"We were charmed by this space. It felt open, roomy. The view of the Pacific was wonderful. Good location. Lots of room on deck and we had some welcome visitors daily: a large quail family. One evening, a lovely doe looked in on us. Can hear the ocean waves at night -- it is so quiet, peaceful."

"I loved, loved, loved this place!! It was the perfect getaway. The house is beautiful and had everything we needed. Easy walk to the beach and drive to downtown if needed.
It would be great for families and I raved about it to everyone I know.
Look forward to visiting again!"

"This cottage exceeded my expectations! Very clean, well designed layout for a small space. Incredibly stocked kitchen. Pleasant surprise to find the bed in the living area is actually a KING! You absolutely cannot beat the stunning location! I have never stayed in a house with such a beautiful location. No neighbors, off the beaten path, get right on HWY 1 and accessible to everything. Probably my favorite beach house ever!"

"My 77 year old mother and I stayed at this beautiful home for our mother-daughter trip. The home was easy for her to maneuver around with or without her cane. She mostly got around without her cane which was surprisingly nice to see. There is a step down into the sunken living room, and the sturdy separation wall gave her something to support herself for the step up and down. There is a jetted tub in the master bath which I highly recommend. Both bathrooms are nicely updated. I applaude the massive amounts of outlets in the home so you can chargeup everywhere, even on the back patio. There is limited to no cell service (I have TMobile) in this area of Bodega Bay. However, you can use wifi calling if your phone has this function, and there are phones in the home.
The location of the home is just north of downtown Bodega Bay, and west of the quaint towns and wineries of Sonoma. However, with fabulous views of the ocean from literally every angle of the home, you will not want to leave; and, with a modern kitchen you do not have to leave. Listen to the waves rolling in with a sky full of stars and the moon reflecting off the ocean. And, enjoy the best sunsets ever from the front deck.
There is beach access fairly close to the home and across the street (Rt 1). During the day, a few families and couples hang out on the beach, but you do not hear them at all. You can enjoy the ocean from a cliff-like edge above the beach if you cannot maneuver your way down the path to the beach
The rental company folks are very patient and nice since we; checked in late, did not carry the provided directions to the home (Note: use GPS for the home address after you are in Bodega), and were polite when we called them at 8pm with an important question -- how to work the AC (there is none).
There are only a few items I would suggest for an even more perfect stay: clean the windowsills where you twist the windows open; mention in the ad and check-in book how to keep the home cool since there is no AC -- your instructions worked; add screens to the sliders throughout the home; update the outdoor seating and loungers for the back decks.
Overall, the home was clean and nice, with very positive energy. I would stay here again, and have already recommended it to friends."
