About Gonul Blum

I am an RN, but for 10 years I was a chef/owner of 3 restaurants in Sacramento. I love to garden and grow my own herbs and vegetables for cooking and when I had my restaurants, Alice Water's was my inspiration. At The Garden Cottage, I am growing a garden so that my guests can do the same. I hope my guests will love Pacifica for the same reasons I do. I love long walks along the ocean, the fresh air and the sound of the waves.

Gonul Blum purchased this house in 2017

Why Gonul Blum chose Sharp Park

Love the ocean. I can just sit on my front deck and listen to the waves or walk out my front gate and access a 1.2 mile long beach promenade a few feet from my house. I loved the nice yards and gardens that I cultivate so that i and my guests can enjoy fresh vegetables and herbs

What makes this house unique

Eat Your Vegetables:

Besides its incredible location just feet from the beach and Pacifica pier, Gonul loves to grow things to eat and drink (great herbal teas from the garden). Feel free to pick a salad for lunch or dinner

Nice and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

After spending the day in nearby San Francisco or driving around siteseeing it was nice to come back to this very cozy comfortable cottage. Beautiful landscaping with an amazing backyard. The town of Pacifica is quaint and quiet.

Beautiful house, comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just enjoyed a 4 night stay last week. The house is beautifully decorated and impeccably clean and we really appreciated the welcome gift basket. The house is a short walk up to the pier (basically across the street) and every afternoon we would walk down and watch whales and dolphins swim by - amazing. The fire pit/entertaining area in the back was also great. We would definitely rent this property again! Thanks Gonul!

Great place close to San Francisco

  • 5 of 5

My family loved relaxing at this beautiful home in Pacifica after busy day touring San Francisco. Even though the weather was foggy and cold during our stay, the kids loved being only steps away from the beach - their favorite part of the vacation. The provided gift basket of snacks was so thoughtful and made us feel welcome. Thank you so much Gonul for your hospitality!

So Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

This was just the perfect little cottage. I loved the beautiful rugs and the outdoor furniture and fire pit. The kitchen and appliances are also really nice! Everything is so cozy and lovely. I can’t say anything negative, only a few helpful insights. The beach IS 1/2 block away, but it is not one where you can walk up to the water. You have to drive about 20 minutes if you want to walk in the sand and feel the ocean, which was a tad bit disappointing but definitely not a deal breaker. Pacifica is a quaint little town that we really enjoyed coming home to at the end of a busy day in the city.

Owner's Response: I'm curious about remark of the need to drive to a beach to get to the water. At our corner there is a sea wall and rocks, but a short block south it is a few steps down to a beach that extends almost 1 mile long with a sandy entrance to the water along the whole stretch. For those not familiar with the beaches of Northern California, the water is cold and the waves can be big, but wading should be no problem.

Very nice, comfortable, great communication, and great location...

  • 4 of 5

Gonul is great...easy quick communication with her. The home was as advertised, very cute and comfortable, feels bigger than the 800 sq ft it apparently is. Very fun outdoor spaces both front and back. Kitchen well equipped and everything worked and was clean. She leaves out a variety of snacks and homemade foods for you. Less than 30 second walk to the ocean. Thumbs up, thank you Gonul.

Sharp Park
Car: recommended

Only two homes to walk past to get to the beach promenade, Pacifica Pier and the beach itself. Listen to the waves as you fall asleep at night. You are only 8 miles from SFO, 6 miles from Ocean Beach and 1 block to the nearest bus stop that can take you south to Half Moon Bay or, much closer, the great public transportation system of SF and all of San Francisco. Restaurants close by. Food stores within walking distance. Great walking along the beach promenade (about 1.3 miles of beach front) which in turn connects to some great coastal hiking in the surrounding hills. Golf about 1/4 mile away. Fishing off of Pacifica Pier 3 houses away.
