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.

Suitability:
  • unsuitable for elderly or infirm
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters

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.

Nikki purchased this house in 1997

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.

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!

Southern Exposure Spring Stay

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.

Great family getaway

This house is great for a family vacation. My wife and I took our 2 daughters to stay at this wonderful house and couldn't be more satisfied. Everything from the location to the spa outside the master suite made this trip a memorable one. This house has it all - views, hot tub, phenomenal kitchen, nap room (right besides the family room is a great nook to take a daytime nap - highly recommended), gas Bbq, best sunroom we've ever seen.....I really can go on forever with what this place provides.

Suggestions for the folks that stay for more than a couple days - go horseback riding at Chanslor Ranch and walk as many beaches as possible north of town on Hwy 1 (there are so many).

The house itself is kept clean and is really comfortable to be in. I can't stress it enough to choose this house when staying in Bodega Bay.

Well-kept, Beautiful House made for a Seamless Vacation

My husband and I enjoyed staying here with friends, another couple. As such, we appreciated the layout of the house- the two bedrooms are not right next to each other, offering a little more privacy. The master bedroom is the most removed from the rest of the house, and along with the master bath is spacious and comfortable. The second bedroom is slightly less private because you have to exit the bedroom in order to get to the bathroom, but the doors are literally right next to each other, so it wasn't too bad. Even the long sunroom, running the length of the house, has a little seating area on each end of it so you can have some privacy there if needed! The separate family room is comfortable for everyone hanging out together in the evening. The kitchen is as well, offering the wide bar seating and also a large table for bigger meals or a game night! Others have already mentioned the closet full of cards and games! (We had an epic game of Jenga!)
It's a big neighborhood, but this house is so close to the entrance that you feel it's more cozy. And seeing deer and turkey right outside the kitchen window, not to mention the ocean view from the front, keeps it feeling like a retreat.
To echo what others have said, we have often rented through VRBO but I have never seen a kitchen so well stocked! Not just with pots, dishes, and utensils, foil and wrap, but also a huge cabinet of spices, flour, sugar, even rice when we were there! It is a wonderful large kitchen but you may have trouble finding a place to put groceries; every cabinet is full! It would be very easy to even have a big holiday meal here!
One side note: if you like to stay put and relax on your vacation, maybe just the occasional walk on the beach, this is perfect for you. If you like to go out and see sights and shop and be entertained, you will be driving upwards of an hour most days.
Thanks to Nikki for all her helpful advice. We didn't need anything during our stay, but she was very helpful in answering questions about the area as we planned our trip. Great experience!

Beautiful Vacation House

What a spectacular location for a vacation stay! A view of the ocean and access to walking/running paths. Very quiet and relaxing.
Fresh seafood in Bodega Bay, just 5 minutes away. The kitchen is fully stocked with all kinds of spices, oils etc. We even ended up baking an apple crisp with local Gravenstein apples, and all we had to provide was the apples! Plus the wine refrigerator, great for after your tastings.
You can enjoy a great video library, or relax in the hot tub. There are books for looking at and books for reading. The house is stocked with enough games and puzzles to keep you busy.
I can't think how we could have felt more at home. It was a great stay, and we enjoyed every second. We only wish it could have been longer.

Home Away From Home and Much More

I took my hubby and my two kids (9 & 5) to this amazing home and we will definitely be back. The bird feeder outside the kitchen window was a hit for my kiddos, but for me, Nikki maintains a fully stocked, beautiful home with an enviable gourmet kitchen! For the first time ever, my hubby didn't want to leave, even after 5 days of being away from home. The beachy feel of the home and the stunning views help you to feel like you were meant to live on the coast. Despite what many believe, Bodega Bay and the surrounding areas offer much to do: Anderson Tall Trees, Ziplining through the forest, Trout Fishing (for the kids especially), hiking, and of course the beach! Many lasting memories were made last week!

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

Notes:
The house main living space is upstairs from the entry of the house. There are approximately 12 to 15 steps up to the main part of the house. There are hand rails but no wheelchair access. If you are an elderly person in good health you should have no problems. I would caution families with small children, this house is not child proof.
