Half Moon Bay house description

SEAL COVE BEACH HOUSE
$350 per week night.
This Home is new on VRBO, we welcome you to this comfortable, spacious beach house with amazing views.

This home is directly in front of the spectacular Seal Cove Beach, awesome ocean views, adjacent to the Cypress Bluff Trail along the Marine Reserve. Beautiful views of Seal Cove Beach from the upstairs and downstairs. This Beach House is across from the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve. The Cypress Beach House is the perfect location for your quiet beach vacation. Watch whales from the upstairs deck, walk along the park trails and saunter down to the beach only yards from the front door to watch seals or go tide pooling.

This is a tranquil quiet neighborhood within steps to Seal Cove Beach across from the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve. Please do not inquire if you are having a large gathering, party, wedding, or reception.

The furnishings and touches are all beach inspired. We provide the most comfortable beds you've ever slept on. You will appreciate the soft white 600 count white linens on all the beds. Everything you expect to find in a fine hotel and more, will be available at the Beach House; lots of towels, blow dryer, shampoo, etc.

A huge bonus is beach access and amazing walking paths through an old Cypress tree forest right outside the front door. Walk through this breathtaking forest overlooking Seal Cove Beach and watch the surf from above or explore the tide pools and harbor seals below on the sandy beach. You are also within walking distance to Maverick Surf Break. The bluffs are perfect for mountain biking or hiking. This area is a well kept secret - at least during the week when most visitors park on the other side of the reserve.

This fully equipped home, has a spacious kitchen which opens up to the living / dining / family rooms - all with the breath taking white water views. The Cypress forest views on one side, the ocean views and sunsets on the other side. The clean smells of the Beach and salt air, and the soothing, smells of the cypress trees are captured throughout this magical Beach Home.

The master bedroom has a king bed with added memory foam, for a comfortable sleep, with high grade bedding. The Spacious Master Bedroom has its own Private Master Bath with Peek a Boo Ocean Views from the Comfy Bed!

The second and third bedrooms, share a full bath downstairs. Second bedroom has a king bed with the high grade linens and memory foam for your added comfort. Third bedroom has a queen bed with high grade linens. There is also an air bed (queen) for the kiddies.

Laundry is downstairs, with a washer and dryer. The spiral stair case leads upstairs to the great room, kitchen and half bath. There are two decks, one off of the living room area overlooking the cypress trees. The second deck is off of the dining area overlooking the unobstructed ocean views. A weber gas grill is waiting for you to cook something scrumptious.

For a long or short weekend or a holiday week at this beach house , this treasure has something for everybody. Plenty of ocean views, a comfortable well stocked Beach Home. Once you park your car, there is NO Reason to get in your car again. You are able to walk to the beach, walk to the historic Moss Beach Distillery Restaurant and the Marine Reserve, or hike to Princeton By the Sea Harbor for fish and chips. Or stay home, watch the whales go by while you are lazing on the back deck.

It will be the vacation of a lifetime without going anywhere else.

                  Year Purchased: 1986

                  About the owner: We have loved the people and places on the coast for 28 years. This area has been a well kept secret for a long time and it's been fun to share it!

                  Why the Owner Chose Half Moon Bay:
                  Where else can you find tidepools, the beach, and a magical forest right outside your front door?!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  This is the only place I know of where you can be cooking in the kitchen or reading a book by the fireplace and still feel like you are at the beach! That is how amazing the view is.
