Point Reyes Station house description

This house is a perfect romantic get away. Spacious and beautiful in the middle of nature it is located between Pt. Reyes Station and Inverness in West Marin and yet is within easy reach of everything the San Francisco Bay Area has to offer. Walk the nearby beaches and trails and maybe find where Sir Francis Drake hid some of his treasure.

The house will comfortably sleep 10 and has balconies and decks with woodland views throughout. There is hydronic heating and on cold mornings the tile floors in the bathroom and kitchen are warm and cozy. The house can sleep up to 16 people. All rooms have hardwood floors.
We are NOT a party venue. If you wish to drink and play loud music into the night we are Not the place for you. We must be respectful of our neighbors. Thank you.
If there are more guests than is stated in the rental agreement you will be charged at the rate of $50/person/night.
If the place is left not as clean as it was on arrival you will be charged for the additional cleaning expense. These charges will be taken out of the damage deposit or charged to your credit card. We have so far not had to make any of these kinds of charges.
Sleeping arrangements:There are 4 bedrooms. The dining room can also be used as a bedroom. There are 3 pullout couches in addition to the beds in some of the bedrooms. There are also 2 more pullout couches in open areas. One is in the large entry room and the other is in the living room. If you are a family group or close friends privacy is not so much of a concern.

If you are considering an event such as a family get together, a celebration, or a seminar we can accommodate you. We can help arrange things on this end as much as possible.We charge a fee for each person attending and if they choose to stay the night the fee will be as stated.

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need if you decide to cook. On the other hand, there are a number of excellent restaurants nearby, so if you want to escape from cooking, there are plenty of choices.
If you have children please inquire before booking. We charge the full rate for children over 5 years old, $50/night.

The master bedroom has a queen bed and a somewhat separate area with a pullout couch and desk. There is a dining room and a living room with french doors that open to a large deck and a balcony . There are two pullout couches in the living room. The dining room has a pullout couch.The kitchen has a breakfast area which seats up to 6. There are several barbecues on the deck. One is gas and the other is charcoal.
There is radiant heating throughout which is especially nice in the bathrooms and kitchen. On chill winter mornings the feel of a warm floor is nice.

Ruby Throated Hummingbirds can be seen in the backyard and from the kitchen window as they dart about the Chinese Lantern flowers.

Two osprey nests also can be seen from the kitchen and the master bedroom. It is a treat to hear their cries as they circle on the thermals gaining altitude to then glide off to catch a meal. When they return sometimes they are harassed by crows or vultures or both as these thieves try to rob the ospreys of their catch. We have seen battles between the osprey pairs and groups of vultures. Each year several chicks hatch in each nest. The ospreys take turns guarding them. As one guards the other one strikes at the vultures diving toward the nest.

I designed and engineered and built our house about 30 years ago. When I say I built it I mean I acted as the contractor hiring different workers for different phases of the construction. I did build all the stairs. I did the copper gutters and downspouts and I did most of the stonework, 120 yards of stone from Sears Point which I handpicked at the quarry.

Cleanliness:We clean all contact surfaces in the house including all counter tops, table tops, door knobs, cabinet and drawer knobs, railings, chairs, table tops, window sills and any spider webs we find inside and outside (they spin new webs over night). We wash all linens including towels, sheets, pillow cases, the bedspread and table cloths. We clean the bathrooms and all floors. We also put all decorative pillows through the dryer on high.
