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’.

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!
Justinian's listing was spectacular! This listing was better than expected, had amazing views, and was incredibly relaxing. It was in a perfect location for venturing into town for brunch and for exploring the nearby beaches.
A nice, clean bottom-level apartment/flat with all the amenities we needed, and more, for our one-night stay. It's not fancy, kind of dated actually, but definitely clean and functional, which is all we wanted. Towels were provided in the bathroom. In-unit washer dryer was nice to have and use, and the WiFi worked well. The kitchen looked functional, but we didn't use it (would have if we were there longer). We did hear some noise from the residents above, but just foot steps and doors opening/closing - nothing too loud. Otherwise a good quiet location with lots of hikes and outdoor activities, and at least two restaurants a few minutes (drive) away. The sunny deck (morning sun, facing East) has a view to the bay and would is great for morning coffee or breakfast or book-reading. The check-in/out process was super easy, which allowed us to arrive and depart with minimal effort - a huge plus. Would definitely stay again.
The cabin has two units, the upper (larger) and the lower (smaller).
We stayed in the lower unit (smaller), which is on the pics.
The cabin was perfect with amazing view over the Tomales Bay that you can enjoy from the big deck.
Cabin has lots of natural light coming in and the opens super nice views on the the bay.
Inside the cabin was nice, neat and clean, with basic and well functioning amenities including WiFi.
No TV which was great!
A perfect getaway for those who want to escape the city life.
Will be back for sure!
Very relaxing place to stay in a remote location where you won't be disturbed by traffic driving by. Even though the home is bordering other houses along the small road, it feel as though you have the place to yourself. The trees provide good cover and privacy. The place was peaceful and quiet. Basic amenities were provided like a towel, dish washing soap and the basics for showering. I had an issue where I could not get the fire place turned on. I contact the hosts through airbnb and they responded right away. I got it turned on and was able to relax by the fireplace at the end of the night after a day of hiking.

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
