Why Don or Krista Robertson chose The Bay Area

Castro Valley is probably the best location in the San Francisco Bay Area as far as weather is concerned. It is also one of the most convenient locations for all of your travel plans including easy trips to San Francisco, Silicon Valley, Napa or Sonoma Wine Tours or any number of Theme Parks in the area. Location, location, location. You can walk to the grocery store. we're super close to shopping areas, parks, theme parks, hiking trails, outlet malls, groceries and with easy freeway access you can get anywhere in the Bay Area quickly. Enjoy the fabulous comfort of a luxury home. We really enjoy living in Castro Valley because it offers many advantages over the city of San Francisco. Here's why. San Francisco is often clouded over in a thick fog. Castro Valley enjoys far more clear skies and warm sunshine. Parking is a major problem at most San Francisco properties. It's never a problem at West Coast Villa - and it's FREE! Most guests only spend a couple of days in San Francisco then travel to the surrounding areas for sightseeing. Look at a map and you will find that we are in the center of all of the sightseeing activities and freeway access is much easier from our location than fighting the bridges of San Francisco every day. We are three blocks away from freeway access. Don't misunderstand. You'll still want to go to San Francisco and enjoy the sights and attractions. Average time in San Francisco for our guests over the last six years? 2 days. The rest of the time most of our guests visit places like Napa Valley, Sonoma Valley, Monterey, Carmel, Santa Cruz, San Jose, Livermore, Pleasanton and even Yosemite National Park. And for that West Coast Villas location is absolutely ideal. If your goal is to see the entire San Francisco Bay Area, West Coast Villa is the place to be. Get out of the San Francisco fog and enjoy this gorgeous vacation rental home.

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 Premium 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.

Sensational

  • 5 of 5

The villa was amazing. Excellent location, quiet neighborhood, and near tourist areas. I would definitely stay here again. It's has a "home away from home" feel.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to review your recent stay at our 3 bedroom West Coast Villa. We're glad you enjoyed your stay. We are really central to most of the major tourist attractions in the San Francisco Bay Area and being just 3 blocks from the I-580 freeway makes getting there a lot easier. We're so glad you chose to stay at our home and we welcome you back again if you're in the area again.

Car: recommended

We're just 2 blocks from 24 / 7 Safeway grocery store; 3 blocks from the I-580 freeway that takes you all over the San Francisco Bay Area. It is a great location for day trips to Napa Valley, Monterey, Carmel, Santa Cruz, Half Moon Bay, Muir Woods, San Francisco, Silicon Valley, San Jose, Livermore Premium Outlet Stores, Wine Tours, and even a trip to Yosemite (a bit long, but some guests venture that far from here).

There are a number of theme parks in the area including Six Flags, Waterworld, Great America, and other day adventures such as the Winchester Mystery House. And of course, most guests want to take in Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Exploratorium, the Academy of Science and Monterey Bay Aquarium.
