Coming to the Sonoma Coast every year for the past 25 years I dreamed of someday calling this amazing area home. In 2004 I decided it was time to focus on my dream. So after watching the area real estate listings diligently for the next 7 years (for just the right fit) it finally happened . Christmas Eve 2010 we decided to pack up the dog and take a road trip to check out the home as soon as it was listed. It was in total disrepair from years of neglect. The outside of the house from the roof down was rotten. The inside was better, but required much work. I loved the layout and location of the home. I have always loved interior design and decorating in addition to any kind of DIY activities (both structural and creative)...and decided to accept the challenge. Five years of work and a lot of weekends later... The Bay View is now a cozy coastal retreat. The home has given me a place to both be creative and relax while escaping the Sacramento Valley heat. It has been a true labor of love.
Janice purchased this House in 2011
Why Janice chose Bodega Bay
We love the Sonomoa Coast! When we found the Bay View House (in spite of its condition at the time) we fell in love with the convenient central location and the open floor plan that enables you to visit and enjoy the view from the entire living area. The house is just a few minutes from town and restaurants, the Sonoma Coast Beaches and Bodega Head (our favorite place to go) We also loved the large 1/4 acre fenced yard and of course the hillside peek-a-boo view of the bay that is framed by trees and a small valley (providing constant changing scenery, including night time activity of boats returning from sea). So many things close by (yet the location is peaceful): Within a few minutes are restaurants, trails, Bodega Bay, Bodega Head (whale watching), Bodega Habour Golf Course, Porto Bodega (charter boats), Chanslor Ranch (ocean view horseback rides), Doran Beach, and entrance to the beautiful Sonoma Coast State Park (comprised of 15 miles of sandy beaches). Getting to the beach or bayside is a 20-30 minute walk (3 minute drive). The Children’s Bell Tower, Coastal Prairie Trail to Salmon Creek Beach, and Bodega Dunes are also only a few minute walk from the house.
What makes this House unique
Large 1/4 acre fully fenced yard (a rarity at the coast). One of our favorite features was a pleasant surprise...the temperature/weather relative to the position of the home! Bay View is located in a micro-climate (known as the sun belt) which is often clear even when the coast and bay are foggy. Additionally, the position of the home allows the yard protection from the chilly ocean winds. The yard is often sunny, and the temperature can vary 10-20 degrees from the front to the back of the house! The sun heats the home through the large windows on chilly days!...But if it is too warm, simply open the front windows and the ocean breezes quickly cool the home. Eco-friendly heating and cooling! We often escape the fog banks, but are still close enough to hear the ocean waves and sea lions play in the distance in the evening.

Everything you need in an amazing well thought out VRBO
We loved both bedrooms and 2 separate baths. The Hardwood floors, open floor plan, updated appliances, kitchen and bathrooms earned 5 stars. The neighborhood was great, centrally located with some of the best Mexican food I have had within easy walking distance. The backyard was huge, fenced with a fire ring, BBQ, beautiful deck with great views and a viewing garden with lots of grass for my two dogs. Thank you so much for allowing dogs! Our dogs are part of our family and your willingness to allow them to stay with us is truly appreciated. We will always check this property first when staying on the Sonoma coast.
Thanks for the great review. So glad you enjoyed our location, house and large yard. Surprised you didn't mention the spa...that is usually everyone's first comment about the yard. LOL. We love dogs and welcome well behaved dogs and considerate pet owners. We make sure our home is always clean for the comfort of pet owners and non-pet owners alike! Thanks again!
Fantastic house and yard
We had a great time. Janice has thought of everything you might need and makes it so easy to have a great time. Great place for our small dogs too.
Thank you for your kind words. Our guests’ comfort is our top priority. We look forward to your return.
Favorite Place To Stay in Bodega Bay!
I have been traveling to Bodega Bay frequently for the past 25 years. The last 6 years I have stayed at the Bay View House every time. It is by far my favorite place to stay on the Sonoma Coast. The location is perfect (convenient yet peaceful), beautifully decorated, extremely well stocked, and so many extra special touches you don’t normally see in vacation rentals. Janice has literally thought of everything to make your vacation relaxing and worry-free! The hot tub is awesome. It is true that often when the coast is foggy the large back yard at this gem is sunny, cozy and protected from any harsh cold ocean winds. The owner found a special place and it is apparent tons of love and care went into the renovation of this great coastal getaway. I plan to make this my home away from home on the coast as long as they Bay View is available to rent! You won’t be sorry if you choose this home. The owner is helpful and very responsive.
Thanks! We always look forward to your return to Bay View. We always say return guests are our greatest compliment!
Can't wait to come back
Everything was perfect, the house was cozy and well equipped. Even comes with dog items!! Love it!
Thanks! Glad you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to your return. Return guests are our biggest compliment!
Great accomodations and location
With 3 sleeping areas, a huge kitchen, an awesome sun room and a large back yard with a view, this was the perfect spot for our family of four to enjoy a getaway in Bodega Bay. It's centrally located and minutes away from all the Bodega Bay restaurants and attractions, but also on the North end of town for easy exit to Sonoma Coast beaches and other destinations like Jenner and Fort Ross. After a long day of outdoor activity, we enjoyed the multiple streaming media subscriptions, huge sectional with recliners and the cozy heat from the gas stove. We are definitely planning a return visit.
Thanks Kenji! So glad you enjoyed the house and the location. We look forward to your return.
Comfortable and Conveniently Located
This home was comfortable and Janice was easy to work with and always answered any questions that we had immediately. Our dog enjoyed the back yard and walking on the Coastal Prairie path near the home. We viewed the Geminid Meteor showers and the International Space Station from the great deck during our stay in December.
The home is lovely inside with a kitchen that has everything that we needed to prepare many of our meals.
The reason that I did not rate this home 5 stars is that we missed not being able to watch live TV. The Roku system was not familiar to us and we did not understand how to work with that system. We did discover that we could view any programs that we were recording on our home Xfinity on our iPads.
We look forward to visiting again this summer.
Thanks Katherine! Glad you enjoyed your stay enough to immediately book another week return stay as soon as you returned home! Surprised you are our first 4 star review! We wish you would of asked about the TV during your stay and we could of instructed you on how to watch 1000’s of options at your convenience. We have Roku, Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Prime, and several cable streamed and some live channels including SHowtime, HBO, FX, USA, ESPN and Many other regular and sports channels. Most guests love the option of watching programs on demand on their own schedule when they relax after a day of exploring (instead of live TV at scheduled times).We also provide an hdmi cable for the option of watching your own programming on our 55 inch LED TV. When you return this summer we will walk you through making the most of your entertainment viewing! You might decide to join the world of streaming TV watchers once you discover the benefits!
Bay View sits on a fully fenced 1/4 acre overlooking Bodega Bay. The home is centrally located at the north end of the town of Bodega Bay, putting it less than 5 minutes from the restaurants and shops, bay shore, Bodega Dunes, the Sonoma Coast beaches, Bodega Head (for whale watching) and several hiking trails. Our convenient location puts you in the heart of all the activities that the Sonoma Coast has to offer... while offering a private, cozy & well appointed home to relax at the end of your day of exploring. Convenient yet peaceful location!
