About Don Munger

I grew up in Sonoma County and have always loved our beautiful coastline. My wife and I greatly enjoy spending time in the outdoors, exploring California from the beaches to the mountains.

I am a sole practitioner attorney and my wife is a public health nurse. With our three children off to college and an empty nest, we decided to buy a home in Bodega Harbour South. We fell in love with this beautiful property and have had a lot of fun making it a comfortable, homey place to stay. When we retire we look forward to having our children and grandchildren spend time with us at this wonderful place.

Don Munger purchased this house in 2012

Why Don Munger chose Sonoma County

This property gives you immediate access to all the Bodega Coast has to offer. For golfers, the 13th tee is right outside the backyard. Doran Beach is a short easy walk along a quiet road right out the front door, less than a mile, with easy access. Pinnacle Gulch & Short-tail Gulch trails take you down to the ocean and back on a wonderful 3-mile hike from your front door. This is a perfect gateway to all of Sonoma County, minutes from the surrounding coastal beaches, the Russian River and all of the wine country.

What makes this house unique

Comfortable, spacious, and wonderful views make it the perfect place to relax with the whole crew.

Beautiful home in a beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our time. The house was well stocked and the surroundings were absolutely beautiful. Don was very responsive and also thorough in his instructions and labeling around the house, haha. One minor critique was that I was very much looking forward to using the hot tub but the water was really green so I opted out.

Distracting Views All Around!

  • 5 of 5

My 7 female friends and I recently stayed at the Grey Whale for a long weekend to visit and catch up on our sewing projects. We had a great time, but struggled to accomplish any sewing due to the beautiful views from nearly every room in this home. The main living area is upstairs, giving the best wrap around views of Bodega Bay. The photos in the listing are very accurate. The beds were all comfortable with plenty of blankets for cool evenings. The home is warmly decorated and the kitchen was spacious, plenty of room for several cooks at a time. The hot tub was a treat as well. The neighborhood is well situated, quiet, and very pretty. We enjoyed walking around and also a short visit to town for provisions. The owner provided a handy reference book with information about the house as well as the surrounding area and things to do. Overall it was a relaxing and enjoyable experience! We would stay here again.

Beautiful home and view

  • 5 of 5

We reserved this lovely home so our family could gather for our daughter's wedding. Beautiful home overlooks Bodega Bay. Simply fantastic. Hiking trails to the beach right from the neighborhood; enjoyed watching from the back deck as golfers teed off. The "house book" explains how everything works and includes maps to nearby hiking trails. Had a wonderful mini-family reunion and a story-book stay for our daughter's wedding. This was our first trip to Bodega Bay and this house is just a short drive to numerous beaches, the Russian river valley, and beautiful California wine country.

Spacious, well-equipped Bodega Bay home.

  • 5 of 5

We recently rented Grey Whale for a reunion of old high school friends. It was the perfect location for our group of 12. The house is spacious with a large, open concept living area which was perfect for a group our size. The large kitchen is very well equipped and the house, as a whole, is clean and well maintained. We would highly recommend this spot to those looking for the perfect Bodega Bay getaway!
