Stinson Beach House Rental Photos and Description

Enjoy a vacation away from it all ! Feel renewed and reenergized by the amazing nature that surrounds you. Our house has views of the water on one side and the beauty of the mountains on the other. After a hike or a bike , enjoy a dip in the lagoon, followed by a long hot shower in our outdoor shower. Then it's time for a sunset walk at the beach before dinner.

Our house has 3 bedrooms, The master bedroom has a king bed as does a smaller guest bedroom (which is just big enough for a king size bed and a dresser) and a third with a bunk bed and an extra twin bed. There is also a sleeping loft (with a full size bed) over the living room. This has magical views of the mountains and the lagoon. There is a fully equipped kitchen with two dining areas as well as an outdoor table and chairs.

Our property is in the private gated community of Seadrift only 30 minutes from the golden gate bridge. Feel away from it all without being too far away.

PLEASE NOTE**THIS IS NOT A PARTY HOUSE. Unfortunately, this beach house is not the right choice if your group is planning a gathering beyond the stated guest limit of 8. The neighborhood of Seadrift does not appreciate large or noisy gatherings. As mentioned, this is the PERFECT place for a LOW-KEY, relaxing beach get-away.

Amazing weekend away.

  • 5 of 5

Any chance we get, we love to head up to Stinson for a quick weekend or a longer stay... it is such a nice place to unwind, relax, and have some great family times (dogs included). Staying at Seadrift is a huge treat, the house accommodates all of us adults, kids, and dogs. There is something for everyone - ranging from activities like paddle boarding, kayaking, biking, walking on the beach to reading on the deck to cooking amazing family dinners. We can't wait to get back to Stinson!!

The house was beautiful, roomy and peaceful. The photos don't do it justice.

Our family (6 adults) had more than enough room to spread out and relax, the kitchen was well-equipped, and the location was terrific -- perfect for those of us who wanted to surf, go for a morning run, or head out to point reyes for some oysters. I highly recommend this house. Barbara

Wonderful week in Stinson

  • 5 of 5

Alison's amazing house in Seadrift exceeded our expectations. The Seadrift community is a small paradise with access to various water activities and incredible wildlife.

The house was as advertised, clean and well maintained. When we had a little problem with the electricity Alison's handyman was available immediately.

We would definitely recommend this property to our friends.

For dinning out we highly recommend the Park Side Cafe in Stinson downtown.

Heaven on earth!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't possibly say enough about this property!! Beautiful, lagoon-front, charming home with high ceilings and light streaming in throughout. You can't help but smile. The owners clearly have amazing taste, as it looks as if it were created by an interior designer. Beautifully decorated giving it a charming beach feel, but also boasting top of the line everything. My kids had non-stop fun fishing from the deck, playing on rafts, on paddle boards, on boogie boards, etc. So much fun as a mom to watch the entire family so happy. And not a bad place for mom sip a glass of wine at the end of the day.

Again-- not possible to say enough about this place. You are super lucky if you get to stay here!!

When can we go back?

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at 163 Dipsea for a long weekend. We could not have been happier with the property. It was fully equipped for cooking, family, and fun times. The location was awesome and the scenery was spectacular. I would highly recommend paddle boarding on the lagoon, biking around the Seadrift community, and dog walks on the beach. We will definitely be back soon!

Beach House Sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

Clean, quiet, comfortable, beautiful beach house. Our family of seven adults had plenty of room and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. All the comforts of home plus wonderful amenities including the spectacular deck overlooking the lagoon. Just a short walk from Stinson Beach. Many wonderful hiking trails are close by as well. Alison was very helpful and welcoming. We could not have asked for a more enjoyable and relaxing vacation destination.
