Our house is right on the waters edge. Located on a protected harbor where from the deck or front patio you see birds soaring and bathing and fishing along with seals swimming right in front of you. Kayakers and small sailboats sailing from the HMB yacht club. Fishing boats going out to sea, a small fishing pier, the wide open ocean, the fresh ocean air, and the rise and fall of the tide. We are on the coastal trail, great for biking and walking.
A 10 min walk to a surfing beach either beginning to intermediate. A 10 min walk to the famed Mavericks, which depending on conditions varies from intermediate to expert-crazy surfing. Old growth Redwood forest hikes are a 30 minute drive. Kayak/wetsuit rentals a 5 min walk, surfboard/boogie board/wetsuit rental a 5 min drive. Fishing boat tours and the fishing pier is a 5 min walk, horseback riding rentals a 5 min drive.

We were loved so much by Harriet and Mike, that nearly stayed for ever! :)
The place was beautiful, comfortable, clean and sunny. With Mikes instruments we could have a little singalong by the fire on the patio. The house is by the most spectacular settings of beaches. In the neighborhood there are plenty of restaurants with delicious menus. And the possibility of lots of outdoor activities like hiking, biking, sailing, kayaking, surfing, etc.
We recommend they place for everyone! :)
Great welcome and orientation to the place and area. Bright clean room. Friendly atmosphere and quiet night.
Had a great time here! I was in HMB for a friend's wedding and instead of staying in a boring hotel, for the same price my girlfriend and I were able to have a coastal view, as well as fantastic service.
We ended up in HMB earlier than expected, but They let us check in an hour earlier, which was just so nice.
Great people, great hosts, great location!
Mike and Harriet are generous, kind, and a very welcoming couple who genuinely care about their guests. Their home is perfectly situated on the water where you will enjoy a beautiful view, the smell, and sound of the sea. The house is walking distance to several excellent restaurants, a marina, and multiple hiking trails. I cannot wait to return to their beautiful home, and to see them again. I felt as though I made friends during my stay. This is a great place to stay for solitude, romantic get away, or perhaps to do some writing.
This place was wonderful, and Harriet and Mike were so much fun and very kind. The location is lovely- the view from the garden is spectacular, and it was easy to walk to bars/restaurants in the near area. The room was bright and sunny! Mike & Harriet were extremely accommodating, and we'd recommend this place to anybody. Half Moon Bay would not have been anywhere as great as it was without Mike's warm and friendly nature! He's a rock-star ;) - Natasha & Tenzing
Harriet & Mike were wonderful hosts. The Seahouse is gorgeous & the location is excellent. Can't wait to return!!
H and M were wonderfully welcoming, and made me feel at home in their home right away. The location right on the Half Moon Bay harbor and little beach by a creek is fabulous, and the room beautiful in its simplicity and yet comfort. I couldn't have had a more wonderful visit and feel very lucky to have had these hosts. I hope to return to the Seahouse in the future. It was truly a memorable visit.

We are coast loving people. We, Harriet and Mike have lived on the coast for about twenty years and have five grown daughters, three of which we raised in this house. Mike is a kayak instructor and certified alchemical hypnotherapist, while Harriet is a health practitioner. For fun.....We walk on the beach every day and we love the weather, be it sunny or foggy. We love the ocean and regularly get in it, either on a kayak or a boogie board. The new water sport Harriet is excited to try is stand-up paddle boarding. When we go on vacation, we take more road trips than flights and tend to stay on the coast. Mike plays bass guitar and we both like flamenco music. We have a little dog (don't tell him he's little), who is part jack russel and blue heeler. He is older now and much more quiet. Lately we have been enjoying the Pie Ranch Barn Dance. Its a little rowdy, a lot of fun and anyone can go.We are very friendly and we welcome you to utilize our wealth of information of the area. We also appreciate the retreat and solitude that this natural setting can offer.
