“Bed and breakfast ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

Wow, this place is so romantic. I enjoyed the whale theme and attention to detail. But the best was the gas fireplaces and the lovely gardens. Half-moon bay has a lot of restaurants and winetasting nearby. I can't wait to go back ! Oh I forgot to mention the bed. Very large, very comfortable, I loved the linens and bathrobes as well. I thought the wine service in the evening as well as the breakfast was also fabulous

My wife and I spent one night here and loved the experience. Not only was it our first stay here, but also our first B&B. The property just recently re-opened after major renovations by the new owner, and we had to have been one of the first visitors. The location was great as we wanted to explore main street in Half Moon Bay, and we just parked at the property and didn't need our car again.

The property was very tastefully decorated and exceptionally clean and fresh. Although we had never been there before it was clear that almost everything from the paint on the walls to the furniture was brand new. The main floor of the property is a common area with a small-ish living room and a dining room where breakfast is served. I would describe it as upscale casual - simple but comfortable and inviting.

Our room had a huge, beautiful, very comfortable bed, a very nice sitting area and a great bathroom with an old-style claw foot tub. The quality of the linens and towels was exceptional, and everything else was as you would expect for an upscale room (toiletries, HDTV with Direct TV, etc.). The photos on the website represented the room well but in person it was actually a little bigger and more luxurious than expected.

David (the owner), was a gracious and friendly host. There was nice wine and a cheese plate available at 5pm and we enjoyed it in the garden at the outdoor fireplace and met some new friends. Breakfast the next morning was also delicious and generous, and David was very accommodating to our dietary needs.

Definitely give this place a try when you're in Half Moon Bay.
