About Steve Aitken

The property features three private rental units; both have private entrances and decks for your enjoyment. I've lived in Sonoma County for over 30 years and enjoy the fishing and relaxation that this property offers.

Steve Aitken purchased this house in 2016

Why Steve Aitken chose Bodega Bay

The Sonoma Coast is one of the most beautiful and dramatic places in all of Northern California. It's somewhere that I wanted to spend time, so a vacation rental made a lot of sense. I truly enjoy sharing my home with people from all over the world, who appreciate life on the water as much as I do.

What makes this house unique

Staying on the water is a vacation in and of itself. The immersion of life according to nature....watching the tides come in and out, enjoying a sunset from your private deck, watching the pelicans fish for their dinner and the river otters playing....there's just nothing like it. Many people don't realize the diversity of wildlife up here. Bodega Bay is also an active fishing village. You can go out deep sea fishing on a fishing charter, or I can tell you where to buy the freshest fish, or enjoy the best local clam chowder. There's something for everyone here in Bodega Bay!

Quiet clean & private

We loved this studio. It was well equipped and has a small deck over the water. We watched the boats, fog, otters & birds come & go. It was perfect for the two of us. 💞?

The view can't be beat! We really enjoyed our time here.

  • 4 of 5

A very nice place for two people. It is a studio as listed in the description, although it's listed as having one bedroom in the search parameters. Parking is very tight and you have to rely on your neighbors to follow the rules of having only one car. Debbie the housekeeper is very nice and we were happy she was there to help address the parking issue when we arrived.

A few things that would make this unit more convienent include a working dishwasher, a few hooks near the door to hang items as there is no closet, a few hooks in the bathroom to hang wet towels, a teflon skillet for cooking (we went out and bought one), and a solid bottomed tray that fits in the toaster oven. We used tin foil over the wire rack and it worked pretty well.

We appreciated having the movies to watch after the sun went down. Loved sitting on the deck and watching the boats and wildlife. Very relaxing!

We will stay here again but in one of the other two units as they both have bedrooms and a bit more space. Unit 1 is beautiful and will be our first choice for our next visit.

Great view, nice place for a few nights

  • 4 of 5

Super cool place. Doesn't have any closets or dressers so your suitcase is always out on a chair. Dishwasher doesn't work and windows weren't clean. I'm a picky person so I have high expectations. I would still recommend it. It's very unique and very comfortable to stay in...cozy!

"Ditto" what others have said - great location on Bodega Bay; beautifully remodeled with attention to detail - the flooring and quantity of windows were exceptional, the sofa and bed comfy; there were plenty of towels in the bathroom cabinet; Steve, the owner, was quick to reply to the questions we had prior to arrival; although the driveway is steep, Steve's explanation of how/where to park in the driveway made it easy to use. The kitchen appeared to be well appointed - however, with restaurants nearby, we chose to eat out: yummy small plate dinner, accompanied by wine flight, at Gourmet au Bay; fish and chips at The Fish House; incredible breakfast at Ginocchio's; great lunch at Bodega Harbour Golf Links. We have been to Bodega Bay three times, always staying at a hotel - the location, the ambiance, and the view make Steve's VRBO the absolute best choice! We look forward to returning!!!
