About Anne Roberts
Joe & I have always been drawn to the magic and mesmerizing motion of the ocean. Whether hiking, dining or choosing a vacation spot we love being by the ocean. We now are lucky enough to have our own "slice of paradise" on the rugged Northern California Coast. Inspired by our kids and the love of enjoying adventures together we searched the coast for a one-of-a-kind property that would fit the needs of our family and friends. We found it in Timber Cove. We are the couple who thrive on entertaining and providing a nurturing, relaxing experience for family and friends. When we are surrounded by others having a good time it puts us at ease. We also enjoy maintaining our home and finding ways to increase our enjoyment of it and ultimately yours if you choose to stay in Isle of View. So how did we come up with the name "Isle of View"? When Joe & I were dating in the early '80's, I was still in college at UW-Madison while he was working in Emeryville, CA (Yes, that is another story)! Before cell phones, even computers...we relied on the U.S. postal service and the phone for staying in touch. Joe sent me an album by Jimmie Spherris with the name Isle of View. When we were talking on the phone after I received it he asked me to say the title quickly. It turns into I Love You! We did and we still do! That original album is in a frame hanging on a wall in the house. It won't take you long to find it.
Anne Roberts purchased this House in 2007
Why Anne Roberts chose Jenner
Everyone looks for a truly unique property. One that speaks to them and makes them feel better...physically and mentally. We have had people who know something about geology visit and they have said there is something about the minerals in the surrounding rock that put off a positive energy at our location. You truly feel better in this refreshing environment. This is a rare oceanfront property west of Highway One. As you pass through Bodega Bay you wind your way along the coast among the cows (yes, along the road - or even on it!) and distance yourself from civilization. Every stress melts away as you get closer to Isle of View. We have always LOVED sunsets and with this unique property we enjoy both the sunrise and a spectacular sunset. One of the top properties on the coast!
What makes this House unique
Simply put it is rejuvenating, relaxing and refreshing to experience time at Isle of View. The floorplan allows plenty of space to get away from it all or if you come as a couple or alone you can close off half the house and feel comfortable in the main areas and the master bedroom. The house can be made to feel large or cozy. You choose. The split cormorant rock in front of the living room window offers dramatic ocean scenes as the waves crash over and through the rock formations. The island is continuously inhabited by seals and nesting seabirds providing endless private wildlife viewing.

Amazing family stay
We had a lovely time at isle of view! So secluded and peaceful. The views are unparalleled! Just the getaway we needed with family.
The only reason we rated 4 star for cleanliness was Bc there was an ant invasion (in the bathrooms) during our stay. Not the owners fault as they are actively working to get rid of them.
Better than the photos
Views, views, views! It’s just perfect. We loved disconnecting and just relaxing.
Stunning Views with all the amenities
This home sits atop one of the most spectacular coves on the Sonoma Coast, with breathtaking views in any weather! From bird watching to hiking, to resting there is no better location. Home is appointed well with plenty of living and sleeping space.
I’m so glad you enjoyed a nice retreat at Isle of View. I hope we can host you again.
Superb views of crashing waves, seabirds, and craggy rock formations. Well-stocked kitchen perfect for cooking for a crowd. House is very clean with cozy, plentiful seating and superb beds!
Thank you for your review. I’m glad you enjoyed all that Isle of View has to offer. We look forward to hosting you again.
Secluded Get Away
The pictures do not do this beautiful view and home justice! It is the most beautiful ocean side home we have stayed in. If you are in for a secluded vacation away with peace and quiet except for the ocean waves and crash against boulders this is your place! We wanted a place to go to enjoy our new grandson and allow his Uncle to get to know him. Be aware this is for those who are not looking for the active vacation out on the town. Gorgeous drive up to the home and incredible views all around. There is wine tasting nearby that we enjoyed and our one night out was at the River's End Restaurant which we would highly recommend. No cell service but if you can use calling through the internet that is available. We were not able to all get online on our computers at once. My children thought it must be that we were on computers since more bandwidth is needed in that case. Two computers and a few phones were on at once. Since our goal was to visit, relax, play games and enjoy this incredible home and views, this was not a loss for us. The wildlife was fun to see as well. We saw dear, a fox, quail family and tons of birds flying outside of our window. It even seemed to us that the birds were checking us out. There is a nice outdoor area and the sunset is incredible. We tried to hike down to a beach but with a baby, it was difficult. There were several beaches along the way though if you can navigate the terrain. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to get away.
Thank you for your thoughtful review. I’m so glad you found the respite and family reunion you were looking for at Isle of View. River’s End is one of our favorite restaurants on the coast. With regard to the wifi, we have the largest bandwidth currently available in the area.
Wonderful Home in a Perfect setting!
Breathtaking views from this spectacular home!
We had an awesome time!
I’m so glad you enjoyed your vacation. We hope we get the pleasure of hosting you again.
