Bay Tree Cottage is a two bedroom home with an additional freestanding studio across the back patio. The entire property was extensively remodeled from top to bottom in 2016, and is now open for guests to enjoy beginning in January 2017. The master bedroom has a Queen bed and private balcony perched up on the hillside with a delightful view of the trees and valley below. The second bedroom has two twin beds. In the kitchen you will find everything you need, including coffee, tea, honey/sugar, olive oil, spices (we draw the line at cream, you're on your own there), and all the cooking instruments you could want.
The living room has a functioning fireplace (firelogs provided), tv/cable, wifi, games, books, and views of the rolling hills across Tomales Bay.
The Shed (the rear studio) has a queen bed, kitchenette, and glass shower bathroom.
On the rear deck is a nice Weber gas grill (hardlined to our propane tank), picnic table, and plenty of area to hang out, lay out, run around, you name it. There's also a bonus outdoor game room with a new ping pong table and regulation dart cabinet.
We use professional cleaners who use "green" cleaning products.
You will enjoy the top notch amenities, such as EO soaps and Coyuchi linens, as well as the attention to detail, care and maintenance.
You can walk to the town of Inverness in about 10 minutes, a very pleasant stroll through the neighborhood. Just a 2 minute drive away is Chicken Ranch Beach, as well as Blue Water Kayak rentals, the boat marina & restaurant.
This home is in a quiet secluded neighborhood, and out of respect for our neighbors, we ask that outside noise be kept to a minimum after dark. No parties. Outside guests are limited to 4 without prior approval. If you're looking to have a shindig, please contact me, as I have other homes which may be more appropriate.
Guests have exclusive use and access to the entire property.
Interaction with guests
Everything is set up for self check-in, although we are nearby and available 7 days a week in case any issues come up, or if you just have any questions.
- Outside quiet time after dark. No additional guests without prior approval. Guests are responsible for any damages or charges incurred by them during their stay.
Have fun, be respectful, alert us right away if something is broken or amiss.
This is not the place for parties, if that's what you're looking for, contact me, I have other homes that might work for you. This home is in a very quiet neighborhood and sound travels at night. Out of respect for our neighbors and the home-sharing community, please do not abuse this. You can hang out inside after dark and laugh all night, but not outside where the sound will most certainly annoy our neighbors.
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.
Non-guest visitors are limited to 4 without prior approval. Don't try to throw your wedding here - if that's what you're looking for, contact me, I have other properties that could work for you.
No animals - no exceptions, no matter how well behaved you may think they are, so please don't ask. If you simply must bring your pet, we can refer you to a local lady who dog-sits at her home, or to one of our other properties which welcomes dogs.
No smoking inside - does that even need to be said anymore?
Violation of either of these rules will incur a minimum $500 cleaning fee.
Other than that, we're easy and will assume that you'll be respectful and responsible.
From Dec 29, 2017 - Jan 05, 2018 the minimum stay is 4 nights.

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.
