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 Stinson Beach

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.

Lovely house in a lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay at the Carriage House. The house was very easy to live in, modern and simply decorated. The master bedroom is very special and all the beds were comfortable. Having close access to Stinson beach was amazing and the gardens are gorgeous. Thanks to Steve, Lovisa and Karoline.

Magic

  • 5 of 5

We had a dreamy family time here! Both indoor and outdoor spaces are flowing, gracious, elegant and inviting, creating a tapestry of different interactions that delight the imagination with a sense of history and possibility. The place lends itself to small and large groups, days spent in twos and fours, swimming laps in the pool, reading, beach walking, hill hiking, pastries and coffee at the cafe; each evening we melded into our total of 13 for large dinners around the dining table and games in the living room. We truly would love to be back for a week.

Absolutely beautiful property. The grounds are amazing and the garden inspiring.

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier. The house is well maintained, close to the beach and to town, lovely wave sounds from all the bedrooms and the grounds are simply breathtaking. The owners were responsive to our needs and we look forward to returning.

Absolutely serene and gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

Went for a few days to hang out and relax with my kids before school starts, the house is beautiful and the property is secluded and magical. We loved exploring the gardens, walking to the beach (steps away), and walking to town (about two blocks away). We will definitely be back, it's a special place! Also the owners could not have been more welcoming and lovely :)

Lovely home in amazing location with incredible outdoor spaces.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved our short stay at this property. The owners have lovingly remodeled the house, which is beautiful and well appointed, and the gardens are spectacular. We used the charcoal grill for dinners on the lawn and came to and from the beach often and with easy, quick access through the gardens. We hope to be able to visit again.
