Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

A large, private, three bedroom, two bath, house with magnificent views of the Pacific Ocean. Each bedroom is luxuriously appointed. The living room and dining area have a truly incredible six window view of the Pacific with white water waves crashing over exposed rocks. The house has a fireplace and two wood stoves, a well equipped kitchen and a large deck for enjoying the sunset. In addition to the three bedrooms is a cozy loft and quiet areas to read and relax.

You'll be a five minute walk to lovely Agate Beach, part of the Duxbury Reef Preserve. There you will find access to the Pacific Ocean, a quiet beach area and tide pools perfect for nature explorers of all ages. Nearby is also Bolinas Beach, a great place to play in the sand or take a surfing lesson from the Bolinas Surf School. A short drive by car is Stinson Beach and Point Reyes.

Close at hand are some incredible walks along the coast, including some trails into the southern end of Point Reyes National Seashore. During your stay you can also explore historic Bolinas. Founded in the 1850's, Bolinas has long served as a weekend getaway for San Franciscans, though in earlier times they would arrive by boat. Bolinas remains a great retreat and maintains a local culture shaped by the 1960's counter-culture movement.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Heather, we had a wonderful time. The house was comfortable & well

stocked. We bought crabs off the boats, oysters at Tomales Bay & went

clamming. Our meal on Saturday night included fresh cracked crab, steamed

clams, prime rib, & barbecued oysters. The children were thrilled & thanks for

providing the high chair. Could hardly keep Anaya, grandchild, out of it. We

were delighted with the food, amazing views & sleeping arrangements. I have

recommended the house to friends & hope to find time to stay there again in

the future. Thanks for the experience & the quality time my family had

together. We also had a ping pong competition. Unfortunately I lost."

Perfect quiet retreat for our family

  • 5 of 5

Heather was great to work with - very responsive. The house had a good layout with a bedroom and bath downstairs for the parents and 2 bedrooms and bath on the main floor, plus a little loft. Great week with our teenagers going hiking up Mt Tam, Muir Woods and Point Reyes. relaxing to sit at the house and read a book. Dinner at Coast Cafe was surprisingly good. Beautiful views!

This house has everything!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and has an amazing view of the ocean. We were most impressed with how equipped it was! The kitchen has everything: gas BBQ, coffee maker, coffee GRINDER, blender, mixer, toaster, salad spinner, mixing bowls, grater, lots of plates, glasses, even many staples, spices, and condiments. Three bedrooms--we got the king bed on the ground floor with the view of the ocean--beautiful scene to wake up to. There are books, games, and DVDs to watch. We were three couples and had a wonderful time. We cooked most meals and really enjoyed ourselves.

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Bolinas House in May. It was a great secluded location with Pacific Ocean in view. The living room has large windows for wonderful views while relaxing or eating. Great patio/deck space. There was more than enough space for 6 which included 2 young children. You can go on many walks and jogs through Bolinas including to the downtown area and beach. The home is well equipped for cooking and grilling. We stopped by a local farmers market on the road into town, it was wonderful. There were accommodations for an infant/toddler. We would love to stay here again!

Wonderful House Perched Above The Pacific

  • 5 of 5

My family has stayed in this beautiful place for the past twelve years. It is surrounded on three sides by decking, with a large and comfortable area for outdoor dining. We love the woodstove in the upper level, living and dining rooms with huge windows and ocean views. The main level has a kitchen and long counter, a comfy sitting area with a fireplace, two bedrooms, full bath (tub/shower) and a loft, loved by the grandson since he could climb the ladder. The lower area is an independent suite, which we rent, with its own wood stove and full bath. The kitchen is well-furnished, sunny with skylights, and opens onto the deck. Ping pong in the basement.

This house is in the quietest end of Bolinas, except for the lovely rhythm of the ocean breaking below. Agate Beach, a short five-minute walk, is the most amazing spectacle at low tide. You can follow the beach either into town, Brighton Beach, or north toward RCA Beach. Both are good hikes, two to three miles.

After twelve years, we still have not hiked all the trails in Point Reyes National Park!

Bolinas House is not a chi-chi Architecture Digest place. The furniture is upholstered, tasteful and functional; nice carpeting and flooring, good beds. It is inviting and comfortable, marvelous, even, because of its beauty of setting.

Heather is a terrific owner, and very responsive to any suggestion we make.

This family loves the house and are grateful to have it available.

location, view and comfort

  • 5 of 5

The view from the place is amazing and the house has just the right vibe for a Bolinas beach pad. Beds were firm and comfortable.
