"This was the perfect place for a special family weekend… Conveniently located close to shops and restaurants, yet you feel like you're far away because there are expansive ocean views from the entire living/kitchen area. Stunning sunsets! And if you love watching wildlife, you'll be in heaven. We were lucky enough to see a pod of dolphins swim past, awesome formations of pelicans (literally 100's at a time), and lots of whale spouts. There's plenty of sleeping space, and it was such a joy to cook in the wonderful kitchen. Thank you, Gary & Nancy, for all your kindness, for sharing your gem of a house, and for helping to make this a weekend we'll never forget."

"I stayed at this lovely and love home with 7 other women. The home is large with areas to spread out. Beautiful and peceful location.
Well equipped kitchen.
Could use more seating in living eiom/family room.
Awkward set up for bathrooms as no bathroom on main level without going through a bedroom. But overall good location for a large family or group of close friends."

"Jeff’s home in the tranquil Ocean Colony gated community in Half Moon Bay has been an outstanding home base for our family’s enjoyment of everything that Half Moon Bay and the California coast has to offer. Our family uses Jeff’s home as our vacation base for hiking, days on the several excellent local beaches, and general relaxation. The key access to the California Coastal trails via the Ritz Carlton hotel next door to Ocean Colony is an added plus. Jeff is a very responsive host and a pleasure to work with. We have now rented from Jeff during the past three summers; we definitely plan to come back and rent this home from Jeff next summer."

"Sweeping ocean views, with spectacular sunsets. A peek over the property edge will bring the neighboring tide pools into view... seals...pelicans....and people exploring the environs -- 50 feet below.
If you are fortunate enough to find an opening for this peaceful slice of perfection, do not hesitate.
While modest in size (estimate ~400 sf, excluding deck), design in layout and appointments are perfect for the property (Driftwood Cottage). It balances upscale and comfort while avoiding any sense of fussiness.
Our hosts were gracious and welcoming -- they provided restocking of paper supplies as needed along with fulfilling some miscellaneous requests. All low key and efficiently.
Just what we were looking for --and the best vacation in the area we've ever had.
We've spent time in HMB each summer for the past 4 years--having stayed at the Beach House, Cypress Inn and Landis Shores -- with a priority on the "ocean front" experience. By far, this property offered the best atmosphere, views and overall comfort. We were actually sad to leave."
