About Silvia and James Maher
My wife Silvia and I (James) have had the great fortune to be able to raise our two kids (Derek and Fasha) in such a beautiful place in the world. Now that they have grown and are about the business of making their own lives we decided to share our good fortune with others.
Silvia and James Maher purchased this Apartment in 1991
Why Silvia and James Maher chose Montara
We originally rented this house from Silvia's father when he temporarily left the medical field to serve as the country administrator of Costa Rica for the Peace Corps. Following he did a similar job in Nicaragua. After a five year hiatus he and his wife decided to settle in Denver Colorado. We were delighted buy this ocean view house and "take it off their hands".

Rest and Relaxation
We came here with our older dog over the 4th of July weekend and found just what we were looking for - a quiet place to spend the holiday. The space was comfortable, clean, and bright. The indoor gas fireplace made everything cozy when the fog rolled in, and we enjoyed the deck when the sun came out, and the gas fire pit in the evenings. The owner was responsive and thoughtful. The location was close enough to walk to Montara State Beach, but we didn't want to run across Hwy 1, so we drove and always were able to find parking. We also explored some of the hiking tails in the hills across the highway from the beach. Pillar Point Harbor area has lots of restaurants and is only a 5 minute drive. Our favorite was the Moss Beach Distillary where we ate burgers on their dog friendly patio. We definately would return again!
Right across from the beach! Easy in and out to San Francisco
Great time! Beautiful place.
We stayed with our dogs for 5 nights. It is very sweet and comfortable. James and Sylvia are very sweet and accommodating. Gorgeous ocean view from the patio. We would definitely return.
Great suite, better location!
We had a great time at this place in Montara. It is a spacious and very comfortable one bedroom suite, full of amenities, and with a nice view of the ocean. Our hosts were always in touch when needed it, and filled up the suite with details, making our stay amazing. The suite is dog-friendly (with previous permission from the hosts) and it has a great location; right in the middle of everything. Full of amenities, luxury bathrobes, a Keurig fully supplied, all kind of snacks, extra linens, even an extra bed to accommodate our daughter.
Finally, the owners have put together a list of favorite eateries in the area. They are spot on! We also venture other places and we made great discoveries like the Spanish Tapa restaurant Seville (Princeton Harbor), the Peruvian restaurant Port 27 and the High Tides Cafe, both in Pacífica.
Thank you, Silvia and James! We are already planning to come back!
Sílvia and James were open, supportive and helpful hosts. We loved the cozy/homey space, comfy bed and lovely fire pit. We so appreciated the local tips and suggestions for places to visit, run, and eat! Their suite really met our needs and we will definitely try to stay again on our next trip to San Fran! Thank you Silvia and James!! ❤️
Beautiful views and exceptional service
Sylvia and her husband were hand a foot on us with the accommodations. They always made sure we had plenty of amenities. Must stay as views are spectacular and the vibe is real. Also, all the paintings in the unit are made by the owner and we are ordering for our beach bungalow.
