We are a family of four: Matt, Fran, Devon and Dillon. We love the beach, and we love to travel! Matt works in IT, is British & recently became an American citizen and loves to surf. Fran grew up in New Jersey, recently retired from corporate life and enjoys running. Devon and Dillon were both born in the Bay Area, but named after a couple of our favorite places in the UK and the US.

Fran Hardcastle purchased this house in 2009

But we love it for its natural beauty, diversity, culture and innovation. Only in Pacifica can you enjoy the ocean waves and surf and get to SFO and one of the world's most beloved cities in 15 minutes!

We love this neighborhood and were specifically looking here for a home due to its proximity and walkability to the beach. We fell in love with the house for its openness, with its 16' ceilings and circular and flowing floor plan. Also, the house sits uniquely at the bottom of Cattle Hill, part of Sweeney Ridge Golden Gate National Park, so there is nothing behind the house except the Hill. From our viewing platform and various locations within the house, you can see and hear the ocean waves.

Spacious and well cared for home!

We only stayed for 3 nights as we were driving down the California coast with our friends from out of the country. My wife and I, our 2 kids (teenagers) and friends (also a family of four) had a wonderful time in this spacious and well kept house in Pacifica. The house had everything we needed and is conveniently located very close to San Francisco, the beach, and other attractions in the area. The owners were responsive, hospitable and provided a great information packet about the house, fun things to do in the area, restaurants, and other area recommendations. We would love come back to this lovely home!

Perfect family getaway

  • Submitted: Aug 13, 2013

This home in Pacifica is perfect for a laid back family get-away.  We had 4 adults and 4 teens and had plenty of room.  The location is very convenient to SFO Airport (10 min), San Francisco (15 min), beaches, redwood forests, and endless opportunities for outdoor fun and adventure, dining and shopping.  The owners were very responsive and friendly.  The property and neighborhood were quite nice, but not at all pretentious.  The neighbors gave us a warm greeting and offered any assistance or advice we might need.  Pacifica is true to its reputation as a respite from summer heat with foggy mornings and comfortably cool highs in July.  The home is a short walk from a lovely uncrowded beach and lots of hiking trails to strikingly scenic Pacific bluffs and tidal pools.  Keep your eyes open for dolphins and prairie dogs :-).  The kids had a great surfing lesson from Rod at Nor-Cal surfing (as recommended by the owners).  The short walk to the beach crosses a busy road, so you will need to accompany younger children.  We booked this home at the last minute when another owner cancelled on us and I'm now very glad that they did!
