We loved the tennis house! The inside is fine, just a nice little cottage, but the outside and location are both amazing.
First, it has a massive yard, with a fake pirate ship at the back for kids to play on, which is awesome. The decor is great, there are a bunch of picnic tables, cute lighting for evening, a barbecue, etc.
There's a bocce court, which we love playing. One of the first times my wife an I hung out we played bocce, so that was a big plus.
Then there's the really nice tennis court. It has tons of rackets, hundreds of balls, even a ball machine. I thoroughly enjoyed this. I just took a bunch of baskets of balls and smashed them, and my wife and I hit balls at each other as well. If I'd found the ball machine earlier, I probably would have used that all day.
Finally, the location is wonderful. It's a short stroll into the center of the cute town of Point Reyes Station.
Anyway, great spot for a relaxing and/or sporty time.
The house was comfortable and had a well stocked kitchen. There is a great game cabinet available. The outside spaces are comfortable and cozy. I loved sitting in the sun and relaxing on the deck. The bed was super comfortable and I slept wonderfully! Jim and his wife live next door and are very available and friendly.
Checking in was made very easy for us and we found the place exactly as described. The holiday lights were festive and the location was perfect. The kitchen was well-stocked and the furnishings charming. We loved the lit Christmas tree which made it feel like home. While there is only one bath, it is quite spacious and easily shared. A lovely time was had by all. We will definitely plan another visit to the Tennis House as soon as we can!
We had a wonderful time at the Tennis House. We cooked in the small but very functional kitchen, ate in the delightfully cozy dining area, relaxed in front of the amazingly warm pellet stove, played tennis on the gorgeous court, and generally enjoyed ourselves and our surroundings. Jim was a responsive and friendly host who made sure we had everything we needed. We'd love to come back.
Hi! We had a lovely time at the Point Reyes Tennis House. Jim and his wife were welcoming hosts, complete with beautiful twinkling lights around the house and pellet stove for warmth. Despite the rainy weather, we stayed cosy and had a great time tho we couldn't try out the tennis court. Kitchen was well-stocked with spices and what was needed for cooking. The three of us are over 70, and the walk to town is a bit longer than we were expecting, but quite short by car and not a problem. The house is in a quiet setting, which is what we wanted.
Jim and Ann's place was a great place to spend a few days. We were able to buy meat at the butcher shop in town near by and have a delicious meal in their home thanks to a well laid out kitchen. We could have used the barbecue or eaten outside on their large patio, but we got busy with a party at a friend's place in Nicasio. There was a nice automatic pellet fire stove burning in the living room which made it all very cozy. The living space was large and very comfortable for the four of us. Jim was great in getting back to us with answers to any questions that we had. There were outside activities such as bocce ball and a nice tennis court which would have been fun if we had had the time. We had some nice conversations with Jim and Ann which added to the welcoming feeling of their wonderful house. We are hoping to return again and would recommend it to anyone wishing for a comfortable, friendly place to stay in the beautiful Point Reyes area.
This was our 3rd time staying here and we will definitely be back again. It's our favorite place to stay in Point Reyes Station. Five stars, highly recommended! Great location, comfortable space, friendly host.
