  • Perfect Beach Cottage

    "I can't say enough about this place, my family spent 3 days here in March and had a wonderful time. The cottage itself was perfect, much larger than it looks and so clean and comfortable, felt like home the second you opened the door. We spent lots of time in the back yard just hanging out, kids LOVED the hot tub, and didn't hurt that one of the most beautiful beaches in CA was on our door step. Dealing with Karen, the owner, was also a pleasure, from our first contact to last she was a joy to work with, I honestly felt like we were renting from an old family friend who was genuinely concerned that our stay was perfect and we had everything we needed. I think we will be back :-)"

  • Perfect Place!

    "I just rented the home for the weekend to celebrate my 40th with my friends. The location is perfect to get the beach and be close to the town. The set up in the home is great for many guests and extremely comfortable. Very comfy beds too. It is well equipped with most needed items. The property is gorgeous with lush greenery and privacy. While good, the pictures don't quite do it justice. The property manager Bill is absolutely great and the owner Charles is easy to work with and gets back to you on a timely fashion. I'd easily rent this home again and again. Thank you for such a perfect weekend. We all just loved it."

  • Cozy, Comfortable and Charming! A great place to relax!

    "I drove up on Friday, parked my car and with the exception of a day-jaunt to nearby Bolinas and Pt. Reyes Station, left it parked for the entire week. This home is a wonderful getaway....well equipped and well cared-for. I loved having my morning coffee in the garden with the sounds of the pond and the songs of the local birds and ocean surf in the background. Just a few short steps from the house, is an expansive beach perfect for long walks, or just sitting in the sun. If you want a change of scene, less than a 5 minute walk brings you to the quaint town of Stinson Beach where you can explore local artists' work, browse the wonderful bookstore or eat in one of the local restaurants (The Parkside is a favorite) with menu items supporting nearby farmers, ranchers, and fisherman. In the evenings, I enjoyed cooking in the kitchen. I love to cook, and I found everything I needed to create a great meal. (I especially loved the gourmet stove!) The living room is a wonderful place to kick back by the fire and watch a movie. As I often started my days in the garden, I ended them there as well. Sheltered from the evening sea breeze, it was wonderful to sit by the outdoor fireplace and enjoy the quiet night sky. A hot tub under the stars, followed by a good night sleep in a comfortable bed was just what was needed for a perfect week. I slept in the downstairs bedroom that directly accesses the garden (I did not experience any moldy smell as was mentioned in a previous review) The floor to ceiling windows provided a wonderful view of the lit garden at night as well as the beauty of the first light of day. I would highly recommend this fantastic spot to anyone who needs a change of pace - I can't wait to come back!"

  • Fantastic Beach Retreat

    "The house was just a few steps from the beach. Every morning we at breakfast from the deck of the master bedroom -- the views were spectacular. As mentioned in a few other reviews, the section of Highway 1 from Mill Valley to Stinson Beach is very steep and curvy. It is a good idea to plan excursions to limit needless trips up/down the mountain. Definite worthwhile visits are a day in SanFrancisco as well as Muir woods. Donna, the owner, was very helpful at answering all my questions before our arrival as well as assisting with the wifi connection the first day. I would definitely recommend both the location and house for a nice beach retreat."

Stinson Beach Travel Tips

Stinson Beach Vacation Rentals Are the Way to Unwind

There are so many ways to get creative and have a once-in-a-lifetime vacation. Hotels are so done. They're all the same and the cleanliness is questionable. Hotels are expensive, cramped and it's difficult to get a good-night's sleep in a hotel, no matter how exhausted you are. When staying in a hotel, it's the time when you are the most exhausted and in need of true rest. Many people never consider vacation rental properties, even though they offer pretty much any amenity you want to really get the most out of your time off. VRBO.com makes it easy to look up rental properties and book them.

Stinson Beach Lodging Is Great for Groups

Stinson Beach is probably not a place you've considered vacationing before, but you don't know what you're missing. If you want a big family reunion or even a get together with a group of old friends, a Stinson Beach vacation rental is the way to go. You can book a large beach house with gardens and hot tubs. You can find rentals with room to spread out and a gourmet kitchen to keep everyone fed and comfortable. It's sure to be hit with the whole group. The good times to be had are only limited by your imagination!

Nature and Beauty Abound at Stinson Beach

Stinson Beach is secluded with gorgeous views all around. There's beautiful hiking to be had. Surfing is an option for the wave enthusiasts in your group. It is also located nearby Golden Gate National Recreation Area and Audubon Canyon Ranch for some beautiful nature time. Stinson Beach is also within driving distance of both fabulous San Francisco and scenic wine country. With so much fun to be had, it's a wonder it hasn't been discovered as the next vacation hot spot! San Francisco Bay area travel always makes people happy.
