About the property

PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT a wedding destination venue.

We unfortunately cannot accept reservations for wedding parties, pre or post wedding or social gatherings. 4 Guests maximum at all times.

The beach cottage is built on the bluff over looking a spectacular show of nature at her best. You will have your own private stairs down to a sheltered, secluded beach. You can have beach fun and family time exploring tide pools or a romantic, quiet picnic...Just the two of you and the ocean.

The design and construction team have kept the integrity of the seaside property with it's spiral staircase up to the loft, raked ceiling and coastal decor enhancing the beach house ambiance. Comforting neutrals, warm whites and current pops of fun color punctuate the decor. Driftwood effect ceramic floors, quartz counter tops and nautical theme accessories carry the beach cottage essence throughout.

The Pacific, west facing beach cottage allows you to view the surf at all times and enjoy the most breath taking sunsets, crashing surf, sea mist and bold rugged rock formations. The great room with it's 20 foot wide wall of pacific facing windows is comfortably furnished with a beautiful glass pebble, flame effect fireplace and a wall mounted flat screen TV with DVD player. Internet, free US and Canada long distance phone and an I-home are supplied for your convenience.

Dining for four at a table set in a corner window with views to both west and up the coast to the north, absolutely breath taking! All electric kitchen appliances: fast glass top range, and small appliances. And new quartz counter tops. The kitchen is well appointed for enjoying home cooked faire. Why go out when you can have the best ocean view in town with the surf as your back ground music! Enjoy your cracked crab and Chardonnay at sunset with your family or special other.

Attention to detail for your comfort continues throughout. Plenty of brand new towels, linens, comforters (with duvet covers) and quilts. All the mattresses and pillows have protectors and a high quality memory foam pad on the queen.

We have designed and furnished the Seamist beach cottage to create a memorable and wonderful experience that will leave you rested, renewed and ready to return again and again!

We look forward to your visit.

About Gay Jardine

We are a design and construction team with a lot of energy! We love taking something and turning it around. Our vacation rentals and guests are important to us and we enjoy our work. We also have other properties that have been a success and enjoyed by many.

Gay Jardine purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Gay Jardine chose Sereno del Mar

This property is a find in a million! You just don't come by a gem like Seamist every day. The impact of walking into the cottage and being blown away by the pounding surf right there in your living room was well beyond words!

What makes this cottage unique

Semi Priivate beach stairs. Semi Private beach stairs and secluded beach.

(PLEASE NOTE: Sorry, this is not a wedding destination location and we cannot host your wedding, pre or post wedding guests or hold your function)

Not only do you have an amazing up close ocean view, but, you have access to the beach below. The beach is close to being private with only one other neighbor's staircase. The tide cuts the beach off from either end, but you can still use the beach. The cottage is so close to everything and yet you can feel completely isolated. ALL YOU CAN HEAR IS THE SURF!

SEAMIST, a BRAND NEW remodeled beach house is situated on the bluff near Gleasons Beach on the Pacific Ocean, a short 5 mile drive north of Bodega Bay and 7 miles south of Jenner between Salmon Creek and the Russian River in Sonoma County. This Pacific get-away Beach House is unique and one of only a few actually situated on the ocean with it's own private stairs to the beach.

PLEASE NOTE: WE ARE NOT A WEDDING DESTINATION SITE AND CANNOT HOST WEDDINGS, PRE OR POST WEDDING PARTIES OR FUNCTIONS.

Upon entering Seamist Beach House you will be astounded at the visual before you...The Pacific Ocean in all her glory. You are so close you can feel her power and will be awestruck. Gulls fly past your 35 feet of wall-to wall, ceiling height windows. Pelicans land on Elephant rock, which punctuates your spectacular view. Enjoy watching migrating whales 'blow' in the distance. You will experience being alone and away from it all with the pounding surf surely as if it was your own!

This area is revered for it's dramatic coastline, famed wineries and lush farmland. For outdoor enthusiasts, hiking trails along Bodega Head, kayaking, local guided tours on Bodega Bay or waiting for the perfect wave at Salmon Creek, Gleasons (walking distance), Portuguese and Wright Beach, all within very close proximity are great ways to get out and enjoy this amazing location. For equestrians: Chancellor Ranch, a short drive away where you can take trails up into the hills or down to the ocean.

The coastal community offers seafood and family style restaurants, beach shops, galleries, saltwater taffy and kite shops, a marina, golfing and a spa. The Pacific Coast, Sonoma County with it's many attributes is a wonderful location. Just 70 miles from San Francisco and 7 miles south of Jenner and close to the charming little towns: Bodega, Sonoma, Guernville and Duncan Mills.

Seamist Beach House is an amazing location where you can restore and redefine relaxation.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Great views, great things needed for a fabulous stay, warm, well done. An additional bath could be helpful but didn't ruin any plans or time management. Thanks for all. Our Thanksgiving dinner was the best one I can remember in many years! Fantastic

Wonderful cottage with AMAZING ocean views of the Sonoma coastline.

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at this delightful cottage! Thoughtfully designed and very well-kept, this property has some of the most spectacular views of the Sonoma coast line we have ever seen. We especially enjoyed watching the sunset each night from the deck, located just a stones throw away from the water. We enjoyed our stay so much, we cannot wait until our next opportunity to return!

Fabulous location! Perfect, but a couple of small accessibility notes.

  • 4 of 5

The location and the view just could not be better. The house was very comfortable and very well appointed with everything one could possible need. Really enjoyed the convenience and beauty of the electric fireplaces in the bedroom and living room. As the owner says, the access to the loft is up a very steep and narrow circular staircase with tiny steps and best for the young and nimble. I would add that the tub is very deep and a bit hard to access for the arthritic, but has two sturdy grab bars. I only mention these two accessibility issues to make possible renters aware.

The owners were very responsive to inquiries, as was the property manager (when we just could not find the switch for the garbage disposal - hint: it's a button on the counter) :-)

We were fortunate to have just beautiful sunny days for our four days there and will remember the time forever. A really special place. Thank you.

Just steps from the beach!

Beautiful ocean views and just steps to the beach. The house was also very clean. The kitchen is fully equipped with anything you would need: spices, pots, pans, teas, coffee and wine glasses! Would highly recommended staying here!

WOW

  • 5 of 5

This is an absolutely beautiful place to stay. I read the positive reviews prior to our four-day vacation. They were spot-on accurate. The Seamist Beach Cottage has an amazing unobstructed view, right over the top of crashing waves. The outdoor patio was perfect for feeling and accepting the ocean breeze, watching the play of the ocean against the majestic coastal rocks, and catching a deep breath of fresh California air.... Nirvana! The interior of the cottage was cleverly designed, offering a charming and uncluttered living space as a quiet accompaniment to the beauty of the ocean. Every piece of furniture and wall hanging spoke to the "cultured rustic" / "designer seafaring" considerations of the hosts. Everything was extraordinarily thoughtful, including my favorites, the sinks and bathtub. This place was designed to please patrons of the coast. Further, the kitchen was fully stocked with every cooking utensil imaginable making meal preparation a coast-side luxury. If cooking isn't your thing, there is a brilliant restaurant about two miles south of Seamist, called Terrapin Creek. It is as good as it gets for dining in California. We had a five-star stay. We will be back.
