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!

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!

Amazing house, amazing view.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for Labor Day weekend, and absolutely loved this house. Great views of the Pacific, nice open and spacious kitchen/living room/dining area all surrounded by windows facing the ocean. The master bedroom was amazing, and the other two bedrooms very nice as well. This house is just beautiful inside and out. The location was great also...just a short (10 min) scenic drive to Bodega Bay, and only a few minutes to any of the scenic beaches and hiking trails along Highway 1. To top it off, Kanwar and Ginger are excellent hosts. I would highly recommend this house, and hope to return sometime myself.

Unbelievable Find!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Bodega Bay to celebrate my best friend's 50th birthday. Quite an enormous occasion. Kanwar and Ginger's lovely home proved to be everything we'd hoped for, and more. The attention to detail and impeccable maintenance of the property ensured our return to this delightful home. The little town of Bodega Bay offers a fantastic variety of restaurants, shopping, wine tasting, and even a farmer's market.

Thank you again for one of the most memorable vacations to date!

A great holiday getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of two couples who stayed here between Christmas and New Years to unwind, taste wine and celebrate New Years in San Francisco. As previous reviewers have noted, Kanwar and his wife Ginger make you feel so welcome when they meet you at the home. The house has alot of cool bells and whistles and I loved all the fireplaces and heated floors which really made the house so cozy on some of the 30 degree nites we were there. We were taught how to use everything and where everything is. Lots of extra linens and small appliances to make your stay comfortable. All the bedrooms are extremely comfortable and at 5 months pregnant, I slept like a baby! The kitchen was well stocked with anything you might need to cook breakfast or small meals. We always made coffee in the morning and breakfast a few mornings. Kanwar also left some "bubbles" for us to enjoy and a few bottles of wine and beer which was a great start to our vacation! The view is absolutely jaw dropping and we had a great time watching the wildlife in the morning including deer, racoons and other critters. The hot tub was a great spot to unwind at the end of the day as well and the night sky is spectacular! This home was a great home base for us as we spent a few days wine tasting in Sonoma and Napa. There are great local restaurants in the Bodega Bay area including Spud Point Crab company, which is not to be missed! We had lunch here twice in our week here! The Rivers End is another great restaurant about 10 minutes north where the Russian River meets the Pacific. The check out instructions were very easy to follow, making our departure very flexible and easy. We would definitely recommend this house to family and friends who are interested in spending some time in Sonoma by the sea or wine tasting. I would love to return when the weather is a bit warmer and we can enjoy the beach as well as the other activities this beautiful area of the country has to offer.
