Gorgeously styled bungalow overlooking Bodega Harbor, walk to town - dogs OK!

Newly updated in impeccable modern style, this home in Bodega Bay is a true surfer's paradise, offering beautiful views of Bodega Harbor from its large picture windows. The property, owned and meticulously decorated by avid surfers, is ideally situated across the road from the bay and within walking distance of the town's many shops and restaurants. Amenities like central heat will keep everyone comfortable. At this bungalow, you'll spend your days surfing, beachcombing, and fishing, and come home to a light-filled living space, a wood-burning stove, and an enclosed garden where you can relax, light the grill, and talk about the day's adventures.

What’s nearby:
Surfer's Paradise is located in the heart of beautiful Bodega Bay, just a short stroll from shops, local seafood restaurants, recreational outfitters, and an assortment of art galleries. You can easily go hiking on the Coastal Prairie Trail (one mile north) and have a picnic under the trees; there's even a wheelchair-friendly path with a lovely view of the coastal prairie. Golfers can tee off at the Links at Bodega Harbour (two miles south), a challenging Scottish-style course with spectacular ocean views, as the surfers in your group head to North and South Salmon Creek Beaches (two miles north), both of which are popular with the local surfing community.

We loved everything about the cottage, the owners did a very nice job and thought of everything you could possibly want. It's a really special place and we absolutely loved the view!

House is close to everything with very cute yard and great view

Excellent home, wonderful views! Clean and comfortable. We would stay here again. Love Bodega!

The house was stylish, so clean and inviting. Loved the fenced-in yard for our kids and dog. Gorgeous view. We will definitely be visiting again. I can’t express how much I loved this home. I wouldn’t change a thing if it were my own.

FYI: while we were there (summer ‘21), home did not have a microwave. We were able to make due just fine, but a few groceries we brought had to be improvised - just something to keep in mind while meal planning, especially with kids ;)

We very much enjoyed our 3-night stay with our family of 3. Surfer's Paradise is a small, quaint house in a great location a couple blocks away from 2 convenience stores and the best fish & chips I've ever had (at The Birds). And a 5 minute drive to Doran Beach so you can get there early and grab parking.

The house is minimalistic and not overly cluttered with unnecessary things, which we appreciated over some places we've stayed with too much stuff. The rooms are spacious and each have their own bathroom. The kitchen is spacious as well and living and dining room overlook an amazing view of the bay where you can find sea lions and birds playing in the water and see the tide coming in each day. The bedding is some of the most comfortable we've slept in. The backyard is small but nice with a sitting area and grill. The only thing that's missing is a deck in the front to sit outside overlooking the water.

Although there isn't a lot to do in Bodega Bay in general, if you're looking for a relaxing weekend getaway not far from the city, this is the perfect option.

We loved everything about the cottage! It has all been redone and is modern and tastefully decorated. The beds are comfy and have super nice linens. There are so many extra touches that give it great style. The cottage was super clean which is always #1 on my list. We loved hiking along the coast and enjoyed crab sandwiches and clam chowder at Spuds Point Crab Co as well as fish tacos right around the corner from the cottage at The Birds Cafe. Terrapin Creek always serves delicious food. Can’t wait to rent the cottage again!

Absolutely loved this cottage! It was perfect for us and our toddler to spend a few days, comes stocked with everything you could need for a beach getaway!

Surfers Paradise was a perfect place to stay, to surf, to go on hikes, to eat great food, to relax. The kitchen had everything we needed to make meals at home (including awesome cookbooks!), the view from the living room and kitchen is beautiful and inspiring, the bedrooms and bathrooms are comfortable, well designed and clean.
The house itself has beautiful attention to design and details, including an outdoor shower to rinse off the sand.
If you don't want to cook, there is fantastic pizza place within walking distance called Huria's. We walked Doran Beach with our dog every day. We highly recommend Surfers Paradise and hope to be back soon!

My husband and I loved staying here. We felt like the owners had renovated it to the standards as if they were going to live there, with thoughtful details everywhere. The kitchen has excellent appliances and is well laid out. The VIEW, omg, the view is nature's TV. I enjoyed sitting out on the back patio and journaling in the morning and then going to the nearby coastal parks. This was a great little getaway. Word of advice - if you come out this way, bring groceries with you or go grocery shopping in Sebastopol because the little "grocery stores" here are nothing more than glorified overpriced convenience stores.

This place was awesome. Very clean and comfortable. Nice amenities for a great stay. Didn’t take our dogs but they would have loved the yard.
The only problem was finding the entrance but the next door neighbor was very helpful. One thing I would suggest is instructions on the tv remote my husband got frustrated😜.
Other than that it was awesome 👏.

My mother, sister and I enjoyed several nights at this cute house. It has fantastic views of the bay. We watched birds diving into the water for fish. There are many great beaches nearby for walking. Can’t wait to return.

Overall, the house is very nice. Soft mattresses. Great view of the bay. Full kitchen. Great bbq in the backyard. Beautiful fixtures. Pet friendly. There are a few things missing like toilet paper holders and coffee pot (French press provided) To get to the front door is okay but if you have mobility issues not so easy.
Rachel S. Aug 2020
Loved this place. Felt like we were at home but more comfortable! Great views and wonderful location. Hope to return soon!
Allison P. Aug 2020
This house was exactly what we were looking for -- clean, fun, well stocked, and centrally located. We will be back!
Meghan M. Jul 2020
We loved our time staying in this lovely cottage. The view of the bay blew us away and the spacious rooms were stocked with everything we needed for our little getaway. We also popped down to San Francisco for a day trip since we were conveniently located just over an hour away. We will definitely be back!

This home was beautiful and we really enjoyed our stay. It had everything you would need and it was very comfortable. It was cute and cozy too! We felt like it smelled like dog and also there was some dog hair on the floor that was missed. Also, we didn’t see any boogie board that was in the description. But those were just minor details. All in all, great place to stay!
