PANORAMIC OCEANFRONT VIEWS AT OUR SEA GLASS COTTAGE!!

Montara Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

Listen to the waves below

Take in magnificent views of the Pacific Ocean

Breathe in the fresh, clean air at the beach

Feel all your worries melt away...

This oceanfront Sea Glass Cottage is the picture-perfect place to enjoy natural beauty and serenity on the san mateo coast near Half Moon Bay. Nothing in front of you but the Pacific Ocean. Ideal spot for a romantic retreat to the beach, a honeymoon, or celebrate an anniversary , mom daughter weekend or best of friends getaway. Our guest comments repeat each other with how being close to the ocean seems to melt their busy lives away.

Sea Glass Cottage is a studio layout. The unobstructed ocean views can be enjoyed from the kitchen, living/dining area, as well as the sleeping area where you can wake up to the amazing ocean view from the comfort of your cozy king-size bed. Watch the sea lions, pelicans, seasonal whales, and dolphins go by.

Each of the two cottages on the property has its own small private deck with comfortable outdoor wicker lounge chairs & ottomans, situated to enjoy an unobstructed ocean view.

The views are absolutely stunning from all living areas of this romantic, elegantly appointed cottage. This is the spot to truly get away from it all. And still less than a 30-minute drive to San Francisco! Sea Glass Cottage includes the following amenities:

- High thread count linens

- Pillow-top king bed with white leather tufted head and foot board

- White stained oak flooring throughout

- Sophisticated seaside furnishings

- White spa towels and robes for lounging

- Shampoo/conditioner, mouthwash, soaps, shower gel, lotions

- Fully stocked kitchen for foodies... create your own romantic beach meal. There's even a panini maker!

- Coffees: ground & whole bean, grinder, press, selection of assorted teas

- 37 in. flat screen TV w/ cable, DVD player

- Comcast WiFi internet service (complimentary)

- iPod station

- Warm, cozy blankets for sitting outside at the gas fire pit.... witness the sunset setting directly in front of you!

Two cottages are situated on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean and unspoiled Fitzgerald Marine Reserve. There is a common garden area located an appropriate distance from each cottage to enable privacy. The shared area offers a comfortable outdoor sectional, individual lounge chairs, and gas fire pit.

Fall asleep to the sound of ocean waves on the beach below. Wake up to the sound of seagulls in the distant sky. Sip your morning cup of java on the beach, it's only a 2-minute walk from your front door, or sit in bed and enjoy your private oceanfront view.

Our Sea Glass Cottage was built in 1906. This location was a destination spot for weekenders in the early 1900's. Guests traveled by train from San Francisco and Santa Cruz to visit this amazing place referred to as 'Nye's Reef'. At one time the property boasted a restaurant, hotel, bunk houses, and a tavern. Most of the buildings are still standing. This oceanfront cottage has been visited by many well-known individuals over the years including Jack London and Luther Burbank. A little inspiration! The setting makes it ideal for couples or individuals seeking solitude and serenity on the San Mateo Coast overlooking at the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve.

Nearby:

- Fitzgerald Marine Reserve (2-minute walk). Explore tide pools, watch sea lions napping on the rocks in the natural bay.

- 100 year-old forest (2-minute walk)

- Seal Cove Beach, a hidden gem (7-minute walk)

- Historic distillery restaurant (10-minute walk)

- Mavericks surf break (20-minute walk)

- Princeton Harbor for boating, kayaking, restaurants, shopping, or pampering spa. Pick up fresh fish from the local fisherman at the Princeton Harbor Pier for that gourmet seafood dinner you've been dreaming of creating! (3 miles)

- Half Moon Bay, quaint & historic town (6 miles)

Please no weddings, receptions or parties.

The beauty here will astound you. When our guests arrive and open the gate, everyone has the same reaction... 'Wow, this is unbelievable!'

We hope to soon welcome YOU to this breathtaking location and the Sea Glass Cottage.

Aloha, ~Carol & Jerome

Jerome & I have lived on the coast for 36 years. Jerome visited the area as a youngster with his grandparents in the 60's, fishing and playing on the beaches. I grew up in the South Pacific, my bearings have always been the ocean. The beauty of the coast, the open hills, miles of beaches, and isolation from the fast pace of city life helped us decide to make this place our home. Our choice to live and raise our children here is undeniably our our best decision! ~Carol

Of the many places around the world we've been fortunate to visit and/or live, this spot is an incredible gem! The views are panoramic, unspoiled and unsurpassed. It is too special not to share with others.

The awe-inspiring sunsets viewed from the garden area are difficult to describe, they must be experienced. Exploring Fitzgerald Marine Reserve tide pools at low tide is not to be missed. Low tide occurs twice daily. Walking trails along the bluffs above the marine preserve and Seal Cove Beach are magnificent. A quick 10-minute walk through a 100 year-old forest is a fun adventure, ending at the Distillery Restaurant with its legend of the Blue Lady.

SO MUCH FUN. :)

  • 5 of 5
This place has everything we wanted in a relaxing weekend get away. We also brought our small dog with us and he had a great time.

Moss Beach is a 5 minute drive north (dogs allowed on leash).
There is a marine preserve with tide pools that is a 5 minute walk from the cottage (dogs not allowed).
There is a Cypruss Tree Forrest that is a 7 minute walk from the cottage (dogs allowed on some parts).
And there is a nice restaurant called the Distillery that is a 15 minute walk from the cottage (dogs allowed on patio). They even had a dog menu for our pug!

Our family had a great time and will definitely be back to visit in the future.

So awesome that you can hear and see the waves crashing at night from your room or outside viewing area. :)

NO BETTER WAY TO RELAX..

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for the wonderful stay at the Sea Glass Cottage. It was the perfect way to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. The cottage was exactly as described. The best time was relaxing on the yard chairs soaking up the view. Thanks for the special arrival gifts of the champagne and fresh baked cookies. Your location is so special, we hope to return sometime.

OUR VACATION

  • 5 of 5
I want to personally thank Carol and Jerome for our wonderful stay in their cottage by the sea. My granddaughter had a fantastic time. The cottage was cozy and had a great view of the ocean. We had the pleasure of staying 9 days. The time went by so fast. The amenities and hospitality were amazing. We look forward to our next vacation by the sea.

GREAT INTIMATE GETAWAY

  • 4 of 5
If you are looking for a place to get away for a intimate weekend or week with your spouse, this is the place to go. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking and there are so many things to do that are close by (walking distance). The accommodations are great and the whole place just encourages you to leave all of your worries behind. There are several VERY good restaurants nearby or you can just stay in and grill on the property. The view from the sofa/firepit area kept us outside for hours. Carol has just made this place into a little oasis that allows you to relax and do as little or as much as you want. My wife and I had a great time and we will be back again!!! Thanks....

PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at the Sea Glass cottage in late April. We were so pleased with everything. We spent as much time outside as we possibly could. The view was breathtaking! Our first evening, we were treated to a beautiful sunset that was mixed with rain clouds bright rays of sun as the sun was setting. The cottage was perfect, the ocean view while in the kitchen and while sitting at the dining table made for eating in a treat! And the warm cookies left at our doorstep the first night was a special treat! Thank you for sharing your paradise with us.

AMAZING PLACE

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at the Sea Glass Cottage for 3 nights - we will definitely be going back. The location is AWESOME - just gorgeous. On the cliffs overlooking the ocean, with a short walk down to the beach where the seals sun bathe. Amazing tidal pools at low tide. Gorgeous forest with trails adjacent to property. Short walk down the beach to a great bar/restaurant. The cottage itself is charming, clean, decorated very nicely, high end furnishings. Great bedding, with amazing view from bed! There is plenty to do within a short drive: horseback riding on the beach, biking, local restaurants/shopping, and short drive to San Fran. We absolutely loved this place and will definitely be returning - I hope many times!
