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.

A delightful home in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We had such a terrific visit and all agreed we'd love to come back. Each room was well appointed and comfortable and the kitchen had every appliance, dish and utensil we needed. We walked to town each day and were close to amazing hikes in the Pt Reyes National Seashore.

We swam in the pool each afternoon and enjoyed the peaceful natural views surrounding the house. The weekend greatly exceeded our expectations!

Perfect place for a multi-family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our multi-family group, which included young children, had an absolute blast at Waldo's. We asked for the pool temperature to be bumped up so we'd be able to spend lots of time in the pool, and I'm glad we did. It was perfect, and super mellow. We found everything we needed for cooking large meals in the kitchen, and everyone had a lovely time. And with young kids, it's priceless to be able to just walk a few blocks to delicious dinner restaurants (rather than get everyone in and out of the car). We only just got back home and I've already recommended it to friends.

absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to gather our family and celebrate a milestone birthday. House is roomy and comfortable, incredibly well equipped, and the pool and pingpong area were so much fun. But the true delight is the beautiful setting, right next to a wetland in the midst of restoration -- lovely views, birds, even a bagpipe serenade this morning. So many thoughtful touches -- I can't say enough about the generosity of our hosts.

Exceptional!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I have stayed at Waldo Ranch numerous times. It is a perfect place for us to cook and eat together, hang out, walk into town, and admire the views and birdlife from the lovely outdoor spaces. Comfortable beds, enough bathrooms for a group, well equipped kitchen and easy communications with owner and manager make Waldo a wonderful experience each and every time. We look forward to future visits.

Amazing gathering-spot, property, and location with a host that went WAY above and beyond

  • 5 of 5

I primarily chose this house based on its size and proximity to Tomales Bay, which was a key draw for our small group gathering to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday.

We had NO idea how awesome the entire experience would be until we arrived and saw the place in-person. First, we were thrilled to realize how walkable the house is to the town itself, and we loved shopping at the local market, coffee shop, bakery, Cowgirl Creamery, and butcher -- really bringing the BEST of what the region has to offer within a 5 min walk!!

Then, upon entering the house we were shocked to see the dining room decorated with 40th birthday party supplies for the adults, and a few toys for the babies that were with us. It really set the tone for the weekend and showed great thought/care from the property manager who went out of her way to make us feel SO welcomed and special! Talk about going above and beyond!

From there, we went on to enjoy the spacious house, with a great BBQ, gorgeous landscape looking at the green rolling rolling hills, the indoor pool that was HUGE and provided a perfect lounging area even on a gray day, and a well-stocked kitchen that made it easy to pull together some great meals.

All in all, I can't say enough about the positive experience we had at this rental. I've stayed at a ton of rentals between VRBO and Airbnb and this was one of those stays that really stands out. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. We'll be back!
