A beautiful backdrop to celebrate a 3rd & 30 something birthday. Thank you thank you!
This house was perfect for our group of three adult couples and could easily have accommodated two more. I appreciated the previous reviews that mentioned the stairs and brought two smaller ice chests rather than one large one ... ditto with suitcases. We are all in our 60's and the stairs really were fine. Views from all rooms were wonderful! We hiked three different trails in the park, all within a 30 min. drive. Buses were also nearby & frequent. I especially appreciated the owner's flexibility with my changing plans and addition of reservation dates. We will return.
We could not have asked for better place to stay than The Drake for our week at Point Reyes. The house is beautiful, the views stunning, and Kim could not have been more accommodating. It was the perfect base for our vacation! Thank you Kim - we loved our week at The Drake.
my family stayed there for a wedding in the area. the house is beautiful, and in a great location. easy to find. there are many amenities. the two car garage is a great help when 8-10 people are staying. the deli and grocery down below are very convenient.
the views are spectacular.
however, we had a few issues, and were not able to get a response from the owner after multiple calls.
namely, we couldn't figure out how to get the heat going. there are thermostats in every room, but it didn't seem that setting the temp made any difference. there were no apparent vents in the house.
the clothes dryer start button was broken. so we couldn't dry laundry. the front doorknob kept falling off.
note to future guests, the home is set on a hill, which provides great vistas, but for those who may have a difficult time with climbing stairs, it is quite a steep walk from the parking area to the top. pack lightly, or in multiple lighter luggage items in order to transport luggage up into the house.
This house was beautiful and great for a large group. The kitchen was very modern and all the bedrooms were very nice. The bathroom in the master room was gorgeous. Great view from all the decks. There were a lot of stairs to get up to the house which made it a little difficult with a baby and carrying groceries but it wasn't bad. Only drawback was no hot tub but would highly recommend this house and would rent again.
The Drake is true to the pictures - a beautiful, clean, well laid-out home in a great location. Only about an hour drive from San Francisco, it was a great escape for a long weekend.
Within 10-15 minutes we were hiking, eating oysters at the Tomales Bay Oyster Farms or getting food from the farmer's market. Amazing!
Only suggestions for the place: maybe some drapes for the bedroom windows to allow people to sleep in a little ;) some more kitchen supplies (deeper bowls, salt/pepper, etc.) to go along with the fabulous kitchen, and some toiletries for the bathroom (shampoo/conditioner). Minor things though for such a wonderful place.
It looks like the owners are trying to sell which is too bad. I hope the new owners will continue to rent out The Drake. I would definitely recommend staying here and would stay there again.
The Drake was fabulous. The beds were very comfortable, there were plenty of linens available, the kitchen was well stocked, and there was plenty of space for all of us -- 6 adults and 4 kids! We really enjoyed our stay.
