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

(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
I rented this house for spring break with my family. It was a perfect beach getaway, small but up-to-date and comfortable. Everything was exactly as described. We enjoyed the ocean breezes and the beach being only a short walk down the street. The neighborhood is very peaceful. It was also convenient to shopping for groceries, etc. My husband was thrilled that there was a Peet's Coffee very close by. We had a great time and highly recommend it.
Enjoyed every aspect of the house for our 5 day stay. Particularly all the amenities that they have: all the board games, beach toys for the kids, well equipped kitchen, and the backyard BBQ. I also want to mention that the owners were very thoughtful and accommodating to our needs. It was a comfortable place that our family enjoyed. Thank you!
Wonderful place! Love it. Perfect for me. Returning in May and October/November. Can't wait!
Clean and comfy cozy. Super fun at the beach. Love the town and food and shopping. The owner is a pleasure to work with and helps make booking a breeze.
My husband and I took our two young children to Half Moon Bay and wanted a place close to the beach, tide pools, and town. We found it! The house was perfect for our family. It was a short drive to the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve Tide Pools, quick walk to the beach, and short drive to excellent restaurants and cute downtown. The house had everything we needed for our stay. The kids loved the games, art supplies, toys, and bunk beds! We had a great time with the fire pit outside and found the house to be well appointed and very comfortable. If our kids were older or could ride bikes we could easily have walked or rode bikes into town. The weekend was perfect and we will definitely be making it a yearly tradition. Thanks again!
We have become fans of VRBO and again were very pleased with our stay, this time in Half Moon Bay. The location is great and convenient to many activities/sights, the patio area perfect and the house was comfortable and so very well thought out as to layout, decor and expectations/needs of guests. It was just what a couple who is so tired of the winter on the east coast needed!!
The best part about this vacation rental is the location. The backyard with the BBQ and fire pit are a bonus, and it is just the right size for entertaining 2 families.
Tucked near to undeveloped coastal bluffs, this beach home provides excellent walking access to beaches, bluff top trails, paved bike trails. Easy access to Highway 1 makes more beaches, the beautiful Ritz-Carlton Hotel and Golf Links and a number of tasty dining options just minutes away.
