vacation rental description

Abinitio Tranquillo which means, Peace From The Beginning, is exactly what we have set out to create for ourselves and our guests. From our winding road that takes you past gigantic ferns, magnificent Redwoods and abundant wildlife; tranquility is just a step outside your car door. 

This beautiful hilltop home offers the best of both worlds. Ocean views and distant ocean lullabies without the roar of the ocean keeping you awake at night and, yet, we are just down the hill from the beach. Watch the deer nibble nearby and wild turkeys gobble and strut as ocean vistas wash away your worries as you relax on the huge back deck. The front courtyard offers a quiet peaceful place for coffee as you listen to the fountain bubble amoungst the gorgeous flowers.

This newly furnished two bedroom home with it's giant loft sleeps seven. Enjoy the airiness of the master bedroom with its new king-size mattress and four-poster bed. A large window seat makes you feel as if you are high in the trees staring out at the ocean that lays before you. The master bath features a large walk-in closet with a shower for two and radiant heat flooring. 

The loft offers a large comfy brand new Indonesian day-bed with twin mattress that coddles the body while the library stimulates the mind.

The ground-floor bedroom has queen size mattress with subtle soothing colors and beach-theme decor. A sliding door to the outside deck means you can watch the sunset in privacy if you wish. Across the hall is the bathroom with radiant heat flooring that keep your tootsies warm and a large jacuzzi tub which might just warm your heart and that of your loved one during a romantic evening.

The living room features all new furniture including a queen size sofa sleeper, window seat, television/dvd combo and stereo with a record player. Because we have created Abinitio Tranquillo with the intention of promoting peace and re-discovering ourselves and our children we have intentionally chosen not to have internet nor cable TV. Instead we have a library of over 70 DVD's to cuddle up with one another when we have some down time and a closet full of games. Believe me, every family should try doing without all the gagets if they want to discover one another all over again.

The cheery and bright kitchen features a convection oven, microwave, dishwasher, and cappucino making machine with brand new dishes and pots and pans. A refridgerator with ice maker and a bar sink complete the picture.

With easy access to Gualala and with its trendy shops, artist galleries and groceries (approx 10 minutes), Annapolis Winery and Alexander's Restaurant you have everything you need at your fingertips. And with our neighbor's house available for rent next door you can easily hold that family reunion that you have always been dreaming about. 

It is with extreme sorrow that we have to say that we no longer allow pets due to abuse of our home due to animals.

traveler reviews for this sea ranch house rental

Peace and Beauty

Review submitted: July 6, 2013   Date of arrival: June 26, 2013

This property is located in the coastal redwood forest in a most peaceful and beautiful setting. The view of the ocean (though distant) is particularly awesome from the master bedroom. Deer and turkey roam freely in the area. We liked the fact that the two bedrooms are on opposite sides of the house. The house was exceptionally clean with lots of living space and a large, well-equipped kitchen. The washer and dryer came in handy as well. We were traveling with a group of 4 couples and also rented the house next door which is only steps away and very convenient if extra space is needed. Cheryl (the owner) was very helpful and provided a wealth of information to ensure that we knew everything about the house and the area. We recommend this property highly.

Recommended for: age 55+, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: We love a clean house and really try to keep it in top-notch shape. Thanks for noticing!

From e very beginning you knew this had to be a special sanctuary! The owner is terrific,and everything is true! We had never been to Sea Ranch and I found Abinitio Tranqiuillo line and it did not disappoint! It is tranquil, comfortable and in a beautiful setting! Woods with a view of the ocean.

All the amenities of home! We LOVED it and will be back!!!!!!

If you want solitude, you should stay here.

Review submitted: April 7, 2013   Date of arrival: April 1, 2013

Everything the owner says about her house holds true. The house is situated in the forest with a distant view of the ocean. I really liked the layout of the house. Her kitchen is stocked with all of the cooking spices that you will need. We cooked all of our meals so we didn't try any of the local cuisine. The two supermarkets in Gualala have everything you will need for supplies, pretty decent prices too. It is about a ten minute drive into Gualala.
Be prepared to do some walking to access some of the beaches. I had a challenging time trying to figure out where some of the beach accesses were. You can spend hours investigating the tide pools in the area. We saw starfish, sea anemones, mussels and more.
The pool areas and tennis courts are top notch. Ask the owner to provide you with directions to them because there are no road signs for them.
If you like hiking, then this is the place for you. You can hike for days on all of the coastal and forest trails in the area.
Regarding dogs: They are allowed. However, the only fenced in place is the garden/entryway. It is the first pic you see on the website.

Recommended for: pet-friendly, sight seeing, romantic getaway
