Let me just start by saying that I almost NEVER write reviews; it takes a truly phenomenal experience or a truly miserable experience for me to bother wandering into the public forums to share my opinion. With the Beach House at Half Moon Bay, the experience could not have been more positive! My new wife and I chose to head...

Dear Matt A, Thank you for your comments on Tripadvisor and for selecting the Beach House on your honeymoon trip. It is a fact that all of our rooms have fireplaces, and the cool climate permits us to use them on a regular basis. We very much hope to welcome you again on your next visit.

My wife (!) and I visited for a couple of nights for a short honeymoon. We live in the Bay Area, so it was just a short drive down the coast. We arrived on a Sunday night, immediately took advantage of the hot tub, and spent a wonderful Monday doing nothing but eating, drinking wine, watching soccer, and enjoying the...

We had a suite on the top floor and really enjoyed looking out at the water every day. Plenty of room to roam, good views, comfortable bed.... What more could you want? The hot tub was nice and hot, breakfasts of pastries, fresh fruit, juice and coffee were fine. Nice walking paths along the beach right outside and plenty of...

Dear KSKat, Thank you for you comments on Tripadvisor. We very much enjoyed hosting you on your Californian Trip! We are very close to more than a half dozen restaurants and shops within a 15 minute walk on the convenient Coastal Path (and we even offer up flashlights if you're out after dark). I wish you safe travels and hope...

We stayed here two nights and had a suite on the bottom floor with a patio that looked onto the ocean. We both really enjoyed sitting on the patio to read and watch the ocean. There is a large rock jetty where locals go to fish and a simple trail that goes from the hotel to the boat launch area....

Dear MrBunny, Thank you for your comments about your recent stay. We are always happy to hear guest experience! The sound of the fog horn is constant, but we refer to it as "coastal charm". Our location, however, can't be beat. We are nicely situated between town and the harbor where our guests enjoy local restaurants, shopping, and activities; and...

We stayed here for a night during our honeymoon. The hotel is beautiful when you drive up and the people at the desk are great and the views from the rooms are beautiful too. I got to the hotel really early, about 11:00 and asked them when check in was and it was 4:00. They took my number and said...

Wife and I decided on a quick weekend trip to Half Moon Bay.

This was our last stop on a two and a half week trip up the PCH from San Diego, and to be honest I wish that we had just driven straight past and onto San Fran as this place wasn't cheap and was very unexciting. We had a suite as this was the cheapest option for the four of us,...

We stayed in Carmel valley most of our vacation time and decided to spend last night at "luxury boutique" beach house. It is not luxury, not boutique as description says and it is so not relaxing in my view. There is RV camp park on a left, big restaurant on a right and hotel is on the busy road. Rooms...

My husband and I really enjoyed a quiet getaway here. Loved the breakfast, the fireplace, kitchenette, large room with view of bay (not ocean view, but quieter, calmer bay), patio with a cup of tea in morning, walks to restaurants, large hot tub and nice pool.

Dear hisons, Thank you for your comments. Just as Virginia, the Beach House is for lovers.
