Dear new & returning guests,

Due to the recent enforcement enhancement of Marin County's 10% hotel occupancy tax (this applies to vacation rentals as well) we will need to increase nightly/weekly rental rates by 10 precent. The new rates will be in effect August 1, 2015 and will apply to all new bookings. Existing reservations will remain at the rate they were booked at.

With kind regards,

Shell Cottage Management"

Why Shell Cottage Management chose Stinson Beach

Stinson Beach has been a favorite destination since I was a girl. My children and other relatives have lived in, or visited the town for over 50 years!

What makes this cottage unique

There is a calmness and quiet on the hill above the summer crowds. Also the hillside seems to naturally amplify the sound of the surf!

Perfect cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at shell cottage for three nights recently. Very comfortable, great for kids (we have three under ten), well stocked - they had everything we needed. The view is amazing, and so close to the beach! Watch out- the hill is steep!
