We are a family of beach lovers (especially my wife) who enjoy having a beach retreat that is easily accessible to San Francisco, San Jose, and the SF Bay area.

John Ortiz purchased this house in 2002

We love this location because it is easy to get to, and it is next to the beach, bike trails, hiking trails and so many ocean activities. We also find the people in Half Moon Bay to be very friendly.

Here are 9 of our favorite Activiteis:

(1) Easy beach outings!

(2) Evening hot dog and marshmallow roasts on the beach

(3) Taking a run along the bluffs and returning along the beach collecting shells.

(4) Biking along the Coastal Trail up to Princeton by the Sea for a seafood meal at Sam's Chowder House or Barabara's Fishtrap (2 local Favorites)

(5) Biking or driving a few minutes to town for a Sunday morning chocolate croissant or Farmers Market (seasonal)

(6) Easy access to Coastal Repertory Live Theater

(7) Enjoying a romantic evening sunset on our beach at the end of our street

(8) Savoring a sunset glass of wine at the Ritz-Carlton hotel while listening to the bagpipers playing the sunset tunes

(9) A cozy nighttime fire in the living room listening to music with the sounds of waves crashing and occasional blares of the foghorns drifting through the windows

COMFORTABLE BEACH HOUSE

  • 4 of 5
Enjoyed our stay at Half Moon Bay. House was just as described with really nice kitchen fixtures and cabinets. A short walk to the beach with awesome views of the sunset. Outside shower with warm water was good to get off sand. We rented bikes from bike shop downtown and did the coastal trail even though bridge was out we were given a map to work around. Loved the farmers market with fresh fruit and flowers. They had one downtown and at Pillar Point Harbor where we also enjoyed great Clam Chowder at Barbera's Fish Trap. Good place to stay!

What a great beach house! I felt 'at home' while staying here. Short walk to the beach. The owner didn't spare any expense in the remodel of the home....beautiful and cozy at the same time!

FANTASTIC RENTAL!

  • 5 of 5
We travelled to Half Moon Bay from Connecticut for a family wedding. There were 5 adults in our group. This home was perfect! It was fully equipped, extremely clean and very comfortable. Just a short walk to the beautiful coast and a short drive to downtown. We had a great stay and I would highly recommend this property!

COZY BEACH SPOT

  • 5 of 5
We truly enjoyed this home. Walking distance to the beach, where we saw whales swim by- a quick drive to the bluff about Mavericks to watch surfers, seals and sky- and close to everything else. The house is super cozy, has a great backyard with grill for a meal and even a fire pit! It's a great place to unwind.

FABULOUS WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay in your beautiful beach side chalet. The house had ample beds for our family of five to be very comfortable. The living room with the fireplace was perfect for evenings and the chairs in back served as a lovely reading area. We had everything we needed and loved the clean artfully decorated home. We especially loved being so close to the beach, listened to the waves at night, morning runs on the bluff and the surf, evening sunset walks, and we were close enough to walk into town for dinner. Could not have been more perfect! thank you for sharing your home with us and for making it so easy and pleasurable.

AWESOME COZY HOME

  • 5 of 5
We wanted a small getaway and due to the availability John (owner) was able to accommodate us. It was PERFECT for our 2 little family. We have 2 infants so I was very skeptical in renting a place that would be clean. I brought my own cleaning tools. To our surprise, this lovely remodeled home is VERY clean. I didn't need to wipe anything down. We were very comfortable to have our little ones lay on the beds. By far the most comfortable stay in Halfmoon Bay for us. We stay at least 3 times a year. I recommend this place for small families. We really enjoyed our stay. Thanks John and family for the hospitality.
