ELEGANCE AND ECOLOGICAL MEET IN THIS BRAND NEW BEACH COTTAGE

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.

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 Elena Engel purchased this cottage in 2013

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.

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.

Excellent experience at this exceptional home!

I have nothing but good things to say about this rental home! It is extremely clean, modern, cozy, and well laid out. The owners were very timely in response to any questions I had, you can literally park your car and not use it during the whole time you stay here (everything is within walking distance), the location is great and the beautiful beach is a tiny walkway away, the neighbors are nice and friendly, and there isn't a thing lacking for a stay here! Looking forward to a return trip!
Owner's Response: Shauna, thank you for such a lovely review. We are so happy that our cottage and it's location met your expectations. It is a great feeling when people feel the same joy we do when we stay at the beach!

Really excellent location along with incredible amenities make this just an amazing experience. Probably one of the best properties we have stayed at and we have been coming to stinson for over 20 years

Owner's Response: It seems to us that the environment and the building both inspire in us the need to give a little extra attention to the details of the building and to the garden as well. And the return for that is much greater than what we've put in. Each time it seems that there is something surprising in the details that we've never noticied and it's gratifying to know others see and appreciate that same thing. We love spending time at this place.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

House is nicer than the photos. Lots of sun. My favorite thing about this house is the location. We could take an easy stroll down the beach to have dinner in town, and then enjoy the sunset on the way back. The beach is very walkable (wide and flat) and the sand is so soft. Other high points of our visit were kayaking on Bolinas Lagoon and slurping oysters at the Drakes Bay Oyster Farm on the Point Reyes National Seashore. Definitely want to come back next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. We feel the exact same way about it. I'll work on the photographs and look forward to seeing you next year!
