Nice big home close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

Came here for an artistic retreat with my theatre group. The house had everything we needed: sheets, towels, dishware, cookware. Everything! Just a 2-minute walk to the beach and with enough space for people to spread out and have a little privacy when they needed it. There were also some quirky decorations that stoked a lot of conversation.

Awesome house!

  • 5 of 5

Love this house! We go to Redwood City every 6 months for Lyme disease Treatment for the last 3 years! We are so thankful to have found this house and Paul! We spend 5 days at a time there and there are 5 of us! It alway feels like home and helps make a miserable trip enjoyable! We love this house and area! This time I was surprised that all the carpet has been replaced and new curtains in the master bedroom! We were fine with as it was! Of course there will be some show of wear on floors when you rental to large groups of people! We love being close to the beach and able to walk miles of beautiful trails! The kitchen is a dream and we found the beds to be very comfortable! The kids love all the space and having a gas fireplace to take the chill out is so relaxing! This has been a perfect house and location for us during this very trying time that myself, daughter, and 3 grandchildren are fighting this horrible disease called Lyme! Every time we get to the house we feel like we are at home!

Awesome house by the seashore.

  • 5 of 5

I am retired and wanted to take my family on a vacation on the west coast. We were a group of seven, including my two grandchildren who are eight and ten years old. The house is large with three levels. All levels had bedrooms so we had more than enough space for everyone to be happy. Paul is a very nice fellow. He brought the key when we arrived and proceeded to give me a walk through of the house. The greatest thing about the house is its proximity to the Pacific Ocean. There is a restaurant between the house and the ocean, but the living level and balcony are on the second level allowing a wide view of the ocean. There is also an outdoor deck on the third level. We watched humpback whales in the bay spouting and feeding the entire seven days of our stay. That alone was worth the stay. I have read about a chemical smell in the house in earlier reviews. There is an odor of chemicals when you first enter the front door. Because the weather was so great, with highs in the 60's and lows in the 50's, we opened windows throughout the house to enjoy the fresh air and to hear the soothing crashing of the surf. The smell of chemicals was no problem with all the fresh air. The beds were all comfortable as no one from our party had complaints. The house was clean with lots of supplies in the kitchen. The furnishings were a mixture of old and new. My wife, two grandchildren and myself went on a trail ride with the Sea Horse Ranch. We rode along the higher ground of the sea shore and then headed down to the beach. It was an awesome experience that I would highly recommend to anyone. We also went on a whale watching tour in Monterey. Several of us got seasick, ugh! We did see some blue whales and humpbacks. However, the show on the beach we watched from the living room of the house and the outdoor decks was a constant display put on by humpback whales. There is no doubt I would stay in this house again. It was sad to leave.

Wonderful Home, Amazing Views, Great Beach Access!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home! We have had several retreats at this home, and we have found the home to be clean, well-stocked and inviting. The views are phenomenal, and the walk to the beach is just a few steps down the road.

There are several comments about a varnish smell downstairs. We think these comments are overblown. In our experience, this is an extremely minor issue.

So, Five Enthusiastic Stars for this amazing home. We can't wait for our return visit in just a couple of months!

Beautiful Location for a Family Gathering

  • 3 of 5

I truly enjoyed our stay, great location but as others have noted the strong varnish smell on the first floor was there. The wine fridge does not work as noted in other posts. House is definitely showing signs of wear but the location is fantastic. We did not use the room down stairs as the smell was too strong and the views too nice upstairs. We had friends staying close by and we had 19 for dinner one night and the house did not feel cramped at all. The top deck is great for sunsets and star gazing. If the wine fridge was working and the smell was not there then a 4 star rating would be warranted. If the owner also does some cleaning of the carpets and gets a new BBQ then a 5 star rating would be in order. We will be back as it is a great place to be in Half Moon Bay

3 Generation Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights at this vacation rental with our children, their spouses and the grandchildren ranging from ages 4 months old to 13 years old. This house was very accommodating for everyone, kitchen was fully stocked with everything we could possibly needed and the kids had plenty of games to play with, which was a nice added surprise. The view of the ocean from the bedrooms along with other areas of the home were just breathtaking. We enjoyed the Miramar Beach Restaurant next door, you must try the margarita. I would highly recommend this Gem of a vacation rental. I plan to return again. Our family had an amazing time!
