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 Castro Valley

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.

Exceptional Rental!

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this property. We only had 8 in our group all together and I know this house can accommodate up to 21 but what worked out so nice is we were two different families who barely knew each other. We both had our own floors with beautiful bedroom suites and lots of bathrooms. The other family was very grateful to be provided such beautiful space. Since our children will be getting married in the near future it was the perfect space to get to know each other. The kitchen had everything you could ask for and we cooked breakfast every morning. When we sat to eat the view of the yard with several fruit trees was a wonderful way to start our day. We also walked the two blocks to the Safeway several times a day for this and that. We really loved that convenience. Two of the three nights we all enjoyed the hot tub after spending the days at various outings. At night we would all sit around the big table and play games. Stunning home with everything luxury enabling a wonderful stay.

Our experience here was really enjoyable. We loved the freedom we had to go about our day and we're really impressed with the set up we had. There were a total of 8 of us at the home for most of the time. We three girls had a room that was a perfect size with a lovely big bathroom and walk in wardrobe - perfect for 3 girls. We will be recommending the Villa. It was very clean!

Wonderful West Coast Villa

  • 5 of 5

We were part of a party of 12 (two families and two couples) that rented this property for a week in July 2016. Everything about the Villa was perfect for us! There was plenty of space both in the common areas and in the comfortable bedrooms, and the kitchen was both spacious enough and well equipped to handle cooking for the entire group. The hot-tub was also highly appreciated, especially by the children. The patio was a wonderful place to sit down and relax after a long day of sightseeing, and the various flowers and fruit trees on the yard were beautiful and well kept.

The neighborhood was quiet and calm but still conveniently close to both freeway access and the Castro Valley BART station. The closest grocerie store was just a block away and was well-stocked.

In addition to obviously knowing how to take care of their property, the owners Don and Krista also know how to take care of their guests. They were very friendly and helpful and made us feel most welcome during our visit, and also gave some great advice for our continued trip down the coast.

We truly enjoyed our stay - The Villa definitely delivers what is promised in the description and photos! We highly recommend it!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. We're glad you enjoyed the Villa and the community. A relaxing end to the day is to lounge in the hot tub and unwind. We also love the quiet neighborhood and the convenient access to the freeway, shopping, BART and the major sites of the Bay Area. We hope to see you again in the future.

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!
