Property type cottage

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This shingled beach cottage was built in 1910 as a weekend beach cabin and expanded over the years into a cottage. Simply decorated with old furniture, antiques and artwork. Very tranquil both visually and audibly—the sound of the surf is ever present. Views of the sea and the Marin coastline and on a clear day the cubistic skyline of San Francisco is visible. Garden views—from the rear windows—illuminated at night with low voltage garden lighting.

A very cozy and peaceful retreat in a quiet coastal village, both the cottage and the town are a timeless anachronism with the scent and sound of the sea and near proximity to surrounding wild lands of Point Reyes National Seashore and Golden Gate National Seashore.

We were looking for a private place to breathe fresh air and get some quiet and Bolinas was perfect.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is beautifully situated and just big enough for our getaway. A really well supplied kitchen to cook in and feel right at home made our stay very relaxing. Michael was a terrific host.

Charming & Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed two nights at this charming cottage. Great location perched on the hillside just a short walk from the beach and main street of Bolinas. It's located in a neighborhood of homes, but still very private. Lovely front deck, beautiful back gardens, and lots of charming details and personal touches inside. And, the sunken bathtub is dreamy for relaxing with a good book. The property owner was very nice, responsive and accommodating. Highly recommended!

Beautiful and hidden Bolinas cottage

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier to have found this cottage! Everything from the views on the front deck and the master bedroom to the artwork, deep soaking tub, and gorgeous back garden was so well designed in the most understated kind of way and charming. Everything was perfectly clean when we arrived, the property manager was incredilby helpful (he even mailed something back to me I'd forgotten), and we immediately felt at home. The pictures don't quite do the place justice--you have to visit to undertand how charming it is!

We walked to the beach and town daily, went surfing right out the front door, and for a sunset hike a few miles down the road along another beach. Enjoyed delicious crabs from Don the crab man in town for dinner at home. None of us wanted to leave and we can't wait to come back. I would recommend this place in an instant to anyone.
