Our Sea Glass Cottage was built in 1906. This location was a destination spot for weekenders in the early 1900's. Guests traveled by train from San Francisco and Santa Cruz to visit this amazing place referred to as 'Nye's Reef'. At one time the property boasted a restaurant, hotel, bunk houses, and a tavern. Most of the buildings are still standing. This oceanfront cottage has been visited by many well-known individuals over the years including Jack London and Luther Burbank. A little inspiration! The setting makes it ideal for couples or individuals seeking solitude and serenity on the San Mateo Coast overlooking at the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve.

Aloha, ~Carol & Jerome
Jerome & I have lived on the coast for 36 years. Jerome visited the area as a youngster with his grandparents in the 60's, fishing and playing on the beaches. I grew up in the South Pacific, my bearings have always been the ocean. The beauty of the coast, the open hills, miles of beaches, and isolation from the fast pace of city life helped us decide to make this place our home. Our choice to live and raise our children here is undeniably our our best decision! ~Carol
Of the many places around the world we've been fortunate to visit and/or live, this spot is an incredible gem! The views are panoramic, unspoiled and unsurpassed. It is too special not to share with others.
The awe-inspiring sunsets viewed from the garden area are difficult to describe, they must be experienced. Exploring Fitzgerald Marine Reserve tide pools at low tide is not to be missed. Low tide occurs twice daily. Walking trails along the bluffs above the marine preserve and Seal Cove Beach are magnificent. A quick 10-minute walk through a 100 year-old forest is a fun adventure, ending at the Distillery Restaurant with its legend of the Blue Lady.
Our stay at your cottage was more than words can say! My husband and I were in great need of a getaway. But in no way did we feel our vacation would be soo beautiful & romantic! This place was perfect to re-kindle our love!!! I left all the stress of life on the plane. Please know that we will return and can't wait to tell our friends & family!
Thank you so much.
This place has everything we wanted in a relaxing weekend get away. We also brought our small dog with us and he had a great time.
Moss Beach is a 5 minute drive north (dogs allowed on leash).
There is a marine preserve with tide pools that is a 5 minute walk from the cottage (dogs not allowed).
There is a Cypruss Tree Forrest that is a 7 minute walk from the cottage (dogs allowed on some parts).
And there is a nice restaurant called the Distillery that is a 15 minute walk from the cottage (dogs allowed on patio). They even had a dog menu for our pug!
Our family had a great time and will definitely be back to visit in the future.
So awesome that you can hear and see the waves crashing at night from your room or outside viewing area. :)
My friend and I stayed in Jerorme and Carol's cottage for two nights. The cottage was well equipped and spotless. The outside common area with comfortable seating and a gas fire pit was a great place to hang out in the evening and meet new friends. Thanks to both of you for being such great hosts.
What a wonderful little cottage. Thank you for allowing us to stay with you. I am looking forward to coming back when it is a bit warmer. You are a lovely host. Your cottage is adorable and was just the right fit. I hope we turned the heater off!
Overall, we enjoyed our stay at the Sea Glass Cottage. The view is just as shown in the photos and the fire pit on chilly days/nights was wonderful. Carol welcomed us with a plate of warm cookies, which was greatly appreciated. A problem with the key not working was quickly resolved by Carol and Jerome who came right over to fix the issue. For the most part, the cottage was well kept and clean. Note that until construction finishes on the house next door, you may hear hammering and drilling during the day, but it is wonderfully quiet at night. The location can't be beat. Short walks to the cypress grove and beaches and very convenient to many attractions along the coast.
Seaglass cottage was amazing! I spent a great, relaxing long weekend here. The tide pools (3 minute walk) were incredible--saw lots of sea life and harbor seals on the beach! The walk along Fitzgerald Marine Preserve to Moss Beach Distillery (10 minute walk) was absolutely beautiful. I brought my dog. Dogs were not allowed on the beach where the tide pools were and not on some of the trails along the coast, but that was ok. The closest dog-friendly beach was a 2 minute drive north and we visited there and had a great time. The pier was about a 5 minute drive away and we were able to get fresh crab off the boats and amazing salt water taffy. When not exploring, it was wonderful to just sit outside and watch the waves, birds, and boats with a cup of coffee or glass of wine. Beautiful and relaxing.
The cottage is next to another cottage (Driftwood Cottage) and both cottages are on the owner's property. So, while there is some privacy, you will see neighbors fairly often coming and going. This was not a problem at all for me. Carol and Jerome are great hosts and made me feel immediately comfortable. The cottage was very clean and everything you could want was there. Wifi worked very well. I will definitely be visiting again.
There are no words to describe how incredible the locatiion and cottages are just perfrect. Paradise! The beds are the most comfy luxurious I have ever been in. The view is breathtaking. The kind of place you never want to leave. AFFORDABLE!!compared to many other hotels and b&b in the area!! please keep this place around for all to enjoy. Its a most memorable place that will bring people back to the coast time and time again. We rented both of their cotages for our familys to get together. MY mother and father in law had tears of joy when they saw the place. Their comment was best vacation ever (they are 79)
