 Outstanding 5-star experience! 

by Beth M

This wonderful home was a perfect coastal getaway located a short walk to incredible beaches with amazing tide pools. My family enjoyed the private hot tub, comfortable beds and a cozy fire in this inviting home with scenic views. We couldn’t be happier with the excellent Grand Welcome staff communication and highly recommend reaching out to them for any vacation rental needs.

Great location for a pet-friendly stay

by Theresa B.
We had plenty of room and loved being well positioned for beach access, viewing the seals, and great walking paths. The hot tub was especially nice and private.

Our Stay in Albatross House

by Joan G.
My husband and I stayed at Albatross House for ten days and enjoyed the location and layout of this vacation home. However, we noticed that the steamer for cooking vegetables was broken, the toaster did not operate properly, and there was not enough light in the bedroom. This home needs some work.

Reconnecting at Sea Ranch

by Ana B.
We were looking for a place to reconnect with the family that has been distanced for over an year. Sea Ranch is a great place for that. The house accommodated the five of us comfortably and the house seemed to have been cleaned before we got at the place. It is not convenient however, to have to go to Gualala to get the keys of the house, so I suggest that you place a box with a code at the property so we don't have to do the additional driving back and forth for just a key. There were no directions if the house would have sheets and towels and the agency never responded to our inquiring about it. I packet all of those and in the end we didn't need it because the house has these available for renters. So I suggest that you update the website with this type of info. We were prepared to do a barbecue with the food that we took with u, but the gas grill had not been maintained, and not only was very dirty, the gas was empty. I contacted the agency but because we only noticed it in the afternoon, I ended up having to cook everything at the oven. Another issue was with the fire place, it had a lot of logs to be used, and the house has instructions for using the fire place, but there were no matches. There were already comments about this from previous people renting the house but it remained not provided. The Sea Ranch condominium has a swimming pool and tennis courts but due to covid only the people that lives in there, were authorized to use these facilities. That was a little estrange. My daughters wanted to play tennis but because of these Covid regulations on the condominium, they didn't allow them to use the courts. There were simply nobody at the courts and they not only were full vaccinated, it made us wonder to who they would be actually passing covid to? We had passes to use the facilities with us that the agency provided with the package, and using a open court goes with the level of openness of the County, but they remained unacessible to them. Anyway, we had fun to be together and at Sea Ranch, which is a beautiful place. Not sure if I would go back though.

Sea Ranch

by Valerie C.

Our family of five fit into this house well. We noticed a few stains on the couch which we notified the rental company about and they said they would take care of it. Otherwise the house was a great location near beaches and right on the walking path. There is a wooden picnic table in deck area that we enjoyed a card game or two.

A nice cottage by the sea.. very quiet

by Michael W.

We came to sea ranch for the sea and the air (avoiding the hot and smoky bay area). The area was a great tonic. A nice cottage with most everything that we needed, a little dated. TH owners could provide a better guide to the electronics.. tough to navigate 4 remotes for each TV. But they had fast internet and streaming and that was nice

some issues. the local town Gualala, is largely shut down especially during the week. A few shops are open, and the restaurants offer few on site dining options, mostly take out... too cold to sit outside. Another issue was that VRBO guests cannot use the pools at the rec centers, only residents can. This should be communicated to future guests

Spring Break Trip with Kids

by Michael B.

Perfect family home in a beautiful location. Lovely little beach in walking distance (2 minutes). Main Sea Ranch trail is directly behind the house and met many walkers while relaxing on the deck. Hot tub is private and house had everything a family needs in a beach house; extra linens, barstools, sand toys, BBQ, fireplace, games, puzzles. Perfect family beach house!
