Fabulous Location, Amenities- very relaxing for families or couples
My husband and I stayed here with our 2 yr old and 5 yr old sons for a week in July and it was simply perfect. The location is beautiful. We prefer to stay outside San Fran when we visit, and this location made it convenient to take the beautiful drive into the city, as well as to Montara Beach, Half Moon Bay, Pacifica, Pescadero and more. There is a beautiful trail 1 minute up the driveway where you can walk the bluffs with stunning views of the ocean/passing whales too. 10 minutes walking in the other direction is a marine reserve where you can see tide pools and harbor seals right on the beach. Big hit for everyone! The home is full of great amenities, from the coffee provided by the owner, spa-style toiletry items in the bathrooms, beach toys for the kids, well-appointed kitchen and 3 nice sized bedrooms. The views of the ocean from the kitchen and living room were great to wake up to each morning as well! It was an easy home to stay in with small children and would also be great for couples. We even entertained several friends on 2 occasions at the house and it was a piece of cake to prepare meals for everyone. The hot tub and fire pit were perfect at the end of each day, and we really couldn't have asked for a better rental. The owner was very easy to reach any time we needed anything and we would certainly stay here again!
Wonderful place to stay!
We stayed at this lovely seaside home for about 6 nights. After long days from sightseeing, it was so nice to come back to relax, eat in and look out over the pacific. The sunsets were spectacular. The drive to the home is also breathtaking, as you drive along Route 1. We felt as though everything was a short drive away, yet we were in a peaceful area away from the bustle. Thank you to the owners for your hospitality, welcoming us with a bottle of wine, blueberry muffins and fresh flowers in every bedroom. You won’t be disappointed if you stay here!
Beautiful and Relaxing!
My husband and I are world travelers, and we loved our stay! The owners were so hospitable and welcoming. The home was inviting and fully stocked with kitchen utensils, etc., and sunsets on the beach were amazing. How we miss the sound of the ocean already! Thank you for such a wonderful time!
60th Anniversary/79th Birthday
The house was very spacious. Three large bedrooms, two large baths, plenty of towels & supplies. The kitchen had lots of amenities such as coffeemakers. And best of all, many windows with views of the ocean.
Spacious, lovely, hot tub was a hit.
Beautiful, spacious cottage on the beach. Literally 30 feet to the water’s edge. Easy to find, private, and plenty of space to spread out, relax, and enjoy time together. We really wish we could stay there all year long.
We took our teens and had a great time exploring the rocks along the beach and learning to surf at the beach in town. The beach by the house is but different from the usual sandy beach, more pebbly and coarse than most, but not too much of a big deal for us. A traditional sandy beach was a mile from the house and an easy drive with plenty of parking.
Our only concern was the mattress in the Master suite was wowza hard and uncomfortable. But if that’s your style then 5/5. Overall a wonderful experience with a truly awesome kitchen, 2 baths, and a great location. If the weather had cooperated we would’ve spent more time on the fantastic deck making s’mores etc.
Owners were very welcoming and gracious.
We are glad you had a wonderful time at our beach house and that you wish you could stay there all year long. We are sorry that the master suite bed was not to your liking. We have received myriad compliments about the beds with their quality mattresses and comfort mattress toppers. Mattress firmness preference varies greatly from person to person, but your observation is the only negative comment we have received about bed comfort in many years of rentals.
Truly a beautiful place
Enjoyed our stay. The home was welcoming and beautiful. The small details of leaving muffins and fresh flowers were wonderful. The ocean view was amazing. This was a quick trip. Hoping to go back and spend more time. No problems working with the owners.
