OUR LITTLE PIECE of HEAVEN:A Landmark Building, near Mavericks Big Wave Beach, a short 3 block walk or bike ride to Pillar Point Harbor Marina Sea Food & Shops! The local yacht club is a few doors down, and there are boat and equipment rentals close by. Amazing hiking on the pillar point bluff to hidden beaches, wildlife & Birdwatching.Princeton by the Sea, where the property is located, about 9 square blocks in size, was the original center for crab & general commercial fishing in the Bay Area, and still is mostly Boat repair, crab trap storage, the Yacht Club, boat rentals, and other marine related businesses or local artists. There is no commercial manufacturing allowed, and generally businesses must be marine or art related, like my gallery. Basically Pillar Point is a working Harbor, with a few artists & craftspeople in residence. The "Romeo Pier" in front of our property was the unloading point for fisherman's catch since the early 1800s.
Many of the "crabbers" have gone, and the community is slowly turning back into the small creative enterprise, private residence & artist colony, that it was back in the 1920's through the 1960's, when many famous artists and musicians lived in the old warehouses. We are continually working to beautify the old buildings & general area, particularly the 3 blocks of beach road between the Harbor Marina, and West Point Beach where we are located; so that hopefully soon, there won't be as much of a contrast between the two areas, without having Princeton be "touristy" like the Marina. Sometimes it's interesting to get out of your normal environment, and experience something completely different, and that is why I was so taken with the property. Also it is the closest building to Mavericks Big Wave surfing beach, which to surfing enthusiasts is what a cozy chalet at the foot of Mt Everest would be to avid climbers. We have a lot of water sports and fishing activity in the harbor, as well as wonderful hiking on the Point & bird watching at the estuary across the street.GETTING AROUND: Marina is a just 3 blocks walk, or take the bikes! There is a new bike path that goes all the way down the coast to Half Moon Bay, about 3 miles south.
Our vacation rentals are located in a landmark building, noted for it's unusual architectural style. Situated at the far west end of Princeton by the Sea, the closest private building to Pillar Point and the Mavericks Big Wave Surfing competition. The beach is virtually right outside the door! Princeton is a quaint Harbor & Marina where the local fishermen sell their catch right off the boats every day. The marina has quite a few good restaurants, and is about 3 blocks from our location. It's scenic walk or bike ride over, past boat yards, and crab traps, the yacht club, and a few stray cats. On the far side is a new mini shopping mall that offers books, ice cream coffee, postcards, some beach wear, souvenirs, etc.. The town of Half Moon Bay is about 4 miles south, and has a wonderful main street with additional shopping, great bakeries, and art galleries. San Francisco is about 20 miles north along the gorgeous coastline, through our new Devil's Slide tunnel.
