Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath-walking distance to beach/town

Beautiful setting with rustic elegance: a newly remodeled two-bedroom guesthouse. Master includes king size and twin bed, en suite bathroom with shower. Guest room includes queen bed, private bath with tub. State of the art kitchen with all amenities, Viking gas stove, cutlery and crockery, pantry, laundry, modern appliances with toaster oven and microwave, Nespresso, French press and drip coffee makers, separate teapot. Large open living/dining room with full sea views, wood-burning fireplace, Sonos sound system, flat screen TV, internet (not always high speed). The views are of the pacific, the Bolinas lagoon and Mountain ridge, Stinson Beach along the coast to San Francisco. Inner courtyard with comfortable outdoor furniture allows for relaxing or reading--all to the sound of waves crashing on the beach below. This is one of the most beautifully situated ocean bluff properties in Bolinas----a town rich in character and history within walking distance of everything you need. You can watch the sunrise from the house or sit out on "the perch" to watch the surfers and seals below, or the ships in the distance on their way to and from San Francisco. Hawks, egrets, and blue herons are common sights as are deer and fox. Beachcombers walk the beaches below. Thousands of acres of protected open space surround Bolinas. The garden surrounding the house includes a badminton court, flowers, fruit trees and a trampoline with places to walk and sit. The beach and town are a short walk and a 24-hour organic produce stand is a long walk or short drive from the house, operating on the honor system. This unique village with its small population, museum, library, crafts, fishing boats, fresh catch, and surfing, is a little bit of a bohemian paradise within an hour of San Francisco. Accessible via highway 1, with Point Reyes to the north, and Stinson Beach to the south, perfectly situated for a relaxing, unique holiday removed from the action of city life.

Bolinas Blue is an exceptional dreamy home with everything you possibly want or need to get away.

  • 5 of 5

We travel a bit and always seek to rent homes when we do. I can unequivocally say this was the most fantastic home (and experience renting a vacation home) we have ever visited. Prior to our arrival, the correspondence with the home owner was prompt, professional, and polite. In the days leading up to our arrival, the property manager was responsive and informative. And Bolinas Blue....wow. Amazing. This extraordinary well kept home and property is gorgeously situated on a bluff overlooking the entrance to the Bolinas lagoon, an incredible view of the entire crescent of Stinson Beach, and the night time twinkles of SF from the huge picture windows of the living room.The house was so tastefully adorned, serene, spacious, and really comfortable. The thoughtful amenities, from the entertainment to utensils, were all top quality. The kitchen offered every possible cooking/dining convience imaginable. Bedrooms, bedding, bathrooms (heated floors), all impressive and comfortable. We hosted my wife's parents for five nights and this wonderful home had the space to accommodate everyone's needs, while also providing opportunities for privacy when desired. It was a pleasure and real privilege to have had the opportunity to stay at this uncommon and exceptional home. A heartfelt and genuine thank you to our hosts - we hope to be back!

Spectacular Property; Gracious Host; Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

Bolinas Blue is an amazing property. It is a two bedroom house that sits on top of a bluff overlooking the crescent beach cove below. The house is meticulous with comfortable, top line furnishings and a gourmet kitchen. It has an amazing living room with floor to ceiling glass windows overlooking the waters. It does not have direct beach access and is a short walk into town. Climbing the hill may be a struggle for those with impairments. While we loved exploring the area, we could not wait to return "home" to hang out, read or sit in the backyard with cheeses and wine. JC, the property manager, is great. I initially thought the cost was high for the area -- until we arrived. Bolinas Blue is well worth the price and our family can't wait to return.

Owner's Response: Dear Peter, Thank you for your lovely review. So sorry we were not there to meet in person but JC said you were the perfect guests. I had to laugh when you mentioned climbing the hill back to the house from the beach. Having lived there for 30 years, it never occurred to me that it was a problem. The five-seven minute walk always seemed so pleasant. I will make sure to note that in the future for people not used to our hills. Best, Nancy (& Sid)

Our Second visit - because it's that lovely!

  • 5 of 5

This was everything we had hoped for, and more. The wonderfully decorated home, with it's elegant yet relaxed atmosphere has everything you'll need. That, coupled with the natural beauty of the setting makes this the perfect spot in Bolinas.

In addition, it is graciously managed by the owners.

Thank you! to Nancy, Sid, and Molly
