2 & 4 Marine Way—The Whole Shebang is one large property with two deluxe cottages. Brand new hot tub installed July 2020! With a full renovation in 2019, the cottages are styled and ready for good times. This rental is perfect for a few families or a group. The location can't be beat - park your car when you arrive and you won't need it till you leave. A 2 minute stroll to the sand. Sleep to the sound of the waves! Please note: One week minimum in summer, three night minimum most weekends.

The space
This listing is for two cottages on one property. You will have the whole place to yourself! There are five bedrooms spread throughout one two floor cottage with three bedrooms, and another two bedroom cottage all on one level. Two kitchens, four full bathrooms, five separate garden areas with outdoor dining, firepits, outdoor showers, and more. The layout is perfect for multiple families or for a large family getaway. Lots of private nooks to tuck away and also large gathering spaces inside and out for a big group.

And -- the LOCATION! It's truly the best. Right in the village, one house from the beach, a short stroll to the trails of Mt Tam. Great for all ages.

Below you will find details on each of the two cottages included in this rental:

THE STEEP RAVINE (three bedrooms, sleeps 6-7)
From the charming front garden, you'll enter into a large living room with an absurdly comfortable and large sectional couch and large screen smart TV. Off the living room are a brand new kitchen with stone counters and a dishwasher and disposal. Also off the living room is a charming dining room and full bath with shower. Heated tile floors in all the bathrooms! Upstairs there is another full bathroom with a bathtub and shower and three bedrooms. Bedroom 1 is the master, with a king bed and a gorgeous ocean view. Bedrooms 2 and 3 each have two twins that can be attached to make a king. Please note that the third bedroom (two twins or king) is only accessed through the second bedroom (two twins or king), so keep that in mind for privacy concerns. In bedroom 2, there is a little built in sleeping nook, perfect for a not-too-tall child.

Upstairs, there is a wrap-around deck, designed for ocean and mountain viewing over coffee, wine, or cocoa.

THE DOUBLE DIPSEA (two bedrooms, sleeps 5-6)
When you step Inside the Double Dipsea, you'll enter into a great room with a very comfortable and large sectional couch and large dining table. A set of vintage lockers holds beach towels, beach blankets, and extra supplies. Off the living room is a brand new kitchen with stone counters and a dishwasher. At the other end of the great room is the bedroom with a queen bed (organic latex mattress and down bedding) and a small full bathroom with heated floors. Through the kitchen you'll find a large private, fenced in garden with fruit trees for sun lounging and star gazing. There's a brand new hot tub, outdoor shower, and another fire pit in the garden. The second bedroom is very private and quiet with its own garden with chaise lounges and another outdoor shower. This room has a smart tv, clawfoot tub, and an extra day bed that sleeps one. For extra sleep spots, we've got a thick and comfortable full sized memory foam mattress, plus a very comfortable sofa spot or two. This cottage is best for either six adults, or four adults and three children. More than six adults would be tight. There is a washer and dryer in this unit as well.

Throughout the Whole Shebang, we have all that you need -- beach towels, beach chairs, beach blankets, boogie boards, an outdoor shower, all down bedding, beach towels, organic mattresses, fully equipped kitchen, cozy blankets, coffee, kitchen basics, fancy lotion.

There are four parking spots included with this rental.

Where you’ll be

Stinson Beach, California, United States

The town of Stinson Beach is a truly magical place. Nestled between a long arc of sandy beach to the west and glorious Mt Tam to the east, Stinson is one of the most soul-lifting, smile-making spots on earth.

The town is tiny but somehow has everything you need! Several fantastic restaurants are steps away, including the Parkside Bakery, Cafe, Snackbar, and Restaurant. Roll out of bed to a latte and fresh pastry. A little market is just a block away where you'll find a good selection of groceries, wine, beer, and other basic sundries. A book store, library, surf shop, and a few more restaurants round out the village. On the beach, just a few minutes stroll away is the Siren restaurant - the best fish tacos in town. The kitchen is lovely and ready for you to cook, but also know that you can get any meal you need with very little effort. You won't need to use your car at all.

While time at the glorious beach can occupy your whole visit, just know that the trails of Mt Tam are just steps away! The hiking is fantastic, as it doesn't take long to climb up to some extraordinary views. The Steep Ravine Cottage is named after the trail of the same name. The Dipsea and Matt Davis trails are equally superb.

We are a family of four and we live just over the mountain from Stinson Beach. For decades now Stinson has been our #1 place to play. Like our absolute favorite place to go in any season. Our souls are happy out there. We've dreamed for years of buying a place in Stinson, but honestly never thought it would be in the cards given the real estate market. In June 2019, the stars aligned and we were able to buy the Cottages at Stinson Beach, which was then set up as a set of long term rentals. It was truly a dream come true, like in a pinching ourselves, mouths wide open kind of way. We've spent the last half-year fixing and replacing nearly every system on the property, a labor of head-over-heels-love. 1,000 decisions -- big, small, and everything in between. We designed the Cottages with an eye towards all the things we love to do in Stinson -- sit with family and friends around a sofa, table, or fire pit; cook great meals together in really lovely kitchens; take long lingering baths while gazing at the stars; and of course, immerse in all of the magic that is Stinson Beach. It's an extraordinary spot that makes us all breath easy and smile more.
