  • Great stay in Half Moon Bay


    I visit Half Moon Bay several times a year because my in laws live there, so I have stayed in numerous locations in the area. This property was one of my favorites. I am a clean freak and thoroughly felt comfortable walking around without shoes and I was very comfortable sitting on the furniture and sleeping in the master bed, which had the most comfortable mattresses and pillows. The property is in great condition, well stocked, well appointed, and has a nice layout. My family of four felt very comfortable here. Regarding location, you truly have the best of both worlds by staying in the downtown area while remaining in walking distance to the beach. The hostess, Pam, was responsive and put forth the effort to make sure we had a great stay. Do yourself a favor a book this property, you will not be disappointed!

  • A great near ocean get away!


    - Walk (about 10-15 mins) or very short drive to beach and drive to many other beaches

    - Walk to many great restaurants

    - Over the top conveniences

    - Attention to detail cleanliness

    - So many special touches throughout

    - Loved to be able to buy groceries and cook meals when desired

    - Super quick responses to any question

    - Just loved staying here and being able to stay near HWY 1. It's about 10 to 15 degrees cooler than let's say downtown San Jose but when the Sun is on you, I barely noticed.

    - Just a comfortable space to relax

    - Loved it here

  • Awesome spot!


    Everything was perfect! The home is well stocked with essentials and the place is stunning! An easy walk to downtown and an amazing little bakery for donuts is about a block away! We loved exploring Half Moon Bay and found so many great restaurants and shops!

  • Great Home


    The home was very nicely decorated and supplied with everything anyone needs. They provided spices, oils, lemons, coffee and lots more. Our only suggestion is the ice supply. The ice maker didn't seem to work, and the ice trays were way too difficult to use. We really enjoyed the home and location.

  • Stunning, fabulous appointed, walk to beach


    We loved our April 2023 stay at Pam's place. Beautifully decorated, kitchen fully stocked, Devine beds. We absolutely enjoyed all that downtown half moon bay has to offer. The stunning beach is a 15 min walk away. The beach walk at the Ritz is a short drive.There were games and everything one would need for cooking and little welcome presents. Just wow! Top 1% of places I've stayed at. Pam was super responsive as I asked can I rent an electric car and how hard would it be (absolutely feasible with a super charger a block away).We just felt pampered in this airy VRBO!
