  • mom's birthday weekend

    "We stayed here with three generations for a birthday weekend celebration on the coast. The home is beautiful, comfortable, and charming. The location is secluded and quiet, but a quick drive to great coffee shops, beaches, fruit stands, and grocery stores. My two kids (1 and 4 years) enjoyed the chickens, gecko, cats (outdoors only), bunnies, hammock, and garden. My son loved the kids books, and we found the kids books in French to be an added bonus for us as French speakers. The home has a beautiful deck with a hot tub, grill, and outdoor seating. The inside was clean with lots of space for our group. The owner was very helpful before, during, and after our stay (especially since we left something behind!) One thing to know is that there are others living on the property. We did worry a bit about the kids making noise too early in the morning, but no one complained, and the people we encountered were friendly. The only thing that took a little getting used to for us was the water situation- the tap water is from the creek and not suitable for drinking. It was actually no big deal in the end. The owner provides ample, clean bottled water for cooking and drinking. The water pressure in the upstairs shower was a bit weak, and it was a bit hard to bathe the kids in the beautiful downstairs claw foot tub. But, we did stay here for the 100+ year old charm, so it comes with the territory. We would definitely stay here again!"

  • Paradise

    "Awesome view, adorable cottage, everything you need at your fingertips, close to attractions, relaxing. Everything we hoped it would be and more! Loved exploring the tide pools at low tide, seeing seals on the beach and walking the trails nearby. Could have sat on the deck and watched the ocean all day! Loved it! Hope we can return soon! Thanks for sharing your little piece of paradise!"

  • Relaxing retreat--Loved it!

    "Seaglass cottage was amazing! I spent a great, relaxing long weekend here. The tide pools (3 minute walk) were incredible--saw lots of sea life and harbor seals on the beach! The walk along Fitzgerald Marine Preserve to Moss Beach Distillery (10 minute walk) was absolutely beautiful. I brought my dog. Dogs were not allowed on the beach where the tide pools were and not on some of the trails along the coast, but that was ok. The closest dog-friendly beach was a 2 minute drive north and we visited there and had a great time. The pier was about a 5 minute drive away and we were able to get fresh crab off the boats and amazing salt water taffy. When not exploring, it was wonderful to just sit outside and watch the waves, birds, and boats with a cup of coffee or glass of wine. Beautiful and relaxing. The cottage is next to another cottage (Driftwood Cottage) and both cottages are on the owner's property. So, while there is some privacy, you will see neighbors fairly often coming and going. This was not a problem at all for me. Carol and Jerome are great hosts and made me feel immediately comfortable. The cottage was very clean and everything you could want was there. Wifi worked very well. I will definitely be visiting again."

  • Mother of the Bride

    "This house is in a beautiful little neighborhood in Half Moon Bay, the views from the top deck of the house are absolutely amazing! We rented this home for 4 nights for my daughter's bridal party to stay and we set up a beautiful reception in the backyard. The owner is wonderful to work with, she responded quickly to my emails and any of my concerns. I did point out to her, after we left, that there were a few minor things around the home that needed some attention. She was very receptive and happy that I had pointed these things out to her and hopefully they've been fixed. I would definitely recommend this property and hopefully our family will return for a relaxing vacation, we need it after a hectic year of wedding planning!"
