The Bay Area 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.

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.

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights at this wonderful home in mid October and had a fantastic time. The home itself was quite spacious and well appointed with everything we needed for a nice and relaxing stay. Our kids loved sleeping in the loft above the entry way as it was there own little escape and kind of like a nightly campout. The location on the lagoon couldn't have been more beautiful and peaceful--we ended up renting paddle boards (Donny at Stinson Beach Surf & Kayak will actually deliver them and pick them up when you are done) and went up and down the lagoon with the kids. We had never paddle boarded before and it was just a blast. At the end of the day thought, our favorite part was being so close to the beach. We went on numerous walks with the kids and the dog and could have stayed at the beach forever!

The owner, Allison, was easy to deal with (all via email) and we certainly plan on returning again soon.

October Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My adult family of 6 recently stayed at this lovely 'beach house'. Light and airy, with a warm and open layout - the house exudes charm! Both inside and out, the house is tastefully decorated and very well maintained.

As reviewed by others this is a perfect family house with all the bells and whistles for kids. It offers numerous sleeping options. (some quite cozy) The master is large and tastefully decorated facing the lagoon. The extra 1/2 bath was an added convenience.

This home's ideal location is perfect for bike riding, walking, bird watching and has reasonably close access to beach. Having stayed at Stinson numerous times there is always something magical with each visit. This stay was no exception.

The owner is friendly and very accommodating. I highly recommend this house you won't be disappointed!

Well-nigh perfect lagoon house.

  • 5 of 5

The second time we stayed here was as agreeable as the first. The house is maintained well and offers an unusual degree of comfort, light and spaciousness. Still great for kids!

We love this house!

  • 5 of 5

My family has stayed in this house twice now, and it is great. The main room is open and airy and full of comfortable places to sit or lie, reading, chatting, playing games. The kitchen is well-equipped (except could use some non-stick pans...) and opens onto both dining area and living areas. Back deck and lagoon access both good, and we made good use of the kayak. The location in Sea Drift is really nice, tucked between the internal lagoon and Bolinas lagoon and an easy walk or bike ride to the beach.
