Property description


Are you looking for that spectacular, unforgettable place that you will just not want to leave? The kitchen has a La Cornue stove, fireplace and pizza-oven, a 12 foot door that opens up the whole kitchen to the ocean and let's you step out onto a deck that feels like an extension of the kitchen.

Walk down a few steps and enjoy the fire pit on the stone deck surrounded by flowers and the largest aloe plant you have ever seen. Enjoy your morning coffee or evening drink in the hot tub while watching the stars or the west Marin coast line and Pacific Ocean. The kids will have plenty of fun in the play house, in the sand box or on the swing set - or down at the beach which you reach through a private walkway in only 2 minutes.

A favorite ritual in the morning will surely be taking the 5 minute walk to picturesque downtown Stinson Beach, get a coffee at the coffee stand and a newspaper at the market and either sit down on the bench and chat with the bikers and other coffee drinkers or bring it back home and put your feet up and marvel at the beauty of the ocean.

The main house has 3 bedrooms and two baths on the second floor. Wake up in the king bed in the master bedroom, look to the West and see the ocean or look to the East and watch the morning fog lifting from the hills. Enjoy the evening in the beautiful sun room over looking the ocean or go out on the balcony with a glass of wine and a chess set and let the sound of the waves calm your soul. For a perfect day, light a fire in the fire place before you crawl into bed with a good book. The second bedroom offers a queen bed and access to a balcony facing the hills, while the third bedroom faces the ocean and has a twin bed with a trundle.

Only steps away, the cottage offers two more bedrooms - one with a queen bed and one with two bunk-beds (4 beds) as well as a full bath.
