About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps up to 6)

In this tranquil hamlet nestled into a hillside, overlooking fairways, mountains, and the waters of Bodega Bay and Doran Beach is where you will find 'Coastal Fantasea.' Here you will surround yourself in a home with ocean décor and striking attention to detail. This two-bedroom, two-bath home will impress you with its bright and airy contemporary architecture, yet decidedly comfortable atmosphere from sunrise to sunset. In fact, it matters little if the sun is shining or the sky is overcast - you will enjoy every moment in this 'fantasea' of Bodega Bay.

Escape to 'Coastal Fantasea' for a romantic honeymoon destination as others have! It is also ideally suited for two vacationing couples, but certainly works well as a family getaway. The master bedroom features a King size canopy-style bed, flat screen HDTV/DVD/VHS, and a beautiful bathroom with two sinks, a Jacuzzi tub, glass block shower, and a large mirrored closet. The hot tub is just outside the sliding door. From this room you overlook Bodega Harbour. The guest bedroom features a Queen size bed, flat screen HDTV and separate entry to the guest bathroom with a shower/tub combination.

The living room boasts beautiful gray wood plank ceilings, as does the master bedroom, and it has a gas fireplace that warms the room nicely. From the living room you can access the deck, gas barbecue, and hot tub where you have views of the 14th fairway of this challenging Robert Trent Jones designed golf links. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need for your stay. In the den you will find a sleeper sofa and a new 'smart' flat screen TV to access your own Netflix account! By all means, bring your laptop as a secure wireless connection is also available.

Moving upstairs you will feast your eyes on the same beautiful plank ceiling and a handsome blue felt pool table for you to brush up on your game while listening to the tunes from your IPOD on the docking station. This room boasts a striking views of Bodega Harbour and Doran Beach.

This area offers an abundance of activities including a short walk to access the beach, as well as the many beaches to explore along the coast, hiking trails, dining experiences, wine tasting, biking, spa treatments, fishing, kayaking, and much more. 'Coastal Fantasea' will be a wonderful haven to return to after a day of seaside adventure. Feel free to bring Fido or Fifi with you!

Please note: We have a 2 night minimum...

About Linda

We live in Santa Rosa with our children and our pooches. This home was a surprise (yes!) 20th anniversary gift from my husband!! I stayed here thinking it was a week long vacation, but he presented me with a little wrapped box and inside was a house key! Of all the places I've been in the world, this is my very favorite. It's filled with memories of family and friends and rejuvenates me fully when I am here. I know it will do the same for you!

Linda purchased this house in 2002

Why Linda chose Bodega Bay

We have always loved this quaint area and the beaches! My husband loves to golf here, but I prefer kayaking or long walks on the beach. The area restaurants are quite delicious and the spas are a nice indulgence!

What makes this house unique

Fabulous to soak in the hot tub and then read by the fireplace. After a nice bottle of wine, we challenge each other to several games of pool and ping pong! We always bring a laptop so we can stay connected and the wireless is so convenient.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Hi Linda,

Just a quick note to let you know how wonderful your home is. My parents and family arrived earlier this evening, enjoyed an awesome dinner on the patio, short walk on the beach, and then lounged around in the living room gazing at all the decor, relaxing by the fire. Your home is so clean! And beautiful inside and out. Even got a visit from the bob cat. Anyways, I'm sure the next three days will be just as perfect. Thank you for renting it out!"

Exactly what we needed…and exactly what was promised

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely, welcoming, and comfortable home. It's exactly as you'd picture a home on the coast - you can tell that the owners have furnished it with care and lots of thought - but also made sure that everything isn't so "precious" or untouchable that you are afraid to curl up with a cup of coffee and a book on the couch. It's the kind of home we live in - so to experience it on holiday was perfect. The owners have provided games and puzzles, movies, books and an iPod docking station in the pool table room just in case so you can enjoy good tunes while being terrible at pool (like we are!). The home is cozy but also spacious enough for multiple activities - playing pool, ping-pong, hot tubbing, watching a movie, playing a game, or sitting in front of the (easiest to light ever) gas fireplace. The kitchen is complete with enough tools and cookware to make it easy to make a meal, and stocked with everything you'd want on a getaway (namely wine glasses!) but also a large bowl for cracked crab and other staples. I also appreciate that it is truly pet-friendly. I have been to homes in the past that say they are, but don't really seem to be and I spend half my time being nervous. There were dog dishes already there to use, and even little collection bags provided by the management company - just in case. I can tell that the owners truly mean it when they say that pets are welcome. Beach access is just a short walk to the golf course and down a path - easy to get to and quick to get back to the house after a long walk. The management company checked in twice to see if we needed anything and were easy to work with through the entire process - start to finish. We had a wonderful time and will return to this lovely place.

Owner's Response: Very happy our home was the place for enduring family memories, including your pooch! We love our pets, too, and are pleased to be able to offer our home to others who think likewise. It means so much that you all felt as comfortable as we do there- it's such a special place for us! Hopefully you got a chance to use the new BBQ. I look forward to your return visit. All the best~ Linda

A 4th of July To Remember!!!

  • 5 of 5

Bravo!!! Coastal Fantasea is a very special property. It's impossible to to put into print how special this vacation property is, it is one to experience!!! Most vacation homes regardless of how expensive tend to look worn by their vacationers coming and going. But, not this property. We felt as though the owners had just left for the weekend and trusted us with the keys to their beautiful home. We aren't golfers but throughly enjoyed being on the deck watching the golfers struggle with the sand dune. The neighbors in the community are very welcoming. I recommend going to the club for lunch and a great view of the ocean. Then there is the gorgeous show by Mother Nature sunrises and sunsets and we never even had to leave the house to see the show.

Wonderful week at the coast.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for allowing us to enjoy your wonderful home. The view from the pool room is spectacular. The house feel comforatble and relaxing upon arrival. We had several friends that came and went during the week and all enjoyed the pool table, ping pong table, and hot tub. The fireplace is a nice relaxing touch, especially on the rainy days!

Our stay included all types of weather, but we had plenty to do with all the games.

Thank you again for a wonderful week!


P.S. Our granddaughter loved the sand toys, and our dog enjoyed chasing the tennis ball at the beach!
