Owl's Nest Retreat transports you worlds away with sweeping ocean views from Point Reyes to Bodega Head onto dramatic sunsets over the Pacific Ocean. Sitting atop the highest viewpoint in Bodega Harbour, this 3000+ square foot home backs to a nature preserve which deer, rabbits, and quail call home. With lush greenery in the front of your view and ocean behind, it's just a five minute walk to an uncrowded, pristine beach. This thoughtfully-designed home features water views from most every room and a large well-equipped kitchen facing the water with dining areas that seat 18. The game room features pool & ping pong, fireplace with bar area, TV & DVD and adjoins a solarium with indoor spa and rain shower. Owl's Nest has 4 queen beds and HD TVs with DVD in each sleeping area. Master suite has a sitting area, steam shower & jetted tub, plus private deck-all with amazing ocean views.

Best of all, every work surface faces the water, so whether you are cooking or doing the dishes, ocean views abound. There is also a separate bar area with a SubZero with ice maker and bar seating for four. The breakfast nook also seats six and the dining table eight, so up to 18 people can eat at the same time.

Nearby amenities include spas and winetasting.: Owl's Nest Retreat is just minutes from the The Links at Bodega Harbour, one of California's most challenging and scenic golf courses. The course is open for public play, with easy access from the Clubhouse parking area to Doran Beach and the Bluewater Bistro Restaurant. It is 20 minutes from a fabulous spa and winetasting. There are great ocean-view hikes within a 15 minute drive.

Weekend ruined by no heat

  • 1 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 28, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
Here's what happened to us: We had no heat during our weekend - on Saturday, we set it, but it didn't work and we froze all night. There weren't nearly enough blankets in the house to help. On Sunday, coming back from our day out, we tried to set the heat again and realized that the thermostats were actually not working at all. After figuring out the right phone number for the handyman (as it was given to us incorrectly), which took a good half hour, we waited an hour for him to come, an hour for him to work and the heat didn't really kick in until about 1am. As a result, we had an unpleasant stay and a few of us got sick.

The owner made no attempt to contact us or offer any sort of compensation despite our repeated attempts to reach out. Not even an email to apologize. I have to say that the house itself is nice and, if the heating is working, it's probably a fine place to spend a weekend, but I would not risk doing business with people like this again.
Owner's Response: We try very hard to make sure everyone's stay goes smoothly, but sometimes things do break down. The unfortunate circumstance in this instance is that the renters waited two days to call my in-area person (his phone number is listed in numerous locations - they are the first clients - ever - who were unable to find it) and when they finally did call it was early evening on a Sunday before their Monday departure. The "handiman" called them back promptly and came out right away (he does live about 45 minutes out). He fixed the problem in a short amount of time and when he left the temperature was 67 degrees. The house has two full-size extra blankets and three additional throws, but I will be adding more blankets in the future. I was unable to respond to them directly as I was traveling when this occurred, but besides my handiman responding immediately, one of my other team members called them right away (upon learning of the issue) and then followed up with an email promptly to let them know we were apologetic for their inconvenience. If we don't know it's not working we can't fix it, and we did respond right away. Had they not waited until the very end of their stay and simply called as soon as they discovered the issue - they would have received the same prompt response they got on Sunday which resulted in the problem being fixed.

Lovely home for families/groups!

We brought a group of friends to Bodega Bay and rented the Owl's Nest and one other house for a celebratory weekend in advance of our wedding. The Owl's Nest was gorgeous, clean, and very nicely appointed. It's super close to the beach (2 different beach access paths are nearby). My only complaint was that the owner refused to let our whole group gather at the house at any point--since I paid the security deposit and explained candidly our event and why I was making the request, I couldn't understand her refusal. It created an inconvenience, but ultimately we really did enjoy our stay and would absolutely come back with a smaller group or recommend the house to friends in the future.

Perfect Girls Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 14, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
We stayed at Owl's Nest for a girl's weekend/40th birthday celebration. The house fit the 8 of us perfectly! It was very clean and perfectly spacious. There are so many fabulous areas of the house to enjoy from the beautiful kitchen, deck, hot tub and outdoor fire pit. We ended up canceling our dinner reservations two of the evenings in favor of cooking in and enjoying the house. We also had so much fun walking to the beach every day (many of the women are runners and loved their morning jogs along the shore). Owl's Nest is perfectly situated for checking out the local spots like Osmosis Spa, Wild Flour and of course not too far from wine country! Stacey and Laura are very responsive and had great recommendations for spas, restaurants, hikes, etc. I'd definitely stay here again! Loved it!

We enjoyed our stay at this lovely home with our kids and grandkids. The views are spectacular and the house is so clean and well appointed. Very comfortable with everything you need. The beds were firm...but we slept like logs! Will definitely go back.

Wonderful Home, But Should Be Advertised As 3 Bdrm

We loved our stay here. Beautiful home, amazing views, very clean. Well appointed, not left overs from a yard sale. We were however disappointed that this was not a 4 bedroom home as advertised. It was for a staff retreat and we each needed our own room. One of us was left sleeping in the game room on the sofa bed. Although the sofa bed was more comfortable that the beds upstairs as they are VERY firm. Had the beds been more comfortable and it was actually a 4 bedroom, I would have given it an excellent rating. That said, we would love to come back!! It was peaceful: the wildlife in the greenbelt, the spectacular ocean view from the glass enclosed deck, walks to the beach on the nearby trail, the lovely fireplace, comfortable furniture and the well thought out decor made this a staff retreat to remember.

In the 1960's Bodega Bay is was made famous by Alfred Hitchcock's thriller, 'The Birds'. While film locations from the movie are still an attraction, most people come to Bodega for rest and relaxation. Outdoor activities abound, but Bodega is also just twenty to thirty minutes from spas, world-class wine tasting and excellent shopping. It is also home to the 4-Star Golf Digest 'Places to Play' Links at Bodega Harbour with both stunning scenery and challenging golf. Bodega Bay has large expanses of uncrowded beaches where your neighbors are more likely to be seagulls rather than people. Great restaurants abound and the scenery of California's Highway 1 which runs through Bodega Bay is legendary. And if you want to just curl up with a good book, views of the ocean and Bodega Head State Park make reading a whole new experience. Many weekend events take place in Bodega, from the Fisherman's Festival to art extravaganzas. Bodega has something for everyone, from couples to families.

Other Activities: golfing, hiking, kayaking, surfing, beach combing, whale watching, wine tasting, shopping, kite flying, bird watching

Golf: The Links at Bodega Harbour is five minutes from Owl's Nest Retreat. This course is nothing short of stunning and was listed as a Golf Digest 10 Best Resort Courses. The first four holes take you up and away from the ocean in a true links-style layout. At the top of the course on the number 5 tee box you are truly 'King of the World' with a view unsurpassed in Bodega. You then make your way down towards the ocean on the remaining front holes. The back nine is wider and a little more gentle than the front, and on the finishing holes right next to the ocean you have waves right next to you on the other side of the sand dunes. Who cares if you miss a shot, the view makes everything worth it!
