About this listing
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.

Fishing boat tours and the fishing pier is a 5 min walk, horseback riding rentals a 5 min drive.

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.
On the second story, nestled on the side of the house, this room is creek side and ocean front with windows facing both. You can sit at the desk and watch the tide rise and fall as the seagulls congregate on the sand. It is connected to a bathroom which is light and bright with a claw foot bathtub and heated towel rack.

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.
