Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Lovely house! We enjoyed the deck during the day and the fire pit in the evening.
    Gorgeous views of the hills and stars at night. We also thought it would be the perfect location/scenery for an intimate wedding. It is that beautiful! 5 minute walk (with sidewalks) into town. We would love to go back!

  • We loved Penny's house and felt instantly at home and comfortable. The home was clean and had high quality details that made us wish our trip was longer. We found ourselves wanting to go back to just hang out in a very relaxed and serene environment. Thank you Penny!

  • Penny's Lavender House was a fabulous home-away-from-home. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience in this beautiful space. The location, in tiny Tomales, is a quick drive to the stunning coast line, beaches, quirky villages and simply in the middle of lovely rolling hills. The quiet was only interrupted by the soft "moo's" of neighboring cows grazing nearby.

    The home was comfortably cozy and very clean with contemporary amenities. With such a fantastic kitchen, we chose to cook most of our own meals and relax at the house in the evenings. We will hopefully return, my in-laws are already requesting a trip there for the next time they visit California!

  • I rented this house for my daughter and I, for a short vacation out of the city. We had a fabulous time. The house is very cleaned and beautiful, inside and outside, with a wonderful view on the rolling hills. I am a cook and I enjoy the full kitchen. It's in a great location a walk to the bakery and store. I will recommend it to everyone I know and I will go back again and again!

  • This is a lovely house in a convenient and beautiful location. We arrived late Friday night, but had no problem getting in per Penny's instructions. Saturday morning we walked down to the bakery in town (just a few min. walk), went hiking along Tomales Point, visited the Marshall Store for oysters, and Nick's Cove for dinner -- all an easy drive away. The house is comfortable, clean, and spacious. I wish we had a few more days to enjoy it and I will definitely go back. I highly recommend staying here.
