Guestbook comments from the owner

Just packing up after a lovely birthday weekend! Your home is just fabulous, so cozy and well appointed. We spent a day in Point Reyes Station and took a couple of gorgeous runs around the area! Those Highland cows are too cute! Can't wait to come back.

Beautiful and Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Catherine's house in Tomales is SPECTACULAR! Like many others, we were displaced due to the fires in Sonoma County, and Catherine's house served as a refuge for me and my family. The house was open, newly renovated, spacious and very inviting. The cool ocean breeze was calming and the little town of Tomales was adorable! We spent our days eating at the large dining table, driving a scenic and very short drive to Dillon Beach, walking around the quaint town of Tomales, picking apples from the apple tree in the backyard, and just relaxing in each other's company. There is a pizza oven in the backyard also... which was a huge hit! We had a pizza night and made some fantastic memories.

The house also allowed dogs, which was great since we had 2 Great Danes! The backyard is ginormous, and the pups really enjoyed running around in the open space. Oh, and the outdoor shower in the backyard was really fun too! It's very enclosed and private and it was so awesome to look up and see blue skies and birds flying.

Catherine was extremely accommodating, and very hospitable. I'd give her 10 stars if I could! We'll definitely be staying here in the future.

Another great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the house and peaceful garden. It is the perfect size for two couples, and a great home base for excursions to Doran Beach, Bodega, and the surrounding towns. We enjoyed eating at Nick’s Cove and Dinucci’s.

The house was simply delightful! The chickens and outdoor shower were enjoyed by all. We loved being able to walk into town and the short drive to the beach. We would highly recommend this rental home!

A hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

My idea of a perfect vacation is to be at least as comfortable as I am at home. I live in a beautiful home, so I am a tough critic. This Tomales home is beautifully designed and maintained -- with furnishings and kitchenware similar to my own. The kitchen can accommodate the most demanding cook. The living room has multiple couches and chairs for comfort. The yard is huge and well landscaped, with a deck and cavernous outside shower outside the kitchen French doors. Every detail in terms of amenities and supplies has been addressed. Dog-friendly Dillon Beach is less than 10 minutes away, and the awesome Tomales bakery and homemade sausage sandwich shop are within a block. Restaurants, wineries, and scenic spots are less than 30 minutes away -- no need to spend vacation time battling traffic. I cannot imagine a more relaxing or welcoming environment. One thing to note is that entry to the house involves stairs. I will bring more, lighter suitcases and containers when I return!

Property was very nice. Clean and comfortable. From landscape to interior, Catherine has done an excellent job facilitating a wonderful guest experience. Day trips to Dillon Deach and Bodega Bay are very easy from this property.
