The Castle House has two bedrooms (with queen-size beds) and two baths. The bedrooms have views of the beach and the ocean and are located at the front and rear of the house. There is a fully equipped kitchen, a large deck and a large covered porch with outdoor furniture. It is a comfortable, well kept and very nicely furnished home.

Exactly what the pictures show
We had a very nice stay at the castle house on Stinson Beach. It is as spacious as the pictures show and the deck also has lots of room to play. less than a five minute walk from the market where coffee is available in the morning. About ten minutes to the fire station where you then have great access to different trailheads. Obviously it’s also right on the Beach so it was wonderful to wake up to the sound of waves every morning. Elida the owner was extremely pleasant in our communications and also timely in her response. The kitchen is well stocked with equipment. The space heaters do their job of keeping the place warm when it is cold outside. Would definitely stay here again!
We had an excellent time at the castle. It is a great location!
I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay!
Lovely Beach Getaway
Located right on Stinson beach, the "castle" house provided the perfect atmosphere for a wonderful beach weekend. It was also within walking distance to town and Mount Tamalpais.
Home is falling apart
The property is in poor repair. There was black mold in the family room, kitchen and bathrooms. There were broken palm limbs pilled in the back yard. The deck was broken and rotten in many areas. There were electrical wires run along the wall in a serious code violation. The homeowner showed up on our day to take the trash out. Actually I believe she showed up to make sure we only had 4 people at the house. We are requesting half our money back for a very disappointing vacation...we did not want to stay but with her no return policy we were stuck with a house that I was sold as a 5 by VRBO and it really is a 1 at the best.
Today, five and a half weeks after your arrival, is the first time that I hear of you discontent with your stay at the house.
I met you briefly at the property when I came by to see if the water district measuring gauge was obstructed by the bamboo leafs (I can check the gauge from outside of the fence without entering the house). I mentioned to you, that since I was there, I took the garbage out for pick up date, to save you the effort. At no time, I thought that I needed to check on how many guest you had staying at the house since, from our previous interactions, it appeared to me that you were a mature person. When I introduce myself, you should have pointed out to me the items of discontent. But you did not. Why didn't you take the opportunity? I introduced myself but you chose not to say a word. I am a very approachable and friendly person. I find that your accusations above are unfounded!!
Our Girls Trip
My daughter-in-law and my two granddaughters loved our stay at the Castle House. The house was clean and very comfortable. It is right on the beach. We enjoyed the view of the ocean from all the windows in the house, the walks on the beach every day and sitting outside on the deck. It is walking distance to the market, shopping and restaurants. We hope to someday come back and stay again. The owner Elida Doldan-Schujman was just wonderful with any questions we had.
Love the accommodations and location!
The accommodations of the property were great and the location on the beach is the best! There is a roped off section in front where my two boys played in the sand and I could sit on the deck and observe them. It was also convenient to walk to the store if we needed any items. We will be coming back hopefully soon! Thank you Elida for allowing us to stay in "the castle".
