A feast for the senses

What a wonderful place. The home is very comfortable and the view of the bay and the lights of SF at night from the large front windows is just breathtaking. The terrace was sunny for most of the day with lovely reclining chairs and the scent from the surrounding plants and trees was like nothing I've ever experienced. It's all a feast for the senses and makes for a wonderful retreat.
I do agree with another visitor who said it's best to approach the house for the first time in daylight as finding it and parking in the driveway can be a bit tricky at first. I was there alone for most of my 10-day stay, exploring the surrounding area by car during the day and enjoying the house in the late afternoons/evenings.
When I travel, I like to be within walking distance of restaurants for dinner, and evening activities. Though there are hidden stairways leading down to the town, they're quite steep and long, and it's a mile then from the stairs to the nearest restaurants so I had to use the car at night. But, except for that detail, it was a lovely apartment that felt like a very private house. I'd highly recommend it.
