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

Lovely apartment in a quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

The owner Bob met us at arrival. Even carried our bags up. The apartment was lovely and hd everything you needed. The grounds are stunning. It’s about 30 mins from downtown SF. Uber cost between $25-30 one way but worth it since parking for the day can cost that much. Great dining close to the apartment. Recommend Jacks for Greek American and Basque cultural center for Basque cuisine. Have fun.

Would stay here again.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clean and spacious. Everything we needed was there. Lots of extras were included as well. Bob and Grace even gave us veggies from their garden. Can't say enough about their hospitality.

We felt very safe at the location.

Uber ride to Fishermans Wharf and other scenic areas was about $28. Nineteen from airport. Well worth it. The area around the apartment was very quite except for a few planes overhead every now and then. Liked the idea of being close to airport especially when it was time to leave to go home.

Would stay here again.
