Hi and welcome to our home, West Coast Villa. Don is a native of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada and Krista is from Seattle, Washington. We moved from the beautiful Northwest to the San Francisco Bay Area in 1983. It's hard to beat the Bay Area for climate and things to do. We'd be delighted to share our home with you and help you with your plans to enjoy the San Francisco Bay Area.

Don or Krista Robertson purchased this villa in 2001

We are located in the quiet, safe town of Castro Valley, just 20 miles SE of the downtown core of San Francisco.

It's really a much better location than the city because the coastal weather patterns favor the East Bay. We don't get nearly as much fog or cold winds as the city. We are more central than San Francisco for great sightseeing adventures to Napa Valley, the Redwoods, Santa Cruz, Monterey, Carmel and Pebble Beach. The home is much larger than anything you can find in San Francisco with free (and available) parking,

We are so much closer to the Theme Parks, water parks and zoo. We are surrounded by golf courses, a nearby lake and plenty of shopping opportunities including the new outlet mall in Livermore.

Here are some things you might want to do while vacationing at West Coast Villa in the heart of the San Francisco Bay Area: San Francisco - Visit Alcatraz, Fisherman's Wharf, the Golden Gate Bridge, Lombard Street, ride the cable cars and enjoy a good meal. If you are coming to a convention at the Moscone Center, Cow Palace or elsewhere, stay in the comfort of West Coast Villa. Visit Half Moon Bay, Santa Cruz, Monterey, and Carmel - stroll along white sandy beaches, enjoy clam chowder at the wharf, visit the sea lions or Monterey Bay Aquarium. Take a trip to San Jose famous as the Silicon Valley and see the strange and peculiar Winchester Mystery House. Head over the hills to Pleasanton, Dublin or San Ramon for a shopping spree, take in a movie at the IMAX theatre and a meal at many of the fine restaurants there. Do you want to go on a shopping spree? Visit the brand new outlet mall just miles away from West Coast Villa. Visiting college campuses? Check out UC Berkeley or Stanford in Palo Alto or CSU East Bay. What trip to the San Francisco Bay Area is complete without a day in the Napa Valley or Sonoma Valley checking out the vineyards and wineries. Visit the multi-million dollar Castle featured on Bedtime Stories. Take a trip to Gold Country - Sacramento, the State Capital and try your hand at panning for gold at Sutter's Mill. Castro Valley features Lake Chabot for small boating and fishing. The East Bay Regional Parks with over 1000 miles of hiking trails. Nearby enjoy family outings to the Oakland Zoo, Great America, Six Flags Discovery Kingdom (Vacaville), Six Flags Waterworld in Concord and Golden T Golfland and arcade in Castro Valley. Or take in a Major League baseball, football, basketball or hockey game.

Castro Valley Villa I

  • Submitted: Aug 10, 2008
  • Stayed: Aug 2008
The West Coast Villa was exceptional. Don and Krista were very helpful in giving advice and directions on where to go and how to go. The BART is near the Villa and we utilized it almost everyday as it was easy access and saved our group from having to take a car into the city. Don and Krista were always eager to answer any questions that we had and did everything humanly possible to make our stay a pleasant one. I would highly recommend thier Villa to anyone wanting to stay out of the hustle and bustle of the city and would like quiet evening times together. Great for families or large groups. Our entire experience gets an A+ in my book. Thank you.

Gorgeous home in a great location!

We stayed at this amazing home for 8 days in August and we couldn't have been more pleased. The house was in a great location-minutes from the Oakland Airport-and close to the highway entrance as well as 2 different lines from Bart. But at the same time, the neighborhood was quiet and our street had little traffic, not including the deer we saw running down the road as we left one morning! The home was spacious with more than enough room for the 4 families (12 people) we had staying there. The layout was fabulous with an enormous gathering area, while the bedrooms and bathrooms were secluded and private. The kitchen had 2 of each appliance which made it easy for us to prepare meals large enough for our group. The kids loved going to the beautiful backyard and picking fruit to snack on. The owners were friendly and helpful, always available but never intrusive. We have done these annual family trips all over the world for the last several years, and this was our favorite home by far. We truly loved it here!

50 year nursing class reunion

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 16, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
Our group of nursing school classmates gets together yearly, but we wanted our 50 year reunion to be VERY special. WestCoast Villa met our expectations. The house is exactly as pictured. It was spotlessley clean. 15 of us called it home for 4 days in September. Five others visited for daytime activities. It is located in an upscale neighborhood with plenty of parking. We spent much of our time gathered around the two tables in the kitchen area, feeling very much at home. The kitchen is the nicest I have seen in any vacation rental..making meal preparation a breeze. Two cook tops and two dishwashers! We even hand picked fruit from the trees in the yard. Beds were very comfortable with plenty of extra bedding if it got chilly. The owners are gracious and very accessable. They met us on arrival and gave us a full tour..even set up an extra twin mattress in the study. The master bathroom is jaw dropping beautiful.The hot tub appeared brand new. Safeway was within walking distance. Access to the freeway was easy. It was a short drive to the Bay Bridge and over to San Francisco for Beach Blanket Babylon. On another day we took the ferry from Jack London Square ( a half hour away) right to the stadium for a Giants game. There is also a large shopping outlet just a few minutes away. This home is so large, lovely and welcoming that we were happy to return home every time we ventured out. I have rented several vacation homes in at least 3 states and this one is the winner!

Home was clean and in great condition. We were not disappointed. Our family enjoyed the
spacious home with plenty of places for everyone. The location was great for our daily side trips
and trips to the City-easy to access the freeways! The owners were there to greet us and answer
any questions which was most helpful! We would certainly rent again and recommend this home to our friends!

We visited the West Coast in February with my family and two more families. 20 in total. 6 adults and 14 children between 20 and 4 years old. Was a fantastic experience. We felt at home. The house is very comfortable with everything you need. We stayed there for 10 days and from there we visited all the attractions of the Bay Area and other places like Stanford, etc. The location is very good and strategic.
The neighborhood is very quiet, with many services in the area, including supermarkets, pharmacies, etc., and we definitely recommend West Coast Villa.
We really appreciate the hospitality of the owners, Don and his wife! We really hope to return again in the future..

Family Trip 2012

This property was above and beyond everthing I could have ever expected in a vacation house. Our family of seven stayed here and all had separate bedrooms and bathrooms. The living areas were large enough for meals together, planning our days in San Francisco, and doing our big puzzle on a table. The information given to us before and during the trip by our guest made our stay in Castro Valley so much easier. The house was maintained very well and the kitchen stocked for every cooking need you have. Easy to get there from airport, and close to BART system. Our guest was on hand to help us with questions on house, directions, and good local places to eat. I would highly recommend this house for large families. I was very glad the pictures matched the house. We would stay again if in the area.

Guam Family Reunion At West Coast Villa

  • Submitted: Feb 18, 2010

Christmas / New Years Family Reunion
From East Coast, West Coast, Guam
Don & Krista, Your house worked wonders for our reunion - the main house (Villa I) as a center of activity and the smaller house (Villa II) as a safe haven for after dinner silence. Your landscaping was the first thing I noticed and made all the difference in the world. The roses, the hibiscus, and the healthy fruit-bearing trees made the entire week feel abundant....I especially enjoyed your attention to detail (ex. the shampoo matching the bathrooms, the faux flowers and large painting). This is one family that will never stay in a hotel again after such a wonderful experience. I hope that the laughs and memories that my family leaves in this place fill you with a sense of secondary warmth. Thank you so much!

A group of 15 lawn bowlers found the property exactly as described: gorgeous, clean, and accommodating. Seven days of commuting to Oakland, Walnut Creek, and/or Golden Gate Park for lawn bowling competition, the property was ideally located just off I-580. The owners were most hospitable.
