Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and friends surprised me with a spectacular birthday gift -- a trip to the Beach House on Moss Beach. What can I say? It was perfection. Thank you to all involved. The house is excellent in every way. The thoughtful touches everywhere made it so special!

Great week at a great house!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved staying at this house. Beautiful home with a phenomenal view of the Pacific.

The homeowners were amazing, communication was quick and they even left instructions throughout the house for operation of various appliances and electronics. Would definitely stay here again. Can't recommend highly enough!

You will need nothing...but to relax!

  • 5 of 5

This home has it all! Charm, comfort and beautiful view and the conviences of home all in one! We enjoyed every minute of our 3 day vacation in this home! We were welcomed with a sweet note, fresh flowers and muffins! What a surprise! Each room was fully equipped with all the luxuries of home, and when traveling with different age groups all wanting something different...this home had it all! I felt as if family was sharing their home with us! I would love to come back again!

Fabulous Location, Amenities- very relaxing for families or couples

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our 2 yr old and 5 yr old sons for a week in July and it was simply perfect. The location is beautiful. We prefer to stay outside San Fran when we visit, and this location made it convenient to take the beautiful drive into the city, as well as to Montara Beach, Half Moon Bay, Pacifica, Pescadero and more. There is a beautiful trail 1 minute up the driveway where you can walk the bluffs with stunning views of the ocean/passing whales too. 10 minutes walking in the other direction is a marine reserve where you can see tide pools and harbor seals right on the beach. Big hit for everyone! The home is full of great amenities, from the coffee provided by the owner, spa-style toiletry items in the bathrooms, beach toys for the kids, well-appointed kitchen and 3 nice sized bedrooms. The views of the ocean from the kitchen and living room were great to wake up to each morning as well! It was an easy home to stay in with small children and would also be great for couples. We even entertained several friends on 2 occasions at the house and it was a piece of cake to prepare meals for everyone. The hot tub and fire pit were perfect at the end of each day, and we really couldn't have asked for a better rental. The owner was very easy to reach any time we needed anything and we would certainly stay here again!

Great Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This VRBO was perfect for our holiday escape. We loved the location with its gorgeous views. It was away from it all but still close to good restaurants and the sights of San Francisco. Be sure and try the 3-Zero Cafe for breakfast and Half Moon Bay Brewing Company for lunch! Don't over pack this place has it all.

Thanks to wonderful hosts Kathy and Jim.
