The Bay Area House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Our magical Stinson Beach house is a peaceful retreat from work and the city, but in perfect reach of San Francisco. Four bedrooms and three baths including one kids room is the perfect place to relax, recharge by yourself or with the family.

Our house is completely renovated on a quiet beach side patio. We are one row of houses back from the beach, so you can hear the waves crash on the beach and it will take you just 1 minute to walk onto the beach from the house.

Inside, you'll find all the comforts of home, including the fastest internet access we could get in Stinson Beach (sorry, it's not that fast, about 6mb, but just enough for streaming HD). The kitchen was equipped by a Cordon-Bleu trained chef and all the furnishing are up to date.

We're committed to keeping our carbon footprint small. Every bulb in the house is either CFL or LED. Power is primarily provided by solar panels on the roof.

About The Owner

Two dads with our two little boys. We live in Silicon Valley and this our weekend getaway. We bought and completely renovated this place in 2013 and now we're making it available to share. We hope you love it as much as we do.

The Owner purchased this house in 2013

Why The Owner chose The Bay Area

For many many years, one of the dads has been begging the other to get a beach place. This is what victory looks like.

What makes this house unique

You can hear the waves crashing on the beach while you lie in bed at night. It is the single most relaxing sound on earth.

Wonderfully updated and definitely peaceful

  • 5 of 5

There were 8 of us at the house and we had plenty of space to enjoy cooking together, dining together and binge-watching Netflix together in the wonderful upstairs common area. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms are nicely updated and modern. The outdoor living space is large and very nicely manicured/ landscaped. Great views of Mt. Tam, too!

We loved our time together in this home.

Perfect Location of Families

  • 5 of 5

We had a marvelous time at this spacious and wonderful home. The kitchen had everything we needed for a family of 5 who likes to cook. There is so much to do in the area. The beach is really close and the hot tub, barbecue and yard were great.

The four bedrooms are large with comfortable linens. We did not lack for any amenities.

We would love to stay there again in the future!

Clean orderly great location and nice beds!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this property for 4 nights. It is wonderfully located- near enough the beach. The yard itself is private with a hot tub! We stayed during rainy season but it was still so beautiful and we could walk to town when the tide was low along the beach- or during high tide, along the streets.

The home was plenty big enough. I do wonder why 10 isn't acceptable for an overnight visit as there were enough beds.

The kitchen was easy to navigate and wonderful to cook and share meals.

I had to get used to throwing food trash into the garbage. We generally compost at home into the green bins provided by the city.

The beds have beautiful linens and were very comfortable. We would definitely stay again.

Perfect Holiday Getaway for Our Family

  • 5 of 5

My extended family of 8 had a truly lovely and comfortable stay in this gracious home. The owners made everything easy and comfortable for our stay. The chef's kitchen was stocked with all the pots/pans/dishes/silverware and utensils we needed to prepare our meals for our large family. The kitchen/dining/living room area was wonderful as we could all hang out and relax in the same area - while some of us cooked - others watched television and/or read books but we were still all together. The 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths were all very spacious and had plenty of linens/towels/beach towels. The hot tub was perfect temperature and we enjoyed it very much. The grounds were beautifully landscaped. And it was wonderful to take a short stroll and have access to the beach in a matter of minutes. We have had family/friends visit us in Stinson and rent other properties in the past, but this rental was truly perfect! We will definitely rent again. Thanks so much!

Excellent All Around

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two young kids, and I had a fantastic time at this house. The house was sparkling clean and had all the amenities you could ask for. The beach was literally steps away, beautiful, and almost empty. We got lots of enjoyment out of the hot tub and hanging out in the yard! I also must give high praise to the owners. It turns out that I completely messed up our return date home. Long story short, I brought the whole crew to the airport only to learn that our flight was scheduled for the next day. Even though it was a Sunday and last minute notice, Paul responded immediately to my pleas for help and enabled me to stay at the house for one additional night at a reduced rate. We were so grateful!

Perfect Getaway for Families.

  • 5 of 5

I have the best memories of going to Stinson Beach as a child and wanted to take my own kids. I initially booked this home because we wanted someplace to accommodate a larger group and a lot of the other beach-side rentals had 2 bedrooms or less. This house exceeded all our expectations. Every room is thoughtfully and simply furnished. It is gorgeous, clean and modern without losing it beachy charm. The pictures do not do the courtyard justice. It is so thoughtfully designed with separate areas for the hot tub, BBQ, sandboxes, even a volleyball court. Its hard to keep little kids at the beach all day so we spent many hours outside in the courtyard which is just a short stroll to the beach itself.

We are counting down the days to when we can return. With of without kids this is the perfect beach rental.
