About listing

Beautiful setting with rustic elegance: a newly remodeled two-bedroom guesthouse. Master includes king size and twin bed, en suite bathroom with shower. Guest room includes queen bed, private bath with tub. State of the art kitchen with all amenities, Viking gas stove, cutlery and crockery, pantry, laundry, modern appliances with toaster oven and microwave, Nespresso, French press and drip coffee makers, separate teapot. Large open living/dining room with full sea views, wood-burning fireplace, Sonos sound system, flat screen TV, internet (not always high speed). The views are of the pacific, the Bolinas lagoon and Mountain ridge, Stinson Beach along the coast to San Francisco. Inner courtyard with comfortable outdoor furniture allows for relaxing or reading--all to the sound of waves crashing on the beach below. This is one of the most beautifully situated ocean bluff properties in Bolinas----a town rich in character and history within walking distance of everything you need. You can watch the sunrise from the house or sit out on "the perch" to watch the surfers and seals below, or the ships in the distance on their way to and from San Francisco. Hawks, egrets, and blue herons are common sights as are deer and fox. Beachcombers walk the beaches below. Thousands of acres of protected open space surround Bolinas. The garden surrounding the house includes a badminton court, flowers, fruit trees and a trampoline with places to walk and sit. The beach and town are a short walk and a 24-hour organic produce stand is a long walk or short drive from the house, operating on the honor system. This unique village with its small population, museum, library, crafts, fishing boats, fresh catch, and surfing, is a little bit of a bohemian paradise within an hour of San Francisco. Accessible via highway 1, with Point Reyes to the north, and Stinson Beach to the south, perfectly situated for a relaxing, unique holiday removed from the action of city life.

    Spectacular, panoramic view of the Pacific from a spacious and beautifully designed and appointed guest house. The property is tasteful in every way, meticulously maintained, and equipped with virtually any accoutrement one would want for a leisurely stay and entertaining. The house has numerous full height windows and skylights admitting natural light but is also exceptionally private. The grounds are also beautifully maintained and afford several different out door seating areas with commanding ocean views. The view from both the interior and exterior is riveting all the time. The center of Bolinas with a nice restaurant and shops was at most a 10 minute walk from the house, and hikes, paddleboarding, beaches, restaurants and the other amenities of Stinson Beach due south and Tomales Bay/Point Reyes to the north are all a short and scenic drive away. Nancy was a gracious host who emailed us to see if all was ok shortly after we arrived. As may be obvious from our observations above, it was surely a lot more than 'ok.' We have traveled a fair amount and this guest house was among the nicest accommodations we have had. We would recommend it highly to anyone. 04 October 2015 - 21:27:00

    I almost hate to write the stellar review this rental deserves, as you do not want others to discover it and this house not be available when you want to come back ! I will not be greedy though. I can say without a doubt, this is one fantastic place to stay if you love the ocean and unbelievable views. We saw seals, whales and dolphins frolicking right in front of the house. The house is such a well appointed gem with every convenience one would need - supplied by your gracious hosts. The ability to walk to the beach and into town and then back to this lovely house is such a delight. Bolinas has some of the friendliest people I have met in California - all the shop owners are so wonderful and kind. The surrounding Point Reyes region is abundant with hiking, biking, horseback riding opportunities. The beaches are perfect for surfing, paddle boarding, fishing and beachcombing. Thank you for another memorable stay at your lovely home! 02 June 2016 - 02:36:05

    This was our second stay and it was as lovely as I'd remembered. The house is thoughtfully equipped and beautifully furnished. Sid and Nancy have created a comfortable home with all the amenities any visitor could want. The setting is spectacular, a view I can't imagine ever tiring of. Being here is a complete delight! We look forward to our next visit and have hopes to return every summer. 19 August 2016 - 07:37:00

    We just returned home from our 3rd stay at this property. The worst thing I can say about the place is that going home is undeniably difficult each visit. The view, in whatever weather, is spectacular. We hesitate to give this house a glowing review for fear it will be booked when we want to return but it deserves any praise it gets. One of my favorite rentals and favorite settings. Thanks so much to both Beth and Nancy for the thoughtful touches. 04 September 2016 - 18:05:00

    Oh my - what can I say - a lot of wonderful things, actually. The owners of 'Bolinas Blue' have captured the essence of exquisite beauty above this part of Marin's Pacific coastline. The setting for their well designed and thoughtfully decorated guest home is ideal. The attention to detail was spot-on, making the home a joy to experience, inside and out. Everything needed for your stay is available here - ease in booking and prompt correspondence, precise driving directions, well-equipped kitchen, comfortable bedrooms/baths, and a complete information packet upon arrival. The owner and property manager were kind, well organized, and punctual. Beautifully appointed for 2-4(5) people; the home is an absolute gem. We look forward to another visit in the near future. Thank you Nancy, Sid, and Beth. 14 November 2016 - 17:38:00

    Bolinas Blue is an absolute gem. The view alone is spectacular and makes the stay worthwhile. What is equally special is the home itself. The quality of every item in the well-curated home is of the highest order. Yet, it feels incredibly comfortable. There are thoughtful details and instructions throughout ensuring an enjoyable stay. During our time, we enjoyed cooking in the well-stocked kitchen picking up supplies from the Bolinas Peoples Store, Star Route and Gospel Flats farm stand, and Marin Sun Farms. Sourcing ingredients in West Marin is great fun and what a kitchen and home to enjoy the meals in! We feel so fortunate to have been able to stay in such a beautiful home and share the best of California living with our family visiting from the UK. We would highly recommend Bolinas Blue for a relaxing and restorative time away from it all. 14 September 2016 - 14:50:00

    If you're seeking the best Pacific view in Bolinas, from a beautifully appointed and impeccably maintained and managed house, this is the place for you. We feel exceptionally fortunate to have the opportunity to spend time at this extraordinary place. Many thanks to our hosts for making this experience available. 27 September 2016 - 02:34:00

    This home was over the top wonderful! From reservations to check out, this was a stress free process. We arrived very late into the evening/early morning and had a light left on for us along with detailed driving directions. We fell fast asleep in comfortable beds where there was glasses and water left at our beside- woke up to the most amazing view in the city! The house alone was clean and updated and has so much character that made us feel right at home. we cannot express our thanks to Sid, Nancy and Beth enough for this wonderful experience and hospitality! If you ever find yourself in Bolinas, California this is hands down the place to go! Thank you, your friends from Wisconsin 17 October 2016 - 01:04:00

    This was everything we had hoped for, and more. The wonderfully decorated home, with it's elegant yet relaxed atmosphere has everything you'll need. That, coupled with the natural beauty of the setting makes this the perfect spot in Bolinas. In addition, it is graciously managed by the owners. Thank you! to Nancy, Sid, and Molly 28 February 2017 - 20:31:00

    My family and I have stayed at this lovely rental before and the beauty of this location never ceases to amaze us. Here for Thanksgiving this time and so thankful for our gracious hosts in making this slice of heaven available for others to enjoy ... 27 November 2016 - 17:12:00

    Fantastic. Everything was perfect down to the last detail. Beyond my expectations and I am pretty fussy 04 June 2017 - 17:09:00

    Bolinas Blue is an amazing property. It is a two bedroom house that sits on top of a bluff overlooking the crescent beach cove below. The house is meticulous with comfortable, top line furnishings and a gourmet kitchen. It has an amazing living room with floor to ceiling glass windows overlooking the waters. It does not have direct beach access and is a short walk into town. Climbing the hill may be a struggle for those with impairments. While we loved exploring the area, we could not wait to return "home" to hang out, read or sit in the backyard with cheeses and wine. JC, the property manager, is great. I initially thought the cost was high for the area -- until we arrived. Bolinas Blue is well worth the price and our family can't wait to return. 14 June 2017 - 14:32:00

    This is one of the best vacation rentals we have ever stayed in. Thank you Nancy for making it so amazing. We hope to be back someday and meet you in person. All the best. 11 August 2017 - 17:44:00

    I can honestly say this was one of my favorite places to stay. The view cannot be beat ! My husband and I travel quite a bit but felt that we struck gold finding this rental and it is practically in our backyard - it is also close to San Francisco and other major sites that draw people to this part of California. The town of Bolinas has a hip-surfing and friendly vibe that draws you in. You can 'let your hair down' kind of place where no one judges you. 29 March 2016 - 19:36:35

    A very lovely and comfortable home with great ocean views. Beautifully designed and maintained. 12 October 2017 - 16:47:00

    The sweeping ocean view from a secluded bluff with well tended gardens and luxurious appointments makes this a most private place to feel well pampered with no visible staff. The interiors are filled with books, rustic antiques, and every modern amenity. Be prepared for some drifts of fog. It is part of the atmosphere of the mysterious setting. The kitchen is well equipped so you can stay in for meals and not miss a moment of access to this constantly revealing view and garden. Beth is welcoming with fresh flowers, good directions and quick responses to requests. A joyful experience. We anticipate another escape to this other world. 15 September 2015 - 06:21:27

    This place is gorgeous and perfect in every way. Fun to cook or bring in take out. Whether we were watching football, reading, hiking or growing through galleries in town we had a wonderful time. The hosts have thought of everything. Definitely coming back. 01 December 2015 - 20:09:26

    The views took our breath away as soon as we entered the property. The care the hosts have gone to make the home beautiful, welcoming and appointed with everything you would ever need was stunning. Even though we never met them their graciousness and obvious history of prior loving gatherings permeated the walls. It was a perfect place for our quiet reflection, walks on the beach, dinners made with local farm ingredients and memorable conversations with my family. The pictures are great but dont capture the truly specialness of the place. We have already rebooked. 04 August 2015 - 21:51:48

    We travel a bit and always seek to rent homes when we do. I can unequivocally say this was the most fantastic home (and experience renting a vacation home) we have ever visited. Prior to our arrival, the correspondence with the home owner was prompt, professional, and polite. In the days leading up to our arrival, the property manager was responsive and informative. And Bolinas Amazing. This extraordinary well kept home and property is gorgeously situated on a bluff overlooking the entrance to the Bolinas lagoon, an incredible view of the entire crescent of Stinson Beach, and the night time twinkles of SF from the huge picture windows of the living room.The house was so tastefully adorned, serene, spacious, and really comfortable. The thoughtful amenities, from the entertainment to utensils, were all top quality. The kitchen offered every possible cooking/dining convience imaginable. Bedrooms, bedding, bathrooms (heated floors), all impressive and comfortable. We hosted my wife's parents for five nights and this wonderful home had the space to accommodate everyone's needs, while also providing opportunities for privacy when desired. It was a pleasure and real privilege to have had the opportunity to stay at this uncommon and exceptional home. A heartfelt and genuine thank you to our hosts - we hope to be back! 04 January 2018 - 16:07:00
