We bought the property in 1990 and lived at the beach full time for 10 years. We recently remodeled the entire house to use it again as our vacation property and to feature as a VRBO. We are landscape architects and have won many awards for our work both nationally and internationally. David is a California native with a strong sensibility for the environment and conservation and Isis is a Brazilian native. We have lived in the US, Europe, and South America and have a strong international sensibility and design sense which is reflected in our house.

Isis Schwartz - please send online inquiries first - phone calls after response purchased this house in 1990

We bought this property from David's parents because of its location, the proximity to San Francisco for our work and all of the amenities the coast offers. As life long environmentalists and ocean enthusiasts there was no better place to live than facing the Pacific Ocean. We also wanted to keep this property in the family and have every intention of continuing the tradition with our children.

Flat ground in front of the house: all of the level areas were created by David and me to derive the greatest enjoyment of the property.Kids can play ball and other games on the lawn, we hosted fabulous Easter Egg hunts and birthday parties with more than 50 people enjoying the property and never feeling crowded.

It felt like home away from home with a fantastic view of the ocean.

This house was perfect for my family. Enough room to spread out. The house was welcoming and beautifully decorated for Christmas. We were able to have breakfast out on the deck. It had all the amenities that we needed. The kitchen was great to cook in. The owners are lovely people to have taken such care to make sure the house was set up. My family loved their stay. Thanks again.

A great getaway

  • 5 of 5
Muir beach and the trails of the Tennessee valley are beautiful spots. This great house,with its beautiful views and plenty of indoor or outdoor seating,was a great place to gather for a family birthday celebration.Everything we needed for food preparation was available and wood for a fire and a great living space for us all to gather in the evening and play games and visit.We heard some great live music at the pelican inn the night we had dinner there,which is a nice walk from the house.After our arrival,there was no need to drive anywhere. Plenty of space and we also rented the small cottage with it's own deck with great views an a quick trail to the beach.We keep talking about going back !

Wonderful place to be...with family and friends, or with a good book.

Each year for the past fifteen or so, our extended family has gathered somewhere along the California/Oregon coast for Thanksgiving. We discovered Stinson beach a few years ago and loved being there...but then we found Muir Beach. The "Muir Beach Ocean and Garden Retreat" is a sweet blend of spectacular and comfortable...the views, the walk to the beach, the sandy/rocky protected little cove that is Muir beach...spectacular. The house, the fireplace, the big open dining/living room, the little cabin up the stairs...just comfortable as can be. And of course, the hot tub after a bracing toe or head in the water down below, is both comfortable and spectacular.

Great location and wonderful space

  • 5 of 5
My family had a one week vacation together at the Muir Beach Ocean and Garden Retreat in July. The location was close to the beach but set up on the hillside which provides absolute privacy. The garden and the house were expansive and thus provided convenient opportunity for individual and small group happenings as well as the entire group around the outdoor or dinning room tables.

The only negative (not really one) is that the house and grounds are much more beautiful then you might imagine from the pictures on the listing. We were simply not prepared for how lovely the house was nor how large and convenient the kitchen was.

All in all, no disappointments. The Holder Family

Great home with the beach just steps away!

  • 5 of 5
This hot Texan just had a fabulous time in this lovely home. Sleep at night with the windows open and listen to the ocean and feel the cool air. What a treat. San Francisco is filled with fun for the tourist inclined. Go eat at the Pelican Inn just a few minutes away. Visit muir woods also,very close by. The home has everything needed. 30 -40 minutes to Fishermans Wharf. So much to do and not enough time! The owner was very responsive to questions. Great place!
Thanks!

A California Christmas

  • 5 of 5
Our extended family (6 adults and 4 kids, ranging in age from 2 to 12) spend five days over Christmas in the Muir Beach Retreat. It accommodated all of us beautifully, and we were very comfortable. The house has so much appeal - great fireplace, well-appointed kitchen, tasteful decorations, and, of course, the fabulous view. The grounds are lovely, too. I wish we could have been out on the patio, but it was just too cold, although some of us did enjoy several sessions in the hot tub.

Our family has spent several holidays in other vacation rentals. The Muir Woods house was like no other that we"ve been in. It was a unique and wonderful experience.
