RECENT GUEST COMMENT; OCEAN BLUFF SERENITY VACATION HOME: “Wonderful Airbnb experience! A professional rental agency runs the place and was prompt in responding, clear communicating guest expectations and provided seamless check in details. Gorgeous views, and spotless house. We saw whales breeching from the kitchen windows within minutes of arrival. It’s a fun location for day trips in the area. The sea ranch, point arena, Bodega Bay are all an easy day trip. There is no beach access at the house but we enjoyed a day at stump beach which is a quick drive. Would love to go back again.” 


A most treasured, exclusive, private, gated location, along the vast Pacific in Timber Cove, just 20 minutes North of Jenner, Ca, via one of the most scenic coastal drives in America. The Pacific Ocean, sunrise, sunsets, moon and stars all swirl and dance together here, at Ocean Bluff Serenity, along the western edge of infinity.

The Grey Whale Migration.

Grey Whale migration south begins in January. The whales begin their journey at their summer feeding grounds off Arctic waters of the Bering, Chukchi and Beaufort Seas. They travel down along the Pacific Coast to their winter calving lagoons off Baja California, Mexico.

In March the whales migrate north, with their young, along the Sonoma Coast with the mothers and their calves even closer to shore for protection.

The shower runs annually from October 6-10 and peaks this year on the the night of the 8th. The first quarter moon will set shortly after midnight leaving fairly dark skies for observing.

November 24 - Conjunction of Venus and Jupiter. A conjunction of Venus and Jupiter will be visible on November 24. The two bright planets will be visible within 1.4 degrees of each other in the evening sky. Look for this impressive sight in the western sky just after sunset.

It peaks this year on the night of the 13th and morning of the 14th. Unfortunately the nearly full moon will block out many of the meteors this year, but the Geminids are so bright and numerous that it could still be a good show. Best viewing will be from a dark location after midnight. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Gemini, but can appear anywhere in the sky.

December 22 - December Solstice. The December solstice occurs at 04:19 UTC.

December 26 - New Moon. The Moon will located on the same side of the Earth as the Sun and will not be visible in the night sky. This phase occurs at 05:15 UTC. This is the best time of the month to observe faint objects such as galaxies and star clusters because there is no moonlight to interfere.

A partial eclipse will be visible throughout most of Asia and northern Australia.
