Rubina and Kiran's home was perfect for introducing my and my new wife's families to one another over our wedding weekend. The space was open, luxurious, and deeply relaxing. The views, incredible. The artwork, stunning, authentic.
The amazing pictures on VRBO initially suggested to me a bit of embellishment. It turned out, however, that they were totally representative. Sweeping views of the bay. Floor-to-ceiling windows. Precision-controlled blinds. Expansive common spaces. Comfort for sitting, dining, toasting, relaxing. Huge kitchen island for preparing dinner and drinks. Beautiful artwork. Four exceptionally cozy and private rooms, including a stately master bedroom/bath... If you're looking for true decadence, this place is for you.
A quick reality check. The rental market is extremely thin in inventory accommodating 12 people. Couple that with this place's extraordinary distinction and it's more of a seller's/lessor's market. Two things naturally follow: price and scrutiny. So, as you would do if it were your place alongside your neighbors, expect Rubina and Kiran to get to know you, understand your intent, and specify such things as parking, noise, and headcount expectations. Throughout our experience, however--from exploration to deposit to stay to check-out--both were extremely warm and welcoming, showing they cared a great deal about our having a fabulous weekend.
