This was a wonderful home next to the beautiful Miramar beach. Spacious, with plenty of light, it's perfect for a party of 8-12 to enjoy their stay in HMB.
The host, Paul, is great at constructing and maintaining homes, but he is difficult to communicate with. The check-in/check-out times are listed as "flexible", but that is a trap. At 11am on the day we were supposed to check out, I called Paul to find out exactly what the checkout time was - and he told me that we had to be out by 11(!). He then tried to claim the $1000 deposit saying that another party was unable to check in on time, even though we left by 1pm and kept the house in pristine condition. Please make sure you discuss all details of your arrival/departure with the host to avoid being ripped off.
We had a wonderful experience staying here. The house is huge, in great shape and the views from the roof deck were spectacular. It really is steps from the beach, where we were able to see seals and dolphins swimming by.
Paul was helpful in giving us the lay of the land including directions to the supermarket. At the same time, the house was stocked with most everything that you'd need.
Want to say thanks and we would definitely come back.
Paul and Leslie were great hosts - they were proactive in reaching out to us to ensure easy entry into the home, and have ensured that their house is furbished with every amenity. The kitchen, audio/visuals, furniture - everything you need for a plush beachfront escape is on hand. Would definitely return for another visit.
p.s. We were a group of 8 and there was more than enough room. Could easily sleep 12.
Paul and Leslee were easy to get in contact with, very informative when I asked questions, and helpful with the reservation process. Paul met us at check-in and gave us a tour and answered any additional questions we had. The house is beautiful and has a great layout! There are many beds, but they are separated enough for us to enjoy privacy. The layout of the kitchen, two dining rooms and gorgeous living room (with ocean view and ceiling mural) is perfect to bring everyone together for group meals and socializing. The rooftop deck is wonderful for having drinks and watching the sunset over the ocean. We barbecued and played lawn games (corn hole, ladder toss, etc) all afternoon in the yard, which has cushy, thick, well-maintained grass and a lot of space for fun and games. Paul has grills in the backyard and on the wrap-around porch so we could grill from both places. The kitchen was well stocked with cookware, dining sets (utensils, glasses of all kinds, and plates/bowls of all sizes), and even a set of spices on the shelves and condiments in the refrigerator. Everything we needed (kitchen supplies, cleaning supplies, towels, blankets, etc) was available and easy to find during our stay. On top of all this beautiful home has to offer, we were less than a 5 minute walk from Half Moon Bay beach! I couldn't be happier with my decision to book this home for the weekend.
The property was fantastic, and in such a good location ~2 minutes walking from the beach. A+!
We had a wonderful stay at this gorgeous and huge house. Our son got married in Half Moon Bay and we used the house to host a rehearsal dinner for 40 people, a home base for people & setting up decorations, and to relax (when we had the chance), and enjoy the view. The view from the decks (4 in all) were amazing! The weather was perfect and we enjoyed many a meal seated at the fire pits at the Miramar Restaurant (delicious and just a short walk away) facing the ocean. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was ample, and there are two dining rooms!
The best part of all was being able to have the room to relax and be able to entertain family. Great for a family/friends time together!
This is a wonderful spacious home for family gathering. Rooms allow everyone to do things together or off on your own. We walked to the beach everyday and also to Princeton. Bring extra paper products, dish soap , dish detergent, and laundry detergent. There are plenty of comfortable beds and linens. Enjoy sunrises and sunsets. We loved it!!!
This house was amazing! Everything I wanted for a large group outing! Paul was VERY nice too!
The reservation was canceled 10 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We stayed at Paul's home during our recent CA road trip. Plenty of space for the 12 of us! Everything was clean and in working order. Only 1 block to the beach and the views are awesome! Located on the North side of Half Moon Bay, so we made the trip up to San Francisco in about an hour (including traffic). Paul met us at his home... he is friendly and welcoming. This is how AirBNB should work! Thanks for everything, Paul.
