Overview

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.

Why Lovisa Rubin chose San Francisco Bay Area

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.

What makes this cottage unique

There is no other garden like this in Stinson, and no other place with such deep and long-running history.

Wonderful home and beautiful grounds with amazing access to beach and hiking trails!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week at the Carriage House. The house was comfortable, and we loved cooking together and spending evenings around the fire. We loved that the house provided such easy access to the beach and hiking trails. Lovisa and Karolina made sure that we had everything we needed. We couldn't recommend this place highly enough! We certainly hope to come back soon!

Perfect for Wedding Welcome Reception; Close to Everything

  • 5 of 5

The Carriage House was great. It worked perfectly as rental and a green space for a welcome wedding reception. We also appreciated all of the help from Steve, Lovisa and Karolina, who helped every step of the way. Could not have asked for better people to rent from.

So Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had an amazing week-long stay at the Carriage House! From the start, the warm house and private extended grounds enabled us to relax and absorb the simple, relaxing elegance of Stinson Beach. Karolina reached out to us, via text early on the first day and invited us to come sooner than the 4pm check-in time. Upon arrival, she left us delicious local foods in the beautifully appointed kitchen, including fresh bread, pesto, eggs, half/half and coffee. From each window, you look out onto peaceful gardens, great for meditation, reading books, playing a game of chess, or sipping a cup of coffee. The house is ideally located to walk right out to the beach, or up to nearby hiking trails, or into town for a wonderful meal. Everything is well stocked for cooking in the kitchen, for warm-cozy fires in the living room and for outdoor grilling. Beach chairs, towels, boogie boards, soccer nets, bikes, and a trampoline add to more amenities than you can imagine. We highly recommend the Carriage House and hope to return soon!

Lush and beautiful. Absolutely magical.

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week with our 2 teenagers and 10 year old. The house is high quality, comfortable and has a natural, modern, and beach-y vibe. Explored Point Reyes National seashore (incredible..check out the lighthouse and Drakes Bay), took a ride in to San Fran (I recommend the panoramic route if you have a fear of heights!), and spent most days relaxing on the beach watching whales (for real!) and seals play. Binoculars were a great idea. We would absolutely stay here again!

Amazing property, location and customer service!

  • 5 of 5

My family loved this home and the surrounding outdoor space/gardens so much. It was the perfect weekend getaway and we couldn't have asked for anything more! Great for kids, especially with Stinson Beach a few steps away and all the outdoor activities and games provided in the beautiful yard. Can't wait to come back again and would definitely recommend this property to family and friends.
