Beautiful house on the golf course. Quiet neighborhood and waking up to deer on the fairway every morning was nice to see. House is clean and comfortable. Master bed was so comfortable and the view from the patio was worth the trip here. We will be back soon and staying at the DD again. Not sure if I would want to stay anyplace else.The golf course has the most amazing view as well of the ocean a must if your a golfer. Thank you for renting your home out for others to enjoy.

Interior is more modern than most other listings. Very clean. Great for families of all ages. May be problematic for those who don't like stairs or short steps. The whole house is not on a single level but more of a multi-level home. Kitchen is spacious and comes with basic necessities (pots, pans, coffee maker, grinder, electric hot water kettle, dishes for adults and kids, utensils, knife set, dishwasher). Garage fits 2 cars. The driveway is very steep so may be problematic for those who are not used to parking on hills. Laundry machines are well stocked with soap and works great. The only issue was figuring out the heating/cooling system. Luckily we brought extra clothing and the ocean wind helps cool the place during the day. Large windows that lets in a lot of natural lights. There are some toys and video games but our little one was more fascinated at looking at the DVDs since she never seen those before. Mostly carpeted inside so no need to worry about slip and falls except in bathroom and kitchen. I recommend including a step ladder since I was a bit too short to reach the top shelves for items in the kitchen. Love the place and would recommend. I would love to try to book this again with my family as a quiet get-away from the city.

I have been renting homes in Bodega Harbour since the mid-1990s and this home is one of the best I've stayed in. It fit three couples nicely and the kitchen beautifully equipped with everything three foodie couples could ask for. The decor was lovely and contemporary, beds were excellent, and the location on the 14th fairway really fun. On clear days the view west was lovely.

Dabbling Duck is a beautiful house. The views were nice. It sits on the 14th fairway, so an occasional golf ball hitting the house flying by and watching the golfers retrieve their golf ball was entertaining. I would recommend this home for younger people and family. Not good for people who have knee and back problems, which all of did. Lots of stairs everywhere. We had an enjoyable time, despite the stairs.

Property Management company was very courteous, professional and helpful. The property has a great view of the bay and sits on the fairway of the 14th hole. The house was open and spacious and just a short drive to the beach and pro shop for golfers. There are multiple restaurants close to the house. Our famil had a great time staying at this property.

The Dabbling Duck was amazing. Not only was the location fantastic, but the house had every amenity we could ask for. The beautiful lighting was the perfect setting for a relaxing stay. This location would be perfect for a family as well as an adults-only trip. We loved winding down in the hot tub and enjoying the views from the patio. We look forward to returning to this location the next time we head to Bodega.

Truly a delightful spot! The house was perfect...location, view, furnishings, cleanliness. We could not have asked for anything better and I have already recommended this to all who would listen to me! We really appreciated the local suggestions for food, restaurants, sightseeing. The walk to the beach was invigorating and not too far. Very clear instructions for TV, gas fireplace & hot tub. We were a gals group of five. I would highly recommend for families or small groups. You will love this space!
The only thing I could not find was a broom and dustpan!

We have spent Thanksgiving in Bodega Bay for the past 21 years. This was our first time in Dabbling Duck and it did not disappoint. The home is very well equipped & has a beautiful view. Since we cook a full turkey dinner, we were surprised there was no garbage disposal, but we managed. Bodega Bay Escapes is a great company to rent from.

Dabbling Duck is BEAUTIFUL and in a great location. It has all the amenities you could ask for and amazing wildlife just outside the window(we saw a great blue heron catch, tenderize and swallow a mouse!).
My main comment about this property is that it was not our original reservation - that place was uninhabitable. But the staff at Bodega Bay Escapes listened to me, heard me and helped salvage a very important "best friends" weekend. Now Dabbling Duck will be our "forever" home away from home. Thank you Bodega Bay Escapes Staff!
