Spacious Studio with private deck, a panoramic view and lots of windows!
About Steve Aitken
The property features three private rental units; both have private entrances and decks for your enjoyment. I've lived in Sonoma County for over 30 years and enjoy the fishing and relaxation that this property offers.
Steve Aitken purchased this House in 2016
Why Steve Aitken chose Old Town
The Sonoma Coast is one of the most beautiful and dramatic places in all of Northern California. It's somewhere that I wanted to spend time, so a vacation rental made a lot of sense. I truly enjoy sharing my home with people from all over the world, who appreciate life on the water as much as I do.
What makes this House unique
Staying on the water is a vacation in and of itself. The immersion of life according to nature....watching the tides come in and out, enjoying a sunset from your private deck, watching the pelicans fish for their dinner and the river otters playing....there's just nothing like it. Many people don't realize the diversity of wildlife up here. Bodega Bay is also an active fishing village. You can go out deep sea fishing on a fishing charter, or I can tell you where to buy the freshest fish, or enjoy the best local clam chowder. There's something for everyone here in Bodega Bay!

Everything was great.
The place was perfect for two people. Clean with an amazing view. Fully stocked kitchen, couch was very comfortable and waking up the the bay was awesome. I would say if you’re particular about your pillows bring your own, otherwise the bed is just fine. Parking is as advertised, so trucks can make for a tight squeeze, but even then it wasn’t a problem. We would stay here again without question.
We had such a nice weekend. The place is perfect for a couple who want a relaxing stay on the water. We can’t wait to go back.
Needs upgrades - improvements
Difficulty parking. If your vehicle has a low ground clearance this property could be problematic as it was for a Tesla S. There is VERY limited space to turn around. This was noted by the owner in his description of the property; however, the ground clearance issue made it even more of an issue. Both the driveway and the garage area presented problems.
The linens, both towels and bedding, need to be replaced and upgraded. Using mismatched, bleach stained and otherwise old towels is not acceptable. Sheets had seen better days. Too many pillows on every surface made for difficult seating -- these are not shown in the picture.
Several of the windows facing the bay had no coverings therefore it was impossible to control the afternoon heat and light. No screens on windows. Chairs on the deck need replacing as well - definitely not the ones shown in picture.
No closet, no drawers for storage and no hooks other than the two on the back of the bathroom door with a collection of hangers. One luggage rack and no flat space to unpack a suitcase and store anything,
Would I rent this location again? No. Way too expensive for what you get - a wonderful view but not up to acceptable standards for a rental.
Nice studio apt. overlooking the bay
Fall asleep to the sounds of birds. Seals and foghorns. You do not hear any traffic from highway 1 because the property seats below the highway. Ask for #3. Great views. . The deck and windows need some cleaning but other than that, it was perfect for our needs.
Bodega Bay Beauty
Very comfortable studio apartment, one of only a few available over the water on Bodega Bay. Beautiful views of scenery and the abundant wildlife of Bodega Bay.
This is a real gem in a great location
This is a truly great property, clean, well-kept and very comfortable. The location can't be beat -- right on the water, or literally, over it. Daily visits from Sammy the seagull were a definite highlight -- he loved hanging around on the railing, keeping his eye on us. If you stay here, I recommend parking on one of the nearby streets, as the driveway is very narrow and steep. I didn't feel comfortable driving my car down that hill, so chose to remain up on a street and just walked down. In short, we loved it here and would definitely stay here again.
