This was my first time in the bay area. When i told a friend where i was staying she told me that this was what California used to look like. I loved my time here. Watching condors soar on the thermals. Watching the fishing boats seine on the strait. There are no words to describe the view. Sitting here now...

Management response:

So happy your stay was a success! Please do come back in the summer or fall . You can really enjoy the deck much more then. Glad you had a few days of clear weather and sun during this very rainy winter.

Located in a quaint village east of San Francisco, this is the perfect get away for urbanites, You immediately make yourself at home in this warm and serene setting. The bedrooms are large and welcoming with wall-to-wall, mirrored closets with cedar shelving/seating and large windows overlooking the hillside garden, The bathroom is large enough to include a vanity, dresser, and...

Management response:

Delighted at your enjoyument. Also a good thought that a simple blender may serve guests better than the more complicated full fledged Cuisinart provided. Please pass this way again some day.and Thanks again for taking time to wrote your review Victoria

We booked this rental while visiting Vallejo to attend a high school graduation. The home is exactly as pictured. So picturesque and serene. The home was comfortable with all the conveniences if home. We arrived at night and woke to the most spectacular ever. Our host Victoria was gracious and kind. Family from the area came to visit us there...

Management response:

Thanks Regina. Our house in town of Port Costa ( next to Crockett ) is a hidden gem. So happy you all enjoyed it and hope you return

Additional Rate and Availability Information
Once a client is reserved I send a number of informative documents listing all contents of the house, best food shopping near by and restaurants in town or near by.
We recommend arriving before dark unless you are used to hill driving, The price you pay for the spectacular view is a steep driveway up to the top of Prospect Ave.
There is one guest parking space. If you are staying long enough to have guests over, you will need to direct them to use safe parking spaces by the Old Port Costa School on Canyon Lake Drive at Reservoir, then drive down and pick them up. This is near the bottom of Prospect Avenue at Canyon Lake drive.This is a super quiet residential neighborhood and all of us work with each other to keep the street clear for easy parking. Your guests may be fit, and want to walk up the 2 blocks of little stairs from the water level straight up to the top of the hill to your front porch. Then they can park in the area right by the Burlington Hotel. That very large lot bet...

About the neighbourhood
Prospect Avenue remains unchanged since the 1890s . Our house is the top most home on the street and appears in the earliest existing photographs of the town during its heyday as a busy grain exporting port. Then the 1906 eatrhquake destroyed the piers down at the waterfront. The street itself is quiet and has one of a kind homes and interesting gardens.There is a mall walkway straight down the hill to the town below where the historic Burlington Hotel and honey house coffee shop, Bull Valley Road House and the Warehouse Cafe all do brisk weekend business. Our village is a popular destination on weekends for San Francisco and Greater Bay area locals wanting and easy get away.

Two Barbary Coast style bars, 2 restaurants. Short bike or drive away- fish (no license required), picnic &...
