This stay ranks up with our top vacations. Such a beautiful setting with amazing sunsets and sunrises. Loved our wake up call from a fishing tour boat heading out in the morning. “Good morning everyone, if you will come closer we can go over the safety rules”. I think next trip we will book that excursion.

The houseboat has absolutely everything we needed. Albeit the fore cabin is small and downstairs- it never bothered us. We were very warm and the mattress was incredibly comfortable. As sleep number bed owners - we are pretty picky. As with any boat or camper, the shower and toilet can be tricky. Cynthia talked us through it on arrival and we had no issues with either. The kitchen area is nicely laid out and we SO APPRECIATED the bottle of wine and chocolates that greeted us! We had decided to eat out most of the time in this trip - but when we come again we can definately stock up at Safeway and eat in. There is a variety of awesome microwave cookware and a large microwave. We were stocked with coffee for all 3 days and even enjoyed a toasted pop tart one morning.

Cynthia was great to work with and check-in and check out were very easy! Can’t wait to return!

It was an awesome space and great experience!

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I love Half Moon Bay and always look for somewhere to stay near the water. What better than to be on the water!! The boat was very clean and well kept. The only reason I didn’t give a five star was that the bed is a little awkward. It is below deck with little head room. That said, we both slept fine and stayed plenty warm with the electric blanket on. All in all a great stay!

My brother and I shared the boat for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • 5 of 5

The boat is clean and well kept. I was happy to see Cynthia putting fresh linens on the bed and finishing up sanitising upon our arrival. Confirming the cleanliness of the place. The boat was cozy and warm with an electric blanket and a small fire place. The area is safe and welcoming. Perfect location, walking distance to Mavericks beaches and several delicious restaurants near by. Cynthia stocks the boat with coffee, wine & some nice snacks. She was hospitable and informative. I will definitely stay here again.

Could not have been a more relaxing location with sounds, and smell of the salty crisp air

I got to take my girl friend to the boat for her birthday. Both have never stay on a boat like that which was awesome. The town and Bars/breweries are very fun. You honestly couldn’t have asked for a better first time doing something.

Very Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying on this boat. It is a quaint little houseboat in the harbor. Cynthia makes sure you know how to operate everything and makes sure you feel comfortable. There's so much to do in the area or just stay on the boat and relax. We hope to come back for another stay.

We really enjoyed the houseboat experience, the views of the harbor, the little extras:music/wine

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed the houseboat experience, the views of the harbor, the little touches that were added: music and wine and snacks. Even though we only had a crock pot and microwave to use for meals- it worked out well! We were able to walk from the dock to the bluffs and beach to see the beautiful vistas and watch the powerful waves! Even though there was a powerful storm that passed through with 40 ft waves on the other side of the jetty- the harbor itself just had large swells and the houseboat endured It well. There was some rocking but not as much as I anticipated- mostly lots of noise from a neighboring boat's tarp/awning. The marine toilet requires hand pumping and the hot shower is tiny but such a plus that there is one onboard. We would definitely consider coming again!!
