About Jennifer

My husband and I purchased the lot in 2005 with excitement beyond belief. We actively started designing around some very strick guidelines and restrictions. In the end I believe we achieved a very nice product with his building skills and my artistic talents. You'll find unusual details throughout the home and my paintings on the walls.

Jennifer purchased this house in 2006

Why Jennifer chose Stinson Beach

We built our home at Stinson beach in 2005. Stinson Beach was a natural choice and had a long history for our families. My husband and I grew up going to Stinson either after school, with our families for holiday, and then later for family reunions bringing our kids. There is so much to do- walk/run the beach, swim, surf- board or body, sunbath, hike the fabulous trails, kayak the lagoon, relax, and the list goes on.

We feel very fortunate to have found this lot with the ability to build a simple but stylish home that serves many travelers.

What makes this house unique

The beauty of the beach, the sound of the waves crashing, the intimate neighborhood community, close to town for a stroll to dinner, near the town market, fabulous sunsets. You get the best of both worlds that Stinson has to offer- the beach but also the mountain!! The famed Dipsea Trail, majestic Matt Davis Trail just outside our door. Gorgeous sunsets, collecting shells, flying kites, building sand castles...............

Charming, authentic, well-maintained beach home on quiet street.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful gardens cascade the hillside setting off a beautifully maintained home with plenty of patios to enjoy the scenery. No surprises. This home is exactly as you see it in the pictures. The street and neighborhood are very quiet and the town is very quaint. Local markets and restaurants have plenty of variety and good organic options. Although it rained quite a bit during our stay, we had time on the beach, enjoyed Muir Woods, a few National Park hikes, and the Food and Farm tour out of Point Reyes. Our host, Jennifer, was very accommodating when I goofed on the number of days and required an extra night. All-in-all, it was a really nice week in their beautiful beach home!

Perfect Stinson Rental

  • 5 of 5

I have been renting this house for 10-years now and it never disappoints. Great floor plan, fantastic views. Clean and comfortable. Watch the sunset from 1-of-2 decks while the moon rises behind Bolinas Ridge. What's not to love? Thank you Jennifer for another wonderful get away!

We didn't want to go!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place. It was a perfect location close to town and the beach and the ocean views were divine. The house was just perfect for our needs. It was spacious, clean with comfy beds and beautiful views from both decks. We loved it and loved the community of Stinson Beach. It

is a great VRBO and we will not hesitate to book here again!

Quiet and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 4 agreed that this is the best coastal rental we have ever stayed in. Clean, cozy, beautifully and simply decorated, there was ample space for us to relax in after long hikes. Cooking for ourselves was easy with the home’s amenities (esp. the grill) and that made us feel right at home.

With respect to the location, it doesn’t get much better—waking up to gorgeous views of the sunrise lighting up the surf or the brilliant star shows at night. The only complaint I have is that it was difficult to leave!
