About Don or Krista Robertson

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

Why Don or Krista Robertson chose The Bay Area

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.

What makes this villa unique

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.

Wonderful stay in the Bay area!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property as a party of 12 people (two families and two couples) in July 2016. The house is very spacious and well-maintained, and fully met our expectations based upon the description. It is fully equipped to handle much larger parties than ours and is large enough to offer everyone a degree of privacy as well. It is situated in a quiet and nice neighborhood, with all necessary services nearby, and is only a few minutes’ drive from the Castro Valley BART station. We were met by Don at the beginning our stay, and he and Krista happily answered all our questions and provided lots of good advice and assistance during our stay. We really appreciated their commitment to their guests and the property!

In summary, this is a very well-maintained property offered by a very friendly couple, and we would not hesitate to recommend it to others!

07/07/2016 A Nice Family Vacation in the Bay Area

  • 5 of 5

We, a group of two couples and two families of 4 persons each, rented the Villa for a week in July 2016. The house could obviously accommodate more than the 12 of us, but it was ideal for our needs, as we wanted to have some privacy for everyone.

The process of first enquiry, reservation, making the contract and payments went very smoothly and professionally. Don and Krista offered friendly assistance both before our arrival and during our stay. Don welcomed us when we arrived and introduced the house to us. The day before our arrival he even offered us to check in early.

The house corresponded with its description, it was in immaculate condition and fully met our high expectations. The house is located in a nice, quiet area, close to all necessary services. We appreciated especially the short drive to the BART train station, as we used the BART train several times for our trips to San Francisco.

We can honestly recommend the Villa to those who want to rent a nice, well maintained quality house.

Fabulous villa for corporate training

  • 5 of 5

Our staff came from different locations of the country and has a wonderful stay at West Coast Villa. We booked the five bedroom villa and there were plenty of beds for each person and great open spaces for all of us to gather together. The large kitchen was well stocked for all our needs and made meal preparations a breeze. We have been here before and always enjoy our return visits. Don and Krista are great hosts. The new hot tub was a great addition and enjoyed by all after our busy day.

Wedding Event

  • 5 of 5

My guests from Ontario, Canada were awed by the beauty and splendor of the villa. The property location was perfect that my guests were able to visit many tourist attractions in the Bay Area. The property owners, Don and Krista, were very friendly and kindhearted. My sister and her family (my guests) had an unforgettable sojourn at this villa in Castro Valley, California.

70th Birthday Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The vacation home was lovely and clean. Directions to the property were very clear. All the amenities plus many extras were provided. We were able to take in most of the many attractions that the Bay area boasts and travelling by Bart (light rapid transit) made that easy. The owners were extremely pleasant and helpful. It was a wonderful experience.

There were 6 of us that rented the house for a study group meeting. There were plenty of bedrooms, as well as tables for us to have our meetins. The kitchen was huge, we cooked our meals at the house. Fantastic location as well.
