“Worth a 10, Cannot Wait for our Next Stay!!!”
Reviewed 15 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Staying at the Bay View is like being home, there is not one detail that has been missed! My husband and I, along with my parents were looking for a place that we could go to relax and take our "fur" children. We rarely get to vacation together, and wanted somewhere that we would all be comfortable. In looking at the various properties available in Bodega Bay, we kept coming back to this particular home as it just seemed to fit every need that we had. Let me say, it exceeded our expectations! The home is beautiful and so cozy. We cooked every meal in the well equipped kitchen, enjoyed watching movies, relaxed in the hot tub, slept like a dream on the wonderful beds, and loved having a view to look at everyday! Needless to say, it was difficult to leave when our time was up, so when we arrived home we re-booked for next year! Janice, I have to especially thank you for this amazing home you have created, and your willingness to share it with others! We are counting down the days until we return!

“Comfortable home away from home”
Reviewed 3 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

This modest home is probably the most turnkey comfortable and inviting home we've rented in a decade of twice yearly women's retreats in Bodega Bay/Sonoma Coast. (Usually 6-8 of us. This year, I went alone, joined by 2 others for one day.) Feels more like a friend's home than a rental unit. Loved, would rebook.

The 5* rating is about service: the owner, Janice, really wants you to enjoy your stay. (She even called night of arrival to ensure all was well.) She has thought of everything to ensure your comfort: bed warmers, towel warmers, throw covers in case you're chilled in the living room (not!), low level lights (or faux candles) in every space so no night tumbles, a huge fridge only (who knew? stocked with a gift bottle of local wine, yummy), separate freezer in another space, laundry facilities, pet treats and spare pet supplies, kitchen stocked with spices, herbs, etc, storage containers, alum foil and baggies!! Bookshelf with local resources, and a smattering of interesting games and non fiction vacation reading. Janice has written a huge manual of info on place, surroundings, how to operate appliances, and included a ton of local restaurant menus. Solid Wi-fi. Large flat screen TV doesn't have cable, but has Hulu, Amazon Prime and a ton of other offerings... There was a box of dvds and a music source (we never used media)... Hot tub (you turn to 102 when you arrive) is wonderful...Nice, flat, gated outdoor area (we didn't use grill or fire pit)...

That said, it isn't the fanciest, most secluded, best situated, most elegant or luxurious accommodation.

But unlike most pet friendly homes, the furnishings are up to date, fashionable, clean and people comfy.

Best for two couples, or small group of friends (2 bedrooms with queens, extra bed in LR)...

Although close to main road, quiet... Main Bodega Bat grocery store (it's teeny,expensive but good for last minute - oops, forgot the x) just around the corner. Mexican restaurant in walking distance....

Located in a well established sun belt neighborhood (goodbye fog!). Friendly neighbors (one offered us cuttings from her plants). You will feel safe, nestled into a bona fide, local, residential area... but if you are an introvert, or one who prefers to see only landscape/ sea/ sky, this might not be the right choice....

Access to walking trails, including to beach (probably about 4000 steps one way, for you fit bit/step counters). But the closest beach is NOT pet friendly- I sat with Fido at the NO DOGS sign at beach entry while the other gals walked on the beach ;-(

Only bummer: 3 boomer gals with long grey hair, and long haired grey and white dog charged $50 extra cleaning fee (on top of the $135 standard) for "plant debris and grey hair on 2 bedspreads." Sigh...

Thank you for your comprehensive review! Couple notes for future guests:
Dog beaches are within a 5 minute drive (and a list is provided) Most homes are not walking distance to pet friendly beaches (except the subdivisions where there are no fenced yards and homes are much closer together).
Concerning cleaning - in 4 years and 100's of guests this is only the 2nd time we have charged additional cleaning. Our cleaning crew is exceptional and you would never know we were a pet friendly home. Upon this guest's departure the entire house was filled with dirt and bark from holes the dog had dug in the yard. Additionally there was tons hair everywhere, including locations pets are not allowed. This required a deep clean to insure the next guests arrived to a sparkling clean home. We didn't waive the extra $50 as the guest already received a free night when booking. Rest assured if you treat our home with care you won't accrue any extra charges (this was an extreme case)
You won't find a nicer or more peaceful home our size with a view at our rates. Be sure to read the rest of our reviews! Thanks

“Everything promised & more”
Reviewed 2 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

The house was everything promised. We have stayed in many homes and by far this is one of our best stays ever. Everything was perfect. The house, location, spa, fenced in back yard, and property owner. She took the time to make sure we had everything we needed for the perfect stay. We will definitely be back (with our sheena).

“Bay View Fan”
Reviewed 12 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

A great spot for many reasons! We loved the house, warm and cozy feel with a fully equipped kitchen that had everything. Great back yard for the dog and the humans. Really nice location for both walking adventures and a short drive to many beaches. Most of all the owner was wonderful to deal with...very attentive and helpful! We will definitely stay here again.

“Gorgeous Vacation House”
Reviewed 18 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

For my partners 60th, I decided to do something completely different. We came on a Saturday and stayed for 2 nights. We took our dogs with us. We had a wonderful time. The house is gorgeous, the bed wonderful, the mattress warmers heavenly. The (pet friendly) beaches are very close by. It serves as a perfect place for a getaway and a base to go sightseeing along Hwy 1. The owner is very responsive and very helpful with text, email and phone...We had a wonderful stay..

My daughter and I really enjoyed our stay here. The house is very comfortable, roomy, quiet, & well-equipped. Janice checked to make sure we got in okay and to see if there was anything we needed. The house is clearly very well cared for.
