Stay in an historic bank building converted into a residence in rural Tomales, centrally located to Pt. Reyes National Seashore, Tomales Bay and the Pacific Ocean. Perfect for hiking, biking, kayaking, and a relaxing get-a-way.

The space

This unique B&B is a 2-story artist's residence in a converted bank building, located in the sleepy, west Marin town of Tomales. Tomales is surrounded by open hills and agriculture, much of it protected into perpetuity by Marin Agricultural Land Trust.

This vacation spot is a short hop from the Napa and Sonoma wine valleys, historic Bodega Bay where Alfred Hitchcock filmed “The Birds,” beaches, redwoods, bicycling, kayaking and much more. Relax with modern comforts. Sleep in a quiet luxury loft. Feel safe and secure at Not-A-Bank!

Has to be one of the most creative residences that I have stayed at. The converted bank feel was great. Good location to access hikes and beaches. He had guitars, piano and other great amenities. A memorable stay.

Awesome place with musical instruments, a turntable and lots of space for a party or an event. The bank setting is very unique. We truly enjoyed staying at the not-a-bank and are hoping to be back some time.

Not-A-Bank is SUBLIME!! The space is incredibly stylish, and every detail feels thoughtful, hip, and loved. We had an absolutely wonderful trip, and spent lots of time playing piano, listening to old Bowie records, and taking in the ambiance of a truly creatively redesigned vintage bank. Bert was a superb host, respondable and kind and helpful, and we couldn't recommend Not-A-Bank more enthusiastically if we tried! This place is a real gem...thanks, Bert! :D

What a unique property at an interesting crossroads in West Marin! Great place to escape from the bustle of everyday life wherever you're coming from. Very well furnished and equipped. Enjoyed the musical touches including turntable and cool albums and playing one of the guitars. And very much appreciate the clear and personal communications from Bert. Thanks!

The Not-A-Bank was the most unique and coolest airbnb I have ever stayed in. If you are travelling near Tomales California, and you happen to be lucky enough to find this open, definitely take adventage of staying in such an incredible home. Bert was great and very communicative, and I can't recommend this place enough.
