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

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.

Casa Bella is a perfect ocean front retreat. Great location to town, amazing views, fun walk to Portuguese Beach. The house had everything we could possibly need. We will definitely plan another trip to Casa Bella.

Our birthday weekend in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The location was excellent, but this experience was more than that. It was the sound of the surf, watching the sunset over the Pacific Ocean while sitting on the back porch. It was how you felt while you were there: safe and cozy. The sitting area was peaceful and serene. The inside of the house was clean and roomy, and we will be back again! The Rental Office staff was outstanding!

Location, location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 spent Thanksgiving week. The location is unbeatable! Sitting and watching the ocean was such a pleasure, and the beach is so close. The home was extremely well stocked, even including chap sticks. It's also beautifully furnished. Unusual layout, but very usable. Loved that the TV was in the loft. Beds are very comfortable. We golfed 3 days and our grandson is into "boulder" climbing and the one of the best sites in the state is just 15 minutes up Highway 1. We also really enjoyed the large flock of quail that "grazed" right outside our window.

The Pacific Ocean at your doorstep

  • 5 of 5

Four friends were at Casa Bella for only two nights. Sigh. Wished we had time to stay longer. The house is well cared for with good common areas as well as places where people could have alone time, too. The Pacific is across the 101 and down steep steps or you can drive up the highway a short distance and park along the road at beach level. It rained and was cloudy while we were there so we didn't get to enjoy the lovely outdoor entertainment area with comfy chairs and a Weber grill. The sun did come out as we were leaving so we could see the house would be sunny all day with lots of windows to bring in light. The only (somewhat) negative is one bedroom is accessed by walking through the garage or through one of the other bedrooms. It appears to be a late addition to the house and doesn't have a hallway to it. It was lovely with its own patio so was worth walking through the garage. There is also a washer and dryer if needed. We all enjoyed seeing the artwork in the house. This is a home which we hope to come back to!

Bodega Bay Best Vacations Rentals is "THE BEST"

  • 5 of 5

I've had the pleasure of staying at Casa Bella on numerous occasions over the past 10 years and it always exceeds my expectations. My recent visit was, again, over-the-top. My mother remarked "I have never been in a rental home that is so clean"! The beds are so comfortable you could stay there all day, but the beach is only a short walk from the house, so it would make that almost impossible. Mia and Mike are gracious, fun, and are always at the ready to help if anything comes up. I would highly recommend staying at Casa Bella, or any other of their properties, as they all hold the same quality of service and amenities. Thank you Mia for letting us share your beautiful home - see you next time!!!
