Why Victoria chose Muir Beach

A charming beach community (the closest beach to the Golden Gate Bridge) and within easy reach of everything that inspires us all.

What makes this Cottage unique

Breathtaking views and sound of the surf. Beautiful interior, deck and stunning succulent gardens. Attention to detail, stylishly comfortable and clean. Close proximity to the sea, local towns, Muir Woods and San Francisco. Outstanding local hikes and points of interest.


Originally British, (I became an American Citizen in 2014) and I have been living in the San Francisco Bay Area as a permanent resident since 2003. I am an Interior Designer and Home Stager by profession and own and run my own company.

“I believe Muir Beach to be among very few areas left in the world,
that remain unspoiled,
rural and charming.”

Close to nature in the heart of The Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Muir Woods and a major metropolis such as San Francisco. You can see San Francisco's South Bay from both cottages.

“Just being in this magical location,
forces me to take a much needed breath and unwind from
life's hectic pace.”

I trust it will have the same effect on you! I find it deeply inspiring to call Muir Beach and it's wonderful community, my home.

As the daughter of a British Army Officer, initially I traveled extensively to other parts of the world following my father's career and then subsequently my own. I fell in love with the San Francisco Bay Area when I first visited here in 1997 and I was captivated by the beauty of Muir Beach particularly, fairly early on in my visits to San Francisco from London.

I bought two cottages in Muir Beach in 2008: The Cottage At Muir Beach and Mole's Cottage named after my beloved Labrador companion of 15 years and the characters in a book I grew up with entitled 'The Wind In The Willows.'

“I have delighted in sharing this little slice of heaven with my guests from all over the world.”

It is an exceptional privilege to find this place and by offering Mole's Cottage as an adjacent property to The Cottage at Muir Beach, I am now able to fulfill the many requests I've received over the years from guests who have stayed, to expand the accommodation I offer.

I have taken several years to develop both properties and beautiful succulent gardens at Mole's Cottage and lovingly renovated it's simple structure with imaginative ocean-inspired decorating that I trust will inspire.
