This house reflects the lives of my grandparents. My grandfather was a master mariner by profession. He sailed in the American Merchant Marine from the 1920s to the 1940s, circumnavigating the globe more than 25 times. His wartime service was as captain of the Liberty ship, SS John Fiske, whose identifying plaque from the ship’s bridge is on the eastern exterior wall next to the steering wheel. When they retired in the 1970s, my grandparents chose this location so that he and my grandmother could have a quiet life in the woods, but at the same time could see the horizon and part of the sea.
The tree-top setting is just a half-mile from the town of Inverness with its store, post office, café, and restaurants; and a ten-minute drive from the restaurants, shops and weekend Farmers’ Market of Point Reyes Station. Beaches, hiking trails and the Point Reyes National Seashore are within walking distance or a short car ride, and the south-facing deck is sunny and warm all day. But don't take our word for it--read what the New York Times had to say about Salt Water, the local restaurant, and the delights of the wider area. '36 hours in Marin County', 27 Jan. 2013.
We hope that you enjoy our house, enter into its spirit enjoying the views of Tomales Bay, the hills, woods and beaches of western Marin and Elephant Mountain bathed in the ever- changing light of the Point Reyes Peninsula, a very special ‘Island in Time’.

The apartment was everything we expected! The ad is very truthful when describing the unit. We enjoyed our stay in the cottage and being so close to Point Reyes. Justinian was also very responsive to all my questions I had in advance!
This home is so sweet. The view is stunning and I could of spent all day sitting on the porch gazing through the trees at Tomalas bay and black mountain. It was very clean and beautiful. When I arrived the housekeeper was there and she was so helpful and welcoming. The location is perfect, right in the middle of all the trails and point Reyes station. Just lovely!

About the Host, Justinian
I am a wine broker living in San Francisco. This house has been in our family for my entire life, and I have grown up swimming in the bay, hiking the hills and surfing the oceans around this beautiful part of California.
The owner is the daughter of Vladimir and her name is Vladia. She is gracious and this is THE place in Inverness to grab a pint of beer. They often have live entertainment as well.Sir Francis Drake Boulevard Inverness CA 94937
