Bodega Bay House Rental Photos and Description

***Please click on 'VIEW CALENDAR' for availability*

Text me at 510-209-0518 with any questions.

1 night stay and last minute special may be available.

NOTE: House is located on Bay Flat Road around the bay and not on main Highway 1; however, there may be noise from the foghorn during the night and traffic from local residents returning and leaving to work.

'Harbor Cutie' has been enjoyed immensely by our family during weekends and the holidays. Built in 2000 with 3 bedrooms / 2 baths, this retreat (sleeps 6-8) is centrally located in the coastal town of Bodega Bay.

This charming escape offers a 180 feet of expansive view of the Bay, and is across the street to Porto Bodega Marina where you can purchase fresh locally caught seafood or book fishing, crabbing, and GIANT Squid trips depending on the season. Multiple excellent restaurants, coffee shops, grocery stores, and art galleries are also within easy walking distance or a short drive away.

We are also only minutes from beautiful Bodega Head, the Bodega Marine Lab, Salmon Creek and Doran beaches. Step over to the Bay for Kayaking, Clamming (low tide only) or just to explore the bay to get your feet wet! Schedule Boat trips, Kayaking trips, and Horseback riding to the beach and possibly walk to your adventure from our house. Or you may want to try a moderate hike to Salmon Creek beach accessible from our property.

Our retreat has modern furnishing, most amenities of a home away from home, 500-1,000 thread count sheets in king & queen beds, portable child bed/crib, plasma TVs, internet access, and books, as well as toys/ video games for the children and adults. Relax with a glass of wine on the front deck while watching passing boats as well as numerous unique birds. This is truly a superb location for those who enjoy being closer to the water...

Plenty of *parking spaces, basketball, and play areas on the 2,500 plus square feet of driveway with bay view. The whole yard is securely enclosed by 3 feet high, 156 feet wide fence and have optional locks which makes it very safe for family with small children. You and your little ones will have a BLAST with so much fun, space, views and fresh air!

About Jodie

We purchased 'Harbor Cutie' when it was just a house with open land and overgrown weeds. In addition, there were huge eucalyptus trees which had broken branches that kept on falling down every time there was a bit of wind. But the panoramic bay view and LOCATION sealed the deal!

For the safety of our children, we removed the old trees, paved the front yard, and installed the surrounding fence. We also installed over 600 square feet of deck with a gazebo and pergola along with benches for the family to enjoy the outdoor in comfort.

We love it here because of the view, the beach and because of the relaxed feeling we got every time we come here. From inside the house looking out, we can see the soothing water and the coming and going of the tides and of fisherman boats every day which makes 'Harbor Cutie' a truly unique location!

This is also the place where my children first explored nature, learned to ride their bikes without training wheels and helped mommy dig for soft shell and horseneck clams! My son tells me 'Habor Cutie' reminds him of 'The Little House' by Virgina Lee Burton. This house is special and will survive through the generations and she 'may never be sold for gold or silver'!

(Well, we'll have to see about that!) :-)

Jodie purchased this house in 2007

Why Jodie chose Bodega Bay

The bay and it's varying shores are right across the house. Salmon creek beach is a accessible from the rear of house thru campgrounds and is a vigorous 20 minutes nice scenic hike thru dune shortcuts. Longer if you follow mostly paved roads with directions it is about a 30-40 minutes leisurely walk if you do not accidentally stray from path like inadvertently getting on horse trail etc. Attention to landmarks are needed to return home more quickly and some handwritten tips are in guest book at house. It is more meant to be an adventure and most people can handle it including my kids when they were 4-5 years old and the grandparents in their late 50s. The end result as you get closer and closer to the crashing waves are worth it especially if you go in morning before winds pick up. Many beaches are less than 5-10 minute drive from home such as the above salmon creek beach, bodega head bluffs and beach, doran state beach which requires payment or a beach pass which we have at house. Many other beaches are just a bit further away on highway 1, but the ones close by are probably best each with their own unique characteristics.

What makes this house unique

Large usable outdoor space for children to play safely and a huge 600 square feet deck to have a family meal while taking in the panoramic bay views. Walking distance to many restaurants, fishing trip departures located right across the street as well as hiking to many trails and beaches from our home.

Beautiful spot, charming fishing village. Fresh crab right off the boat was delicious! The house was furnished with everything needed for a great stay. It was perfect for children of all ages.

Harbor cutie was such a lovely treat. Everyone enjoyed themselves thoroughly. What made it even more enjoyable was having the campground behind us. I had over flow family that camped behind us; which worked out perfectly for everyone. Beautiful views, perfect layout and great amenities. Thank you again for the home and we will definitely be back.

Wonderful stay, this is a gem! Highly recommend this home for any occasion!

We stayed for a five day get away from the Bay Area and it couldn't have been better. The house was so well stocked and has everything you can ask for, great selection of things for small children, games, etc. And great selection of recreation items for adults, too. It was an ideal home base for exploring all that Bodega Bay and the surrounding areas have to offer. The views of the sunset over the bay were terrific, and the cozy fireplace at night was appreciated. We are going to make this an annual tradition! Jodie was wonderful to work with, thorough with instructions and details, and it all added up to a lovely home away from home. Thanks!

Great place!!!

  • 5 of 5
We rented Harbor Cutie for our family's weekend getaway. The house is easy to locate and in center of the town. It has great view out to the bay from front house. Jodie is very well-thought, she has everything in the house for our needs and very well-stock. Kids enjoy themselves as well with lots of activities. Harbor Cutie is sure a kid-friendly place with basketball hoops, scooters, plasma bikes, beach toys; and then video games at night. My kid asked me to come back for 5 more days :-)

I highly recommend this place, it's definitely a come back for us in near future!

"Girl's" week in Bodega Bay

"Girl's" week in Bodega Bay
  • 5 of 5
Spent a week at Harbor Cutie in April. Springtime is GLORIOUS in Sonoma County. Beautiful weather, hills are green, wildflowers in bloom!
The house itselft was extremely well-kept, clean, spacious, and in a great location.The kitchen was fully stocked (even with staples) which makes for really easy meal preparation for those not wanting to eat out a lot. There are a few restaurants within a 10-15 minute walk (but many more within a couple of miles) and the bay is right across the street. Bodega Head is only a few minutes drive. Bedrooms and bathrooms are all a nice size - plenty of storage for your "stuff". Free WIFI a plus!
Jodie (the owner) is extremely accomodating, considerate and very responsive.
What we did from Harbor Cutie: Lots and lots of coastal walking (be sure to get out of your car - the most beautiful scenery is "off road"; our favorites - Salt Point St. Park, Goat Rock area), Mendocino, Armstrong Redwoods, Marin Headlands, Mt. Tamalpais, Bohemian Highway.
We would HIGHLY recommend Harbor Cutie and Bodega Bay for your vacation rental!
