The space

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.

There are several fine restaurants within 10 min walking distance and more within 10 min driving. Music at two locations within walking distance and more with 10 min driving. Fitzgerald Marine Preserve is 2 miles away.

In this house you will find a setting which offers both a cozy place to settle in as well as a very centrally located base camp for your adventures of the coast and the bay area. We are a 30 min drive to San Francisco, 45 min drive to Silicon Valley, 55 min drive to Santa Cruz.

This room has a bed nook with a queen size bed and a desk with a view of the ocean. This room has a light and bright bathroom with a claw foot bathtub and towel warmer.

My daughter stayed in this room. She loved the bed nook. There was an outlet where she could plug in her phone. Very comfy bed. She slept with the window open and could hear the ocean

H+M's place was a perfect place to stay for our 2 day getaway. We are so thankful for Harriet & Mike 's warm & welcoming spirit...and allowing us to stay in their home. The room & private bath were great. Bright and airy with a great view. We are definetly looking forward to coming again!

The bedroom that we rented at Michael and Harriet's home in Half Moon Bay was just what we were looking for. Out of the hustle and bustle of San Francisco in a tranquil location on the harbor --- and still a quick drive to the San Francisco airport in the morning for our flight. After a week in Napa/Sonoma and San Francisco we spent the final two nights of our trip in Half Moon Bay -- and drove down to Big Sur, taking in the coastal views. The home had a fantastic view -- sitting right on the bay, our bed was comfy, room was clean (and had a great view of the boats from the desk!), the bathroom was clean -- we couldn't have asked for more. Our hosts were pleasant and welcoming and all went off without a hitch! While the kitchen and living areas were available to us, we pretty much just came in at bedtime and took off in the mornings, so we didn't really use the home as a place to hang out -- but we were welcomed to do so if we had wanted to.

Mike and Harriet made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. They gave us a quick tour of the house, and made sure we had everything we needed. Mike even offered to make a fire in the fire pit that evening, but unfortunately we had to be in bed early so we couldn't take advantage of it. The location of their home was very convenient to several restaurants and the harbor, and the beach was literally in their front yard. The next time I'm in Half Moon Bay, I will definitely plan on staying with Mike and Harriet again.

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.
