We stayed for 5 weeks in the end of my 7-month academic visit to Stanford and it felt like home. We really liked the location, close to the beach and walking distance to the restaurants at the harbor. The area is really quiet and peaceful. The place was great for our family and we managed well with our 2-year-old son. Sam was really helpful with everything we needed (tips about the restaurants etc.) and it was fun to play with his dog, Winchester. Even our son got courage to play with Winny towards the end of our stay. We were a bit worried about the stairs at first but got used to them really fast with no problems. Sam even installed a gate with a lock upstairs for our son before we arrived. Huge flat TV with all the channels was a big plus. Would definitely stay again at Sam's place.
This property was perfect for our weekend getaway. It was private, close to beach, had a beautiful yard and area and gave us the ability to eat at home. Gave us the freedom and break that we needed and the dog was a plus. We will definitely stay here again.
Having recently moved away from HMB, returning for the Holidays presented a daunting task. We wanted to "feel at home", not so much feeling as a vacation, tourist kind of thing. Sam's place took care of that! It met all our needs for visiting family to join us for meals and movie nights, walks to the coastal trail and familiar restaurants, views of the ocean we have missing and more.
Don't expect fancy dancey Ritz Carlton kind of place and you will be just fine. The kitchen was well equipped, the bed was comfy, the shower was good (didn't experience the jetted tub) - we had everything we needed. Sam was quietly present when necessary and very responsive when we had to awaken him one evening for a little problem. Moving away from a "tourist destination" can make the visits back a bit complicated re: accomodations and $$$$$. This choice worked out beautifully for us. I was impressed that there is a statement in the contract stating that if you are not satisfied with the place upon arrival, your cancellation will be accepted, no questions asked. It is a "lived in" place - that might bother some people. You also are expected to clean before departing - just so you know.
As others have noted - the newspaper at the door is a nice touch. We walked to The Miramar Rrst. for Prime Rib Special (saw Sam there) - he alerted us to the "Deal". It was always one of our favorites, albiet a touristy place. Magnificent oceanfront location within walking distance to the unit.
We would recommend this place and hope to return, for sure.
Only one alert - one of our guests found the stairway uncomfortable. If you have any issues with open , narrow stairs, this is not for you. Just a heads-up.
Our family of 4 had a GREAT time at Sam's place for a weekend. The proximity to the beach and bike path is fantastic, such a treat for us landlubbers. Things to do: Take the Coastal Trail north to Pillar Point Harbor, or south along the state beach; buy crabs straight off a fishing boat and use Sam's recipe to cook them; explore the tidepools at Fitzgerald Marine Reserve; get amazing smoked fish or cheese at Creekside Smokehouse; play board games; watch movies and listen to music using the great direct TV system; play basketball in the driveway; hang out on the deck. The apartment is clean and comfortable, with a nicely remodeled bathroom. The living room/dining room combo makes it easy for a family to hang out together. Sam provided restaurant and activity recommendations, along with helpful advice about buying and cooking fresh crab and loaned us his giant pot for cooking them. There are beds for 3, and a pullout sofa (our teenager just slept on top). We can't wait to come back and explore the area further. Thanks, Sam!
My wife and I had a wonderfully relaxing time here. We didn't get into the car for the 48 hour duration of our stay because we had Miramar beach a block away and a nice restaurant three blocks away. The owner and his gracious lab welcomed us with morning paper, fuji apples, and knowledge of local get-aways. It was very quiet with porch views of the ocean. We will return with our son next time.
