Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

We had an amazing stay at this wacky hobbit house. The space is overall much roomier that presented or expected. Charmingly Hodge podge but all the essentials are there and very nice. While there were 6 working land line phones throughout the house, there were zero in the bathroom or upstairs sun room... Just beware in case you need to make a call in either of these locations...

A piece of history and a great location. VERY quirky and not for those who need room to stretch out or a serene, spare setting. If you’re prepared to enter into a Bolinas mindset and have a bit of an adventure, you’ll enjoy it, but it’s not your average VRBO. The owners do a lovely job of providing all the comforts of home and then some, with helpful pointers and little signs everywhere guiding you through the world that they’ve created.

This home would be much improved if a lot of stuff were removed. For instance there were three mattresses on the futon frame and thirteen pillows. Can't sit on it without clearing stuff off. There is a lot of clutter in general Also the areas for sitting outside have not been kept up I think the first picture is misleading because the picture is of a space upstairs which is only accessible from an outside staircase and is not particularly useful space because the kitchen, living room and bathroom are on the first floor.

We were just going to sleep in the house and hike during the day. Instead, we explored the town, relaxed in the home, cooked in the little kitchen which had all the gadgets we needed, plus pans, mixing bowls, spices. Sha Sha was very friendly and helpful.

It's a funky little house but worked for us. Great location near town and beaches. We would stay again.

ShaSha's place feels like stepping into a little dream. It's really the best of both worlds in that the wood stove, functional antique phones and 1910 construction gives you the sensation of being away from it all, but you don't lose out on amenities - there's high quality bedding and towels, strong hot water, TV with streaming networks hidden under textiles that suit the décor, and a Very fancy bidet with a warmed seat. You can spend a couple days just discovering all the gorgeous intricacies of the space. There are many quirks but ShaSha left clearly labeled instructions all over the house, which I really appreciated. We didn't need to ask any questions, but when we did contact her she was very prompt/available. The Japanese tub is a tight fit for two, but we didn't mind, it still beats out a hot tub with all the chemicals and loud noise. Looking up at the stars in the bath was a highlight. Overall we loved our stay and hope to come back. Also we recommend the early morning kayak/paddle board tour with Cecilia through the Stinson beach shop. She'll make sure you're out at high tide and that you respect the local habitat. Two baby seals swam and played in the wake of my paddle board and I'll never forget it!

As advertised, this is a sweet little hobbit house, just a very short walk to the beach and to the center of town. It was a terrific base for hikes on Tam, strolls on the mesa, and lots of beach trips. We were thrilled to be able to bring our well-behaved dog with us. (And Sha Sha makes it easy, with plenty of dog towels on hand.) While it was perfect when the weather was good, the place felt pretty small for us with the dog when it rained all day. If you are bringing a pup, I recommend going when it is dry -- you will love it.

This isn't a home it's an experience into a creative mind. I loved it and the energy was perfect. If you feel the calling - it is for you! Checkin, communication, everything was perfect and easy. The bed was SO comfy!

The Cottage has a lot of great art work, comfy furniture and little rooms/sitting spaces you get to explore. Loved the upstairs sun room and TV room. The internet is very fast in the house. The location is walking distance to the "main" strip. My husband and I did a longer walk, to Agate beach along the coast line as well.
