Why Linda & Charles Jordan chose Moss Beach

Lived in Los Altos CA for 20 years where we raised our kids and decided to relocate on the Coast for a change of pace after our they grew up. We have never been sorry for that move! The house needed upgrading and the garden was a disaster, but we made it a comfortable and attractive home, or so our family and friends all tell us!

What makes this house unique

Close to our family and friends, beautiful coastal scenery and the availability of walks along the seashore, easy drive to San Francisco and other places in the Bay Area. SF Airport nearby, also several nationally ranked sports teams, opera and symphony and art museums in San Francisco, and outstanding universities such as Stanford and UC Berkeley. Silicon Valley, Wine Country, the Sierras, and several National and State Parks are nearby.

Relaxing and Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The home was very clean and quiet. My family felt comfortable there.

It was the perfect location for me and my family to travel to many locations both in and outside of San Francisco. The beaches nearby were beautiful.

Our stay at the Moss Beach House

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at the Moss Beach house from 9-23 to 9-30 was great. The house was very comfortable, and had beautiful view of the Pacific. The location was also perfect for visits to Half Moon Bay and San Francisco. Would Stay again.

Great views of the Pacific. Highly recommend!

  • 4 of 5

Plenty of room with 2 baths and 3 bedrooms, plenty of living space to relax, the gas fireplace is a great feature, and the views are amazing of the Pacific. The outside Franklin stove for a fire was a nice feature also.

Wonderful, restful vacation overlooking the Pacific

  • 5 of 5

While visiting family in the area, we had a wonderful stay in this beautiful home overlooking the sea. The house was extremely lovely, clean and comfortable and we were in a terrific location for site-seeing both in and out of SF. Linda and Charles were great hosts. We hope to visit again soon!

The house is located in Moss Beach in a quiet neighborhood two blocks uphill from Highway 1, which follows the Pacific coastline. There are a nice small grocery & liquor store, a post office, a wine bar, three restaurants, a light house, a fire station, a Sheriff's office, and an emergency hospital, all in the small village of Moss Beach.

Nearby are beautiful hills, bluffs, beaches, and tidepools within walking distance, and also kayaking, surfing, golf at Ocean Shores golf courses, ocean fishing or whale watching from the Pillar Point Harbor where you can buy Dungeness crabs and fish off the boat, or eat fresh fish or a variety of international foods at some of the best restaurants in the Bay Area, attend the famous October Pumpkin and Art Festival, and visit a variety of shops in nearby in Half Moon Bay. There is even a nearby airport for small planes and a wonderful restaurant for breakfast or brunch.

There are big hills surrounding the SF Bay Area and good hiking trails on the Montara mountain trailhead 3 minutes away, horse riding, bicycle riding, and walking on Coastal Trail, tidepools to visit at Fitzgerald Marine Reserve only a 5-minute walk away (contains marine life typical of the coast and is visited by school classes and people from all over the world), and just above the Reserve is a unique cedar forest, site for a couple of movies, overlooking a large group of seals sunning on one of the most beautiful white sand beaches in the world. The small village of Moss Beach has a quiet location near farms of flowers and vegetables, with local produce stands scattered about. The entire area is scenic and attracts many artists to paint the views.

The drive to downtown San Francisco takes 25-30 minutes, 30 minutes to SF Airport or Peninsula cities and trains. And if you want to see California attractions a bit farther away from the coast, the drive by car is 1-1/2 hours to the Napa/Sonoma Wine Country or the Monterey / Carmel Peninsula, and the Sierra Nevada mountains, Yosemite National Park, and the Gold Rush Country are a 3-4 hour drive from our coast.
