Historic Home w/ Large Yard + Fire Pit by the Beach!


Property Details

Updated: Dec 16, 2014
House, 6 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 15 Sleeps

Located in Moss Beach, only 20 miles South from San Francisco, 6 miles North of Half Moon Bay, and 50 Miles North of Santa Cruz.

* Private Cottage On Property Also For Rent, Sleeps 3*

This recently remodeled 5 bedroom (plus bonus bedroom), 3 bath coastal home was once part of a prohibition-era train station built in the late 1800's. Located in tranquil Moss Beach, six miles north of Half Moon Bay on coastal Highway 1. Half Moon Bay is home to the yearly Art and Pumpkin Festival. The house is only a block from the internationally recognized tide pools and beach at the James Fitzgerald protected Marine Reserve. It is a wonderful place to enjoy, walk, take the kids to learn about the tide pools, etc. It is in a beautiful and quiet neighborhood, with plenty of nearby restaurants and shopping. Also nearby is the famous big wave surf area, Mavericks, off Pillar Point Harbor, just north of Half Moon Bay at the village of Princeton-By-The-Sea.

Each of the six bedrooms contains one bed consisting of three queen beds, two fulls, and one twin as follows:

One private queen bedroom and bath suite on the first floor. Upstairs you'll find the spacious master bedroom which contains a gorgeous 160-year-old hand carved bed, with an adjacent enclosed room containing an additional twin bed which can be used as a private sixth bedroom. This "bonus" room gets great sunlight. Also upstairs are three more spacious bedrooms. Altogether, you have 5 bedrooms and an extra twin in the "bonus" bedroom off the master bedroom upstairs.

Two full baths, one with claw foot tub and separate marble and travertine shower and a third vintage inspired bath with shower only. Rooms are spacious, and beds are comfortable. Ample room for dining, with separate common rooms for relaxing and socializing. You will love it.

For those who enjoy hiking, nearby Montara Mountain is a popular outdoor recreation spot. The coastside also hosts several state parks and beaches, including: Half Moon Bay State Beach, Venice State Beach, Poplar State Beach, San Gregorio State Beach, and Pomponio State Beach.

Please Note: Though individuals under 18 are welcome at the property, we require that the person making the reservation be at least 25+ years old and accompany any minor guests.

Additional charge for events and/or parties of 13 or more may apply.

* Separate Cottage On Property Also Available, Sleeps 3 *

Guestbook comments from the owner

I rented this house for me and six friends for my birthday weekend. It was perfect for our needs and better than I expected in terms of sleeping accommodations. The linens are great, beds are super comfy. The house was very clean, quiet and cozy. We spent lots of time in the "piano room" socializing in front of the fire, and we enjoyed that we could all easily fit around the dining room table so we could eat together. Lots of great conversation and bonding, and we loved the easy walk to the shore. We had a wonderful time and staying in your house made all the difference. We would definitely come and and highly recommend your home! Thank you!

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5
Thirteen of us, representing three generations, enjoyed a magical four days at Millie's charming house. The minute we stepped inside, it felt like home, and we happily made it our home and home-base. It's beautiful with historical charm, fully furnished and decorated. It is not just charming; the beds and pillows are as comfortable as I ever slept in, there were more than enough towels and linens, and the kitchen was very well stocked with cookware and plates. The teen cousins were more than happy with their cottage, which was also fully equipped. We spent our time taking the ten minute walk to the tide pools; some of us took the short trip into Half Moon Bay, but our planned SF trip didn't happen. Sitting on the front patio and around the fire pit was too hard to top; any side trips were unnecessary. Millie has created a vacation rental that is much more than that. It feels like home.

Perfect Getaway Spot for a Group!

  • 5 of 5
Our second trip down to stay at this great property. We are a group of 8 coming down for Golf at The Half Moon Bay courses and this property has been ideal. BBQ the first night and hanging out on patio.. plenty of sitting rooms and bedrooms and a kitchen with 8-10 person table for dinners and cards. Very quiet and comfortable. No Internet access, so plan accordingly. Our group will definitely be back and thank you again Mililianne for being so accommodating, a pleasure putting the weekend together with you!

Owner's Response: Thank you Patrick, We loved having you as a return guest to our beach house. You are delightful, and we are so glad that we could accommodate you once again. I wish I'd known that you were unable to access our internet service, as that is always a top priority to us and our guests. We do provide internet service, but were apparently experiencing difficulty on the weekend of your stay.
Thank you for your candid review and we hope you and your friends will continue to return to our beach house for a few rounds of golf and to continue making wonderful memories every year. Gratefully, Millieanne

Fabulous house for a group

  • 5 of 5
We had a college reunion here over the new year, and couldn't have been more pleased with the house! It had ample space for a large group of us to hang out, cook meals, & a nice stash of board games in the living room that we took advantage of. The weather was great so we were able to bbq and use the fire pit as well. The furniture was older but in good condition, and added to the "old California" beach vibe of the house. A quick walk to the bluffs/beach, and walking trails nearby as well which were really nice. Overall a wonderful trip, and we can't wait to come back!

Fabulous Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5
My family rented the house and cottage for our father's 90th birthday celebration and we had the best weekend! The accommodations were ideal for our 3-generation family of 9 - plenty of beds, bathrooms, and living space. The kitchen and outdoor gas grill were outfitted with everything we needed. The Moss Beach location and sunny weather were perfect for our walks to the marine reserve and the scenic viewpoint at the end of the street (beautiful sunsets). Our family gathering was enriched by staying at Millie's home - we'll always have special memories of our beach walks, cooking, eating, laughing, and just being together in a charming home and lovely surroundings.

The owner, Millie, was so nice to deal with. We had a great initial phone conversation and in person she was even more welcoming and friendly. She was considerate and attentive to our needs and concerns, which made our stay that much more enjoyable.

Teachers at the Beach

  • 5 of 5
What a great get-away for a bunch of preschool teachers... who really DO "need" a get-away! :) Loved the house! So perfect for 8 women as we took some time to learn more about our role as teachers... moms, wives, sisters, daughters... and friends!! Your house was the perfect location and so quiet and quaint!! The large dining room table was ideal for a great dinner and all the bedrooms, so decorated with your personal touches, gave us plenty of "alone" space, too!! We played games in the Comfy Family Room with the cozy gas fireplace and enjoyed our morning training/devotion there, too!! The Tide Pools were a big hit and soooo very close!! If our "retreat plans" bring us back to Half Moon Bay next fall, we will return to Millie's Hide-away!

Large, Historic, Half Moon Bay Vacation Home By the Beach Review

  • 4 of 5
The home was as described, large, roomy spaces for people to sleep and gather indoors and out. We were in walking distance to the beach which we did everyday to enjoy the spectacular tide pools at Fitzhugh Marine Reserve. The kitchen, dining room, sunroom portion of the house was exceptional in space and equipment. With six adults and two children the flow of the house worked very well. One evening we had a lovely barbecue in the spacious outdoor area. However, my son discovered when he went to start the propane barbecue that it was rusted and in disrepair with some jets not working. The barbecue should be replaced. The bedrooms were beautifully decorated but three of the mattresses were very soft and saggy, especially in the master bedroom and left those who slept on them, sleep deprived. The upstairs mattresses should be replaced immediately. Other than the deficient barbecue and mattresses, it was the perfect place for our family to reunite to celebrate two birthdays and attend a wedding further down the coast.

Owner's Response: Thank you Helane, for your lovely review about our home. I'm so glad that you had such a wonderful stay, that you thought to write your comments on line. I wanted you to know that we replaced the BBQ with a brand new one. It's almost impossible to keep things from rusting quickly when you live so close to the sea! The BBQ looked fine, but the metal under the stainless grates were of a thin type which was badly rusting. Thank you so much for letting us know.

Also, you mentioned that some of the mattresses were a little too soft for you. I'm sorry that was the case. We have actually replaced all 6 mattresses in the main house and 2 in the cottage. All the beds have memory foam toppers, which can be a little to cushy for some people, I suppose, but truly, we have never had a complaint from any one. We want all our guests to have a wonderful experience,
that their families will remember for a life time. We get many return
guests, so we know "we must be doing something right" and we are always trying to improve. Input from wonderful guests like yourself,
is such valuable information, and it can only help us to make things
Thank you again Helane! Kindly, Millieanne
