Overview

Montara House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A NON-SMOKING PROPERTY. SMOKING IS NOT ALLOWED ANYWHERE ON THE PROPERTY.

Yes you can have it all!

Perched atop a hillside with breathtaking ocean views and located on a cul-de-sac that leads into an enchanted forest, lies a hidden jewel. Imagine waking up in a home surrounded by trees but within sight of the water. Have your first cup of coffee on the deck while gazing at the ocean and experiencing the natural beauty of the coastside. Perhaps you'll see the pair of Red-tailed Hawks who nest in a neighboring tree during parts of the spring and summer, or the hummingbirds that frequent our terrace. Spend your morning exploring the forest and miles of hiking trails, or stroll down to the beach and world-class tide pools. Then, it's a 2 minute drive to Princeton Harbor with fresh seafood, restaurants and even kayaking! Or, maybe a 10 minute drive into Half Moon Bay for unique shopping and fantastic restaurants. But the adventure isn't over! Jump in your car and in no time at all you're in San Francisco enjoying the theater or any of its fantastic attractions. On the other hand, maybe you spend the entire day on the terrace, curled up with a book on the couch, or perhaps watching a movie downstairs in the private theater. Whether you go out or stay in, your coastside experience will create memories of a lifetime.

About Allison

Alex and I have owned this house for over 12 years and we love escaping to the coast. As the children get older, and we spend more time in the city at volleyball and soccer, we find less opportunity to get away. Several friends commented that it was a shame that more people don't know about the magic of this beautiful home and the surrounding area. We believe Moss Beach and the coast are hidden treasures waiting to be discovered.

Allison purchased this house in 2002

Why Allison chose Montara

We were looking for a quiet getaway from the City. We are thrilled with this home and all that the coast has to offer. When my husband (Alex) was a child, he used to intern at the Steinhart Aquarium - Alex has always had a passion for the ocean. Our family loves to go tide pooling at the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve - this is about as good as it gets! Our home is an 8 minute walk to world class tide pools and beaches.

What makes this house unique

The views are spectacular. The outdoor terrace has comfortable couches to relax and take a nap. We love hanging out on the deck, enjoying a glass of wine, and watching the kids play in the jacuzzi. The house is made for relaxing and spending time with family and friends. We designed the home with the idea of being together, but also wanting some quiet time alone. There are plenty of spots to curl up and read a book. There is a fabulous forest at the end of our street and it has a tree swing that the kids just love.

Great Girls Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My four sister's and I stayed four nights to getaway and celebrate a 50th birthday and time away from work, family and kids...awesome! This house is just perfect in all aspects. We cooked one night in the spacious chefs kitchen, relaxed by the fire and stared out at the beautiful ocean views. We hiked the enchanted forest, Fitzgerald point and spent a day in SF. But what we loved most of all was just hanging out and being together at this amazing house. Allison and Alex make their home feel welcoming and warm with all the amenities and lots of space to be together or tuck away in a private area to read a book or take a nap. I never wanted to leave! Thanks for everything I will be back!

A luxurious getaway spot

  • 5 of 5
This is an amazing property and Alison was wonderful to work with. I booked it for a relaxing girls weekend, and it suited our needs perfectly. Beautifully decorated with luxe bedding, spa robes and thoughtful extras, we felt as if we were staying in a 5 star hotel. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking with lots of extras in the pantry, a great array of dishes and glassware and top notch appliances. The house itself is very large, with lots of space for everyone to congregate together and little areas for when you want to slip away by yourself. The ambiance was wonderful, and Alison generously added some personal touches as well- snacks and champagne in the fridge for when we arrived, movie theater treats, and fresh flowers. She was responsive when we had a question and just generally very welcoming and friendly. I highly recommend this lovely home and I hope to be back!

Great house!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed staying at this Moss Beach home. The owners are so attentive and helpful - quick to answer if you have any questions/concerns. We didn't have many at all because they also made the house (and everything in it) so accessible and easy to use (with clear instructions and "how-to" videos readily available). It's also a beautiful and comfortable house - I could live there! Great place, great visit - we totally recommend :)

Wonderful stay at Moss Beach

  • 5 of 5
The home sits atop a hill overlooking the ocean, the photos in the listing are a good representation. The three floors allowed privacy for each family unit, and our two 6-year olds loved the lower-level bunk beds. We were so busy sightseeing in San Francisco (Alcatraz, Fire truck ride over Golden Gate Bridge), going to the beach, and especially the kids loved the rope swing in the forest just up the block, that we did not have enough time to enjoy the home's amenities. The hot tub and outdoor seating were inviting, as well as the theater room. The home is decorated nicely, spotlessly clean, and has a large island kitchen with all the amenities. The owner was very attentive to our needs, texting us on a regular basis to be sure all was well. We would highly recommend this home to all looking for a quiet spot with many activities close by. Additional comment: Pasta Moon was an exceptional dining experience for our anniversary celebration, and Coastside Photography for our family photo on the bluffs was an added bonus.

Great Place For A Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful large house, with five bedrooms and four bathrooms, located in a quiet coastal town not far from San Francisco. The owners tries to make sure that the house has everything you will need for a relaxing stay. The house has a wonderful kitchen, which we appreciated, as we cooked breakfasts and dinners for our large family group every day. The adults enjoyed relaxing in the Jacuzzi every night, and the teenagers loved the movie room and the candy and popcorn provided by the owner. We would love to come back here again sometime!

Amazing home!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week at Allison and Alex's home to celebrate my wife's 40th birthday. We invited family and a few select friends...the seven adults and three kids had an absolute blast! We spent time in the magic forest, Moss Beach Park, Fitzgerald Marine Reserve, the hottub, and just hanging out in the more than comfortable home. We had easy access to the city, Half Moon Bay, surfing, and even made a day trip to Muir Woods National Monement. Alison was an amazing host...so accommodating! We look forward to returning!

Map

The house is on a cul-de-sac that leads to a forest with a tree swing and hiking trails with ocean view vistas. We are also less than a 10 minute walk to the beach and world-class tide pools (Fitzgerald Marine Reserve). The house is a 5 minute walk to the Moss Beach Park, a fantastic playground for the kids, and a 5 minute drive to Princeton Harbor (fresh seafood, restaurants, fishing boats, kayaking and whale watching).
