Small, rustic house right on the beach. Very close to San Francisco - 20 min from the Golden Gate Bridge. Romantic getaway. Perfect for couples or as a quite retreat for an individual. Wood burning fireplaces in the living room and bedroom. Large deck and private hot tub overlooking the ocean.

That one word sums up this place. It couldn't possibly have been better. Thank you, Sigward!
Our experience here will certainly be repeated. The location and house was perfect for a romantic getaway. Muir Woods is very close but you don't need your car to see the unbelievable views from the trails just across the cove. The view from the deck could cost 10x as much and be worth it. The owner communicated well and was very helpful.
We had a wonderful four days - filled with amazing views and awesome hikes. The beach house allows guest to watch the action (so many happy dogs) on the beach from a lofty quiet perch. Being so close to lots of trails allowed us to take in even more amazing views of the coast and even a peak at one of the Golden Gate's towers. All in all just a fantastic vacation that was very relaxing & easy to do. Oh, and the house was great too!
This place is incredible. From our initial interactions with Sigward to the moment of our departure – everything was 5 star. We arrived on a blustery day and were pleasantly surprised at the location. The pictures were just a foregleam of the true magnificence of this dream home. It’s not too far off the beaten path however secluded enough to offer the privacy we were seeking. Access was easy – we didn’t have to meet anyone so we could arrive at whatever time we wanted. We just opened the lock box, grabbed the key and we were in! First thing we did was walk out onto the front deck and breathed in a panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean and also the beach below. We then inspected the premises and it was just as described (really better). Everything we needed was right at our fingertips – from cooking utensils to internet access. The bedroom was cozy and had access to the front deck (we left the door open so that we could listen to the ocean waves lull us to sleep). The kitchen was amazing – we cooked dinner one night and enjoyed a couple of nice steaks that we grilled in the fully equipped kitchen. We didn’t use the hot tub however we opened the lid and the water was warm and ready to go. Incidentally the hot tub is in an ideal spot – you can sit inside it (perhaps enjoying some wine) and take in the beautiful scenery all around. We took a nice walk down to the beach (which was easily accessible) and enjoyed a nice hike on an easily accessible trail nearby. When we had a few questions, we emailed Sigward and his response time was lighting fast. I could go on and on but the gist is this: you have to rent this place! You will be glad you did and I guarantee it will be a mainstay getaway spot for you for years to come!
Doesn't get any better in terms of being remote, but close to San Francisco and cute towns. The beach is wonderful and the owner very responsive. We will be back.
My husband and I stayed at this beach house for a belated honeymoon and we could not have been more thrilled. It is a small, unassuming spot with a million-dollar-view of Muir Beach and the constant sound of waves crashing along the shore. If you want a fancy, 5-star hotel feel, this might not be the place for you. But for us, it was absolute heaven! We did a good bit of traveling into San Francisco, Mill Valley (the nearest town just about a 15 min drive - very cute town! Lots of shopping and eateries), Muir Woods (just 10 min away), and even into Napa Valley. While at the cabin, we got to enjoy the stunning views from the balcony, and even cooked our own breakfast a few times in the fully functioning kitchen. This spot is absolutely perfect for a romantic or just plain relaxing getaway!
The first night we were here the hot tub was not heating properly, but Sigward was extremely responsive and we were able to enjoy it by the second night.
I would HIGHLY recommend this little piece of heaven to anyone looking for a sweet beach retreat!
