“Not enough stars to review this property!”

Ellyn T, Georgia
“Please don't miss this review or you might miss your favorite vacation of all time. This may seem strange to read as you look at locations for your coastal visit, but I would plan my future vacation dates around the availability of this listing! I am not just saying this as one satisfied traveler. Once in the house you can flip through the guestbook and see that everyone plans to come back. So much of a vacation is where you are going, but in the case of "Mole Cottage", the place you are staying may become your favorite part of the trip. This is 5 star all the way! In a word “relaxation” in conclusion – “Just go!”

“Absolutely breath-taking”

Bob G, San Francisco
“Unbelievable that such an amazing view exists so close to one of the World's greatest cities, and you get all of it from The Cottage at Muir Beach. For anyone looking for peaceful seclusion in an environment of timeless luxury, this is the place.”

“Beautiful Coastal Cottage!”

Lori W, Pennsylvania 
 “We loved staying in Victoria’s cottage – it is beautifully decorated and in an amazing location! With Mole’s Cottage as our home, we explored San Francisco, Muir Woods and Point Reyes as well as enjoying Muir Beach and some hiking right from the house. It is a wonderful property that feels like a retreat. Absolutely wonderful and the gardens are amazing!“


Nigel & Lizzie P, South Africa
“Impossible to describe - what a gem! The magical time we spent at The Cottage At Muir Beach will be etched in our memories forever. So great to discover "home" so far from ours. We will most certainly return to this special place by the sea.
Thank You!"


Elizabeth S, Iowa
”I cannot say enough positive things about this rental. The view is stunning and the inside of the home is immaculate - decorated beautifully. We had two couples staying at Mole’s Cottage - which provided more than enough room for us. It was comfortable with the living space - kitchen - washing machines. The outdoor areas are wonderful and add a huge dynamic to the house. There are private outside areas off of both bedrooms - providing plenty of space for solitude, if desired.”

“C’est magnifique!”

David R, France
“For those of us who live life at full tilt, The Cottage At Muir Beach is the perfect place to pause, reflect and unwind. We can't wait to return to your charming cottage Victoria, it is the most perfect retreat: our special place!"

“A perfect time…”

Carol and Dick O, Tahoe
“An early morning walk on the beach, a stroll through the redwood grandeur of Muir Woods, a nap soothed by the sound of the surf below, waking up to the changing light on the Pacific Ocean, a glass of champagne on the deck watching the sunset and the lights of San Francisco appear on the far off skyline. Utter perfection!"


David P, Canada
“From the second we drove up the drive way we knew that we were in for a special treat. The property was outstanding - an absolute treasure. Everything exceeded all expectations, inclusive of the layout, views, supplied materials, location as well as the recommendations made by the owner.”

"In a word, WOW!”

Jonathan M, San Anselmo
“Barely 15 minutes out of town one finds the extraordinarily comfortable, exquisitely decorated, and sumptuously designed Cottage at Muir Beach with boundless views and the endless comfort of the ocean below. Without question I know I will be back as much as possible, for the supreme sense of tranquility and calm I felt upon leaving is a gift I never anticipated but always welcome into my hectic, non-stop life. Thank you Victoria. I can still hear the waves even weeks later."

“The perfect place to spend your time”

Dame family, Switzerland
“The place is extraordinary, the views stunning and the cottage in a flawless state. It was our second time to stay at the cottage and once again it was the perfect experience. The cottage is clean, the kitchen well equipped and you find lots of recommendations about the region. There is nothing that could be improved or changed!”

“…magical, tranquil, gorgeous…”

Sean and David M, Russian River
“I wish we could have stayed longer! Just the place we needed to re-energize ourselves. You did such a beautiful job restoring the property - your attention to detail is amazing. Thank you, thank you.”

“A Tranquil and inspiring place”

Donella G, England 
“This cottage is beautiful. It has wonderful views from every window which are reflected in the mirrors inside the property and out in the garden. We have stayed in a lot of lovely properties in the U.S over the years and both agree this is the best ever! We particularly loved the succulent gardens which are incredible in their size and variety (the humming birds certainly seem to like them). The views over the beach are stunning. If you decide to stay at this cottage you will not be disappointed and will probably never want to leave.”

“Incredibly peaceful, relaxing, soothing”

Teta & George C, Hawaii
“…I adore being able to hear the sound of the waves, understated yet so stylish, with spectacular inspiring view... it's just the best!”


Jonathan W, Canada
“This little spot on the California coast has stolen our hearts. It is decorated beautifully, and the upgrades that have been undertaken over the past year are stunning. The addition of a second queen bedroom and en suite bathroom now make the cottage very suitable for two couples to stay very comfortably, and the new dining room overlooking the beach and San Francisco make every meal special. The decor in the new bedroom is lovely, and the coastal chart on the ceiling is a really ingenious touch. Thanks again to Victoria for providing an absolutely gorgeous 'get away from it all' place that is outfitted with style and luxury in mind.”

“Perfect Place”

Laurie L, Michigan
“We had a great stay, and found this place to be everything advertised and more. The kitchen was very well-equipped, and the gardens and patios are so beautiful. This place has outstanding access to Muir Beach and the surrounding area. A picture from the front garden is currently displayed on my desktop background - a reminder of a scene that allowed us to take a breath and take in all of the sights. Our host, Victoria was easy to work with for the booking. We will most definitely return!”

“A magical experience!”

Hugh Mc, Scotland
“What a rare luxury it is to find such tranquility, where you can really relax and unwind, and believe you’ve travelled half a world away, and you’re only 10 minutes away by car from Mill Valley.”

“The cottage itself exudes warmth, charm and style”

Mick & Chantal G, Ireland
“The furnishings and decor are as inviting as they are sophisticated. From Big Sur to the Mendocino Coast, The Cottage at Muir Beach should be tops on anyone's list.”
