Located on the shore of pristine Tomales Bay, Joe’s Studio is the perfect economic getaway from the complexities of everyday life. Whether you want to cozy up indoors or stroll along the beach while keeping an eye out for seals and otters, you’ll have everything you need for a memorable escape.

From the deck, lounge in the sun, or grill up some oysters for dinner. Curl up with a book in one of our lounge chairs and enjoy the ebb and flow of the tides on Tomales Bay. Ready for an adventure? Rent a kayak nearby and venture along the bay. Settle in and let the wildlife and changing light on the water entertain you.

The rustic studio is a cozy retreat - all on a quiet, historic private lane on the waterfront. Wake up to the gentle sound of water lapping the shore. Brew a cup in your well-equipped kitchen. Watch the natural inhabitants of the cove: snowy white egrets, great blue herons, countless flocks of shorebirds, seals, otters, sea lions, fish, bat rays and more. Want a memorable evening? Watch the fog roll in and out while sipping a glass of wine with the sun setting over the Point Reyes Peninsula. Studio has a private "bathroom" with toilet and sink. The shower in the kitchen with privacy curtains.

Want to explore? Hop in the car and take a 4-minute drive to Hog Island Oyster Company for a farm tour and lessons in oyster shucking! Drive a little further and explore Point Reyes Station & dozens of hiking trails, beaches, and more within the National Seashore.

Return to your own private retreat to enjoy breathtaking sunsets. If you love to cook, the studio has a fully equipped rustic kitchen. There are 3 BBQs-
1. Smoky Joe (small Weber)- charcoal
2. Propane Weber
3. Black Pit Boss (egg-type)- made of ceramic. Lump charcoal only. There is a Weber metal chimney for starting charcoal.
Or, enjoy a lovely evening out at one of the many acclaimed restaurants in the area.
No pets, please.

Joe's place is in a beautiful and very private location. Perfect place if you love the outdoors. The cabin is simple, clean and functional. The highlights are the three patios, all with views of the bay. Serenity at its best.

What a peaceful place to read a book. Very comfy. Best location. The only drawback is if you plan on doing tons of cooking, there is only the one electric range. Otherwise, highly recommended and there are plenty of great places to eat down the coast.

We have stayed here before and is great for our needs, kayaking mostly. Simple pleasures but the rental went up $50 a day from last year. Look forward to our next visit, we love all the life of Tomales Bay.

Response from Robert:
We are always thrilled when guests such as Steven return. Though we've had to raise rent due to increase costs in virtually everything, Joe's Studio is still the best bargain on the bay

The studio was wonderful. The self-checkin process was seamless. My family had tons of fun staying right on the bay. I couldn't have asked for a better setup.

Great location for exploring the area and visiting all the local restaurants. We enjoyed sitting on the deck and watching the birds. The studio is a quirky little beach house. Comfortable enough but a little odd that the shower is in the kitchen and not part of the bathroom.
