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 The Bay Area

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.

What makes this house unique

Here are 9 of our favorite Activiteis:

(1) Easy beach outings!

(2) Evening hot dog and marshmallow roasts on the beach

(3) Taking a run along the bluffs and returning along the beach collecting shells.

(4) Biking along the Coastal Trail up to Princeton by the Sea for a seafood meal at Sam's Chowder House or Barabara's Fish Trap (2 local Favorites)

(5) Biking or driving a few minutes to town for a Sunday morning chocolate croissant or Farmers Market (seasonal)

(6) Easy access to Coastal Repertory Live Theater

(7) Enjoying a romantic evening sunset on our beach at the end of our street

(8) Savoring a sunset glass of wine at the Ritz-Carlton hotel while listening to the bagpipers playing the sunset tunes

(9) A cozy nighttime fire in the living room listening to music with the sounds of waves crashing and occasional blares of the foghorns drifting through the windows

Great Month!

  • 5 of 5

We were there for a month and absolutely loved the place. We are envious of those of you who live close enough to come on a regular basis. The property was perfectly equipped to include, a well equipped kitchen, outdoor grill, cable TV, XBox, and children's toys and books both for inside and for the beach. We were able to entertain frequent guests inside, in the back yard and at the beach. We loved the walks and the bike rides of the coastal trail. Not the greatest weather in February and early March, but a memorable experience on our first trip to Half Moon Bay. Thanks John and Cathy!

Lovely, cozy seaside place, close to the water and the park, cute interior

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The house is cozy and cute, with unique and comfortable furniture in sand-and-sea colors. Easy to get in and out, we were just a 5-minute walk from the beautiful park on the beachside bluffs and a 5-minute drive from downtown Half Moon Bay. The owner was friendly and responsive. We had a great time!

Beautiful house, wonderful location, awesome owners!!!

  • 5 of 5

This immaculate home was located minutes away from the Pacific Coast Trail which we went walking on every morning for miles. Everything in the home was in great shape. We loved the fireplace in the living room. The owners are wonderful to work with and we loved every minute in their home. Thank you and we look forward to returning. This home is a delight.

Great, comfortable house nearby to the ocean, bird sanctuary, long walking paths. Close to main street for shopping. Guest book/guide was extremely helpful with things to do and notes from the owner personalizing it. We would love to go again!
