Great hosts of a perfectly described "nest." Was looking for a weekend getaway focused on enjoying the sustainable and green aspects of point reyes, including good food, good wine (and mead), nature and cozy, eco-friendly accommodations. Marcia is a fantastic host and the space was perfect for my getaway.

I wasn't sure if I would ever AirBnB again after last spring and the weirdo hostess I had in St. Louis. I gave it one last chance with this booking and am glad I did. This was not weird at all. It was simple, no hassle, with a great hostess and lovely accommodations. The room is extremely spacious and nicely decorated with a festive ambiance. The location is fantastic in a lovely wooded area not far from both SF and the Pacific Ocean. The hostess, Marcia, was very communicative about expectations, my arrival, what I might need to be sure to pack for a stay in the area, and amenities nearby I might need. I felt very welcomed, not like a stranger on the property. Although, we never crossed paths. The EcoNest room has a separate entry and only shares a wall with the main house, so privacy was perfect.

Response from Marcia:
Hi Maggie. Oh dear, I saw your dialogue with the weirdo hostess and also read all the other VERY POSITIVE REVIEWS that people shared about you. I figured (quite correctly) that you were a respectful, communicative guest and was happy to welcome you. When we started our communications, I was sure I made the correct choice. Thank you again for this lovely review. Please come back anytime. PS -- I also had one weirdo guest and shut down the NEST for several months. I'm glad we both decided to give airbnb another try. All the best. Happy trails and majolica glazing! Marcia
