Perfect for a family reunion
We rented this beautiful home for a Thanksgiving family reunion and it was absolutely perfect. The home has 5 spacious bedrooms and a huge office area for when the hubby had to work. But what makes a home perfect is the kitchen and dining area, which this home did not disappoint. There was a long table that seated 16 with 4 chairs in storage if needed. In addition to this, there was a formal dining room that seated 8. We had 25 people and we all had a seat at Thanksgiving dinner. There was also a long counter that ran adjacent to the long table where we set out snacks, appetizers and drinks. All the table surfaces had glass tops on them so we never had to worry about damage to the furniture and clean up was easy. The lounge and TV room was right below the dining area so entertainment was visible.
Before arriving I read the one negative review and was a little worried about having Don and Krista being next door. But we only had 3 face to face interactions, first when we arrived and Don met us to give us the keys, Don came over to adjust the TV on Thanksgiving Day ( so appreciative of that) and when Don bid us farewell when we checked out and helped take out the garbage. Communication over the app and text was also very convenient. Don was very responsive and kind. He had a great motto in that if you have unopened items, he would store it in the pantry for the next guest. Nothing would need to go to waste. His kitchen had everything I needed for cooking. The only two things that would make this kitchen better is a bigger fridge ( we had so much food so it’s our fault) and the open stove top was hard to operate for us so we use the main stove top. Luckily there were 2 stove tops and microwaves!
The house is located in an upscale neighborhood and it was 2 minutes from the grocery store plaza and within 5 minutes to the highways. It sits in the middle of the happening Downtown Hayward area and the upscale shops of San Ramon and Alamo. Truly a perfect location.
For anyone who is weary, I ran our hidden camera checker and it came up clean.
Overall, we loved our stay and would rent again next time we have a reunion. The home is well cared for and is welcoming. You get a sense that there were many happy memories made in this home.
Thanks, Van for your great and detailed review. We were blessed to host your family for Thanksgiving week. Thanks for pointing out all of the things that delighted you and your family. We are so glad to hear that your family had a great time and it was clearly an ideal home for your family party. We appreciate how well you cared for our home. We look forward to hosting your family again for a future stay. Thanks again!
Large property - owner lives next door
We rented the West Coast Villa as part of our family reunion weekend and were excited to welcome our out of town family members to the Bay Area.
The house is a large (5000 sq ft) property with a functional kitchen and many spaces for lounging and entertaining. This multi-level unit has stairs leading to the living room and other spaces - if you are bringing older family members or those with limited mobility - note that the house is not wheelchair accessible. We saw many spiders throughout the house.
Upon check-in we realized that the owner lives next door and intended to be present during our entire stay. After giving us the keys and general tour, he continued to stay in the house as we were setting up for our event. We have never experienced this type of interaction when renting a property such as Home Away or Airbnb.
During the event, he sat in his garage with the door open and was watching as each of our guests arrived and left. He came over several times (prior to 10pm) to report that the children who were playing in the upstairs bedroom were too loud (his garage is directly above that area of the house).
The property has a very small, narrow backyard. We were surprised that it did not look like the picture online. The side patio is a nice size and has a hot tub. However, the side patio and backyard are accessible from the street - there is no fence. We found this out when the owner entered the side patio unannounced during our event and began interacting with our guests. We had multiple visits from the owner that evening, beginning a couple minutes after the 10pm curfew. We felt that the owner's manner of communication was rude and condescending at times, walking away while we were in the middle of conversation with him and putting his hands in our face to make his point. Many of our guests reported feeling uncomfortable by his presence and decided not to stay at the property that evening as originally planned.
Due to late arrivals from some of our family members traveling from LA, our party lasted longer than the contracted 3 hour limit and we paid additional fines due to the overage at 1.5x the original hourly rate.
While this house is nicely maintained and very large, it is not ideal for a family party.
We have hosted over 11,500 guests over a 14 year period at our Villa with consistent stellar reviews. It is unfortunate that this guest has chosen to write a retaliatory review after they were evicted from the property due to breach of contract. The 3 hour event that was supposed to be over at 8:45 p.m. went 3.5 hours overtime despite repeated warnings from us that they were in violation of the terms of the contract and Alameda County laws. We will not answer each of the false accusations written in this review as any reasonable person can see that it is an obvious attempt to defame my character and undermine the reputation of this world class Villa. But this review gives us the opportunity to underscore the fact that we care enough about our property and our neighbors’ rights to peaceful enjoyment of their property to hold violators accountable.
It was nice

Ideal para grupos grandes. La casa es muy amplia y dispone de todo lo necesario para una cómoda estancia. Perfecta distancia a San Francisco, 30m en coche. Muy recomendable.
Thanks for your great review. We enjoy having large groups at this home and with our additional home onsite. We've tried to think of everything to make a comfortable stay for our guests and we're so glad you appreciated that. Like you, most guests like that we are so centrally located in the San Francisco Bay Area for day trips to the city, the Redwoods, Napa Valley and more. Thanks for giving us a "Highly recommended" rating! We enjoyed having you at West Coast Villa. Don & Krista Robertson
