On The Beach! - Sleeps Four

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,500 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bath with front row view of the ocean!

You can't get any closer to the ocean than this!

This is a very casual, relaxed beach home with tall ceilings, huge windows, an open floor plan, and lots of light.

Spend the day splashing in the waves, lounging in the sun, and building castles before watching the sunset from the comfort of your Living Room.

There are two bedrooms, both with King beds, plus a Master bath en suite and guest bath, which accommodates a total of four people max because of the delicate septic system on property.

There is central heat, washer/dryer, coffee maker, quiet dishwasher, plenty of serving bowls, and a variety of glassware on site. There is no air conditioning because the ocean provides a cool breeze with the doors and windows open.

It's an easy 10 minute walk along the beach into town for coffee in the morning, or for dinner at Parkside at night. The Siren Cantina at the south end of the beach is a must-stop for their milkshakes and tacos.

Beach toys, chairs, and towels are provided.

The Audubon Canyon Ranch is a short drive up the road for a hike or day time change up, or go a little further up the road into Bolinas for more hikes or a visit into town where you'll often find a roadside flower and vegetable stand in the summer.

About Florie M.

I'm only the second owner of this wonderful beach front property and am looking forward to being the last!

I loved it the minute I walked through the front door because of the surprisingly tall ceilings and loads of natural light.

I bought the house so that my young daughter could grow up on the beach, learning to surf, hiking the trails, and being a part of the wonderful natural world.

Florie M. purchased this house in 2013

Why Florie M. chose Stinson Beach

There is nothing more soothing than listening to the waves as you fall asleep and taking a deep breath of that fresh ocean air.

What makes this house unique

Nothing beats beachfront, and I love sharing it with friends and family!

Idyllic Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Unbeatable location, literally on the beach, with spectacular water views from virtually everywhere in the house. Walking distance to town via beach or road. The house was comfy, welcoming and well-appointed with everything our young family needed (from puzzles for the adults to beach toys and books for the littles) to enjoy a peaceful weekend getaway. I loved sipping my coffee while watching the waves in the morning and every member of the family relaxed and had fun here. We will definitely be back!

Our favorite getaway

  • 5 of 5

Hannah's home is cozy and spacious, with everything you need for a quiet getaway. It is clean and neatly appointed, with a family's comfort in mind. This is our second time renting her home at Stinson, and we hope to come every year! Thank you so much!

great house and location

  • 4 of 5

The house is well described by owner and matches, its not a super luxury place, just a really nice old beach house. Has good amenities and is pretty clean for older place.

Down sides are deck is super small and there really is not outside area for entertaining outside. So you are basically down on the beach or inside.

Overall good and priced right given the other options.

Can't find my shoe...

  • 5 of 5

We apparently left a single skecher (sp) black tennis shoe at the house. we will gladly pay to have it sent to us. The house, as always was a marvelous retreat. The detour was not a hassle (over Mt. Tam). Time your drive to avoid heaver traffic. The sliding glass doors need a little push and fussing to open (living at the ocean) remain clam...they do work.

Love the stay. can't wait to return. Michael, Scout & Suzie

We are booking again!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely clean home with a great location on the beach. The house was well stocked with lots of towels & a well equipped kitchen. (one thing, the microwave did not work...) Comfortable beds.

The house was very peaceful with great views.

Even though we did not have great weather it was a good place to watch the waves..

We are looking forward to going back with better weather!

Car: not necessary

Wonderful home right on the beach and an easy 5 minute stroll to downtown.

Parkside Cafe is great casual dining with small park and playground across the street.

Sand Dollar is the local watering hole and fun hang out on their front porch.

Live Water Surf Shop is the place to go for surf board and wetsuit rentals.

Try the Siren cafe located down the beach in a former lifeguard lookout tower for beach food all day long.

Hike up the Matt Davis trail for elevation views of the beach and ocean, and on some days even the Farallon Islands.
