Bodega Bay house description

'Pacific View' is a 3-bed/2-bath 2000 sq.ft. private home on Gull Drive in the Bodega Harbor subdivision of Bodega Bay. It backs up to the 1st Fairway of the Bodega Harbor Golf course and has gorgeous views of Bodega Head, Doran Beach and the Pacific Ocean. The house is well-laid out with vaulted ceilings in all rooms, beautiful wood molding, skylights and tall picture windows. There are 2 beach access trails off of Gull Drive so you are literally minutes from the water.

Layout of House: All bedrooms/kitchen/bathrooms/dining room are located on the main-level. The living room is on the upper level-up about 6 carpeted steps with a railing. 2-car garage.

There are 2 low-level cement steps and 2 wooden steps prior to front door. As you enter the front door on the main floor the Master Bedroom is to your right & sits facing the front of the home with ocean views from all its windows. This a large room with a King size bed, TV/Cable/DVD/VHS. There is also a separate full bath with double vanity/toilet closet in this room. Room is large with a trundle bed in it as well (2-twins...great for kids). The beds have reading lamps for all guests.

The Dining rm/Kitchen is on the main floor as well. The kitchen is fully-equipped and the dining table sits next to it and seats 8 guests. We keep the pantry stocked with various seasonings, teas, coffee, foil, saran wrap...etc. There are two decks off these rooms. A deck to the back facing the golf course with 2-lounge chairs and an enclosed deck to the side with the hot-tub. The hot-tub deck is enclosed with a 4.5 foot fence with a barked in area behind it. Here sits a Weber propane barbecue as well.

Bedrooms 2 & 3 are in the back wing of the house. Quite often we hear that guests love the 'quiet' layout of the home. Both these rooms are spacious with vaulted ceilings , Queen beds/TV/DVD. Both have reading lamps for all guests. All King and Queen beds have memory foam Pure Comfort Mattress Topper's on them making for a comfortable night's sleep. The 2nd full bath is along this same hallway and houses the laundry closet (washer/dryer). These back rooms have a view of the golf course. The 3rd bedroom has a water view from its front facing windows.

The Living Room upstairs has wonderful views out 4 very large picture windows. There are two vacant lots across from us which add to the open view. Beautiful sunsets and a great view of Doran Beach, Bodega Head and Pacific Ocean beyond. Lrg. Screen 55' HDTV/BLU-ray/DVD, stero-cd player, bookcase with a lrg. assortment of books & magazines, and a lrg. assortment of DVD's. Leather couches and a fireplace in this spacious room make it a wonderfully relaxing area to spend with family/friends.

Families: For guests with kids we have located in closets: hi-chair, swing, infant seat, playpen, toy box, jogging stroller (garage). Closet full of games & Nintendo Video games.

Beach items: Beach blankets, chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, ice chests, sand toys located in garage. We even keep a beach pass for families wanting to drive to the State Beach at Doran entrance with all their 'stuff' saving you the $6 parking fee.

What do we/guests love most about the home? The house has a very open uncluttered feel with all the sunlight from skylights/windows and vaulted ceilings. Love being able to walk out the front door and hit the beach in 2-3 min. The Master Bdrm in the front and the Guests Bdrms in the back wing of the home give a measure of privacy to couples/families with kids. We clean the home ourselves so know it's clean, functioning and is always well stocked with soap/paper products/supplies. Extra pillows/blankets in all rooms. Free long-distance calling to USA/Canada as well. A home away from home without all the 3C's: chores, clutter & chaos.

The town still houses the original school house and church that were featured in the movie. Occidental about 30 minutes away has Sonoma Canopy Tours (ziplining...NOT to be missed!) and follow up with a great home style meal at Union Hotel or Negris. Great shops in Occidental as well all within walking distance; In Freestone visit Osmosis Day Spa & Freestone Wild Flour Bread Bakery.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2001

                  About the owner: Dave and I are both college graduates [Dave Business Degree SSU/Debbie RN Degree PUC]. Dave grew up in Penngrove & Debbie is from the Bay Area. Dave runs Acrat Plumbing & Heating, LLC and is a LICENSED General Contractor, Electrical Contractor, Plumbing & Heating Contractor (can we say OVERACHIEVER?!). Debbie runs Bodega Bay Rentals, LLC and cares for our 3 children. We love the outdoors. We are also supportive Sponsors of Sonoma County 4H and FFA.

                  Why the Owner Chose Bodega Bay:
                  Dave has worked over the years on many of the homes in the Harbor and we'd grown to love driving out to this area. When the opportunity to own a home of our own appeared we jumped on the offer. We feel very fortunate to be a part of the Bodega Harbor Community.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Doran Beach is a wonderful location to enjoy with children; Armstrong Woods with its majestic redwood trees; Hwy 1 is a beautiful scenic Drive; the restaurants in the Bodega Bay area are fabulous!; Close drive to everything but far enough to feel like you are away from everything! As a family that travels we so appreciate when owners have pre-stocked THEIR homes well. I like to think we've done the same. A fully stocked kitchen with foil/ziplocks...dishes/pots & pans that are in GOOD shape...wine/bar glasses...seasonings; family supplies that include games, baby gear, beach supplies.... A home that functions and is clean is what I look for in a home. A hot tub that sparkles and works is a MUST. These are things we look for in homes we rent and they are a must in our own.
