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.....

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!

Perfect! Wish we had more time there!

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy with our stay at Muir Beach's Pearl! It was perfect for what we wanted. It was immaculately clean (which is always at the top of my list)! It was updated, open and spacious more than I thought it may be, totally uncluttered which allows for a peaceful stay. It had a quaint homey feel, and we loved the location! Muir beach, just right there, is beautiful! I wish I would have brought firewood for a fire on the beach. We also wished we would have had more time there, which just wasn't in our plans. My personal favorite was the hiking into the hills just right there also. The views from the hiking trails were awe eliciting with panoramic views of the ocean, bays, hills, skyline and sunset! It was the perfect ending to the vacation! Also the drive into san francisco was pleasant and not too long, about 30-40 minutes. The backroads to muir woods was quick and beautiful.

We would stay here again if we were going back to the area, and would stay for the whole vacation!

Thanks for sharing such a perfect place to stay!

Lovely home that was just perfect for our needs.

  • 5 of 5

My son's wedding was at the Pelican Inn and this house was just a bit down the road and easily assessable for the entire wedding party. We had the house for 3 nights and used it for my family's home base. The kitchen is large with plenty of workspace. Due to food allergies we could not have the bride eating anything that we did not prepare ourselves so we used the great kitchen and the outdoor grill to prepare the rehearsal dinner for about 16 people. Parties are not allowed at the house but we did serve a wonderful dinner that was safe for all. The work island was a blessing for both prep and serving and there was plenty of room in the kitchen/dining area for all. We only had 4 people sleeping in the house but it does sleep 6 and the bathroom is huge. Only one closet but plenty of dresser drawers and the bedrooms are of good size with queen beds and nice linens. There are also heaters in the bedrooms and the living area that chase the early spring night chill away. Lots of windows to open for fresh ocean breeze and the water is only 2 blocks or less away and can be seen from a few of the windows. The house received many compliments.

I have no problem recommending the house to future renters. Plenty of parking with the side driveway and 2 spots in front, easy beach access, walking distance of the Pelican Inn, enormous bath towels, set of pots, skillets, coffee maker (use the big one), really nice washer and dryer, microwave, TV with Netflix, Hulu using your own accounts, outdoor grill and furniture (no cushions), loungers and picnic table. I did not look in the garage for the bikes and water equipment but have no doubt they are there.

Phone service for cell is nonexistent. Wifi is iffy with the best place to connect in the kitchen close to the password. Very clean. one warning about the air freshener. Strong so if you have breathing problems as I do , get some windows open. And the blinds are a bit difficult to lower. That is all I can possibly complain about, my weak lungs and weak wrists. Honestly, this house has it covered with location and amenities. The photos are accurate.

Muir Woods is a short drive away and the beach is just down the street. Bikers love the area.
