Designed by renowned architect Sim Van der Ryn for his family, this memorable home is now available for personal getaways, family gatherings, and small retreats. Comfortably sleeps up to 8 adults in the main house. There is an additional Suite, The Roost, which can be added to sleep up to ten adults. You will relax and unwind in this unique home.


This unique and impressive property was designed and built by renowned architect Sim Van der Ryn and is now available for private gatherings, retreats, and small events.

The main house has 3 bedrooms (King, Queen, Queen), and a comfy alcove bed and sofa bed off of the kitchen/dining/living area. So that's 5 beds in total in the main house. The bed situation is: Cal King, Queen, Queen, double sofa bed, and a double alcove bed.

"The Roost" is a separate one bedroom suite on the ground floor with its own separate entrance. It has a queen bed in the bedroom, and a sofa bed in the front room (new & comfy). This can be added on to your rental for an additional $100 per night plus $50 cleaning fee.

PLEASE NOTE: The nightly rate shown on the listing is for the main house only, for up to 8 people.

In the main house, the ground level has the kitchen/dining room with t.v. and glass doors leading out to the flagstone terrace and koi pond(s), hammock, and bocce court (with real Italian brass balls). Also on the ground level is one bedroom with Queen bed and en-suite bathroom, as well as the yoga/meditation room.
Up just a few steps is the second level with the large living room with wood stove, sofas, chairs, and desk. Just off the living room is the second bedroom (Queen bed) and fabulous bathroom with a sink made from a solid piece of Cypress wood.
Up the spiral wood stairs is the third level, taken up entirely with the Master Suite, featuring a King bed, lots of open space and windows, and a full bath with clawfoot tub.

Interakcija s gostima

The property is professionally managed by Point Reyes Vacation Rentals. If you need or want us, we're close at hand, but otherwise we'll leave you to enjoy the property and each others' company. You will be provided with detailed self checkin instructions. The owner/designer/builder, Sim Van der Ryn, lives on the property just down the driveway, and is available upon request to answer any questions or hang out and chat. Sim is around, and you may see him in the garden or watering some of his fruit trees. He's a super interesting guy and our past guests love bumping into him and hearing his stories about building the home and other fun stuff from his days as a professor at Berkeley and as State Architect (quite a life!)

Ostale napomene

If this property doesn't fit your needs, contact me. I have several other properties in the Point Reyes/Inverness area. Chances are I have just what you're looking for.

We are not able to host weddings or parties here. It's a property to be enjoyed peacefully. Retreats are welcomed.

We are also happy to coordinate other services such as massage, yoga, private chef, etc... Just ask.

We do have neighbors in the area, so after dark is quiet time outside. The hot tub should be enjoyed quietly after dark.
You must have prior approval from us before inviting more than 2 outside guests to the property.

Parking is strictly limited to 4 cars. Absolutely no street parking allowed. It's a tiny winding road through the woods. The neighbors would have a fit.

No howling at the moon. Well, not too much.

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.

In a word, bliss. Can't recommend highly enough. It really is a life experience to stay in a house designed by the master of living sympathetically with nature. Only suggestion - bring anti mosquito spray and anti-mosquito candles. It's nature, they're out there :)

This is am amazing place to stay. Period. The location, the comfort, the neighbors, the full spice rack, incredible! I am torn in telling everyone to rush to stay here, and trying to keep the secret to ourselves. Eco Refuge is where its at. Everything was positively perfect for us, but a different person might find the home rough around the edges. If you are that person who needs their luxury to be shiny and bright, soulless but fancy, name brand and promote-able on your social media feed, other houses may be a better fit. For toddlers or senior citizens, there might also be challenging terrain in the home. But for my family and our friends (and our gaggle of children) it was heavenly. The owners and caretakers were a pleasure to work with. We cant wait to go back.

We were so blown away walking up to this beautiful nature escape from the choking LA smog. Beautiful architectural details complemented by a homey interior with nice art. Fully stocked open kitchen was great for our family getaway. Silence is golden. Best of Marin county, and the kids loved the nearby 'baby beaches.' Spacious and great for a large group/multiple families, we would definitely return in the future. Thanks Sim for continuing to share your vision!

This award winning eclectic house has lots of fun features- doors made by monks, rooms painted by monks, sinks carved out of single pieces of wood. There are 2 living areas and a yoga room. The kitchen was well stocked and he provided plenty of fresh coffee. There are beautiful gardens with fresh fruit and veg, lovely ponds and water features, a large hammock and a bocci court. The hot tub was wonderful and is where we watched meteor showers. There was plenty of coffee provided. We loved hearing the chickens (no roosters!!!). Thanks for sharing your treasure!!

The house is beautiful and full of character, and the surroundings are so relaxing that it feels like a retreat. We played games at the house, the kids sat in the hot tub, and there was lots of sitting around and relaxing. Aaron was terrific--easy to communicate with and full of great suggestions. We hiked every day, ate oysters at a Hog Island picnic, and had dinner each night from a different restaurant and all were wonderful and memorable. All around a wonderful trip and we'll hope to return to the area and stay at the Eco Lodge. Thank you Aaron and Sim.

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.
