Why Katie chose San Francisco Bay Area

We chose our home in Stinson because it provides everything we want in a vacation home - a beautiful setting on the ocean with a lot of fun activities and a place to relax.

What makes this house unique

We love the ocean and hiking on Mt. Tam (Tamalpais). Although our beach house is only 30 minutes from our home, we feel ourselves relax the second the ocean comes into view. We leave our hectic world behind and enjoy our time watching the sunset from our deck as waves crash beneath us. We love walking on the beach with our two dogs, boogie boarding, playing beach volleyball, and hiking. We also enjoy relaxing in the hot tub, reading in our sun room, playing board games, or watching a movie in front of the fire. The views from our deck are amazing - the colors of the ocean are always changing! We also enjoy views of the beautiful sunsets to the SWest and the shining lights of San Francisco to the East. It's a magical place.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just wanted to say how grateful we were to have chanced upon this magic Kingdom. Took our breath away as we rolled down Route 1 into Stinson, then landed at the perfect spot. Waves right at our window! Endless walks on the beach, trail runs up the mountain Davis/Dipsea Loop. We have summer cottage in cape cod Brewster is a small down like Stinson and it has all the same charm. This is a treasure.

A fabulous week on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

My 2 kids and I had a fabulous week at this wonderful house right on Stinson Beach! From the adorable and comfortable cottage beachy furnishings, to the well equipped modern kitchen, huge deck, and the best location one could ask for - this lovely home exceeded our expectations. We wished we could have stayed longer and are already planning to come back next summer. Katie was a dream to work with and we couldn't be more satisfied. Next summer my kids want to each bring a friend - the lower level can sleep 4-5 and the perfect hang out for kids with the ping pong table and games galore. Thanks Katie for the great week!

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed being right on the beach, and it was so fun to play in the sand, watch the surf come in and out, and be able to walk right onto the beach and take long walks in glorious weather.

Very expensive, very dirty home, but literally on the beach

  • 3 of 5

In all fairness the owner was responsive when we needed them because they didn't send us check in directions, a key broke off in the lock, and a board fell off of the gate, however, there was dog hair everywhere, paint peeling off walls, dead flies all in the windows, filthy furniture, urine stained carpet, stained and ripped bedding, filthy oven, garbage leak dried to cabinet under the sink, sand and dog hair in the "clean" beds and a skylight covered in bird poop and spider webs hanging down inside. The cleaning fee was a lot on this rental. I'm not sure they even cleaned the place before we got there. It is right on the beach and we spent as little time possible inside the house.

They are in the process of updating the house and I think the owner truly cares. She did say she would refund our cleaning fee and after looking at pictures I sent her she said she would make sure everything was addressed.

It is a wonderful location and we enjoyed being on the beach, hearing the waves and being able to walk to town. Our kids liked playing at the park in town, eating at the restaurants and playing on the beach.

Owner's Response: Once again I'm very sorry that the house did not meet your expectations. As we discussed, there is no excuse for the house not being cleaned properly prior to your arrival and I honestly don't know what happened. I have been using the same cleaning service for 5+ years. Ironically, we have just completed major renovations, including a new kitchen, painting inside and out, and a new fence. I'm constantly replacing the bedding, towels, etc. I can't explain why the key broke off in the lock (never happened before) or why a board fell off the brand new fence, but I did have it resolved the same day. I would have gladly had the cleaning service come out and re-clean the place had I know it was not done properly. Hearing about it after the fact, all I could do was refund your cleaning fees. The slip covers on white couches and chairs are stained after years of use and are being replaced. New furniture has been ordered. Carpet stains in the small section of the sun room off the master were new and that carpet is being replaced. Bird poop on the skylight is hard to control. We have spikes on the roof to deter the birds, but our cleaning service cannot access the roof to clean the skylight. Please rest assured that future guests will enjoy a newly renovated, and professionally cleaned home in a magical setting on the beach. Sincerely, Katie

Great experience!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Great house, super comfortable and welcoming. RIGHT ON THE BEACH. The owner was so easy to deal with, very responsive to questions and a pleasure. Everything you would want...relaxed atmosphere, comfort beds and furniture, even big beautiful martini glasses. We will go back for sure. We have rented many places in Stinson over the years. I would say this may not have been the most fancy but no doubt one of the best.

Great house, Fabulous location

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 4 (two kids 9,14) stayed at this house for three nights during President's weekend. The house has a great layout with views of the ocean from every floor. The kids loved having their very own space downstairs, with a ping pong table, and just steps away for the hot tub. The upstairs has a great master bedroom with a sitting room over looking the ocean. The beds were really comfortable and the kitchen featured state of the art appliances. We really enjoyed our time here, and look forward to coming back in the summer.
