The View is spectacular.The house is spacious and comfortable. The kitchen was remodeled in 2009. It features a 6 burner gas stove, stainless steel appliances, double ovens, wine refrigerator, prep sink in the center island and granite counter tops. It is a cooks delight! Or BBQ on the gas grill on the deck just outside of the kitchen while enjoying outdoor seating with a view. Both bedrooms have Cal King size beds and flat screen TVs. There is a small room off of the living room that has a day bed with a trundle, just big enough for a couple of kids or pushed together can make another King size bed. The Hot Tub is located on a private deck just outside the Master bedroom and is great for late night star gazing, early morning sunrise soaking and daytime relaxing. The living room is cozy with a wood fireplace and a large flat screen TV that is connected to Directv Satellite programing, and there is a wide variety of movies on Blueray & DVD. But who has time to watch TV when there is so much to do? Stay in or go explore the area, either way you'll love it.
We have lived most of our lives in Northern California. Bodega Bay is our 'Happy Place'. We work full time and plan to retire one day to Bodega Bay.
Elaine (aka Nikki) Scoggan purchased this house in 1997
We spent our Honeymoon at a home up the hill and around the corner from Southern Exposure. We've rented vacation homes in Bodega Bay and vacationed with our family for many years until we were able to buy Southern Exposure.
The house is spread out, it's nice to separate from family or other guests if you choose. I love being able to hear the ocean when the windows are open. The beep from the fog horn on Bodega Head is comforting. I love walking on the beach and looking for shells. Every season has special events that are fun to do, for instance in April the Fisherman's festival is always fun with a boat building contest and race along with craft booths and the blessing of the fleet. In October Art Trails is fun to explore different local artists studios. Local farms and wine tasting are always fun to visit. I love to take a drive along the coast. And after doing all or none of that I can come back to the house and relax! The house is a Home!
We all have to say that your home in Bodega Bay is just wonderful. I've found myself daydreaming about sitting in the sunroom gazing out to the Pacific my first day back to work. The house had everything needed and more. Next time we vacation on the Northern Californian coast we will be sure to make reservations with you again. Highlights of our trip included horseback riding at Chanslor Ranch, beach combing on 3 different beaches, a visit to the school house from the movie "The Birds" and last but not least soaking in the hot tub back at the house.
Thank you for the great hospitality and amenities you offer. I can tell you your home tops the list above all the rentals we have stayed in the past.
Three of us had a wonderful two nights at Southern Exposure. The beds were very comfortable, the master bathroom was fabulous and the view is amazing. We spent most of our time on the sunporch, watching the boats cruising in the bay, and the fog rolling in and out. The kitchen is equipped with just about any gadget, pan, utensil that you could want, and there is a terrific spice cabinet. We were amazed to see a good supply of flour, sugar and coffee too! The house is located in a subdivision on a hill, and we felt safe walking morning and evening. The views on the walk were spectacular, too. Nikki (the owner) was great to work with.
The house was beautiful and well maintained.
We all commented on how well equipped and stocked the house is!!!!
I wanted to mention that one of the top posts of the railing leading is loose to the touch.
We have decided to make annual visits to the house because it feels like home. We have named it Shangri-la.
Thanks Nikki for sharing this special place.
The home was beautiful with vast views of Bodega Bay. The neighborhood was quiet. The hot tub was one of the best we've ever had in the houses we've rented over the past few years and it was located in backyard and was secluded. The bathroom was super large with a shower and separate soaking tub. The kitchen was well equipped and really nice with plenty of space to move around. The house had a wonderful sunroom in the front that overlooked Bodega Bay. We happened to be there on a weekend when the outside temperature was really really hot and for that reason the sunroom did get pretty warm by mid-ay that weekend. So by mid-day we did have to open the doors to it on both sides to try to cool it down. It was truly enjoyable reading in the sunroom and looking out at the Bay as I turned each page of my book. The owner responded quickly to my query and offered great customer service. We'll definitely recommend this house to our friends.
My wife and I, and another couple stayed here for four nights in late September. We couldn't have asked for anything more! The home had a very nice layout, was immaculately clean and had everything we needed. The large kitchen was well-stocked with cookware, dishes, utensils, appliances, etc...., which was great for breakfast preparation every morning before heading to the Russian River Valley and beyond. The view of the bay was fantastic, and the neighborhood was very well kept. And we put the hot tub to good use every evening, as well! I would definitely stay here again!
This home is absolutely beautiful! My husband and I stayed for a week in Bodega Bay and our son and his girlfriend visited for the weekend. The place was extremely comfortable. The views are spectacular and the wild life in the backyard was really enjoyable to watch. We also enjoyed the hot tub. We travel quite a bit and stay in vrbo homes often, and found the kitchen in this home to be better stocked than any we have ever stayed in before.
The place was clean and well maintained. I would definitely stay here again!
This home is wonderful. And it's in a wonderful neighborhood. The kitchen is spectacular. And the master bath is to die for. We spent 4 days and wish it were longer; hope to be back some day. It's also the perfect spot for wine country, beaches, hiking, sightseeing. The front room with all the windiws is the favorite for hanging out, drinking wine and just looking at the bay. Very relaxing. Thank you Nikki.
Bodega Bay is a small fishing village north of San Francisco by about an hour. The bay itself is a sheltered cove. There is plenty to do fishing, canoeing, diving, surfing up the coast a little ways, and playing on the beach. There is horseback riding, golfing at the Bodega Harbour Golf Links, and wine tasting in nearby Sonoma Valley. In April, the Fisherman's festival brings out many arts and craft booths, they host a boat building contest and have live music. In July, they have a fireworks show that can be seen from our deck. In August, the food, and wine festival features many local restaurants, beer and wine makers. In October, Art trails offers open artist studios to the public featuring local artists in Sonoma county. Twice a year there is whale watching on Bodega Head, park rangers are there to answer questions and give information. Year round enjoy the beaches, fly kites, explore the many little shops in Bodega Bay and eat crab and clam chowder!
