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.

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.

A Lovely Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at this property. The hosts provide a beautiful space that is very reasonably priced. Everything is clean, sleek and modern, and the bathrooms are especially luxurious. The only issue is that, during certain hours, a fog horn hums throughout all of Half Moon Bay every thirty seconds. It's not terribly loud, and it's obvious that the locals don't hear it anymore, but if you're extremely sensitive to sound at night, it's something to keep in mind. All in all, it's a beautiful space in a fantastic location.

Owner's Response: Thank you for appreciating our Retreat. We enjoy sharing the property with those that enjoy the details. We apologize for not realizing the Fog Horn is heard by our guests. We will add a note on our listing and some ear plugs in our guest goodie basket.

The Property was extremely clean, warm and inviting! Sipping our cup of coffee in bed while enjoying the tranquil views was awesome !
Lots if natural light and space. Lots of stairs which was tricking with our 17 month old but we enjoyed every minute.
All the amenities were provided for us.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful home. Everything was pristine and delightful. The beds were comfy. The kitchen was stocked like a chef's kitchen. We enjoyed every minute in in this home. The attention to detail did not go unnoticed. We had one minor hiccup with the TV, but Annette was available by phone to help us out. Annette was a joy to work with.
You won't go wrong if you choose this property.

The Tree Tops Retreat enabled us to relax in a warm & comforting environment. The kitchen is a dream kitchen with any supplies one would need to have the most enjoyable holiday.

Every attention to detail was met! From the cleanliness to the basket of information, to the beautiful gardens.

We enjoyed sitting on the deck, watching the deer, birds and more. This was the most peaceful weekend we have had for a long time.

We look forward to enjoying future weekends and weeks at the Tree Tops.
