Recent Bodega Bay vacation rental reviews

This place is unbelievable once you figure out exactly which house is "the place". The view...breath taking! notch! Even figuring out which exact house it is...a comical way to start your stay! So lighten up! Everything was laid out to make us feel like we were right at home. The house is contemporary yet inviting. Vaulted ceilings make for a spacious feel. The location is convenient to a local grocery store for all of your coffee and light cooking needs. This pad also has your back for toiletries and plenty of towels! Oh and did I mention the beautiful flowers that grow from the garden? That scent fills the air as you walk down the path from the gate to the door! Have I said enough to make you stay here? You're welcome!

Where to start?! This is the best rental I have ver stayed at. It had everything that we needed. On of my friends forgot her charger, and the what do you know?? There are chargers in each room. It definitely felt like I was at home. Furniture is very comfortable, and the beds are amazing! I’m pregnant and this was the first time I have not needed my maternity pillow to sleep…and I sleep like a baby!! The views were also amazing. It is a short drive/walk to the beach. 10/10 would recommend and I look forward to coming back again in the future.

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!
