We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Nice walk to the beach and lovely views. Could have used a few more condiments for cooking. Wish we were allowed to use the gym
Beautiful home with great views.
Our family totally enjoyed The Compass rental. It is a beautiful home and the views and proximity to the beach were amazing. Spacious and nicely decorated with all the amenities. We would stay again.
Felt the love the instant we walked in.
Lovely home feeling that certainly has been a home of love, care, beauty, sharing, and an abundant life. The House makes you want to love and care for it and leave it a better place then you found it.
1. It needs a full set of at least 12 place setting silverware.
2. An electric hot water pot and take away the kettle on the stove that does not whistle to let you know it’s boiling. Twice I found myself leaving it on including when I was closing down the house! (Very bad on my part and I was so happy not to have burned down the house!)
3. A few more wine glasses would be nice.
4. A bigger cutting board. There were 2 tiny ones.
5. If possible something blocking the lights from the smoke alarms -hard to sleep with those lights.
6. More purified water as there were 8 of us and 1 2&1/2 gallons left for us, not enough.
7. Knowledge from the office that the beach access is right across the street to a private secluded beach down a steep flight of stairs.
8. Parchment paper, Satan wrap, baggies would be a nice addition.
9. Since we were all adults maybe all the bedrooms could feel as luxurious as the master bedroom? We ladies are all Queens retreating together and single beds feel like children’s rooms.
Loved the fleece jackets in the hall closet available to use-very nice touch. Loved the special China pieces available use, large platter, large bowls, nice cooking utensils, pots and pans. Could use a few storage containers.
Much appreciation for being able to use this home. We all felt so privileged and are completely grateful to it’s owners.

Am booking several more retreats there in the immediate and distant future. We ladies were so happy enjoying the views and all the amenities.
Very organize. Good size house. Great views. Great weather. Would definitely come back again.
Bodega Bay stay in March 2017
If I could I would give it 4.5 stars. The pictures do no do the views justice. Views are spectacular! It has a deck off of the dining area that is great for haning out. The view from there is awesome. It would have been better if there had been some patio furniture to sit in and maybe a fire pit. There are some wood benches built in deck but needs soome work. The reason I say 4.5 stars is beause of the deck and the living room furniture is not so great. Overall place is great and I would go back again.
