About the Property

1BR + sitting room sleep 3, hot tub, near beaches and parks, dramatic sunsets.

The sparkling new Garden Spa House is freshly built and is nestled away in the back of a property located in one of the Point Reyes village rural neighborhoods. Taking the raised pathway to the house, it feels like you have entered your own secret garden and are far away, yet you are less than a mile from downtown Point Reyes village and shops. Without getting back into your car, you can walk down the easy back trail right into town.

Immaculate kitchen with huge granite island that spans the great room for easy cooking, conversation, and Netflix movies. Blender, oven, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, coffee maker and French coffee press, wine and other glasses, all dishes, pots & pans. Fridge and sink provide filtered water. Fridge icemaker and water easily accessed on front panel. Secluded, new outdoor spa for quiet, nighttime star gazing. Bathroom features a deep soaking tub for those who prefer the indoors. Beds for 3: a luxury pillow top queen in one bedroom and a day bed with a trundle in the sitting room.


Large covered front porch for morning coffee or spectacular sunset views over Inverness Ridge - rain or shine. House is surrounded by grass and gardens with views all around. It sits near a former seasonal pond that is long gone, but still the ducks and birds fly around the yard as if they remember. The sunny location allows for enjoyment of the outdoors year-round. Taking a private hot tub under the black and starry night sky or watching the winter storms roll in are experiences that will ease your mind and enliven your senses. Having the comforts of WIFI and phone will keep you connected while finding yourself in the beauty of a small village.

The house is completely independent from the other dwelling on the property and is set apart with zen-like privacy screens. Guests have their own parking space. Smoking and pets are not allowed. House is located just 3.5 miles from the Point Reyes National Seashore visitor center where you can get information regarding the beaches, bay, lagoon, estero, forests, meadows, wild life, birds, creeks, rivers, trails. Lighthouse just 30 minute drive. Close to fishing, kayaking, paddleboarding, hiking, wine tasting, photographing. Experience the wilderness beauty - rolling green hills and ocean cliffs with sunshine sparkling on the water and dramatic sunsets.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1991

About the owner: Owners have lived in and loved the Point Reyes National Seashore area for 38 years, and continue to marvel at the extraordinary beauty, wildlife, ocean, bay and forest. We have lived on the property in the other dwelling for 25 years. We enjoy the interesting rural, agricultural, fishing and artistic community and people who make up the area of West Marin. We commute to our jobs each day. We completed construction of the new house in January, 2015. We think we live in Paradise, so we want to share this feeling with others.

Why the Owner Chose Point Reyes Station, CA, USA:
We purchased this property because of the lifestyle required to live in a wilderness area, and being 40 miles from metropolitan San Francisco. Not exactly 'off the grid', but similar - stacking wood and making fires for heat; gardening and growing our own food and eggs; playing and working outdoors; home made cooking vs fast food; sharing life's joys and burdens with close friends and neighbors; loving the libraries and live theatre, music, and dance. We love outdoor adventure and wilderness and wanted to raise our children in the sheer spiritual dimensions of this wilderness area and the hard work and creativity required to live here. And then there's the Point Reyes National Seashore: ocean, bay, lagoon, estero, forests, meadows, beaches, wild life, birds, creeks, rivers, trails. We moved here because we spent every weekend here when we lived in Oakland and SF. The rolling green hills with cows grazing fall gently into the creeks and radically become cliffs over the ocean. Either place the sunshine sparkles on the water before it dramatically sets. The gentle breezes relax our whole being along with the exquisite beauty. Prior to living here, we travelled here to visit the pristine beaches, the famous Point Reyes Lighthouse, hike and bike through Bear Valley and to explore Tomales Bay. The new house we built is pristinely clean and new, with all new furniture and appliances, a beautiful and comfortable spot to spend your weekend or week. You have total privacy with your own sparkling new hot tub. It's a lovely place with lovely surrounds, and close to all outdoor adventures and secret getaways.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We fell in love with this property because it was close to downtown Point Reyes, but absolutely quiet and peaceful and near the National Seashore. It was a half acre of grass and wild blackberries, and still is in many ways. The seasonal pond is long gone, but still the ducks and birds fly around the yard as if they remember, many generations later! We love the full sun AND wind protection, allowing us to enjoy the outdoors year-round, and the stunning views of the Inverness Ridge and Tomales Bay at the end of our road. The "back path" is our private short cut to downtown, walking next to Tomasini Creek. The front porch views of gardens, trees, and the ridge, along with taking a hot tub under the black and starry night sky or watching the winter storms roll in are experiences that will ease your mind and enliven your senses. Having the comforts of WIFI will keep you connected while finding yourself in the beauty of a small village.
