Our lovely home is located on a private, beautiful park like acre of land, less than a mile from the beach. It's three levels offer space to be together and space for privacy too. Plenty of room for great family and friend's meals. You can start your vacation by relaxing on the deck with a glass of local wine, while the kids swing, play basketball and climb trees in the yard.
When you tire of that you can hike or mountain bike the hills behind the house, walk to one of the local ranches to ride horses, or go to the beach for sailing, kayaking, boating, fishing, surfing, shelling, paddle boarding, or wind surfing. Then off to the Bach Dancing and Dynamite Society for wonderful Jazz and into Half Moon Bay for shopping. After a day at the beach or shopping, stop by the Harbor to pick up fresh fish to bring back to the house and grill on the deck.
Don't forget to save a day to golf at one of the two world famous Ocean Colony Golf Courses. And a day, or two, to visit San Francisco which is only 20+ minutes away. Within a few minutes you can be enjoying the world class restaurants, museums, shopping, Broadway shows, and music venues that the City has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Our family departs today after four fun filled days in your lovely home. Our 5 & 7 year old grandchildren were completely charmed by the house, loving the high ceilings, the "cat" walk, the kitchen on the second floor. We had daily "nature walks" outside. Our granddaughter loved the blue passion flower vines.
We had fierce Frisbee competitions and lots of swinging. Even built an outdoor "play" kitchen out of bricks.
In the area we enjoyed the beach, had a great morning of fishing at Princeton Pier, a wonderful dinner at Sam's Chowder House, pony rides and a visit to the carnivorous plant store - we sell them at our nursery back in Virginia.
We had cookouts on the grill and a final meal with Olallieberry Pie from Half Moon Bay Farmer's Market. Your home was a great spot to create memories with our 2 California sons and their children. Thank You!
PS That master bedroom was so comfortable we loved waking up in a cloud every morning.
