About the property

House, 3- Bedrooms + 2 twin sleeper-sofas, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6-8

Clean, cozy house with gorgeous natural light in the gated Seadrift community. Manmade lagoon for swimming and boating on one side, Bolinas estuary filled with ongoing parade of egrets, pelicans and herons on the other. Easy walk to the beach and tennis courts. A perfect area for kids to run, bike or skate freely.

Cable TV, ROKU, and a DVD player and, better yet, lots of books and games, a Bose CD player with iPod capability, an eclectic assortment of CDs, and many comfy chairs for reading and dozing. Sunny, warm deck with huge hot tub and view of Marin hills, well protected from wind and fog. Several canoes and/or kayaks get you on the water. Wireless internet access for those who can't leave work behind. Bikes available for use, as well as sand toys and life preservers.

Newly renovated third room with full sized bed, tv and window seat - a perfect place for some to hang out watching a movie or sports while others relax in the living room by the fire.

Spectacular hiking and bird-watching are nearby, and the gentle waves at north end of the beach offer one of the best beginning surfing spots in California.

Love everything about Stinson and Megan's house. It's where my family gathers annually

  • 5 of 5

It's warm, inviting, comfortable, open with beautiful outside scenic views in every direction. We have loved it for over 12 years.

Gorgeous house and setting

  • 5 of 5

We loved that from this house not only can you see the natural lagoon with Mt. Tam as a backdrop, but also you can enjoy a warm and spacious deck on the man-made lagoon side. From that deck it's easy to hop into a kayak or take a swim. The house's decor is creative and pretty while also comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked and nicely laid out for a group. Kayaks/canoes are a great bonus. So much to do here yet so easy to relax and listen to the ocean!

Perfect house on the lagoon.

  • 5 of 5

We just spent the weekend here in June and it was fantastic. The home is beautiful, well appointed, right on the lagoon, and about a 10 minute walk to the beach. The owner is great to work with too. We would (and hopefully will) absolutely stay here again.

If I didn't feel complete loyalty and affection for the owner (who I have never met), I wouldn't write a glowing review because I would selfishly want to keep this place for myself. That's not fair. What this house offers is a dream. A generous dream. It embodies what Stinson Beach SHOULD be all about. This is a house for rest, reflection, friends, making memories, reading Proust and reading Daniel Silva. It is also a house that encourages one to take a deep breath and recognize one's life. What a gift.
