Marshall Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Envelop yourself with natural beauty and ever-changing light and water.

Our beach cottage is perfect whether you desire a romantic getaway, a fun family vacation, or respite from your busy life.

Bleu Bay Beach Cottage has its own private sandy beach on Bleu Bay Cove, a private getaway gem on the shores of pristine Tomales Bay.

Through many windows in every room of our house, or from our deck and hot tub or our beach, witness incredible sunsets, water views, sea & shore life.

Fall asleep to the sound of gentle waves lapping on our beach. Luxuriate in the 6-person hot tub. Snuggle up next to a cozy fire in the brick surrounded fireplace. Stay in touch through powerful wireless internet, relax with music, watch tapes on TV or bring your favorite DVDs. Cherish a romantic evening, or read an adventure to your children. Create a life-long memory here.

Awake in the comfy queen bed in our private upstairs bedroom to a spectacular view of the bay. The cottage sleeps 4 more in double-sized fold-out couches in the living and sun-rooms. There is one bathroom with a shower/tub combo and spacious counter-top with double sinks. Prepare meals in our fully-equipped kitchen stocked with numerous appliances, pots, pans, gas stove & dinnerware.

You’ll love the restaurants, bars, shops, galleries, grocery stores and bakeries in nearby historic Point Reyes Station, Olema, and Inverness.

Popular Nick’s Cove Restaurant is just a mile north. Visit famous Hog Island Oyster Company for local oysters, 2.2 miles south. Local favorite Tony’s Seafood is 3 miles south. 10 minutes north is the town of Tomales with a great deli restaurant and the best bakery in the universe. Dillon Beach and Bodega Bay are a short drive beyond that.

Enjoy enzyme baths and massage at Osmosis (25 minutes). Tour wineries nearby and in Napa or Sonoma Valleys (1 hour). Raft the Russian River (40 minutes). Explore many world-class beaches and coast attractions. Feast and tour locally, in San Francisco or Berkeley, only a little over one hour away and innumerable Bay Area delights.

Launch a kayak or canoe from our sandy beach on the on the cove. Rent kayaks just down the road in Marshall. Otters, seals and sea lions swim, frolic and tend to their daily business. Bleu Bay Cove is permanent home to Great Blue Heron, Snowy White Egret and flocks of other waterfowl and shorebird species. Use our high powered scope or binoculars to magnify your view.

Across the bay a short drive away is famous Point Reyes National Seashore with its award-winning visitor center, great hiking & biking trails where you might see roaming herds of albino deer and Thule elk, an ancient forest, and a real earthquake fault. Bald eagles nest here. Stroll on miles of white sandy beaches where you can observe marine mammals, dolphins, and breaching whales. Explore the tide pools teeming with sea life.

We’re just over an hour from the Golden Gate Bridge, but a world away. A unique vacation spot you’ll long remember. Reward yourself.

Some dogs allowed with prior permission.

Manager’s note:

I’m pleased to help make your stay at owner Tom Flynn’s beach cottage as perfect as possible.

It’s a privilege to work with a man of Tom’s caliber who is well-known as a visionary environmental manager, advisor, consultant, environmental engineer, and preservationist in California’s professional environmental culture, as well as at the CA Coastal Commission and NOAA (National Oceanic and Aeronautic Administration).

Tom’s many years of work to eliminate potential for pollution in Tomales Bay has won accolades throughout Marin and Sonoma Counties. Tom has substantially assured the adjective “pristine,” as in “pristine Tomales Bay”. Tom’s leadership to preserve several hundred acres of environmentally sensitive and scenic areas near the edge of Tomales Bay and nearby King Mountain is impressive and inspirational. He is known for results, which provide community, economic, and environmental benefits. This caring and attention to detail is reflected in his beach cottage.

Serene Escape

  • 4 of 5
The house was just as pictured. Beautiful views, quiet, and a great spot to unwind. Great for one or two people, but not really more than that. My Friend took the bed upstairs and said it was comfy. I tried the pullout but it wasn't comfortable enough for me, so just slept on the couch which was totally fine. Close to really great beaches and points of interest. I would do some grocery shopping before coming out if you plan to make even small meals at the house. While there are some stores close by, they were very limited and pricey. Nick's Cove was one of the best dining experiences I've had in a while, so do check it out. I would rent again for another staycation.

Enchanted

This is a really lovely house, very comfortable, and right there on the water in the Tomales Bay. Really peaceful, close to beautiful hikes, nature, and lots of great food places. We will most definitively be back.

Great Retreat

  • 4 of 5
A friend and I booked Bleu Bay Cottage for a personal retreat this past weekend. It was really delightful. The views were gorgeous and the furnishings comfy. It was very clean and well maintained. For the two of us it was perfect.

If there had been four or more of us we might have been disappointed. It can probably sleep 3 adults comfortably but any more and I think we might have felt on top of each other and I'm not sure the sleeping arrangements would be that comfortable.

The kitchen was charming and clean with lots of counter space and a beautiful vintage stove with working stove top. It was adequately stocked with utensils for most folks, but some basics I take for granted at home such as a large flat bottomed skillet and mixing bowls weren't to be found. However, there was plenty of pots, pans, etc to make do. We kept our meals simple with lots of fresh local produce, meats and dairy.

I would definitely recommend this cottage for anyone looking to get away with a friend or two, and plan to return when I need some quiet time on the bay with only the sounds of birds and of water lapping below the deck.

Owner's Response: We’re really glad James and his friend’s stay was delightful. We’ve worked hard to make the beach cottage a nice experience for guests and it’s always great to hear these appreciative reviews. We also really appreciate feedback, like letting us know that a couple of things, including the large fry pan are missing and need to be replaced. As James noted, the beach cottage is really special for a couple or a few friends. But many larger size (up to six) family or younger groups have been really happy to have all that the beach cottage offers at such an affordable rate for their group. Some of this family and group appreciation is also expressed in our reviews below.

Peaceful and wonderful

  • 4 of 5
We really enjoyed this peaceful hideaway. We played games watched the birds, cooked dinner, walked to nearby nick's Cove and along the strauss creamery farm. There was a slight mixup with the cleaner when we got there, but they quickly took care of getting someone there to clean the cabin. Overall it was a great experience.

The Perfect Bay-side Cottage

  • 5 of 5
Bleu Bay Cottage was just as described and perfect for us. The changing tides, light on the water, fog to sun and back again with passing birds and sea life were an unending show.
The cottage was clean, very well equipped and comfortable.
We will be back.

Perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5
The photos and description of this cottage were exactly as we found the place! It was immaculate with everything you'd need for a relaxing, worry-free vacation. Tom sent us information about nearby hikes and restaurants, which we found helpful. We would definitely recommend this cottage to our friends! The cooler mornings and nights made the fireplace and hot tub amazing! And try the s'mores at Nick's Cove!

There is great beach walking and hiking all over the surrounding area including the remarkable Pt. Reyes National Seashore, but a very local tip: hiking is just a few hundred feet away up a very quiet country road (virtually no cars) through the Straus Creamery pasture lands (the first organic dairy west of the Mississippi). You can walk all the way to the top of the local beautiful hills. At the top of this road you can enjoy expansive views of Tomales Bay and Point Reyes Peninsula.

Also about 4 miles South, the Marconi Conference Center (a California Parks Foundation Facility), is a nice place to hike around and take in historical information and beautiful views. Marconi, as you may know, did the first trans-Pacific radio transmissions from this location.
