Amazing views even in 2 of the 3 bedrooms. Very well stocked kitchen, hiking trails right outside. A perfect week away with friends and our dog. We’re already planning our return!

Wonderful location and property. Everything worked. Everything was clean. Would stay again. The only downside is driving 6 miles away to check in and return the keys.

Sea Ranch stay

This is a great home and location. Great views from all rooms. This is the best stocked rental home ever! Adult and pup seals were visible from a few hundred feet down the trail in front of the house. And more seals seen the next beach north still on the Sea Ranch Property. It would be better if I didn't have to go to the office to pick up and drop off the keys. Overall we had a great time and hope to return

Fantastic place to stay

by Sara O.
What a fantastic house - beautiful location, clean house, comfortable beds, nice linens, thick towels, a kitchen with everything you need and plenty of plates, cups, glasses, etc. In short, we did not have a single complaint about this house and would love to go back. What a shame, then, that in order to rent this lovely home, one has to deal with the severely-lacking-in-customer-service folks at Grand Welcome. The clunky check in and out process that forces you to drive an extra 20 minutes to pick up and drop off keys. The terse conversations with staff when requesting information. And the somewhat convoluted and contradictory instructions received via email and with the keys. It all took something away from a lovely stay.

A delightful home with exceptional views

by Arati P.
The views are unparalleled! Other reasons to love this home: it was easy to heat and keep cozy or cool down, the beds were great, the bathrooms and kitchen worked well, and the kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans and many utensils. As others have noted, it's a slight extra hassle to go up to Gualala to pick up and drop off keys - unclear why rentals are set up this way. But an exceptional experience otherwise.
Hello, Arati! Thanks for this great review! SO happy that you enjoyed the Haltwhistle West property and we'd love to host you again soon! We value your feedback as it helps us to improve.

Wonderful stay!

by Mary Margaret M.
The location and the practical set up of this home suited us perfectly. We were all working remotely and getting outside every chance we could. Frequent trips to check on the harbor seal moms and pups were a highlight. So was the spectacular night sky. Cooking was easy with everything we needed. All good!

Our Haltwhistle stay

by Barbara

This home is beautiful with full views of the crashing surf. The home has more than adequate heat and nice furniture so we were very comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked and the beds are comfortable. Our only problem was finding the Welcome Center to pick up our packets. We expected it to be close to the rental and instead we had to drive to Gualala and then back to the house.

Great condo

by Elizabeth B.

A group of five of us stayed here for a ski weekend. Cozy condo, very clean, and a great location. Picking up and dropping off the keys was very easy as well. We drove to Eagle and parked there each day but the shuttle is accessible as well. Fireplace, well equipped kitchen, and plenty of extra linens. Well worth the price.

The location is extraordinary,the home is extremely comfortable.

by ann s.
The location is extraordinary! Very comfortable home...nothing better than sitting by the fireplace Gazing at the ocean a stones throw away. Having 3 bedrooms & baths were perfect! We would definitely recommend this amazing home. The owners’ daily rental fee is very fair. However, the added fees by the management company are extremely high...really limited the number of days we could stay!

Absolutely stunning ocean bluff! A perfect place.

by Kristin C.
My family and I had a wonderful experience! The only negative would be that the time went by too fast! Have been vacationing in Sea Ranch for 45 years and this place takes the cake. Wonderful two master bedrooms and views galore. Will definitely come back here again!

The views are what you are paying for at this house. I would buy this house in a heartbeat. The house and furnishings are just average for a rental. Could use some TLC! But overall wonderful, I am so relaxed, I will stay there again.

The location was paradise for wildlife photographer but the property needs some work

by Teresa K.
The location was fantastic as I am a photographer. I got some amazing shots of harbor seals & birds of prey. The property lacks some basic necessities. There were no dish towels which I thought was really odd. The “tv” is basically a small computer monitor to which you could dvds ...but no dvds were on the property. The home guide needs to be updated as well. It gave the impression that there was no WiFi. We didn’t realize we did have it until a few days later when we looked at the packet the house keys were in from the property manager. Beware ! Doors are set to lock behind you. I myself got locked out twice ... If you love board games & enjoy a spectacular view & wildlife you will love this house! The living room was very comfy & a perfect spot to soak up the sun through the windows.

Views were wonderful

by Cynthia G.
Location and views were to die for. Loved that 3 couples each had their own bathroom. Wish there had been an outdoor table and chairs, a hot tub and kitchen towels. Nice that linens and bath towels were provided, along with soaps and shampoo. First house I rented at Sea Ranch that actually had dish soap, new sponge, trash bags etc. Typically I bring my own. Furnishing were worn and house has some delayed maintenance, but I was aware of that before renting (for example screen door difficult to open).
