Travel fantasy: Poet's loft

When Abbey found this amazing California rental house, my jaw dropped. The house is near Point Reyes, where you could hike to the lighthouse and eat fresh cheese. And it has a hot tub. Damn. Wouldn't you love to stay there?

I love Point Reyes - it would be amazing to stay at this place!

Anna-Lisa said...

I was just there a few months ago! Just make sure you go when it's not totally overcast and dreary. But then again, a cold day with a hot tub is fun!

LAURA!!! said...

ChloƩ said...

It looks glorious! Love the HUGE windows, the floor, the gorgeous view....everything!

Becca said...

Joanna Goddard said...

that's a good point, anna-lisa. you'd definitely want sunshine. it stormed when we were in santorini on our honeymoon and we sat in the hot tub in the rain! still fun, but kind of ridiculous :)

Mary said...

Yes please!

JenLynn said...

The view is spectacular. I could curl up on the sofa and read for hours in such a peaceful surrounding.

Aw man, I was just there! But instead of staying in this awesome rental home, I slept in a tent on the beach and froze! It was still awesome though.

Pretty Little World said...

That house is gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!

However, being a poet, and knowing a lot of other poets, I'm not sure how long any of us could afford to rent that for, lol.

amy anne said...

A lighthouse and fresh cheese! Sounds like heaven.

chellemorgan said...

Joanna, have you ever tried Point Reyes blue cheese?

O.M.G. So good. So, so good. Another reason this place would be worth visiting in a heartbeat!

Astoria Girl said...

Wow that looks beautiful! Thanks for sharing this picture as it is such a dreary day in ny. I'll have to remember that location for our next vacation!

Giulia said...

It's pretty but I can say, as a poet, wow, most of us do not have the bucks for it. I'm much more a fan of that particular coast & a more rustic place. But if you force the issue, I guess I could sacrifice:)

kid. said...

oh gosh, i would do almost anything to stay just one night in that place.

Stephanie said...

Point Rayes is amazing and the nature is just overwhelming in a good way. I went there on a class trip when I was 8 to do a nature walk, and I decided then and there I never wanted to leave.

We stayed here for a couple of nights on our honeymoon! The view was unreal and location was great, but the house itself was pretty filthy (the linens hadn't been washed and the couch slipcovers were really dirty) and outdated (the hot tub is more yucky than romantic). Kind of a bummer ;(

Fist of all, LOVE Marshall, CA. I love that link to the Poet's Loft. Just put it on the list. Will definitely stay there at some point. Love these picks too. I have always done well with airbnb. Also used homecarers.com once to housesit in a villa in Mexico. Fun.
If anyone has stayed in any 1 bedrooms that they loved in Hollywood, Los Feliz, Mid-Wilshire, WeHo- would love a recommendation!
Best,
Kelly
