Comments from past guests:

'We just wanted to thank you for the use of your house in Half Moon Bay. We did many

things while in the area, Alcatraz, Muir Woods, Wine Country, Fishermans Wharf Etc.

But when I asked our family what was their favorite thing, they said 'where we stayed'

It really is a nice place, and so peaceful. Everyone had their own space...'

This getaway is perfect for mature adults who want a relaxing upscale environment and amenities in a quiet community setting. Two skylights and surrounding windows provide natural light in the vaulted ceiling main living area, situated on the second floor, which gives its one of the best views in the gated community of Ocean Colony.

Each large uniquely decorated bedroom has view of either the fairway or mountains and is appointed with a quality queen-size bed and a full private bathroom. Hardwood floors abound. There is a balcony off the living/dining area and garden patio area off the downstairs bedrooms. A large drive plus a two-car garage provide off street parking. The residence is just a five-minute walk to the famed Ritz Carlton Hotel and ocean walkway.

As my guest and hopefully future friend, I am committed to make your stay enjoyable while respecting the quiet enjoyment of my neighbors and rules that govern the community.

General Location: Half an hour from San Francisco, San Francisco International Airport (SFO), Stanford and Palo Alto. Half Moon Bay is known for its hiking, biking, surfing, and kayaking, and picturesque downtown area with its local restaurants, shops, music, and theater. This coastal home is in the private gated community of Ocean Colony, and is a five-minute walk to the Ritz Carlton, beach and walking trails. Nearby beaches include Montara, Moss Beach, Half Moon Bay, San Gregorio, and Pescadero. This is also a great jumping off point for day trips to the wine country, and the cities of Santa Cruz and Monterey, Muir Woods, Stinson Beach and Stanford.

Nearby is Princeton Harbor, a working harbor where you can buy your fresh/smoked fish, go on a deep-sea fishing trip, or fish/crab from the pier. The protected beaches within the harbor are wonderful for children, and the bluff walks above provide views of the world-famous Mavericks surfing area, elegant cypresses, and pounding waves. A flat paved 14-mile long bicycle trail runs from the Harbor along the beaches past Half Moon Bay and other trails are to be found along the bluffs, and coastal mountains.

The seaside town of Half Moon Bay with its galleries and restaurants are a short five minute drive north. Enjoy the culinary talents of chefs at a host of restaurants, like the Navio at the Ritz-Carlton, or the award-winning Cetrella, or Zagat-rated Cafe Gibraltor, or watch the sunset from the Moss Beach Distillery or go to Duarte's in Pescadero and order their delectable artichoke soup.

Further south are San Gregorio and Pescadero with their beautiful beaches, bird marshes and Pigeon Point Lighthouse. Ano Nuevo State Park is home to the famous Elephant Seals (November through March reservations required). Sunny Santa Cruz has wonderful surfing beaches and Boardwalk is a short hour south. 20-min East you will find yourself in the redwoods, Skyline Blvd with its panoramic vistas of the Peninsula. Easy day trips include Napa/Sonoma Valley, Monterey Bay, Sacramento and Sausalito/Stinson Beach/Muir Woods.

Close by are several science/tech museums (Exploratorium/ San Jose Tech Museum), the Santa Cruz Boardwalk, Great America.

Wonderful place to stay for a vacation

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough about this home...it was clean, in a quiet safe area, close to San Francisco, had beautiful walking paths and the town was quaint with unique shops. The beds were very comfortable and it had lots of kitchen and dining room space to enjoy visiting together...Jeff was wonderful to work with and is honest and trustworthy

Half Moon Bay

  • 4 of 5

The home is located in a great location, walking distance from the Ritz Carlton property. There was plenty of room in the house for the whole family, with private bathrooms for all the rooms. The kitchen and bathroom are dated. Overall the house was comfortable, suited our needs and Jeff was great to work with.

Sibling trip

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a nice place to for my two brothers and I to celebrate a 60th birthday. We also wanted to be fairly close to San Francisco and family in Portollo Valley. The location was the perfect distance between all our destinations. Being the only female, my list of needs included separate bathrooms, close to the ocean, and enough room to allow my two brothers and I some space apart. All my needs were met and exceeded my expectations! After picking up my brother from SFO, we enjoyed the Muir Forest and San Francisco's Fishermen's Wharf. The drive to the rental home was less than an hour. Good security and no problems with the guard. The neighborhood is gorgeous and quiet. The view of the golf course is pretty, although I could not see the ocean as title states. The walk to the ocean is 5-10 minutes depending on how fast you walk. Amazing views and photo opts behind the Ritz with a nice outside patio (if one would like to pay for an expensive drink). I would vote for sitting outside on the rentals homes great patio and sipping on a nice glass of wine. The house is kept up very well and even had a hair dryer (which I forgot) in the master bathroom. All the amenities of a hotel were there- except maybe the fancy soap and shampoos. We each had our own room and each of us thought our beds were comfortable. We cooked a nice meal and were pleasantly surprised to find more than enough utensils, pots and pans, serving dishes along with containers to save leftovers. The layout of the home is beautiful and unique; I loved the tri-level kind of look. But, a warning for people with bad knees or hips this could be a challenging house. The house is also close to a grocery store, gas station and such.

The owner was quick to respond to my questions and I received my deposit (less housekeeping fee) within days of our departure. I would definitely recommend this property. It is a little more than I wanted to spend, but was well worth the cost!

Great family getaway with beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great experience at this house in Half Moon Bay. It's a beautiful home with quite the view of the golf course and ocean. The house itself is well maintained with comfortable beds and a big dining room table to fit a large group. There is easy access to a bike path and you can take a nice stroll to the beach to watch an amazing sunset. It is centrally located between San Francisco and Santa Cruz, so you can visit many places during your stay.

This house is also in a 24 hour,employee attended, gated community which gives you a great sense of peace. The only slightly negative thing I can mention is that you have to "announce" yourself with each entry. This is in no way a problem if you stay put but if you're not the patient type, it could get monotonous. The employees are friendly and it's their job, so relax and be grateful for the extra security.

Jeff, the owner, is very friendly and super easy to work with. We had an issue with one of the blinds and he was there the very next morning to fix the problem. This is service that can truly be appreciated.

I would not hesitate for a minute to recommend this rental to family and friends!

Thanks for all the hospitality Jeff.

NDMU 2016 Familia

  • 4 of 5

We were four families traveling from different parts of the United States to attend the 2016 NDMU Graduation. We decided on this location as it was a short 30 minute drive to the ceremony. However to our surprise the property and the spectacular views it has to offer well surpassed anything we thought we'd have. We were 8 adults and definitely had enough space for all of us, in fact there was definitely enough room for more. I would suggest if you decide to stay on this property you take the 10 minute walk down to the beach it will not be disappointment.

There were enough towels, linens as well odds and end things that I guess previous renters have left. Look through all cabinets as you will find things you may not need to spend extra money on at the grocery store.

My suggestions would be to upgrade on the pots and pans for cooking and the outdoor patios need a bit more care!

We enjoyed this property!!

Thank you
