We rented houses at the coast for over 15 years & this one has moved up the list to #1. Our booking was confirmed within 24 hours & my questions were answered by Dave & Meghan in a timely fashion. We were impressed by the fully stocked kitchen, the comfortable beds, fluffy robes & slippers in each closet. Loved hanging out at the outdoor fire pit & the nice fireplace inside for those less hardy. Blankets were provided to snuggle up on the huge couch & relax. We were out on the front deck during the day watching the waves, There is an unobstructed view of Blind Beach & Goat Rock. Lots of wildlife to observe while walking with my LEASHED k-9 buddy Jagger. To sum it up. this is a little bit of Heaven on earth & we'll be back. Thanks for sharing your amazing place.

“Heaven”
Reviewed December 9, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

I read once that heaven was an individual's most cherished, beautiful and wonderful memory lived for eternity. Our stay at Goat Rock House was our version of heaven. And, eternity would have proved too short a time to enjoy this home's beauty. The panoramic ocean views are spectacular. And although arguably the coast line is replete with spectacular views there's only one "Goat Rock view" from the living room of this one-of-a-kind home. The owners have gone to great lengths (for which they should be applauded) in providing their guests with impeccable amenities from Mikasa China, restaurant worthy cookware, an outdoor butane heater on the wraparound deck to Egyptian cotton robes and sound machines in each of the 3 bedrooms (Sound machines no less! Only a geek like me could appreciate that extra touch of class). The ubiquitous phrase "oh, look at this!" could be heard the entire duration of our stay as we found yet another little touch of class provided by the owners. If you take anything away from this review then take with you these two words: "peace" and "beauty" for you will surely find them in abundance at Goat Rock House

Visualize total privacy nestled in trees overlooking the rugged northern California coast! The accommodations were extremely comfortable with high quality amenities, linens, furniture, kitchen appliances and cookware. We enjoyed sitting on the front deck watching spectacular scenery. A day trip to Bodega Bay where we picnicked at Doran Beach was delightful. A dinner at River's End in Jenner was a grand finale. We definitely plan to return.

“Fabulous Location”

We enjoyed a lovely stay at this beach house overlooking Goat Rock. The view through the windows is spectacular and constantly changing. The house was spotlessly clean, the kitchen was very well equipped for serious cooks--except no oyster knife! Seriously, we stayed there with another couple and had a great time cooking and eating our way through the local seafood. Megan and Dave, the owners, do a great job of making sure the necessities are there for cooking, beach activities, or kayaking. They really went out of their way to make sure we were happy. We enthusiastically recommend this place and will be returning ourselves.
