About the property

Ready for an incredible getaway? Whether it’s a romantic weekend retreat or a week long family vacation, this 600-square foot studio with remodeled kitchen and bathroom has everything to satisfy your needs. Nestled conveniently between the Montara mountains and Montara State beach, this beach house is a must. Montara is one of those small towns that still holds old charm. You’ll see the locals riding their bikes up the mountain and families walking their dogs together so this little neighborhood may create in you a desire to become a permanent resident! Everything in Montara is within walking or biking distance, so don’t forget your toys when packing for this trip! Don’t worry about where you might find space to put them: the garage downstairs can hold all of your toys, from mountain bikes to an entire quiver of surfboards.

Wake up to the site and sounds of the Pacific ocean roaring in the background. This studio reminds all of its visitors to slow down and enjoy life. Watch the sun rise over the majestic mountains littered with eucalyptus trees, and watch the sunset with a glass of wine and fine Peruvian cuisine at La Costanera. The house is located two blocks from scenic Highway 1, which takes you into beautiful San Francisco in just 20 minutes. Take a longer drive down to Santa Cruz where hiking in the Sequoias or observing the elephant seals at Ano Nuevo makes for a weekend to remember. Don’t forget to grab a cup of coffee at Here Comes the Sun and enjoy evenings of open-mic performances by local artists. Or, check out Montara Cafe & Bakery to enjoy fresh-from-the-oven pastries that will make you wish it was morning all day long. Whether you’re into hiking, mountain biking, or surfing there is no shortage of fun for a couple or for the whole family.

Great staycation!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place within an hour of the city for a local staycation, and this spot was perfect! This spacious, quiet studio was the perfect place to recharge and relax for a few days. We enjoyed walking to Here Comes The Sun and Gherkin's Sandwich Shop for meals or snacks, or just sitting in the room and enjoying the view. It's a short walk to the beach - across the 1 - and you can hear the sound of the ocean in the distance from the studio, especially at night. Andrea and Kristjan were attentive hosts before and during our trip.

This place is all about where it is situated. In a safe quiet little neighbor north of HMB with great mountain views and a short walk to Montara State Beach. The nature trails close by are a bonus. Wireless works great. Clean and has all the amenities so you can stay in or prep for a picnic on the beach. The RV parked in the driveway makes getting in and out a challenge so if you bring a bike or have big luggage, it might be a challenge.

Andrea and Kristjan were very communicative during entire process.
