About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

About a 10 minute walk to the beach! A single level house situated on a quarter acre lot with great privacy. The kitchen has been recently remodeled and is equipped for serious cooking. Comfortably furnished home with new Hot Springs hot tub and loungers on the large deck offering views of the ocean and Bodega Head.

Mandolin Wind is ideally laid out for two couples or a small family. Generous master suite has a king-sized bed, private bath and 36" TV. The guest bedroom has queen-sized bed, 36" TV and adjacent bath. Top quality linens, hair dryers, washer/dryer, ironing board/iron are all provided.

The kitchen includes a great gas stove for the cook, slab granite counter tops and new stainless steel appliances, including a wine refrigerator. Next to the well-equipped kitchen is the dining area, which comfortably seats six. You will also find a wonderful selection of cook books and elegant artwork throughout the house.

The large living room features a gas fireplace, high ceilings, 50" TV and Blu-Ray DVD player with internet connection. There are many windows and sliding door leading to the deck with hot tub and lots of space for relaxing. There is a Weber gas BBQ and table for outdoor dining.

Mandolin Wind has a high speed internet connection via Comcast cable to accommodate people who want to get away but have to stay connected. There is a wireless router to allow use of all your internet devices.

You can enjoy a round of world-class golf, then have dinner in the Club House overlooking the ocean. There are sliding glass doors out to the spa from the master bedroom and also the living area. Later on, watch the sunset from the private hot tub, while enjoying a glass of local Sonoma County wine; you will live out on the deck!

Bodega Bay is a quiet, secluded, peaceful sanctuary, yet only 55 miles from the sophisticated City of San Francisco. Hiking and bike trails abound to explore the rugged coastline. Enjoy a walk around Bodega Head or take the Pinnacle Gulch trail, which leads directly down to the beach. There are many local activities in Bodega Bay, Bodega, Sonoma, Petaluma and Sebastopol, such as the Fisherman's Festival and wineries in all directions.

We are so fortunate to have many excellent restaurants within a 5-10 minute drive, including Blue Water Bistro, our own clubhouse restaurant, Lucas Wharf and The Tides, and we can now boast of a Michelin one-star restaurant, Terrapin Creek. We are happy to share all of these wonderful local features with our guests

About Robert & Diana Reger

My husband and I love Bodega Bay. It is very peaceful and quiet and yet it is not far from San Francisco. The ocean is beautiful as well as the shoreline and beaches. The weather is variable but it's a great place to hang out if the weather is good or bad. There are some excellent seafood restaurants in the town of Bodega Bay and it is really enjoyable to get a table by the window and watch the boats going in and out of the harbour.

Robert & Diana Reger purchased this house in 2015

Why Robert & Diana Reger chose Bodega Bay

Mandolin Wind is located on a large 1/4 acre lot with a very private setting. The house is light filled and very comfortable. The large deck offers views of the ocean, Bodega Head and surrounding hills. There is lots of wildlife nearby including quail, deer, coyotes, rabbits and many kinds of hawks.

What makes this house unique

- Private setting on large lot

- Panoramic views

- Beautiful remodeled kitchen

- New Hot Springs SX model hot tub

The house had it all!

This house was more than we ever expected. Well stocked kitchen, beautiful deck, great hot tub, and plenty of backyard friends - deer, rabbits, quail, and barn owls. Comfortable bed, spacious living room with large flat screen TV. Looking forward to coming back.

Wonderful Anniversary Weekend

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful way to spend our anniversary; in a beautiful home, in a beautiful part of Northern California.

And it doesn’t hurt the Grange had their annual crab feed to raise funds for the high school scholarships.

Loved watching the sunrise/sunsets and ocean view from the hot tub on the open/inviting deck. We slept very well in a very comfortable master bedroom with views of the outside. The kitchen was open to dining room and living room and was great for entertaining. They had an excellent selection of movies for the day it rained. We would definitely recommend this home to others.

Thanks so much, Bob and Diana for your wonderful hospitably.

Relaxing and enjoyable.

  • 4 of 5

This home is clean and comfortable. I had one issue that was quickly resolved with the responsive owner, Bob. Would definitely stay here again. The stove and oven are wonderful, but was surprised there was no hand mixer. I cook and bake a lot, even while vacationing. Was sad there was no mixer.

Other than that, great.

Owner's Response: Hello Rachel, so glad you enjoyed your stay at Mandolin Wind! What a pity you did not find the mixer, which is on the shelf above the fridge, just to the left, behind the Crock Pot. (We also have two different hand mixers, and inummerable bowls). One 30 second phone call would have cleared this up! We are fully aware that we have many chefs, bakers, bird watchers, painters, and other craftspersons enjoy a trouble-free long weekend away from home, but wish to continue to practice their passions. Mandolin Wind is the perfect place for this! B&D
