This is a very unique property. One of only a few houses in the San Francisco Bay Area that are directly on the water. Every room in this Pacific contemporary designed house overlooks the sprawling ocean. Visit old "speakeasies" from prohibition now turned into delightful pubs and restaurants. Dine out at one of a number of top-rated restaurants (including a Michelin), enjoy the Ritz Carlton Resort nearby, or cook indoors or outside. This house is a very special and spiritual place for romance or as a hub for sightseeing San Francisco, Napa Valley, Santa Cruz, Half Moon Bay, and much more. For outdoor enthusiasts the area has world-class road cycling, mountain biking. hiking, fishing, beach-combing, running....people come from miles around to stay in this location.

About Manager: Tom Wilkins
I am an entrepreneur, investor, speaker, and global traveler.
Manager: Tom Wilkins purchased this House in 2011
Why Manager: Tom Wilkins chose Moss Beach
I travel a lot. I have been everywhere. This is a very, very unique experience for those who love the ocean, exercise, art, good food and wine. The community is small and intimate yet San Francisco is only 25 mins away. I go to the Napa wine region on day trips and enjoy the sun and wine.
What makes this House unique
The house sits on a property that in the 1920's housed a series of cabins where they would retire Catholic nuns. Since then, it has become a large property (the largest on the water) with a small Pacific Contemporary designed house with beautiful art and well thought-out furniture and kitchen.
Wonderful home and unbelievable views of the ocean. Great stay and the manager did a fantastic job.
Will definitely be coming back outstanding amenities and could not ask for a better host than Tom!
Beautiful location with amazing sea views!
Tom the manager was extremely helpful throughout the process, including booking and the warm welcome.
The views from the terrace are fantastic, particularly when the sea otters are playing in the surf below! The living room is bright and airy, also with great views. A quiet haven from which it is easy to reach the bustle of San Francisco for activities there, and very convenient from the airport.
Easy to walk to the Moss Beach Distillery, and the golf at the Half Moon Bay Ritz-Carlton is excellent, alongside lunch at the Conservatory restaurant there.
One watch out is that it is a bit of stretch to describe it as 3 bedrooms--the third one has a sofa bed that can be made up if you are small or as our 15 year son is tall an inflatable mattress on the floor which whilst do-able is not ideal! We also had problems with smoke from the fireplace(our predecessors must have had as well as there was a whiff of smoke on arrival) and therefore tried it only once--might have been the direction of the wind but most likely the chimney needs sorting out and hopefully Tom is dealing with that!
Those caveats aside, a great rental!
We cannot say enough about this home and of course Tom! He greeted us at the home with everything anyone could need! He spent plenty of time acclimating us to the beautiful home and the Half Moon Bay Area. The views were stunning and every inch of the home was comfy! We did not want for anything! So sad to leave, but again Tom greeted us to say goodbye and make sure everything was up to his high standards. It definitely was. The home both met and exceeded our expectations and we miss it already!
This is a very special house with amazing view of the ocean, a complete sanctuary and perfect place for an escape and soak in the sights and sounds of the ocean. Very quite and peaceful. Quick access to San Francisco airport and the quaint downtown of Half Moon Bay. The house is well appointed and Tom the manager was fantastic. We will certainly return!
It was truly a great and relaxing stay. Tom was amazing at showing us the place, communicating with us, and making sure we had everything we needed during the stay. I've gone to a few VRBO type places and this was by far the best. Both in terms of location/house itself, as well as our interaction with the people in charge of managing this house. Cant wait to visit again.
