                        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.

                        Recommended for: Romantic getaway, girls getaway, sightseeing.

I will forever have nothing but the fondest, sweetest memories of my delicious few days at the Cottage. Your exquisite taste and attention to detail makes all the difference, and your wonderful hospitality is very much appreciated. I look forward to returning again soon.

                        Thank you so much! This place was beautiful, relaxing, and breath taking. We really enjoyed the Point Reyes National Sea Shore, and the De Young Museam! We're sad to leave! But we walk away with some great memories! Great place and a wonderful (if too brief!) time!

                        Thank You Victoria for sharing your charming cottage with us! We had a magical time exploring the beautiful scenery and listening to the ocean waves from the cottage. We loved spending time in the attic playing games and watching the stars. Thank You again and hope to see you again soon!!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: 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. Victoria Hamilton-Rivers.

                      Why the Owner Chose Muir Beach:
                      This is the most beautiful location on the entire California coast.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      Hiking, designing interiors while being inspired by the ocean.
