About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible Bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

Make 'Bayscape', our modern 3 bedroom, 2 bath second house your vacation home. The house sleeps 6 comfortably with a king size bed in the master suite, a queen size bed in one guest room and 2 twin beds in the second guest room. There is also a queen size hideabed in the living room where 2 additional people can sleep.

The livingroom, dining room and kitchen are all fully equipped. There is cable television and wireless high-speed internet service.

There are ocean and golf course views from every room and a large hot tub outside the master bedroom suite where you can view the stars at night.

BEST BEACH access from anywhere in the harbor. It is a short 4 to 5 minute walk down hill on a pave path that starts right in front of the house! The other 2 paths to the beach in the development are steep and unpaved.

This is a sandy beach that runs for over 2 miles out to the Bodega Head. At low tide, a short walk south along the beach will take you to interesting rock formations and tide pools. Fun for kids of all ages.

Play golf, ride horses in the dunes, go deep sea fishing, take walks on the beach or just sit in the living room with a fire in the fireplace and a good book and watch the waves break on the shore. One hour north of the San Francisco Golden Gate bridge, 400 yards from the ocean waves and on the first tee of a Robert Trent Jones golf course, what more could you need for a great vacation.

Bodega Bay is just west of Napa/Sonoma, northern California's famous wine country. Visit Calistoga for a mud bath or Freestone for an excellent Japanese massage. Explore the northern California coast with day trips from this unique little fishing harbour where Alfred Hitchcock filmed 'The Birds'. Bodega Head is a great location for an easy hike along the edge of the rugged cliffs of the Pacific Ocean ( see photo we got of a recent hike above). On our last hike we spotted 4 whales.

NOTE: There is a small playground within a few hundred yards of our house, perfect for young children complete with swings and a climbing structure!! Great entertainment for grandchildren. We also have beach toys and some house toys like dolls and Legos your children are welcome to use.

Be sure to take the kids tide pooling. They'll love it.

About Bodega Bay & Beyond

Jane and I (Bernie) are retired and have owned our Bodega home since 1999. We have made many exciting exchanges over the years and everyone has taken very good care of our place. In October, 2012 we decided to try offering the house on a limited 'weekend rental' basis. So far the parties renting our house have been respectful of it and we hope everyone that considered renting to will do the same.

Bodega Bay & Beyond purchased this house in 1999

Beautiful Beautiful Beautiful !

  • 5 of 5

Our Christmas stay was perfect in every way! Rainstorms, sunshine, sitting on the couch in the living room and hearing the waves crash into the beach all made for the perfect Holiday. Your home is so warm and inviting. Loved how every window looks out on the beautiful scenery. The kitchen has every amenity with enough room for 5 cooks at once! Thank you, can't wait to return!

Thanksgiving memories stay strong

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this lovely warm home, where the owners clearly enjoy the space themselves are thoughtful and generous in their sharing of their home and everything within it.

We had no trouble creating a complete Thanksgiving with the kitchen fully stocked with tools. We enjoyed sitting on the deck, and even watched a bobcat meander around the golf course while there! We enjoyed the quilts, feeling a sense of home away that isn't always so easy.

This house has a hot tub which is a lovely treat after a long walk along the shore where you can watch the most amazing sunsets, or terrific runs along the trails all around the area. We had a passionate biker, a runner, surfer and children who all really enjoyed this wonderful place. Thank you very much for such a wonderful experience.

Awesome stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful home. The house had everything we needed - well outfitted kitchen, plenty of extra towels and blankets, presto logs for the fireplace and even binoculars for looking at the gorgeous scenery.

Wonderful experience for my family and I

  • 5 of 5

I rented this home as a surprise long weekend getaway for my mom's 60th birthday. My family has always loved Bodega Bay and have often camped there over the years. My mom had always wanted to rent a vacation home there and this year we finally did! The home was beautiful and the location was perfect. My dad golfed and we spent many hours at the beach (which was just a short walk!). The views from the home were spectacular and everything about the home was perfect. We BBQ'd on the gas grill and watched the sunset over the ocean (sometimes through the fog) from the deck. Not only was the home perfect (very comfortable/accommodating/clean) but the weather was also amazing. We hope to make another trip there next year. The owner was very responsive and wonderful to work with!

Beautiful home with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this property in late July 2015. The home is very nicely appointed and stocked with all you would need for an enjoyable week. Our group was two families (4 adults and 3 children) and we had a wonderful time enjoying the beach and preparing meals in the beautiful kitchen. The deck offers views of the Bay and Golf Course and was perfect for morning coffee or late afternoon glass of wine. I highly recommend this property. The owner was very responsive and easy to work with as well. We hope to return!
