Beautiful skylight-lit home nestled into a wooded hillside. Quiet, secluded location but close to everything - about two miles from Point Reyes Station, Inverness, and the Point Reyes National Seashore visitors' center. Plus an easy 5 min walk for coffee or a sandwich at Inverness Park Market, or birding at the Giacomini Wetlands.

This home has been listed on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) for years, with over 50 five star reviews, but we've just now put it onto Airbnb, so that's why there's no reviews yet.

The space

Two Bedrooms (Queen, Double beds)
One Full Bath with large tub/shower
Sofa Bed in Living Room
Wood-burning stove (firelogs provided)
New Weber Gas Grill (propane provided)
Quiet residential neighborhood
Year-round creek directly across the driveway
A short walk to Inverness Park Market & Tap Room Restaurant
Surrounded by Trees & Nature
Full Kitchen with Plenty of Space and Light - (opens onto living room and back yard so the cook can still be a part of the action)
Kitchen is fully stocked, including coffee, tea, sugar, spices, oils
Upscale amenities including EO soaps and Coyuchi linens.
We use a professional cleaning service between each guest, using "green" cleaning products and wherever possible we avoid strong chemicals.

The home is a split level house with a full-time resident downstairs. The full-time tenant is very nice and considerate, and she has her own separate entrance on the other side of the house. There is a common "landing" with a shared washer/dryer for both tenants and the resident to use. The parking is shared, there is room for one car in the driveway, with additional street parking available.

The backyard, grill and terrace are exclusively for our guests. The gas grill is new (propane provided). Enjoy hanging out in the sunny backyard, enjoying the views of the trees surrounding the property and going up the hillside. It's the perfect place for grilling your favorite foods and shucking a few oysters while spending time together.

Guest access

This home is ideal for one or two couples with one or two children. Please note that this home is in a quiet residential area. Out of consideration for our neighbors and the downstairs tenant, we ask that guests keep noise to a minimum after 9pm. If you're looking for a home that's more appropriate for hanging out a bit later and celebrating, I have other properties in the area which would be more appropriate, just ask.

Other things to note

Upon confirmation of your reservation you will receive our "Insider's Guide" with plenty of local tips and recommendations you won't find in the guide books and websites, to help you plan your time in the area.

Have fun, be respectful, alert us right away if something is broken or amiss.
This is not the place for parties, if that's what you're looking for, contact me, I have other homes that might work for you.

We recommend that you bring slippers or sandals and leave your shoes at the door.

Note: We reserve the right to enforce charges via the Airbnb Resolutions Center for damages or unreasonable use of listing utilities. Abuse of house amenities may result in post-reservation charges equal to the value of costs incurred. By booking our listing, you agree to these terms and all other house rules.

Non-guest visitors are limited to 2 without prior approval. Don't try to throw your wedding or party here - if that's what you're looking for, contact me, I have other properties that could work for you.

No animals - no exceptions, no matter how well behaved you may think they are, so please don't ask. If you simply must bring your pet, we can refer you to a local lady who dog-sits at her home, or to one of our other properties which welcomes dogs.

No smoking inside - does that even need to be said anymore?

Violation of either of these rules will incur a minimum $500 cleaning fee.

Other than that, we're easy and will assume that you'll be respectful and responsible.
Thanks!

This house is comfortable and in the trees, very pretty location, with all of Pt Reyes National seashore easily accessible. Great headquarters for so many possible outings to beaches and hikes.

This is a nice place to stay! It is very comfortable and there are many skylights bringing in light and big tree views. Motion detectors lit up the stairs at night, which is wonderful as it is dark out there. You can see many stars! It's a great location to get to different parts of Point Reyes Seashore.

About Aaron

We are Point Reyes Vacation Rentals, helping property owners market their vacation homes and to provide the best possible experiences for our guests. My wife and I both love to surf, hike, beach-comb, explore farmers markets, and eat good fresh local food prepared well. We both have careers in hospitality, and we feel strongly about the importance of customer service and the feeling of satisfaction that comes from providing others with the best possible experience. We love being hosts, and providing a nice, clean, comfortable "base camp" from which you can explore this amazing area we are so lucky to live in.
