Yes, it's up the coast- at least an hour after you get to Bodega. I happen to have a sports car, so while my wife held on we "played" a bit and had some fun. We all need to get away from the computer emails, the TV set, and the daily errands once in a while, and this place was perfect. The staff was superb, and took VERY GOOD care of us from start to finish. The rooms in the main house sit 15 feet from the cliff, and we left the door and window open at night and slept to the sounds of the surf. Breakfast both mornings was excellent and filling, and delivered to the room within 30 seconds of the requested time. We climbed a spiral staircase to get to our private jacuzzi that has its own set of windows looking out over the ocean (called the Bath Suite). The room was clean, the water hot, the towels and robes soft, the bed quite comfortable, and we started a fire both nights. We would recommend Cove Azul for dinner, about 6-7 minutes down the road. If the ocean calls to you and rejuvenates you as it does us, then don't miss this place.
