Magical Muir Beach Getaway
Just steps from the beach.


Every guest has commented on how the view is even better in real life and how they have had the best sleep in years! Could be the sound of the waves, or view of the sunrise on the water upon awakening and because the property consists of 2 acres of bird and animal life, the singing birds are a daily alarm clock. One thing is for sure the view and location is amazing amazing!

A guest mentioned recently the reason he thought the view was strikingly unusual from the unit because you can see the back of the wave as well as the front, so from the unit not only is the view the length of the beach and the coastline stretching to SF (including views of SF) but what's really remarkable is you see the back of the wave as it forms and the front as it crashes, it's a very unique view point. And to see the SF lights at night is fantastic!

Walk to the beach, world famous Zen center, bike and hike on Mt Tam!
Muir Woods is two miles away and San Francisco is a 30 minute drive.

From the bedroom and tiled outdoor sitting area view San Francisco and the SF lights at night. View the beach and ocean from every room. Fall asleep to the sound of the ocean waves!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This place is absolutely outstanding. I really fell in love with it. The beach view is fantastic and the entire place is embraced by the sunlight and sound from ocean waves. Superb.

    It's located super close to the beach and the best lookout point of coastal california. Also, it's close to muir woods and the giant redwood trees.

    Misti is an excellent host. She was really helpful with advice on the neighbourhood. We had a lovely lunch at Pelican Inn thanks to her.

  • Misti Norton's place at Muir Beach, CA provided an awesome experience for my wife and I on our visit to the SF bay area. The views are priceless. Great opportunity for quiet beach time as well as great hiking and wildlife viewing. We also met several friendly neighbors.

    The location also provided quick access to SF just to the south and Sonoma / Napa to the north. We we will always remember our visit, and hope to return some day!

  • Great, great place-quite large for two people. Beautiful views. The pictures do not do justice. Great place for people that love to hike and enjoy the outdoors. Great access to Muir Beach and close to Muir Woods/Mt. Tam.

    The kitchen was great to cook in and again, the views are amazing.

  • This is a wonderful remote beach getaway so close to SF. The view of ocean, beach, and cityscape is amazing. It feels like your own little apartment on the ground floor of Misti's home. She was a lovely accommodating host. After check-in, I never saw her. The ceilings are a little low, so very tall people might be challenged. I loved having the steps down to the private side of muir beach just a few feet away. There are no stores or good restaurants close by, so bring your own food. If not, be prepared to drive up the coast to Stinson or back to Mill Valley for groceries or good restaurants. Highly recommend it!

  • Misti was extremely welcoming and she did us a huge favor by letting my girlfriend and I stay just one evening here. To be honest, I wish we'd booked for the full three day weekend, because this place is very cozy, well-kept, and the location is to die for. Seriously, the photos do not do the view justice!

  • Misti's downstairs apartment was perfect. The view were priceless, her communication was top notch, and the location was epic. The neighborhood her home is situated in is one of those places where you feel like you're stepping back in time and life slows down. There are many little touches and thoughtful pieces throughout the home. It's the perfect getaway for getting away from the hustle and bustle. I highly recommend the location and Misti as a host.

    January 2014
  • Thank you Misti for sharing your beautiful home with us! The view from the listing is breathtaking and you can hear the sound of the waves as you go to sleep. The kitchen is fully equipped. It's a short walk to the beach and hiking trails. I would definitely recommend staying at Misti's place for an unforgettable Airbnb experience!

    January 2014
  • We had a perfect stay at Misti's place. It was peaceful and simple and just what we were hoping for. The view from the bedroom was just breathtaking, at any time of day. Hearing the ocean when falling asleep and waking up was divine. The apartment was well-equipped and cosy for two. The small road to get to the apartment is certainly challenging, but not a big deal. We would recommend this to anyone wanting to experience the San Francisco area without being directly in the city. We enjoyed the short drive into the city across the Golden Gate Bridge too.

  • We had a wonderful, relaxing weekend at Misti's beach house. The views are spectacular and the house has everything you could need to make it feel like home (towels in the bathroom, spices in the kitchen, board games and even a kite!) Checking in and out was very convenient. We checked in late on a Friday night, and Misti was thoughtful enough to leave space heaters on so the house was nice and toasty when we arrived. If you're looking for a romantic, relaxing weekend by the beach, this place is perfect.

    December 2013
  • Great host and really enjoyed our stay. Views from every room were awesome and loved the historic charm of the place. So much to do in the area too just wish we had more time!

I’m a native of the area raised in Marin and Sonoma counties, the home is where my Dad was raised and where my Grandparents lived for 60 years. My Dad and I bought out his siblings about five years ago and I currently live in the upstairs. I have worked in the solar industry for the past 11 years and yes there is a PV solar system on the house. The house is very special to my family and me, not only because of the memories and history but it is truly magical here.
