SPECTACULAR VIEW BAYFRONT GETAWAY -- GREAT FOR FAMILY OR FRIENDS!

Point Reyes Station House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

OUR BEACH COTTAGE 'Helen's Hideaway' is a wonderful setting for a family or friends vacation. We listened to our visitors and recently upgraded the cottage to enhance your comfort and enjoyment of this spectacular setting. This is a simple and well-maintained beach cottage, located right on Tomales Bay.

NEW ADDITION -- INTERNET ACCESS AND NEW FLAT SCREEN TV with Sony Entertainment Network, Netflix and connection for your laptop (pc).

The center of this cottage is a large living room with floor to ceiling windows overlooking Tomales Bay. You can experience the Bay from anywhere on the first floor. It's a great place to watch wildlife while you have an intimate or family meal, read a novel in front of the fire, or just sit and relax.

The house has a master bedroom downstairs with an adjoining bathroom with shower. Upstairs has 2 bedroom, one with a queen size bed and one with twin beds. There is a bathroom on the second floor, with a tub and overhead shower.

The house is surrounded by a deck and has a dock that reaches out into the bay. It's a perfect place to watch the sunset, sip a glass of wine and just enjoy the bliss of beautiful Tomales Bay.

The house is walking distance to the Tony's Seafood Restaurant, The Marshall Store, kayaking, and Hog Island Oysters. Enjoy day trips to Point Reyes Seashore, the Russian River, local wineries, whale watching, etc. We are very well located to take advantage of all the West Marin has to offer!

If you are not up for driving around, its a great place to sit in front of a roaring fire with friends and loved ones. We have a collection of old DVD and videos and a paperback library. If you like to fish, you can throw a line out from the deck or the pier. Digging clams under the house is another afternoon activity. Small charcoal barbecue available to cook your catch!

This is not an elegant house, but comfortable, family-friendly and situated in the midst of spectacular beauty.

Weekend warmup

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I enjoyed a great weekend in Marshall away from the chilly Midwest. Im related to the owner for full disclosure and have been here before but its been much improved since I was last here about two years ago. The house is very comfortable with some comforts from home like internet and Google TV on the small flat screen in the living room. This is a great addition to the house but its not obtrusive to the isolated feeling of a town of 50 people. We walked down the road for a great lunch at hog island oyster company followed up by a nice BBQ back at the house in the evening. Visiting the nearby wineries and a new meadery in pt reyes station were highlights. Beautiful scenery and I look forward to the next chance to get away to Marshall.

A wonderful quiet and peaceful time.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Marshall. To be directly by the water an partake of nature so closely was one of the most important features for us. The large window front had us marveling at birds, the tides, and sunsets or spectacular fog formations every day. We hope we can come back soon.

Fantastic Getaway!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
After unloading the car and a walk through the house and deck, a complete calm engulfed us. Helen's is a fabulous place to unwind and relax. The house itself is very comfortable, lived in and not pretentious with all the comforts one would need for a long weekend getaway or longer. We went for hikes in Pt. Reyes, fished from the dock got incredible sound sleep and were able to detach from our "normal" routine. Very restful and productive.
I can't wait to go back for a longer stay, just wish there was enough/more time to make that happen!

Delightful getaway

  • 5 of 5
Two friends and I went to Helen's Hideaway for a couple days of R & R. It was easy to get to and once there, we did not want to leave. The house itself is quaint and very comfortable. The views are spectacular and we were able to experience a couple of Seasons as it was raining when we arrived and the sun did not come out for a couple of days, very unusual for the end of June. Finally, the sun emerged on the third day and we were able to enjoy the lovely deck! What a spot!
We used the fireplace and enjoyed roaring fires while watching the rain outside. All was very relaxing and peaceful.
The beds were comfortable and we all slept like babies!
We felt as if we were on a cruise ship looking out on the bay. We watched two movies that we selected on Netflix and they were wonderful.
I brought my I Pad and I was able to pick up my emails so that was a bonus.

All in all we can't wait to go back. Tony's seafood restaurant was closed so we will have to return in order to make our little getaway even more complete, a delicious meal on the Bay.
Hope you can one day experience this Hideaway. I am sure you will not be disappointed!

Spectacular views but house needs some TLC

  • 2 of 5
Just took my kids to this house so I thought it would be good to write a review as there are some serious flaws to the property despite it's amazing location.

First, to get there: I took HWY 1 North from the SF bay area. It was a pleasant and easy drive. Once there it was easy to find but the parking space was too short from my Volvo SUV so I parked at an angle so I wouldn't stick out in traffic.

The closest market is at Pt. Reyes Station several miles south so better to shop for food before getting there as it's a bit of a drive to go back.

The views of Tomales Bay are amazing. The large deck and attached dock are in solid shape and the picnic table is perfect for eating outside. I initially thought I'd bring a large kayak to launch from the dock but I'm glad I didn't. There wouldn't have been a good way to get it to the dock. Also, even if I were able to muscle it it would have been a tough time getting it down as there is no lift. There is a kayak rental place down the road that has a launch ramp so I'd use that option.

The house is quaint but very beat-up. There is a cute small front yard that leads to the front door. Once in the front door you can see the house is poorly maintained and very dated. Old cupboards with worn wood, poor lighting, there was a sharp knife but the cutlery, plates and cups look like someone invaded the local goodwill. There were only three very shallow bowls so we served soup and cereal in coffee mugs. Some lamps had no bulbs and one bedroom's light switch buzzed and sparked so we avoided using it.

Linens and towels were clean and comfortable.

Furniture is a good mix of grandma's uncomfortable blue sofa and some super-70's thick cushion-plaid sofa/recliner. They were comfortable but it was hard to relax on the blue sofa for more than a few minutes. Again, it seemed like someone invaded Goodwill about fifteen years ago.

There is an internet connection but it's not WI-FI so you'll need an ethernet cable to get access. They do have a nice television with access to Netflix. I try to limit the kids but it was nice to have in the end.

I thought the fireplace worked well. It wasn't cold out so I can't comment on efficiency but I didn't have the smoke issue that other reviewers had. My only issue was that the wood was wet so it was hard to get going; but once lit it was nice.

It's a poorly cared for house in a great location. Price point is appropriate. With some TLC it could be much nicer!

Stunning location, poorly maintained house

  • 3 of 5
We spent Thanksgiving here. The view and location are superb. The house is no frills and many things need to be updated and/or repaired if they plan to keep renting this place for money. There was a note to the property manager on the counter when we arrived asking her to replace light bulbs and fire alarms-these were not done upon our arrival and the living room was very dark due to burned out light bullbs. The fireplace belches smoke if there is any wind at all, and we felt it was unsafe to use it due to all the smoke. The upstairs bedroom door does not close-highly inconvenient. The bathroom doors are louvered and provide no privacy at all, particularly unpleasant as the downstairs bathroom is right behind the dining area. Furniture is old and not very comfortable. The tv/dvd is ancient and that is fine since there are games/reading to do but at least provide some comfortable sofas to lounge on while we read! With a small amount of money and a more attentive property manager this property would be out of this world. There is a double bed downstairs and 2 sets of twin beds upstairs-great if you have 4 kids but not very nice for a couple to sleep in twin beds. We would love to come back here but would not be able to unless they fixed it up a little. The cabinets in the kitchen are very difficult to open.The deck is fantastic but there is no comfortable furniture to lounge on. A kayak would be a really nice touch. My impression is this is an amazing home that needs some attention and investment, until the family does that they will continue to receive so-so reviews.

This is a perfect base for a weekend of wandering around West Marin or driving to the wine country. Our house is about 45 minutes from Point Reyes seashore (lighthouse, whale watching, hiking, etc) and about a little over an hour to the Russian River (and easy day trip).
