Gather with your companions around the adjacent dining table, where you can enjoy your culinary masterpiece while admiring the picturesque views outside the large surrounding windows. If you're craving that smoky barbeque flavor, step outside to the deck and whip up some tasty steaks or brats on the charcoal grill.

Everyone in your group will love spending time outside on either of the home's outdoor areas - there's only one step up to the front deck and another step up to the porch, offering ultimate easy accessibility.

There is kayaking available, and if you plan to bring your own gear along with you, feel free to sail, kiteboard, or partake in any other water sport - just keep in mind that the water is pretty cold!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We loved the place! Perfect for our group. It is amazingly well equipped

for a rental. Wished we had known about the new grill but next time we'll

plan on it. We tried really hard to think of how the place could be

improved/what was missing. Only came up with a couple things - Kleenex

and window washing - pretty good for 5 critics! You have done a great

job. We loved the decks and the view & spent alot of time just sitting

around chatting. Weather was iffy but OK. Parking was a bit challenging

but we survived. No other issues. We certainly would rent it again if we

were coming to the area. Thanks so much for your cooperation. It was

really pleasant to be able to check in/out early. We stayed every minute

totally relaxing

  • 4 of 5

The house is in a great location and has a wonderful view, about 100 feet above Tomales Bay. The large deck provides a expansive view and gives the feeling of being in a tree house, what with the elevation and large Oak branches all about. There is a gas grill on the deck (unfortunately left dirty and required cleaning) for outdoor oyster (yum) BBQ'ing. Inside is a well stocked kitchen and pantry, comfortable bedrooms and a large, modern bathroom. The living room is large and very cozy with lots of windows and light all around and with a bit of a rustic feel to it. Since there is only 1 full bath, it can get a bit busy, so just make sure everyone is on good terms. It would be really nice if there was a hot tub, but...

My only real complaints are the messy gas grill and the early posted check out time (10:00AM). Check with the manager to see if you can get a late checkout. If there is no one renting the next day, that's a possibility.

Would have given 4 1/2 stars if could. Will definitely stay here again.

Serene and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

See the big tree in the outdoor pictures? Something about that tree makes the view out to Tomales Bay very special. My daughter and I spent a weekend here, and we hardly wanted to leave.

Everything in the house from the bed linens to the flatware is top quality. The furniture is very comfortable. Although you are in a neighborhood, it is very quiet, and feels private.

This house feels like the labor of love it clearly was.

Great place to stay with some caveats

  • 3 of 5

Beautiful views and location! The kitchen was well stocked. The house was very clean but smelled quite musty and could use some updating. Beds were less comfortable than average and the room downstairs was very cold. We loved the views and the cozy living room, but for the price a few changes could be made.

Great spot, good infrastructure. Downstairs bed is ... meh.

  • 5 of 5

Really nice spot and cozy place. Only comment is that the downstairs bed is not that comfortable - seemed too soft. It could be my own back, but both my wife and I felt that it wasn't as comfortable as the upstairs bed.

And as others note, only full bathroom with shower is upstairs. The bathroom downstairs is about the size of an airplane bathroom.

We had a buck deer visit us every evening, it climbed the steps adjacent to the house and prowled around. Actually damaged our car after jumping over the nearby fence...but that can add to the charm of the place.

Great house, phenomenal views, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

The house was just perfect for our family of 4 (plus dog). It is decorated in a charming and comfortable way, and has beautiful views from the decks. Tamales Bay is such a great location for outdoor activities, and we took full advantage. Fun trip!!
