    Couple suggestions: we didn't know how to turn off the cei8ling fan; the light to the deck was out; and it is unclear which way to turn the faucet to get hot or cold water! With notes to converse water, this is especially important. It would be good to have a small sign. Thanks.

    Nadia S from San Rafael, CA recommends this vacation rental

    Baleen is a super well located home, near all of our favorite beaches, beautiful views of the ocean and wild life right at your door step. The little sanctuary garden with hot tub is home to at least one huming bird who tolerated our back and forths and always settled on the same branch. We rented the home for 8 people but we suggest it more comfortably for 6.
    Hot tub was super hot, sometimes hot tubs are not hot enough but this one was at 104 and we could not make it go down, that said the weather was amazing and we were in the 80 degree range for three days so who needs a hot tub... ;)
    We had a wonderful time!

    We were two families with 4 little kids total and had a wonderful time at Baleen. The bedrooms are spacious, kitchen lovely to cook in, living spaces nicely furnished and clean and the outside spaces perfect for relaxing. I would say all the stairs were a bit of a challenge with the babies but we figured it out and would do it all over again. We saw deer daily out in the grass and even had a little frog friend visit the hot tub area. Thank you for the lovely vacation home Baleen!

    a guest from Wilsonville, OR does not recommend this vacation rental.

    The Baleen house was very large, clean, and has a nice modern updated kitchen with beautiful tile. Some of the mattresses do need to be updated, and the BBQ needs some repair. Although you can see the ocean, the house does not have a direct view of the ocean, and the hot tub is in the garden area, so you can't see the ocean from the hot tub. The walk to the ocean from the house was about 10-15 minutes or so.

    Melissa K from Davis, CA recommends this vacation rental

    Baleen is a very nice Sea Ranch home with mostly a meadow view and peekaboo ocean view. It has a beautiful fenced yard that is doggie escape-proof and has a large spa. The grassy open yard on the opposite side of the house is great for kids to play ball. This home has no garage, but offers plenty of parking (we had 4 vehicles and probably could have fit one more).  We were disappointed that the gas fireplace was not working (we only got it to light up once for a few seconds). This home has 3 levels with the family and dining room at the top, the kitchen, entryway, one bedroom and hallway bath on the middle level, and a small bedroom and master bed/bath on the lower level. Overall a nice vacation homes for families with kids and dogs. Beach Vacation Rentals is our favorite place to rent from too.

    We've been going to Sea Ranch for nearly 30 years now and have always worked with Beach Rentals. They are very helpful and very professional.
    Baleen house is comfortable, cozy and close to the beach, a real plus as we'd rather walk than drive! This is just a lovely, serene place to relax and unwind. We'll be back many times in the coming years.

    This house is a short walk to Shell Beach and convenient to other coastal vistas/beaches in Sea Ranch and also close to Gualala. Kitchen is nicely equipped and overall home is in good condition. Wasn't a big fan of all the different levels that require lots of stairs up/down and wish the small deck had an umbrella or awning for times when you want to be outside but not in direct sun.

    a guest from Upland, CA recommends this vacation rental

    This was one of four homes rented during a weekend family gathering in The Sea Ranch. Baleen is immaculate and well-equipped. The photos do not do this home justice. There are three levels to this home separated by small sets of stairs. The front entrance requires use of several steps as well. Keep this in mind if you have someone with limited disability. Unfortunately one of my guests did but it was not too much of an inconvenience having to use the stairs. It may be for someone else. Overall, a great home. Thank you, Beach Rentals!

Tri level home with two sets of stairs-four steps each. Kitchen at one lower level than living/dining area. Area available to pass plates, food to higher level. Helps to have two people serving and clearing table. Beautiful front garden with large hot tub. Nice deck at back of kitchen for ocean viewing. Good views of ocean, meadow and hillside. A good place to stay, would consider a return to this house.

    a guest from Foster City, CA recommends this vacation rental

    Our stay at Baleen was absolutely wonderful. The unit is a 3-bedroom, clean, nicely decorated, and well-maintained house that served us perfectly for a "get-away from it all" vacation. The deck outback has a lovely view of the ocean, and since the unit is really only closely situated next to one other house, it gives you the sense that you are quite alone. It really provides what I think the original designers of The Sea Ranch had in mind.

    The kitchen provided all of the necessary utensils for my wife who enjoys cooking -- even while on vacation. The beds were very comfortable, and the unit was well-stocked with firewood for the foggy days.

    I think we caught the owners in the middle of a flooring change as a portion had relatively new wood or wood-like flooring, but the carpeted portion definitely looked like it was due for an update.

    We did report a broken door lock during our stay, but that was fixed almost immediately after we reported it.

    Overall, I think Beach Rentals can count on seeing us again, and quite possibly in the Baleen unit.
