Property description

With a king and queen bed and one bathroom, this home provides the cozy feel perfect for spending some time on the Coast. Enjoy the evening sunset in the hot tub out back or cook yourself a homemade pizza in the outdoor pizza oven. Popular Sam's chowder house is a quick walk away. Ketch Joanne, Barbaras Fishtrap, and (Zagat rated) Mezzalua are also close by.
With gorgeous views of the Princeton Harbor and located on your own private bluff, this quiet, super comfortable and very clean home is perfect for that romantic getaway, quiet personal retreat, or for small families. This charming home is a great escape for any beach/coast lover. The home is tastefully decorated in a contemporary style with a soothing and warm laid back feel. Enjoy the spectacular Harbor and beach views from the cozy dining and living rooms.
Comfortable bedding, clean fresh towels and linen, a kitchen stocked with all the utensils required to make a tasty meal.

The home comes complete with washer and dryer to help wash away the day’s sand.
The backyard is large and has a stone oven for baking anything outdoors and is complete with a hot tub to enjoy the rich, colorful sunsets.
This home is perfect for a peaceful romantic retreat, or a fun family vacation. We are located approx 8 minutes from beautiful downtown Half Moon Bay, 30 minutes from San Francisco, 45 minutes from Santa Cruz and the Silicon Valley, and one and a half hours from Monterey.
Located near some of the great surf spots in the area, take your board and walk to the nearest beach. World famous Mavericks surf spot can be seen across the harbor through the telescope. Watch for the whales and the occasional dolphin from the dining room. Nearby you can walk to the Princeton Harbor for shopping, dining, kayaking, charter fishing, whale watching trips and local nightlife. Or visit downtown Half Moon Bay for a more unique shopping experience, only a 10 minute drive down the beautiful coastline!
We look forward to sharing our wonderful beach cottage with you. Pamper yourself and come experience all the wonders of Half Moon Bay and the beautiful coastal surroundings.
