ROMANTIC GETAWAY WITH OCEAN VIEWS

Bolinas House Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom 940 sq. ft. home with awesome views of the Pacific

This romantic retreat is a West Marin gem. Our vacation rental is located at the end of the road with a terrific view of the Pacific Ocean. It is an inspirational oceanfront setting. You can see the ocean from every room in the house. This 940 sq ft. home has wireless high-speed internet, Direct TV, HBO, with a flat screen TV.

You will enjoy an extremely comfortable queen size bed with organic sheets and a down comforter. Our fully equipped kitchen is stocked with all your cooking appliances, basic utensils, pots and pans, spices, oils, coffee & teas, etc. and more. Just flip a switch and the beautiful blue Vermont propane stove provides warm ambiance and ample heat. The duel pane windows help keep in the warmth and provide beautiful views to the Ocean.

This idyllic spot is perfect for a long weekend, mid-week getaway, or a multiple week/month stay. It is relaxing and quiet with peaceful surroundings! Bolinas is beautiful all year round, whether the fog has rolled in, a storm is bearing down or the sun is shining bright. Never dull weather!

The outdoor garden area, with seating, looks out towards the Pacific Ocean. Pictures say a thousand words. Need I say more?

The eclectic town and it's people are unique and worth visiting. We have a health food store, a one-of-a-kind bookstore, Smileys the longest running bar in California, fabulous meat counter at the market with the wooden sidewalks, and art galleries galore.

We are close to 100's of trails in the Golden Gate National Recreational Area and Point Reyes National Seashore. Stinson Beach is only 15 minutes away and Pt. Reyes Station is 25 minutes.

Always something outdoors to do but the home is so inviting that indoor sports are just as fun.

If you want to bring a pet, a photo will be required. Small to medium sized dogs welcome. And your cats too!

Fifth generation Californian. Use to visit Bolinas as a child. Always loved the ocean. Split my time between Bolinas, South Lake Tahoe and Bel Marin Keys.

Shannon Kilkenny purchased this house in 1997

Bolinas is a one of a kind place to live. I don't think there is another place like it in the world. It has the most beautiful natural views and a wonderful unique mixture of people.

Location, location, location. Can't say enough about the views and the peace and serenity of the spot.

Best getaway in Bolinas

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a wonderful warm place to stay by the ocean look no further. I knew it was going to be a wonderful experience when I received my first reply from the owner Shannon. She is so attentive and so quick to respond to any question I ask. She made me and my girlfriend feel so welcome and we hadn't even left our home yet. That alone was enough to make me want to book my second trip. Everything I expected was met and exceeded once I drove up to the house. Before we pulled in we were greeted with exceptional views of the Pacific ocean. The house is so much bigger then the pictures let on and the views and surrounding area are so special it was so very hard to leave the day of checkout. A big thanks goes to Shannon for opening up this gem to us. Thank you and we will be returning.

Great week-long getaway

  • 5 of 5
Shannon's house is on the cliff above Brighton Beach and the Duxbury Reef conservation area. It only takes about 15 minutes to walk down into Bolinas and the entry to the beach, and we did it with our dog twice a day for a week. Shannon's house is as she describes it on VRBO and is quiet and comfortable. It is better equipped than we could use for our stay. We've stayed in the Bolinas area several times in the last few years and are glad that we found Shannon's house for our latest visit. We'll be back.

Comfortable weekend for small family plus pet

  • 5 of 5
First, Shannon the owner was very responsive to my inquiry and questions which was much appreciated. She made the process of booking quick and pleasant. The house was very comfortable for a three night stay for my small family: hubby, toddler, dog and myself. Protective sheets were provided for the couch and bed which was meant for our dog but really proved necessary for our toddler. Tip for pet owners: look under the bed - there is a dog bed and blankets provided (we missed that until we were leaving and checking for lost items). Bed was cozy and the silk sheets divine. The kitchen had all we needed to cook our meals. We enjoyed doing a puzzle on the large dining table and watching a movie on the big screen TV. Our toddler enjoyed playing in the front garden and looking for lady bugs, banana slugs and other critters. The street is quiet and there weren't many cars so great for kids. During the day we went down to Bolinas beach or Stinson Beach to play in the sand or look for shells. For kids, there is a nice enclosed park in Stinson Beach near the snack shack (get sandwiches at The Lunch Box - yum) across the street and a play ground in Bolinas behind the fire station. We left feeling relaxed after our visit to Bolinas and this beach house. We'll come again!

We loved our 3 nights here. The layout is perfect for 2 people. The view, the outside space, and the privacy make for a very relaxing getaway. Lots of nice touches, the comforts of home and nothing but good vibes. Enchanted it is!!
