About Guliz des Tombe

We are a small family of three -- plus a dog and a cat. We chose to live in Half Moon Bay because we believe in the quality life. We both work from home so we are always available in person when we are in town. We travel quite a bit for fun and we welcome new friends. Our door is always open.

Guliz des Tombe purchased this cabin in 2014

What makes this cabin unique

Truly next to the ocean -- we bike, walk, run next to the ocean every day. Watching the birds, the whales, dolphins, seals -- we have a 5 mile beach that seems to be endless about a 7 minute walk right outside your front door.

You can bike to the Ritz Carlton (4 miles of ocean front biking) and have a happy hour beverage while listening to the bagpipes. (Beware though the gates back close at sunset).

The air is so pure here it tastes sweet -- we think we live in paradise and we hope you think so too.

The temperature here is always a tad bit chilly -- more rainy in the winter, more foggy in the summer. Our best times are during the fall and spring.

Charming Beach Cottage
average rating of 4.810811 based on 37 reviews

Cute, quaint little studio cottage with a cute little garden/patio area.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for a couple looking for a quiet getaway. It could sleep 4 but would be pretty tight. Creative way to add a toilet and shower right off the kitchen area (not super private, but it works). Close walk to the coastal trail and dog friendly beach! Comfy, soft bed. Would definitely stay here again!

Amazing little cottage

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage was perfect for our girl get away. It was very clean and comfortable. The bed downstairs was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on. When we got there there was no fire pit on the patio. Matt had one on order and as soon as he received it he brought it over and installed it. He was always there to please. Amazing week.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great visit to Half Moon Bay and this cottage worked out perfectly. It was just the right amount of space for my husband and I and our daughter. She loved the loft space and it gave her some privacy as well. The walk to the beach was really nice and the area was just what we were hoping. Very laid back. We really appreciated the recommendations on local sites and restaurants, too. It was a great vacation! Thanks!

A Perfect Place for Me

  • 5 of 5

It's hard to imagine that this darling cottage could be more perfect. It is so tiny and the clever use of space has made it perfect for a comfortable stay. The deck served as the ideal place for a dinner party. When the weather was cold and foggy, the cottage was a cozy place to curl up and read. On sunny days the choice between beach or town was tempting. The location was perfect for both. Matt and Guliz were delightful hosts and helped me acquaint myself with places to go and things to do. I am eager to visit again next year.

Perfect beach bungalow

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, welcoming and well appointed. Great for a couple or a close 4 some.

Has a European vibe! We enjoyed sipping a glass of wine by the fire pit and enjoying the Half Moon Bay ambiance. We would definitely stay there again.
