About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, sleeps 2 adults + 2 children (twins in open loft)

FYI: The devastating Sonoma County fire of 2017 did not in any way effect the area for many miles around our location and did not impact the coastal region. Our hearts go out to ALL those who have suffered a terrible loss.

Welcome to our cozy, romantic little beach cottage for the 'Ultimate Pacific Coast Surf Experience'. The photo's will depict views from the property and the four year old remodeled interior. The cottage is truly the most adorable little place with a mix of coastal and state of the art touches. Ideal for a couple's romantic get-away or with the twin beds in the open loft (accessed by a tiny spiral staircase for the nimble) it will work well for 2 children/teens.

Check-in 4AM. Check-out 11AM

PLEASE NOTE: AS PER SONOMA COUNTY LAW: We are NOT permitted for large gatherings.This is NOT a wedding destination venue and unfortunately cannot accept reservations for wedding parties, pre or post wedding or social gatherings. 4 Guests maximum at all times. No day guests or pets. Thank you.

The beach cottage is built on the bluff over looking a spectacular show of nature at her best. The property has 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 T.V. & Internet. Free US and Canada long distance phone service supplied for your convenience.

Dining for four at a table set in a corner window with views to both the west the headlands to the north, absolutely breath taking! All electric kitchen appliances: fast glass top range, and small appliances. 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.

Gas Grill on front deck.

Attention to detail for your comfort continues throughout. We replenish our linens continuously and supply plenty of towels, linens, comforters (with duvet covers changed each guest) and quilts. All the mattresses and pillows have protectors and a high quality, excellent memory foam pad on the CA 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. To have beach access right off your deck is wonderful. The impact of walking into the cottage and being amazed by the beautiful sight of the pounding surf right there in your living room was well beyond words!

What makes this cottage unique

Semi Priivate beach stairs and a quiet secluded beach.

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 accessing it. The high tide cuts the beach off from either end, but you can still use it (except for the occasional King Tide). Fun tide pooling for children of all ages!

The cottage is in an amazing location, the gulls fly past the windows and the ever changing climate and surf will make you feel wonderful and rejuvenated. Not to mention: ALL YOU CAN HEAR IS THE SOUND OF THE WAVES CRASHING!

PLEASE NOTE: AS PER SONOMA COUNTY LAW, we are NOT permitted as a wedding destination location, we cannot host your wedding, pre or post wedding gathering or hold parties and gatherings of any kind.

FOUR (4) Persons MAX at ALL times. 100% PET ALERGY FREE PROPERTY.

Magical: You Wont Want to Leave

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late at night--our flight was delayed and the drive up from SFO takes as long as it takes--so it was pitch black when we went to bed. When we woke and wandered into the livingroom kitchen area, we weren't prepared for the majesty of the view. For the next six days, it was hard to pry ourselves away from looking at the roaring surf and watching the sun pull itself westward.

We saw a fox and two sea lions without leaving the property. And now that we're back on the other side of the country, all we can think about is finding a way back to this clean, comfortable, well-stocked cottage, and the sublime view it offers onto the natural world.

Exceeded Expectations

It just doesn't get any better than this place. Spectacular ocean view on one side, bucolic farm on the other. Private, clean, comfortable. Fully functional in every way.

Love the ocean

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect for me! I came alone. I had no trouble with connecting my devises and the kitchen had just about everything I needed. The absolute best part is the view and the access to your secluded beach and all the rocks and birds. Was just what the doctor ordered! Going to make this an annual trip.

Just awsome and wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Walked in to one of the most pictures and beautiful views of any hotel & vacation homes that we have ever stayed. Relaxing with sound of the waves, Ocean mist and flying birds. This cute, little cottage is perfect for a couple and a couple with two small kids. My husband and I enjoyed every bit of this romantic and gorgeous place. We didn't even wanted to eat at the restaurants. We got our orders to go, brought them home and sat on the patio chairs enjoying the food with a glass of chilled chardonnay. Awwww do I need to say more???

Another great treasure to this cottage is the private access right down to the beach.

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.


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.
