About Robert Oliker

I'm a graduate of UC Berkeley from the school of natural resources and have a law degree from Loyola Law school in Los Angeles. For the past 28 years I have had my own law firm in the beautiful town Petaluma. I am an outdoor enthusiast and love to travel anyplace I can be in nature. While a great city is a wonderful place to visit, if it's not nearby some natural wonder, I'm probably not interested. I'm lucky enough to live in the San Francisco Bay Area where I have the best of it all. My wife and I have done a fair amount of international travel as well as exploring much of the United States and Canada but we are ready for the next adventure. We love music, theater, dance, great food, camping, hiking, biking, kayaking, and reading.

Robert Oliker purchased this house in 1996

Why Robert Oliker chose Bodega Bay

Once you visit you will know why I bought this home. The unobstructed frontline water view is one of a kind. Being the last home before the State Park provides incredible privacy without being far away from town.

If you have kayaks, you can literally walk them down the driveway to the harbor when the tide is high. Kayaking in the inner harbor is very peaceful and there is great bird watching. Bodega Bay is also a great place to go bike riding. If you follow Westshore Road around the harbor, you will come to Bodega Head which is a great ride and there is great whale watching for you at the end. There is also great hiking nearby. If you go down the driveway and turn right on Westshore you will come to a boat launch and campground. Almost immediately opposite the campground you will see a break in the fence and a trail which crosses the bluff (watch for ticks) and goes all the way to a very private beach. There is also a great hike around Bodega Head from the main parking lot. If golfing is your preference, check out the Links at Bodega Harbour. Call for a tee time.

There is horseback riding nearby at Chanslor Ranch which is just north of town.

Eating is also a great local activity. Right around the corner on Westshore is the Spud Point Crab Company for excellent clam chowder and fresh crab, or the sandwich shop next door which has a killer tri tip sandwich. If you go back to Eastshore Road, there is a small shopping center that has a nice coffee house and Terrapin Creek Restaurant which I think is the best restaurant in Bodega Bay. While you are there, check out Local Color which is a fine collection of local artistic talent. If you go back to Bodega Highway, Pelican Plaza has a nice market with good sandwiches and right at the corner is the Boat House which is my favorite for fish and chip. There is also Lucas Wharf and Inn at the Tides are larger restaurants which are both good and both sell fresh local seafood. A little further down the highway hidden behind a berm on the highway is the Dog House which has great burgers, hotdogs and fries.

There is also an ice cream store right there.

Memorable Mornings

  • 5 of 5

Every morning, my friends and I would walk into the living room or onto the deck and see a slow sunrise coming up. The water was calm and the boats would be going out for the day to do their fishing or trawling. So peaceful looking. Back to the house ... loved the deck, loved the house. It was extremely comfortable with all the necessary amenities. I loved the idea that guests were asked to "take something, leave something." So, there was a variety of items that you would think you'd have to pick up during your visit but didn't because someone had already picked it up for you. At first, I was a little taken back when there wasn't a TV in the living room but it all worked out in the long run. When we were actually in the house, we talked and visited. There are lots of games to play and books to read. All in all, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone looking for a peaceful stay.

Beautiful home in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Just look at the picture. This house is everything it says. Great for 3 couples. Lots of room and privacy. Great deck with hot tub - we ate outside and it was wonderful. Well appointed kitchen - everything was there. Beautiful bathroom. This a great find. Bodega Bay was a little crowded on Labor Day Weekend, but the house was very pleasant. I can't wait to come back.

Beautiful & quiet location.

  • 5 of 5

I must have sent Bob 10 million emails asking questions before our trip and he responded to all of them in a timely manner. :-)

The house was exactly how it was described and the pictures do not do justice. We found other small wonderful surprises not included in the house description.

My 5-year-old nephew LOVED the house. He said "Bye, House. Don't be sad. We'll be back..." when we were leaving and he specifically asked me to send a Thank You note to Bob.

We now have a new favorite place to stay in Bodega Bay.
