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 Sereno del Mar

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 place!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Pappy's place! Plenty of space for our family, we enjoyed gathering around the fireplace, meals around the table, and an outside bbq! The bocce ball court and horseshoe pit really provided us with great outdoor entertainment! Not to mention smores around the fire pit. Spacious parking, and a well contained kitchen was just right for our needs. We loved it !

Lovely stay

  • 4 of 5

Our daughters shared the little bunk bed room and just loved it! Great to have the cozy livingroom for early morning tea drinking and the hot tub for late afternoon soaks. The walk over to the beach and lookout is perfectly short. So nice to not get in the car. Well appointed kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals at the house.

Great home by the ocean

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed vacationing for a weekend at this home. There was plenty of room, even with six adults, two kids, and a dog. House was well stocked and comfortable. Quick and easy walk to the beach. We're excited to come back again.

An absolutely beautiful and relaxing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Love that each bedroom has a bathroom attached. We used the hot tub everyday! Everything we needed for cooking (pans, utensils, plastic wrap, knives etc. was there). We had plenty of room so the 5 of us could be doing different things and not be in each other's way and plenty of room to do crafts and yoga. We hit the perfect weather - 1 day lightening and thunder, 1 day of mist, 1 day slightly overcast, 1 day beautiful and sunny and 1 day windy. There was a fox that came through the driveway a few times - that was awesome! A firepit in the back and a Webber Grill on the porch. The gas fireplace in the house was wonderful. Everything was so wonderful - thank you!
