About Jennifer

My husband and I purchased the lot in 2005 with excitement beyond belief. We actively started designing around some very strick guidelines and restrictions. In the end I believe we achieved a very nice product with his building skills and my artistic talents. You'll find unusual details throughout the home and my paintings on the walls.

Jennifer purchased this house in 2006

Why Jennifer chose Stinson Beach

We built our home at Stinson beach in 2005. Stinson Beach was a natural choice and had a long history for our families. My husband and I grew up going to Stinson either after school, with our families for holiday, and then later for family reunions bringing our kids. There is so much to do- walk/run the beach, swim, surf- board or body, sunbath, hike the fabulous trails, kayak the lagoon, relax, and the list goes on.

We feel very fortunate to have found this lot with the ability to build a simple but stylish home that serves many travelers.

What makes this house unique

The beauty of the beach, the sound of the waves crashing, the intimate neighborhood community, close to town for a stroll to dinner, near the town market, fabulous sunsets. You get the best of both worlds that Stinson has to offer- the beach but also the mountain!! The famed Dipsea Trail, majestic Matt Davis Trail just outside our door. Gorgeous sunsets, collecting shells, flying kites, building sand castles...............

This really is the best place to stay at Stinson!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at other homes in the area, including some right on the beach, but this has them all beat. It is on a quiet street immediately adjacent to hiking trails and a short, safe walk to the beach and all other amenities. No need to walk along Highway 1 which can be dangerous. The ocean views are amazing and the property is very clean and well-maintained. The owner is quick to respond to questions and very helpful. Highly recommended!

This Home Lives Up To The Hype

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed at Jennifer's home and used it as our base camp for the Miwok 100Km Endurance Run. This place was spectacular and exceeded any of our expectations. We were right down in Stinson Beach...just a 5 minute walk from the starting line of our race. We went down a couple of days early to relax prior to the race, and stayed a couple of days afterwards to enjoy the atmosphere. If you're looking for a place to stay in Stinson, you can't go wrong with this property. We've talked about it many times since we left, and are definitely looking to go back and stay here. The house is spectacular, and you can't beat the view. Hiking, running, and just hanging out at the beach are just minutes away by foot. We can't stay enough...loved our stay here, and hoping to make a return trip very soon.

nice place with ocean views above Stinson Beach

  • 5 of 5

This was a very nice location, and we especially liked the ocean views from the kitchen and bedroom. We liked the open floor plan, which was different from some of the other houses we saw in the area. It was also convenient to the Stinson Beach Community Center where we went to a wedding reception.

  • 5 of 5

My family of four (including 2 teens) enjoyed every minute of our stay in this lovely beach home. Jennifer was a welcoming host and the house was well equipped, spacious and clean. We would definitely stay here again.

This is a great find.

  • 5 of 5

Jennifer couldn't have made this easier or less stressful, from beginning to end. She's great to work with. Plus, Stinson is such a nice town, and this house on the hill offers views of the ocean or the hills from every window. Just beautiful. It's heated well, has a well-stocked kitchen, a washer and dryer, two complete bathes, is walking distance to the market and town center, and is in very a quiet neighborhood (plus it has a large driveway!). I can't wait to come back!
