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.

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.

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.

The house and pool are terrific, always clean and lovely. The women who run the place are easy to work with and extremely responsive. I will definitely rent again! Thanks for a great weekend.

50th wedding anniversary family weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented Waldo's Ranch for our 50th anniversary celebration over Labor Day weekend. We felt it would be the perfect fit for our family of 6 adults and 3 active grandsons, and it was!! When we arrived early on Friday afternoon ,my husband and I found that the dining room was decorated with all kinds of wonderful Happy 50th decorations (including a small bride and groom cake topper), wall hangings, and two bottles of wine (with bride and groom coverings!) in the refrigerator !! To say that we were surprised and delighted would be an understatement! What an awesome welcome!

Although the temps were soaring, it was such fun to all be in the pool ,where we spent the better part of each day. Our boys perfected their cannon ball jumps and the adults just enjoyed being wet and cool. The enclosed patio area was perfect for late night pizza and ping pong games. The house is large enough that you never feel crowded with room for many activities going on at one time. That's hard to find!

The owner Jeanette, and property manager Dana(decorator extraordinaire) were so delightful to work with. They would respond quickly when I called with a question and were so very accommodating. We felt so welcomed in the house.Thank you both for helping to make our celebration such a memorable one !!

We would recommend renting Waldo's Ranch to anyone . It is a close drive to so many places or perfect for just staying put, as we did. We enjoyed walking into town each morning for a pastry treat from the Bovine Bakery--we ordered our anniversary cake from them and it was delicious. We went to 2 of the restaurants in town , and the grocery store has everything you might need . We took a short drive into the town of Olema and enjoyed Hog Island oysters and local smoked trout one day for lunch!

Waldo's Ranch is truly a special place ,I gave it 5 stars but really it was a 10 for us!

WOW! A magical place.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this amazing property for our annual week-long reunion with our 3 adult kids in mid-August, and it couldn't have been better.

The spacious house has an endless, gorgeous view of the surrounding hills and wetlands, with hiking trails and park land just outside the door. It's a quick 3-5 minute walk into the town of Pt. Reyes Station, with stand out restaurants and shops, a first class book store and bakery, and a short drive to endless destinations and outdoor activities. Not to mention, just over an hour from all that San Francisco has to offer! Perfect for our family.

The house itself is unique, with plenty of space for solitude and/or group fun. It comes complete with a huge indoor pool area and separate ping pong/game room. Fantastic for Dad and grown sons, who are super ping-pong competitors. The house is fully equipped (and then some) with everything you need for a comfortable week's stay.

Let me repeat, we LOVE this location and will return. The only reason I gave it 4 stars rather than 5 is the slightly dated interior of the house, and an odd bedroom/bath configuration (the bedroom at the front end of the house has its own bath that isn't easy to access from the others, so 3 bedrooms, including master, tend to share the remaining bath). But don't let that stop you from enjoying this truly magical property and location. It's well worth it.

Perfect home for our family of 6 adults, 3 teenagers and a baby! Beautiful views!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Pt. Reyes Station! The home is in a beautiful spot and only a short walk to the quaintest little town. The home is very spacious and the pool/ping pong area was great for our teenagers. There is lots to do in and around the area...lots of great hiking trails!
