About the property

4 Bedroom, 3.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 10, Minimum stay Fr-Su 3 nights, Mo-Th 2 nights

Located right on the ocean side of Highway One, Pescadero Escape is a peaceful retreat for your extended family to get away from it all. This 5,000 sq.ft. home comfortably sleeps 10 with 4 bedrooms, 2 family rooms, and an office. Enjoy a 180 degree view of the ocean and access to a secluded beach. Watch the sunset in complete comfort from the fully enclosed sunroom and have fun with family and friends in the spacious kitchen, family and dining rooms. With the house sitting on 1 acre of land, there is plenty of privacy.

Pescadero Escape is close to key attractions such as the quaint town of Pescadero, Pigeon Point Lighthouse, Ano Nuevo State Park, Butano State Park and numerous State Beaches each with its own unique character. Half Moon Bay is located 20 minutes to the North and Santa Cruz is 30 minutes to the South. San Francisco, SFO, Palo Alto, San Jose, and SJC airport are all about an hour away.

Popular activities include beach walks, exploring tide pools, biking, fishing, kayaking, surfing, bird watching right on the property or at nearby Pescadero marsh, nature photography, and hiking in the coastal redwood forests.

Note, this home is also an escape from technology, allowing guests to relax and enjoy the beautiful setting in the company of those they care about. There is no television reception (there are, however, a flatscreen TV with HDMI port and a Blu-ray/DVD I player).

All but Verizon phone reception is sporadic and email / internet access is through a Verizon mobile hotspot. It can be a bit on the slow side and it data limited. The near-by town of Pescadero has good phone reception for all carriers and free public Wi-fi. The Country Store and Duarte's Tavern double as our local sports bars.

The minimum stay is three nights except

- Monday through Thursday when it is two nights with a reduced cleaning fee of $200,

- June through August when it is four nights

Due to parking limitations and water restrictions this house is not suitable for large festivities or events such as weddings, receptions or similar celebrations.

For Tesla drivers there is a 50A Tesla charger in the garage.

A must for a family get- away

  • 5 of 5

The incredible ocean view from Stephen's home cannot be compared to any resort or hotel that we have ever stayed at. You are truly RIGHT on the water and the semi-private beach below (only a 1 minute walk away) is one in a million. It is clean, peaceful and filled with gorgeous stones and ocean life! One feels truly away from it all while staying there. The ocean view from nearly every room is mesmirizing. We enjoyed flying kites, sitting by the fire and a few trips into town to eat at Duarte's. Perfect for a family gathering or small reunion of sorts. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Spectacular Setting

  • 5 of 5

Five days here in this immaculate and exceptional property while attending our son's nearby wedding. Grandchildren loved exploring the beach and watching seals. We were all entranced by the grandstand view of the pounding surf. Thinking we may try to return with family and more time to enjoy the area.

Incredible Annual Family Gathering Making Memories to Last a Lifetime

  • 5 of 5

With our 3 children grown & on their own it's tough to gather everyone together, to find a location that works for us all. Pescadero Escape does this and more. No arguing over who gets the room with the king bed, there is one for everyone plus space for their little ones. The layout of the house allows impromptu one on one conversations, those times that strengthen bonds between us all. The open floor plan of the kitchen / dining room allows us to cook, eat, and celebrate life together.

The look on little one’s faces & squeals of excitement & happiness when they arrived & looked out from the sunroom with remembrance of our last visit, will stay with me forever. They were excited to find toys beneath the window seat downstairs, remembering them from their last visit. Memories being made.

The sunroom was also the favorite place of the adults, with the little ones a few feet off in the living room playing for hours when not outside. We witnessed glorious sunsets each evening and great finds beach combing during the low tides. The new deck was perfect for watching the little ones while soaking in some sun, watching whales, dolphins, sea lions, boats, birds and .... a bunny.

This kitchen is meant for some serious cooking, which we all enjoy doing - especially as the ocean & sky are in full view. The house is fully stocked with all that you would need and is pretty easy to keep clean as you go through your day.

Ocean views are stunning; constant walks out to the flagpole and down to the beach kept us entertained. A must is picking up soup at Duartes and while we miss the Pescadero Store, Arcangeli Grocery store offers good meat/produce among other items. Harley Farms is a must for us as well, picking up soaps & lotions & cheeses as part of our tradition.

We found we could use my Verizon iPad as an internet hot spot allowing the kids to do a bit of needed work on their online businesses which took stress off of them, while hubby & I relished in being unplugged.

We feel so fortunate that Stefan/family offer their spectacular home for getaways, thank you.

The contentful peacefulness that comes home with me lasts a long time giving way to excitement thinking of our next visit.

Fantastic getaway home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, restful few days in this beautiful retreat. The furnishings and art were perfect for that stretch of coast. Stefan, the homeowner, greeted us and made sure that all was OK. Great in every way!
