Wonderful house and gorgeous location!!

  • 5 of 5

I just had such an amazing time at this beautiful property. The houses are really lovely with great amenities and the beds are comfortable. But the views are just amazing! Right on the water with your own private dock to watch the sunset. Really can't beat that. The only drawback was the hot tub didn't work during our stay, but Dana was quick to offer me a refund without me even asking. Dana was also very gracious when my friend drove off with the house's yoga mats in her car... She let her drop them off in SF which was a lot more convenient than driving them back up to Tomales Bay. I really had a great time at this property and hope to stay here again!!

Majestic view and gorgeous houses

  • 5 of 5

Me and my wedding party stayed at Dana's house for 2 days for my wedding at Straus Home Ranch. During the planning process, Dana was responsive and helpful. I managed to visit this house during my wedding site visit at Straus. It really helped me figure out the details and plan out the stays for my party.

During the wedding weekend, my wedding party were so impressed by the serene beauty of this space, the view, and the house itself. Everything was perfect for me and my bridesmaids to get ready.

The only issue we ran into was how to get hot water shower in the white house. There was only cold water. We managed to shower in the red boathouse without a problem, but perhaps it could be mentioned in the guest manual for future reference.

Me and my friends would certainly consider come back here for a weekend getaway!

Perfect spot for a family reunion while attending my son's wedding

  • 5 of 5

My son had a three day wedding celebration across Highway 1 at the Strauss Dairy Farm. Dana's Place was the perfect spot for us to stay. It easily accommodated 11 of us (my son slept in the teepee) and the house was well supplied for our needs. Dana has added so many interesting and whimsical touches to the decor ... it was like staying in an eclectic museum. The layout and furniture were perfect for visiting when we were away from the wedding festivities, and the location was ideal for excursions to Point Reyes National Seashore and Bodega Bay. Thank you, Dana for being the perfect hostess and affording us this memorable opportunity.

Beautiful, peaceful, cozy space

This place is absolutely stunning, really cozy, and right on the water. The houses and gardens are beautifully decorated, with a lot of attention to detail. Our group had a really lovely time there. I can't wait to go back!

Just over an hour from San Francisco, yet like visiting another country. Private, yet lots to do. A foodie farm-to-table mecca, with oysters, grass fed beef, organic farms, Cow Girl Creamery, Wineries, Brick Maiden Bakery. Great restaurants or private meals with the farmers. Kayaking, paddle boarding, sailing, trail running, hiking, horseback riding, biking or just be lazy. Blissful.

Less than an hour to the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Bodega Bay.
