under new management as of January 2017, including a new GM and a new housekeeping supervisor. We do hope you consider renting from us again in the future!
Loved the house, very well maintained. About a five minute walk to the beach which is perfect for an after dinner stroll.
We had two babies with us and the house was such that the noise did not carry and keep people awake.
The master bath is GORGEOUS leading out to a very nice hot tub and well kept yard.
Kitchen is well stocked with all the tools you might need (looks like the owners are cooks) and even includes the basics (salt, pepper, oil, sugar).
Wonderful operable windows can be opened to feel a sea breeze running through the house.
Our negatives (minor):
Kitchen counters are a bit vintage (early 90's?) but totally functional.
Master bed is quite squeaky (no, not that, just getting in and out woke the baby)
We would definitely return to this rental.
Side note, owners have very good taste in literature.
I am so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay, including the well stocked kitchen and location! We looked into your concerns, and did replace the bed - with a California King! Thank you for sharing your experience and we look forward to hosting you again.
