Very welcoming and pleasant home in a beautiful part of California. The yard with the tennis and bocce courts were fun as well. Definitely recommend.
Our family of 3 went to Point Reyes Station for a quiet week end off. We loved our stay at the Tennis House . We had a great time and our little one enjoyed talking to Jim and his lovely wife. She discovered Tennis and she really liked it. The house itself is very confortable , very nice beds, kitchen is well furnished, Bathroom is simple but has everything you need. We will come back.
We felt at home as soon as we drove up in mid-April and parked our car! We walked around the beautiful garden and tennis court. My wife couldn't stop smelling the roses growing all over. Jim greeted us warmly and suggested a few places to go for dinner. He and Ann were both so welcoming to their home! They live in a smaller cottage adjacent to the tennis house.
The area around was so peaceful. A small walk to the main town streets keeps the tennis house distraction-free. It's also the *perfect* location if you're going oyster-shucking and checking out the Point Reyes lighthouse. It's very central to all the spots. The internet connection was great too, I can see myself renting this for a few days to host a work retreat too! The only thing that might affect some people (It was perfectly fine for us), is that the shower might be a bit small if you're a very large person.
We feel like we've found a jewel in the Point Reyes Tennis House, and can't wait to come back! This time, with tennis rackets!
This was a great place to stay. The house is beautiful and comfortable, and Jim made us feel right at home. I'm not a tennis player, but if you are, this is definitely the place for you. But even if you aren't, it's a lovely, quiet place to stay within easy walking distance of Point Reyes Station.
What a wonderful way to spend a weekend in Pt Reyes Station. The house was lovely. Very sunny, cozy, and quiet. Beautiful views of mountains in the back and horse grazing in the front. We enjoyed the heater at night and made use of the DVD player. The patio area was lovely, too, though we didn't make use of it this weekend and instead walked into town for dinner. We met Jim on the last day as we were leaving and he was also very kind and helpful. I'd definitely stay here again as a nice way to relax for a few days.
Jim is a wonderful host, and the house is the perfect place to relax and enjoy Point Reyes. Great location, and a FANTASTIC back yard that is perfect for kids used to tiny postage-stamp yards in San Francisco.
Grandparents Jim and Ann (see picture) are both retired educators who have lived in Point Reyes Station since 1972.

Together they built the Tennis House in 1975 and added the tennis court in 1987.
