About Glenn Gilliam

Our family loves to travel! Being a first generation American and fortunate enough to bring our sons to my mothers Greek island of Zakynthos, and exploring beaches all over the world, we are always happy to return to the beautiful beaches and countryside that is Half Moon Bay.

Glenn Gilliam purchased this house in 1998

Why Glenn Gilliam chose Half Moon Bay

This property is set up exactly the way we would want to find a property when we travel. We have given this a lot of thought and touched on just about everything one could want while on vacation. Ironed sheets, fluffy towels, lush bathrobes, fully stocked kitchen, commercial washer and dryer, current magazines, (Teresa's addiction), books, games, movies, music, wine, cheese, coffee and cake!

What makes this house unique

Central location to San Francisco, Monterey, San Jose and the wine country. SFO just minutes away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. We instantly felt at home when Joey met us at the house; music playing and wonderful treats awaiting our arrival - chocolate cake, breakfast essentials, wine, cheese, fruit... truly a wonderful welcome - Some of the words used to describe this home - cozy, clean, beautiful, comfortable, coming home!

We had an absolute wonderful time with our nieces... and the Aunties survived! Some highlights, Santa Cruz, whale watching, Haight/Ashbury city tour, biking across the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Twin Peaks, HMB, beach combing, Morie nights.

We are truly blessed to have been able to take this high school graduation trip with are nieces your home made it much more special. Thank you!!

Magnificent!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in places all over the world and never been to a more accommodating home. There was cheese and fruit and a welcoming cake with our name on it when we arrived. We were given a tour of the residence that included the garage with washer and dryer. There were products for use in every area, cleaners, laundry and dishwasher detergent, down to reading glasses in each room. Timers turned the outside lights on and off. The back yard offered a lovely sitting area around a fire pit (for use with the s' more's kit in the kitchen) and a large grill. I can't think of anything else that could have been there for our comfort. Highly recommend this residence and will be back!

A special family gathering

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every moment of our visit, from the gracious welcome to the final farewell. The location is perfect - close enough to spend a day in San Francisco and an evening at the theater; travel south to Monterey Bay to visit the aquarium and watch the sea otters playing along the shore; or take a day to explore the dramatic coast and beaches (don't miss the Pigeon Point Light house on the way to Santa Cruz - complete with whale sightings!). Anchoring all of our adventures was this warm and beautifully appointed home in Half Moon Bay. We celebrated a birthday with the delicious chocolate cake that was waiting for us when we arrived, along with croissants for breakfast and a cosy fire to relax in front of at the end of the day. Everything was perfect - luxurious bedding, light filled rooms, lovely baths -- and the home was filled with special touches that were appreciated by all - creating a truly charming and delightful place to enjoy our long weekend together.

We have stayed at the Boxwood House two years in a row. It is a beautiful home that is very comfortable for the entire family. We especially enjoyed the back yard. It is so private and the children's playhouse is such a great, extra feature. We all had a wonderful time.

We will be back.

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This home was ideally located for easy access to the beach and great restaurants near Half Moon Bay. The home has everything you need to create the perfect, relaxing time away. Lorri welcomes you to the home and shows you around. The backyard is amazing with a great fire pit. Beds were extremely comfy and the kitchen is well-stocked. We will most certainly come back again in the future.

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 4 days in this beautiful house on our trip in California. The house is located in a quiet neighbourhood and close to all Bay Area locations. Our family of four had a great time. Everything is very clean and well maintained. The house is nicely decorated and the reception by Lorri was very nice. Thanks Teresa and Glen for sharing this house! We felt at home.

Nestled between forested hills and the beautiful Northern California coastline, lies the town of Half Moon Bay. Starting as an agricultural hub for the Bay Area, this coastal hamlet remains well known for it's farming roots. On the drive in you can expect to see fields of flowers, and depending on the season, you can find rows of Christmas trees and pumpkin patches, or the waves of professional and amateur surfers driving into town for the legendary Mavericks surfing events off the coast of Pillar Point, a five minute drive from the house.
