Oceanside Retreat Bodega Harbour

Bedrooms 3
Space 2,800 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Media Room, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Hopefully the photos and location speak for themselves. If not, the more time you spend at our home the more you will come to love it. Located in an unbelievably quiet area away from golf course lawn mowers and constant traffic found elsewhere in the Harbour. The front deck overlooking the ocean is large enough for 6, and receives an incredible amount of sun. The rear patio area is secluded and has a Weber BBQ, spa and large enough for 6 to 8 to dine outdoors comfortably. There are 2 trails, 1 to the North and 1 to the South that take you directly to the beach. When you get there decide on whether hiking/swimming (kinda cool) or kite flying is your thing for the day. You will be thrilled to see all the different wildlife that comes with Harbour living.

The Bodega Harbour Golf course is one of the most spectacular anywhere. This challenging links course has dramatic views every step you take. Our pride and joy are the Home theater systems found in the Living Room and Media room downstairs. There are all new LCD sets in each bedroom, THX speakers in the living room, and the downstairs has a new 70" UHD 4k led, lcd television, and a THX sound system.

About Jeff Erkel

My wife and I have owned Oceanside Retreat for a decade now, and have enjoyed meeting many of you who have, and continue to choose our home for your vacation!

Why Jeff Erkel chose Bodega Bay

Nothing like the coast of California, with the crashing waves, wildlife, and clean air. (The golfing is really good too)

What makes this house unique

We enjoy hiking, driving to Tomales for oysters, or making sandwiches, grabbing a bottle of wine and heading to the beach for a picnic.

Large Comfortable Oceanside Home

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at Jeff's vacation rental literally across the road from the trail to the beach. Gorgeous views and lots of wildlife including the precious deers who hung out in front. When you open the downstairs locked sunroom door you can sit and dust off the sand before entering the main door. A large media room is to your right and a private room with a bathroom. Perfect for privacy for a single or couple as well as night owl. The upstairs has a huge living room with wall to wall bench seating overlooking the ocean. We did our computer work at that location while drinking coffee. The well equipped kitchen had everything for cooking and a large dining room table for 8. We also enjoyed the separate wing for our newlywed couple and our big room with separate jacuzzi tub and double shower. The beds were so comfortable as well as the large memory foam pillows. What a great home for a vacation!! Jeff was very easily reached by phone when we tried to access our rental emails for the address. The cell phone reception for my ATT was only one bar which is my fault so print your info. Inside the Internet is fabulous. Everything is fabulous. Large home for 3 couples. Just perfect!!

Beautiful home, great views, quiet and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

The owner was very responsive which made the planning easy for our family vacation. The home is beautiful and well-stocked. The view is wonderful - no homes between the house and the ocean! The deck is a lovely place to relax and is protected from the wind. The delightfully sandy beach is only a few minutes walk down the beautiful, colorful (flower-lined) ravine. This is a great place for a family vacation!!

Beautiful Property with Views

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for my weekend getaway. Jeff made the process easy and stress-free. We loved the open floor plan with panoramic views. The home was clean had everything we needed and more. So much better than staying in a hotel. This was my first experience with VRBO and I was very impressed with how well the owner accommodated us. Hopefully I will have the pleasure of staying at this property again soon.
