Overview

About the property

Whale watch from Pacifica home 15 minutes to downtown SF

Our Pacific Oceanfront, Once-in-a-Lifetime home, is minutes from downtown San Francisco, Berkeley, and Silicon Valley, and provides a great place to entertain or a cozy and quiet retreat where you can fall asleep to the sound of waves.

Watch for dolphins, whales, sea birds, seals and sailboats from our huge deck and outdoor patio seating. The gas grill, patio furnishings, and garden make for a great entertaining and photo opportunities as you watch the sun set over the Pacific. Wake up to the widest views the Pacific has in store for you.

Our fully Furnished, fully equipped home has an open living/dining/kitchen plan featuring a dining table next to a fireplace, and a grand piano with cozy seating --all facing the ocean. Enjoy wireless internet, digital cable TV, and XBox360 in our living area. The chef's kitchen is built for friends and entertaining, and has a Wolf gas range/double griddle/2 ovens, a huge kitchen island and counter-space, and includes a Jura one-touch Espresso coffee maker, microwave, Thermomix, Bosch dishwasher, and all amenities. The in-house H3 washer/dryer adds convenience, as does ample free & safe street parking. There is an extra fridge in the garage for drinks and extra cold storage. We include all furnishings, linens, all kitchen needs, pantry, utilities, garden care, and wireless internet.

Our seaside home is in a friendly, private neighborhood and ready for your family holiday, girls’ getaway, or couples retreat. Find sandy beaches, surfing, pier fishing and pleasant walking courses right out the door, as well as grocery and organic markets and a few local cafes and eateries. We are on the sea but surrounded by Golden Gate and State Parks (Mori Point, San Pedro Valley, Sweeney Ridge) for walking/hiking and mountain biking, and are one mile from the Sharp Park 18-hole public golf course.

This home has easy access to Highway1 and is 12 min to SFO airport, 12 min to downtown SF on I280, 40 minutes by BART to Berkeley, and is 30 minutes to Stanford, Sand Hill, or 35 minutes to Cupertino.

Cathy was very helpful and accomodating.

  • 5 of 5

We loved it. By the ocean and being able to see whales everyday was awesome. Of course the sunset and the proximity to San Francisco.

Owner's Response: Thank you! So glad you were also able to see whales-- it is pretty incredible to see Greys and Humpbacks and dolphins from our seaside garden and windows. We are so happy you and your family enjoyed our home-- You were ideal guests, gracious and thoughtful. We'd love to host you again!

Cute bungalow by the sea

  • 5 of 5

This was a very cute, small home by the sea. Lovely owners were communicative and responsive to text messages. Home was tidy and kitchen had everything needed. Beds were comfortable and bathrooms clean. House was in a quiet neighborhood and within easy walking distance to downtown Pacifica. Thermostat was set a little on the warm side so we just turned it down once we realized (embarrassed) the round display unit was also a knob. Plenty of counter space and seating. Backyard and view of the ocean from the deck was very nice. Weather didn’t cooperate for a sunset photo so maybe next time. Might need instructions on how to use the oven/broiler if we go back. Neighbor’s foster dog was absolutely adorable and came to visit the backyard—but only while we were inside. He or she left tiny doggie “presents,” which we were happy to pick up. No biggie. There was, however, a little trash from prior visitors in the backyard. Wish other renters were more considerate and mindful that they are staying as *guests* in someone’s home! Clearly, this is a family’s personal, beach hideaway and should be treated respectfully. Would love to visit again.

Epic sunrise and sunset

  • 5 of 5

Perfect stay. The views from the backyard are like nothing I've ever seen before, you literally have the ocean for yourself. Cathy and Tom were available for any questions the whole time and the inside of the house shows how much love they've put into it, wonderful art and instruments all over the place. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a memorable weekend in nature and I hope I can come back in the future. Thanks again Cathy and Tom!

Hangs over the pacific ocean.

  • 4 of 5

This property is crazy beautiful. On an unassuming little street, from the road it looks like nothing. But walk through the front door, keep walking through the back door and you are literally standing over the Pacific Ocean. The house was thoughtfully stocked with all sorts of food and convenience items that we would never have expected any host to provide.
