I was fortunate enough to be able to spend a month there, and it was perfection. As soon as you walk into the house, you can’t help but take a deep breath and feel the quiet, the calm, and see the breathtaking view of the harbor. The home is clean, comfortable, and tastefully done in every sense, including the way the windows were designed/placed to frame certain views (like a tree branch) and the whimsical details from the tile inserts to the colored glass in the fence. The bedding is heaven on earth and you can’t help but sink into blissful slumber each night. And the views…from the moment you open your eyes, the views are something to behold, as are the birds. Depending on when you catch the tide going out, the birds are there; sometimes right in front of the house, and sometimes farther into the harbor. (There was one particular snowy egret that I’m convinced came every morning to say hello.) On one sunny but rather windy day, para- and windsurfers, kayakers, and kites seemed to be everywhere. Crab season runs from Nov. to May, so there was crab right off the boats. The nearest wharf is a 5-min. walk, or you can go to the marina on the northside of the harbor, a 10-min. drive; totally yum. Cooking at Bird Watch was a joy with a fully stocked kitchen for any gourmet chef or wannabe. Oh, and the wine – Bodega Bay is in Sonoma County! Enough said. Annie was wonderful to communicate with, not only for the transaction but for recommendations and local info. I spent countless hours walking the trails (Doran Beach and oceanside, an ideal whale watch point), reading, listening to and playing music, and communing with all that was around me. Bird Watch was the perfect sanctuary for a much-needed time of rejuvenation and I look forward to getting back there for another extended stay. 5 stars all the way!
