Magical Muir Beach Getaway

This is a special time to visit the beach one of those 'once in a lifetime events'.

Walk to the beach, world famous Zen center, bike and hike on Mt Tam!

Muir Woods is a few miles away and San Francisco is only a 20 minute drive.

View the San Francisco lights from the apartment at night and the beach-ocean views by day. Fall asleep to the sound of the ocean waves!

One bedroom, one bath, bathroom has claw-foot tub with shower, full kitchen, washer/dryer and living room.

Living room equipped with TV and DVD player, games and wireless internet.

This is not a share unit, it is a fully equipped one bedroom in-law unit in a cool old house built in 1929.

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 The Bay Area

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!

Breathtaking Views and Wonderful Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

This place was just perfect! A Beautiful Scenic Drive from San Francisco, Wine Country, and Muir Woods! Easily accessible to all 3 locations. May want to rent a more compact car, it would make the driving on the roads in this area a lot easier. Able to hear the waves crashing on the beach! Full Kitchen to make meals, very comfortable bed, and great living/bathroom area to make you feel very welcome and at ease. Many trails to walk around the area, with easy access to Muir Beach (which is right out your front door and your views from the living/kitchen/bedroom). The place was very clean and very well-maintained. Misti was very easy to talk with about any questions about the area and was very prompt in all of her replies. I would highly recommend this place to all of our friends and family.

The Grocery Store before you head to the house, "Good Earth Natural Foods", is very good! They have everything you need and it is on the way to the house. Sushi Ran in Sausalito just north of San Francisco was AMAZING! Also there was a great dive bar around the corner from Sushi Ran called "Smitty's", there were great people there and had local drinks to serve.

Overall this was an amazing vacation spot with many different things to do and see, with a perfect location to get to anything very easily.

Great location, charming suite

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for a quick getaway. While it rained the entire weekend, we didn't care at all. We hunkered down and enjoyed the place, and despite the rainy, grey weather, the view was tremendous out the many windows overlooking Muir Beach and the gorgeous coastline down to the Golden Gate. We did pop down a trail and walk on the beach as well. The owner was very helpful with info & directions. We'll go back again.

Great stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I normally go to Bodega but this time we decided to try something new and stayed at this perfect spot at Muir Beach. Unfortunately we only stayed two nights which was not nearly enough. The views, peacefulness, location, and cute little place were beyond our expectations. We hung out on the beach with our "unleashed" dogs for hours, went for a hike the next day, had coffee overlooking the ocean every morning, and fell asleep each night to the sound of the waves. We enjoyed the occasional visit from the well behaved resident dog who joined us and our dogs at the beach a few times. He was never annoying and kept to himself unless solicited to come join us (unlike one of the reviews I read). Misti was a great host prompt to respond when making reservations or asking questions but other than that we never heard from her. She was very accommodating. The place was well equipped and clean. We will be staying again for sure!

We had a wonderful 3 night stay! Fabulous views, access to the beach and the peace and serenity we needed after a week in the city. Thanks Misti!

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!
