Recent San Francisco Bay Area reviews

  • perfect!

    "This was my first VRBO experience. My daughter and I had a couple of days to spend in the San Franciso area and this property was JUST RIGHT. The apartment was charming, spotless and comfortable. The bathroom was AMAZING and the toiletries provided very much appreciated. Monica was there to welcome us as she was gardening in her lovely yard. She provided all information necessary before our arrival - no keys, just a code to enter! She also provided a code for the WIFI ahead of time. All the information we needed came via email and there were no surprises. The beds were very comfy and the coffee from the Keuring was really all we needed before heading out to see S.F. and Marin County. The location could not be any more convenient, literally right off the highway and secluded enough to be quiet and private. Mill Valley is minutes away from countless attractions - Muir Woods, Muir Beach, Sausalito, Golden Gate Park, the Panoramic Highway, Napa Valley, and not to mention San Francisco. I would enthusiatically recommend this property to family and friends. Thanks Monica!"

  • Lovely & Romantic - A Must For Your Bucket List!

    "If you’re looking for a lovely and romantic cottage retreat then Full Circle must be on your bucket list. Attention to detail is prevalent from the moment you arrive. The peaceful and relaxing atmosphere is abundant whether you’re inside enjoying the period decorations or outside lounging in the steamer chairs or enjoying the spa. The ocean view is fantastic, whether you’re sitting on the upper deck with a glass of wine enjoying the sunset or opening a window or two and falling asleep or waking up to the sound of the ocean waves. It is apparent from the moment you arrive that the owners and caretaker do everything possible to ensure the comfort of their guests. Scott & Nola Camino, CA"

  • Lea Maynard - Pickering, Ontario

    "My husband and I stayed at this VRBO June 30 to July 7. The only word that I can use to describe our experience is amazing. The pictures do not do justice to how comfortable and at home we felt while here. The added bonus of the use of the backyard with hot tub and fire pit area as well as the wonderful balcony complete with comfy chairs and the view of San Francisco. On July 4th the firework displays from the balcony, outstanding. Our California friends that joined us were delighted to be staying in such a lovely home. If you are planning a trip to Oakland or the San Francisco area I would definitely recommend that you stay here."

  • Close to Opera and Symphony

    "Are you tired of Union Square hotels? Has Fisherman's Wharf lost it's charm? If so, this is the place for you, a great spot if you want to experience what it is like to actually live in San Francisco. The accommodations are fine, area restaurants are not only good but reasonably priced, and there is great access to buses. Accessible food stores and a well stocked kitchen make eating in an alternative. The apartment is particularly good if you are in town for the opera or symphony - both are a mere 15 minutes away on foot."
