What makes this house unique

This beautiful location with views of the mountain coming down to the ocean never ceases to delight our senses. Love to hike Montara Mountain with it's many trails, walk the Coastal Bluff Trail in Half Moon Bay and the Pacifica Coastal Trail at Linda Mar. The Harbor area is a treat with kayak rental, boat excursions, restaurants and fresh fish off the boats. Being just 25 minutes from San Francisco makes for great day excursions. We are within a few hours of several wine regions. Our sleepy little town is amazing and affords a serene respit for the spirit.

Wonderful vacation!

The house was perfect in every way. Location was convenient to San
Francisco, Santa Cruz vineyards, Carmel and Pescadero. We stayed around the house a couple of days and enjoyed that as much as anything. Lovely area with Half Moon Bay down the road and beautiful beaches across the road. Still think about the sunsets on the deck overlooking the pacific.

Dream view, dream dunes

Really a great spot. I was worried about the noise from the highway since I am a light sleeper, but the noise of the waves prevails and it was not an issue. The house has views that won't quit- really nice sitting areas. All of the appliances are updated and the bathrooms were beautiful. We really enjoyed dinners at Pasta Moon in Half Moon Bay and tried out a couple of the other restaurants- all very good. Shopping is pretty close by, but we just hit fruit stands and the convenience stores and mostly ate out since there was very little in the way of staples at the house (salt, pepper, oil) and since we were only there 4 days it wasn't worth a huge shop. The owners were very professional and super nice, and also accessible - very responsive on email and the phone. I love the location and highly recommend the house. Would love black out curtains in the bedroom! 25 minutes down from SFO and you're in a coastal wonderland! We'll be back!

The views from at least three rooms are amazing. The house is very clean, comfortable and had everything we could have needed. We wanted to plan another trip back before we left! Owners were very nice and great to work with. Highly recommend,

Had a wonderful holiday week at this beautiful home

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this home over the week of New Year's and it was wonderul. Not only is the view of the Pacific great, the home is beautifully appointed. High end appliances, lots of open space, very comfortable appointments and furnishings. One of the things we appreciated was that the home was ready to live in. The owners had stocked extras of everything including laundry detergent, paper towels and bathroom supplies...it was all there in plentiful supply. The kitchen had plenty of dishes and cookware to make it easy on the evenings when we stayed in. We would definately stay again, the owners made it easy...and the house was fantatic.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5
By far the most comfortable bed that I have slept in for a long time. Very peaceful. Beautifully decorated. Had an issue with the wireless, but a reboot cleared that up. Well equipped kitchen. A very easy drive to San Fran. Great restaurants in the immediate area. Would love to come back again.

It's All That and More!

My husband and I stayed at this lovely home for our 40th anniversary and loved it! The owners have obviously put a lot of thought and expense into creating a beautiful oasis with wonderful views of the Pacific Ocean. It was perfect for our "ocean fix", needed periodically now that we've moved to Sonoma. I can't think of a thing that you would need for your stay that is not provided by the owners. I did have trouble with the WiFi, however. We kept getting a "good" signal but never could get connected. Not a big deal for us, but could be for someone. Also, we had to step out on to the front deck to get Verizon service on our cell phones. None of this really bothered us, though, since the weekend was all about relaxing, looking at the water and enjoying time together in a beautiful home.

Owner's Response: You were wonderful guests and we look forward to your return ocean fix to our Bluff House. Thanks so much for letting us know about the wifi connection. We brought in our internet provider who reset the password which makes the internet work perfectly and can be used on the wifi settings on cell phones. Yes, even Verizon will now work.
Thanks again Victoria and Ernie.
