Simply beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in Montara. We were there for a family wedding and it was a perfect place to relax and get ready before heading out to all the festivities. The home is spacious and gorgeous with breathtaking views. Richard was a kind and gracious host. We look forward to our return!

What a great way to visit to San Francisco!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful visit to San Francisco by way of a beautiful home in Montara, California right across the street from the beautiful Pacific Ocean! We found the Sekar home roomy, clean and accommodating along with a beautiful view of the beach. It was great to relax after a day of sightseeing in San Francisco and awake to the sounds of the waves in the morning in this quiet beach town just minutes from the city. We found the home spacious with large bedrooms, kitchen facilities and living areas with a bathroom in each bedroom which is always a plus when you have small children. The home appears to have been recently remodeled with new paint, light fixtures and all the amenities you could ask for. The large deck and spiral staircase to a deck on the roof was a great addition for whale watching off of the coast. We definitely enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning soon.

We loved the comfort of this house and the amazing decks with great views. Saw tons of whales and enjoyed the good location for hiking and beach walking. The house was well stocked and had everything we needed.

Amazing house!

  • 5 of 5

The house was just perfect for our family. Three extra large bedrooms each with their own bathroom worked perfectly for our two sons each with a 13 month old baby. And the upper deck was the perfect perch to watch the sunset and whale watch. On Saturday we had lots of whales parading by and the most beautiful sunset (red sun... so unusual). We are going to plan to come back next year!!!!

Why Richard Sekar chose Montara

This house was built as a getaway from hectic city life, while still remaining in close proximity to the city. Peaceful and relaxing, it is exactly what we needed whenever we wanted a break. Our family agrees on one thing: total relaxation when you're watching the waves from the comfort of the house.

What makes this house unique


* Beach and Ocean view from inside and

outside of the house.

* Very clean and secluded Montara beach.

~200 feet from the beach...literally stone

throw-away distance.

* One side Ocean view and the other side

view of the mountains and woods.

* Most relaxing activity is simply lying down on

the top open deck and listening to the

sound of the waves, seeing the Pacific

Ocean while enjoying the sun.

* Large house and spacious
