Nice Getaway in Half Moon Bay

  • 5 of 5

Four women who like to explore, eat out and play bridge enjoyed our 3 ay stay. The house offered separate bedrooms for each of us. The living room furniture is very comfortable and, unlike many places, had enough light for reading. We found some wonderful restaurants close by. All in all, it was a great trip.

We totally enjoyed our stay. This is a lovely home in a beautiful area.

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed our stay. This is a lovely home in a beautiful area. We had eight in our group and everyone had their own place to sleep. You are close to the beach, close to shopping, to restaurants and grocery stores, and most importantly only a half hour away from San Francisco or if you wish Santa Cruz. The scenery is fantastic. The house itself is very accommodating. We had family dinners on several of our nights and a nice breakfast each day. There are plenty of utensils and needed items that you might require. The owner keeps it well stocked for toiletries and laundry items. Having a washer and dryer is a must for us. Thank you so much Joe for an excellent accommodations. We would definitely recommend this location to anyone . Dave and family

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.
