Our cozy cottage has an unobstructed view of the beach and ocean. There is a large deck with table and chairs for reading and sunbathing while watching the world go by. We recently renovated and updated with a new tile floor and new shower enclosure. Our furnishings are upscale and kid friendly. We find that even very small children are able to play right on the beach protected from the wind in our private roped-off beach lot area.
The house is very well equipped with a BBQ on the deck and all the things that you need to cook up a relaxing meal in the compact kitchen. Additionally, we have a Gourmet Grill and Panini Sandwich maker. Parents can sit on the deck and watch their children play on the beach.
Walking to town is one of the pleasures of our location. Stinson Beach can be sunny while the rest of the Coast is ''fogged in'' as we have a wonderful micro-climate.
The Pacific is really cold for swimming and the surfers - who you can watch from the house- almost always wear wetsuits. Boogie boarding is a favorite sport and many intrepid surfers have gotten their start Boogie Boarding at Stinson Beach. Boogie Boards and wetsuits are available for rent in town.
The town is charming with cute restaurants and a children's playground with slides and swings. When you're ready for a hike there are fabulous hiking trails within 5 minutes of the house. One of the most famous is the Dipsea Trail which is a wondrous walk beside a running creek, beneath giant redwoods culminating in a 10 foot ladder climb - really breathtaking. Great beach-combing and shell collecting possibilities abound on the beach.
Our goal is to make you feel welcome and relaxed for your vacation. Whether you elect to play in the sun, try boogie boarding, hike mountain trails or enjoy taking time alone this house has what you need.
Decorations are European in style and the furniture is kid friendly and very comfortable with designer touches everywhere.This is comfortable ocean front living at its best with modern amenities where you can have a healthy day, a restful evening and a sound night's sleep.Because our calendar is sometimes not up to date we always respond promptly to your email requests and can also be reached via cell phone.
Angela Rubin purchased this cottage in 1998
When we discovered Stinson Beach we couldn't believe that such a lovely little town could remain so unspoilt. Even tho its only 30 mins from Mill Valley it remains a refuge from the real world for all who come and stay. Owner is close by and available to answer questions or help to plan your outings. West Marin is such a special place and there's so much to do here , we feel very blessed to be able to share this amazing place.
Ocean Front - view the dolphins playing and the waves plashing while you lie in bed.
My mother, sister, and I spent the weekend in this adorable cottage, which is directly ON the beach. The photo from the deck is not taken with some fancy photo lens. You step off the deck and you are ON the beach! We could not have asked for a more perfect setting. The front bedroom has an uninterrupted view of the ocean, and the back bedroom has a skylight making it light and bright. The living space was very comfortable and everything we needed was available. We were able to completely relax here and look forward to returning. Angela, the owner, was so kind and making the arrangements with her was effortless.
If you love the beach this is the place for you.
We had the most lovely stay at Angel's beach house!
The ocean beach is literally right outside the front door. We went to sleep with the sound of the ocean waves and waking-up to an endless view of ocean and beach. We brought our little dog who had the most fun running up and down the shore. Shops and restaurants were easily within walking distance.
We had many days of endless entertainment watching the wind surfers, body surfers, the dogs and people There were a few chilly evenings and the wood stove worked perfectly. There are also electric heaters if you need immediate heat, but we personally love the fire early in the morning and at night.
This is a wonderful, small home with the best ocean and beach views I've ever seen! We hope to return again and again.
Thank you Angela!
We loved everything about our stay at this sweet beach house. It was perfect for our family of four and Angela was just as lovely as could be. Our two young sons were delighted to roll right out of the house on to the sand and my husband and I were in heaven every night falling asleep to the sound of the waves crashing. We are already talking about making reservations for next year. Thank you Angela! We'll be back soon.
We rented this property over Easter weekend and had a fantastic stay. This property is the essence of "beachfront" as the front stairs off the deck take you right to the sand. And the deck! We spent hours relaxing on it and were able to watch our kids boogie board from the deck. The inside of the property is so cozy and the front bedroom looks right on to the beach. It was lovely having the waves lull us to sleep every night. Our dog also enjoyed this property spending many lazy afternoons taking a nap on the deck as there is a doggy gate at the stairs leading to the beach so we never worried about our dog sneaking off to play with the many doggy pals she met as this extremely dog friendly beach. We didn't even get in our car the 3 days we stayed as the town center is a 5 Minute walk up the beach. The owner Angela was so easy to work with in planning our stay. The only thing we were disappointed with was that the sun umbrella on the deck was broken and we were lucky to have brought our travel sun umbrella with us to use on the deck. We will definitely rent this property again!
This cottage is actually a duplex with the owner, Angela, living in the other half. You could not get closer to the beautiful Stinsen Beach. Actually you are on the beach, the water comes almost to the rear deck.
The cottage had sufficient supplies and cooking utensils though I would have added a matching set of dishes. The wood stove was great. It rained almost our entire stay which was fine with us. Only wished the wood we had to use was dry.
We would definitely come back, but this trip we with my son and his wife who stayed in the back bedroom. Someone, during a remodel of the cottage, blocked the bathroom door from the living area forcing those in the master bedroom to enter the back bedroom to use the bathroom. Since I often wake and need to use the bathroom this was uncomfortable for me. This is at most inconvenient and would not stop us from coming back. There are great restaurants in town but at least for lunch they were a little expensive. Definitely try the fish tacos at Parkside Cafe.
Depending on your budget, it is best to bring everything you need with you and do NOT arrive needing fuel for your car.
I have rented many properties on the coast from Carmel to Shelter Cove and between and this cottage is certainly one of the better ones. We will be returning for a summer stay. Thank you Angela.
We had a thoroughly delightful 3-night stay at Angela's cozy and very comfortable cottage on Stinson Beach. It is truly right on the beach! You walk on the sand to get to the deck and front door. My husband and I and our labradoodle dog felt immediately at home. There is a full kitchen, 2 bedrooms, roomy living area, bathroom with shower and an ocean view that goes on forever! We were celebrating a birthday and had wine each day at sunset on the lovely deck which is right on the beach. People watching and dog watching was our spectator sport. And, so much to see in the area: the friendly town of Stinson, Pt Reyes Station (go to the Cowgirl Creamery!), Bolinas (the 60s live on!), Mt. Tam, Muir Woods (awe-inspiring always!) Inverness and on and on. The best part was long walks on the beach each day and seeing our 3-year old labradoodle do joy-jumps the entire length of the beach. It was a magical birthday and Angela is such a lovely lady. She is close by if you need her but so respectful of your privacy. You could not ask for a kinder and more hospitable owner. We thank Angela for making our celebration so memorable. We rent 5 - 6 vacation rentals annually and Angela's cottage has gone to the top of our list of "Must Return Someday Soon"!

Bird Watching very popular at nearby Audubon Canyon Ranch and Bolinas Lagoon - about 1 mile north. Audubon is open to the public at specific times during the year. There are telescopes set up to watch the egrets nesting.
