I'm an artist, writer and teacher from Half Moon Bay.
Chris was a wonderful host. We did not get to spend much time in Half Moon Bay, but Chris waited for us to arrive from the airport, kept a light on in our room and pointed us in the right direction of places to visit and explore around the area. We look forward to stopping by again soon.
We looked at places all over HMB to find a perfect place for our surf weekend. We couldn't asked for a better place. When we first came to the house we spent much time just looking at all the art work in the house. Its amazing and you can tell that nothing is random placed here. Chris has put a lot of love, personality and creativity in everything from decor, furniture and material. She was a perfect host and very responsive to all of my weird questions. Her cat, Sudan, is so cute and funny. I've never met a more talkative cat! Def recommend this for a group of friends going away for the weekend without having to drive hours and hours away from the city! Also, if you like a zen, feng shui kind of environment, you're in heaven here!
Chris's house is just amazing, with all the art on the walls and cozy living room. Will stay there again.
Chris's place was a great accommodation for us! Right off the beach and near so many of the restaurants we ate at. Bright and colorful with many different paintings and artifacts. Rooms and couch was comfortable and it was very spacious for us 7 girls. Sudan, the cat was so sweet and very vocal!
Chris was very quick to respond and made sure the place was clean and tidy for us to use. I would definitely recommend her place if you are looking for a nice weekend stay!
Chris was such a welcoming host and definitely went the extra mile in helping us feel welcomed and comfortable at her beautiful place. We absolutely loved the artwork that covered most of the walls and gave so much character to the place! Oh, and did I mention that there's an adorable cat that wanders around being friendly? I'd definitely recommend Chris' place as a great jumping board to exploring Half Moon Bay and the Pacific Coast!
Big, comfortable house with very interesting decor. Great pots and pans available for use. The only problem we had was that there was no heads-up in the listing about a cat living in the house. A few people in our group were allergic to the cat. It was a minor issue, but the owner never mentioned it as well until we got there.
Response from Chris:
Sorry that the cat bothered you…. if you read the details of my listings it says, "Sudan, the resident cat, will keep you company.." maybe you didn't see it.
We stayed at Chris's for New Year's Eve and had a great time. The house is amazing - very cozy and comfortable, and the cat was really sweet. Chris was very quick with communication, and the whole process was very seamless and easy. A great house in a great location!
Our stay was great. Chris' home felt very homey and it's great for larger groups. The Christmas tree was HUGE. The cat was welcoming and was very vocal hahaha
My group and I had an amazing stay at Chris'. The place was easy to get to, clean and the location was perfect with about a 5 minute walk to the beach! We had a little problem with the stereo system (it's a little outdated) but that's the only problem we had during our one night stay. Chris left us a note and gave us her number to contact her if we needed anything - that was the gist of our exchange during the stay. We really wanted privacy so that was perfect! It was nice not to have an overbearing host. It was chill and relaxing. The house is adorable and so quirky with all its decor and art. We loved it! Definitely will stay here again and definitely recommend it! Thank you so much Chris!
Chris' home was perfect for our "Friendsgiving". The kitchen was fully stocked to help make our feast. The house is warm and inviting with lots of colorful artwork. We spent a lot of time lounging in the backyard which has a chiminea for when the sun goes down. Chris was very friendly and responsive to any last minute questions we had.
We would absolutely recommend Chris' beach house to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway.
