Recent San Francisco Bay Area vacation rental reviews

convenient location to coast and trails, comfortable house
Douglas B. | Feb 2024
This beautifully-aged classic house must be one of the originals. It has definitely stood the test of time, and has been well-maintained and restored over the years. The view out over the ocean from the open-beamed living room, while enjoying a glass of wine in front of a gently crackling fire, evokes the spirit of the best of Sea Ranch. The house comes very well stocked, especially the kitchen, where a good cook can feel right at home. Truly a delightful place to spend a few relaxing days.
Robert I. | Feb 2024
Nothing flashy, just what we needed, a little hippy-dippy cabin to get away amongst the Redwoods for a few days. Friends and kids and dogs - we all had fun and felt like we truly got away, even though home was less than an hour away. Can't wait to return this Summer!
