About the property

An incredible find for people who want the comfort of a house that is much newer and in much better shape than most Stinson Beach homes. Five houses from the beach and six minutes walk to town, this house is bound to become a vacation favorite for your family. It has all the modern conveniences, too.

Unwind by the ocean in this comfortable, luxurious, family-friendly 3 bedroom home. All new furnishings, just steps from the beach. A short walk down the beach will bring you to the Stinson Beach business district, where you will find a well-stocked grocery store, a great little bookstore, local bars and restaurants. Hop in the car and take Hwy 1 in either direction for incredible scenic drives to some of the San Francisco Bay Area's justifiably world famous attractions, from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Napa Valley wineries. Hike or bike the surrounding hills and beaches, take out a kayak on the lagoon, surf the waves, or just relax and breathe the fresh sea air.

About The Owner

I have always been drawn to the beach since my parents started making the 10 hour drive from Ohio to the Delaware shore in the 1960s. The memories of those family adventures are still with me today. My wife experienced the beach as a child growing up in England. Our three children are 16, 13 and 7. I am a registered investment advisor and run 360 Investment Advisors in San Rafael. Our Stinson house is perfect for us and we think you’ll enjoy it too.

The Owner purchased this house in 2012

Why The Owner chose San Francisco Bay Area

Our family of five has been enjoying Stinson Beach for close to two decades. We live in San Rafael, so it’s a one-hour drive to this wonderful and welcoming village by the sea. We rented houses all over the beach area, from the close-in Calles out to the secluded subdivision of Seadrift. After years of renting, we fell in love with a house that came on the market in 2012, and which had not been available for rent. That house is 14 Calle Del Pradero. We hope you will like the house as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

14 Calle del Pradero stands out from the other houses in Stinson. It’s very unusual because it’s one of the newest and largest homes within yards of the beach and within 5 minutes walk to the center of town, with it’s shops and dining. It’s very well designed, very well maintained and full of great touches and useful conveniences. Plus, it’s new on the vacation rental market. We think it will get fully booked very quickly. We certainly love staying here.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just wanted to tell you what a wonderful time we had at your place in Stinson! The location was great for our needs and the house had a nice open feel.

We will definitely book again.

Comfortable and Lovely

  • 5 of 5

This home is in a perfect location for enjoying Stinson Beach-close to the beach with an easy walk to town. The bedrooms served our family well, as did the fully stocked kitchen. The reading nook was especially loved by our daughter-what a great collection of books!

Only item we would have liked to have had was a blender ;)

Thank you!

  • 5 of 5

WE thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovley light filled home just three houses from the beach. We enjoyed family time at the beach and on the upstairs deck with plenty of room to eat and then back to the beach for more fun. The outdoor shower so wonderful with warm water to rinse off the cold kids of sand before entering house was great!.

Location and setting was perfect.

Thank you for our time at Stinson and we would definitely return to this home !!!!!!

Perfect Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time celebrating my sons college graduation and Mother's Day at this beautiful and comfortable beach house. The house is beautiful and very comfortable and the huge front deck is perfect for relaxing mornings and evenings or sunbathing. The gas grill is huge and accommodated a large dinner for our family of 8. Everyone said their beds were comfy and everything was in working order. It was just steps from the beach and a quick 5 minute walk to the market in case you leave anything at home. Andre and Leslie were so sweet and left us wine and snacks and were very easy to reach when we had questions. We met the neighbors at the beach and they invited us over for wine. We will absolutely be back for more fun family memories.

Great family friendly vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been vacationing in Stinson Beach for over 20 years and this is the first time we rented this house. We loved it! It was perfect for our group of 5 adults and 2 kids. The main living area is situated upstairs, with a large great room and kitchen. It's was the perfect place to gather. There is a master suite plus a half bath upstairs, and two more bedrooms and a bathroom downstairs. All the furniture was great, including the huge couch in the great room. We were all able to fit on it comfortably for movie watching and board game playing. All the beds were very comfortable. The home has beautiful tile floors throughout and high ceilings, therefore it echos a bit and voices carry. This is definitely not a criticism of the house, but more of a heads-up for light sleepers. Noise carries very easily, so bring your earplugs if you like to sleep in. There was a welcome basket of sparkling wine, crackers and chocolate on the counter when we arrived. This was so thoughtful and unexpected. The owners were very easy to work with and responsive. We especially appreciated that they allowed us to check in early and check out late. We will absolutely stay here again.

Stinson Beach
Car: recommended

No need to put on shoes to go to the beach! Situated on a private road leading from Hwy 1 to the beach.

About a 35-minute drive from the Golden Gate Bridge on California's Highway 1, Stinson Beach is near important attractions such as Muir Woods National Monument, Agate Beach tidepools, and Mount Tamalpais. It has a long sandy beach, and peaceful lagoon which teems with birds and wildlife.

Stinson Beach is a popular day trip for people in the San Francisco Bay Area and for tourists visiting northern California. The network of hiking trails around Mount Tamalpais is extensive and breathtaking. The beach is one of the cleanest in the state.
