This recently remodeled 6 bedroom, 3 bath coastal home was once part of a prohibition-era train station. Located in tranquil Moss Beach, the house is only a block from the internationally recognized tide pools and beach at the James Fitzgerald protected Marine Reserve. It is a wonderful place to enjoy, walk, take the kids to learn about the tide pools, etc. It is in a beautiful and quiet neighborhood, with plenty of nearby restaurants and shopping. And don't forget to catch the yearly Half Moon Bay 'Art and Pumpkin Festival'. Also nearby is Mavericks, a world-famous surfing location that holds regular big-wave contests in Pillar Point Harbor, just north of Half Moon Bay at the village of Princeton-By-The-Sea.
The bedrooms are as follows:
One private queen bedroom and bath suite on the first floor. Upstairs you'll find the spacious master bedroom (and private bath) which contains a gorgeous 160-year-old hand carved bed, with an adjacent enclosed room containing an additional double, size antique, brass bed, which can be used as a private sixth bedroom. This room gets great sunlight. Also upstairs are three more spacious bedrooms, all with queen size beds. Altogether, you have 6 bedrooms.
Two full baths upstairs, one with claw foot tub and separate marble and travertine shower and a third vintage inspired bath with shower only. Rooms are spacious, and beds are comfortable. Ample room for dining, with separate common rooms for relaxing and socializing. You will love it.
If you enjoy hiking, nearby Montara Mountain is a popular outdoor recreation spot, and home to the old Highway 1.
The coastside hosts several state parks and beaches, including: Half Moon Bay State Beach, Venice State Beach, Poplar State Beach, San Gregorio State Beach, and Pomponio State Beach.

My home was not purchased to be a rental. When I don't have guests, I stay at the house, so that I can make sure that it is always welcoming to my guests.
I have lived in this house for almost 40 years, and have raised my children here. I worked as a stager (decorator) by trade and I have used my creative talent in decorating my home and garden, for my own enjoyment and that of my guests.
I rented this house for me and six friends for my birthday weekend. It was perfect for our needs and better than I expected in terms of sleeping accommodations. The linens are great, beds are super comfy. The house was very clean, quiet and cozy. We spent lots of time in the "piano room" socializing in front of the fire, and we enjoyed that we could all easily fit around the dining room table so we could eat together. Lots of great conversation and bonding, and we loved the easy walk to the shore. We had a wonderful time and staying in your house made all the difference. We would definitely come and and highly recommend your home! Thank you!
We had 12 adults and a 15 month old with us and the house was perfect for our needs. Very well furnished and comfortable with easy access to restaurants and the beach. The family gathered around the fire pit and enjoyed story telling be all, including a 3 year old. We would do it again in a heartbeat.
Our large extended family came from all parts of the country and stayed here for a family vacation. We so loved this home. Millie was a huge help with all our needs and gave us great advice at local spots. The house was spacious, sufficient, homey, and well located. We enjoyed our stay and would do it again.
What a wonderful property. The location was great. Close to shopping and good restaurants.
We were greeted by the owner Millie who showed us around the property. The house was tastefully decorated and the grounds were beautiful. We can't wait to go back.
We rented the house and separate cottage for our cousins and friends visiting from all over. Everyone couldn't stop talking about how perfect the house was! All the bedrooms had their own personality to them and the bathrooms were so classic, one with the pull chain porcelain throne and another with a beautiful deep bathtub.
My husband and I stayed in the cottage which was so amazing! From natural light that flowed from the ceiling and windows to the coziness of the bed, it was a great add on to the house itself! Thank you so much Millie! We had an amazing time :)
We had 10 women coming together for a baby shower weekend and this house was perfect! The house was wonderful - it had plenty of space in the common areas, including a large dining table. The kitchen is well equipped and we had everything we needed. The beds were comfy and there were plenty of blankets, pillows, and towels. We spent a lot of time outside in the enclosed courtyard area, which feels nice and private. The fire pit was really pleasant in the evening! We also used the indoor fireplace one evening, which was quite cozy. The location is close to walks/runs along cliffs above the water and a wonderful spot to watch the sunset. There were a couple places to get down to small beach areas, as well, within walking/running distance. A quick trip to the airport, it was really convenient for arrivals and departures. It's also just a short drive to Half Moon Bay!
Thank you, Millie, for providing the perfect spot for celebrating with my family of 12, ages 2 to 92. The little ones loved the outdoor space for play and stellar tide pooling close by, Great-Grandma appreciated the privacy of her own suite, the twenty-somethings wanted to move in permanently to the charming apartment, the guys were all over that fire pit and BBQ, and all of us were enthralled with your antiques and "beach-chic" decor. The whole gang echoed the eight-year-old's wish to stay another ten days and we will be back!
