Guest book inscriptions are ubiquitous with vacation rentals. As a guest on vacation, we always read the reviews, adventures, and insights of the guests who preceded us. We also take great care in writing our own reviews and advice for those guests following us.
As the owner of Sea Ranch Abalone Bay, we eagerly open our Abalone Bay vacation rental guest book to read for an insight into our guests’ vacations. We love that they share their adventures, how they enjoyed their stay, and to see if we need to address an issue they discovered while enjoying their Sea Ranch vacation.
Our Vacation Rental Guest Book, Not to Be Confused with “The Guest Book”
Thankfully, ours is nothing like that of the TBS show, The Guest Book, a comedy series created by Greg Garcia. The show is based on his habit of writing fictitious stories in the guest books of various rental cabins to freak out the next renters.
Our guests provide us with thoughtful reviews in our vacation rental guest book. Though, we did have one inscription in our first book suggesting Abalone Bay was haunted due to all the creaking from a stormy night’s wind buffeting the house…
Or was it?!
Thank You for Your Review
Below are the pages from our most recent guest book. We wanted to share with you what our guests have said about their vacation in Sea Ranch Abalone Bay.
We thank all our guests for taking the time to leave their comments while on vacation and look forward to reading yours soon!
A Magical Stay
You Thought of Everything
“You thought of everything,” our first review extols.
Our goal is to make sure our guests have a carefree, worry-free vacation. We know how challenging it can be to make sure you pack everything you’ll need for your vacation.
It’s our hope to make that a bit easier for you by providing many of the items that will make your vacation relaxing. Of course, we also hope it will prompt you to leave 5-star reviews in our vacation rental guest book.
Experience Nature at Your Doorstep
“We observed quail, fox, deer, whales, seals, and various sea birds” from the dining room and living room windows.”
There are also turkeys, blue herons, and so many other wonderful creatures. There’s also the meadow grasses and flowers, soaring redwood trees, the cypress hedgerows that you mustn’t miss!
Spotless, Luxurious, Peaceful…But…
We strive to make sure everything is in good working order. However, on occasion, you may find something is not working as well as it should. Your reviews in our guest book help us stay on our toes and hold us accountable.
When you do spot something not working or amiss we most definitely want you to give our property manager or us a call immediately. We’ll make it a point to get right out and fix it.
Guest Book Reviews Include Wishes for a Return Visit
Sadly, all good vacations must come to an end.
But don’t forget, when you do return to Sea Ranch Abalone Bay to book directly with us to save significantly on online booking fees! Then don’t forget to mention in your good reviews about how much you saved when you book with us directly.
Comfy Beds, Lots of Games Worthy of 10 Stars!
In our bookcase cabinet, you’ll find games for adults and games for kids. We also provide books for kids and adults as well.
Stargazing from the hot tub is a favorite of all our guests when reviewing in our guest book. And we have to admit to enjoying it ourselves!
Guest Review for the Holidays
Reviews of a Reprieve from Fall’s Fires
Sadly, our California fall season is also our high fire season. We are pleased we were able to offer a reprieve to the smoke-filled skies our guests had back home.
Vacation Rental Guest Book Turned Recipe Book
Thanksgiving Favorite – Especially for Our Inner Circle
We love that our guests take the time to write great reviews in our vacation rental guest book when on a special holiday. Thanksgiving is one of, if not the most popular times at Sea Ranch. In fact, it is always the first date to be booked when we open up our calendar!
To be sure you’ll know of our availability for the upcoming holidays be sure to join our Inner Circle, especially for Thanksgiving and Christmas 2019! We have closed our calendar from August to the end of the year in anticipation of remodeling and building a new garage. We’ll inform our Inner Circle members first of our Thanksgiving and Christmas availability.
A Special Holiday Recipe Leads to a Recipe Cookbook
We thank our most recent reviewer for gifting us her bundt pan and for the recipe to go with it! If you know you’ll be doing a special meal and must have a unique cooking tool or pan to make the magic happen, don’t hesitate to contact us. We’ll be happy to try and have all you need right at hand. And if you should forget that special recipe we have cookbooks to help you out and of course there’s always Google Search available through our free WiFi.
But for now, and with great thanks to our awesome vacation rental guest, we leave you with this scrumptious recipe!
