About the property

Ocean & Pasture Views From Our Family & Pet Friendly Cottage; 3 bed, 2.5 bath

For your next visit to Bodega Bay, we offer you our comfortable, family and pet friendly, ocean view cottage. “Papy’s Cottage by the Sea” was once a fisherman’s cabin. For the past 20 years we have steadily expanded and made improvements. Now, at this special place, you can enjoy the dramatic beauty of the Sonoma Coast in the warmth and charm that reflects its fisherman heritage.

From our deck and spa you will relax and feel surrounded by nature. You’ll enjoy vast views of the ocean and coastline clear to Bodega Head. To the East are lovely pastures, complete with cows grazing and rancher’s roundups. If you prefer to be indoors, you’ll have these same expansive views from our Great Room. Out in the backyard, we have a new bocce ball court and horseshoe pit for friendly competition!

Our spacious 1600 sq ft. floor plan (3 good sized bedrooms, plus a bunk room, and 2 ½ bathrooms) is perfectly designed for up to three couples, two small families, or one larger family. It is also ideal for “Girls (or guys) Get-aways.” Maximum capacity is 6 adults and a couple kids. Our Great Room with kitchen, dining/living areas with an effortless gas fireplace is connect by French doors to our family room, with a 40' smart TV and Blu-Ray. So, when the “youngsters” and the “young at heart” in your group are ready for some space of their own, you simply close the French doors! All are furnished with comfortable, cozy furniture, decorated with a fisherman’s cottage theme.

Papy’s Cottage by the Sea is Located 6 miles north of Bodega Bay and 5 miles south of Jenner, in the historic Cliff Ave. neighborhood. To feel the sand on your feet at Wright’s Beach or Duncan’s Cove will be a 5-minute walk down state maintained pathways.

Use Papy’s as a second home to access the variety of activities the area offers. Minutes away are some of Sonoma County’s best hiking trails and cycling roads. The fine Russian River Valley wineries are only about half an hour away. The young and old can enjoy beach combing, tide pooling and whale watching. Or simply relax, stay put, and take in all that nature brings you from our comfortable family cottage.

Why Beth chose Bodega Bay

Living in the mountains, we were drawn to the ocean for a second home. We loved the charm of the Cliff Ave/Wright's Beach neighborhood. There is nothing like it in the Bodega Bay area. We bought the little cottage when it was not more than a shack and have steadily added and improved so it is now a comfortable place for family and friends. We are happy to share it you!

What makes this cottage unique

Unique to Papy's is our great big lot! It provides a feeling of openness with miles of ocean views to the South and rolling hills to the East. Yet, in the backyard you have fenced privacy, with bocce ball and horseshoes!

Great Family Trip Home

  • 3 of 5

We loved the location and size of the house. Walk to the beach, great views, lots of games, fire pit, hot tub. We brought a family of five and our dog. There would have been ample room for two more adults and a child. Our first night we figured out our bed had someone’s BO on it the heating blanket wa completely saturated in it. I reached out to the manager I never got a response, we had to wash our

bedding. Papys is well loved and a bit run down for the cost it’s in need of some TLC. It would have been 4 stars if the bedding was clean. We might return as our three kids loved it.

Quiet location, great view and close to beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. Beautiful weather. Home was as expected. Only negative was we had a toddler and the walk trail to beach required us to carry her. We did end up driving to Wrights beach campground instead which is less than a mile north. Walk to beach for adults and kids is great. We were told by a life guard to stay far back from the surf so we did not play in the surf at all. So if you want to play in the ocean we saw a few spots south on the way back to Bodega Bay.

Cozy and accomodating

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 stayed here for a week. An awesome experience. Walking distance to the beach, close to town, close to the Russian River. Day trips were always something to look forward to.

The backyard games were fun as well. The hot tub was a welcome way to unwind and the beds were all comfortable. Thanks for making our week in Bodega Bay one to remember!

Better Than Advertised

  • 4 of 5

The house was spacious, and very well appointed. Fully stocked kitchen, including herbs and spices, toaster, waffle iron, blender. Country kitchen atmosphere with large dining table. The gas fireplace kept us cozy. Lots of reading material, and a separate TV area. Comfortable beds. Great location, with short walk to a beautiful vista point, and stairs down to two beaches. The ocean views are as beautiful as Pacific Grove, but without the people.
