Lovely Northern California coastal home in beautiful Bodega Bay with unobstructed spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, Seal Rock, Bodega headlands, Bodega Bay, Bodega Harbor and Marina, coastal marshland, state park wild lands, and surrounding coastal hills of Sonoma County, northern California's exquisitely beautiful wine country. Located in exclusive Bodega Harbour North, private subdivision, with 18-hole ocean-front golf course, ocean view tennis courts, near-Olympic size heated swimming pool beside the Pacific Ocean (limited access), basketball courts, fully equipped gym, locker room and sauna (limited access), nearby beaches with spectacular northern California coastline views, miles and miles of hiking and biking trails, and waterfront fine restaurants. Expansive ocean and bay views from every room in the house (including one huge master bedroom with its own reading room and bath and a large loft above living room, with closet and queen bed, which serves as second bedroom) and from the large wrap-around deck just right for sunning, dining, or just enjoying the marvelous water views. Sleeps 6 (new beds not shown in photos). Located just a few minutes drive from the town of Bodega where Alfred Hitchcock's famous film "The Birds" was filmed.

Why Ken chose Bodega Bay
Spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, Doran Beach Park, Bodega Head, Seal Rock, Bodega Bay, Bodega Harbor. The Alfred Hitchcock film, The Birds, was filmed nearby. The pristine beauty of this area hasn't changed since the Hitchcock film was made here in the 60s. Peaceful, secluded, and amazing panoramic views of Pacific ocean, Bodega Head, marina and bay from large deck and from nearly every room of the house.
What makes this House unique
Spectacular views of ocean, bay, marina, and surrounding Sonoma County coastal scenery; see variety of wildlife up close from our living room ; we have seen deer, bobcats, hawks, vultures, jack rabbits, egrets, and other birds and wildlife just outside our living room in front of our home; walk from our house on a beautiful nature trail along the Bay to the long sandy beaches of Doran Beach Park and beyond where you can swim and sometimes see dolphins playing just offshore. Seafood, bayfront restaurants just a few blocks away. Fresh crab market at marina docks, crab boat fleet, and trails of Bodega Head just a short drive away (just 6 miles).

We enjoyed the amazing views from this comfortable, well-equipped home.
Thank you, Nancy, for another perfect, 5 out of 5-star review of our home in Bodega Bay. The beautiful, unobstructed, expansive views of the Pacific Ocean, seal rock, Bodega Bay, Bodega Head, and the Bodega Bay marina from our large wrap-around ocean-view deck, and from nearly every room of our home, are among the best anywhere. Not only do we enjoy these spectacular ocean views but we have often seen deer, bobcats, jack rabbits, egrets, and other wild life right outside our living room windows in our ocean-view front yard. I hope you had a chance to enjoy the scenic, nature walk along the Bay to the long, wide, sandy beaches at Doran Beach Park, below our home, where on occasion we have seen groups of dolphins playing near shore in the surf. Thank you again for renting from us, Nancy. Hope to have you and yours as our guests once again sometime soon. All the best, Ken.
A great stay
We had a good time at this location. Perfect for a family with kids. Plenty of room for everyone and very convenient to the beach and surrounding attractions. My only complaint was the ants in the kitchen when we got there. We kept everything in the fridge so that they wouldn't get into our food.
Thanks for your very positive review, Linda. I think you got confused about the meaning of the stars, though. A good review like this one ("good time;" "perfect for a family;" "plenty of room;" "convenient to beach") should have been 4 of 5 stars (I think this is what you intended), rather than 2 of 5 stars. I know the star system can be confusing (maybe two stars, meaning just one away from perfect was your interpretation?). Regarding the ants in the kitchen, my guess is that they came inside because of the heavy rain--we have never seen them when we are there. I suspect that because of the positive comments you have written in your review (in spite of the confusion about the number of stars) that you will book with us again. We will be looking forward to your next stay at our Bodega Bay home with its extraordinary location and its spectacular views of the ocean and Bay from almost every room of our house on the hill, overlooking Doran Beach Park, the ocean, Bay, and Bodega Head.
A weekend retreat
Beautiful property with amazing views.
We hit a stormy weekend and the house was very warm and had everything we needed.
Thanks for your 5-star review of our Bodega Bay home, a "beautiful property with amazing views" of ocean and Bay. Glad to hear that you were warm and cozy during the storm. Our fireplace in the living room, framed by expansive water views, adds to a homey feel. Hope you got to see the full moon set over the Bay, its image reflected on the dark waters. It is spectacular. Maybe the storm prevented this view at night on your trip this time. Maybe next time. I love that mysteriously beautiful view as much as the views of the sun sparkling on the silvery ocean in the afternoons. Thanks again for your review and your stay at our home.
Very best regards,
Beautiful views from the comforts of a well maintained home.
This house has breathtaking views! We really enjoyed our stay here. It’s close to everything. Would definitely rent again!
Thank you, Daniela, for your 5 star review. We look forward to your next stay at our home in Bodega Bay with its spectacular views of ocean and bay--where the Sonoma Wine Country meets the Pacific Ocean.
We loved our stay here. We found ourselves spending much of our time relaxing and staring out the window at the lovely bay/ocean views. The host is responsive, the home was quiet and comfortable, and we would definitely stay here again.
Delightful place and great host
This property is in an ideal spot with a beautiful view of Bodega Bay. It's cozy, comfortable and quaint even if not brand new. The owner/host was SUPER helpful as we fled the fires in Sonoma, offering to get us local info and allowing us to add our son, his newlywed wife and their dog to our party on short notice as they too were evacuated from their Sonoma honeymoon B&B. We're very grateful - it made the challenging situation enjoyable.
Thank you for excellent review. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at our Bodega Bay home with its spectacular views of Bodega Bay, the Pacific ocean, Bodega Head, and the Bodega Harbor marina. We were also pleased that we could help you and your family during the devastating fires 45 minutes away from our home. We were so fortunate that Bodega Bay and the beautiful coastal Sonoma county wine country surrounding Bodega Bay, and the rest of the Sonoma coast, were spared. Our hearts go out to those in Santa Rosa, Napa, and other areas where people lost their homes. You were great guests and we hope that you will book our Bodega Bay home again in the future. And congrats to the newlyweds!
