We rented Walk on Beach for 10 days (9 nights) between Christmas and New Year, The house was wonderful. The Agency? The pits. Abrupt, impersonal staff during the rental process and in returning the key. Disinterested in our complaint that the phone did not work nor did the water dispenser on the refrigerator (a complaint noted three months earlier by... More

This is an unfortunate situation. After the guests left, the housekeeper had to do 10 hours of housekeeping to get the house ready for the next guest. The cleaning hardly ever exceeds 5 hours in the worst of times and we view this as excessive use of the home. We are committed to keeping the properties clean and the owners... More

Note: Please do NOT confuse the community "The Sea Ranch" with the "Sea Ranch Escape," which is a property management firm.I have rented a property in The Sea Ranch for three years in a row at the same time of the year. I absolutely love the property and location. This year, I used the Moonraker community pool which was wonderful--small,... More

I love Sea Ranch Escapes. My family has been going to Sea Ranch for 30 years. We have used a variety of agencies and this one is second to none. The houses are clean and the staff helpful. I have never found their service to be anything less than honest. They have a variety of homes to choose from so... More

We have escaped to Sea Ranch at least once a year for the past twenty - it is an amazing and beautiful place - and there are many options when it comes to renting a home, so shop around. Sea Ranch Escapes is a profit-driven company that offers many wonderful rental homes; you will find some real gems among their... More

I can't believe the bad reviews I read here - must be the competition of Sea Ranch Escape trying to steal away customers. DON'T BELIEVE IT! I have been going to Sea Ranch Escape homes for years and I have had nothing but kindness, respect and NO CLEANING FEES ever. I always opt to clean myself and I have two... More

We rented the Walk on Beach house which accommodated 3 couples very well. Everything including the hot tub was in good working order. Nice decks with a great ocean view. In fact, all 3 bedrooms and the living areas had great views of the ocean. This house is very well equipped except for a lack of spa towels and a... More

Hopeless. Incompetent and major attitude problem. Office for key pick up is far from the condo (just moved apparently). The staffer at the office gave us the wrong unit, which we only discovered after we'd driven back to the unit and unpacked, just ready to settle in to relax. We then received a rude phone call saying "you gotta come... More

This agency is dishonest. We cleaned the place thoroughly, yet they didn't refund our security deposit and gave no explanation. They ignored e-mails enquiring about my refund. Thank goodness for the internet. Now other people can find out in advance of making a reservation that these people are dishonest thieves and instead choose a different agency.

We rented a house from Sea Ranch Escape. This area was carefully developed to keep the views pristine. There is a beautiful chapel on site, as well as pools, tennis and basketball courts and many trails for walking. There are nearby redwood forests, and its not too far to several wineries. If you are looking for some peace and quiet... More

We have rented houses through Sea Ranch Escape for 10+ years now and have always been very happy with our experience. Reservations are easy to make and the employees are very friendly and helpful. We like to stay in the older places, nearer the lodge as the area feels a bit less populated. But the amazing thing about Sea Ranch... More
