Modern Private Studio Loft On The California Coast

Space 500 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

Recently remodeled and just blocks from the beach and downtown Half Moon Bay

Come share our paradise on the coast. Airy, modern attached in-law unit just blocks from the beach on the West side of Highway One (go to the beach without crossing the road!). Walk to the California Coastal Trail, Poplar Beach, or up to Main Street for food and shopping all in fifteen minutes or less. Enjoy a studio with loft with full kitchen, bathroom and queen bed for a cozy a coastal experience. Use the fold-out single bed in the living room for a third person if needed.


Attached in-law unit is a private lofted studio space with it's own full bathroom featuring large windows and a skylight that make it feel very light and open. The loft bedroom upstairs looks out on a grove of trees that you can see swaying in the wind while you lay in the queen bed. There are stairs up to the sleeping area and three steps up into the front entrance. The kitchen includes a full size fridge and freezer, stove, oven and basic cooking tools (pots, pans, etc.). The space has Wi-Fi, basic cable and tons of power outlets if you need to plug-in, but if you want to stay unplugged that's ok too.


The in-law shares a wall with the main house but has it's own entrance. The outside path is shared so don't be surprised if we see each other coming and going but we will be respectful of your privacy. The Very little sound transfers but we keep things quiet after dark and ask that guests do the same after 10pm. We created a folder with information about restaurants, activities and practical needs in and around Half Moon Bay that is in the unit but if there is anything special you need help figuring out don't hesitate to reach out.


It's a quiet, residential neighborhood without much traffic. Kids ride their bikes down the middle of the street and neighbors often say hello and chat as they pass on the road.

Getting around

Half Moon Bay is 35 minutes from San Francisco Airport, 45 minutes from San Francisco, and one hour from Santa Cruz on Highway One. From our unit it's a comfortable walk to the California Coastal Trail, Poplar Beach or in to downtown Half Moon Bay. With bikes you can take the paved coastal trail North to Miramar, El Granada and Princeton Harbor. You will need a car if you want to go beyond Half Moon Bay. Public transit is very limited and taxis/ride sharing services can be slow to arrive so plan ahead for further explorations and transit to or from the airport.

About David Rosen

Between my wife and I have had busy corporate careers that took us all over the world. We settled in the San Francisco and were hunting for that perfect mix of quiet and accessibility to the world. We found it in Half Moon Bay. Now we are just 45 minutes from San Francisco, 30 minutes from an international airport, but able to walk to the beach in ten minutes. We absolutely love it and love sharing it with friends, family, and guests.
