****HAVE A WONDERFUL TIME!!!!!!**********
We didn't get the chance to meet Jahci, but the instructions were very clear and we had no problem checking in. The house was clean and she had made up the futon made up for our additional 2 guests as well as put out plenty of towels in the bathroom. The best part of the house was the sunroom and view of the ocean. We spent most of our time out there. Another small perk was that there were plenty of dishes to accommodate our morning coffee and snacks. Overall we had a fantastic Memorial Day weekend while staying at her place.
I'll be blunt, the apartment is a top unit so you shared air space with the unit below allowing for free smells. It didn't bother us much, but there was definitely smells of pot drifting up at varying intensities throughout our stay. It's a surfer town after all so it wasn't a big deal, but for future renters, if you're sensitive to that type of thing you might want to talk more with Jahci before renting.
We stayed here for 12 nights and were extremely satisfied. Jahci was a gracious and responsive host. We did not meet her in person, but she always responded quickly by text or email to any questions we had, both before we came and while we were there.
The unit is the top floor of a house, with its own entrance and a fantastic view of the ocean. You can see the ocean from inside, but better yet from the deck. Part of the deck is covered, part is not. You can sit on the deck and watch waves breaking and pelicans flying in the distance.
The place is very spacious and clean, with a well-furnished, large kitchen. We made breakfasts there, enjoying the view of the ocean from the deck while we ate. We made lunches to take with us. For dinners, we went out to several excellent restaurants nearby, including several on the ocean (The Distillery, Mirimar by the Sea). Try Highway 1 Brewery on the coast south of Half Moon Bay. We did cook a few dinners at home as well. And there is a good pizza place and a convenience store within walking distance. A mile north is Here Comes the Sun, a local coffee shop, which we visited every morning for espresso or a latte.
You can take a 5 minute walk to beautiful pathways along the cliffs, then walk north along the cliff and watch the surf breaking on the rocks. At the end of that trail, you can walk down to a beautiful beach. Often you can see pelicans. Another walk is south to Fitzgerald Marine Reserve, where there are often harbor seals lounging on the beach.
Although you can hear highway 1 traffic in the distance, it was not very loud in the unit, and there was almost no traffic at night. (The bedroom faces away from the highway).
It was ideally located for us. Moss Beach is quiet and not overdeveloped, with the cliff trails nearby. A 10 minute drive south takes you to Half Moon Bay, which has drug stores, bookstores, supermarkets, a fish market, a french bakery, and restaurants. Jahci provided a basket filled with pamphlets describing local attractions and restaurants. She also advised us on where to buy groceries.
During the week, we took day hikes on nearby beaches and redwood forests. Ano Neuvo State Beach has a large, raucous herd of elephant seals. Purisma Reserve has towering redwoods and slowly crawling banana slugs. (We counted 82 slugs in a 2 mile stretch.) Half Moon Bay State Beach with its cliffs and ravines is spectacular -- we recommend parking at Poplar Street parking area and walking south from there.)
On the weekends, we visited my son and his wife in San Francisco -- only a 35 minute drive from Moss Beach. (The trick is finding parking.)
So, we had a wonderful time, and highly recommend Yachi and her place.
Jahci was a fantastic host. She warmly welcomed us, and she was incredibly thoughtful and responsive. She even bought us some organic apples -- a treat after a long plane flight. The space was perfect. It was clean and lovely. And the view was great. The beach right across the street is a marine mammal sanctuary, and we loved watching the harbor seals (dozens of them!) playing in the waves and sunning on the shore. We would certainly love to stay again! Much Appreciation.
The place is very comftorable, has a huge balcony and a very nice sun room. The morning were great just relaxing in the sun with a beautiful view just getting light work done on the computer. There is a full kitchen which was very continent. If you are looking for a quite l, nice and calm get away, that's the spot for you.
We found Jahci's listing at the last minute before Valentine's Day weekend, and I have to say that our experience was perfect. The house is gorgeous and well-equipped. The outdoor deck overlooking the water was beautiful, and we were able to catch an amazing sunset the night of our stay.
Jahci was extremely accommodating and helpful -- we got into the unit without any difficulty and had a couple of very nice phone calls with Jahci. She explained various tips about the house and even suggested a couple places to go to for food and sightseeing. Even though I didn't get the chance to meet Jahci in person (though she offered to stop by), I loved the hospitality and felt that we were in good hands.
Jahci was very helpful and friendly. The house was super nice - clean, comfortable and spacious. It was neat waking up surrounded by the foggy weather after having a fun, long day at the Pumpkin Festival and staying up late playing board games. We would recommend staying here!
