Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


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!

Fantastic Location

  • 4 of 5

Fantastic location right on the beach! Short drive to Bodega Bay for groceries and several restaurants. The only glitch was the lack of wi-fi which made it difficult to respond to work-related emails and the constant ringing of the seemed someone was attempting to send a fax. We finally just unplugged all of the phones.

Home was well-stocked and very clean.

VERY clean! Fabulous views!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Fox Kit Cottage very much. It has to be the cleanest house we've ever stayed at! Beautiful deck and the hot tub was perfect! Fabulous views!!!!

We had a bit of a scare there the first night. We were watching a movie on TV and at 9:30 someone came knocking on our door six times hard. Scared the bejeebers out of us! We just sat still, no one was going to answer the door, it was dark outside. At 10:00 that same night the knocking started again. We still did not answer. We were all very nervous that night. There are no pull down shades on the back windows and the glass doors have no covering for them. It was quite scary and I sat up all night afraid to go to sleep.

Beside covering for the back windows it would be nice if there was a hand rail in the shower to grab onto for us older people. (The shower was big and roomy, very nice!) There were no larger glass bowls to cook food in the microwave with for dinner, but we made adjustments and just did without. Loved the Keurig coffee pot and the hot chocolate for it! Nice touch!!!

Again, the house is IMMACULATE, you could eat off the floor!!! The views are FABULOUS! The deck is SPECTACULAR! The TV is nice and LARGE! AAA+++ I would definitely stay there again, and hope no one came a knocking in the night.

Amazing Ocean Views!

My mother and I celebrated our Birthdays at this beautiful home. We couldn't have asked for anything more. Ocean views, quiet neighborhood, beautifully maintained yard & very clean house. Can't wait to visit again!

We loved the house and location. Sadly, we were there during the terrible fires in Northern California and had to leave a day early. The smoke was too much for us. The house has everything and the best view. We are hoping to come back when we can access Napa and Sonoma

Perfect place to get away, even for a few days

  • 5 of 5

We did not have much time to get away, but we decided we needed a break. I am so glad that we took the time to go to Fox Kits Cottage again. It feels like you are home when you arrive. The property is beautiful, well maintained landscape, immaculate throughout the house, and very comfortable. We really felt like we had gotten away. We were able to enjoy salmon at River's End in Jenner, which was delicious. It really was perfect weather and was sunny each day. I cannot wait to come back.
