Enter though a custom wood gate into the peaceful ambiance of this beautiful home. The house is surrounded by decks and a beautifully landscaped yard for a very private feel.
Just steps to the beach and 2 blocks to town. Understated and stylish decor (newly redecorated) with hardwood and Spanish tile floors, high ceilings and skylights for lots of light. Attention to your comfort includes high thread-count sheets, down pillows and duvets, Turkish cotton towels.
If you love to cook, the kitchen is fully-equipped and if you don't, there are good restaurants nearby.
A cozy woodburning fireplace warms the house on a cold day and adds romance. There is a warm water outdoor shower in the back yard in addition to the one in the house.
Upstairs there is a bathroom and a very spacious L-shaped open room with high ceilings. It has a queen bed on one side and a sitting room on the other side. The sitting room (which is open to the bedroom) has a futon sofa bed and would work great for young kids who need to be near parents. There is an upstairs deck off the sitting room that has a lovely view of the beach and ocean.
Downstairs there is a full bathroom with shower and tub. A queen Murphy bed pulls down from the wall in the living/dining space. Note that this is part of the public living area.
The house sleeps 2 couples or one couple and 1-2 kids.

After a day at the beach, we love to go to the Parkside Grill for frosties and fries, then go to the kids playground across the street. In the winter, we bundle up and walk on the beach in the rain, then warm by the cozy fire at home.
Stinson Beach has a quaint, small town feel, untouched by the hectic pace of life over the hill (on the San Francisco side). Every summer, we spent lots of time at the beach and found we didn't want to leave and go home. The scenery (beach, mountain, forest, lagoon) is truly spectacular here.
There are so many unique spaces to enjoy in this property. The back yard is sheltered so on windy days you can sit outside and enjoy the day. The front deck has shade of a majestic cypress tree on hot days. There are benches along the side deck for intimate conversation. The upstairs balcony is a favorite spot for views of the beach.
