6 Bedroom, 3 Bath house (+ detached cottage that can be rented separately)
Half Moon Bay Vacation Home for rent, only 20 miles from San Francisco, 6 miles from Half Moon Bay, and a scenic 50 mile drive from Santa Cruz California.
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.
We also have a separate cottage on the property that sleeps three and consists of one queen bed and one twin bed. The cottage rents for an additional $175 per night and requires a separate cleaning fee of $100. Please note in your inquiry if you wish to book the cottage and I can update the amount of your quote.
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.

Why Owner chose Moss 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.

Excellent Location and a Lovely Host
We rented this property for New Years Eve and we faced no problems at all. The location is close to everything Half Moon Bay has to offer and you are a two minute walk to a beautiful coastal view and was a great way to start the New Year. Millieanne was very sweet and made sure that we were comfortable and had no issues.
Thank you for taking the time to write such a complimentary review. I'm so glad you were happy with your accommodations. We continually work to keep the beach house inviting for our lovely guests. We hope you will consider staying with us again in the future. Blessings from the beach, Millieanne
The house is wonderful. I love older, historic houses with lots of charm and character and this one totally delivered. My family, we were eleven for Christmas, took lots of wonderful walks near the property. When they were out, I would prep for the next meal. In the kitchen, there is a vintage Wedgewood stove/oven. I wondered how that would go. It was wonderful. I love to cook and my special meals came out great. If you love the coast and historic charm, you won't be disappointed. The owner is so friendly and sweet. You can tell she loves the house too and wants you to have a great time and enjoy yourself. We certainly did.
Thank you for such a positive review of your stay at my beach house. It is very much appreciated! I'm so glad you had a wonderful Christmas stay. I hoped you would enjoy your holiday with your family. I am so glad you were my guest, and thank you for all your sweet exchanges before and during your stay.
Blessings from the beach, Millieanne
Great space and location
There were seven of us on a writing retreat, and the house was perfect for us--plenty of rooms, great light, and walking distance to the ocean and Distillery. Thank you, Millie Anne!
Thank you so much for the kind review. I appreciated having you as my guests. I'm so glad the house worked out well for your writing retreat, but I'm also glad that you made time to walk the lovely lovely paths to the ocean and the Distillery restaurant. I hope you and your group will consider making this an annual retreat. I would love to have you back!
Blessings from the beach, Millieanne
Felt like home!
We stayed at Millie and Bobbie Sue's homes (next door neighbors from each other) for our wedding weekend, and the stay itself was everything we could have asked for! While it was a bit hard to get ahold of Millie during the time leading up to our stay (we had lots of q's since it was for a large group and lots of logistics to figure out), everything went off without a hitch, and we were able to get hitched without any hiccups for our guests! The homes provided an amazing sense of closeness and it felt like we were all staying at a family members' home. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to stay here! Also, the proximity to the beach and amazing views from the cliffsides was a huge extra plus!
It was a great location, the house was big enough but I felt it could have been cleaner and better kept up. Landowner was very very sweet.
Host was fantastic
Millie went above and beyond under unusual circumstances to see that our stay was exceptional
World Famous Surf Location, "MAVERICKS" Well known to Surfers as the Best and most difficult surfing conditions, where only the Pro"s dare go. One mile from our beach house.
