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

Nice

  • 3 of 5

The apartment was very nice and clean. The owners are very nice. I think some of the other reviewers downplayed how loud it is being next to the airport. The planes are very loud. I am a light sleeper so I did not get a good nights sleep during our stay. I also did not read the fine print that a 5th person would be an additional fee per night. So we paid more per night to have our son sleep on an uncomfortable couch bed in the living room.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us. The charge for the 5th person is clearly stated in the quote at the time of the booking before any payments are made. We're sorry your child was uncomfortable but you did not voice any of your concerns to us when we asked you if every thing was alright during your stay. Perhaps an air mattress would have helped. Grace has gone shopping for a more comfortable sleeper as I write this response. We are close to the airport and sometimes due to weather, more flights come over us. We will make sure to note that in the description on the website. Happy travels, Bob and Grace

Beautiful apartment in South San Francisco

  • 5 of 5

Excellent place to stay if you want to see San Francisco and the surrounding areas. Close to SF airport and 20 minutes from San Francisco. The owners, Bob and Grace were very nice and helpful with information on the area. The apartment was very clean and spacious for a family of four. Close to a drug store, grocery store, restaurants and other shopping. Easy access to roads for any area. We traveled to Yosemite, Muir Woods, Sausalito, Monterey, Carmel and every part of the city. There is also a BART stop in San Bruno if you want to take the train to the city. We tried it, but it ended up being more expensive than parking in the city. Use one of the parking apps, Parking Panda or Spot Hero. You can reserve a parking spot for $17 to $22 for the whole day. We had a great time and would definitely stay at this apartment again if we travel to San Francisco again.

Wonderful stay in the Bay Area

  • 5 of 5

Bob and Grace were fantastic hosts who welcomed us into their beautiful estate. Our family of 2 adults and 2 teens enjoyed the apartment and property. We only wish we would have had more time to enjoy the property and more time to interact with Bob and Grace who made themselves available but did not interfere with our stay. The apartment was just as pictured and beautifully decorated. We utilized the location to take many adventures north to downtown S.F. and beyond along with trips to the east bay area and south to San Jose and Santa Cruz. The location was great for exploring the entire area. While other parts of the country and even nearby parts of California were getting blasted by the summer heat, we were able to enjoy daytime high temperatures in the 60's and nights in the 50's.

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.
