A recent guest wrote, 'We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your gorgeous home! Everything was absolutely perfect from the moment we arrived to our departure. You have thought of everything to make our stay comfortable. It was truly home away from home. Thank you so much.' AA, Michigan

West Coast Villa is located in Castro Valley, in the San Francisco Bay Area. This is a perfect location for all of your sightseeing activities. This vacation rental home is nestled in the a quiet, upscale residential neighborhood. The home has great views of the town of Castro Valley, the surrounding hills and partial views of the San Francisco Bay. We are located just two blocks from a shopping area including a grocery store (Supermarket and Deli), restaurants, fitness facility, Bank, and Coffee Shop. You will also find Costco, Trader Joe's and other stores nearby.

Check it out for yourself. Most San Francisco properties are much older. West Coast Villa underwent extensive remodeling and a large addition in 2005 conforming to all current building and safety codes. Each year we set aside time to upgrade features of the house and gardens. West Coast Villa consists of two attached homes to allow for absolute privacy, yet large enough for group interaction.

We offer 3 rental options for this house.

1. You can rent the entire home as an 8 bedroom estate. This option sleeps a maximum of 21 guests.

3. You can rent just the 3 bedroom, 3 bath home called Villa II. This option sleeps up to 6 guests.

Our pricing is fair and based on the number of nights and the number of guests you have.

The pricing is, of course, lower if you choose option 2 or 3.

As a recent guest wrote, 'Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Your home is beautiful, your hospitality so warm and inviting. We enjoyed our visit. This was definitely 5 star!'

We have hosted nearly 10,000 guests from more than 57 countries in this San Francisco Vacation Rental home.

About Don or Krista Robertson

Hi, we're Don and Krista Robertson, owners of West Coast Villa, our San Francisco Bay Area vacation rental home. We'd love to host you and your family or group at one of our villas. Whether you are traveling with six or need space for 21, we've got you covered and will treat you like family at our vacation homes. We love the area and are available to help you plan a memorable trip to the Bay Area. Or if you are coming as a wedding party, we've got room for the family of the bride, or the family of the groom. Do you need help with your sightseeing plans - just ask and we can help you plan out a trip of a lifetime.

Don or Krista Robertson purchased this villa in 2001

Why Don or Krista Robertson chose San Francisco Bay Area

We really enjoy living in Castro Valley because it offers many advantages over the city of San Francisco. Here's why. San Francisco is often clouded over in a thick fog. Castro Valley enjoys far more clear skies and warm sunshine. Parking is a major problem at most San Francisco properties. It's never a problem at West Coast Villa - and it's FREE! Most guests only spend a couple of days in San Francisco then travel to the surrounding areas for sightseeing. Look at a map and you will find that we are in the center of all of the sightseeing activities and freeway access is much easier from our location than fighting the bridges of San Francisco every day. We are three blocks away from freeway access. Don't misunderstand. You'll still want to go to San Francisco and enjoy the sights and attractions. Average time spent in San Francisco for our guests over the last three years? 2 days. The rest of the time most of our guests visit places like Napa Valley, Sonoma Valley, Monterey, Carmel, Santa Cruz, San Jose, Livermore, Pleasanton and even Yosemite National Park. And West Coast Villa's location is absolutely ideal. If your goal is to see the entire San Francisco Bay Area, West Coast Villa is the place to call home. Get out of the San Francisco fog and enjoy this gorgeous vacation rental home.

What makes this villa unique

Here are some things you might want to do while vacationing at West Coast Villa in the heart of the San Francisco Bay Area:

San Francisco - Visit Alcatraz, Fisherman's Wharf, the Golden Gate Bridge Lombard Street, ride the cable cars and enjoy a good meal.

Visit Half Moon Bay, Santa Cruz, Monterey, and Carmel - stroll along white sandy beaches, enjoy clam chowder at the wharf, visit the sea lions or Monterey Bay Aquarium.

Take a trip to San Jose famous as the Silicon Valley and see the strange and peculiar Winchester Mystery House.

What trip to the San Francisco Bay Area is complete without a day in the Napa Valley or Sonoma Valley checking out the vineyards and wineries. Visit the multi-million dollar Castle featured on Bedtime Stories.

Hands down the best vacation rental ever!

  • 5 of 5

Central to all Bay Area sights. Easy freeway access. Clean, comfortable and very spacious. I've stayed over and over again since 2006 when they opened and the owners continue to make great improvements to the property every single year. West Coast Villa is great because it is adaptable to any size group we come with. They have 12 different rental options from a single suite or 3-8 bedroom options. Love it!

Wow! What An Amazing House! What An Awesome Experience!

  • 5 of 5

The family of the groom stayed here. The wedding was held off site but the Villa was an amazing place for all the preparations for the wedding, out of town guests from the East Coast and from overseas. The hosts allow for some events at an additional fee, but it is quite reasonable compared to other venues. They even have caterers and daily housekeeping if needed. They have thought through how to take care of guests and provide staff and services on an as needed basis. The great thing is that we were up front with our needs and they were able to price out all the extras we needed. And then we could pick and choose what we wanted to do that fit within our budget. Awesome to work with them. The house was ready for us when we arrived and very clean. They are pros!

Special School Trip

  • 5 of 5

Don and Krista - the Owners are extremely special people. I booked for a party of 24 special needs pupils from the UK to stay at the Villa. Don was so accommodating to every question and email I sent. Nothing was too much trouble and he replied and sorted everything I asked of him straight away. The house was beautiful, equipped really well from the kitchen, to bedrooms and bathrooms. It was spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. The highlight was the Hot Tub. The kids absolutely loved it, not to mention the staff. Although the house is centrally located, you would need transport from the house to get to places, either a car or bus. There is a Bart station in the town but it was too far for our pupils to walk. We hired a coach each day and this was fine. I would not hesitate to recommend a stay here to anyone thinking of a break near San Francisco. We had a few teething problems of using equipment in a different country, and rang Don to ask his advice. He came round the three time we had to ring him and was so pleasant about our worries PLUS sorted them straight away. You could not stay anywhere better in my opinion. A fabulous trip, Thanks Don and Krista so much - as it is not easy booking from abroad.

It was loads of fun to have you and your school group here at the Villa and I hope they will enjoy the memory of their time in the Bay Area for the rest of their lives. You are one very special teacher!

Firstly Don was extremely responsive to any every question I had leading up to our stay and provided us with lists of activities to do while on our trip. The house is BEAUTIFUL and there is plenty of room. The house was so clean, everything exceeded our expectations ! If you are planning on visiting the Bay Area with a big group this is the ONLY place to stay!
