About the property


This is a quiet studio apartment with a private entrance, located in a rural area surrounded by open space and a state park. Perfect size for an individual or a couple. This space has a full kitchen, a private bathroom and laundry, and has very comfortable furnishings including a queen size bed with a 12 inch deep mattress. It also has a large flat screen TV and excellent internet reception. Phone reception, however is a little sketchy. I have installed a microcell for AT&T phones.

The property provides an opportunity to see a wide variety of raptors and other wild life such as deer, bobcats, foxes, coyotes wild turkeys and rabbits. Yet it is only 3 minutes from Main Street’s restaurants, boutiques and coffee shops. Ten minutes will get you to three local beaches and the coastal bluff trail, which is great for walking and biking. Since the trail goes along the ocean there is ample opportunity to see marine birds and mammals. Hiking is available at a local redwood preserve, and at the adjacent state park, a favorite destination for bird watchers. You also have within a short drive access to Montara Mountain and Devil’s Slide trail which has three observation platforms with benches and viewfinders. Other activities such as golf, kayaking, windsurfing and charter fishing are available. San Francisco and all the sites and amenities of the Bay Area are readily accessible. You could of course, elect to spend your days napping and your evenings dining at the many local restaurants with their diverse cuisines ranging from Italian, French and Mexican to Chinese, Thai and Indian. Bon appétit!

Note: If you have a conference at the Ritz, we are only 10 minutes away.

Quiet San Francisco Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time while staying at this property. I was looking for a quiet place to stay within commute distance of Stanford University that wasn't over crowded. This was the perfect spot as it was high in the hills and had nothing but wildlife around for miles. The accommodations were excellent as everything was extremely clean and well taken care of. Additionally, the owners were genuine and really made my son and I feel at home! I will be coming back!

Husbands Birthday getaway

  • 5 of 5

The studio was perfect for my husband and myself to celebrate his birthday on the coast. Jeanette was wonderful, She was there waiting to greet us at the door, even in the rain. She showed us every thing the studio had to offer us. Our little home away from home. She even had ideas for us to do and best places to eat in Half Moon Bay. They had binoculars we could use and all things for a day at the beach. (Basket for lunch, Chairs etc) Thank you so much Richard and Jeanette for making my husbands birthday weekend very memorable. We both had a great time and hope to return sometime soon !

Great stay!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this cozy, well-appointed studio. We especially enjoyed the bowl of chocolates and Peet's coffee! Our hosts checked in with us to make sure we had everything we needed.

Easy drive to any of the nearby beaches!
