Nice, but could have been better
I have rented several home with VRBO and I have stayed and visited Bodega Bay many times over the past 25 years. We love it there. We were looking for a 3-4 knight stay to include Christmas, and we found one. It looked like a good fit for me, my husband and two kids.
Two Bedroom, two bath, big kitchen with dinning table, living room and deck with BBQ. The only thing it was missing was a hot tub, but we would manage ;-)
Communication with the "Owners" was almost none and it was very impersonal! I never got a name and only got a phone number the day before my arrival. I asked if they could call me so we could work out some details and answer some questions that I had, but never received one.
The home is actually located in the "Marina" that owns the mobile home park, RV spaces for rent, a couple more homes for rent and a couple restaurants. I was never "officially" welcomed, it was weird and unlike any other home stay I have had in the past. I am not high maintenance and like my privacy, but I felt if something went wrong or I really needed something - I had no idea where to turn or what kind of response time I was looking at.
The home suited us perfectly and it was nice being right in the middle of Bodega Bay with a restaurant out our front door.
Only draw back, one of the employees from the restaurant, took his very frequent "smoke breaks" on our retaining wall, below our deck! Strange & uncomfortable. Plus he left his cigarette butts on the homes property- Owners need to look into that.
Couldn't have asked for better weather, considering it was the end of December.
Only other odd thing- Which we were not made aware of ahead of time, was the restaurant next door, used the bottom half of the house (garage) for their dry good storage- Which they entered at least once a day! It kinda scared us the first time, like "who is getting into the house?"
Would have been nice to know, it could have been included in the small details of our contract.
All and All, I would stay here again, although it would not be my first choice.
Our stay was amazing. The house is beautifully decorated. When we walked in we went "Ahhhhhh". Everything listed on the site was exactly how it was at the house. My car broke down but because I was staying at "Delight by the Sea" I was still able to relax. I strongly recommend that stay at this house.
We are going to stay again. Thanks to all the staff at Porto Bodega you guys are wonderful.
Delightful and comfortable
Our experience was very good indeed. Upon arriving, my thought was that the exterior was very plain, not remarkable looking, but upon opening the door I was pleasantly surprised. The furniture was leather and looked as if it was new and the appliances in the kitchen were high end. Bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and comfortable. I would definitely stay there again if I were vacationing in the area. The staff was very courteous and helpful in finding whatever was needed.
Delight by the Sea was a Delight
The two bedrooms are very comfortable. It's great hearing the sounds of the small adjacent harbor as you are going to sleep. All appliances and fixtures are very modern. It looks like the place has recent been built (or remodeled). Very centrally located to the shops in Bodega Bay. Would definitely stay again!
Peaceful and restful stay
My family stayed in this brand new home for 3 days and it was lovely. Clean, new, modern, cozy... perfect refuge for us. We would definitely stay again and recommend this home to others.
