West Coast Vacation Rental Road Trip ~ Half Moon Bay

Half Moon Bay

We’re in Half Moon Bay for the next stop of the Vacation Rental Road Trip! Half Moon Bay is located about an hour south of San Francisco and is known for its cool overcast climate, outdoor activities, and upscale restaurants.

As you make your way through our West Coast Road Trip itinerary, rejuvenate and recharge along the way  in a luxury vacation rental! Not only will you be extremely comfortable, you’ll be saving money if you book your vacation rental direct with the property manager. Booking with the property manager is the best way to ensure that you’ll get the best rates and no travelers fees at vacation rentals across the West Coast and beyond.

When you book vacation rentals on listing sites like Airbnb, VRBO, Homeaway and Flipkey, you are getting charged hundreds to thousand of dollars extra in service fees, where you could be getting the same vacation rental at a much lower rate when you book direct.
