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.

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!)
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.
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.
