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 1975

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.

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.

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

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

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.

Over the past years, I have stayed at this beautiful coastal home in Montara many times. I find myself recommending it to friends and local visitors as a jewel in this seaside area. The views are incredible, the accomodations cozy and lovely. It is a great place to gather for a conference or a relaxing stay. Nancy and Gary are gracious and thoughtful and make you truly like their place is your own. Don't miss a chance to see the coastside in its true splendor and style.

great place right on the Pacific, gracious host and hostess, artistic design, in easy driving distance to San Francisco as well as the lovely coast down to Santa Cruz boardwalk. Great for families and groups, especially for a work group or offsite meeting. Hostess Nancy offers facilitation extras that are world class. And a great coffee shop a 5 minute walk away. Excellent restaurants nearby too.

We are unlike other properties due to our on-the-ocean location AND we offer a menu of special services such as a masseuse who will come to the house or use her space a few blocks from us. A yoga instructor will come to you or meet you at a nearby yoga studio, a personalized piece of artwork that is created with our in-house artist on the topic of your vision/dreams of your future. 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.
