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.

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.
Great place, great views!
We enjoyed our Spring Break visit to Jim's house at Stinson Beach - we were just two blocks from the beach and from the Dipsea Trail. We had a great time exploring Marin - Point Reyes, Point Tomales, etc. And whale-watching from the beach! The house is comfortable and well-equipped and has excellent views of the surrounding hills and the beach. Really enjoyed the hot tub after attempting to surf!
Charming light filled, ocean view cottage
The cottage was all we had hoped for....historic charm, ocean views, great kitchen, and we walked everywhere...I would highly recommend it!!
Great family get away
This is a beautiful house in a great location, close to the beach but not in the middle of everything. Floor plan is great and garden is beautiful. It was great for our family get away. Jim is very conscientious and helpful
The house is clean and bright and has everything you need for a relaxing get away. Being just up the street from the market and main drag in Stinson meant we didn't need to hop in the car for anything. Jim is a thoughtful host and very responsive throughout the booking process. I'm planning another stay this summer. Thanks for sharing your home Jim!
