About this listing
This cozy, clean, bright apartment has floor to ceiling windows which allow for panoramic views of Coyote Ridge and the Pacific ocean. Hammock and hot tub right outside your door. This space is ideal for a personal retreat of any kind.
This is an in-law suite with its own separate entrance independent of the main house. Architecturally interesting; it has floor to ceiling glass walls, heated concrete floors and has a palette of warm colors-golds, oranges, yellow. The bed is queen size with an additional futon couch that also makes into a double bed in another area. The expansive views from the room are of the Pacific ocean, Coyote and Diaz Ridge which are also good to hike. This room is comfortable for 1 or 2 people, but can sleep 4.

The other options are to drive 10 minutes up the road to Stinson Beach for restaurants and small grocery market. Or drive 15 minutes to Mill Valley or Sausalito for a range of cuisine and a variety of grocery stores and gas

Interaction with Guests
Our interaction with guests is low due to the fact that we hike, work, play and travel a lot! Sometimes we are not here to greet guests. I like to check in with guests before they arrive and make sure they are clear on directions, parking and how to locate the room.
If you arrive after dark please let us know since there are no streetlights and it can feel darker than dark on the roads the first time here. Our grounds are well lit though...We are always available by text for any questions or needs.
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.
Other Things to Note
Parking: Once you drive down the steep driveway, you will see a parking area on the right. Please park in front of the guest parking sign leaving enough room for 2 other cars to park next to you on your right side.
WHERE IS THE GETAWAY? Once you get out of your car you will be facing a grassy area. To the left of the grass is a gate which you will take down a flight of stairs passing the hot tub and hammock. At the end of the deck you will see another gate. Once through, you will see inside the room. The window you are looking through has a dark handle. The wall slides open and you are in : ) There are towels for shower and hot tub in the room along with coffee and teas. The room can be bright, we have community
eyes shade, but if you like you can of course bring your own if you are sensitive to light.
IF YOU ARE ARRIVING AT NIGHT: It is dark here in the woods! Please bring a flashlight or, let us know so we can help you. There are some lights on the path, but might not be enough for some people to feel comfortable finding their way the first time. Hope this helps! Texting is the best way to reach me quickly : )
