WE WELCOME YOU TO YOUR HOME-AWAY-FROM-HOME
Welcome. Welcome to a Sea Ranch oceanfront retreat perched atop a scenic bluff. Welcome to a place where whales breach in the bay, deer almost eat out of your hand, and seals sun themselves on rocks – to a cozy retreat just a short drive from the gastronomic delights of Mendonoma (Sonoma/Mendocino) and the bustle of San Francisco. Welcome to your dog-friendly home-away-from-home in lovely Sea Ranch, California.

Students of Architecture, Explorers of Nature:
Sea Ranch is famous for what the L.A. Times calls, a “utopian experiment that offers top-drawer architects building low-key homes.” Many buildings are listed in the National Register of Historic Places. In the spring Architectural tours are offered. While walking among Sea Ranch’s treasures, you may discover other natural treasures along the way. Edible mushrooms pop up after a winter’s rain, redwood groves amaze you with their height and strength, cypress groves proved a maze to the ocean’s bluff, and wildlife whether on land, in the air, or deep in the sea, never ceases to amaze.

Remodel Completed in 2021:
The remodel by famed architect, Obie Bowman in 2020-2021 expanded our spectacular views to include a western ocean vista. All new decor provides for a sleek and stylish new look. Plus there’s a game room separate from the living space. Kids and adults alike enjoy family game night, separate TV viewing, or just curl up with a good book as they gaze out to the ocean from the window’s bench seat. The game room’s barn door also provides privacy for nomadic workers or students studying remotely.
The principal bedroom provides direct access to the courtyard through a sliding glass door with internal blinds that easily close for privacy. Enjoy your choice of a reading nook or TV viewing.
