About the area

Half Moon Bay is a coastal city in San Mateo County, California, United States. Its population was 11,324 as of the 2010 census. Immediately at the north of Half Moon Bay is the Pillar Point Harbor and the unincorporated community of Princeton-by-the-Sea. Half Moon Bay is located at approximately 25 miles (40 km) south of San Francisco, 10 miles (16 km) west of San Mateo, and 45 miles (72 km) north of Santa Cruz. Neighboring cities include Montara, Moss Beach, and El Granada to the north and Purissima, San Gregorio, and Pescadero to the south. It is situated on a bay of the same name. Major local industries include agriculture (houseplants, floriculture, Christmas trees, pumpkins, artichokes), fishing, and tourism. Historically, Half Moon Bay had been known as San Benito and Spanishtown. A popular spot at Half Moon Bay is the 'Jetty,' or as it is sometimes called, 'The Breakwater.' This is a man-made break with unusual waves shaped by reflections from the breakwater at Pillar Point Harbor. Streams in Half Moon Bay include Frenchmans Creek, Pilarcitos Creek and Naples Creek. Montara State Marine Reserve & Pillar Point State Marine Conservation Area extend offshore from Montara, just north of Half Moon Bay. Like underwater parks, these marine protected areas help conserve ocean wildlife and marine ecosystems. Half Moon Bay usually has mild weather throughout the year. Under the Köppen climate classification, Half Moon Bay has a cool summer mediterranean climate (Köppen Csb). Hot weather is rare; the average annual days with highs of 90 °F (32 °C) or higher is only 0.4 days.

“10 Stars!”

Reviewed 1 May 2016

My wife and I got married in Pescadero in April 2016 and felt so fortunate to have found Bing/Helen's house for my family to stay during our wedding week. They were an absolute godsend and made our entire family feel so welcomed. If I could give them 10 stars, I would! The house is amazing, gorgeous, and very spacious. We spent most of our time hanging out and socializing in the beautifully designed communal living/dining/kitchen area. There was no waiting in line for bathrooms or showers, because each bedroom had its own. My wife and I stayed in the Master Bedroom downstairs, which was way better than any room in a 5 star hotel. We had a magical wedding week and staying at Bing/Helen's house was an integral part of the whole experience. I would highly recommend anyone thinking about renting their place to do so!

“Amazing house with amazing owners”

Reviewed 16 Aug 2015

Stayed for a couple of nights in this truly fantastic house in a great location. Rooms were lovely and very comfortable, as were the bathrooms, especially the rain shower! The house was spotlessly clean and came with everything you could possibly need. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel extremely welcome by the wonderful owners, who really made our stay even better, thank you so very much, we will absolutely be coming to stay again!

Owner's reply: It was a pleasure to meet you an your friends. Your guys are the best! I enjoyed our conversations very much. Welcome you come back when you next time in the bay aera! Bing

“Relax and enjoy”

We had a wonderful time in Half Moon Bay at Ocean16. Lots's of space and privacy and Bing was a great host. Everyone loved the home and it had everything we needed.

Owner's reply: Thank you, Michael, for your staying with us and keep the house clean and in order!

“A beautiful home”

Reviewed 25 May 2015

I rented this house in Half Moon Bay for 5 nights in May. I needed a big house that could accommodate my family who flew in from all over the country to attend my daughter's wedding. I couldn't have been happier with my choice. The house is immaculate. The kitchen is well stocked with lovely dishes etc. The furniture is modern and comfortable. The linens are gorgeous!! The house has 5 bedrooms but there is a great sofa bed upstairs and a number of queen/ full air mattresses. We had dinner at home on 2 of the nights and had no problem seating 15/16 at the table. The owners are lovely. They live on the premises in separate quarters. They are just a phone call away if you have any questions. I should mention that the technology in the house is state of the art. Even the shower in the master bath is high tech. The younger members in our group loved the coffee machine in the kitchen. It looks like one you would find at Starbucks. If you are looking for an amazing house with a great view in the Half Moon Bay Area that can accommodate large groups, this is the house to rent. It is by far the best rental home I have ever stayed in. We were sad to leave.

Owner's reply: Dear Miriam, Thank you for your kind words! Appreciate your review. We are glad to hear that you and your family enjoyed your stay with us. It was such a pleasure to meet you and your beautiful family! I still felt bad about that I could not provide you with an extra dining table at the time when you requested. I am planning to purchase a formal rectangular dinning table to accommodate big family dinning. Thanks again. Bing

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Hi Mr Bing,

Here is my feedback about the house. You can give 4.5 stars from our side :)

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this house. The house was beautiful, tastefully decorated and sufficiently sized for our party of 20 people. The owners were helpful and were readily available to answer any questions. I'd definitely recommend this house to anyone who'd like to rent this house in future.

Couple of suggestions - a music system and a Trash Bin. During our stay, we could find recycle bin and Green Yard bin but no proper Trash Bin.

Regards
Mahesh
