I stayed with several friends at Aquene for a long weekend and we all enjoyed the getaway tremendously. Although the house was only a few blocks from another place I'd stayed in Bodega Bay, the location – on the edge of a swath of dune grass park land – made it feel so much more remote and private and within nature. It has a few old house quirks but the architecture is open and spacious and the tall windows which are mainly oriented towards the park provide gorgeous views of the dunes, the sunset, the rolling fog, and all the colors of the coastal environment. The owner, Pringl, was always prompt to respond to communications and questions and we left feeling very satisfied with our visit.
We loved this secluded escape! Daily events included whale watching from the chairs outside, long walks on the beach, amazing sunsets while enjoying a glass of local Sonoma Coast wine.
The no technology forced us to relax. We took multiple naps several days.
Warmth: when we woke up in the morning it was cold, but the house does warm up during the day with the windows/sun, so don't panic! The fireplace worked great.
The description was accurate. The fact that there is no phone, no wifi, no oven, no cell signal, no TV needs to be called out. We loved this, but some people may not.
Also please note no oven.
The house has 2 bedrooms + another bed in a loft.
This is a fantastic property and one of the nicest we have stayed at on the California coast. The house has unobstructed views of the dunes and ocean with whales spouting in the distance. Our children ran to their hearts content up and down the dunes and on the quiet beach a short walk away. The house itself is modern, simple, clean and comfortable.
Perfect getaway! The location right by the dunes and the views, the views! No TV or wifi or close neighbors was just what we needed. Time to read, cook, tend the fireplace, walk the dunes and beach. It was clean, great location, and it was easy to get in and out.
