Overview

The Bay Area Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

Enjoy the peace and tranquility of the lagoon. Watch the pelicans dive, the seals frolic, the osprey soar as the tide ebbs and flows directly below the deck. Play in the sand and ocean surf(direct access to the lagoon from the deck), collect shells along the beach or kayak (Kayak and canoe provided) with the seals in the lagoon.

Hike or Bike in the nearby Golden Gate National Recreational area or along the Bolinas Ridge in the Mt. Tamalpais watershed. In minutes you can walk to town and browse through the diverse shops unique to Bolinas. Or, simply enjoy the magnificent views from every window as you snuggle up on the window seat or next to the wood burning stove.

Highest recommendations for both this lovely cottage and it's owners. Our stay could not have been more perfect: more than comfortably furnished and equipped, both inside and on the deck, and a prime location at the mouth of the lagoon where it meets the ocean. A dream spot made for a dream get away by responsive and responsible owners.

Beautiful cottage and location

  • 5 of 5

Rented this lovely cottage for my daughter, son-in-law and their 2 children, as we had all come up to Bolinas for a family wedding - they thoroughly enjoyed their stay. Everything was perfect and the kids aged 5 & 8 loved sleeping on the window seats and watching the seals play in the lagoon. The bird life is amazing too. The beach is a 2 minute walk - it could not have been a better location. The booking and house instructions were made very easy and clear by the owner.

All in all a delightful place to stay in a truly wonderful little town. Thoroughly recommended.

What a wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this beautiful cottage, and things could not have been nicer. We spent the bulk of our time in town, just relaxing and enjoying the vibe of Bolinas. The local folks we met were very nice, and we also made short day trips to Pt Reyes Seashore, the Russian River wineries, and more. The pictures don't do the cottage justice - especially the relaxing view from the deck. We watched the seals swim by, following the tide, and watched surfers on the nearby beach. Everything inside was just as it is pictured and described, and is very well maintained. I only wish there wasn't a skylight above the bed; that made it hard to sleep late :-) Overall, this is a GREAT property, and I'd highly recommend it!

Kayaker's Dream

  • 5 of 5

If you kayak or like to canoe then you are in for a treat. The Bolinas Lagoon is a nature lovers dream. Come visit at different times of the year. Every season has a new experience! The views from the deck and living area are beautiful day or night. A very short walk to the beach or the Village of Bolinas keeps you on your feet all day and evening. FYI: Know your Tide Chart. You are very close to the mouth of the lagoon which is influenced by the tide. Regardless..........it's fun to watch as the tide pushes water in or sucks it out!

We have stayed in this lettle cottage with my 86 year old Father and my 4 year old niece. My teenage grandchildren are constantly entertained.............they don't even use their electronics! That says a lot. ENJOY!!!!
