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.
Pool / Spa
Everything to be desired
Ours was a dream stay. The home is nicely located, splendidly designed and appointed, wonderfully maintained, superbly managed. The owner was very easy to communicate with. Though in the center of things in this small beach town, the home offered quiet and relaxation, not least with its secluded garden featuring an inviting spa. Highly recommended.
Perfect Stinson Beach experience
Our family of 4 loved it here. The main living room is so bright and cheery and the view is awe inspiring. My 2 year old told me she didn’t want to go home because our house has “shadows” and this one didn’t. The kids loved the backyard/patio, too. I appreciated how private it was and loved sipping coffee and watching the hummingbirds. I was able to hike the Matt Davis and the Dipsea without getting in the car. Did visit the Bay Area Discovery Museum (a must for young kids!) and Point Reyes. The house perfectly met our needs.
Great house in lovely, picturesque beach town.
This house made for a fantastic visit to Stinson Beach. It is close to the beach, market, restaurants and cafes. The home is very well kept, and is perfect for a small family. Great views of the ocean from the upper deck, and lovely evenings in the hot tub in the zen garden in the backyard. Owner was easy to deal with and responsive. Would certainly return!
Love this house and owner!
This is our third time to stay in the Cedar House. Our whole family loves it. The house is clean with a lovely view. The yard is beautiful and private. Close to groceries, restaurants, beach, basketball court, ping pong and incredible hiking. Park the car and be done with it.
Perfect Beach to Hiking Get-A-Way
This beach town home is the perfect location for doing everything from beach time to hiking. You can walk to both the beach and hiking locations from the home. The interior is well-laid out, has a great kitchen and comfy beds. The view is fabulous and there is a market store just steps away. We recommend the Parkside for eating while in town and there are also great coastal small towns nearby to visit. Jim is great at responding to questions. We had a wonderful time here and highly recommend it.
Charming light filled, ocean view cottage
