Property description

Our newly renovated house is located on one of Stinson's oldest and most well known properties, and the house itself was designed by famous architect Rudolph Schindler. It is surrounded by an absolutely amazing garden, which has been featured on HGTV and in Garden Design magazine. It is located only a stones throw from downtown, as well as the beach - and yet, it is one of the most private, quiet properties in Stinson.

The upstairs of the cottage has two bedrooms, with a TV room in-between which hosts a pullout couch. The Master bedroom has a king bed and a pullout couch while the second bedroom has a full bed. Upstairs is also where the bathroom is located, with a shower and toilet.

Meander through the garden, you may meet someone from our other rental at the top of the garden - if so, say hello and make a new friend! Take a moment and sit by the pond and listen to the frogs, go over to the veggie garden and see what has popped up that you can use for your evening meal - I can almost promise that you will leave this property feeling better than when you came...

This property truly has to be experienced, it is a one of a kind.

Many a beautiful memories have been created here over the decades. Please contact us if you are interested in hosting a wedding or party at our beautiful property. If you would like to have your wedding/party during the high season, we rent this property together with Willow Camp (VRBO#603326) a minimum of one week. Up to 50 guests are included, and for 50-100 guests we charge a venue fee of $2000. During low season we also rent the properties together, and the same rules apply for number of guests, but the minimum rental time is 2 nights.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

Why the Owner Chose Stinson Beach:
We have been connected to Stinson for over a decade, and lived there for half that time, and being in Stinson is to love it. The community, the nature, the ocean - there is no place like it. We always knew this was a very special property, and we feel enormously lucky to be the stewards of such an amazing place with so much history.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
There is no other garden like this in Stinson, and no other place with such deep and long-running history.
