We had a great stay here for the week this summer. The location is right on the Bay. The balcony shares the sights and sounds of the bay and it's wild life. We had a Seagull that came by every day begging for food. The sea otters were swimming near by. We could see fishing boats going in and out of the harbor. As Grizwald put it, it is not a Hilton or Marriott but it was unique and enjoyable to enjoy the smell of the salt water and the view. The landlady and son in law were very nice and helpful. I look forwardto going back again.

This is not a five star resort, if you come here expecting the Hilton you will be disappointed. I, however, would trade all the five star, over sanitized, cookie cutter resorts in the world for this location. This is a funky, dated, small furnished apartment that is better equipped than any business condo that I have ever been put up in.
It is on the water. Not close to the water, not steps from the water, not minutes from the water, On the water. There is a seal swimming by as I write this. We had intended to eat out but the location was so perfect we ended up living on appetizers and wine for 2 days. A roaring fire while a storm raged through followed by a calm so complete that you can't tell where the channel markers end and their reflection takes over.

We stayed 3 times at "The Bay's Edge" to bring our out of town guests. Everybody loved it. It is a very charming, comfortable place with excellent view, tastefully decorated with a fully equipped kitchen and modern luxuries such as flat TV and wireless. The landlady is very nice. I am surprised at the negative reviews. For us, staying in a historic old building was part of the charm. I highly recommend it to anybody who is seeking quiet, cozy place with a killer view.

My fiancé and I spent two nights in the 2 BR and were surprised at how different it looked from the pictures posted. It was very musty smelling and dated. Yes, it was well equipped, especially the kitchen, but it was not very clean. There were ants all over the counters both days. The beds were hard and the "luxury" linens literally had bleached out spots all over them. The bathroom was good sized but old and the plastic shower curtain was ancient. Ants all over the floor in there too. The driveway down to the very small parking area was very steep and difficult to maneuver with other cars there. We couldn't get the tv to work and had to call the owner to come up and try to figure it out. I guess we paid for the location because not much else was worth the price. It does have an interesting "history" but still not worth the $$$. It could be a fabulous place with lots of work, paint, a good thorough cleaning, and decent mattresses. Next time I will stay in one of the "newer" places next door or down the ways a bit. Overall, very disappointed and don't understand the 4 or 5 star reviews. Are you sure you stayed at the same place?

We spent a week at this property in the middle of September. The living area was great for 2 people and very
comfortable. A flat screen TV, DVDs and WiFi connection gave us all we needed. It was all very clean and well
stocked with cooking appliances and crockery etc. We moved the table to get the best view of the bay.
The bed was extremely comfortable and there was a good closet. A dresser would have been good for us as we
had clothes for an extended holiday, but we managed. The bathroom was well equipped although the shower
was a bit tired. Good water pressure though. The weather was cold for the first few days, and we did not realise
the rooms had heaters as well as a woodburning stove, but once we found them we were nice and cosy. The resident seagull was great fun and so trusting of people who fed it. The balcony was fantastic, and the views of
the water, the fog, the boats, seals, dolphins and loads of birds, made this an ideal holiday for us.
The only thing we found difficult was the steep path down to the house, and the tight turning for the car,
especially with another car there.
Good restaurants in the area, and Diekman's Bay Stores had everything we needed. Try their chicken curry
from the deli, it was excellent. Wildflour Bakery at Freestone worth a visit; also Fort Ross, Occidental, and the Russian River.
Thank you Mary Jane for renting us part of your home.
