Bolinas house description

This charming and historic multi-family beach home is perched above the ocean with amazing views of the coastline, surf break, and lights of San Francisco. While removed from the traffic and pedestrian noise of downtown, it's only a 5 minute walk to the main beach and 10 minutes to downtown.

With 5 bedrooms and private parking for 3 cars, this spacious home has enough room to comfortably fit 10 people. The upstairs features a master bedroom with a new king bed and ocean views. The second upstairs bedroom features a new queen bed within earshot of the crashing waves. The downstairs includes three bedrooms - 2 with queen beds and 1 with a bunk bed. In total there are 2 full bathrooms (1 upstairs and 1 downstairs), and 1 3/4 bathroom downstairs as well as a laundry room, 2nd living room / play room and spacious 2nd eat-in kitchen downstairs. Hear the ocean from every room in the house.

While the home's size and quiet neighborhood set it apart, it's really all about the stunning ocean views from the bright and sunny upper living room, the deck, and private lawn. It's truly hard to beat waking to breakfast on the sea and then coming back from the beach in the afternoon without having to leave the ocean behind. The deck has plenty of seating and a new gas grill. The large bright living room is lined with ocean-view windows, has a cozy wood fireplace, and comfortable furniture. The private yard is perfect for an afternoon picnic or letting the kids run around.

We are dedicated to making sure our guests enjoy their stay as much as we do and we take pride in our 5 star rating. The home is older and rustic much like most of the homes in Bolinas, but it's immaculate, the beds are comfortable and luxurious, and it is stocked with everything needed for a fun and relaxing vacation.

Explore the best sleepy beach town in Northern California with more flavor and character than most combined. The house is minutes to the local market, The Coast Cafe (delicious farm to table organic cuisine), Smileys bar (one of the oldest bars in Marin) which features live music every weekend, shops, galleries featuring local artists, and a tennis court that is open to the public on a first come first serve basis.

Excerpt from Marin Independent Journal:
Bolinas is an unincorporated town of 2500 located 30 miles North of San Francisco at the southernmost tip of the Point Reyes National Seashore, surrounded by ocean and well-preserved parkland. Long known for its live and let live attitude, this spirited community of environmentalists, poets, surfers, artists, writers, and aging individualists doesn't have a mayor or a city hall, but its breathtaking scenery, rare wildlife, easy-to-surf waves make Bolinas a perfect destination for weekenders to find a quiet getaway, explore nature, and experience one of California's most culturally unique communities. Just a short drive away is the town of Point Reyes Station and the many local, and amazing oyster farms.

                  Wake up to the sound of the waves crashing, watch the surfers from 180 degree ocean view deck, then take a short walk down to the sleepy downtown for breakfast and walk on the beach. Bird watching, fresh oysters, hiking and biking all at your doorstep.
