Dog and child friendly, with a 10 minute walk to Muir Beach, The Breezeway is a comfortable, peaceful, unique separate apartment that is connected by 1 common wall to the main house which we call the Barrel because of its unique round shape.
The Breezeway has its own separate entrance, kitchen, living room and bedroom, bathroom equipped with shampoo, soap, towels, linens. It is surrounded by hills and the Pacific ocean and landscaped grounds. There is a private hammock and fire pit on your deck and access to the redwood hot tub with ocean view.
Off of the living area/kitchen, is a bedroom which has a queen size bed (pillow top mattress) with cotton sheets, plenty of pillows and a cushy down comforter for a most comfortable rest. The bedroom also has its own door which takes you onto the privacy of your deck with big views where there is a small cafe table to sit for morning coffee along with the hammock and fire pit (wood provided).
All of the lights are on dimmers which creates a warm, romantic ambiance. Off the bedroom is a small bathroom with a nicely tiled shower.
The living room has floor to ceiling windows with a large, wide, plush sofa with views of Coyote and Diaz ridge.
The small, efficient kitchen has a mini fridge, coffee maker, dishes and everything else you would need to make a simple meal. We provide coffee and a variety of teas, spices, sugar, olive oil, salt, pepper.
If you are planning on cooking in, you might want to do your grocery shopping in town before you arrive since there is not a grocery store here at Muir Beach.
In the room is a small screen with Apple TV with numerous channels and movies. There is a work area/desk for people who use a computer. We have high speed internet. We use No VOC paints, green cleaning products and hypoallergenic biodegradable laundry soap.
There is a fire pit outside your room on the deck where you are free to have a nice fire. We provide the wood.
The hot tub is a for our guests and family, so it is shared and exposed for the 360 degree views. Swim suits and showers before getting in are required.

Interaction with Guests
Greg and I have active lives and do not get to interact as much as we would like these days.
This is one of the reasons we have you check in at your leisure between 4-10pm
Muir Beach is made up of 155 houses. It is a small, colorful, tightly knit community of artists, families, dog lovers, nature lovers and eclectic souls.
Muir Beach is about a 10 minute walk from our house- 298 steps take you down to the beach if walking, otherwise it is a 1/2 mile drive to the parking lot of Muir Beach. The beach is dog friendly (off leash for well behaved dogs) bring poop bags with you if you are bringing your dog. Muir Woods is 2 miles away and has been very crowded of late due to the fact of Planet of the Apes movie stated Muir Woods as the Apes settling place which has made Muir Woods suddenly more attractive to tourists. We like to ride out bikes to MW. We have bikes you can borrow as well.
Unfortunately, there isn't any public transportation
Other Things to Note
*If you are checking in after 10pm please let us know as it is dark and can be disruptive to arrive late. We ask that you check in between 4-8pm. Our address takes you along a private road. Our driveway is steep and we share the driveway with one other home, but our house is the house at the bottom of the driveway with parking that is shared for up to 3 cars (1 car per guest) is to the right of the driveway. It is a paved road....
We ask for quiet after 10PM. : )
If you would kindly remove shoes while staying in the Breezeway.
Our guests have been bringing their own cozy slippers.
: ) Thanks!
Wow! Just Wow! My husband and I stayed here on our delayed honeymoon -where we celebrated our first wedding anniversary at the end of a big road trip. We could not have wished for anything better- the breezeway exceeded our expectations. It was peaceful relaxing and beautiful. With the beach a short stroll away and the enchanting muir woods nearby it made for a perfect base though we did not want to leave. Denise was very helpful and communicative - it was all made very easy. We tried out the recommended fish and chips in the local pub (where their barman was also very helpful when we lost our bearings slightly : ) it was the perfect way for us to complete our road trip. Thank you Denise for sharing your wonderful home
We had a great stay at the Breezeway. It was a lovely getaway close to the city with easy access to Muir Beach, Muir Woods and Muir Beach Overlook. Since the house is located down windy roads and there is such great sunset viewing nearby, we decided to get takeout at the end of each day out and dine on the deck. We really enjoyed the evenings!
The Breezway is absolutely perfect :) The location could not be better. Situated on the hill above the Muir beech it is ideal for getting some peace after spending a busy day in San Francisco.
Having a camp fire on the terrace, inhaling the pleasant scent of the pine trees and watching the stars we felt truly special.
Thank you Denise :)
My husband and I had a wonderful and relaxing stay at the Breezeway by the Sea! The views are stunning, the apartment just the right size, and the hikes to Muir Beach, Slide Ranch and through the Muir Woods were reinvigorating. What's best about it is how secluded you feel while being maybe 40 minutes away from downtown San Francisco, giving you easy access should you wish to venture into the city. Everyone was so great and friendly at the main house, in the neighborhood as we explored and hiked, and even the staff at the Mill Valley Whole Foods. I would highly recommend this accessible, soul soothing getaway.
Denise is a gracious host and the Breezeway is BEAUTIFUL! A beautiful, spacious living room, kitchen and bedroom with glass and views galore. The location is unforgettable within walking distance to an historic viewpoint, Muir Beach, and immediate access to PCH 1 for exploring this area just across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco. Denise took good care of us from arrival to departure, attending to details to ensure we had morning coffee and tea, internet access, and suggestions for restaurants and places to see. I highly recommend this unique and refreshing getaway from (yet near!) the city. And the redwood hot tub is heated 24/7 :)
The indications that Denise gave were perfect. We found the house and got into the amazing suite very easily. We had no interactions at all with Denise (she had left the door open for us, so no need for key retrieval), but that was totally fine with us.
The apartment is amazing, with a stunning view. There is a road under the deck, but it was very quiet and you cannot see it from the apartment, so you can basically ignore it.
The hot tub was great, all in wood, and with perfect temperature.
I highly recommend this stay in Muir Beach!
We had a nice stay at the breezeway.. what a great way to wrap up our week in CA! it was relaxing and at the same time invigorating. Definitely have it book marked for a return!!!
