Very private coastal home nestled at treetop level yet with dramatic ocean views from every room. House was built and finished October 2010, so every single thing about this house is perfectly new and sparkling!! Light filled house with sky lights, soaring ceilings, floor to ceiling windows with unobstructed views of the Pacific Ocean, Headland Mountains, crashing waves and San Francisco beyond. Huge wrap around deck, private deck off master bedroom with Adirondacks and lounge chair for sunning, relaxing, watching the waves or nighttime stargazing. Hawks and falcons fly overhead as whales and dolphins pass by at various times of the year.
After a day of hiking the endless coastal and mountain trails, watch the moon rise from your living room window seats, enjoy a BBQ on your deck, take a deep jacuzzi tub to relax, and finally get lulled to sleep at night by the sounds of the crashing Pacific waves and the far off fog horn which escorts boats through the Golden Gate Bridge!
I first moved to Muir Beach in 1996, and knew this community was my heart's desire. I delight in taking advantage of all it has to offer...kayak trips up the coast, full moon mountain biking in the hills, and sunrise hikes to taste the salt air, hear the rushing waves, and see coyotes run the hills if I am lucky. Though family reasons have taken me back east for awhile, Muir Beach feels like my true home.
Beverly Biondi purchased this house in 2010
I built this home high on a hillside, hoping for a private setting, and a feeling that I could be 'outside' while indoors. That is just what I have. Sometimes I even need to wear my sunglasses inside on a great sunny day!
I recently named my house 'Aurora', after the Roman Goddess of the Dawn. As my house faces southeast, both gorgeous sunrises and bright full moon rises will greet you over the headlands, and have you awestruck at the beauty that surrounds you. The nicest part about this house is that although you are in a house filled with huge panes of glass that let you see all of the amazing outdoor scenery that surrounds you, you are nestled in the treetops and feel at once very exposed to nature yet tucked away in the most private place around.
The house was the perfect retreat for our family holiday gathering. The sound of the wind in the trees and the ocean waves were just what we needed this Christmas! With a little dance party in the living room, some wine, amazing sunsets and gorgeous hiking, we had it all!
Upon first glance, we were thrilled. The view as you descend onto the deck was incredible; we could see all the way down the coastline to the city. The open floor plan and giant windows allowed that gorgeous view to frame a light and airy living space. The decor is casual, tasteful, clean and new. We slipped into a relaxing vacation mode with a glass of wine on the deck and watched birds and bountiful butterflies. The sun was shining onto the deck and into the house and a there was a soft coastal breeze.
When it came time to cook, we were pleased to find a kitchen stocked with all the pans, glasses, utensils we would need and even some staples and condiments. The generosity of the owner was apparent.
The bedrooms kept with the same light, airy feel as the upstairs. The beds were cozy and the bathrooms clean.
We had an event at the Pelican Inn, which is a short drive, but did not want to leave the Coastal Home. Although we didn't have time to walk the trail to the beach, we drove down to the main beach for a refreshing swim and a fantastic hike up a trail to look over the cove and ocean.
Our only regret is that we didn't have more time.
lovely home. well equipped kitchen with awesome views of the pacific ocean!!!!
Beverly's home was an ideal base for my family's two week vacation in Northern California. The property was appointed with everything we required and my daughters loved the fact they saw some of the local wildlife; highlights being the family of Raccoons, some Deer and a friendly Blue Jay which they adopted.
The property itself was very comfortable and it was a delight to listen to the waves crashing below whilst lying in bed. Location wise it worked well for us as it provided easy access to San Francisco and surrounding areas whilst also offering up Sonoma and Napa county for forays into wine country.
One word of caution would be the hill up to the property is very twisty and if arriving late at night (as we did) it could be an issue for a less than confident driver. We also had issues with our sat nav taking us past Ahab Drive onto another Charlottes Way which was a dead end. To avoid this I would advise typing Ahab Drive into the sat nav and following Beverly's directions from there.
To conclude this property provides magnificent views in a very quiet location and I would not hesitate to recommend.
Absolutely Spectacular views of Muir beach and Pacific Ocean. As others have said, it's even prettier in person. Muir Woods, beach, and Mt tam are a short distance away. We would definitely stay here again.
Our stay was fantastic! Our family didn't want to leave! We were greeted to the view and the panoramic setting. The house is privately situated with direct viewing of the beach and the coastline. The house was very clean and well appointed for cooking for our family. The instructions that were there were comprehensive. The proximity to Mill Valley is very short for shopping and dining out. However, it was easy to not go anywhere in the car with the beach access and location. I would recommend this place to all my friends and family! Bravo.
We had a wonderful time and felt right at home. The place was beautiful, the scenery was amazing, and had everything we needed. It was comfortable and homey. Our family spent some quality time together and hope to do it again. Anything we needed was right at the bottom of the hill and just sitting on the deck with a cup of coffee and a book was all you want to do. Thank you for having us.
Welcome to Muir Beach, an unusually beautiful beach community on the Northern California coast. When you visit here you will feel a world apart from the bustle of the city as you bath your senses in all that nature has to offer....yet you are only a 25 minute car ride from incredible San Francisco. Step out your door and walk to the beach for beach-combing, tide pooling, and body surfing. Hike endless mountain and coastal trails or rent a bike for some of the best mountain biking to be found. Enjoy authentic English pub food and fare at our local Pelican Inn. Only a fifteen minute ride to Sausalito, 25 minutes to San Francisco, and just a day trip away from Napa and Sonoma Valley's vineyards to the north, or Monterey Bay Aquarium to the south. Muir Beach is perfect for both active, curious families as well as those wishing for the ultimate romantic getaway!!
