The bed is queen size with an additional futon couch that also makes into a double bed in another area.

The Muir Beach community is a small tight knit colorful community of 155 homes. Many of the residence live at MB full time, so it does not have that vacation rental kind of feeling. You will find friendly neighbors that are artists, dog lovers and nature lovers in our circle. It feels very safe and wonderfully removed from the rest of the world.
There is not any public transportation. You will need a car to get around.

Quiet in the hot tub area after 10pm
My new secret writer's retreat. Thoughtfully decorated in a serene and gorgeous location. Quiet and peaceful. If you're not careful, you might actually feel incredibly refreshed after just two days here.
Denise was an amazing host, she was very inviting and very polite. We talked with her for about 15 minutes and explained if we needed anything she would be happy to get it for us. And on top of all of that I left some stuff at her house and she said she would ship it to me. How cool is that
We loved our stay here at Muir Beach! The accommodation was exactly as pictured, if not better. The view from every room was stunning! There was a good supply of coffee, tea and milk to keep us going. There was a list of local trails in the area which was fantastic to use. We didn't cross paths with Denise until the day we left however she was very friendly and keen to ensure that we were happy wuth everything during our stay. Overall we were extremely pleased with our stay and would highly recommend!
Such a sweet and charming spot for rest and relaxation. Denise has thought of everything ... from the inviting and simple decor to the detailed directions on short cuts to the beach. LOVED the Japanese Style Redwood Hot Tub ... AND, the Rainbow Shower. Everything ... Simple & Elegant ... Peaceful & Tranquil ... not to mention, Super Private. Thanks Denise!!!
Staying at Denise's house was such a delight. Everything was exactly as described, and the beauty of this area is beyond what we expected! The room is separate from the main house, with its own entrance, kitchenette, and shower. Additionally, there was an exceptionally comfy mattress and luxurious linens. One thing to note, this house can be somewhat difficult to access depending on the time of day due to the winding roads. Also, while this house felt very safe and private, the guest room is not secured with a lock. Still, this really was not an issue or concern at any time. Thanks so much Denise!
What can I say that hasn't already been said? Amazing place, amazing experience, every detail thought out, awesome shower, beautiful location, great decor, clean and all in all an INCREDIBLE experience. Would definitely stay again and in fact, plan to!
This was our very first Airbnb rental and it was ideal. Our experience matched the photos and descriptions given in the post. Denise, our host, was very warm, left us notes and literature on navigating the area and was always just a text away if we needed anything. My only regret was not having stayed longer!
