Mostly Sweet, some Sour experience

  • 4 of 5

Me and my husband stayed for 3 nights in this rustic but cozy home. The best part about the stay was the clear view of the ocean from the balcony and the hot tub overlooking the beautiful blue waters.

However, we noticed that the house has 2 indoor cameras, one in the living room and the other in the bedroom facing outside. The cameras have microphones with recording feature per camera model specification and remote access which made us feel uncomfortable.

We conveyed this to Mr Sigward after returning from vacation and he explained that the cameras are installed for security reasons. He inquired from manufactured and informed that microphone was not activated. He also offered one day credit and promise to replace with outdoor cameras.

Overall relaxing and much needed vacation … Will come again, if the cameras are removed from inside house.

Owner's Response: Thank you for bringing this issue to my attention. I am sorry for your inconvenience and appreciate you taking the time to share your concerns. All feedback from my guests is very helpful and important to me, and since you brought this concern to my attention; I had both cameras removed. A break-in at my home in Austria motivated me to install a security system with perimeter cameras both in Austria and also in Muir Beach. I have never had an issue at Muir Beach, but as you can imagine, the break-in experience rattled me. I am truly sorry that the presence of my security system negatively affected your time at the beach. I understand now why it created anxiety. I have always respected the privacy of my guests and want to explain the purpose of the previous set up so that past and future rental guests can feel comfortable with this issue. When I first installed exterior cameras, the lenses became obscured by the salt water beach air and so moved them inside behind shades/curtains, facing the perimeter. Video of the interior space was not possible with the way it was set up. The audio function was never set up and could never have been recording without additional changes to the set up and system. I am sorry that it did not occur to me that a security system with outward facing cameras would be a source of concern for my guests. The comfort and enjoyment of my guests is of primary importance and I have always and will continue to respect the privacy of my guests. I am glad you enjoyed my home and the location and I do hope you will come back again now that the cameras have been removed. Warm regards, Sigward

Perfect spot to get away! Charming, comfortable, well maintained. A little hidden treasure!

  • 5 of 5

The best vacation decision ever for me! I rented the house for 9 nights, simply unforgettable! The home is simple, but has All the creature comforts. Loved the Sonos sound system, tuned into "laid back beach music radio" the entire time...Perfect! The view? Yes, the view!!! Going to sleep and waking up hearing the ocean waves. The moon rising over the mountain every night. The soft glow of San Fransisco at night and the star filled night sky made the time truly magical. The lovely walk up the mountain... The views from up top are just fantastic! Watching the dolphins and the surfers was so enjoyable!

Short trip to shop at the Whole Foods Market, and dinner at the quaint Pelican Inn was just a short walk.

The perfect place to just tune out the rest of the world.

Sigward responded to my e-mails quickly, he seems to have thought of everything.

I will definitely be looking forward to coming back!

Wonderful, relaxing, and (purposely) rustic ocean-side home

  • 5 of 5

This was simply a wonderful and relaxing place to spend some down-time and relax. The owner, Sigward, is an attentive and responsive host, and he's built a heavenly little abode here, right beside the ocean and beach. Given that it's Northern California, the water is a bit cold and there can often be fog. But, we like that and it makes the place feel even more serene. We will definitely be back. Thank you, Sigward.

Sublime views in a quaint setting...

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I could not have chosen a more perfect property to share a secluded week vacation. The quaint house served it's purpose well as we were surrounded by some of earth's many miracles. Between the jaw dropping, ocean view off the back deck, to the alluring hiking trails up the neighboring mountainous terrain, everything was as it should be..and then some. We were even blessed to see a pod of humback whales feeding in the cove one afternoon!

The nearby Pelican Inn restaurant/bar was also perfectly located and enjoyed often (short walk from the house.) Be sure to load up on groceries prior to the ascent up the winding, 15 minute drive up the terrain if you want home prepared food.

We shall return! Many thanks to the owner!
