Beautiful stay with amazing view
The Seale at Sea Ranch was a beautiful home with the most wonderful view over the sea through the big windows or from the hot tub on the terrace.
The management company were all helpful all the time.
We strongly recomend this stay!

Seale House April 2013
We loved this house and location - it was so serene and much more private than previous houses. We'll definitely be coming back. One suggestion - if there was a way to make the hot tub a little more private that would be nice - but not necessary! Thanks for the wonderful accomodations.
Sonoma, CA, United States
Love this house!!
This was our second stay at the Seale house and we hope to visit this house again in the future. The view is fantastic and the house is just right for our family of 3 and our dog.

Seale House Revisited
Love the Seale House and The Sea Ranch. Location is perfect- house nicely and thoughtfully remodeled. The perfect place to be. Have stayed here three or four times over the past 15 years. Couple notes: Since the fireplace is the MAIN HEAT for the great room, would be nice to have kindling provided- it was a bit tricky to get and keep going and it warranted a second trip to the store to get kindling and newspaper. Since linens are required provided, I would point out that going with white towels (vs the pretty colored ones) says to me that they were professionally laundered (as one also hopes were the sheets)- not just tossed in a home washer/dryer- need to have the high temp washes for professional results. Right front stove burner dead; some of the buttons on the dishwasher also inoperative, though it worked fine, could not select some aspects of the cycles. TV and wi-fi great! Ditto new and very efficient hot tub. Please post house address and telephone number by the phone along with TSRA emergency numbers- we had a late evening stranded visitor and had to scramble in binders and packets to figure out where we were and how best to help him. Wish wish wish there was on-site recycling; seems that recycling and TSRA vibe should go hand in hand. Sea Ranch is one of our favorite places in the world and the Seale House helps to make it so.

Seale House Review
Small Kitchen was the biggest issue. No place to store groceries????
This home allows pets, but the patio is not closed in. This would keep us from not going back to this house.

Thanks for a wonderful weekend. This house had a phenomenal location in Sea Ranch. Very well appointed. Clean. Kitchen and the grill were used many times. Highly recommend.
San Francisco, CA, United States
Another fun year at Sea Ranch!
The views were lovely and the home is cozy. The kitchen area offers no space to store canned goods, cereal, bread, etc. so a bit of rearranging must be done. The kitchen provides only salt and pepper for spices so come well equipped with your seasonings, oil, etc.
Pleasant Hill, CA, United States
We have been coming up to Sea Ranch for about 20 years, and truly every home is unique. The location of Seale was amazing. The decor was very nice. First home we have stayed in though that only had salt and pepper and coffee filters. When you stay here make sure you bring all your food with you! Cupboards are bare
The people at Beach Rentals were wonderful. They made us feel very welcome, and even supplied towels, sheets and treats for our dogs. Will definitly use this renal agency again!!!
Napa, Ca, United States
Wonderful as ever...
We always enjoy and appreciate Seale House! Every time we visit, we discover something new, perhaps a beach we've never hiked to, or spotting baby foxes for the first time. Our favorite spot on earth, and Beach Rentals makes it all a breeze for us. Thanks so much!

Great Stay in Sea Ranch
We had a wonderful stay at the Seale house in Sea Ranch! It was very relaxing and the house was just the right size for 4 adults. The house is laid out very well with beautiful ocean and wildlife views from all rooms. We saw lots of deer. We plan to stay there again soon!
Redwood City, CA, United States
Our first time at the Seale House
We very much enjoyed our Sea Ranch vacation at the Seale House. We've been visiting The Sea Ranch for 25 years and the Seale House is probably the best location ever! The house is very comfortable, the veiw is spectacular, and the hot tub a pleasure after long hikes along the bluffs. We saw many deer in the medow, had a fox visit the yard daily, and watched the pelicans over the bluffs from the deck. It was a great time

A great house for one or four. Get ready to relax.

Perfect Sea Ranch Getaway
Seale House exceeded our expectations and was the perfect getaway for our family of four. The home is surrounded by plenty of open space with ocean views from every room and easy access to hiking trails along the cliffs where wildlife abounds. We enjoyed our stay and look forward to having the opportunity to return.

Loved it even during a stormy week!
The house was very comfortable and cozy. The fireplace was teriffic and kept us very warm! The location is fabulous.
Palo Alto, CA, United States
We had the best time!
This Sea Ranch house is superb! Clean and uncluttered. Wonderful site with no houses in front of you. Miles of bluff hiking trails, every mile bursting with natural beauty. Watch the migrating whales and numerous bird species from your solar heated hot tub! Lating memories made.We will be back and our stay will be much longer next time. Thank you, Kathy (property manager) for being so warm and welcoming.
Napa, California, United States
Seale House, wonderful as ever!
Our stay was heavenly, Sea Ranch just can't be beat! Perfect sized house for 2 adults and a small doggie, location a dream. We appreciate the linens and internet connection, 23 years ago this would have been unheard of! We see something new every time we visit. The whales (SPOUT!)were amazing this year, and we enjoyed watching the foxes,deer and seals. We basically eat, snooze, walk, go the store, eat some more, and then do the same thing the next day.
The staff at Beach Rentals are welcoming and friendly, they always do a great job of taking care of us! Can't wait to visit again, thanks so much!
Discovery Bay, CA, United States
where do I put this?
the property management, were great! But we found this house to be too cramped for more than two! When we first walked in, we were surprised to see the living space was much smaller than it appeared in the pictures. But when we started to unpack our groceries in the kitchen, we realized there was no cabinet space ? This became a problem , as we like to prepare our own meals. Our dry goods just became a source of constant clutter. A big plus were the very comfortable beds, but the living room funiture was not so cozy,(too stiff)for more than two.

Sealehouse is everything we could ask for. It's solar energy and smaller footprint speaks to our values. The unobstructed magnificent view speaks to our soul. The updated clean lined and open floor plan speaks to its liveability.
We have already rebooked.

Despite being there in the rainy season, the weather smiled on us. Fantastic to watch the waves crash, the cranes feed in the front yard, the hawks wheel overhead.

We enjoy this home year after year!
Again, we enjoyed our annual Thanksgiving stay at the Seale House. Lovely. Thank you so much.
Seale house feedback
Almost everything is perfect at Seale house, and it's unusually clean, fresh and modern. It is sited spectacularly with nothing but sea and wildlife in your lines of sight. The only drawback was that the beds are soft -- too soft for me which made it difficult to sleep well. I think they are in good condition, but the mattresses are just a soft version. Otherwise my stay was divine and the management company was incredibly nice and helpful.
Aside from above, the view was terrific.
Very satisfying. The weather was great and the view spectacular. Would loved to have stayed longer.
another great stay!
A nice house with everything you need(except for a toaster that burned your toast every time)to have a relaxing time.

Beautiful Small Ocean Front Bluff House at Sea Ranch
This house was perfect for my dog and me. Loved the hardwood floors, the clean and attractive decor, comfortable furnishings, and nicely-equipped galley-type kitchen. I will definitely rent this house again! The house is quite private -- "commons" land (ocean meadow) on two sides. There is direct access to the Bluff Trail, but the trail is far enough from the house so that you don't have people walking right in front of your windows.
A special place
I've been visiting Seale House for 15 years. Its a special place, cozy and quiet with recently updated interiors and features. You can't beat the view or location.

August 2011 Getaway
This was a beautiful, cozy home. The only thing we were disappointed in was that there were absolutely no spices in the kitchen. Other homes we've rented had a basic supply.
Palm Springs, ca
Happiness is 10 days at The Sea Ranch
The Seale House was a good choice for us; it was dog friendly and I feel very grateful to the owners for taking animals into their home; the configuration of the house worked extremely well. The location was lovely; we were at the ocean and set back about 200 feet so that the bluff trail wasn't right in front of us. The furnishings were simple and comfortable. We loved being 1 1/2 miles from Gualala. So convenient. The home could have used a)a close look by the management staff to assess which appliances worked and which didn't, and b)a more thorough cleaning. We understand that this is a popular rental and that the time allotted for cleaning can get tight...but coming into a truly spotless home is so critical. That said, we had a wonderful stay there.
Only comment was that...
Only comment was that the amenities listed stated DVD player and CD player and there was no DVD player and the CD player was a clock radio which I dont't consider a stereo. Might want to update that.
San Francisco, CA
Seale House was GREAT
We loved everything about staying at this place! Great views and paths right out our door. very comfortable furnishings and we could bring our small pets. We love to cook so for us the kitchen was on the small side but equipped well for us to make some nice meals while there. I would definitely stay there again.
This is a beautifully remodeled place in pristine condition, located in a near-perfect spot. However, people with dog allergies beware, per the advisory.
debra w.'s review of Seale
I would recommend the place with the following caveats:
The indoor common space is small for two couples and not overly comfortable for hanging out. It was unusual not to have any condiments ( salt, pepper, oil ) available in the home. I would recommend having those somewhere in the kitchen since people do not generally bring those things up with them , or people should be informed the home owners do not supply any condiments at all.
Nice location, very clean and the office staff at Beach Rentals were really helpful, responsive and efficient in helping us with any concerns we had.
Los Altos, CA
Another great getaway at Sea Ranch!
The new floors and counter tops are great! Love this place! We watched whales from the couch, saw cute little foxes just off the deck at dusk and star gazed from the hot tub after dinner. Thank You Seale Owners and Beach Rentals! Everything was super, as usual!
A perfect getaway for 2 people and a yellow Lab
We hope to come back next year to Seale House. Our only complaint is the fireplace; it needs a grate to work better and people need to bring very small kindling to get it going. Directions for the lever/knobs would also be helpful. We weren't sure if the flue was open or not and had to guess where the bottom lever was supposed to be. We finally bought little fire starter sticks in Gualala and had great comfortable fires after. We really loved staying here and enjoyed the gorgeous weather! Spotted 2 egrets, 2 deer and a brown fox right in the back yard.

Christmas at Seal House
Seale house is lovely and has all of the basics necessary for a comfortable stay.
Great little spot!
We have rented this house annually for close to 10 years. It is cozy and cute with all the amenities you could want. The best part is the hot tub and the deck -- somehow the deck has been constructed in such a way that you are really protected from any wind. And, in the hot tub, you have completely unobstructed views of the coast line ... also, it is a fabulous place from which to star gaze at night. Please note that there are only baseboard heaters, not central heat, so you need to watch small children around them as they can get hot.
Arlene S.'s review of Seale
These suggestions are not intended as criticisms and are offered only as suggestions:
1. Living room lighting is quite dim for reading in evening hours. Consider a pole lamp with dimmer as solution.
2. Large beach towels or robes for post hot tub use would be a nice touch.
3. Provide a better map of Sea Ranch for cyclists. Difficult to navigate the property.
4. Interior could use a fresh coat of paint in the near future.
5. Bedroom door requires replacement due to extensive damage.
nice views, sound of surf, but remember to bring needed items!
Lovely location and views. The policy of providing no sheets and no spices, etc. in the kitchen is a bit odd. Also, the high cost for cleaning -- when one still needs to take the garbage out, wipe down all counters, do their own laundry, and run the dishwashers -- seems extreme.
Overall: a lovely place but they need to re-think the way they price it/service it for us to think about coming back.
Our return longer stay at Seale house!
We spent a short time at Seale house October 2009 & loved it; we were allowed to bring our Ginger, a 4 year old, 25# terrier mix, she apparently loved it also as she got to spend lots of time looking out the window at the deer and other native creatures going by. We knew we had to return for a longer visit so this October we packed up the SUV & Ginger headed for the coast and stayed for 10 days. We found out that there was a well kept dog park just a short drive from Seale house, what a treat for Ginger & how grand to meet many residents of the area. We really love that all the windows in the house face the ocean, we can see some waves crashing against the coastline, can hear the ocean at night & also there is a short walk to the path along the coast line, although it wasn’t well trimmed this year. If one absolutely needs to check their e-mail they have wi-fi in the house, a nice TV & DVD, plus a nice sound system to just listen to your favorite music while sipping a glass of wine on the deck staring out at the ocean. Nice size bedrooms & bathrooms and a well stocked kitchen for cooking- utensils, pots & pans, serving dishes plus the important wine glasses! Looking forward to our next stay! Linda, Carol & Ginger
saint helena, california
Just a note that the tv only displays in 4:3 format and not wide angle. It should be able to display that way but I could not make it work as it should. Not a big deal, but thought you should know. It makes it difficult to watch sporting events since everything is broadcast in wide format these days.
Santa Rosa, CA
A very nice place to stay in Sea Ranch
Had a wonderful time at the Seale house. The location was perfect and the view was spectacular. The hot tub was very clean and worked perfectly. The Internet WiFi was kind of slow at times, and I needed to reboot the router once but otherwise was usable. The only downside were the counters in the kitchen and bathroom which are in need of being replaced - the tiles are quite scratched and warn and the dark grout isn't appealing. But overall, a great place to stay for a couple or a family of 4. Read more
Response from Beach Rentals - 02/19/2011
The house has been remodeled this year including new floor, new paint, new counter tops and hearth, and new faucets.
Best view around!
The hot tub was cold due to a burned out pump. Was repaired in 24 hours. I'd like to own this house.
The only thing missing...
The only thing missing were garbage bags and napkins.

Response from Beach Rentals - 02/19/2011
The carpeting has been removed and beautiful new wood flooring has been installed. Also new counter tops and hearth and new paint.
San Francisco, CA
Enjoyed relaxing and watching the world go by. The barbeque was great, we grilled everynight. We really liked the furnishings...simple and comfortable.
Lovely home and would definitely stay there again!
Only negative was that while the home was in fact ocean front, the walk to the ocean requires heading east to the trail, around several 'blocks' in order to actually reach the ocean trail. All else was perfection! We liked being close to Gualala for a change as well. Within a very quick drive or nice walk to Del Mar Rec Center as well.
Tom C.'s review of Seale
very nice stay. can't wait to go back. house was what we expected. house set up nice, 2 bedroom, 2 bath, felt very comfortable for four people. living,
dining, and kitchen area all open and lots of windows toward ocean.
1. This house wasn't as fully stocked as previous ones. There was no broom in the house to sweep floors.
2. Directions on how to use the fireplace would be helpful.
3. Map under Virtual Tour was inaccurate!
nancy v.'s review of Seale
nice location, OK house, could use nicer appliances, lighting, carpeting.
Seale is a steal!
Great house. Stunning views. Hot tub has a view and is private. Bedroom setup perfect for two couples. But you would probably hate it and shouldn't stay there. (More for me!)
Our Happy Birthday stay at Seale House
This truly was one of our most favorite times at The Sea Ranch. We have been going there for the past several years & have stayed probably in about 4 different places with repeats in only one other house but we know this will be the place for our continued visits!!! Linda & Carol
Affordable oceanview two-bedroom
This home is comfy, attractive, and perfectly located, with an ocean view at Sea Ranch near miles of blufftop walking paths and a mile or so from a huge, clean community pool. It also has a hot tub and deluxe gas grill. It's priced very reasonably for a coastal getaway if you're staying a week. If you visit this area, plan to do some cooking--there aren't a lot of restaurants nearby. But there's an adequate supermarket that often has fresh fish and has a good meat selection, so you can do some barbecuing. Be sure to try the pies at Trinks coffee shop--they're homemade and very good.
Mountain view, CA
This house was perfect for two, very private especially the deck and hot tub. House was on the end so really very private with beautiful ocean views Would go with this house again but what we like is to be surprised this is the second home we have rented and both have been fabulous!!!
Loved this clean, peaceful,...
Loved this clean, peaceful, close to the ocean, location. Property well maintained.
wonderful stay at the seale house
i rented the seale house for my parents, who drove from illinois to visit. the house and location were perfect and they had a view of the blue water ( they preferred this to a whitewater) and an unobstructed view of the meadow. the meadow featured (day and night ), an array of wildlife and the brown pelicans rose straight over the edge of the beach from the house. there were lovely trails and one led directly into the gualala state park.
the interior of the house was recently remodeled and the television had cable cabilities. highly recommend.
We love to stay at Seale
It smelled of dog when we arrived, and there was dog hair in a few locations. Other than that we have stayed here twice and we will definitely stay here again. It is a very nice house in a great location.

Fabulous little beach house!
Seale is a beautiful home and has an incredible view. Perfect for a relaxing and quiet getaway. My husband and I return a couple of times every year and call it "Our Beach House".
Seale Home Visit for the Second Time
The Seale home is conviently located and was in good shape for my stay. I had stayed in this same home some 14 years ago and found that it has aged pretty well. Overall I had an enjoyable visit.
Our only suggestion would...
Our only suggestion would be to buy a new can opener. We tried to buy one but couldn't find one. It's very hard to work!
The beds were uncomfortable. Instead of a top mattress, a thick foam pad was used, which was uncomfortable and made it hard to make the beds. Only one person could really become comfortable one the couch; others were stuck in chairs that didn't encourage lounging.
Peter M.'s review of Seale
Overall a vg experience. FOr this particular property a single sheet in their binder with all of the info for TV and INternet might be helpful. We did see their nice plastic thingy with the TV info but missed the same kind of thing with info on INternet. Or maybe have those on the counter with the book when folks first get there?
One other small thing was the lack of tea towels. They were not mentioned in the info and not having them is a huge waste of paper toweling. if not supplied, list in the istructions. All i noticed where towels and sheets.
Overall a wonderful get-away for us!
A Relaxing and Enjoyable Stay
This was a great place to stay with a wonderful view of the ocean. The only downfall is there is not any cubbard space to store the groceries you might bring. All of our food stayed out on the counter.
San Carlos, CA
Nice house. Furnishings were up to date..."Crate & Barrel" deco
The only negatives were; NO cabinet space for the dry good groceries and the house was probably the least well equipped of any house we've ever stayed at (been renting @ Sea Ranch since 1982). So...bring everything w/you, even a blender! However, I would rent this house again because of the location.
