Don and Krista Robertson purchased this Villa in 2001
Why Don and Krista Robertson chose Castro Valley
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.

The property is amazing, even better than the pictures show. Very quiet neighborhood, the Villa has everything you could possibly need for a relaxing , comfortable , 1st class stay. Everything was very clean, beds very comfortable . We cooked dinner in the 1st night, my boss is Italian when she walked in and saw the kitchen she insisted on making a spaghetti dinner... Home owners are great. Thanks for making our stay amazing and relaxing after enduring 5 crazy days@ Dreamforce conference in San Francisco.
Hands down the best vacation rental ever!
Central to all Bay Area sights. Easy freeway access. Clean, comfortable and very spacious. I've stayed over and over again since 2006 when they opened and the owners continue to make great improvements to the property every single year. West Coast Villa is great because it is adaptable to any size group we come with. They have 12 different rental options from a single suite or 3-8 bedroom options. Love it!
Fabulous property with incredible owners
This property is everything plus more
We used it for our family and bridal party to stay in for our daughters wedding Don and Krista the owners were accommodating and our entire family loved it
You will not be disappointed if you rent this villa !
Many thanks Don and Krista
This Villa is sooooooo amazing for a big team vacation there! My party had a large number of people. We had a wonderful time there and if we go to San Francisco again, we will stay again! Don is very kind and was a gentleman for us! This was totally a great experience.
We really appreciate that you have taken the time to write a review. We try hard to exceed the expectations of our guests. We're glad you had so much fun. This is one of the largest vacation rental homes in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Wow! What An Amazing House! What An Awesome Experience!
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!
We really appreciate that you have taken the time to write a review. We enjoy working with guests like you. Thank you for letting us know what needs you had in advance and allowing us to exceed your expectations. We hope to see you again in the future.
Special School Trip
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.
We really appreciate that you took the time time to write such a nice review. We try hard to exceed the expectations of our guests. It was loads of fun to have you and your school group here at the Villa and I hope they will enjoy the memory of their time in the Bay Area for the rest of their lives. You are one very special teacher!
