"We stayed at The Mermaid's Perch in June 2015 - wow, what a nice surprise! This is just like a home-away-from-home - has everything we needed and more for a wonderful 5 days
at the beach. The condo is surprisingly big, sleeping 6. Downstairs has one room with two twin beds, the other room has a king and the bedroom upstairs has a queen.
Sleeping with the window and/or sliding glass door open allowed us to listen to the ocean all night long. There is steam shower upstairs - what a treat! There are even blow
dryers there so don't bother packing one of those. We had a problem with the wifi when we first got there - we contacted the owner and got permission to reboot the router
and that fixed it. Do not hesitate to contact the owner for any issues you may have - they are very responsive and helpful. The condo has a washer and dryer.
The kitchen has everything we needed to prepare meals. As other reviewers have noted the view from the balcony is spectacular. My opinion is it is probably the best view on
that beach. It is at the top of the hill so overlooks more beach than most of the other condos/homes in that area. Speaking of the hill, that is the only downside. You
need to be relatively young/healthy to walk that hill. It is only about 300 yards (guestimation) but it is pretty steep. However, if you walk a few miles on the beach you
can always stop at the Rio Cafe for a beverage/meal before climbing back up the hill to the condo. The food at the Rio Cafe is superb and the people there are great - a good
mix of locals and vacationers.
There is parking for two cars at the condo, more if you are willing to park down by the beach. It is a walk from there to the condo though."

"This home was perfect for our vacation! We had three adults and two boys under 8 and the house had plenty of room and tons of fun games for my boys! We had so much fun playing board games that the TV was never used during the entire vacation. The house is well stocked with everything you could want or need for a week or more. The beds are really comfortable and the furniture was really cozy. The owner provides tons of helpful information on things to do in the area for fun. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone looking to get away. Beautiful location and beautiful home."

"The views of Bodega Bay were fantastic, and we saw a bobcat making his rounds-seemed a bit sleepy though; the views of the bay at night was splendid, peaceful.
However, it would be great if the owners provided more games and puzzles; our kids would have loved that on the day it was too cold and windy to go to the beach-good thing they have a hot tub; it came in handy.
We will be back next year!"

"We've stayed at a lot of vacation rental houses. This rates as one of the very best. The open layout of the main floor is spectacular, the upstairs bedrooms--and the beds--- comfortable, and the outdoor seating areas are relaxing. The location is great.....a quiet spot just steps from a few eateries. The manager kept in touch to make certain we had everything we needed. Highly recommended."
