Overview

About the property

Unforgettable ocean views from deck, living room, and private yard with lawn.

This charming and historic multi-family beach home is perched above the ocean with amazing views of the coastline, surf break, and lights of San Francisco. While removed from the traffic and pedestrian noise of downtown, it's only a 5 minute walk to the main beach and 2 minute drive or 10 minute walk to downtown.

With 5 bedrooms and private parking for 3 cars, this spacious home has enough room to comfortably fit 10 people. The upstairs features a master bedroom with a new king bed and ocean views. The second upstairs bedroom features a new queen bed within earshot of the crashing waves. The downstairs includes three bedrooms - 2 with queen beds and 1 with a bunk bed. In total there are 2 full bathrooms (1 upstairs and 1 downstairs), and 1 3/4 bathroom downstairs as well as a laundry room, 2nd living room / play room and spacious 2nd eat-in kitchen downstairs. Hear the ocean from every room in the house.

While the home's size and quiet neighborhood set it apart, it's really all about the stunning ocean views from the bright and sunny upper living room, the deck, and private lawn. The deck has plenty of seating and a new gas grill. The large bright living room is lined with ocean-view windows, has a cozy wood fireplace, and comfortable furniture. The private yard is perfect for an afternoon picnic or letting the kids run around.

We are dedicated to making sure our guests enjoy their stay as much as we do and we take pride in our 5 star rating. The home is older and rustic much like most of the homes in Bolinas, but it's immaculate, the beds are comfortable and luxurious, and it is stocked with everything needed for a fun and relaxing vacation.

Explore the best sleepy beach town in Northern California with more flavor and character than most combined. The house is minutes to the local market, The Coast Cafe (delicious farm to table organic cuisine), Smileys bar (one of the oldest bars in Marin) which features live music every weekend, shops, galleries featuring local artists, and a tennis court that is open to the public on a first come first serve basis.

Bookings are not confirmed until receipt of signed contract and deposit.

Excerpt from Marin Independent Journal:

Bolinas is an unincorporated town of 2500 located 30 miles North of San Francisco at the southernmost tip of the Point Reyes National Seashore, surrounded by ocean and well-preserved parkland. Long known for its live and let live attitude, this spirited community of environmentalists, poets, surfers, artists, writers, and aging individualists doesn't have a mayor or a city hall, but its breathtaking scenery, rare wildlife, easy-to-surf waves make Bolinas a perfect destination for weekenders to find a quiet getaway, explore nature, and experience one of California's most culturally unique communities. Just a short drive away is the town of Point Reyes Station and the many local, and amazing oyster farms.

Split kitchens was a little different with a big group, but the view and the patio was without equal

  • 4 of 5

I would recommend this to any family wanting to get away from it all without going too far.

Great place for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5

My retired Dad lives in the Bay Area, so my extended family flies in from all over the world for one week a year. After renting a number of VRBO's, we have found that this property was by far the best.

First, the setting is beautiful -- at the crest of a steep hill looking down on Bolinas Bay and Stinson Beach. The nicest views were of the moon.

Second, this place is big -- it has four major bedrooms, plus a bunkroom etc. You can really have a good family reunion or just a large family gathering a the property.

Finally the amenities are all first class -- the deck is outstanding, the furniture is stuff you would buy yourself, and the (two) kitchens have what you need. Could .not recommend this place more, we are already planning on going back.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

We spent two wonderful nights here, and absolutely loved it! Amazing views, including of the surfers catching waves not far below, with beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Peaceful spot with relaxed decor; charming and welcoming, with lots of space and light. We plan to return to Bolinas and particularly this property, if only to gaze at the horizon and be soothed by the sound of the surf. So near, yet so far away from the urban bustle. Eat local at the Coast Cafe!

perfect weekend gateway in charming house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Drew & Sarah house for 2 days with a few friends and we had a wonderful time. The view on Bolinas from the house is absolutely breathtaking and the house is so big we felt super comfy in it. It was the perfect gateway weekend to escape our San Francisco routine. I definitely recommend to rent this place. Benjamin

Amazing Ocean View & Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Just stayed here for Fourth of July weekend. I've rented other houses in Bolinas and this one is THE BEST!! The ocean views are amazing and the house is big enough to fit a large group and never feel crowded. There are two kitchens and two living rooms and all of the bedrooms are plenty spacious. It's less than a five minute walk to the beach and town. There's a BBQ on the deck. Owners were very responsive and easy to coordinate with. Couldn't have asked for a better place! Thank you!

What a delight!

  • 5 of 5

The Bolinas area and the house are superlative. I wouldn't be surprised at all if we show up there again for a week next summer. I remarked to my wife when we got home that the house has a feel similar to our own, comfortable, well-cared for, lived in, with lots of love, sort of like a pair of my most comfortable old slippers. It fit. Well-appointed, with plenty of seating indoors and out. Loved the stunning views, the sound of the surf, and the natural light throughout. Kitchen had plenty of pots, pans, dishes, etc. Wi-fi was spotty, but we did expect that. Location is everything and this home provided quick access to the beach and town, both offering myriad opportunities for exploring and discovery. A straight half hour shot to Point Reyes Station and beyond, and a scenic mountainous, curvy hour to Sausalito and the City. Our entire family of six couldn't have been more pleased!

Wake up to the sound of the waves crashing, watch the surfers from 180 degree ocean view deck, then take a short walk down to the sleepy downtown for breakfast and walk on the beach. Bird watching, fresh oysters, hiking and biking all at your doorstep.
