Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom 2 Bathroom Beach House With Private Stairs To Secluded Beach.

FYI: The devastating Sonoma County fire of 2017 did not in any way effect the area for many miles around our location and did not impact the Coastal Region. Our hearts go out to all those who have suffered a terrible loss.

Welcome to our beach house (completely remodeled in 2013) for the 'Ultimate Pacific Coast Surf Experience'. Perched atop a cliff overlooking the Pacific approximately 4 miles north of Bodega Bay. The photo's will depict views from the actual property and the beautiful coastal inspired interior.

PLEASE NOTE: AS PER SONOMA COUNTY LAW: This home is not permitted for a wedding destination or a venue for gatherings. We cannot accept pre or post wedding gatherings. Only guests that are on the reservation are allowed. 6 guests maximum at all times. Thank you! 100% PET ALLERGY FREE. Our guests can enjoy a pet allergy free home!

(Check-in: 4PM Check-out 11AM)

The beach house is built on the bluff over looking a spectacular show of nature at her best. You will have your own private stairs down to a sheltered, secluded beach. You can have beach fun and family time exploring tide pools or a romantic, quiet picnic...Just the two of you and the ocean.

The design and construction team have kept the integrity of the seaside property with it's planked walls and raked ceiling, enhancing the beach house ambiance. Comforting neutrals, warm whites and current pops of fun color punctuate the decor. Driftwood effect ceramic floors, quartz counters and nautical theme accessories carry the beach house motif throughout.

The Pacific, west facing beach house allows you to view the surf at all times and enjoy the most breath taking sunsets, crashing surf, sea mist and bold rugged rock formations.

The great room with it's 35 foot wide wall of pacific facing windows is comfortably furnished with a log-effect fireplace and a Smart flat screen TV. Internet and free US and Canada long distance supplied for your convenience.

Dining for four at the antique table with it's captain's chairs, or at the large quartz peninsula.

All electric kitchen appliances: fast glass top range, and small appliances. Generous quartz counter work space in neutral tones and plenty of cabinet space with ambiance lighting for enhanced cooking and entertaining experience. The kitchen is well appointed for enjoying home cooked faire. Why go out when you can have the best ocean view in town with the surf as your back ground music! Enjoy your cracked crab and chardonnay at sunset with your family or special other.

Gas BBQ on porch.

Two king bedrooms and two bathrooms: the countryside facing room has views of peaceful bucolic rolling hills and a red farmhouse with it's barn. To add to your comfort we have installed a wall mounted fireplace to keep the chill off and a T.V.. It has a large en suite with a tub and shower combo. The second king has a Pacific Ocean and farm view, a wall mounted fireplace and T.V.. A quaint shower bathroom with a quartz vanity services this king room. Both bedrooms offer great privacy and are ideal for two couples.

Attention to detail for your comfort continues throughout. Plenty of towels, linens, comforters (with duvet covers changed for each guest) and quilts. Excellent Memory Foam toppers on both beds. All the mattresses and pillows have protectors and high quality pads. Two folding futon pads for extra two guest (ideal for kids and teens)

If you need more room for extended family or friends we can offer the 'Little Sister Cottage' next door: Seamist Cottage. She is our cute & cozy one bedroom/bath with a sleeping loft/two twins(ideal for kids/teens) Seamist is a smaller version of Surfscape with all the great attention to detail and comfort.

We have designed and furnished the Surfscape Beach House to create a memorable and wonderful experience that will leave you rested, renewed and ready to return again and again!

We look forward to your visit.

About Gay Jardine

We are a design and construction team with a lot of energy! We love taking something and turning it around. Our vacation rentals and guests are important to us and we enjoy our work. We also have other properties that have been a success and enjoyed by many.

Gay Jardine purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Gay Jardine chose Sereno del Mar

This property is a find in a million! You just don't come by a gem like Surfscape every day. The impact of walking into the cottage and being amazed by the pounding surf right there in your living room was well beyond words! There is really nothing like it!

What makes this cottage unique

Private beach stairs down to a semi secluded beach! Not only do you have an amazing up-close ocean view, but you have access to the beach below. The beach is close to being private with only one other neighbor's staircase leading down. The beach is cut-off from both ends at higher tides. Very few beach-combers and you'll feel as though it were your own!

The cottage has a wonderful coastal cliff location (the seagulls fly past your windows!) Fantastic views of the Pacific and beautiful crashing surf. Large deck and glass railing.

(PLEASE NOTE: AS PER SONOMA COUNTY: We are NOT permitted as a wedding destination location, or a site for gatherings. We cannot hold ceremonies, host pre or post wedding get- togethers or social gatherings.

6 ( SIX) guests maximum at ALL times, no daily gatherings of more visitors.

We are 100% PET ALLERGY FREE . Thank you.

Thanks again for your business and we will look forward to the next time!

Best View On The Coast

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed at Surfscape several times and each time we step in and see the view from the picture windows, it takes our breath away. The interior is immaculate and tastefully decorated with every need anticipated. The cottage and views are so perfect that we stay in every night for dinner. At the end of each stay I begin planning our next visit.

This property standsout from the rest

  • 4 of 5

The weather could have been better, but not your beautiful house. The recent renovations really make this property a standout. We were wondering if you, or the remodeler, was European. The bathtub with the half glass shower protection and the toilets with the twin top flush mechanism are common in Europe.

Also, kudos to your cleaning person. I thought the house was spotless.

One negative was the relatively slow WiFi speed, but then there is the view to occupy your download time.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for visiting us and writing! The Verizon WI-FI is the best we could find to service our home on that particular strip of coastline that the cable company(groan) decide to stop servicing(long story-big headache!) We use the Wi-Fi (very important for us, a big MUST )when on our "working visits" and do absolutely fine. You will always be able to email and use your devises. We also have every DISH channel package available. We work constantly to: refresh, upgrade and re-knew to make your visit the best we can possibly offer. We love sharing this beautiful location; it's the perfect "get-away"!

SURFSCAPE, a recently remodeled beach house is situated on the bluff near Gleasons Beach on the Pacific Ocean, a short 5 mile drive north of Bodega Bay and 7 miles south of Jenner between Salmon Creek and the Russian River in Sonoma County.

(Check-in 4PM- Check-out 11AM)

This Pacific get-away Beach House is unique and one of only a few actually situated on the ocean with it's own private stairs to the beach.

Upon entering Surfscape Beach House you will be astounded at the visual before you...The Pacific Ocean in all her glory. You are so close you can feel her power and will be awestruck. Gulls fly past your 35 feet of wall-to wall, ceiling height windows. Pelicans land on Elephant rock, which punctuates your spectacular view. Enjoy watching migrating whales 'blow' in the distance. You will experience being alone and away from it all with the pounding surf surely as if it was your own!

This area is revered for it's dramatic coastline, famed wineries and lush farmland. For outdoor enthusiasts, hiking trails along Bodega Head, kayaking, local guided tours on Bodega Bay or waiting for the perfect wave at Salmon Creek, Gleasons (walking distance), Portuguese and Wright Beach, all within very close proximity are great ways to get out and enjoy this amazing location. For equestrians: Chancellor Ranch, a short drive away where you can take trails up into the hills or down to the ocean.

The coastal community offers seafood and family style restaurants, beach shops, galleries, saltwater taffy and kite shops, a marina, golfing and a spa.

The Pacific Coast, Sonoma County with it's many attributes is a wonderful location. Just 70 miles from San Francisco and 7 miles south of Jenner and close to the charming little towns: Bodega, Sonoma, Guernville and Duncan Mills.

Surfscape Beach House is an amazing location where you can restore and redefine relaxation.
