This lovingly renovated 125-year-old schoolhouse is nestled in a peaceful rural canyon just two miles from Pacific Ocean beaches and downtown Half Moon Bay.
A tasteful blend of furnishings and decor create a warm atmosphere of rustic elegance. The gourmet kitchen, with custom cabinets, Viking Stove and stainless steel appliances, opens onto the living room with wall-to-wall windows and a stone fireplace - perfect for socializing while you cook. The dining room overlooks the canyon, and the large den offers views of the garden and has shelves full of books, movies and games - and a huge couch to enjoy them all. Heated floors and radiant heat throughout. Flower, vegetable and herb gardens, fruit trees and farm fresh eggs from our entertaining, friendly and colorful hens!
The front decks overlooking the yard and gardens, back deck with hot tub, gas BBQ and glass dining table, games, media, a closet full of hundreds of great DVDs. Oh yes -- and we often have fresh eggs from our beautiful hens!
Interaction with guests
I am usually here to greet guests, and since I live in the house when it's not rented, it is equipped with many additional "homey" condiments, amenities, etc. Depending on my work schedule, I leave town once guests have arrived, or I sometimes stay in a studio on the property. If I am not here, there is a caretaker on site who can answer any questions. There two other tenants, but you will most likely not see them at all. Your privacy is important and will not be compromised.
Other things to note
Please do not approach Chico-our rescue dog from Mexico. He is afraid of strangers. I'll introduce you if you want!
Cell service is sketchy depending on your provider. I do have a land line for you -- and let me know if you have ATT. I can add your number to my booster.
There is always coffee and tea!
One of my tenants is a wonderful massage therapist (who works at the Ritz Carlton). She offers massages to guests if she is available. Please request appointments in advance.
No smoking in the house. No parties or events hosted without agreement with host. No pets.

I am a writer, designer, filmmaker living with my daughter in a renovated schoolhouse that I also rent out as a vacation home in a rural coastside canyon just south of San Francisco.
