We stayed in Ben's studio for a weekend away and stayed 2 nights. It was perfect. Communication with him was easy and via cell phone and paypal. I had no problems nor communications problems. This studio was perfect for the weekend but would also work well for a week visit too as there is ample kitchen supplies and lots of space. I picked this location as it was centrally located. We spent Friday in Napa valley, which was 30 minutes away and then Saturday on Angel Island, leaving from Tiberon, which is 20 minutes away. It really is close to everything you would need in the Bay area and surrounding areas. The hot tub was WONDERFUL and heated to a perfect temperature. I never saw the owner, which was fine as we were in and out and there for privacy and quiet...which we got. The ceiling over the bed has a skylight, which we loved and everything was very CLEAN and IMMACULATE.
It is in a quiet residential neighborhood and the large tv had extended cable channels and free wifi was available. We didn't use it as we had our smart phones that gave us full internet access. We walked to the mall area for dinner, which took about 8 minutes and was 0.2 miles away (perfect with lots of choices). A Safeway, Starbucks, Peets, and Walgreens are located there also...so very close and convenient. He provided 2 different coffee pots with matching filters, depending on which you prefer. There was a nice gas stove with an oven and a full sized refridgerator.
Again, perfect for our needs. My only suggestions would be additional towels as we only had one set and mine got wet from the hot tub and I had to use it to towel off after my shower later and a dust pan. I found a broom, but needed the dust pan as the leaves tracked in from hot tub to studio, so I couldn't sweep up my mess. Otherwise, excellent value and perfect weekend away! Thank you so much for sharing your studio with us!
I would definitely stay again and would highly recommend it!
My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights while visiting San Fran. It was in a great location as we spent time in San Fran, Monterey, Napa, and Sonoma. Grocery store, coffee shops, and great little restaurants were within walking distance or a very short drive. The apartment was very clean and tidy. The bed was comfy and the amenities were well kept up. We used the grill multiple evenings, and the hot tub every day. The wireless was fast as well. We did lose our hot water one morning, but the owner was contacted, very apologetic, and had the issue resolved within a few hours by the time we returned home in the early afternoon. We felt that the privacy was great as well, surrounded in the front by a tall fence and trees and very quiet at all times of the day. This was a very nice little place to stay, especially for the reasonable price!!
Thank you Ben for a wonderful place. It's 30' drive to San Francisco and only 5' away from the closest ferry which will take you straight to the center of SF. The place is very clean. Bathroom and kitchen are well equipped with everything we needed for our week there. The bed was comfortable. This studio is detached from the house so you will have your complete privacy. You can come and leave any time. Hot tub is a big plus. Internet was fast; my husband was able to work from there during the day. There are so many amazing restaurants within 5-10' drive. We both enjoyed our stay at Ben's place very much. Highly recommend this rental to everyone.
Great communication with owner, prompt e-mail answers and easy phone contacts. And after that you got your privacy. The studio is clean and has all the basic stuff in the bathroom and the kitchen. The patio outside is small but worth its weight in gold, especially for the dog who loves to lie outside (not in December tho), checking out the fat squirrels playing in the tree. The neighborhood is quiet,with a small park nearby for urgent business and its only a short ride for some leashfree walking. It is conveniently located, close enough to San Rafael to get picked up by the car rental agencies if need be and there is a huge shopping center and mall a block away with everything and more.
It is my 4th stay and I will definitely stay here again when I come over from Switzerland on my way to Northern California.
This property was very close to the music event we attended at Terrapin Crossroads. The property itself was neat and tidy, not overly fancy or too extreme. It suited our needs as it was sort of tucked away, provided privacy, and we really weren't there that much. The hot tub was an added bonus and made for a very relaxing evening after the show.
The owner was easy to reach by phone and email. Everything was clean and comfortable. Overall I would recommend this property.
This was our first experience with VRBO's and we were very pleased. The space is very nice for 2 people and has everything provided. The towels and bath are very nice as is the bed. I found it tastefully decorated as well. We brought two small dogs and for their first travel adventure, they were very comfortable. Access to this place is easy as well. It has easy access to the freeway, and lots of stores in walking distance. And although part of a neigborhood, it feels private and secluded. I would definitely stay here again.
