Stunning Villa with Cottage in Stinson Beach

Bedrooms 5
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 11-12)


Are you looking for that spectacular, unforgettable place that you will just not want to leave? The kitchen has a La Cornue stove, fireplace and pizza-oven, a 12 foot door that opens up the whole kitchen to the ocean and let's you step out onto a deck that feels like an extension of the kitchen.

Walk down a few steps and enjoy the fire pit on the stone deck surrounded by flowers and the largest aloe plant you have ever seen. Enjoy your morning coffee or evening drink in the hot tub while watching the stars or the west Marin coast line and Pacific Ocean. The kids will have plenty of fun in the play house, in the sand box or on the swing set - or down at the beach which you reach through a private walkway in only 2 minutes.

A favorite ritual in the morning will surely be taking the 5 minute walk to picturesque downtown Stinson Beach, get a coffee at the coffee stand and a newspaper at the market and either sit down on the bench and chat with the bikers and other coffee drinkers or bring it back home and put your feet up and marvel at the beauty of the ocean.

The main house has 3 bedrooms and two baths on the second floor. Wake up in the king bed in the master bedroom, look to the West and see the ocean or look to the East and watch the morning fog lifting from the hills. Enjoy the evening in the beautiful sun room over looking the ocean or go out on the balcony with a glass of wine and a chess set and let the sound of the waves calm your soul. For a perfect day, light a fire in the fire place before you crawl into bed with a good book. The second bedroom offers a queen bed and access to a balcony facing the hills, while the third bedroom faces the ocean and has a twin bed with a trundle.

Only steps away, the cottage offers two more bedrooms - one with a queen bed and one with two bunk-beds (4 beds) as well as a full bath.

About Lovisa Rubin

We bought this property in 2003 and spent 5 beautiful years here.

Lovisa Rubin purchased this house in 2003

Why Lovisa Rubin chose Stinson Beach

This is one of the most beautiful places on earth, in my opinion. It is unique in the way it has one foot on the 60's and one in the future.

What makes this house unique

The beach, organic food, sunsets that will give you goosebumps and sunrises with a cup of coffee in the hottub... Incredible view over the Pacific, seeing the moon reflected in the ocean at night is a sight you will remember for a long, long time.


Boogie boarding, wine tasting in Point Reyes, seal watching on the lagoon, Audubon Society, croquet, pasta night and open mike at the Parkside on Tuesdays....

Couldn't Be Any Better

  • 5 of 5

Very warm, comfortable, feeling of being home. Spectacular ocean view, pathway to the beach, fire pit, jacuzzi, humming birds. There's plenty of space inside and out so even with a large group there are places to be alone. Extraordinary place, extraordinary value.

This property is fantastic. It has wonderful ocean views and is only steps from the beach. The kitchen was great to work in with everything you need to handle a large group. We had 8 adults and 3 small children. The many rooms and bedrooms gave all of us as much privacy as we wanted and the common rooms and eating areas accommodated us easily. Our grandchildren loved the swing set, the playhouse and the beach. A memorable experience for my wife's 71st birthday.

Magical Property, and only seeing is believing!

  • 5 of 5

This is my dream house. It is incredible -- from the moment you walk in and see that amazing view, well we were smitten. Whether sipping hot cocoa at the fire pit in the cool evening, playing Bocce while listening to the waves crashing, or simply enjoying a glass of wine at dusk on the deck gazing out at the spectacular sunset, this property has it all. Lovisa couldn't have been kinder or easier to work with, and the house is set up with EVERYTHING you might need. And I mean everything... exceptional kitchen, comfortable beds, play equipment from boogie boards to kids toys to Apple TV, and lots of squashy couches and chairs for napping after a day at the beach.

We celebrated my hubby's 50th birthday with family and friends over a long weekend and will never forget the pod of dolphins we spied while having our morning coffee on the deck, or the turkey vultures checking us out from a nearby tree. We even had a nocturnal visit from a resident skunk while stargazing in the hot tub, but he was on his way to other adventures so he wasn't very interested in us :-)

Lovisa and Steve should be proud of this enchanting place. The only negative is we didn't book enough days!! We will definitely return!

Wonderful week with three generations on the beach

  • 5 of 5

The house is well laid out and appointed with high end appliances and finishes. The owners are very welcoming and have thought of every extra touch to make our stay perfect. We never ran out of any supplies and were grateful for beach towels, blankets to wrap ourselves in on cool nights, beach chairs, and superior cooking knives and pots and pans. The separate guest house worked well for one family with a newborn and 15 month old, and the baby monitor connected to the main house. Outside spaces gave lots of great areas for playing, dining and relaxing. The grounds are gated and private. There is great access to the beach and town. We very much enjoyed our stay.

A true family retreat for all ages.

  • 5 of 5

Upon opening the gates and seeing the incredible view, and then taking in the serene garden venues, alive with color and hummingbirds, we knew instantly that we were going to enjoy a very special week. We are a multi-generational family of nine. Between our evening hot tubs, and fire-pit smore-filled conversations, we played at the beach for daily adventures. This home is truly fantastic! the attention to providing a warm and special experience are beyond compare.

We hope to return.
