Our family has been involved in the building trades in Marin for over 100 years. We love the beach and enjoy surfing and water sports. We love having family and friends out in Bolinas and never get tired of walking the beach and to town. We know you will love it here.

The Owner purchased this house in 1996

We chose 93 Brighton first for its proximity to Brighton Beach and Downtown. Next because of its historic charm. The house has an "Old Soul" quality with all the comforts and conveniences you would expect.

Because the house is so close to the beach, I remain gratefull each time I come out of the water and am able to jump immediately into the hot outside shower or hot tub. The kids can come and go to the beach as they like. I enjoy walking with a freshly brewed cup of coffee the length of the beach first thing in the morning. Walking into town is always enjoyable with a visit to the peoples store, The surf shop, bookstore, library, the bolinas market, smileys or the Coast Cafe for a wonderful Breakfast.

Best Spot in Bolinas!

This historic beach house worked great for our 2 couples plus kiddos. It's spacious with a big comfortable living room, huge dining room, and nice kitchen with direct access to the private courtyard, hot tub, and guest cottage in back. There's off street parking and an outdoor shower too.

Jeffery was quick to respond during booking and we had a wonderful stay. The location is stellar. Turn left, go 50 yards, and your toes are in the sand. Turn right and town is just around the corner. We enjoy staying in Bolinas so much more than Stinson these days -- no crowds and way more charm. Anyways, Jeffrey's family beach home is a great value and we'd love to return soon.

Relaxing, beautiful, perfect house

This is literally the perfect vacation house. It is beautifully and comfortably decorated in a sort of beachy, shabby chic style. It feels like the best of being in your own home, but with all the perks and upside of being on vacation. And even more amazing than the house itself is the location! It couldn't be better.

We headed here for a relaxing getaway and we got just that. Each day we threw a couple of things in a bag and walked, barefoot, the approximately 20 yards down to the beach. Knowing we could easily walk back to use the restroom or make lunches made each beach day easy. When we wrapped it up at the beach, we came back to the house and used the warm outdoor shower to rinse off the sand, then headed for a dip in the hot tub.

This house is perfectly equipped for families. We had three families there, and there is ample space to not feel like you're tripping over anyone. There is also a charming little garden area behind the house where we enjoyed our daily "happy hour" as the kids played. The whole property is serene and peaceful, as is the town itself, and of course, the beautiful beach.

I can't recommend this house highly enough. If you are looking for a beautiful home with all modern amenities yet still keeping a very relaxed, comfortable feel, and of course, great access to one of northern California's most perfect beaches, you cannot go wrong with this property. I can't wait to go back.

Like Walking Into My Own Home

All I could say when I opened the front door was 'wow, this is just what I wanted.' This is a wonderful roomy comfortable 2 story home with a thoroughly modern kitchen, two patios, a hot tub, laundry room, fun cottage and a deck. The beach is so close you can check out the waves from the deck on the second floor. The house was immaculate. I had friends and family stop by ranging in age from 5 years old to 75+ and they all said the same thing, 'how did you find this?' If you are a surfer, a beach comber or someone who just wants a quiet place to hang out, this is it. A short walk into town brings you to a well-stocked general store and some good restaurants. Stinson Beach is close by. You can even paddle there if you want. (I have in the past.) The Pt. Reyes National Seashore is about 45 minutes away with more beaches and trails than you have time to visit. I would come back in a heartbeat.

Wonderful family reunion venue

Our family (ages 5 months to 67) from across the U.S. recently enjoyed a wonderful week at this comfortable and charming house. It's set up great for a large group as far as cooking and dining. Just steps from the beautiful Bolinas beach and a nice walk to the small business area that has a good restaurant, old fashioned grocery, and funky bar. The house includes places to escape to for some quiet time, including a rooftop deck, back patio and hot tub. Plenty of books on the shelves and cool old photos on the walls were a nice touch (bring your own games though--not much there). We needed more space and rented an auxiliary house, but this one was far superior. Even includes enough parking for 4 cars. Perfect spot not only for surfers but people who enjoy walking, birding, and exploring Point Reyes seashore. We look forward to returning some day. Highly recommend.

Absolute perfection!

Just returned from a fantastic week in Bolinas, highlighted by the wonderful accommodations provided by this historic home. Our extended family retreat was one of our best and could not have been better located. Access to the beach and town was just as described. Walkable and ideally located. Whether sunning on the back patio by the hot tub or on the deck overlooking the ocean, there was no lack of opportunity to enjoy the outstanding vistas, and admiring the amazing flowers, bushes and trees. We felt immediately at home and relaxed in the spacious living areas, and enjoyed the photographic history of the Bolinas area on the walls in each room. Whether surfer, sheller, beach bum or birder, you can't go wrong in this home. I would highly recommend it to all.
