The Gualala Area

A Brief Explainer

Adventure Rents is located in the village of Gualala on Highway 1, along northern California's redwood coast, about three hours driving time from San Francisco. Adventure Rents launches their rental fleet on the Gualala River that forms the boundary between Sonoma and Mendocino counties, and Gualala Village is just north of Mendocino County's southernmost border. Visitors who travel to Gualala and Adventure Rents will do well to relax and let their adventure begin with the journey. There is no fast way to discover our redwood coast region, so it is best to wend one's way at a mellow tempo, rambling along and enjoying Mother Nature's magnificent vistas from every turn of the road. Once you arrive, the town of Gualala and its neighboring communities offer an unspoiled region bursting with places of interest to see and a wealth of activities for all ages and lifestyles. The variety of places to stay range from campgrounds for tent, cabin or RV camping to hotel or motel rooms, housekeeping cottages, unique Inns and B&B's or vacation rental homes along the coast or in the redwood forest. Most welcome families and many are pet friendly. There are also a wide range of restaurants to suit all palates and pocketbooks. The village of Gualala offers a variety of services and amenities: supermarkets, pharmacy, full-service bank, ATM's, medical clinic, gas stations (with auto repair), plus an abundance of retail shops, art galleries and services. In addition to kayaking or canoeing with Adventure Rents, in our area one can play golf on a world-class, 18-hole Scottish-style links, hike on well-maintained trails through the forest or along the ocean bluffs, stroll the beaches, go tide-pooling along the craggy shoreline, ride horses along stretches of ocean beach or forested trails, play disc golf, visit several other local attractions, or take a day trip to a number of nearby locations for a different perspective of our Redwood Coast.
