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

We brought our family of four from Texas and this place lived up to expectations. It was a superb getaway. The house was clean and in a great location and the owner, Jennifer, was delightful - making the stay seamless. Highly recommend this home!

Clean and bright with gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at this beautiful property. The house was clean and airy with gorgeous views from every window, including the shower. The photos don't do it justice. We live close by and hope to return for another relaxing visit.

Not much to add to the other five-star reviews since they are right on the money : )

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at this clean, bright, and comfortable home immensely. The house is nicely designed for great views of the ocean, the stars, the moon, the sun, Mt. Tam, and the nasturtium-filled garden.

Jennifer is wonderful to work with. She promptly answered all of my questions clearly and thoroughly. From the beginning of the rental to the end, she was prompt, friendly, and professional. Thank you so much for letting us live in your beautiful house! It made our first visit to Stinson Beach extra enjoyable.

Owner's Response: Thank you Catherine. I am so happy you had a nice visit and enjoyed the beautiful surroundings. It really is spectacular watching the hills, ocean and stars while breathing the fresh sea air. I believe you were in town for a wedding but next time come for just yourselves. Wishing you the best,

Comfortable, clean, and incredibly relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Three of us stayed in late September for a girls weekend. It was the most perfect place for us to relax and catch up with each other. The house is beautifully decorated, very clean, and equipped with everything we needed. The beds were also very comfortable. The owner was flexible on arrival and departure time which made us feel like a guest and not a customer. The house has a beautiful view and ample parking for the location. We will certainly be back!

Fantastic place at walking distance from the beach. Lovely decorated

  • 5 of 5

We spend a week in this lovely house. View on the ocean and surrounded by green. The house is very complete and modern and is decorated with high class materials in a beach style with lots of light. Great kitchen in the middle of the house. Good wifi. Walking distance to the beach and lovely restaurant and shops in Stinson beach, we felt very at home and would go back without a doubt.
