Montara House Rental Photos and Description

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.

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 t-ball 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.
