About Bodega Bay 'BEST' Vacation Rentals

My husband Mike and I were very lucky to purchase our beautiful Oceanfont home 'Casa Bella' in (SDM) Sereno Del Mar. We live in West Sebastopol just 15 minutes from the beach, so close that we can enjoy our home with family and friends. A sign by 'Casa Bella's' front door reads: 'You Never Know How Many Friends You Have Until You Own A Beach House'...

Mia's Dad & business partners developed SDM in the mid 60's when she was a little girl. I have always loved this area and remember when there were no homes here! An opportunity came up in 2001 with another income property, in a 1031 Tax Exchange and when we knew we could do a vacation rental v.s. a long term rental, that was it!

Now it has become a big business for Mike and I managing about 25 vacation rentals here in BEAUTIFUL Bodega Bay. We are Bodega Bay 'BEST' Vacation Rentals. Please stop by our local office and say hello while visiting here in paradise. We are located at 1580 Eastshore Road, Suite D, Bodega Bay, CA 94923. (707) 377-4250

We love what we do and our guest do too, as we have had many returnees over the past 12 years. So thanks to ALL of you who have made this vision become a true passion for us. We truly enjoy working with our guests and the lovely homes (all with ocean views!) we so proudly manage for our clients.

All the Best,

Mia & Mike Jampolsky

Great location, great views, calming energetically

  • 5 of 5

We use the location as a retreat place for business planning sessions. The quite remote nature of the place is conducive to the needs of our team. The home is a great living space that also provides several hang out spots to enjoy the compound.

Spectacular Sunset

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The location is fabulous and the sunsets are spectacular. The house is well stocked with plenty of linens, dishes, etc. One thing is the upstairs gets really hot if you have a fire and we could not turn on the upstairs fan because the batteries in the remote were dead. We searched but could not find any batteries for the remote. If you can please replace the batteries in the remote that would be great for the next quests and have some on hand in the house. We visit Bodega Bay every year at least once or twice and this is a house we would love to stay in again! Thanks again for sharing your home with us.

Above and beyond!

  • 5 of 5

This stay was the 3rd time we used BBBVR...they really are THE BEST! We have always had great experiences when we rent through BBBVR, but this last visit they really went beyond my expectations. I absentmindedly left my clothes in one of the dressers and realized this when I got home. I called the office the next morning explaining my dilemma and was reassured that I was not the first person to ever do this and they would ship my clothes to me. I was not expecting them to offer to do that when I called. As far as the property...WOW! Casa Bella has gorgeous views of the ocean and a convenient walk to the beach. We loved watching the sunset every evening. We definitely want to come back again!

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We so loved Casa Bella! The ocean front views are awesome; a small stroll to Portuguese Beach which is, at times, a private beach. The courtyard out front was lovely as well. The loft is so cozy with amazing views of the ocean and the owners have even provided The Birds for some evening entertainment. The property managers were so helpful and gracious. We will definitely return as our whole family had such a relaxing experience...truly good for the soul!

The perfect escape!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house so much!!! It is so beautifully decorated and so much thought and care has gone into every room. The amazing views and the cozy surroundings made this the perfect place for my mom and I to escape to. We spent a lot of time in the front window watching for whales! We did see some too. Our other favorite spot was the upstairs loft with beautiful couches. You can see the ocean and it's so beautiful up there. We cannot wait to come back again and again.

Thank you so much! What a great place.
