BAYSIDE RETREAT is the perfect place for active singles, couples, and families who want to be conveniently located near the WATER and have a great WATER VIEW. ESPECIALLY, if you love watersports: SURFING, BOATING, FISHING, KAYAKING, WIND-SURFING, PADDLE-BOARDING, KITE-FLYING, CLAM-DIGGING...
Bayside Retreat is a comfortable, unpretentious 3 bedroom/2 bath home, (but the floor plan is like two homes). It comfortably accommodates a couple, a couple with children or TWO FAMILIES . There are TWO FULLY EQUIPPED KITCHENS! The larger of the two sides of this home has a spacious 'great' room with a woodstove and two bedrooms. It sleeps 4 adults. The 'Blue' Room has a queen sized memory foam mattress; and the 'Green' Room has a memory foam double mattress. There are air mattresses, futons and cribs available on request for the kids.
The smaller one-bedroom side of the home sleeps 4 (1 double bed and 1 sofa bed); A door between the two sides of the home can be left open or closed to provide privacy as desired. It is available as a stand-alone vacation home.
There are board games, a telescope and books to entertain, along with DIRECTV on (one 42' flat-screen TV, one 36' and two more TV's in bedrooms (with HBO, SHOWTIME, CINEMAX, STARZ, etc.,). Oh, and you'll notice lots of original oil and watercolor paintings on the walls done by the owner and friends (they're for sale...).
The view of the bay from the great room is breathtaking. Relax in the backyard with a glass of wine, watch the seals frolic in the bay and the boats come in to dock. Grill fresh fish or oysters on the gas barbeque in the backyard.
After the sun goes down, curl up on the comfy sectional in front of the wood-burning stove and RELAX...RELAX...RELAX!
Either the one-bedroom side or the two-bedroom side may be available if you do not need a three-bedroom vacation home. Please contact the owner for details and inquiries on availability of a smaller space.
Bayside Retreat is arranged like two connected homes. The one-bedroom/one bath side has a full kitchen and front room; and the two-bedroom/one-bath side has a full kitchen and large living room. The door between enhances privacy when wanted or needed. ...moreless

About the owner: We are native Californians who migrated from San Francisco to Sonoma County in the 60's. We currently live in the Sonoma Valley in the hamlet of Glen Ellen.
Why the Owner Chose Bodega Bay: It has always been a dream of ours to have a home on the coast (there's only so much property on the coast and there won't be any more added, so....). We wanted a home with a view of the water that we could live in when we retire; but until that time, we are happy to share it with other water lovers!
The Unique Benefits at this House: The wonderful view, the spacious open-beam ceiling in the great room, the wood-burning stove, two kitchens...and, did I mention the wonderful view. ALL that--and the sound of the foghorn and seals barking--makes this home a perfect place to retire. But, until then, it's just a great, comfortable place to relax...relax...relax!
