About the property

2-bedroom/2-bath beautifully decorated cottage with wonderful views

When you rent Brynant Cottage for your next vacation, you’re guaranteed an adventure exploring the area and an oasis to return to at the end of the day.

The 1500-square foot cottage is whimsically decorated with colorful local artwork reflecting the spirit of San Francisco and the Bay. The house has been furnished with lovingly selected custom-made furniture from Central America, adding an exotic twist to the traditional seaside cottage architecture.

Families will enjoy the spacious living areas—a master bedroom and a second bedroom with two double beds and a seating area that features fold-out sofas—enough space to accommodate 6 people with ease. Bryant Cottage will feel like your home-away-from-home with its spacious modern kitchen and dining area—or relax and take advantage of the renowned restaurants nearby.

With sweeping views of Tomales Bay and a lush garden, Brynant Cottage is an oasis of natural beauty. Two decks leading off the bedrooms and a back patio allow for pleasant evenings spent soaking in the hot tub and enjoying the breeze off the bay. If you’re visiting in the winter, the spacious living room with its dramatic view of the water is the perfect place to cozy up next to the wood stove and take advantage of our state-of-the-art entertainment system.

The central living area is the heart of the cottage. The elegant, open great room includes the kitchen, dining area and living room with beautiful hardwood floors and sweeping views of the Bay.

The kitchen is fully outfitted with new stainless steel appliances, perfect for creating a delicious meal out of Marin’s plentiful fresh local produce. The exotic dark wood dining table seats eight.

Flowing out of the dining area, the airy, welcoming living room is sure to be everyone’s favorite spot. The

cozy wraparound couch is perfectly situated in front of our entertainment system with large flat-screen TV, DVD player and satellite channels. For quieter moments, a window-side bench features views of the bay and is a toasty spot near the wood stove.

The front deck is only steps away, where you can enjoy the view while soaking in the hot tub or venture down the sweeping lawn towards the bay.

The Master Bedroom, decorated to reflect the cool beauty of the water, is a relaxing retreat in shades of pale blue and cream. The cozy queen bed is cloaked in crisp white linens and faces the plush leather armchair to sink into after a long day. You can watch the spectacular sunset from the private deck with a glass of local wine.

The spacious second bedroom is a kid’s paradise. Bright splashes of color decorate the room from batik-patterned throw pillows to the whimsical artwork flying above the heads of their beds. Two double beds face the rec room of their dreams— two comfy sofas form the perfect play space, and sliding glass doors entice them out to play in the garden. For rainy days, there’s a big TV to keep them entertained. If you’ve got a larger group—no problem. The two large sofas fold out into single beds, and in a room this big, no one ever feels cramped!

The cottage features two full bathrooms. The master bathroom has granite countertops and a luxurious tub for soaking. The second bathroom, tiled in travetine stone, has a shower and is located inside the second bedroom.

After a day kayaking on the bay, hiking along the spectacular coastal trails, or bargaining at the farmer’s

market, Brynant Cottage is the place you’ll want to come home to. Equipped with every luxury you

can expect at home and the gorgeous surrounds of bucolic Marin, ensure a relaxing vacation— and

escape to the serenity of Brynant Cottage.

My family and I spent 3 nights in the Brynant Cottage and LOVED it! The house is very special. It's comfortable, sophisticated, down-to-earth and high end all at once. The location is very private yet close enough to amenities. We enjoyed BBQing fresh oysters that we picked up at the Hog Island Oyster Company just down the road, sipping wine on the deck and taking a soak in the hot tub. The rooms and beds were very comfortable and the kitchen had everything you might need. Our dealings with the manager Sandy were great! She was able to answer any and all questions we had and the renting went smoothly.

We would love to return!

Quite Contemporary

  • 4 of 5

We were very pleased with Brynant Cottage. It was much larger than anticipated. It was outfitted with a modern kitchen that was well equipped with quality cooking items. The bathrooms were also quite contemporary. It has a recent remodel feel. This house could easily accommodate two families as there is a separate section that could be closed off from the shared living and kitchen areas. This rental is rated five stars. However, since I did have some difficulty dealing with the property manager, I gave it four stars.

Lovely and Luxurious

Just back from a long weekend at Brynant Cottage. We were absolutely delighted by the fresh modernity, the beautiful view and the peace of the place. Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it and plan to return soon. I highly recommend this rental.

Can't say enough...

  • 5 of 5

The views this house offers are amazing, and the location is perfect. One of the best things is how private it feels. The house comes with everything you need; from a very well stocked kitchen with gas range, to WiFi, to satellite TV, to comfortable, modern furnishings, and a propane BBQ. And did I forget the hot tub to soak in? All while soaking in the views of beautiful Tomales Bay! This was our second stay, and certainly won't be our last.

Best Location and Cottage on Tomales Bay!

  • 5 of 5

We are Pt. Reyes area regulars and VRBO regulars. We honeymooned in the area 13 years ago and go back every year. Brynant Cottage was phenomenal and truly exceeded our expectations. It is perched above PCH 1 in the woods. The views from the living area windows, deck, and yard are enough by themselves, but in addition to the incredible views, you have a gormet kitchen, handcrafted wooden OOAK furniture pieces, tasteful art throughout the home, spotless baths, comfortable beds, a decadent outdoor spa, comfortable deck seating and a BBQ, phone, internet, cable, a full well-located laundry room, several TV viewing areas, and even regular visits from woodland does and fawns. The property manager was WONDERFUL to deal with and very helpful with questions. We would definitely recommend this property if you are considering a stay in the Pt.Reyes/Marshall/Tomales Bay area....and if you aren't considering a stay there...go for a medical checkup, 'cause something is wrong!

Beautiful cottage with a view

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The house is nicely decorated with all the comforts. The deers sauntered through the yard everyday. At the end of the day we loved to soak in the spa looking out to the bay. This is a great location. The hiking, kayaking, BBQ oysters, Guerneville, Healdsburg are not far away. What a great time!
