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!

Comfortable home with an awesome view

  • 1 of 5

This home was phenomenal. It was very warm and we felt relaxed right away. The view was spectacular looking out and seeing the ocean especially at sunset. We also enjoyed the easy access to the walk along the bluff. There were many amenities (many that we never got time to use) making the house special. Jim and Kathy made the house very welcoming adding to the experience.

Great Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This VRBO was perfect for our holiday escape. We loved the location with its gorgeous views. It was away from it all but still close to good restaurants and the sights of San Francisco. Be sure and try the 3-Zero Cafe for breakfast and Half Moon Bay Brewing Company for lunch! Don't over pack this place has it all.

Thanks to wonderful hosts Kathy and Jim.

Everything was as advertised...

Really enjoyed our time at the house. The owners were very helpful and considerate of our needs with an infant. Great views but better yet great owners. Loved it.

Best VRBO my four friends and I have stayed at in the past 5 years for our annual "Get Away Weekend Retreat". A perfect place for any group or family. Right on the beautiful coast, away from any road noise on Hwy 1. The owners had us overwhelmed and spoiled with their fresh daffodils in every room on arrival, wine, pastries, a beautifully stocked beach house, and pristine spa. We "toasted" the sunset every evening, and were greeted by an added surprise in the morning..whales! Thank you Jim and Kathy for a wonderful and most memorable stay!

Wonderful family stay at the beach.

  • 5 of 5

It was everything we wanted and needed. We were surprised by the extras, wine, flower and scones. We loved it here, there was room for all of us to have our own space and large areas to gather together.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Visiting from Minnesota and we were amazed to find such a perfect place so close to San Francisco. Population of Moss Beach is only 400 and feels like a small coastal town. House is very well maintained, comfortable with the best view ever - the ocean! We did lots of hiking, watching wildlife. I'd definitely stay here again. Thank you!
