I live in the SF Bay Area and work to oppose free trade agreements and privatization, promote fair trade and buen vivir. I surf and learn from documentaries. I have friends, I just don't trust the social networks with them.

Carleen was an excellent host and her apartment was exactly what we expected and more. Very convenient location to area shopping (and the beach... just a short walk away). I commuted to and from SF while staying there and the Colma BART station was an easy 7 minute drive to and from the apt.
The apartment is very comfortable and Carleen provided everything we needed to feel right at home. We were able to cook dinner there and in the morning walked to Pacifica Cafe for breakfast which was delicious and only a few blocks away (although there are supplies there to make your own coffee in the AM so you wouldn't even have to leave at all!) There are a handful of bathroom products there to use as well which was awesome as I forgot to bring shampoo/conditioner. The bed + living room areas were very comfortable with plenty of cozy blankets so you can enjoy a cool ocean breeze while staying toasty inside.
Carleen provided a great packet of information on the apartment as well as surrounding areas. I wish we had more time to do more exploring! I would highly recommend a stay at Carleen's place for folks in town on business and/or vacation or both!
Great visit! Carleen was a terrific host and the accommodation was clean, comfortable, and in a terrific location. Just a block from the ocean and you can hear the waves from the rooms.
We enjoyed morning and evening strolls along the shore. Grocery store is an easy walk. Pacifica is a central, easy location for exploring the Peninsula and a great base from which to explore the greater Bay Area. Carleen is a gracious host.
Carleen was a great host. While we didn't meet, she was quick to respond when texted and her apartment was clean and fully equipped. The great part was being steps from the ocean and being able to hear the waves from inside the apartment. The place was easy to find, the steps that Carleen left me to enter were clear and simple and we easily found parking on the street. An added bonus was being able to use her Netflix account during our stay :) Something to keep in mind is that I wouldn't suggest late night walks- especially with children, as the area has very little street lighting and some sketchy characters hanging around the pier. Other than that, thanks to Carleen for a very comfortable stay on our last night in California.
Wow! My favorite Pacifica stay so far. Carleen was a great host, very welcoming and made things very easy. She's got a bit of helpful information in the apartment and gives great recommendations.
The apartment is, in my opinion, a lot nicer than it looks. It's got everything you'll need and you can HEAR THE OCEAN. The place is easy access, I never had trouble finding street parking very near the entrance, the neighbors are all friendly and the complex is clean and quiet. There is sort of a mini arboretum between the buildings which is a nice touch. And you can hear the birds in the morning - if you wake up early enough :)
The neighborhood is... It's just a perfect little place. Everything you need within walking distance. From little cafes to Safeway. Some shops, too. And the beach... 1/2 block. You can hear it from the apartment and walk to it in about 2 minutes if you stop along the way to smell the rosemary!
Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Bang for the buck doesn't get any better than this. It'll always be my first choice for a Pacifica visit. I highly recommend it!
Had a lovely stay at Carleen's! She is a great host-always very quick to respond and made me feel very welcome. The apartment is great and just as pictured. You can wake up to the sounds of the ocean! Staying in Pacifica was perfect for easy access to San Francisco while still getting a taste of some really incredible coastline views. I was just here for 2 days, so I didn't explore too much, but there are plenty of cute coffee shops and restaurants near by, many of them walkable. I would stay here again no question.
Carleen was attentive from the start! She was very flexible with the check in/check out times. Safeway is just a short drive away. San Francisco is about 15-20 minutes away. We were in the Bay area for Fleet Week and Pacifica was a great alternative to staying in the city. Carleen’s apartment was equipped with everything we needed, such as kitchen utensils, bathroom amenities and even guidebooks.
Carleen was very friendly and accommodating. I loved the apartment.
It was clean and had all sorts of funky pictures and lighting. Very cozy and literally a 1 minute walk to the ocean. Great! I will definitely book again if coming through Pacifica. Thanks again! :)
Carleen was a very welcoming host. She really gave me some good advice on restaurants and ways to get around via bus and bart. The apartment was very cozy and located perfectly by the ocean and within walking distance of attractions. I especially enjoyed hearing the ocean at night. I would definitely visit again in the future and recommend it highly.
Carleen is a very nice host. Even she was on the eastcoast we could call her. The apartement looks in reality as in the pictures.
Carleen was a great guest, and even took care of our place during a huge ice storm while I was out of town--much appreciated. Welcome back any time.
Wonderful guests! Left the place very tidy, and it was very easy to communicate with Carleen.
Best guest ever. She helped turn our whole time together into a serendipitous string of amazing-ness. Immediately became a favorite member of the household, great conversation, perfect energy, great explorer, and rallied for a neighborhood 'favorite places' tour even though she was presenting at the Green Festival all weekend.
She's the kind of guest that makes you want to carve out some time - it would be a shame to have Carleen stay at your house and not have time to spend with her. Even if you did, you would probably end up with a super thoughtful handmade letter or small gift of appreciation. 5 stars.
Carleen was great nice vibe nice person I would welcome her back anytime.
Carleen was a great guest to have. She is very pleasant and tidy. Also
a great person to get travel tips from.
