Close to Coastal Trail
We loved the proximity of Dennis and Cynthia's property for biking the Coastal Trail and visiting Half Moon Bay State Beach, and we appreciated being able to leave our van in a safe place while we explored. For remote workers, AT&T cell service was worthless on Sunday, July 7th following 4th of July when everyone was traveling home. It seemed like the network was getting bogged down. However, Starlink worked great.

#2 HMB Highway Overnight Rest Area
Convenient but smelly
Overall we made the best of it. The location was convenient as we had family staying at a nearby hotel. But the site has a port-a-potty situated directly next to the designated parking areas and the smell of the chemicals was bad enough to wake us up in the middle of the night. We had flagged this to the owner immediately upon arrival, because you could smell it as soon as you drive in, but she was dismissive.

We were well taken care of and enjoyed our stay! Great spot just off of one a five minute drive from the main street and a short walk to the beach.

The view is beautiful. The camp site is alone. Although very close to highway 1, so somewhat noisy. We had a nice hike, nice dinner, nice campfire.

Comms issues with hosts (1st timer)
Very much likely it is due to the fact that this is my first time using this platform, but I had a very hard time contacting the hosts. That provoked that I got there very late after looking around the neighborhood for quite a while. I had to spend the night at a hotel nearby and I ended up not using the place.

Great camp spot for the night
I wound up staying 2 nights as I arrived to my destination 2 days early. I got my minivan down in there no problem. It's clean and fairly private. Right down the hwy from Cameron's and all the beautiful beaches. I really liked this spot and would definitely recommend it.
