About the Property
2 bedrooms, 1 bath, sleeps 4 in beachy bliss ~ well behaved pets welcome!
Important Note:: Please be aware that dogs are not allowed on Salmon Creek beach in order to protect the Snowy Plover, an endangered local bird. However, dogs on leash ARE allowed on the following beaches, Doran (a safe, fun place for both children and pets), Bodega Dunes, just south of Salmon Creek, Wrights Beach and Portuguese Beach, both just a very short drive north of Salmon Creek. Also, doggies ARE allowed off leash in the dunes right here around the village where they can run and run and chase all those things real and imaginary that dogs like to chase.
Local Restaurants: For clam chowder you can't beat Spud Point Crab Co. on Eastshore Rd by the marina. Our best local restaurant for intimate dining, excellent food and delightful owners is Terrapin Creek Cafe. Bluewater Bistro at the clubhouse in Bodega Harbour has great views and Thursday night jazz. The Duck Club (Bodega Bay Lodge & Spa) on the way out to Doran Beach has a terrific menue in the main dining room or try the happening Drakes Lounge Bar area. On Friday nights the local wine shop, Gourmet au Bay, has happy hour so come enjoy some wine or beer while you sit on the back deck and enjoy the best harbor view and picture perfect sunsets.
If you like to get outside there's so much to do...if you prefer to hunker down in a cozy cottage there are lots of books and games to keep you occupied. However you spend your time at The Beach Cottage you'll leave relaxed and eager to return.
When you're ready to book, here are some things to keep in mind
We recommend you complete your booking on VRBO or ask the owner to send you a payment request through VRBO.Verify your payment method

Strolling to the beach is a delightful walk thru an unspoiled, vintage beach hamlet without a highway between you and the ocean. You can beach comb for miles along the coast. The Beach Cottage is quiet and peaceful where you can hear the ocean and shore birds calling. Sit on the new rear deck and watch exquisite sunsets or sit on the front deck and watch the sunrise over the hills to the east. Ahhh, life at the beach....
Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: We are an artist and a general contractor who have been living and working in the Bodega Bay area for over 19 years.
Why the Owner Chose Bodega Bay, CA, USA:
We chose this property mostly because it's across the street from our permanent residence which makes it perfect for our families to visit with all the grand children. We've lovingly upgraded the home but have been careful to maintain its unique beachy-ness and vintage, warm feel.
