About Nancy & Gary

Nancy is an artist, actor and author. Gary owns a coin-operated telescope business. We are both affiliated with the Bainbridge Graduate Institute (a Green MBA program). We love having visitors and have hosted many events in our home. Gary is from Hollywood and Nancy is from Des Moines, Iowa. Go figure. Gary was the first director of the Institute of Noetic Sciences. Nancy worked as a corporate consultant for many years. She currently has a one-woman theatrical show in San Francisco.

Nancy & Gary purchased this house in 1976

Why Nancy & Gary chose Montara

This is possibly the most beautiful location in the world. No exaggeration. We have updated our home to make it especially beautiful, comfortable and welcoming.

What makes this house unique

Beaches on either side of us, bluff over the ocean, you can hear the ocean lull you to sleep. Wonderful restaurants nearby, only 30 minutes to San Francisco, hour's drive to Santa Cruz. We can arrange a total spa experience with massage, Yoga, Feldenkrais, meditation in house or at nearby spas and Yoga studios.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The view from this gorgeous home is fantastic; ocean views across the whole west side of the house, gulls flying by at eye level. We even saw whales. Very artistic and elegant furnishings, murals on the walls, and a kitchen that even included a juicer and Cuisinart. We especially appreciate the warm welcome and friendly manner of our hosts. They provided information about local restaurants and nature walks, and made us feel very welcome from the start. We will be back!

Amazing stay oceanside

  • 5 of 5
I was looking for a relaxing, oceanfront property to rent for my family to get together for a rare week together. This property surpassed all of my very high expectations. The view was amazing and the house was top notch. Gary and Nancy were very welcoming, and quickly became like family. They made extra effort, however, to make sure we had our privacy. The location really is amazing (the photographs do not do it justice!). There were great running trails close by and great places to eat, as well as a lighthouse within walking distance (which my nephew loved). We were considering one of the local oceanfront hotels, but after experiencing true relaxation at this property we will be back many times in the future. There really is nothing like this place out there that I have experienced.

What a great experience!

  • 5 of 5
My fiancé & I rented this home for the few days before our wedding on the coast. It is everything that is shown on this site and more! Nancy greeted us and gave us information about the home and usage as well as showing us there was plenty of dishes/silverware for our large group. We had a dinner event for our family which was about 30 people and then brunch the day after the wedding. There was plenty of room for everyone & it was wonderful that we could open the sliding glass doors and people could flow out onto the deck with the wonderful ocean view. We will definitely stay here again even if we're not having a large group for meals!

Peaceful and Beautiful and Clean

  • 5 of 5
The owners allowed us to have our wedding here, what a gift they are, truly amazing people! They went out of their way making sure the experience would be great, a perfect blend of maintaining privacy and being helpful at the same time. It was perfect for the 25 people who filled the home. The ceremony had the ocean as a backdrop with the lighthouse and cliffs to either side. The dinner reception was indoors. The chef was comfortable in their gourmet kitchen and we had compliments from the unmarried guests as to how "this is how they would want their wedding." Outside of the wedding, my family stayed in the house and had only nice things to say about the comfort and of the home and bedrooms. It was walking distance to cafes and short drive to Half Moon and Pacifica.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5
My family and I absolutely loved this place, it has been more the 6 months since we stayed there and I have such fond memories of our stay there. It is very clean, very tranquil, very relaxing, the views are absolutely spectacular. The owners are a joy to deal with and wonderful people. I would absolutely stay there again, as a matter of fact writing this review makes me long to go back.

Extremely Relaxing

  • 5 of 5
Gary & Nancy - Thanks again for opening up your beautiful home for our stay. I can't remember having spent a few days anywhere and feeling so relaxed in such a peaceful, spectacular setting. Your photos don't do it justice. It is a beautiful home, but just as importantly is owned and managed by very special people. We much appreciated the gracious, uncomplicated, and accommodating manner in which you handled everything on relatively short notice. The home was clean and elegant, yet lived-in (not stale), and the serenity and views unforgettable. The sight of the lighthouse on the bluff, combined with the sound of the surf, was the perfect beginning to each day, while the sunset over the water was the perfect ending. Can't say enough to recommend your property to potential future clients! Thanks again, we will be back!

Awesome view of Ocean

  • 5 of 5
This place is wonderful! Stayed here a week, our annual Sister Trip and had a simply wonderful stay. Great views of the ocean from so many rooms, it was so peaceful, relaxing and exhilarating all at the same time. Each bed was so comfortable and that steam shower - Oh Boy, what a treat. You are so convenient to visit up and down the coast and to San Francisco as well. Many great places to eat nearby, one was our favorite for breakfast and lunch - Gherkin's Sandwich Shop. Huge portions and we loved everything we tried. If you are looking at this place for your stay - I say do it, reserve it. We were all so very ahppy we did.

This 'vision map' created by Nancy Margulies is a skill she developed over decades of working with individuals and corporations to 'map their future'. Other options, for woman's groups or bridesmaids groups: a lesson in belly dancing complete with costumes provided for the event.
