Kim' review (El Sobrante,Ca) Date of Stay: 09/03/10

Our family stayed at this beautiful home in September in preparation for our daughters wedding which was held at the golf links. We had 12 members of our family staying in the house and it was quite roomy. Within walking distance is the Ritz Carlton, and beach access, along with the golf links for golfing. Its a beautiful home, and I would stay here again.

Susan's review (San Ramon, CA USA) Date of arrival: May 21, 2010

We couldn't have been more pleased with this property! Its location and all of the amenities were more than we could ask for. The property owner is extremely gracious and easy to work with. The gated community is immaculate with beautiful paths to walk to the ocean cliffs, down to the beach and around the quiet, well-kept grounds.

Cindy's review (San Diego, Ca ) Date of Stay: June 2006

We had THE most amazing brunch at the Ritz to end our stay!!! Dining at Cafe Gibralter was an absolute feast for the taste buds. We enjoyed Cetrella on Sat., the food and music were delicious and delightful. (Definitely worth it!) We enjoyed shopping in Half Moon Bay and a horseback ride on the beach...picture perfect.

ACTIVITIES (on-site or near by): This coastal house is in the gated community of Ocean Colony, and is a five-minute walk to the Ritz Carlton, beach and walking trails. Near by beaches include Montara, Moss Beach, Half Moon Bay, San Gregorio, and Pescadero.

Enjoy Golf, Biking, Fishing, Shopping, Swimming, Live Music at Ritz, Horseback Riding, Diving, Surfing, Sailing, Walking, Dining at Half Moon Bay or other ocean view restaurants. This is the perfect location to access many California attractions, San Francisco 25 miles, short drives - Santa Cruz, Napa Valley, Great America, Six Flags Marine World, Monterey, Muir Woods, Stinson Beach and Stanford. San Francisco Airport (SFO) is about 25 minute drive.

Nearby (two miles), Princeton Harbor is a working harbor where you can buy your fish fresh or smoked. The protected beaches within the harbor are great for children, and the bluff walks above provide views of the world-famous Mavericks surfing area. A flat paved 14-mile long bicycle trail runs from the Harbor along the beaches past Half Moon Bay and other trails.

The seaside town of Half Moon Bay with its galleries and restaurants are a short five minute drive. Enjoy restaurants, like the Navio at the Ritz-Carlton, or the award-winning Cetrella, or Zagat-rated Cafe Gibraltor, or watch the sunset from the Moss Beach Distillery or go to Duarte's in Pescadero.

Spacious, comfortable, and perfect setting for our family celebration

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect setting to celebrate our mother's 70th birthday weekend. The house, bedroom, kitchen, and common areas were very comfortable and spacious for us adult children and our children to stay with our parents. We cooked large meals in the well-equipped kitchen and got to enjoy them in the festive dining room. The location of the house was also ideal: safe, quiet, and in very close proximity to the Ritz where we went for long runs along the paths and enjoyed a Sunday brunch. Thank you for providing the setting for a memorable and cherished weekend.

Great location, roomy, well equipped house.

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our 60th wedding anniversary with a week at 445 Fairway Drive together with daughters, their spouses and six grandchildren. Our children organized a wonderful dinner for 14 at the Ritz, a short walk away. My wife and I stayed over at the Ritz while the other 12 moved into the house for a family reunion. Everyone was pleased with the accommodations. We used the house as home base as we spent the week hiking in the redwood forests, going to the beach, visiting museums in San Francisco, and Filoli Gardens. Several evenings we walked to the Ritz for refreshments by the fire pits. There was plenty of parking for everyone who had to come and go for job commitments, and other non-vacation activities. The owners were a delight to deal with on all details.

Magnificent house

  • 5 of 5

We chose this location as it was closely located to Ritz-Carlton where we were attending a wedding. The home was beautifully equipped and just as described on the website. One day we really didn't even want to leave the house to go sightseeing as we just wanted to hang out there! It is just a few minute walk from Rtiz. There is a nice downtown of Half Moon Bay where we found a grocery store (with salad bar, bakery, etc) near the property if you'd like to prepare your own meals. We rented a SUV and it was no problem for us to get it into the gated community which is so beautiful. All in all it was a light, bright, lovely stay. Would definitely recommend this property and would love to stay here again some time!

  • 4 of 5

Our three night stay in this large, nicely equipped home was very pleasant.

With regard to previous review, we did not encounter any bats, spiders or need for deep cleaning as was asserted. The carpets looked freshly shampooed, the bathrooms and kitchen were very clean as were all the living spaces in the house. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, glasses pots and pans and all necessary housewares for a party of ten, as we were. The small putting green in the back yard was a particular hit with our two grandsons.

The reviews of this house go back as far as 2010 and there may be some wear and tear on the property through the 10 years of rentals. But the house is a very comfortable space for a large group in a beautiful neighborhood with access to all of the attractions of the Half Moon Bay coastal area. We would certainly rent again for another family retreat.
