A Family who loves the beach is now ready to share this great house with new families so that they can make memories.
Katelyn McManus purchased this house in 2008
Captain's Landing has been in the family for many years and we have enjoyed the location and the privacy of this wonderful home. Many fond memories with family and friends have been spent here in Pescadero.
Captain's Landing overlooks the Pacific Coast with private steps leading down to the sandy beach. Pescadero is centrally located between Santa Cruz and Half Moon Bay. San Francisco being about 1 hour 15 min north. Monterey and Carmel (17 Mile Drive) are approximately 1 hour 30 minutes south. Just south of the house is Ano Neuvo, home to the Sea Elephants and wonderful hikes. Plan to visit historical Pescadero with the famous Duarte's Restaurant, Harley's Goat Farm and wonderful Antiques. Enjoy many areas to hike or pick berries at Swantons farms. A visit at the Pie Ranch for homemade pies is a must. Half Moon Bay is 20 minutes north with wonderful restaurants, shopping, nurseries, wine tasting and home to the famous Pumpkin Festival. Enjoy golf, fine dining or treat yourself to a spa treatment at the Ritz Carlton in Half Moon. Bay. If surf fishing is your thing, don't forget your fishing pole. Our children have always enjoyed kite flying on the beach as well.
Truly lovely. This house is exactly as described and is exactly as the pictures portray it to be. We enjoyed the house for 4 nights but wished for more. There were 4 adults and 4 younger children in our group. While the house is set up to sleep 6, they included an inflatable air bed which was more than adequate to sleep our group.
The location could not be more perfect - set atop a small cliff, a few steps off the back porch to a very private, secluded beach. The views over the ocean are incredible and there are wrap around decks on both levels to take in all in. The kids spent every moment on the beach. The home owners provided a ton of sand toys, beach chairs, boogie boards, etc. Hours were spent walking along the shore, collecting shells/stones, creating habitats for the hermit crabs we found (and then releasing them), reading books, building sand castles, etc. The water is cold but they kids didn't seem to mind wading, splashing and very fast swims.
The house itself is very well appointed - we found everything we needed to prepare meals and used the grill several times. Each morning and evening were spent in the upper living room just taking in the views, listening to the surf and watching the sunset. It was gorgeous and so peaceful.
We are already planning to return as aside from enjoying the house, this area of the coast offers many activities. We did go down to the boardwalk in Santa Cruz one afternoon which was a fun change of pace and also LOVED Big Basin Redwoods State Park (though it was a bit of a drive). The town of Pescadero is about 10 minutes away and has a restaurant, small grocery store and coffee shop. We also liked the coffee/pastries offered in Davenport a few miles south. Less than a half mile from the house is a state beach called Bean Hollow which was perfect for a morning run along the ocean and they also have a sandy beach.
The owners are kind and easy to work with. THIS place is a true gem!
Being from the cold Midwest, we loved the experience of staying for a few days right on the Pacific Ocean during our spring break. The house has direct access to a secluded beach, and the owner has made sand toys and beach chairs available. The sounds of the surf and incredible views from any place in the house were wonderful. There are 2 kitchens and were well-stocked with all the equipment we needed. Our entire family (2 adults and 4 kids, ages 14-7) thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
Exceptional property. Quintessential view. Go in either direction on Hwy 1. Totally nothing to be disappointed in, unless you're hunting for a grocery store. Stop in San Francisco on your way down or Monterey on your way up for your wine and bread. Don't miss getting your berries and homemade jellies at Swanton Berry Farm and U-Pick. You buy everything you want on the honor system. Unbelievable. Perfect.
We have stayed at Captain's Landing for the past two holiday seasons and absolutely love it. It is a perfect place to stay if you love the ocean, wonderful views, and privacy!
We spent a week, but it wasn't long enough. The house and property were just as expected..quiet and right above the beach...just what we were looking for. Spent most of our time upstairs, looking out over the ocean. Saw seals, sea lions, dolphins, and whales from the deck. Our only complaint was that the sun almost never got through, but we can't hold that against anyone. We had a great time and you will, too.
This was the most comfortable, well-supplied, well-managed, and beautiful home for our family of six. The panoramic views were amazing! We enjoyed cooking at the house for dinner and traveling up and down the coast during each day. There is so much to do in the area, especially if you enjoy beaches, hiking and farm stands. A perfect vacation!
