Comments from past guests:

'We just wanted to thank you for the use of your house in Half Moon Bay. We did many
things while in the area, Alcatraz, Muir Woods, Wine Country, Fishermans Wharf Etc.
But when I asked our family what was their favorite thing, they said 'where we stayed'
It really is a nice place, and so peaceful. Everyone had their own space...'

This getaway is perfect for mature adults who want a relaxing upscale environment and amenities in a quiet community setting. Two skylights and surrounding windows provide natural light in the vaulted ceiling main living area, situated on the second floor, which gives its one of the best views in the gated community of Ocean Colony.

Each large uniquely decorated bedroom has view of either the fairway or mountains and is appointed with a quality queen-size bed and a full private bathroom. Hardwood floors abound. There is a balcony off the living/dining area and garden patio area off the downstairs bedrooms. A large drive plus a two-car garage provide off street parking. The residence is just a five-minute walk to the famed Ritz Carlton Hotel and ocean walkway.

As my guest and hopefully future friend, I am committed to make your stay enjoyable while respecting the quiet enjoyment of my neighbors and rules that govern the community.

General Location: Half an hour from San Francisco, San Francisco International Airport (SFO), Stanford and Palo Alto. Half Moon Bay is known for its hiking, biking, surfing, and kayaking, and picturesque downtown area with its local restaurants, shops, music, and theater. This coastal home is in the private gated community of Ocean Colony, and is a five-minute walk to the Ritz Carlton, beach and walking trails. Nearby beaches include Montara, Moss Beach, Half Moon Bay, San Gregorio, and Pescadero. This is also a great jumping off point for day trips to the wine country, and the cities of Santa Cruz and Monterey, Muir Woods, Stinson Beach and Stanford.

Nearby is Princeton Harbor, a working harbor where you can buy your fresh/smoked fish, go on a deep-sea fishing trip, or fish/crab from the pier. The protected beaches within the harbor are wonderful for children, and the bluff walks above provide views of the world-famous Mavericks surfing area, elegant cypresses, and pounding waves. A flat paved 14-mile long bicycle trail runs from the Harbor along the beaches past Half Moon Bay and other trails are to be found along the bluffs, and coastal mountains.

The seaside town of Half Moon Bay with its galleries and restaurants are a short five minute drive north. Enjoy the culinary talents of chefs at a host of restaurants, like the Navio at the Ritz-Carlton, or the award-winning Cetrella, or Zagat-rated Cafe Gibraltor, or watch the sunset from the Moss Beach Distillery or go to Duarte's in Pescadero and order their delectable artichoke soup.

Further south are San Gregorio and Pescadero with their beautiful beaches, bird marshes and Pigeon Point Lighthouse. Ano Nuevo State Park is home to the famous Elephant Seals (November through March reservations required). Sunny Santa Cruz has wonderful surfing beaches and Boardwalk is a short hour south. 20-min East you will find yourself in the redwoods, Skyline Blvd with its panoramic vistas of the Peninsula. Easy day trips include Napa/Sonoma Valley, Monterey Bay, Sacramento and Sausalito/Stinson Beach/Muir Woods.

Close by are several science/tech museums (Exploratorium/ San Jose Tech Museum), the Santa Cruz Boardwalk, Great America.
