Convenient location

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 4 with 2 elementary age children stayed here for several nights while visiting San Francisco. The unit met our needs and we loved being close to the BART station, just a short drive away. The space is as shown and the owner was very responsive with correspondence and helpful all around.

What a wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The condo adequately sleeps four between the master bed and a fold out sofa in the living room. Both are remarkably comfortable, especially the mattress in the master bedroom. I stayed here with my boyfriend, so there was just two of us but we could have easily slept two others.

The condo as a whole is very cute and clean, with detail paid to real living needs. The place is extremely livable and comfortable. In addition to books and magazines, the condo is stocked with DVDs and even a Nintendo Wii with many different games to play. Also, the kitchen came equipped with everything we needed to prepare meals, such as pots,pans,plates,silverware, etc. Closet/storage space was more than enough for our luggage and personal items. The condo is also placed far from the street behind another home so it was quiet all day and night, with lots of privacy.

Our favorite thing about staying here was how close it was to San Francisco while feeling like it was also isolated from the city. It was about 15 minutes driving time to get to the center of San Francisco and it also felt like we were staying in one of the many small beach towns up and down the Northern California coast. The condo is located right off the freeway, making traveling to surrounding areas very easy.

I would absolutely recommend this property to friends and family, and look forward to staying here in the future.

Brilliant

  • 5 of 5

Clean, safe, private and a location that makes everything in the San Francisco Bay Area so easily accessed without the traffic and high priced parking issues of the City...welcoming for both dogs and people. Have travelled throughout much of the US and Europe, so I can safely say this is truly a great spot.

Perfect Home Base for Peninsula House Hunting

  • 5 of 5

My partner Marc (50 y/o man), our 3 y/o dog Brody (75 lbs., golden retriever / German shepherd mutt) and I (40 y/o woman) stayed at Ben's delightful Pacifica cottage while house hunting on the Peninsula. I am transferring my job from Sacramento to South San Francisco Fall 2014. We appreciated the private off street parking space. There's a walk way to a wooden gate that locks (very important to keep Brody in the yard). Brody enjoyed the grassy yard and the special dog treats that Ben provided! We brought a dog bed and extra towels, and we appreciated the extra dog blankets and towels that we used indoors. The bed was comfortable and the cottage was quiet. We weren't worried about bothering anyone (Brody sometimes barks), and we enjoyed extreme privacy, as the cottage is away from a quiet street behind the main house. Ben's instructions / maps were accurate and extremely useful. Ben was responsive by email when we needed a bit of help accessing WiFi. Ben also provided his phone number. The place was immaculately clean and freshly remodeled. I loved the hot shower (nice wide shower head mimics falling rain) after a long day of sight seeing and house hunting. Great central location, we could have walked to the block where we met our realtor (we needed our car to see other houses, so we drove). Brody loved Pacifica Beach where we saw surfers, walkers, and other dogs on leash. We didn't watch TV but noticed DVD's and a Roku Box. Internet worked well. We brought groceries and cooked in the well-appointed kitchen, no need to eat in restaurants. Kitchen utensils / dish rack / pots & pans / applicances (toaster oven, microwave) all seemed brand new. We brought over a friend who lives in Pacifica, and he remarked that the cottage was perfect for our needs. The three of us shared lunch at the table in the eat-in kitchen. Marc (night owl) sat in the living room at night, reviewing the houses we had visited while I slept. Weather was perfect, sunny, not cold. Heater worked fine, we didn't use it much. Typical day: Walk dog along beach, see a few houses, return to cottage for lunch, see more houses. We would definitely return if we need to schedule another house hunting weekend. If we end up in Pacifica, we look forward to having Ben as a potential neighbor! Thank you so much!
