We have rented numerous houses on the Bodega Bay Golf Course. This house is far and away the best 4 bedroom house out there. We have rented this house annually for the past four years. We don't even look at other houses. Melony has this houses fully stocked and is great to rent from. Rest assure when you pick this house!
Look no farther for an upscale but cozy place to take a deep breath and forget about any tasks on your to-do list. The stunning Bay views with the ever-changing light are enough to transport you into a world of peace and beauty. My daughter and I took walks down the paths to the unusually picturesque beach where the waves crashed on the craggy rocks out in the water. The interior of the home is artistically designed with abalone shell insets in the beautiful stone and tile work. These touches together with the good lighting, the upscale furnishings and the physical situation of the house on the hill to take advantage of the views made for a truly delightful stay. There is no doubt this is a five star home.
Four couples from Marin wanting a weekend getaway chose Melony's house. She responded to emails in a prompt manner. We loved the house. Great views from the kitchen and living space. She has every kitchen tool/utensil you could think of and more. There are two sitting areas, one high top table surrounded by windows and a very nice dining table. The views look out to the golf course. We had beautiful weather, great sunsets, and meals. We ate in for breakfast and dinner since the house was so great and went out to lunch both days. We ate at The Tide and Fishetarian which were both good. There are two master bedrooms and two regular bedrooms. Beds were comfortable and bathrooms are very nice. We used the hot tub and the theatre (or the men did for football). The men golfed and the ladies went on a walk to the beach. Everyone enjoyed their stay and recommended coming back next year.
My husband and I, our 6 children and three girlfriends had a wonderful time in this beautiful house. It was relaxing and the views were majestic. We had a blast in nearby Occidental and enjoyed zip lining through the Redwoods! It's the perfect space for a large group to be together yet also have their own space. Meals were easy to prepare in the most completely stocked kitchen I've ever seen! Thank you Melony!
Our group thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay in this beautiful home. The gourmet kitchen was a dream to cook in and the large windows over looking the golf course provided gorgeous views and some very entertaining moments watching golfers on the hole right outside! The bedrooms more than comfortably accommodated everyone and the home media theater room is beyond compare. There were also great dining options (Terrapin Creek Cafe was a wonderful choice for dinner one night) and lots of activities to choose from all within a lovely 1 hour drive from the house. We hope to be back very soon!
Our group of friends has been getting away over the New Year for 14 years. This was the first time we were in Bodega Bay . This property is definitely tops!! It really is as great as the pictures online. Being winter at the northern CA coast there were rainy days but the media room made it much better. The process for rental was very smooth. We would do it again! The kitchen is very well equiped top of the line. The best restaurant we dined at was Terrapin Creek!!
From the moment we stepped inside this beautiful home, I could just feel the stress of a very busy job and 2 “very crowded” days in San Francisco melt away. The views were breathtaking from all angles of the house. Even though there were neighbors on either side, you never saw them. The house was situated so that all the main windows had gorgeous views of the ocean or the golf course.Our group of 7 spent a week in Bodega Bay and there was plenty of room in the house if you all wanted to be together or if you wanted some quiet time to read a book. We enjoyed dinner together every night using the large dining room table. Cooking in the lovely kitchen was a joy. Everything you could need was included. It just took a little time to find items because there was so much storage space.There were TVs in every bedroom, the living room and the media room downstairs. The directions on how to use the remote in the media room was very helpful. Coming from the Midwest, we are so used to having air conditioning during the hot and humid summer. There was no air conditioning here but you didn’t need it. The breezes coming off the ocean kept the house very cool. In fact, we had to use the fireplace a couple of times. Fireplace in July? That is unheard of!Melony was so good to work with. She was very responsive and didn’t mind answering my many questions. I would love to rent this vacation home again. We didn’t want to leave!
Eight of us came from around the country for a three day get-together. I found the home at this website and hoped it was as good as it looked. It was all I hoped for. Spacious and perfectly maintained in a beautiful location, it was so comfortable we felt we were in our own homes. All of us thank the owner for helping to create a memorable occasion.
Royal Pacific is indeed as the name describes, Royal! Everything you could possibly need from culinary utensils, luxurious accommodations to breath taking views. Eight of my best girl friends from all around the globe met up to celebrate a 60th birthday visiting Sonoma wineries and the Fairmont Willow Stream Spa. A weekend to remember in a fabulous location enjoying lasting friendships.Thanks Melony for opening up your beautiful home for all to enjoy!
Our family celebrated a belated Thanksgiving at the Royal Pacific. We stayed close to home for most of our visit and found the property to be just as luxurious and beautiful as it appears to be in the pictures. The house is beautifully-appointed (the owners have made a number of special touches throughout the home) and the floors and counters sparkled. The kitchen really is a dream and had everything we needed to prepare our Thanksgiving Day feast. The owners were very thoughtful and accomodating. The weather was great and the views were terrific. In short, we had the perfect family trip and we are already looking forward to our next visit.
Had a fun family gathering in this home. Owner is conscientious and responsible. She called when we arrived to make sure everything was okay. Everything very clean and well maintained with helpful information about the house. Kitchen was state of the art and well equipped. Upstairs bedrooms and bathrooms are very nice and spacious. Downstairs bedrooms are a bit small but comfortable and cozy with sliding glass doors to downstairs patio area. Dehumidifier in the laundry room was a bit noisy. The dehumidifier upstairs was quiet. The upstairs great room is spacious and light-filled with spectacular views, plenty of room for eating, gathering, playing games, etc.
This house rental was a gift to my wife for her 40th birthday. We took our families and had a wonderful week. Walking distance to the beach (okay, light hike), challenging golf course, but very fun, amazing views, beautiful home and very comfortable for large groups! The kitchen was well appointed and Melony was outstanding to work with from the beginning through the end.I highly recommend this home and will be back with my own family!Movie room was a hit with both the kids and the adults! Pool table, spa, you name it this house had it.
Our group of 12 had a fantastic time in this house. The upstairs living space is great for a large group -- two separate seatings for 8 in addition to bar stools in the kitchen made plenty of room for food, puzzles, games, chatting. The furnishings are very comfortable and lovely. Kids loved the home theatre and walks to the tidepools and beach. We roasted s'mores on the outdoor firepit and enjoyed out stay immensely. Owners are very helpful and the management office is friendly as well. We will definitely be back for a great rain or shine vacation/get-together.
Seven women, celebrating our 70th birthday year and over 60 years of friendship, enjoyed four nights at this stunning home. The house is gorgeous, the amenities spectacular - a perfect place to enjoy the quiet and beauty of the area. An excellent location from which to explore Armstrong Redwoods, Occidental, Point Reyes, the Bodega headlands and nearby restaurants, this home was a perfect place to relax amidst a very tasteful and immaculate setting. The owner was a pleasure to work with.
All the photos truly show this lovely home. Our group of 7 enjoyed the movie room, the hot tub and walking to the beautiful beach. We even saw deer on the beach which was quite cool. Bodega Bay is a fun place, close to wine tasting, zip lining and don't miss Bodega Head or having a dinner at Rivers Edge up the scenic road. If we get back to the area, this is definitely the place I would stay!!
We had a big birthday celebration and family reunion in this beautiful house, and the one next door, which we were able to rent with Melony's assistance. We were all impressed with the spotless house, opulent furnishings, fantastic kitchen,handy laundry room and elegant linens, as well as the spacious house and many custom architectural features. This combined with the gorgeous location, easy beach access, golf course and beautiful view made it a celebration to remember. Nobody wanted to go back to the real world!!
Beautiful home, tons of space and amenities. Perfect for our family getaway.
The house is well-appointed and well-equipped. Lots of good views. Comfortable and easy. Owners have thought of everything. With four couples, we could have used four en suite bathrooms, but no homes with that feature were available. Here the downstairs bedrooms share a bathroom. Terrific media room, hot tub, and fire pit. Nice walk down to beach. We enjoyed our stay!
We were 7 bookclub members looking for an adventure in Sonoma. Staying at this gorgeous house was wonderful. We couldn't be more comfortable. We decided to cook our meals in the gourmet kitchen, which has everything you could possibly need. We experienced the beauty of this area and the cheese trail.We were so busy, we didn't have time to enjoy all the amenities this house offered. The house was spotless and the beds were great. Only one oops, the dishwasher did not clean the dishes. No problem for 7 women to wash and dry dishes. We mentined this to the rental office. They were very nice.
We were in Awe when we entered the home. Everywhere you look there was a personal touch to detail. This home was designed and decorated very meticulously. Even though it was so nice, we still felt welcomed and like we were at "Home". The House was stocked with everything we needed. The photos from the website were spot on. My 7 year old son wants to spend his birthday there too! Now, that is saying something about this home if a seven year old wants to return for his big day. Melony many thanks for the unforgettable vacation.
