Muir Beach apartment description

Magical Muir Beach Getaway
Some may have heard about the Muir Beach closure, the parking lot is closed allowing only residents to have access and this is fantastic! We have the beach to ourselves and immediately wildlife I have never seen before has returned.
The parking-lot is being moved and luckily my unit is on the far end of the beach, so the parking lot (old and new) is not visible from the unit and being .5 miles away from the construction only the waves can be heard.
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.

                    Misti has a beautiful property, all is as pictured. Except the view, photos cant do it Justis. Great person to deal with. Be sure to check out Muir Woods National Monument (easy walk thru a giant redwood forest) just a couple miles away and Muir overlook. Very curvy road up mountain but fun to drive. 15 min. to Sausalito (cool town).

                    I arrived with my two little dogs for three nights for a bit of a retreat. The home was perfect for our needs -- it is somewhat small, but it has everything you need as well as a REALLY comfortable bed with fantastic, out-of-this-world views of Muir Beach. We were just a staircase away from the beach during low tide, and steps away from various trails -- although beware that there are not many trails that allow dogs. Also good to know is that there was no fireplace -- not that I would have built a fire, but for those of you who are looking for a fireplace. The house is also situated up on a small hill, so you have to walk up some stairs to get to the front door. If you have lots of luggage or things you want to bring, keep that in mind a well. Otherwise, I loved it and would definitely go back again!

                    I stayed here recently on a solo vacation and it was absolutely breathtaking. The pictures really do not do the place justice. The views were unbelievable, and you can hear the ocean from every room. The location was also perfect. There are hiking trails everywhere, and your are minutes from several state parks and Stinson beach. The city is about a 20 minute drive. Misti was very easy to work with. I didn't actually ever meet her, but I had one small issue figuring out the washing machine and she returned my call within a few minutes. The other reviewers were right about the windy roads. I thought I was lost and the road to the cottage is definitely narrow. The cottage is essentially situated on the side of a cliff, so be prepared to climb some stairs to get to it. The cottage itself has the basic necessities. I taught myself how to use a french press (very easy!). There is no microwave, but I found the cooktop and large toaster oven to be more than adequate. There are condiments, spices, coffee, tea and a few other basics. The claw foot tub is absolutely glorious. I hope I get to go back someday. I have never stayed in such a beautiful place!

                    This cabin was what was promised by the owner. It was very clean and welcoming. The view was absolutely beautiful. The neighborhood was very quiet and often our family were the only ones at the beach. Only wish we had more time!

                    Wonderful, relaxing stay with incredible views! We stayed four nights for our anniversary and loved being able to see the incredible views of Muir Beach and San Francisco. Great place to hike--we made several trips down to the beach and spent one morning at Muir Woods. The apt. Is fairly well-stocked, so we ate all our meals (except for dinner one night at the Pelican Inn) here. Misti was very personable and patient with my numerous e-mails. And did I mention the views? Nothing like going to sleep with the sound of the ocean and waking up to the waves and fog.

                    Wow! We surely enjoyed the views we woke up to every morning of our stay at Muir Beach! The pictures did not do the property justice: it is well maintained and very clean. We liked that we could get away from the city and stay in a quieter spot. We had our anniversary dinner at Pelican Inn and I highly recommend it. Although it is walkable from the apartment, we took the car as the climbing up and down the hills did not appeal to us at this time. As others have stated, the steps up to the apartment are quite steep (definitely not for the disabled); also the drive to the house and the parking area are better with a smaller vehicle. Well worth it, and we would do it again! Thanks, Misti, for your hospitality and for cleaning up all the mosquitoes before we arrived!

                    This little gem overlooking Muir beach was simply beautiful. Location was fantastic and had the path to beach just below the house. The house was so cute. The view from the bed was breathtaking. Watching the mist come in and out every morning was awsome. It would have been nice to have a small BBQ outside. We suggested this to the owner and she said she would get one. We would recommend this to anyone who wanted a getaway at Muir beach.

                    We just arrived home today from our honeymoon at the Muir Beach cottage. WHAT A BEAUTIFUL STAY! I haven't a single bad thing to say. Lets start with the amazing, relaxing, private, location. The cottage was perfect, clean, and Misti was great. We woke up at sunrise every single day and walked along the beach/trails before coming home for breakfast on the patio. It was heavenly. We explored all over the area in the day and it was nice to come back to the cottage to relax at the end of the day. We enjoyed every single second and will without a doubt be back. Misti, thank you so much for having us.

                  Owner info

                  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 Muir Beach:
                  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.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  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!
