Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Spend your vacation on a former dairy farm, three blocks from the historic and charming town center of Point Reyes Station - just minutes away from the magnificent Point Reyes National Seashore.

The fifty-year-old ranch house has been updated and beautifully furnished. The large country kitchen is perfect for people who like to cook together and contains everything necessary for utilizing the wonderful array of locally grown culinary products available in town. Two large living rooms provide space and privacy for two families to share the house. The four bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. One has a king size bed, one has two doubles, one has a queen and a day bed, and one has two twin beds. A large enclosed patio contains a complete kitchen with a built-in barbeque and a newly renovated swimming pool and half bath. A fully equipped laundry room is also provided.

The Point Reyes area offers excellent opportunities for hiking, horseback riding, kayaking, boating, wine tasting, dining and simply enjoying the breathtaking scenery. We are located 40 miles north of San Francisco and about 40 miles away from the Napa/Sonoma wine country. Call or e-mail for more information - ask for Jeanette or Dana

About Jeanette Giacomini or Dana Valconesi

My three brothers and I grew up in this ranch house which was built by our parents in 1950. The house was part of a working dairy until 2007. The ranch pasture lands have been purchased by the federal government and are being restored to wetlands as part of the Point Reyes National Seashore.

After the death of our parents we decided to convert the house to a vacation rental so that we could afford to maintain it and continue to have access to it for family members. Profits from the rental are used to fund scholarships for local high students.

Jeanette Giacomini or Dana Valconesi purchased this house in 1950

What makes this house unique

The house is within walking distance to the center of the village of Point Reyes Station and yet is secluded enough to provide the peace and quiet necessary for a relaxing getaway. The area offers spectacular scenery and many opportunities for outdoor activities.

Exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

Point Reyes Station was the absolute best destination for a girls reunion get-away. We were a group of 8 and the house was more than accommodating. We did local hiking and shopping and really enjoyed the old ranch house and vibe of the town. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful property and location.

Perfect! Loved it. Great house. Great transaction

  • 5 of 5

We were two families of four visiting for a long weekend. The place was absolutely perfect. Very spacious. Well-appointed kitchen with a large dining area in it. The pool was fantastic - indoors, which was perfect for the cool Point Reyes weather, but with lots of daylight. The town nearby is fun, with a few good inexpensive places to eat and a quite good slightly more upscale Italian restaurant. I've already recommended this to several friends. Working with Jeannette was a pleasure. She was super responsive and, among other things, got the pool heated last-minute after I'd forgotten to request it in advance. We're already thinking about a return trip.

Great home for get-together!

  • 5 of 5

We (myself/spouse/10yr old son) stayed here for 3 nights and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. There's a nice pool in the backyard - heated and fully covered. My son loved the pool - note that the deep end is 8-10ft. Lot of places to see in the surrounding in 1-2hrs of driving distance.

We had minor hiccup (heater was not working).. but Jeanette was very prompt in fixing and also nice enough to offer additional stay at no charge.

It's a big home and ideal suited for a get together party... the pool and grill area in in backyard is well maintained. And enough things of entertainment (2 TVs, broadband etc.) too.

Wonderful Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Waldo's Ranch House is the perfect getaway! Close enough to the Bay Area, but definitely the feel of the country. The house has all the amenities to make your stay perfectly enjoyable from the well-stocked kitchen, to cozy sheets and bedding, to luxurious pool towels, books, games and plenty of space to spread out! Highly recommended!

Loved it again!

  • 5 of 5

For the second time, our multi-generational family had a wonderful time. The house is great - lots of room to spread out in - and spaces to be together. The location is so special and pristine. So much fun to stay in the home of a family with so much history in the area. The owner is so responsive and lovely to work with. We all agreed…we will be back!
