Perfect, Just PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

Our daughter lives in Bolinas in a tiny home, so there is no room for her father and I when we come to visit, and very few options in the area. This trip was our first experience with VRBO and we are hooked. Especially on this gem of a cabin. Very private with a lovely yard, fire pit, plenty of places to sit and hang out. Beautifully sited with all day sun. The bed was very comfortable. We stayed for four nights through Christmas and the only issue was that it was a bit chilly when we arrived. James responded to our call right away and the propane fireplace in the kitchen heated up the space nicely. The kitchen worked well, had everything we needed. A great location to unwind with great walking options, quiet roads, fields, beach and Mt. Tam. We had a lovely stay and can't wait to return! Thank you, James, for your lovely place.

Hooray for Privacy, Heavenly Hot Tub, Friendly Owner, Fun Place!

  • 5 of 5

We rented James' place sight-unseen, but were very pleased when we got there--so sweet! The fences and hedges give you complete privacy for the outdoor hot tub, and yet you're not in so remote a locale that you feel spooked. Inside, there's a great claw-foot tub, pretty rugs, a very comfortable bed, and large towels. We highly recommend, and hope to return!

One detail to be aware of that has nothing to do with the wonderful property itself: the drive to the unique town of Bolinas from SF is not for the faint of heart! It's one of the most gorgeous routes imaginable, on Hwy 1, but runs up and down mountains, with dramatically gorgeous vistas from way-high-up bluffs that I enjoyed but that terrified my husband. Took about an hour and was worth it.

Great Honeymoon Hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

This sweet small cottage was the perfect hideaway! So snug and private and quiet, we never saw another person around while we were there. The bed was comfortable. The cottage was light and pretty and had everything we needed for our 4 night stay. We used both the indoor and outdoor showers, and the outdoors one made it feel like Hawaii. Short drive down to the beach or town (about a mile and a quarter). We loved the whole experience!

First time users ~ Great little getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the cottage, beautiful workmanship and love put into it! We had a few surprises, but that was because we were not prepared and had not checked the details and mileage to places we wanted to see!! So, it is a delightful place to stay, and I think the location is stunning! Bolinas Bay is a quaint little town, and we should have stayed put longer to take advantage of it. Would love to come back when it is warmer and the sun is shining. But, on a positive note, the area needed the rain :) Thanks James your Cabin shines, and will be loved by many!

An amazing sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

We had the most beautiful stay at the cottage. Quiet location removed from the hustle and bustle of downtown Bolinas. A spot where you can hear the wind in the trees, the birds singing and the waves crashing on a high surf day.

The bed was so comfortable. The bath....oh the bath :) There was nothing we could have wanted more here.

The kitchen provided us with everything we needed to make delicious breakfasts and when we wanted a night in we would hit the local vegetable stand and create exceptional home made meals under the stars.

We brought our bikes and rode everywhere.

A Labyrinth walk at commonwheel and another walk downtown during solstice. Awww...so lovely.

JAZZ @ Smileys...with Dale. What more could you ask for.

Amazing surf for those who are just overjoyed to feel the salt on our skins and swim with the local sea life (no shark sightings...whew).

We loved every minute and plan to return.

See you in 2016!

A lovely slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5

A friend and I spent a relaxing week at this property in June 2015. For us it was the best rest and relaxation any doctor could possibly order. We had one concern/confusion, and a quick phone call later, the owner had it resolved and clarified. He is very responsive. The take an item/leave an item pantry is a wonderful idea.

You'll need to adopt a European style of living for your kitchen activities, which I enjoy and prefer, but others may need to consider. The reason is the refrigerator is small, but this is the only drawback, and I found I was able to easily adapt.

The town of Bolinas is delightful and there are many rural roads/trails for hiking and exercising.

The care the owner took and placed when he built this lovely cottage is easy to see in the detailed workmanship found throughout. Do pay mind to the short, but easily understood, list of instructions he has left. This is an environmentally friendly cottage, and this list helps you understand and work with its environmentally friendly qualities.

I would highly recommend this property and would gladly stay there again. I look forward to coming back someday and enjoying a cocktail in the hot tub as I look up at the stars.
