    Holiday Rental House – 
    4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8
    There's simply no other place like this in all of West Marin: beautifully renovated 150+ year old farmhouse, on 160 certified organic acres, on the shores of Tomales Bay ... serene, peaceful, yet only 1 hour from San Francisco.

    What’s truly spectacular, besides our charming house, is the setting: a romantic garden, two porches (upper and lower) overlooking the historic red-painted barns, the rolling pastures and Tomales Bay, all at once. You can even walk from the house to a small beach for tide pooling or to launch your kayak.

    It's a perfect location / home base for kayaking, hiking, artisan cheese & organic food exploring, family gatherings, getaways with your partner and/or friends, even off-site meetings.

    Our house accommodates 8 (total, adults and kids). On special r...

The Straus Home Ranch is located in a beautiful pastoral setting with lovely views of Tomales Bay. My husband and I vacationed there along with 3 other couples. The home is cozy and the beds are very comfortable. It is well stocked with a large kitchen, BBQ, games, books and a fabulous grand piano in the living room. My friends...

My husband and I traveled with 3 other couples to the Straus Home Ranch for Labor Day weekend. From the moment we arrived we knew we were in for something very special. The house has been beautifully and comfortably done and felt very spacious - even for 8 adults. Everything about it felt homey yet there has been no skimping... more

Management response:

Valri, it was so great to have you, Bob, and the whole group. We're thrilled the piano was used so well and by such talent too. Hope to see you soon again. more

The house is beautiful, the scenery around it spectacular, and the surrounding area is second-to-none nationwide. If you're looking for a place to kick back and relax in West Marin, this is the spot. The home is historic, but don't conjure up images of worn down and funky. In truth, the furnishings are modern and well appointed, the beds are... more

Glad you had a relaxing vacation, and hope to see you again soon! / Michael Straus more
