About the owner: Greetings! My name is Michael and I run the Tribal Art Gallery located below the Loft & above the Garden Flat. I love the Half Moon Bay area as it has so much variety, including the wonderful marina, and our local West Point beach, adjacent to Mavericks Big Wave surf Beach. Half Moon Bay has a quaint downtown with lots of amazing restaurants, and a variety unusual Art, as well as amazing shopping opportunities. Renting the Loft is my way of sharing the HMB experience I enjoy with others. I am close by & always available for the needs of guests. The gallery is by appointment, so foot traffic is minimal
Why the Owner Chose Moss Beach: Princeton by the Sea, where the property is located, about 9 square blocks in size, was the original center for crab & general commercial fishing in the Bay Area, and still is mostly Boat repair, crab trap storage, the Yacht Club, boat rentals, and other marine related businesses or local artists. There is no commercial manufacturing allowed, and generally businesses must be marine or art related, like my gallery. Basically Pillar Point is a working Harbor, with a few artists & craftspeople in residence.
The 'Romeo Pier' in front of our property was the unloading point for fishermen's catch since the early 1800s. Many of the 'crabbers' have gone, and the community is slowly turning back into the small creative enterprise, private residence & artist colony, that it was back in the 1920's through the 1960's, when many famous artists and musicians lived in the old warehouses.
We are continually working to beautify the old buildings & general area, particularly the 3 blocks of beach road between the Harbor Marina, and West Point Beach where we are located; so that hopefully soon, there won't be as much of a contrast between the two areas, without having Princeton be 'touristy' like the Marina.
Sometimes it's interesting to get out of your normal environment, and experience something completely different, and that is why I was so taken with the property. Also it is the closest building to Mavericks Big Wave surfing beach, which to surfing enthusiasts is what a cozy chalet at the foot of Mt Everest would be to avid climbers. We have a lot of water sports and fishing activity in the harbor, as well as wonderful hiking on the Point & bird watching at the estuary across the street.
