SUNNY, UPDATED HOUSE A BLOCK FROM PT. REYES NAT'L SEASHORE

Bolinas House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This light-filled house is on a level lot with a completely fenced back yard, with wooden deck, barbecue and lots of roses. The living-dining-kitchen area has peaked ceilings, an open floor plan and a wall of windows to the back yard and a gas stove-fireplace. There is another deck by the front door to catch the late afternoon sun.

Walk out the front door and turn west onto the quiet, virtually traffic-free dirt roads of the Bolinas' 'big mesa.' In two short blocks you are at the southern border of Pt. Reyes National Seashore -- a huge, grassy meadow leading from a horse ranch over the the bluffs above the Pacific (on a clear day you can see the Farallones). Or walk a few blocks south to overlook the surfers off Bolinas and Stinson Beach and to San Francisco and Devil's Slide further south, and then continue down the road to town and the beaches.

a wonderful place

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 stayed at this lovely house for two nights and had a wonderful time. The house is charming and well laid out, the gardens beautiful, and the location is fabulous --a great base for walking and exploring the incredible National Seashore area. And the town of Bolinas is a trip back in time! There is a variety of outdoorsy things to do in the area, and we only began to explore, so hope to return soon!

reconnect with nature and family

  • 5 of 5
I am still relishing the calm and focus i regained while staying at the Dogwood rental sept 3 through 6th. It was so nice to NOT have cable tv in the living room! This allowed my partner and i to talk. the only thing around this house is nature, green, calm , and resplendant. the living room and kitchen area are very sunny. I LOVED the front door. It opens in the middle so you can let the warm breezes from the Mesa in. Its like that door Mr. Ed had, that opens at the middle. this was great when having our two dogs there. it created a great flow through the house when it was a sunny warm day. the cell [hones and internet access worked well. the backyard is really secure for our dogs. the bed was very comfy. bring special dvds to watch on the great tv in the front bedroom!! bath tub is too small for soaking, but the shower works great. the bbq grill was great although like most Webers the air vents at bottom were rusted shut open (keeping vent screw lubed with occassional WD40 keeps em working great) Lots of briquets. the backyard is very relaxing. Bring sunscreen! the sun umbrella was awesome on the wrot iron patio furniture table and chairs (seats 6). We were surprised to not be able to find an address for the house. luckily we knew were it was from years ago . i brought my mt. bike and my 12 foot Mickey Munoz longboard for surfing. If you bring big toys ask about how to put them in the back yard . The only way into the backyard is through the off limits side door off the driveway. i ended up putting my surfboard and bike in the front porch. Luckily it has enough vegetation to camaflouge the bike and board. If you dont want to leave a bike or board on your vehicle its something to ask about. I loved the bike ride out on poplar road that goes out to the ocean . great place to bring a sturdy bike. We were a bit super overly concerned about the septic system and how it works but it all went well. its a great price for what it gives. lucky to have found it!!! cant wait to return.

Cute house in tranquil area

  • 5 of 5
Me and my husband and son stayed in this house for a weekend. It was exactly as advertised and the owners were wonderful to deal with. The house was fully stocked and the beds were very comfy. Our son loved the fenced in yard. Would definitely recommend to others.

Lovely place for a family

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here with my two boys for nine days, and couldn't be happier. The house is extremely quiet, comfortable, and well laid out. There are windows everywhere, so there is always lots of light, even when the fog was in. The kitchen is well equipped, and the laundry room made my life lots easier! Our email contacts with the owners were friendly and helpful. The beach in Bolinas has great surfing for beginners (and the 2 Mile Surf Shop gave my husband a great lesson). We went hiking in Point Reyes, horseback riding, to Stinson Beach for a change, and spent many hours playing games, etc in the quiet, pleasant house. This was a great vacation spot for us.

A lovely retreat within easy reach of the Bay Area

  • 5 of 5
This clean, light-filled house made a wonderful, quiet place to retreat. Clean, simple furnishings are complemented by lovely artwork on the walls. The beds were cozy and comfortable. The kitchen had everything needed to cook and serve complete dinners. There are wonderful walks right out the front door, and of course the town of Bolinas has its own unique personality and charm. I'll definitely go back. This would be a good place from which to take off for day hikes at Pt. Reyes National Seashore, or to explore west Marin County on a weekend. It would be cozy in winter with the gas stove in the living room, and delightful in warm weather with barbeques on the back deck. It was a perfect place for spending time writing and playing the guitar. The owners are helpful and considerate, and the listing accurately describes and depicts the property.

Beautiful Yard, Nice Home

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I and our two dogs stayed here in the spring of 2009 for three weeks. The property was exactly like the pictures showed. It was spacious and the yard was perfect for our dogs. The bed was comfortable, and there was room for our bay area family to come up and visit.
The neighborhood was great for walking and bike riding. It was a nice walk or ride down to the town and the beach, but a climb back up the hill!
Bolinas is charming and the beach is awesome. We enjoyed visiting other communities in the area, and just sitting in the backyard and listening to the birds.
Property owners were very flexible as our plans changed a bit between booking and arrival. It was a wonderful experience, and as much as I'd love to stay there again, we need to stay closer to the Bay Area when we come.
Thanks!

15 minute walk to town and beaches, two blocks from southern border of Pt. Reyes National Seashore with great hiking along the coast, quiet location in the sunny part of Bolinas mesa - great walking and biking on calm, rural dirt roads (3 houses off paved Mesa Road), close to Neiman Ranch, in the summer there are lots of blackberries nearby to pick for dessert.
