Picture yourself enjoying this private luxury retreat in the San Francisco Bay Area. This Spanish Mission-style resort features beautiful landscaped gardens, a 7 seat hot tub set among Palms and tropical plantings. It sleeps up to 21 guests so it is sought after by families, group travel, couples traveling together and corporate rentals. It's centrally located for all your sight-seeing adventures. Enjoy large open spaces and comfortable bedroom retreats. We welcome you to West Coast Villa.

The space
West Coast Villa sits in the hills of Castro Valley overlooking the valley that include our rolling hills, partial views of the San Francisco Bay and Peninsula and many gorgeous sunsets.

The Villa is a 6500 square foot home with two gorgeous kitchens, great architectural details, spacious rooms and all the comforts of a luxury home. It is located just two blocks from a grocery store (Safeway) and one mile from a Trader Joe's. We have easy access to freeways and BART. It is located in a quiet and safe residential neighborhood. This well-maintained home sleeps up to 21 guests in real beds. We provide quality linens and bedspreads. It's an inviting home, full of space and light. Enjoy West Coast Villa!

It’s important to note that the Villa is made up of two attached homes on one lot. The main house is 5 bed / 4 bath and the smaller attached house is 3 bed / 3 bath. It features two great kitchens, large dining rooms, wide-open spaces ideal for group meetings, or family gatherings. There are three gas fireplaces. We have a total of 9 queen beds and 3 twin beds. The home has 8 TV’s.

Due to our unique micro-climate, we are often 10°F - 20°F warmer than San Francisco during the day and we normally cool down at night with the early evening fog that rolls in from San Francisco.

This wonderful resort opens to a large living room with a beautiful gas fireplace and doors that lead out to a 400 square foot roofed over patio and the tropical landscaping. There are 8 bedrooms with a total of 12 beds, 7 full bathrooms, two large kitchens, sitting rooms, and expansive dining rooms.

Outdoors, just a few steps away from the house, is a large hot tub as well as two Weber BBQ grills for your enjoyment.

The landscaped and manicured gardens were planted by the owners and are for your enjoyment. You are invited to pick fruit for your personal use from our private “orchard.” We have, in season, apples, plums, cherries, Valencia Oranges (for juice) and Naval and Mandarin oranges for eating as well as lemon trees. There are Queen and Pygmy Palms that grace this property. The many varieties of flowers often fill the estate with an intoxicating fragrance of roses, lavender, star jasmine and orange, lemon and apple blossoms. There is something fresh for every season.

If you don't need quite as much space check out our other listings.

Guest access
You should make yourself at home during your stay. Enjoy the gardens, the private hot tub and the outdoor patio. The home is for your exclusive use.

The owners live at the property in a private owner's suite. There is no direct access to it through the house. However, there are parts of the property that are not accessible for guests. The garages are reserved for storage and maintenance items, but there is plenty of driveway parking and street parking for more than 15 cars.

You have access to free high-speed WiFi, the house stereo system, DirecTV.

Other things to note
Unfortunately, the Airbnb system does not recognize groups that travel with more than 16 guests so there is no way for the system to properly price groups of this size. However, we can sleep up to 20 in beds. Our rates are based on the total number of guests. Therefore, if you have more than 16 guests we do charge extra person charges for each person, each night. We will collect those fees at the time of your arrival.

Our rates are based on the total number of guests.

We follow a good neighbor policy. We respect our neighbors’ right to the quiet enjoyment of their property. As a result, we maintain Quiet Hours at all of our properties from 10 p.m. - 7 a.m. This is to maintain peace in our neighborhood as well as in the home when guests are sharing spaces in our large Villas.

- We DO NOT permit events or parties or any non-registered guests at this property.
- Do you need room for more guests? Ask, we also have other properties that may be available for extra guests.
- All guests (including visitors, children, infants, day-use guests, etc.) must be registered. No one else is permitted on the property. A violation of this rule will result in immediate termination of this agreement with no refund.
- This is a pet-free and smoke-free property. We do not allow smoking of any kind in or around the property. We do not permit pets.
- Please use coasters when putting drinks on wood furniture
- We expect our guests to treat others in the neighborhood as they would wish to be treated. It's a simple but profound way to live!
- All guests must provide a government-issued photo ID (driver's license, passport, etc.). upon arrival and sign our rental agreement.

- Infants: Airbnb does not charge a fee for infants under 2 years old. Our insurance and HOA require us to list all guests including infants in the count for occupancy. We DO charge for ALL occupants. The extra person charge is collected upon arrival or through the platform. We can also provide a Pak-n-play crib and a high chair.

Parking: There is plenty of free street parking on both sides of the street in front of our Villas. Please do not park in a red zone or in front of driveways or over sidewalks.

Weather:
Castro Valley has some of the greatest weather on Earth. We are close to San Francisco, but we seldom suffer the cold, damp fog during the day. From April through October, you can expect temperatures to range from 70 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit (20°C to 33°C) during the day. We often enjoy cooler nights as the San Francisco fog eventually makes its way across the Bay and stops at the Castro Valley hills. There are significant temperature fluctuations or micro-climates throughout the Bay Area and we encourage you to be prepared for 20-degree swings in temperature. Dressing in layers is always appropriate.

Planning Ahead:
If there are specific sights you want to see (such as Alcatraz) we encourage you to book your tickets in advance as many of the popular tourist attractions sell out.

House Rules:
We ask that you treat our family home as your own and leave it in the same way as you hope to find it.

The Day of Departure:
We want your stay here to be one of the best vacations of your life. When it comes to the time to leave, we do not want you to worry about doing the laundry and making the beds. This will be taken care of as part of the Cleaning Fee. We will also vacuum, clean floors, bathrooms & kitchen (subject to normal and reasonable use).

We ask you to place all trash in the trash bins.

Please note the cleaning fee does not cover:
Repairs, stain removal, damage, excessive trash disposal, clearing away unwanted items or garbage, washing dirty dishes or glassware.

Use of Home:
No parties, events or unauthorized guests or unregistered guests
We do not permit music, bands, amplified voices, etc. outside.
Any music or amplified voices inside must not be heard outside and must be shut down by 10 p.m.
We do not permit weddings at the property.
We do not permit events that are "adult" in nature.

This is a pet-free, smoke-free and drug-free property. If you do smoke out on the public sidewalk, please do not discard ashes or butts in lawns or gardens.

Hot Tub Policy (If your rental has a hot tub)
There are inherent risks using a hot tub. Please note that the tub and walkways may be slippery when wet. Please read and follow all posted rules. Hot tub use is at your own risk. Please DO NOT use any glass or glass bottles near the hot tub. Drink water for hydration from plastic cups or plastic bottles. Please do not drink alcohol in the hot tub.

Location

Castro Valley, California, United States

Our home is located in a quiet, comfortable and safe neighborhood in Castro Valley, California, United States. Our street is part of the East Bay Regional Parks District hiking trails. There are lots of trails nearby of varying difficulty. We are also close to Lake Chabot with a circuit of 9 miles as well as boating, fishing and picnics. We are two blocks from Safeway 24 hour grocery store, a BBQ restaurant and Panda Express. We are just 3 blocks from the I-580 freeway entrance to get you everywhere you want to go. The Villa is built on a hill so there are some pretty great views of town, the surrounding hills and great sunsets. Castro Valley is probably the most moderate climate in the Bay Area with temperatures warmer during the day than San Francisco and cooler at night than the Valley. We are just 30 minutes to San Francisco (off commute), 35 minutes by BART, 20 minutes to outlet shopping, 40 minutes to Napa Valley, and easy day trips to Santa Cruz, Monterey, Carmel, Muir Woods and all the Theme Parks. We are centrally located for easy access to major league sports, too - Oakland A's, San Francisco Giants, Oakland Raiders, San Francisco 49ers, San Jose Sharks, Golden State Warriors.

We are both involved with local and overseas ministry opportunities, a special group of college and career adults at our church and hospitality. Hospitality = the love of strangers.

During your stay
We try to meet all of our guests in person upon arrival. We have hosted over 11,000 guests from 60+ countries and have found that most of our guests like to have that human interaction. We are friendly and we love meeting new people. Many of our guests arrive as strangers and leave as friends. We're happy to answer any questions you may have and take care of any issues that may come up. We live in the area and sometimes we live in our Villa I or Villa II when they are not being rented by guests or in another nearby property. We are usually readily available for your needs, but we are not intrusive. We are usually just a phone call away. We hope you enjoy our Villa and our property.

The property of this nature and size needs to be maintained for your enjoyment. In light of this, you may see us outside occasionally working in the garage or in the yards as we service the property, or work in preparation for upcoming guests and events just as we will do prior to your stay. There may also be the occasional yet discrete gardeners, cleaning and maintenance staff that may come on their scheduled days during your stay. They arrive to complete their work and will not interact with you or your guests. Please note that the standard rental does not include mid-stay cleanings or service, however, it is available at an additional cost if it is scheduled in advance.

The owners use a private suite at the main house. You will not have access to this private suite as it is locked off from the rest of the house. We are readily available to help you with any needs you have.
