Rent a room in The Sea Sanctuary, a beautiful home which has everything you could desire in a place for a relaxing getaway - fireplace, hottub facing the ocean, 180 degree ocean views, great kitchen, piano, and miles upon miles of beaches to stroll just outside the home. A seal colony lives just 1/3 mile to the south and migrating whales can be seen from the home during the winter and early spring. The home normally rents out for $400-$450 / night for groups wishing exclusive access to the entire home.
This listing is for one of the two rooms downstairs available for rent, a formal bedroom which has a nice queen size bed and a view facing the ocean. The other room for rent, a lovely Japanese-style meditation room with sliding shoji screen doors and traditional tatami mats on the floor and a queen size futon can be seen in a 2nd listing here on airbnb. There is a full bathroom available for use downstairs which will be shared if the other room is occupied.
If you rent both available rooms, you would also have sole access to large open yoga/exercise area with 2 additional futons for sleeping and the full bathroom mentioned above. Groups larger than 4 pay an additional $15/night per person. If you are a group of 1 or 2 and would like sole use of the downstairs area, I would rent that to you for $30 less than the total rate for the two rooms
You are of course welcome to share the common living areas upstairs including kitchen, living room, hot tub, decks, etc.
As your host, I'll definitely respect your desire for privacy, or perhaps we can spend time conversing if that seems to be what the mood presents.
If you are into cooking, the kitchen is fully stocked including Vitamix, KitchenAId Mixer, oven, mircowave, etc.
Price includes an 11% local tax I pay to the county.
I do rent the entire house under a separate listing here if that is of interest to you.
Ted is a great, easygoing person (email hidden)e space is nothing short of spectacular. I would love to come back.
Ted was an excellent host and his home was exactly how it was described in the listing. We booked a last minute one-night stay, and it was one of the most relaxing trips I've taken in a while. The place itself is beautiful, spacious, and the private room we stayed in looks out directly into the ocean. I'll definitely be booking this again in the near future.
My wife and I had a lovely time staying at Ted's Sea Sanctuary. It's a beautiful home in a spectacular location. The bed was comfortable, the room was quiet, and Ted was an excellent host, volunteering the use of his binoculars on a hike to go see the local seal population.
If we ever find ourselves passing through Fort Bragg again, we'll be aiming for a return visit of a greater duration.
Was great to stay at Ted's again. It was as beautiful as I remembered. Hope to return again another time!
We had a great time staying with Ted. He (email hidden) and he really made us feel at home. His home was beautiful and his passion that went into building and designing it evident. We were sad it was such a short say, but we hope our paths meet again, perhaps in London some day!
Our stay here was exactly as awesome as advertised. The house is great. The location is great. Ted is great about talking about the area and your travels but still respecting your privacy when you want privacy. Just don't be shy if someone else is staying in the other room and you need to share the living spaces. Make friends!
Ted was very nice and the location was amazing. Would recommend over any hotel
Ted was a very nice and thoughtful Host. He (email hidden), it was really Fun to sit in the hottub and watch the Sunset. Highly recommended!
Ted was an amazingly gracious and thoughtful host who made our stay so relaxing. Pacific sunsets, pounding surf, and starry nights so clear we could see the Milky Way, all while melting in the jacuzzi hot tub. The house itself is cleverly designed, airy and spacious but full of cozy nooks to curl up and read or cuddle by the fire. We rode our bikes on the paved ocean trail, took long walks on the beach and ate our weight in mussels we found. Highly recommend !!
Wow what a beautiful, warm, and welcoming place! My friend and I only had a chance to stay for a night but we had a fantastic experience.
The hot tub was just the right temperature in the cool air and you could see the stars. The bed was really comfortable, and the cozy nooks around the house were perfect for relaxing.
If you're around in late March, early April, Ted tipped us off to some sea lion pups on the beach a 2-3 minute walk away in the morning. What a sight!
