Enjoy staying in an immaculate studio apartment in lovely downtown Half Moon Bay. The apartment is part of an original coastal craftsman home built in 1902 with its own private entrance. The space has high 9ft ceilings, gorgeous hard wood floors, one large bedroom, a full (but small) bathroom, and a full kitchen. Only one block off historic Main Street, shopping, dining, and entertainment are just minutes away. Have a vacation from your car! Anything you'll need is in easy walking distance: Cunha's country store, It's Italia restaurant, Sushi Main Street and San Benito House are all only one block away. HMB Bike Works is two blocks down the street and they rent bicycles. The beach is only .8 miles away and the paved coastal trail is fun and easy to access. We have free high speed internet and are glad to answer any questions about where to go and what to do while staying in town.

There is no shared space between the main house and the apartment. You have your own kitchen and bathroom and private enterance. There is free wifi as well as a sound dock for your iPhone or iPod. Free parking is available right in front of the house.
Interaction with Guests
Most of our guests, we never meet in person. We do enjoy meeting our guests however and love to give tips on great places to dine as well as places to go during your stay in Half Moon Bay.
Historic downtown Half Moon Bay is full of small coastal town charm. There is a wonderful selection of restaurants, bookstores, gift shops, and more that is unique to Half Moon Bay. We are located right in the middle of downtown but it never feels noisy or crowded, except maybe during Pumpkin Festival in October.
Please no smoking in or around the house.
We try to keep noise down after 10pm.
We have a cat that does not go in the apartment but it's best to leave your pets at home.
Please NO SAND in the apartment. It ruins the finish on the hardwood floors. If you go to the beach, your shoes and clothes and everything else will be covered in sand. Avoid bringing the beach indoors by removing your shoes and thoroughly brushing off your clothes, towels, beach bag, cooler...etc. before entering.
Enjoyed my stay. Thank you for providing a comfortable space in Half Moon Bay! Cute studio and convenient location. Recommend for locals and travelers alike.
Great little place with perfect location in HMB. Two blocks from Pasta Moon (must go! Great food and atmosphere). We will be back for sure! Paul was great... Perfect communications including tips...He quickly supplied us with ice when the refrigerator gave out one evening... and surprised us by having a new refrigerator the next day! Future guests get a new fridge! The kitchen has a coffee maker, coffee grinder, much more- a gas stove/oven and microwave. Nice little place. Walk down Kelly street to the beach which has nice benches and a multipurpose paved trail along the beach.
Paul was extremely communicative and answered all my questions in a very timely manner. He was helpful about places to eat, shop, and visit in the area. He's very concerned that you have a great time in Half Moon Bay during your visit.
The studio has everything you'd want and is in a great location within walking distance of downtown. Will definitely be back when I'm in town!
This was a comfortable studio with a charming kitchen and plenty of sunlight. Easy access to shopping and the beach. Very nice hosts. Thank you for a pleasant stay!
Excellent location! An easy walk to downtown, don't have to worry about parking everything is within walking (and biking) distance. Beach is closeby for seeing the sunset, which is a must! Heater was a lifesaver during the winter season.
This is a lovely mother-in-law's suite with a great kitchen and bathroom space. The room itself had a lot of character and personality and was well appointed.
The beach, hiking and 4-star Yelp restaurants are right around the corner. Would highly recommend.
I so enjoyed Paul's house. It was exactly as described and extremely comfortable for my partner and I. The space has warm energy and is very cozy. The kitchen was supplied with everything, and we were able to cook our meals. Paul even provided complimentary food and champagne for New Year's Eve. The location is beyond perfect for exploring downtown Half Moon Bay. We live only 20 minutes away, but it really felt like a vacation. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it for anyone looking to get away.
Hi my name is Paul and I live in Half Moon Bay with my lovely wife Meg and my wonderful daughter Poppy. I love mountain biking and have raced all over the state. Meg is an amazing yoga practitioner and has studied in India. Poppy loves pre-school and swimming. We traveled all over staying as guests through Airbnb before we bought our home and became hosts ourselves. Hosting has been a wonderful experience and we have had to opportunity to meet people from all over the world. Our rental is very private however; many of our guests we never meet in person, but we always enjoy it when we do. We look forward to meeting you if you stay with us or if we stay with you!
