We are a family of 3 in the Bay Area. We come to the house often, but love to share our wonderful cottage with others. We know you'll love the house, the perfect location, and, of course the beach as much as we do.

Highway One Properties purchased this house in 2006

We've come to Stinson Beach every year since our child was very young. After several years of day trips and summer rentals, we finally took the plunge and bought this house in 2006. We enjoy the house and Stinson Beach as much today as the first time we were there and look forward to keeping this home in our family for generations to come!

A perfect day at Stinson: Sleep in, waking up to the sounds of the waves. Breakfast and coffee on the view deck (or brunch at the Parkside Restaurant). Play on the beach, then walk to lunch at the beach grill. Wander around town, then bike to Seadrift or take a hike on the Dipsea or Steep Ravine Trails. Back to the beach. Dinner at Stinson Beach Grill or Parkside (or drive to Bolinas or Point Reyes), or cook fresh food from the market. Watch a DVD, go in the hot tub, and call it a great day!

GREAT LOCATION, OK HOUSE

  • 2 of 5
I rented this house last weekend for 3 nights with my husband and twin one-year-olds. The location was fantastic – a few yards to the nice beach and a short walk to town. All the restaurants in town are great. We enjoyed the view from the outside deck, which is at the back of the yard, unattached from the house. We appreciated having plenty of hot water and the hot outdoor shower for rinsing off the sand. The yard would have been perfect for our dogs but we didn’t bring them.

The house itself could use a lot of TLC. It’s is very old and charming, but regardless, the furnishings could use some serious updating. They felt dirty and worn. The mattress in the main room was lumpy, creaky and old and the linens were shabby. The family room rug was dirty and stained. There is also a horrible rusty smell coming from the kitchen sink. The kitchen had the basics. We did not even attempt the BBQ.

I don’t mean to be harsh and critical, I just want future renters to know what they’re renting. The description and pictures can’t tell you that. I understand that these old beach houses are difficult to maintain (I live in an old house so I get it) but that doesn’t mean they have to feel gross and worn. If you don’t care about that stuff, then this is the perfect rental for you. But I felt gross staying here, it felt like a motel for the price of a 4-star hotel. A few basic updates and it could be great.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this helpful feedback. So glad to hear that you enjoyed the location and outside features of our home! It is definitely a lovely spot and we greatly enjoy having the separate view deck, as well as the hot tub and hot water shower.

We regret that the inside may have not been up to your standards but do appreciate the feedback on items needing attention. The King bed has been supplied with new linens and duvet as well as a memory foam pad. We do regularly clean the rugs and they have been of late. Lastly, we apologize for any problems with the kitchen sink: possibly a prior guest had put something down the sink which isn’t equipped with a garbage disposal.

PERFECT VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We didn't want to leave! The house had everything we needed, down to the measuring cup. We enjoyed breakfast outside on the upper deck. My boys had scooters to run around on, as well as smash ball paddles. We had fun playing Surf Monopoly while we ate fresh baked brownies! We made friends with the neighbors, and our children played together on the beach. Our dog owned the neighborhood and came and went as he pleased. We romped on the beach during the day, and relaxed in the hot tub to warm up after. This lovely home is quaint, spacious and was perfect for our little family. Not a detail is missed by the owners. We look forward to coming back to this historical little spot for many more vacations to come! :-) THANK YOU!

WONDERFUL STINSON BEACH VISIT

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay in your charming cottage in Stinson Beach! In addition to the modern comforts, I really appreciated the history of this house, the original part (the main room) of which is 100 years old – the rental office for the tent cabins here in the beginning of the century. The floor may slant a bit & the ceiling may initially seem low in the main room, but for me it brought back fond memories of my grandparents’ old summer place in New England. The house was very clean & tastefully decorated, the kitchen is all modern with a gas range & plenty of room, the bathroom small yet well-done (including nice shampoo, conditioner, & soap), the towels & linens good quality, & the bed we used comfy. It was sunny & light as advertised, and the back bedroom had nice views of the ocean.

Outside, the low fence kept our small dog in while he enjoyed the backyard (beautiful Mexican sage!) & the front & side porches. Nice, clean hot tub &, best of all, the elevated deck in back. An excellent, modern addition! We had most meals there watching the ocean, including a lovely sunset. We loved the location – we walked barefoot from the house to the beach, & it was just a few minutes walk to Stinson’s town center by either beach or road. Folks we met were all very nice & friendly & this is dog paradise!

The company managing the property is right around the corner and was very helpful & accommodating. We even bought fresh eggs at the office! They let us look at other rental properties, which was very educational. Lots of nice properties, all with qualities to recommend them, & we still felt that we ended up with the best one for us! With only two of us, we didn’t even use the two double beds so I’d like to return with kids and/or friends to take full advantage of the space.

For organic, local foods folks, this area is heaven. A local farm was at the Stinson Market Friday pm & Saturday we got more lovely produce in Bolinas at the Gospel Flat farm stand – honor system and open 24 hours! Then we picked up just-off-the-boat local tuna at the Bolinas Market & had a simple, absolutely delicious meal watching the ocean from the deck. Our only meal out was at The Lunch Box, 3 months old, near the Parkside Café - delightful & delicious.

You can probably tell we had a marvelous time! And we barely scratched the surface of what the area has to offer because we were so content to spend most of our time on the beach. We’ll be back soon! And will walk to nearby great trails!

Owner's Response: Thank you so very much! Not only for the wonderful review but for reminding us of why we bought this house and what a wonderful place Stinson and the West Marin coast is indeed! In fact, I hadn't been out to the house since June and managed an overnight after reading your review. It is a magical place and you've fully captured it in all the detail above. I couldn't have said it better. Thank you for your gracious words and sincerely hope you'll stay again.
