Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Fox Kit Cottage offers a dramatic ocean experience in sumptuous comfort. There is nothing like it in Bodega Bay. Well-appointed, it has two bedrooms, one with a queen-sized bed, the other with two twin beds, and one bathroom. It is perfect for a romantic getaway or a vacation for a small family.

With its remodel in 2011, the cottage became an upscale retreat for its owners and guests. Sitting above Wright’s Beach, views dominate from nearly every room, and intense ocean scenes are customary. From the beautifully designed deck and spa you will relax, unwind and feel what the power of the sea can do to your soul.

The ocean is not the only attraction. There is wildlife everywhere. Birds, whales, and fox (the cottage’s namesake), are just a sampling of what is seen through cottage windows. From two short paths – Monterey Pine Path, and Bluff Path, you will enjoy coastal landscape and incredible views. The spacious lot hosts a majestic, intricately intertwined, 40-year old Monterey Pine tree, with a path under its canopy and a stone bench to sit and admire natural arbor artistry. The Bluff Path takes you down to a bench that sits amongst abundant fresh water springs, native foliage, with the vast ocean below.

Furnishings reflect a commitment to clean contemporary design, local art, and attention to detail. Amenities include quality bedding, thick bath towels and robes, and natural toiletries, setting this home apart from others. Those who like to cook will appreciate the 5-burner gas stove and fully stocked kitchen.

There are activities nearby for everyone: Horseback riding on the beach, surfing at Salmon Creek Beach, pampering at the Osmosis Spa, hiking among ancient redwoods at Armstrong Grove, golfing at Bodega Harbour, abalone diving, kayaking and swimming on the Russian River, zip-lining at Occidental …. The list goes on and on and we are happy to provide suggestions!

The best view on the nicest beach in the area

  • 5 of 5

Very well kept cottage, all the amenities of home. Easy access to the beach. The view of the beach and sea will bring us back!

Unforgettable views of crashing ocean

  • 5 of 5

Great, cozy, warm bungalow. Plenty roomy for 4 people. Open up all the windows and big sliding glass doors and just listen to the crashing waves and feel the Pacific air. We loved the surf sound and the breeze so much that we slept in the back bedroom facing the ocean. Spectacular deck overlooking Wright's Beach. Views northward to Goat Rock and beyond. Kitchen has everything you need to cook in. A couple of minor problems popped up that Beth quickly resolved for us. Mama fox greeted us first day. And baby fox visited us on last day. We would not hesitate at all to rent here again.

A gorgeous haven of peace and tranquility.

  • 5 of 5

Panoramic view of the spectacular Sonoma Coast and a spotlessly clean and charming home filled with beauty and comforts. We will be back. Thank you so much. We are feeling renewed.

We love the fox, the neighbor, the views

  • 5 of 5

This vacation was amazing. The moment we entered the home we were overwhelmed with the comfort of the place and the beauty of its location. We even got to meet the next door neighbor Meg (Margaret) who offered us advice on visiting the best beaches for a family. Finally, perhaps the best part, a fox visited us every morning, coming to look at us through the sliding glass door. I have been sharing the information about this beautiful house, its comfortable beds, its...everything...with all of my friends since my return. We will definitely be back.

Beautiful house, landscaping, view. 4 stars because kitchen was not as clean as would have liked

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful place to get away and relax! The pictures make it appear the deck leads out to the beach, it does not. The house is on a cliff. Still worth it as there is easy access to the beach. Beds were comfortable, decorated tastefully, only negative was not being impressed with the level of cleanliness in the kitchen. Make sure you do your research as to what to expect for weather. Being our first time here, we did not realize sunny California has a lot of foggy and overcast summer days on the coast. :-) Lots of fun things to do in the surrounding areas, expect at least a 20 minute drive or more though.
