We had a wonderful Thanksgiving and wedding here!
Back in July, my fiance (now husband) and I were surveying VRBO properties near Pacifica that could host our families for a long weekend stay (Thanksgiving plus our wedding during the weekend). Thankfully, we ran across this property and were elated to hear that the owner's daughter had her wedding here. (The owner was nice and easy to reach). We were told that the large yard (seen in the picture) is actually the neighbors property but that the backyard could hold a small wedding. When we at last arrived, we very happy with the accommodations. The house had a very cozy feel to it, the beds were comfy, and the surrounding area was quiet, beautiful and well-suited for walks. The kitchen had lots of the items we needed to serve a meal, but in some instances forgot to bring: tons of dishes, silverware, can openers, large bowls for serving, cutting boards, pans for baking things on, plastic wrap and some items like spices and tea, etc. One downside was that although closets had a lot of things needed like towels and extra bedding, there wasn't a lot of room (if any, depending on the room) for hanging clothes. Also, the "separate unit" advertised is physically part of the house (it's upstairs), and it has its own private entrance from the downstairs.
Additional notes if you are going to hold a wedding here: The back yard of this place is actually a wood floor patio/deck and around the corner from the deck is a long, narrow strip of backyard, half grass half wooded flooring. We found that the patio area could hold ~30 people comfortably, but probably not more. We were able to fit three tables in the common area of the house, which with the large dinner table seen in the pictures, allowed seating for the same amount of people. A Saturday afternoon may not have been the best choice for an outdoor wedding... there was a plane that flew overhead about every 3 minutes (due to the nearby airport) which caused noise that required the wedding speakers to take long pauses. But overall, everyone present commented on how "homey" the wedding felt... some called it the most delightful wedding they've been ever been to.
