Classic two-story beach house
One lot off the beach and a short walk to town, The Red House is a well-maintained Stinson home built in the 1930s with original details and updated amenities.
The hospitable Red House offers a generous layout with places to gather, and spaces to call your own.
The first level features an entryway, a light-filled and spacious sunken living room with ocean views, comfortable seating, ultra-HDTV with Apple TV, Blu-ray Disc player with built-in wireless, and access to an outdoor deck. There is a cozy den with an old stone fireplace (now gas), books, puzzles, games, and more comfy seating.
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, quiet dishwasher, oven, and a full-sized refrigerator with filtered water and ice dispenser. A custom dining table with banquette seating accommodates 8-10. A bright full bathroom, with shower over tub and skylight, completes the first level.
Up three stairs to the first landing is a snug bedroom with a double bed and a lofted single bed. Follow eight old-fashioned (i.e., steep) steps to the second floor and find two large ocean view bedrooms that share a skylight-filled half bath with ocean views. Aptly named the Sunrise Room and the Sunset Room, each bedroom hosts a sitting area—a perfect perch to enjoy the view and sound of the surf.
The upper deck off the Sunrise Room is a favorite feature of the house for its unobstructed views of Stinson Beach, from Bolinas to the foothills of Mt. Tam, and on a clear day - - the Farallon Islands. The upper deck is an ideal place, from morning to night, for lounging and taking it all in.
Off the living room and dining area is another deck with a teak dining table, umbrella and eight chairs. There are two BBQ options - a propane grill and a charcoal kettle grill.
The completely fenced-in sandy yard wraps around the home and offers ample space to relax and play. Several Adirondack chairs surround a ring of succulent plants. To clean off outside, there are two shower options (one open shower and one conveniently located private shower with hot water for year-round use).
This well-loved Red House is a welcoming spot in the wonderful community of Stinson Beach, California — a place to call your home for a weekend or a week.

Parking: dedicated street parking for 3 cars in front of the home. One block south to public parking lot and Stinson Village.

The Red House is the best house!
Loved our time in the Red House. Beth was very accommodating and responsive with our request for a late check out. The property is in great shape and updated, plus it's right on the beach so my kids would be playing on the beach and I was getting something together in the back yard and still was able to keep an eye on them. The weather on one of the days was bad but with such a great place and view it didn't seem like a loss.
Would definitely recommend this place to stay for anyone looking for a break and needing to unplug.
Perfect Stinson Get Away
The Red House at Stinson was the perfect get away for our family of 4 (including two teenagers). It is beautiful, clean, cozy and comfortable, without being overly fancy. We immediately felt at home upon arrival.
Everything we needed was there for us. From the well equipped kitchen, to extra sheets, to games/movies, beach toys, laundry, 2 grills, alarm clocks in every room with phone chargers. Beth has thought of everything and could not have been more attentive. There is amble space to be together or have alone time. We will definitely be back!! Thank you Beth!
Absolutely Perfect Family Spot
We stayed at The Red House for 3 nights in April with our 4 kids (ages 8,8,8, and 2). It could not have been more comfortable and better appointed for our needs. The amenities were top-notch, the beds super comfy, the kitchen nice and roomy, all while being mere steps from the beach. Beautiful ocean views from virtually every room....nothing like sipping your coffee on a comfy couch watching the sun come up over the ocean. We cannot wait to come back. I would highly recommend this house to anyone. Thank you Beth for sharing this spot with us!
Wonderful Beach House!
Great house! Great host! Great location! We felt so welcomed at the Red House. What a great spot to hang out. Everything was great and Beth thought of everything. Thank you Beth! We definitely will be back and can’t wait!
The house is immaculate, with a perfect location just steps from the beach.
Our stay at the Red House was fantastic. The house itself is wonderful, very cozy and clean. The kitchen is well stocked, the beds are comfortable and the deck off the master bedroom is a perfect place to sit and watch the sunset. The home is literally steps from the beach. Beth was a perfect hostess, very responsive and friendly. She even went so far to send back a tin of earrings my daughter had forgotten at the house. You will defiantely have a wonderful stay at the Red House, and I hope we can return and stay longer to enjoy all this area has to offer.
So close to the beach- you hear the waves - great house!
Very comfy & great house- only a few steps to the beach - very well equipped- some steep stairs - but great place - great outside shower- Beth was wonderful host!
