About Victoria Hamilton-Rivers
Originally British, (I became an American Citizen in 2014) and I have been living in the San Francisco Bay Area as a permanent resident since 2003. I am an Interior Designer and Home Stager by profession and own and run my own company. I believe Muir Beach to be among very few areas left in the world, that remain unspoiled, rural and charming. Close to nature in the heart of The Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Muir Woods and a major metropolis such as San Francisco. You can see San Francisco's South Bay from both cottages. Just being in this magical location, forces me to take a much needed breath and unwind from life's hectic pace. I trust it will have the same effect on you! 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 beloved Labrador companion of 15 years and the characters in a book I grew up with entitled 'The Wind In The Willows.' 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 expand the accommodation I offer. I have taken several years to develop the property and beautiful succulent gardens at Mole's Cottage and lovingly renovated it's simple structure with imaginative ocean-inspired decorating that I trust will inspire
Victoria Hamilton-Rivers purchased this Cottage in 2008

A little piece of paradise
Mole’s cottage exceeded our expectations. The moment I walked into the beautifully decorated cottage, I felt a sense of peace. The ocean views from the windows, the deck, and the garden were spectacular. The attention to detail inside and outside the cottage was exquisite.
The cottage was within an easy walking distance to Muir Beach and Little Beach. We took early morning walks to the beach while both beaches were almost empty. The ocean life we saw in the tide pools and rocks on Little Beach were amazing. Every evening I enjoyed sitting on the lounge chairs reading and watching the beautiful sunset.
Victoria was wonderful and answered any questions we had. She’s created a little piece of paradise at Mole’s Cottage. I wish we could have stayed longer.
Our stay at Mole’s Cottage could not have been better! Everything about the cottage was absolutely perfect. Victoria was a wonderful host as well, checking in to make sure we had everything we needed.
The Mole Cottage exceeded my expectation. I felt like I was in paradise and the place was so beautiful and had so many details on making this such a remarkable trip
A week in paradise!
I booked Mole's Cottage for my wife's 40th birthday, our first trip without kids! All I can say is WOW! Victoria has done an exceptional job both with the interior of the cottage and the exterior garden. Views from the living and bedroom are breath taking and our stay was very peaceful and the cottage is fully stocked with all the kitchen supplies you could possibly require. The beach is only a short walk away and Muir Woods is a 10 minute drive and worth it to see the giant redwoods.
Beautiful, fantastic, awesome.
This property was above and beyond amazing. I would recommend Mole’s Cottage whole heartedly. The views are fantastic and the accommodations first rate. Victoria, you have a gem!!!! Brenda and Mike Laing (Canadians) and Dianne and Steve Campbell(Australians).
