Why BBBVR chose Sereno del Mar

It's private location and Panoramic Pacific Ocean views.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A Perfect Stay at the Crows Nest at Bodega Bay!

This March five lady friends and I had the good fortune to come across the Crows Nest on VRBO. From the first time I spoke with Mia Jampolsky the owner, to the moment we had to say goodbye to her lovely hideaway perched above the Pacific Ocean, it was an effortless and most memorable experience. From every window in the huge house we had panoramic views of the ocean, beautiful hills and expansive fields complete with grazing cows and curious deer. The home, which is close to many activities, is very private and comfortable so we were content to stay tucked away, relax, eat, laugh and take in the view. It was the perfect choice for our annual reunion and I would recommend the Crows Nest to anyone looking for an unforgettable get-away at a great value.

Our family loves Crow Nest!

  • 5 of 5

Spending Christmas at Crows Nest was so much fun and was so close to the beach. The home was extremely comfortable like we were at home and if you have dogs it's a perfect place to bring them. Bodega Best Vacation Rentals has great customer service also. We'll be back some day for sure!

Pet friendly but dirty

  • 2 of 5

We were very grateful to have a place to come during the fire that was pet friendly. However, The house was obviously neglected and poorly looked after. Mouse droppings in drawers and cabinets upstairs and downstairs, on plates. filthy windows which I cleaned. Gate in front broken and dogs got out. No screens on windows letting wasps and flys in. Supplies not checked, old empty coffee canisters in cabinet.. Carpets original and so dirty and pet stained. Fleas. It's one thing to be a pet-friendly place but it should also be human friendly as well.

Our daughter got married and we wanted a weekend home for friends and family. Crows nest fit the bill perfectly ! The home was large enough to accommodate us all. Though a little dated everything was clean and well appointed. The reservation was easy to obtain with wonderful instructions ! We would love to return thank you Mia

Nice house with excellent views of the water! Stayed at Crow's Nest for 3 nights with 9 women and lots of crafting supplies. We were able to spread out and still fit comfortably. The loft was a good place to stretch out and read a book. If weather permits, sit outside in the patio, or take a walk to Portuguese Beach. The house provides a lot of natural sunlight. All of the women enjoyed themselves and had a great time. I would recommend renting this home and the management company is quick to respond and very helpful. I appreciate their willingness to go the extra mile to make sure you stay is pleasant, thank you Mia and all of your staff!

Lovely, spacious home with views!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for the weekend and had a marvelous time! I wanted a quick getaway from the SF Bay area for family bonding time with our two young adult children (20-23), brother in law, and dog. It was a really good decision and the Crow's Nest delivered the space that we needed. We are ATT cell subscribers so our phones didn't work (Verizon works here) -- I didn't worry too much because they had a landline that was available and also internet if we really had to connect with the outside world. We didn't miss the phones but make sure that you have the addresses and directions where you want to go because reception on the road is spotty. We brought our dog, Max, who was just as happy as we were. There's a lot of room to spread out, tv in the evening (bring your own DVDs), back yard to play Frisbee, watch the deer or occasional fox that strolled by, and view of the water! Town was just 6 minutes away with a few restaurants and sights from the movie, The Birds. This is a good jumping off point to explore Point Reyes, Bodega Bay, Jenner, Guerneville, Sea Ranch and back.

The Family Nest

  • 5 of 5

From Grandkids to Grand Parents we all had a great time for a week. Ten Family members were able to be together or have space as necessary. The views were great. Having the Deer, fox and quail visiting every day was very special.

The private patio provided both young grandkids and our small dog a protected space.

And yes, even though we all were on vacation there was some work that was necessary and the broadband performance did not disappoint.

We absolutely will come back and we recommend the house to everyone.
