This house was a family home for over 10 years and was recently totally renovated. The property is perfectly nestled above Muir Beach with extensive beach frontage. The owners who are landscape architects designed extensive gardens that were featured in the book 'Gardens by the Sea' by Barbara Seagal, an English author; and featured in Garden Design as well. The house features wrap around decks that connect all the rooms to the outdoor, the gardens, and the ocean. All 4 bedrooms have ocean views. An extra feature of this property is a private studio on the hill which can be leased at the same time for an additional cost.
Other amenities include a BBQ on the deck, a deep jacuzzi tub, and a wonderful garden where you can enjoy the day with a great number of friends and guests.
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.
The house is beautifully located, well equipped, clean and very comfortable. Great for a quick getaway with family and friends. Thank you Isis and David!
Iris and David have a perfect spot for a family retreat. Comfortable, cozy, well decorated with pretty views everywhere-from eh living room , bedrooms, desks, heard and seating area overlooking the beach. Hosted a small family and guest thanksgiving dinner here-and on arrival there were nice seasonal touches on the table! Beautiful views from their yard (and the hot tub). Minor snafu with the furnace-and David was very prompt and helpful. Wifi didn't work (but that wasn't why we came).
I love Muir Beach. The hiking and biking is brilliant. This house sits right above the beach with awesome views . Love the chairs at the end of the garden overlooking the ocean. Can listen to the ocean lying in bed. House is very comfortable and great layout. Has everything we needed
I rented this house for six close girlfriends to celebrate a 60th birthday. When we unlocked the door and stepped in our eyes were immediately drawn to the incredible view of the Pacific Ocean from the large windows. The oohs and ahhs began! The house had everything we needed, the garden and patio are lovely, and each day we awoke to the beauty surrounding us. Just steps from the beach, we would wake early to walk the beach with coffee cup in hand. At night we watched the stars while relaxing in the hot tub. It was truly perfect.
I do want to share a warning that has nothing to do with the rental. While making a quick stop at the Muir Beach Overlook, thieves broke into our rental car and stole 3 purses. This happened very quickly and with a busy parking lot. Do not leave anything of value in your car!
We loved our stay at the Muir beach house. Beautiful area. Our kids had a fabulous time playing in the yard and walking to the beach. The house is beautiful with three bedrooms having an ocean view and a great kitchen. There's a great walking /hiking trail very nearby that we enjoyed each day. The only downside was we were not informed that the semi private beach is in fact a nude beach. Would have been nice to know having kids heading down by themselves.
Had a wonderful time with my siblings (all over 65), including a handicapped sister. The older home was very welcoming and comfortable. When we had a cold night we were able to light a great fire and talk story until late in the eve. Met Isis and was enchanted with her and her hope to make our stay as wonderful as she could make it. We hit a perfect time with sunny skies and warm spring weather. A short walk to the beach, and a private serene setting. Not the Ritz but a good, warm and roomy beach house.
Muir Beach is located only 20 minutes from San Francisco which makes it a perfect location for year round residents. The community has a newly remodeled community center which is rented for weddings, parties, and other celebrations. We are located close to the Zen Center, Golden Gate National Recreation Center, Stinson Beach, and the famous Dipsea Trail from Mill Valley to Stinson beach.
