Overview

Stinson Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1-bedroom 2-bath cottage mixes contemporary amenities with fine craftsmanship

This superb new cottage at Stinson Beach is a splendid retreat for small families with children or for two couples. The detailed design by architect Mark Hulbert (Preservation Architecture) features radiant heat, natural trims,travertine floors and vibrant interior finishes- it’s ready for you to walk in and enjoy. Less than 200 hundred feet from the beach, the house features beautiful views of the coastal mountains, partial views of the ocean and is surrounded by gardens, decks and balconies. A covered exterior stairs connect the upstairs living area with the downstairs bedroom, adding to the indoor/outdoor feel of the beach cottage. The house is brand new and about as green as they come- compact and efficient. With radiant heat, a solar array, and LED lighting, we can’t consume much less energy. Yet the house is outfitted with the kind of conveniences we all need: satellite television service, HD TV, WIFI, blue ray disc player, and many games- so there’ll be plenty for you and your family to do. Whether it’s sports, movies or internet, it’s there.

We have direct beach access (right next door) and some of the toys you need at the beach including surfboard, portable BBQ and beach chairs for a great day at the beach. If hiking is your thing, we’re a short ten minute walk from the Dipsea Trail and Steep Ravine- two of the most stunning trails on the west coast. If you’re like us and food is a major part of your weekend, you'll enjoy our kitchen. The house is set up with linens and towels. We ask you to be very careful with your use of water, as the extreme drought has forced mandatory water rationing by the Stinson Beach Water District.

About Bruce Helmberger or Shannon McCauley

My wife and I just completed this house for our use together with our friends. We've spared nothing in detailing the building and we love the feel of it. We love the area- the mountains and beach- the hiking and the stars- it's a great get-away!

Bruce Helmberger or Shannon McCauley purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Bruce Helmberger or Shannon McCauley chose Stinson Beach

This particular property has a unique relationship with the hills and ocean. It's within walking distance of two of our favorite trails in West Marin- Steep Ravine and the Dipsea Trail-It's close to the restaurants of the village and it's right next to the beach.

What makes this cottage unique

We've really spent time on personalizing the cottage- from creating vibrant color palettes that remind us of a certain freedom that exists at the beach, to carefully considered choices on tile, wood and lighting. For us it represents a range of decisions that is well suited to us and reinforces the feeling of being happy to be at the beach.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We spent nine days in this modern, efficient, comfortable and ecological home. We're from Massachusetts and chose Stinson Beach without really knowing anything about it. We were delighted to be a hop, skip and jump from the beach and close to the many glorious hiking trails of Mount Tam, Muir Woods and Point Reyes. Our only negative surprise was that the houses in this area are so close that they feel right on top of one another. We could not tell this from the photos on the web page.

Relaxing at Stinson

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely weekend here and enjoyed the house's ambiance. As a cook, I found the kitchen better equipped than expected. The house was comfortable, charming, clean and new. The layout was a bit odd with the outside staircase but since the weather was great, this was not an issue.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments. We love to cook and to bake, so we added things to the kitchen utensils that we'd want to have. Glad it was to your liking!

Excellent Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

Really wonderful little house. New, clean and very charming. Beach access just down the path was the best part; 20 seconds away. Having to use the outside stairs is the only drawback but a minor inconvenience compared to all the benefits of this great home. I would recommend it.

A small piece of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

The beach is just about in the backyard. The house is very comfortable and modern. The top and main level rooms are not connected on the inside, so you use the provided outside stairs. A great place to stay, for sure. Very cozy.
