Shining Sea is a beautiful vacation home located in the Sea Ranch. Broad ocean views grace every room of this large and spacious retreat. Centrally located on a quiet cul-de-sac, guests will find themselves within an easy 5-minute walk to One-Eyed Jack's playground, Shell Beach, Tide Pool Beach, Seal Rookery, Guided Monarch Nature Trail, and the Sea Ranch Chapel. Up to 6 guests can fit comfortably inside this vacation home, making it great for a family or friend getaway.

An additional family room downstairs has a large couch, game table,and 50" 4K flat screen TV, ready for your gamers or movie fans. The family room is suitable for entertaining as there are films, books, puzzles, and a game closet for all ages.

Alongside the living room is a newly renovated (spring 2020) cook’s kitchen. This well-equipped kitchen has a gas stove, and the enclosed backyard garden has fresh herbs. A chef will love cooking yummy treats and delicious meals in here. When your home cooked meal is ready to be served, call everyone over to the dining table, which seats six, or dine alfresco on the back deck. Fire up the propane grill for a juicy burger or side of salmon. Outdoor furniture is set up for you to dine, drink, and unwind under the Northern California sun. All of your guests will want a turn soaking in the private hot tub. This is also the best spot to stargaze from at night. A new washer and dryer (added Sept 2020) inside are handy for wet bathing suits.

As the night comes to an end, there are three bedrooms to choose from. The master bedroom is furnished with a luxurious California King-size bed, TV with DVD player and streaming video. An attached private bath has a spacious vanity and walk in shower, and a separate exit just steps from the hot tub on the enclosed deck. The first guest bedroom holds a Queen-size bed.

Truly unbelievable!

by emily f.

This was one of the best VRBO experiences of my life -- and I've used the site quite a bit. The house was immaculate, spacious, SO well-appointed (the kitchen has literally every appliance you could ever want; the bookshelves are filled with every kind of book imaginable; the game closet is SO fun). It's 5 minutes from the ocean, a short drive to Gualala for anything you might need from a grocer, and feels exceptionally quiet and private. I can't rave enough about the house and the obvious care that went into providing this experience.

Best location

by Leslie

This is the best stocked, best located house to beautiful trails and nearby beaches. We rented here because of the mention of quality towels and sheets and herbs in the inner garden as well as fresh kitchen herbs and basics. Actually more than basics - I had brought my own breakfast oatmeal and had hoped for some brown sugar - sure enough there it was. Fresh olive oil - it went on and on. Just like home. Even an ice cream maker in the freezer. The house is situated perfectly on the lot so that the morning sun hits the deck off the kitchen and showcases the sunsets after dinner. Loved the hot tub off the master bath. The beautiful wall quilt hangings reflect the love of simple and personal art. This is a restful home that celebrates the peaceful surroundings. Explicit directions made the TV operation easy so we could enjoy the US Open Tennis when we were not out walking on the beaches and trails. We appreciate such a thoughtfully presented home that offers complete relaxation. We hope to go back again soon.

Wonderful

by B. Leanne

The Shining Sea is a wonderful place to stay! Well kept, well stocked, and very clean. A living area as well as the kitchen is on the second floor, and boast a fantastic view. The kitchen if fully stocked with just about anything you will need, including sugar, flour, oil, and spices. There is a closet that is overflowing with games and puzzles to keep you entertained if the weather is not so good for outdoor activities. There are also lots of books to peruse if just want to lounge on the couch. There is WIFI available in the home along with multiple TVs with sound system and bluetooth technology. If you have Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime accounts just put in our password and you are set to go. My family and I had a wonderful stay and would defiantly stay again!

Love this home

by Lehua

What a special place! The house has an impressive game and puzzle closet for kids and adults. Location is great for walking to the beach. Bring a wagon if you’re gonna have tons of stuff for kids. The downstairs tv room is perfect for a kids hangout. Bring foil or plastic wrap but other than that this kitchen is stocked with all you need to cook

Wonderful, well equipped home with great views

by Kate C.

Our family of 4 stayed at Shining Sea over the holidays. It’s a comfortable home with a spectacular view and great access to all Sea Ranch has to offer. The kitchen is amazingly well equipped and we enjoyed cooking all of our meals there. Bedrooms were comfortable as well. We all enjoyed the hot tub and the great views. We had come with games and puzzles, but found that the house was stocked with many more. We found the house clean and well organized. Thank you!

Comfortable & well-appointed

by Petrina W.

This vacation rental is a nicely decorated, comfortable, well-appointed, tidy 3-bedroom house in Sea Ranch. The layout is a bit different with the kitchen, dining & living area upstairs and the bedrooms downstairs. The kitchen is well-stocked with every manner of cooking utensils and spices; there are ample sheets, towels, blankets. The hot tub is clean, new and quite hot. It's closer to Hwy 1 than the sea but you can't hear the road noise and it's in walking distance to the beautiful Sea Ranch Chapel and Shell Beach, among other walking trails. There's also a full entertainment system and a closet full of games and puzzles. Only complaints were no bluetooth stereo upstairs and not enough garbage bags. Otherwise, a perfect getaway for a family or a several couples; we would rent again.

Thank you for your review. We hope to host you again.

2018 Started our Amazing!

by Joe D.

Very nice. Clean close to the beach and very comfortable. Being recent victims of three Tubbs Fire we enjoyed starting 2018 there. My only complaint was living room searing was limited. Game closet amazing and hot tub was wonderful. Weather was perfect it was a well needed vacation! Thank you!

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to let us know how much you enjoyed your stay at Sea Ranch! We would love to have you back, please let us know if we can help you with a future booking. Sincerely, Customer Care - Sea Ranch Vacation Rentals

Great home

by Karen S. 
This was a great home and we enjoyed every moment EXCEPT when we discovered there were no sheets or towels throughout the house and it was too late to contact the company that manages the unit! Uncomfortable first night! And they never listened to the phone message we left. We had to actually visit their office to get the sheets & towels and make the beds ourselves! And of course the sheets we received were not complete sets. Not too impressed with this managing company!

Response:
Hi Karen, We have reviewed the issue of no linens in the home with our staff. As of 2017, we have a new General Manager and a new housekeeping supervisor. As of May 2017, we now have a commercial laundry service provide higher quality supplies - we make the beds and set cotton bath towels in the home prior to renter arrivals. I apologize you experienced trouble with the linens during your stay last year, and do hope you consider these changes we've made for future travel vacation plans!

Great house!

by Dan S.

Loved the house, very well maintained. About a five minute walk to the beach which is perfect for an after dinner stroll. We had two babies with us and the house was such that the noise did not carry and keep people awake. The master bath is GORGEOUS leading out to a very nice hot tub and well kept yard. Kitchen is well stocked with all the tools you might need (looks like the owners are cooks) and even includes the basics (salt, pepper, oil, sugar). Wonderful operable windows can be opened to feel a sea breeze running through the house. Our negatives (minor): Kitchen counters are a bit vintage (early 90's?) but totally functional. Master bed is quite squeaky (no, not that, just getting in and out woke the baby) We would definitely return to this rental. Side note, owners have very good taste in literature.

Response:

Hi Dan, I am so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay, including the well stocked kitchen and location! We looked into your concerns, and did replace the bed -  with a California King! Thank you for sharing your experience and we look forward to hosting you again.
