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!
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.
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.
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.
My husband and I had a great stay at this comfortable and well-appointed beach house with breathtaking views. We loved walking along the coast, watching the birds and animals, breathing in the ocean air, and strolling through the quaint surrounding neighborhood. But the absolute best part was coming back to a homey but luxurious abode at the end of the day and watching the sunset from the front of the house. The owners made us feel very welcome and we enjoyed dining and shopping in nearby Half Moon Bay and Pescadero. It was the perfect romantic getaway and we hope to return soon!
This is a really special place! We were visiting our daughter who lives in San Francisco and rented this home for a few days away from the city for all of us to relax... and we all just LOVED it! It's filled with charm and is the perfect beach house. The views are stunning and everything is very comfortable... well equiped in every way! The other reviews are "spot on". Definitly one of the nicest homes we've ever rented. Don't miss hiking along the coast over to Moss Beach Distillery... words can't describe that walk! We will be back for sure!
Our family LOVED our stay at this Ocean Front Beach House only 30 minutes from downtown San Francisco. We have rented through VRBO for a few years now and have been satisfied with each rental, but this rental takes the grand prize. The location, the ocean views, the amenities, THAT KITCHEN! It's true that the owners have thought of everything. I SO appreciated the fresh flowers and the breakfast treats. It made us feel so welcomed and so special. I caught our two teenage boys a number of times looking out at the ocean, having a relaxed conversation occasionally pointing at a harbor seal bobbing in the ocean tide. They were honestly mesmerized by the place and take it from me, they are not easily mesmerized. Without question, I would recommend this place to anyone considering a stay in this area. We also appreciated the inside scoop by the owners on restaurants in the area. We took them up on their recommendations and we were very pleased! We drove along the coast and the gorgeous views of ocean, dramatic cliffs, sea caves, parasails, sand dunes, cypress trees and surfers go on for miles and miles. Find a way to get here!
