★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Fantastic location ......hiking trail access right outside the door, with one of the few walk on beaches directly below the unobstructed sight line from the house to the water. Very convenient indeed. This house is comfortable for two people with all the amenities one needs. We appreciated having a stack of firewood on hand and true to California living, a hot tub on the side deck. Great stay, great place for peace and quiet. Loved it!

“We absolutely enjoyed our stay at Casa Pacis! We arrived in the dark during what we thought to be a wild and windy night until we awoke to the stunning sight of pounding surf outside our window and saw how close in proximity we were to the ocean! The location is outstanding.......The beach in all its wild glory, the accessible hiking trails along the coast and your very comfortable house made our first time at Sea Ranch a memorable experience indeed. We appreciated the house slippers and the firewood for cozy evenings. ... All of your instructions and recommendations were spot on, so thank you for those details. We were happy campers and look forward to another visit. Many thanks!”

Casa Pacis is in an awesome location with all the needed amenities for a weekend getaway. Best things- the location to the beach and trail, the hot tub, the coziness, the views, the comfortable bed, and the sound of the ocean that put us to sleep.

Entry Title: ... a great house to get away from it all ...
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
My partner and I just spent a relaxing long weekend at Casa Pacis. Everything was just as pictured and described, but one cant explain how beautiful the view is. Every day was climaxed by a dramatic florescent orange sunset (due to record breaking temps and thus haze in NorCal). The proximity to the ocean can't be beat for the view and privacy.  Its the last house on it's side of the road, at the end of a cul-de-sac, facing the ocean. Its a short walk to a sandy beach, and at night the waves are a soothing sound in the distance. I've stayed in Sea Ranch around 30-40 times, and this is one of the closest to the ocean in this price range. Klaus was very informative and accommodating to meet our needs. A great house to get away from it all.

Entry Title:   ... experience what makes California special ...
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
When you have a "special guest" coming in from the East Coast and you want to introduce them to what makes Northern California so special - you want to land in exactly the right spot. Casa Pacis was perfect for us: clean, comfortable, nicely furnished, unfussy, and in view of the ocean. Klaus' instructions were detailed and exact and everything functioned as it should. The nearby Sea Ranch Lodge was a great place for a meal or a drink, and the community swimming pool is a delight - big, beautiful, uncrowded, and a water temperature of 81 degrees ensures it is swimmable regardless of the weather. Klaus told us that once we visited, we would want to come back, and that is absolutely true. In a heartbeat.
“Everything about it was lovely. It was a very easy place to settle into. We used it as a home base for four days and traveled up the coast to explore, as far as Mendocino. The community swimming pool was, for me, an unexpected delight, at 81 degrees! And it was nice to have the wonderful Sea Ranch lodge such a short drive away. Thanks for your excellent hosting. Hoping to do it again soon!”

Great location, only a few minutes walk to hit the private beaches. We were able to sit on the back deck in the mornings and at night and enjoy our coffee and drinks and take in the sight and sounds of the ocean and waves crashing. We enjoyed the same sights and sounds from the hot tub at night as well. The kitchen included all the items we needed to cook a few different meals during our stay. .....
We would definitely stay here again. Klaus was great to work with and was easy to get a hold of and communicate with both before and during our stay.

Mama deer and her doe were right at the windows as were bounding jack rabbits and countless species of birds and flowers. We even saw a pod of whales at Gualala Point - the blow holes were spouting just like fire works. Magic! Everything was comfortable at Casa Pacis and we'd happily return. ”

We were able to get down to the beach a few times and play in the driftwood and took some nice hot tubs in the rain. We made a little Christmas display using driftwood and shells and stringing it with lights. The drift wood stack you have on the mantel was a perfect frame for a "tree"!  See attached photo."

The bed was particularly comfortable, and since the house is so private, we were able to sleep with the bedroom window open (screen closed) and enjoyed the sounds of the big surf all night.  And we paralleled 3 pods of spouting and breaching mother and pup whales up the coast for a few hours on our northern walk, ....

"A remote beautiful location. The drive up from SFO was pretty wild (lots of twists and turns and fog), but worth the trip. I thought the central coast of CA was beautiful, this area is rugged and...well...wild. Every night we sat out on the back deck at dusk and listen to the ocean and watch the deer wander around in the meadow...and the stars. Amazing. The property itself is well kept up, tidy, with all the amenities you need. We hung out at the house and also explored the area. Took a trip over the mountain to Philo, explored Gualala, and took a morning to check out the light house at Point Arena. When we were there it was pretty foggy, except for our last day. Nonetheless, it was a relaxing trip for my wife and I and our two toddlers."

They blend perfectly into the environment, so you have a feeling of great privacy; in July, there were wildflowers everywhere, seals sunning themselves on the rocks, and 2 baby deer in the backyard (no joke!) The house has every possible amenity and is totally comfortable. The environment is gorgeous."

Review Title: "Serenely Private and Romantic Retreat"
"Serene Casa Pacis sits by itself near the end of a cul-de-sac above Walk On Beach. The only sounds you might hear are the ocean and the warbling of the birds. This was our second visit to Casa, and reinforced our experience of last year that this is truly the "House of Peace". The Casa is a superb romantic getaway. After a day of hiking on the bluff or among the towering redwoods, we would soak in the very private hot tub, enjoy the sunset from the swing in the loft, and a glass of champagne by a toasty fire in the wood-burning fireplace. (The owner provides lots of wood -- a nice touch.) The Casa is well furnished, equipped and maintained so that we had no surprises during our visit. The owner is very knowledgeable and easy to contact, so details of our rental were easy to arrange. Our security deposit was returned promptly. "

... "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your place at Sea Ranch. It was a real pleasure to have a house which has been there long enough to develop grace and character. It was also refreshing to find a living room with books - and ones that look like they are actually read. The view of course is spectacular. Saturday was one of those rare, warm days when there was no wind. Since there were no whitecaps, it was much easier to spot whales. It was amazing. The sea about halfway to the horizon looked like a freeway for them. We finally stopped counting. Thanks so much for your hospitality. Casa Pacis is cozy, comfortable and a joy to visit...
