We loved everything about this place. We went with my Dad and our 3 year old in early June. We cooked out and ate in the backyard, snoozed on the lawn in front yard and hopped over to the beach in between. As others have said it has a lot of rustic charm and we felt very relaxed and at home.
We could not have had a better stay. The cottage is rustic yet completely stocked with everything you need for a year round stay at the gorgeous beach. Everything is there for you, from a BBQ, to a fully stocked kitchen, to a gas fireplace and comfortable furniture.
The hosts were also wonderful. We inadvertently shut off the pilot light to the fireplace and could not get it lit. This was on a very chilly New Year's Eve, and they were able to send a handyman over to the cottage immediately to fix the situation. We plan on returning often.
My family stayed at the cottage on Thanksgiving. It was clear blue sky. The beach was beautiful and we saw amazing sunsets. The drawback of the clear sky was it was very cold. The gas fireplace did a nice job of keeping the cottage warm. We were able to heat up our Thanksgiving dinner in the small but functional kitchen. The wifi worked very well. We had a great, relaxing time. The cottage isn't fancy but it has everything we needed.
Exactly as described, and a perfect cabin-like experience. And terrific hosts too! I would stay again in a heartbeat.
This is a nice modest place to spend time in a wonderful area. You really are a short walk to the beach. If it's not windy out I suggest taking a beach stroll up to the public park area of Stinson Beach. You can find lunch at the Seaside Cafe, the market or any of the few restaurants in the area. Some of the places are a little pricy, so you can also bring your own food to make in the kitchen or backyard grill. The only issue we had was with the shower liner and bath mat which probably need replacing.
We stayed for 4 nights at Mahasty's home. It is a very simple and cute beach bungalow. If you like old fashioned beach bungalows you will love it like we did! If you need something fancy then you should consider renting at SeaDrift. We loved the fact that beach toys (pails, shovels, etc.), beach towels and boogie boards are included, and the kitchen is full of dishes and pots and pans. We had a great time and will be back! Bring you own shower gel, there is none at the house!
