Beautiful ocean views , trails easily accessible. A quick 5 minute walk to the pool and tennis courts. Just the best location!
Brian R.May 2022
Great location and well equipped kitchen. We had a great stay and walked every day, both at the bluff and in the redwoods. Great to have the pool nearby and the sauna available as well. We will be coming back soon.
Gyorgy G.Apr 2022
For my husband and me, with our Great Dane, this was perfect, not too big, not too small, just right. And close enough to the ocean to enjoy its sights, sounds and smells with a delightful private beach (or what felt like a private one). We stayed home and cooked each dinner, content not to leave. This one goes on the “Just the 3 of us” list for places to which we will return!
Laura S.Mar 2022
Comfortable home with beautiful view & close to bluff trails
Renee S.Mar 2022
The view and location were perfect.
Katherine R.Aug 2021
The ocean view was fantastic and it was nice that we could walk to the beach and Ohlson Recreation Center.
Laura S.Jul 2021
The location of this house and the view from the deck was perfect! We could easily walk out the front door and take long walks along the coast. The house was a bit outdated and could use a really good deep cleaning to remove cobwebs and some dirty corners. It could also use some updating to things like the screen door. Overall, great stay and had the basics that we needed for a fun and relaxing trip.
We have sent your feedback to the local staff for further review. We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement and will work diligently with the homeowner to make any updates and repairs. We look forward to hosting you for your next vacation!
Craig L.Jun 2021
Panoramic views and close proximity to the coastal walking trails are two big pluses for this property. While the house needs a complete updating/remodel, and can only accommodate a couple with a kid or two, it's perfect for a couple that wants to vacation with their dog. We look forward to our next stay at Clemons' Cottage!
Robert B.May 2021
House was clean and well equipped. Nice porch view. Cozy accommodations for the two of us and our two standard poodles. Deer and turkey visitors were fun.
Linda R.May 2021
Definitely the highlight of this property is the location and view from the deck and front windows of the ocean and glimpses of waves crashing.
The house is pretty comfy, not "up to date" but with the view and deck, it was perfect for two of us. Kitchen was well supplied and there is a new electric stove. Be aware that the second bedroom (which is really tiny) holds 2 3-tier bunkbeds. So if you are 4 adults, you may have to draw straws on who gets the big Queen bed.
Jeanette U.Apr 2021
The house would be great for one couple with a couple kids, but no more than that. The house was in a quiet area and somewhat comfortable. There was 5 women staying there and two of us slept in the living room as the bunk beds were not too easy getting in & out of and the room is very small. The kitchen is well equipped. The deck & the yard are very nice & relaxing. The cleaning service does not do a very good job, and we ran out of t.p. With no washer & dryer, they should supply more towels and wash clothes. We had a very enjoyable time, and walked all around the area.
Jeanette, thank you for staying with us! We apologize for the issues you encountered during your stay but are glad you had an enjoyable trip! We do supply a starter supply of items such as toilet paper, paper towels, laundry soap, and dish soap to ensure the first night starts well. We encourage guests to bring their preferred items if they anticipate needing more.
We will follow up with our housekeeping team to ensure future cleans will be completed to our standard. We appreciate your feedback, and hope to host you again soon!

Great view, and cozy home for the price.
cindy h.Nov 2020
Wonderful views from the kitchen and living room areas. Easy access to hiking trails. We love the Sea Ranch and have rented a few different homes over the years. This home was a great escape.
Bunks are very tight as mentioned in previous reviews. Better for smaller kids.
Noah C.Nov 2020
Great place for small group. Close to trail and beach access.
Jennifer C.Aug 2020
Walkable you’re Stengel Beach
Darryl S.Feb 2020
Right off the highway, easy to find. Easy access to a great beach and the home itself has remarkable views. Had there been a whale I would have saw one, there wasn't as this trip was in February. If you book in April, you'll have a great spot to view whales from this house.
Richard N.Dec 2019
Lovely view. Close to the coast.
James A.Nov 2019
Loved the view and the wildlife! Had everything but laundry!
Matthew S.Aug 2019
The property is marketed towards families with children as it has two bunk beds. However, there is no washer/dryer access. To be fair, it is not a listed amenity, but it is unreasonable to not provide a washer/dryer for a week or longer rentals. The property needs to hire an exterminator. There are ants throughout the house (the dishwasher, cabinets, etc). The dishwasher has also reached the end of its useful life and should be replaced. Overall, the property has been neglected and is need of maintenance. The location is great, but until some of the rental proceeds are reinvested back into the cottage, we will not be returning here. There are lots of rental options available in Sea Ranch that are superior for a similar cost.
We do have regular pest control come to the home, and they have treated the house recently. The owner is researching replacing the kitchen appliances. We hope to see you again!
Amanda C.Aug 2019
We loved this place, and its Dog friendly! Make sure you walk the trail and find the stairs down to the beach 🙌🏼 So nice!! Had everything we needed for our stay. A short drive to Gualala with two grocery stores. When you go get your paperwork make sure to grab a bite to eat at The Shack.... yum 😋.
Paulette G.Aug 2019
The house was clean and cozy! We enjoyed the views from the living room and the nice walks along the paths to the water and the community pool. Very happy with our stay at the Clemon's Cottage! Thanks!
Patty D.Aug 2019
The cabin is just up the road from the trail.
Thank you for your feedback This home is on a monthly treatment program. We hope we can host you again soon!
Linda B.Jun 2019
Clemon’s Cottage was in a perfect location.. we could walk to the pool and tennis courts, also.. the bluff trails were convenient near the sea lions gathering places... our visit was too short .. we love being at The Sea Ranch!
jacqueline b.Apr 2019
Comfortable base for my family of 4 and my dog. Had everything we needed to relax between our outings exploring all the area has to offer.
Great house for a family. Amazing location to enjoy the Bluff trail and coves.
Mary Ellen B.Oct 2018
The view was the best we'very ever had in several ocean view rentals. The house was comfortable and clean. Well supplied kitchen. We really enjoyed the quiet and yet close to the beach.
Dennis R.Apr 2018
A beautiful peaceful place for a retreat.
Joelle N.Apr 2018
This is a great location and property for families with dogs. Great view.
Trudi .Oct 2017
The ocean views and proximity to the trails made our stay at Sea Ranch memorable. My family has been renting homes on the Sea Ranch property for 40 years and by far this house is our favorite. The architecture incorporates the best elements from multiple Sea Ranch home floor plans. The kids love the bunk room with the multiple, stacked bunks, I love the open kitchen so I can prepare meals without being isolated from friends and family, and the deck is a hit with all of us because it’s protected from the wind and is great from whale watching.
Monica G.Sep 2017
Our family loved the open floor plan and the wonderful views of the ocean. The family room was very comfortable, the kitchen was easy to use and the dining area was large enough to accommodate our family. We enjoyed our stay immensely and would rent Clemmons Cottage again.
