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 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.
We have lived most of our lives in Northern California. We call the Sacramento Valley home. Bodega Bay is our 'Happy Place'. We work full time and plan to retire one day to 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. We would celebrate birthdays, holidays and just being able to get away. Our kids are grown now and have fond memories of Bodega Bay trips. We currently live and work in the Sacramento Valley and still enjoy staying at the house as often as we can.
When we first stayed in Southern Exposure we rented it and found it was for sale. At first it seemed too spread out for me. I wanted a house that the kitchen and the living room were closer. Since then I am glad for the spaciousness, 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!
