The Space

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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Clean place and nice people!

  • I had a fantastic stay with Janet & Ram! They provide a great, spacious room, in a beautiful home that is located in a lovely neighborhood in Montara, CA.

    Janet and Ram are fun to talk to, they are knowledgeable about the area and helped me find places and stores that I was interested in.

    They live in a convenient location that is close to the airport, good surfing beaches, many shops + restaurants and they are right off of the coastal highway.

    I was lucky to see a family of whales swimming northward very close to shore, along the beach that is located just a couple of minutes from their home.

    I would like to visit California again soon, and I would definitely stay with them again.

  • This property is conveniently located just 40 minutes away from SFO, so it was the perfect place to stay when i had a noon flight, back to Canada.
    The house is quiet, and just a few blocks from the ocean. I was able to enjoy the backyard hot-tub before going to bed, so that was a bonus. Ram and Janet are both friendly hosts.

  • Janet and Ram are delightful hosts, engaging and fun, they got my trip off to a great start and had excellent suggestions for places to see and experience along the Pacific Coast Highway. Their light filled, well decorated home with a lovely backyard is an oasis in a nice, quiet neighborhood, easy walking distance to the beach and hills with an awesome view of the sunset! I look forward to my next stay with Janet and Ram, they are such wonderful people!

  • A comfortable bed, a very good shower, a quiet home and, for me, a very convenient location.

  • Janet and Ram are so kind. Their grown kids came over for dinner. They have raised some great kids. I really enjoyed staying with them.

  • Janet (email hidden). Only saw her for a few minutes due to our schedules. Bed comfortable and everything is very clean. Would certainly stay here again.

  • we spent a wonderful night at Janet and Ram's house. Everything was clean and the hosts are very nice people. Just one thing: make sure to find out how to work the shower. We couldn't figure it out and they retired for the night before I could ask them. The village of Montara is peaceful and beautiful. We had a great time just walking up the street before bed.

  • Just what we needed!!!

  • J'ai passé un excellent moment chez Janet et Ram pendant ces deux jours. Notamment une soirée avec eux à refaire le monde en dégustant du thé népalais !
    Leur maison est idéalement située, sur la côte, à 10min de la plage à pied et à 30 min de San Francisco et pourtant déjà complètement en dehors de la zone "urbaine".
    Niveau confort, c'était top moumoute, salle de bain indépendante, chambre confortable, jardin ombragé, petite part de quiche faite maison laissée le matin à mon intention :')

    Pas de soucis au niveau de la communication en amont de la réservation, réactivité, souplesse pour la remise des clés.
    Janet a même prévu un petit guide pour les visiteurs avec les choses a faire sur place et dans les alentours !

    Pour les surfeurs: La maison est moins de 10 min de Pillar Point. Ajoutez le temps de rame et vous êtes au lineup de Mavericks ;)

    Bref, c'était vraiment parfait ! Merci Janet, Merci 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.
