Interaction with Guests
We love to host. We want to ensure that your stay in beautiful Half Moon Bay is memorable. We can share information about warm secluded beach locations, our amazing ocean view bike path, restaurants, haunts, redwood hikes, local paddle board and surf spots and off the beaten path places we would visit. We live in a house with a shared backyard to the cottage but will not always be home while guests are visiting.

Adam's chalet is cozy and kinda reminds me of a hotel room! It is located on a lovely property within walking distance of the beach. Adam is super friendly and leaves wine and chocolate and gives a formal tour; he even setup a fire for us! I would recommend staying here.
Many thanks to our host, Adam. The beach casita was elegant & immaculate. Even though we didn't get to meet our host, email communication was warm and informative. We don't get to the west coast often, but we would happily stay here again.
Adam personally showed us the property upon our arrival. We were able to park in the drive which had easy and private access to the cottage. Everything we needed was there, including a personalized bottle of wine, a couple of beers in the fridge, and a full chocolate bar on the pillows. This room was exquisite, complete with fresh flowers, complete instructions for everything from wifi, to locking up. There were also brochures with local info, sites, etc. This location is ideal for hitting the beach or walking to town as it is in between both. Adam made us a special organic green juice on morning of departure. My husbands favorite as he is a daily juicer and was missing this part of his daily routine while traveling. Adam also provides bicycles and beach chairs, a nice touch. Although the home is in the personal backyard of the family residence, we were quite appreciative of the privacy allowed by owners children and pets being kept in main house . There is a nice small private area to one side of the chalet that has a small firepit. Adam had thoughtfully prepared a small bundle of wood for an evening fire. This is a great place for a restful retreat. There is no TV, which works for us, and no dining in table, which didn't work well for us, but those are the only two things I can think of that could be a hick-up for some.
This place was GORGEOUS! You can tell that Adam and his wife enjoy being great hosts. From the gifts they leave you in the room to the amenities (coffee, tea, toiletries) - they don't skimp when it comes to delivering a top-notch experience.
The place is as described in the photos, but they've built it at a much higher quality than you'd expect for a rental.
My only regret is that I couldn't stay longer!
My husband and I stayed here for our 10-year wedding anniversary. The Beach Chalet was fabulous. The inside was beautifully decorated. We were very comfortable. The hosts were friendly and accommodating. We took their suggestions on restaurants and activities-- including a wonderful drive to the Purissima Redwoods. We would definitely stay here again!
We had a perfect week along a gorgeous coastline. The chalet is pristine, private and relaxing day and night. If you like to walk to the beach, have beach bikes on hand and enjoy a hot tub, perfect showers and super comfortable evenings, this is THE place. Lots of nice touches. It was pretty cool to cook Swiss Chard with leaves the size on an Adirondack chair from the garden. Is it the sea air? We'll be back!
This well appointed chalet is exactly as advertised. We found the place to be very comfortable and cozy, and enjoyed the bottle of wine and chocolates left by the host. It was fun to ride the comfortable beach cruiser bikes along the beach and all of Adam's suggestions for dining and entertainment were spot on. Although the hosts were out of town while we were there, they were still attentive to our needs. Highly recommend - we plan to come back again!
About the Host, Adam
My wife and I are adventure enthusiasts. It is the main reason we moved to Half Moon Bay, CA. Here we surf, run up mountains, mountain bike in the redwoods, and garden in the backyard. We love Half Moon Bay, and want you too as well. We pride ourselves in hosting. We are constantly hosting our friends and family and thought we should extend ourselves towards hosting guests. We will recommend adventures for you while you are visiting if you wish as we know the landscape and coolest spots and restaurants. We also can let you in on some of Half Moon Bay's hidden gems and adventures (please inquire if you want to know).
