About Elly Drosihn

My husband and I have 7 children and 13 grandchildren. The property has been the scene of many happy camping parties, weddings, birthday parties and gatherings.

Elly Drosihn purchased this Studio in 1999

Why Elly Drosihn chose Stinson Beach

The Dipsea Gazebo is a lovely spot of tranquility in a setting of great beauty and flexibility. The gated compound provides privacy to a couple of two or party of family and friends of 200. The access to the beach and the town is a short walk through parkland. Lawns and gardens with brilliant ocean views accommodate different settings for events. The views from the property are spectacular.

What makes this Studio unique

We love to share this beautiful setting with those who will appreciate the dramatic draw of the ocean , hiking the mountain, or a celebration with friends and family.

                                                                This was a perfect getaway for my husband’s birthday. Hiking, walking on the beach, sunset in the hot tub, and s’more by the fire; We’ll definitely be back.

                                                                A truly magical weekend!

                                                                My husband and I got married at Dipsea Gardens last weekend and could not have asked for a more magical time. Friends and family were in awe by the beauty and careful detail that Elly and John have put into the property. There were a myriad of gorgeous flowers in bloom and our nieces and nephews were excited to see so many hummingbirds and butterflies during their time there. Our stay in the gazebo was one of the most romantic times we've ever had, and Elly and John have equipped it with bathrobes and other additions to make it feel truly special. Moreover, Elly and John were extremely kind, friendly and warm, and were receptive to the various ideas we had for our wedding. They could not have made the planning process any easier. Thank you for creating such a spectacular space and opening your magical home to us!

                                                                My experience was a unique situation because we had a large wedding event but we and families did all the work for it. It was beautiful but just hard to enjoy with our situation. I wish I would have done things differently. As far as a large event it didn't accomadate for trash I thought that maybe there was big trash bins or I would have bought some to take with us to put out. Also we did have a check out at 11 am but were still cleaning up because there was a lot of stuff because it was a large wedding and there was another event booked already the next at 12? Which made things a little stressful but we got it all done and taken care of as fast as we could. Definitely a better location for honeymoon or small intimate wedding. Gorgeous property

                                                                Will keep coming back for the rest of our lives

                                                                Very intimate space, but property is large enough to explore. We spent time in each part of it and explored the gardens extensively. Gazebo is perfect for 2. Small walk into town - easy access to all stores and restaurants.

                                                                A perfect place to get married!

                                                                I can't say enough about Elly and Joe's property- it is absolutely stunning. The gardens our well manicured with great amenities and the arrival/close up is easy and straight forward. We had a small 32 person wedding here and it was perfect for us! We were able to have the ceremony and cocktail hour on the lower level and dinner and dancing on the upper level. Then, we were able to spend our honeymoon night in the gazebo with the hot tub overlooking the ocean. Our guests enjoyed the night and views just as much as we did. The weather was stunning and we saw shooting stars all night long. It was a perfect place to get married and it gives us some place to re-visit in the future. Thank you so much Elly and Joe- you made our wedding so special.
