Bolinas 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.

Best location in town

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week at the cottage, what a treat. Plenty of wildlife, boating activity, views and relaxation. We did not move the car for the first 2 days. Easy walk to town, great shops and everything you need at the grocery. The coast cafe has great local food Smiley's saloon is the friendliest place to enjoy local music and drink and you can get there without driving. The cottage is well equipped with everything you will need including coffee grinder. We walked on the beach at every low tide, nice friendly people everywhere. Because it was November we had a fire every night very cozy.

best location in Bolinas

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in other Bolinas vacation rentals. This by far is the best location. Only a few feet to the Channel and beach and on the Lagoon with picture window views of the Lagoon and mountainous Bolinas Ridge in the background. You can access the water from the deck. The kayaks provided a great way to enjoy wildlife up close. The cottage is very comfortable. Lots of nooks to hang out, all with great views. The deck is sunny and warm (for our week anyway). Love watching those seals. The kitchen is well equipped, roomy and open. Wifi is fast enough. TV has streaming capabilities. Although it's one bedroom, we had no trouble using the fold out couch for another family member. A child also can sleep on the cushion of the living room window box. A second bathroom provides some privacy if there is more than a couple. The title "Magical Cottage..." is appropriate.

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!
