  • Relaxing escape

    "We were 2 old couples and 1 old dog off for a week away from the hustle and bustle of San Francisco, and we loved this place! Imagine strolling 30 feet down a sandy lane to the best part of Stinson beach. You don't even need shoes! We set up our beach spot within easy walking distance of the cottage as well as the cute little downtown and then let the relaxation begin. And it did, all week long. Jerry and Hollis met us to show us around the cottage, and we had everything we needed to cook the many meals we enjoyed together. There was plenty of space to hang out, especially when utilizing what we called 'the napping loft.' The loft space is just above the main living area, and is furnished with daybeds and a big, comfortable recliner. One can rest and read while listening to the conversation going on below, and choose whether to chime in or nod off. It so nice to be able to fall asleep to the sounds of loved ones talking! We could also walk to dinner, which freed us up to enjoy wine with our meals. The small grocery store had all the basics, and the bike rental place is right down the street. (They also rent snorkeling gear.) In fact, we only used our cars once or twice the whole week, when we wanted to explore further north. Highly recommended for those in search of a relaxing beach getaway!"

  • We love the Red House.

    "It's a beach house direct from central casting. Wooden stairs, generous decks, oversized sofas, puzzles, seashells , books all just steps from the beach and with a fenced-in yard. We appreciated the yard. After chasing balls on the beach and running through the waves, our two dogs were safely enclosed as they dozed and dried off in the sun. It was an unexpected gift--our schedule and the Red House's coincided; there we were for a mid week three day break at the end of August. Quiet mornings, long beach walks, strolls to town for indulgent breakfasts led to reading on the deck, pausing to take in the ocean. We settled in for afternoon naps deciding among the sofas in the expansive living room, the extra deep one in the snug den off the kitchen or on a lounge chair outside on the upper deck. We chose a break from cooking in favor of walking the five minutes to town each night to try a different spot for dinner. Had we been game, the well-appointed kitchen offered a light, bright and airy space to prepare meals. At night we left the door open to the deck off the bedroom to let the full sound of the surf lull us to sleep and gently wake us in the morning. The Red House is a special place--warm, welcoming, comfortable. The owners clearly understand beach houses and their community. Notes by the phone guide you to their favorite places and to appreciate their town. It's personal enough so you know someone cares, but not so much that it overwhelms or intrudes. It is a family home for you to make your own."

  • Amazing Vacation

    "My husband and I stayed here last year and loved it so much that this year we brought our 2 kids. There was plenty of room for us all and we loved waking up to the most wonderful views of the ocean and the mountains. My son and husband walked down to Parkside for breakfast and then picked up items from the market on the way home. The beach was never crowded and just a short walk from the house. The house was clean and had everything we needed. It was such a treat to wake up and turn on the gas fire place that warmed the whole house perfectly. We are planning on making this an annual vacation spot. Thanks to Jennifer, the owner, for being in touch while we were there and offering a perfect place to stay."

  • 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!"
