Nestled above Muir Beach overlooking the ocean, the headlands and San Francisco in the distance, you’ll find The Cottage at Muir Beach – a stylish getaway ideal for those looking to relax and unwind in the peace and tranquility of glorious ocean and mountain views.
This magical and enchanting rural escape features a charming living / dining area, kitchen, bathroom, master bedroom, attic / loft sleeping area. Private deck and parking for 2 cars. The Cottage at Muir Beach is located in the heart of Marin County’s stunning Golden Gate National Recreation Area providing fabulous opportunities for outdoor pursuits.
The Cottage At Muir Beach is situated next door to Mole's Cottage separated by a private and inspiring succulent garden (also see listing # 672817.) The location of both these cottages not only provides privacy for those seeking a private retreat, they also cater to families and friends who wish to book two properties in reasonably close proximity so they can vacation in the same spectacular location if required.
The Cottage at Muir Beach is enveloped by the constant therapeutic sound of the ocean and is the kind of heaven on earth that soothes the soul. Although it is within easy reach of everything, it feels like a world apart. Owned, operated and decorated by renowned British interior designer 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.

This is the most beautiful location on the entire California coast.

We couldn't have chosen a better location ore our trail running holiday! Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us - we will be back!
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.
Staying at the Cottage at Muir beach is a real treat! Nestled on the hillside overlooking Muir beach was breathtaking. Just a short drive to Muir Woods made our day outing a breeze!
We stayed with our children over Christmas and felt comfortable in every way. Victoria has stocked the house with games, books and dvd's. We had great family time together and took advantage of all of Victoria's suggestions regarding things to do and see while visiting.
I appreciated the eye for detail and the attention given for guests comfort.
I hope to stay again someday. Definitely worth the expense!
My husband and I recently spent our anniversary at the cottage. It was in the perfect location to explore nearby muir beach and muir woods. The cabin had everything we needed and we enjoyed our time here. Highly recommend.
The ocean views are amazing and the accommodations clean and well-appointed. 10 minutes from Muir Woods, walking distance to beaches and hikes - this cottage has it all!
We loved our time at The Magical Cottage at Muir Beach. From the moment you drive up the driveway, you know you are someplace special. Our two girls loved the loft and having their own space. We slept with the windows open and listened to the waves all night. Victoria has included everything you could possibly need for a relaxing stay-- as well as really great wi-fi if you want! There are books and games and a great selection of DVD's. The community of Muir Beach is amazing-- everyone was friendly and it is an easy walk to both beaches. We had a delightful lunch at the Pelican Inn, and went to the Overlook every night to watch the sunset over the Farrallon Islands. You cannot go wrong with this cottage. It is a truly exceptional gem.
My sweetie and I sought a cozy, romantic, quiet, ocean view cottage within an hour of SF where we could hibernate and/or hike for 3 days. Victoria's Magic Cottage was perfect in every way - the views from the living room and bedroom were stunning and waves lulled us to sleep each night. The decor and facilities were excellent; clean and comfortable. There were maps/directions of things to see and do nearby. We had gorgeous weather before a storm rolled in...and enjoyed breakfast on the deck and later, the wind/waves of the storm.
It was the perfect getaway cottage for us, and we look forward to returning again and again.
