She has performed all over he world.Sha Sha used to come to Bolinas with her family when she was a child and the house looks likes the dollhouses she made. Albert handcrafted much of the house himself and works in the Bolinas Peoples Natural Food store.
Sha Sha Higby,Albert Hollander purchased this Cottage in 1986
Why Sha Sha Higby,Albert Hollander chose Bolinas
We both love this town as it is rural,we can walk to the ocean every afternoon and yet be in the city in an hour to have whatever culture we need. Albert lived in this house for years before we bought it. It used to be a garage during the turn of he century and was gradually enlarged over the years.
What makes this Cottage unique
Cozy evenings. We spent a long time making the house an artistic experience filling it with the textiles we collected during our travels when I was performing. Sha Sha had a Fulbright in India for research in textiles when she and Albert were married. At night I love to take walks to the beach and a loop around the town. It is all very close.

This is a sweet space for a cozy time.
Thank you for writing your impression. We hope you will come back again soon. We installed a bidet .
Cozy and quirky
This is the place for good meals, conversation, good books, contemplation and walking. It is NOT the place for people who prefer large interior spaces and uncluttered lines. This cottage is full of textiles, pictures, antique phones, sculptures and wood carving collections. And just an FYI: you will need to use the wood burning stove to keep warm in November.
A great location, in a totally unique setting. Loved the house. Communication was excellent with the owners. Would definitely recommend to anyone. We hope to stay here again soon! Thanks so much!
Glad it all worked great despiir the dituation
We enjoyed our quick Bolinas get away very much! The love and detail that went into creating the cabin is quite amazing and takes you on a wonderful journey.
Wonderful house in Bolinas!
We had a great time staying in this unique house. The cottage has many intriguing features, including lots of masks and other artwork, a cozy living area and a delightful upstairs outdoor porch. We could walk to the beach and into town with ease. Our host was out of town but kept in touch as necessary for any questions. Bolinas is an interesting, laid back beach community with just enough amenities. Our visits to Point Reyes, Muir Woods and San Francisco were easy to accomplish and lots of fun. We would love to visit again, thank you!
We loved it!
