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.

The views from this house are B E A U T I F U L

We've been coming to Kathy and Michael's Bluff House for years, every time we take our vacation in California... here's why:

It's exactly as pictured, great location, and you can even walk to world-class hiking (McNee Ranch). Open floor plan, spacious with ample opportunity for privacy (for couples), a full kitchen, and a nice washer/dryer in house. Drive into Half Moon Bay and enjoy the downtown, or drive into San Francisco for the day -- for our family, it's the perfect stay on the coast.

Beautiful Ocean Escape

  • 5 of 5

I recently booked the enchanted ocean view bluff house for an annual girl's weekend. The house was amazing with a gorgeous view of the ocean. I cannot wait to book it again. It was everything I hoped for and more!

Better than the photos

  • 5 of 5

Four of us met at the Bluff House for some r&r and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is very comfortable and is perfectly arranged for two couples. Kathy was responsive to questions and had good instructions for the house and suggestions for places to visit nearby. We would stay here again.
