Overview

Stinson Beach House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms + Large Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-7)

Very close to the water.

The house is unique. Everything is custom designed and built.

It is a family place that feels casual and very clean. Bring food and clothes and your own music and DVDs to play through the house stereo and you're set.

The space feels large. In the living area the sight lines are long and everyone can see the cooks and vice versa

The well equipped, custom kitchen offers good access to all of the necessary food prep and serving needs. There are large counters with good areas for cooking with helpers, etc.

Dining for 8. It was designed with a family Thanksgiving in mind.

There are dedicated cupboards for your food and all the drawers you need for clothes and such..

The downstairs is intimate in a good way but the loft is an expansive space where even dancing is possible. It could sleep a small army of kids.

Upstairs offers a space away from the downstairs activities. It’s light and airy and you’re still able to communicate with anyone downstairs. It feels private. It’s a place for board games or whatever when kids aren’t on the beach. Young kids will have lots of space to play away from grownups but still be with the family.

The large flagstone front yard is perfect for outdoor cooking and dining. There's a large table, umbrella and chairs.

The house sleeps six adults very comfortably, and has parking for three cars. Classic board games, sand toys and boogie boards are provided. A table and BBQ are near the deck in the large front yard. The well equipped kitchen allows for home cooked meals, and a store and three restaurants are only a 5 minute walk away.

The waves often break for friendly surfing right out in front of the house. A hot outdoor shower is provided. The house is near some of the best hiking, running and mountain biking in the Bay Area (Mt. Tamalpais),and only a 20 minute drive to Muir Woods or to the Point Reyes National Seashore. We have extensive trail maps and guide books to the area.

Day trips to Wine Country are within driving range on beautiful country roads.

A wood fireplace is available for colder days (wood provided for your stay), and lounge chairs and a large umbrella for hot sunny days. The large loft area has two twin day beds and a futon couch. The house is warm and inviting. A perfect getaway for a family, a couple, or for two or three couples to share for a weekend or a week.

San Francisco is only 30 minutes away. The city offers world class entertainment, museums and dining.

Stinson Beach sits in the middle of The Golden Gate National Recreation Area and the countryside nearby is beautiful open space and coastal ranch land. There are great country roads that lead to outstanding views of the entire San Francisco Bay Area.

We have no cable or broadcast TV but people have said it made their vacation better. You play board games at night, maybe watch a movie downstairs while kids play upstairs? Broadband gives access on your laptop.

About Jerry Bewley

I re-designed the place for my parents in the late '80's, I tore off the roof and added a large loft space and skylights. I built custom cabinets and drawers for all of their stuff. I've been going to Stinson since I was a boy. I love to share the Stinson experience with others. I love the trails that start in town and climb up Mount Tam.

Jerry Bewley purchased this house in 1954

Why Jerry Bewley chose Stinson Beach

This home has been in the family for more than 50 years My grandparents built it by hand in 1954 and I completely remodeled it in 1988. Improvements are still happening.

What makes this house unique

Hiking and running the classic trails of Mt. Tamalpais (the Matt Davis and Steep Ravine trails are favorites), surfing Stinson Beach and Bolinas, Climbing on Stinson's quality 'bouldering rocks', bird and seal watching at the Bolinas Lagoon, getting a burger and fries at the Parkside Cafe, exploring the sand dunes and hiking to 'The Rocks' at the south end of Stinson Beach. Relaxing and reading by the fireplace on a winter day. Moon light walks on smooth sand all the way to Bolinas (2.5 miles) Finding shells and polished rocks on the beach. Everything is only a short walk away. Your car can stay parked while you enjoy Stinson.

HAD A GREAT TIME

  • 5 of 5
Our family of six stayed for 3/4 nights and had a great time. The outdoor space is as good as indoor, large deck and huge "patio" space where we could play games. Ocean sounds to put you to sleep at night, and just a short walk to get to beach during the day. Best part is you didn't have to pack up every time you left beach, just "run home and come back". Having the outdoor shower sure cut down on sand in the house too. Owner has some nice info in the house about beach "critters"..so even learned a few things. WE WOULD GO BACK.

Our first VRBO experience...

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely experience working with Jerry the owner. He graciously answered all of our questions and we could tell that he wanted our stay to be relaxing and enjoyable. The house is comfortable... so close to the beach you can hear the waves crashing at night while falling asleep. I would recommend this place to friends, no problem.

Wonderful stay at Stinson

  • 5 of 5
I came here with a few friends to attend a wedding, and our stay was amazing. This little cottage is great, easily fit five of us and definitely could have fit more. Great amenities, wonderful location, had a lovely, homey feel You're also just steps from the beach, but the area feels secluded and quiet. Jerry was fabulous, very attentive, and made sure that we had everything that we needed for an enjoyable stay.

I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to spend some time at Stinson, you won't be disappointed.

The kitchen is stocked with everthing you need and there are boogie boards and sand toys for kids.The location is wonderful , just a few steps from the beach , the ice cream/video store, and the surf gear rental and also just a short walk to town for groceries. We will be back!

A stones throw from the beach and very comfortable home. Jerry is such a pleasure to talk to and was very accommodating. It was a memorable time for my daughters 13th Birthday and the girls loved the loft!

beautiful weekend

  • 5 of 5
Speaking about being close to the beach, you can't get much closer.What a nice little house to stay at. We had a great time and enjoyed the proximity to the beach very much. We even took the patio chairs to the beach after a long afternoon stroll and enjoyed a wonderful sunset (don't mention the wine we brought:-) )
Jerry was great, greeting us and showing us around.
I would (and probably will) definitely come back and recommend it to friends. Thanks for sharing your house in this wonderful location Jerry!

Map

20 minute drive to Point Reyes National Park and 20 minutes to the tall redwoods of Muir Woods. Fantastic hiking on Mt Tamalpais. Trails out the front door are wonderful. Short and beautiful drives take you to various trail heads that offer some of the best trail running in California. Mountain biking trails are great. Many nearby trails are 'dogs on leash friendly'.

The Golden Gate Bridge is a 30 minute country drive away from the house. Day trips to the city are easily within range.
