You couldn't ask for a better coastal get away. The location is a charming little patch of heaven and the host home takes advantage of this with the perfect layout to enjoy the views. The home is cozy with EVERYTHING you need to relax and enjoy the California coastline. I was here for a nearby retreat and I am so glad I chose to stay here. The environment is perfect for silence and being able to sit on the deck overlooking the water was just what I needed for time away and self reflection. I highly recommend this home AND the host as they truly make sure you have what you need to enjoy your stay. The furniture is comfortable in the living areas and the beds are wonderful. The Master bedroom looks right out on the water and even though the smaller rooms are at the other side of the house, the sound of the water lulls you gently to sleep at night. We ate at Tony's Restaurant (yes, Fred provided a restaurant list) and the clam chowder was to DIE FOR! I didn't use all of the amenities because of the nature of my plans, but there is no shortage of creature comforts. Visit this lovely spot. You will be glad you did.

You deserve to treat yourself to tranquility on the bay! Fred and Karin's home is truly a special treat. The views are beyond gorgeous and the home is spacious with three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and a well appointed kitchen. They even had tea and honey and fresh coffee beans and a coffee grinder. Our daughter had the small bedroom and said she had one of the deepest sleeps she's ever had. Our son and his girlfriend had the medium sized bedroom and so got to have their own separate space. We had the stunning master bedroom and bath which are huge. The master bedroom has a gas fireplace and an incredibly comfortable bed (I believe a king.) a chaise long and an elegant glass desk. Each morning we woke to striking views of the bay. There is access to the deck from both the master bedroom and the living room. In addition, there is a television/game room accessed through the master bedroom. If this was not enough, Fred and Karin supply many luxuries such as plush cotton robes, slippers, flip flops, sumptuous lotions, soaps, moisturizers etc. They also offer very detailed instructions about using their hot tub and other aspects of the house, as well as nearby places to visit and eat so that you can make the most of your time at their home. The house is a destination in and of itself! I swam in the bay and my son did a little fishing off the dock. Fred and Karin left fresh cut flowers in every room. I loved the sun flowers on the dining room table! To top off our welcome, Fred and Karin left us a bottle of wine and a very detailed personal note. There is a wonderful bakery in Tomales and the house is near Dillon Beach and Point Reyes. We had a great meal at Tony's - their mussels were superb. Again, Tranquility on the Bay is a destination in and of itself!

This beautiful home right on Tomales bay is an exquisite find for enjoying the area. The pictures are accurate and the home is well equipped. Our family of 5, my parents me and my two adult children were very comfortable here. The Master bedroom is really stunning. The 2nd bedroom has a queen and is comfortable. The third bedroom is small but was perfect for my son. The kitchen is well equipped, the front garden and the back deck are both inviting outdoor spaces. This is a special property.

I moved away from west Marin (Pt. Reyes/Marshall) area 24 years ago. Periodically I return to take in the beauty and remember the place I once called home. This house is in the perfect location, is comfortable, and has incredible views. You're in the middle of oyster country, can access Pt. Reyes National Seashore quickly, are close to downtown Pt. Reyes and can easily venture north on Route 1 if you choose. Fred made the whole experience simple and easy. Couldn't ask for anything more.
