Overview

About the property

1-bedroom 1.5-bath cottage mixes contemporary amenities with fine craftsmanship

This superb new cottage at Stinson Beach is a splendid retreat for small families with children or for two couples. The detailed design by architect Mark Hulbert (Preservation Architecture) features radiant heat, natural trims,travertine floors and vibrant interior finishes- it’s ready for you to walk in and enjoy. Less than 200 hundred feet from the beach, the house features beautiful views of the coastal mountains, partial views of the ocean and is surrounded by gardens, decks and balconies. A covered exterior stairs connect the upstairs living area with the downstairs bedroom, adding to the indoor/outdoor feel of the beach cottage. The house is brand new and about as green as they come- compact and efficient. With radiant heat, a solar array, and LED lighting, we can’t consume much less energy. Yet the house is outfitted with the kind of conveniences we all need: satellite television service, HD TV, WIFI, blue ray disc player, and many games- so there’ll be plenty for you and your family to do. Whether it’s sports, movies or internet, it’s there.

We have direct beach access (right next door) and some of the toys you need at the beach including surfboard, portable BBQ and beach chairs for a great day at the beach. If hiking is your thing, we’re a short ten minute walk from the Dipsea Trail and Steep Ravine- two of the most stunning trails on the west coast. If you’re like us and food is a major part of your weekend, you'll enjoy our kitchen. The house is set up with linens and towels. We ask you to be very careful with your use of water, as the extreme drought has forced mandatory water rationing by the Stinson Beach Water District.

Traveling with children? PLEASE NOTE STAIRS ARE EXTERIOR Master to Living room, Dining kitchen and comfy pullout queen bed.

About Shannon McCauley

My wife and I just completed this house for our use together with our friends. We've spared nothing in detailing the building and we love the feel of it. We love the area- the mountains and beach- the hiking and the stars- it's a great get-away!

Shannon McCauley purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Shannon McCauley chose Stinson Beach

This particular property has a unique relationship with the hills and ocean. It's within walking distance of two of our favorite trails in West Marin- Steep Ravine and the Dipsea Trail-It's close to the restaurants of the village and it's right next to the beach.

What makes this cottage unique

We've really spent time on personalizing the cottage- from creating vibrant color palettes that remind us of a certain freedom that exists at the beach, to carefully considered choices on tile, wood and lighting. For us it represents a range of decisions that is well suited to us and reinforces the feeling of being happy to be at the beach.

Beautiful, fully appointed cottage steps awsy from Amazing beach .

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is beautifully decorated and landscaped. We loved being so close the beach sunrise, day. Sunset, night, cooking in the well -appointed kitchen, eating on the patio, all the lush landscaping and views, and having a bath tub. Also easy access to many walking and hiking vistas. It was perfect.

  • 5 of 5

The property was in an excellent location. Very clean which we appreciated. Wished it had a tv in the bedroom & a microwave in the kitchen for convenience of reheating. We would like to return for another visit. Thanks so much.

Perfect beach get-away

  • 5 of 5

My boys and I wanted to treat my mom to a special weekend at the beach for her birthday and this home was the perfect place for our visit! We loved the style of the home and proximity to the beach. It's a quick and beautiful walk along the water to get to town for coffee/ice cream/lunch, etc. I don't think we got back in our car the entire 4 days we were there. Management was very easy to work with and quick to respond to any questions. Thanks for making our stay so comfortable and easy!

A Very cute and clean little house with nice lightings

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I wanted to have a weekend get away for his birthday and this rental was perfect for us. We really enjoyed our stay. Literally 2 minutes from the beach. The only thing was the stairs between the bedroom and the rest of the house which was located outside the house. I'm sure there is a good reason for that. And to be honest we didn't mind at all.
