  • Sleeps8
  • Bathrooms2
  • Half Baths0
  • Minimum Stay1 - 7 nights

House & Cottage: 2 BDRMS + 2 Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

Sleep to the sound of waves; step onto the sand from your private decks. Spectacular sunsets and oceanfront living. The perfect rustic bungalow with the best location in Stinson Beach - close to town, but not too close. Ours is not a fancy new home, but rather one that has been carefully designed, decorated and outfitted to provide a true Stinson Beach experience. Don't think Cape Cod - our property is inspired by the beauty and culture of Northern California. Outfitted with natural materials with attention to design classics, our home is a celebration of the surroundings. As a family home, this property oozes personality and love and hopefully will inspire our guests as it has for us.

Surf, boogie board, collect sand dollars, take a nap just outside your back door...Walk to unlimited, excellent hiking on Mt. Tamalpais, five minutes walk along the beach to restaurants and shopping. Kayaking and wildlife watching in the beautiful Bolinas Lagoon or visit the Audubon Canyon Ranch and see egrets nesting. Very popular area for biking, too. Or just take the time to soak it all in! This is a place to slow down and relax.

                                                        Amazing place on the beach!

                                                        William J.San Francisco

                                                        Had a great time staying in the main house, amazing views from inside and a great deck right on the beach. Easy walk to downtown as well as a nice kitchen to cook in if that's your style. Booking and stay were very easy as well. We will be staying here again!

                                                        Beautiful Beach House Escape!

                                                        Lynn M.Woodinville Washington

                                                        Such a lovely , quaint and perfect beach house! We had a wonderful time exploring the beach

                                                        and local restaurants! It is a very cozy and comfortable home to spend a long weekend!

                                                        The house is equipped with everything that you need for a wonderful time! I will definitely be back!

                                                        A very inviting & stylish beach retreat!

                                                        Mike W.

                                                        A great place to relax & enjoy the beach life!

                                                        The home was perfect for our group of girls!

                                                        Debbie F.Chico, CA

                                                        The ability to sit on the deck and enjoy the beach was fantastic! We ate all our meals outside and didn't have to pack a beach bag to enjoy the beach :)

                                                        My only thing I would change is the lockbox/key situation. I would put a code pad on the front door like it is on the other two doors.

                                                        Otherwise, an absolutely perfect setup!

                                                        Lori F.

                                                        We loved this house. It is right on the beach and the view from the beach over the house is just as beautiful. We had plenty of towels and the bedding was great. Kitchen had all the necessary amenities. The only thing keeping my review from being five star was the lack of a washer/dryer.

                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                        Thanks so much for renting our property and for this nice review! Unfortunately we have had to discontinue access to our washer and dryer. We have had to repair and replace the unit too many times due to renters putting overly sandy items in it.

                                                        We apologize for the inconvenience.

                                                        amazing weekend in stinson beach

                                                        Lisa F.

                                                        we travelled from Detroit Michigan to meet our daughter who lives in san Francisco.

                                                        The property was far more that I could even imagine.The pictures do not do it any justice.

                                                        It was so spacious and the views were spectacular.The beds and the bedding were so comfortable and luxurious.The kitchen was well equipped.I had everything I needed,The wood burning stove made everything so cozy for the cool evenings We will definitely return with the entire family in the near future.

                                                        Owner's Response:
