Half Moon Bay House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom , 2 + 1/2 Bath Beach House Views Of Beach And Cypress Tree Forest!

SEAL COVE BEACH HOUSE

$350 per week night.

This Home is new on VRBO, we welcome you to this comfortable, spacious beach house with amazing views.

This home is directly in front of the spectacular Seal Cove Beach, awesome ocean views, adjacent to the Cypress Bluff Trail along the Marine Reserve. Beautiful views of Seal Cove Beach from the upstairs and downstairs. This Beach House is across from the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve. The Cypress Beach House is the perfect location for your quiet beach vacation. Watch whales from the upstairs deck, walk along the park trails and saunter down to the beach only yards from the front door to watch seals or go tide pooling.

This is a tranquil quiet neighborhood within steps to Seal Cove Beach across from the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve. Please do not inquire if you are having a large gathering, party, wedding, or reception.

The furnishings and touches are all beach inspired. We provide the most comfortable beds you've ever slept on. You will appreciate the soft white 600 count white linens on all the beds. Everything you expect to find in a fine hotel and more, will be available at the Beach House; lots of towels, blow dryer, shampoo, etc.

A huge bonus is beach access and amazing walking paths through an old Cypress tree forest right outside the front door. Walk through this breathtaking forest overlooking Seal Cove Beach and watch the surf from above or explore the tide pools and harbor seals below on the sandy beach. You are also within walking distance to Maverick Surf Break. The bluffs are perfect for mountain biking or hiking. This area is a well kept secret - at least during the week when most visitors park on the other side of the reserve.

This fully equipped home, has a spacious kitchen which opens up to the living / dining / family rooms - all with the breath taking white water views. The Cypress forest views on one side, the ocean views and sunsets on the other side. The clean smells of the Beach and salt air, and the soothing, smells of the cypress trees are captured throughout this magical Beach Home.

The master bedroom has a king bed with added memory foam, for a comfortable sleep, with high grade bedding. The Spacious Master Bedroom has its own Private Master Bath with Peek a Boo Ocean Views from the Comfy Bed!

The second and third bedrooms, share a full bath downstairs. Second bedroom has a king bed with the high grade linens and memory foam for your added comfort. Third bedroom has a queen bed with high grade linens. There is also an air bed (queen) for the kiddies.

Laundry is downstairs, with a washer and dryer. The spiral stair case leads upstairs to the great room, kitchen and half bath. There are two decks, one off of the living room area overlooking the cypress trees. The second deck is off of the dining area overlooking the unobstructed ocean views. A weber gas grill is waiting for you to cook something scrumptious.

For a long or short weekend or a holiday week at this beach house , this treasure has something for everybody. Plenty of ocean views, a comfortable well stocked Beach Home. Once you park your car, there is NO Reason to get in your car again. You are able to walk to the beach, walk to the historic Moss Beach Distillery Restaurant and the Marine Reserve, or hike to Princeton By the Sea Harbor for fish and chips. Or stay home, watch the whales go by while you are lazing on the back deck.

About Fred Bollman

We fell in love with this house as newlyweds, raised two children and now a grandchild. We have loved this house for almost 3 decades. The magic of this place is undeniable and it is fun to share with other families.

Fred Bollman purchased this house in 1986

Why Fred Bollman chose Half Moon Bay

Where else can you find tidepools, the beach, and a magical forest right outside your front door?!

What makes this house unique

This is the only place I know of where you can be cooking in the kitchen or reading a book by the fireplace and still feel like you are at the beach! That is how amazing the view is.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Moss Beach Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 7 nights and had a lovely time. Chilly winds, but lovely walks through the Reserve and great time combing through the tide pools. We enjoyed cocktails on the deck in the afternoons. Very quiet. The beds were comfortable and all of the amenities were provided. We especially liked being able to walk to and from the Moss Beach Distillery. The food and ambiance was great.

60th Birthday Celebration

  • 5 of 5

There couldn't have been a more perfect home for our birthday celebration! The views out of every window were incredible. Being so close to the preserve and the beach was such a treat and the hosts were so attentive to our needs -- it all made our stay perfect. We will definitely be back.

Renewed Friendships at the Beach House

  • 4 of 5

The Beach House at Moss Beach was a wonderful location with easy beach access. The views from the house, the cliff, and the beach were fantastic! The reserve's volunteer gave us great information when viewing the tide pools. All seven of us loved preparing breakfasts and dinners in the well equipped kitchen. The dining room table was a great place to gather for gourmet food and a fun game of Mexican train. The Distillery Restaurant was close and the lunch was delicious. The "Flying Fish Grill" in Half Moon Bay was a fabulous restaurant to meet and have a delicious lunch. We went south on 1 to enjoy the walk to view the elephant seals at Ano Nuevo. Fantastic place for retired friends to have fun and laughter!

Spectacular Location-Ocean Views, steps from the beach and a marine reserve to explore!

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous place to sit and watch the ocean and sunset from the deck or the family room, yet steps away from a stairway to the beach and marine reserve with fabulous tide pools to explore. During the week, the reserve has docents who are a wealth of information about the reserve. The home is perfectly set up- living area upstairs with the great ocean views and bedrooms and bathrooms downstairs with cozy comfortable beds and bedding. The kitchen has plenty of dishes, glasses, pots and pans, utensils, etc. There is a long family table for everyone to sit and eat or play games. They have a fireplace to enjoy if you are so inclined. A small TV is in the family room, which we did use as the football playoffs were on that weekend, and there is plenty of seating around the TV for people to watch comfortably. A car is needed to get to the grocery store and many restaurants, although there is one that is a short walk from the home. The home has lots of brochures about local places to eat or visit. We enjoy the sushi restaurant on Main Street in Half Moon Bay, but there are many seafood restaurants in the area and most restaurants have fish/seafood on the menu. The is a place to come to again and again! It is a perfect spot to enjoy the Northern California Coast and is very close to San Francisco as well. Our family of six adults was very comfortable and we plan to return!

HEAVEN IS REAL!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we stepped in the beach house and smelled fresh tuberose, we knew we were home. We dropped off our luggage in each well appointed bedroom downstairs and took the spiral oak stair case up to the most amazing panoramic view I have ever seen in a private home. We opened all the windows to let in the sound of crashing waves. It literally took 5 minutes for all of us to run down to the beach and linger well after sunset.

Next on the agenda was fish & chips & calamari at Barbara's Fish Trap - where the locals go for their fix. It was amazing. We went to bed in soft luxurious beds covered with white blankets and comforters with 600 thread count duvets. We made sure all the windows were opened and slept like babies.

We woke up to Maxwell House coffee while never my favorite was delicious while gazing at the white water waves and taking in the fresh ocean breezes. This home had everything; a waffle maker, coffee maker, All Clad pots and pans, new unopened oatmeal, white china, new silverware, and an incredible omelet pan.

A bottle of wine, a gift from the owner was left on the table with a bouquet of lilies and tuberose. We spent the day hiking the bluffs and checking out the fish tacos at the Flying Fish in Half Moon Bay. We also stopped at the Wine & Cheese Shop on Main Street which has a glorious selection of wines from all over the world with the most knowledgeable employees.

Two days is not enough. two weeks might get me to go into San Francisco which is only 25 minutes away. The best of both worlds is right here at the Seal Cove Beach House.
