About the owner: Our family ( 4 generations of Californians) have Northern California in our blood and the natural beauty of Point Reyes draws us together in this little edge of heaven, helping define us as outdoors lovers. We have spent much of our free time in adventure travel throughout the world. In the year 2000 we decided to celebrate by walking across Europe. We started at the North Sea and 4 months and 1,100 miles later found ourselves in Geneve. Traveling on remote pathways we stayed at countless vacation homes and bed and breakfasts. It was with that experience in mind that we designed One Mesa for short and extended stays. Our hope is that our guests will feel that our lovely home provides them the comfort and beauty that makes this the spot you will always come back.
Why the Owner Chose Point Reyes Station: We discovered the wonder of Point Reyes over 30 years ago when we would come to the Pt Reyes National Sea Shore to be in nature and get away from the city on weekends. We fell in love with this amazing corner of the world, with its little village, surrounded by a wild and natural beauty that is hard to believe is so close to a metropolitan center. This is a perfect place to walk,hike,bike, do photography,horseback ride, kayak,paint,read, write or just plain BE. A great vacation spot for nature lovers and those wanting easy access to places like San Francisco, Napa,and Sonoma, while being in a quiet world away from the 'maddening crowd'.
The Unique Benefits at this House: This lovely Mesa Road house, behind an electric gate, is on the sunny Pt Reyes mesa, is so centrally located that you can walk to town, drive 5 miles up to Marshall for a quick Kayak, an oyster or two on the Bay or pop over (National Park HQ 2 miles away) to the National Sea Shore Park for an all day hike...or just sit on the decks, in the gardens and enjoy the sky, the birds and the hot tub right without leaving the property! The deer do come right into the back field and the occasional bobcat has been seen prowling about. We spot Hawk and other feathered friends just sitting still.
