bon appetit magazines, may 2012 issue, has me totally mesmerized by this bedroom hovering over the water.

in the article “pack your knives and go” the writer describes her culinary adventures in point reyes, california, and tells us “the best way to get to know a destination? rent (or swap) a house with a killer kitchen and let the markets be your guide to adventure”

i love the idea of a “rent to eat vacation”, and having access to beautiful homes just like this anywhere in the world. and what better way to experience a new place, than living as the locals do?

below is the gorgeous view from the deck…and some of the dishes they made during their stay. check out the recipes!
