Recent Bodega Bay vacation rental reviews

Great location by the beach. Cottage had everything we needed.
Donna O. | Jan 2022
The location provided us with a great view of the ocean and gorgeous sunsets!
Ann L. | Jan 2022
We loved the ocean view from the upstairs great room where we spent most of our time. We also loved the two gas fireplaces, especially in the main bedroom. Would have liked cloth napkins, better dishtowels, but those are quibbles. The house has an otherwise well-stocked kitchen, comfortable furniture and beds, and a wonderful selection of puzzles and games. Vacasa staff responded quickly when we had trouble with a door lock and the fireplaces. Highly recommended.

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!
