Fox Kit Cottage - Crashing Waves - Upscale Cottage

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 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!

Cozy Beach Cabin Close to SF

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four came here for a winter long weekend get-a-way from San Francisco. Though it was a very windy weekend, the cabin is warm and cozy with beautiful views. The beds and couches are very comfortable. The kitchen is spacious and clean (though we had to use pans to cook our pizza- no oven trays). The cabin came with lots of DVDs and a nice TV space. Also, the front of the house is sheltered from the north&west and far enough off Highway 1, so I could sit out there and read in the sun, even though the ocean side was too windy. On our last day, the wind stopped and we got to enjoy the hot tub. It was a perfect end to a great trip!

Loved Our Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the Fox Kit Cottage last week. What a special place! The owners have done an absolutely beautiful job with the decor and making it feel cozy and inviting. All of the little details like the fox shaped door knocker and robe hanging hooks made it feel very unique and fun. It was such an uplifting and healing environment. We feel blessed to have gotten to experience staying there and hope to return someday. It certainly turned our stressful medical trip to the bay area into a refreshing respite. It really lifted my spirits. I can't physically hike, kayak etc. anymore because of my chronic pain/illness but I didn't even hardly miss doing those things...getting to stare out at the amazing ocean views from the hot tub, listening to the waves, and smelling the fresh air was wonderful in and of itself! We even got to see a pod of Grey Whales pass by. So awesome! Anyway, I just wanted to provide some positive feedback for you, the owners, and the cleaning staff. Kudos! Please pass our gratitude along to the owners for graciously sharing their little piece of heaven with us.

Amazing ocean view

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect, romantic escape! You can sit in the spa or on the deck and enjoy the waves crashing and the ocean breeze. Since we visited Bodega Bay in January it was nice to sit inside by the fire and still enjoy the ocean. The house has so much character too! We truly enjoyed our escape aka vacation.

Perfect Christmas getaway

  • 5 of 5

Wow...what a great way to spend Christmas....away from commercialism and just enjoying nature. KIT COTTAGE allowed us to do that. The crashing waves, the gorgeous views, the ocean air....GLORIOUS. The house was super clean and had everything we needed. The hot tub overlooking the ocean was an unforgetable experience. We will be rent this wonderful house again. Beth was great and answered all our questions. One of the best places we have stayed.

Had a great time at the Fox Kit Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Kitchen was minimally equipped but remodeled. Aprons and hot pads were dirty. There was no salt which was mentioned to be included. I just think someone should be checking kitchen inventory more often. Besides that, the cottage is great. Amazing view. Bodega coast line is world class.
