I started a website for visitors - it's a work in progress, but check it out:
The building on the coast is Point Montara Lighthouse
Hope to meet you soon,
BEST PLACE TO STAY IN THE ENTIRE BAY AREA! I couldn't be more pleased with my visit to Montara. I came and checked out the studio, and ended up staying for months! The studio is charming, the town is exquisite, and you won't find a host as gracious, accommodating, and knowledgable about the area as Therese.
Whether you're a business traveler or vacation goer, this place is perfect for everyone. The studio is equipped with everything you could possibly need throughout your stay. Montara is safe, quiet, offers plenty of recreation and features beauty unmatched by anywhere else along the coast. You'll never have to worry about finding or paying for parking, and traffic is quick. Enjoy easy access to the airport, downtown, or anywhere along the coast in your car.
I would recommend this place to anyone over any hotel or other online listing no matter what the purpose of your travel. Thanks Therese!
Therese has an amazing place. She was a wonderful host and it was a pleasure meeting her. The studio is near the ocean and is roomy, clean, and private with everything you would need for a short or long stay. Pacifica and Half Moon Bay are beautiful areas with stunning beaches. I would love to stay there again.
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful experience at the Montara Studio. Therese was very friendly and accommodating; she met us at our preferred check-in time with keys and helpful tips about the neighborhood. The studio was the perfect mix of style & comfort, and we spent most of our time relaxing inside of it instead of exploring the beautiful landscape. At least we got to savor the amazing views of the Pacific Ocean on our way to and from some good eats. We would definitely stay here again. Perfect for a mini-vacation from the city.
Therese was a very gracious host. Not only was she there to greet us, but also gave us helpful advice on how to access a great hilly hike up Montara Mountain from the studio. The studio itself was lovely-kitchen, cute stove, murphy's bed plus a great sleeping nook in the corner, where we settled. The studio was comfortably warm with a gas stove too. I definitely would come back and stay here if in the area again. We originally were looking to stay at the Montara hostel but this was SO MUCH BETTER. Great place, awesome host.
