About Janice Herrmann
Coming to the Sonoma Coast every year for the past 25 years I dreamed of someday calling this amazing area home. In 2004 I decided it was time to focus on my dream. So after watching the area real estate listings diligently for the next 7 years (for just the right fit) it finally happened . Christmas Eve 2010 we decided to pack up the dog and take a road trip to check out the home as soon as it ... more +
Why This Property?
We love the Sonomoa Coast! When we found the Bay View House (in spite of its condition at the time) we fell in love with the convenient central location that is just a few minutes to town and restaurants, the Sonoma Coast Beaches and Bodega Head (our favorite place to go) We also loved the large 1/4 acre fenced yard and of course the hillside peek-a-boo view of the bay that is framed by trees ... more +
Unique Benefits
Large 1/4 acre fully fenced yard (a rarity at the coast). One of our favorite features was a pleasant surprise...the temperature/weather relative to the position of the home! Bay View is located in a micro-climate (known as the sun belt) which is often clear even when the coast and bay are foggy. Additionally, the position of the home allows the yard protection from the chilly ocean winds. The ... more +

Perfect in Every Way
Date of Stay: March 6th , 2016

We could not have found a better place to stay in Bodega Bay! We have made several trips to the Sonoma Coast. The Bay View is the cleanest and best equipped home we have ever rented. It has quality furnishings and a beautiful décor. We loved the convenient location and peaceful setting with a view of the trees and bay. Best Stocked Kitchen Ever! Comfy Beds & Mattress Warmers! Tons of Ambiance! Many Special Touches! Janice (the owner) is great to work with and really cares about your stay being perfect. We loved all the attention to detail and many amenities. Too many things to list! This will be our first choice for our stays in Bodega Bay in the future!

Beautiful, Comfortable and Convenient
Date of Stay: February 29th , 2016

The Bay View is in a great location for access to the restaurants, bay and beaches. The house is lovely and very clean, with beautiful décor and loads of amenities (candles on timers, towel warmers, heated mattresses, premium bedding, fleece blankets, and spare pillows.....). The home has the best stocked and most spacious kitchen of any home we have ever rented (not to mention it is so cute). The great room is perfect with gorgeous furnishings, and open floor plan that opens to the kitchen and dining area, and a wonderful sunroom that leads out to a great deck, yard with a fire pit, and large hot tub. There are several great walks from the house, and the beaches are a short 5 minute of less drive away (or about 20 minute walk) Janice (the owner) is a joy to work with and it is obvious she really has put a lot of care into both the home and your stay. This home is perfect for one or two couples (with 2 beds and 2 baths). We will definitely be back! This is our new favorite place in Bodega Bay!

Best Home We Have Ever Rented
Date of Stay: January 2nd , 2016

We have rented dozens of vacation rental homes through the years....and this is our favorite. The house is in a convenient and peaceful location with a lovely view of coastal redwoods, cypress, and Bodega Bay (which can be enjoyed from inside the home through the large windows, sitting in the cozy sunroom, or on the spacious deck in the large fenced yard). The home had a perfect layout with an open floor plan and too many amenities to mention. Here are a few - every dish, pot, pan, utensil (and even spice) you could dream of needing in the kitchen; beautiful and comfortable furnishings; tons of special touches including towel warmers, heated mattresses, quality linens; and a very attentive and kind owner (Janice was available to help when needed). The home has been totally updated and renovated with care. The hot tub was a special treat at the end of the day after exploring the nearby trails and walks. Our favorite walk was a few minutes up the road from the house to an amazing panoramic view that included all of Bodega Bay and the Pacific Ocean. Bay View is at the top of our list for accommodations in Bodega Bay!

Attention to detail, extra amenities, great location, fenced yard!
Date of Stay: December 27th , 2015

Bay View exceeded our expectations. The photos do not do this home justice. It is situated in a lovely community with easy access from your front door to walking trails and the Bodega dunes State Park. The house was immaculate and included features that made it special, such as mattress warmers on all beds, high quality linens and cookware, towel warmers, and thoughtful touches throughout the house. There is a fenced yard which was perfect for our little dog, and the deck was comfortable. Janice, the owner, was always available by text or phone and ready to answer any questions. The open spaced design was welcoming and the wrap around couch with ottoman was accommodating for the four of us. Both bedrooms were nicely appointed and shared a large bathroom. The entire place was furnished with unique furniture and art work, which really made it feel as if you were in a home and not just a rental. We highly recommend Bay View and commend Janice on the lovely home she has created to share with others.

Welcoming, clean home with attention to detail
Date of Stay: December 10th , 2015

I have never written a review for anything before - not a vacation rental, restaurant, or shop - that’s how much I loved this home. Bay View House is everything you’d want in a rental, and more. It’s extremely clean and nicely renovated. We cooked all our meals at home and the kitchen has everything you need and is much better equipped than “standard” rentals – two ovens, plenty of pots and pans, plates, serving dishes, cutting boards, bowls, and even standard pantry items. The hot tub was perfect to relax in after walking around the area in the mid-December cold and drizzle. Plenty of towels – both bath and for the hot tub – are provided for all the guests. Janice, the owner, responds quickly and clearly loves her home and guests. Her attention to detail is impressive, from the cute ties around the towel sets to the candles on timers; from the heated mattresses and towel warmers to the dog skunk kit; from the welcome bottles of wine to the stash of toiletry supplies in case you forgot something; from the supply of cozy blankets to the adorable coastal/beach decor. When the power went out the morning of our last day due to a big storm, she even offered to let us stay an extra night so we didn’t have to drive home in the rain and wind. We will be staying here again if we return to Bodega!
