Built in 2001, you'll appreciate the detailed classic construction of this ocean view home just steps from beautiful Stinson Beach. Located toward the middle of the beach, away from the crowds, and close to the native dunes, this home is the perfect family getaway for those looking for a comfortable place to call home during their beach vacation. Purchased in 2010, it has been completely refurnished and updated with attention to detail, style & comfort.
The quaint beach town of Stinson Beach is a mere 20 miles from San Francisco, along California's world famous scenic Highway 1. 17 miles to the north is Point Reyes National Seashore, with kayaking in beautiful Tomales Bay, visiting the local oyster farms, and watching migratory blue, grey, and humpback whales among the many attractions. The town sits at the foot of Mount Tamalpais State Park, which at nearly 2600 feet tall and 25,000 acres, offers hundreds of miles of trails for hiking, biking and wildlife viewing, as well as the also world famous old-growth redwood forest of Muir Woods National Monument.
After a day enjoying the outdoors, rinse off in the private hot water outdoor shower before dining outside to the sounds of the crashing waves, or lounge in the deep tub in the marble encased master bath. Play your favorite iTunes beach vacation play list throughout the house on the full house wired stereo system, or relax in the evening with one of thousands of Netflix movies streamed on demand over the home's wifi on the 42' high definition TV.

We are a family of four, living a short drive 'over the hill' from our beach house. We're delighted to share our home with others that enjoy the beach as much as we do!
Owner purchased this House in 2010
Why Owner chose Stinson Beach
We chose Stinson Beach for all of the recreation opportunities (surfing, boogie boarding, hiking, biking, running on the 3 mile long stretch of beach...), vacation beach town vibe, and proximity to home! This beach house is well run, appointed & happily maintained by this stay-at-home mom who loves adding the extra-special touches! :-)
What makes this House unique
This beach house is very comfortable for a family or group of up to 7 people. There is plenty of space to gather in our 'great room' (living area-dining-kitchen are open for easy conversation) or out on one of our many decks (4 decks). The home lay-out & 'open feel' of this home is exceptional and complete with high ceilings, skylights and large windows throughout. Most important, beach access is quick & easy!

Everything you hoped it would be!
My wife and daughter and I stayed at the house in mid-July 2017...it's a wonderful home, exactly as depicted in Leslie's pictures and descriptions, and it's a 2-minute walk to the beach, if that. It's kitted out very nicely, and has a lot of fun details. It's especially suited for younger children, with plenty of beach toys as well as a lot of children's books and board/card games for the occasional rainy day. The wi-fi and internet worked great (as did all the technology), and I was able to VPN into my work network in Phoenix with no issues at all.
We had a great week getting away from it all at Stinson Beach, and we look forward to another opportunity to stay at Leslie and Todd's house when we can...thanks for sharing your house with us and being such gracious hosts!
I cannot say enough about this beautiful home! Leslie is an absolute gem! I am severely allergic to rosemary and thyme which is found in a wide array of products from home cleaners to soaps and shampoos. Upon relaying this to Leslie she went through the ingredients list for everything in the home. She even rearranged her schedule on our day of arrival to personally go through the house with me to make sure everything was okay (a first in all my years renting with VRBO). There was even a welcome basket with the best sea salt caramels ever! The home is stocked with everything you need for cooking and grilling all in excellent condition! The beach is literally out the back door and down a short walkway perfect for strolling the beach on the way into town if you don't want to drive. Everything we needed for a day at the beach was provided from the beach chairs and umbrella right down to the cooler and beach toys (again in great condition). The beach is wonderful for seal and whale watching and provided my eleven year old with an abundance of sand dollars and shells. The market in town is very quaint with everything you need but in limited supply and brands. There is a larger grocery store in Mill Valley within 30 min if there is something in particular you're looking for not at the market (we were already in town visiting Muir Woods). Our family of four flew in from Michigan for a one weeks stay and had nothing to worry about. The pictures were spot on, the beds extremely comfortable, the second bathroom a plus, and the home meticulously maintained! Leslie was easily available if anything was needed and the security deposit was promptly refunded. I would highly recommend this home to anyone looking to stay in Stinson, they won't be disappointed. Thanks again Leslie for your hospitality and sharing your home with us. This trip has become one of our favorite family vacations!
Fabulous time. Two families, including 3 boys aged 7 stayed at the house. Walking distance to the beach and town; spacious and comfortable house with all of the amenities you'll need to enjoy a relaxing and intimate dinner at home or play time at the beach. Leslie was wonderful and took amazing care to ensure the house was in good order and all of our needs were met. Thank you, Leslie, for sharing your wonderful home with us. We will definitely be back soon!
We had a great time in this house
Plentiful outdoor space worked very well for our group: balconies, decks. Grill, supplied with propane, was used every night for grilling. Convenient to the beach. House itself was well equipped and comfortable. Big inside table and big outside table. Not a huge house, but well laid out. Recommended for a family or family + friends.
Excellent Beach House
We had a wonderful time here. Everything was perfect and anything we needed was available. Being that close to the ocean was very special. Each night we had the door upstairs open and fell asleep to the sound of the waves. All the amenities in the home were great. I would highly recommend this home to all of my friends. Thank you so much for opening your home to us.
Fabulous Rental TRULY steps from the beach
You never know what you are going to walk into with a vacation rental - what might lurk behind the photos and dazzling descriptions. Well, in this case, NOTHING! The place was just as described and depicted. We enjoyed a much too brief stay but will absolutely return to this lovely spot. And, thank you, Leslie and Todd, for being so wonderful to work with - your communication is appreciated.
We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay!
We look forward to your return visit. :)
