The Cottage at Muir Beach

Nestled above Muir Beach overlooking the ocean, the headlands and San Francisco in the distance, you’ll find The Cottage at Muir Beach – a stylish getaway ideal for those looking to relax and unwind in the peace and tranquility of glorious ocean and mountain views.

This magical and enchanting rural escape features a queen master bedroom with ocean views, attic/loft sleeping area with 2 twin beds. Please note that the loft space is not full head height so is best suited to children. Adults willing to be more flexible have also made use of this extra sleeping room while staying. There is also a built-in sectional sofa in the living area with extra bedding in the roll out drawers below. Also included: a charming living / dining area, kitchen, and bathroom. Private deck and parking for 2 cars.

The Cottage at Muir Beach is located in the heart of Marin County’s stunning Golden Gate National Recreation Area providing fabulous opportunities for outdoor pursuits. 

The Cottage At Muir Beach is situated next door to Mole's Cottage separated by a private and inspiring succulent garden. The location of both these cottages not only provides privacy for those seeking a private retreat, they also cater to families and friends who wish to book two properties in reasonably close proximity so they can vacation in the same spectacular location if required.

The Cottage at Muir Beach is enveloped by the constant therapeutic sound of the ocean and is the kind of heaven on earth that soothes the soul. Although it is within easy reach of everything, it feels like a world apart. Owned, operated and decorated by renowned British interior designer Victoria Hamilton-Rivers.
