About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms; Luxury queen beds

The immense power and beauty of the Pacific Ocean instantly captivates you as you step into our newly built home with majestic views from every room. Catch your breath. It will take a minute to notice the incredible architectural details in this contemporary beauty. Each room boasts vaulted ceilings lined with cedar planks and large picture windows framed in wood. Skylights are strategically placed to let the sun stream in. Radiant heat penetrates through the natural stone floors.

Sip a glass of Sonoma wine at the bar and enjoy the panoramic ocean view. Become mesmerized by the pink and gold sun fading into the sea. Cook a gourmet meal in a fully equipped kitchen featuring a gas stove, warming drawer, two sinks, exotic granite countertops, and custom cabinetry. Plug your iPad into the state-of-the-art sound system and listen to your favorite tunes. Or, sink into the Great Room sofa, put your feet up, and watch a HD movie on the large flat screen television enhanced with surround sound.

Feel the warm jets sooth your muscles as you relax with friends under the stars in the hot tub on the main deck. There is a separate south-facing deck, fully protected on three sides, featuring a fire place, comfortable seating, and gas BBQ. Note the convenient pass-through window from the kitchen to the outdoor BBQ counter.

Each sleeping room features a queen bed, flat screen TV with cable and club-chair seating. Room temperatures can be separately set for complete and utter comfort. For a romantic touch, the Master suite glows with a limestone-framed fireplace. The limestone extends to the Master Bath counters and walls, wrapping you in spa-like luxury. Curved cabinetry, glass sinks and a rain head shower complete the Master Bath.

You will never tire of the wild life that graces our ½ acre lot. Hot coffee in hand, watch the early morning show. Delight in a fawn chasing a rabbit. Witness the courting rituals of buck and doe. Follow the fox strutting through the grass. Quietly watch the resident lynx seek its prey. Be in awe as the turkey vulture repeatedly circles and lands, and at last dives for his meal. You never know what you might see.

Tear yourself away to take the quick walk down to Portuguese Beach, one of Sonoma County’s majestic wonders. Smell the salty air, feel the waves break, and applaud the surfers who manage to ballet through the tides.

Enjoy our home. Rest and rejuvenate after immersing yourself into the signs and sounds of Bodega Bay and Sonoma County. Enjoy kayaking, golfing, fishing, antiquing, beachcombing, hiking biking and simply hanging out with friends.

About Kanwar Bagai

We are Kanwar and Ginger Bagai. Visited friends here one New Year's weekend and fell in love! The ocean was like a magnet and kept drawing us back. Finally, we bought a lot and built our dream home.

Kanwar Bagai purchased this house in 2012

Why Kanwar Bagai chose Sereno del Mar

We love the peaceful seclusion, open space and breathtaking views. There is no place else we would rather be and we hope our guests feel that way as well.

What makes this house unique

It is the perfect place to unwind! Our favorite thing on a clear night is to relax in the bubbling spa with a glass of champagne and count the millions of stars! Rain or shine, it is a slice of heaven!

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!!! We had a AMAZING girls 4 day getaway at this beautiful home! The great room is spectacular with those windows of ocean views & the kitchen is well appointed so no need to bring anything but food & drink! There were 6 of us and we were all instantly comfortable in the surroundings and could breath that Pacific air which contained no pollen! We all loved the heated floors and insta hot water out of every faucet that we now want those features in our homes! We enjoyed the short walk down to Portuguese Beach where we all took our shoes off, wondered & then sat to reflect while grounded... It’s amazing what the Ocean can do to ones soul! We new the next 2 days were going to be cold with wind & rain so we all brought Scrapbooking & craft projects to create with and the huge dining room table in the great room, surrounded by windows was perfect for that! We talked, laughed, snacked, cooked, sipped, created and laughed some more! We all agreed that we have to come back to Bubbles by the Sea and make it our Annual Girls Getaway!

Amazing Home

  • 5 of 5

What can I say about this stunning home? The hot tub, straight up, had some of the best views I've ever had from a hot tub. We were spell bound. My husband and I rent homes frequently, always with a hot tub, and we have been lucky to find some wonderful places. We thought this was one of the nicest homes we've ever rented in terms of the view, quality of the furnishings, linens and appliances. It certainly is the finest home we've rented for a group of 6. It definitely made our all-start list!

The home decor is exceptionally tasteful. I have rented homes where the homeowner's lavish decor was borderline gaudy, but not so here. I think Kanwar, the owner, has some culture capital in reserves. Major kudos to the owner for having the proper glassware for champagne as well as providing us a top-shelf bottle to enjoy on the gorgeous deck. He was an incredibly gracious host. Other highlights include a comfortably large table for hosting everyone at dinner. Also, the kitchen has two sinks - one for prep and a larger for clean-up. I can't think of a single drawback to this gorgeous home. If you want to upgrade your life to something between Sunset magazine and Architectural Digest, you should consider staying here.

Bubbles by the Sea is amazing!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for opening your beautiful home to our family for a much needed family vacation. Your home is relaxing and we loved all the wildlife. The boys enjoyed seeing all the deer close up. What a beautiful sight. Thank you so much for your hospitality and meeting us when we arrived. The tour helped during our stay. All the touches you added made this stay more enjoyable. We all had a wonderful time and sad to leave so soon. Thank you again! Regards, The Kelley Family

Best getaway for a while

  • 5 of 5

We (two families with 3 kids) stayed at this place for the July 4th weekend. We really liked the location and amenities of the house, enjoyed the view, the Jacuzzi, the outdoor fireplace and the well equipped kitchen. More importantly we were impressed by the hospitality of the owner: Kanwar drove all the way from his east bay home to meet us there on arrival and showed us around. He left a chilled bottle of bobbly and some cold drinks in the fridge.

Just imagine, with a glass of bubbly in hand, warm water are bubbling around you in the Jacuzzi, with the ocean bubbles not too far away. What a serene moment...(even though 2 minutes later kids will running around and blow bubbles at you:)

Stunning home on the Sonoma Coast

  • 5 of 5

This is truly one of the nicest rentals we have stayed at anywhere in the world, and we have stayed at some really nice places. The pictures don't do this house justice. It is really spectacular in every way. Supremely comfortable, perfected appointed, not a single thing missing from the experience... There is not much to do in and around Bodega Bay except take in the views and enjoy a few nice restaurants. That will suit any visitor to Kanwar's beautiful home just fine, as there is really no reason to leave. Grab some meat or fish to grill, open up a nice bottle of wine, turn on the amazing sound system, and take it all in. This is the good life! I cannot imagine there is a better home to rent on the Sonoma coast than this! Dealing with Kanwar was a pleasure and he is a gracious and generous host. First class all the way!!
