Recent California reviews

  • Loved it.

    "We very much enjoyed our stay. The place is dripping in history, (creamery in 1890s, prospective bootlegging location in 20s!) Mary Jane and her son in law met us to give us advice and ideas. The place is really right on the water and you have a continuous "show" of fishing boats, birds (Ack! We watched Hitchcock's "The Birds" and tried to scare ourselves), seals, etc., right out the window. We managed to launch kayaks right off the side deck (you have to time the tides,) drove the coast (amazing free beaches great for photography), ate at the harbor, went into Bodega, watched crabbers on Doran beach, etc. It was fun to be there during crab season to see all the activity. The 2 bedroom is plenty roomy enough for my husband and me and our two teenaged daughters. The age of the building gives this a quaint feel with wide stairwell and odd angles to the ceilings. Nice beds, plenty of towels, etc. I would warn anyone staying anywhere in Bodega Bay...you do not have a "real" grocery store nearby, so getting what you want is higher in price and you may not get the "brand" you love. But it would totally destroy the visit if there was a Raleys or Bel Air! I rate this place a 5. It is not the Ritz, but I don't want to stay at the Ritz. I want to stay in a place where I can relax and enjoy."

  • Beautiful, Clean, Thoughtfully Supplied Solana Beach Condo

    "My wife and I rented this condo for 4 weeks and it was absolutely lovely. We met the owner upon our arrival who walked us through the property, showed us where the extra supplies were, answered our questions, and graciously let us be. This condo is also the owners second home and it was clean, artfully decorated, and all appliances were like new. This unit was recently renovated with high quality materials, flooring, and dressers. A short walk gets you down to the beach, and the community is quiet and respectful. We have rented other units in the past, and NONE COMPARED to the cleanliness and charm of this unit! I would not hesitate to stay here again, and would recommend it for anyone else!"

  • Home away from home

    "As soon as we walked in we knew we had made the right choice. Everything was so clean and the house was very spacious. We loved the attention to detail. My family and I had a great time rising early to watch the volleyball players, taking walks to restaurants and bike riding through the small roads. We enjoyed it very much and will be coming back soon."

  • Even better than it looks in the pictures!

    "My parents, my husband and our 2 children stayed for a week between Christmas and New Years and could not have asked for a better place to stay. It is easily as comfortable and lovely as it looks in the photos. There is plenty of room (we had 6 around the dining table and could have fit 8 or 10 easily). This is a great section of the Peninsula as it is not as noisy as it is by the piers. Walks along the beach and the bay were easy, and there were plenty of beach toys and bikes in the garage as well. The house is well set up for beach living with minimal carpeting-a bonus when you have kids and pets and don't want to have to worry about spills. It was very helpful to have laundry facilities, as well as beach towels provided. The upstairs bedroom feels like a lovely retreat for a couple, while the kids stay downstairs with Grandma and Grandpa. Easy walking distance to the piers (depending on what you're used to walking) and parking wasn't bad since we were here in the winter. There is a nearby Elementary school playground-a nice bonus for families with children. Can easily recommend this for anyone."

California Travel Tips

Our country’s largest state by population, and third largest by area, is home to a wonderful diversity in cultures, climate and landscapes. Here are the top sites to see and things to do in California by region:

The Bay Area

The Bay Area is best known as a free-spirited locale that is home to the biggest tech giants in Silicon Valley, including Facebook, Twitter, Google and Microsoft. It’s anchored by two major cities - San Jose to the south and hilly San Francisco, a major tourist destination on the north end. Here are the top things to do while you’re in the Bay Area:

- Visit the sites in San Francisco. You can’t miss the iconic Golden Gate Bridge - bike across it, walk or take an open-air tour bus to experience the massive bridge in all its glory. Visitors can also take a ferry and tour spooky Alcatraz Island. Other attractions include shopping on Fisherman’s Wharf, checking out the sea lions on Pier 39 and immersing yourself in science at The Exploratorium and California Academy of Sciences. If you’re traveling here in the summer, bring a jacket! SF can be blazing hot and then overcast and chilly within the same day as the famed fog rolls in.

- Head north across the Golden Gate to see the giant redwoods in Muir Woods and check out some excellent wineries in the charming Sonoma and Napa valleys.

- Visit the amazing Monterey Bay Aquarium and nearby beaches San Carlos Beach Park and Pebble Beach.

- Be one with nature at Yosemite National Park in the Sierra Nevadas or climb the famous Half Dome and El Capitan mountains.

- Go skiing or participate in other adventure sports in Lake Tahoe, just north of Yosemite.

Southern California

SoCal, as it’s sometimes called, is one of the sunniest and most celeb-studded places in the country. There’s plenty to do and see in and around Los Angeles and San Diego, the two major cities in the area. Here are the top spots:

- If you’re traveling with kids around L.A., head to Disneyland in Anaheim - the only Disney Park built under the direction of The Man Behind the Magic himself. Or, check out Knotts Berry Farm, a perennial childhood favorite that first opened in 1940. There are roller coasters, kids’ rides, games and plenty of fun for everyone. Don’t miss dining at Mrs. Knott’s California Marketplace for the renowned fried chicken, biscuits and boysenberry pie.

- L.A. is also the epicenter of the entertainment industry. Check out the Hollywood Walk of Fame, take a tour of Universal Studios and hike in the area surrounding the Hollywood Sign.

- Catch a Lakers game or popular concert at the Staples Center

- Take a hike in the Joshua Tree National Park in the beautiful Mojave Desert.

- Southern California is also home to some excellent festivals: Coachella Music Fest in Coachella Valley, the annual L.A. County Fair and the Newport Beach Film Festival, not to mention the Golden Globes and the Academy Awards. If you want to see some major celebrities, hang out in one of the cafes or restaurants on Rodeo Drive.

- If you’re traveling with kids in San Diego, Seaworld or the esteemed San Diego Zoo are excellent options, and Legoland in nearby Carlsbad will provide hours of fun.

- The valleys in central California are less-populated than the coastal areas, but one must-see is the Hearst Castle. It’s an ornate, palatial, 165-room home built for newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst and set among 127 acres of gardens in San Simeon, halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles.
