Country House in Park Like Setting-Minutes from San Francisco
Our lovely home is located on a private, beautiful park like acre of land, less than a mile from the beach. It's three levels offer space to be together and space for privacy too. Plenty of room for great family and friend's meals. You can start …
My organization had our annual retreat at this home this year. It was a comfortable and inspiring place for us to do our work. The owner personally greeted us and came back to the house herself to address the one minor issue we had during our stay. I highly recommend this vacation home.
Stayed Christmas. We wanted a house close to the city, big enough for 5 adults,1 Teenager, 2 kids and 2 infants (one kid and both infants were in portable cribs) that had a good amount of outdoor space for the kids to run around and enough indoor space for the adults to be comfy. That is exactly what we got. The house was perfect, has a basketball court, great TV room, tons of outdoor space, 30 minutes from the airport and from the city. Great Kitchen to cook in. We rocked out Prime Rib, Lasagna, Carne Asada Tacos and many more meals!! No felt crowded, plenty of bathrooms for everyone. The owner met us there and was super friendly and accommodating. The master bedroom is up a steep flight of stairs, so maybe don't put grandma in that room. It was great to be able to have the whole family together at the holidays. Thank you Susie for renting us your lovely home!
I brought my family here to have a nice weekend together. We found everything we needed. The kitchen, study and all of the bedrooms had everything we needed. I we ended up coming with almost as many cars as people and there was plenty of space for us to park. Would love to come back in the summer :) Sleeps exactly 8.
We had a family gathering here recently and it was simply magnificent. This is the first rental I've ever seen where the pictures don't do it justice. The house and yard are far more beautiful than the pictures! The kitchen had everything you could possibly imagine. The bedrooms were also quite comfortable. The yard was perfect for kids. We barely left the house all weekend. Neighborhood is quite nice as well (walking trails nearby). The coast is only a few minutes away, and the slightly-inland nature of this property kept it a little warmer and more protected. Perfect combination. We hope to come back next year!
I was not familiar with the area when I booked this rental and it turned out to be a little more remote than I expected. It is a ways north of central Half Moon Bay, which puts you in striking distance to downtown San Francisco. This was not a con for me, but might be for others. I actually enjoyed feeling apart from the city, which made going into the city and the crowds more enjoyable. This home has a cabin type feel and is surrounded by huge cypress trees. The home is a little older but has been renovated and is well kept up. The only thing I didn't love were the pillows, but I am unbelievably selective in that department. My wife didn't seem to mind them. Everything worked great and the owner was very low maintenance. I would definitely recommend it to others.
My friends and I loved the house. It felt like we were far away from the city, but was only minutes away. Great place to stay.
Our family departs today after four fun filled days in your lovely home. Our 5 & 7 year old grandchildren were completely charmed by the house, loving the high ceilings, the "cat" walk, the kitchen on the second floor. We had daily "nature walks" outside. Our granddaughter loved the blue passion flower vines.
We had fierce Frisbee competitions and lots of swinging. Even built an outdoor "play" kitchen out of bricks.
In the area we enjoyed the beach, had a great morning of fishing at Princeton Pier, a wonderful dinner at Sam's Chowder House, pony rides and a visit to the carnivorous plant store - we sell them at our nursery back in Virginia.
We had cookouts on the grill and a final meal with Olallieberry Pie from Half Moon Bay Farmer's Market. Your home was a great spot to create memories with our 2 California sons and their children. Thank You!
PS That master bedroom was so comfortable we loved waking up in a cloud every morning.
Dear Susie - Thank you for giving us a "Home" for our family to enjoy together. It was the most amazing, serene and wonderfully magical place. As I write this now, I am watching my children running around the big tree, walking along the creek and swinging as high as the bright blue sky allows them to fly. My family celebrated my Dad's birthday here this weekend, coming in from 3 different cities. I will never forget how happy my parents felt all weekend and even a few tears as my father gave a small birthday speech. Thank you so much for giving us a place for these memories. I can see this home has always been filled with love.
Dear Jeff and Susie,
Thank you for your beautiful "cabin" where we celebrated my birthday. We seared Tuna on the grill, played basketball and thoroughly enjoyed the swings. We organized our own wine tasting among friends on the deck, walked beneath the canopy of trees and watched a hawk resting in the branches. We also went for trail ride with Moss Beach Ranch - it was the first time on horseback for some! We also enjoyed nearby restaurants La Costanera and Moss Beach Distillery, and of course the beautiful beach itself. And the final perfect touch: LEGO's for the kids! Thank you!
We did so many fun things but what stands out is tonight my oldest son had to leave early. Before he left, all three kids went outside and played in the yard. Pushing each other on the swings & ropes, playing ball and Frisbee. I looked out the window to see and it was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. Your house really is magical. Thank you Susie!
Your home is a wonderful place, cozy and at the same time luxurious. You have managed to anticipate all needs and so many wants. The level of amenities surpasses comfort, to touch extraordinary. We enjoyed our stay immensely and frequently expressed our gratitude to you and your husband for putting your home at our disposal. Warm regards.
Jeff and Susie,
We absolutely loved the place! Loved the basketball, swings, piano, and trumpet! (I loved it, my family just begged me to stop!) We have had a great time, but way too short. All the kids are begging to stay longer. We are heading off for the rest of our California trip, well rested and raring for more!
Our family really enjoyed the stay at your home. The house was beautiful and very spacious. A lot of good memories were created there. My daughter absolutely loved the swings and big open land. The property is also conveniently located near the beach.
We stayed in your beautiful home while attending a relative's wedding. We had a great time, made greater by having such a wonderful place to stay. We enjoyed the grounds. We came away with tons of photos of family with your house as a background.
Thank you so much for the use of your beautiful home! The kids and even the "bigger" kids really enjoyed the swings! It is so beautiful and peaceful here that it was the perfect backdrop for our weekend stay. Thank you again.
Thank you so much for letting us use your beautiful home. It was perfect for our family and it was wonderful to have 3 generations under one roof. We loved the rope swing and beautiful yard! Thanks!
Thank you for the stay in your beautiful, comfortable home. We enjoyed a weekend with our friends from high school and college. What a great spot for our weekend away!
I came here with my family - three generations ranging from 1 to 67 year old. We all had such a wonderful time. The house is beautiful and we all felt peaceful, relaxed and happy to be in it. The kitchen was great for cooking shared meals and the dining table was perfect --well lit, spacious and with eight seats. All the bedrooms were great but the master suite upstairs is really magnificent. But more than anything, we fell in love with the grounds - there are swings, a basketball court, great courtyards, rolling hills and sprawling trees. Everyone from the little kids to the grandparents didn't want to leave!
The house suited our needs perfectly, was in good shape, and the grounds were even nicer than the description makes them sound. The owners responded quickly to emails and the property manager was very courteous and accomodating. Some aspects of the house were a bit tricky to use, but instructions were provided and easy to follow. The three levels, with the living room/dining room/kitchen all on the middle level gave us nice separation, while still providing us a convenient gathering area for us all to congregate. It may be worth noting that two of the three bathrooms are accessible only through bedrooms, so guests in the second bedroom on the middle level have to go downstairs to use the unattached bathroom, but this didn't cause us any trouble at all.
What a delight! We had a multi-day offsite meeting here and it was perfect. Plenty of room and a beautiful setting. WIsh we could have stayed longer.
Beautiful grounds! More than adequate supplies. Furnishings were eclectic, artful and quite interesting. House and property were clean except that the floors were filthy. I accidentally spilled some tea on the hardwood and when I wiped it up the paper towel was black. Same with the slate in the kitchen. Wireless router was not working upon arrival but they were able to get someone out within a couple of hours to fix it. ATT cell phone signal quite poor the entire time. Hardly any room in the kitchen to store our own dry goods as the pantry was full of dishes and other stuff, as were all the cabinets. Also, could not find a garbage can on the property. Nevertheless, we had a wonderful time and the house served our purpose well. Thank you.
Our stay was incredible. The house is perfect. The outside grounds is absolutely beautiful. We happened to be there on a rather incredibly warm weekend which made the stay even better. I highly recommend this vacation home for a family getaway. I know I will be renting it again.
The house is even more beautiful than the pictures. It has a nice "home" feel to it, but in a very classy way. It was clean. well-maintained, and exactly as described. The owner was very pleasant to work with - the whole process couldn't have been easier. Great weekend.
The pictures on the site doesn't do the property justice. The pictures already made us love the property, but to see it all in person was even better. The house and the surrounding area is beautiful. It felt like we were at a park with all the open space and the trees. The kids loved the tree swings. We enjoyed the house and would love to come back for another stay. Susie was a great host. I'd highly recommend this property!
Our three night family get together in this beautiful home could not have been better. The listing description is very accurate. The kitchen is way beyond well supplied with cooking needs and the entire house is well maintained and supplied with essentials. The grandchildren loved the "Magic Garden" yard and created stories, hide and seek activities, and a beautiful pixie house. We were well introduced to the house and supplies. The owner was easy to work with and answered all of our questions and needs. An excellent home to enjoy, near the coast and Bay area. There are also hiking trails within walking distance of the house. We highly recommend this home and we would love to come again.
