Owner Response to guest stay on 2/17/14
Thank you for your valuable and candid suggestions,
First, a little background information about our home,
Yes, as you point out, the views are "truly fantastic." In fact, there are only two vacation rental homes in the Harbour community that I am aware of that are this close to Bodega Bay with unobstructed views, views from Tomales Bay & Point Reys to Bodega Bay & the harbour. The two main reasons we bought the house a couple of years ago were these views & that the house was designed the 70's by one of our favorite architects, Carson Bowler. Carson Bowler designed homes up & down the Northern California Coast; he liked to use materials found locally. We liked the native stone used in the two fireplaces, clear heart redwood used on interior walls, as well as cedar shingles used to cover the exterior of the house. So, we set put to find furniture that complemented this house &/or were from that period.
We have gone to a lot of time & expense to find solid wood furniture from that era, including butcher-block coffee table & end tables to match the galley kitchen counters, solid teak living room chairs & dining table, as well as solid oak captain's chairs for the dining area.
Now, on to your suggestions:
Our management company, Bodega Bay Escapes, has a five star rating & would be more than happy to provide towels for any extra guests as well as extra towels if you need them-all that is needed is to call them, & they will be right over for any issues you might have.
Full sets of new linens & pillows were purchased; old sets eliminated from use.
A new faucet & drain were installed in the bathroom downstairs; so, the issues with the water are gone.
We will keep the solid wood furniture that goes with the Carson Bowler style home of that era in the living & dining room, but continue to look for matching solid wood bedroom furniture.
A new vanity light fixture to replace the non-repairable old one was purchased & will be installed before the next guests arrive.
The cleaning staff did a thorough cleaning of the carpets as well as dusted & eliminated cobwebs.
Again, thanks for your suggestions,
The Owners of Zee Link
Recently, we have done a lot of work on our other vacation rental, Cliff Cottage-greatly enhanced the sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean from Bodega Head to the mouth of the Russian River, re-landscaped the front yard into a lovely garden, & installed: a forced-air gas furnace, a gas fireplace insert, & a tank-less water heater.
