About The Owner

We are a family of four plus two dogs. The kids love to boogie board, body surf, collect shells and fly kites. Of course there are the soft serve ice cream cones at Parkside too! We love the true vacation feeling only 30 minutes from home.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose The Bay Area

For our family, Stinson Beach is the perfect getaway! 30 minutes away from home it feels like you are a million miles away. Falling asleep to the sound of the waves, watching the sunset, counting sea lions and pelicans, boogie boarding and enjoying a walk on the beach all make our vacation time fantastic! Stinson Beach has a great bookstore, the market(which has practically everything!) great restaurants and of course soft ice cream cones.....

What makes this house unique

Our home offers a unique setting. The charm of a home built in 1949 combined with updated baths and kitchen. We have gorgeous ocean and mountain views with a lush private garden which is warm and tranquil. There is nothing between our home and the beach except our garden and the dunes. Enjoy cocktails on the dune deck, run down to the beach for some swimming and boogie-boarding, read a book in the garden then retreat to the house where you can warm up in front of the fire in the great room and enjoy white water views until the sun goes down!

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a great time we all had. We want to do it again. The house was terrific, and in great condition. We wanted to let you know how comfortable your home is. We all really enjoyed ourselves, and do want to return next year. Thank you again for a great time!

Perfect home for our family

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful week in this magical home at Stinson Beach. The space is clearly loved and easy to love. My 2 year old grandson was especially fond of the greyhound on the kitchen wall. Each time we sat down to eat, he looked up and smiled, "Dog running." We agreed that it was the nicest home we have rented and felt more like guests than renters. We hope to spend many more holidays here. I especially appreciated how clearly and quickly the owners responded to all of my questions. And the fenced in yard was perfect for our toddler and my dogs.

Amazing Location for a Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Gathered the family of 2 daughters with their spouses & my 3 grandchildren to have a week going to & from the water without a worry. Everyone had their own space with 4 bedrooms & media room plus 3 bathrooms including 1 with a tub for the wee ones. We took advantage of the table on the deck for lunch(seats 8) & the dining table(seats 10) for other meals. We had wonderful meals using the BBQ for steaks & chicken as well as the large kitchen where more than 1 person can function in food prep.The firepit was a big hit as we gathered in the evening post dinner for S'mores with music & conversation. The BEACH was the big hit with building sand castles with moats awaiting the flood, Jabba the Hut, runs, walks, rock climbing/bouldering & paddle boarding. The board was delivered & picked up. On an overcast day we went to Point Reyes Visitor Center to enjoy the artifacts & a hike to the Miwok village replica. We also enjoyed the donuts from Parkside after bouldering & playground time.

Hope to return in the future.

I wish I could have stayed another WEEK!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and brother-in-law rented this home, because of its location and amenities for the fourth year in a row. This was my first time but now I understand why they come back every summer! I am a professional chef and really appreciated the well-equipped and spacious kitchen. The dining area has a wonderful view-but the best spot is the dune deck for hors d'ouevres and a glass of wine. We watched the seals(sea lions?) playing in the surf and were treated to a spectacular sunset. The private garden was an great spot for sitting around the fire pit, stargazing and listening to the pounding surf. My bed was very comfortable and although it's summer, the down comforter was much appreciated. The guys all watched a game on the large TV in the media room just to get a break from all that sun. Forgot to mention I got to bring my dog, Charles. What an amazing beach for dogs-no leashes, lots of friendly dogs and plenty of birds to chase. I would definitely recommend this home and hope my sister continues the tradition!

Relax and Recharge!

  • 5 of 5

We have visited this home during the summer when our friend was renting it and fell in love! Everything was just as we remembered but this time we got to stay in the master bedroom. Such a quiet, peaceful haven for sleeping late, enjoying that first cup of coffee on the deck, followed by a long leisurely walk on the beach. 2015 has been crazy and this warm and charming home gave us all a chance to relax and recharge. Only 40 minutes away from home but it felt like we were a million miles away-with all the amenities available. Everything we needed was provided. Great BBQ too. Our dog was in heaven, such an amazing beach. Only thing we would change? Next time we'll stay two weeks!

We love this house

  • 5 of 5

My family of grandparents, parents, grandchildren, and dogs have gathered at this house for four years now, and we are looking forward to a fifth reunion there. Why? Location, layout, and management. First, views: from the kitchen, look at the golden ridges of Mt. Tam; from the deck, watch the sun set beside the Farallon islands through an ancient Monterey pine; from the top of the dunes, sit on a bench and survey the beach. The house has direct access to the beach through a garden and a boardwalk over the dunes (which protect the garden from wind). Second, layout: from the upstairs bedroom or the three downstairs, early risers can leave the house for the beach or come upstairs to light a cozy fire in the fireplace and fix themselves breakfast, all without disturbing others; owls can watch TV or movies in the media room until 2 a.m. and not be heard by sleepers. Third, management: the owners have set up an excellent kitchen (with a big gas grill on the deck) that works well for any kind of cooking from elaborate to simple; they have created a charming and comfortable ambiance; they keep the house well supplied with mundane goods like paper towels and generously supplied with beach gear, guidebooks, DVDs, and even binoculars; if something should happen to go wrong, a local manager will soon send someone to fix the problem. It is a solid old house and it feels like a home.

Second Fantastic Christmas Week!

  • 5 of 5

For the second year (and we've booked again for 2015), three generations of our family spent Christmas at this perfect home. It is relaxing for us all, has easy access to the beach, enough indoor and outdoor space for us all to spread out and privacy for the ones who want to sleep a little later. Several of us particularly appreciate the kitchen where we enjoying cooking more elaborate meals than we do during the year. This year our son-in-law also loved flying the kite he found under the deck. We couldn't thank you more for the time our far-flung group can spend together and remember so fondly.
