The drama of the ocean can be viewed from several windows and the effect can be felt when stepping out onto the large front porch.

Why Allen Price chose The Bay Area

Living on the Pacific Coast south of San Francisco is perhaps the dream location around the world. The spectacular coastal beauty of water and mountains create world class vistas. The intimacy with nature in both the ocean and on land create an unending discovery and observation of life. I've lived in this area for decades and decided to build for my family in a location that would inspire us all.

Magnificent Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I cannot say enough good things about our stay here. The house is gorgeous and very clean. The view is amazing. The rooms are all nice, and the sheets were nice. The kitchen (upstairs with the view) is upscale and capable of cooking a lot of food for a group of people and the seating area was close by which is perfect for the baby shower we had. There was the master bedroom with a side room which was great for my cousin that has kids. The area is perfect, we have rented houses in other areas and were not as pleased. Close to walking trails, the beach and light house and a short drive to great local places. The booking process was easy and they were very responsive. Not a single complaint.

Fantastic!!! Breathtaking. Book it!

  • 5 of 5

We visited this property for a long weekend and really enjoyed it. It is conveniently located near San Francisco, but far enough away to have some respite from city life. We had three adults and two children ages six and eight. The view from the home is absolutely tranquil. The scenery in the area is breathtaking. From Devil's Slide, to the Point Montara Lighthouse, to Half Moon Bay, and the infamous "Mavericks" surf spot, there is plenty to explore. We even saw whales from the kitchen window! Allen has the most comfortable chair right next to a picture window overlooking the sea. You just want to melt in it!

Allen and Carol are fantastic hosts, and they have everything organized perfectly, so when you arrive, you can feel right at home. There are plenty of great books, and popular movies at the house for mellow entertainment. And in the area, Allen will point you to the local stores, best food stops, and any other tips you need to get around.

We look forward to another long weekend in Moss Beach!

(We have some of the most beautiful photos from this trip. Words and Photos don't do it justice. You have to hear the sound, feel the breeze, and smell the air!)

Awesome Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Amazing view of the ocean, lighthouse within walking distance, in driving distance of some great sights such as Moss Beach (with tide pools!) and the Montara Mountain hike. Huge bedrooms, lots of space to eat, lounge around, and play games-though you probably don't want to stay inside with so much to do close by! There are also grocery stores nearby if you need any food or toiletries. Allen was a very considerate host-he stays within a few blocks of the house if you ever need anything, and gave us a house tour upon arrival. 10/10 would recommend!

Mike & Clara Wedding

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for 4days for a small wedding family-reunion get together. The house was exactly what we needed for our beach theme wedding. The balcony was the perfect place to see the sunset and the fishing boats at night. The living room and dining room were situated perfectly to enjoy the beautiful ocean view. The home was quite and comfortable and have all the necessary conveniences. The side yard was good for an outside barbecue.

This beautiful home provided much more than you would receive from any other wedding venue. We are looking forward to a return visit.

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 6 - two parents, two teenagers, a young adult and a senior citizen. We usually stay in vrbo properties when we travel because we like to have plenty of room, and we like to have the option of cooking and doing laundry. The Montara Beach House was absolutely perfect for our needs. San Francisco was within easy reach by car, and Monterey and Napa were about 1.5 hrs drive, making it a perfect base of operations for lots of activities. Even better, within 5 minutes walk are a lighthouse, a gorgeous beach, and an adorable little coffee shop! Mornings and evenings were so wonderful and peaceful with these things nearby. The house itself is spacious and beautifully decorated, and I have rarely encountered such a well-appointed kitchen! It didn't feel like a vacation rental at all, it is cozy and home-like (if your home has Viking appliances, beautiful hardwood floors and a fireplace in the master bathroom!)

One extra bonus was the kind, attentive property manager, Allen. He met us at the house and showed us where everything was, and he assisted us with a minor issue (we had trouble figuring out the thermostat). He located an extra fan for the master bedroom when I found it a little warm. He even had soup waiting for us on our arrival! We are very happy that we stayed at the Montara Beach House. It is perfect for a family vacation, and we will definitely be returning for another stay.

Customer Service at its Finest

  • 5 of 5

Eleven members of my family just returned from San Francisco after staying in this absolutely beautiful home. With a commercial Viking kitchen range to the beautiful view of the ocean, even in the rain, a fire place in the master bedroom extending through to the world pool bathtub this house is a true win especially at the price. Now what truly capped off the trip, CUSTOMER SERVICE! In a time when customer service is iffy at best, the Owner of the property, was there in a moments notices if you needed something. Again, a wonderful place to stay and the attention to making our trip as enjoyable as possible will make this vacations on of our best ever.
