About Victoria Hamilton-Rivers

I am a British interior designer and home stager, living and working in the San Francisco Bay Area. As the daughter of a British army officer, I have visited and lived in many parts of the world: Europe, Asia, Australia, and the United States of America.

I first visited and fell in love with the San Francisco Bay Area in 1997. I became a permanent resident in 2003. All my life I have been drawn to and fascinated by the ocean and to the life within and around it.

In 2008 I realized a lifelong dream and bought two cottages overlooking the Pacific Ocean on the northern California coast in the idyllic community of Muir Beach.

While owning one cottage by the beach has been a lifelong dream, I never imagined myself owning two. As an interior designer, the obvious and exciting thing to do was to renovate one of them and offer it for rental to those of you around the world who share my passion for clean and simple interiors and the extraordinary privilege it is to be close to nature and the sea.

The Magical Cottage At Muir Beach is simply that. Month after month it gives me tremendous pleasure to offer my guests a really exceptional place to stay where they can relax and unwind to the sound of the ocean in the newly renovated cottage. Within the backdrop and magnificence of Marin County’s Golden Gate National Recreational Area, heaven and earth are literally at your fingertips.

People from all over the world agree The Cottage At Muir Beach is the perfect nurturing “home away from home” on the Northern California Coast. Whether you are seeking solitude, a romantic getaway, a family vacation, or celebrating someone or something special, it’s all here at The Cottage At Muir Beach.

Victoria Hamilton-Rivers.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Spent a relaxing anniversary weekend at the cozy Cottage at Muir Beach. We soaked in the beauty of the views, enjoyed dining in, relaxing on the deck. The Cottage at Muir Beach is better than advertised - the description and pictures don't do it justice. Victoria is a hospitable and gracious host - we will return as often as we can.

Exactly as described! Beautiful, relaxing, stunning views. Loved the short drive to Muir Woods and Stenson Beach. Walking and hiking to Muir Beach and to the Pelican Inn was an added bonus.
We hope to be back! Thank you, Victoria.

My wife and I truly enjoyed a wonderful getaway at The Cottage at Muir Beach -- mid-way btween Sausalito and Stinson Beach. The cottage is beautiful: well decorated, clean, and well equipped. It sits hight above Muir Beach with the Marin Headlands beyond and San Franbcisco in the dsistance. It's ony takes about 10 minutes to drive to Muir Woods, a wonderful nature preserve and a large grove of redwoods. Enjoy the scenic 30-minute drive to Stinson Beach or head the other was and visit Sausalito and Mill Valley. We'll b back!

Wonderful stay at the Cottage at Muir Beach

  • 5 of 5
My wife, 19 month old daughter and I stayed at the Cottage for five days in July. We had a wonderful time and the cottage as well as the surroundings were breathtaking. The walk down to the beach is less than five minutes, the drive to the overlook is about two minutes, and Muir Woods is less than 10 minutes away! The balcony is spacious and relaxing, the Bose sound system was fantastic inside, and we just truly enjoyed our time here. My wife has been missing the cottage ever since we left. Victoria was great and could not have been a more inviting hostess. Thanks so much!

Cottage Muir Beach

  • 5 of 5
The cottage provided a perfect location to complete our 3 week journey from Phoenix to San Francisco and a great antidote to staying in hotels. It was a good base for visiting San Francisco (20-30 minutes) and for exploring Marin county and we particularly enjoyed seeing harbour seals and seashore birds along the coast. The cottage was very comfortable and beautifully furnished and decorated and impecably clean . The terrace and decking were furnished with the same attention to detail as the interior and provided an extra outdoors living space with a good view of beach and a peaceful place to enjoy a morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening with a good book. We spent 4 days at the cottage with our 18 year old twins. The little attic bedroom was small but perfectly adequate for teenagers of this age who were happy enough with their sleeping space although preferred to dress downstairs where they had full headroom. I am sure younger children would love the adventure of staying in the attic although the stairs would be too steep for very young children to negotiate safely. I would love to visit the cottage at Muir Beach outside the "fog" season as I am sure the views would be stunning. Victoria was a friendly, helpful and charming host and she is right to be proud of the beautiful holiday home she has created. We would be very happy to return to the cottage again and to recommend to friends.

Owner's Response: Thank you for coming to stay at The Cottage At Muir Beach and for your thoughtful comments.

I'm delighted that you elected to end your tour with some R&R by the ocean and that you appreciated the magic and uniqueness of the place regardless of how unpredictable the fog can be at times, in this part of the world.

For me, and for the vast majority of our visitors, the occasional fog adds a welcome and mesmerizing cooling blanket when temperatures are running particularly high - a characteristic part of experiencing the San Francisco Bay Area and all it's beauty.

We look forward to your return!
