Bolinas House Rental Photos and Description

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."

a beautiful seaside retreat

  • 5 of 5

The house is spacious, the sleeping accommodations plentiful, the kitchen well-equipped, but the real attraction is the 180-degree ocean views.

Magical Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We only stayed for two nights but wished we had time to stay longer. The location was just perfect. It felt very remote but was close to the cute little town center of Bolinas. And the views are even better than on the pictures :) We walked to Agate beach and the kids had a lot of fun exploring the tide pools, then we cooked vegetables we got from the little honor-system farm stand outside of Bolinas. What a treat. The kitchen was well equipped to cook nice meals and the house itself was just very comfortable. The wood fireplace was such a nice addition. So was the little loft! Our kids would sit up there reading books most of the time, saying: its so cozy!

The property owner was very friendly and easy to communicate with.

We will definitely be back!

Magnificent Ocean View does not disappoint

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house for a small group of people. It has space to find quiet moments and spaces to come together for meals prepared in the well equipped kitchen. The view from the house is spectacular when the sun comes out. The walk to nearby Agate Beach is nice. The sound of the waves varies with the ocean's mood but one night it "rocked us all night long."
