Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

A large, private, three bedroom, two bath, house with magnificent views of the Pacific Ocean. Each bedroom is luxuriously appointed. The living room and dining area have a truly incredible six window view of the Pacific with white water waves crashing over exposed rocks. The house has a fireplace and two wood stoves, a well equipped kitchen and a large deck for enjoying the sunset. In addition to the three bedrooms is a cozy loft and quiet areas to read and relax.

You'll be a five minute walk to lovely Agate Beach, part of the Duxbury Reef Preserve. There you will find access to the Pacific Ocean, a quiet beach area and tide pools perfect for nature explorers of all ages. Nearby is also Bolinas Beach, a great place to play in the sand or take a surfing lesson from the Bolinas Surf School. A short drive by car is Stinson Beach and Point Reyes.

Close at hand are some incredible walks along the coast, including some trails into the southern end of Point Reyes National Seashore. During your stay you can also explore historic Bolinas. Founded in the 1850's, Bolinas has long served as a weekend getaway for San Franciscans, though in earlier times they would arrive by boat. Bolinas remains a great retreat and maintains a local culture shaped by the 1960's counter-culture movement.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Heather, we had a wonderful time. The house was comfortable & well

stocked. We bought crabs off the boats, oysters at Tomales Bay & went

clamming. Our meal on Saturday night included fresh cracked crab, steamed

clams, prime rib, & barbecued oysters. The children were thrilled & thanks for

providing the high chair. Could hardly keep Anaya, grandchild, out of it. We

were delighted with the food, amazing views & sleeping arrangements. I have

recommended the house to friends & hope to find time to stay there again in

the future. Thanks for the experience & the quality time my family had

together. We also had a ping pong competition. Unfortunately I lost."

Perfect vacation house for our family

  • 5 of 5

We love the house! It had a magnificent ocean view just as promised. Deers came to visit often in the backyard. We took short walks to Agate beach daily, and we had an incredible experience including rescueing a stingray from the shallow tide pool! The house itself had a great layout for our family. The kids fully enjoyed their (loud) games while daddy took conference calls without any problem. Beds were firm and very comfortable. There were pretty of board games provided by the host, and the ping-pong table was certainly a plus. Kitchen was fully equipped. We had a great time in this house. We would highly recommend it to anyone without hesitation.

Bolinas at its Best

  • 5 of 5

We very much appreciated the entire house experience from booking to stay: thoroughness, vibe, layout and amenities. For us as Nor Cal residents, this house represented exactly what an escape from San Francisco / the East Bay should be.

Back to the house, it has a great layout where the kids could fully enjoy their games while daddy took a conference call without any background noise. The beds were firm and very comfortable.

Perfect Bolinas Getaway House

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this beautiful Bolinas beach house. The views are amazing, and we walked to the beach every day. We also spent time in town and surfed "the Patch".

The kitchen was fully equipped for a birthday dinner, and the house had everything we needed.

We'd definitely stay here again. It was perfect.

Thanks!

A little bit of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Bolinas is our far-from-it-all-yet-SF-is-right-over-there getaway place. A new friend who joined us said, "I just want to cry every time I walk into the living room" - because the breathtaking views and down-home comfort of the house make you never want to do anything but look at the view, drink coffee, or maybe take a walk. We saw tons of wildlife including deer, fox, ravens, even a dead whale up the beach. It was all too short. We'll be back. Thanks, Rosnow family!
