Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Grace and Bob,

Many thanks for providing us the opportunity to stay at your estate and we enjoyed staying at your place and we absolutely enjoyed it. We also enjoyed San Francisco.

We miss the tennis court too. It was a beautiful private court and Natalie got some very good practice playing on your court that should help her in her preparation for the tournaments during this summer. I loved the plants, the statues and the arrangement of all things put together and it was a perfect setting,

Wonderful visit in the San Francisco area

  • 5 of 5

We were in town to visit our Son, who was temporarily living in downtown San Francisco. Bob and Grace's villa was wonderful. We were very comfortable and had everything we needed. The villa is as presented in the photos with the bathroom being particularly nice. The kitchen was nicely stocked for preparing evening meals and we twice used the nice outdoor gas grill. Bob welcomed us upon arrival and made sure we were comfortable with all of the mechanics; door look, heat, etc. of the villa. We conversed several times with Grace throughout the week and felt very much welcomed. They had even put out some Christmas decorations in the villa as we were there over the holiday.

It was comforting knowing that Bob and Grace were right on the property should we have needed anything. The property is very nice and very secure. While there have been prior comments on the proximity to the airport we were not bothered at all by any noise from overhead airplanes. The location south of the city was just about 25 minutes from downtown and we experienced no problems going in and out of the city. We would most certainly stay with Bob and Grace again should our travels bring us to San Francisco and without hesitation recommend their villa to others.

Enjoyable property for weeklong visit

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for a week while visiting our two sons who live in the area. It was our granddaughter's first birthday. The location was an easy ten minute drive from the airport. There is a Walgreens within walking distance for all sorts of miscellaneous items and a large grocery store just a short drive away. The apartment was perfect for the two of us. It felt pretty private overall and the size was great. The kitchen is nicely sized and stocked and worked well for casual breakfasts as well as for more involved cooking of a couple of family dinners. The noise from the planes overhead is pretty much all of the time but was only really bothersome the few times when it was in the middle of the night.

Beautiful Home and Wondeful Host

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was just what we needed for a family of four. The pictures on the site do it no justice, just a beautiful property. My kids and husband enjoyed the tennis court and basketball court every morning. Bob and Grace were so kind to us and made sure we had everything we needed. We would definitely stay here again.

It is beautiful! Such a wonderful use of space!

  • 5 of 5

I am a travel nurse that stayed here for 3 months. It was beautiful and private and Bob and Grace were very welcoming. It was a beautiful home away from home. Sometimes the airport noise is a little intense but is short lived and doesn't interfere with sleep. The property is very conveniently located to everything. I would highly recommend!

Centralized, Clean, Easy, & Worth it!

  • 5 of 5

Bob & Grace were awesome, and the setup they have is perfect. Our family of 4 had zero issues staying here 4 nights. It was peaceful, super clean, beautiful and it's gated.

Although we never took him up on it, Bob made it very clear he can help us anytime during our stay.

Thank you, we'll look this place up again should we return to SF.

Awesome, beautiful and comfortable stay!!!

  • 4 of 5

When we drove up to the property and through the gates we were amazed how beautiful the property was in person. Definitely like the pictures showed and more, felt like we were in another world!!! It is in a convenient location from the airport, minutes away. We did hear jets fly over occasionally, but not enough to disturb our sleep or be annoying. Close to all major highways to get to our destinations easily. The apartment was clean and well maintained, very comfortable. We had an 8 day stay. We had 4 adults and had more than enough room for when were relaxing between and after our adventures!!! When we needed clean towels, just called downstairs to the owners and received new ones. The owners, Bob and Grace were gracious and more than accommodating. They gave us information and tips on places to eat, things to do etc. We had a wonderful evening with them on our last night, with wine, hors d'oeuvres and conversation, getting to know them. The price was reasonable considering we had 2 bedrooms and a full kitchen, so we could cook and eat some meals at home, and comfortable living room area, compared to a hotel room. It was pretty cool when we were there so we did not use the outdoor amenities, but what they had available was good. We would definitely recommend this property to others. The only thing that would make it a little more convenient, for a long stay would be access to a washer/dryer on the premises. We did go to a Laundromat that was a few blocks away, so that worked. All in all a good experience.

Owner's Response: We've looked into the washer/dryer issue but have not been able to figure out a place for them within the apartment. We do offer the use of our washer/dryer to guests who stay longer than 10 days.
