“Loved it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2007

I found this place on vrbo, a site for owners to list their cottages. Because they can edit their guest comments, tripadvisor is invaluable.

A cottage built directly over the water on Hwy 1, in Marshall about 9 miles from the town of Pt. Reyes. There is a small place to park two small cars or one large one. . The house is perfect for a family, 2 large double beds upstairs, one separate bedroom down. The owners have blessedly used common sense in furnishing it --casual, gently used furnishings that can stand the wear many guests (as opposed to places with all white sofas!). The kitchen is well stocked with spices, sugar, condiments and cooking utensils. This was the best pantry I've ever seen, but don't forget to bring your own coffee, tea and creamer. The hot tub was clean, and a welcome relief after traveling. There are yoga mats as well. The owners are considerate of the local economy and have lots of information on merchants and restaurants. They are also generous with information on wildlife as well as the ecology. In all, this is a very well considered vacation rental.

Things to be mindful of: 1. Before you come up, stop into the grocery store in Pt. Reyes Station to buy your supplies. 2. The stairs up to the second floor are extremely steep. This isn't a house for those with mobility or vision problems. 3. The deck railing is not built to code and is very rickety. This isn't a place for people who cannot swim or have young children. We hope they will invest and fix the deck railing.

  • Liked — The location directly on the bay
  • Disliked — The rickety deck railing surrounding the house that isn't built to code.
