About Silvia and James Maher
My wife Silvia and I (James) have had the great fortune to be able to raise our two kids (Derek and Fasha) in such a beautiful place in the world. Now that they have grown and are about the business of making their own lives we decided to share our good fortune with others.
Silvia and James Maher purchased this Apartment in 1991
Why Silvia and James Maher chose Montara
We originally rented this house from Silvia's father when he temporarily left the medical field to serve as the country administrator of Costa Rica for the Peace Corps. Following he did a similar job in Nicaragua. After a five year hiatus he and his wife decided to settle in Denver Colorado. We were delighted buy this ocean view house and "take it off their hands".
What makes this Apartment unique

Follow the trail you can you can visit both a beautiful sand beach and rocky tide pool area. If nature is your thing then you be delighted with the many trials for hiking and biking.

Better than expected view and location with super hosts
We loved our stay in this clean, pleasant place. Silvia has quite an artistic eye for decor and gardening. Both were very helpful before and during our visit. Don't miss the lighthouse and hostel for FANTASTIC ocean views just minutes away by foot or car. Do bring a hooded windbreaker and layers for clothing.
Convenience South of San Fransisco
Silvia and James were excellent host. They had all conveniences needed. The rental was a great location for exploring areas south of San Fransisco and also close enough to SF that we could take a fantastic Segway tour at Golden Gate Park without having to leave too early in the morning to make a 10:00 tour without fighting traffic. Very much recommend this Montara spot.
The property was convenient and the view of the sea was lovely.
We had a wonderful time in Half Moon Bay at James and Sylvia’s beautiful home. The appartment was clean and comfortable with a fabulous view. Also the gift basket was much appreciated. We would definitely stay again.
If you’re staying on the coast, this is a fabulous rental! The view of the ocean from the lovely deck is great, and the location is convenient to all sorts of places up and down the coast. Silvia and James have really thought of the details, right down to board games. Our daughter loved playing Chinese checkers!
Silvia and James are super responsive communicators, which I really appreciated. This was a very comfortable space for our family of three; definitely recommend.
The suite is so comfortable and has everything needed for your “home away from home” adventure. Beautiful area! Thank you Sylvia and James...... love your artwork too😊
Very comfortable apartment in a great location!
This is a very nice apartment. A spacious, incredibly sunny living room with views of the sea, the lighthouse and the garden. A gas stove if you are chilly. Ten minutes walk from great hikes to Montara North Peak - acres of park and trails. A wonderful beach nearby. Short drive down the road to nice cafes - Ebb Tide on the seashore, the Barn and walking distance to breakfast at Here Comes the Sun and a great Peruvian restaurant looking out over the sea. Plus whale watching six mins drive away in Half Moon Bay. Silvia and James were great hosts. The apartment is well kitted out and we lacked for nothing. Terrific weekend!
