Recent Bodega Bay vacation rental reviews

We loved the view of the ocean from the back yard and the sounds of the ocean. The house was large enough to have our immediate family, who Iive in Sonoma County, over for an afternoon brunch we hosted there. It was a sunny, warm clear day with blue skies and light winds. Everyone reported having a grand time! Our dogs loved the big back yard to run around in. We learned you have to turn up the hot tub hours before use, otherwise it will not be warm enough to enjoy. Unfortunately, no one at the brunch wanted to use the hot tub except two children who informed us the water was not hot enough. The lady who came to check the spa one day told us you have to raise the temp ahead of time and that it only goes up a few degrees per hour. So, we did heat it up ahead of time for my husband to use a couple of times. He enjoyed the experience! We stayed for a week and I wish we would have booked it for a longer stay! We also liked being close to things. A must is eating at the Fishetarian immediately to the right of Lucas Wharf restaurant. Another favorite is the Tides restaurant. Both places offer gluten free items! Walking on the beach with our dogs was also wonderful! We will definitely return.

The house was wonderful and the neighborhood was so quiet. We loved the hot tub and that the house was so close to the beach. We will definitely be back!

Things to do in Bodega Bay 

Renowned for its rocky Pacific Ocean scenery, Bodega Bay is also notable a specific kind of birdwatching - that is, for its association with Hitchcock's The Birds. Most of the movie was filmed here, and you can swing by the picturesque Potter School House, a compelling sight whether or not you're a fan. For less spine-tingling entertainment, right on Highway 1 in the heart of town sit a variety of quaint shops selling local wines, art, antiques, gifts, and other goodies. 

Outdoor attractions in Bodega Bay 

Truly memorable experiences lie in the natural beauty of this coastal town. A walk, or even a horseback ride, on Doran Beach will acquaint you with the bay's roaring shores. On top of Bodega Head, you'll find unbeatable views of the Pacific and perhaps even a family of humpback whales, if your timing is right. 

A short 17-minute drive north on Highway 1 takes you to Sonoma Coast State Park. At the northern tip of the park near Jenner, CA, you'll find Goat Rock Beach, home to wild harbor seals where the Russian River empties into the ocean.

Attractions near Bodega Bay 

After admiring the coast, it's worth venturing inland to some of Sonoma County's small towns. A scenic drive on the exotically named Bohemian Highway takes you 20 minutes away to Occidental, which offers cute cafes luxurious day spas. Go antiquing at the adorable Duncan Mills on California 116. It might be hard to resist wine country, but you don't have to venture too far east to find visit-worthy wineries. Just take a 30-minute drive to nearby Sebastopol and Forestville. If you wanted a taste of the city, take a day trip to San Francisco, where you'll enter via the famous Golden Gate Bridge. 

After a fun-filled day wandering the gorgeous sites of this slice of California, when you return to your Bodega Bay vacation rental or beach house rental, you'll have a wonderfully quiet and private place to relax!
