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 The Bay Area

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...............

Wonderful and relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at this property. As soon as I walked in, I began my chant.. "I love this place. I love this place." I had to stop saying it because I was afraid my husband would think I loved the house more than being with him for four days! It is truly a lovely home. Bright with sunshine permeating every corner. Places to sit and dream or read or write. A great kitchen where you can make a nice pot of soup and stare out at the ocean. I will be back! Kudos to the owners who make everything perfect for visitors. The only suggestion I might have would be to improve the spice cabinet. I did go and buy some salt because it was running low. But again, not everyone who visits is a gourmet cook. So if you are planning on cooking up a storm, bring some of the spices you might need. Small small issue here... Love this place and can't wait to come back!

Owner's Response: Happy New Year!!! Glad your stay was enjoyable and you got to relax. I appreciate you telling me about the spice cabinet and will make some adjustments. Sometimes they get funky and I throw them away and other times there are multiples. Have a great year- 2017!!

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here last year and loved it so much that this year we brought our 2 kids. There was plenty of room for us all and we loved waking up to the most wonderful views of the ocean and the mountains. My son and husband walked down to Parkside for breakfast and then picked up items from the market on the way home. The beach was never crowded and just a short walk from the house. The house was clean and had everything we needed. It was such a treat to wake up and turn on the gas fire place that warmed the whole house perfectly. We are planning on making this an annual vacation spot. Thanks to Jennifer, the owner, for being in touch while we were there and offering a perfect place to stay.

Stinson Beach House on the Hill

Great location with views galore. This property is well kept and clean. Parking is onsite. One may have to do some serious research to get a better place to stay. Yes, I would stay there again.

A Beautiful Family Friendly Place

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved this beautiful home and it's views. It had everything we needed and our two small kids did great. We cooked several meals. If I asked in advance I wouldn't have needed to pick up a pack-n-play (Jen said one is there). The stairs or hills didn't bother us. We loved walking to the beach. We drove once and found we spent more time finding parking. The local restaurants are tasty and axon adapting for kids. We spent 3 nights here and felt like we could use one more. It's serene, even with kids.

Great place to stay in Stinson - clean and modern!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this house! We particularly liked the modern design and open floor plan - it worked great for our family of 4. The kitchen is quite nice and very well equipped, and it was also convenient having a separate area to hang out in and watch a movie in the evening. We thought the location was great as well - just a short walk down the hill to the beach. We hope to return again!
