'Casa Del Sol' is a beautiful home located minutes from Portuguese Beach.
It is a very short walk to the beach. From the front deck, you can watch the waves crash on the beach. In the evening, you will see sunsets like you have never seen anywhere else.
The backyard looks out on acres of beautiful pasture land and you can always see cows leisurely grazing. The view from the loft upstairs is incredible!
If you plan your trip around a full moon, you won't believe how beautiful it is to look out your window at night and see it shining on the water.
The home is fully equipped with just about anything you need for an enjoyable stay at the ocean, including a hot tub, large bathtub with a Jacuzzi, Internet access and free long distance phone service.
There is a wide screen TV in the living room and a TV in the loft and the master bedroom. The home is completely handicap accessible.
You are welcome to bring your dog. Portuguese Beach, as well as many others in the area allow dogs on the beach as long as they are on a leash. There is also a beach at Monte Rio, on the Russian River, which is close by, where you are allowed to let your dog run free.
There are many things to do while you are in Bodega Bay. Hiking, golfing, walking on the beach, beach combing, kite flying, biking, horseback riding on the beach, fishing, kayaking, excellent dining, wine tasting, surfing and best of all, whale watching.
You can also just read a book and relax in the private yard and listen to the ocean.
In addition to all of this, there are many annual events in and around Bodega Bay that are always enjoyable. The annual Fisherman's Festival, usually in April, is complete with a parade on the bay of beautifully decorated boats, a crafts fair, wine tasting and all kinds of delicious food.
There is also the annual clam chowder fest, crab feeds, stew and polenta dinners, an art festival and many other events.

We spent a great week-end in this house. The house was quiet, attractive and had nice views. The kitchen was well stocked, even for serious cooks like us. There were plenty of pots and pans and the stove was great. The beds were comfortable in all the rooms and the shower in the larger bathroom was great. The loft bedroom was spacious and sunny. There is quite a bit of noise that comes from the loft bedroom into the smaller bedroom downstairs, so light sleepers may have trouble with that. There wasn't much noise from the loft that came into the larger bedroom.
We enjoyed the walk from Shell Beach to Goat Rock in particular. I also enjoyed being able to bring our dog and hope that other dog owners continue to be responsible so that dogs remain welcome at the house. The neighborhood was friendly and the owner was very easy to work with. We hope to come back soon.
We were lucky enough to stay in this wonderful home during a 70+ degree weekend in February; my first visit was in November, just a few short months before, at which time the weather was much cooler. Both visits were equally awesome and we can't wait to go back. Casa Del Sol is so comfortable, clean, well appointed and feels like home the minute you walk in the door. We feel lucky to have found such a treasure.
We arrived in the full throat of a storm with huge waves and sideways rain. Had a small problem with the thermostat and Ardelle resolved it for us very quickly. The house was very comfortable for six adults. The loft has two comfortable queen beds, good for one couple or several children. The kitchen was well equipped for gourmet cooking and the living room is large with comfy furniture. The ocean is a couple hundred yard away and we loved being able to listen to the surf through an open window at night. We'll be back!
This house was perfect for us. We brought my 85 yo mother who needs a walker for ambulation. The home, including the shower, was completely accessible to her. There was a ramp to come in the house and rails by the toilet. She felt welcome and safe and we could all relax knowing there were no hazards to negotiate. Kitchen is very well stocked. The living room large and comfortable. We enjoyed the hot tub at night. The location is great, just north of Bodega Bay, where you can access numerous spectacular state beaches. I loved being on the wilder oceanfront instead of the Bay. You could easily walk to a beautiful beach.
We spent a magnificent long New Year’s weekend at the house. It was the most well stocked home I have ever rented. The lay out of the house was perfect for our family. You could be in the kitchen cooking and still feel a part of the activities in the living room and dining room. We really loved the back yard and being able to site on the porch or in the hot tub and enjoy the cows in the pasture. Access to Portuguese beach was very close and easily accessible. We will be definitely be back.
We have stayed at this house many times, during the last few years and it always feels just like our home - away from home. To spend Christmas with family and have the space and accommodations this home provides, gave us much joy and an abundance of pleasurable moments, once again.
The weather was fabulous, the beach ever so beautiful and our cozy home a haven of happiness. Casa del Sol leaves nothing to be desired and we look forward to our next visit.
Thank you to the owner for providing so many personal touches and for stocking the home with items needed, but not usually available in a vacation rental.
Until the next time.
