About This Listing
Montara is a wonderful little town where you feel like you are in the country, but 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 on the ocean with beautiful rolling hills. 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 or a little longer drive to 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 into the late evening. The room contains a queen size bed, a dresser and a desk. The room is off of the kitchen so there is some noise when we cook breakfast but in general the house is pretty calm and the town is very quiet. Breakfast is not provided but we are happy to have you cook in the kitchen.
Wonderful place with great hosts. Janet and Ram were inviting, warm, and had lots of great suggestions for activities in the area. The space was clean, comfortable, and had everything I needed. The location is perfect, convenient to all the beaches and hiking spots, yet peaceful. Easy parking. Highly recommended. Thanks for a lovely weekend!

Ram and Janet are great folks and one feels at home with them. They are both very interesting, kind and generous people. I very much enjoy our talks together. Their home is ideally located near the coast with easy access to the places I need to be.
A gorgeous 30-minute drive from San Francisco, I found Janet and Ram's place to be delightful for a weekend filled with both the awe-inspiring natural beauty of Northern California and the connectedness that a global city offers. I was welcomed into their warm, meditative home for a weekend that I needed to be close to the city but wanted a peaceful night's sleep among the brisk mountain air - I got that and more. I was greeted by Janet who is an awesome host that exudes warmth and friendliness. Would definitely come back!
I just spent three wonderful days with Ram and Janet. They have a very nice and comfortable home, but more important than that is that they are gracious hosts and such interesting people. I loved our chats together and wish I had had time for more. I highly recommend them to anyone staying in the area.

About the Host, Janet & Ram
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.
