Why Kathy Rain chose Montara
It is amazing. High end furnishings for your comfort. Beds that will ensure your best sleep. Exceptionally clean. Hypoallergenic. Spacious layout with ultimate privacy between bedrooms. Beautiful views.
What makes this House unique
This beautiful location with views of the mountain coming down to the ocean never ceases to delight our senses. Love to hike Montara Mountain with it's many trails, walk the Coastal Bluff Trail in Half Moon Bay and the Pacifica Coastal Trail at Linda Mar. The Harbor area is a treat with kayak rental, boat excursions, restaurants and fresh fish off the boats. Being just 25 minutes from San Francisco makes for great day excursions. We are within a few hours of several wine regions. Our sleepy little town is amazing and affords a serene respite for the spirit.

Perfect house for a get away
My daughter and I had a wonderful getaway at this house. The house is a quick drive to amazing beaches and hikes, and several eateries are within walking distance. The views from this bluff house are also spectacular and the sound of the ocean were so soothing. The furnishings are true to the photographs and couches and day bed are so comfortable! Kitchen is well equipped. Beds were also extraordinarily comfortable. Also, plenty of extra blankets, pillows and supplies. We will be back!
We had the most amazing visit but don't want to say how fabulous our stay was because we'd like it to always be available!
Perfect location for our needs. Loved the views of the ocean. Everything was top notch. Would definitely stay here again
Our trip pl to San Francisco
This house is huge, more than enough for 4 people. Great views of the ocean, close walk to the beach. The beds are very comfortable, kitchen well equipped with everything that you might need, not to mention all of the extras that are included such as binoculars, beach chairs and a cooler. We met the owners the day before leaving. They are very friendly, we could have chatted for hours! A binder is provided with information about anything that you would need to know about the house. In addition, Kathy would immediately respond to any questions that I had about the area. If I was to give any suggestions at all about improving comfort for the guests, I would suggest darkening shades for the bedrooms so that we could sleep later than 7:00 a.m. (lol) and some storage in the main bathroom for toiletries. The ensuite has a large vanity with drawers/cupboards. The other suggestion would be another small table or two for placing drinks in the great room, maybe nesting tables? I loved the comfy chair in the corner with the foot stool but had to hold my drink or sit it on the floor. All in all, this was a great holiday and wonderful place to come back to each day after our adventures. I would definitely recommend this rental home, thank you Kathy and Michael!!
Thank you for the recommendations. They made sense to us so we have purchased a side table to go next to the chair with ottoman in the Great Room. We have wondered about light in the bedrooms. You are the first guest to mention it. I guess everyone else has gotten up and out early!. We have added room darkening curtains to both bedrooms for those guest that want to sleep in. Probably most important after a long flight to the Bay Area.
Beautiful, quiet and roomy Resort Home
The location and view from the front of the home is priceless. Even on a foggy day, the view is amazing. The home was very clean and the open concept design with the kitchen, dining area and family room is perfect.
Beautiful house on the bluffs
We loved our stay in Montara. The views from the house were stunning. Lots of things to do and see in the area such as beaches, the lighthouse and of course the food! Highly recommend La Costanera which is within walking distance.
You wlll arrive at a destination resort area on the Half Moon Bay Coast. Beautiful beach boardwalk, pier and harbor, restaurants, fresh fish to bring back, whale watching and deep sea fishing excursions. 25 minutes to San Francisco.
Hiking trails are literally outside the front door. Kayaking is in the Harbor just 3 miles away where you can also paddel board and wind surf. Montara Beach is a long white sand beach with good surfing. Mavericks surf is 3 miles away. Bicycle trails are everywhere including Montara Mountain with many off path trails for biking and horseback riding. Stables are within a few miles, and yes, you can ride your horse down to the beach in Half Moon Bay.
