vacation rental description

Panoramic views and memorable ocean sunsets from a 2,600 sq. ft. 3
bedroom 3 ½ bath residence located on Half Moon Bay's Old Course
golf course behind the 16th tee. This getaway is perfect for mature
adults who want a relaxing upscale environment and amenities in a
quiet community setting. Two skylights and surrounding windows
provide natural light in the vaulted ceiling main living area,
situated on the second floor, which gives its one of the best views
in the gated community of Ocean Colony.

Each large uniquely decorated
bedroom has a view of either the fairway or mountains and is appointed
with 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. The
residence is just a 5-minute walk to the famed Ritz Carlton Hotel
and ocean walkway.

As my guest and hopefully future friend, I am committed to make your
stay enjoyable while respecting the quiet enjoyment of my neighbors
and rules that govern the community.

Below are some 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..."

Half Moon Bay Charm & Comfort

Review submitted: May 5, 2011   Date of arrival: April 29, 2011

Jeff's Half Moon Bay House (HMBH) is a truly wonderful place to vacation. Located in a private guarded BEAUTIFUL neighborhood, the HMBH had plentiful convenient parking for our van and large suv. 3 families packed the house with all of our stuff and yet we never felt crowded or in each other's way. The 3.5 bathrooms (one for each bedroom!) helped tremendously with this as did the open, airy living/dining/kitchen area.

The HMBH's bedrooms were all quite large. Each room could easily fit two queen beds or pack-in-plays which makes this house flexible for larger reservations. The dining table, although only seating 8, worked out well for us as our young kids did not require a seat at the table. The kitchen was a treat to use as there were PLENTY of high quality silverware, plates, cups... not your normal hand-me-down that I have commonly found in other vacation rentals.

You can tell the HMBH is well cared for by its CLEAN interior and tasteful, high quality furniture. The nice Asian furniture in the bedrooms were beautiful and different. The leather couches were comfortable and computer in the upstairs bedroom was convenient for quick searches. Having wifi throughout the house was a plus for those with laptops.

I highly recommend the HMBH. Jeff was great to work with promptly replying to my emails within a few hours in most instances, Thank you Jeff for making our stay a great one.

In love with Half Moon Bay

Review submitted: June 5, 2010   Date of arrival: May 21, 2010

Better than we expected! Locaton beautiful , short walk to beach and Ritz Calton. Gorgous view of golf course , well maintained , roomy bedrooms. Quiet neighborhood with lovely landscaping. Safe gated community. Beach drive was 25 minutes to San Francisco and many local attractions. We enjoyed everything about the area and I have already started to recommend the house and area to my friends! Even my sister in law, who travels extensively, was delighted with the accommodations.
