About the Property

Newly renovated two bedroom, one bath in amazing garden close to the beach

Our newly renovated house is located on one of Stinson's oldest and most well known properties, and the house itself was designed by famous architect Rudolph Schindler. It is surrounded by an absolutely amazing garden, which has been featured on HGTV and in Garden Design magazine. It is located only a stones throw from downtown, as well as the beach - and yet, it is one of the most private, quiet properties in Stinson.

The upstairs of the cottage has three bedrooms, two of which have queen size beds. The Master bedroom has a king bed and a pullout couch. Upstairs is also where the bathroom is located, with a shower and toilet.

Meander through the garden, you may meet someone from our other rental at the top of the garden - if so, say hello and make a new friend! Take a moment and sit by the pond and listen to the frogs, go over to the veggie garden and see what has popped up that you can use for your evening meal - I can almost promise that you will leave this property feeling better than when you came...


This property truly has to be experienced, it is a one of a kind.

Please contact us if you are interested in hosting a wedding or party at our beautiful property. If you would like to have your wedding/party during the high season, we rent this property together with the Carriage house (VRBO#594727) a minimum of one week. We charge $17,500 for exclusive access to the upper and lower garden, the two houses and the pool.

During low season we also rent the properties together for weddings or large events, but weekend rentals are welcome. We charge $10,000 for exclusive access to the upper and lower gardens, the two houses and the pool. This includes early check-in on Friday and late check-out on Monday. The security deposit for weddings and large parties is $7500.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

Why the Owner Chose Stinson Beach, CA, USA:
We have been connected to Stinson for over a decade, and lived there for half that time, and being in Stinson is to love it. The community, the nature, the ocean - there is no place like it. We always knew this was a very special property, and we feel enormously lucky to be the stewards of such an amazing place with so much history.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
There is no other garden like this in Stinson, and no other place with such deep and long-running history.
