Interaction with guests
The cottage is situated on the same property as our home. We will let you in (or arrange for you to get a key) and are happy to answer any questions you have. We love hosting, meeting new people and traveling ourselves.
The cottage is located in a quiet residential area 5 minutes from the Coastal Trail and situated conveniently between Poplar and Kelly Beach access points. A 10 minute walk puts your feet in the sand.
You are also a 15 minute walk from Historical Down Town HMB, great restaurants, shops and grocery.
You are walking distance from pretty much everything you could want in Half Moon Bay.
There is a bus stop 5 minutes away that provides easy access to San Mateo/Hillsdale (drops you near Hillsdale Caltrain) and San Francisco via Pacifica.
While visiting Half Moon Bay, pretty much everything you could want is a short walk or bike ride away.
With that said, getting to and from Half Moon Bay is easiest with a car, especially if you are planning on exploring the surrounding areas. This is not specific to our listing, but just general advice for the area.
