About this listing
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.
Our weekend was magical. My husband and I didn't want to leave! I haven't slept that well in years; Fallon asleep to the sound of the ocean. Misti was the perfect hostess and we can't wait to visit again! Thank you, Misti'
The place was great and the views are indeed amazing! We loved our time there and it was just steps from the beach. Hope to make it back sometime!
Misti greeted my sweet pup, Lola, and me when we arrived ... with a tour of the flat. Everything we would need was present ... and, I could hardly take it all in, since I kept getting pulled to take in the seriously magical views. I almost hesitate to state how wonderful this place is ... since I want it to be available any time I want to come:))). Every detail was attended to ... and, the simple elegance of the decor, just my style. There was nothing we could want ... but to sit back and soak in the beauty and peace. Rarely do I find a bed that is as comfy as my own at home ... but yes, this bed was PERFECT! To fall asleep to the sounds of the ocean ... and, awake to the calls of the Ospry ... DIVINE! Thank YOU Thank YOU Misti!!!
Such a wonderful view to wake up to! The house was beautiful and clean. It had everything we needed and Misti made sure we were ok. It's in a perfect position, overlooking Muir beach and close to the woods. Highly recommended! Thanks Misti!
The rental and location was awesome, with wonderful views of muir beach cove. We even saw dolphins 60 yards from the beach.

About the Host, Misti
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.
