Vallejo townhome description

Our historic and wonderfully unique Carquinez Straight Victorian was built at the southern end of Mare Island in 1910 as the first lighthouse to mark the entrance to the Carquinez Straight and Napa River. Even though it has been decommissioned as a lighthouse since 1954, it has been nestled in the tranquil, quaint Glen Cove area of Vallejo since 1955 and continues to flourish as the centerpiece for the Glen Cove Marina.
This renovated two-story townhome has all the modern conveniences for comfortable and easy living, but the charm & personality of this building is certainly not lost. It has over 1900 square feet of space; and includes 4 bedrooms (3 upstairs and 1 ground level) that sleeps up to 6-7 people comfortably, with 2 full bathrooms. This fully furnished, spacious and peaceful rental provides our guests with the luxury of free wi-fi, a washer/dryer inside, a fully equipped modern kitchen, plus additional restroom facilities on-site.
Not only are you able to look out onto the bright, blue waters of the Carquinez Straight from your wrap-around porch balcony, you get to soak in the sunshine and appreciate the stunning sunsets this area has to offer. If you are in the mood for some exercise or a scenic stroll, we have 2 walking trails on either side of our marina that offers you a spectacular view of the Carquinez Bridge. Or if you have a boat, you are able to berth it on our guest dock and enjoy the pleasures of home before & after you take your boat out on the water!

                    What an absolutely fantastic place to stay!! There are very few places like it, and I am an avid traveler. My family and I spent a week here and could not have enjoyed our stay more- we loved every minute of it! It is a historic building in a great location. You can't beat the view!! Watching the sunrise and sunset from a gorgeous Marina in a cozy Lighthouse - very very charming and unique! And one of the biggest assets is the staff - The management must be congratulated on their hiring and staffing policy - they have assembled a great team. Everyone was incredibly courteous, helpful - they did everything they could to make us feel welcome and comfortable. We felt like we were "at home!" - highly highly recommended!

                    Such an amazing location but nOT ready for visitors. I chose this place for a quiet roomy spot to do homework and take my teens to 6 flags. Was shocked when I arrived... Tape and paper was left on windows. I was not aware of any renovations and when I arrived they said it would not disrupt my stay but it did! The wireless did not work and the only contact to address any issues could not understand English very well over the phone. Such a charming house and nice community but very displeased with my stay.

                    Manager response: We sincerely apologize for any inconveniences or disturbances to anyone's comfort under our care! We truly wish vacationers will always address any issues with us while they are here, especially because we have staff onsite & 3 people who are easily accessible 24/7. We can honestly say that we will do everything we can to improve people's experiences with us - but we DO have to be informed if someone isn't enjoying their stay during the actual time they are here. To provide an explanation, we were even taken by surprise that the painter's window coverings were still up the morning of this family's arrival - because we were told it would be removed by the painters the night before. Even though these guests arrived quite a few hours earlier than our designated check-in time (and the paper would have been completely removed by 3:00pm) we desperately wanted to accommodate this family. Further, our maintenance man told us that it was expressed by a family member that the half papered windows weren't a big deal & not to worry about it (while he was removing the paper from the windows). The wi-fi does require a password & we do take responsibility for not providing that to this party in advance, as it changes after every reservation. It is unclear why they chose to express their disappointment 2 1/2 weeks After their stay with us. Our week-long attempts to amicably resolve the negative memories for this family were ultimately denied. Unfortunately the review was an intentional bargaining tool and we do wish we could have settled this so everyone walked away happy & thankful. This is the same way we would want to settle discontent with anyone. But we will wish them & your family happiness and health - and may we all continue to be the best we can be! :)

                    This was great place to hold our retreat for our club! There was hiking trails where we could go and do some team building stuff. There was tons of room and parking but it was still close to restaurants and stores. The place was beautiful, quiet, and spacious, and comfortable. The only downside was that we ran out of toilet paper very quickly and had to go buy more!

                    Eight grown men came up for the Arizona/Cal football game and stayed the weekend for sightseeing and we had a wonderful time. The accomodations were perfect with plenty of room. Very peaceful and relaxing with a beautiful view of the marina. They are in the process of remodeling the historic light house but it does not affect the portion of the light house where you stay. Nice outdoor grill provided along with plenty of furnishings for the inside of the home. We will all come back and stay for the next AZ/Cal game.

                    My girlfriends and I just spent a weekend at this amazing waterfront Victorian! There were five of us and we had plenty of room. The views are amazing, and the kitchen is fully equipped which was great for a bigger group! It was a perfect location for us, one day we were able to go to San Francisco, and the next day we did a day trip to Napa. Quiet at night and totally safe. Nothing like waking up in the morning to see the water and the sunshine. I can't wait to plan my next trip.

She is absolutely welcome back here anytime she would like to visit. She communicated very well about their arrival times and gave us the awesome gift of being respectful, polite and clean :) We hope to see her again soon!

                    My family and I had a great time staying at Marina Glen Cove. The people who works there are very kind and friendly. Rachael is a great host and always made sure that everything was ok. The place is very spacious and clean. The kitchen is fully equipped. Groceries and little shops are within minutes from the house. We spend most of our time visiting San Francisco but when we were at the house it really felt like a home to us. Driving to San Francisco was pretty easy, it took us around 40 minutes with traffic. We will definitely be going back to Marina Glen Cove. I totally recommend this place. You will not regret spending time there!

                    Manager response: Mara and her family were an absolute joy to host! They were all incredibly friendly and sweet, even though we didn't see too much of them. They communicated their arrival and departure times and were on time. They left our rental very clean and we would love to have them back anytime! Mara is just a doll! :)

                    Great place to stay and lots of room. We had a family of six and had more than enough room for all of us. Even though it's a little out of the way it was worth the stay and we wish we were there for another night. Beautiful and safe location. Who doesn't like staying on the docks on the bay.
