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 my Grandparents house for 60 years. My Dad and I bought out his siblings about ten years ago and I currently live upstairs. I have worked in the solar industry for the past 16 years.

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.

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!

Amazing View and Misti is GREAT!

  • 4 of 5

The view is just beautiful and Misti is probably the best hostess I've ever rented from. She is incredibly supportive and responds immediately. Although the place is not the most up-to-date, it is very comfortable and I would definitely stay there again.

Beautiful view, but poor quality place

  • 1 of 5

The view from this cottage is spectacular, but the place itself leaves a lot to be desired. The unit has not been well maintained - the paint is chipping everywhere, and hardware on the window coverings and cabinets are falling off. We enjoyed the great access to the beach, but otherwise wouldn't recommend this place.

View view view

  • 5 of 5

Wow!!! There isnt even words to discribe the beautiful view. My husband and I were looking for a quite getaway and we definitely found it. Misti is a great host and even though she lives upstairs, she was very respectful to our privacy. Her dog Wesley and cat made us feel like we were at home. The stairs are a challenge for some people, but well worth it and the beach is a staircase away. I sat outside every morning and watch the sunrise. It was amazing. A lot of reviews comment on no oven. There is a oven, it's just not a built in. It's a counter top one and it works for us just fine and there is also a BBQ.

The only down side I would say is the shower. Little challenging for tall people. But we made it work just fine. Also would recommend a small microwave.

We will definitely come back and can't wait to do so.

Thank you Misti for the wonderful stay 😊

Best Bay Area Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This place was a perfect getaway for us. It's only an hour from where we lived but felt like worlds away - a little paradise overlooking the ocean. Well-stocked kitchen, gas grill, nice bed with the most amazing view. We will be back!
