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 Sonoma County

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!

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!!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Kanwar and Ginger are the most kind and generous people! Their home is absolutely breathtaking! We stayed here for my birthday weekend and even though it stormed the entire weekend it was so magical and still amazing to be here. We plan to make this a family yearly tradition. I would HIGHLY recommend this phenomenal home to anyone that would love a getaway to the beach!!!! Thank you Ginger and Kanwar can't wait to come visit again soon!!!

Epic Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5

Bubbles by the Sea was the perfect destination for my wife, my sisters and our parents to spend Christmas week. We've rented houses before for our trips and the pictures don't do this home justice, in particular the great room (where we spent 90% of our time) was absolutely stunning. The features and customizations in the home are all top of the line and made easy to use with a manual Kanwar leaves for you. Kanwar also meets you in person to show you some of the features but please note he does not have a cell phone and has to travel to get to the property so there is no way to get in touch with him if you are running late to revise a meet up time. We regretted missing him and not because we needed help with the features of the house- he made that easy for us- but simply we wanted to meet the amazing hosts that left a bottle of champagne, some other sundries and had Christmas music playing for us as we walked in to the property for the first time. Truly memorable. The hosts make a point of making your stay special. We didn't want for anything. The home really complemented our family cooking and dining (amazing kitchen and great dining room table with comfortable chairs), our family tradition of cocktail hour before dinner (a full outfitted bar complete with wine fridge and every glassware you can imagine - take a seat at the bar and take in the Pacific ocean while you sip your cocktail), and our family tradition of playing boardgames at night. The home is located in a fantastic location right near Bodega Bay which was fun as we recognized several filming locations from Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds. Very convenient location to wine taste in the Russian River Valley - a great many vineyards all within 20-30 min. Lastly we woke up every morning to drink our coffee while watching different combinations of deer, fox and hawks just steps away from the property. Amazing! Would go back in a heartbeat. If you are choosing between two properties don't think about it- choose this one immediately. You will most definitely not regret it. Thank you Kanwar!

Perfect Getaway Home

  • 5 of 5

Bubbles by The Sea was an excellent choice for our family weekend! We were three siblings with our respective spouses celebrating a 60th and a 70th birthday weekend. Our oldest sibling is handicapped, in both a wheelchair and a walker, and the house accommodated him beautifully. It has stone floors (the radiant heat is in the floors) and ti was easy for him to get around.

We cancelled our two restaurant reservations for the weekend - because the house and setting and views were way too gorgeous to leave! We found local fresh fish, some oysters, a few more items at the local market, and just stayed put. The kitchen, living & dining areas are perfect for socializing, cooking a meal, enjoying the surrounding wildlife and ocean views and just generally enjoying a weekend away together. We all live in the Bay Area and we felt like we were really away from it all! The lot is spectacular and the nearby hikes and beaches are just a few minutes/ miles away.

The house is clean, modern, and not overly cluttered or decorated; rather there are just the right amount of lovely sculptures, textures, and amenities to sooth and comfort the mind!

My family and I will be back to Bubbles By the Sea - hopefully sooner than later! Thank you Kanwar and Ginget, for creating a beautiful space for us to enjoy - so close to our respective homes!

Nancy & family
