ELEGANT OCEAN FRONT AMBIANCE!

RELISH the OCEAN FRONT VIEWS ...

LISTEN to the WAVES ....

FEEL the BREEZE ....

BREATHE IN the FRESH OCEAN AIR ...

Nothing Between you and the ocean atop the bluffs of this protected, Fitzgerald Marine Life Preserve.

You have stumbled, upon an incredible ocean front beach cottage. This Half Moon Bay, Cottage is luxuriously furnished with our guests comfort and privacy our priority. Falling asleep and waking up 30 Feet from the Pacific Ocean is like a dream. It really, doesn't get much better.

Not appropriate for young children, there is a 40 Foot Cliff to the beach below, at the end of our property.

The shared, garden area has a gas firepit, with a lounge sectional overlooking the ocean. Nothing in between you and the expansive pacific ocean. This area is shared between both of our cottages, situated far enough away from the cottages to have your private time with the beautiful ocean views.

There are 2 seperated cottages on this property. These two cottages were built in 1906, visited by Jack London. They both have been professionally designed to take full advantage of the Ocean Views , you're able to see the ocean from every living space inside each cottage, including each comfy king bed.

The luxurious king bed is a whiite leather pillow top king bed with an added memory foam for an unbelievable nights sleep. Our guests repeat each other , how visiting this close to the ocean is Relaxing, Rejuvinating for the body and soul. You cannot be closer to the ocean, unless you were camping on the beach below.

The garden area is shared between the two cottages. There is a lounge seating area around the Gas fire pit also recliner lounge chairs. For your privacy they both have their own private decking with beautiful outdoor furniture. Its all about your comfort your privacy with views of the Ocean.

Driftwood Cottage is a studio lay-out, overlooking the Marine Life Refuge. Watch the Sea Lions resting below your Private Garden. The sun sets directly in front of you, the Beauty is Awe inspiring!


Within a minute from the front door your able to walk to the beach below. Exploring the tide pools at low tide is another activity, bring sturdy shoes. You may take an easy 5 minute hike through a magical 100 Year old Cypress Forest above the Marine Refuge. This 5 min. hike leads to another beautiful calm sandy beach to explore. Another 5 minute walk to the Distillery Restaurant situated on a cliff overlooking the Ocean, with the Legend of the Blue Lady.

The proximity of our cottage to Hiking, Beaches, Harbor and Restaurants is within 3 miles. There is a paved Bike / Walking trail from the Princeton Harbor to Half Moon Bay along the Beautiful Beaches on the coast (about 10mi long). Our proximity to San Francisco, the Wine Country or Monterey makes it easy for a day trip in any direction in the San Francisco Bay Area.

After a day of activity, it is Amazing to sit at the Gas Firepit and watch the Sun sizzle into the Pacific Ocean with your favorite beverage in hand, a warm cozy blanket and toast, to another day at the Beach!

Aloha! and Welcome to a Slower Pace at the Ocean...
