Our family has been vacationing at Stinson Beach since the early '80s and purchased this beach home in 2000 after searching for years for a cottage that is steps from the beach and short walk to town with both ocean and mountain views. We love to listen to the ocean from the house and play cards and games at night or watch the internet TV after a fun day at the beach.
Mary Mayo purchased this house in 2000
Spent a long week-end here, in CA to attend a wedding. What a great location to unwind, explore the beach, or make this "home base" while sightseeing. You won't be disappointed.
We've rented houses in Stinson Beach many times and this house is a favorite! We are a family of four with two young girls and we've stayed here twice, each time with the four of us plus another adult. The house accommodates us comfortably. It's clean and well-stocked, and the upstairs gets great sunlight. Though it's not beachfront, you can see and hear the ocean from the living room as well as from the decks in the front and back of the house. As a surfer, I love being able to check the conditions from the living room! Beach access is so close it feels like you're on the beach. And we love the convenience of the outdoor shower and the warmth of the hot tub after being in the ocean. We often walk on the beach into town for dinner, and it's only about 5 minutes. The owner, Mary, has made us feel very welcome and has been very responsive and easy to work with. We will be back!
We had a wonderful time. Mary was great to work with. I would highly recommend staying at her home. We were steps from the beach and within walking distance of everything in town.
I rented this home for a birthday party for my husband. We couldn't have asked for a better venue for our celebration. We live in Marin County and Stinson Beach is our favorite beach. Our children and grandchildren visited during the day and since the house is literally steps from the beach it was perfect for the ease of going to and from the beach and water during the day. The house is beautifully appointed and very charming and comfortable. The pride of ownership is obvious. We like to cook we found the pots and pans a little lacking but we made due. A small inconvenience overall. I hope to return to this home again and again. The owner, Mary, was accommodating and allowed us a late checkout on our last day since the house was not rented for that night. She was also available for any questions we had prior to our stay.
The clean, bright house was a perfect fit for our family (6 of us in total, my parents were with us). It was exactly as the pictures show and the descriptions are very accurate. The kitchen was well equipt and the location was much closer to the beach than we expected. The hot tub was clean, hot and ready for us when we arrived. The owner was very responsive and friendly to inquires prior to our visit so we felt very welcomed. It is a very reasonable priced house for Stinson beach and we would certainly return and recommend it to friends!
This 3 bedroom 2 1/2 bath super clean, super cute, beach cottage was the perfect place to rent for our extended 2013 St. Patrick's Day weekend. As we drove into Stinson Beach, we passed many of the VRBO rental properties that I had originally considered. They were not as near to the beach and did not have a view of the beach but were the same price. That was our first pleasant surprize. I felt like Mary, the owners must have newly renovated the house because it seemed so fresh and clean. You can see and here the ocean from the front porch and the huge back deck. We used the hot tub after hiking one of the most amazing trails up and around Mt. Tam. I believe it is the Dipsee trail. You can access the trail head about a half a block behind the Fire Station and the particular trail we followed circles around and brings the hikers in at the beach parking lot where we rewarded ourselves with a huge ice cream cone at the Parkside Ice cream shop. I think we hiked close to 7 or 8 miles, crossed 19 bridges and saw San Francisco and some distant islands that can only be seen on a clear day. The next day we used the cottage shovel, rake and sand toys to dig a massive hole and to create masterpieces in the sand. It takes less than 30 seconds to be able to stick your toes in the sand. Mary, the owner was so thoughtful and obviously wants her guest to be happy because her attention to detail inside her charming beach house made our stay cozy and comfortable. Bring your own duriflame logs because they are expensive at the only grocery store in town. WE WILL BE BACK!
