Thank you for sharing this beautiful place. We forgot our usual lives and enjoyed this comfortable place right down to the music and books. The views of the hills and bay are perfect. This is a great place to escape with friends.”

“This is an extraordinary home with superb energy. We look forward to returning!”

We had a wonderful three days here. The views are fantastic and the house is beautiful. Perfect house for kids, adults and people of all age groups. Thank you for making our stay so beautiful. We hope to return in the near future.”

Thanks for sharing this wonderful house with us! We loved the view and the interior of the house. Everything was taken care of for the house–the plants, the furniture, and the interior. We had a fantastic two days here and we were glad to spend them in this house. Oh, and we loved the hot tub! Thanks again!”

“We had a terrific 10 days here relaxing, enjoying the view, playing games and playing in the hot tub. This is a fantastic house with everything you could possibly want or need. I also enjoyed the book collection and read up on California geology. Future occupants: we highly recommend the drive out Pierce Point Rd. to do the hike to McClure’s Beach. Walk to the end of the beach and you’ll find a narrow passage to another beach. A lovely family vacation.”

“Beautiful house–beautiful view–great hiking. We had a wonderful three days here. Thanks so much.”

“The house was great! This place has a wonderful view and it’s well hidden! The chess set was a nice touch to the house. I love this house so much I hope to come back soon!

“The house was wonderful. Really enjoyed the weather (something we don’t have in Arizona)! This place has something for everyone, from beaches, the mountains and the trees–only wish we could’ve stayed a bit longer.”

“What a wonderful week enjoying the views and amenities at Frank’s Place! So glad we found this peaceful hilltop oasis to share with our family and friends. We look forward to a return visit in the future.”

“Wow the view was awesome. We enjoyed playing with the plants and making things for our dolls and painting beautiful paintings of the hills. It was so fun staying in this beautiful house. We hope you enjoyed us. I hope that me and my family come back sometime soon.” (Guests ages 2, 6 and 8).

“We were so grateful to spend these days among the rhododendrons, misty mornings, birds and breezes…We have been much inspired by the books and natural history guides…found many wildflowers from the pages on our daily hikes. Frank and Virginia make us want to live fuller lives. Thank you.”

“We had our close friends and family to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. This is a wonderful friendly place for this celebration. This was a surprise from our kids, and what a wonderful surprise. Thank you for allowing others to share this place.”

“Best bachelorette location in the Bay Area! Room to eat, play, relax and celebrate. Thank you for sending our blushing bride off with such style!”

I’m transformed each time we come here. Thank you Scott for your continued attention to detail and comfort. We’ll be back.”

“We have had a wonderful time here for the Memorial Day weekend. The house is very homey and comfortable for our two families. The hot tub is a big hit for the kids. The weather is just perfect. We did several long hikes, and spent time on the beach. The hosts Kitsy and Douglas are very warm, welcoming and extremely helpful. They made our stay so much more enjoyable! We all love the beautiful garden. Thank you for the wonderful time!

“Fantastic house! This place is all we could ask for. Came for a weekend getaway to do some hiking and kayaking. Point Reyes is beautiful and we will be coming back again in a few years, hopefully staying at Frank’s Place.

“What a wonderful house! We thoroughly enjoyed the view, the rhododendron garden and all the amenities. We had a great time. Thank you so much!

“This is our second visit but won’t be our last. We love Point Reyes and this is the perfect house for a longish visit. We had several really great hikes: out the door to Inverness Ridge; Bayview Trail then up Drake’s View Trail; out to Tomales Point through the Tule Elk reserve; Chimney Rock and the Lighthouse; from Bear Valley to Mt. Wittenberg to Sky Camp to Bay View trailhead to Inverness Ridge and back ‘home’. Yesterday we explored the fire roads from the town of Inverness up to Mount Vision Road and back down a second fire trail. This is just an amazing area. Today our last day it is raining with heavy fog, but still just beautiful! Thank you Scott, and Kitsy for the great flowers and comfort.”

“Thank you for your gracious hospitality. We especially appreciated the fresh wildflowers and the fire already laid and just waiting for a match. What a stunning place God has prepared for you Californians–California is a beautiful, diverse state. We especially enjoyed the two gray foxes who visited one morning. And the hot tub was awesome.”

“Thank you for this very special home to celebrate a beautiful Valentine’s weekend. Everything about the setting is spectacular–the views from every angle, the comfort, the openness to the outdoors but the warmth of the fireplace and hot tub…”

“We had a terrific time here. It has been foggy and rainy the entire time but we still were able to get out and hike some lovely trails. We had family and friends for several days and this is such a friendly place. We played games and talked, reconnecting across three generations. Thanks so much.”

“What a great place to hang out. Beautiful in sun, rain, fog, whatever the weather throws at you. Great place for walking, watching the fire, cooking, playing games, reading. I felt right at home, my kind of music, books. Great hot tub and views from!”

“Happy to be part of this beautiful weekend in a wonderful home. Setting and amenities couldn’t be nicer. Thank you for a perfect respite from city living. The views are amazing, the sounds and smells during and after a soft rain are wonderful. I love how the sun wakes you up in the morning–thanks so much!”
