Very nice and cozy place. We stayed during 3 nights at the end of our road trip in the US. The location is perfect to visit San Francisco. Very close to the house you can find a very good restaurant. The dogs are very funny. We have to say a big thank you for all the good advices we received to organize our trip. We definitely recommend this place.
I loved staying in Montara, and Adam and Caroline were excellent hosts. The house is situated on a hill with spectacular views of the beach, and I had the entire downstairs area to myself. There's a great deck and hot tub outside, a number of comfy sitting areas/TVs, and you're in walking distance from the beach and some great hikes. My room and bathroom were spotless and as advertised, with sufficient privacy.
I was living here and working in Palo Alto; if you're thinking of doing the same, I recommend commuting in the off hours. Montara is great if you want to live on the beach and don't want to deal with the crowds at Pacifica or Half Moon Bay.
The house was beautiful - just like the pictures - and Adam was extremely hospitable! The house was well set up with our own side entrance, bedroom with a very comfy bed, bathroom, minifridge, coffeemaker, sitting room with TV, private outdoor hot tub, fire pit... much more than we expected.
Adam and Caroline live here as well, but we had the entire bottom floor to ourselves and offered very helpful recommendations for restaurants and things to do in the area. They also have two friendly dogs that we loved to interact with (Adam also offered to section them off upstairs but we liked to interact with them). Adam also communicated well with us to make sure he could be there to welcome us and show us the amenities.
The area itself is very quiet; we visited Pacifica (10 mins north) for happy hour, Half Moon Bay (5 mins south) for dinner, and walked to a cafe one block away for breakfast.
Overall, we would highly recommend Adam and Caroline's place for a getaway!
I booked this trip as a b-day gift for my mom. The hosts were super friendly, and she had a wonderful time. She loves the Ocean so the location was perfect. 5/5, would stay again.
Great communication with Adam & Caroline, and we love the place. We pretty much have the whole downstairs to ourselves including the outdoor patio and the 2 person jacuzzi. Since my husband and I were there for a night to celebrate my birthday, they were really nice and even left a "Happy Birthday" message to me in front of the room. :-)) They were very helpful and always eager to ensure that our stay is comfortable and smooth. It's also a plus that it's walking distance to Montara Beach and some great hiking trails. Great place!

About the Host, Adam
My wife Caroline and I are both Staff Nurses. She works in the ER and I spend my days in the Operating Room. We both love the outdoors, hanging with our two dogs, entertaining, traveling, hiking, biking, and when the winds are right, I love to go Paragliding!
