    Chris S from San Rafael, CA recommends this vacation rental

    Great house, we were there in the off season so so quiet, only the regular pair of deer in the meadow seemed to be our neighbors. Just right for my husband and I and our Boston terrier. We loved that it was an older house with great character, the garden was beautiful, the hot tub sublime. We hope to be back, we didi not want to leave!

    a guest from Sacramento, CA recommends this vacation rental

    Booking the rental was very easy and they company was accommodating, allowing us to rent only for 2 nights instead of 3. Directions to the property were easy to follow and everything was great when we got there.
    There was a stale smell when entering the house, but it's understandable since nobody lives there and because of the moisture of the air in Sea Ranch.
    The kitchen was fully equipped, the house has a nice Buddist vibe and enjoyed the hot tub!
    Our dogs learned not to be afraid of going up and down the stairs and loved watching the deers from the balcony.
    We would definitely recommend this place and we are planning on staying there again!

    Loved the location, the privacy, views and lots of different sitting areas of this house. Also very glad to find a saltwater hot tub - no chlorine, what a relief! Any issues were minor, comparatively speaking. The furniture and bedding were comfortable and tasteful. Would recommend that you mention that this is a "no shoes" house.

    This house was incredible. A truly great retreat with friends. The location/proximity to the bluff, the trails, and the pool was perfect. The house itself was designed with great style and we loved the reverse floor plan which allowed us a better view of the ocean while sitting in the main area. The hot tub and garden area were sublime. Everyone we interacted with at Sea Ranch Escape was wonderful. We will come again!

    I have stayed in Moonshadow several times and continue to return. It is a peaceful beautiful way to relax and retreat. It is elegantly and comfortably decorated. It is clean and well maintained. There is a small kitchen for cooking and we didn't even venture out for meals. The location is superb, in the meadow with a view of the ocean. It is small and not appropriate for a party or big family gathering. The rental property staff provided excellent service. Thank you, we will return!

    Loved the house - so charmingly decorated and comfortable. Loved all the beautiful artwork and rugs and the quirky coffee table (looked like it was bound to run away!). One suggestion: we were there on 2 very rainy days. The owners request no shoes in the house. It would have been nice to have a bench just inside the door - out of the rain -- to take off shoes and store them underneath. Otherwise, a great stay!

    Moonshadow is a fantastic little house. It is perfectly equipped with all you need for the stay.

We had a great time and only wish we could have stayed longer- thanks for keeping a great rental.

    This was our first visit to Sea Ranch. We were very pleased with the rental, amenities and location. We felt very centrally located and everything was easily accessible. We had all the basics and then some in the kitchen to cook all of our meals after one relatively short trip to the grocery store. We were cheerfully greeted by the rental agent office. We would definitely stay here again for future vacations. Although some of the books and music included at the home were old and dated, our family spent the evenings exploring new genres of music and literature.

    My husband and I loved the warm, inviting, and personal space of Moonshadow. It was perfect for two people, gave us very close and easy access to the coastal trail, and it was lovely to hear the waves at night and while in the hot tub. The owners have furnished the house with such inviting, interesting, and warm details--just a good vibe. We loved it, and hope to stay again in the future when we're in California.

    Moonshadow has everything you will need for a quiet romantic get away for two. Well equipped and charming property with beautiful views and wind protected decks. The cable TV was cutting in and out on us, but we brought a few DVDs and spent most our time hiking with the dogs, cooking, reading and sipping wine on the deck. The jacuzzi is also clean and in new condition. Probably more comfortable for two people but you could squeeze two couples in since it's two br, 2 bath. The challenge is the bedrooms are downstairs under the kitchen living space, so once one person is up and walking around upstairs, so is everyone else :)

    We have stayed at many places at Sea Ranch, and Moonshadow was one of the very best for a true Sea Ranch experience. The size was perfect for us, and the view was wonderful. In addition, the house has a quiet, wind-protected interior garden that was a peaceful place to sit and relax. The kitchen is small but efficient. The location is great for us, close to the bluff trail but not exposed to the wind, and it is a short walk to the swimming pool and tennis courts. All in all, we loved it.

    My husband and I spent a few days in Moonshadow to unwind directly following our wedding. The house and property were beautiful and very well maintained. The decor inside was very tasteful and interesting, and the place was immaculate. The location is great - we took advantage of about 7 miles of the trail - and the hot tub is the perfect way to relax after a day spent walking. While sitting on the porch one night we noticed bats flying around and we went inside to sit on the couch and watch them eat bugs near the tree outside the window. Also, the sheep were in the lot next door - what a nice surprise! I would definitely recommend Moonshadow and Sea Ranch.

    We were in love with Moonshadows from the first moment! It is charming and comfortable and in a beautiful location... like being in a treehouse.. the views are wonderful!! My son and daughter-in-law were visiting from Japan, and soaking in the hot tub every night made them feel right at home. We cooked several meals and found the equipment and supplies to be excellent. The weather wasn't great, so we didn't get to enjoy the deck and yard, but plan a return trip sometime this Summer! Thanks to the owners for making such a lovely retreat!

    This was my second or third stay at Moonshadow. I enjoy this property and it's wonderful view and ammenities. It is unusual in that the main living area (living room, kitchen, dining, and wonderful deck) are upstairs. This allows the visitor to see the spectacular view at all times. I/we have enjoyed the size of the home as well, which makes it a cozy environment. The home must be one of the older homes at Sea Ranch, but it has been kept up very nicely. I would recommend this home to my friends and would happily enjoy another visit to Moonshadow sometime in the future. Enjoy!

    Many birds in the area and the neighbor's bird feeders next door attract many hummingbirds and other small birds. Great spot for nature viewing!
    We were surprised to have have to pay for linen rentals- we haven't had to do that before.
    Also many items in the kitchen are very high on shelves or on top of cabinets. No footstool was available so we had to use chairs. Perhaps it is especially good for tall guests!

    This place is great! Compared to others I have been to, this is more established with kitchen utensils, spices, etc. Nice touch with the hot tub having a fold down wall so one can view the ocean while tubbing as well. The living area is upstairs and the bedrooms downstairs. The bathrooms are both downstairs which can be a little inconvient but what the hey. I recommend this place and the price makes it a deal.

    We loved the house. It feels like a cozy cabin, very warm and intimate. It is nicely furnished and the location is great. It was very clean and everything works fine. The only thing we'd change is the chairs in the living room aren't so comfy esp. if you are not tall. All in all it was great! We had a wonderful relaxing stay. glad they take doggies. We made sure ours was extremely well behaved (she always is really)so they will continue to accept them.

    We especially loved the little upstairs balcony, where we could watch deer and whitewater at the same time. It was pleasant being so close to the the trails and the ocean, especially Olson Beach (the dogs loved it there!) Our older dog had a bit of trouble negotiating the spiral stairs, but otherwise all was well. Just a note to add: more smaller kindling would have been helpful.

    Carolyn C from Suisun City, CA recommends this vacation rental

    Second time staying at the vacation home rental, Moonshadow, through Sea Ranch Escapes was just as memorable as the first time five years before. One of the best features is that the main living area is the open layout of the entire second floor extending to an outside deck. From the kitchen to the window seat, everyone upstairs is included in the socializing. The sleeping and bathing areas are on the ground floor which is unique and nice. The house is set back in a meadow along the coastline giving the view from the deck a beaurtiful broad look of the bluffs, surf and horizon.
    A couple of things to know for staying in Sea Ranch vacation homes: Bring a flashlight to help you find your way around the outside of the house at night; from parking the car or curbing the dog, it's darker than you'd expect it to be. Always check for ticks on your bodies, clothing and dogs. At Moonshadow, a steep, steel, circular staircase is what takes you upstairs to the kitchen, dining and living areas so keep in mind how often and physical it will be to mobilize between the two floors, especially when needing to go to the water closet.

    There are far grander houses in The Sea Ranch with all the modern amenities one could possibly wish for but Moonshadow is the home my wife and I and our well mannered dog love the best. With it's window seats, comfortable furniture, old fashioned, "Franklin-type" wood burning stove, the exposed beams, and the warmth of wood it is the perfect romantic, cozy, get-away. The "blue water" views are great, as is its location in the meadow. We are planning an extended stay next year.

    Moon Shadow is a very popular vacation home and for good reason. It has beautiful views. It is a cozy, homey place. The owners take good care of their little gem and have upgraded the amenities over the years--the new hot tub is a welcome improvement. Lastly, they are kind enough to allow us to share their home with our dog who loves visiting Sea Ranch and Moon Shadow.

    Hi,

    I have been coming up to Sea Ranch for over 20 years and have recently been bringing three close friends with me for my birthday celebration. All of us said, "This is it!" I felt at home - cozy, beautiful, warm decor, the books intrigued me as I have studied religions; it piqued my curiosity about the owners. The two decks and the views of the ocean gave us different places to lounge, read, take in the beauty of the 10 miles of coastline. Thank you very much for sharing your home with others - it is a very tranquil, soothing setting...Pam

    Moonshadow is an awesome little home for two couples with a reverse floor plan, a great hot tub with an ocean view, two comfy bedrooms and baths, and a super little deck off the upstairs living room, also with an ocean view. It is doggie friendly and near a perfect beach for dogs to romp on. The new harbor seal pups, nearby in the other direction, made this stay special. We always enjoy being tucked a bit back into the trees. This not only gets us out of the wind, but it gives us a better view of the birds and the deer in the meadow. These homeowners might want to upgrade their supply of foil, baggies, paper towels and cleaning would make the stay a little less hectic. Otherwise it's perfect!

    Kitchen was lacking a few basics that you wouldn't think to pack - salt, sugar, tin foil, cooking oil. Had to go out for these items.

    We discovered a few cooking items that we're not clean. Probably just not checked by previous guest after coming out of dishwasher.

    Two of the heaters were not working until we got help from the management's handy man on day two. The weather was cold too.

The home is cozy warmly decorated and we have been there before . Moving out midway through our stay was a bit of a hassle but we were moved to an esquisite home that made the move fun and exciting

    Overall, we had a very lovely stay at Moonshadow house. The property is beautiful, well-maintained, and very tranquil. We loved the layout of the house with the kitchen and living room upstairs and the bedrooms downstairs. We loved the location and the beautiful views of the water. This is the best house we've stayed at at the Sea Ranch, and we've stayed in many over the years. It is obvious that the owners care about and maintain the property well.

    One thing that was disappointing was having to deal with home repair issues during our time to relax and get away from that kind of thing. The dishwasher leaked through the ceiling into the bathroom downstairs. I contacted the rental company and the owner came by promptly to assess the situation. A handyman was sent out to repair the dishwasher. While he was there, he also started to repair the fence and drill noisily, which was unpleasant and disruptive. While we understand that sometimes maintenance issues arise and need to be addressed, it was disruptive to have to deal with this issue during our vacation. I was disappointed that the rental company did not offer us anything to compensate for this inconvenience when I expressed my concern upon check-out. Even a simple apology would have been appreciated.

    Another thing that could have been better on the part of the rental company: there were no spare plastic trash bags, so once we used the one left by the housekeepers, we had no bags.

    We stayed at Moonshadow for a week and captured the July full moon during our stay and sunny,clear and cool weather. This was our fifth trip to Sea Ranch and first at Moonshadow. Of all, it reflects the most warmth with its wood floors and smaller space. Having the bedrooms down and one open room with kitchen, dining and living rooms flowing together upstairs was very comfortable, but the great view and deck made the location. Just right for 1-4 people. We plan to stay there again when we return if available, and the good energy in the space stays with you when you leave.

    On warm days (which aren't all that frequent), the upstairs can be uncomfortably warm.

    a guest from Long Beach, CA recommends this vacation rental

    We really enjoyed our stay. The house is small and cozy and was just right for the two of us and our dog and an occasional guest. We liked the easy access to the Bluff Trail. We thought the enclosed garden would be a place where we could keep the dog off leash, but the areas under the house are open and the dog was able to get under the house and out to the field, so that should be clarified for future renters. Also the house next door is really close and we could see the guests there grilling, hanging out on their deck and garden and in the hot tub. Fortunately there were not many guests there while we were there but when there were guests, there was very little privacy. The kitchen amenities were okay. They had good pots and pans but also many that were not great and I would recommend getting rid of some of the lesser quality ones since there are plenty of pans and this would create more room for food storage which there was none. Also, the hot tub jets were not that strong. Overall we really enjoyed our stay though I think we would probably look for another property when we return.
