About Dina Santos
I was born in Europe, grew up in New England, moved to California in 1978. Since moving to California, I have worked in Property Management and Hospitality related fields, event planing... I am now a proud grandmother and love spending time with them in Benicia whenever possible. I love being accommodating to others.
Why Dina Santos chose Benicia
Clean, comfortable, quiet, relaxing gardens, BBQ in the courtyard. Location, charm, restful place, lots to do, close to restaurants, cafes, shopping, banking.... all within walking distance.
What makes this Cottage unique
City of Benicia caterers to it's residents and is always coming up with new activity down First St and water front. The library, pool and tennis court is one block away. I HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT BENICIA IS A HIDDEN GEM. NOT ONLY A WAY POINT BUT ALSO A DESTINATION LOCATION AS WELL.

Could have used air conditioner as. 3 nights were very warm. Ants in bed Thursday and Friday nights. Only a few on Thursday but a dead small insect under the top sheet at the foot of the bed was the source of about
40 ants. After killing them no more seen. We thoroughly enjoy
The intimacy of the little cottage.
Thanks so much
A Quiet and Peaceful Place to Stay
The unit is very well equipped. The kitchen was a joy to cook in as they had provided every kind of seasoning, sauce, and condiment.. Appliances were high end. The cable streaming was excellent. Internet was excellent. The outdoor patio was spacious and comfortable to sit in, though very hot in the afternoons. The bathroom provided a comfortable place to bathe. The unit is not airconditioned and so there were days that were quite warm inside. They did provide fans and that helped. My main complaint would be the mattress. It was a spongy mat over a mattress. It was not very comfortable. And should be updated.
Dina, my host, was extremely friendly and helpful.
Great location, central to the things we did
Quiet location with the comforts of home. Dina was gracious and very helpful
Beautiful, creatively-cultured cottage with everything one could need to feel at home! Great location in quiet Benicia with local shops, a great tennis court, and more. Dina was a fantastic and responsive hostess. Hope to visit again!
Great little cottage in an excellent spot in wonderful Benecia
Dina was very responsive and welcoming for my stay in Benecia. Her cottage was very well equipped and right across from the Police station, so very safe. Also, it was only 2 short blocks to downtown Benecia with all their restaurants. Perfect!
Don’t hesitate to stay here.
Comforting and relaxing.
Dina is the best! She is kind and considerate. She goes out of her way to make sure that each traveler has what they need. The well-equipped cottage is cozy, comforting, quiet, and safe. With a sweet garden in front, it’s delightful to sit outside in the mornings and the evenings and feel the breezes come through.
Everything is in walking distance. I hardly used my car while I was there. The restaurants and art galleries of First Street are just minutes away on foot. The Farmer’s Market and the beautiful trails along the water are also just steps away. Benicia is convenient to SF, Napa, Sacramento and Berkeley.
This is indeed a choice spot in the Bay Area.
Thank you so much Ann for staying at my cottage. It was a pleasure meeting you and your pet Toby. You are welcome back any time.
