NEW LISTING - As a traveler, myself, I know it's difficult to gauge a vacation rental without seeing reviews and there aren't so many on a new listing, so here's one recently posted on another major listing site by one or our recent guests:
"We had a wonderful stay at the cottage. It’s cozy and romantic. The garden is a great place to relax, read a book, or just be. Saw a pair of otters on the boat ramp, to our amusement. Then a large Great Blue Heron landed just off the rocky beach, maybe hunting for breakfast. The cottage is well-equipped, nicely furnished, comfortable. Robert was very helpful. Two great oyster houses are in walking distance. Everything we needed is close by – great restaurants, shops, grocery, wineries, Cow Girl Creamery for the best cheeses. We will definitely return."

Water Eden Cottage is a beautiful artfully designed small waterfront studio cottage surrounded by gardens & nature's bountiful beauty and variety. The view from this retreat is of the glistening water of Tomales Bay to the sandy beaches and tree-adorned hills of spectacular Point Reyes National Park.

Be nourished by the beauty, sea life, and ever-changing water and skies of pristine Tomales Bay. The cottage is built at this beautiful bay with a water-view 8’ floor-to-ceiling window & sliding glass door. Cozily enjoy wind and waves traversing the bay. Watch dancing sunlight sparkle on the water. Relax in your private lush garden and patio under the apple tree.
WiFi in the cottage, on the deck, in the garden and patio.

When you walk through the gate, you are greeted by cheerful flowers, picturesque trees, and stone sculptures that welcome you to the private patio and cottage entrance. At the patio a gate opens to the 14' deep waterfront deck and glistening water that flows from here to the opposite shore of Tomales Bay. Charming, peaceful and magical as morning lifts revealing an unforgettable view of the National Park... as the tide rhythmically flows in and out offering music of lapping the shore and pilings… as the sea birds call out and clouds pass over to an ever-changing vista of sky and water.

Enter the artfully designed, light-filled studio cottage that opens to the patio and the deck and find you are still surrounded by natural beauty. An 8' sliding glass door looks out to deck and water, large windows frame lovely views of the trees and surrounding gardens everywhere you look. The complete kitchen offers a delightful view of gardens through a porthole window.

The bathroom offers an experience of luxuriating in art and beauty… exquisite tile work, a charming copper bowl sink set atop a beautiful redwood burl base, an 8 jet Jacuzzi tub with a large window looking out at the private garden and cliff top with sky beyond.
Water Eden cottage is furnished with a comfortable queen Murphy bed and full size futon couch. The Murphy bed and dining table look out on the water. There are pamphlets and books for your enjoyment and to learn about local history and places to visit. Sit on the deck, climb down to the rocky beach at low tide (access is shared), or enjoy gazing at the water in comfort in all kinds of weather from inside the cottage or out. If you gaze long enough, you'll notice a seal or otter swimming by. You may see kayaks from the near-by concession paddling across to the beaches on the far shore or an occasional oyster boat pass by. At various times of the year the Bay teems with sea birds, schools of herring, salmon, dolphin and feasting seals. If you’re lucky sea otters, a great blue heron or snowy white egret may invite themselves onto the deck.

Water Eden Cottage is an incredible and inspiring setting for the thinker, writer or painter part of us all. This is the perfect setting for when you long to slow down, open yourself and be nourished and restored in a quiet, serene place overflowing with nature's magic. It’s ideal for a secluded retreat, for just getting away from the fast pace and noise of 21st century life. This is a place to ponder what's really important, or for a couple wanting to enjoy and connect with each other in a quiet, nourishing and romantic space.

Should you want to pull yourself away and enjoy a walk, you can wander the old fashioned Marshall Boat Works, enjoy delicious sandwiches and decadently irresistible barbecued oysters at the Marshall Store overlooking the water, chow down at Tony's Seafood or walk the other way to the lively and delicious happening at the Hog Island Oyster Company.

Nearby there are great beaches and hiking trails in Point Reyes National Park. You might enjoy a walk on its endless miles of white sand beaches or gazing upon the abundant wildlife: the herd of albino deer, Thule elk, nesting American Bald Eagles, unbelievable variety of plants and ancient redwoods, or, visit the award winning Visitor Center and carefully restored Native American Village, Kule Loklo.
Take a short drive (30 minutes) and you can walk Dillon Beach and buy fresh crab from the boats of Bodega Bay. Just 15 minutes south is Point Reyes Station, then Inverness and Olema all of which offer a variety of fine restaurants, galleries and shops to explore, and great entertainment as well. A twenty minute drive North on Highway 1 brings you to Freestone and the Osmosis Spa, offering enzyme baths in a Japanese garden setting. Out-of-this world bakeries can be found in Point Reyes Station, Tomales and Freestone.

It’s a short walk to the Hog Island Oyster Co. and Marshall Store & Boatworks (great fun when herring are in season). Each serves decadently delicious locally grown oysters (favorites are the barbecued and Rockefeller... mmm!). Tony's Seafood Restaurant is a few min ride South and Nick's cove is a short drive North. Great restaurants and bars, some with music, are nearby in Point Reyes Station, Olema, and Inverness. Have a ball at the Dance Palace in Point Reyes Station. You’ll find delicious bakeries in Pt. Reyes Station, Tomales (15 min), and Freestone (25 min).

Water Eden COTTAGE is a small studio cottage, which can comfortably sleep 4. If you're on a budget, you'll find it's the best bargain on the Tomales Bay waterfront.
3-night minimum on National Holidays.
Optional second unit is a complete private 1 bedroom house with its own kitchen & features a hot tub in the garden, stream with waterfall and pond. Both units together have 2 hot tubs, 2 bathrooms and sleep 8. See our listing for Water Eden HOUSE

This is a great little studio with a fantastic private hot tub! You are walking distance from both Hog Island Oyster Co. and The Marshall store. Nice little oasis.

A great place from which to relax, watch the wildlife from your window, and explore the astounding Point Reyes Wilderness. I watched birds, sea otters, storms, and sunsets as I read, wrote, and did yoga on the deck. The hot tub was a relaxing treat after a long day hike, and the garden was in full bloom. Although the studio does border the larger house, so it is not perfectly private, the space is tranquil and serene and Robert did everything he could to make my stay of excellent comfort. Thank you for everything; I will be back!

Relaxing waterfront property on Tomales Bay. The proximity to Pt. Reyes and oyster farms made for a perfect combination of hiking and then grilling on the deck. The place was clean and well stocked. We had a great relaxing weekend in West Marin.

This is a wonderful place to stay. It is modest, well furnished, and in beautiful yet accessible area on highway 1. It should be noted that the unit is attached to the same house as another unit so is not totally private. Also, the deck is set back between two others so the view of the water, while still beautiful, is about 90 degrees. Even with those things we still loved it and had a great time and definitely recommend it for a quiet and beautiful getaway.
