A gorgeous estate located on Paradise Ridge, adjacent to the national park, with one of the most beautiful views in all of West Marin. We are adjacent to Point Reyes National Preserve and Seashore, on top of Paradise Ridge, with views of the ocean, farallon islands and treetops from every direction. The estate is a permaculture paradise, with abundant vegetable gardens, flowers and fruit trees. Guests have their own private garden which has garden veggies and fruit trees, a koi pond, bbq, picnic table, bench swing, lawn games and hammock. Guests are welcome to sample seasonal greens, herbs, berries, and fruits growing in the inner garden. Eden's Lair is the top floor of the estate and has two bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, study, kitchen, a large entertainment room, and large private balcony. There is an additional bed next to the kitchen and dining area. The bedrooms have their own unique design with gorgeous ocean views. One of the bedrooms is semi private, you must walk through it to reach the large entertainment room. Guests are welcome to stroll around the extensive terraced outer garden with more fruit trees and flowers and seating nooks. The property has panoramic views of Point Reyes National Seashore.
You have the top floor of the property (0ver 3000 square feet with some of the best views in West Marin!) Explore the acres of terraced gardens, bird watch from a hidden hammock, or enjoy the tree swing. Have a meal in the inner garden with bbq, picnic table, and koi pond. Help yourself to whats in season from the organic garden and the fruit trees. There is a playhouse for children in the terraced gardens, and a trampoline. You are a minute walk from the trailheads leading to Mt Vision and Limantour Beach.
The bottom floor has been sealed off from the top rented unit. When the hosts are at the location, we reside on the side wing of the estate which is not directly underneath the top floor. Absolutely no one else will be renting a part of the estate during your stay.
Other dwellings that contribute to the functionality of the property and grounds of the estate ( pump house, well house, etc) have no guest access.
We will be here to welcome you and give you a tour upon your arrival, or will provide details for a self check in. Usually we don't see guests after the initial greeting, as we are either in a separate wing on the estate with a separate driveway and entrance. But we enjoy crossing paths with guests when it happens and are very happy to interact with guests and get talking about the Point Reyes/west marin area, native plants, organic gardening, the pursuit of happiness.... we will leave it up to you! We are available by text if there are questions.
We welcome all humans!
We are on the top of Inverness Ridge, also called Paradise Ridge, looking out over Pt Reyes national seashore at a 1400ft elevation from the sea. We have a steep driveway, but you can choose to park at the bottom and walk up if you prefer.
This property has a unique layout, people call it the Winchester House. It begins in the large entertainment room and funnels through a bedroom, a study, a door to nowhere, a path to a balcony, then continues to reveal more rooms and vantage points for beautiful ocean views
In other words, this property is not for the travelers who want a conventional layout.
