Stinson Beach Cottages With Sunny Vintage Charm

Nestled between the Pacific and Mt. Tamalpais, these beach house rentals in California’s Stinson Beach are a throwback to the sweet and simple surf shacks of a bygone era.

A family’s go-to happy place to play and enjoy the California coast and named after their favorite trails on Mt. Tamalpais that lead directly from the property, the cottages were a dream purchase and a labor of love to restore and share. Designed with an eye towards all the things they love about the area, they’ve included all of the details that inspire a relaxing and carefree holiday together. 

A top to bottom renovation hasn’t diminished their simple charm, with breezy whitewashed interiors that capture that sunny California mood and a collection of art, decor, and treasures sourced from antique shops that give them that vintage personality.

Description

Consisting of two connected but separate residences, each of the two cottages have their own entrances and private gardens that provide individual areas for privacy as well as convivial social areas to share.

Steep Ravine Cottage has a large ground floor living room flooded with light and a separate dining room along with a brand new country-style kitchen. One of two full baths are here. Upstairs, the master has a gorgeous ocean view, a full bath, and there are two additional double rooms that sleep up to six total. (Note that the third bedroom can only be accessed through the second bedroom). There is an additional sleeping nook, perfect for a not-too-tall child in the second bedroom.

The wrap-around deck is the spot for ocean and mountain viewing over morning coffee or a glass of wine at sunset. 

The gardens have a heated dining lounge and fire pit to gather round and a separate outdoor shower to wash the sand off.

The one-story Dipsea is similar in tone and design with breezy and bright whitewashed interiors, a spacious living room that includes a deluxe daybed and a fully equipped kitchen. There are two double en suite bedrooms, one with a private garden entrance and a nice clawfoot soaking tub.  

The spacious gardens are perfect for dining al fresco with a grill and a fire pit for summer evenings and a brand new hot tub. 

This is a great compound for family and friends to share and be immersed in the magic of Stinson Beach.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Wifi throughout, SmartTV, climate control, kitchen and bath amenities, laundry facilities, beach amenities incuding blankets, boards, chairs, shades provided.

MARIN COUNTY

Ideally situated in the heart of the village for a morning coffee, and a two-minute walk to either the beach or the trailheads.

Western Marin county is an area of great natural beauty and picturesque California coastline. Part of the Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary and Mt. Tamalpais State Park, Stinson Beach, and the over one thousand acres of protected wetlands and estuaries in the Bolinas Lagoon are home to migratory shorebirds, harbor seals, and other wildlife. 

Just three blocks from one of the finest stretches of coastline, this property also has access to the state park trails and countryside, ideal for all types of outdoor recreation. From the Muir Woods redwood forests to Point Reyes seashore, the dazzling natural beauty is some of the best California has to offer. Just thirty minutes north of San Francisco, you can visit the city or stay in the Marin region for great shops, markets, and restaurants in the quaint towns of Point Reyes, Tomales, and Inverness.

Nearby Bolinas has steadfastly remained a small and sleepy town dedicated to the simple life, with a handful of shops cafes and a reclusive attitude. It’s one of those places you hope stays that way…

House Rules

SEPTIC — THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO READ CLOSELY!!!

All of Stinson plumbing operates on septic. There is no centralized plumbing system in our little village on the coast, so each dwelling has a tank and treatment system built into its property. We just replaced our entire septic system in the late fall of 2019 so it functions very well! However, there are some very important limitations to any septic system:

NOTHING but human waste and toilet paper can go down the toilets. All feminine products should be disposed of in the waste bins provided.
LIGHT USE is appreciated! Take a bath, rinse in the outdoor showers, but be mindful. Shorter showers are better than long ones. Several baths on one day would be problematic.
We have disposals in the kitchen, so food can be processed down the sink, but please, NO GREASE. Grease clogs up the system and leads to big trouble. Please collect grease in the can provided on the countertop and dispose into the green compost bin outside.

ARRIVAL

Check in is at 4 pm. Each of the front doors of the cottages have two locks. Only the top deadlock will be locked when you arrive, and it is controlled by a smart keypad (code above). Once inside, feel free to use any of the other locks on the outside doors, however we will not be providing the keys for those doors. So, be very careful not to lock the front door lower locks because you might lock yourself out!

The gate outside the Matt Davis studio is controlled by another keypad but the combination lock doesn’t work. If you’d like to lock this door, do so from the inside. To get in, you can always access through the next gate along the fence.

PARKING

There are four definite parking spots with the Whole Shebang. Two are in the driveway on Arenal Ave, although you could possibly tandem park a third car there. The other two spots are along Marine Way in front of the gates. If for some reason the Marine Way spots are taken, we apologize! We will do our best to keep people away from the spots, but it gets very intense out there with parking, especially on warm summer weekends. The good news is that most of the day folks take off by sundown leaving you a chance to move your car to that spot at that point.

EXTRA GUESTS NOT ALLOWED

It is essential that you let us know exactly how many guests you’ll have and that you do not exceed that number. Because of the septic, we can only handle 14 guests at the time. If not, we are at risk of maxing out the system. If we learn that you have exceeded your stated number of guests, we will charge a penalty to your security deposit. This is a really important thing to note. This also means absolutely no parties for many reasons – neighbors, septic, and the spirit of this rental. If you do have a party, we will keep your entire security deposit.

HOT TUB

We are thrilled to have a brand new hot tub bought and installed in July 2020. If you choose to use the hot tub, there are some very important things to note:
Seawater will turn the water green and murky and we will have to drain the whole tub. To avoid this, please take a shower before getting in the tub every time. Also, please do not wear the same suit you swam in in the ocean into the hot tub. Either keep an extra suit just for the tub, or go in the buff.
Rinse your feet of sand and dirt in the wash bin at the foot of the stairs entering the tub.
The hot tub is serviced each Monday. Kevin will come in on his own and leave a note when it’s done.
The hot tub will be checked before you arrive. It will be clean, clear and functioning for your use. If there is any issue during your stay, it will be your responsibility.
Do not move the control panel away from the hot tub. If it is lost or damaged, you will need to replace it.

QUIET HOURS

Stinson is a sleepy town without much of a party scene. Some of our neighbors are full time residents. It’s very, very important to us that they are not disturbed by our renters. Please enjoy the firepits and outdoor spaces before 10 pm. At that point, consider the place on quiet hours, so inside noise shouldn’t be heard from the outside.

SKYLIGHTS

Both skylights on the second floor open by remote. The remotes are attached to the wall in those rooms. PLEASE DO NOT ATTEMPT TO OPEN OR CLOSE THE SKYLIGHTS MANUALLY. Please be sure to CLOSE THE SKYLIGHTS BEFRE YOU LEAVE THE HOUSE in case of rain.

WINDOW COVERINGS

The Roman shades in the master and in the two living rooms are cordless. To operate, you just need to gently pull down or gently push up. Please be gentle with them and let us know if you have any issues.

GARBAGE/RECYCLING

The garbage bins are in the driveway and are shared by all three cottages. Please make use of the recycling and compost bins. There will be both a garbage can and recycling bin in or right outside of the kitchens of both cottages and inside the Matt Davis Studio. All recycling is combined in Stinson. There are also compost bins in each kitchen, so please put all kitchen scraps into the green bin in the driveway. The garbage is collected each Wednesday, so please put all cans out on the curb at the end of the driveway. They need to be facing the street two feet apart. The collectors are very picky about this and they won’t collect unless they are placed properly.

TV’s
The framed digital screens with art on them are actually tv’s! Press the home button on the remote to access netflix, etc. They are samsung frames if you need to google for any reason. You are welcome to sign in to any of the apps if you’d like to watch from your own accounts.

If you want to return to the art screen, press the power button.

FIREPITS

Feel free to get toasty around the firepits. Each is fueled by a propane tank tucked behind the furniture. Just open the valve to the tank to light. BE VERY SURE TO CLOSE THE TANK VALVE WHEN YOU ARE DONE USING.

WIFI

There are two wifi routers in the building. One is named 2 Marine Way and the other is 4 Marine Way. The passwords are the same – beachlife.

KEEPING THE SAND OUTTA THE HOUSE

This is a big one! We’ve gone to great lengths to make it very easy for you to help us keep sand out of the house. It is messy, hard to clean up, and will feel scratchy in your bed at night! Outside of each front door there is either an outdoor shower or a foot washing station. PLEASE USE THESE EVERY TIME YOU COME IN FROM THE BEACH.

The cottages are shoes-off spaces. We’ve left a locker full of slippers for you to wear while you’re inside. Please take your shoes off when you come into the cottage. Hopefully you’ll be barefoot or in flip flops most of the time, anyhow!

HEAT/AC

There is heat throughout the whole property and AC throughout the Steep Ravine. The heat/ac units are simple to use: Use the remote attached to the wall to turn on. Then press the mode button until it hits the sun for heat or the snowflake for AC. It will take 5 minutes or so to get going at first. There are four units total, one in the livingroom, and one in each bedroom upstairs. VERY IMPORTANT: you cannot use the AC in one room and the heat in another. If the heat or AC aren’t working, first check the other units to make sure they are all set on the same mode.

In the Double Dipsea, we’ve installed wall unit heaters that work very well. Simply turn the unit on and then set to a desired temperature.

VERY IMPORTANT: Please be sure to turn all heat/ac off when you check out. If you do leave a unit on, we will take a penalty out of your security deposit.

INDUCTION STOVE

The stove in the Steep Ravine has an induction cooktop. This cooktop works with magnetic heat, not electric radiating heat. So, the cooktop heats the pan through a transmition of magnetic energy when they make contact. For you cooks out there, it’s a really fabulous oven. It heats things very, very quickly!

LAUNDRY

There is a washer and dryer in the garage. There is a second set of laundry machines next to the kitchen of the Dipsea. Please only use the green cleaning products supplied to wash your clothes.

CHECKING OUT

Check out is at 10 am sharp. In order to get the space ready for the next check in, the housekeeping staff needs to start right away. If you are able to strip the beds and start a load of sheets and towels, that will speed up the cleaning process and lighten the load for the housekeepers. This is not required, but it would be much appreciated!

Please bring all potentially smelly trash to the outside bins, including kitchen trash and compost.

Please lock the back doors from the inside and lock the front door deadbolt using your code when you leave.

    The cottages are a lovey gateway to explore Stinson. The outdoor area is fantastic regardless of the season, and the location is super convenient. A wonderful stay.

    My family of 9 adults had a wonderful stay at the Cottages at Stinson Wendy has put in a lot of thought into the interior and exterior design that make this stay so memorable. The backyard setup with heat lamps, the heated bathroom floors, and the ocean view in the master are just a few! Wendy was very responsive and helpful in resolving a water issue (that did not impact our stay). She followed up with me the day after to ensure we had an amazing stay. I would definitely come back in the future.

    What a special and stylish private retreat in Stinson. We enjoyed gorgeous hikes, sunsets on the beach and lovely dinners on the spacious and heated deck. Wendy was a thoughtful and courteous host and responded to questions very promptly. We loved our weekend in Stinson!

    Incredible location, backyard, and hot tub. A great place to stay if you’re looking for proximity to trails, the beach, and a great outdoor spot.

    The beach cottages are amazing…comfortable, perfect location and beautifully decorated. They were perfect for our two families of four. Even in the cold weather we enjoyed group dinners at the outside table every night.

    The Cottages at Stinson was amazing and everything was as described and more! The quintessential beach cottage vibes with some awesome additional amenities all within walking distance of the beach and “downtown”. Great communication with the host as well. Would definitely visit again and recommend!

    The Cottages is a great property – very well set up for different types of groups, full of thoughtful touches, and great location to enjoy Stinson Beach. The property owner, Wendy, is very communicative and helpful. We would definitely return if the opportunity arises.

    This rental was wonderful for our group! The rooms were clean, well decorated, and comfortable. The location was also amazing! Right by the beach and very close to local shops and hiking trails. Wendy was extremely accommodating to our group and went above and beyond. She even had a grill brought to the house when she realized we had a lot of meat to cook up for dinner. Overall, an amazing stay and weekend away. I would definitely recommend this property for large groups.

    The Cottages at Stinson was a perfect spot for our long weekend get-away! The location is central and convenient but also a quiet, private retreat. The cottages are fresh and beautiful with decor that is relaxed, beachy and very tasteful. And the beds (even the couch and fold out mattress!) are all ridiculously comfortable. We can’t wait to come back. Thank you, Wendy!

    This place is amazing! We were some of Wendy’s first guests because apparently she just finished fixing the place up after buying it last year. It’s a total gem. We were two families and there was plenty of room to spread out, but also enough space in the steep ravine cottage to hang out all together. Crazy comfortable couch. Decor throughout is gorgeous, and the sheets and beds are super comfortable. Every detail was thought of – black out shades so we could sleep in, boogie boards and beach towels, very well stocked kitchens. And the location is perfection – right in the middle of it all, but on a quiet street. So close to the beach! We decided this will be our annual spot to stay at in Stinson.

    We had the most amazing stay at the Cottages at Stinson! Our two families nestled comfortably into the cottages with five kids between us – of course the cousins all loved piling up together in the two cozy rooms with the twin beds, and the adults were thrilled to have luxe bedding and our own bathrooms that felt way more elevated than your typical rental. Every detail of these chic, beautifully decorated cottages has been thought through to make your stay feel like a home-away-from-home. Loads of cute beach towels and snuggly throw blankets, fast WiFi and Bluetooth music through the TV, a well-stocked kitchen with gorgeous dishes and glasses. We made a big meal one night and gathered around the dining room table followed by puzzles and card games. Another night we had a delicious dinner just steps away at the Parkside Café. The fabulous, expansive beach beckons at all times of the day, and as close as it is, we found ourselves out for a long morning walk with our coffee, playing Frisbee and building sand castles after lunch and back again at Sunset to play keep away with the waves and take in the glorious final rays of the day. One of the best part of the Cottages is that they are a private oasis while being right in the heart of the adorable town of Stinson. It was great to be able to step out quickly for a latte or chocolate dipped cone at the walk-up counter at the Parkside, or pick up eggs and a loaf of bread at the market, or find the perfect book or puzzle at Stinson Beach Bookstore. There’s even a children’s playground in the tiny park a half a block away. I can’t recommend these perfect cottages enough, and cannot wait to return for more soul-nourishing serenity and calm.
