The new rates will be in effect August 1, 2015 and will apply to all new bookings. Existing reservations will remain at the rate they were booked at.

With kind regards,

Shell Cottage Management"

Why Shell Cottage Management chose The Bay Area

Stinson Beach has been a favorite destination since I was a girl. My children and other relatives have lived in, or visited the town for over 50 years!

What makes this cottage unique

There is a calmness and quiet on the hill above the summer crowds. Also the hillside seems to naturally amplify the sound of the surf!

Beautiful place, thoughtfully decorated, practical and not too touristy. Everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

Nice location easy to get to and just a short walk to the market. The porch is nice and sunny in the morning with a good view of the water. The side yard, although large, was less than inviting being completely covered in rock. The bedrooms were fine and the common rooms were comfortable and accommodating. Overall thoughtfully designed for visitors

Winter Solstice at Stinson

  • 5 of 5

Over the years, my now mid-20s daughter and I have spent many wonderful days and nights at Stinson Beach, and we have our recent stay at Shell Cottage to add to those memories. This clean and cozy, well-appointed cottage is close to town and easy beach access but up the hill just enough to benefit from a quiet and green neighborhood with a great view from the porch and front bedroom. Unseasonably warm weather during two of our days in residence meant that we could breakfast and read on the porch before heading down to the beach or out for a walk, while at night we were happy to curl up on front of the fireplace. Beds are very comfortable and the rest of the cottage instantly feels like home. We left wishing we could've stayed much longer than our three nights and hoping to return soon. Lovely!

Property well located for ocean breeze and ocean view.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed a month at She'll Cottage and found the cottage and the village met my every need. With ocean view from porch and mountain view from bedroom window even an artists ' eye would be satisfied

Wonderful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from Shell Cottage and it was just perfect...The only bad thing about it was we had to leave! My mother-in-law loved the master bedroom and her view of the sea. The whole house was filled with the sounds of the ocean. Thank you very much for letting us stay at your special place.
