About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 1.5 Baths, Ocean Front (Sleeps 7-8)

Fantastic Location!


Just steps from the beach and a short walk to town, the Red House is a classic two story beach house that has evolved over the years into the cozy home it is today. Never perfect. Always authentic.

The Red House has a generous layout with places to gather and spaces to call your own. The first level features an entryway and spacious living room with ocean views and comfy couches for tv watching and socializing. There is a knotty pine den with an old river stone fireplace (now gas), books, puzzles, games and another nap-worthy sofa. Cooks and guests alike will enjoy the bright kitchen with its attached eating area. The well-equipped kitchen has a butcher block island, gas cook-top, microwave, convection oven, ultra-quiet dishwasher, and a new refrigerator with filtered water and ice dispenser. The dining table and banquette seat 10.

Off the dining area is a deck with two round tables, a gas BBQ, plus a charcoal Weber kettle grill. The fenced-in yard has ample space to safely relax, play, and clean off with two outdoor showers.

A large full bath with shower over tub and the snug bunk room are also on the first level. The upstairs level features two master bedrooms with sitting areas and a shared half bath. The upper deck is the prime location for happy hour/s. It is a favorite feature of the house for its unobstructed views of Stinson Beach to the Bolinas Mesa and Mt. Tam. A perfect place for lounging, people-watching, or just "taking it all in".

Sleeping: The bunk room has double with twin over. Both masters have queen beds. There are two full sized couches. Linens and bath towels are provided. B.Y.O.B...beach towels that is!

Owner info

About the owner: Hello, I'm Rollin. I will be your host, contact person, & repairman if necessary. The Red House has been offered as a vacation rental for more than 20 years. We sold 'The Red House' on Stinson Beach in 2015 to a new family(Russ & Beth Silvestri). They have decided to pick up the baton and run with it. They have been upgrading and decorating and the home looks great! I'll be around for a while helping with the transition. Enjoy your stay!!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Unique benefits??? To start with the fantastic location. Rustic charm with modern amenities. The wonderful upper and lower decks. Warm front room with the great ocean views. Cozy Den with gas fireplace. Whatever the weather a good time is assured.
