"This property meant all the demands of our family. Having the two full bathrooms, especially the one on the lower level is a real plus. The open layout, functional furnishings and superb views were another plus.
The unit was very clean. This property owner was most receptive to our needs. When the sofa bed was not functioning, owner provided a twin mattress for our daughter, which was placed in the living room area.
My few recommendations include:
Advise ahead of time, or include in rental verbage
bring a 6 or 8 roll supply of septic brand toilet paper.
bring a roll of paper towels
bring 2 small bottles of liquid hand soap for both bathrooms
I would recommend buying a silicon spatula for this unit as this is needed with the teflon pots and frying pans. I did find a wooden one but a flat wide one would be easier for flipping pancakes and eggs.
A set of unbreakable glasses for younger guests. Maybe a set of 4 dinner plates, bowls, and salad plates would be perfect.
Corner grocery stocks all your needs, in case you decide not to bring perishables and non-perishables with you.
Parkside Restaurant is perfect spot of dinner. We had dinner there on evenings. Reservations recommended.
Bakery, which opens at 10a is a must go to spot for buying bread, breakfast pastries, and other odds and ends. Coffee kiosk in same area makes perfect coffee. The walk up and down from the complex justifies eating that fattening breakfast chocolate croissant, or other Danish of your choice.
Daughter and grandkids went horseback riding. Daughter said it was an excellent facility with great guides and horses. Plan for a 2 hour morning ride, 9am start, and do make reservations. We drove to Marshalls to Hog Island Oyster Farm to bring back oysters for appetizers. Also stopped in Pt. Reyes on return from Marshalls to go to their large grocery for odds and ends, and bakery across the street for morning pastries. Their rasberry brumble is must have.
A long 1 1/2 hour drive to the UC Davis oceanography site in tip top of Pt. Reyes. Tours provided only on Fridays only from 2 - 4pm.
Of course the beach is a plus. Daughter rented boogie boards for 11 year old grandson to ride the waves. 14 year old granddaughter and daughter enjoyed sitting and relaxing on the beach.
I would not hesitate to return to this property and would strongly recommend it to friends and clients. As a professional travel agent, I am careful with places I stay and recommend."
