About Jim Wehrly

We are long-time residents of the San Francisco Bay area and spent many weekend days in Half Moon Bay as our children were growing up; but, job commutes and our children's schools kept us from moving to the coast. Once our children were all grown we purchased our second home in Half Moon Bay to fully enjoy more time within walking distance of the ocean and living in a friendly small community.

Jim Wehrly purchased this house in 2004

Why Jim Wehrly chose Half Moon Bay

Proximity and ease of access to the ocean along with the relaxing atmosphere of a small town that is focused on farming/retail businesses/tourism; while at the same time having less than a 1-hour drive to San Francisco. Also is less than a 1-hour drive to our other home.

What makes this house unique

Easy access, less than 10 minute walk to beach, drive into town of Half Moon Bay or drive to Princeton Harbor with excellent restaurants in both areas. Superb ocean views from several different rooms of our home so you can enjoy the changing weather patterns year-round without even leaving our house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were very fortunate to rent this home for a weekend. The pictures do not do justice – the home is gorgeous & the view is amazing. The house was very clean & comfortable and my guests enjoyed the spaciousness which gave them a feel of privacy. My guests commented that upon entering the home they did not feel as if they were in a strangers home – it felt like entering their own home which helped everyone relax & enjoy the time there. For those like myself who love to cook, you will enjoy the spacious kitchen & the dining area with two tables was perfect for serving all we prepared. The owner, Jim, is very enjoyable to work with. He was very responsive to the questions we had prior to checking in and was helpful while showing us around his home. Without question - we would rent this home again in a heartbeat. Thank you Jim for opening your home for us to enjoy!

Ladies Weekend in Half Moon Bay

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we felt like we were home! An enchanting garden and fall pumpkins welcomed us. This spacious home was comfortable and accommodated 4 ladies in town for a wedding weekend. We decided we wanted our own bedrooms and bathrooms and this home more than fit the bill. Even though we were 4 ladies this home can easily accommodate up to 10 people. Among all of the lovely touches, my favorite was the well stocked wine bar provided by the owners!

I wish we had more time there. Thank you Jim and family! Our stay was one for the books!

Great house, great location

  • 5 of 5

We were in Half Moon Bay for a wedding and wanted a house for our family. This was perfect for us. Wish we had had more time to enjoy the decks looking out over the ocean. Beautiful kitchen and common areas. I highly recommend it.

CA trip for golf and visiting family

  • 5 of 5

This house was indeed a very comfortable house for several couples traveling together for golf in Half Moon Bay and.touring San Francisco. Local spots are very close to visit for shopping and dining. Owners met us when we arrived and gave a tour of the house and showed us the amenities available. If traveling with 6+ people, this is the house for you.

Great House for a Gathering of Friends or Family

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lovely home over President's Day weekend. Our group consisted of 4 couples and a solo friend. We also had 3 babies with us. The house was a perfect place for us to hang out during a rainy weekend. The rooms are all very comfortable and there is ample space to have group meals. The kitchen is terrific. The views of the ocean are spectacular.

Extraordinary experience

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful home in a tranquil setting, a perfect spot for our mini 'family reunion' to celebrate mom's big birthday. And Jim was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Each of our group had their own space, the home was very family-friendly, highly comfortable, and the views were tremendous. To repeat some others' comments, the home is even better than the pictures suggest. Really cannot name a flaw in the whole situation. Thanks, Jim!

Wonderful Christmas, Equally wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

I personally didnt book the house but i was one of the party that stayed in Jim's beautiful house, We were in Half Moon Bay visiting fiance's relations, Jim was there to meet us after our long flight, and showed us round and explained everything to us which was fabulous, he had even decorated the house for Christmas which made it feel very homely and welcoming. It was a great size for when family came over to visit. Great location, beautiful views, very clean and tidy, comfortable rooms. I wish i could have picked the house up, (along with the views and weather) and bring it back to England with me.
