Beach House Retreat -- Moss Beach

  • 5 of 5
The Beach House in quiet, ultra relaxing but convenient Moss Beach is a gem. The direct ocean location, open sea air hot tub and expansive deck make for an outdoor delight. The house interior provides both comfort and privacy as well a most well appointed kitchen. The fact that such a superlative facility can be located within an easy 30 minute drive from the San Francisco Airport is hard to believe. I most highly recommend a Beach House stay. Our visit there will be long remembered as an outstanding experience; in a perfect setting!

Beachfront Paradise

  • 5 of 5
It was perfect!! I enjoyed everything about my stay. The Beach House felt far away from it all — I saw no other people on the pretty beach during my entire stay. But all conveniences were near at hand. I couldn’t ask for much more – the extremely comfortable bed, the well-equipped kitchen, the great hot tub and the OCEAN. The gorgeous walk north along the coast and the southern tide pools at low tide were appreciated extras. I very highly recommend this vacation house. Thank you Jim and Kathy.

Relaxing, peaceful and beautiful...

  • 5 of 5
This was the first time in four years we were able to get away together. Our decision to get away was last minute but since we were mourning the recent loss of our dog in combination of trying to celebrate Tony's birthday, we really needed to escape and decompress.
So I went on and sought out a beach house in the Half Moon Bay area. I saw this listing and called crossing my fingers it was going to be available.
Right from the beginning, my experience with Jim was pleasant. He returned my telephone call right away. He was friendly and very accommodating with our last minute decision to get out of town.
Jim and Kathy are very hospitable - friendly, accommodating, organized, resourceful...I could go on and on. And then, there's their beautiful beach house. So peaceful and lovely. Beautiful views of the beach (plus you can access the beach), well maintained hot tub, incredible kitchen, comfortable beds and bedding (I love their sheets), sunken bath tubs...I mean, you bring your food and beverages and you never have to leave once you get there (and believe me, you won't want to leave, I know we never do)!
We have made a tradition to stay here at least once a year (and more if we can). Tony and I highly recommend this unbelievable property. You won't be disappointed.
