Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. We instantly felt at home when Joey met us at the house; music playing and wonderful treats awaiting our arrival - chocolate cake, breakfast essentials, wine, cheese, fruit... truly a wonderful welcome - Some of the words used to describe this home - cozy, clean, beautiful, comfortable, coming home!

We had an absolute wonderful time with our nieces... and the Aunties survived! Some highlights, Santa Cruz, whale watching, Haight/Ashbury city tour, biking across the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Twin Peaks, HMB, beach combing, Morie nights.

We are truly blessed to have been able to take this high school graduation trip with are nieces your home made it much more special. Thank you!!

Breathtakingly beautiful home that is comfortable for all ages and in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay in Half Moon Bay because of this incredible beach house! The home is decorated with incredible style, yet is so comfortable and makes you feel right at home. We brought our three young kids along and they loved the home as well. We spent hours playing in the beautiful backyard with a playhouse, fire pit, and full dining table. We arrived late in the evening and were welcomed with fresh muffins, orange juice, and ground coffee to make in the morning. It was fabulous! All the beds are extremely comfortable and the kitchen is great for cooking up meals during our stay. The location is in walking distance to the ocean and right off a highway that seemed to lead us to everywhere we had planned to go. We would go back and stay at this home any day!

Beautiful home-away-from-home!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home in Half-Moon Bay (HMB). We arrived to find a clean, beautifully furnished, wonderfully landscaped home. Croissants, coffee, tea, cheese, fruit and chocolate cake so appreciated after a flight from Toronto. Our granddaughter loved the playhouse in the yard. We barbequed, used the heat lamps at dinnertime and enjoyed the firepit after dark. Shops a short drive away in HMB, bookstore, bakery, one of specialty clothing shops and we bought a framed painting of HMB by a local artist. Ate at Sam's Fish House and Miramar Beach House Restaurant at the ocean. A trip full of great memories. Loved San Francisco Bay area!

It felt like home

  • 5 of 5

Our family (6 adults) stayed in this wonderful house while 3 of us went to a medical conference at the Ritz Carlton. We are so glad we did not choose to stay at the Ritz. The Ritz is beautiful but 3 times as expensive and clearly lacking some things. Like the two bicycles available in the garage, the fire pit in the back yard for some- mores, the back patio for a lunch, and the incredibly comfortable decor. It is a very well cared for house and we also felt well cared for, from the wine and cheese waiting for us to the ability of Joseph to flex a little with an earlier departure time. The house is very comfortable and very clean and well supplied. It felt like we were at home. The location is in a nice residential neighborhood, a short hike to the beach, and a short drive to several good restaurants and markets, including a fish market where we bought grouper and grilled it on the back patio. We found 2 sand dollars walking on the beautiful nearby beaches, and rented a long board for a couple hours at nearby Maverick's. When we come back we won't bother looking at other places.

Best Vrbo Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many vrbo homes and this one wins hands down! I wish the owners of this property would buy and renovate a home in every locale that we like to go to! The home, treats, wine, yard.....everything perfect! My family was ecstatic when they walked in and everyone was feeling a bit sad to leave. Even though we were very busy with a wedding, it was so nice to come back to a peaceful retreat! Thank you so much! Joseph is wonderful to work with and made the whole process smooth and comfortable!

Beautiful home in a quiet location. Close to the beach, great restaurants and fun places to explore

  • 5 of 5

This has got to be one of the best VRBO experiences we have had in our years of travel. The home is not only beautifully appointed, but warm and comfortable, and full of "extras".

Our host was there to greet us and show us around the home and all that it had to offer. All of the rooms were beautifully furnished and extremely comfortable. Everything was immaculate. Sitting on the dining room table was a welcome gift of cheese, crackers, fresh fruit and a bottle of wine. Robes were hanging up for us in the bathrooms. Soaps, scents, tissues - everything we needed was included. No quick trip to the local market to stock up on those personal items required! The Kitchen not only had all that was needed for any cooking that you wanted to do, but had fresh ground coffee and premium teas waiting for us along with pound cake and a delicious chocolate cake for midnight snacks.

The landscaped back yard had a dining area set up with a gas grill and a patio warmer which was perfect for enjoying the early evenings together. And a fire pit complete with a s'more making kit (discovered in the pantry) was available for a fun night around the fire.

Commercial quality washer and dryers made quick work of refreshing our wardrobe for the stay. And bicycles complete with helmets and locks were available for exploring the beach. We even rode down into town.

Comfortable beds and clean, crisp linens were a joy to fall into at the end of the day. We cannot overstate how wonderful this home was to stay in and how gracious our host was in making our time there a great vacation for our family.

WE WILL BE BACK!!

Stunning rental, amazing hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

The house was so unbelievably adorable and worked so well for my husband and I, our daughters (3 and 4 months) and my mother in law. The reason for our stay was to look for homes in the Bay Area, as we were living in Texas. Most of our time was spent scouring neighborhoods but it was nice to be close enough to downtown to fit in more touristy things. The house was very clean and tidy and the owners had made sure to make us feel right at home with bites to eat and even gifts for my 2 young girls. My now 4 year old still talks about wanting to go back to this house. She was also a big fan of the little playhouse and getting to run around the beautiful backyard. I would definitely come back!

Nestled between forested hills and the beautiful Northern California coastline, lies the town of Half Moon Bay. Starting as an agricultural hub for the Bay Area, this coastal hamlet remains well known for it's farming roots. On the drive in you can expect to see fields of flowers, and depending on the season, you can find rows of Christmas trees and pumpkin patches, or the waves of professional and amateur surfers driving into town for the legendary Mavericks surfing events off the coast of Pillar Point, a five minute drive from the house.
