Yes you can have it all!
Perched atop a hillside with breathtaking ocean views and located on a cul-de-sac that leads into an enchanted forest, lies a hidden jewel. Imagine waking up in a home surrounded by trees but within sight of the water. Have your first cup of coffee on the deck while gazing at the ocean and experiencing the natural beauty of the coastside. Perhaps you'll see the pair of Red-tailed Hawks who nest in a neighboring tree during parts of the spring and summer, or the hummingbirds that frequent our terrace. Spend your morning exploring the forest and miles of hiking trails, or stroll down to the beach and world-class tide pools. Then, it's a 2 minute drive to Princeton Harbor with fresh seafood, restaurants and even kayaking! Or, maybe a 10 minute drive into Half Moon Bay for unique shopping and fantastic restaurants. But the adventure isn't over! Jump in your car and in no time at all you're in San Francisco enjoying the theater or any of its fantastic attractions. On the other hand, maybe you spend the entire day on the terrace, curled up with a book on the couch, or perhaps watching a movie downstairs in the private theater. Whether you go out or stay in, your coastside experience will create memories of a lifetime.

Alex and I have owned this house for over 15 years and we love escaping to the coast. As the children get older, and we spend more time in the city at volleyball and soccer, we find less opportunity to get away. Several friends commented that it was a shame that more people don't know about the magic of this beautiful home and the surrounding area. We believe Moss Beach and the coast are hidden treasures waiting to be discovered.
Allison purchased this House in 2002
Why Allison chose Moss Beach
We were looking for a quiet getaway from the City. We are thrilled with this home and all that the coast has to offer. When my husband (Alex) was a child, he used to intern at the Steinhart Aquarium - Alex has always had a passion for the ocean. Our family loves to go tide pooling at the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve - this is about as good as it gets! Our home is an 8 minute walk to world class tide pools and beaches.
What makes this House unique
The views are spectacular. The outdoor terrace has comfortable couches to relax and take a nap. We love hanging out on the deck, enjoying a glass of wine, and watching the kids play in the jacuzzi. The house is made for relaxing and spending time with family and friends. We designed the home with the idea of being together, but also wanting some quiet time alone. There are plenty of spots to curl up and read a book. There is a fabulous forest at the end of our street and it has a tree swing that the kids just love.

Absolutely wonderful!! *!
Most amazing feeling of comfort I could imagine! Everything down to the smallest detail! Allison made us feel so comfortable in her beautiful home! Even though I was there with my 6 very young grandchildren (7 years to 10 months old) Allison made us feel very welcome and we were able to thoroughly enjoy all the wonderful features this gorgeous home offers! I don’t usually do reviews, but felt compelled to let everyone know what a true blessing it was for us to stay at this property! We can’t wait to stay again!!!! Thank you Allison for your genuine hospitality it made all the difference in the world! We will see you again!! With much Aloha.
Every detail in this house is perfect. Beautiful view, short walk to the beach, very short walk to a forest that would be a dream come true for children, including a tree swing. First rental we have stayed in with a truly equipped kitchen. Allison had great communication with us. Super comfortable beds, lots of blankets and pillows. Immaculate bathrooms with beautiful fixtures.
A beautiful home with great amenities for guests!
We have been renting weekend houses for over 25 years and have never stayed in a more welcoming home From the moment we entered to behold beautiful flowers,a tasty gift basket, and fully equipped kitchen, let alone a gorgeous view, we knew it would be a special time. The site was clean, nicely decorated, well appointed with clear instructions for operating the many devices available, including the movie room which had lounge chairs! Allison was attentive to every detail, responsive to all questions, and generous in her willingness to share this beautiful home. The only caution I would make is for those who may not do well with stairs, otherwise this is a lovely home worth renting. Thank you Allison!
Not ONE thing was bad. NOT ONE!
We rented this home from out of state for a family gathering over the weekend. It exceeded our expectations in every way. There were 10 of us staying over and we had dinner guests as well. The house never felt crowded. Wonderful floorplan. Spacious, spotless and the attention to detail is impressive. This is a quality property through and through with an owner who understands and employs professional, courteous communications and is available for every concern.
Being cooks we were very impressed with the kitchen and ammenities, the extra helpful items tucked away and most everything we would need right down to bag clips and scotch tape. The forethought and generosity that is evident here is downright impressive. Just as impressive as the eclectic art work throughout, the cleanliness and contemporary decor of the property. I am hard pressed to find even ONE thing that didn't meet our expectations. I suppose I could say that the wi-fi (possibly due to location and the number of people using it) could be spotty but honestly... that's about it. We had a wonderful experience and a magical wedding weekend. Thank you!
Wonderful home. Very clean and spacious.
9 women for a long weekend. Plenty of room. Beds were very comfortable. Surroundings are gorgeous. Great area for walking or going into Half Moon Bay to shop and dine. Would definitely stay here again
Great place for the whole family
We had a great time staying at this house. We stayed with our five kids and grandma and grandpa and we all had plenty of space. The house is clean and well stocked. There a lot of areas for everyone to spread out and relax. The little kids loved the forest trails behind the house as well as the park that is easily within walking distance. The tide pools in town are a lot of fun also. The owners are great communicators and were always available. We will be returning in the future.
The house is on a cul-de-sac that leads to a forest with a tree swing and hiking trails with ocean view vistas. We are also less than a 10 minute walk to the beach and world-class tide pools (Fitzgerald Marine Reserve). The house is a 5 minute walk to the Moss Beach Park, a fantastic playground for the kids, and a 5 minute drive to Princeton Harbor (fresh seafood, restaurants, fishing boats, kayaking and whale watching).
