"Nothing less than five stars is accurate for this property. We loved our stay and everything was just as we had hoped. Not one disappointment. The photos are all 100% accurate (that view!) and we already felt at home the minute we walked in the door. The location of the house is wonderful, on a quiet dead end street, with spectacular views of sunsets, beach, and mountains from panoramic windows all over the house. What more could anyone want? We were treated to awesome whale crossings and breaching right from the living room window. That was a first for us! We were thirty minutes from the airport, but felt a world away. This is an easy escape from SF or from out of town. The spacious house is appointed beautifully and was very comfortable and homey. Clearly the house has had many recent updates and felt new in many ways. Spotless as well. The beds and linens are luxurious. Both bedrooms are on opposite sides of the house, with their own baths, so it really is a perfect couples getaway. The open kitchen was a delight to work in and was very well stocked with pots, pans, gadgets, casual and fine china, cookbooks, everything you would need. Kathy, the owner, kept in touch with us during our stay to ask how everything was going and to alert us to the whale activity. She was a nice as she could be and we were honored to be enjoying her lovely home. She has anticipated almost everything anyone could want from sunscreen to binoculars to a wine tote for the beach. Flowers were blooming all around the front and back deck area. We found the house very quiet and the neighbors were delightful. We enjoyed many strolls through the neighborhood (saw hawks and owls), over to the McNee Ranch trails, down to a dinner at La Costanera, and down to gorgeous Montara Beach. And for the tech amenities...the high speed internet was great and DirectTV plus a blu-ray/DVD player was nice for snuggling up with a good show in front of a fire. This house is simply divine in all ways. We enjoyed pretending it was ours and we can't wait to return."
