About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Spend your vacation on a former dairy farm, three blocks from the historic and charming town center of Point Reyes Station - just minutes away from the magnificent Point Reyes National Seashore.

The fifty-year-old ranch house has been updated and beautifully furnished. The large country kitchen is perfect for people who like to cook together and contains everything necessary for utilizing the wonderful array of locally grown culinary products available in town. Two large living rooms provide space and privacy for two families to share the house. The four bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. One has a king size bed, one has two doubles, one has a queen and a day bed, and one has two twin beds. A large enclosed patio contains a complete kitchen with a built-in barbeque and a newly renovated swimming pool and half bath. A fully equipped laundry room is also provided.

The Point Reyes area offers excellent opportunities for hiking, horseback riding, kayaking, boating, wine tasting, dining and simply enjoying the breathtaking scenery. We are located 40 miles north of San Francisco and about 40 miles away from the Napa/Sonoma wine country. Call or e-mail for more information - ask for Jeanette or Dana

About Jeanette Giacomini or Dana Valconesi

My three brothers and I grew up in this ranch house which was built by our parents in 1950. The house was part of a working dairy until 2007. The ranch pasture lands have been purchased by the federal government and are being restored to wetlands as part of the Point Reyes National Seashore.

After the death of our parents we decided to convert the house to a vacation rental so that we could afford to maintain it and continue to have access to it for family members. Profits from the rental are used to fund scholarships for local high students.

Jeanette Giacomini or Dana Valconesi purchased this house in 1950

What makes this house unique

The house is within walking distance to the center of the village of Point Reyes Station and yet is secluded enough to provide the peace and quiet necessary for a relaxing getaway. The area offers spectacular scenery and many opportunities for outdoor activities.

Ten stars!

  • 5 of 5

Where do I begin? This place was perfect in every way. We have a large family & wanted a place to get together after a memorial service for my dad. Six of us stayed there but on Saturday there were 24 people. Lots of room to spread out. Games galore. Swimming pool. Ping pong. Corn hole. Huge picnic tables at poolside. Kitchen stocked with everything, even a good assortment of spices. Lots of parking. A block or two from town but still in the country. About 11 miles to the beach. Walking trails behind the house. Oh and did I mention a basketball goal? It reminded us of the get togethers we used to have at grandmothers house. The owner(s), Dana & Jeanette, were always available but never seen. I think everyone will have fond memories of our time spent at Waldo’s. Thank you, Jeanette & Dana!

The Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My Husband, children and grandchildren and I had the pleasure of being in The Point Reyes Station area for a family wedding. While researching where to stay I chose Waldo House because I knew my grandchildren would enjoy the pool. I have to say it is the best decision I could have made. From day one the communication with a Jeanette and Dana was prompt, friendly and informative. When we arrived everything was ready for us. Everything in the house was fully stocked and ready to go. The home was comfortable and relaxing. We woke every morning and had coffee on the patio surrounded by nature! We had a mother deer and two fawns who frequented the area, monarch butterflies everywhere, hummingbirds flittering by, and even saw (but luckily didn’t smell) a bushy little skunk walking across the driveway! This place was one where our family made memories we won’t forget! Do yourself a favor, look no further and stay here!

Best of both Worlds

  • 5 of 5

You are 2 min. walk to town, which is wonderful place full of great restaurants and

anything you could want. Sleepy and friendly. The house is enormous but feels

intimate. The way they have attended to detail and have everything you need is

wonderful. Pool and patio, ping pong, basketball are fabulous. As peaceful and

beautiful a setting as I have ever seen. You are in the wilderness. Jeannette and

Dana are just wonderful people. I've stayed before and hope to again.

Amazing Memorial Day Weekend with Friends

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with a group over Memorial Day, and we had an absolute blast. The home is even bigger than can be shown via photos, everything worked great, and there was more than enough activities to occupy us during our stay. The kitchen is fully stocked so we were able to cook full meals for ten when we wanted to, and the huge covered area outside of the main house kept us busy with the pool, corn hole, and a variety of other fun and games. Will definitely be looking to come back if possible!

Perfect place for our family get together

  • 5 of 5

We came to Point Reyes Station for a family wedding. This home was perfect for our needs (two families with a range of kids ages from 7 to 20). Pictures of the pool area don't do it justice! The kids had such a good time playing in the pool, ping pong (although fresh balls are needed :-)), bag toss, etc. Thanks for having our family stay at your perfectly located home!
