Lovely place on small coastal town

  • 5 of 5

Great place. Very close to the beach. Litteraly couple of blocks away. E Granada is located for staying in the Bay Area. You're 20 minutes from The City, hour to Santa Cruz and an hour to win country. The apartment was clean with all the comforts from home.

Great Option for Half Moon Bay

  • 2 of 5

We actually enjoyed our stay.

The bedding was nice and the property was attended to.

This is good basic accommodations that worked well for our family while on a San Francisco sight seeing trip. We liked being on the coast away from the city. We felt very safe and enjoyed the peaceful vibe of the coastal community. (the construction across the street did take away from the serenity, but should only be a temporary effect).

The Silverware was a little bit like a college dorm, or grab bag from the second hand thrift store. but it did work for us to enjoy our ice cream from the local market. :) When we arrived the dishes had been run in the dishwasher but they were not clean. Probably because there was no dishwashing soap supplied. We had to go buy a supply for our "one time" use of the dishwasher.

The place worked for us, but I feel like I paid a bit too much for what we got. perhaps it is market priced, but we observed these few items that caught our attention.

I will say, the owner was responsive with our pre trip questions. My text message was promptly return with a helpful reply. we wish them well. with a couple of points of attention we would have given a more positive review.

Owner's Response: Thanks for sharing your experience at the Coronado Apartments. As I read your review I was pleased to hear you enjoyed yourselves, found it comfortable and that it worked well for your family. I then saw the rating you gave, and was shocked! Rest assured there is a good supply of dish soap now, and the cleaners have been instructed to have the dishwasher empty for arriving guests.

Immaculately clean apartment in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Apartment only steps from beach. Even an ocean view from living room. Was very clean and well appointed. So handy to have washer and dryer in unit. Beds were very comfortable with high end linens. Half moon bay very interesting town. Was foggy throughout our entire 4 day stay but the town was charming with great restaurants. Fantastic hiking nearby. Highlight of stay was the grey whales very close to shore. Enjoyed coffee and homemade pastries at oceanside coffee shop while watching whales spout and breach. Enjoyed many bowls of chowder, a local favorite, probably due to the cooler dampish climate. Would definitely return!

Fun Place

  • 5 of 5

We loved our little weekend getaway at this beachy rental. Easy to get to Main Street of Half Moon and you can see the beach from the front stoop.

Lots of great food for a fun vacation destination and an easy trip from San Fran, although you are so far from city living you don't even feel like you are only 30 minutes outside of SF. We recommend a beer at Hop Dogma which is steps from the unit.

Thanks for the hospitality.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

I recently discovered this rental while planning for a visit from my Auntie. She has lived in San Francisco and did not care about too much city time.

This place was PERFECT she was traveling with a friend and this rental was more than we could have asked for!

In a quiet neighborhood, it featured 2 bedrooms,living/dining area good sized kitchen with a washer/dryer.

El Granada is a cute beach/surfer town with good restaurants, beach access, and a Brewery!

It was a perfect "base camp" for their visit and they enjoyed it thoroughly.

The owner could not have been nicer and accommodated us on several requests.

I highly recommend this vacation rental.
