Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Grace and Bob,



Many thanks for providing us the opportunity to stay at your estate and we enjoyed staying at your place and we absolutely enjoyed it. We also enjoyed San Francisco.



We miss the tennis court too. It was a beautiful private court and Natalie got some very good practice playing on your court that should help her in her preparation for the tournaments during this summer. I loved the plants, the statues and the arrangement of all things put together and it was a perfect setting,

Greetings!  Enter here for a  lovely Tuscan Villa retreat!

VRBO Bear stayed here

Aug 1, 2008

This Tuscan villa apartment made for the perfect bear retreat in South San Francisco! We were minutes from the airport, which added to the excitement and anticipation. The entrance gate opened and we drove into a lovely garden of beautiful flowers on each side of the stone driveway. The owners live on site and met us for a tour before leaving us on our own to enjoy. They were most helpful and so friendly. The grounds are well kept and we had a lovely view of the hot tub and tennis courts. From the moment we walked through the door, we were impressed by the ambiance of this warm and inviting home away from home. The Tuscan decor was exquisite. The bedrooms and their closets are especially roomy and the beds super comfy. The pullout leather sofa was easy to use and comfortable to sleep on as well. The kitchen was equipped for a beartastic meal, which was a nice change to eating out! We loved watching a movie on the flat screen after a long day of sightseeing. It was an added bonus to have a laptop computer for our use! We were sad to leave our bear lair in South San Francisco! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and I am confident that you will too! The VRBO Bear

Beautiful property with something for everyone

  • 5 of 5

What wonderful hosts and beautiful property. Our only regret was not being able to spend more time at the house. There was plenty of space and the place was very clean and well maintained. If Our travels take us again to San Francisco, this is where we will always stay.

Wonderful visit in the San Francisco area

  • 5 of 5

We were in town to visit our Son, who was temporarily living in downtown San Francisco. Bob and Grace's villa was wonderful. We were very comfortable and had everything we needed. The villa is as presented in the photos with the bathroom being particularly nice. The kitchen was nicely stocked for preparing evening meals and we twice used the nice outdoor gas grill. Bob welcomed us upon arrival and made sure we were comfortable with all of the mechanics; door look, heat, etc. of the villa. We conversed several times with Grace throughout the week and felt very much welcomed. They had even put out some Christmas decorations in the villa as we were there over the holiday.

It was comforting knowing that Bob and Grace were right on the property should we have needed anything. The property is very nice and very secure. While there have been prior comments on the proximity to the airport we were not bothered at all by any noise from overhead airplanes. The location south of the city was just about 25 minutes from downtown and we experienced no problems going in and out of the city. We would most certainly stay with Bob and Grace again should our travels bring us to San Francisco and without hesitation recommend their villa to others.

Enjoyable property for weeklong visit

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for a week while visiting our two sons who live in the area. It was our granddaughter's first birthday. The location was an easy ten minute drive from the airport. There is a Walgreens within walking distance for all sorts of miscellaneous items and a large grocery store just a short drive away. The apartment was perfect for the two of us. It felt pretty private overall and the size was great. The kitchen is nicely sized and stocked and worked well for casual breakfasts as well as for more involved cooking of a couple of family dinners. The noise from the planes overhead is pretty much all of the time but was only really bothersome the few times when it was in the middle of the night.

Beautiful Home and Wondeful Host

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was just what we needed for a family of four. The pictures on the site do it no justice, just a beautiful property. My kids and husband enjoyed the tennis court and basketball court every morning. Bob and Grace were so kind to us and made sure we had everything we needed. We would definitely stay here again.

It is beautiful! Such a wonderful use of space!

  • 5 of 5

I am a travel nurse that stayed here for 3 months. It was beautiful and private and Bob and Grace were very welcoming. It was a beautiful home away from home. Sometimes the airport noise is a little intense but is short lived and doesn't interfere with sleep. The property is very conveniently located to everything. I would highly recommend!
