About John Ortiz

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

Why John Ortiz chose Half Moon Bay

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.

What makes this house unique

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

Great family destination

  • 5 of 5
Great location and great place for a family to stay. We brought 3 little kids with us to this lovely home and enjoyed every minute. It had the perfect spaces inside to run around and play while being close enough to make it to the beach each day.

Best girl's trip to date!

Wonderful home to stay in Half Moon Bay! Besides the home itself being beautiful, clean, and very modern (even down to the self closing drawers) it was also so close to the beach that I could hear the waves from my bedroom window at night. We had coffee every morning on the beach and a bonfire in the back yard fire pit every night. Highly recommend this place for anyone with or without kids in tow. It very comfortably fit 5 ladies on our annual trip and we all had our own beds! 3 of us in queen sizes! Book it!

Had a blast!

  • 5 of 5
Had a great time at the house. It was centrally located to some of the areas we wanted to go - San Francisco, San Jose, Santa Cruz.. even made a trip to Monterey reasonable distance. One of the days, we walked to the beach for the day and brought the chairs and beach supplies in the garage. Used the fire pit in back for SMores one night. The house had everything we needed and a lot of things that we have never seen in a rental. We went to the store and picked up things before we went to the house and realized most of the supplies like shampoo, detergent, and other things were already supplied. It was immaculate when we came in with a bottle of wine on the living room table waiting for us (didn't drink it but a really nice touch). Half Moon Bay is kind of foggy in the mornings during the summer but we had no rain the entire time we were there! Lots of good restaurants within a few miles.

Many thanks to John and Cathy for one of our best vacations ever!

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!
