Loved the area! For 3 days Bathroom had a substantial drain leak flowing out from base of sink onto feet and adjacent to an electric heater....scary! Power strip in cottage didn't work, needs to be replaced. No chairs for sitting outside ..Pam kept telling us she would get some and never did. There were hard metal chairs that she said were missing cushions. Dogs barked intermittently all day/night especially Monday night. Asked her to resend 10 best things to do she told me to go back to original posting on A bnb rather than simply resending e.g. Copy and paste simple thing to do. Needed to request toilet paper. First she said 1 roll on the shelf ( there was not) then she texted she left 1 for us. 2 rolls of toilet paper total. No paper towels and 1/4 box tissue.

Response from Jeff & Pam:
Kathleen, You showed up two hours before check-in time and we kindly allowed you to settle in early. So sorry that you found the sink leak uncomfortable. We alerted you of it when we discovered it before your arrival. It was leaking into the shower drain and not by the electric heater so there was no hazard. We always tell our guests to let us know if they need anything and when you alerted us that you were running low on toilet paper, we promptly furnished a new roll. The cleaners must have forgotten to restock it. Upon your departure, we found spilt coffee all over the place including the walls, refrigerator, and all around the Keurig machine, but even so, we gave you a five-star rating for cleanliness because we understand those things happen. It would have been nice for you to have let us know that you had an accident and perhaps didn't have time to wipe it up. As for what to do in the area, we provided many choices in our listing and via messaging when you inquired prior and during your stay. It is not upon us to "copy and paste" the information again. When you asked again, we responded promptly to see our listing which is provided for guests to plan their outings. In closing, we still hope that you enjoyed your stay and the accommodations that we provided.

We stayed with Jeff and Pam for two nights in Muir Beach and it was a wonderful escape from San Francisco (yet close enough to explore the city daily). We wanted a quiet space with an oceanfront view and it was perfect. The view from the bed was exactly as advertised. While the bathroom is outdoors and can be cold at night, just remember to use the heater provided. We cannot say enough good things and Jeff and Pam were fantastic hosts who thought of every tiny detail.

We enjoyed the Love Shack especially the beautiful view and the calm and peacefulness. The beach and access to hiking trails is a short walk away. I suggest bringing food for a simple breakfast or lunch as any store is ~ 6 miles away over the hills. They do have a small refrigerator. Also visit Muir Woods early on a weekday. We went at 8 AM on a Monday and no one was there--at least at first--beautiful!

This place is perfect! Beautiful view and only a short distance to the beach. It was quiet and private, perfect for a romantic getaway or a solo retreat. The interior was cozy and had everything we needed. The bathroom was funky and cool and surprisingly comfortable considering it was outside. Pam and Jeff gave us privacy but were available easily available if we ever needed them. We highly recommend the love shack and we would love to come back!

We enjoyed our stay in this cute place. The view and outdoor siting area were enjoyable. The room is comfy and private. We enjoyed walks on the beach and Old Speckled Hen on tap at the Pelican Inn.

Very good hosts. The unit is extremely cozy and filled with gorgeous views and many necessities in the love shack. We left a shirt behind and Pam contacted us to give us the option to ship the shirt back. Nice couple who is very hospitable and timely with responses. Thank you for letting us stay at your place.
