  • Comfortable cottage close to town

    "My wife and I spent two nights in this comfortable cottage while hiking Mt. Tam. It is accurately described in the listing. The house is easily accessible by foot (if you don't mind climbing a hill) from the village of Stinson Beach (market, shops, restaurants, beach). While it is an older home it is very clean, with updated kitchen and bath. Very comfortable living room well furnished. There is a TV monitor and DVD but no cable or TV reception. We enjoyed the quiet. If you are desperate for the daily blab bring your Iphone --- there is Apple TV. The kitchen appears to be well-equipped, although admittedly we did not cook. King Size bed in master bedroom very comfortable. Plenty of linens and towels. The "bonus room" is appropriate for children or close family. It is necessary to walk through the bonus room to get to the bathroom from the master bedroom or the living room. After our hikes we enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub, which is shielded enough from neighbors to be clothing optional. We would definitely return here again and recommend without reservation to our friends, even if the two motels in Stinson weren't such dumps."

  • Great Winter Getaway!

    "Great Winter Getaway! This is not one of the tony luxury homes at Stinson Beach. It's more than that, mainly because of its location and history. Beyond 100 years old, this cottage started life as the office for tent camping at Willow Camp, which is what Stinson Beach was called a century or so ago, before it became Stinson Beach and before there was a road in. So the old dowager can be forgiven if her floors are a bit uneven and her layout just slightly odd compared with the mansions nearby. There's a photo of her in her youth, in 1912, on the wall near the kitchen. She is still a perfect place for a couple or two couples or a couple with a kid or two and a kid's friend or two to spend a weekend, or a week or whatever … the kitchen and dining area are well appointed, there's a great king-sized platform bed in one corner of the living room, and two double beds in the back bedroom. Assorted love seats and chairs add comfort. Best of all, it's just steps from the beach itself and just a bit over a quarter-mile from the main intersection in town and the grocery store, several restaurants, a jewelry shop, an antique store, an art gallery, a fine little book shop, and other diversions. In the back yard there's a separate viewing deck that gives a great beach view and is the perfect place to sit for wine hour and watch the sunset. The front porch also offers a view of a chunk of beach and of Calle del Sierra from entrance to end. There's a hot tub and assorted beach toys for folks to enjoy. In short, the cottage is comfy and cozy and not so richly appointed that you'll fret overly about the kids causing minor damage. We found it the perfect winter getaway. In winter, there aren't that many folks out and about, except maybe on weekends. You can take long beach walks and/or just sit and enjoy the constantly changing weather. Turn up the heaters if it's cold, leave the door open if it's not. If you are brave and skilled enough, surf, boogie-board or bodysurf the big winter waves but look out for debris when the tide is way up. Bored? Visit picturesque nearby Bolinas or Pt. Reyes Seashore or drive up to Pt. Reyes Station. Or do what we did one evening: play Charades and Scrabble! Definitely our kind of place, we can hardly wait to go back!"

  • Great Stinson family rental

    "This past weekend, my wife, 2 toddlers (4 year old twins), 17 year old daughter, Friend with his own toddler (4) and 7 year old all stayed at this "Comfortable family beach house". This is the second time in the past two years that we have stayed at this home and every time I walk away with such a great experience. My only regrets is wishing we could stay longer. The owner has done an excellent job stocking the kitchen and bathrooms with everything you could want to cook or take care of your family. We stay at a lot of VRBO rentals, but always find they are missing measuring cups, or some basic spices, or paper products. But at this place, every time I turned around it was like being at home. We brought the food and drinks, but everything else was covered. The home was clean, spacious, child friendly and a perfect distance to the beach. If and when the fog came up, there was plenty to do back at the house and it was wind protected there also. Although we were not a big party, we had a bunch of cars, which is always a problem in Stinson. There was plenty of parking, on the property, behind locked gates for all of our cars. The owners were very accommodating and met every need and/or want we had. I can not say enough, and will definitely return as soon as possible."

  • 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."
