We are a group of 7 women who have had a girls' weekend in Bodega for the last 16 years. We have rented many houses, but we all agreed that Oyster Catcher was one of the best. The star feature of the house is the kitchen. We all love to cook and usually haul some kitchen item with us, as so many houses are not very well equipped. That was not the case in this kitchen. It had almost everything you could want and more! It was very well organized as well. The only suggestion to be made would be to have more than one cutting board that can be washed in the dishwasher.
The living room was very comfortable, with a giant sectional, that fit all of us. There were two additional chairs aimed toward the beautiful view.
The beds were comfortable, and there were enough beds to use. The only drawback was only having one bathroom downstairs for 4 women.
One point we loved was that we were able to unload our stuff up a level, rather than carry everything up a bunch of stairs to a second story kitchen.
All in all it was a great experience in this beautiful Bodega Bay home!!

This is our third time staying at this lovely home! The views are amazing! We love watching all of the wildlife. The kitchen is supplied with everything you could possibly need. There are plenty of things to do from hiking, golfing, or spending many a day at the many beaches and they are all very close by. There is a wonderful store called Diekmann's if you run out of anything. They have everything, even a deli, a great variety of fresh produce, fresh hot pizza you can order and much more! Plenty of wonderful restaurants and shops nearby too! Or if you want to just stay in, relax and watch a sports game or movie on TV, there is a very large comfy couch to do that. We can't wait to go back again next year!

Following a successful chemo update and after the extensive Covid lockdown we all experienced, running out to the ocean for a calming 5 night experience was everything we needed.
Working with BB Escapes is also a great experience. They are very professional, very helpful and really take the customer's needs as job one.
Oyster Catcher is one of the best homes we have stayed at out at Bodega Harbor. And we have rented more than a dozen over a number of years.
The home is everything and more than what is represented. Easily the best outfitted and equipped home. It is also architectural satisfying and the views are amazing.

This is our second time at this wonderful home. We were grandparents with our two daughter and their 4. children. Each of us had a separate area and could retreat whenever we felt like it! The home is very, very well equipped. Not all TVs are "smart Tvs" But the main living room has a smart TV.The home was well serviced before our arrival and also sanitized. We would return to this home which has beautiful views. Beach access is a bit tricky.

We love staying at this beautiful, cozy home and highly recommend it! This is our family's second time staying here and we will be coming again next year! Bodega Bay is a quaint town with so much to offer. There are so many activities close by and something for everyone. Golfing, hiking, whale watching and excellent beaches (Doran Beach being one of them). Beachcombing, kite flying as well as beaches with great tide pools) or just relaxing enjoying a picnic and the ocean air!
If you like to fish, we took Miss Vic's Sportfishing charter and had an excellent time with Captain Mike. We caught a myriad of fish, salmon, rockfish and Ling cod. It was a wonderful experience.
When we were not out and about, we enjoyed all of the amenities this house has to offer! We love to cook and thoroughly enjoyed cooking in this kitchen. Downtime included watching TV/movies on their comfortable sofa or just enjoying the view. The view is stunning and very serene not to mention, the sunsets are gorgeous. Lots of nature to enjoy as well (deer, rabbits, Quail and more!)
There are many wonderful restaurants to enjoy! Also, if you like shopping, The Tides Gift Shop has a wonderful variety of items.

Guests enjoyed the vacation rental with my family and the layout of the home gave everyone their privacy.

Excellent location with beautiful ocean views from much of the house. Roomy bedrooms, comfy beds, plenty of towels and extra linens. The kicthen was very well equipped with just about every cooking utensil and appliance you can think of (we brought some of our own, not knowing what would be there, which turned out to be unnecessary). Large living area with a big, comfy u-shaped section and a big dining room table that seats 10. On the humorous side, there were laminated signs and labels on just about every wall, drawer & cabinet -- with rules, instructions and notifications -- most of which stated the obvious. Perhaps the owner got a good deal on a Dymo label maker or laminating machine :). Overall, this is a great house and one we'd definitely consider coming to again.

This is a beautiful home that has spectacular ocean views. We just loved sitting every morning with a cup of coffee and looking out at the ocean and other landscapes. Saw lots of wild life while we were there. The kitchen is well stocked, you don't need to bring anything but your food! Bedrooms are wonderful and cozy. Definitely a 5 star experience. Went to the beach a couple of days and even saw some whales. Did beachcombing and enjoyed the tidepools. Tried crab potting and a seal got our bait! LOL! Our sons played golf and thoroughly enjoyed the course. Found a great pizza place as well as wonderful restaurants. Had a fabulous week at the Oyster Catcher! Was very relaxing! We are returning again next year!

Oyster Catcher was a magnificent residence within which to house our entire family including our two sons, their wives and our three granddaughters (ages 6, 5, and 2). With spectacular views of Bodega Bay and the Pacific and near access to a lightly used beach (steep path), we enjoyed a week of family fun filled with active days and restful evenings. The accommodations were more than adequate: a well stocked kitchen with cookware, appliances, serving dishes and vessels; bathrooms with towel, wash cloths and sunders; in short everything you need to make your home away from home. My wife and I were well pleased as we celebrated our 50th anniversary. You can’t miss if you choose Oyster Catcher for your next vacation.

House was nice and staff was great. There are a few maintenance issues that need to be immediately addressed..... The raidiant floor heaters don’t work worth a **** ( guests were constantly complaining even with space heaters) and the master bath jacuzzi tub doesn’t have hot water (a big no no for the price of the rental)! Other then those problems the House is good. But a heater that doesn’t work in winter is a great way to upset family and friends. No on liked my “put on a sweater” response. And the wifey went bananas over her jacuzzi tub that didn’t work. I just roll with the punches. House was beautiful staff was great and sent a tech out right away. Although the tub was never fixed it did show the staff did what they could on short notice. The owner needs to shell out some money to have new water lines ran to the tub and a radiant floor specialist come take a look!

My family and friends and I have stayed at this house many times; my sister has booked it in her name many times also (Karen Kehr Goodwin). We love the view and the spaciousness. The last two times I have rented this home (October and now), the downstairs bedroom ceiling has leaked. This time it leaked right over the bed and saturated the one end side. Also, the coffee grinder was broken. Other than those two things it was great as usual. The management company was responsive to our needs. Thank you.

We enjoyed a wonderful non-traditional Christmas experience at the Oyster Catcher House this year. There was plenty of room for our large family. The kitchen was stocked with every tool we needed to prepare our Christmas feast. And the view was exactly what I was hoping for. We were fortunate that the weather was beautiful during our stay, although the view would have been just as mesmerizing if it had rained. We drove 10 minutes to Doran Beach to fly kites on Christmas Day. The Oyster Catcher House was everything that I had hoped for. Thank you for a wonderful place to relax for a few days! We will definitely be coming back for more.

The location of the Oyster Catcher home was fantastic. I have stayed at other homes at Bodega Bay and this is one of the best. The views alone make for a great trip. It is the only place in Sonoma County where you can see the sunrise and the sunset out of the same window! Rooms were large and clean. The only mishap is the amount of time it takes to warm up the house. We arrived during the winter, turned on the heat. It is radiant heat, so took over 24 hours to heat the whole house up. Not much of a patio area either.

This home was perfect for our extended family.
Plenty of room and privacy for all.
Well stocked. Clean and all the rules spelled out to a T. Driveway a little difficult to navigate and neighbors frowned on our street parking, but we had 5 cars and they did not all fit in the garage and driveway. 8 people, 5 cars.

The property was just as described; beautiful views, fun things to do since it was centrally located and very comfortable. Kitchen was well stocked for those that prefer to cook while traveling. House was beautiful and comfortable inside and out. Would have liked to have known there was no AC as the house got hot during the day. Most windows did not have screens on them so we couldn't leave them open. Beds were too soft and pillows were terrible. Master bath smelled musty. It would have been nice to be able to enjoy patios without walking all the way around the house or through someone's bedroom so because of this, we didn't sit outside at all. Guests should have access to the garage code for convenience. Outside of these minor details, the family had great fun and would consider this house if we ever vacation in the area again.

Overall five stars on the view and the beds were very comfortable. The house has the wrong address 20008 .Also, very good that the kitchen had everything you need.The bad things were the furniture placement in the master bedroom. No Internet in the second master bedroom . They put the old sectional with the bed in that room so my daughter had to sleep with her mother in law! The new up stairs sectional is all wrong for that room. Whoever is in charge of furniture placement should consult a designer because the master bed and nightstands should be on the opposite wall so as the night stands are near the bed and the moon doesn't hit you in the eyes while you sleep through the upper Windows . The sectional upstairs needs to be L shaped with two chIrs in the window so as not to block the view and so you can get to the window from the kitchen without walking all the way around.
Also, it is pretty far walk to the beach and kind of confusing to find the house.
The town is small but good food and beautiful. Overal glad we went because nothing is perfect.

As usual, we thoroughly enjoy the Oyster Catcher. The Bodega Bay Escapes staff are the most easy going, friendly people.
Our only complaint is the master bathroom shower is in need of attention. The tiles and flooring are worn and quite molded/mildewed. Also seemed the master bed upstairs is pretty worn...
Otherwise, it's just a gorgeous home with the most wonderful view whether watching a storm blow in or clear blue skies. Great beach access nearby!

We have stayed at Bodega Bay for the last five years and this house is the best yet. The house was very well maintained. The view was amazing, the kitchen was top of the line, and the linens were perfect. And, it was really nice to be able to park off of the street and even in a garage. We hope we will be able to stay here again.

We had a wonderful time. The house was exceptionally well furnished. My adult kids enjoyed the puzzles and I found the kitchen was complete. We have decided next time we will try to stay for a week. We are planning another trip to Bodega Bay as we enjoyed the stay so much. The house was well maintained. We found some outside light bulbs burned out and rental agent had someone replace them the next day. I felt they were most helpful and wanted things to be well cared for too

This propert will be "a hard act to follow", planning on a return next year... Not sure we'll be able to come close!!! The house itself was exquisitely appointed, layout, kitchen, dishes , spices, furnishings were beautiful without being over the "top", very welcoming, comfortable... The view... Without being directly over the ocean/beach, was unsurpassed!!! The staff was very friendly, helpful and responsive... Thanks Kendra... I would HIGHLY recommend this property and Bodega Bay Escapes.... See you soon....

Oyster Catcher home has been the finest home we've ever rented in Bodega Bay over the past 20+ years. It is clean, well-kept and has a fully stocked gourmet kitchen. We have stayed in places where there are not enough cooking utensils or pots/pans. Only suggestions for improvement are a new BBQ as the current one was unusable (and we've been told a new one has been ordered), and unusable broken sofa bed downstairs. Hopefully that too will be fixed. We would return.

Incredible view.

Very nice home. Well stocked kitchen and nicely updated. Issues were 1)seemed too hot all the time and we couldn't get it to cool off 2)there was garbage in the garage left by the last tenants that was not removed and smelled 3) there was not provision for lighting the wood in the fireplace. The property manager, when called, said that it is up to the Owner to supply, but, did drop off fire starters. This didn't make sesnse to us. Why advertise a fireplace if you can't use it.

We loved Oyster Catcher. It has more amenities than any of the other homes we've stayed at in Bodega, and we've been going for 20 years. They thought of everything that would make our stay perfect, right up to the softie blankets in a basket to cuddle up with. Beautiful location! The labels on everything gave us many laughs as well.

I was looking for an ideal location for a surprise 60th birthday party for my partner. Oyster Catcher turned out to have been absolutely perfect for what we were looking for. The 4 bedrooms are all spacious and situated for privacy, and the furnishings and linens appear to be recently updated. The common living area has a huge u-shape sofa overlooking the ocean, and it was the perfect setting for relaxing, playing games, social gathering. Supplies and utensils were plentiful - we didn't lack for anything.

The only areas for upgrade would be that when we first arrived the home had a strong odor of cleaning fluid from having been recently cleaned, and the lights were so high tech that they were difficult to figure out how to operate! Other than that - this home exceed my expectations for a rental home and I could see us returning to it.

Each February, our book club journeys up to Bodega Bay for our annual retreat. Its a time for us to discuss our books, celebrate our friendship and enjoy the ocean. This year we had 100% attendance and needed a larger space that could handle 9 demanding women. Our previous place was wonderful but we just grew out of it....

After much research, we agreed on the Oyster Catcher and it exceeded our expectations! As each of us arrived and toured the home we were all amazed at the view, beauty and how there was no stoned unturned and detailed left out for this home. The layout of the house is so well done, there were times when we had to do a head count to see where everyone was...We enjoyed 4-days and 3-nights of pure fun and relaxation. Without question, this is our new book club retreat home. Bodega Bay Escapes was very professional and top notch. We cannot wait until February 2015.

Our son was married in Sebastopol, and we hosted family and out-of-country guests (9) for 4 nights. It was important for us to have plenty of bathrooms/showers/hair dryers, etc. for everyone to get ready for our son's Rehearsal Dinner and Wedding. The lay-out was perfect for that many people and made getting ready to go anywhere very easy. The women especially liked the magnifying mirrors in each bathroom. For as many windows and lights, for some reason is seemed hard to get the right lighting for putting on make-up (some of the light bulbs were also out) but the beds were incredibly comfortable, the view spectacular, and the sitting areas comfy and accommodating. We loved the close access to the beach as well. I would say that the only complaint we had, was that a few of the kitchen items we either broken or not in the best working condition. Having said that, it did not deter us in the least, and we would stay there again in a heartbeat.

We rented the Oyster Catcher for a birthday weekend. Eleven women ascended on the property and were all very impressed. The window filled property offers great views from most rooms and is nicely furnished. Kitchen is well appointed with all the appliances you will need and dishes as well. You might want to bring some sharp knives!
It's a short walk down the cliff to the beach for an afternoon stroll. Large hot tub for the evening. Comfy couch for hanging out and lots of sleeping areas for a large group.
I do wish that there had been a retaining wall of sorts for the BBQ because it won't stay lit in the wind and it's usually windy in the evenings in this area!
The queen sized sleeper that the home's description contains is broken so if you are considering it as part of your sleeping space; think again. I do think they should replace this as it could prove very dangerous to someone!
Overall, this is a wonderful get-away house for a group of people! We loved it!

We had a wonderful stay in the Oyster Catcher over the 4th of July week. The house is in a great location with access to a quiet beach below the house and easy access to relaxing Doran Beach from the clubhouse. The Oyster Catcher was comfortable for our family vacation at dinner-time with its large dining room and table as well as providing quiet spots to enjoy a good novel or share the beach experience with email pals. The kitchen was well-equiped and a gathering place as meals were prepared AND had a great ocean view from the sink at cleanup time. Three great bathrooms helped to get the family out the door early in the day to visit wonderful Sonoma wineries within a 30-minute drive from the front door. The bedrooms provided a wonderful sanctuary at bedtime with a home design providing separation and space. Throw in the gas BBQ and the outdoor spa and the property had everything we need for a great vacation. BTW, the July 4th fireworks over Bodega Bay were a real bonus.

This is the 2nd time a group of friends & I have stayed at this wonderful location. The house is amazing. Beautiful kitchen, bathrooms & very comfortable beds. Very comfortable with 8 people but could probably fit a couple more if they are ok with the fold out couch. Hot tub works great. The best part of this location is waking up to an over the top view of Bodega Bay from the living room. It is just stunning. Lots of walking trails & nearby beach access makes going out just as fun as staying in. What a great place!

The only issues we experienced was that the windows needed cleaning. The view is so wonderful we didn't want anything to disturb it. Also the downstairs fold out bed is broken and the mattress falls through. It was this way in March also and needs replacement. Otherwise, we love this house and will return many times during the year. Thank you for its creation and the attention you have given it. I had my 60th birthday there and it was grand. The Kalembers

Manager's Response

Glad You guys enjoyed your stay! The home is wonderful and has fantastic views! The windows get that sea air build up so we're on a regular window cleaning program sorry you experienced it not at it's prime! We'll make sure to get him out there ASAP thanks. As far as that hide a bed downstairs. It has always been broken and is not advertised. It's meant purely for a couch as an extra seating area for the TV. The only functional hide a bed in the home is in the living room center couch. Hopefully that wasn't a huge inconvienece but just so you're aware the home owners aren't planning on replacing that, which is why it isn't advertised. Glad you guys enjoyed your stay! Thanks for the feedback!

We got an upgrade to this house because the other house that we had originally reserved got double booked by the operating company.
The location of this house is superb with excellent views.
We would have liked a bigger living room mainly because we had small kids with us. The staircase could not be child proofed, so this house would be a problem for very young children needing childproofing. Other than this, our stay was nice and comfortable.

The house is wonderfully located at the SW side of the community and has great living room view to the sea and farm on the hill. Spa is awkwardly located as is the BBQ. The kitchenware was stocked pretty well and a nice Wolf gas cooktop. Bring your iPod and plug it right in, but internet was more unreliable than steady on-line. Master bedroom is isolated on one side of the house and very quite. The other rooms are also very nice and comfortable with window light.

Everything was perfection! Oyster Catcher was the scene for our small, but very special wedding. We were 9 in total. We had our ceremony on Doran Beach and went back to Oyster Catcher where we prepared the best meal we've ever had in the gourmet kitchen. The crab were caught fresh that day and the steaks were grilled outside.
To top things off, the most tremendous sunsets displayed themselves every evening as we stood watching from the huge bay of windows.
A most special time and place for us! Much Love!

We arrived at the home with big hopes and expectations. We were not disappointed. The pictures were very accurate and the gourmet kitchen was exactly that. You will find everything you would need, except room for food storage. All cabinets are full of dishes, pots and pans, and appliances, leaving only one tall narrow cabinet for food.
The furniture was all in great shape and very comfortable. The beds were like being at home. The only thing I would change is the washer and dryer need to be full size.
The views from all rooms in the front of house are breathtaking. We were blessed with sunshine every day, which added to the experience and views.
We would definately rent the Oyster House again, and would highly reccommend it.
GREAT HOUSE, THANK YOU FOR SHARING YOUR PLACE.
