A large spacious home located within walking distance to town, the coastal trail and the beach!

  • 5 of 5

There were many opportunities for biking and walking when we stayed at this home. We walked to Bike Works, (Highway 1/Kelly street). We rented 5 bikes and rode our bikes along the coastal trail for about 45 minutes to Barbara's Fish Trap. This was great fun and we earned our lunch. Some of our group also rode bikes to the Ritz Carlton resort via the coastal trail. This ride was a bit more challenging since it is a dirt path near the Ritz. From the house, it is an easy walk to view the ocean. We had to walk down a cliff path to actually get to the ocean, but if the horses can do it, we can!

The house itself was clean and spacious, yet cozy. A nice surprise for me was that the one tub is actually a soaking tub. There is also a new shower that has been installed above this tub, which should make everyone happy. There is one bedroom that is obviously for children, with two twins. The high footboards on the twin beds make it hard for a tall person to sleep there. There are some very creative toys supplied for young children.

Our refundable damage deposit was credited back to us promptly. We seem to travel to Half Moon Bay quite regularly and would definitely want to stay at the home again.

Wonderful weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at this home so close to the beach. It was well stocked with everything one would want, and with four bedrooms and 3 baths, gave us plenty of space. I'd definitely recommend it to others. We only had 4 adults there but the playroom had lots of kids' toys and books so great for a family with young kids too.

Spacious, comfortable, well located.

  • 5 of 5

The convenient beach and trail were the high points. The house was incredibly comfortable for eight people. It was great to find a playroom with some toys as well as a wonderful playground a short walk away. An easy walk from Bike Works--they gave us a good deal on a multi-day rental of bikes. The dirt trail extension to the south of the coast side trail was fun. We had a great visit.

Great location and lots of amenities

  • 4 of 5

The house was perfect for my family. My husband and I traveled with our daughter and my mother and the space and layout was great. There are two master suites, one is separated pretty nicely from the rest of the house so there's a lot of privacy. Our daughter LOVED all the toys, the amount of toys to play with was truly unreal and it really helped to have something like that so far from home to occupy her when we needed to cook a meal. It's only getting four stars b/c I feel like the cleaning co. could have done a bit more thorough of a job, but the owner corrected it. The owner is very nice and easy to work with and very communicative. We were very pleased with our rental and would rent again!
