Stop your search and just stay here! This house has everything you could ask for and more for rejuvenation and relaxation. We really enjoyed the central location (drove to Bodega Bay for dinner one night, quick trips over to Pt. Reyes Station, Limantour & Bear Valley, and close enough for an out of the way experience at Pierce Pint/McClure Beach). Enjoyed sunrise coffee and sunset cocktails on the deck over the water and spotted seals and otters daily. The kitchen, grill, and oyster sucking kit made cooking & eating at home a dream. The hot tub & kayaks set this place over the top. Great for a truly magical 2-person getaway!

Driftwood Cottage is amazing! While just a tad small for our family of 4 (though not unexpectedly so, we knew it's a one bedroom), we had a wonderful time and made wonderful family memories. The place is so calming and peaceful, but with plenty for everyone to do. The kids loved the sand beach, we all loved watching the wildlife and the tide go in and out. Lots of great activities nearby - we can't wait to return to do even more!

Driftwood Cottage is an amazing place to stay. We will certainly come back. We love sitting on the porch, watching the sea birds in Tomales Bay. We cherish the sound of waves lapping against the beach at night. We reminisce about writing sitting on that couch, watching the fog roll over the Point Reyes peninsula. And we keep coming back for more. This spot is so special, so remote and peaceful, and so restorative. I can't recommend Driftwood Cottage enough. The accommodations are clean, modern, and well thought out. Even the small kitchen makes for a lovely place to cook meals with a beautiful view. The hot tub is wonderful, and the beach is amazing. We are totally in love with West Marin as well. We went back to the Saltwater Oyster Depot in Inverness, and picked up some of our favorite farm fresh cheese from Bohemian Creamery in Sebastopol. Really, this place is special. I'd be there every weekend if I could.

Lovely cottage for 2 people, built right out on Thomalas Bay, set back off the road so you don't hear much traffic. Great front deck overlooking the bay, and nice hot tub tucked in back, also with a nice view of the bay.

Wonderful location, literally "on" Tomales Bay, facing west toward the Pt. Reyes peninsula across the water. The cottage is comfortable, stylish and relaxed -- perfect for the get-away we were looking for. The cottage is a few minutes' drive to our favorite oyster "shack", and a few minutes' more to Pt. Reyes Station (and then on to Inverness and the wonders of the Pt. Reyes peninsula. It is definitely on our list for return visits.

Aaron User ProfileAaron is a superhost.

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.
