Muir Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 1-6)

PRIVATE, PRIVATE, PRIVATE. While other rentals in the area have shared space with the owners, this is a single family residence which you can enjoy all to yourself.....

This newly renovated single family home is minutes to San Francisco and the ideal place to stay while visiting the Bay Area.

The house is very comfortable and really is just STEPS away from the beach and GREAT hiking/biking trails. There is a surf board, boogie board and 2 bikes available for you to use.

There are 2 queen beds and a full sized pull out sofa in the house, linens provided.

For those guests who are travelling with children a toddler mattress is available upon request. There is also a pack and play and a high chair on site as well as a variety of toys.

The outside offers a gas bar-b-que, ping pong table and plenty of areas to lounge.

There is complimentary coffee and teas as well as an ocassional box of brownie mix, just help yourself!

With the beach and miles of world class hiking/biking trails just steps from your front door there is no reason to go very far. The Pelican Inn, Zen Center, Slide Ranch and Muir Woods are all with in walking distance.

If you do want to explore it is only a 20 minute drive to the Golden Gate, 10 minutes to Stinson Beach, 40 minutes to Point Reyes and about an hour to wine country.

We are happy and excited to share any information about the area with you. Just let us know what you want to know and how we can make this the BEST stay for you.

We feel so lucky to be a part of this community and hope to share a bit of this paradise with you.

Come discover The Pearl of Muir Beach.....

Perfect place surrounded by beautiful drives!

  • 5 of 5

This year was my mother's 80th birthday. My gift to her was a trip with her 2 very adult children. Just my brother and myself. No grand kids, no daughter-in-law or son-in-law. Just my fantastic 80 year old mother, my 57 year old brother and me. My mom was overjoyed with the location and the time she got to spend with us. We went to Muir Woods (just a short 20 minute drive) and a few other hikes that were close by. The drive to Mill Valley was gorgeous and our first day we drove in for groceries, only to discover we ALL THREE had left the house without our wallets. No one minded, because it just meant that was got to drive the gorgeous road back to the house, then drive it again to Mill Valley, then home again. It was great!!

Internet connection was spotty but in all of our opinions, it didn't matter. The focus was on the vacation and each other. We did have movie night one night. Netflix worked perfectly.

The house was very spacious and nice and bright. All windows opened easily and since the weather was gorgeous we had lovely cross breezes when we were there. There are portable radiators that worked well to take the chill off at night. Linens, flatware and dishes were nice, too!

Loved this space very much!

Great hiking nearby

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here with our kids, ages 15 and 13.

House is easy to get to from downtown SF. It is clean and good size with big master and large bathroom, sitting area and kitchen.

Perfect location to explore Marin Headlands with trials starting right across the street at MuirBeach. Short drive to Muir Woods (go early) and Mt Tam. Also not far to Point Reyes which is worth the trip.

Only issue was broken clothes dryer.

Highly recommend if you want to hike and see Marim County.

Bright and clean.

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was enjoyable. The back porch and lovely flowers and plants provided privacy and fragrance of rosemary, sage, lavender.

WiFi and phone reception are limited. The front porch provides a view of the ocean and the sound of waves are heard. Worth the comfort of the privacy and no parking problems. Easy to get to San Francisco. Beautiful costal mountain drive.

Sweet beach cottage, amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

We rented "the Pearl" for a wedding stay and it was simply perfect. It's nice and spacious, and well appointed. The location is amazing, the decor is very charming - beachy yet sophisticated, unfussy and calming. Great for pre-wedding jitters! We got married at the Muir Beach community center right up the road, and came home after to a walk on the beach, a hike up the bluffs, and dinner at the Pelican Inn - all just steps away. The owners were friendly and accommodating. Would definitely rent again!
