Property description

Enjoy ocean views, gorgeous sunsets, and strolls to the nearby beaches. Our beach house is located 3 miles north of Bodega Bay in a quiet, friendly community called Carmet. It has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a large kitchen, a living room with a wood burning stove, a newly added family room with bar and large flat screen TV perfect for watching Sunday football. It has both travertine and hardwood floors, a large deck and a huge yard. The new deck extends the length of the house and has a raised hot tub to soak in as you enjoy the sunset. The living room, dining room, and kitchen have large windows with ocean views. Walk in either direction for 3 to 5 minutes to enjoy two great beaches. A short drive to the town of Bodega provides excellent dining – Lucas Wharf and The Tides are two favorites. Wine tasting, horseback riding, golf, spa, and fishing are all minutes away. The quaint town of Occidental is only a 15-minute scenic drive away for antique and gift shopping. The amazing River's End restaurant in Jenner is a short 15 minute drive North. Nearby Goat Rock State Park at the mouth of Russian River is a great place for seal watching during the 'pupping season' and rock climbing as well. The house has 1 queen bed, 1 full bed, 1 bunk bed with full size bed on the bottom, 1 twin bed, 4 color TVs, 3 DVD players, and a stereo. For families with children there are 2 pack-n-plays for babies, 2 booster seats, and lots of toys and videos. Comfortably sleeps two families.

We want to share our home with families looking to spend quiet time at the beach together. Please no parties or large groups. The house is located in a quiet, family friendly neighborhood and is on a sensitive septic system.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: We live in Novato, CA about 1 hour from Bodega Bay. We bought our beach house just before our first son was born. We now have 3 boys and a yellow lab, 2 cats, and 3 fish. We have enjoyed taking our family out to the beach for the past 13 years and have made countless, precious memories there! With the boys activities getting more numerous and keeping us away from the beach more than we'd like, we have decided to share our beach house with other families. We hope you will enjoy your time there as much as we have!

Why the Owner Chose Bodega Bay, CA, USA:
When we considered buying a vacation home, Bodega was appealing because we LOVE the beach and we LOVE to fish! There is nothing my boys love more than being out on the boat with their dad. This property was perfect because it has a large fenced in yard that kept our children safe when they were young and keeps our lab safe now. We can walk to three amazing beaches in less than 5 minutes from the house. There are many amazing restaurants in the area as well as golf, spas, and wine tasting. Even if the weather is foggy or rainy, sitting inside in front of the fire reading a book or watching a family movie is a welcome break from the hectic day-to-day routine.
