Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Originally British (recently an American Citizen!) I have been living in the San Francisco Bay Area as a permanent resident here since 2003. I am an Interior Designer and Home Stager by profession and have lived in Muir Beach since 2008. I believe this place to be among very few left in the world that are as unspoiled so close to nature and a major metropolis such as San Francisco. I find it deeply inspiring to call Muir Beach and it's wonderful community my home. As the daughter of a British Army Officer, initially I travelled extensively to other parts of the world following my father's career and then subsequently my own. I fell in love with the San Francisco Bay Area when I first visited here in 1997 and I was captivated by the beauty of Muir Beach particularly, fairly early on in my visits to San Francisco from London. I bought two cottages in Muir Beach in 2008: The Cottage At Muir Beach and Mole's Cottage named after my dearly beloved Labrador companion of 15 years and the characters in a book I grew up with entitled 'The Wind In The Willows.' Mole was a leading character in the novel by Kenneth Graham - always up to mischief and adventures on the river bank with friends. Since launching The Cottage At Muir Beach in 2009, I have delighted in sharing this little slice of heaven with my guests from all over the world. It is an exceptional privilege to find this place and I hope by now offering Mole's Cottage as an adjacent property, that I will be able fulfill on the many requests I've received over the years from guests who have stayed, to broadly expand the accommodation I offer. I have taken several years to develop beautiful succulent gardens at Mole's Cottage and lovingly renovated it's simple structure with imaginative ocean-inspired decorating that I trust will inspire.

Why the Owner Chose Muir Beach, CA, USA:
Charm and close to everything that inspires us all, is the only way to describe this place!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Hiking, beach combing and designing interiors inspired by nature.
