About John Ortiz
We are a family of beach lovers (especially my wife) who enjoy having a beach retreat that is easily accessible to San Francisco, San Jose, and the SF Bay area.
John Ortiz purchased this House in 2002
Why John Ortiz chose Half Moon Bay
We love this location because it is easy to get to, and it is next to the beach, bike trails, hiking trails and so many ocean activities. We also find the people in Half Moon Bay to be very friendly.

They thought of everything!
This is our third time staying here. The home is so well supplied and equipped with meticulous attention to detail. The proximity to the beach, to downtown, the backyard all add up to a winner. A great place to enjoy this part of Northern California. The owners are very responsive and thoughtful- their property reflects that.
Clean and well-maintained in a wonderful location
This was the perfect place for our family of eight to stay. John went above and beyond in helping us with our reservation and in giving us tips and ideas for our trip. We would highly recommend staying here!
Beautiful property in an amazing location.
This was our first visit to Half Moon Bay, and what an introduction it was! To be able go out the front door and walk to the beach or ride our bikes on the bluff-top trail was wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and hope to return soon.
LOVED the proximity to the beach!
House is lovely, immaculate, and so very comfortable. All supplies we needed for our stay were there. John, the host, answered questions fully and promptly - very responsive. Will definitely be back to enjoy the beach, the restaurants, and the bliss of Half Moon Bay!
Wonderful house in fantastic location
