We stayed in a rental home, on Sea Ranch. The area is beautiful. It is also very quiet. We went into the local town of Gualala to get groceries. The town is small but had everything we needed to make wonderful meals each night. The towns folk are all hippies or real estate agents. The residents and visitors, at Sea... More

A bit of a drive from SFO, but worth the trip if you're looking to retreat from the world. This is a comfortable collection of properties ranging from simple to quite nice. Gualala has a couple of general stores, a few restaurants and not much more. But the whole place is overwhelmingly peaceful and relaxing. The seaside hiking trail is... More

On a beautiful day, hard to believe you would not give the sea ranch area 5/5. We live about 2 hours away and have stayed st the lodge and have rented several homes. We love walking on the beach, eating at the lodge, visiting gualala. Be sure to stop at the non denominationsl chapel...architectural gem inside and out!

The room was great, with spectacular views out over the water. With a location like this it should be so much better. Arrived before the 4.00pm check in (about 3.00pm) and asked if the room was ready. Met with blank stares from the 2 receptionists. One said she would check and made a phone call, she then said she would... More

Why people speak positively about Sea Ranch I will never know. Despite Mapquest saying it was a 2 hr.19 minute drive from the Oakland Airport, it took us 3 1/2 hours without delays. The coastline is no prettier than any random segment of Hwy.1. Once you finally get there, the resort is 10 miles from beginning to end. We all... More

The Lodge @ Sea Ranch is a very special place. Beautiful ocean views from almost everywhere on the property. Excellent food and service at a fair price and newly decorated rooms. Long walks along the cliffs over the ocean and up on the ridges or just sitting in your window seat enjoying a good case of "stuckeye". We've always enjoyed... More

The beaches and trails are great to visit. The areas is pristine and the housing is carefully blended with the landscape and unobtrusive. A great area to enjoy. The seal rookery and Walk-on beach are a couple of personal favorites.

We usually rent a house when we go to Sea Ranch (we have been going to Sea Ranch or staying in that general area for over 20 years), but this time we decided to stay at the Lodge. We were pleasantly surprised, The room had a great view, was clean and comfortable bed. Although the Lodge itself has had a... More

We have stayed at the Sea Ranch many times over the years. Homes are available very near the water, in the meadow, on the hillside and in the mountains. The homes are always supplied with all the necessities and are much more than comfortable. The attractions around the Sea Ranch are awesome. Nature excursions, restaurants, shopping and much more await... More
