About the property

4 Beds, 3 Baths, A Gourmet Kitchen And A Large Fenced-in Wooded Yard

Half a block from a grassy field atop the ocean bluff and walking distance from downtown. This is a quiet residential neighborhood that is a great place for a family vacation, but not a good place for large parties. Master suite is large with Cal King, raised ceilings and private bathroom with shower. Room 2 is moderately sized with a king bed and private bathroom with shower. Room 3 has a bunk bed with a full (54x75) on bottom and twin (39x75) on top. last room is small and has 2 twins side by side. There is a 3rd common bathroom with a bath and shower (remodeled 2016). There is a TV with DVD/BuRay and wireless internet. We have a great kitchen for cooking with dishes/pots/pans etc.

Perfect place for a quiet family getaway...

  • 5 of 5

Just far enough from the city to have peace and quiet when you need it, and super close to the beautiful coast. Had everything we needed and we enjoyed our stay immensely.

A Great Place to Enjoy the Coast in the San Francisco Bay Area

  • 5 of 5

The home is very comfortable with a layout that lends to both individual privacy and getting together as a group. We found it to be much more convenient than staying in hotel rooms. Preparing meals in the well-equipped kitchen was fun, and as a result, we enjoyed meals at home much more often than we had expected. The home has a warm feeling. The owners keep the home in great condition and well-stocked with plenty of supplies.

The home is also very well located. It is so close to the ocean that we went to the beach often, taking long walks along the beach and along the bluffs just above the beach.

One of the highlights of our trip was to visit Ano Nuevo State Park about 25 miles south on the coast. We really enjoyed the two-and-a-half hour guided tour to see the elephant seals that come ashore there, primarily between mid-December and mid-March.

A stay at this home would be fun any time of the year.

Great location and owner

  • 5 of 5

I was here with a few old friends for four days. We were all happy with the location. The house had everything we needed. it is very close to a nice beach with pleasant walking and biking trails. The property owner was very friendly and helpful and responded very quickly to any questions.

Wonderful and well appointed property with easy access to walking / biking paths and ocean

  • 5 of 5

The property exceeded our expectations and was even closer to the ocean than we anticipated. The kitchen is very well stocked and everything was in good working order. The interior layout was such that it provided our large family group adequate privacy when desired along with ample common space to hang out together. There was always plenty of hot water and water pressure for showers. The owner did an excellent job of responding immediately to a couple of minor questions that we had (e.g., bonfire restrictions). The neighborhood is quiet and the neighbors are friendly. The property description / detail is spot on. We would definitely stay at this property again and recommend it to anyone who is looking for something as it described by the property owner.

Piller Point Harbor is 15 minutes north. Purchase fresh fish and crabs directly from commercial fishermen.
