About Oceanic Realty

I'm a creative person that brought Sea Blue's architectural potential to fruition. My design theme: casual luxuries all ages will enjoy, together in one home... Quality creature comforts with a casual spin, where Having Fun Meets Plush Rejuvenation...

Oceanic Realty purchased this house in 2012

Why Oceanic Realty chose Stinson Beach

We chose Stinson because of its nearby location to BOTH ocean and redwoods & down home vibe. One minute grab your hiking boots and the next, flip flops! You forget the world here...& when you want to remember it, San Francisco is a quick AND SCENIC 40 minutes away. Authentic Mom/Pop towns continue up/down the road on Pacific Coast Highway, known for its most beautiful coastlines in the world. People & experiences are real here.

What makes this house unique

Sea Blue is an amazing beach house you'll feel fantastic in, from head to toe. The second home from the beach, it's a PRIME location. It's better than ocean front because you get ocean front experiences, with privacy. It's the best of both worlds. The home's thoughtful details make your experience feel super comfortable, easy & real. Example: On the wall I've displayed easy to read maps, Authentic 'In The Know' Things to Do In/Around the area and even local massage information.

Loved Sea Blue

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our family back in april and thoroughly enjoyed the experience! The location and architectural style of this home is really wonderful...and simply felt good. Our experience here was just great! We had all the nice luxuries of a top hotel but the really cool part was that we were in a home, in a beach village community... two homes from the ocean. New beds were great for our problematic backs and plush towels were nice too. Even bathrobes provided...a neat touch! We loved the wood stoves and got firewood from the local store. Views of the ocean and Mt. Tam beckoned us for a couple good hikes in the area and walks on the ocean. There was a parasailer that started up in the hills and came all the way down to the ocean. We got to watch it from the balcony and the family room (with all the windows)...we're renting this place again next year.

Beautiful Property

  • 4 of 5

This house was beautiful and just steps from the beach. I loved the plush towels and bedding. The robes were an added luxury. Everyone had a wonderful time.

The reason I did not give a five star review was because there were no kitchen supplies at all. I am used to having left over spices, and some condiments (mustard) in the fridge. There was nothing, not even salt/pepper. I had to drive home on the second day to pick up basic materials to cook with for the rest of the week. Another issue was only being given a few extra rolls of tp. We had 6 adults and two children at the house for a week. 4 rolls of tp did not last through the weekend. That was also I reason for my drive home. I only live an hour away, so it wasn't that huge of a drive, but I didn't expect to need to go home for basic necessities. Granted I could have purchased these items at the local store, but they are very expensive and I did not want to buy things (salt/pepper) that I wouldn't need after the week was over. This was only an issue because we have rented many houses in many different locations over the past 30 years, and this is the first house that did not have a stash of supplies, both kitchen and paper goods.

Owner's Response: We're so glad you enjoyed our home. Management has told us we are the only Stinson rental with bathrobes. Management would be happy to replenish toilet paper requests. You just need to ask. Because our home has become so popular, it has become impossible to maintain a supply of basic spices and condiments. We've tried, supplying at the beginning of each season, but some renters take them.. Our home is perfectly located, with only a five minute stroll to the local market, in town. Although a bit pricier, it's still an option. Bolinas and Mill Valley are 30 minutes round trip, for slightly cheaper prices. I have updated our VRBO website.

Perfect getaway for families

  • 5 of 5

Dreamy views, fun beach and water play, a fantastic local park and restaurants all easy walking distance! The kids had a blast, and my husband (who usually doesn't sleep well) raved about the mattresses, so comfortable! Lots of thoughtful details from games to toys to lovely linens and a darling, sunny kitchen. We even made s'mores by the fire pit on the lower patio! It was the stuff summer memories are made of. Great spot.

Lovely stay at Sea Blue

  • 4 of 5

Lovely home minutes from the beach. Recent stay for a one day small family gathering to honor loved ones, age ranges from 6 months to 70 yrs in attendance and EVERYONE had a great time. Did a walk through prior to arrival, small quirks noticed and some found later, possibly typical with an often used vacation rental: downstairs bathroom glass pane was missing and another loose, was not repaired in that 3 month span, outside downstairs porch lights were inoperable (not noticed until after dark), made walking slightly hazardous with the stairs, no additional linens upstairs but found several downstairs, no curtains in upstairs bathroom window was disturbing, as it opens to the street and only one robe was found in the upstairs hall closet (which was missing a knob) when searching for blankets and the upstairs from door handle was loose on the inside. Some broken glass was found outside in the sand so we were conscious to keep shoes on in that area. Lastly the upstairs t.v. was difficult despite instructions and would freeze, leaving one child to think it haunted! HOWEVER, you couldn't beat the distance, the view and of course, the family company that attended from across the U.S. Highly recommend this place!

All the Comforts of Home

  • 5 of 5

Everywhere I looked this place had all the comforts of my home. When I wanted music, there was an Ipod station. Wanted a film, there was Netflix. Wanted breakfast, it was a quick and beautiful oceanside walk to town...10 minutes away. My favorite moment was falling asleep to five star bedding and listening to the ocean's waves, so close. My second favorite moment was having my coffee in the morning with the Cuisinart Grind n Brew...and hanging out on the balcony with close, close ocean views. Although the place has Wi-Fi, I didn't have to research what to do in the area because owners have created an extensive board for "In The Know" things to do in the area. Come here if you want to deplug. We'll be back for sure.

Stinson Beach, a quaint & down home oceanside village is FANTASTICALLY unique for its nearby location to BOTH ocean and redwoods. One minute, grab your hiking boots and the next, flip flops!
