  • Perfect Family Vacation

    "The castle house was just wonderful ! It was a perfect place for two young children ages 18mos and 5 1/2.., the deck is beyond perfect and the proximity to the beach made the setting so surreal: The only complaint I had was that our stay was too short! Next year - 2 weeks! In addition the owner was quick to respond and everything was exactly as she said it would be.. We made great memories here!"

  • Excellent vacation get-away

    "This property meant all the demands of our family. Having the two full bathrooms, especially the one on the lower level is a real plus. The open layout, functional furnishings and superb views were another plus. The unit was very clean. This property owner was most receptive to our needs. When the sofa bed was not functioning, owner provided a twin mattress for our daughter, which was placed in the living room area. My few recommendations include: Advise ahead of time, or include in rental verbage bring a 6 or 8 roll supply of septic brand toilet paper. bring a roll of paper towels bring 2 small bottles of liquid hand soap for both bathrooms I would recommend buying a silicon spatula for this unit as this is needed with the teflon pots and frying pans. I did find a wooden one but a flat wide one would be easier for flipping pancakes and eggs. A set of unbreakable glasses for younger guests. Maybe a set of 4 dinner plates, bowls, and salad plates would be perfect. Corner grocery stocks all your needs, in case you decide not to bring perishables and non-perishables with you. Parkside Restaurant is perfect spot of dinner. We had dinner there on evenings. Reservations recommended. Bakery, which opens at 10a is a must go to spot for buying bread, breakfast pastries, and other odds and ends. Coffee kiosk in same area makes perfect coffee. The walk up and down from the complex justifies eating that fattening breakfast chocolate croissant, or other Danish of your choice. Daughter and grandkids went horseback riding. Daughter said it was an excellent facility with great guides and horses. Plan for a 2 hour morning ride, 9am start, and do make reservations. We drove to Marshalls to Hog Island Oyster Farm to bring back oysters for appetizers. Also stopped in Pt. Reyes on return from Marshalls to go to their large grocery for odds and ends, and bakery across the street for morning pastries. Their rasberry brumble is must have. A long 1 1/2 hour drive to the UC Davis oceanography site in tip top of Pt. Reyes. Tours provided only on Fridays only from 2 - 4pm. Of course the beach is a plus. Daughter rented boogie boards for 11 year old grandson to ride the waves. 14 year old granddaughter and daughter enjoyed sitting and relaxing on the beach. I would not hesitate to return to this property and would strongly recommend it to friends and clients. As a professional travel agent, I am careful with places I stay and recommend."

  • Seaside Paradise

    "First, the ocean beckons as you turn down the lane. Then, when you step through The Little Whaler's gate, you'll catch the waves whispering: "You're here". Next - just lift the latch, and the dearest little cottage-by-the-sea opens its arms and fairly sings "Welcome Home"! "Charming perfection" is not an exaggeration. Every square inch is exactly what I'd do, if this was my beach home (and if I'd thought of it.) We felt like pampered house guests, enjoying the owner's creative and solicitous hospitality - almost too relaxed to leave our private paradise. But one should adventure into the historic and engaging small town, at least for the incredible breakfasts and enchanting book store. The Little Whaler is a big hit with us! Can't wait to return."

  • Perfect getaway for families with teens

    "Renting Stan's place in Stinson beach was the best vacation choice to celebrate the end of the school year with our teens. The house comes with kayak's and a laser sailboat that we all loved using on the lagoon. We walked along the beach everyday and did hikes on Mount Tam. The house was so comfortable for our 2 families (we rented with our friends, so 4 adults and 3 teens). We had movie nights in the comfortable living room with the giant TV. I would definitely recommend this home to friends."
