About The Owner

I am a 5th generation San Franciscan. I have served as president of the Newhall foundation, operated a store specializing in Asian Art in SF's Jackson Square, and served for years on the board of directors of the Bolinas Museum. I have built, bought and sold houses in Bolinas since 1991. I live in downtown Bolinas. I owned and sold the house next door so I was familiar with this beach part of town when this property hit the market. My family has been coming to Bolinas since the 19th century. I was born in SF but have been a Bolinas resident over twenty years.

The Owner purchased this house in 2013

perfect location for a family beach gathering

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! We gathered there with our adult children and some friends. The house is really comfortable and conducive to hanging out. There are many cozy seating areas. It is about a 1 minute walk to the beach and 5 minutes to town. A few friends came over for a barbecue and the back yard is perfect for a gathering. It was so quiet when we woke up each morning, yet the coming and going of all the surfers on the weekend, walking up and down in front of the house provided entertainment. Speaking of surfers, this house was made for them. besides being a stones throw from two breaks, it has a hot shower in the yard and a hot tub.

Access to the house went smoothly and the manager checked in with us to make sure everything was going well. We shall return!

Great place, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this house in the center of Bolinas. The living room and dining room are spacious and very comfortable. All of the bedrooms are a good size. The yard is really nice too. Its fun to sit on the porch and watch the surfers walk by all day.

We loved the location - close to the center of town, one block from the beach, and across the street from a tennis court.

The owner is very nice and responsive to questions.

Perfect little hideaway

  • 5 of 5

The house is great, with a surprising amount of room (we slept 8 comfortably). And best of all, you're a short walk from both the beach and town. The backyard is great here too.
