Vacation rental house. Sleeps 6, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms. No pets allowed.

315 Grey Whale Sea Ranch, CA 95497 United States

315 Unit 35A Lot 12; TOT ID# 2979N. Just 200 yards to the Bluff Trail. Broad views from most rooms to the ocean and across the meadow to the cypress hedgerow. You’ll have the feeling that yours is the only house at Sea Ranch. Inside, it’s warm cedar walls, pine ceilings, and furnishings that mix early 20th century classics, black-and-white photographs, 19th century oils, and worn Persian rugs alongside African crafts, found objects, and up-at-the-lake odds and ends.

With eight rooms and 2,585 square feet, 315 is bigger than most Sea Ranch houses. Especially appealing to groups of people because it offers a variety of gathering places inside and out and also is spread-out enough for everyone to find their own favorite nooks when they want to be alone. Built in 1985 and designed by Don Jacobs, the architect of many of the most liveable houses at Sea Ranch.

In the morning the east-facing garden room, with its glass walls and roof, is particularly appealing, especially in winter.

During the day people are drawn to the light-filled octagon room, which juts out into the meadow on the west side of the house. It’s also where everyone seems to come together at the end of the day when it’s time for drinks. In the summer, the sun sets behind a line of Bishop pine, cypress, and eucalyptus along the Salal Trail, and the way the eucalyptus leaves flicker as the orange light shimmers through them is magical. In the winter, the sun sets in the sea. Besides the setting sun, you’ll see foxes and families of deer; they come by on and off throughout the day, but they’re almost guaranteed to show up just before sunset.

It's the living room that’s the heart of the house, and this one has a great fireplace with a 15-foot-long hearth made from local field stones, some of them with the moss still on them. There’s a comfortable sofa and rattan chairs for lounging after dinner, a window seat, reading lamps, bookshelves, and entertainment system.
The kitchen overlooks the ocean too. Kitchenaid stand mixer, espresso maker and cups, plus all the expected equipment.

The adjacent dining area has a table that seats eight and comfortable armchairs.

The master bedroom has a king-size bed, bookcases, a fine Heriz rug, and four windows that look out to the sea in one direction and across the meadow and up to the ridge in another. There’s not another house in sight. Go to bed with the windows open and hear the roar of the surf as you fall asleep. The attached bath has two sinks and a big walk-in shower with skylight.

The rustic Adirondack bedroom has a bit of the feel of a cabin. Queen-size bed, overstuffed armchair and ottoman, a Scottish Arts and Crafts washstand, an antler lamp, Van Erp mica lamps, Indian baskets, and an old, worn kilim on the floor. Its bathroom has a tub and shower.

The garden bedroom is the smallest but many people’s favorite. It’s in a wing of its own with doors to one of the most colorful gardens at Sea Ranch. Queen-size bed, computer desk, swivel chair, and another kilim. The attached bath has a walk-in shower with a view of the ocean, seashells embedded in the counter, and a door to the deck and spa.

On the west-facing deck are the gas barbecue, outdoor dining table and chairs, and spa – all facing the ocean.

On the east side is the enclosed courtyard garden planted years ago by a talented and enthusiastic gardener. Roses, hydrangeas, azaleas, rhododendrons, fuchsia, alstroemeria, nasturtiums, bougainvillea, heathers – maybe as many as a hundred different flowering plants chosen so that the garden changes throughout the year. At Sea Ranch, where the predominant colors are gray, green, brown, and blue, the brilliant pinks, yellows, oranges, and reds in this garden are nothing short of astonishing.

One-car garage, although the door is narrow (90").

    a guest from Seattle, WA recommends this vacation rental

    My adult children and I had a great time at the 315 House! The openness and spaciouness of the house allows for privacy and parties, it gives everyone space and a feeling of openness. Its proximity to our relative's house, also on the golf course, made it possible to walk over to join them for breakfast. The bluff trail is a special trail to become familiar with.
    The only reason I qualified my rating of the property's general condition is that the fur rug in one room and antler lamp in another room felt problematic in respect to the animal world and maybe should be explained to renters.

    Jerry S from Walnut Creek, CA recommends this vacation rental

    We stayed here over a stormy weekend and really enjoyed the fireplace and open floorplan. We have been coming to Sea Ranch for 20 years, and this house is one of the better ones we've stayed in. Positives: clean, well-maintained, well-appointed and close to town. Negatives:Very slight negative for the lack of heat in one of the bedrooms. Great place for a family or 2 or 3 couples
