Julieta Gabiola purchased this house in 2003

Why Julieta Gabiola chose Pedro Point

This home is in a scenic and coveted Pedro Point Area in Pacifica only about 15 minute drive to one of the most popular cities in the world: San Francisco.

It is scenic, serene and spiritual amidst Eucalyptus and pine trees overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Golden Gate Bridge. It is about 28 miles to Stanford University, part of Silicon Valley, 116 miles to Monterey/Carmel/Asilomar and famous Pebble Beach golf course. Wine tasting and touring Napa/Sonoma Valley is about 74 miles away. It is certainly a nice GETAWAY from our busy lives.

What makes this house unique

The home is spacious with views in all the rooms, large bedrooms, a nice remodeled kitchen which is so inviting to any gourmet cook , three outdoor porches with grill. Professional grade appliances, a Concert Grand Disklavier piano and a 8 person jacuzzi. The area is residential, quiet yet only 15 minutes from San Francisco. One may see a family of deer strolling around, lots of trees, a nice Eucalyptus smell in the air and ocean view.

Beautiful house and what a view!

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything we could ask for! The view both from inside the house and out on the balcony was wonderful!! The first few days were a little chilly and overcast, but each day got warmer and more clear and the last day we could see the Golden Gate bridge. The house has a calm and luxurious feel to it. We had 9 adults and were very pleased with the elegant, comfortable bedrooms. Because it is up a steep hill, it would be difficult to walk to and from the beach, but it is a short drive to a number of beaches, tide pools and hiking trails.

Unique home on costal bluff

  • 5 of 5

Seven members of our family stayed at this lovely house during a family wedding. This is a well maintained vintage home, formerly the family residence of the host. The home is accessed via a paved road that winds its way up the bluff. There is parking for two vehicles on the apron of the garage as well as a paved street slot (We parked 3 full sized SUV's.) The house is spacious and rambles over 4 levels, with multiple decks overlooking the bluff & ocean. We enjoyed seeing several whales breaching while we sat on one of the decks. There is also an engaging informal vista point a short walk to the top of the hill. The house is furnished in carved wood furniture, oriental rugs, and live orchids. All appliances are newer and top-of the line, including Viking, Sub Zero, Miele and LG washer/dryer. Beds were comfortable, and there was plenty of hot water for all our needs. A good Safeway grocery store and Ace hardware are a 5 minute drive away. There was also a farmer's market at Pedro Point with hours listed in Google Maps.

"One hand washes the other" is the reasonable approach of this rental. Be sure to read through the binder that outlines house rules and how to use the media/appliances, etc. Remember that Julieta would appreciate your washing the linens (the last load can be in the machines,) and running the dishwasher before you leave. This reduces the cleaning cost she must charge her guests.

Julieta, who lives on the property, was warm, caring, and very sensitive to our needs. Meeting her was really a treat!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

The house was very nice. The road leading to the house was a bit sketchy but no fault of the owner. It was close to a nice shopping area and some resteraunts. Drive to San Francisco and San Hose was easy. Overall a nice place to stay. We enjoyed it.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your nice review. You also left my home very clean and organized. Thanks also for starting the laundry. You were also so quiet that I hardly heard you from my apartment below. Would love to have you back anytime. Julieta

Gorgeous Views of the Ocean! Walking Distance to the Ocean!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a wonderful home to stay in! The pictures on the website are great, but do not even come close to the gorgeous views! The home was clean and very welcoming! We had 4 adults and 5 children and had more than enough room! We would stay again!
