Calif. wildflowers & quail surround this carefully designed 400 sq.ft. studio cottage with tiled, well-stocked kitchen, one queen bed, CA.bay flooring, large bathroom, clawfoot tub with shower, private parking and garden, 1/3 mile from Agate Beach, set in 1.5 acre native plant garden.

Le logement
Enjoy the north-central coast of California at the Quail House in Bolinas, an aesthetically pleasing, immaculately clean, and comfortable retreat for singles, couples, or couples with a child under 5 or 6. There is much attention to detail throughout this private, separate building with its own parking place and entrance to the property. Located within a famous one and a half acre demonstration garden of coastal native plants, in the incomparable "hippie-chic" (as one visitor called it) town of Bolinas, one hour but a world away from San Francisco. Here at the southern end of the Pt Reyes National Seashore, 150 miles of hiking trails await you.

The cottage is an entirely self-contained 400 sq. ft (20'x20') unit that includes a full kitchen and spacious bathroom, with its own parking space, visited only by you and the quail. In the surrounding garden, we grow some of the many threatened native California wildflowers, for seed-collection and for the seasonal enjoyment of our guests and us.

The cottage is one large room, with a completely equipped new kitchen area, including apartment sized refrigerator, butcher block and tiled counters, and a new gas stove. The style is "California bungalow." Guests often remark on the furniture. The sound of the ocean, 1/3 of a mile away, will rock you to sleep.

Please note that we have a three-night minimum Friday thru Sunday. Please discuss with us if you wish to bring a child with you, so we can ensure time to "baby proof" the cottage.

You will enjoy a new and comfortable queen size bed with organic sheets and down comforters, a reclining 2-person loveseat, and a spacious bathroom with a clawfoot bathtub and on-demand unlimited hot water for long, luxurious baths or showers after hiking. Fine bath products are available for your use.
We provide Peets or other high quality caffeinated coffee, and a wide selection of teas. We stock staples like olive oil and Balsamic and other vinegars and seasonings, and fine dutch cocoa for hot chocolate.When available, we share fresh eggs from our neighbor's backyard hens. Books on the area are supplied, including three books written by your host, partly about the development of this garden, and published by University of California Press.

Organic, local, salvaged, and re-purposed materials were used whenever possible in the construction of the cottage. The floor and shelving is made of locally-milled California bay laurel. Tile from the Sausalito Heath Tile Factory ornaments the kitchen, with a built-in butcher block counter. The high ceiling and many windows add to the pleasantness of the dappled sunlight changing throughout the day. A large coast live oak surrounds the cottage, providing roosting spaces for our local quail covey and a scenic backdrop for the cottage.

Coffeeberry, coyote bush, redwoods, and many native wildflowers and bunchgrasses, surround the cottage. The garden has been designed with the needs of California quail in mind, and their sweet and varied calls can be heard throughout the day. This is why no pets are allowed. Sorry, no exceptions.

The Quail House is perfect for writers, with a spacious wooden dining table to spread out at, and a small private desk area as well.

Your neighbors are an eclectic assortment of local fishermen, surfboard shapers, woodworkers, one publisher, and several ceramicists. Your host is the proprietor of Larner Seeds, dedicated specialists in California native plants, so plant and bird lovers will find a lot to learn and enjoy on-site as well as in the vicinity.

Nearby Agate Beach is a 1/3 mile walk away, and includes Duxbury Point, a famous Marine Sanctuary for tidepooling and beach walking. It's a rocky beach, so if you prefer a sand beach, go downtown to Brighton Beach, or make the trek to Stinson Beach, 15 minutes south on Hwy One.

This town is a unique enclave of dedicated artists, writers, naturalists, and rugged individualists. If you choose, you can be busy all the time, with the many local events taking place in our lively community. The Hearsay News, available downtown at both grocery stores, lists all events.

A minimum stay of 3 nights is required, with a cleaning fee of $75.00 and a security deposit of $500.00. A required Transient Occupancy Tax of 10%, added to the nightly price of $190.00, is collected by Airbnb to help pay for the fact that over 50% of Marin County, the unincorporated West Marin, is parks and open space for your enjoyment. Cancellations require one week in advance. Singles, couples, and families with one child under 5 can be accommodated.

Public transportation is provided by West Marin Stagecoach.

Downtown Bolinas is one of the sweetest downtowns in the world (in our opinion). Though we have only (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) people in Bolinas, downtown you will find a restaurant, two markets, the library, the post office, several shops, a saloon, a sandy beach, a second-hand store, and an excellent regional museum. A downtown like this is a real center for the community, Explore!

Check out the events and classes at the Bolinas Community Center as well. Here are many interesting cultural events, and some of our visitors have thrown themselves with gusto into local events and classes. One couple planned their visit around a talk at the New School at Commonweal. You can go to their website and register. These talks are usually free. They've had most recently Michael Pollan.

The local saloon, Smiley's, is the oldest continuously operating saloon in California, providing a continuous array of a wide variety of musicians, both local and not.

There are two markets in town, one, The Bolnas Peoples Store, a natural foods store and the other, The Bolinas Market, providing local meats, seafood, and poultry. We also have a great restaurant offering local produce and seafood, the Coast Cafe, as well as Eleven, which has a small, delicious, ever changing menu. We suggest reservations on weekends. The brunch at the Coast Cafe is highly recommended. Indoor and outdoor seating.

The Bolinas Museum has top-quality exhibits and a fascinating and informative History Room. Musical events and exhibit openings often take place in its courtyard.

On Fridays, Star Route Farms, the oldest organic farm in the state, sells directly to the public as well. We also have a unique used bookstore, Michael's, where you can stock up on used books for $1.to $2 apiece! It is next to the Post Office on Brighton Road. Our local surf shop around the corner provides lessons and surfing supplies.

Located at the southern end of the Pt Reyes National Seashore, we have access to 150 miles of trails. Nearby is the Pt Reyes Bird Observatory, a must-see, as well as Commonweal, a well-known retreat center sponsoring an impressive array of NGOs and with a lecture series packed with interesting speakers.

A favorite trail begins at Palomarin parking lot at the end of Mesa Road, with access to Bass Lake, a favored summer swimming spot, Alamere Falls, and Pelican Lake. For the intrepid hiker looking for a challenge, these trails can be taken all the way into the northern part of Pt Reyes National Seashore. There are hikes of all lengths and difficulty. We are glad to advise you.

Only an hour's drive from San Francisco, we are surrounded by national and state parks and county open space. Mt. Tamalpais State Park, with its gorgeous views, the summer Mountain Play, and an astounding number of different ecosystems, is accessed just across Hwy One on the Bolinas-Fairfax Road and includes redwoods, serpentine, grasslands, and chaparral, with numerous beautiful trails available. Hikers will never run out of hikes around here, and surfers will be happy as well.

We are 10 minutes north of Stinson Beach and about half an hour from the renowned Muir Woods, where mighty redwoods can be viewed, a good stop along the way, with a great cafe and bookstore as well.

We love our area and enjoy sharing it. We can advise on hikes and restaurants or leave you to your own adventures.

Our neighborhood is quiet, friendly, full of interesting people. A fine ceramicist specializing in porcelain lives across the street and is glad to show her work. Two fishermen live on the block as well as a famous surfboard shaper. Across the way is a well-known artist and en plein air painter, who also has a gallery downtown.

Judith has been the proprietor of Larner Seeds, specialists in California native plants and seeds, for the last 35 years. She designed the Quail House to be in a private part of our Demonstration Garden of all California native plants, part of an opportunity to give people the experience of living comfortably in a "habitat restoration garden." She lives on the property with her husband Peter, both fervent explorers of California's many beautiful places. They welcome to their place others who are similarly engaged. She is happy to interact with you, or not, depending on your wishes. A desire for total privacy is easily accommodated, yet they are nearby if needed. Airbnb requested the naming of five things she can't live without: quiet, the ocean, California wildflowers and native flora, this beloved small town, with the best downtown in the US, and a constant supply of interesting books. One more thing - our raspberry patch in May. We are committed to being helpful and sensitive hosts, and will follow your lead as to how much or how little interaction and/or help you want. It varies widely. Judith and Peter find are continually amazed by the interesting and delightful people they've met through hosting the Quail House on Airbnb.

Pendant votre séjour
As far as interactions with guests go, we follow your lead. We do like to orient guests to the location as well as: how the heater works, (very easy) how the couch reclines, which direction is Agate Beach - and to answer any other questions.
If we don't connect, we have left detailed instructions in the folder marked "Welcome to the Quail House." Because of my work with native plants in areas all over California, we are sometimes out of town during guest stays, but we are always available by phone.
The Larner Seeds Staff is here in the Larner Seeds Office 3 days a week, (Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday) and are gone working in the field the rest of the time. Feel free to check out the Larner Seeds Office, well-stocked with California seeds, and related books and tools.
