About Nancy & Gary

Gary owns and operates a telescope company and Nancy works with communities and companies to help develop visions of the future. She is also an artist and author. We enjoy meeting new people and sharing our spectacular home.

Nancy & Gary purchased this house in 1976

Why Nancy & Gary chose Montara

This is our home. We live upstairs and welcome guests to use the first floor. This is one of the most beautiful spots on earth and it is a short drive to San Francisco or south to Palo Alto or Santa Cruz.

You can't get closer to the ocean without getting wet. The views are spectacular. We are a few minutes away from one of the largest tide pools in the nation. Hiking, beaches, redwood forests, all nearby.

What makes this house unique

Extras that we offer: Spa package week end including private yoga classes, massage, couples get-away, small meetings or special gatherings. Nancy specializes in drawing a visual representation of people's personal vision or a couple's shared vision. This is a service she offers to interested guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The view from this gorgeous home is fantastic; ocean views across the whole west side of the house, gulls flying by at eye level. We even saw whales. Very artistic and elegant furnishings, murals on the walls, and a kitchen that even included a juicer and Cuisinart. We especially appreciate the warm welcome and friendly manner of our hosts. They provided information about local restaurants and nature walks, and made us feel very welcome from the start. We will be back!

Classic California Coast

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a family get together. Nancy and Garry were very welcoming, gave us local advice, and made sure we had everything we needed. The views from the kitchen, living areas and deck are phenomenal. The kitchen is perfect for group cooking, love those two large sinks. Some VRBOs only have the bare necessities, but this house included the little things, there were spices and basic condiments in the kitchen and baskets of assorted toiletries in the bathrooms. There are so many things to do near the house. We visited the harbor, the marine reserve, Purisima creek regional park, downtown Half Moon Bay, and the local beaches.

Amazing stay oceanside

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a relaxing, oceanfront property to rent for my family to get together for a rare week together. This property surpassed all of my very high expectations. The view was amazing and the house was top notch. Gary and Nancy were very welcoming, and quickly became like family. They made extra effort, however, to make sure we had our privacy. The location really is amazing (the photographs do not do it justice!). There were great running trails close by and great places to eat, as well as a lighthouse within walking distance (which my nephew loved). We were considering one of the local oceanfront hotels, but after experiencing true relaxation at this property we will be back many times in the future. There really is nothing like this place out there that I have experienced.

What a great experience!

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé & I rented this home for the few days before our wedding on the coast. It is everything that is shown on this site and more! Nancy greeted us and gave us information about the home and usage as well as showing us there was plenty of dishes/silverware for our large group. We had a dinner event for our family which was about 30 people and then brunch the day after the wedding. There was plenty of room for everyone & it was wonderful that we could open the sliding glass doors and people could flow out onto the deck with the wonderful ocean view. We will definitely stay here again even if we're not having a large group for meals!

Peaceful and Beautiful and Clean

  • 5 of 5

The owners allowed us to have our wedding here, what a gift they are, truly amazing people! They went out of their way making sure the experience would be great, a perfect blend of maintaining privacy and being helpful at the same time. It was perfect for the 25 people who filled the home. The ceremony had the ocean as a backdrop with the lighthouse and cliffs to either side. The dinner reception was indoors. The chef was comfortable in their gourmet kitchen and we had compliments from the unmarried guests as to how "this is how they would want their wedding." Outside of the wedding, my family stayed in the house and had only nice things to say about the comfort and of the home and bedrooms. It was walking distance to cafes and short drive to Half Moon and Pacifica.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My family and I absolutely loved this place, it has been more the 6 months since we stayed there and I have such fond memories of our stay there. It is very clean, very tranquil, very relaxing, the views are absolutely spectacular. The owners are a joy to deal with and wonderful people. I would absolutely stay there again, as a matter of fact writing this review makes me long to go back.

Extremely Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Gary & Nancy - Thanks again for opening up your beautiful home for our stay. I can't remember having spent a few days anywhere and feeling so relaxed in such a peaceful, spectacular setting. Your photos don't do it justice. It is a beautiful home, but just as importantly is owned and managed by very special people. We much appreciated the gracious, uncomplicated, and accommodating manner in which you handled everything on relatively short notice. The home was clean and elegant, yet lived-in (not stale), and the serenity and views unforgettable. The sight of the lighthouse on the bluff, combined with the sound of the surf, was the perfect beginning to each day, while the sunset over the water was the perfect ending. Can't say enough to recommend your property to potential future clients! Thanks again, we will be back!
