"This house is on the main road through Bolinas that leads to the ocean, and is as close to the sea as it can be without being underwater. Staying in this house is like staying on a giant stationary ship. The ocean waves crash against the front of the house. The downstairs bedrooms provide an amazing opportunity to view the waves from the comfort of a bedroom or even a bathtub. The views are mesmerizing. It’s hard to do anything in this house other than gaze at the ocean. This house would be especially great for people who love the ocean but cannot easily spend time on the beach.
Every bedroom has its own lovely bathroom—it was hard to choose which room to stay in. The steam shower and hot tub were awesome. The pool was too cold to swim in, but my nephew had fun going in there with his wetsuit on, and the pool is beautiful. While the house is not child proofed, it is child-friendly, with an ample supply of toys and lots of outdoor space to play. The caretaker was friendly and helpful, and the owner was responsive and easy to communicate with.
Bolinas is indeed a hidden gem with a great grocery co-op and an artsy bohemian feel. On the path to the beach someone wrote "For many of us, this place is sacred space." I felt that.
I would consider myself lucky to get to return to this special house with my family next year."

"We spent a romantic and relaxing Valentine's Day weekend at Oceansong! It was obvious that from the moment that we opened the front door and heard the welcoming soft music, champagne, and chocolate awaiting us, that we were in for a memorable time! The house is "oozing" with character and charm! Creta and Bill were wonderful hosts! Bill stopped by to greet us was very helpful in giving us tips about the area, some history and points of interest that we may want to see.
We were excited to spend our first day exploring through some bushy areas at the beach. When we got back to the house, I realized that I had a tick in my arm....yikes! :-( Trying to be brave and not really being prepared for this, I called Bill and Creta to see if they could come to the rescue. Bill not only brought over some tweezers, a magnifying glass, and Hydrogen Peroxide, he also helped me get that critter out of my arm. I was thankful that they lived very close by and were so helpful in an "emergency". The weekend went by way too quickly...so quickly in fact, that I lost track of days. I appreciated that Creta and Bill checked in with us the morning of our scheduled departure or we may have inadvertently "crashed" the next visitors stay. Next time we will just have to stay a bit longer!"

"Our family has been staying here for the past three years. Each year we stay longer and longer, and each stay is better and better. The property is absolutely gorgeous. Our boys enjoy the freedom of the space, the animals (bunnies, dogs, horses, chickens, ducks!) and the secret spots in the woods. The wonderful golden retrievers greet us upon arrival and keep the boys company on their explorations. We enjoy the views, the weather and our evening fires. Over the years, we have brought both sets of grandparents with us, as well as many friends. Everyone that has joined us has loved the property as much as we do. We all feel reconnected after our time there. Besides the specialness of the place, the location is great to explore from -- surfing in Bolinas, hiking in Pt Reyes, and many, many local beaches to chose from. We'll be back soon. Our 8-yr-old declared after our last visit that he never wants to go 3 months again without visiting."

"We had a large group in town for a wedding just down the road and rented all three buildings. The entire Briarcombe estate was just incredible. Each space is more detailed and beautiful than the next, and the grounds were gorgeous. Rozlyn was responsive, friendly, and very accommodating. I hope to be able to return someday."
