      Charming spot in Half Moon Bay

      With so many hotels and B&Bs dropping or downsizing breakfast due to COVID, it was a pleasant surprise to have a (nearly) normal breakfast experience. Yes, breakfast was staggered, so claim your breakfast time as soon as you check in. This is charming place to stay with its Nantucket and whale themes, mixed with contemporary touches. Easy walkability to downtown (I might also recommend dinner at the nearby Pasta Moon.) Wine is available at 5pm, and happy hour extends leisurely into the evening. And enjoy your wine in the side garden with its relaxing fountain. On site parking is limited to 3 spaces, and the immediate street parking is capped at 2 hours (though I believe you can park after 9pm). I parked down the block a bit so that I could just leave the car as long as I wanted. Check-in is from 4 to 6. Though on Main Street, there is little traffic noise in late evening and the night. Great place to stay. Great base for exploration of Half Moon Bay and the coast.

      Very comfortable, very quiet. Sandra is a wonderful hostess, and you will be made to feel welcome the moment you step inside. Located on the edge of Old Town, a 3 minute walk from a shop, beverage, and/or a meal. A

      Very quaint, clean & comfortable! David is the host and is very friendly and attentive. This place was reserved for my elderly parents who enjoyed their stay very-much. They wished they had more days and that only means that they will return! Thank you David and Staff.

      Highly recommend anyone looking for quiet get-away with exceptional service from the minute you arrived until the morning you leave! David is absolutely wonderful. The rooms are quaint and comfortable with a Nantucket vibe. Breakfast was amazing every morning. The back patio is filled with flowers, trees, a water fountain and fire pit which made it a perfect spot to read a book, play a round of cards or sit and enjoy a glass of wine. We felt at home with such personal attention! Not to mention the town is darling and everything was within walking distance including the beach that had a bike path that went on for miles! A perfect place to run, ride a bike or take a stroll enjoying the beautiful beach views! We will definitely return!

      It’s a charming home with lovely grounds. David, the host, was very accommodating. We had a tasty breakfast in the morning and wine in the afternoon. There is a small parking lot in front of the house but it was easier to park on the public street in front of the lot.
