About The Owner

I’m a native of the area raised in Marin and Sonoma counties, the home is where my Dad was raised and where my Grandparents lived for 60 years. My Dad and I bought out his siblings about five years ago and I currently live in the upstairs. I have worked in the solar industry for the past 11 years and yes there is a PV solar system on the house.

The house is very special to my family and to me, not only because of the memories and history but it is truly magical here.

Why The Owner chose Muir Beach

Muir Beach is magical and the view from this unit cannot be captured in a photo. Because the view is of the length of the beach and the ocean, the view is constantly changing with every wave and high to low tides.

Winter months are fantastic great wave action and beautiful sky colors.

What makes this apartment unique

The beach / ocean views cannot be captured on film, wild life in full view with deer and small foxes usually right outside the window. we see Bobcats, skunks, raccoons, coyotes and if your lucky a wolf or mountain lion! Not to mention the beach life living in the tide pools, Pelicans, red tail hawks and falcons and birds of every size shape and color!

Amazing view, cozy view, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time a Misti's rental. Waking up and being able to see the sun rise over the mountains and reflect off the crashing waves was amazing! Misti was very friendly and even left fresh flowers the day we got there. We have told our friends about this beautiful place and are will come back in the future!

Phenomenal view, warm and cozy house, couldn't ask for more

  • 5 of 5

We had a phenomenal time at Misti's rental. The views are spectacular; the apartment itself is warm and cozy. I'm a Muir Beach native and my wife and I rented this space for our wedding. As a native I'm bound to be more critical than other visitors, but I absolutely loved the place. The view of the ocean in the morning itself is worth the trip. The bed is comfortable; the shower is clean and the water is hot. There is nothing I found wanting. It's only a 5 minute walk from the beach and the surrounding area is beautiful. We were happy to meet Westley, Misti's dog, and Kevin, Misti's cat, both of whom were extremely well behaved, sociable, and adorable. Misti herself was extremely friendly and accommodating, both before and during the trip. Even though I have a place to stay (my family's house) nearby, my wife and I are strongly considering renting this place again next time we visit. Highly recommended. If you've never been to Muir Beach or a Northern California coastal location writ large, your mind will be blown. Washer/dryer on the property sweetens the deal. Just wish we could take Westley and Kevin with us!!!!

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

WOW. This was the perfect place to get away and relax. The views are amazing and there is so much to do within minutes. The hiking trails above the beach go on for days. Misti was wonderful and extremely helpful from day one of booking our trip. My only complaint is that we could not stay longer. Thank you for the wonderful retreat.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Misti's cottage was adorable, clean and had the most amazing ocean view from every room (bathroom doesn't count:) We brought up groceries and were able to enjoy our meals/picnics thanks to a fully supplied kitchen. Also, this location is very close to Pelican Inn which is a lovely place for lunch or dinner. Misti was very warm and accommodating and even welcomed our little 5 lb. Maltese, Kenny, which meant so much to us. Definitely a place we will return to. Thanks so much, Misti!

Great views, ok lodging

  • 4 of 5

The location can't be beat. Beautiful panoramas from the apartment and a walk up the hill gives you a breathtaking view of the Pacific from high above. The apartment isn't new, but is cozy and comfortable. Unfortunately, Misti has a young dog who has the run of the property. "Westly" greeted us and was difficult to discourage. He jumped on us and joined us for outside meals, which we did not enjoy. He also walked with us to the beach and spent much of one afternoon barking. The unit had a bit of a dog smell. We are former dog owners and generally don't mind having a dog about if it is well trained. Unfortunately, Westly is not well trained. He is young and Misti must be working at getting him better behaved, but he did make our stay less enjoyable than it would have been without his rambunctiousness.

Owner's Response: As the saying goes no good deed goes unpunished! I only allowed access to the back property because the guests only stayed one day and wanted them to get the most out of the stay, they didn't appear to be the hiking type, so wanted to give them the opportunity of viewing the fantastic view from the back property (otherwise only visible from hiking trails). The back area of the property is Wesley's area (9 months old pup at the time) and so if he was hanging around the food or barking it's because this is his turf. Although I don't quite get why he was barking, he is a puppy and loves everyone. I'm here at the beach and at most 15 minutes away and make it very clear if there is any problem let me know and it will be rectified immediately. I was told by the guest they liked dogs and if would have been told differently would never have offered admittance to the back property, or would have brought the puppy in during the time they were on the back property. The unit floors are tile and steamed cleaned after each guest, Wesley is not allowed in the unit, so there is zero chance there was a dog smell. I checked with the cleaners and they swear the floors were steamed, soŠ I find this review to be terribly unfair and with very minimum communication would have been resolved, it would have taken one minute to contact me and because I live in the upstairs unit actually less than a minute. Living in a National Park is fantastic, but help is needed to keep away skunks and mice and poison is not an option for me, so the cat's job is to monitor the mice population and the dog keeps away the skunks. Wesley is turning into a great dog, smart as could be, super sweet and if he has a barking problem it must have come and gone in that one day! Everyone LOVES Wesley and Kevin the cat, Wesley is a herding shepherd mix mutt (35-40LB) and Kevin is a huge orange sweetheart of a tabby, they are both rescue animals and have the best lives ever here at the beach. They do not enter the unit, this is not allowed. Wesley is smart and has been in training he is super smart and a great dog with the biggest ears on the planet earth. I find the review to be inappropriate considering the guest arrived late the first night (at dusk), so only stayed one day and should have stated this in the review and should have let me know they wanted me to bring the dog into the house. I post on another site and have over 200 positive reviews!

Soothing Sounds of Surf

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect getaway to experience the soothing sounds of waves crashing on the shore at night. Enjoy the glorious view of Muir Beach and the Pacific Ocean as the sun rises and sets each day. The apartment is simply perfect overall and has a nice tall bed for viewing the ocean and shoreline while waking up. The living room had windows that showcased the beach and water below and opened up to allow you to enjoy the fresh air. The kitchen is perfect for two and has a small but real refrigerator (a big plus!) with a separate freezer adequate to store enough food for a week especially if you want to just hang out and eat in which we did for a couple of days (our do nothing but enjoy the view day). No microwave but we used the toaster oven to reheat leftovers. There was a good amount of condiments and other goodies left by previous visitors but bring some of your own just in case. The cooking utensils/linens etc are more than adequate for preparing meals. The propane BBQ is a big plus! Access to the beach is on the road below the house (yes you do have to walk up steps to get to the vacation home from your parking space). From the road it is a short walk down and back up again with nice views on the way. The new parking lot to Muir Beach is a short drive just past Pelican Inn which we recommend to eat and drink for a lunch. Muir Woods is only minutes away via Muir Woods road but plan to visit before 9am to avoid the crowds. Once you get familiar with the meandering roads (that’s part of the adventure!) the surrounding areas offer great experiences all within 20 miles from this dream vacation house. We stayed for ten days so we were able to visit Muir Woods, Mill Valley, Stinson Beach, Bolinas, Point Reyes, Marin Headlands and Tiburon and even just stayed home as well. We enjoyed a cool view of the Golden Gate and the wondrous city of San Francisco from Horseshoe Bay area. We stayed away from SF but it is close enough to drive to. Finally we could not have wished for a more gracious host with Misti. We really felt like we were family. We will visit this special place in the future!
