Bodega Bay is beautiful all year. Come and check out the Sonoma Coast. Enjoy a stay in Bodega Bay at our coastal retreat. The days and evenings are cooler than in the inland areas. Sometimes it is windy, sometimes foggy! Dress in layers and be prepared for frequent weather changes. From the prevailing north west winds we enjoy clean air, great visibility, and wild flowers light up the hillsides in the Spring. When the weather is windy the air is fresh and cold, and the skies are dramatic. We still have fires in the fire place, and you can enjoy the local beaches and parks just walking distance from our house.
We have our reservations set so that guests can automatically book their (email hidden)is is a great feature and speeds the process up so you can be sure you get your accommodations when you want them. We keep our calendar current so please feel free to automatically book. I am always available by email to answer any other questions you may have. Feel free to write for recommendations on hiking, kayaking, wine tasting, or anything else you think you may need.
We really enjoy our airbnb guests and love sharing our favorite local spots. Guests stay in our downstairs Private Master Bedroom and private bath with ocean views from the bedroom. We have Directv and wireless internet. We are in a Restful and quiet neighborhood. Verizon cell phones work here. AT&T and other cell providers do not work here. In the morning we offer fresh coffee/decaff, juice, pastries, bagels, cereal, It is a self serve continental style breakfast. If you are having an extended stay, or just one night, and you would like full kitchen access, we offer full kitchen access for an additional $40 per day, paid to us after you check in.
Great for cyclists, as we are only two miles to the well known route over Coleman Valley Road to Occidental. We can recommend other great rides as well for all levels of biking, in West Marin, to Petaluma, and the back west county roads of Sebastopol.
It is a half mile walk to Portuguese Beach from our house. This puts you right in the middle of the Sonoma Coast State beaches. There are great hikes/walks in our area for varying levels of ability and comfort. There is the Pomo Trail, the Kortum Trail, Doran Park Beach, Bodega Headlands, and Willow Creek, just to name a few.
Easy drive to the Sonoma Wine Country, and only a few miles to the Russian River. If you like kayaking this is the right place for that sport as well. Kayak in the lower Russian River and paddle up to Duncans Mills and back. Or there is Tomales Bay, or the Estero.
We have a hot tub, backyard garden area, & great sunset viewing from the front deck.
We have a real wood burning fireplace and when weather conditions permit, we do build fires.
Good restaurants are close, The Tides, Inn at the Tides, Lucas Wharf, Rivers End, and the Sandpiper. In less than an hour you are in Sonoma Wine Country and great world class wine tasting. The picturesque drive to Healdsburg is to head north on Hwy One to River Road and then take Westside Rd or Eastside Rd in to Healdsburg. There are many many wineries to choose from, and very well known restaurants to enjoy.
The Master Bedroom we offer to guests on airbnb is very clean, newly carpeted, has a pillowtop lightly used queen size bed, large closet, dresser with mirror, and a full length mirror. There is a six foot couch in the guest bedroom, and we have another six foot couch available in the living room if you have extra guests with you. For each couch it is $35 a night additional per person after the first two guests.
We encourage guests to enjoy their morning coffee on the back deck in our perennial flower and herb garden. Lots of hummingbirds are here and they are very entertaining along with hawks, finches, towhees, robins, and sparrows. Other wildlife in the neighborhood, deer, fox, racoon, skunks, possoms, bobcats, and frogs! And cows are nearby too! Sometimes at night you can hear the coyotes howling in the hills just behind us. And the Owls...It is all pretty cool!! And of course you hear the ocean!!
We are dog friendly to service dogs, house broken dogs, and non aggressive breeds. We ask for a $50 pet deposit when you arrive, by check. And if there are no problems we return the check to you when you leave. Our backyard is pretty dog proof, but we ask guests to clean up their dog's packages before leaving. We have dog bowls for water and food, and doggie treats and toys.
Ellen is a very gracious host and they have a very beautiful house with great views. We had a great time there and hopefully will visit again.
Bodega Bay Ocean Views is a very nice place to stay on the coast north of San Francisco. I loved the fireplace (yes, the weather was a little bit cold during my visit). The ocean is a short walk away and offers great views which Ellen has captured in many beautiful photographs displayed in her home. And I loved her garden and Mattie, the dog!
Great place in a great location. Views of the ocean as advertised and it was fantastic sitting in the secluded hot tub listening to the frogs. Ellen was friendly and responsive.
This was my first airbnb experience. Ellen gave me great advice.
A wonderful, comfy place for your stay. Ellen and Jeff are super nice people who will do everything to make your stay as pleasant as possible. If you are interested in visiting beautiful Bodega Bay, I recommend you to stay at their place!
Fantastic location at a great price. I live only a couple hours away and had a great getaway. Great host and experience overall.
Ellen and Jeff were gracious hosts in a house that was immaculate, filled with lovely antiques, and offering generous accommodations. Ellen met us for breakfast and served us coffee and muffins, and then told us about the sites in Bodega Bay, with a personal knowledge that one can only get from someone who loves where they live.
The neighborhood is quiet, with a gorgeous view of the ocean in the distance. The bed was comfortable, and the room was incredibly quiet. The garden behind the house was lovely and welcoming. It was the perfect get-away for us.
Ellen's dog, Maddie (sp) was a little nervous at first, but quickly learned to greet us with love and affection. I hope we have a chance to stay again at this lovely home. It's a little hard to find in the dark, but easy to find in the daylight. Sitting on the hill overlooking the ocean, it's just a few minutes outside of Bodega Bay, and well situated to visit beaches, tide-pools, or the few restaurants located in town.
Ellen is a warm and considerate host, and very much appreciated for her grace in handling a potentially difficult scheduling matter! Her home is clean, welcoming and in a terrific location! Most definitely recommended!
Ellen and Jeff were outstanding hosts. They couldn't' have been more nice and accommodating. They happily shared many tips about things to do in the area and places to eat. I wish I'd had more time to take them up on a kayak trip. The house is very nice and comfortably. The private bathroom is very modern and was spotless. The location is central to everything and the view out the window of the ocean can't be beat. Definitely recommend you stay with them if in Bodega Bay.
This is a beautiful area on the coast!. Ellen and Jeff are very nice and helpful. We live in the Bay Area and this spot offers a nice place to stay at a reasonable cost.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
