Do you enjoy the cozy pampered feeling of an inn....
but prefer the convenience, privacy and space of a home?
Welcome to 'Bay View'!
This coastal cutie is perfect for one or two couples (and comfortably sleeps 5-6 adults). This spacious 1500 sq ft home has an open floor plan with views from most rooms (including the kitchen). Bay View's décor is best described as sophisticated beach, with original art from Sonoma Coast artists throughout the home! The home's layout allows you to visit with guests in the kitchen, living/dining room, bar area, and sunroom while enjoying the view of the bay. Curl up on the large leather sectional sofa and watch streaming, Netflix, Hulu Plus, HBO Max, Amazon Prime (and many other streaming stations) and DVD/BluRay movies on the 55 inch flat screen HDTV (or enjoy a book love seat by the cozy blue enamel stove). There are 2 beautifully decorated bedrooms, each furnished with a queen size bed and heated mattress wrapped in premium cotton sheets for chilly nights. There is a spacious main bathroom with private access from both bedrooms, a large granite vanity, and heated towel rack! A cozy double bed provides additional sleeping space for an extra guest, and a great place to relax and enjoy the view or watch movies. A second full bathroom and laundry is conveniently located off the main living space.
For the cook there is a large fully-equipped kitchen with a 5 burner gas stove and electric oven, and fridge/freezer with ice maker. Sit at the 10 foot long mosaic topped bar area and visit with the cook(s) while enjoying a glass of Sonoma Coast wine. Relax in our enclosed sun room that leads outside to a 400 sq. foot deck and a large sunny fenced yard where you will find the seasonal fire pit/conversation area, a gas BBQ, and hot tub! At times you will hear the ocean waves, fog horn and seals playing in the distance. You can always smell the clean ocean air the minute you step outside!
“Bay View” has beautiful views including Bodega Bay and the road to Bodega Head. The view changes constantly with boats heading out to sea during the day and returning home at night. During the full moon the bay glistens. However, when there is no moon the stars fill the sky and the bay sparkles with lights from the area inns and the returning fishing boats.
Centrally located, the 'Bay View House' sits on ¼ acre at the north edge of the town of Bodega Bay. Literally the last street in Bodega Bay before hitting the beaches our location provides convenience while still providing privacy and solitude. We are less than 5 minutes from Everything! (the restaurants, trails, Bodega Bay, Bodega Head (whale watching), Bodega Habour Golf Course, Doran Beach, and all the beautiful Sonoma Coast State Park (comprised of a long string of sandy beaches). Getting to the beach or bayside is a 20-30 minute walk (3 minute drive). The Children’s Bell Tower, a gift from Italy in honor of Nicholas Green and the trails surrounding the monument that lead to Bodega Dunes are only a few minute walk from the home. Continue on this path and you will pass an old Cypress tree where Monarch Butterflies stop during their yearly migration. As you travel through the dunes to the beach you will see vernal pools which change with each season. The newly completed easy walking/fully accessible Coastal Prairie Trail will take you from the Bay View all the way to Salmon Creek Beach. There are many things to explore both on foot and by car. Whether you spend the day exploring or just relaxing, you are sure to enjoy our cozy coastal retreat.
There is plenty of parking for your car or boat in our large circular driveway, where you can load and unload right at the front door.
