Beautiful week of stay

by Jenny
We stayed in this beautiful house for a week in the middle of September. Wish we could stay here forever! There are eight of us which makes this house a perfect fit, as they have four really large sized bedrooms. The two master suites have king beds. My favorite room has french door opens into the deck directly. I can see the ocean from my bed! And downstairs bedroom is the kids favorite they love the gigantic soft shark and shark beddings. Children also like that they are on separate floor away from adults:). We loved the huge cough with the view directly to blue sea. Deck is the best place to enjoy breakfast or brunch, of course with ocean view. Imagine having BBQ and dinner on the deck every day! Can’t think of any better costal vacation than this. We also love the private beach. We can see the gate to private beach right from the deck. Been either driving or walking there daily. Kids saw many baby seals. We also took our time exploring various hikes along the coast, as well as kayaking on Gualala river. Bowling ball beach is less than 5 min away. We took amazing pictures with low cloud and ocean mist framing bowling ball like rocks. My brother took a few to costco for large print. People in store asked to buy copies from him. Adults especially enjoyed barbecue and the tub. After the long hikes it feels so nice to soak in the tub with ocean view. It won’t be long before we come back, we are sure!

Enjoyed every single minute of our weekend stay!

by Jade
Lovely home with a great view! \"The living area is a grand, sweeping space of vaulted ceilings and large picture windows that offer panoramic views. Interiors are bright and sumptuous, with a luxurious couch, smart TV and crackling fireplace\". Views from grand room and upper deck are incredible, and everyone likes the hot tub, with the view of the ocean... Kids like the beautiful lights framing the tub and lower level deck... we didn\'t even think about turning on TV the first night Waking up early in the morning we saw amazing sun shining through layers of thin coastal fog. Once the fog melt away the sun feels so warm. LOVE to have breakfast at al-fresco table located on upper deck. The house is exactly as described: clean, comfortable. The view is AMAZING! Enjoyed every single minute of our weekend stay! Wish we could have stayed much, much longer.

AMAZING 11/10!

by Reed
My extended family stayed here for a couple days in June. This property was perfect for everyone (grandparents, cousins - 7 people total). The private beach was amazing to have easy access to, it was barely a 10 minute walk from the property. The kids saw seals on the water and the adults got to relax. The weather was also great and the view from the deck is really incredible. And everyone loved the hot tub both nights that we were there - it was super well lit and we loved how cute the lights were. In terms of management, my parents and I didn’t have any issues at all. Everything worked as advertised and we were surprised by how fast the internet was! A lot of the other retreat houses we’ve been at have had bandwidth issues with many users or spotty internet connection. Overall, 11/10 experience. Thank you and we can’t wait to be back soon!

Perfect Weekend Retreat!

by Lisa
Our group had a relaxing stay which was exactly what we were looking for. Definitely one of the cleanest places I\'ve visited too. The property is located a short walk from the ocean/beach, but the ocean view from the deck is amazing too and we enjoyed it all weekend. All in all, we couldn’t have asked for a better weekend experience along the coast. I would highly recommend it to anyone and we\'ll be back soon!
