Wonderful house, private and serene, great location in Inverness Park

  • 5 of 5

We started calling it a tree house, as it sits in an upper canapy. Lots of great art and reading material to enjoy. Lovely garden and running creek. Thanks to the Kramer family! Great spot; hope to return some day...

Needs work

  • 3 of 5

The water would not shut off. So we had to shut off at night which was very inconvenience. The smoke

Alarm goes off at any random time and when we asked about it the comment was yeah that happens I don’t know why. The dryer needed repair and our bread was eaten by some animal during the night. I’m sure a mouse or rat. We actually checked out a day early due to the water issue

Owner's Response: Any plumbing emergency is an inconvenience for everyone and we're sorry that the timing affected our guests. We were able to do the needed repair on a Sunday afternoon but they decided to leave property a couple hours earlier. We checked the dryer and it seems to be working. Unfortunately, as any house in the woods,we do periodically have a mouse in the house. We are sending this guest a partial refund for their inconvenience and hope our other reviews will better speak for our great home.

Very serene. Peaceful. Quiet. Just what my wife and I needed.

  • 5 of 5

This house exceeded our expectations. I’m a builder and my wife a designer. We were very appreciative of the efforts put into the work on this rental. A beautiful little place. We’ve owned 3 vacation rentals ourselves and we often compare others to ours. Next to our luxury rentals, this was the very nicest VR we have ever stayed in. As a suggestion-provide more coffee filters than 1 per days stay. Needed paper towels, steak knives, and a supply of fire wood. These are trivial items, but, unless you cook a ribeye you can cut with a fork, you’re in trouble. I cook bacon in the morning and would have been happy to find the paper towels for draining the bacon. Really, other than these very minor exceptions, we couldn’t have asked for more. The landscaping was just beautiful. Way better than the pictures on line depict. We bought some firewood (overpriced) in town and had a glass of wine by firelight. Very relaxing. We will be back in the near future. A tremendous bang for your buck. Thank you Dave for meeting us and pointing us to the best oyster haunts. We tried them and you were right. Very good.

Artistic Gem in the Woods

  • 4 of 5

We loved this house, wonderful art and furniture, beautiful gardens. We love big, claw-foot bathtubs. We would have rated this a 5 if the bathroom and bedrooms were on the same floor. Some of the windows didn't have screens. We like to open the house up, and without screens we were afraid to let mosquitoes in. It's a narrow, steep driveway without much maneuver room for parking. Of course, we brought our F250 crew cab truck, and it was doable but tricky. Not a problem in a regular passenger car. We would definitely rent this home again. Great location, close to everything, yet you feel like you're in your own private garden paradise. We'll be back!!

The house is located midway between Point Reyes Station and Inverness. The area is small town rural and is bordered by ranchlands, the Point Reyes National Seashore and Tomales Bay. Our property sits privately among the fir and bay laurel trees above a year round creek. This area is all about the outdoors and features great hiking, biking, surfing, beaches and more.
