Stinson Beach, California, is less than an hour away from San Francisco. Think of it, you could be sitting on the beach, your feet in the water, and sand crabs biting at your toes. The house sits directly on the beach with clear views of the ocean and the mountains. Most people come here to simply vegetate in the sun, but there's also, should you be so inclined, hiking in the nearby mountains, walking aimlessly on the beach, or body-surfing in the waves. Rentals run Friday to Friday.
The house has three bedrooms. The master bedroom with a king size bed; the back bedroom also with a king sized bed; and lastly, a bedroom behind the living room, with two single beds. Additionally, the living room has three double beds and a couch in front of the fireplace. There are two bathrooms, one full bath and one three-quarter bath. The full kitchen has a microwave, coffeemaker, and two refrigerators.
