            This was such an incredible house to stay at! It's so close to downtown (and a lovely walk to and from) so access to the store (amazing selection of cheese!) and the local bar (delicious clam chowder). The house itself is beautiful, comfortable and has the most amazing views from BOTH decks. The kitchen was an absolute delight to use (and well stocked) and the master bedroom a wonderful, romantic haven. It was definitely a lot of room for only two people, but we loved it. Definitely planning on coming back! Thank you for a wonderful Valetine's weekend, Jennifer!

            I loved staying here because of the views and the sunshine. There were many places in the house to sit and soak it all in- The living room, tv room, bedroom, and patios. It seemed like there was seating everywhere, and it was all very comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked and the bedding provided was very nice. I liked the sea-themed decor for its playfulness and color.

            This home has a wonderful sunset view! My favorite spot to relax was sitting on the lower deck overlooking the Pacific, ideal! Located walking distance from the beach, downtown Stinson Beach and trailheads, we didn't need to get in our car all week. We love to cook so were pleased with the well appointed kitchen, gas BBQ and local grocery store. The bedroom is light with windows looking up to Mt. Tam and sliding door out to the upper deck with ocean view. Our 2 boys stayed in the open loft room with twin beds. Amenities include 2 bathrooms, laundry, WiFi, TV/sound system, lovely back yard... We recommend this home to anyone who wants to spend time at Stinson Beach. We will definitely stay here again some day. The owners are friendly and helped to make our stay a pleasure, thanks!

            Our fourth stay at this gem of a vacation rental. The house is always very clean and welcoming. Amazing views when the sun is out, warm & cozy when the fog is in. Can't wait to go back next year!

            The house was perfect! Clean, modern, comfortable, views...everything you could need and ask for. Master bed was very comfortable. Fold out sofa bed in living room made for a great additional bedroom for my father in-law. Views from decks are stunning! I loved the open layout. Easy parking for many cars. Would love to stay again.

            This house is perfect for a little "weekend" getaway--very comfortable no matter what the weather, as there is a fireplace stove adjoining the kitchen. For the price, though, it would have been nice to have had an ironing board and a decent iron (we found only a very small iron that didn't work very well). Also, make sure you bring your own soap and don't forget shampoo, as you won't find any of these small but appreciated amenities in the house. (There was a small bottle of conditioner, though!) Also, I wouldn't suggest this house for elderly people, or those who have trouble with stairs, as the stairway up to the house is pretty lengthy and steep.

            Our stay at Stinson Beach was awesome. We used this as a base to explore San Francisco and parts north. The drive into Stinson Beach, although not for the faint of heart, is incredibly scenic. The smaller beach community atmosphere of this area was really nice. The open concept of this house worked well for our family. We really liked the layout of this home and it was very well kept and clean. We would highly recommend this rental for anyone who likes to stay in a quieter, adventurous, smaller community while still having access to a large city only 40 min away.

            We spent a lovely 8 days at this beautifully designed modern beach house. The layout of the house and appointments are top notch; the windows are airtight and kept the house very comfortable in the evenings. The sight and sound of the ocean are ever present – views abound from every single room in the house. Did I mention the back garden of wildflowers and rosemary? We enjoyed the decks with direct ocean views in the afternoon and having our coffee in front of the fireplace in the morning. My husband, a top chef, found the kitchen extremely well equipped. Hooray for the wine stopper! Our three young children had a blast blowing bubbles on the deck. The walk to town was invigorating and the market was quite impressive for its size. The organic chicken, local cheese/ice cream, and coal-stove bread were big hits. The surrounding area is remarkably beautiful. The plush green mountainous region leads directly up to the crescent shape of Stinson Beach. Even in the rolling evening fog, the area is beautiful. We hope to return to this house next year.

            Owner response: Thanks, glad you enjoyed your stay, it even sounded like I wanted to be there with you. The market has some good specialty items and the fresh bread delivery is wonderful. Please do come back!

            The house was a wonderful way to spend a few days away from the hustle and bustle of life. The master bed and bath is great. The views from the deck is great both ocean and mountain. The weekend we chose turned out to be a great hiking weekend, and the house and the Stinson Beach location turned out to both be a great location for that. After hiking we came back to great sunset views drinking some wine bought at the liltte (but good) local grocery store. We didn't eat in, but the kitchen is fully stocked with utencils,etc if we had been so inclined. Instead we ate out at the 3 local restaureants for dinner (note to others; they will be crowded in the summer I am sure, as they were pretty full in Feb) The only snag for others might be (not us..we liked it) that the house is up a fairly steep hill, for walking, from town. Not a problem for us, but could be for others. Overall, we loved the house very much, and will be back, hopefully for a longer stay, and hopefully with the same brilliant weather Thanks for opening it up!!

            We are just wrapping up our three night stay at this property. Having done VRBO now in several cities (Park City, Amsterdam, Amalfi and now Stinson), this rates as one of our best experiences! The house was immaculate. Everything is in working order and upgraded for gourmet dining, relaxing, easy jaunts to town and more. The king bed is EXTREMELY comfortable (felt like our brand new bed we just splurged on a few months ago at home!). I would come back here in a heartbeat and would highly recommend to friends. My favorite part - waking up and looking right over my toes at the Pacific through the windows :)

            Recommended for: Romantic getaway, families with young children.

            Owner response: That is such a lovely thing to say. We love the house and are blessed to be able to share it with others. So glad you enjoyed your stay and Happy Thanksgiving to you and the family.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2006

          About the owner: My husband and I purchased the lot in 2005 with excitement beyond belief. We actively started designing around some very strick guidelines and restrictions. In the end I believe we achieved a very nice product with his building skills and my artistic talents. You'll find unusual details throughout the home and my paintings on the walls.

          Why the Owner Chose Stinson Beach:
          We built our home at Stinson beach in 2005. Stinson Beach was a natural choice and had a long history for our families. My husband and I grew up going to Stinson either after school, with our families for holiday, and then later for family reunions bringing our kids. There is so much to do- walk/run the beach, swim, surf- board or body, sunbath, hike the fabulous trails, kayak the lagoon, relax, and the list goes on. We feel very fortunate to have found this lot with the ability to build a simple but stylish home that serves many travelers.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          The beauty of the beach, the sound of the waves crashing, the intimate neighborhood community, close to town for a stroll to dinner, near the town market, fabulous sunsets. You get the best of both worlds that Stinson has to offer- the beach but also the mountain!! The famed Dipsea Trail, majestic Matt Davis Trail just outside our door. Gorgeous sunsets, collecting shells, flying kites, building sand castles...............
