WONDERFUL COZY, OCEANFRONT COTTAGE - ON STINSON BEACH

Stinson Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Our cozy cottage has an unobstructed view of the beach and ocean. There is a large deck with table and chairs for reading and sunbathing while watching the world go by. We recently renovated and updated with a new tile floor and new shower enclosure. Our furnishings are upscale and kid friendly. We find that even very small children are able to play right on the beach protected from the wind in our private roped-off beach lot area.

The house is very well equipped with a BBQ on the deck and all the things that you need to cook up a relaxing meal in the compact kitchen. Additionally, we have a Gourmet Grill and Panini Sandwich maker. Parents can sit on the deck and watch their children play on the beach.

Walking to town is one of the pleasures of our location. Stinson Beach can be sunny while the rest of the Coast is ''fogged in'' as we have a wonderful micro-climate.

The Pacific is really cold for swimming and the surfers - who you can watch from the house- almost always wear wetsuits. Boogie boarding is a favorite sport and many intrepid surfers have gotten their start Boogie Boarding at Stinson Beach. Boogie Boards and wetsuits are available for rent in town.

The town is charming with cute restaurants and a children's playground with slides and swings. When you're ready for a hike there are fabulous hiking trails within 5 minutes of the house. One of the most famous is the Dipsea Trail which is a wondrous walk beside a running creek, beneath giant redwoods culminating in a 10 foot ladder climb - really breathtaking. Great beach-combing and shell collecting possibilities abound on the beach.

Angela Rubin purchased this cottage in 1998

When we discovered Stinson Beach we couldn't believe that such a lovely little town could remain so unspoilt. Even tho its only 30 mins from Mill Valley it remains a refuge from the real world for all who come and stay. Owner is close by and available to answer questions or help to plan your outings. West Marin is such a special place and there's so much to do here , we feel very blessed to be able to share this amazing place.

My mother, sister, and I spent the weekend in this adorable cottage, which is directly ON the beach. The photo from the deck is not taken with some fancy photo lens. You step off the deck and you are ON the beach! We could not have asked for a more perfect setting. The front bedroom has an uninterrupted view of the ocean, and the back bedroom has a skylight making it light and bright. The living space was very comfortable and everything we needed was available. We were able to completely relax here and look forward to returning. Angela, the owner, was so kind and making the arrangements with her was effortless.

Amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We were charmed by this beach house, and the owner, Angela. We felt that we really experienced what living on the California coastline was all about. We are from Oklahoma where the summers are hot. It was pleasantly cool, and the sun was mild. We woke to an ocean view, walked the beach (my husband even saw sea anemone down by the huge boulders on the beach at low tide), sat on the deck and watched the beach and people enjoying the beach and trying to learn to surf. Everywhere there were happy children and dogs enjoying the beach with the adults. The water is fairly cold, so people surfing used wet suits. What amazed us were the families who brought out beach blankets, picnics, etc., and just truly enjoyed being on the beach for the whole entire day. We felt so privileged to enjoy the beach and come up and wash our feet off at the sprayer on the deck, so we wouldn't have to get sand all over. We spent alternate days enjoying the beach, reading, taking naps, eating around town or bringing it back to our beach house--with taking amazing day trips. Muir Woods (a dream place that I've been wanting to visit for 35+ years) is only 3-4 miles away, and you can pay $20 for the entire family on an annual pass, and go visit the serene Redwoods as often as you like. We also visited Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve. We visited Point Reyes Light House, and it was beyond words. We loved the Earthquake Trail (seeing the line of wooden poles marking the fault line) at Bear Valley Nature Park. I wish I had been in better shape for this area, because the day we visited, they had a kayak group being led by a Ranger, and I believe they were going to camp overnight at whatever spot they kayaked to. My husband has been wanting to see bioluminescent algae in the water, and we thought we'd have to go to Puerto Rico to see that, but they had sunset tour kayak rides near Bolinas, that had the bioluminescent algae as their high point. My husband was so regretful he wasn't able to make that tour. We missed cheering for the famous Dipsea Race from Mill Valley to Stinson Beach by two days--to our regret! At Muir Woods, they have a DVD you can by about the man, Jack Kirk, who raced this race for 68 years, until he was 96 yrs old! It's called Dipsea Demon. We had the most stimulating, interesting, relaxing vacation, and hope that you will be able to do the same. If you rigorously hike, surf or ride bicycles in the mountains, you will be in paradise here!

Thank you so much for such a delightful review. You obviously know how to make the most of our lovely Bay Area and Im so grateful to you for staying at our beach cottage.
Please come back and do some of the other things that you weren't able to fit in this time.
You were truly a pleasure to have staying here and I missed you when you left.

I Wish I Never Had to Leave

  • 5 of 5
This was my second stay at this lovely duplex. The location could not be better. The deck and private beach are sheltered from the wind and the walk to town for whatever you need is minimal.

The unit itself is charming, cozy and decorated very nicely. In my opinion, the photos don't do it justice. My pup and I feel right at home there. Angela goes out of her way to provide you with everything you need to enjoy your stay and was a very gracious hostess.

It's always sad to leave...I hope to be back soon.

.... we're back. Listing description/location are Accurate! This rental is way better than the photos reflect. Property is always clean & well maintained. Booking with the owner is seemless. I/We recommend this place to our family and our friends. Once again our stay here (10 days this time) was perfect. The 70+ degree days in mid winter did not hurt. We picked up fresh crab off the boat from Bolinas (Don Murch) & fresh produce from the honor-system farmer's market in Bolinas. We explored Duxbury tide pools on a low tide and hit a different trail on Mt. Tam most days. This cottage has always been clean, cozy and well equipped. Thanks Angela, our stay was a great way to begin my recent retirement.

Awesome, awesome, awesome location! The group of four of us returned after 3 nights last week - temperatures in the 70's, blue sky, absolutely beautiful!

Lot's of time on the beach, frisbee throwing, picture taking, walking, etc. Porch was excellent - no matter the time of day. Hiked on Mt. Tam just behind the beach house. Couldn't have been a better location.

Everything was great, will send the owner a couple suggestions that might help out, but would absolutely recommend this to anyone. Parking limited to 2 spaces (sorry Angela - and thanks!) We did eat at the Parkside Cafe - amazing food. A little pricey, but fresh, unique food.

#229435 Stinson - A Favorite!

  • 5 of 5
My adult son & our dogs stayed at this cottage the week of Christmas-2013, & had a wonderful Stinson visit. The listing description & photos were accurate, & the property very clean & well maintained. We parked the car in the provided parking spot & never touched it til we had to depart. The cottage is well laid out & very comfortable. Plenty of hot water for showers. Great woodstove to break the evening chill. The deck is good sized which the photo doesn't really show. The Weber BBQ, table, 4 chairs, & chaise lounge make it a wonderful viewing spot without being crowded. The lot provides a large front beach area that is roped off to form a buffer. You can't beat the location. The only drawback is that with such good reviews, the available occupancy will dwindle. I have already recommended it to several friends. We have visited Stinson before & knew of the corner store & how well stocked it is. However, we brought most of our foods, etc. with us so shopped there once. We always find Stinson both people & dog friendly and look forward to staying there again.
