Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The views of Bodega Bay were fantastic, and we saw a bobcat making his rounds-seemed a bit sleepy though; the views of the bay at night was splendid, peaceful.

However, it would be great if the owners provided more games and puzzles; our kids would have loved that on the day it was too cold and windy to go to the beach-good thing they have a hot tub; it came in handy.

We will be back next year!

Perfect For Our Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

My wife arranged a small family reunion-perfect for the six of us and one kid. We enjoyed walking along Doran Beach; the water was too cold to swim, however, my grandson enjoyed wading with the shore birds. It was so pleasant to wake up to a grand view of the Pacific Ocean. We had planned to go to the wine country, but we decided to enjoy the views at the house instead. A great stay, we will definitely return soon to Zee Link!

Best views on the block!

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about the jaw-dropping views, there was always something different to look at. Enjoyed the gas BBQ on the deck-sunset was awesome over Bodega Head. It was great to be so close to the beach and to the club house-got a great meal and view there. The galley-style kitchen was a bit small, but we found what we needed to cook crabs, oysters, and other delights. You might want to bring robes and slippers as the house did not provide them.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderfully relaxing long weekend. The house was well equipped in the kitchen and the BBQ grill was spotless and ready to use. The view is spectacular and the location was perfect for someone who couldn't decide on a beach getaway or wine country...we got the best of both worlds. If you are looking for a quiet place to unwind, away from the hustle of a crowded tourist location......this was it. Gorgeous home and gorgeous views. I'll be returning.

The perfect place to de-compress

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the beautiful Zeelink home in late February. One look at the spectacular view and relaxation begins! The home was very comfortable, good beds, excellent fireplace, well stocked kitchen. A short walk to the nearby clubhouse provided wonderful meals when we arrived. A perfect stay!

Where do you live?

a little sub-par

  • 2 of 5

The views and location here are truly fantastic. However, there are some downsides that one should be aware of.

- For families, the number of towels provided is insufficient and there aren't any extras.

- Some of the linens and pillows are rather worn out and should be replaced.

- The downstairs bathroom is tiny with no place to put your toiletries. Plan on putting them in the bedroom. Really, the downstairs bathroom needs a redo.

- The sink downstairs sprays water out of the sink whenever turned on. The drain is also extremely slow.

- Furniture is functional but kind of a mishmash of older stuff.

- There were numerous burned-out light bulbs.

- General cleanliness is a little sub-par: carpet, dust, cobwebs, etc.

All of these minor annoyances stack up and diminish the overall experience here, unfortunately, and gives the impression this place is run on a shoestring budget.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your valuable and candid suggestions, First, here is a little background information about our home. Yes, as you point out, the views are "truly fantastic." In fact, there are only two vacation rental homes in the Harbour community that I am aware of that are this close to Bodega Bay with unobstructed white water views, views from Tomales Bay & Point Reys to Bodega Bay, Bodega Head & the harbour. The two main reasons we bought the house a couple of years ago were these views & that the house was designed in the 70's by one of our favorite architects, Carson Bowler. Carson Bowler designed homes up & down the Northern California Coast; he liked to use materials found locally. We liked the native stone used in the two fireplaces, clear heart redwood used on interior walls, as well as cedar shingles used to cover the exterior of the house. So, we set out to find furniture that complemented this house &/or were from that period. We have gone to a lot of time & expense to find solid wood furniture from that era, including butcher-block coffee table & end tables to match the galley kitchen counters & solid teak living room chairs as well as solid walnut & solid cherry head boards in two of the bedrooms. Now, on to your suggestions: Our management company, Bodega Bay Escapes, has a 5 star rating & would be more than happy to provide towels for any extra guests as well as extra towels if you need them-all that is needed is to call them, & they will be right over for any issues you might have. Full sets of new linens & pillows were purchased; old sets eliminated from use. A new faucet & drain were installed in the bathroom downstairs. However, we will keep the solid wood furniture that goes with the Carson Bowler style home of that era in the living & dining room; but, now, solid walnut headboard & matching nightstand replaced the old set. A new vanity light fixture replaced the old one. The cleaning staff did a thorough cleaning of the carpets as well as dusted & eliminated cobwebs. Again, thanks for your suggestions, we welcome you to come back & see the improvements. 2nd Bodega Bay Rental, north side of Bodega Bay Recently, we did a lot of work on our other vacation rental, Cliff Cottage-greatly enhanced the sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean from Bodega Head to the mouth of the Russian River, re-landscaped the front yard into a lovely garden, & installed: a forced-air gas furnace, and a gas fireplace insert.
