The Fisherman’s Cottage was perfect for me and my sister’s weekend away! Cute beachy style throughout and well appointed with a full kitchen. Steps to beautiful Salmon Creek beach which is always a wonderful time.

We loved this cozy cottage, it’s beautifully decorated and you couldn’t be closer to the beach. We enjoyed our morning coffee up on top of the crows nest deck, overlooking salmon creek and the waves crashing on the beach. We loved our long walks, sledding down the sand dunes and beach time. Very cozy and comfortable cottage❤️. We’ve already booked our next visit. Looking forward to coming back in December.

Only put a one star review because the house was not kept up on the outside such as the deck, it was rotting. The bbq was not covered and did not work but could smell gas. The cooktop inside was tiny and smelled of gas, made every pot black on the bottom. The master bed was hard and sunken in the middle. The location is an A+ just think some upkeep needs to be done for the money spent to stay there.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Heather. We are so sorry to hear you were disappointed in your time at our home. We have since made sure that there are no gas leaks, and that the propane was replaced recently. We have passed your feedback regarding the deck along to our local manager who will work with the owner to make the necessary updates. We hope to have the opportunity to impress you again very soon!

Everything was really great.

We loved our stay at this charming cottage. It’s located near a wonderful walk along the beach and within a few miles of the shops and restaurants of Bodega Bay. We look forward to visiting again.

At first glance, it's such a cute cottage. The charm and weathered feel of the salt air is abundant.

Inside the house could use some love. Ants all over the house (bummer, but typical of Coastal areas), dirty utensils, and some spots on towels. Based on past reviews we brought our own pots and pan, however I did look at the ones that were provoided and they are really beat up. Lastly, the queen bed was terribly uncomfortable, the kind where you sink down into the middle all night long.
Vacasa was very responsive to our comments and we worked it all out via text. I appreciated thier solution, however some of these things are just the nature of not keeping up with a property.

They did provide plenty of toilet paper and paper towels, we brought our own tin foil and baggies.

Not sure if we would stay again.
Manager response:
Maria, thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We're pleased that you thought our home was charming but we apologize for the concerns that detracted from your stay. We shared your comments with the local manager who assured us that they have addressed the ant issue and have also communicated with housekeeping about any cleanliness details or items missed. We hope that the compensation you received helped alleviate any frustration you felt. We enjoyed having you as our guest and we hope to host you again.

Great location, 2 mins from the beach and well equipped cosy space. Did not anticipate that the owners would be on the premises was the only ding.
Manager response:
Thank you for visiting and sharing your review with us, Declan. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your visit overall, though we are sorry for any concerns. Our local team has been working to make improvements and will speak with the owner. We hope to host you again soon.

Location is perfect, so close to the beach! Nicely furnished. A few sliver views of the creek and beach.

This cottage is the essence of Bodega Bay community as I remember it from childhood before all the big modern homes were built.
Sweet, cozy, clean,quiet and only short walk to a glorious ocean beach.
Would stay again in a heartbeat.
kathleen S. Aug 2022
This cottage is so cute and so close to the beach! We walked the beach several times during our stay and felt very comfortable there. The area has many little homes and it was quiet and peaceful.
Catherine L. Jul 2022

Liked the furnishings and well stocked.
bernadette S. Apr 2022
Loved how close was the ocean, sounds of the ocean, everything about the house & its sourrounding.
Amanda T. Feb 2022
This house was such a pleasant find in Bodega Bay. It was clean, tidy, and so close to the beach you can see it from the dining room window. The location meant we could take morning walks on the beach before spending our days in nearby Occidental, Petaluma, and Sebastopol. I wished we could've stayed the extra night when the trip came to a close.
Leticia M. Feb 2022
We loved the attention to detail and comfort.
Donna O. Jan 2022
Great location by the beach. Cottage had everything we needed.
Natalie D. Dec 2021
Wonderful place to stay. It’s close to the beach. We’ll rent this place again.
Molly S. Nov 2021
We loved all of the outdoor spaces around this sweet house. Made all the difference to have little outdoor nooks to go read a book and drink our morning coffee.
Sally C E. Nov 2021
We very much appreciated the thoughtful organization of the house, with instructions to things evident and clear. Weather was quite overcast and damp on our visit, but there were several heat sources that made our stay comfortable. Bed is soft, but plush and cozy with lovely bedding. Good TV, Wifi, and phone connection. Location is perfect for the short walk to Salmon Creek beach, alive with a variety of birds--and a sanctuary for snowy plovers (so do not bring your dog). Major drawback was the uncomfortable, shabby-looking couch that did not fit in with the balance of the nice furnishings.

We loved all the blue and white decor, shells, nautical themed pictures, lovely scenery out all the windows and cozy fireplace .
