About the property

The perfect oceanfront location for a relaxing vacation or retreat; quiet and private, yet close to excellent restaurants and with easy access to San Francisco. Ideal for photographers, artists, nature lovers, tide pool explorers and children of all ages. This beachfront home is located in one of the most picturesque areas of the coastline. The beautiful beach just a hundred feet from your deck is part of a well known marine life refuge with countless intertidal species, harbor seals, sea birds and the like.

A private tropical lanai features a large multi-jetted spa/hot tub, a gas firepit, outdoor heater, BBQ grill, romantic lighting and more. Huge decks, beautiful ocean views, a spacious living room, ultra-comfortable beds, and a gourmet's kitchen promise an unforgettable vacation experience.

We look forward to welcoming you to our beach house!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and friends surprised me with a spectacular birthday gift -- a trip to the Beach House on Moss Beach. What can I say? It was perfection. Thank you to all involved. The house is excellent in every way. The thoughtful touches everywhere made it so special!

We came down to Moss Beach to get outa Doge and it worked great. Just the sound of the surf and the warm ambiance of the cottage. Just right.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We a wonderful time at the beach house. It's a very nice quite area 30-40 min drive from San Francisco. We enjoyed listening to the ocean every morning and every night. Although it was raining all week during our stay, we enjoyed the spa very much. The house was very nice and we found everything we needed. Jim and Kathy were very hospitable and we were happy with the roses the minute we got into the house, milk and danish as well. Wine was on the fridge but we don't drink! Good for next guests, will be diubled probably. Jim refunded my deposit the next day I came back home, very prompt. Thanks a lot Jim and Kathy for sharing your beach house with us.

Cozy beachfront home

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a fun girls' weekend location and found this beachfront home. It was perfect! This beach house is cozy, has a beautiful ocean view, and well-stocked kitchen. Great location to restaurants and walking trails. We were very impressed with all the amenities. Can't wait to go back!

Great location by the Pacific Ocean

  • 5 of 5

My family (wife and 2 teenage children) and I stayed here while attending graduation services at Stanford, and had a wonderful experience. The home was very neat, clean and had a fully stocked Keurig selection for chilly mornings by the seaside. We chose this home because of its convenient location between Palo Alto and the city (while also being on the ocean).

There are so many great spots nearby, from the city to the north down to Pescadero, you will find so much to do. Use Tripadvisor to help plan your itinerary and get the best scoop on all local dining and entertainment.

Mother ~ Daughters ~ weekend away

  • 5 of 5

Took our Mom to the beach for a quick weekend getaway and it was fabulous. The kitchen is well equipped -perfect for cooking and cocktails. All sizes of coffee mugs too. The fresh flowers were a lovely touch and the muffins were delicious. The view is spectacular and the deck is a perfect place for games. This is a home where many memories have been made~we are already planning our revisit. Thank you for sharing your home.

seaside holiday

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and two friends enjoyed this seaside retreat, more than we imagined we could. When we arrived with fresh produce from the nearby produce stands, they had already settled in to the comfortable and gracious vacation home offered by Jim and Nancy.

Our stay included nearby dining, who knew there would be Peruvian in Half Moon Bay? We had coffee at the beach lookout every morning and ended our days with stargazing and hot tubbing. Heaven. In the end, we left more than friends, we left feeling like family. That is the testimony to the beauty and peace of the place. Two soon to be marrieds and two friends became family.

We hope to stay again, maybe the four of us, maybe with other friends and family This beachside retreat will always bring happiness and peace.
