CASUAL SUNNY PT. REYES COTTAGE: CLOSE TO TOWN: FAMILY FRIENDLY

Point Reyes Station House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Welcome to our home in Point Reyes, a five-acre rectangular piece of land on the Mesa above Pt. Reyes Station. The house is located in the sunniest part of town where summer fog from the Pacific/Inverness usually burns off by mid-morning (at least during the warmer months). A deck at the back of the house provides a great area for enjoying the sights, sounds and beauty of this special part of the world. It's also a great place to grill local foods on our easy-to-use gas grill. When you are winding down your day, enjoy the evening relaxing in the hot tub located in our side yard.

Our house is a cozy and casual place. It's great for families and kids and is nice to come home to after a long day out hiking, beaching, or exploring the beautiful Pt. Reyes area. The main area of the house has an open floor plan with kitchen, dining and living room. There is a wood-burning stove perfect for those chilly evenings. There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The first bedroom has a queen bed and ample closet space. The second bedroom has two twin beds. The third bedroom is a master suite with a queen bed, attached bath and ample closet space as well.

There is also a pull out couch in the living room which will sleep an additional 2 guests. Ideally the house sleeps six, but can accomodate 8. We also have a pack and play for infants and can provide a high chair if needed.

Nearby you will find the Point Reyes National Seashore with an amazing diversity of hikes, coastal ecosystems, and history. Choose to spend time in any one of several local towns each with their own personality and something great to offer.

Easily drive or walk to nearby Point Reyes Station (just under a mile) for breakfast treats at the Bovine Bakery, a trip to the local market (Palace Market), a yoga class (Yoga Toes), a visit to the Farmer's Market or a meal at Osteria Stellina, a local Italian restaurant recently named one of the SF Chronicle's Top 100 Bay Area Restaurants. There are a host of other delicious food and charming retail establishments. Other towns worth a visit include Inverness (Vladimir's), Nicascio (Rancho Nicascio), and Olema (Olema Inn).

About The Owner

The owners use and enjoy the house throughout the year and are hoping to share the joy of a Point Reyes getaway with friends and friends of friends so please pass the word.

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

Why The Owner chose Point Reyes Station

We have been going to Point Reyes on weekends since 1994 and think it is one of the most special and undiscovered (at least under-utilized) natural treasures in California, which places it right near the top of the most amazing places we have visited in the world (night time stars in the sky, beautiful forests, beach and coastal waters, berries, apples, birds, elk, coyotes, salmon (hopefully), cheese, hiking and biking on fire roads, a surprising amount of culture for a tiny little town, oysters, rancho nicascio, bovine bakery, western saloon, station house, cafe reyes, yoga, toby's, olema inn etc...).

What makes this house unique

our simple ranch style house is set on a rectangular parcel of land that is 5 acres in size and characterized by an open main field bounded on two sides by mesa road and two sides by neighbors separated by spruce and cypress trees, respectively. the perfect blend of openness with privacy, the Mesa area in Pt. Reyes is the sunny part of town so bring sun protection. nights are cool with incredible stars on clear nights. there are wild blackberry bushes on the property which fruit during the summer. the house is less than a mile walk from town - flat with one 2-3 minute uphill on the way home.

Lovely spot, comfortable well-equipped house

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay here, 4 adults and one baby and one small dog. With the large glass wall overlooking the deck and huge yard we watched deer graze and clouds move by. We came during a cold snap, but the sun warmed up the deck enough we could sit outside for a bit. The accomodations are clean and well-kept and luxurious if you consider being close to nature but comfortable inside a luxury. We had all we needed and more.
The description is accurate and the photos represent the property very well. We would highly recommend staying here and would love to come back.

Wonderful cottage with great amenities

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I and our two small children stayed here for 2 nights, and thought it was just perfect. We walked in to a light-filled main room where the kids immediately gravitated towards a toy-filled chest that kept them happy the whole time. There's an open floor plan so you can cook or grill on the deck while the kids play in the living space, or outside in the meadow (with wild raspberries growing outside!). We would sit on the dining table watching deer and wild turkeys grazing outside. After the kids went to bed my husband and I enjoyed the hot tub outside our master bedroom and the tons of stars overhead, or were able to watch a video in the main room or bedroom from the large selection of movies. It feels so private and secluded, yet its very close to town. Also, there was a high chair and pack and play provided for our toddler.

I have to disagree with the previous poster that the cabin was "shabby." While it is not brand-new, it was clean and well-furnished, with all the amenities you could possibly want--more than I've seen in just about any other vacation rental we've used. We were really happy here. We will certainly use this cottage again the next time we come back (when the park is not subject to a government shutdown!).

2013 Review

  • 3 of 5
We had a wonderful week here and were able to accommodate many friends and relatives (we now live on the east coast.) At the same time, we were surprised by how expensive the rentals are and the value in return. This is OK as a basic house, but also rather shabby. For the price, we didn't expect broken building materials and an ugly shed in the front yard, worn linens in the guest rooms (flannel sheets on a twin bed in August, with none to switch out.) A stove that was hard to light and SLOW to cook. Food in cupboards of unknown age. We live in an area of the Hudson Valley, NY where many people vacation, and this house could not rent for a fraction of the price we paid. That said, the area does command high prices and this was certainly in line with, and less expensive than others. Point Reyes, and staying in PR Station, will always be our favorite destination. But next time we'll have to get a 1-bedroom and ask guests to get their own accommodations.

Great House in Great Location

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed in this home numerous times and can honestly say it is one of the best vacation rentals I have visited. The location is fantastic because it is an easy drive from the Bay Area, yet feels like you are so far from the hustle bustle of the city. The house is located on a huge meadow that is all a part of the yard so you feel like you are secluded and have lots of privacy. The deck opens right out onto the meadow so if you have kids or a dog it is heaven! It is far from the road so it is quiet and we always see quite a few deer roaming around in the meadow. It's an easy walk into the darling town and short drives to beautiful ocean beaches or Kayaking on Tomales Bay. Lots of fresh Oysters and good organic food abound, or you can utilize the great kitchen or BBQ on the deck. All in all the house has all the amenities I look for in a rental getaway, it's clean, comfortable and quiet. I highly recommend it.

Comfortable Company

  • 4 of 5
A relaxing setting was the perfect way to describe the house. Lucky for us, the weather was AMAZING so we took advantage of the patio, BBQ, and let the dogs run the property. It's great for dogs -- lots of room for them to explore and it's far away from the street. The kitchen and living room is nice and open which is great for cooking/serving/sharing food and drinks. The living room furniture was pretty basic, but we spent most of our time outside anyway. The only two things we would negatively comment on: (1) the master bedroom bath window in the shower is not obscured so the neighbors could see you showering and (2) the garbage cans are way too small to accommodate a party of 8 for 3 days. It's recommended to either limit your trash or be very diligent with sorting compost and recycling. But, all in all, our friends and family enjoyed themselves which is all that matters. Thanks for the experience!!

Great family rental

  • 5 of 5
Perfect place for grandparents from the Midwest to meet and spend relaxed quality time with son, daughter-in-law, and 4-year-old grandson from Oregon. The property was as pictured in the photos - comfortable, cozy, quiet, clean and well-equipped. Toy box was a great plus. The rental agent was quite helpful and friendly. Comfortable beds, hot showers, sunshine, hikes, beaches, bakery, animals in the back yard...what's not to like?! Hope to make this a yearly tradition.
