Newly remodeled rustic home with a view of the Pacific Ocean. Has an adorable loft that opens your views to the ocean. Cozy enough for 2 yet can sleep 8 in beds. It has a newly tiled kitchen/family room floors, granite countertops and new carpet.
It is a 5-minute walk to the ocean, and has 2 outdoor decks with unobstructed views for those who don't want to walk down to the beach. An additional side deck that is completely protected from the wind. The other outdoor deck has a tiled BBQ area surrounded by redwood decking. Great for snacking what comes off the barbie! Our family owned vacation home has been a spot for many happy years and memories. Perfect spot for family or friend reunions. With its updates like HDTV, WiFi, and a CD player, its rustic feel is complemented with all the modern conveniences including a microwave, oven, dishwasher and 2 full baths. Make your get-away, a lasting memory too! Easy parking!
Year Purchased: 1972: My mother and father purchased this house in 1972. Since then, my family has stayed there many times. We live within a hour of the house so it was nice to have weekend get-a-ways.
Why the Owner Chose Bodega Bay: We chose to buy this vacation rental because it is walking distance from the water. It also has its own private driveway where multiple families could park for the weekend. It sleeps up to 8 people so we would have our family reunions and other large gatherings there without feeling cramped.
The Unique Benefits of this House: Our property is unique because it is equipped with large bay windows that have a wonderful view of the ocean. While cooking breakfast or dinner in the kitchen you can witness the spectacular sunsets. There is also a patio and patio furniture with an enclosed deck for viewing the ocean.

By The Sea was a wonderful place to stay while in Bodega Bay. My husband and I stayed here over the Christmas holidays, and it was just delightful.
The home was clean and tidy and had been decorated for Christmas. It had all the amenities one could hope for. I told the owner I was making prime rib for Christmas dinner, and she went out and bought a new roasting pan! There are 3 separate decks, two of which have sweeping views of the beach and ocean.
I found this home to be charming, comfortable and am most definitely planning on going back again. The owner, Susie, is very personable and pleasant to deal with, and she made sure we felt very welcome in her beautiful beach home.
We spent the weekend in this beautiful home with 4 of our friends in August, and had the best time. I must say, I have never had to reserve a vacation rental before, so I was a little hesitant about the payment process...but everything worked out just fine, we had a place to stay that was better than expected, and spent the weekend catching up with our friends.
The house was a lot larger than I expected, and it had everything we needed to cook meals for 6 people. There was a nice bottle of wine waiting for us when we got there, which was really a nice touch. There are board games, books, wifi, and cable if you want to relax indoors (there were a couple of us who had to work throughout the weekend, so we appreciated the various rooms in the home where we could sneak away from the group and the fast wifi!). There is a beautiful view of the water, and you can walk to the beach! We will be back! Thank you so much.
What a treat! So close to the ocean and an easy walk to a stunning beach. An iconic beach house with beautiful and wild vegetation and sandy roads. The cottage is clean and comfortable---we loved the modern kitchen and the wood stove. Perfect location for day trips to wine country and the Redwoods. And yes! The cottage comes complete with a DVD of Hitchcock's "The Birds"!
We were thrilled to find "By the Sea" exactly as pictured and described. The view from the living room windows was enthralling; the house, clean, fresh, and cozy; the ocean access, five minutes on foot; and the beds and furnishings comfortable, inviting, and clean! All of us had a wonderful time and can't wait to go back. Thank you for a delightful rental with everything we could want provided right down to wine glasses and a chilled bottle in the refrigerator!
With just three days notice, I was able to work with the owner Susie to secure this magnificent place. The Government Shutdown landed us in Bodega Bay for a wedding that was originally supposed to take place in Yosemite. We were very pleased with this alternate location. The property was clean and well-maintained with everything at our fingertips. My husband, two kids and my parents stayed comfortably in this nautical treasure. It was quiet and cozy with TV's for the older group and a separate TV for the children. Seating was very comfortable and the remodeled kitchen a fancy touch. Plenty of room for more in the loft. If you have to work while you are there, the property has WIFI which was a must have given the cell phone service (AT&T) is limited. [I'd recommend turning off all electronics to enjoy the serene location of this property].
The owner Susie was so nice to deal with - she made sure to respond very quickly to each email that I sent. We even arrived to a bottle of wine. Such a fantastic touch. Thank you Susie.
We will definitely be back - hopefully sooner rather than later!
One more note, the patio is fantastic - I wish we would have stayed longer so that we could have take more advantage of it. That being said a beautiful day we had on Monday enjoying Mimosas and snacks. A very necessary getaway for our family!
We are three couples who like to get away together every year to just relax and be able to hang out together. This is our 4th year and we all agree that "By The Sea" was our favorite place to stay, so far. The beds were *very* comfortable and the linens were very nice and in generous amounts. The home was clean and nicely decorated, but just as important, it has a comfortable, true beach house feel. There is a lovely view of the ocean, yet the walk down the lane to the beach it is quite short, so we easily got a lot of beach walking time. We drove out to Bodega Head on Saturday and were treated to beautiful views up and down the coast. There is a nice binder with information about the house and places to go. We went out to Bodega Head and then had clam chowder at Spud Point Crab Company and grilled oysters & portuguese soup at Fisherman's Cove -excellent. Susie was great to work with and very responsive. We'll definitely be back.
