We are long-time residents of the San Francisco Bay area and spent many weekend days in Half Moon Bay as our children were growing up; but, job commutes and our children's schools kept us from moving to the coast. Once our children were all grown we purchased our second home in Half Moon Bay to fully enjoy more time within walking distance of the ocean and living in a friendly small community.
The Owner purchased this house in 2004
Proximity and ease of access to the ocean along with the relaxing atmosphere of a small town that is focused on farming/retail businesses/tourism; while at the same time having less than a 1-hour drive to San Francisco. Also is less than a 1-hour drive to our other home.
Easy access, less than 10 minute walk to beach, drive into town of Half Moon Bay or drive to Princeton Harbor with excellent restaurants in both areas. Superb ocean views from several different rooms of our home so you can enjoy the changing weather patterns year-round without even leaving our house.
We were very fortunate to rent this home for a weekend. The pictures do not do justice – the home is gorgeous & the view is amazing. The house was very clean & comfortable and my guests enjoyed the spaciousness which gave them a feel of privacy. My guests commented that upon entering the home they did not feel as if they were in a strangers home – it felt like entering their own home which helped everyone relax & enjoy the time there. For those like myself who love to cook, you will enjoy the spacious kitchen & the dining area with two tables was perfect for serving all we prepared. The owner, Jim, is very enjoyable to work with. He was very responsive to the questions we had prior to checking in and was helpful while showing us around his home. Without question - we would rent this home again in a heartbeat. Thank you Jim for opening your home for us to enjoy!
We, a party of 10 persons, were in Half Moon Bay for my daughter's wedding and stayed at Jim's home for 3 nights. We found it to be impeccably clean and hospitable, where we felt at home away from home. All amenities were great, the outdoors are as beautiful as the indoors. Jim was there to welcome us and showed us around the house, which is a big asset. It was one of the best place for our family stay and we shall certainly return to this lovely home on our next visit to Half Moon Bay. Thank you Jim.
Jim's house is a perfect size for a large family gathering. We didn't have enough people to fill the rooms! We had 8 people from 65 yrs. to 12 yrs. of age. Jim the owner met us upon arrival and graciously gave us a tour. He was generous in spirit and offered us access to paper products in the supply room, coffee in the kitchen, and bikes in the garage. Since he and his family stay there themselves, it has a much loved, homey quality. Everything was clean and inviting. The neighborhood was quiet. The only downside was that the house is located on the opposite side of the major road from the ocean. Crossing the road by foot is treacherous, and by car tricky at best.
Just spent 4 days with my sister and 3 sisters in law in this gorgeous home in Half Moon Bay, Calif.
The house is beautiful, peaceful, and was the perfect home base for all of our Coastal activities.
We saw whales every day, ate in wonderful restaurants, traveled up and down the "Slow Coast", and had the very best time together. (Highlights were the Harley Goat Farm in Pescadero, shopping in Half Moon Bay, strolling along looking for whales and shells at beautiful beaches, and doing the Devil's Slide Walk--Wow!)
Jim, the owner, is fabulous to work with and easily available.
Our first All Girls time together was truly memorable.
We all highly recommend this property. (Jim and Rosalie--thanks again for the wine--what a treat!)
THIS IS A GREAT PLACE FOR FAMILY GET TOGETHERS AND A GOOD JUMPING OFF BASE TO SEE THE SIGHTS OF SAN FRANCISCO!
THE 48 HR HOP ON AND HOP OFF BUS PASS TO SEE ALCATRAZ ISLAND AND OTHER SIGHTS IN S.F. WAS GREAT! (TAKE A TWENTY MINUTE RIDE TO DROP OFF YOUR CAR AT THE HILSDALE MALL PARKING LOT AND THEN TAKE A NEARBY CAL TRAINS RIDE AND A BUS RIDE TO FISHERMANS WHARF AND ALCATRAZ ISLAND TOURS.)
AFTER TOURING THIS VERY WARM HOME IN HALFMOON BAY WAS A WELCOME PLACE TO RETURN TO AND TO RELAX!
LOCAL RESTAURANTS NEARBY, WHILE NOT GOURMET, WERE JUST GREAT, NOT TOO TOURISTY, AND THE FOOD WAS GOOD!
SAM'S IN DOWNTOWN HALFMOON BAY AND THE SMALL LOCAL AIRPORT CAFE ON HWY 1 WERE GREAT FOR BASIC GOOD BREAKFASTS! BUT THE HOME'S OWNER CAN RECOMMEND, I AM SURE, BETTER PLACES.
THE HOME'S OWNER, JIM WEHRLY, IS A GREAT GUY AND, EASY TO WORK WITH-EVEN AFTER WE FORGOT TO PUT ON THE STREET CURB, THE RECYCLE AND TRASH BINS. SORRY JIM!
I HAD MY 72ND BIRTHDAY PARTY WITH THE EUROPEAN SIDE OF MY FAMILY. IT WAS WONDERFUL AND THIS HOME ADDED SO MUCH TO IT!
This house was perfect, the views are beautiful and the property is very accommodating for a large group. The best part about the house was how easy it was working with Jim. He is a great guy, very approachable and reliable. We had a great time and would recommend it immensely.
Our family spent my daughter's wedding weekend in Half Moon Bay. Eight adults shared this beautiful home and had the very best visit. The home is perfect for cooking, visiting, going to the beach, and exploring the area. Jim is wonderful to work with and the home is equipped with everything you can think of to make yourself comfortable. We are already planning on making a return trip to Half Moon Bay and will definitely stay in this home when we do.
