Comments from past guests: 'We just wanted to thank you for the use of your house in Half Moon Bay. We did many things while in the area, Alcatraz, Muir Woods, Wine Country, Fishermans Wharf Etc. But when I asked our family what was their favorite thing, they said 'where we stayed' It really is a nice place, and so peaceful. Everyone had their own space...' R.D.

Each large uniquely decorated bedroom has view of either the fairway or mountains and is appointed with a quality queen-size bed and a full private bathroom. Hardwood floors abound. There is a balcony off the living/dining area and garden patio area off the downstairs bedrooms. A large drive plus a two-car garage provide off street parking.

General Location: Half an hour from San Francisco, San Francisco International Airport (SFO), Stanford and Palo Alto. Half Moon Bay is known for its hiking, biking, surfing, and kayaking, and picturesque downtown area with its local restaurants, shops, music, and theater. This coastal home is in the private gated community of Ocean Colony, and is a five-minute walk to the Ritz Carlton, beach and walking trails. Nearby beaches include Montara, Moss Beach, Half Moon Bay, San Gregorio, and Pescadero. This is also a great jumping off point for day trips to the wine country, and the cities of Santa Cruz and Monterey, Muir Woods, Stinson Beach and Stanford. Nearby is Princeton Harbor, a working harbor where you can buy your fresh/smoked fish, go on a deep-sea fishing trip, or fish/crab from the pier. The protected beaches within the harbor are wonderful for children, and the bluff walks above provide views of the world-famous Mavericks surfing area, elegant cypresses, and pounding waves. A flat paved 14-mile long bicycle trail runs from the Harbor along the beaches past Half Moon Bay and other trails are to be found along the bluffs, and coastal mountains. The seaside town of Half Moon Bay with its galleries and restaurants are a short five minute drive north. Enjoy the culinary talents of chefs at a host of restaurants, like the Navio at the Ritz-Carlton, or the award-winning Cetrella, or Zagat-rated Cafe Gibraltor, or watch the sunset from the Moss Beach Distillery or go to Duarte's in Pescadero and order their delectable artichoke soup. Further south are San Gregorio and Pescadero with their beautiful beaches, bird marshes and Pigeon Point Lighthouse.

    We cannot say enough about this was clean, in a quiet safe area, close to San Francisco, had beautiful walking paths and the town was quaint with unique shops. The beds were very comfortable and it had lots of kitchen and dining room space to enjoy visiting together...Jeff was wonderful to work with and is honest and trustworthy 10 August 2016 - 14:30:09
  2. We stayed in this home for an extended reunion/wedding get away. Very quiet and a beautiful setting. Beds were comfortable and the home very clean and spacious. My family had a very good time just hanging out!! 02 September 2016 - 23:41:00

    We stayed here for a working retreat in September. It was as described, in a lovely corner location in a very quiet location very close to the golf course next to the Ritz (about 5 min walk to the Ritz, less than 10 min walk to the beach via the stairs next to the Ritz). The multilevel rooms with private baths worked well for our group (8 adults and 1 child). The house had great natural lighting and was very comfortable. It has an interesting layout that includes stairs in several locations so may not work for those who have difficulty with those. Jeff is a excellent communicator, very professional and trustworthy, and extremely easy to work with. He is one of the best VRBO owners I have worked with and is a real gem. The only relatively negative aspects were that home is a a bit dated and showing signs of wear (which is expected for most rental homes) and we felt it could have been a bit cleaner (note that we tend to fall on the super clean side of the spectrum). I'd say it's cleaner than most hotels, but perhaps not as clean as some homes. Given that, the place was great overall, and we will likely book with Jeff again. 29 September 2016 - 16:40:21
  4. We had a great time here. Awesome layout of the house meant that we could have meal time in the dining room and a few other people had space in the "game room" to spread out and play a game of Risk or whatever. Really comfortable beds, nice kitchen, loved the grill outside. We walked to the Ritz a few times. Also close drive to great restaurants, including the legendary Sam's Chowder House. 13 March 2017 - 19:05:00

    We had a party of seven for a girls getaway and it was the perfect location. Conveniently located in short walking distance to the Ritz Carlton and a close drive to downtown Half Moon Bay. The house is spacious and ideal for groups or a large family. En suite bathrooms for all three bedrooms is also a plus. Would stay here again. 13 March 2017 - 23:42:00

    We rented 16 Muirfield Rd for a long, multi generational family weekend. Three of us were competing in the Half Moon Bay International Marathon, and others wanted to play golf or just relax near the ocean. The multilevel bedrooms with private baths were perfect for our group. The kitchen was well equipped which was helpful for the grandchildren. The proximity to the Ritz was a big plus also as we enjoyed the fire pits at sunset while listening to the bagpipes. The beds were also very comfortable. 21 September 2016 - 05:37:43

    Great location, well appointed home. Perfect spot for those wishing to stay in Half Moon Bay. Walking distance to Ritz Carlton. Stayed with family members and had Thanksgiving with several relatives that live in the Ocean Colony development. 11 December 2016 - 18:00:35

    This was a great place to stay. It's very clean, quiet, and had enough bed space for 8 of us. We stayed here over a friend's wedding weekend and it was an excellent choice. Jeff was super helpful and quickly answered all my questions. I highly recommend. 09 September 2016 - 03:53:45

    This house is wonderful and very spacious! Each room has its own bathroom and plenty of privacy! The ritz is within walking distance and you can enjoy their fire pits and coastal view over a nice glass of vino! Not to mention a nice sunset surprise ( I won't ruin it). Jeff is very accommodating and the house was very clean with a full kitchen to cook meals at the house. 05 March 2016 - 23:20:44

    We were quite comfortable in your home on 16 Muirfield Rd. The kids said the best part of the trip was being together as a family. The home provides for family gathering at the large table overlooking the golf course. The bedrooms below was well suited for the late night teenagers. The home has a beautiful, warm dcor and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. 19 November 2016 - 00:41:42

    Anyone can see that this home is ideally located - near beach, near grocery store, near Main Street, gated community... but for us the best part was the "hominess" factor. Jeff has decorated his home tastefully and beautifully, yet it doesn't have that rental feeling we have had at many past rentals. I should mention that the beds are comfy, the space fabulous and clean, the kitchen well-stocked, plenty of towels. Call me strange, but a stand-out feature to me was the goodly number of tissue boxes here and there! SO sad to have to always be using TP or running the store for this...another small but significant bit of comfiness. We'll be glad for another opportunity to come again. Thanks so much! 26 March 2016 - 21:34:24

    My friends, my wife and I spent a Lovely stay in the Half Moon Bay beautiful resort enjoying this beautiful well equipped residence. Location is wonderful, highly recommendable. 13 June 2016 - 22:42:01

    This property was the perfect location for a family of 6 (4 adults and 2 children) to stay in Half Moon bay. A nice walk to the beach, access to the coastal trail and a neighborhood playground were perfect for the children. The house was large enough for everyone to "have their own space and privacy" and perfect for games of hide and seek on dark evenings. The house was clean and have everything we needed for cooking and cleaning. The owner is very responsive and quickly answers questions via email. Will definitely stay here again when visiting Half Moon Bay! 24 November 2017 - 20:29:00

    Our stay during Thanksgiving week was relaxing and very comfortable. The house had a great view and it was very spacious. We enjoyed our walks and time at the beach which is close by. We were very pleased with our stay. 07 December 2017 - 16:23:00
  15. Jessica S.
    The house had so much room for my family. The process for checking in and out was very easy too. We were very comfortable and the home is very clean. On top of everything the view is amazing. Will definitely stay here again. 12 December 2017 - 03:53:00

    There were 3 couples and we had driven from Phoenix (over 1500 miles) before we arrived. This was a great place to end our 10 day vacation. We really enjoyed our stay. The only problem was that we were only able to stay for 3 days and 2 nights. The place was lovely and well appointed. The view was amazing. Location was great. There were plenty of restaurants and other shops nearby. The owner was very accommodating and so easy to work with. If we are ever in the San Francisco area again, we will certainly stay here. It was an easy drive to the San Francisco area and also to the San Francisco airport. 19 November 2017 - 11:48:00

    What a great location to stay! The golf courses are amazing, 5 mins walk to coastal trail,. The house is spacious and neighborhood is nice and quiet. JIt's centrally located between San Francisco and San jose (Half an hour from both cities). Jeff was a super host. Check in and check out was a breeze. Definitely recommended. 09 November 2017 - 17:09:00
  18. 1. Jeff, the owner is very responsive and easy to work with. 2. Very nice setting within walking distance to the Ritz and a very nice ocean side costal walk. 3. The 3 bedrooms and beds fit our needs quite well. 4. The kitchen was somewhat lacking in basic utensils and veggie peeler, no blender, only 3 champagne glasses, mismatch of wine glasses, only 1 dishtowel, no bar soap in bathrooms. 5. The property does have a minor very small ant problem. 6. Although the TV setup in the living room is quite nice, the largeness of the room and the all hardwood floor and the very high ceiling makes for poor sound quality and a minor hearing struggle for Medicare age guests. 7. We would stay there again. Great place for group of golf buddies. 03 January 2018 - 18:31:00

    Nice location. Walk to Ritz and beach. 2 miles to downtown. Comfortable bedding. Roomy accommodations for six. Good value. 09 January 2018 - 12:45:00

    Hard to believe Half Moon Bay is only 28 miles from SF, whereas 28 miles from downtown LA you're in the middle of millions of people, at HMB, well I'd say your pressing a few thousand, max. We actually went to lunch at Scoma's at the Fisherman's Wharf, and made the entire trip in less than 3 hours. Jeff's place big, comfortable, security gated, loved the gas fireplace for those cold, misty Northern California nights in January, looks right over the 16th tee box. Bedding ultra comfy. A bigger screen TV would be welcome, as would a new one in the Master, kitchen could use some updating and hand appliances, but reefer was huge and brand new, knives excellent and with a sharpener. Plenty of room for 2 couples, 2 children. Stroll down to the Ritz Carlton in 5 minutes for an unbelievable gorgeous coastline, have a drink at the golf club. Zone out and reduce your blood pressure here, you'll be glad you did. 27 January 2018 - 05:53:00
