'Harbor Cutie' has been enjoyed immensely by our family during weekends and the holidays. Built in 2000 with 3 bedrooms / 2 baths, this retreat (sleeps 6-8) is centrally located in the coastal town of Bodega Bay. It has a panoramic bay view directly in front of the house. Beaches are within 5 minutes drive or less away.

This charming escape is across the street to Porto Bodega Marina where you can purchase fresh locally caught seafood or book fishing, crabbing, and GIANT Squid trips depending on the season. Multiple excellent restaurants, coffee shops, grocery stores, and art galleries are also within easy walking distance or a short drive away.

We are also only minutes from beautiful Bodega Head, the Bodega Marine Lab, Salmon Creek and Doran beaches. Step over to the Bay for Kayaking, Clamming (low tide only) or just to explore the bay to get your feet wet! Schedule Boat trips, Kayaking trips, and Horseback riding to the beach and possibly walk to your adventure from our house. Or you may want to try a moderate hike to Salmon Creek beach accessible from our property.

Our retreat has modern furnishing, most amenities of a home away from home, portable child bed/crib, plasma TVs, internet access, premium cable channels, and books, as well as toys/ video games for the children and adults. Relax with a glass of wine on the front deck while watching passing boats as well as numerous unique birds. This is truly a superb location for those who enjoy being closer to the water...

Master bedroom has a king size bed and a twin sleeper sofa. It has its own bathroom.

The second bedroom has a queen size bed and the third bedroom has 2 twin beds along with 2 additional mattresses underneath of each twin bed.

Plenty of *parking spaces, basketball, and play areas on the 2,500 plus square feet of driveway with bay view. The whole yard is securely enclosed by 3 feet high, 156 feet wide fence and have optional locks which makes it very safe for family with small children. You and your little ones will have a BLAST with so much fun, space, views and fresh air!

About Jodie

We purchased 'Harbor Cutie' when it was just a house with open land and overgrown weeds. In addition, there were huge eucalyptus trees which had broken branches that kept on falling down every time there was a bit of wind. But the panoramic bay view and LOCATION sealed the deal!

For the safety of our children, we removed the old trees, paved the front yard, and installed the surrounding fence. We also installed over 600 square feet of deck with a gazebo and pergola along with benches for the family to enjoy the outdoor in comfort.

We love it here because of the view, the beach and because of the relaxed feeling we got every time we come here. From inside the house looking out, we can see the soothing water and the coming and going of the tides and of fisherman boats every day which makes 'Harbor Cutie' a truly unique location!

This is also the place where my children first explored nature, learned to ride their bikes without training wheels and helped mommy dig for soft shell and horseneck clams! My son tells me 'Habor Cutie' reminds him of 'The Little House' by Virgina Lee Burton. This house is special and will survive through the generations and she 'may never be sold for gold or silver'!

(Well, we'll have to see about that!) :-)

Jodie purchased this house in 2007

Why Jodie chose Sonoma County

The bay and it's varying shores are right across the house. Salmon creek beach is a accessible from the rear of house thru campgrounds and is a vigorous 20 minutes nice scenic hike thru dune shortcuts. Longer if you follow mostly paved roads with directions it is about a 30-40 minutes leisurely walk if you do not accidentally stray from path like inadvertently getting on horse trail etc. Attention to landmarks are needed to return home more quickly and some handwritten tips are in guest book at house. It is more meant to be an adventure and most people can handle it including my kids when they were 4-5 years old and the grandparents in their late 50s. The end result as you get closer and closer to the crashing waves are worth it especially if you go in morning before winds pick up. Many beaches are less than 5-10 minute drive from home such as the above salmon creek beach, bodega head bluffs and beach, doran state beach which requires payment or a beach pass which we have at house. Many other beaches are just a bit further away on highway 1, but the ones close by are probably best each with their own unique characteristics.

What makes this house unique

Large usable outdoor space for children to play safely and a huge 600 square feet deck to have a family meal while taking in the panoramic bay views. Walking distance to many restaurants, fishing trip departures located right across the street as well as hiking to many trails and beaches from our home.

Extremely satisfied and very happy to have found and stayed at Harbor Cutie!

  • 5 of 5

Harbor Cutie is highly recommended if you are looking for a place in Bodega Bay. My daughter was getting married in Secret Gardens and it worked out perfectly for us as it was walking distance to the venue. It is very spacious, clean and had amenities that we needed. Jodie, the owner was very responsive and a pleasure to do business with it. Thank you for asking for my feedback. I'd stay there again and again and highly recommend.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Harbor Cutie was terrific - great location (but nice that it was off the main highway) and the house was was stocked with basic supplies and was very comfortable. Water is directly across the street, just like in the photos! We enjoyed all the kids toys and the safe, fenced in yard. Having a gas fireplace was neat too! Jodie was great at communicating with us as well. A wonderful stay!

Beautiful View

My family and I had a great time during our stay 7/3/17-7/10/17. The kids especially liked the outdoor play area. We all shot some hoops! The house is roomy and clean. I would definitely recommend the "Harbor Cutie".
