Bayfront home w/ great views, high-speed WiFi, private washer/dryer, & balcony

Boasting superb views and great style, this bayfront getaway is offered to guests for the first time since it was originally built! This well-maintained vacation rental is located on a quiet cul-de-sac overlooking Bodega Harbor with water views south to Tomales Bay. Step through the front door and into the great room that includes a well-equipped full kitchen with new appliances, a dining area with a table for eight, a cozy living area with comfortable furnishings, a wood-burning fireplace, flatscreen TV, vaulted exposed-beam ceilings, period lighting, and access to the furnished wraparound balcony with a private Weber Genesis gas grill. For sleeping arrangements, you'll find two bedrooms on the upper level with queen-size beds, flatscreen TVs, and blackout shades. Take the stairs down to the main suite with expansive views of the bay, a sitting area with a sit/stand desk and chair, a queen-size bed, flatscreen TV, and blackout shades. Come live the coast lifestyle!

What's nearby:
Wake up to spectacular sunrises while deer, wild turkeys, hummingbirds, and quail visit the property and flocks of pelicans soar over the bay. Relax or do some surfing at one of the Sonoma Coast's many beautiful beaches including Salmon Creek and Doran Regional Park, a five-minute drive away. Explore the tidepools and watch for whales at Bodega Head, go horseback riding, or head out on the water in a kayak or SUP. And the harbor is ideal for fishing, crabbing, and clamming, while charters can be arranged through the marina. Additionally, visiting golfers can tee off at the Links at Bodega Harbour, only four miles from your door.

When it's time to dine, take a short walk down to Spud Point Crab Company or Fisherman's Cove, both less than a mile south, for some of the best chowder and crab in the area, or grab a glass of vino and a flatbread pizza from Gourmet Au Bay, one mile east. If you want to go a bit more upscale, Sonoma Coast Vineyards' tasting room, the Tides, and Drake's are all a short drive away, while the freshest oysters can be found at places like Bodega Bay Oyster Company, Nick's Cove, Hog Island Oyster Company, and the Marshall Store. And consider a tour of the hundreds of Sonoma wineries including Russian River AVA!

Great Location to Bodega Head, Beaches and Bodega Harbor. The large Great Room with Kitchen and Dining area allowed all the family and friends to enjoy the amazing view. Was nice to have a large separated Master Suite/Primary Bedroom downstairs; with spectacular views of the bay. Both of the two secondary bedrooms are upstairs that share the common bathroom. Enjoyed the mornings and evening sitting on the wrap around deck to capture that very relaxing vibe that Bodega offers. The home was SUPER clean and had modern updated tasteful decor. All the extras available in this home were appreciated, though we did not use: games, books, very well equipped kitchen, beach towels and beach chairs, etc. Loved the Stocked Laundry room right off the kitchen. We felt totally at home and comfortable and looking forward to coming back for a Girls weekend. Only Con: There was construction noise all day long across the street, but that can't be helped by this house and doesn't affect our rating at all. Location Note: This home is walking distance down a hill to some of the nearby eateries: Spud Point -Yummy Clam Chowder, Fisherman's Cove that have the BEST Halibut Tacos!!! After a long day at the beach and a hike, remember to get the delicious take-out food early as most restaurant in Bodega Area Close Earlier than usual. Can't wait to come back to BAY WATCH in Sonoma County.

Such a fabulous stay with breathtaking views from the main living room and main bedroom downstairs - exactly what I was hoping for when I booked this home. Clean, modern and restrained decor with all of the necessities made this home easy and comfortable to move into. Can’t wait to return!

This was a perfect home base for our family's recent visit to Bodega Bay and greater western Sonoma County. Comfortable living and sleeping, well-stocked kitchen for dinners in and wall-to-wall views. Downstairs suite is perfect for quiet work/nap escape when rest of the house is bustling.

My god I don't where to begin about this beautiful house!

The view is stunning on both floors. The house is beautifully appointed and updated. A lot of thought went into the furnishing of the house. FYI - there is a brand new frig. The house has heating controls in every room, which is important when you are on the coast. There is also a TV in every room, which is important when you have a lot of people in the house! Finally, there are two water heaters, one on each floor!

Did I mention the view?

On the downside-the stairs downstairs are very steep. There is another set of stairs outside that go to the lower floor. There isn't much storage in the master. The master is lacking in decor , however the bed has the most beautiful view! Who needs anything else?

We had a wonderful 7 day stay and look forward to coming back next year!!!!!!

The Baywatch house was very clean and comfortable. It was perfect for our group.
Chris B. May 2021
The views were great. The house was clean and well stocked. The kids had a great time with the games and playing in the ocean. Coffee maker didn't work too well, but we figured it out.
Samuel W. Apr 2021
We loved the combination living room, dining room and kitchen with spectacular views of of Bodega Bay. This was a great place to stay. Definitely recommend it. Gave it four starts because the management company rejected our request for a late check-out, and no one was coming in after us. We thought they could have given us an extra hour or two.
Manager response:
Hi Samuel! Thank you for your feedback. We are happy to hear that you had an enjoyable stay. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by our not being able to accommodate a late check-out. Currently, we cannot offer late check-out to any of our guests due to our COVID-19 cleaning procedures and CDC regulations. Late check-out is never a guaranteed option for our guests and is only offered during non-covid times. Thank you for understanding!

This home was a delight to stay in during the last few days. We enjoyed the view of the bay with all the wildlife and fishing boats going in and out of the harbor. We definitely will return again one day.

We loved our stay.
Veronika T. Nov 2020
We loved this house! Spacious, sparkling clean, with a breathtaking view from both the living room and the downstairs bedroom. It is only a few minutes of car ride away from several beautiful beaches, in a quiet, walkable cul-de-sac. The house is very thoughtfully furnished and equipped with everything we needed, from stepstool to a meat thermometer. Two bedrooms are on the same level as the living room, one downstairs with its own bathroom and sitting area. It even has an office area with a desk and natural light in case someone has to get some work done. We especially loved the fully equipped kitchen that had all the tools, gadgets and appliances, from instant pot to mixer to serving platters, everything we needed to cook a festive meal. Thumbs up!

Beautiful home with a great view of the bay -- you can spend hours watching the humming birds hang at the feeder -- we're SO happy we chose this home. Home was adequately stocked and very clean. It's not too far from the oceans and has great nearby restaurants that doo takeout. 10/10 would book again.
