My husband and I stayed at this lovely home for our 40th anniversary and loved it! The owners have obviously put a lot of thought and expense into creating a beautiful oasis with wonderful views of the Pacific Ocean. It was perfect for our "ocean fix", needed periodically now that we've moved to Sonoma. I can't think of a thing that you would need for your stay that is not provided by the owners. I did have trouble with the WiFi, however. We kept getting a "good" signal but never could get connected. Not a big deal for us, but could be for someone. Also, we had to step out on to the front deck to get Verizon service on our cell phones. None of this really bothered us, though, since the weekend was all about relaxing, looking at the water and enjoying time together in a beautiful home.
It was simply wonderful! Can't recommend it highly enough. Comfy beds. Fully equipped kitchen. Staggering views. A hop skip and a jump away from fabby do Peruvian restaurant, beautiful beach and local shops. Very easy drive to San Francisco, Berkley, Palo Alto and slightly longer to Santa Cruz and Monteray. Would we recommend it? Absolutely! The location is quite magical.
Very spacious for entertaining and open with beautiful views of ocean from the living room and family room. It had a great view even when it is somewhat foggy.
Walk to beach is not far but across highway with an uphill walking back.
Excellent for cleanliness, comfortable beds. Spacious for others w air beds.
Spacious for two couples or 4 ladies weekend with king size beds.
Internet access an issue as it is limited to back bedroom.
Close to Half Moon Bay and far enough away for relaxation.
Extremely happy with the accommodations for a great weekend away.
We really did have a great stay. Your house was very comfortable, and we played games,did a puzzle, played cards in your front room, enjoying the view, and in general had a wonderful and relaxing mini vacation.
A couple of things -FYI- the flashlight needs a new battery, and we could have used an outdoor grill or BBQ.
We had a very nice lunch at MezzaLuna and Sunday brunch at The Ritz. Yum!
We had intermittent wifi, almost no service on our Verizon phones, but much better coverage on an AT&T phone. Go figure.
A very nice girls weekend, indeed.
Views were excellent; house was huge for 3 people---living areas were spacious and well furnished. But you can't drag yourself away from the windows. Beds super comfortable and everything was extremely clean.
This single level home was particularly great for us as we spent some away time with my elderly parents and virtually everything we could have wanted was available. On top of that the owners went out of their way to make sure we had what we needed and then some. Highly recommend this place.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Montara Bluff House, amazing unobstructed views of the Ocean, Beach, Sunset, Mountains, & Marin Headlands, all while sipping wine in front of the fire! Was a terrific, relaxing, and romantic getaway. Super clean, with high end appliances and finishes, fully stocked, offered all the comforts of home. Private, peaceful location, with plenty of easy parking. Short drive to excellent restaurants, fresh seafood and fun shopping on Main St. Lovely owners, everything was just as represented on the site....but better. Wish we could move in!
What a pleasant surprise to visit Montara, and feel like we were on a tropical vacation! This well appointed home is comfortable and clean, with breathtaking views, colorfully decorated with awesome bedding, great location, close to SF and Peninsula. Didn't make it to the beach, the view from the house was enough for us. Will be referring my friends, can't wait to come back.
the next time we dare to take some time for R & R, this spectacular secret will be out, and perhaps too booked for US to relax there!?!?! Was it Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz who professed, “There’s NO place like home, there’s NO place like home.” Dorothy must not have had the chance to enjoy Kathy and Michael’s Montara Bluff House. Although Toto most likely won’t be invited (the sound of the waves would scare him anyway!) you, will be treated like family and be lavished in every comfort of home. Imagine perfect serenity with vast views of nature’s paradise where mountains join the sea, each day rolling into the next with no care of time, reason or technology. The furnishings are classy and thoughtful offering pristine breathtaking allures of a dreamy respite. Wake each morning to peaceful serenity. The scenery is amazing to relax by or be as active as you’d like! The town is cozy, full of wonderful restaurants and shopping centers (if your prefer to dine in home). The kitchen is well appointed, and the property is very well maintained, and immaculate. I would definitely recommend this property to the most discriminating traveler. The photos truly do not do it justice. One of our favorite get away spots by far and only a short 30 minute drive from San Francisco.We look forward to returning, and to visiting Kathy and Michael's other properties! Excellent overall experience! Thank you for sharing your piece of West Coast "Heaven" with us!
We recently enjoyed a wonderful vacation with our adult children @ Bluff House. the views are stunning - even better than the photos. We appreciated all the surrounding beauty, enjoyed many hikes, and relaxed playing cards by the fireplace. The ams &pms are chilly, so be sure to pack sweatshirts! the house is spacious & inviting. San Fran is about 30 mins away. a little more pricey than some other houses but well worth it to us. Perfect!
It was through VRBO that I found this home. A girlfriend & I, went to relax and boy did we! The home is a very beautifully decorated home, with lots of great window's to look out at the ocean, surfer's & hopefully to see whales. The dinning table in the front room is such a great place to sit and have morning coffee & breakfast, as well as having a great cocktail hour by. The home has everything you may need to have that special weekend away. The two bedrooms are so pretty & the two bathrooms have everything one might need including a hair dryer. If your eating in all three meals then of course you need to go 7 miles to Safeway for all your supplies, but that is a short drive down & back. Yes we did it!
Thank you Michael & Kathy for greeting us and thank you Michael for bringing in our things from our car and placing them in the bedrooms we chose. Thank you Kathy for printing out all the restaraunts to go to for dinner or whatever. Yes I would rent this home again for a relaxing getaway and should you need to go to the beach it is just a very short drive. This home is more for the adults to enjoy, but they don't discourage families with children. Check it out you will love it!
