Nancy & Gary purchased this House in 1976
Why Nancy & Gary chose Montara
This is our home. We live upstairs and welcome guests to use the first floor. This is one of the most beautiful spots on earth and it is a short drive to San Francisco or south to Palo Alto or Santa Cruz. You can't get closer to the ocean without getting wet. The views are spectacular. We are a few minutes away from one of the largest tide pools in the nation. Hiking, beaches, redwood forests, all nearby.
What makes this House unique
Extras that we offer: Spa package week end including private yoga classes, massage, couples get-away, small meetings or special gatherings. Nancy specializes in drawing a visual representation of people's personal vision or a couple's shared vision. This is a service she offers to interested guests.

The property is immaculate and the views can not be described. The house has more than enough room and extra amenities as in steam shower, massage chair and gas fireplace! The owners stayed in contact welcomed us with a personal sign and recommended numerous local restaurants. The experience could not have been better. Well if we would have been able to stay longer perhaps!
THANKS for the lovely review. We enjoyed hosting you and hope to see you again!
The views from the house are spectacular! Nancy greeted us with a precious welcome sign and nice overview of the home. The kitchen and dining in areas are quite large, and the bedrooms comfortable. Front bedroom gets quite a bit of traffic noise from adjacent, heavily traveled road. I'd offer that based on rental fees, I would recommend better towels and seating for more than two outside to enjoy the view. We had to pull a dining chair and office chair for the four of us to sit out on the deck with a glass of wine. The area is great to explore..enjoyed the coastal tidal pools, bought fish from nearby harbor for dinner, and enjoyed The Press for great nearby breakfast.
Thanks for your review. I now have thicker, soft, towels and more seating on the deck, thanks to your giving us that feedback.
Montara Bluff Home
Amazing. The pictures do not capture the full beauty and tranquility of the home. Nancy’s artwork, eclectic furnishings and the proximity of the ocean/bluff’s make this a destination point, it’s so much more than just a rental.
Lesia: We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at our house - the last stop on your wonderful 35th Anniversary trip. Check with us for seasonal promotions and you will always qualify for our "returning guest" discount.

One of a kind
We had a memorable stay in this beautiful home. We only had three days, but with the ocean views and the warm welcome, it felt like a true vacation. We enjoyed all the artistic touches and of course the proximity to world class hiking and sightseeing.
Hosts: great folks who made this past weekend getaway a very pleasant experience.
Property: Very clean, decorated with taste and well maintained.
Location: You've seen the pictures. It's even more beautiful in real life :-)
Overall: Matched and exceeded the expectations.
Thanks Gary and Nancy!
Beautiful Retreat by the Ocean
We would like to thank Nancy and Gary for the time we could be in their beautiful house overlooking the ocean. This view is a scenic as it gets with waves breaking over the rocks, lighthouse flashing at night and pelicans hovering over the water. The place has everything we could possibly need - from a modern kitchen to beautiful art on the walls. While appearing to be at the very end of land, it is literally minutes from civilization. We appreciate our friendly and welcoming hosts.
Whale watching, tide pools, forests, mountain trails, long beach walks, beaches, surfing, ten minutes drive to Ocean Colony the Ritz Carlton with two golf course -- one designed by Arnold Plamer and the other an oceanfront links course. We can arrange massage and yoga lessons on premises.
