Bodega Bay house description

This beautiful 3 bedroom home has frontline water views of Bodega Bay. Relax in the hot tub on the large private deck, take a hike in the State Park next door, bike to bodega head and whale watch, kayak in the harbor, or curl up and read a good book.

Each bedroom has a full private bathroom, 2 terry cloth bath robes and slippers, flat screen TV, new foam mattress (deluxe tempurpedic king in the master), high thread count sheets and a down comforter.

The brand new kitchen is well equipped with stainless steel appliances, granite counters, cloth napkins, martini glasses and everything you might need to make a great meal. Enjoy the cozy living room while you watch the birds on the harbor and listen to music on the stereo with iPod dock. There is high speed internet and a Mac computer for your use.

                  If you have kayaks, you can literally walk them down the driveway to the harbor when the tide is high. Kayaking in the inner harbor is very peaceful and there is great bird watching. Bodega Bay is also a great place to go bike riding. If you follow Westshore Road around the harbor, you will come to Bodega Head which is a great ride and there is great whale watching for you at the end. There is also great hiking nearby. If you go down the driveway and turn right on Westshore you will come to a boat launch and campground. Almost immediately opposite the campground you will see a break in the fence and a trail which crosses the bluff (watch for ticks) and goes all the way to a very private beach. There is also a great hike around Bodega Head from the main parking lot. If golfing is your preference, check out the Links at Bodega Harbour. Call for a tee time.

                  There is horseback riding nearby at Chanslor Ranch which is just north of town.

                  Eating is also a great local activity. Right around the corner on Westshore is the Spud Point Crab Company for excellent clam chowder and fresh crab, or the sandwich shop next door which has a killer tri tip sandwich. If you go back to Eastshore Road, there is a small shopping center that has a nice coffee house and Terrapin Creek Restaurant which I think is the best restaurant in Bodega Bay. While you are there, check out Local Color which is a fine collection of local artistic talent. If you go back to Bodega Highway, Pelican Plaza has a nice market with good sandwiches and right at the corner is the Boat House which is my favorite for fish and chip. There is also Lucas Wharf and Inn at the Tides are larger restaurants which are both good and both sell fresh local seafood. A little further down the highway hidden behind a berm on the highway is the Dog House which has great burgers, hotdogs and fries.

                  There is also an ice cream store right there.


                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1996

                  About the owner: I'm a graduate of UC Berkeley from the school of natural resources and have a law degree from Loyola Law school in Los Angeles. For the past 28 years I have had my own law firm in the beautiful town Petaluma. I am an outdoor enthusiast and love to travel anyplace I can be in nature. While a great city is a wonderful place to visit, if it's not nearby some natural wonder, I'm probably not interested. I'm lucky enough to live in the San Francisco Bay Area where I have the best of it all. My wife and I have done a fair amount of international travel as well as exploring much of the United States and Canada but we are ready for the next adventure. We love music, theater, dance (the Lines Ballet in San Francisco is not to be missed), great food, camping, hiking, biking, kayaking, and reading.

                  Why the Owner Chose Bodega Bay:
                  Once you visit you will know why I bought this home. The unobstructed frontline water view is one of a kind. Being the last home before the State Park provides incredible privacy without being far away from town.
