    My family and I loved this get away! It was a short walk to the beautiful beaches, as well as a short drive to all beaches. The house is equipped with everything you need. I did not check for pots and pans because we didn’t cook this time. There is food a short drive away and you can also shop before hand to cook at the house. We good a charcoal bbq as well. This layout was perfect for us and our adult children, we had board games, card games, a telescope and the beauty of deer and ocean views, as well as TV use. We did more connecting without the TVs. I only wished there was outside games and a hot tub. Regardless, we would definitely book again!! A great start to our new year 2023!!

    We love Bodega Bay and the location of this home is wonderful. The home is welcoming. The deer came to visit often. Great if you plan on eating out, not so great if you want to cook. Bring your own pots and a frying pan. Unfortunately for us the outside garbage and recycling hadn’t been emptied in quite some time. Filled to the brim and the stench was horrible. Also, a diaper was left in one of the bedroom garbages and other housekeeping flaws made the start of our weekend less than perfect.
    Manager response:
    We have spoken with housekeeping regarding the oversights you encountered so we can ensure they don't happen again. Thank you!

    This is by far the nicest rental we’ve ever had, from cleanliness to coziness to accessibility to the gorgeous Portuguese Beach. We walked each day to the stairs leading to the beach, truly almost paradise. The kitchen had everything you need, not the stereotypical one knife but no cutting board. We bought cooked crabs and made use of the family set of seafood utensils. Board games—so many and with all the pieces! What a joy we had. We hope to stay next year, too!

    Plenty of parking space. The Views of the ocean were great. Weather the first two days was fabulous. At night there was just enough room to stick eight people around the table for Mexican Train or some of the strange card games our family plays. A good time was had by all.

    Lovely home, and accommodations, near the ocean, with a couple adequate views!
    Angela F. Sep 2022
    This home is in a beautiful spot with a short walk to the beach. A major highlight was seeing the deer right off of the main deck and the cows in the back field! It’s very cozy and comfortable. Leaving 3 stars only for a few issues that are being sent to the owners directly and will hopefully be resolved.
    Manager response:
    Thank you for giving us the opportunity to hear your feedback about your time with us, Angela! We appreciate you bringing this to our attention so that we can take appropriate measures to implement improvements. Rest assured that we will follow up with our local team regarding your feedback. Please know that our Guest Services team is available 24 hours a day to assist should any questions or concerns arise prior to arrival or during your stay. Thanks for staying with us, we look forward to hosting you again!

    This house is about a 5 minute walk to the beach!
    The house is comfortable with the exception of the presence of mice. Every item of food must be sealed and in the refrigerator or a closed cabinet. Even then there were mouse turds on the counter, couch and elsewhere each morning.
    Also there were exposed electrical wires making it unsafe for children in particular. Vacasa was notified about both of these issues. Hopefully the next guest will not have either to contend with.
    Manager response:
    Hello Dorene, thank you for your feedback. While we are happy you were able to enjoy the views at this property, we are deeply saddened to hear of your experience. We sincerely apologize for any unwanted critters you encountered during your stay with us and appreciate you identifying this area in need of attention. We have passed your comments along to the HOA, which provides pest control services for the property, to review and address. We take guest feedback seriously and have forwarded this information to the local staff so they can review and update the home as needed for future guests. We will be sure to follow up with the appropriate parties regarding your experience and truly hope we can host you for a more comfortable stay in the future, thank you.

    During the night we saw mice in the kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms.
    We could hear the mice in our luggage and purse.
    The mice got into our food, they were in the silverware drawer, they pooped in the bed on the sheets, on the clean towels, on the couch and other furniture.
    There were mouse droppings everywhere.
    We had 8 people staying there.
    Six people left early.
    The 2 people that stayed couldn’t use the kitchen or eat the food we brought.
    We called for help, but did not get any assistance while staying there.
    Manager response:
    Janice, we sincerely apologize for the issue you experienced that kept you from enjoying your stay. Our local manager assured us he spoke to you and we hope the compensation you received helped alleviate some of your frustration. Since your stay, the home has been inspected and found to be well-sealed and it has been thoroughly treated. Additionally, ongoing services will be provided to ensure our guests' comfort. We appreciate your feedback and we hope to have the opportunity to host you again and provide a relaxing getaway in the future.

    This was the perfect home for our family and our pups. We loved the views of the ocean and hills, got to see a ton of different birds, even saw a family of 3 owls and a family of deer walk right by the house each morning. The beaches are so close it was heaven. We will definitely be back again in the future!
    Ann H. Jun 2022
    Kitchen was well stocked, new patio furniture with cushions were very nice, lots of towels - beach and bath, had a BBQ that wasn't listed in amenities. Very nice views, somewhat obstructed by new house construction which was a bit noisy. No TV in the living room was odd, but that encouraged us to play games instead of watch TV. Nice neighborhood and nice to be able to walk to the beach.

    The Beach is only walking distance

    This beautiful property was the perfect setting for us to rest and recover following the passing of a loved one.

    Not a lot. The view. Very dangerous and unsafe conditions exist in this run down dated rental. Sure code enforcement would love to know about them.
    Manager response:
    David, thank you for sharing your feedback and bringing some items to our attention that may need some TLC. We have forwarded your feedback to the local staff so they can work to improve the house for future guests. We hope to have another opportunity to impress you. Thank you!

    The location and the home in general were great. There were some issues inside the home, such as "slats" missing on blinds in livingroom and middle bedroom, cracked lamp that did not work, lights with missing/burntout bulbs just to note a few. There were limited replacement supplies (toilet paper, paper towels and only one trashbag for the kitchen trash can-no replacement). I reached out to VACASA and was told if no others could be found then I'd have to supply myself. I've been renting vacation homes for 15+ years and NEVER have I had an issue/response like this. I am very dissatisfied with VACASA even though the home was quite comfortable in most aspects. I'll look more closely at who is managing properties in the future.
    Manager response:
    Thank you for your feedback, Deb. We are happy to hear that the location worked out well for you. We do apologize for any confusion surrounding what is supplied in the home. To clarify, we provide our guests with a starter kit that includes cleaning supplies, toiletries, and paper products. Once these run out it is the responsibility of our guests to provide any additional supplies throughout the remainder of their stay. We apologize for any inconvenience this caused. We also apologize for any maintenance issues that you encountered and will work with the owner to make any needed upgrades and repairs. Thank you for bringing these suggestions to our attention. We hope to host you again in the future!

    Nice quiet neighborhood, easy walk to beach and beautiful sunsets. House was comfortable but could use some updates.
    Joy F. Oct 2021
    Loved this house for our girls trip. We are around 70 and one who had a stroke. The house was easy access for all. Beds and pillows were super comfortable. Loved the decks overlooking the ocean. Very quiet. Would definitely recommend

    This house used to be in our family It was great for all the memories
    Jeanette D. Oct 2021
    Views from every room. Gorgeous trees , wonderful views, walk to beach..
    Barbara P. Sep 2021
    Bring your own towels and all paper products. The ones here are totally inadequate. Thin, non-absorbent. Useless. No tv in the main room. With 7 people it was unacceptable. Heating works well and house stays warm. All beds were comfortable. Kitchen is well stocked. Outdoor furniture not meant for relaxing. Ocean view was beautiful. We won’t be coming back.
    Manager response:
    Thank you, Barbra, for your feedback regarding your stay. We are truly sorry for the inconveniences caused by our starter kit of supplies given and the location of the televisions. We will ensure our property manager is notified for review and updates, including the outdoor furniture. We truly hope for another opportunity to host you for a more enjoyable stay!
