Bodega Bay house description

Enjoy a romantic getaway for two or bring family and friends - either way, you'll have a wonderful time at our charming cottage by the sea. For the active, the beach is just steps away - fly your kite, picnic, build sandcastles, explore the tidepools or dive for abalone. For the more passive, sip a cool drink on the deck and enjoy the spectacular view or curl up in front of the fireplace with a good book.

Our home is well suited for two couples - two of the bedrooms each have a queen bed and ocean views. There's a 3rd bedroom with twin beds plus a den with fullsize futon if you bring the family. All linens are provided. There are also beach toys, towels, chairs, picnic supplies, plenty of books and games for all ages - and high speed wireless internet access.

The northern California coast is beautiful and relaxing and you don't need to leave the house at all - but if you do, you'll find almost limitless activities to fill your days. The area has many quaint villages, shops and galleries filled with local arts and crafts, restaurants serving fabulous fresh seafood, wonderful wineries, historic sites and natural wonders galore. Just be sure to return for the incredible sunsets!

Our cozy home is filled with antiques and comfy furniture. We think you will feel right at home. We have visitors who have returned year after year with their family and friends and now think of the cottage as their second home. We hope you will too! Please check our availability calendar.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1960

              About the owner: I am an entrepreneur and workaholic. I have been an editor of a scientific journal, a travel agent, a paralegal, a real estate agent and property manager, a commodity trader, a financial newsletter editor, and resident neighborhood psychic. I currently produce video biographies of seniors, interviewing them and recording some of their family history and stories so they can be permanently saved on DVD for future generations. I have helped raise 7 children. I love to read, garden, dance, travel and practically have my own personal zoo. I am a gatherer of information about almost anything. And I have an incredible husband, Jeff, who puts up with all my nonsense.

              Why the Owner Chose Bodega Bay:
              My parents bought the cottage more than 50 years ago. It is the closest beach community to the Sacramento area. It is close to San Francisco, Sausalito, Berkeley, Napa Valley and Sonoma wine country. I grew up spending vacations there and so did my children. It is a great place to share with family and friends.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              It is only a minute out the front door down the path onto the beach. But if you don't feel like a walk, you can lie in bed, sit on the sofa or at the dining room table, or out on the deck and have a wonderful view of the ocean and the waves crashing on the rocks. I never tire of the wonderful sunsets - every one is different but terrific in its own way. And the most amazing thing - you can actually see millions of stars because the night sky is so dark. We also have deer, lots of shorebirds, and great tidepools.
