Stinson Beach house description

30 minutes from the Golden Gate, Stinson Beach is the largest stretch of clean white sand beach in Northern California with a micro-climate that provides great weather most of the year.
Come, relax and enjoy!

Stroll from your door to the beach or town for shopping and wonderful restaurants; hang at the park; hike/bike the beautiful trails on Mount Tamalpais and never move your car!

'Wits End' is a comfortable, clean and cheerful 3 bedroom cottage on a quiet sandy lane 5 houses from the beach. The house is on a large private lot complete with ample windless deck space, a covered deck with dinner seating for 6, a warm outdoor shower to clean off from the beach, patio space in a butterfly garden, parking for 3+ cars and so much more. An easy family house.

The house is a contemporary cedar log house that is bright and well equipped. The master bedroom has a queen bed and a flat panel TV. The second bedroom has a queen bed and sounds of the ocean and a flat panel TV. The third bedroom has a twin over double bunk with individual reading lights as well as books/TV/DVD/VCR with many kid friendly movies. The living room also has a large selection of games, books and DVDs. Perfect for families, extended family, 2 families, or anyone looking to feel like they’ve gotten away from it all. Oh...and don’t forget to ask us about some of 'Wits Ends' interesting history!

For the kids, a playhouse stocked with sand toys, a sand area and tree swing are located in a gated area next to the house so you can relax while the kids play. We added a warm water outdoor shower to make the transition from the beach enjoyable!
'Wits End' is set up to enjoy indoor/outdoor living at its best.

Lastly, In case you can’t leave work at home or just want to be connected, 'Wits End' is setup with WiFi (so at least...if you have to...you can work outisde on a lounge chair!).

Pets only with a signed pet agreement for $15/day.

House can sleep up to 4 adults/3 children with kids, 5 adults with up to 1 child. There is room for a pack-n-play for an additional child.

                  Year Purchased: 1998

                  Why the Owner Chose Stinson Beach:
                  After years of renting in the gated community of Seadrift, we booked a last minute stay down this street and found out what a great location this is. Close enough to park your car and never move it. Just walk to everything! A couple of houses down to the beach with kids or to run down to see a sunset. No long walks to get to a path to the beach like we used to have. You can even get to the hiking trails by just walking to town. After driving all week, doesn't that sound nice?

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Guests tell us that the cedar log style makes them feel like they've gotten away because it's so different from home. The logs are softly white washed with ample skylights so its clean and bright. The house is surrounded by gardens to the front, sides and back with something always blooming. The back of the house offers two types of decks - the deck outside the back door is covered and shaded, while the upper deck is sunny with lots of wind protection so even if the beach is too breezy, you can lay in a lounge chair on the upper deck, hear the ocean, see the surrounding hills and enjoy the warmth of the sun.
