Guesthouse in Stinson Beach
Beach View at the Bird’s Nest Bungalow
Relaxing refuge set on a lush hillside in the quiet seaside town of Stinson Beach. Feel transported by the Asian inspired design 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! I like to give my guests total privacy, but I’m always available if needed. ( text is easiest) 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. A car is recommended for day trips to Muir Woods, the Point Reyes National Seashore, Mt Tamalpais, a ferry ride to San Francisco and shopping in Sausalito. The Marin Airporter will get you from SFO to Mill Valley and then you can hop on the Stage Coach to town. (See Marin Transit Website). The Stage will take you in and around Marin County. However the best way to get around our small beach town is to park the car and walk. Our tiny town has three restaurants, one with fresh baked bread and take out, a library, bookstore , surf shop, kayak and surf rental shop, photography gallery, upcycled denim and hand dyed clothing shop, art galleries, jewelry, flower shop, and more. The Stinson Beach Market has all you'll need for a weekend getaway. You'll want to take a long or short hike on the beautifully maintained hiking trails of the Matt Davis or Steep Ravine and stroll the three miles of perfect sand of one of the best beaches in Northern California. You can surf, boogie board, paddle board, kite sail, or just plain put your feet in the water and marvel at the wonder of the ocean. Whether it's mountain or sea it's all about nature here in our coastal town. Guests must be realistic about climbing stairs. If you have a trick knee, an ankle that aches, or a hitch in your get-along, this is not the place you'll want to be.
