Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The Tennis House is a wonderful place to relax and visit beautiful Point Reyes. The house is equipped with everything that's needed for a care-free vacation. It's absolutely perfect for families with children. Kids will have a great time in the large back yard with a tennis court, bocce ball, and a castle. The communication with Jim was perfect and we would love to visit again!

  • The Tennis House provides a wonderful, tranquil retreat. All of the amenities, from the well-stocked kitchen to the outdoor bath/shower to the pellet stove to the tennis court were perfect. The property is beautifully landscaped and has a fantastic view of the mountains/hills. It's an easy walk into Pt. Reyes Station and a short drive or bike ride to the National Seashore.

  • Amazing stay at the Tennis House. The house is perfect for a weekend getaway with a few friends. Fully enjoyed playing tennis and bocce ball during the day, and it's only a short 15 min walk to the town of Point Reyes. Will definitely be back.

  • Point Reyes is our very favorite place and we have been looking for the perfect place to stay. We found it this past weekend.
    The Tennis House is spacious enough to accommodate the four of us very comfortably, and also allowed us to cook some of our own meals. The views are wonderfully comforting and the patio makes for bringing us into the delicious outdoors for lunch and/or breakfast.
    Jim was always quickly responsive to any inquiries. He made it all so easy. Will definitely go back, repeatedly.

  • Lovely stay. The Tennis House was immaculate, well equipped, and located within walking distance of Pt.Reyes Station. The garden was lovely, with raised vegetable beds, and a friendly horse in the pasture across the very quiet street. Bed very comfy. Great books, too! Peaceful.

  • Found the house and host at the Tennis House to be great! Always worry (in coastal fog country) about warmth and musty air... Both are no problem with a great automated pellet stove and room electric heaters. Kitchen was well stocked with all kinds of pans, bowls, glasses, utensils... you name it, and many common spices, oils, and general supplies. Jim was friendly and helpful, and location nice and quiet. Would definitely come back.

  • We had a lovely time at Point Reyes staying at the tennis house. The place is spotless and cozy. I loved lying on the couch and seeing the stars at night; walking to the bakery in the morning and whapping a few tennis balls around. Jim and Ann were gracious, flexible and accommodating . We are eager to return.

  • We spent a wonderful MLK week-end at the tennis house. The weather was gorgeous, and when we arrived, the house was basking into the sun. We enjoyed playing tennis and bocce ball. The kids had a blast running around in the garden, playing in the castle, while the adults enjoyed a beer al fresco. We barbecued twice, slept beautifully in this very quiet little town. Breakfast from Bovine bakery, oysters from Drakes oyster farm, cheese from the Cowgirl creamery, everything was delicious. We also really appreciated all the attention to details that Jim has put in his house. Everything was pristine, we got all the info we needed to do some hikes to the nearby beaches from the brochures Jim left for us. Our only regret was to not get a chance to meet Jim in person, as he was away for the week-end. Next time!

  • Had a great time at the Patterson's Tennis House in Point Reyes Station, CA. Nice place and helpful, friendly owners.
    The local restaurants and small grocery store is expensive as you'd expect...so it's a good idea to pack in what you want to eat if you are on a budget.

    Neat little town. The trip to the lighthouse takes a while. haha

  • Jim responded quickly, was clear in his communication, and accommodating. The cottage has two bedrooms, a living room and kitchen, it has plenty of space for two couples. The cottage was situated in the countryside, clean, sunny and warm. Everything you need is provided. There are two bedrooms, good sized bathroom, a full size fridge, kitchen with everything. Loved the town of Point Reyes, hikes around Pt. Reyes and Drakes Bay. A great area for long distance cycling. This is a lovely get away destination. I recommend the Tennis House!
