Environs and Activities
The community of Muir Beach is Stinson Beach's smaller and more accessible cousin. It is 30 minutes away from cosmopolitan San Francisco with its museums, shopping, restaurants and entertainment. It is 15 -20 minutes away from charming Mill Valley or popular tourist destination Sausalito and just 8 minutes away from Muir Woods National Monument.
Muir Beach is a perfect base from which to make day trips north to the coastal towns of Tomales, Point Reyes Station, Stinson Beach, Bolinas, Inverness or Olema; venture north east to the wine country estates of Sonoma or Napa counties, or south or east to other destinations in Marin or the East Bay communities of Berkeley and Oakland.
Visitors to Muir beach enjoy the area for its natural beauty, sweeping views, peace and tranquility and outdoor adventure. While this home does not have ocean views, a 2 minute walk over the hill provides a breathtaking view of the Pacific, the rocky coast and San Francisco in the distance. Trails take visitors down to the beach in minutes or up the coastal trail to hiking destinations in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Mount Tamalpais State Park or Muir Woods. Muir Beach surrounded by natural beauty on all sides.
Favorite north coast activities include: hiking, biking, rock climbing, horseback riding, beach combing, surfing, fishing, boating, kayaking, bird watching, seasonal whale and raptor migration observing, day tripping, city and town cultural events including ballet, symphony, night clubs, live theatre, cinemas, art galleries and museums, health spas, meditation retreats, antiquing, shopping and special events including film festivals, rock, folk and blues concerts and shows, and athletic events.
Pets are not allowed at Mountain House at Muir Beach. Because of the highly flammable wooded and grassland environment, barbecuing is not allowed.
There is a gas Yotil stove in the Master bedroom suite (operated easily with a remote), but the rest of the home has central heating. Operation of the wood stove in the living room is prohibited and can be used only in the event of a multiple day community-wide power outage. Fuel stored on site is for emergency use only.
The community of Muir Beach has no sewer hook up and homes here use septic systems. Because of this there is a maximum (no exceptions) of 6 overnight guests in this vacation home. Daytime visitors up to 12 are allowed..
Because of the septic system renters are advised that no solids other than human waste may be flushed (tampons, pads, diapers, wipes or other.) Harsh cleaning products or personal hygiene products are also prohibited. These include antibacterials, strong soaps, bleach and Irish Spring and strong deodorant products.
Renters and guests may use the telephone supplied in the home for local or emergency calls only and are requested not to order pay per view programs.
The home is owned by a family trust and managed by the trustee. Our values are love of the outdoors and the natural world and a desire to share this world with friends and family. This is why we settled in beautiful Marin County.
We are pleased to offer this rental home to our VRBO guests and we know that visitors will find active adventure, opportunities to experience the outdoors or treasure moments of peaceful contemplation.
Lise Stampfli Torme purchased this house in 2014
Stunning views, privacy, comfort — a peaceful tranquil retreat with easy access to trails, hiking, the seashore and coastal attractions.
Stayed 3 nights.
Lovely home, beautifully presented,clean.
Everything as advertised. Coyotes yipping on the opposite mtn...gorgeous!
Spa perfect for a wind down!
The property was exactly as advertised with beautiful views and proximity to Muir Beach and other natural attractions.
Lise was quite helpful helping us figuring out some places to visit as it was our first time.
The property was quite well maintained and everything functioned as it should.
The hot-tub was a great place to watch the stars as their was very little light pollution and the giant windows and decks gave great vistas during the day.
We will be coming back.
This is such an amazing getaway! The house is beautiful, comfortable, and well stocked (hint: check the house out before going shopping; a lot of basics were provided!). The hot tub was an amazing way to end each of our days while in the area. We made the easy 25 minute drive into the city almost every day. Muir Woods was a quick drive away. We went at 8am on a weekday, and were some of the first ones there - no crowds and easy parking. The only problem we had was that once we came home mid-afternoon to "rest" for a bit, we never made it back out as the view from the deck and house were enough to keep us happy for the remainder of each day!! We had planned a 5 night stay, but due to some confusion with the airline, we realized at the last minute that we needed to extend our stay by one night. Lise worked with us (based on her rental calendar, of course), to help make the extra night happen. Beautiful, just beautiful!!
Great location, great accommodation. Arrived in the evening and was delighted with the property, awakening in the morning excelled all expectations - views are spectacular. Would definitely come back if ever visiting from the UK again
Loved this spot. It was the perfect quick getaway for my fiance's 40th birthday weekend. Had a few friends over and enjoyed the gorgeous view on the wrap around balcony and hot tub. Went for a hike during the day on Mount Tam. Definitely hope to be back again soon!
We rented this beautiful home to spend Thanksgiving with two of our sons.
The home was beautiful and comfortable. The views are amazing and the area is filled with things to do and see. We were able to take day trips easily.
The owners made it so simple for us to celebrate the holiday. The kitchen is well set up and we were able to prepare and enjoy our meals with minimal fuss. Everything was well thought out and well maintained. The welcome was great!
We were comfortable and felt at ease. There were comfortable furnishings and beds, a HOT tub and endless birds to watch.
Thanks for a great stay.
We enjoyed visiting San Francisco, Point Reyes, Mount Tamalpais. Enjoyed dinner in Mill Valley at Piazza D'Angelo, It' Italia in Half Moon Bay. The lunch at D'Arcangeli in San Gregoria was fabulous! Garlic herb artichoke bread. We also visited Heidrun Meadery: Champagne style mead. We did a lot of hiking and family time.
Muir Woods is 10 minutes away by car. Muir Beach is a walk down the hillside. Stinson beach is located 20 minutes away.
