Why Katie chose Stinson Beach
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.

Beautiful view, great kitchen, + a couple of concerns
The view is incredible and the kitchen is great and well stocked. The owner was accessible and very nice when we had a couple of different issues/questions.
A couple of things that I do feel are appropriate to note. The third bedroom is not upstairs in the main part of the house. It is accessible via an outside staircase. In my opinion, the current description of the home, does not make that clear. This was very disappointing for our family. We have 3 young kids so it turned out that there was not enough space upstairs for our family. It would make sense to inform people about the arrangement of the bedrooms. There are two bedrooms + 1 bath upstairs and 1 bedroom and the bonus area downstairs (not accessible unless you go outside and enter through a downstairs door).
The neighbors directly behind were very loud the first two nights, partying most of the night and keeping us awake. I am not sure if that is their home or if they were renters. But, it was quite frustrating at 1am when they were partying, playing in the ocean, and then partying on their deck.
Our family had a wonderful stay on Stinson Beach. The house was perfect and we all loved it. The kids enjoyed having room downstairs to hang out and play ping pong while the adults enjoyed the view from upstairs. Being right on the beach was fantastic and allowed for the perfect morning coffee time with my husband while watching sea creatures frolick among the waves. We walked daily up and down the beach looking for treasures and enjoyed watching the plethora of dogs happily running about. What a great vacation. We hope to visit again one day soon!
We live in SF and go to the area often. First time we took a long weekend and this house, as you can see from the pics, is literally on the beach. Everything was in order when we arrived: the house was neat and tidy. The bedrooms were comfortable. We had four teenagers with us who enjoyed staying downstairs with separate quarters from the adults. We 'grown-ups' had a great time on the deck overlooking the ocean. Several of us went for a swim. Kids body boarded. Walks on the beach. Hikes into coastal range from town . Hot tub after for rejuvenation. Rewind repeat. You get the picture: it is a true beach house and a perfect get away from all the noise! We'll be back.
Really great two bedroom house with the third bedroom not so much
So, I wanted to give this place five stars, because it really is perfect in some ways. Right on the beach with beautiful decks on the sand, very nice and well appointed kitchen, comfortable living room with a wood burning stove for chilly nights or foggy days... And the two bedrooms upstairs, which sleep four comfortably, are both cozy and charming... the master bedroom has a charming reading nook facing the beach. But the third 'bedroom' downstairs is like an alcove in a converted garage - cold, damp and smelling rather strongly of mildew. The bathroom downstairs is extremely utilitarian with a toilet and sink but no shower, and our family of five ended up a bit crowded upstairs because no one wanted to be 'banished' from the comfortable warm environment there down to the dingy and musty cellar. So: this place has a lot to recommend it, but unless the ones heading for the third bedroom are teenagers who really don't care where they sleep, this really sleeps four.
Absolutely the best spot on the beach. Wonderful for children to run right out on the sand.
What else can I say? It was PERFECT for us. The house was certainly well supplied with a WONDERFUL kitchen that was stocked with any piece of equipment you could want. The house is practically all windows which is the way I live at home. Wonderful views..................and I always enjoy watching all the dogs. Could not have been a better place for us. Thanks so much, Katie.
Location, location , location. It’s a beautiful spot with breath taking views.
This is a wonderful spot with breath taking views. The house is comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked with cookware and utensils. You are not able to get downstairs from inside the house so if you are a family with young kids, consider that. The beds and bedrooms upstairs are comfortable, but some of the beds downstairs not so much. The only heat in the house is the wood burning stove upstairs and space heaters in the basement, both of which seemed to do a decent job if required. You are walking distance to the market which is nice. All in all, it was a pleasant stay.
