The Beach House
This stunning house sits on a bluff directly above the ocean. Sit in the living room with a 180 degree view of the ocean, hear the waves as they roll in, watch birds of prey land on a cypress tree, and deer, foxes and other wildlife forage on the hill. Occasionally, see a whale or dolphin swimming off shore. At dusk, watch the sun set as you make dinner in the fully equipped kitchen with all new appliances. Later watch the moon and stars come out as you relax to the sound of the waves.

Bodega Bay’s culinary landscape features locally sourced fine wines and fresh-caught seafood, including a variety of crab, cod, salmon, and tuna. Film enthusiasts can expect to marvel at Potter Schoolhouse and St. Teresa of Avila Church — two landmarks from scenes in a popular Hollywood movie.
