Recent Bodega Bay vacation rental reviews

Good location, well featured house. Need someone to check and fix all the light bulbs.

The house was really comfortable and the deck was really nice. Well appointed and really comfortable bedrooms. Lots of space and light in the living room. Modern and new.

We recently came back from a stay at this property. Let me start by saying that the property is beautiful. The location is prime, the home is beautifully appointed, and it was mostly an enjoyable stay. Now for the not so good part. The Vacasa service at this location leaves a lot to be desired. On our first day, we wanted to sit outside in the area that is heated by overhead heaters. The remote was supposed to be in the kitchen, but we couldn't find it anywhere and so sitting outside was difficult due to the chilly evening temperatures. Called Vacasa customer service in the morning to report the missing remote and was told that the local team will call me to help. 6 hours later, there was still no call. So I called customer service again, and got the same answer that someone would get in touch. 1 hour later, I got a text that the heaters were broken and therefore the remote was removed. Well, if this was communicated at check-in, it would have saved me time searching for the remote and the 2 calls into customer service where there was 10+ mins wait both times. Another issue was that the microwave lost power on the morning of the 2nd day. This made food warming very inconvenient. Again, this was reported to Vacasa customer service, but there was no call back from their local team. In summary, this could have been a perfect stay, but the Vacasa customer service was subpar.

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!
