Sereno del Mar Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 4 Sleeps(twins in open loft)

Welcome to our brand new remodel for the 'Ultimate Pacific Coast Surf Experience'. The photo's will depict views from the property and the brand newly remodeled and furnished interior. The cottage is truly the most adorable place with a mix of coastal and state of the art touches.

PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT a wedding destination location.

We unfortunately cannot accept reservations for wedding parties, pre or post wedding or social gatherings.

The beach cottage 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 spiral staircase up to the loft, raked ceiling and coastal decor enhancing the beach house ambiance. Comforting neutrals, warm whites and current pops of fun color punctuate the decor. Driftwood effect ceramic floors, quartz counter tops and nautical theme accessories carry the beach cottage essence throughout.

The Pacific, west facing beach cottage 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 20 foot wide wall of pacific facing windows is comfortably furnished with a beautiful glass pebble, flame effect fireplace and a wall mounted flat screen TV with DVD player. Internet, free US and Canada long distance phone and an I-home are supplied for your convenience.

Dining for four at a table set in a corner window with views to both west and up the coast to the north, absolutely breath taking! All electric kitchen appliances: fast glass top range, and small appliances. And new quartz counter tops. 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.

Attention to detail for your comfort continues throughout. Plenty of brand new towels, linens, comforters (with duvet covers) and quilts. All the mattresses and pillows have protectors and high quality pads.

We have designed and furnished the Seamist beach cottage 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.

Why Gay Jardine chose Bodega Bay

This property is a find in a million! You just don't come by a gem like Seamist 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

Semi Priivate beach stairs. Semi Private beach stairs and secluded beach.

(PLEASE NOTE: Sorry, this is not a wedding destination location and we cannot host your wedding, pre or post wedding guests or hold your function)

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. 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. ALL YOU CAN HEAR IS THE SURF!

Great little place to relax and reflect...

  • 5 of 5

Loved my time at the Seamist. Really is a chance to watch the ocean up close and get some brisk fresh air. Everything was comfortable and clean. I thought the bed was very comfortable, and pillows, linens, etc. Kitchen was stocked fairly well too. There was some road noise and lights in the front bedroom, but I still slept well. Be aware, the spiral staircase up to the 2 twins is tiny, and no bathroom up there... glad I didn't have to try to manage that in the middle of the night. Also the tub/shower is very deep and a little difficult to get into but it works well once you're in. Parking, and backing out, is a challenge, but that just goes with the area (being that it's right on a very desirable coast cliff where everyone wants to be). Also, the local manager was most friendly and helpful, as was the whole booking process. All in all.... I'd be ready to go back again in a heartbeat!!

Spectacular slice of heaven on earth!

  • 5 of 5

The view was unbelievably breathtaking, I couldn't soak it up enough! Our only regret is not buying food to make at the cottage, cause we never wanted to leave that view! The cottage is also beautiful with all the necessities, comfortable & cozy, the fireplace was exquisite & romantic! Everything was beyond expectations & we cannot wait to come back! This is a hidden gem you just have to see to believe! The owners were very easy to get in contact with & followed up with any & all concerns. Overall simply outstanding place & customer service.

I Love you Seamist Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Dear Gay and Doug, thank you so very much for sharing your beautiful beach cottage with us! Every single detail was perfect and we wanted to stay forever! The cottage was immaculate. We slept well in the comfortable bed with its crisp linens and cozy covers. The bathroom was spotless and the hot shower refreshing. The kitchen is so cute! We appreciated the neat organization and nice appliances. Last but not least, the ocean view is absolutely spectacular! Our favorite thing was sitting on the deck watching the seabirds, a fishing boat, dolphins and the sunset. WOW! So beautiful. So private. So quiet except for the waves. Also, Sonoma County is one of our favorite places. We enjoyed wine tasting across the county and seafood at The Tides Wharf in Bodega Bay and Rivers End in Jenner. Hope to visit you again, Seamist Cottage!!!

Great place. Clean, private, well stocked with incidentals and any questions we had, Jim was a phone call away and he answered the phone :) Which we only had one question about recycling. Gay and Doug are really sweet and the transaction to rent at the Seamist was easy. Décor was beachy comfy with no stuffiness. Fireplaces to take the chill out in the AM while we enjoyed our coffee and breakfast in a nicely done kitchen. Bird watching gallery, no need for television. Television was easy to work and I liked the little clock radio to listen to some classical music as I was lying in a comfy bed reading and checking my emails (once in a while) throughout our stay. Shower had awesome water pressure and hot water. Rules clearly spelled out in a binder to keep us informed with any questions we may have had about the place. The VIEW outstanding! We were able to people watch from the deck at the beach below. The Seamist was in a good location with easy access to local fare like, Porteguese Beach, Bodega Bay, Tide Warf, Spud Point and Bodega Bay Surf shop. Many farm fresh fruits stands on the little winding roads we had traveled. Hope anyone reading this review picks this sweet spot because that's how I found it ;)

Owner's Response: Hi Aileen, thanks so much for your wonderful review! We really try hard and maintain the cottage on a regular basis for our visitors. It's always good to hear from guests who appreciate Seamist and her amazing location! We want to try and make things as comfortable and easy for guests as we can. We have stayed at other VRBO's ourselves and have experienced: no paper towels, basic salt /pepper and condiments etc. so we always have them on hand. Jim is always a call away if you need him too! Hope to see you again and remind us for a return guest discount(before you book) Thanks, Gay and Doug

SEAMIST, a BRAND NEW 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. 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 Seamist 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.

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