When staying in Montara, you feel like you are out in the country and yet it is only 30 minutes to San Francisco. It is right on the ocean so you can come for a vacation or you can commute to San Francisco or Silicon Valley.
Montara is one of the nicest towns on the coast because it is right on the ocean, has beautiful rolling hills and has endless walks and hikes. You can take beautiful walks in the hills and neighborhood and down to the beach, hang out in the quaint little town of Half Moon Bay or take a day trip to San Francisco, Santa Cruz and even Marin County, the East Bay and Palo Alto and the rest of The Peninsula.
Our house is very inviting, spacious and warm with a great kitchen with skylights that keep it light late into the evening. There are two bedrooms, a living room and a beautiful backyard with a small hot tub. We do live in the house and only rent it out once in a while but do rent a room in the house more often.
We had a great experience with Janet. She was prompt to respond and extremely helpful. The location is very nice and the beach is walkable. It is important to note that this is Ram and Janet's home and not a vacation rental. The house is exactly as pictured/described and was clean and comfortable. You really can't beat the price. For the price of getting one hotel room in that area for the night we were able to get a two bedroom house where we could cook our own meals. It was perfect for our needs for the weekend.
We only stayed a couple of nights but enjoyed the location and the house! This was the only airbnb on our trip that wasn't a 'pure' holiday home so it felt a bit awkward as we sent Janet and Ram away! It was great to meet them though and they we were very friendly and welcoming. Nice quiet location, we enjoyed the local beach and Half Moon Bay. The kids enjoyed the back yard too. Thanks very much for letting us borrow your house!
Beautiful home, lovely location. The home was very welcoming and cozy. Janet provided ample information and stayed in-contact throughout our trip planning. Truly a great place to be for our time in Montara.
This apartment is beautiful and comfortable, and Janet and Ram were great. They responded quickly and were easy to communicate with. We got married nearby and rented this apartment for my bridesmaids, and then used it as the space where we got ready in the morning before the ceremony. The kitchen is comfortable and pretty, with a nice dining area. I would certainly stay here again.
good location with plenty to do. tucked in a neighborhood in montara. janet & ram were very responsive and accommodating. as with other airbnb rentals, the house is lived in (vs. a pure rental house you may find on (website hidden)), and has a smell of cooking. this is a good affordable option in the area.
What a deal! Beautiful, spacious home. Easy to get to and easy to settle into. Just bring you own food, all the spices and cooking tools are there. We were only there one night, so didn't get to explore the yard and neighborhood, but the looked very inviting.

We are a positive, friendly and tolerant couple in our forties who love living in Montara as much as we love traveling. I, Janet, grew up in Northern California and am currently working as a counselor at the local community college. Ram grew up in Pokhara, Nepal and runs our retail shop in Half Moon Bay that sells merchandise from Asia. We met when I went to Nepal and India in my twenties to find myself and luckily found my wonderful husband too! For fun, we like to hike, bike, read, garden, listen to music, watch movies and hang out with friends and family.
We love traveling and have traveled a great deal in Asia. We are looking forward to getting back there and also exploring other parts of the world too. We enjoy the great cultural exchange of hosting people from all parts of the world and look forward to meeting you.
