Point Reyes Station House Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom with large deck overlooking National Park.

This is the home for the couple that wants to feel like they are a million miles away in total privacy yet close to everything.

Please know that this home can be rented with the 6 bedroom/6 bath 'Blackthorne' (Home Away 338956. VRBO 323070) for a total of 7 bedroom 7 baths.

The cabin enjoys absolute privacy as it is located at the very end of a not-a-through street on 2 private acres that feel like 1000 acres as you are surrounded by National Park. The home is located in the easy-to-get-to flat area of Point Reyes (not way back up some long, winding road) yet elevated in the treetops, making it very sunny and bright with panoramic views of the National Park. Though you feel like you are a million miles away, you are conveniently only 1 mile from downtown Point Reyes with it’s fine dining and shops, 2 miles from the village of Inverness, 12 minutes from world class ocean beaches and one-hour from San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge and the Napa/Sonoma wine country.

The cabin is in as-new condition with a well-thought out design and furnishings by Robin Barnato of San Anselmo’s Studio Home Designs.

The home has a large, wrap around deck with panoramic, treetop views, a gas fireplace, flat screen TV that tilts toward the living room or bedroom, high speed wifi, phone with unlimited calling in the US and Canada, gas Bar BQ and an ipod player. Guests are also provided with tennis racquets and tennis balls and the key to a private tennis court 2 miles away.

If having a true getaway-from-it-all experience that is not far away is what you are looking for, please contact me as I’d be delighted to have you.

About Robert Galliani

My name is Robert Galliani. I am a 3rd generation San Franciscan. My wife of 26 years and I have three children ages 18, 21 and 23. We happily and very fortunately live in a beautiful place called Marin County California where our lives are intertwined and revolve around our children.

Robert Galliani purchased this house in 2013

Why Robert Galliani chose The Bay Area

Absolute privacy is so hard to find. We're delighted to own this very charming and warm cabin located in such a spectacular setting yet 1-hour from San Francisco.

What makes this house unique

The home makes you feel like you are a million miles away yet it's close in. Being elevated in the treetops makes the home sunny and warm. I have never liked dark places. This is the opposite as it is bright and sunny with amazing views.

Cute cottage

  • 4 of 5

The cottage has an awesome deck. It is at the end of the road so no neighbors on one side. It was very clean upon arrival. The bed was average on comfort level. The shower is large, but the water pressure and flow of hot water is very sensitive. There is no central heat or air or ceiling fans. The house is warmed by a gas fireplace when needed. The location is excellent for venturing into the town of Point Reyes Station, hiking, and the beaches. The JVC TV was superb and the internet was fast enough for vacationing. There is no Verizon cell phone coverage here. Enjoyed the stay.

Goldilocks zone - just right!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect cabin for a couple or even two friends traveling together. Beautifully furnished with everything one would need. The setting feels secluded - it is very quiet, with redwoods surrounding the deck - and yet it is right up the road from a market and restaurants in Inverness Park, as well as a short ride to Point Reyes Station. If I lived in San Francisco or nearby, I would use it as a frequent getaway. Great communication with the owner, the cabin is as lovely as the pictures but it feels even better once you are in the actual environment. Especially the deck and the woods. We have already told our friend in Santa Rosa and we will be back ourselves, specifically to stay in that cabin again. The Pt. Reyes area has so many beautiful places to walk/hike. The visitor center should be a starting point (and it's close to the cabin), and the area is quintessential California vistas of hills, trees and water, especially looking across Tomales Bay on the ride to the Lighthouse Road. Fabulous.

Perfect Get-Away Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved our stay, it was hard to leave. It is so great to be able to find such a treasure close to home. The cabin is so delightful - the decorations and furnishings, the expansive deck, the setting! The property feels so secluded as though you are right in the forest, so private. We had everything we needed in the kitchen, and found a wonderful bakery in Point Reyes Station. We spent a couple days hiking, and it was great to return to this cozy cabin at the end of each hike! Robert made all communication so easy, and quickly mailed a forgotten item back to me. Thank you!

Jewel box in the forest

  • 5 of 5

We loved every moment of our too-short stay in Point Reyes. Robert has created a beautiful retreat that is exquisitely decorated and complete with a small but perfectly outfitted kitchen and carefully curated furnishings. The house is located above the street (with some manageable steps involved) and is very private but close to a wonderful small grocery store. We called it the "jewel box" and spent hours watching the sun rise and fall in the magnificent forest - just moments from the ocean!

I loved this little cabin in the trees!

  • 5 of 5

This is a cozy little cabin with a big deck, that really feels like a treehouse. It is very nicely furnished and the kitchen is very functional. We enjoyed our stay, and hated to leave. I recommend this property.

Relaxing and cozy cabin, convenient location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took a couple nights away to celebrate our anniversary. I could tell a lot of thought went into this little cabin and both the inside and outside are very well kept up and maintained. We appreciate the simplicity and think this is a perfect place for a weekend getaway. We were also able to use the tennis rackets a couple times during our stay--an appreciated addition.
