A recent guest wrote, 'We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your gorgeous home! Everything was absolutely perfect from the moment we arrived to our departure. You have thought of everything to make our stay comfortable. It was truly home away from home. Thank you so much.' AA, Michigan

We have hosted sports figures, political leaders, corporate travelers, film crews, sports teams, and families just like yours.

Gather the clan and stay together at West Coast Villa.

West Coast Villa is located in Castro Valley, in the San Francisco Bay Area. This is a perfect location for all of your sightseeing activities. This vacation rental home is nestled in the a quiet, upscale residential neighborhood. The home has great views of the town of Castro Valley, the surrounding hills and partial views of the San Francisco Bay. We are located just two blocks from a shopping area including a grocery store (Supermarket and Deli), restaurants, fitness facility, Bank, and Coffee Shop. You will also find Costco, Trader Joe's and other stores nearby.

Check it out for yourself. Most San Francisco properties are much older. West Coast Villa underwent extensive remodeling and a large addition in 2005 conforming to all current building and safety codes. Each year we set aside time to upgrade features of the house and gardens. West Coast Villa consists of two attached homes to allow for absolute privacy, yet large enough for group interaction.

We offer 3 rental options for this house.

1. You can rent the entire home as an 8 bedroom estate. This option sleeps a maximum of 23 guests.

2. You can rent just the 5 bedroom, 4 bath home called Villa I. Villa I sleeps up to 17 guests.

3. You can rent just the 3 bedroom, 3 bath home called Villa II. This option sleeps up to 6 guests.

Our pricing is fair and based on the number of nights and the number of guests you have.

The pricing is, of course, lower if you choose option 2 or 3.

As a recent guest wrote, 'Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Your home is beautiful, your hospitality so warm and inviting. We enjoyed our visit. This was definitely 5 star!'

We have hosted over 4000 guests from more than 40 countries in this San Francisco Vacation Rental home.

We want to extend to you that same warm and inviting hospitality. It is our goal to make your stay as pleasant and comfortable as possible.

Your hosts,

Don & Krista Robertson

About Don or Krista Robertson

Hi, we're Don and Krista Robertson, owners of West Coast Villa, our San Francisco Bay Area vacation rental home. We'd love to host you and your family or group at one of our villas. Whether you are traveling with six or need space for 23, we've got you covered and will treat you like family at our vacation homes. We love the area and are available to help you plan a memorable trip to the Bay Area. Or if you are coming as a wedding party, we've got room for the family of the bride, or the family of the groom. Do you need help with your sightseeing plans - just ask and we can help you plan out a trip of a lifetime.

Don or Krista Robertson purchased this villa in 2001

Why Don or Krista Robertson chose The Bay Area

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 spent in San Francisco for our guests over the last three 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 West Coast Villa's location is absolutely ideal. If your goal is to see the entire San Francisco Bay Area, West Coast Villa is the place to call home. 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.

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.

Visiting college campuses? Check out Cal State University at Berkeley or Stanford in Palo Alto.

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.

Wow! What An Amazing House! What An Awesome Experience!

  • 5 of 5

The family of the groom stayed here. The wedding was held off site but the Villa was an amazing place for all the preparations for the wedding, out of town guests from the East Coast and from overseas. The hosts allow for some events at an additional fee, but it is quite reasonable compared to other venues. They even have caterers and daily housekeeping if needed. They have thought through how to take care of guests and provide staff and services on an as needed basis. The great thing is that we were up front with our needs and they were able to price out all the extras we needed. And then we could pick and choose what we wanted to do that fit within our budget. Awesome to work with them. The house was ready for us when we arrived and very clean. They are pros!

Special School Trip

  • 5 of 5

Don and Krista - the Owners are extremely special people. I booked for a party of 24 special needs pupils from the UK to stay at the Villa. Don was so accommodating to every question and email I sent. Nothing was too much trouble and he replied and sorted everything I asked of him straight away. The house was beautiful, equipped really well from the kitchen, to bedrooms and bathrooms. It was spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. The highlight was the Hot Tub. The kids absolutely loved it, not to mention the staff. Although the house is centrally located, you would need transport from the house to get to places, either a car or bus. There is a Bart station in the town but it was too far for our pupils to walk. We hired a coach each day and this was fine. I would not hesitate to recommend a stay here to anyone thinking of a break near San Francisco. We had a few teething problems of using equipment in a different country, and rang Don to ask his advice. He came round the three time we had to ring him and was so pleasant about our worries PLUS sorted them straight away. You could not stay anywhere better in my opinion. A fabulous trip, Thanks Don and Krista so much - as it is not easy booking from abroad.

Firstly Don was extremely responsive to any every question I had leading up to our stay and provided us with lists of activities to do while on our trip. The house is BEAUTIFUL and there is plenty of room. The house was so clean, everything exceeded our expectations ! If you are planning on visiting the Bay Area with a big group this is the ONLY place to stay!

Wonderful Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

We did not dream it would be possible to gather 25 family members in one place for a family wedding and be comfortable! However, Don and Krista Robertson made our dream a reality! Offering a wonderful place to gather, relax and prepare for a family wedding and sight seeing adventure. They made sure everything we needed was readily available to us and that our stay was top shelf. The villas are beautiful, clean, spacious and well furnished as well as centrally located to many attractions and to downtown S.F. We had everything we needed to prepare large meals, entertain folks from 2 to 66 years and as we have several professionals in the mix, places to conduct business and access to the internet! Don and Krista were at our beck and call if we needed anything, set up highchairs and portable cribs, and made our stay very personable and enjoyable. They were amazing hosts without being intrusive. I cannot say enough about our experience with them. I cannot rate it high enough! Thank you so much for making our vacation to West Coast Villas so wonderful!

AMAZING place

  • 5 of 5

We hoped to find a place to have our entire family gather for Christmas. With seven children and their spouses, 9 grandchildren, one parent-in-law, and all from cities across the country, we were logically concerned. HOWEVER, Don and Krista Robertson provided both a facility and personal "connection" that made our family gathering amazingly smooth and comfortable.

The facilities are spectacular - clean, neat, functional, well located, but the personal attention to detail was truly amazing. Don indicated they would set up Christmas lights and a tree, they provided cribs and high chairs, were easily available and accessible "just in case", but not intrusive at all.

Our 2015 Christmas experience was magical, and made possible by the West Coast Villas. We will definitely look for an opportunity to return.

My large family stayed in Villa I and II over the holidays and it was a perfect place for us. Spacious bedrooms and bathrooms, clean place, and best of all the kitchen and seating area that sat 26 of us for meals and then followed by boardgames and hanging out. Way better than a hotel or other small rentals ive been to. Just a block from the grocery store and close to the freeway. It was a great place and I recommend to any large gathering! Also the huge walk-in pantry...so easy for storing our loads of food.
