The Space

Come home to the exquisite peace of West Marin...

This sweet, cozy, and clean studio is adjacent to the Monarch Haven Meditation Retreat House (see my listing on AirBnB) on a very special property on the outer Mesa of Bolinas by Agate Beach, where glorious sunset meditation walks on the beach will restore your soul and replenish your lust for life!

The studio is an open room with charming craftsman architecture and open-beamed A-frame ceiling. There is a new kitchenette with a gas oven and a petite bathroom with sweet little claw foot tub (with endless hot water). The room features a comfortable king-sized bed with immaculately clean linens and new pillows for the deep sleep that comes with such a peaceful atmosphere. Soothing sounds of the ocean will lull you into sweet dreams.

Nice Washer/Dryer facilities are located only 20 yards away in the main house (usually available by arrangement depending on occupancy in the house), and use is included by privilege with your fair contribution toward propane and electrical costs (cheap).

There is a huge garden, wild meadow with a fish pond and a private meditation/yoga/massage studio available for shared use with the main house (depending on occupancy status of main house - usually available).

A Vermont Propane Stove provides ample heat, and handcrafted windows provide beautiful views over the open meadow. A eucalyptus grove borders the property, and is often swarming with migratory Monarch butterflies.

Our very special property features one of the most beautiful walks to the beach in West Marin. It is an hour walk to downtown Bolinas through the unique and beautiful neighborhood of the Big Mesa. The nearest public bus is about a 35 minute walk. There are hundreds of miles of hikes right outside the door, and excellent mountain biking activities.

High-Speed Wi-Fi Internet is included.

Maximum occupancy is 2 people (including children) for stays of less than a month. For stays of a month or longer, we have a maximum occupancy of 1 person, as the space is quite compact for two people and there is a vacation rental next door.

Dogs are strictly not allowed, except for toy lapdogs who don't yap and do their duty outside. Outdoor mouse-hunting cats are very welcome. Cats who need a litter box or that hunt birds are not welcome.

Parties are strictly not allowed.

For stays of a month or longer, we request a fair contribution for your use of PGE and Propane. Rentals are available for up to 3-6 months max. The cottage is fully furnished and there is no room for any additional furnishings.

Private, safe, quiet, and peaceful, this charming cabin is a wonderful retreat for your soul!

***We are currently offering negotiable rent options for handymen skilled with construction and responsible live-in caretakers through April of next year.

  • A beautiful charming studio - with everything you need, including access to a meditation room built outside, and of course a great host :-) The beach is a short walk through the woods, you will see deer everyday, and gospel flat farm is a short drive away for fresh produce. Perfect place to get away and relax in nature, tons of hiking around, and beaches (Bolinas, Stinson, Muir). The place is on a dirt road, there is a steep driveway - but non issue if you follow Elsa's suggestions, I stayed a month, have a MINI :-)

  • Both the Studio and Main House are -- almost indescribably -- gorgeous. The nature around the estate is beautiful and pristine, and it's only a couple minutes' walk along a bubbling creek to the beach. The house itself was built by hand by the owners and recently renovated. One could spend days exploring each artistic detail in the floors, rafters, bathrooms and bedrooms. The house is perfectly set up to accommodate guests: a spacious kitchen with everything you need to make a feast, Apple TV for netflix and other entertainment, a responsive team of people (host, property caretaker) available to answer any questions you have, and lists of ideas for nearby excursions. Perfect for short term AND long term stays. Thanks, Elsa!!!
