Enter this home and expect to be amazed by the immense power and beauty of the ocean. This home is the closest you can get to the sandy beach (of all rental homes offered in Bodega Harbour development.) I suggest the first thing you do upon entering this home is recline in one of the down filled lounge chairs that are perched in the front bay window over looking the entire coastline, from Point Reyes to Bodega Head. Close your eyes, take a deep breath, then open your eyes and look out towards the horizon. You will feel as though you are floating on water as you sink deeper into the down filled cushion that is keeping you comfy, while the warmth of the sun shines down upon you. If you are wearing shorts you may just catch a tan (summer or winter). Or possibly you will see the spouts from a migrating whale. This is where the magic of Bodega begins. In fact, you will enjoy ocean views from every room in this comfortable contemporary home. (This home sits on the front side of exclusive Gull Drive loop, you won't be looking over rooftops to an ocean view from this house, all views are unobstructed, just you and the ocean here.) Staying here you will feel like you have spent your entire vacation on the ocean, regardless of whether you actually venture out the front door and put you toes in the sand. The setting is so relaxing that each day will feel as though you have spent three days here.
Consider a personal chef for dinner or create your own meals in the chef kitchen. Cooking or dining, you and your guests can enjoy your meal from the dining room (complete with wood burning fireplace and sitting area) while watching the sun set upon Bodega Head. Watch your family or friends walk on the beach after dinner. Or take them out tide pooling before dessert is served.
The back of the house faces the 9th hole and has a large deck complete with fire pit and lounge chairs. Golfers can play the first 9 holes, step into the house for lunch, refreshments and a visit, and continue on the back 9. The 18 hole Scottish links course has breathtaking views and cannot be missed!
Kids and adults both will enjoy the dining facility and pro shop just steps away from the house at the nearby club house. BEAUTIFUL hiking trails abound! If you are an equestrian, Chancelor Ranch is a short drive once there you and your guests can take a trail ride into the mountains or down to the beach. Kayaking opportunities are endless and guided tours are available nearby. Limo service from Airports and for wine country excursions available upon request. There is much to do if you are interested, or nothing to be done at all, if this is what you prefer. However you choose to relax, Chateau Relax-o lives up to it's name.....just relax.....
If it is a romantic weekend, special occasion, or you are just looking for a place to reconnect with self, family, friends and nature, look no further, this is your place! Private in house masseuse also available upon request. A babysitter may be able to be arranged based on availability.

Why Liz Green chose Bodega Bay
We love the ocean and met on the ocean 20 years ago. Later we purchased this house as a private vacation home for our growing family We've owned the home for 15 years and the house has never been offered for rent before. We use it less now and welcome you to enjoy it as much as we do.The house sits in an idea location, ocean front and a 5 minute walk to the clubhouse where there is fine dining and golf amenities. The golf course is spectacular, with phenomenal views and a challenging course. The back side of the house views the 9th hole so you can stop in the house for lunch before completing the back nine. The front of the house has a 180 degree view of the ocean. You can settle in and read a good book while looking up occasionally to catch a glimpse of a whales spout up off the waters surface or if you are more adventurous kayak out of Tomales Bay and maybe see one up close and personal. Lots of hiking, biking,long walks,diverse trails,bird watching etc... If you ever want to leave the beach it is only a 30 minute car ride to many winery properties and tasting rooms. When you are done with your day you can escape once again to the peace and serenity of this location. The beach is private at our end of Bodega Harbour, so the crowds are non existent. My favorite time of year (other than anytime of year) is in the winter where I relax in the living room bay window area and watch the waves pound the surf during a raging winter storm. Being in Bodega Bay, with all of its micro climates one can easily experience a warm summer like day and a stormy winter day all within a 24 hour time frame in the winter. There's always a good time of year to be here.
What makes this House unique
This home is located on the oceanfront side of exclusive Gull Drive loop and has 180 degree unobstructed white water views from Point Reyes to Bodega Head. You won't be looking over rooftops to your ocean view from this house. Just staying in the house is a relaxing vacation in itself. But, if you are the adventurous type there is soooo much to do.Hiking,exploring,fishing,kayaking,whale watching,biking,sand dune surfing,etc. Anyone can enjoy staying here age 0 to100! Serve yourself and guests coffee in the morning and some can sit in the living room (or almost any room) and view the ocean while watching the rest of your party walk out oceanfront and enjoy their beverage with their toes in the sand or white water of the crashing waves! In the evening enjoy the gourmet kitchen and sweeping ocean views from the dining room table while the fire roars (one of 5 fore places in the house) and you and your guest enjoy a glass of wine. Sit peacefully in the library /office and write that great novel that has been calling you. All the while enjoying the sweeping ocean views from your desk. In the evening enjoy relaxing by one of the many fire places in this house; possibly, after enjoying a relaxing dip in the enormous roman tile tub in the master bedroom. If it is a romantic weekend you are looking for....look no further.....this is your place! There are private decks off every room in the house and a recreation room on the garage level complete with TV, ping pong table and a miniature kids pool table. And many boogie boards,balls and kites to play with.

Great Location, Well-Kept Home, Lots of Light and Gorgeous Views, Plenty of Space!
This home and Bodega Bay are a great destination for a getaway retreat. There is plenty of space in the house and everything is well maintained.
The stereo equipment was not really working but we were fine without. Home owner was always available if we had a question. Our entire group was very happy with this home.
I’m so glad you had a great time at Chateau Relaxo in Bodega Bay, CA. I will have to place a visible note on the blue tooth speakers so guests know how to use them. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. We look forward to welcoming you back again. Kind Regards, Liz
Our stay was fantastic! The house is spacious, well equipped, comfortable and clean -an incredible location with incredible views. The Green's were terrific hosts - very helpful and available. We had a wonderful family reunion for the holidays!!
Perfect location! An amazing property!
The home is comfortable, light and bright! An amazing view of the ocean in pretty much every room in the house. Clean and well stocked. Beds are very comfortable and plenty of room for 2 or more with everyone having plenty of space and privacy when needed. Walking the beach is just beautiful and right out the front door. We also liked to walk the 2+ mile loop around the neighborhood for a more challenging, but just as beautiful walk.
I would recommend this property to anyone wanting a special but comfortable stay!
The most perfect retreat.
- Great views, location, and short walk to the beach.
- Comfortable living/family room furniture, well maintained, and clean.
- Enjoyed the fully stocked kitchen and appliances.
- Children's room would better suit our needs if set up for adults.
- A hot tub would thoroughly be enjoyed.
- Appreciated the Owner being readily available and very accommodating.
- Would highly recommend this home and owner!
We went for a quiet ladies weekend and the amenities did not disappoint. The home is gorgeous, the access to the beach is incredible, the kitchen was perfect for a leisurely dinner while we enjoyed in breathtaking sunset. Thank you, Liz, for your amazing care and attention to detail. We enjoyed every last minute and hated leaving! Thank you!!
Beautiful Home and View - Great Girls weekend
We had 8 women in our 40s meet up at Chateau Relax-O for a girls weekend. The house has amazing views and the rooms are all nice. The best part is the front living room overlooking the ocean. There is a lot of seating so we could all hang out together. A few steps above that is the TV room, also with big comfy sofas.
The only thing I would caution is if you plan to sleep on one of the "sleeping mats." I hate sharing a bed so I slept on one the first night but is was really uncomfortable (hard and thin so like sleeping on the floor). As a result, I did share a bed the following night because I wanted to remain in the master bedroom (nicest room). The bed was very comfortable.
We hired a private chef to cook for us on Sat. night and that went well. The kitchen had everything we needed but I suggest getting dinner size plates that aren't plastic - it kind of cheapened the private chef experience. Also, note that the BBQ is somewhat small for 8 people (I think 2 burners) so we had to cook our Fri dinner in batches.
Overall, we had a great stay and wonderful, relaxing time catching up with one another. That was our main goal and this is a wonderful house for staying in. We visited Sebastapol to check out the local area and soon realized we would have been better off if we hadn't left the house for the day.
Hi Tracy, So happy you had an awesome time at Chateau RelaxO and Bodega Bay. Thanks for the suggestions. A larger,double rack BBQ has now been put in place and I'm sorry you missed locating the ceramic plates. I will make sure the cleaning crew puts them on a more visible shelf. The melamine plates are for alfresco dining or if guests want to picnic on the beach.
wine tasting, artisan cheese tasting, whale watching, sand dune surfing, art and crab and art festivals, local farm shopping, deep sea salmon fishing, private chef and limo. service available upon request. Fire work show on week of July 4th !
