About the owner: Fred and Annette love entertaining and sharing their property The Tree Tops Retreat for your enjoyment. They have created a restful retreat in the hills above El Granada (Half Moon Bay). If you are ready to get away from it all - this is the place. All the amenities you may expect from a four or five star resort are here for you to enjoy. We have recently added: luxurious robes for guests, beach towels in case you want to enjoy a day at the beach, electronics charging station in the kitchen, outside deck fire pit under the amazing stars and a brand new hot tub. Whats not to love about this amazing offering? For the most discerning - all of our bedding is new within the last year and includes high end linens, luxurious towels and robes and cushiony rugs underfoot. For those that may get a chill - we offer slippers which are washed after each guest to use, soft and sumptuous throw towels and warm and inviting gas fireplace in the living room and master bathroom. If we are missing anything = please let us know. We make it our goal to exceed all expectations.
Why the Owner Chose Moss Beach:
Annette and Fred purchased this property more than 10 years ago when they decided to move out of the city of San Francisco and truly embrace living life on vacation. This is a perfect relaxing home base for your Northern California, San Francisco, trip. The home is spacious and designed for entertaining. The retreat can comfortably can sleep six in three high end comfortable beds. Brand new Hot tub makes the relaxing even easier.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Placed up the hill from El Granada Surfers Beach (one mile) and Sams Chowder House (Restaurant and Bar) the weather is much sunnier, warmer and clearer than many locations in the Coastal area that are lower or closer to the ocean. Location is often warm into the 70s during the day with minimal wind. Average year round weather here in El Granada mid 60s to 70s during the day with strong sunshine most days. Evenings are cooler and may include stronger breeze, fog and at times drizzle.
