Recent Bodega Bay vacation rental reviews

2023 was our 4th year staying at Fairview Grande. Each year it seems improvements have been made to the house that add to the charm and livability. The house has a wonderful view of the golf course and ocean as does the deck. Walking to the ocean is only minutes away. There are usually 7 of us adults staying very comfortably here. My only negative is the back door lock did not work. Looking forward to next year’s stay at Fairview Grande and working with Vacasa

Close to beach and a very nice home. Great for dogs too
Noel G. | May 2023
Perfect in every way. Loved the quiet, the location, and ease of access. We didn't mind the stairs at all. We enjoy walking and nature. While eating one evening one of the seals came right up to check us out. We also enjoyed the 3 mile hike on Bodega Head right across the bay as well as Spud Point's clam chowder and sourdough bread. There were a few issues that we would have liked to know beforehand: • There is a plugin stovetop (we were told there wasn't so bought one) • The coffee pot is drip (not kcup as described) nor did it have the correct filters • A couple of Dollar Tree stemless wine and tumbler glasses would have been nice. • Glasses were dirty but we always wash them ourselves anyway • We reported a few loose and missing spindles on the handrail of the deck. None of the above issues were a big deal. There is a store up the street where we bought what we needed.

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!
