vacation rental description

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.

Family Reunion

Review submitted: August 16, 2014   Date of arrival: June 11, 2014

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!

Review submitted: June 3, 2014   Date of arrival: May 30, 2014

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!

Owners 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

Review submitted: March 13, 2014   Date of arrival: December 31, 2013

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!
