Located 30 minutes north of San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge, the 'Shell Cottage' is a short walk to the Beach and enjoys access to Hiking Trails in the Mount Tamalpais Foothills - 2 bedrooms have queen beds with a twin bed in loft. Cottage can comfortably accomodate 4 adults and 2 children. Cottage sits in a peaceful Stinson hillside neighborhood with views of Ocean and Mt.

Dear new & returning guests,

Due to the recent enforcement enhancement of Marin County's 10% hotel occupancy tax (this applies to vacation rentals as well) we will need to increase nightly/weekly rental rates by 10 precent. 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"

Hi-Season ($210 per night) is 6/01 to 8/31 - during this period we require a 7 night minimum and require a Saturday arrival and Saturday Departure.

The week of Thanksgiving is always a 7 night minimum at Standard Rates ($193 per night).

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!

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.

Shell Cottage

  • 4 of 5

What a perfect place to experience the best of California even in drought conditions. Views of the beach and the Mount Tam behind the house negate need for postcard buying as your camera will give you everything you need. Quiet is interrupted only by the surf and night skies allowed viewing meteor showers and moonrises and sunsets that were picture perfect. I will book again.

Shell Cottage was idyllic

  • 5 of 5

Shell Cottage, though small and simple, had everything we needed for our family to have relaxing, special Stinson stay. We hope to come back again soon!
