Imagine stepping from the cool night air into the warm bubbles of your private hot tub. A glass of local wine or a mug of craft beer (you pick!) sits beside you ? a tasty memoir of your recent jaunt through Sonoma wine country. As you relax into the soothing water, you glance up at the inky sky, where an eruption of constellations twinkles back at you. It's paradise.
Welcome. Welcome to an oceanfront retreat perched atop a scenic bluff. Welcome to a place where whales breech in the bay, deer eat out of your hand, and seals sun themselves on rocks ? to a cozy retreat just a short drive from the gastronomic delights of Mendonoma (Sonoma/Mendocino) and the bustle of San Francisco. Welcome to your dog-friendly home-away-from home in lovely Sea Ranch, California. Welcome to Abalone Bay.
Abalone Bay is both elegant and inviting, seamlessly blending unparalleled ocean views and fine finishes with the comforts of home. Step into our home, and you'll feel instantly at peace as picture windows invite the outside in. Classic redwood beams meets vaulted ceilings, a gourmet kitchen beckons, Adirondack chairs await on the ocean view terrace, and a private courtyard offers direct access to picturesque bluff trails. Abalone Bay's recently updated décor with new furniture, fine linens, and fresh paint offers a sleek and stylish new look.
We're just minutes from restaurants, markets and other amenities, but Abalone Bay is a secluded, quiet world of its own. We're perfect for golfers, trekkers, and mountain bikers. And abalone divers, we're diver-friendly ? just a short walk to Sea Ranch's Smugglers Cove (easy staircase access), and not only do we have a wetsuit drying rack, but an abalone cleaning station too!
One of our favorite things about Abalone Bay is the quiet and seclusion that surround our home ? you can curl up with a good book or play a board game, with only the crashing waves as your soundtrack. With the scenic Pacific coastline it's the perfect place to relax, unwind and connect with your loved one. The master bedroom has direct access to the kitchen, perfect for early morning coffee. You'll also love relaxing in our hot tub, kicking back on our ocean view Adirondack chairs, watching the sunset, counting the constellations, and walking Sea Ranch's bluff trails.
Come, stay and make yourself at home. Abalone Bay would love to have you!
