Rent the Beach House that thinks it's a Mountain Lodge! Our rustic rental is a family and pet friendly haven that is only two blocks from Half Moon Bay State Beach, located on the beach side of scenic Hwy 1.
We are a quick drive to the Harbor and all of its restaurants and activities, as well as the downtown district of Half Moon Bay. There are 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and one large and spacious Great Room that attaches to the deck. We've got a great kids room with bunk beds and an upper loft, that can sleep 2 extra. The kitchen was redone in 2008 and the kitchen table can sit 8 people very comfortably. Come and relax in this cozy space.

This property is a wonderful spot to relax and reconnect with the family. There are lots of activities offered in Half Moon Bay. Whether you're a shopper, a beach comber, a naturalist or an adventurer, you can find something to suit you in Half Moon Bay. Or you could choose to stay at home and relax on the deck and in the Great Room. Our new kitchen makes preparing dinner a joy, and the grill is always prepped for whatever you care to BBQ. But, if cooking in isn't your idea of a vacation, there are plenty of great restaurants to try out in the area.
We had an absolutely marvelous time at your beach house, a wonderful home away from home for our 6 week stay in CA. Everything was cozy and perfect, and my mom's 60th [party] held one of our final weekends in town, was a big hit. We hosted a barbecue... ...with my grandparents up from LA, and it was not cramped at all. Everyone kept remarking how beautifully renovated your house is, with so much wood detailing and unique nooks and crannies. We have research at Stanford in the near future, really an easy commute, and would not hesitate to make HMB our home away from home again. Lovely all around, and our dog Aldo could not be pulled away from the beach. Thank you!
Our family stayed at the Beach House the first week of December and despite rain every day had a great time. Instructions from Meg were clear, questions we had were answered promptly and kindly, and the house was very well equipped, especially the kitchen. The living room and dining area are very large and super comfortable to hang out in. Beds were comfortable and all bathrooms worked fine. The house has charm and a lovely vibe. Highly recommended!
We had a wonderful time in Half Moon Bay. The beach house was great. Not far from the beach. We took a walk on the beach just about everyday. We had some family gatherings while we were there. This home is set up to entertain and has a wonderful kitchen. Thank you Meg and we would recommend your home to anyone.
We have rented houses throughout the state for the past several years, and this home was certainly the cleanest, well thought-out one we've stayed in. While not without it's "quirks" (aka "charm") you can tell the owners really do enjoy / care for this property with all of the little details. One of the owners, Meg, was so responsive to any/all questions prior to our stay. She was also great to deal with after the stay. My wife, son and two dogs could not have enjoyed our stay more. Only slight bummer was that the beach that is closest to the house (about a 3-5 minute walk) is NOT dog friendly. We needed to head probably 15 minutes up the (awesome) trail to get to where the dogs were welcomed. Hwy 1 is QUITE busy, so plan your left turns (north) in your vehicle with time to spare as it could take 5+ minutes to (somewhat safely) turn at the busy times of day. Really enjoyed the State Park Tidepools just a few minutes north in Moss Beach. It was tough to pack-up and leave the 60's to return to the 100+ temps 200 miles away! We may not be looking for a new city / home to rent next year and may break tradition and repeat our stay here. Thanks for everything Meg!
This is a great location for visiting Half Moon Bay, the coast down to Santa Cruz, and San Francisco. We loved the house, especially the kitchen, dining room, great room, and deck areas. The eight of us (and two dogs) were very comfortable. The house is very close to the beach. We enjoyed watching the sunset every evening. Our grandson (20) and granddaughter (17) loved the house and location too. Our granddaughter was able to schedule campus tours at UC Berkeley and Stanford. Thanks Meg!, we plan to come back.
This was a wonderful home to stay at to relax and enjoy Half Moon Bay. It was located just a few minutes' walk from the beach. The kitchen had just about everything we needed (though we did bring our own big steamer pot for steaming crabs). Everything about the house was comfortable, from the beds to the couches in the living room (with gas fireplace) to the large dining table to the large deck (we lucked out and got warm weather and blue skies in December). Besides all the adults absolutely raving about this home, even the little 18-month old and dog in tow seemed to agree that this delightful property was indeed kid and pet friendly! The owner was very helpful and responsive to our needs. We loved our retreat here so much that we are thinking of making it an annual tradition!
We rented this house for our beach wedding reception. The owner was very responsive to all my questions before, during and after renting the house. The house is more spacious then the pictures show. We had a last minute change of plans as to which beach we were getting married on, due to the traffic on the Highway 1. We pulled it all together quickly and re-grouped to have the wedding on the beach at the end of the street, near the beach house - could not have worked out better! House was clean and neat, the fire pit on the large deck was a nice place for our guests to gather in the evening to laugh and be merry. We had a great weekend and would come back again to have a fun play weekend. :) Thank you again Meg! :)
