About the property

2 Bedroom 2 Bathroom Beach House With Private Stairs To Secluded Beach.

Welcome you to our beach house (remodeled in 2013) for the 'Ultimate Pacific Coast Surf Experience'. The photo's will depict views from the property and display the beautiful new interior.

PLEASE NOTE: This home is not a wedding destination or a venue for gatherings. We cannot accept pre or post wedding gatherings.

6 guests maximum at all times. Thank you!

(Check-in: 4PM Check-out 11AM)

The beach house is built on the bluff over looking a spectacular show of nature at her best. You will have your own private stairs down to a sheltered, secluded beach. You can have beach fun and family time exploring tide pools or a romantic, quiet picnic...Just the two of you and the ocean.

The design and construction team have kept the integrity of the seaside property with it's planked walls and raked ceiling, enhancing the beach house ambiance. Comforting neutrals, warm whites and current pops of fun color punctuate the decor. Driftwood effect ceramic floors, quartz counters and nautical theme accessories carry the beach house flavor throughout.

The Pacific, west facing beach house allows you to view the surf at all times and enjoy the most breath taking sunsets, crashing surf, sea mist and bold rugged rock formations.

The great room with it's 35 foot wide wall of pacific facing windows is comfortably furnished with a fireplace and a wall mounted flat screen t.V. With DVD player. Internet, free us and Canada long distance phone and an i home are supplied for your convenience.

Dining for four at the antique table with it's captain's chairs, or at the large quartz peninsula.

All electric kitchen appliances: fast glass top range, and small appliances. Generous quartz counter work space in neutral tones and plenty of cabinet space with ambiance lighting for enhanced cooking and entertaining experience. The kitchen is well appointed for enjoying home cooked faire. Why go out when you can have the best ocean view in town with the surf as your back ground music! Enjoy your cracked crab and chardonnay at sunset with your family or special other.

Two king bedrooms and two bathrooms: the countryside facing room has views of peaceful bucolic rolling hills and a red farmhouse with it's barn. To add to your comfort we have installed a wall mounted fireplace to keep the chill off and a T.V.. It has a large en suite with a tub and shower combo. The second king has a Pacific Ocean and farm view, a wall mounted fireplace and T.V.. A quaint shower bathroom with a quartz vanity services this king room.

Attention to detail for your comfort continues throughout. Plenty of brand new towels, linens, comforters (with duvet covers) and quilts. Memory foam toppers on both beds. All the mattresses and pillows have protectors and high quality pads. Two folding futon pads for extra two guest(ideal for kids and teens)

If you need more room for extended family or friends we can offer the 'Little Sister Cottage' next door: Seamist Cottage. She is our newly remodeled one bedroom/bath with a sleeping loft/two twins. Seamist is a smaller version of Surfscape with all the great attention to detail and comfort.

We have designed and furnished the Surfscape Beach House to create a memorable and wonderful experience that will leave you rested, renewed and ready to return again and again!

We look forward to your visit.

About Gay Jardine

We are a design and construction team with a lot of energy! We love taking something and turning it around. Our vacation rentals and guests are important to us and we enjoy our work. We also have other properties that have been a success and enjoyed by many.

Gay Jardine purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Gay Jardine chose Bodega Bay

This property is a find in a million! You just don't come by a gem like Surfscape every day. The impact of walking into the cottage and being blown away by the pounding surf right there in your living room was well beyond words!

What makes this cottage unique

Private beach stairs down to a semi secluded beach! Not only do you have an amazing up close ocean view, but, you have access to the beach below. The beach is close to being private with only one other neighbor's staircase.

(PLEASE NOTE: Sorry, but our home is not a wedding destination location. We cannot hold ceremonies, host pre or post wedding get- togethers or social gatherings)

The tide cuts the beach off from either end, but you can still use the beach. The cottage is so close to everything and yet you can feel completely isolated.

Everything We Expected and More

  • 5 of 5

The views from both inside and outside the house are amazing. We enjoyed many hours of exploring the beach just down the stairs. The kitchen was well stocked having everything we needed to cook many family meals. I would agree with a previous recommendation to purchase groceries at a larger town along the way to the house if you plan on doing much cooking. We all enjoyed the comfort of the beds, the supply of books and games and the on demand tv options. The heaters, parking, and internet service were all more than adequate for our needs. We hope to be back in the future!

Views, views, views. Amazing house right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely beautiful. We rent from VRBO quite often and this is the best one yet. Amazing views from any window in the house. The beach views are incredible and the rolling hills view is breath taking. The home is clean, updated, and very well stocked. Even better than the photos imply. We lacked for nothing. The location is perfect, just outside of the town of Bodega Bay. So much to do around the area, but very hard to leave the beauty of the house. Beds were extremely comfortable. Loved the heater/fireplace warmers in both bedrooms, nice and cozy. Plenty of patio chairs for everyone to sit outside if they choose to. Nice private beach. Don't let the other rental on the property defer you, someone was staying there the same time as we were in the Surfscape and we heard nothing. The two cottages are very separate. My only suggestion is to stop at a grocery store (Safeway) on the way and bring as much food in with you. The little markets in Bodega can be rather pricy. We had a wonderful time here and I would definitely recommend this beach cottage. Thank you Doug & Gay for the use of your home, we plan to return!!

Beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

Loved everything about the place. The Internet was down and I didn't have cell service so it was difficult to plan our trip. The local property manager was wonderful by trying to solve the problem, but unfortunately the problem was out of his hands. We will definetly go back.

Natural Beauty

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been coming to the Bodega area each year for the past 25-30 years. We are always looking for the next best ocean front property, and we have found many, but your home had the most spectacular views and its own private beach. The house was well equipped and very comfortable. The only draw back was the limited parking, but we were able to work with it. There are only a few homes that we have rented that we would truly recommend to others, but this is one for sure. The Surfscape Beach House is perfect for a small family or for two couples. We will definitely come back again!

Dramatic views and easy access to the coast

  • 4 of 5

This place is very nice with dramatic views of the coast from the living area. The stairs down to the beach give access to the rocks as well as the creek and beach down the way. It was also nice to look at the idyllic farm and cows across the street. Nice arrangement of the two bedrooms around the common area. Getting out of the driveway is a bit of a challenge however as you are practically on top of the highway and cars come careening down the hill as you try and back out. Also, the Wifi/Internet was intermittent: worked for 15minutes, then went out for a few, came back, repeat.

Wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

The house is as shown...but nothing compares to the real thing. Gorgeous. House was clean, but most pleasant was the prompt and courteous responses from the hosts when we had questions. I wish I could have stayed longer and hope to return again soon.

SURFSCAPE, a recently remodeled beach house is situated on the bluff near Gleasons Beach on the Pacific Ocean, a short 5 mile drive north of Bodega Bay and 7 miles south of Jenner between Salmon Creek and the Russian River in Sonoma County.

(Check-in 4PM- Check-out 11AM)

This Pacific get-away Beach House is unique and one of only a few actually situated on the ocean with it's own private stairs to the beach.

Upon entering Surfscape Beach House you will be astounded at the visual before you...The Pacific Ocean in all her glory. You are so close you can feel her power and will be awestruck. Gulls fly past your 35 feet of wall-to wall, ceiling height windows. Pelicans land on Elephant rock, which punctuates your spectacular view. Enjoy watching migrating whales 'blow' in the distance. You will experience being alone and away from it all with the pounding surf surely as if it was your own!

This area is revered for it's dramatic coastline, famed wineries and lush farmland. For outdoor enthusiasts, hiking trails along Bodega Head, kayaking, local guided tours on Bodega Bay or waiting for the perfect wave at Salmon Creek, Gleasons (walking distance), Portuguese and Wright Beach, all within very close proximity are great ways to get out and enjoy this amazing location. For equestrians: Chancellor Ranch, a short drive away where you can take trails up into the hills or down to the ocean.

The coastal community offers seafood and family style restaurants, beach shops, galleries, saltwater taffy and kite shops, a marina, golfing and a spa.

The Pacific Coast, Sonoma County with it's many attributes is a wonderful location. Just 70 miles from San Francisco and 7 miles south of Jenner and close to the charming little towns: Bodega, Sonoma, Guernville and Duncan Mills.

Surfscape Beach House is an amazing location where you can restore and redefine relaxation.
