With every AirBnB stay, I find a new superlative. Alex's 'Pacific View Cottage' place was by far the most interesting, unique and secluded - all of those good things. What a cool place he has - not to mention how cool Occidental / Bodega Bay are. Definitely recommend.
The Pacific View Cottage was an incredible place to stay--a wonderful view, a unique building, and a beautiful part of California with lots to do in the area. The cottage is very separate from the main house, and there's plenty of privacy. Alex was a great host: he brought us up to the cottage and gave us an overview of where everything was and recommendations for places to eat and things to do--we followed his recommendations, and they were all wonderful. This is a great base for exploring west Sonoma County. We went out to the coast and checked out Occidental and other small towns in the area, and with more time would have gone up to the Russian River and spent more time just hanging out around the cottage and soaking up the ambiance. We only wish we could have stayed longer!
Incredible house and location. Very romantic, like a castle.
Absolutely breathtaking. Even more beautiful than we imagined. Alex was incredibly sweet and accommodating on short notice. Would recommend to all!
This little cottage in the vineyard exceeded expectations. Our hosts were very welcoming and available if we had any questions. The cottage was great. Very private. No electronics to interfere with the peace. We would definitely return.
This place was incredible!
The photos don't do it justice - it's an amazingly relaxing, secluded cottage, surrounded by nature (and a vineyard!).
We were going to explore the area, but we felt so relaxed we just stayed in, sipped tea on the little patio and watched the birds circle around all day. Best of all - no WiFi...so we weren't stuck on our computers (don't worry, there IS cell reception).
It's an quick hour and a half drive from San Francisco, and located 10 minutes from Bodega (where they shot The Birds...be SURE to check out the Hitchcock-themed general store in town). Lots of restaurants within a 10-minute drive, too.
The cottage has all the amenities and supplies you need, too. A fruit basket greets you when you arrive, and there's already oil, salt and balsamic vinegar for cooking! The shower is incredible. Make sure you take one (that's a good rule in general!).
Alex and Virginia were great hosts - they let us in when we got there, then left us to ourselves. And they were super-easy to get ahold of whenever we needed.
Can't say enough good things. We WILL be coming back!
Very beautiful cottage that served as the perfect getaway location. I'm happy to have stayed here.
The cottage was entrancing - exactly as pictured. Having breakfast on the balcony was absolutely lovely. So quiet that you could hear the wing flaps of passing birds. Alex was an excellent host. We would definitely stay again, and would also recommend to friends. On our entire LA to Mendocino road trip, this was our favorite place we stayed.
Alex's cottage is quite lovely. The photos are very precise and he leaves you with a lot of instructions and information.
We really enjoyed this unique structure in a beautiful setting. The only sounds in the morning were of birds and a couple of happy cows. Truly peaceful. Alex was a great host. The fruit, granola bars and juice were a nice touch (especially since the cottage is a bit of a drive from the closest store). My one complaint would be the bed. Although comfortable it is quite a bit smaller than we are used to. It was a great weekend getaway.
