About Rollin Bruce

Hello,

I'm Rollin. I will be your host, contact person, & repairman if necessary.

I own 'The Red House' on Stinson Beach along with my lovely wife (The Queen) and brother in law (Big Guy). Our family has owned the home since the 60's. The Red House has been offered as a vacation rental for more than 20 years. I have been the manager since April of 2005 and years later continue to enjoy doing so.

Rollin Bruce purchased this house in 1964

Why Rollin Bruce chose Stinson Beach

While my wife and her brother grew up here, I had been coming to Stinson Beach all of my life.

As a Real Estate Broker it was a no brainer to buy into a house on the beach. Vacation rentals are so much more fun than other investments. Even when I go out to the beach to bring supplies or fix something, there's the scenic drive, the first views of the Bolinas Lagoon, listening to the dog get excited, then driving down our street right up the sand. Did I just get paid for that? Sweet!!

What makes this house unique

Unique benefits??? The wonderful upper and lower decks. Location. Views. To many to list.

Take the photo tour and see for yourself.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is our third visit to the "Red House" at Stinson and as always we had a magical stay. Beautiful weather, happy kids and good friends all made our stay warm and full of fun.

Looking forward to our next visit!



Thank you,

Dear Rollin,
We want to thank you so much for the wonderful week at the Red House. Our family had a blast! Your beach house had everything we needed, and we all felt so comfortable there. The kids loved the bunk beds, and we all agree the upper deck was our favorite part. What fabulous views. Thanks again so much for your hospitality.

Another excellent weekend at the Red House

  • 5 of 5
My family spent a weekend at the Red House in March for my sister's birthday, and it was so comfortable and perfectly located that we came back in November to celebrate my mom's 75th birthday. This house has a very well-equipped kitchen (with a great view for the cook!) and plenty of space for relaxing. The location is perfect -- two steps out the gate to the beach. The kids (ages 8-12) love it! We'll be back for many more birthdays, I'm sure. Thank you, Rollin, for making this house available to us and other happy guests!

Another great stay and looking forward for the next visit

Rollin, once again we have decompressed from every day life in your comfortable home. Thank you so much for sharing it with us! We enjoyed the amazing sunsets, watching the whales and porpoises, the cruise ships leaving the Golden Gate from the living room and deck and the awesome, awesome "backyard". We also visited Muir Woods, Muir Beach, Pt Reyes and Mt Tam. We look forward to returning again.

My family (5 adults & 4 kids) had a fabulous time at your big red house!!! The location is excellent; the home is spacious, comfortable and well-equipped. I'm soooo happy that we chose this rental. My sister wants to make this an annual family getaway. Thanks for giving people the opportunity to spend a few days in such a wonderful place!

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5
The Red House exceeded our expectations on all levels. It's location right on the sand was perfect for our little granddaughters. The large, well-stocked kitchen was ideal for family meals. Each of the bedrooms provided comfortable bedding and stacks of extra blankets for chilly nights. The gas fireplace was especially appreciated on a rainy day. We enjoyed the board games, Netflix, and wireless. We loved exploring the tide pools and building sand castles (beach chairs and sand toys provided!). The owner was accommodating and friendly. We all agreed that this by far has been the BEST vacation home we've ever rented!

Perfect location for beach front property. Great place for a family to spend together.

  • 4 of 5
House in great condition, fully equiped, and owner very cooperative. Unfortunetely we picked a bad week to be at the beach as it was stormy, but fun to be in the storm at the coast as well. The only reason I rate my overall experience as "good" instead of "excellent" was because of the weather which we have "no control" over! Cannot wait to go back in the summer!

Owner's Response: Glad you still managed to have a good time. We really did have some bizarre march weather last week.
When I was there a few weeks ago, it was pouring down rain, but I really enjoyed the sound of the rain on the roof as I was laying in bed looking at the ocean on a Sunday morning being lazy.
As I type this response we are experiencing stellar weather. Go figure.
