Tranquility House is perfect for a weekend getaway. It's nestled away in a quiet corner of sea ranch, but is very close to the ocean and to the nearby town. The house is clean and very nice and Al makes everything incredibly easy. We've already been there twice and definitely plan to go again!
We had a relaxing stay at Tranquility house! This was my second time staying here, and it was great to experience the house again. The hot tub was the main focus of the weekend. I appreciate the well stocked kitchen so you can create decent meals and we enjoyed playing board games by the fire.. We used the BBQ this time around and had some fantastic chicken. Overall great experience, thanks again Alfred!
A fantastic retreat into an almost magical setting. The location is stunning with the booming waves from the Pacific keeping you company while you drift to sleep among the pines. An amazing stay. The house itself is beautiful, well stocked, private and quiet. A perfect tranquil escape.
We found the Tranquility house as described by the owner. Al was diligent in getting us the keys and other house info, the instructions were clear, the hot tub was clean and easy to use, the kitchen well stocked, and the house certainly was quiet as it is situated far back from the highway and nestled against the woods. We also enjoyed many games of backgammon on a large, custom-made table. And Al's clear affection for well-mannered dogs made us feel comfortable bringing ours.
My only issue is that I searched airbnb for a house near Ft. Bragg and the Tranquility house was returned in their search. This house is south of Gualala and part of Sea Ranch which is lovely, but 55 miles south of Ft Bragg. On Highway 1, that is a beautiful, but, LONG trip. My mistake for not Googling the exact address.
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
This is a great spot for relaxing and hiking. We brought our dog and had a really nice time. Highly recommend it!
Tranquility house is exactly that - tranquil, relaxing and comfortable. Al communicates great and makes everything as simple as can be. We really enjoyed our stay.
Tranquility house was perfect. Just a short walk from the beach for gorgeous sunsets and a five minute drive from local shops. The house had everything we needed, and the hot tub followed by a fire in the living room truly captures 'tranquility'. Thanks al!
I celebrated my birthday over the weekend at Tranquility House, and it was lovely. While growing up I went to Sea Ranch a lot with my family and normally we stay on the meadow, so this was the first time I stayed up near the woods- I was very happy with it. This home backs up to a pretty view of the redwoods and it is private. I found it's not as cold and windy where the house is located and it's a pleasant walk to the beach. It's close to Gualala as well. We relaxed in the hot tub, sat by the fire in the evenings and took advantage of the kitchen's numerous cooking utensils and tools. Big plus- dog friendly.
Very lovely, very private. Kitchen had good tools,hot tub was super private. Many homes in Sea Ranch are wide-open, but not Tranquility House. this place is at the end of a cul-de-sac, surrounded by woods on 3 sides. You can hardly even see the house from the road.
Dinged 1star due to cleanliness - too much dust under the sofa and dirty dishes in the cabinets. When you're charging a cleaning fee, I expect the place to be immaculate. That said, Hot tub was very clean! Someone even came to check it while we were there.
Dinged another star for the beds -- both were hard as rocks. We ended up sleeping on the sheep skin rug (we brought) in the living room one night because the beds were so horrible. Maybe this is ok for some, but I want a nice cushy bed when I'm on vacation.
Many thanks for all the great info about Gualala and the cool coffee table book about Sea Ranch. We loved the fire place, grill was awesome, and overall we had a wonderful, relaxing New Year's stay.
