Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

The Bahia Retreat is a large, modern home located in the South Harbour area of Bodega Bay. Sweeping ocean views from Bodega Head to Pt. Reyes allow fantastic westerly views with amazing sunsets. Situated at the back of a court, the home backs to open space where deer, hare, quail and other birds and animals are often present. The home is also across the street from a trail that is a 1/2 mile walk down to a secluded cove along Bodega Bay.

The South Harbor of Bodega Bay is home to the Links at Bodega Harbor, a highly rated Robert Trent Jones designed course that offers some of the most scenic and challenging rounds in Northern California. The Bluewater Bistro is the excellent bar/restaurant located at the clubhouse, and offers lunch 7 days a week, dinner Thursday through Sunday and breakfast on weekends.

The home features an open 2,700 square foot floor plan with water views from the living room, dining room, all bedrooms, den and kitchen. There are designer touches throughout the home. The kitchen is well equipped, and includes a modern gas stove/convection oven, microwave, blender, Cuisinart, two coffee makers and cooking equipment typically required to cook full meals.

The dining area features a large designer table that seats 8 on chairs and benches, with a 'lazy susan' in the center for serving ease.

A deck off the kitchen and dining areas has a table with seating for four, and additional seats may be added for larger groups. There is a propane barbecue on the deck, and an additional Weber charcoal BBQ available if needed.

The large light-filled living room contains two oversize chairs and a couch, allowing relaxing reading, HDTV television viewing, listening to the stereo system or enjoying the wood burning fireplace. There is also a game table with four chairs. The game table and game chest hold a variety of games including cards, chess, checkers, cribbage, Scrabble, Yahtzee, Monopoly, Tripoly and others. There are DVD/VHS players and a large video library with a large library of selections. The televisions in the living room and den have the full Comcast premium package including HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, and other premium channels, and "On Demand" video. A high-power telescope is available to watch boats, marine mammals and wildlife.

The master bedroom is located on the upper floor of the home and looks directly across open space to the ocean. It features a king-sized bed, fireplace, flat screen television, walk-in closest, bath with separate jetted tub, two sinks and large shower.

The two additional bedrooms are located downstairs, each with sliding glass doors that open out to the open space at the rear and ocean views. Each has a queen size bed and a flat screen television. These bedrooms share the downstairs full bathroom. The second downstairs bedroom connects to the den, where there is also a convertible sofa that may be converted into a queen size bed (suitable for one adult or two small children).

The den features an HDTV television, DVD and VHS players, wet bar and mini-refrigerator, allowing a separate entertainment area. Along with the convertible sofa, there are two large and comfortable easy chairs. There is also a computer with a Comcast high-speed internet connection and a wifi modem. A five-person hot tub is located just outside the family room, offering incredible views of the Milky Way on clear moonless evenings and the sounds of sea lions and surf.

About Lee Lambert

We are long time Bay Area residents who love the ocean.

Lee Lambert purchased this house in 2004

Why Lee Lambert chose Bodega Bay

We purchased this home in Bodega Harbour first and foremost because we love the ocean. There are few places along the California Coast where you can purchase a modern home in a well kept community. Bodega Harbour offers a superb location, convenience to the North Bay cities and easy reach for weekenders in the Bay Area.

What makes this house unique

The house has a reputation as a modern and comfortable place to unwind. Many people who rent spend their time reading, walking beaches and relaxing. Others go inland 20 miles to the wineries and superb eateries of the North Bay, or golfing at the Bodega Harbour course (open to the public). The house has fantastic ocean views from the living and dining rooms and all bedrooms - it is easy to spend the day watching the ocean and the weather.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay was fantastic! We found everything we needed and more! Thank you for the winery and restaurant tips - you can be our reviewer anytime! The Bistro Des Copain restaurant in Occidental has quickly become one of our favorites anywhere. Your home was the perfect place to relax after our days of wine tasting and feasting. Thank you for everything and we hope to see you again!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the house. Beautiful views, lots of wildlife right out back, and a gorgeous view of the Milky Way from the hot tub. All the comforts of home and then some. Hope to return next year!

We really enjoyed our stay here. The house is bright and clean, with everything that we need. Amazing view. You just feel so relax here. Check in is easy and location is perfect. Close to lots of good restaurants and only a short drive to Bodega Harbor. Will definitely return.

What a wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

What a place! Beautiful home with stunning views. We had a great Labor Day weekend at the Bahia Retreat Vacation Home. Perfect house for a getaway. Everything you need for relaxing and entertaining at the house. Plenty of local restaurants. Great golf course in the community. Lee was very prompt with responses, recommendations, and accommodating our late check-in. We will be back!

Awesome house

  • 5 of 5

Some came to relax and some came to be active and this house was perfect for everyone's needs. My 87 year old parents read, watched the Warriors and Giants and played games, My husband and I golfed and hiked. The other couple went sight seeing and window shopping!!

Lee was quick to respond about a question we had and the house was well stocked. We would come back here in a New York Minute.
