Annette Merriman and Frederick Isaak purchased this house in 2004

Why Annette Merriman and Frederick Isaak chose Half Moon Bay

Annette and Fred purchased this property more than 10 years ago when they decided to move out of the city of San Francisco and truly embrace living life on vacation.

This is a perfect relaxing home base for your Northern California, San Francisco, trip. The home is spacious and designed for entertaining. The retreat can comfortably can sleep six in three high end comfortable beds. Brand new Hot tub makes the relaxing even easier.

What makes this house unique

Placed up the hill from El Granada Surfers Beach and Sams Chowder House the weather is much sunnier, warmer and clearer than many locations in the Coastal area that are lower or closer to the ocean.

Location is often warm into the 70s during the day with minimal wind. Average year round weather here in El Granada is low to mid 60s during the day with strong sunshine most days. Evenings are cooler and may include stronger breeze, fog and at times drizzle.

Beautiful Tree Top home

  • 5 of 5

The Tree Top Retreat is a fantastic play to get away, and have close access to half Moon Bay activities. My friends and I visited and went on a big day of salmon fishing. The home's kitchen served us very well as we cooked up a salmon for dinner and for breakfast. It is generously stocked with all you'd need for different styles of cooking. The house is well taken care of and gorgeous, with multiple balconies providing beautiful views. I'd highly recommend it.

Beautiful home in a lovely location

  • 4 of 5

We had an excellent time at this beautiful home in El Granada. It's hard to beat sitting in the hot tub under the moonlight, looking over the eucalyptus to the ocean beyond, while listening to a great horned owl play call-and-response with the foghorn in the distance. The house also had an excellent kitchen, and I'd highly recommend the Hop Dogma Brewery in town.

The property is in a good location, close to the beach and Half Moon Bay. The house is very clean, really appreciated the no shoe policy as I also do at home. Great kitchen, has everything for cooking. Owners were always available for questions. Good communication. Thanks for a great stay.
