We are Dog Friendly


Why not bring along your canine friend? A stay in Sea Ranch wouldn’t be quite the same without your best friend, family member, and 4-legged companion. At Ocean View Properties we have several homes that offer dog friendly accommodations. Bring your canine pal along with you. All dogs need to be on a leash while staying in Sea Ranch – but oh, how dogs love it here!

As great as the scenic California Sonoma Mendocino coast is for people, it is also for canines. There are over 40 miles of hiking trails including several trails right on the ocean bluff. Find paths to sandy, secluded beaches. Dogs love fresh air, nature, the outdoors, and to explore the new and unique. There is nothing like witnessing a dog’s curious fascination with scents discovered when walking in new territory.

When booking on line, use the convenient Dog Friendly search filter to view homes that welcome canines, or ask an Ocean View Properties reservationist to assist you.

Dog Friendly Guidelines and Resources

We take great pride in creating a pleasant experience for all human and dog guests. While staying in a dog friendly accommodation, please keep in mind we discourage you from allowing your dog on any of the furnishings in the vacation home rental unit. However, if your dog insists upon getting up on any furniture piece, please bring a protective sheet to provide protection to fabrics and furnishings and a towel for drying wet doggy paws. In order to insure a pleasant experience, we ask you to observe the following:

  • Dogs on a leash are welcome at the Ocean View Properties Office. So stop by for a doggy treat!
  • Dogs must be on a leash while on property at all times. This includes beaches too. Sonoma County restricts a maximum leash length not to exceed 6 feet.
  • It is important to stay on the marked trails and out of the meadow grasses to avoid ticks and comply with The Sea Ranch Association Rules and Regulations for the community of The Sea Ranch.
  • Please remove dog droppings left behind by your dog. This includes in the yard located at your vacation home rental unit and on trails. Remember not everyone is a dog lover like we are, so please have your dog fully under control and on a leash when walking about.

There is a dog park located at The Sea Ranch offering the perfect and safe spot for your dog to run, sniff and socialize. To get to the dog park from Highway One, turn east on Deer Trail (Mile Marker 56.88) and drive a short distance to the first rock driveway on the right and park within the fenced in area. Take the walking path east to the dog park.

Should your dog require attention from a Veterinarian while staying at The Sea Ranch, please contact our local Veterinarian: Steve Bohn, DVM Gualala Veterinary Clinic 38600 S. Highway One Gualala, CA 707/884-3313
