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.

Our seahouse visit at Mike and Harriet's was excellent. The place was roomy and comfortable and in a great location right on the bay and walking distance to most of what Half Moon Bay has to offer. It was truly a pleasure.
My husband & I stayed in this room. If you aren't renting all the rooms, I think this one is the best. Has the outside deck and an amazing bathroom with a Japanese tub. Too bad there is a drought and I couldn't in good conscience use the tub.
We had a wonderful time! We'll definitely come back! They had a beach right out the back and a fire pit too!
Harriet and Mike were a sweet couple and very helpful too. The room was gorgeous. We couldn't have picked a better spot! It's right on the water!
My husband and I had a wonderful 3-night stay in room 1. The room and bathroom were as pictured -- very spacious and filled with natural light. The French doors that opened out to the private deck and cove below were never closed -- we enjoyed the wonderful ocean air and the sound of the surf. I have never slept so deeply and happily as I did here. The only disappointment is that the room is booked -- we would have loved to come back this summer and stay again.
I've been coming here for about 2 1/2 years, and it never disappoints! Photos are a true depiction, but it doesn't include the sounds: lapping water just steps away, guls and other sea birds bathing on the shore, the (welcome sound!) the lighthouse foghorn! Hosts read you like a book and either chat with you about life or the area or let you bask in this
wonderful part of the California coast. Can't wait to return. Thank you!

About the Host, .. H + M
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.
