About this listing
We are located in the beautiful Mare Island in Vallejo, CA. This safe and quiet neighborhood is about 20 minutes from the Wine Country (Napa/Sonoma) and 40 minutes from SF. We have two guest bedrooms and can comfortably accommodate up to three people (or four a bit snugly).
This listing is unique because the neighborhood is just gorgeous and peaceful. In addition, we are located close to Napa, several golf courses, Six Flags, several Outlets, Sonoma (Sears Point) Race Track, and San Francisco. A truly sweet location.
We also have free parking!
Guests have access to the private bedrooms, bathroom, half bath, kitchen, living room, laundry area, and garage (where we keep the bicycles, elliptical, yoga mat, weights, etc). In sum, pretty much the whole house. We also have a grill outside and guests can barbecue - if desired.
If we are receiving more than 2 guests, the additional guests (up to 2 more, total of 4 people) can use a second guest bedroom which has a futon (as pictured) and an optional airbed.
Interaction with Guests
We love to chat and to make new friends, but will respect your space and privacy.
What I love about the neighborhood is how friendly the neighbors are. This place is very pretty, safe and quiet. Mare Island is an old naval base, so there's a lot of history to it. We also have the Mare Island Golf Club, the oldest course west of the Mississippi.
We are located across the Bay from San Francisco.
There is a Ferry and a bus that connect Vallejo to SF. You can catch them at the Ferry Terminal, less than 5 minutes from our location.
Napa is just a short drive away (about 20 minutes). Driving to The City takes about 40 minutes without traffic.
IMPORTANT: Please note that we do not have public transportation on the island, so we highly recommend that you have a vehicle available.
You can park for free at my job in Oakland and take Bart to SF (a 10-minute walk to the West Oakland station). This way you'll save on the Bay Bridge toll and won't have to worry about parking in SF (it can be pricey and difficult to find a spot). Just ask us about it.
