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

Nice to be up and away from the beach

  • 4 of 5

We loved thee quiet and the roominess. Wish they had two queen size beds for adults, though we made due with the twin beds for our adult children.

Owner's Response: Thanks for choosing our home for your vacation stay. Sorry the beds were not big enough. Understandable. We try to accomodate a variety of guests and realize one big bed would be nicer but it also limits who can stay. The pull out couch was broken from a past tenant and figuring out what to do.

Wonderful Home in the Perfect Location to Relax and Enjoy the Beauty of Stinson Beach

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I had a wonderful stay at this perfect rental house in Stinson Beach. The house is beautiful, peaceful and quiet. The pictures online do not do it justice, as it is beautiful inside, and has great views of the ocean from 2 different decks on the outside. Originally we thought we wanted to stay at a place right on the beach. We are so happy we did not, and stayed here. This home is in a lovely, peaceful and quiet neighborhood, but is close enough to the ocean that you can hear the calming surf. We could have walked to the beach, but chose to drive down the hill, as parking is amble and free at Stinson Beach. We loved our walk on the beach as well as an amazing hike in Mount Tamalpais State Park. We also went out to dinner twice and were impressed with the quality of food a small beach town had to offer. When my sister and I are next able to get away for another weekend together, we definitely want to come back to this wonderful home.

Light-filled, peaceful, beautifully designed getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend at Jennifer's place. She was very responsive and pushed our rental through at the last minute when another place fell through. The house makes great use of its separate spaces, with a lovely common area. It's ideal for those who want to be walking distance from the beach, but prefer the quieter, set-back feel of being a little farther up the hill with Mt. Tam looming. Lots of small flourishes set this house apart (big flat driveway, basketball hoop, safety lighting to ease your entry if you arrive at night, well-stocked kitchen implements). Highly recommend.

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!!
