About the property

3 Bedroom, 1.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 5

One of the original Stinson Beach homes renovated for a memorable stay in this classic California beach town. Wonderful Ocean and Mountain Views from every room upstairs and a sun deck overlooking the town and beach. The quaint backyard native garden features additional decks and a hot tub to provide a relaxing and tranquil get away from it all. This home is for folks who want to park their car and enjoy walking to restaurants, hiking trails, library, playground, shops, our market and the beach all within 300 steps. Two downstairs bedrooms with 1 king bed, 1 queen bed and a small single bedroom all with french doors to the outside. It is protected from the coastal wind and has some of the mildest weather in this region. The home is up the hill from the store above the town and has some foot and vehicle traffic that pass by the house. It is far enough away from the beach and town activities to remain somewhat civilized and as always, gives you an entertaining look at the local culture and wonderful walking access to this fantastic part of California.

About Jim Clark

Lifetime resident of the area.

Jim Clark purchased this house in 1989

Why Jim Clark chose Stinson Beach

I grew up locally and traveled to 70 different countries but always knew that Stinson Beach would be a place that I would enjoy. The access to so much natural beauty both coastal and mountain and endless recreational opportunities was a perfect match for my interests and lifestyle. I was careful while upgrading this property to preserve the original footprint and classic beach feeling of the home.

Beautiful house with a wonderful view of the ocean. Very tranquil garden! Great place to stay and even better that it was walkable to the town as well as the beach! The owner very thoughtfully let us know of constuction issues ahead of time and was very responsive!

Great space and location to enjoy a few days a Stinson beach. House was well equipped and located a 5 minute walk to Stinson beach. Great sunset views, lovely garden with hotub. The house has lots of windows and a very warm cozy feel. We hope to visit again and will certainly recommend staying at Jim's place.

What jewel of a home! Cedar Home In Stinson Beach was perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home inside and out! Everything was spotless! Beds were super comfy! Kitchen was fully stocked for all our cooking needs! Outside yard was super private with hot tub. Outstanding views with wrap around decks! One side is the ocean for miles and miles and the other direction you have Mt Tamalpais with trails for hiking. We were fortunate to have beautiful weather. On our second day we watched a few whales just in front of us frolicking in the was if we could reach out and touch them! Super convenient to town! Cute shops. fabulous food...

Jim the owner of the home was quick to respond to any and all questions and super accommodating!

We can not wait to return! Thanks for everything Jim!!! we look forward to our next visit!

Wonderful home in a fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this home. The views are fantastic and the location cannot be beat. The property is very well maintained, well stocked and comfortable. The manager is extremely responsive and helped us during our stay. We went on a few amazing hikes and were always happy to return to enjoy the afternoons and evenings at this special property.
