About the Property
6 Bedroom, 3 Bath house (+ detached cottage that can be rented separately)
This recently remodeled 6 bedroom, 3 bath coastal home was once part of a prohibition-era train station. Located in tranquil Moss Beach, the house is only a block from the internationally recognized tide pools and beach at the James Fitzgerald protected Marine Reserve. It is a wonderful place to enjoy, walk, take the kids to learn about the tide pools, etc. It is in a beautiful and quiet neighborhood, with plenty of nearby restaurants and shopping. And don't forget to catch the yearly Half Moon Bay 'Art and Pumpkin Festival'. Also nearby is Mavericks, a world-famous surfing location that holds regular big-wave contests in Pillar Point Harbor, just north of Half Moon Bay at the village of Princeton-By-The-Sea.
The bedrooms are as follows:
One private queen bedroom and bath suite on the first floor. Upstairs you'll find the spacious master bedroom (and private bath) which contains a gorgeous 160-year-old hand carved bed, with an adjacent enclosed room containing an additional double, size antique, brass bed, which can be used as a private sixth bedroom. This room gets great sunlight. Also upstairs are three more spacious bedrooms, all with queen size beds. Altogether, you have 6 bedrooms.
Two full baths upstairs, one with claw foot tub and separate marble and travertine shower and a third vintage inspired bath with shower only. Rooms are spacious, and beds are comfortable. Ample room for dining, with separate common rooms for relaxing and socializing. You will love it.
We also have a separate cottage on the property that sleeps three and consists of one queen bed and one twin bed. The cottage rents for an additional $175 per night and requires a separate cleaning fee of $100. Please note in your inquiry if you wish to book the cottage and I can update the amount of your quote.
If you enjoy hiking, nearby Montara Mountain is a popular outdoor recreation spot, and home to the old Highway 1.
The coastside hosts several state parks and beaches, including: Half Moon Bay State Beach, Venice State Beach, Poplar State Beach, San Gregorio State Beach, and Pomponio State Beach.
Please Note: Though individuals under 18 are welcome at the property, we require that the person making the reservation be at least 25+ years old and accompany any minor guests.
Separate charge for events and/or large parties may apply.

Why the Owner Chose Moss Beach, CA, USA:
My home was not purchased to be a rental. When I don't have guests, I stay at the house, so that I can make sure that it is always welcoming to my guests. I have lived in this house for almost 40 years, and have raised my children here. I worked as a stager (decorator) by trade and I have used my creative talent in decorating my home and garden, for my own enjoyment and that of my guests.
