Our quiet townhome is warmly furnished in a seacoast theme with a fully equipped cooks kitchen and gas barbecue on the balcony deck with blue water views. Seawatch is also located within walking distance of 4-5 restaurants in the village.
There's a bottle of wine to welcome you. Enjoy views of the beach, river mouth and ocean from most windows, SeaWatch is a romantic spot for a couple or for a wonderful family vacation. Please see our many positive (email hidden). Nightly rate + county tax of 11%.
You are within walking distance of several art galleries and 5-6 restaurants. The wonderful Gualala Bluff Trail, 1/4 mile away, provides great views of sunsets, sea lions and whales, during their migration. Pick up a good book and read by the fireplace or soak in the relaxing jacuzzi tub. We welcome you with a bottle of wine.
SeaWatch, as one of our reviewers said, "at the cost of a hotel it provides spacious, well furnished room to spread out and relax in." The cozy fireplace is a great for reading a good book by or congenially socializing with friends.
Gualala is a wonderful location on the rugged California coast for active sports like kayaking, biking, hiking and beach walking, or leisurely art gallerying and fine restaurant dining. Day trips to Point Arena lighthouse, the village of Mendocino and the famed Anderson Valley wine region are within an hour's drive. The Sea Ranch Golf Links designed in the Scottish links style are just a mile away. SeaWatch is in the center of it all.
Guests may use the washer & dryer in bedroom hallway. There is also a free parking pass for the Gualala Point park which gives access to numerous hiking trails and the big beach seen from SeaWatch.

The SeaWatch is conveniently located in the town of Gualala within walking distances to local shops and restaurants, and grocery stores. The townhouse was clean, cozy, and well organized. We appreciated the labels to help locate items. We used the bbq to grill steaks, and found everything we needed in the kitchen. Great ocean view. A plus for us was that we could bring our two small well behaved dogs.
Great communication before the trip to make sure everything was clear. The house itself was clean and had everything we needed for a great Labor Day weekend away. We especially enjoyed sitting on the deck with our morning coffee and evening wine and relaxing by the fire. Our son liked the ping pong table and board games. It was easy to walk to cafes, restaurants, grocery stores, and the lovely Gualala Bluff trail. Our golden retriever seemed very comfortable in the house, and there was a good spot just up the hill to take him on walks. The area is just gorgeous. We loved Cook's Beach, a nice place for kids with a calm lagoon to play in. We also marveled in the ruggedness of the Stornetta Public Lands in Point Arena, just a 30-minute drive from the house. We would stay here again.
Gary and Judy have a lovely condo in downtown Gualala. It is very comfortably furnished and there is a beautiful view of the ocean. It is not secluded (you do hear cars with the window open between the ocean waves) but feels very private and calm. They have almost everything you need in terms of pots, pans, plates etc. It's easy to feel at home. If you are particular about knives you may want to bring your own.
It is a great spot to be as it is a short drive to activities (beach, kayaking, hiking) but you can also walk to the store or down to a little coastal trail. We had a great time!
We LOVED our stay! Gary was a very attentive communicator. He even called once we'd arrived, which helped us clarify a question about internet usage. (Using internet for email fine; streaming movies not so much) The accommodations were very clean, well appointed, stylish, and handled our every need. I loved our hillside view of the ocean, and the easy stroll to charming shops and yummy foods. Great location. Hard to leave. We will be back!
Lovely place, well decorated, comfortable furniture and great location for walking Gualala and hwy access to rest of the coast. Gary is an experienced rental host, everything was tip-top, and we enjoyed cooking in the well-equipped kitchen.
The house was stocked with an assortment of movies on DVD, jazz CDs, and games - we had a great time, and look forward to returning!
1 thing to know - Internet service is limited bandwidth - fine for email, but not streaming.
Gary and Judy's SeaWatch house was clean and comfortable, and in an excellent location near spectacular beaches and the wonderful Sea Ranch. We had a great time and found the house spacious, well appointed and cozy.
Gary was a responsive and communicative host, and any questions we had were quickly addressed by helpful notes around the house.
Gualala is a real gem of a beach town, friendly and uncrowded, and if you're interested in architecture Sea Ranch is a stimulating place with excellent public beaches to boot. Recommended.
The SeaWatch house was charming and cozy, exactly what we were looking for on our trip. Gary was very helpful leading up to our trip making sure we had all the information we needed. He was very responsive and easily reachable. The house had everything we needed for our stay (we prepared most of our meals at the house, so a well-outfitted kitchen with basics was appreciated). The surrounding area and neighbors were very quiet. We loved the town of Gualala as well and are looking forward to our next visit. Thank you Gary and Judy!
Judy and I are a semi-retired couple of educators who live in the S. F. Bay Area and love to get away to the serenity of the rugged Mendocino Coast at our SeaWatch. We also like sharing it with others. We both work part-time at Calif. State University, East Bay in the School of Education.
We also like to travel abroad to places like Greece, Ireland, Great Britain and other parts of Europe. We enjoy hearing from the guests of SeaWatch. They seem to enjoy the way we have furnished our place and the way it's so well supplied with entertainment media, board games, comfy places to relax and read, as well as numerous views and a cook's kitchen. Also, the attached garage is equipped with a ping pong table & safe dart board.
Our two boys are a highlight of our lives, also. In their early twenties they are both out on their own, but living close by in the Bay Area. I'm also an avid bicycler of the many bay area trails and routes.
We enjoy people and hope you enjoy SeaWatch.
