“A great stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at Landis Shores. It is a perfect couples only place to get away from everything. Great breakfast both mornings and we enjoyed waking up and standing out on our balcony, looking at the ocean. The moderate temps also made sitting outside in the evenings pleasurable. We loved sitting there, enjoying a bottle of wine. The room itself was just like in the pictures, albeit a bit smaller than expected. Heated tile floors is also a nice touch, even though we didn't need them. There was even a jetted jacuzzi tub in the bathroom. Landis Shores also has an afternoon happy hour with wine and appetizers. Highly recommend Landis Shores if you find yourself in the area.

Room Tip: While all rooms have an ocean view, choose one that directly faces the water.

Stayed for the New Years weekend. Booked a very nice queen room. Room was nicely appointed, modern and well maintained. There is a small balcony with each room and all are ocean front. The view was great. The owners were as hospitable as they can be. We were made to feel very welcome. There is a street and walkway between the lodge and ocean. Not a whole lot of vehicle traffic but there is quite a bit of foot traffic, people jogging, walking dogs to the beach, etc. For myself I was not bothered by it and did enjoy watching the dogs play on the beach. Keep in mind this lodge is more of couples and not families with children. They do have a two person per room rule which is clear when making reservations. I appreciated basically the adults only aspect as of course children will be children and this really isnt the place. The owner/chef really knows his way around the kitchen. Breakfast was terrific. Everything made from scratch. Our weekend included a New Years Eve dinner. We started out on the third floor where homemade hors d'oeuvres and great wines were served. All were excellent. After, we went to the dining area where we were served a four course meal all freshly prepared. Everything from the soup to dessert were as good as it gets. If your looking for an ocean front B & B with great views and food that is basically for couples you couldnt go wrong with Landis Shores. I will be returning.

We stayed in the Landis Shores B+B for the first 4 days of our holiday to California.

This was a great place to overcome the jet lag and chill out. We did walk along the shore, sleep to the sound of the ocean, watch strollers walking their dogs along the shoreline, etc; we also saw dolphins passing by on one day.

The room is clean and very comfortable. The view of the ocean is unobstructed.

The breakfasts are great, the extra tea and coffee available at most times of day was very welcome too.

However, in 4 days we never saw the sun once, foggy every day. This was a surprise to us but to be honest had no effect on our view of this stay at Half Moon Bay. To be able to walk around freely without shade hoping or having to slap on the Sun cream was fine by us. It also added to the mood of the place. One day we did drive in-land and the saw the sun - its only 20 mins away if you really miss it!

So we heartily recommend this place and would seriously consider it on any return visit to California.

Room Tip: all good but sea facing has a slight advantage but yo pay more as expected

If you like to walk along the shore, sleep to the sound of the ocean, watch strollers walking their dogs along the shore line, and just have a relaxing then then you can not beat the Landis. The room is clean and comfortable. The view of the ocean is unobstructed and the sounds and smell of the surf are right there for you. The room is a nice size, tastefully decorated and supported by a nice bath with separate shower. The floors are radiant heat, the fireplace is a nice touch, and the parking is easy. The owners have games, movies, and books that you can enjoy as well as a nice breakfast and afternoon snack that are included. Across the street is a nice restaurant. The only things that I wish could have been better was that the balcony is very small and there is no privacy between you and the next one, we liked to sit out there but our neighbor smoked and when you are so close to each other there is no privacy. Another suggestion would be to update the tv. A bit pricey but worth it.

All 8 rooms have an expansive ocean view, and the inn is right across the street from the beach. Delicious breakfast. Very farm and friendly staff. Fell asleep to sounds of waves every night. Very relaxing. Close to all the local attractions.

We enjoyed our stay at Landis Shores and especially enjoyed how close we were to the ocean and wonderful waves. The lodge is quite nice and very clean. I wish I would have taken my own pillow as the pillows provided were much too soft and lumpy. The bed was a little hard but everyone has there own idea of what's comfortable. The breakfasts were nice and presentation was pretty. Very good coffee and the staff was friendly. The long stretch of beach outside is ideal for a nice long walk. We have stayed in many B&B's and found this one nice but not a five star. It is pricy but you pay for being right at the ocean's edge.

This bed and Breakfast is worth talking about! Amazing rooms, beautiful decor - all related to wineries, fireplace, patio with chairs to sit outside and enjoy the ocean view. All rooms have a view of the ocean. Nice walking trail right out the door. Close to everything you want to see in Half Moon Bay and the Harbor.
The gourmet breakfast was made fresh each morning. Having a glass of wine and appetizers mid-day was a treat.
Brian went all out, to make sure our time was enjoyable. We will let our friends know about this gem!
