We have visited many homes in Bodega Bay but this house has by far the best and widest ocean views. The light and bright top floor has an extremely large kitchen and living room (all in one room) that opens up to a wonderful sunroom. The cast iron fireplace in the center of the living area heats up the entire top floor within minutes. Playing ping pong and foosball kept the kids busy for hours while the rest of us prepared dinner upstairs. Much of the home has been remodeled – new flooring and nice modern furniture. Though the kitchen was a little dated, it did have a wonderful retro feel. A nice touch was having all the best Alfred Hitchcock movies on DVD, as well as some of the movie posters. The master suite was very spacious, and the host provided some excellent recommendations for seafood restaurants. It’s a quick walk to the sandy beach, where you can also climb around on the rocks. The kids loved playing in the caves next to the ocean. Crab and sandpipers scurry about everywhere. Lots of starfish too. Watch out for the jellyfish. What a gem of a location!
