    Reviews

      Upon arrival, we six ladies were very disappointed in the condition and cleanliness of the property. The owner was very understanding and nice about giving us our money back in full.
      My three sisters, daughter, niece and I spent two nights in Chris' wonderful house. I agree completely with all the good words written so well by previous reviewers, so won't repeat them. Suffice to say that we were extremely happy to have chosen such a perfect place for our first ever ladies' getaway. It was cozy, warm, quiet and lovely. We walked into town, frolicked in the hot tub, felt like royalty eating at the magnificent dining room table, and loved snuggling together on the great round couch in the living room to watch a chick flick. Chris was a charming host. We'd love to stay there again . . . soon.
      Staying in this unique and lovely place for the weekend was a magical experience. I felt like I had fallen through the pages of a story book and was now living in a fairytale house. My favorite parts: 1. The bed in the master bedroom was super comfortable and the sheets were high quality so I slept really well. 2. The fireplace in the master bedroom is beautiful, easy to use, and absolutely delightful. 3. Hanging out in the living room felt like lounging in a genie's bottle. The round bed in the middle is really comfortable, the special lighting makes the ceiling glow, and you can fit quite a few people in there easily. 4. This house might have my favorite hot tub EVER. It's big, there are curvy comfortable places to sit and also very deep areas. 5. The overall architecture of the house reminds me a little bit of Antonio Gaudi's work, which I love. Everywhere I looked, there was a delightful new treasure to discover. Heads up: When you first pull up to the house, there are trees & bushes which create privacy but also make the street view unimpressive. Just start walking to the front door & then you'll see how cute & beautiful this place is. Enjoy your stay! You will love it!
      We were so incredibly lucky to stumble upon this gorgeous property, built by architect Chris Ridgway. The landscaping feels natural but is full of beautiful flowers and unique plants. The hot tub is wonderful, deep and fits quite a few bodies. The house is quaint and cozy, but also was perfect for our entertainment needs. The home boasts 2 fire places, and the living room quite comfortably seats 15 people, with a fun circular bed in the middle that creates a fun atmosphere. There is so much attention to detail and artistic expression in the design. You are never board just staring around each room. Just a short walk from the beach and also downtown, this home is the perfect place for a weekend away with your family or close friends. We enjoyed our stay here very much. Many thanks to the gracious owner.
      Five adults, 2 toddlers spent last week of June here. Beautiful gardens with hummingbirds. Lots of space and fantastic clean, deep hot tub. Close to beach & HMB downtown, so had lots of fun. Owner was a pleasure to deal with!
      We had several fine days in Half Moon Bay, staying at the Ridgway house. There were three generations of us, and the house worked well - good space, good facilities, unusual gardens, close to stores and beach. The remarkable round room was our center, comfortable and full of light. A lovely place.
      Our stay in Half Moon Bay could not have been more enjoyable. My husband and I, along with another couple - it was perfect. Chris was a wonderful host, he made a great suggestions of where to eat and places to see. We enjoyed the fact that house is located within walking distance of town and to the beach. The house is quite comfortable, and we especially enjoyed watching a movie from the circular bed in the middle of the living room. And who could forget the wonderful hot tub in the backyard, surrounded by lovely landscaping, its a great way to start and end a day of adventuring.
      This is a lovely house located right off Main Street in Half Moon Bay. We loved the sunny round room and my kids loved the adjustable round bed! We really enjoyed taking a morning walk into town for coffee. The beach is just a few blocks down, probably more of a short dirive, but a beautiful, walkable section of beach. Horseback riding on the beach is also a great expereince and less than a 10 minute drive. Chiris, the owner, could not be more accomodating and helpful. Has a wealth of information regarding sites to see and resteraunts in the area.
