Amazing view & great access to the many trails.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful four days - filled with amazing views and awesome hikes. The beach house allows guest to watch the action (so many happy dogs) on the beach from a lofty quiet perch. Being so close to lots of trails allowed us to take in even more amazing views of the coast and even a peak at one of the Golden Gate's towers. All in all just a fantastic vacation that was very relaxing & easy to do. Oh, and the house was great too!

Perfect One of a Kind Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This place is incredible. From our initial interactions with Sigward to the moment of our departure – everything was 5 star. We arrived on a blustery day and were pleasantly surprised at the location. The pictures were just a foregleam of the true magnificence of this dream home. It’s not too far off the beaten path however secluded enough to offer the privacy we were seeking. Access was easy – we didn’t have to meet anyone so we could arrive at whatever time we wanted. We just opened the lock box, grabbed the key and we were in! First thing we did was walk out onto the front deck and breathed in a panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean and also the beach below. We then inspected the premises and it was just as described (really better). Everything we needed was right at our fingertips – from cooking utensils to internet access. The bedroom was cozy and had access to the front deck (we left the door open so that we could listen to the ocean waves lull us to sleep). The kitchen was amazing – we cooked dinner one night and enjoyed a couple of nice steaks that we grilled in the fully equipped kitchen. We didn’t use the hot tub however we opened the lid and the water was warm and ready to go. Incidentally the hot tub is in an ideal spot – you can sit inside it (perhaps enjoying some wine) and take in the beautiful scenery all around. We took a nice walk down to the beach (which was easily accessible) and enjoyed a nice hike on an easily accessible trail nearby. When we had a few questions, we emailed Sigward and his response time was lighting fast. I could go on and on but the gist is this: you have to rent this place! You will be glad you did and I guarantee it will be a mainstay getaway spot for you for years to come!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Doesn't get any better in terms of being remote, but close to San Francisco and cute towns. The beach is wonderful and the owner very responsive. We will be back.

Perfect beach escape!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this beach house for a belated honeymoon and we could not have been more thrilled. It is a small, unassuming spot with a million-dollar-view of Muir Beach and the constant sound of waves crashing along the shore. If you want a fancy, 5-star hotel feel, this might not be the place for you. But for us, it was absolute heaven! We did a good bit of traveling into San Francisco, Mill Valley (the nearest town just about a 15 min drive - very cute town! Lots of shopping and eateries), Muir Woods (just 10 min away), and even into Napa Valley. While at the cabin, we got to enjoy the stunning views from the balcony, and even cooked our own breakfast a few times in the fully functioning kitchen. This spot is absolutely perfect for a romantic or just plain relaxing getaway!

The first night we were here the hot tub was not heating properly, but Sigward was extremely responsive and we were able to enjoy it by the second night.

I would HIGHLY recommend this little piece of heaven to anyone looking for a sweet beach retreat!

Simply put- two words- amazing views

  • 5 of 5

If you want to get away from it all- hike off some calories from enjoying the wine country, This is your perfect stop before returning home... pictures cannot replicate the views from this charming beach retreat with access to world class hiking, birdwatching and so much more... When I got home and showed my friends and family pictures of the sunrise and sunset, they all wanted their own experience at this amazing retreat... The neighbors are friendly and you can walk to the end of the street and grab a delicious meal at the Pelican Inn- I would recommend to all!

Blissfully Amazing Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I could not have stayed at a more perfect place for our honeymoon. The serene landscapes, soothing ocean soundscapes, and magnificent views all tied together to make such a wonderful experience for us. Sigward's home had everything we needed for an escape from our busy lives. It allowed us to slow down and be present and mindful. Sigward was also more than helpful in accommodating us for our week long stay and was easy to get in touch. Overall, great home that we plan on returning to in the future.
