Private vacation home
No parties or events
Located in: GUALALA, CA
Our house in Enchanted Meadows (that is the actual name of the area, you couldn’t make it up!) in Anchor Bay, California is the perfect place for a couple or a small group of family or friends to get away for a few days. It sits on top a hill along famous Highway 1 on the coast.
Because Enchanted Meadows is located in the so called banana belt, the weather is warm and sunny even if much of the coast is covered in fog. The main house has a living room and dining room with hardwood floors, a fully equipped kitchen, one bedroom, a large bathroom with floor heating and a huge deck around the house. Two additional cabins serve as two more bedrooms, one with a bathroom. Rent for the cabins is not included in the base rent which covers the main house only. If you only rent the main house, you will still have the property to yourself.
The house sits in a Redwood forest with a partial blue water ocean view. You can hear the waves and sea lions from the house. The setting is very private, calm and romantic. The deck and garden are perfect for hottubbing, relaxing, sunbathing, enjoying meals or watching the local wildlife. You will most likely meet the local bevy of quail, watch the hummingbirds dart around the garden, hear the ravens in the trees, see the chipmunks and squirrels and maybe get a glimpse of a deer.
One of the most wonderful features of the house is the light. In the morning, the whole house is flooded with warm morning light. Watching the full moon from the hot tub on the deck or through the windows inside the house travel across the night sky is spectacular. And without the moon, the sky is exploding with stars and planets, an amazing experience from the comfort of the hot tub. For city dwellers the lack of light pollution is awe-inspiring.
In the winter, the wood burning stove in the living room will keep you warm and cozy.
Though you feel like you are away from it all, you are very close to civilization. Anchor Bay is just 5 minutes down the hill and offers a supermarket and two restaurants. Gualala is about 10 minutes to the South and offers a variety of restaurants, two supermarkets, a post office, gas stations, gift shops and live music. Gualala is about 10 miles north of Sea Ranch in Sonoma County.
The spectacular Mendocino coast and its beautiful beaches are a great place to explore, hike, fish, dive and surf.
Our house is a short drive to the Point Arena Cove and the Point Arena Lighthouse which offers some of the best whale watching on the entire West coast.
Located in Gualala, this vacation home is in a rural area and on a river. Alinder Gallery of Photography and Studio 391 Fine Art Gallery are cultural highlights, and some of the area's activities can be experienced at Sea Ranch Golf Links and Arena Cove and Pier. Be sure to check out the area's animals with activities such as game walks and birdwatching.
