Charming Stinson Beach House - Steps from the Ocean

Bedrooms 1
Space 800 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

Steps from the beach, this peaceful Stinson Beach house is the perfect getaway.

This charming and unique house is only 500 feet from the beach yet offers peace and privacy.

A 30s Craftsman with original fir floors and a wood burning stove fireplace, the main house is approximately 720 square feet and has been lovingly maintained and updated with modern nautical decor. The house has one bedroom and one bathroom with queen size bed, an airy living room with pull-out sofa (the second bed), dining area and full kitchen.

A separate cottage is a garage space with washer, dryer and beach items (towels, wetsuits, chairs, picnic basket, etc).

Amenities include flat screen televisions loaded with Apple TV , a landline with free calls in the US, coffee, tea and small breakfast items, and board games for nights at home.

Beds provided are as follows:

1 queen size bed in bedroom

1 full/queen size pullout sofa in living room

We do have a Pack N Play crib as well as an air mattress on hand and can accommodate up to 5 people if 1 or more are children. Off-street parking for two cars is available within the property (although we often like to park directly across the street and leave the garden open).

Less than an hour's drive from San Francisco and on the edge of Mt Tamalpais State Park, the Stinson Beach House is a perfect year round spot for romantic weekends, families and weekend escapes. Conveniently located from Sausalito and Marin, Stinson Beach is a great starting off point for exploring spots like Muir Woods, Mt Tamalpais, Bolinas, Point Reyes, Tomales Bay, Muir Beach and much more.

No smoking and no pets allowed on the property.

About Tanya Naouri

A native of southern California, the Bay Area is now home for myself, my husband and our two small children. I love living here and am happy for others to experience the abundant natural beauty of Stinson Beach and West Marin.

Tanya Naouri purchased this house in 2014

Why Tanya Naouri chose Stinson Beach

With its sandy shores and the backdrop of Mt Tamalpais, we love the unique beauty and local flavor of Stinson Beach. It's the perfect getaway for international travelers and local Bay Area dwellers alike.

What makes this house unique

With its enclosed bricked English style garden, the Stinson Beach House feels like your own private oasis, while still remaining close to the beach and town. We've infused the original Craftsman charm of the house with modern nautical decor.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A beautiful place to stay, clean and well presented. The location is fabulous, with the beach just a couple of minutes walk away and access to a couple of mountain trails within 10 minutes walk. Great place to stay which we hope to return to.

Darling cottage just right for small family

  • 5 of 5

We loved this sweet place that felt like it perfectly reflected the Stinson Beach vibe. Appreciated the large bedroom that we were able to fit two pack n plays in. Loved the wood-burning fireplace and the room heaters. Our friends rented other places and said they didn’t have heaters so this may be a rare perk! The space was clean and tidy and had games and magazines. Kitchen was well stocked (no dishwasher though) and there were even granola bars and a bit of coffee which was so nice. Will definitely stay here again!

Cute cottage, simply lovely!

  • 5 of 5

We have enjoyed our weekend at the cottage near Stinson beach it was quiet and peaceful and the wood-burning stove kept us warm. Cottage is cared for and adorable. The bed was super comfy and we enjoyed relaxing on the patio. We can hear the waves at night with the window open. Thank you!

Great location! Spacious, well-equipped, quiet and relaxing place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our 3 night stay at Stinson Beach. Easy access to the beautiful beach where we swam with seals, and also very close to start of walking trails for spectacular views. The house has everything you need with lots of thoughtful touches. Tanya also gave us lots of useful information before our arrival which made the whole trip relaxing and easy going. Just what we needed! Thank you

Tastefully appointed, very comfortable!

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay. The house was very comfortable and well-stocked. Lots of attention to small details were appreciated. Only downside is the steep cleaning fee, especially when it's just a night or two stay but I know this is common with many of the VRBO properties.

Sweet, well-appointed cottage makes for a great beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This great little beach cottage in a perfect location is a gem, and just as described. It was bright, inviting, comfortable, aesthetically pleasing, and completely enjoyable for our family of four. Tanya has impressive attention to detail. It’s a sweet, charming place that’s quiet and peaceful (you can hear the ocean) and you immediately feel right at home. The house is equipped with everything you could need for a relaxing vacation, and the beach is an easy 1-2 block walk from the front door. It boasts nice amenities, including a washer/dryer, Apple TV, ping pong table, games, towels, etc. The driveway is indeed tight, but a lifesaver over the busy holiday weekend. We had a wonderful stay and can't wait to come back!

Perfect beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four adored this lovely, cozy, chic, and well-appointed cottage. It's a gem that is a three-minute walk from the beach, and we did NOT want to leave.
