        Perfect Vacation Rental

        Our group of 8 people stayed in Faro in mid-July and enjoyed ourselves immensely. The room configuration was perfect for our group of couples, singles and teens. Our young adult son ended up staying in the TV room downstairs. Having lots of bathrooms and ample bedrooms meant that we all rested comfortably and enjoyed hanging out in the common space. Because the location is more remote from restaurants, we ended up cooking almost every meal in the house. The kitchen was very well stocked (one of the best we've enjoyed), and had a great layout with the adjoining dining area. The views from the house are stunning. It was the perfect setting to unwind with friends and family. Fernanda & David were so easy to work with and only a phone call away when we had questions. Thank you for stocking the house with supplies and making our friends/family reunion such a relaxing and comfortable event!

        5/5 Excellent

          Beautiful home & amazing views!

          We had a small family reunion here and we LOVED our stay here. We were a party of 7 adults, 2 toddlers and 2 kids. The kids had a blast at the beach which is super close. The photos simply don't do justice to the views from this house, it is magnificent. The kitchen was awesome as well, and we spent a lot of time cooking and grilling. We spotted several deer around the property and went for walks in the beautiful neighborhood. I personally loved the fact that many of the bedrooms came with attached bathrooms, made getting ready easier :-). The host was quick to respond to any questions I had.

            Beautiful views! Great location!!

            This house is the perfect location for a fun filled family getaway. The views of Dillon Beach are breathtaking. The kitchen is well stocked. The bedrooms are beautiful with very comfortable beds. Coffee on the patio in the morning, watching the deer run through the hills was my favorite part of my vacation. Fernanda responds to your every need quickly. I’m hoping we can come here again soon.

              Christmas without Sports T.V.

              Not being technically savvy on WiFi T.V. we assumed that we would be able to watch Network Television in real time. Unfortunately this house does not have Network cable T.V. . We had planned our weekend around watching the NFL and NBA games between our normal Christmas activities. We have been coming to the Bodega Bay Area for over 25 years and have always been able to watch Network T.V. we thought for the amount of rent we were paying this would be the same situation. The owner explained that he and I suppose his entire family do not care to watch NFL or NBA sports. Seriously can't the cost of cable be added to the rental fees? So we missed all of the key games played over the weekend. This really ruined our Christmas Weekend. The house itself is nice and is well supplied with utensils , glassware, plates, pans, etc. etc. It was apparent by reviewing the owners photos in the hallway that the house was modified to accommodate the families of the owners.and their children. Note: They are a beautiful looking family. The bathrooms are nice however, the marble floors are easy to slip on, if soap is spilled and there are no handrails in the showers. This is not an A.D.A. equipped house. Given that you are requested to not wear shoes in the house it is easy to slip on the hardwood floors if you are wearing socks. Also the bottom step of the hardwood stairwell blends in with the floor causing the step to be missed when descending the stairwell. We also noted that the ceiling lights in the lower downstairs bedroom on the left flicker and will not stay on. So we did not use them. The cause of this condition could be a serious electrical problem that might cause a fire. The communal area is small and the furniture uncomfortable and old compared to other houses we have rented in Bodega Bay. . We made the best of the weekend but would not recommend this house to anyone with a disability or an interest in watching sports while they vacation. We did have a couple of beautiful sunsets but had to go out into the street to photograph them because the neighbors house blocks the view. Other than that what I have written above it was Feliz Navidad. Sincerely, Buck J. Schwan
