One bedroom rustic cabin sits off the cliff side above Agate Beach with beautiful walking trails to Jack's Creek and a 2 mile bike ride away from Bolinas Beach, where you can ride gentle surf and visit the charming town of Bolinas.

Quiet and Peaceful with Ocean Breeze. We are in the country and it does happen that we can have encounters with deer, fox, raccoons, frogs and sometimes mice.
  • Great place, cozy, one block from the cliffs and beach. Highly recommend!

  • The location and cabin was great, unique and close to several quiet places to check out in the surrounding area. Nice get away

  • Laura’s place is a little slice of perfection at the edge of the world.

    Alan2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Rustic getaway on a dirt road in Bolinas, surrounded bu green and with all the mostly analog amenities. Comfortable bed, kitchen with all the basics, fireplace as well as hot air blowers that are pretty decent space heaters. Hiking on the beach, good eats in town and nearby, especially if you like seafood, but if you want to shop and fix your meals it is confortable to do so there. I think it would be a sweet space for anyone doing something créative that wanted no distractions from internet, but could benefit from walking breaks and the proximity of the ocean and hills full of pines trails, as well as a romantic break away from it all. Pets are OK as well though we left our doggy home. I loved the area and easy to access from SF.

  • Good spot for a getaway from the city! Laura is fast to respond.

    Christine2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Gorgeous! A perfect escape.

    Billy2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Bolinas is a must visit, and Laura’s cabin is perfect for that! The cabin is honestly more accommodating than the pictures do justice. Had my dog with me and he did not want to leave. I will warn that you should make food plans ahead of time, the cabin is a bit off the beaten path, although a short drive will get you groceries or a short order meal.

    Peaceful two bedroom home with yurt close to Agate Beach in Bolinas with organic vegetable garden.
    My house is located just a few minutes walk from Agate Beach, and is a perfect retreat from city life! Enjoy a flourishing organic garden, meditative strolls to the ocean, and quick access to the beautiful hiking trails of Marin County.
    Rugged yet peaceful Agate Beach is a five minute walk from our home, and downtown Bolinas is a 20 minute walk.
  • This is an incredibly beautiful, inviting, peaceful home. We loved everything about it and would like to return again!

    Donna2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time at Liza’s place!

    Sandy2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Liza’s home is warm and inviting with many thoughtful touches. The garden, cottage and yurt make it a very special getaway. The home is just minutes from central Bolinas and the beach. We would very much stay again.

    Kate2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Liza’s place was perfect for a quiet relaxing getaway. Very clean and comfortable. Loved the bedroom and custom designed bath, making fires and listening to the ocean. Thank you Liza

    Seanna2020-01-29T00:00:00Z

  • We loved our stay! Beautiful place, perfect location. Excellent pizza downstairs :)

    Lauren2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful, clean, comfortable refuge in beautiful Bolinas. The room is sparely decorated but the bed is comfortable, everything is spacious (the bathroom especially), they stock some wonderful local skincare products for you to use, and overall we found it a peaceful, relaxing, perfect getaway.

    Genevieve2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • Okay. Needs a little more love though.

    Jennifer & John2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • really very nice!

    Margaret2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our peaceful stay here and the delicious dinner downstairs. As an added bonus, there are lovely bath and skincare products made locally that are in the room to try out. 10/10 would stay again and probably get a facial or massage nearby.

    Taryn2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • This is our 2nd time staying. Always a lovely and relaxing experience. We'll be back!

    Anne2019-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely, getaway. Very simple but all you need. Luxurious and there is a great bathtub!

    Nicholas2019-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay at this room above the cafe. The bathtub was a huge hit after a day hiking. Everything was very clean and appeared in almost brand new condition. We got the feeling that the cafe is the priority and the rooms are sort of an afterthought - in other words expect no amenities, welcome beverage or extra attention from the owners. But still a nice place to stay if you want to spend time in Bolinas.

    Bolinas, CA, United States

    I travel the world searching out interesting people and places, and this place is where I choose to live. Bo is one of the most special places on the planet. You can literally look out over the Pacific Ocean and see San Francisco, arguably the most thriving city on the planet. Meanwhile in Bolinas there is an honor system farmstand as you drive into town, where you literally put money in the metal box and take your produce--and eggs!
    The town is small, and most people live on the big mesa, which is nice, but you will probably be getting in a car to go into the super cute town with everything from a general store to a bar that’s been there since 1851 to a hardware store complete with lumber yard! Cool thing about my place, it’s on the little mesa, which means you can walk to downtown, and the beach. Yes, it’s a 5 minute stroll to the beach, and honor system bookstore. My favorite part about my place though, is the front deck. You can see the ocean from it, and hear the waves crash, which is much louder at night--so leave the bedroom cracked and you can fall asleep to the ocean. The deck is surrounded by beautiful trees and succulent garden. This mean you can actually sit outside in the shade and enjoy the deck all day long. And I even have a yoga mat that you can use on the deck, just give the deck a little sweep first. The apartment is the downstairs unit of Captain Marco and Babette's house. They're about as cool as it gets and are a huge value add for staying here! He's a slightly crusty sailboat captain and race car driver. She continues to hone her skills as one of the most amazing people on the planet. And lastly, and most importantly. The internet sucks. It’s pretty much the bain of my existence. The good news is that because this is something I care so much about, we pretty much have the best achievable internet in Bolinas. I have satellite, DSL, my work requires that I be online. There is a TV with Apple. There’s so much more, but I’ll let you discover it. Enjoy your stay.
    Walking distance to one of the cutest downtowns in the world. The beach is even closer!
  • This spot is perfectly charming and serene. The living space has huge windows with views out to the ocean but is tucked away in the garden so it feels private. The kitchen is well stocked, and the dining area is a good spot to eat or get work done (wifi is excellent). The patio is a perfect place to eat outside on nice evenings and watch the sunset. It's a beautiful 6 minute walk to the beach and all the shops and restaurants on Wharf Road.

    Mary Beth2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing location and great space for a weekend getaway.

    Brianna2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great place for a couple to escape the city scene. Well appointed, panoramic views of the ocean and welcoming hosts. We really enjoyed the lagoon and beach. Highly recommended.

    William2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Even better than the pics! Clean, comfortable, and fantastic views. I was super cozy in the freshly pressed sheets that smelled fabulous...and equally happy sipping my coffee and watching surfers. Sooo glad I discovered this gem!

    Jen2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome spot!!! Location can’t be beat 5 min beautiful walk to the beach and town. Babette is a dream and the ocean sounds at night can’t be beat. Relaxing on the deck also a plus!! Would totally recommend and come back again and again!

    Megan2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • This is a wonderful space. It is just up the hill from Bolinas beach and downtown. The road up is a bit tight and one way, but walkable for those up for the adventure who don’t want to get back in the car. The space is roomy and comfortable. My husband and I absolutely loved our stay!

    Katie2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Third stay and the unit has new everything! A great place made even better! We have fallen for Bolinas and look forward to our next visit!

    Bryan2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • This is a must stay on your trip...minutes from the ocean and the perfect place to stay along the coast. Had a wonderful meal and wine at Eleven in Bolinas with such amazing people. We hiked Muir Woods and Point Reyes...ate fresh oysters at the cutest bar in Olema and listened to a fabulous bluegrass band at The Western in Point Reyes. We made the most out of our two days there. Cannot wait to go back...everything was perfect!

    This 2 story cottage is situated in a lovely rambling garden in Bolinas. Good parking and private entrance. Downstairs is the common area with kitchenette, dining nook and a very confirmable queen size pull out sofa. The bedroom upstairs, accessible via a spiral staircase, is bright and sunny and has a a view of Mount Tam. The Shower and toilet room are separate and on the downstairs level.
    This classic West Marin cottage is owner built and very unique. The downstairs space opens up to a lovely private sunny deck in the garden . The cottage is bright and airy, with fun and innovative architectural details. It is walking distance from downtown Bolinas and the surrounding beaches. There is a shared outdoor shower ,that we ask the guests to use after the beach or surfing.
    The neighborhood is quiet residential. Only a 10 minute walk to famous Agathe Beach for tide pool watching. 15-20 minute walk to the pretty downtown of Bolinas, Sandy Beach and great surf.
  • The cottage was a wonderful weekend escape — it was charming and well designed, and the cozy loft bedroom overlooks a lush garden, which made us feel relaxed instantly upon our arrival. The home has so many nice details (our favorite was a very unique glass-roof indoor shower), and the hosts were exceptionally friendly. We will absolutely be back!

    Lauren2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • This is what airbnb is all about! A beautiful quirky place in a fantastic secluded location. The place is super nice -- with details like an amazing all glass shower. Paulette had prepared it really nice with coffee, milk and some muffins ready when we arrived, and she and her husband were wonderful hosts. The bedroom is on a second story loft with an access by an outdoor stairs. So not ideal for mid-night bathroom need. But that's well worth it in order to get to stay here.

    Oscar2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Just a lovely cottage, sparkling clean, with great communication from our host Paulette. We learned the cottage was built by Paulette's husband, a now-retired builder, and his craftsmanship shows throughout. We'll come again when the garden is in!

    Karl2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • We had wonderful stay at this property- great hosts and beautiful location

    Richard2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • This was the perfect spot for our low-key girlfriend’s getaway. It had enough space for 4 people and was so close to the beach/town. It’s a very unique and charming home, sparkling clean, and it is truly a gem in Bolinas. We hope to come back sometime!

    Abby & JJ2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed a lovely two-night stay at Paulette's cottage. It's one-of-a-kind, cute, well-appointed and well-located. The garden surrounding the cottage is also beautiful. Paulette is a very gracious and responsive host. Will definitely come back when we visit the area again.

    Freda2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • I had a great time staying in Bolinas. I was visiting my friend who lives next door so it was super convenient. Easy to get to Stinson beach or Point Reyes. House is clean and decorated beautifully inside and out!

    Erena2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Paulette has created a beautiful, clean, modern space - I really enjoyed my stay and would highly recommend her property to anyone.

    Joey2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • My boyfriend and I stayed here for a little weekend getaway and couldn't have been more pleased. The garden was a beautiful sanctuary and a wonderful sight to wake up to. The space was small and cozy, perfect for two! The outdoor shower was an adventure, as we arrived on a very windy day, so keep the shower curtain shut took some work but it gave us a great story :) I would definitely come back in the future and recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet, peaceful getaway from the city!

    Briana2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Cozy, bright and very peaceful. Easy walk to the ocean and a quick drive into town. The Coast Café has a great breakfast and a friendly staff. Our hosts were quick to communicate whenever we had a question. Thanks for a lovely stay!

    Mark2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot, quiet and peaceful. Host was very helpful.

    Gini2020-02-20T00:00:00Z

    Emily2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • I enjoyed and appreciated all the loveliness and serenity that the place brought. Very quiet, clean and Johnathon went above and beyond during my stay. My heartfelt Thanks.

    Gini2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • This place is just lovely. Cozy, comfy, and in the most beautiful garden! Two things to know: not a ton of privacy (just a curtain) with the toilet, which was fine for us because we are way past being demure w each other, but it could be awkward if you aren't at that stage in the relationship 😂 Shower too- it's outside (which I love) so if you're a very modest person, bring a robe. But all in all, it was a perfect stay in a breathtaking place, and we were very very happy.

    Get ready for a peaceful cabin retreat, complete with hot tub, and a cozy propane "wood" stove! Explore the nearby world-famous Duxbury Reef tide pools and a sandy beach. The second bedroom is a large, open loft. We provide white noise machines in both sleeping areas, in case your family has different sleep schedules. Cooks have all the tools needed to prepare a gourmet meal. Video tour: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=miEHywUTL10&feature=youtu.be
    The neighborhood is secluded, peaceful and quiet. The cabin is situated on the mesa, which overlooks the beautiful Pacific coast. From the cabin, take a five minute walk to the cliff to enjoy an spectacular sunset from the cliff. The last three blocks of the route are dirt roads. There is very little traffic or noise of any kind--just birds, deer, quail and other wildlife.
  • We had the best time, hot tub was great after hiking, quiet neighborhood great house, looking forward to staying there again

    Susie2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Secluded spot. Pleasant. Bumpy, dirt road for a bit to get there. 20 minute walk to beach. Hot tub a real bonus. Four people at most. Very nice.

    Jay2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • This house was beautiful and so cool! The large windows provided a beautiful view of the yard and the ocean could be heard from the deck. The house was very roomy and had everything we needed. Elina provided great directions for driving to the house and getting to the beach. Would love to visit again!

    Kellie2020-02-26T00:00:00Z

    Evan2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent getaway in Bolinas with great touches for a family. There were children's books and everything in the kitchen needed to cook. IN the morning we drank coffee and watched the fog roll out. Just note, there are some dirt roads and windy highway to get to the place but otherwise it was amazing!

    Michelle2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Elina's place is a gem for sure. It is spacious, Has a beautiful view to watch all the critters and nature abound. The hot tub is the best thing after a long day exploring and surfing. Looking forwards to returning.

  • Had a lovely stay at Sally's place. The garden is gigantic, beautiful, and peaceful. I started each day sitting by the fish pond / fountain... just the restorative experience I needed. The accommodations are very comfortable, clean, cozy.. there's a kitchenette that had coffee, milk, fruit, cereal... a small fridge, microwave, dishes... nice shower with good pressure / hot water.. And Sally is lovely, had several pleasant conversations, she introduced me to her artwork, kitties, fish.. (by request). Would definitely visit again!

    Colin2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Very pleasant location, and Sally was an excellent host to us. Very communicative and made the whole process a breeze. The location was excellent as well and her garden was stunning.

    Regan2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Piece of paradise on Sally’s oasis. Fun place to visit.

    Jo-Ann2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Sally’s place was just what I needed. I chose Sally’s place as a personal retreat. The beach is a 10 minute walk and I was the only person there. I drove to Point Reyes for an afternoon. It was a perfect retreat space. It would also be ideal for a romantic getaway. If you want to watch a movie, download before you arrive as the WiFi isn’t strong enough for streaming. The drive from San Francisco is gorgeous and goes along around the pacific coast. Thank you, Sally!

    Barb2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Sally was a pleasure to meet and the beautiful garden suite, well, is insanely gorgeous and helps one slow down, and walk and sit and be. We did thoroughly enjoy the garden and the room itself is cosy and warm. The beds are very comfortable, and the showers water pressure is massage like. I sat on the porch, in the sun, listening to the wind and waves in the slight distance. It was wonderful also to be surrounded by Sally's flower paintings. The kitchen is well stocked for breakfast, and Sally was happy to give us some ice cubes from her freezer in the evening. It was a perfect garden getaway! Thank you for being part of our New Year's experience, never to be forgotten. All our best always!!!

    Amelia2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • A real gem in Bolinas. A charming and very comfortable suite. Sally is a wonderful host!

    Adam2019-12-29T00:00:00Z

    Melisa2019-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • This a charming and wonderful apartment, separate entrance attached to the main house. Kitchenette, bedroom, and bath, with access to a beautiful garden and outdoor patio areas. The surrounding area is gorgeous, and Bolinas is a cute and funky little town, with cafes, saloons, shops, and surfers.

    My Fishermen's cottage is great for families (with kids). It has fantastic views across the water to SF. Very quaint and charming. The cottage is located on the bluff in Bolinas. This is a quiet retreat, away from the stresses of life! Enjoy a short walk down to Agate beach, at low tide there are many tide pools to explore. Get cozy by the fire after a day at the beach. Appreciate a beautiful sunset while barbecuing on the porch.
    This is a primitive but cozy cabin with a wood-burning stove, we provide firewood. Plenty of seating in the dining/living area, it is a wonderful place to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Sleeps 4 This is the perfect place to get away from it all, even your phone! WIFI data is limited, but emailing and basic web searches are ok.
    This is a somewhat remote neighborhood with dirt roads, the ocean is all around you! Enjoy the view from the cottage, Agate beach is a stunning beach! It is about a 10-15 min walk from the cottage or a 5 min drive. Go at low tide if you want to explore the tide pools.
  • We loved our stay at Isabelle’s beach cottage. It was perfect for a quiet weekend.

    Julia2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Great little cabin type place. Awesome views nearby and great places to walk and hike.

    Daniel2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • Cozy little cabin in a lovely location. Even during a rainstorm it was enough to have a fire going and play board games. Deer grazing on the front lawn, the sound of waves crashing in the background, morning walks to the water. Good for kids. We’d definitely stay here again.

    Gina2019-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very simple cottage in an absolutely gorgeous location. A great place to unplug.

    John2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • Isabelle’s little house is at the quiet – west - end of Bolinas. It is a modest house, simply furnished, very much to our taste. It has a good view of the coastal range and a bit of the ocean, and is very quiet. Everything was well prepared for us and clean. The kitchen equipment is more extensive than many Airbnb rentals. If/when we go back to Bolinas we will certain want to stay at Isabelle’s house again.

    Paul2019-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • We really loved Isabelle's cottage! We have friends in Bolinas and have visited several times before. It is a truly magical mesa, and Isabelle's place provided the ideal Bolinas experience. The cottage is cozy and at the same time spacious — we were four and fit very comfortably. The view is unparalleled — we saw several full-moon sunsets over the ocean! Agate Beach is a short walk away, very dramatic and exciting! We love the town of Bolinas as well. We like to cook, and Isabelle's kitchen is perfectly appointed. We used the grill as well, which was fantastic. Isabelle was very responsive and helpful with any questions. One of our top experiences!

  • We had a wonderful, cozy weekend at Sha Sha's place. It's within easy walking distance of the beach, wharf road, and basically everything in Bolinas. Convenient and comfortable - we enjoyed a great getaway. We'd love to stay here again.

    Kristen2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Sha Sha’s place reminded me a lot of my parents home — an old farm house in rural Indiana. Noticing the familiar intricacies and quirks of a less modern way of home-life made for an especially unique and enjoyable experience. Outside the cottage, it’s a short walk to town and/or the beach, which is convenient. We found yoga to be a perfect two-night stop along our CA-1 road trip, with beautiful routes going north and south from Bolinas.

    Tim2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Such a unique and unforgettable experience, Sha Sha’s place is a piece of art, from its architecture, to its decoration, fixtures and appliances. Very well located as well, and so well blended in the charming bolinas feel. Our kids loved discovering every little corner of this hobbit’s house and its surroundings.

    Stephan2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you Sha Sha for sharing your home and giving us the most wonderful weekend. Where to even begin? Cozy, charming, incredibly well located -- we loved every second of it. Whether we were enjoying a cup of coffee by the fire, soaking in the outdoor tub, or taking a serene walk down to the beach with our pup -- we got exactly what was needed. There's so much character coming out from every corner of this cottage and Sha Sha was thoughtful to have these cute little signs to help us navigate. What an incredible host she is, Sha Sha checked in to make sure everything was good on our end. Couldn't of asked for more. Highly recommended if you're looking for a picture-perfect getaway as a couple.

    Michael2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic, and very eclectic, home in the heart of Bolinas. My wife, 6 month old, and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Highly recommend.

    Nick2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • The cabin was awesome, located right near the beach and also a short walk to town. Classic northern California style, with super unique interior. One nice thing is that the kitchen is very well stocked, it has everything needed for cooking and baking.

    Anders2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • I really enjoyed my stay here, the cozy wood stove, the sweet soaking tubs, eclectic artwork and being a nice, easy walk to the beautiful beach, where parking is limited, was a big plus!

    David2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely magical, absolutely once-in-a-lifetime, absolutely perfect. Staying here was a dream come true, and just two nights felt like a year in paradise- we left feeling creatively, spiritually, and emotionally restored. It's hard to convey how many thoughtful and fun details Sha Sha has included in this Bolinas-incarnate home. Every room is designed to heal and center, is peppered with antiques and art and quirks, skylights and plants abound, a private Japanese tub outside fills quickly and offers a few of a massive songbird-filled eucalyptus tree, a sound system can pipe jazz into almost every room while you cook in the cute kitchen or use the grill outside, fluffy robes are laid out, and there are endless nooks to explore. Our favorite was the sunroom upstairs. You feel completely embedded in a nature-lovers paradise, it's so peaceful and private. It's hard to leave, but if you do, the beach is a five-minute walk, Coast Cafe and the People's Store about ten, and Point Reyes just a fifteen-minute drive for the hike of your dreams to Alamere falls. We'd stay forever if we could. Thank you, Sha Sha!

  • You won’t believe the view, it’s hard to leave behind. The house itself is smartly designed, think of it as rustic luxury. If you have kids who are light sensitive or you are, make sure to bring some room darkening materials or a face mask as the curtains don’t block out much light. Otherwise, let the ocean waves soothe you to sleep. I would definitely stay again

    Surbhi2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • We had such good weather during our stay that we hardly left the property! We started every day watching the sunrise from the hot tub and ended the days watching the sunset from the large outdoor bath. We look forward to booking again.

    Betsy2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • My 60th birthday celebration was spectacular! My husband and grown kids and granddaughter enjoyed the beautiful serene stay at this ocean front property! The quaint downtown and beach was a convenient walk away and we enjoyed the local coast cafe and people’s grocery store! The accommodations were comfortable and views breathtaking and memorable!

    Karen2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • This place is a stunner! The views are incredible and can't be beat. No matter the time of day the ocean views are stunning and incredibly relaxing. The home itself is simple and compliments the scenery perfectly. It's very comfortable, the kitchen has all the necessities, comfy beds, great pressure in showers, responsive heat and super clean! We have twin toddlers and the place was great for them too. We can't wait to come back for some good exploration and R+R.

  • Jason’s place is lovely! It’s a giant house (14-15 people fit comfortably) just down the street from the beach and across the tennis courts in town. The kitchen is especially great and is a good spot for chefs and home cooks alike. We will be back!

    Elena2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • This is a truly wonderful place to have a relaxing weekend for a group. The house is big. It's casual and comfortable, and the kitchen and dining room make it easy to feed a crowd. The hot tub is amazing and make sure to leave time to nap in the double-wide hammock on the front porch. Jason is responsive and friendly. And you can't beat the location — 1 block from the beach.

    Shaleece2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful place to gather with friends and loved ones! Spacious, pretty, comfortable-- we come back again and again! Such a sweet spot!

    Elizabeth2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • The large size worked out well for our group (including children). We enjoyed the hot tub, and the location was very convenient for beach access and getting coffee/food. Although it's nice to be forced off the grid sometimes, the wifi was very spotty, so my main suggestion would be to improve the wifi access.

    Emma2019-12-22T00:00:00Z

  • Such a thoughtfully designed and zen little bungalow. It's truly private! I came for a quick solo getaway for about 36 hours and it was exactly what I needed. Every door you open and every corner you turn, there is a little delightful surprise waiting for you Margaux thought of literally EVERYTHING you could ever want for a mini spa retreat and had it available with the cutest little instructions thoughtfully placed. The soaking tub was my fav part - I'll definitely be back!

  • Great privacy, beautiful views, and incredible location. The best bang for your buck.

    Michael2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Margaux’s Stinson Zen Den is one of a kind. We felt like we spent a weekend in Japan, taking baths, wearing our kimonos and drinking tea overlooking the ocean. It feels hidden but is a 2 min walk to the Main Street and the town’s 3 restaurants, maybe 5 mins to the beach. We hope to be back soon!

    Alex2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Margaux’s is exactly as described and it is amazing. Absolutely gorgeous.

    Cely2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed here on a leap day weekend trip from San Francisco and really enjoyed this little oasis. The indoor/outdoor bathroom was my favorite part- awesome to use the rain shower head while looking out at the beautiful garden. Good location, unique abode, great service from Margaux!

    Alison2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • We Loved this place so much! The room is perfect. Small, but it has everything that you could possibly need. The view of the beach is amazing and they have a private walkway that gets you to the beach and restaurants in minutes! We will be coming back for sure!

They were so helpful in recommending a place for dinner and coming to re-light the pilot because I turned it off accidentally. Pippa was so nice! They even had coffee to brew and cream in the fridge. We will be back!

  • Our stay at the surf shack was awesome. Super cozy, comfy beds, plenty of heat, and that outdoor hot shower was awesome We walked our surfboards down to the beach to surf, about a 15 minute walk and pretty easy. Kitchen fully stocked, great balcony off the kitchen for eating if it's nice. The WiFi wasn't working well, but I think that's partly because of the slow connection in Bolinas, so don't depend on the Internet! My T-mobile service had 1 bar so I could only send texts, but my friend's Verizon service was working fine. A great place to stay in Bolinas!

  • We had a wonderful time in the Surf Shack! It worked very well for a snug family get-together! Thank you, Katherine

    Josie2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Our family of four rung in 2020 at the Surf Shack and thoroughly enjoyed the relaxing, convenient accommodations. We took advantage of the great location for day trips over to Point Reyes National Seashore and Muir Woods, and there's a lot more to see and do in the area. We enjoyed walking in Bolinas, watching the surfers and strolling on the beaches, in particular Duxbury Reef at low tide. Laundry equipment at the airbnb came in handy because we'd been traveling for a while before arriving in Bolinas. Thank you, Katie!

    Thomas2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent spot in Bolinas, perfect for our family of 4. Beds were really comfortable and the shower super nice. Easy to get to the beach, and it also has a great porch for lunch in the sun. We had a great time here.

    Jono2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely and cozy stay at the Elm Surf Shack. Would definitely book again!

    NOTE: Construction next door to my property is scheduled to start in October. I am happy to refund $50 per day that noise from this project affects your stay but want all potential guests to be aware of this issue prior to booking. Relaxing refuge set on a lush hillside in the quiet seaside town of Stinson Beach. Feel transported by the authentic Japanese design aesthetic and tranquil outdoor shower and soaking tub. Indulge in treetop ocean views from the comfort of a queen bed, and watch the sun set from the privacy of a wooden deck. Walk only five minutes to three miles of perfect beach.
    It's worth the journey down through the trees on uneven stone stairs and very steep wooden stairs to find yourself transported away from it all. A comfortable queen bed with plenty of pillows affords the perfect sitting spot to look out through the branches of the treetops at the ocean. The small kitchen area has all you need for simple cooking. You'll find extra blankets in the closet behind an antique Japanese room screen while the new handcrafted shoji screen conceals the toilet and bathroom sink. The outside shower is exhilarating (and for the adventurous in the rain and winter) while the soaking tub is beyond relaxing while looking at the ocean watching the sky change colors at sunset. Ahhhhh. Good WiFi, flashlights for night walking, aromatherapy for fully relaxing, eye masks for sleeping in!
    Stinson Beach is a quiet seaside town popular for its calm surf, smooth sand, and miles of mountain trails. The beach bungalow set on the hillside with wooden and stone stairs to arrive. Worth the trek, but if you have a bad knee, a tricky ankle or a hitch in your get-along, this is not the property for you.
  • This is truly a special place to stay. It is beautiful, private, and spa-like. Margaux provides all the best amenities, including robes and slippers! If you want to treat yourself, definitely stay here!

    Megan2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Margaux’s place was so peaceful and beautifully decorated! We arrived after dark, and it was easy to find because the path is well lit! The bungalow has a beautiful ocean view and it’s an easy short walk to the beach! We absolutely loved this place and will be coming back in the summer!

    Tatiana2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place to stay at can’t wait to experience it again.

    Kevin2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • A fabulous stay for anyone looking to get away, with or without a partner!

    Bonnie2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a lovely stay at the Bird's Nest! It was peaceful and serene, with a lovely view and a beautifully decorated interior. A really short walk to the beach as well! Loved the thoughtful details everywhere. Margaux was super easy to reach for any questions we had too. Will definitely be back!

    Amal2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • It's amazing to think that this bungalow actual has a fantastic ocean view that isn't continually called out as the top feature or showcased much in the images, but it made sense when we arrived. This was easily the best Airbnb we've stayed it. The space is thoughtfully laid out in what feels like a modern and comfortable tree house, has everything needed for cooking, hanging out, working etc., is a quiet and private location that you have completely to yourself. The deck, outdoor shower and tub are all excellent. There is something pretty magical about waking up at this location in the morning. As travelers from SF, you felt as if you were miles away from anything that may have been stressing you out. It's a short walk to the beach and and even shorter walk to the town, and Margaux was an exceptional host. I couldn't recommend this place enough. We will be back.

    Matt2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Still my favorite Airbnb stay, ever! We plan to make a tradition of returning to this place as often as we can.

    Catherine2020-01-12T00:00:00Z

    Matt2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Outstanding location, sleeping arrangement wAs very unique and cool!

    Taylor2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • If you have any hesitation, DON’T!! Book this place now and I promise you won’t regret it. The property is beautiful with a lovely garden and plenty of outdoor seating. The accommodations were amazing. I too was a little hesitant booking with a separate kitchen/bathroom and bedroom but let me tell you, this place is the absolute best. The buildings are just feet from each other and you’re safe and secure in a fenced in yard. I will be back for sure!! The kitchen/bathroom/living room is lovely, just what you need for a beach getaway, including a little heater (I stayed in March.) The bedroom is fantastic, the best part is that because it’s a canvas room you can hear the ocean at night. The bed is big and comfortable with a chair and dresser, it’s roomy and the heated blanket was perfect during the cold nights. You are literal steps from the beach, I had breakfast by the ocean every morning and about a 15/20 minute drive from everything to do in Point Reyes. I can’t begin to tell you how lovely it is here. And don’t forget the awesome hot tub, perfect after a day of riding horses or kayaking. Thank you to Colby for such a wonderful stay!!

    Jessica2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • We loved it. So close to the beach. So private and quite. Walking on the beach early morning was amazing. We just relaxed. We loved it!

    Michael2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, steps away from the beach and a few blocks from restaurants. The space was much bigger than I expected. Although there were some complications with the oven and hot tub not working, we still enjoyed our stay overall. Would highly recommend!

    Hong2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic stay! Yards from the beach, two blocks from town. This was exactly what we needed for our mini-staycation. The tent was better than expected. We used the space heater, but did not utilize the electric blankets and we were not cold at all. It felt like we we had the entire property to ourselves even though the owner was there. Highly recommended.

    A 10 minute walk to the beach and beautiful ocean views. The most romantic cottage in Bolinas with fireplace and private redwood hot tub, outdoor shower with hot and cold water running to it and old fashioned wood-burning fireplace insert :)
    I love grabbing my cup of tea in the morning and heading up to the top of the hill behind the house to the upper deck where I sit and watch the surf roll in while the morning fog rolls out. At night, watching the moon rise over the lights of San Francisco on a clear night is quite a sight. I also love sitting in the hot tub while sipping wine and gazing at the millions of stars and the milky way--absolutely incredible. After enjoying the hot tub on a cold night, coming indoors to a roaring, crackling fire is such a treat. I hope you will not only enjoy these things, but create your own amazing memories during your stay.
    We chose Bolinas because it as private as a beach town in California could be. With only 750 homes total, off-season you often have the beach completely to yourself (and a few diehard surfers of course). Bolinas is one of California's best kept secrets and like no other place in the world. There is one restaurant called "The Coast Cafe", one bar called "Smileys" and two grocery stores. For produce, I suggest the Co-op located behind the community center & for meat, The Bolinas General Store has Niman Ranch beef.
  • This was our first time staying at Chucks place and we LOVED it. We will definitely be back!

    Katherine2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Had a wonderful stay here! Such a special place in a special part of the Northern California coast. We will definitely be back to enjoy the views from the top deck and the hot tub. Thanks Chuck!

    Shannon2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Chuck's cottage is quaint and charming in a great location that's just a 5 minute walk to the beach, with a wonderfully unique redwood hot tub that was amazing to soak in both early morning watching the sun rise and late night under the clear starry sky. The bed was small but comfy, and the space heaters + fireplace warmed the place right up! Was only a short drive to Alamere Falls trailhead and overall a great option to go off the grid for the weekend.

    Daryn2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing cottage in a great location. Best hottub ever!!

    Kirsten2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Terrific place to stay. Highly recommend it for a getaway to Bolinas.

    Joe2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Chuck’s cabin was the perfect place for my husband’s weekend getaway. It’s so quaint and charming and cozy. We LOVED using the fireplace, the view of the ocean from the upper deck was absolutely breathtaking, and we lovedddd using the hot tub outside!!

    Annie2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • This is a nice, cozy cottage. There's a great place to sit out and watch the ocean, and the hot tub is a nice touch. It's small, with a single restroom, so smaller groups will be better. It has a lot of furniture for such a small space. The deck is nice.

    Jeremy2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • Adorable, cozy cottage. The upper deck was a perfect spot to relax and enjoy the ocean with school of coffee or glass of wine

    B&B nestled in the tiny seaside village of Bolinas, CA. Centrally located near markets, cafes, and a short walk to the beach. Surfing, kayaking, hiking, lounging, and relaxing! Wine Bar Bistro downstairs: The hours are: Thursday, Friday & Saturday 5pm - 9pm We will be serving pizza a salad & wine Please note: breakfast is not included at this time.
    Our B&B is SELF CHECK - IN. 11 Wharf Road Bolinas, CA 94924 Please use the walkway to the right of the building. Both bedrooms have private access and bathrooms with claw foot tubs, no showers. We would like to inform you that this is an old farm house and has always operated as a restaurant downstairs with the B&B above but if you are early to bed on our open days this is something to consider. You will however be able to get an amazing dinner and enjoy a beautiful space right downstairs from your room!
    11 wharf (URL HIDDEN)
  • Don’t come for the WiFi, do t come for an all inclusive luxury stay. Come because Bolinas is Northern California’s best kept secret. We arrived early because we remembered that street parking can be challenging and we’re lucky enough to secure a spot right in front of the Air bnb. We took a picnic to the beach for a few hours, made sandcastles and watched surfers do that zen thing. By the time check in came around we easily let ourselves in and took a nap. Drove to Due West for happy hour oysters but then came back and dined at Eleven where we had every single item on the menu. Had a cozy bath and sleep and headed back home on a cloud. Love how clean and easy this experience was.

    Adrienne2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay here was excellent! Great location and the restaurant downstairs is excellent!

    Alex2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Great location! Had a delicious dinner downstairs before settling in the BnB. Nice private entrance and quaint decor. The space was larger than expected, and the bed was very comfy. It wasn't much an issue for us, however we we're able to hear the restaurant downstairs after closing time(Possibly cleaning up and prepping for the next day). The window shades do not block any light, so if you're sensitive to light in the morning, expect to rise and shine with the sunrise!

    Mario2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Cozy little spot in one of my favorite beach towns. Great location if you want to avoid a hectic drive back to the Bay Area after a long day or to catch some uncrowded sunrise surf! Would definitely stay again.

    Chad2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • This place is really cute and stylish! Make sure to take a long bath and then head downstairs for a delicious dinner.

    John2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Clean, Convenient and Comfortable. It's in an old building over a restaurant and wine bar, so full of character but a little noisy compared to a hotel room, but that's part of the charm as far as we are concerned.

    Vince2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • A stylish space above a restaurant in Bolinas, right downtown across from the community center. My wife and our two friends rented both rooms for NYE. It was a perfect a simple space with easy access to everything downtown Bolinas has to offer. It felt very private and exclusive. Thank you to Rebecca and Kate!

    Alex2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • It was a perfect cozy place in the middle of Bolinas for my short solo travel. Simple, clean and comfortable. The cat claw tub was so awesome with good hot water to warm up!

    Stroll in minutes to the edge of the continent-the Pacific Ocean in all its glory. Sweet Haven is a light, airy, cozy place, with parks and beaches in every direction. Fully equipped kitchen (with decent knives!), full sized fridge, excellent wood stove (or push-button heater) for cool evenings, good lighting and comfortable places to sit and read. Your shower is a step outdoors under a clear roof. Bathroom is shared-just a few steps out the other door. The garden is full of flowers.
    Down a quiet dirt road, through the wagon-wheel gate and the cheery blue door, Sweet Haven remakes a very large garage/workshop into a simple, calm garden home. The lofty L shaped kitchen-sitting room has windows to the garden on three sides. The inner room is a peaceful, newly created bedroom with a brass double bed and down comforter. The garden is yours to sit in and pick from and there might be tomatoes in the greenhouse (a nice place to sit on foggy days). There is a friendly dog on site, and another who will visit from next door. It is a pleasant walk downtown for groceries, a coffee or a picnic on the beach. Excellent hiking all around. We have internet, but are TV-free so you can unplug and sink in.
    Quiet dirt roads, large fields, the ocean. National Parks, organic farms, blackberries along the road and a farm stand with everything local. An hour to the City when it is time for music, museums or just some hustle and bustle. Town offers tasty groceries, library, several restaurants and shops.
  • An ideal place to stay for the outdoor enthusiast looking to experience all Marin has to offer. A quick drive from the trails and the beach it’s a ideal base for surfing, hiking, and running. I highly recommend staying there.

    Russell2019-08-21T00:00:00Z

  • great place just a few steps from the beach and very close to town. this super cute little house is well-equipped and just as pictured. the place is very clean by any standard but as a pet-friendly house this was especially nice. we really appreciated being able to bring our cats (though they didn’t appreciate the windy drive) but we all really enjoyed the sunny yard! the host is very attentive and responsive and we would definitely stay here again.

    Calif. wildflowers & quail surround this carefully designed 400 sq.ft. studio cottage with tiled, well-stocked kitchen, one queen bed, CA.bay flooring, large bathroom, clawfoot tub with shower, private parking and garden, 1/3 mile from Agate Beach, set in 1.5 acre native plant garden.
    Enjoy the north-central coast of California at the Quail House in Bolinas, an aesthetically pleasing, immaculately clean, and comfortable retreat for singles, couples, or couples with a child under 5 or 6. There is much attention to detail throughout this private, separate building with its own parking place and entrance to the property. Located within a famous one and a half acre demonstration garden of coastal native plants, in the incomparable "hippie-chic" (as one visitor called it) town of Bolinas, one hour but a world away from San Francisco. Here at the southern end of the Pt Reyes National Seashore, 150 miles of hiking trails await you. The cottage is an entirely self-contained 400 sq. ft (20'x20') unit that includes a full kitchen and spacious bathroom, with its own parking space, visited only by you and the quail. In the surrounding garden, we grow some of the many threatened native California wildflowers, for seed-collection and for the seasonal enjoyment of our guests and us. The cottage is one large room, with a completely equipped new kitchen area, including apartment sized refrigerator, butcher block and tiled counters, and a new gas stove. The style is "California bungalow." Guests often remark on the furniture. The sound of the ocean, 1/3 of a mile away, will rock you to sleep. Please note that we have a three-night minimum Friday thru Sunday. Please discuss with us if you wish to bring a child with you, so we can ensure time to "baby proof" the cottage. You will enjoy a new and comfortable queen size bed with organic sheets and down comforters, a reclining 2-person loveseat, and a spacious bathroom with a clawfoot bathtub and on-demand unlimited hot water for long, luxurious baths or showers after hiking. Fine bath products are available for your use. We provide Peets or other high quality caffeinated coffee, and a wide selection of teas. We stock staples like olive oil and Balsamic and other vinegars and seasonings, and fine dutch cocoa for hot chocolate.When available, we share fresh eggs from our neighbor's backyard hens. Books on the area are supplied, including three books written by your host, partly about the development of this garden, and published by University of California Press. Organic, local, salvaged, and re-purposed materials were used whenever possible in the construction of the cottage. The floor and shelving is made of locally-milled California bay laurel. Tile from the Sausalito Heath Tile Factory ornaments the kitchen, with a built-in butcher block counter. The high ceiling and many windows add to the pleasantness of the dappled sunlight changing throughout the day. A large coast live oak surrounds the cottage, providing roosting spaces for our local quail covey and a scenic backdrop for the cottage. Coffeeberry, coyote bush, redwoods, and many native wildflowers and bunchgrasses, surround the cottage. The garden has been designed with the needs of California quail in mind, and their sweet and varied calls can be heard throughout the day. This is why no pets are allowed. Sorry, no exceptions. The Quail House is perfect for writers, with a spacious wooden dining table to spread out at, and a small private desk area as well. Your neighbors are an eclectic assortment of local fishermen, surfboard shapers, woodworkers, one publisher, and several ceramicists. Your host is the proprietor of Larner Seeds, dedicated specialists in California native plants, so plant and bird lovers will find a lot to learn and enjoy on-site as well as in the vicinity. Nearby Agate Beach is a 1/3 mile walk away, and includes Duxbury Point, a famous Marine Sanctuary for tidepooling and beach walking. It's a rocky beach, so if you prefer a sand beach, go downtown to Brighton Beach, or make the trek to Stinson Beach, 15 minutes south on Hwy One. This town is a unique enclave of dedicated artists, writers, naturalists, and rugged individualists. If you choose, you can be busy all the time, with the many local events taking place in our lively community. The Hearsay News, available downtown at both grocery stores, lists all events. A minimum stay of 3 nights is required, with a cleaning fee of $75.00 and a security deposit of $500.00. A required Transient Occupancy Tax of 10%, added to the nightly price of $190.00, is collected by Airbnb to help pay for the fact that over 50% of Marin County, the unincorporated West Marin, is parks and open space for your enjoyment. Cancellations require one week in advance. Singles, couples, and families with one child under 5 can be accommodated. Public transportation is provided by West Marin Stagecoach. Downtown Bolinas is one of the sweetest downtowns in the world (in our opinion). Though we have only (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) people in Bolinas, downtown you will find a restaurant, two markets, the library, the post office, several shops, a saloon, a sandy beach, a second-hand store, and an excellent regional museum. A downtown like this is a real center for the community, Explore! Check out the events and classes at the Bolinas Community Center as well. Here are many interesting cultural events, and some of our visitors have thrown themselves with gusto into local events and classes. One couple planned their visit around a talk at the New School at Commonweal. You can go to their website and register. These talks are usually free. They've had most recently Michael Pollan. The local saloon, Smiley's, is the oldest continuously operating saloon in California, providing a continuous array of a wide variety of musicians, both local and not. There are two markets in town, one, The Bolnas Peoples Store, a natural foods store and the other, The Bolinas Market, providing local meats, seafood, and poultry. We also have a great restaurant offering local produce and seafood, the Coast Cafe, as well as Eleven, which has a small, delicious, ever changing menu. We suggest reservations on weekends. The brunch at the Coast Cafe is highly recommended. Indoor and outdoor seating. The Bolinas Museum has top-quality exhibits and a fascinating and informative History Room. Musical events and exhibit openings often take place in its courtyard. On Fridays, Star Route Farms, the oldest organic farm in the state, sells directly to the public as well. We also have a unique used bookstore, Michael's, where you can stock up on used books for $1.to $2 apiece! It is next to the Post Office on Brighton Road. Our local surf shop around the corner provides lessons and surfing supplies. Located at the southern end of the Pt Reyes National Seashore, we have access to 150 miles of trails. Nearby is the Pt Reyes Bird Observatory, a must-see, as well as Commonweal, a well-known retreat center sponsoring an impressive array of NGOs and with a lecture series packed with interesting speakers. View (EMAIL HIDDEN) A favorite trail begins at Palomarin parking lot at the end of Mesa Road, with access to Bass Lake, a favored summer swimming spot, Alamere Falls, and Pelican Lake. For the intrepid hiker looking for a challenge, these trails can be taken all the way into the northern part of Pt Reyes National Seashore. There are hikes of all lengths and difficulty. We are glad to advise you. Only an hour's drive from San Francisco, we are surrounded by national and state parks and county open space. Mt. Tamalpais State Park, with its gorgeous views, the summer Mountain Play, and an astounding number of different ecosystems, is accessed just across Hwy One on the Bolinas-Fairfax Road and includes redwoods, serpentine, grasslands, and chaparral, with numerous beautiful trails available. Hikers will never run out of hikes around here, and surfers will be happy as well. We are 10 minutes north of Stinson Beach and about half an hour from the renowned Muir Woods, where mighty redwoods can be viewed, a good stop along the way, with a great cafe and bookstore as well. We love our area and enjoy sharing it. We can advise on hikes and restaurants or leave you to your own adventures.
    Our neighborhood is quiet, friendly, full of interesting people. A fine ceramicist specializing in porcelain lives across the street and is glad to show her work. Two fishermen live on the block as well as a famous surfboard shaper. Across the way is a well-known artist and en plein air painter, who also has a gallery downtown.
  • Book Quail Cottage if you love: - Easy access to all of the natural beauty between Stinson and Tomales Point - A cozy, clean, and comfortable den in a quiet, out of the way setting - A throwback to the classic AirBnB experience; a home away from home complete with host touches that allow immediate access to the community your visiting. 10/10 would go back.

    Nathan2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • A magical retreat filled with amazing touches and located in quiet, natural, and secluded environs. I’ll definitely be back!

    Claudia2019-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • All the wonderful details of Quail House and the environs made our stay absolutely lovely. We enjoyed the town of Bolinas and walking the streets all around town and hiking the Palomarin trail nearby. Judith paid attention to every detail in the cottage, making us feel so well cared for. We will be back!

    Amy2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • Judith’s house is great! The accommodations are really comfortable and the house has everything you need. They were great hosts - responsive and easy to communicate with.

    Phebe2019-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • Quail cottage is set in a beautiful native garden which is very peaceful. The cottage is very tastefully furnished and Judith left fresh fruit, bagels, eggs and chocolate to welcome us. The cottage also has a good selection of books on the area and a packet filled with lots of useful information. The kitchen is well stocked with staples and we enjoyed steel cut oats and fresh coffee each morning for breakfast. In the evenings we walked into the town of Bolinas for dinner. Quail cottage is perfect for a couple seeking a quiet getaway by the coast and I have no hesitation in recommending it highly. Thank you, Judith!

    Margaret2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • Incredible in every way...

    Angela2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • The Quail House is a terrific place to spend a few days in Bolinas, about halfway between Agate Beach with its neat tidepools and Bolinas Beach with its gentle breakers. Better yet, it sits in the middle of an incredible native plant garden and nursery. You can buy some native plant seeds and one of Judith's botany or foraging books. What a treat. I stayed with my two daughters and they were so enchanted by the big garden and the opportunity to explore and build fairy houses. The kitchen is well-appointed, the bathroom is spacious and the bathtub big enough for two. The bed is very comfortable and its easy to heat the cottage as well, when nights get chilly. Quality and comfort and an authentic Bolinas experience will bring travelers closer to this very special community. We will definitely visit again soon!

    Noah2019-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • Judith is a great host. Very thoughtful with a lot of little extra touches. I had a flight delay so I didn't meet Judith directly but her communication was great. She also wrote a really nice guide to the area we were able to use as well as having multiple books available. Bolinas is super cool. My wife and I did some paddleboarding in the lagoon and the beach which is next to the lagoon and the small downtown. Bolinas is great if you're into hippies, surfing, and nature. It's a small town. You've got 2 restaurants in town with both not open every night. If you're looking for a home base in the area for exploring, it's a little remote. If you're looking for a place to surf and experience a true hippie vibe, this is the place. The cottage is a car ride to downtown and the beaches. Parking can be a little challenging. You may need to park and walk a bit to the beach or if you have a bike, it's a nice hilly ride. Judith, thanks for the stay in your wonderful cottage.

    Eclectic three story house in Bolinas with an open floor plan and serene sea views.
    Eclectic 1970s 3 story home perched above Agate Beach in Bolinas is the perfect location for families or couples seeking a quiet, relaxing getaway in a rural location. With spectacular 180 degree ocean views , a sauna w/ an ocean view, and a well equipped kitchen, you won’t need to leave. Only steps away, down a narrow path, tide pools await.

The full/queen pull out couch in the TV room can sleep up to two people. 2 full bathrooms, plus a half bath. 3 minute walk to Agate Beach, 7 minute drive to downtown Bolinas. 1/2 acre fenced garden has multiple decks with views, propane grill, large trampoline, and plenty of seating for a gathering.

  • Beautiful, quirky place with great style and really cool art!

    Maureen2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent place to get away. Really close to the tide pools. Grabbed some chai at the local store, bought some fresh lettuce at the farm stand on the way in, and ate a bunch of parkside bread. really well insulated house, didn’t turn on much heat at all in november. thanks!

    Bryan2019-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • This house was truly magical. Wondrous is the best way to say it. It is hard to capture in words how much personality the home has and its surrounding beauty. The beds were so comfortable, the bathrooms were stunning, quirky decor that actually delighted the senses. We spent time watching the sunsets from several spots. Outstanding. We will return again ... and hopefully again after that. We highly recommend. Plenty of space for several families.

    Danica2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful, luxurious, spacious and unique home. Thoughtful, well curated, comfortable. Great kitchen, deck, backyard. Lots of interesting touches and places to hang out and be social, or checkout and have a quiet moment. The location is lovely. Ocean views and the sound of waves breaking in the distance. Every morning we were visited by a mother and daughter deer who came by to eat the apples that had fallen from the apple tree. One evening a fox trotted across the back porch. We were two families; four adults and three kids. We all had a great time.

    William2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • The beautiful home was full of fun eclectic touches that made every turn a fun surprise. Tucked away in a quiet neighborhood with breathtaking views, it was a serene escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. We stayed here as a family before my wedding and it was the perfect place to spend quality time together. The amenities were wonderful as well- sauna, views, sandbox, outdoor patios, bathrooms, etc. I would highly recommend staying here.

    Erin2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • We had another wonderful stay at this property!

    Sheila2019-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • We loved this gorgeous house! The ocean views were spectacular from the very back and second floor deck, and from the whole third floor. We appreciated the fresh, local bread we were given when we picked up the keys, as well as the wine. We had guests during the day, and found so many great spaces to entertain inside and outside. The company worked with us so that we knew what was allowed. We cooked the entire time, and the kitchen was extremely well stocked. Oh, and the huge stock of kids toys was phenomenal. My entire family can’t wait to return.

  • Devin, Barb, and Pat were exceptional hosts and the Airbnb was even better in person! The hosts truly thought of everything. Even though we didn't end up needing it, there was migraine medicine, tums, and other misc travel sized bathroom items for guests! The hosts are extremely considerate. They even offered to watch our dog while we went to a wedding! The hosts are very kind individuals -- the kind of people who would be the best neighbors! The king sized bed was so comfortable and the property was beautiful with redwoods everywhere. The enclosed patio was much appreciated, it was so easy to let our dog out in the middle of the night for bathroom breaks with no worries. My partner and I had never stayed in Mill Valley before and found everything about it to be charming. Plus, it's proximity to Stinson beach was wonderful. There's a lot of fantastic hiking really close to this property. If you're considering staying here, I highly recommend going ahead and booking this spot!

    Heidi2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • a perfect spot! we needed a place close to home to stay during some house remodeling and feel so lucky to have landed at devin and barbie’s great cottage in mill valley. it is totally quiet and tucked into nature, but just a quick walk downtown and convenient to our jobs in the city. they have equipped the space with everything you could possibly need - and more - with many extra touches and tons of care in making a super comfortable space (& bed!). this is a super great launch pad to anywhere in marin, wine country and san francisco, with really kind hosts! first airbnb experience and it was perfect! we hope to stay again during future home projects!!

    Michelle2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Devin and Barb are great hosts. They welcomed us and gave us advice on where certain things were when asked. Muir Woods is really close by and there are shopping areas and restaurants that are also super close by. Would totally recommend!

    Erika2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Devin and Barbi are wonderful hosts. The space was perfect with lots of amenities and the bed was AMAZING. I haven’t slept that well in months. Downtown is just a few minutes away with lots of great restaurants. Definitely going to stay again when we are in town.

    Caden2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • The house is tucked away in the forest surrounded by redwoods. Muir Woods is within walking distance. Devin is an awesome host. I had car issues and she offered to pick me up and give me a ride (although I did not end up needing one).

    Sam2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Three adult travelers in our crew. This place is PERFECT for those who enjoy nature. If I wasn’t so tired, I would have probably heard the birds outside LOL. But it was so relaxing and peaceful at night. This place is nestled in Marin County not too far from the Hustle-n-Bustle of SF down South...Maybe 15mins away from MuirWoods. Heating, heated blankets, TV, a small kitchenette was perfect for what we had in mind—providing we really only came home to sleep and maybe kick back a few beers. The hosts were thoughtful, pleasant, and super friendly with 100% rapid response rates to any of our questions. They even accommodated our early, unexpected check-in since we traveled from SD County. 10/10 would recommend this place. My only regret was not hanging out in Mill Valley a little longer. EVERYONE IS SO KIND!

  • Fantastic bungalow with a great location. Great back yard, easy spot!

    Aaron2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Amber's place in Bolinas is great! I have now had two different family members stay there while in town visiting me, and the accommodations could not have been better. Clean big kitchen and living area, and a nice big comfy (according to my family) bed. Will definitely be renting this place again!

    Danielle2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Comfy with a remarkably well-equipped kitchen! The bed in the bedroom is very comfortable, and the sofa bed in the living room is fine but a bit noisy. Very quiet location, and Amber is helpful but unobtrusive. Nice to have a clothes washer and drier (with detergent) available. A great value in an expensive location.

    Sharon2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • My parents time at the Abalone was perfect! Clean and cozy space in a great location. Amber was the perfect host!

    Laurie2019-11-25T00:00:00Z

    Andrew2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderfully peaceful time at Amber's place. It was very quiet and we slept well. The kitchen was very complete with everything we could need to cook with. The master bedroom, closet, and bathroom were all very large. The pullout sofa was comfortable (but really noisy to move on). There is a nice walk down to look at the ocean and we saw a beautiful, full, moon shining on the water, and on the other side, a beautiful sunset. I would definitely recommend Amber's place.

    Nancy2019-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • This place is perfect for anyone coming to spend some time hiking the surrounding areas. The place is very clean and all of the amenities are nice. It is also very close to a wonderful view of the ocean. Amber is very responsive and helpful! I would definitely recommend this rental!

    Looking for a quiet retreat? In a little more than an hour's drive from San Francisco, you have arrived at this home nestled in nature where you can truly get away and relax. Bolinas and its beach are just a five- to ten-minute walk away.
    This is an ideal spot for one or two people. A place to completely unwind. A retreat in nature surrounded by the sounds of birds and the ocean. A great place to read a book! Please note: two-adult maximum occupancy—we are unable to accommodate any more than two. Not suitable for children. No pets. No smoking anywhere on the property, inside or out. Due to the area-wide, high-fire danger: no fires of any kind; no grilling. Bring your slippers or other cozy foot coverings—we are a shoes-free home.
    Bolinas is a community made up of all sorts of people: artists; surfers; writers; crafts people; farmers and more; many of whom are long-time residents. Bolinas provides a different pace whether for those who are visiting or for those who make Bolinas their year-round home. It is a place where one can get away from it all. The town has a store that stocks sundry items as well as offering a meat and fish counter where sandwiches can be procured as well. Additionally, there is a health food store located directly behind the public library. There, too, one can find fruits and vegetables along with a range of other products. There are two restaurants in town: Coast Café, serving lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch. Open Tuesdays through Sundays. They also run a coffee kiosk open throughout the day. Eleven Wine Bar Bistro, serving lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch. Dinner reservations are recommended. Open Thursdays through Sundays. Smiley's Saloon is located directly across the street from the general store on Wharf Road. There are a couple of surf shops that rent out wet suits and surfboards as well. Point Reyes Station, Olema, Inverness and other points north are a short drive, depending on traffic. The community of Stinson Beach, to the South, is about a 15-minute drive away. There you will find restaurants and surf shops, among other things. The Bolinas Museum has a wonderful archival room that covers the history of Bolinas and neighboring communities. There are exhibits in the main rooms of the museum; these warrant a visit. Museum hours are: Friday, 1:00 - 5:00 PM; Saturday, noon - 5:00 PM; Sunday, noon - 5:00 PM. Bolinas is a great community from which to make forays farther afield. Ultimately, the best thing about the Bolinas area is the surrounding nature. What a way to relax and unwind. Please refer to the house manual for more details.
  • Great place, great location, great hosts. What more could you ask for. The house has everything you need. We enjoyed a peaceful and relaxing 2 nights. We hiked, spent time at the beach and enjoyed the town of Bolinas.

    Darlene2019-09-03T00:00:00Z

    Jeff2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • I was looking for a peaceful, sweet, relaxed place to stay for a weekend of quiet relaxation. I enjoyed David’s home, walking into town and along the beach, and the Bolinas community. David was a kind and responsive host. I look forward to staying here again.

    Jennifer2019-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful Stay! Everything was incredibly clean, and the flowers were such a nice surprise. It was really fun to stay in such a small and interesting town. It was a great experience!

    David2019-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • This is a gorgeous one bedroom with a large living room and kitchen that’s very quiet and cozy, nestled in the woods. It’s easy to walk to the town, beaches, and drive to nearby hiking trails. The space was immaculate, perfectly appointed, with fresh cut flowers that my wife and I appreciated to celebrate our anniversary. The bathroom is also gorgeous, recently renovated with a river rock floor.

    Scott2019-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • Davis’s Place was perfect in every way! Very clean, nicely furnished, great Kitchen, beautiful grounds, comfy bed and couch, nice touches like vases of flowers in several rooms. Good communication and easy check in. I highly recommend staying here. Thank you David!

    Desiree2019-07-05T00:00:00Z
  • We love getting away from the city for a long weekend, and this spot in Bolinas was perfect. Walking distance to town and the beach, yet nestled in the woods with privacy and quiet solitude. The kitchen had all the essentials, the entire home was incredibly clean, and the skylight shower was wonderful after a day out on the water. David was extremely responsive and communicative. Definitely one of my best Airbnb experiences to date.

    Unique setting next to the San Geronimo Valley Creek. Across a footbridge and next to our happy chickens you will find your cozy little Nook. Situated close to Pt Reyes National Park and other spectacular hiking and biking trails.
    This is a studio in a private hideout in Lagunitas, next to the main house. The property is situated in a gorgeous valley full of redwood trees, flora and fauna. It is separated from the main road by a small creek, with a walking bridge connecting the home to the carport though a password protected gate. Trees, flowers, and ferns populate the yard, bringing in little birds, dragonflies, and frogs. We recently built a pond with lots of fish. Hopefully very soon we'll have some turtles in there as well. The studio has a queen size bed, 2 lounge chairs, a TV, and plenty of closet space. It's equipped with a small kitchenette with a small refrigerator, convection oven, sink, and 2 burners. The bathroom has a fully functional shower. At night you can see the stars from the comfort of the bed through the skylights. Stepping outside the studio, you'll see a lounge area with comfortable blue chairs, and the chicken coop with our hens (all named after famous female singers. We'll introduce you, if you'd like!). Beyond the fire pit is the creek. We have a little island where you can climb down and observe the salmon swim upstream, and the crawdads fight one another for their ladies honor. We are located within a 5 minute drive to Spirit Rock, 30 minutes to Stinson Beach, and about 45 minutes to San Francisco. There are lots of places to go hiking and swimming around here, and it's a great area for biking. As far as media entertainment options, the studio does have a TV with premium cable, and we offer free wifi.
  • My husband and I stayed here for a week long vacation from MN. We loved being so close to the city but when you get back to Linda's place you suddenly feel the peaceful and rustic energy. Also loved how close we were to so much nature. 10/10!

  • Really magical to walk across the bridge. Great heating and very nice to arrive with the place pre-warmed. The bed was wonderful, the kitchen had everything we needed, and the shower was simple and instantly the right temperature. Very private and secure. Thank you.

  • Excellent nook / getaway spot from the city within driving distance of Point Reyes Station. We were looking for a weekend with access to point reyes hiking and this spot delivered. From tomales point to the lighthouse and drakes beach, this Airbnb is the perfect setting to reach all those spots over a weekend. The room is a cute, comfy and relaxing hideout for a weekend.

  • This cosy cabin was as described and a quiet spot to use as a base for visits to new and old haunts in the area. We enjoyed seeing Point Reyes Station and Bolinas again. A walk around the East Peak of Mount Tam was stunning and Sol Food in San Rafael was great for lunch.

  • This is a sweet, sweet spot-- a delightful, cozy, clean and comfortable, brilliantly designed little cabin in a beautiful garden alongside a rushing creek, two minutes walk from excellent food (breakfast and lunch at the Lagunitas grocery, dinner at Arti Indian restaurant), ten minutes up the road from the redwoods of Samuel P. Taylor Park and twenty-five from Point Reyes National Seashore and its spectacular landscapes-- not to mention elephant seals and elk. Linda was the perfect host, check-in and check-out were as easy as could be, her tips for local activities and such were all useful... really, my only complaint is that we won't be able to get back there soon enough-- my wife and I just loved every minute. Thanks again and again, Linda! Adios for now.

  • Linda's place is a hidden treasure. If you're looking for something cozy in a really special area, look no further. The Indian restaurant, a short walk from Linda's, was incredible. Before heading to hike to the Pioneer Tree at Samuel P. Taylor State Park, we stopped at the deli for delicious sandwiches. We were lucky that the Museum of Tea was open, as its only open from 10-2 on Saturdays. David was great and gave us a free tea tasting. We had Sol Food for dinner. There was a line but the huge plate of flavorful Peruvian food was worth it. On Sunday we did Pt. Reyes National Seashore to see the elephant seals. Huge and hilarious creatures. If you want to visit the Lighthouse, park at Drakes Beach to get a bus ticket. If you're visiting in January, know that the land is wet and it is cold but still magical. All in all, this stay was lovely. Quaint with hidden gems at every turn. Highly recommend.

  • Excellent cozy space!

  • Linda’s place is so picturesque with the stream and bridge. She has lights on the bridge for you when you come home after dinner. The place has all you need with a comfortable bed, some chairs and a small kitchen area where you can have some coffee or tea and do some light cooking. She has quite the tea selection for you to enjoy.

  • Great place! Location was awesome!

  • We loved the character of Jennifer’s place. It was the perfect spot for a weekend getaway that had the best of both worlds - small town charm & big city access. Jennifer was wonderful about respecting our privacy but let us know she was there as a resource. We loved our stay!

    Brooks2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Cute space in a beautiful area! Jenny was very flexible and accommodating to my schedule.

    Christine2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Really nice place, even more charming in person than in the photos, especially the bedroom area. Perfect place to stay while we were hiking in the area. At first we were a little worried we wouldn't be able to do much cooking in the kitchen, but everything worked out great. We ate out a little, cooked a little, and then picked up some prepared foods at Good Earth Natural Foods in town (a madhouse, but worth it!). We even got a view of the fireworks from the porch on New Years Eve. Jennifer was very helpful and we met her briefly on the way out! Highly recommend.

  • such a cute place! quiet and beautiful area! will definitely be staying here again when in town!
