  • Sailfish is a one bedroom home with studio, covered carport, garage and guesthouse located on the West Meadow of The Sea Ranch and was built in 2002 with the idea of bringing a sailboat to land. It is a unique structure architecturally and has the ultimate privacy from the ‘commons (open space)’ that exist on three sides. It perches on the side of a slope and has views down & across a thicket of vegetation to the rocky shore beyond . Sailfish (Gilbert House) was one of approximately thirty homes featured in The Sea Ranch, a book written by Donlyn Lyndon & Jim Alinder, (2004). It is also included in the 2013 edition entitled, The Sea Ranch:Fifty years of Architecture, Place and Community on the Northern California Coast. The houses they chose to include in this 300 page book demonstrate the Sea Ranch ‘vision’.
    An addition was added to Sailfish in 2016 that includes the Guesthouse and a one car garage. The existing deck was expanded and now connects to the new addition. The new deck offers additional outdoor dining space and room to relax on 2 chaise lounges. The hot tub is positioned on the deck with a view of the ocean and of the stars at night. The main house will not be available to guests and remains vacant during any rental stay. The new garage houses the washer & dryer and is set up for keyless entry. The Guesthouse entry is through a patio door also accessible with keyless entry. Newly added in 2018, on the side of the garage, is the outdoor shower. The shower is connected to the on demand water heater, so no cold showers unless you desire one.
