We are 1 block from Downtown Benicia, with a historic Main Street ambiance, shops, restaurants, bars and a waterfront that is truly exceptional.
Benicia is home to California's First Capital building in 1851, which is one block from our home, as well as the "final stop on the line" for the historic Pony Express, and the famous Benicia Arsenal, a US Military Fort dating back to the 1840's.
Benicia is a fabulous place to visit and enjoy, and the perfect place to use as your "Base Camp" to explore the World Class San Francisco Bay Area.
Our apartment is attached (1st level downstairs), but completely private and separate from our main house. You may come and go as you please, with a separate entrance.
We will be available on site to help you with anything you need---restaurants, stores, nightclubs and bars, directions, things to see and do, and little out of the way spots that Kathy & I like to visit that makes life in the Bay Area so charming and very special. Guest AccessAs our Guest, you will have our entire apartment that has a private, separate entrance.
There is free parking in our driveway behind our home, and on the same level as the apartment. You can also park on the street in front.
Also as our Guest, you may use our front and side porch. Please feel free to enjoy a glass of wine or a snack on our porch, and our really great view of the water. Interaction with GuestsDear Guests,
We are very happy to answer any questions you may have, and give you suggestions on what to do and where to go in Benicia (or the SF Bay Area/Napa/Sonoma), or local places to shop or eat, etc.
Please also refer to our Benicia Guidebook (in our Airbnb listing & also in the Red Folder on the TV table in the Living Room), for our recommendations for restaurants, places to go, and things to see and do in the area.
Please feel free to ask us anything---we really want to do our best to make sure your travel experience to Benicia & NorCal/San Francisco/Napa-Sonoma is as wonderful as it can possibly be !!
We sincerely hope you have a fabulous time with us, and experience all that Benicia, the Wine Country, and San Francisco has to offer.
Thanks very much,
Kathy & Barry The NeighborhoodWe are one block from downtown, can walk to supermarket, restaurants & bars, and Main Street Shops & Boutiques. Sit on a picnic bench and watch the sunset just 300 feet from our house. Enjoy the Sunset on the Bay, and the peaceful ambience of the Ocean Waves. Getting AroundTo see San Francisco, Napa/Sonoma, the Russian River, etc., you can drive, or catch the SF Bay Ferry (10-12 Minutes to Ferry Terminal) or the BART Subway (10-12 Mins to Concord Station).
Easy access to the entire SF Bay Area.
In Benicia, we are one (1) block from First Street, which is the Main Street of Benicia.
Numerous Restaurants, gift shops, boutiques & clothing stores, the Safeway, and sports bars, pizza spots, and classy night clubs are located all along First Street.
It's all just a 5-10 minute walk from our home. Other Things to NoteThe weather in Benicia is typically about 60F at night and 75-80F during the day in the Summer, and about 45-50F at night and 60-70F during the day in the Winter.
Classic San Francisco cool nights and warm days, except when it's NOT !! (LOL). Weather can change in the Bay Area very quickly, so dress in layers and be prepared.
Please be sure to bring a jacket for when "Mr. Fog" decides to roll in, and prepare for unexpected hot or cold in this area.
As W.C. Fields was quoted to say: "The coldest days I have spent, is a summer in San Francisco."
It's a fantastic climate we live in, but just prepare for hot, cold, and everything in between.
