Montara, California, United States

Listing #138962

Guest House | Private Space
Rates from USD $1700 | Monthly
Last Updated 18 days ago


This quiet retreat by the ocean has everything you need. Watch the sunset over the Pacific from your porch or walk to the beach and the many trails overlooking the coast around Montara mountain. Amenities, shops and transportation are within a couple of blocks, and San Francisco or Silicon Valley are an easy 30-40 minutes away. We're an international family & have traveled a lot ourselves, so we know the importance of having a comfortable place to recharge and reconnect! You'll be able to hear the distant sound of waves crashing as you enjoy a space that is safe, clean, tranquil and comfortable. You will have your own entrance to the suite, which has a queen bed, its own full bathroom with bathtub and shower head, Wi-Fi, smart TV, mini-fridge, microwave, an electric kettle and a French press for tea or coffee, a closet with an iron and ironing board, a hair dryer, a first-aid kit and all the bedding and bathroom supplies you'll need. You will also have two of each of the following: plates, forks, knives, spoons, mugs, glass cups and glasses, a dishtowel, napkins and tissues. There is a wide desk that may be used for working or dining while looking out to the ocean, and extra chairs for reading or having people over. Bed linens and towels are made of organic cotton and are super soft, and the comforter is organic and extremely cozy as well. The mattress is made of organic latex and cocolatex, firm, and great for your back. While we do not rule out pets, it’s important that our nice organic linens, bedding, upholstery, furniture, appliances etc. be taken good care of and not be ruined, damaged or worn by pets. If you’re intending to come with pets, please let us know. The suite is part of the house and separated by a door that is always locked. We'll be upstairs for anything you may need! We want to make sure you have a comfortable stay and are happy to socialize and show you around while respecting your space and your time as well. The house is on a slope, so there are several steps to the first-floor private porch, which is your entrance to the suite (there are no steps inside). The Neighborhood: Montara is a little-known gem right on the coast near San Francisco. It is just south of Pacifica: a zip through the tunnel and you're in another world. This small town is also just over the mountain from Silicon Valley, providing a much slower pace and a beautiful setting, with kids and pets walking the streets and neighbors saying hello. Both the beach and hiking trails are a short walk away, as is the Peruvian restaurant La Costanera, which is excellent and draws people from all over. You will also enjoy your short morning walk down to Here Comes the Sun, the friendliest and quaintest coffee house on the Coastside! Getting Around: If you've ever driven on Highway 1 along here, you've come through Montara. You can drive North to San Francisco or South to Half Moon Bay and then East over Highway 92 to Silicon Valley. There is a bus providing service along the coast and connecting you to BART, which is an easy way into San Francisco or Berkeley. *** After your reservation is confirmed, we will send you a House Manual with lots of useful information, including a complete list of House Rules and check-in & checkout instructions. Please read the Manual BEFORE you arrive and let us know if you have any questions or if there's anything you'd like to discuss. Clear, open communication is paramount to us. We expect our guests to put as much care and attention into their use of the space and communicating with us as we do. If you’re here during baseball season, we may have San Francisco Giants tickets for you! We offer our guests great seats at a special price.
