Half Moon Village is the result of a tremendous vision held by the City of Half Moon Bay and the County of San Mateo to transform an underutilized site into an innovative community for seniors. A strikingly beautiful apartment community, Half Moon Village provides 160 rental homes affordable to low-income seniors in the nation’s most expensive rental housing market. Residents of the six-acre coastal Half Moon Village enjoy bright apartments (some with views of the Pacific Ocean), a tree-lined pedestrian walkway, several community gardens, a bocce ball court, heated outdoor patios, outdoor sculptures, a fitness center, computer lounge and community rooms for activities and gatherings. Half Moon Village provides a model for best practices in providing quality affordable housing for the growing population of seniors in the United States.
An integral component of an extended Half Moon Bay Senior Campus, Half Moon Village residents have access to high-quality health and social services that provide a continuum of care so they can successfully age in place. The innovative 10 acre Senior Campus includes an additional 104 affordable homes, an Adult Day Health Center and a Senior Community Center and is just steps away from downtown Half Moon Bay and community amenities including a public library, supermarket and pharmacy. With two SamTrans bus lines within 1,500 feet of their apartments; senior residents have easy access to downtown as well as many other parts of the San Francisco Bay Area.
