Cozy cottage with all the amenities. Plenty of room for a family or just a couple. Just a short walk to the beach. I had a great time and was very satisfied with my stay.

Our family rented this house:

We had the BEST VACATION! Steps from sandy beach - this house beat our expectations. Our kids had the best time surfing and playing at beach. Owners could not be more kind and accommodating! House had comfy beachy decor, a more than well stocked kitchen, upgraded towels and sheets, extra large private outdoor area, new hot tub, bbq, lounges, beach chairs, beach umbrella, on site parking. Everything we needed/ wanted was there. We are planning to book again for next year. Highly recommend- a gem.

The perfect place for a beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This cozy beach house is such a gem! We couldn't get enough of it the first time, so came back a second, and are planning a third time really soon. It really feels like home to us! It is clean, comfortable, updated, and the decor is just so cute! The three bedrooms are perfect for 6. My kids especially loved the shared room with the twin beds--the roof is angled so that it feels like their own "nook", although it is a very spacious room. They love to hide away in here and play. The kitchen is well-stocked, and the bathroom clean. We love the large living area with comfortable couches and a big table to spread out and do puzzles. And when it is cold, you can just crank up the fire and it will heat up the whole place quickly, making it so cozy!

The front and backyards are so well landscaped (I am a plant person!). The backyard spa is a big hit, especially if it is cold out! My kids and even dad (we were there to celebrate his 70th birthday) couldn't get enough of it! The backyard is fenced and protected from the wind, with a comfortable patio set to lounge on. There even is a warm water hose in the back to wash off sand from the beach.

The neighborhood is quiet, and it is just a short walk to the beach, and even into town. We have walked to restaurants in town on the beach, without even getting in our car. And it is nice that it is so close for bathroom breaks while hanging out at the beach with the kids!

Karen, the owner, is just the sweetest person--she feels like an old family friend! She is so concerned about making the stay just perfect. She is always prompt with communication, and is just so warm and welcoming. We are so grateful to her and this lovely house.

Thanksgiving stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beach house for a week at Thanksgiving. We are a family of 4, with 2 daughters aged 8 and 10, a small dog, and my parents came and joined us for a couple of nights. The house was perfect. We had very cold weather during our stay and King tides, so I was grateful for the fabulous fires, which heated the house within minutes. I also appreciated the location, being not right on the beach. It was close enough for our kids to walk down and hang out playing in the sand on their own, but away from the king tide that hit. We could also walk into Stinson for dinner, to the well stocked shop or for a coffee and to potter around. The house looks small from the outside, but inside it was perfect for our family and the outdoor area would be great in warmer weather. Our girls loved being in the shared room, with day beds and their own TV. My husband had to work during our stay and he called Karen about internet access and she responded immediately and an engineer was at the house the same day. That is better service than we get at home! This is our third year spending Thanksgiving at the beach and this has been my favourite property by far. It was clean, well furnished, cozy and quaint, but with the feeling it is well maintained and cared for. On asking my daughter what she liked about the house she said ' It felt like home'. A much praised comment indeed.

Lovely Beach Weekend

  • 5 of 5

A friend and I stayed at this beach house with our families before and after running the Miwok 100km race. The house fit our two families (6) very comfortably and had all the necessary amenities, and the hot tub was AMAZING to have before and after the race. Beach access within 100ft made for convenient strolls on the sand and dips in the ocean. Karen was always prompt with communications and helping us get settled in upon arrival. Would very happily stay again, Stinson always makes for a great relaxing get away not too far from San Francisco, but well removed from the mayhem and busy city life style.

Cozy and comfortable beach house with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

Clean and comfortable, we loved our stay here. Steps from the beach, with everything we needed to enjoy our visit with our son and his girlfriend. We only had to bring food, beach towels, and our favorite books.

Outdoor area is fenced in and protected from the wind, and the hot tub was a hit with everyone. Nice and quiet atmosphere encouraged relaxation, and cooler mornings were warmed by the gas fireplaces easily. We especially enjoyed cooking with every spice imaginable already there. Kitchen cleanup was also a breeze with a dishwasher.

There was also plenty of room to spread out so you never felt crowded.

Karen, the host, was very welcoming and always available by phone for silly questions. I hope to meet her in person some day, as I am sure we would be fast friends. We look forward to coming back the next time we are in the area.

Only recommendation is if you are flying in to SFO, allow plenty of time for your return trip - it can be a challenging ride on route 1 to get back to the airport for a morning flight.
