About Anna Edmondson

Peter (energy engineer) had spent many childhood vacations in Inverness. Anna (editor) discovered it as a college student at UC Berkeley in the 80's. The wild, romantic beauty of Pt. Reyes' moors and beaches captured our imaginations even before we met. One thing led to another and we were finally able to realize our dream of having a place of our own. Inverness is not for the faint of heart - it's unpredictable - at times foggy, cold and moody, other times sunny and exuberant. Here we find peace and inspiration. Even our teen boys look forward to unplugging and chilling out. We currently live in Oakland, California.

Anna Edmondson purchased this house in 2011

What makes this house unique

Multiple bay-windows with views from the living room/kitchen of Tomales Bay through the trunks of Live Oaks on the bluff. Place offers a combined feeling of beach house and tree-house.

Great for Our Family

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four loved staying in this beautiful house for three nights over Martin Luther King weekend. The minute we walked in, we could see that it was one of the better-furnished, better-loved VRBO rentals we've enjoyed over the years. Tranquil views of Tomales Bay, well-equipped kitchen, BBQ grill that worked (!), and fun board games and music. Thank you, Anne!

Sweet getaway

  • 5 of 5

The location was excellent - a short hike down to the beach at the end of the neighborhood, and just outside the National Seashore, short drive from a restaurant and small market. Home is nicely appointed with a well stocked kitchen and all you need to cook. The owner was very responsive, especially when we encountered a problem with the dishwasher which was quickly resolved. We would stay there again happily. We enjoyed the record collection, too!

Perfect!

We stayed here for a few days after Christmas...2 adults and 3 20-somethings. House was great...enjoyed being close to Shell Beach and the road to Pierce Point, etc. Clean, well stocked. Anna is very communicative.

Fantastic House

  • 5 of 5

Great view, beautiful house with an outdoor jacuzzi. We came for a wedding and wished we could have stayed for a month. Also the record selection at the house is superb.

Highly recommended.

A wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable and furnished with excellent taste, right on the bluff above the bay in one of the nicest parts of Inverness. The house is impressively well-organized and everything is up to date. You can take a couple of great walks right out the door (up the hill or to the beach) and we liked that there were two mountain bikes available for rides. Anna is really friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Map

Car: necessary

This lovely rental in the Seahaven district of Inverness is a 7-minute walk to the romantic, wild, yet sheltered Shell Beach, perfect for an afternoon picnic or early morning walk. Hop in your car and you are minutes away from all the beaches and sights of Pt. Reyes National Sea Shore. Kayaking, paddle-board, and sailboat rentals on Tomales Bay are 3 minutes away. An oyster fan? Head to Marshall and buy delicious oysters to eat there or bring home. For meat lovers, excellent choices at Marin Sun Farms in Pt. Reyes Station. Our favorite short hike is the Firetrail from Old Inverness - like walking through a Chinese watercolor of windswept pines and craggy stone walls up to Mt. Vision Road and views of the Pacific Ocean.
