VIEW, VIEW, VIEW!
Could be one of the best in the world and the view from the high bed looking out the large window (s) onto the beach is beyond fantastic and a great way to start the day. The sound of the waves is calming and relaxing, perfect!
Magical Muir Beach Getaway
Just steps from the beach.
VIEW, VIEW, VIEW!
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!

If the previous guest leave parishables items behind and intact (unopened items or fruit / veggies) I will leave for the next guest, so hope the next guest enjoys the goddies others could not transport.
I look forward to all improvement suggestions and hope all guest are happy and comfortable.
The view is seriously fantastic, the photos really don't do justice, could be the sound of the waves, or waking up to the birds and the view of the sunrise on the water, but many of the guests have commented on having the best sleep of their life.
I try to keep this special place affordable during these tough economic times, other rentals in the community cost double (and they want me to increase my cost), so far all the guest have been wonderful and I hope the trend continues!
There is a path with stairs from the road up to the unit the path is sandstone with stairs (about 20 stairs combined with flat areas) the path meanders up to the unit and to the view.
First off Misti is a very cool person! And secondly what a view! We needed a night away from SF to collect our thoughts and recharge our batteries and found Misti's listing. Her spot is an amazing way to experience Muir Beach - from the little hidden beach in front of her house to the amazing cliff walk behind it! (A MUST SEE). The super tall bed was brilliant to lay in and watch the bay, the kitchen was quant, and the fixtures were all adequate. The only issue we had is that this apartment is essentially an in-law unit, and we could hear Misti and her fun dog walking and moving about above. This took away from the amazing sounds of the surf outside. All in all it is a wonderful place to really see an amazing view of Muir Beach.
Our plans for a weekend hike were somewhat dampened by the downpour, but even so the house was a beautiful, cozy place to wait out the storm. Misti was an excellent host who was prompt, easy to reach and provided us with all the information we needed.
This place is so awesome. Misti is incredibly kind and generous, the view is epic, the bed is super comfy, it's a quick walk to The Pelican Inn for dining, it's right on the beach, and there's another room, big bathroom and a kitchen, that make the place spacious.
What a wonderful stay. The location really is magical. Misti's home is clean, comfy and perfectly located to get a beautiful view of Muir Beach. The beach is easily accessible through several paths/stairways leading down. Its also a short drive to Muir Woods for those who want to hike through the Redwoods.
Misti was a wonderful host even driving out to us and calling AAA when we had car troubles - thanks again - you were a savior! Anyway i would highly recommend to anyone looking for a truly relaxing getaway.
What a paradise! You can't find a better place to watch the sunset or wake to the sunrise. And Misti has made it so comfortable. I definitely want to come back as I only had one night. Slept great and had everything I needed for my short time. Plus, Misti is very accommodating. Highly recommend.
The view and the surroundings were fantastic. Oceanview from every window in the apartment and the beach was just down the hill. If you like to walk, run or bicycle then this is heaven. The apartment was equipped with everything you need like wifi, dishwasher, washing machine etc. You live on the countryside but within 20 minutes you are in downtown San Francisco. Misti was the perfect host, and we cannot thank her enough, for everything she did for us. We had a great stay in Muir Beach and we would chose it again if we ever go back to California.
Everything was wonderful, just as Misti described it. We felt welcome immediately.

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.
