“Stunning location, wonderful stay”
Reviewed 4 October 2012

Our stay at the Cottage at Muir Beach was wonderful. The location absolutely can't be beat - hearing the sound of the ocean as you fall asleep, after a glass of wine on the deck watching the sun set. Fantastic.

The cottage is decorated very nicely, well equipped with amenities (beach towels are a great touch), and was the perfect size for us. The linens were fresh and attractive, and the bed very comfortable. The cottage was very clean and well maintained.

Definitely lots to do in the area - many kilometers of hiking trails, scenic driving, Muir Woods, Mount Tam state park, great dining at the Pelican Inn, and good proximity to Mill Valley (but why would you leave Muir Beach?).

Of particular note, we found the process of booking, getting the keys, etc. very well organized and accurate. Victoria was a pleasure to deal with. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this beautiful spot.

My husband and I have been to many an enchanted place, but none as enchanting as the Cottage at Muir Beach. The cottage is exquisitely decorated in relaxing tones of green, perched on one of the most magical spots in the world. Muir Beach is visible in all its splendor from the charming porch, as well a s from the living room and the bedroom. You will be lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves crashing on the surf and wake up to the most beautiful pink tinged sunrise. The cottage is equipped with all the amenities you will need for maximum comfort. If your children come along, there is an adorable loft with two twin beds and plenty of toys to pass the time. The beach is a short walk away, through gorgeous vistas of the bay and shore. If you're at all inclined to leave the cottage, there are plenty of activities to do in the area. The Muir Woods are a short ride away, as is the charming town of Mill Valley. Stinson Beach and Point Reyes are wonderful small towns to explore and are only about an hour form Muir Beach. However, you won't want to stray too far from this beautiful spot and will probably want to return many a time.

This really is a hidden gem - and we live in the Bay Area ! This cottage is privately owned by a local interior designer so has that rare mix of class and comfort. The views are stunning and although we had plans to go places we ended up mostly at the beach, the Pelican Inn and enjoying the magnificent view.

Our five days at The Cottage at Muir Beach was relaxing, tranquil, and inspired by nature; this elegant cottage just north of San Francisco overlooks one of the most beautiful spots in the country. Every detail was thoughtfully provided by our wonderful hostess, Victoria. We enjoyed lazy mornings and quiet sunsets from our balcony above the sea, and found good restaurants and fun at nearby Stinson Beach. Driving alongside cyclists navigating the twists and turns on mountain roads through Mt Tamalpais State Park and the very scenic drive north on CA Hwy 1, we discovered breathtaking panoramic views in this part of northern California. We did not want to leave this magical place.
