We grew up in Castro Valley and this is Bill's boyhood home. We've totally remodeled it and love the seclusion in the midst of things, the beautiful,quiet neighborhood complete with resident urban deer and the ability to quickly walk to large parks and recreation areas.
Cindy Vinson purchased this house in 2008
Our family history is here - family gatherings, local schools, the UC Berkeley campus (many of our family, including us, are alumni!). We love how unique the Bay Area is today - amazing sights, incomparable cuisine from around the world,great people and weather too. Castro Valley's central location makes getting away to the Wine Country, Yosemite or the Gold Country easy as well!
Probably the best hing about our house is the feeling of country seclusion and charm so close to the city. No matter the season or time of day, the garden is quiet and peaceful, ever-changing with the seasons, and can be seen from every room of the house.
We had a great time in your Castro Valley vacation home! The house is very comfortable and homey, and it had everything we needed and more
besides. It is very centrally located to everything, yet it 's in a great, quiet neighborhood. The deer, birds and squirrels on the property were fun to watch - we even saw a red fox walking along the fence one morning!
Great property, spacious and comfortable for 6 pers. Quiet and safe neighbourhood. Large and secured garden for families with kids, public playground within 5 min walking. House is equipped with everything you need. Just come and enjoy your holidays like we did. Excellent contact to Cindy.
I would recommend this property to everyone.
A wonderful experience in a house with everything that you need. We had a small barbecue with family that lived nearby. For those who like day hiking, there are many trail options in the area. Very quiet and peaceful.
We'll be back! This house is quiet and private,with a lovely large garden and porch to relax on after a day of sightseeing. The bedrooms and bathrooms are comfortable, clean as a whistle and beautifully decorated. The kitchen is huge and comes with everything you could possibly want- even a Keurig with pods supplied! Visiting deer outside in the morning are fun to watch from the house. Lake Chabot and a pretty park are very close, and BART is a few minutes away. Perfect!
My husband and I have been renting homes through VRBO for a number of years and this is one of the nicer, well equipped homes we have stayed in; the photos and description are very accurate. The house is spotless and very well maintained with a lot of practical things to make vacationers feel like they are at home. The backyard is a lovely setting to relax after a busy day touring the beautiful Bay Area; the neighborhood is quiet and safe. The location of the home is perfect for sightseeing; it is close to the Castro Valley BART station as well as a major freeway artery. The owners are wonderful to work with. Thank you Cindy and Bill for sharing your lovely home with us.
This is a perfect location for visiting San Francisco, Napa, Sonoma, Monterey, Yosemite, Sausalito and other surrounding areas.
You have everything you need. Shopping close by. Bart station close if you don't want to drive to San Francisco.
Nice quiet area to relax in after a long day.
Owners are wonderful to work with. Respond quickly to your questions. Very helpful.
Great location for a whole Bay Area, house is very private and comfortable, not only well equipped but also full of practical details, you can feel like in your own home. Very clean and well maintained property, wonderful private garden and lawn. Neighborhood nice and quiet, we stayed for a week but it was hard to leave. Highly recommended!
