SUNNY STINSON BEACH - HOT TUB, FIREPLACE, GARDEN AND FIRE PIT

Stinson Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

Your beautiful retreat is hidden from view by a rose covered fence. The most difficult decision is where to relax first - inside the comfy and cozy house or outdoors. Each side of the Cape Cod style house offers a unique outdoor experience. The back deck gets wonderful, warm sun during the day. Two lifeguard chairs offer a view of the waves. A nice large hot tub is perfect for relaxing after a long hike, ride or surf, or for stargazing at night. The outdoor fire pit is around the corner and looks out on a small lawn surrounded by bushes and trees. The front porch has an Adirondack loveseat for enjoying the evening light on Mt. Tamalpais.

The porch door opens into the living room. The open living room, kitchen and dining area has many large windows with deck, garden, mountain and partial ocean views. The large brick fireplace is the cornerstone of the living room. The comfy, big couch is great for lounging or sleeping if needed. The kitchen area is small but well equipped with a convection oven and two dishwashers. An electric teapot, coffee grinder and a choice of French Press or drip cones are provided to make sure you can start your morning with a wonderful cup of coffee. Dine inside on comfy Maine Cottage chairs, or outside on the deck.

Sleep is heavenly in the European Sleep Works king bed. The bedroom is at the far end of the house and the sounds of the waves are the only sounds you hear. Wake to a view of the flowers and hummingbirds through the glass doors and bedroom window. Furniture in the bedroom includes a rocking chair, a table with desk lamp (which is perfect for computer work or writing), two nightstands, a dresser and a large closet for your use.

The bedroom is separated from the living area by a bonus room that features a sleeping nest perfect for a child or friend. The sleeping area has its own ceiling lights for reading, and can be closed off by a curtain for privacy. The room has two closets; one contains the washer and dryer.

The bath is small but tidy. The shower has good pressure and lots of hot water.

About The Owner

My husband and I met at UC Berkeley many years ago. After a stint in New York, we were able to move back to San Francisco. We have a teenage son at home and another in college. We have always loved west Marin for its scenic beauty, wildlife and incredible beaches. The Stinson house has moved me closer to many of my dreams. I just completed docent training at the Martin Griffin Preserve and now have the pleasure of introducing fourth graders to the wonder of the area. I look forward to the time when I can spend more of my days paddling the lagoon, hiking the trails and doing what I can to preserve this treasure. Until then, I hope to share this truly multifaceted rejuvenating home with others.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Stinson Beach

We always dreamed of having a place in West Marin. I love Stinson because there is so much to do and see without having to get into a car. The town is friendly and meets all basic needs. Almost everyone of any age enjoys a day at the beach. Hiking trails are right outside the front door. And I fell in love with the house. It is bright and sunny, quiet and peaceful and the hot tub makes it better than a day at the spa. I also love Pt. Reyes Station, which has become the hub of the sustainable food movement, and which has interesting, unique shops. But it is just a beautiful 13-mile drive or bike away.

What makes this house unique

The benefits of a vacation at this home are many and varied. You can experience one or all of the four S’s – sun, surf, sleep and shall we say romance. I would also add sustenance for the spirit, opportunities for socializing and if desired, exercise and challenges for the physical self. The location of the home is wonderful, but it is also a good base for exploring the San Francisco Bay Area and wine country.

Lovely Beach Retreat

  • 5 of 5
This house is delightful and comfortable! We had a wonderful time hiking, boogie boarding, body surfing and just hanging out. The outdoor space is serene and lovely offering various (beautiful)views and comfortable chairs to sit in. The hot tub was great and the we used the gas grill almost every night to cook delicious meals! The décor and furnishings were clean and very comfortable (my personal favorite spot to read and take afternoon naps was the window nook with a twin bed). Cathy also provided a selection of books to use while at the house. The kitchen was well equipped and had very nice appliances. The coffee grinder was a terrific bonus. We would DEFINITELY return to this property. Cathy is the best!

Gem of a House

  • 5 of 5
This delightful house is nicely furnished, has pretty views and lovely gardens. Its location is perfect, being up the hill and away from the crowds. My husband and I hiked the hills and went to the beach during our four day stay. In the mornings, we enjoyed brunch at the Parkside. In the evenings, we had dinners at the Sand Dollar and listened to very good jazz duos. Returning to the house each night, we loved looking at the stars from the deck.
It was hard to leave this comfortable house after our Easter family reunion. We've already contacted Cathy, the helpful owner, to ask about another stay in September.

Great House

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at this cute little house. The house was very comfortable and felt like a beach house. We enjoyed the view from back deck, the hot tub and relaxing in the front room. The bed was very comfortable. Short walk down the hill to grocery store. We would definitely return to this house. Owner was very easy to work with

Light-filled beach house

  • 5 of 5
I love houses that are filled with light and Cathy's beach house did not disappoint! Both the light and the comfortable furniture make this a dreamy, relaxing place to stay. We hiked every day and returned to make dinner in the great kitchen and then relax. We slept so well in the great bed, woke up refreshed, ready to hike again. Cathy was so easy to work with. I would recommend this house to friends and family and would stay again.

Quite lovely

  • 5 of 5
Lovely detached cottage up the hill from the supermarket. Owner was prompt and very helpful. Hot tub excellent and everything worked. Bed linens and towels were old and polyester mixes and not attractive - very worn and I felt for what we were paying peak season they could be nicer. No curtains on some of the windows in the bedroom either. Patio door lock very week - felt the place could have easily been broken in to. Fox cubs playing on the deck early in the morning and humming birds in the tree were enchanting. Would stay here again. Ate at the Parkside restaurant a lot and drove to Hearts Desire Beach where it's safe to swim. The Zen centre has good massages and there's recommendations at the house for visiting masseuses. The 'den' is in between the bedroom and bathroom so you have to walk through it. Tiny bed in window recess with the curtain oddly on the other side of it so you have no curtains if you sleep in the bed. There's no blow up mattress. Having said all that it's a cute place and is right up the hill out of the Tsunami danger area.

Owner's Response: It is all true - but for one thing - all of our linens are 100% cotton except perhaps the mattress pads. Many of the towels and sheets are from Coyuchi Organic cottons in Pt Reyes Station. But point is well taken - I think it is time to purchase some new towels and sheets. You will not find fluffy towels there though, we have been on a quest for the perfect towel for many years - which for us is an absorbent, quickly drying towel. And I tried to accurately describe the bonus room and window bed in the description. The windows face south so the morning sun is a gentle sun. It's not for everyone but I enjoy opening my eyes to the flowers and deck. I have not been so lucky to see the baby foxes but you can usually count on hummingbirds. As for our locks, they do work and things can always change - but folks in Stinson feel very safe.

It's been a wonderful couple years since I began to rent the home. I truly try to make it a relaxing and comfortable retreat for me and for all of you. I appreciate all of you who have stayed and all who have taken the time to review the property online and send me comments. And I am ever grateful to the visionaries who fought to preserve West Marin and keep it such a special place so close to such a vibrant city.

Perfect place to wind down

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect place for us to wind down. We enjoyed the quietness of not being right at the beach but aswell the short distance to the beach. Hiking up the hills or walking and running at the beach was our daily routine. Even though summer in northern California can be a Little on the cooler side, we loved to sit outside and listen to the waves of the ocean or to read in front of the fire place.
We certainly would love to come back to this wonderful and very romantic place.

Walk to the best beach in northern California or to the trails of Mt Tamalpais. Muir Woods is a hikeable distance. Close proximity to Pt Reyes and Olema. Easy, scenic day trips to wine country and San Francisco.
