Overview

Bodega Bay House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 6

The View is spectacular.The house is spacious and comfortable. The kitchen was remodeled in 2009. It features a 6 burner gas stove, stainless steel appliances, double ovens, wine refrigerator, prep sink in the center island and granite counter tops. It is a cooks delight! Or BBQ on the gas grill on the deck just outside of the kitchen while enjoying outdoor seating with a view. Both bedrooms have Cal King size beds and flat screen TVs. There is a small room off of the living room that has a day bed with a trundle, just big enough for a couple of kids or pushed together can make another King size bed. The Hot Tub is located on a private deck just outside the Master bedroom and is great for late night star gazing, early morning sunrise soaking and daytime relaxing. The living room is cozy with a wood fireplace and a large flat screen TV that is connected to Directv Satellite programing, and there is a wide variety of movies on Blueray & DVD. But who has time to watch TV when there is so much to do? Stay in or go explore the area, either way you'll love it.

About Elaine (aka Nikki) Scoggan

We have lived most of our lives in Northern California. Bodega Bay is our 'Happy Place'. We work full time and plan to retire one day to Bodega Bay.

Elaine (aka Nikki) Scoggan purchased this house in 1997

Why Elaine (aka Nikki) Scoggan chose Bodega Bay

We spent our Honeymoon at a home up the hill and around the corner from Southern Exposure in 1985. We've rented vacation homes in Bodega Bay and vacationed with our family for many years until we were able to buy Southern Exposure.

What makes this house unique

The house is spread out, it's nice to separate from family or other guests if you choose. I love being able to hear the ocean when the windows are open. The beep from the fog horn on Bodega Head is comforting. I love walking on the beach and looking for shells. Every season has special events that are fun to do, for instance in April the Fisherman's festival is always fun with a boat building contest and race along with craft booths and the blessing of the fleet. In October Art Trails is fun to explore different local artists studios. Local farms and wine tasting are always fun to visit. I love to take a drive along the coast. And after doing all or none of that I can come back to the house and relax! The house is a Home!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Nikki,



We all have to say that your home in Bodega Bay is just wonderful. I've found myself daydreaming about sitting in the sunroom gazing out to the Pacific my first day back to work. The house had everything needed and more. Next time we vacation on the Northern Californian coast we will be sure to make reservations with you again. Highlights of our trip included horseback riding at Chanslor Ranch, beach combing on 3 different beaches, a visit to the school house from the movie "The Birds" and last but not least soaking in the hot tub back at the house.



Thank you for the great hospitality and amenities you offer. I can tell you your home tops the list above all the rentals we have stayed in the past.

Southern Exposure to full comfoet

  • of 5
Our stay - 11/15 to 11/19, 2014
My Wife, daughter and myself arrived in the later evening having no idea what to expect, ... Especially being our first ever experience in Bodega Bay. Waking up the next morning not wanting to get out of a very comfortable, warm bed, we walked out of the bedrooms to find ourselves in a state of aw. From Southern Exposure's complete R & R atmosphere to its amazing views it offers of Bodega Bay.
When we convinced ourselves to walk out of the front door to enjoy the mid 60 degrees day, we discovered Bodega Bay does compliment Southern Exposure well. We went to candy and Kites, gathered sea rocks, shells at 2 different beaches, tried 3 different type of restaurants, and ended our 4 day stay looking at our calender to book our next visit.
Thank you Nikki and Jim for offering us your rental and recommending some points of interest. My family and I will be making this a regular year to year visit. : )
Sincerely Gabe, Elk Grove, Ca

Bodega Bay House

  • 2 of 5
This was the final destination on our trip to California and eagerly anticipated, sadly the house did not live up to our expectations.
The second bedroom was very small with no space to store any clothes, no drawers just a small wardrobe which housed the hoover and numerous miscellaneous items.
There were no blinds in the window of this room and sunlight streamed through from dawn!
The hot tub was good but there were no easy chairs to relax outside just a rusty old sunbed which had seen better days.
Rubbish had not been collected from previous occupants and the shower in the master bedroom was broken and took several days to fix.
However, the kitchen is very modern and spacious and the property enjoys lovely views.
The area is lovely with some fantastic harbour seafood restaurants with lots of places to visit concerning the 'Birds' film.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts. My goal is for all my guests to feel comfortable and have a good time during their stay at Southern Exposure.I appreciate the feedback on the storage in the guest bedroom. I have been renting Southern Exposure for over 13 years with over 500 guest reservations and you are the first to mention the need for more storage in the guest room. I will review the storage available and make the proper adjustments if needed, so this is not an issue for future guests. As for windows not being covered, the only window in the guest room has a pull down blind as well as a fishnet sash on both sides. I assume your reference is in regards to the skylights in the vaulted ceiling that provide an hour or two of sunlight and heat to the guest room. The house was designed to give you an open air feel and maximizes all the available scenery of the beautiful Sonoma Coast. I'm sorry this style was not to your liking. Regarding the spa area, there is a 3'x3' granite table and two very large patio chairs for you to relax in. I ask our guests not to move furniture and if they do, to return them back to their original positions.These items may have been moved and not available for your use. I have also spoken to housekeeping about the trash and they've assured me that was an exception and not the rule.Trash was picked up the next day. From time to time items can break and I make every effort to fix them in a timely manner. I apologized to you for the unfortunate shower head issue and I was glad to compensate you for your inconvenience, which you failed to mention. Thanks for the kind words about the kitchen, it is one of my favorite rooms.The view is what people enjoy the most about the house.I strive to keep my house clean, comfortable and well maintained. I always want my guests to feel at home and as you can see from previous reviews, guests enjoy themselves. My goal has always been and will continue to be 100% satisfaction.

Wonderful Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just returned from Bodega Bay and a week in this rental. This house is awesome. The kitchen is amazing (I want it!). Everything we needed was provided. The neighborhood the house is located in is very beautiful and was nice to stroll around in. The wildlife were quite amusing, standing at the kitchen window in the afternoons practically demanding to be fed. Nikki provided a huge bin of seed in the garage so we were able to easily accommodate them :-) We did a lot of driving around the area to wineries, cheese farms and such. The location was great for that. Bodega Bay is a beautiful little sleepy kind of town. We did find nice restaurants and markets in town, but did most of our major grocery shopping in Sebastapol which is only 16 miles up the road. I would definitely come back here. This place is very quiet and relaxing and Nikki was great to work with. We had the added excitement of being there when the Napa earthquake hit which we could feel, but the house withstood the shaking with no problem.

Wonderful "Girls' Getaway"

Wonderful "Girls' Getaway"
  • 5 of 5
Three of us had a wonderful two nights at Southern Exposure. The beds were very comfortable, the master bathroom was fabulous and the view is amazing. We spent most of our time on the sunporch, watching the boats cruising in the bay, and the fog rolling in and out. The kitchen is equipped with just about any gadget, pan, utensil that you could want, and there is a terrific spice cabinet. We were amazed to see a good supply of flour, sugar and coffee too! The house is located in a subdivision on a hill, and we felt safe walking morning and evening. The views on the walk were spectacular, too. Nikki (the owner) was great to work with.

Outstanding property with an Outstanding view!!!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic 5 night stay in the property and would highly recommend staying here. The communication between Nikki and myself was first class. This house would have to be one of the best presented homes we have ever stayed in and we would of loved to have stayed for longer than the 5 nights. Kitchen is out of this world with the most well stocked spices etc you have ever seen. No need to eat out in Bodega Bay as this kitchen just inspires you to create chef like meals...Hot tub is fantastic and very private. Amazing 180degree of the ocean from the house. The walk from the house to the waters edge is approx 1.1miles. I would suggest you stock up on groceries in a supermarket outside of Bodega Bay as the selection there is limited and expensive also. All in all a phenomenal property with a phenomenal view!!!!

Beautiful views, Adorable creatures

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful property, clean and well supplied. Enjoyed our stay here very much. Coffee in the morning on the deck overlooking the ocean...priceless. Playing games in the evening in the sunroom watching the sunset...beautiful. If you are to slow to feed the doe in the morning she will peek in the kitchen window looking for you. She even brought her baby one morning. Quiet neighborhood across the street from Doran Beach. Nicki is great to work with. She had my deposit back to me almost before we made it home. Highly recommend.

Bodega Bay is a small fishing village north of San Francisco by about an hour. The bay itself is a sheltered cove. There is plenty to do fishing, canoeing, diving, surfing up the coast a little ways, and playing on the beach. There is horseback riding, golfing at the Bodega Harbour Golf Links, and wine tasting in nearby Sonoma Valley. In April, the Fisherman's festival brings out many arts and craft booths, they host a boat building contest and have live music. In July, they have a fireworks show that can be seen from our deck. In August, the food, and wine festival features many local restaurants, beer and wine makers. In October, Art trails offers open artist studios to the public featuring local artists in Sonoma county. Twice a year there is whale watching on Bodega Head, park rangers are there to answer questions and give information. Year round enjoy the beaches, fly kites, explore the many little shops in Bodega Bay and eat crab and clam chowder!

Other Activities: Art Galleries, Wine tasting, Nature hikes
