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.
This was such a delightful and gentle space to nestle into with my partner.
It was perfectly placed near the shore with a view and soundscape that could lull any and all stress away.
Misti was very kind and responsive and we left feeling recharged and satisfied to our fullest expectation.
We will surely be back.
Thank you Misti :)
Misti is a natural hostess. She is attuned to the guests' situation and responds accordingly. The place is exactly as other guests have described and it is a privilege and a pleasure to experience it.
I wish I could say that this fantastic experience at Misti's apt was not the best experiences of my life ( and thereby keep this wonderful vacation spot for myself) but the truth is The apartment, the view and Misty were perfect in every way . I'll be back here as soon as I can. It's truly a Magical place, the view and the sounds of the serf as well as the small private beach heal the body and the soul. I know this was my experience. THANK YOU MISTI
One of the best views in all of Northern California. For real! You got the ocean view, the beach view, the big rocks in the ocean view, western SF view, truly spectacular! You can hear the waves pounding away as you fall asleep, so awesome. The property is positioned in a way that there are no neighbors, so there are no homes obstructing this insane view. Totally private. We loved our stay here. You will too.
It truly is an exquisite view! The space itself could use a bit of a facelift, but what it lacks in glamour it more than makes up for in location, scenery, and a kind, accommodating host. Direct access to a private beach is also a major plus!
Three nights in one of the quietest, most beautiful places on Earth. The AirBnb pictures are accurate, but fail to include the glorious sounds of crashing waves you can hear from the room! Amazing. The neighborhood is full of super friendly people you'll meet on walks. You'll want to win the Lotto and move in. My husband and I live 45 minutes away in Oakland, and love spending as much time as possible at the ocean's edge. I stumbled upon this place on AirBnb, it looked great, and we were blown away to get here in just 45 minutes. So, for those of you who, like us, live in the SF Bay Area and want a get-away on the coast, this is SO much closer than Bodega Bay, Mendocino, the Lost Coast, Big Sur, even Point Reyes and Inverness, but it feels like it's a world away from the crazy busy Bay Area. The road this house is on is narrow and almost country-like, and the stairs up to the house could be tough on people with sore knees, but it's worth getting here whatever way you can. You'll hear the scampering of doggie feet above your head because Misti has an adorable pooch named Wesley that our dog fell in love with. There are a couple funky things about this place (a weirdly placed step in the bathroom that we tripped on, a door knob that needs repair, etc.), so if you want a four-star hotel, this ain't your place. But you'll never find a quieter host, and here it feels like we're staying with a friend in her private apartment with what might be the absolute best view in Muir Beach. We walked all around, up and down all the easement steps that lead to the beach, or up to the outlook ridge. This place of Misti's is a truly magical setting. You can see the beach and hillside community, and in the other direction (out to sea) San Francisco and the Bonita Lighthouse. Walk down to the beach, then on to the Zen Meditation Center / Green Gulch Farms (and Buddhist monestary) for a quiet stroll amidst silence and wonder. Their Welcome Center has amazing books on Buddhism for newbies, Japanese tea sets, etc. Come back to the room to meditate, have tea, and listen to the wonder of the Pacific Ocean's waves crashing below. You'll go home feeling like an entirely new person. Thanks to Misti for sharing her home with the (website hidden) Climb up on the tall bed with a book & cup of cocoa, stare out at the ocean, listen to Wesley scampering about, and you'll never want to leave. No, seriously. You'll never want to leave. We don't. But we'll be back, and soon! Thank you Misti!
We had a wonderful getaway at Misti's home. Superb views , would highly recommend. She was very helpful when needed. It truly is magical

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.
