    We absolutely loved our stay at "Pearl". Not only was it clean, well equipped, and a perfect location; the owners were more than helpful supplying us with information on the home, the nearby sites, hikes - the whole nine yards! The kitchen was open, spacious, and just the right setting for our visit providing ample room for cooking, visiting and sitting by the wood stove. Next time we plan to take advantage of the beach "toys" and try surfing and spending time in the water. Fun for the whole family! 28 November 2012 - 20:54:12

    My family and I had an excellent stay at Muir Beach's Pearl. The home is very clean, and dark corners for dust and spiders to hide. I am very particular where I stay, and fell in love with how comfortable, clean, and kept up the Pearl is. During our stay we visited Muir Woods, Stinson Beach, Drakes Beach in Point Reyes, down town SF, Mill Town and took in a horse back trail ride in Olema. All areas are within a short drive, with Drakes Beach taking the longest at about an hour. Muir Beach is steps from the front door which made seeing the sunset very easy. Drinking my morning coffee on the side porch listening to the waves and seeing the ocean was a great start to the day. My only suggestion (and some would call me crazy) would be having TVs in the bedrooms. Thank you so much Angie for such a wonderful stay. We will for sure come back during the summer. 05 January 2013 - 03:46:38

    We spent a long weekend at this beach house and had an excellent time. The location is fantastic - just a very short walk to the beach and hiking trails. Five minutes drive to Muir Woods and a great English pub at the end of the street. The beach house is beautifully updated and very comfortable. A great place to relax, even if it is cold and stormy outside! We will definitely be returning to this house. 09 April 2013 - 15:06:54

    This house is lovely. Our family of 5 (3 kids: 11,9 & 6) stayed at The Pearl and loved every moment of it. The house is exceptionally clean and well stocked with towels, bed linens and all the essential items needed when traveling. The beach is just a short walk away from the front door and very family friendly. The proximity to Muir Woods and San Francisco can't be beat. I would highly recommend The Pearl and have passed the information on to several friends and family members. Our deposit was returned immediately and Angie was a pleasure to work with. She answered emails and text messages immediately. Thank you again for allowing our family to rent your lovely home. Peace be the journey. 14 April 2013 - 01:11:29

    We had a fantastic stay at Muir Beach. The house was bright and cheerful with lots of fresh air! Also extremely clean and within walking distance of a pub/restaurant. Such a great location! We look forward to returning. 24 April 2013 - 20:35:12

    The house was perfect! Better than the photos, with tons of room. It is extremely well taken care of, and Angie answered all of our questions quickly with some great suggestions. I loved looking out of the bedroom and dinette windows to see the ocean in the distance. Our personal favorite were the three deer who visited on the hill behind the house. I think they watched us in the kitchen as much as we watched them! If you are planning to go to Pt Reyes, I suggest the Palace Market as a great little detour to grocery shop on the way back. Bring sandals for the beach. Its rocky with quite a bit of bon-fire debris. Muir Woods is breathtaking and just minutes away! 28 May 2013 - 18:09:24

    We had no problems at all. Everything was as advertised. The house was well supplied with products that I usually have to buy. The location was great for us. It was close to the ocean, near Muir Woods, Point Reyes, and San Francisco. The entire house was extremely clean. We went to the Marin County farmer's market and bought groceries in Mill Valley. We ate at the Pub once. Mostly we ate in nearby restaurants although nothing is really nearby. I would recommend this property highly. 23 June 2013 - 19:42:38

    Our family of 5 enjoyed a wonderful retreat time. The house was great--very clean, huge kitchen with lots of work area and plenty of space in the living and dining rooms. The beach is a stroll away and it was particularly nice to have easy access while people were lined up to park. Would definitely recommend this place to others. 04 July 2013 - 16:35:38

    We had a great vacation with the family. The place is very clean and well appointed. Owners were pleasure to deal with. It was very comfortable for my family of 5. 10 July 2013 - 09:21:29

    This was such a great place for us to get away after a pretty busy and difficult week. The house had everything we needed for our stay. The interior of the house is very bright, clean, well-cared-for and very appropriately furnished for a beach house. The beach and trails are only about a five-minute walk. On our last morning at the house four deer were grazing in the backyard; which delighted our two-year-old daughter. Our only regret is that our stay was so short. 14 March 2014 - 15:46:57

    We celebrated our girlfriends 50th birthday and had a lovely time. The "cottage" is very homey and close to many things to do and see...not to mention being steps away from Muir Beach! We definitely intend to return!!!Thank you bunches Angie for the tips on hiking! 07 April 2014 - 21:36:43

    Great place, beautiful view, very near to the beach, in love with the house, very nice property. Small but not too small, just perfect! 14 May 2014 - 03:28:23

    Angie and her husband have designed a beautiful, beach retreat full of all the amenities you would have at home. A spacious home with fully stocked kitchen, BBQ out back and tons of toys for the beach. It's steps away from the Pelican Inn, Muir Beach and minutes from Muir Woods. I had family stay here during our wedding weekend and they can't wait to come back! If you're looking for a clean, quiet, peaceful place to rest and enjoy nature, this is it. Thank you Angie, for everything! 10 September 2014 - 17:15:11

    This is a lovely property with an easy walk to the beach, Pelican Inn, and Zen Center. The house was very clean and comfortable. Our family of 6 and an infant enjoyed a long weekend together, including just hanging out in the morning drinking coffee and playing with the baby. Having the dishwasher and laundry facilities was a great asset and the owner was very prompt in bringing us supplies to use these items when I requested them. We swam, hiked, and boogie boarded all from the house. Muir Beach overlook was a very short drive away...make sure to go there for the sunset! We also walked Muir Woods and visited the horses at the stables. Extended family (we were there for a family birthday celebration) stayed in other rentals in Muir Beach so we did lots of walking and hiking up and down the community steps to visit them. I would recommend that you be in pretty good shape to explore this area, as it really is a walking/hiking community, with very narrow roads and very limited parking. I am also very thankful for the free wifi, as cell service is quite limited and we used email to communicate with other family during our stay. All in all a great place and I would stay here again in a heartbeat! 16 October 2014 - 15:03:57

    I actually work at The Pelican Inn which is right down the street, and needed a place for a family gathering. The Pearl was PERFECT!!!!! We had lunch with friends at the house then all walked to the beach for a bonfire. Two nights was not enough. I could stay there much longer!!! Loved it. Thanks Angie and Jess!! xxx Andrea 14 November 2014 - 20:21:54

    Perfect place right next to the beach. We were in awe of the cleanliness of the space and the huge kitchen! We loved hearing the ocean at night. We had a lovely weekend getaway and we can't wait for our next trip. Thank you for your kind hospitality. 16 September 2015 - 14:05:03

    We want to thank the owners for a great Stay! They were so friendly and helpful and have a clean, updated and neat property! It was our first time to Muir Beach and everything was wonderful from the Beach to the house. We will definitely be back! 21 October 2015 - 21:11:53

    I stayed at The Pearl for my wedding week. It exceeded my expectations - the space is large, clean, updated, and has the perfect location walkable to everything in Muir Beach. Our wedding was at the Pelican Inn and we had a welcome party the night before at the Muir Beach community center. Angie was great to work with and very speedy with any questions that came up ahead of time. We had no issues with the house and loved every minute! Felt like we were on the perfect vacation. Highly recommend. 05 September 2014 - 23:19:57

    Our family (two teens) had an awesome week (Christmas to New Years Day) staying at this house. It's a perfect location for a mix of outdoor activity and city exploring. We split our days, 3 in the city and 3 hiking the trails of Muir Beach, Muir Woods and Mt. Tam State Park. You can't ask for a better location for both activities. Everything was in perfect order when we arrived late Christmas night (flight from the east coast). The owners even had the heaters on for us when we arrived so the house was warm and ready for us to crash after our long journey. Some of our favorite local stops were; The Pelican Inn (of course) which you can walk to, Mill Valley downtown is gorgeous and there are a bunch of good restaurants, Sausalito, again, plenty of restaurants and shops. We hiked out to Pirates Cove and did the Green Gulch trail. Both you can walk to from the house. Both were challenging and your reward is amazing views. We also hiked the Dipsea Trail in Muir Woods. Another highlight was biking across the GG bridge to Sausalito. We used Blazing Saddles and they were great. Only issue was the ferry back which was ridiculously overbooked and we had to wait over 2 hours. We highly recommend this house and this area for hikers, relaxers and those who also want an easy hop into the City to enjoy SF. 03 January 2018 - 15:47:00

    We actually arrived here very late after check in and had to unlock the door in the dark but when we came in it was nice and warm because somebody had turned on the heater for us. The place is clean and tidy. There are two beds that would fit a couple and a couch that would fit may be a fifth adults or older child we actually arrived here very late after check in and had to unlock the door in the dark but when we came in it was nice and warm because somebody had turned on the heater for us. The place is clean and tidy. There are two beds that would fit a couple and a couch that would fit may be a fifth adult or older child. It's advisable to keep the two space heaters and living room heater running if you would like it to be warm. During the winter it's chilly but there are enough blankets there. They left hair shampoo for us and the bathroom was really big and comfortable. The kitchen table seats 4 comfortably. We mostly adventured while we were here. We went over to Bolinas they have a bird sanctuary where they tag and catch them, but they also have a trail that will take you through the most beautiful scenery. My advice is don't show up in flip-flops like I did. Also my child basically had to haul me up a hill side because I'm out of shape; but it was still worth it. There are so many little hidden jewels to explore around this area and Muir beach is nestled right in between everything. In Stinson and they have a pretty decent bookstore and some four star dining. The weather seems a little bit better in Stinson beach and you are less likely to have your legs sandblasted by the wind. But Muir beach is my favorite anyway. All in all, the best moments of my trips were waiting knee-deep into the creek and helping my kid build a dam. All of us cuddled and watch the waves crash. It was worth the money for sure! Pro tip: The actual Wi-Fi password is not on the handout that was given to you but it's put up on the wall near the refrigerator. Also if you need more toilet paper it's in the back bathroom. If you want the dryer to actually turn on you have to forcibly pull the handle out. 15 January 2018 - 21:40:00
