The SpaceOur cozy sanctuary stays comfortably cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The welcoming decor will charm your spirit. There's plenty of space to spread out and enjoy yourself. Guest AccessThe apartment has a full kitchen (minus a stove), washer/dryer, and TV/DVD with plenty of entertaining videos. The bedroom is set up for two people, and the living room contains a small memory foam couch/double futon that's perfect for one or two additional people who don't mind being cozy together. There is a full bath, stocked with soaps, shampoos, and a blow dryer. If you're not out exploring, it's the perfect place for rest and relaxation. We just added a downstairs deck with a barbeque and table and chairs and a separate, semi-private area with a hot tub! The weather is usually perfect for an evening soak. You are also welcome to venture to the upstairs deck to enjoy the beautiful view of the water. And if we are already there (which we often are), please join us! Interaction with GuestsWe love to meet our guests over some hors d'oeuvres or a glass of wine whenever possible. We will certainly make the effort to get to know you if time permits. We both work regular typical hours, but most evenings one or both of us are present to help you with whatever you may need. Or, if you want privacy, we are happy to let you enjoy your stay without unnecessary disturbance. The NeighborhoodOur neighborhood is the perfect blend of safe and quiet with close proximity to downtown. It is rich with nice walks and great views. The waterfront is a short 15 minute stroll through the historic and welcoming downtown. Getting AroundIf you are coming by car, there is plenty of free street parking. The City of Benicia and Solano County provide inexpensive public buses for travel in and around the area. The bus stop is a short walk away. The nearby Vallejo Ferry is an excellent way to get into San Francisco from here. There is also a train in and out of Martinez, which is just across the Carquinez Straits. The nearest BART stations are Concord or Walnut Creek. If we happen to be coming through the area, we may be able to pick you up from the train or BART station. Other Things to NoteThere are many wonderful sites to explore in the North Bay. In addition to nearby San Francisco and wineries, there is great local music and art, hiking, and bicycling. The Cities of Benicia and Vallejo host many fun community activities year round. There are tennis courts, yoga studios, community pools, and paddle sports for those who crave physical activities. Our apartment is a one bedroom apartment best suited for two people. However, we can accommodate up to two additional people on the futon in the living room. We charge an additional $25 per person after the first two people per night. The additional person charge is also added to weekly and monthly rates.

Our apartment also features comfortable sofa furniture in the Living Room, and a Queen Size Bed in the Bedroom. Plus Free & Secure High-Speed Wi-Fi. 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.

The SpaceYour bedroom has the best view in the house.! It is a large spacious room with a comfy queen size bed. There is also a single bed in the computer room. A sliding door leads out into the garden .Just down the hallway is your own bathroom , which has recently updated. You can rent the whole house which has 3 bedrooms and accommodates 5 people. Please ask me about renting the whole house or look up "View across the Straits" for pricing and availability You have access to the whole house. You can watch TV or lounge in the sunroom,or sip wine on the overhanging deck. I will be available if needed and can help with any inquiries you might have about restaurants shops etc in the area. I also am widely travelled having come here from the UK originally. It is a very pleasant neighborhood nestled into the hills yet very convenient for the shops, restaurants, hiking and biking trails and access to freeways. The freeways can take you to all the the other interesting sites around the Bay Area. There is a bus that can take you to the BART station, but having a car would be very useful to get to the ferry to San Francisco, or take a trip up to Napa or a trip to the ocean or a 2 1/2 hour journey to lake Tahoe Where ever you are going Benicia is a MUST stop on the way there, and once here you may not want to go any further. Guest AccessThe whole house. Interaction with GuestsIt is my home so naturally you are invited to come and chat and hang out with me but you also are able to be by yourself and relax and do your own thing in my home. If you want to rent the whole house this can be arranged The NeighborhoodMy neighborhood is away from the hustle and bustle on a nice quiet street yet a 2 minute walk to the Southampton Shopping Center . Take your car to First Street Benicia,(5 minutes away) and stroll through the antiques shops, stopping at the many bars and restaurants. Getting AroundThere are public buses that can take you over the bridge to the BART station, or the main train line in Martinez, but to be honest most people use their cars. Our bridges have tolls; $5 (you only have to pay one way) Other Things to NoteMy dog Charlie will be around and he just loves guests , and all guests really seem to like having him around also!

You have access to the whole house. You can watch TV or lounge in the sunroom, or sip wine on the overhanging deck. It is a very pleasant neighborhood nestled into the hills yet very convenient for the shops, restaurants, hiking and biking trails and access to freeways. The freeways can take you to all the the other interesting sites around the Bay Area. There is a bus that can take you to the BART station, but having a car would be very useful to get to the ferry to San Francisco, or take a trip up to Napa or a trip to the ocean or a 2 1/2 hour journey to lake Tahoe Where ever you are going Benicia is a MUST stop on the way there, and once here you may not want to go any further.

The NeighborhoodIt is a very safe quiet neighborhood yet within walking distance of a great shopping area with a couple of good restaurants and supermarket. Only 5 mins away is the historical town of Benicia on First Street where there are many exciting shops and restaurants and historical sights. Getting AroundThere is a bus that can take you to the railway station and the ferry but it is best to have a car to get around . If you don't want to drink and drive in Napa get Uber taxi's to Napa where you can pick up a wine tour . Other Things to NoteMy home is well situated for getting to all the tourist sights yet it feels as if you are on vacation far from big cities and you can stroll along the paths that run beside the water side into the quant town walking among the Victorian homes in that area of Benicia.

            Benicia has a main Street type small town atmosphere, with historic charm. It is safe and quiet. Home has a lot of character, full kitchen and Laundry. CLEAN, comfy beds, Bed options 2 twins 2 king bed in 3 rooms, clean home and fresh linens. Internet and cable TV, games, books. BBQ and table seating in the patio. Close to I 80 and 680. 38 miles to San Francisco, 24 miles to Napa Valley, 130 miles to Monterey & Carmel California, 12 miles to Concord, Walnut Creek is just beyond Concord, Yosemite 210 miles, Lake Tahoe 174 mile. The Mountains are about 2.5 to 3 hours away great skiing, hiking, bike riding, lake, waterfalls, horse back rentals... and the coast is less than an hour away Beautiful scenic drive up and down the coast. Just a note to bring jackets summer and winter the weather in California can range a lot in a few miles. Winter months are our rainy season, but we get periodic fog by the coast in summer. I am new at this host rental business, but I assure you I have taken extra measures for your comfort and paid extra attention to details that will help make your stay a great experience. I have local restaurant menus, maps, local activities... My prices are very reasonable, but not the service. Favorite places to go: Down Town Benicia is a favorite historic patriotic town. A Main St Town, has weekend events such as music and art festivals, classic car shows, farmers market... The second capital of California with the Capital building museum, Yacht club, waterfront fishing, shops, salons, spas, gym, cafes, antique shops, restaurants, chapel, play ground... and public pool and tennis next block. All of these are in walking distance. Carmel by the Sea, so quaint, European Type town where there are no street addresses. Charm everywhere. One of California's Missions still in service there. A stroll down Ocean Drive will take you by shops, cafes and restaurants and down the street to a sand hill with the Pacific Ocean at the bottom where you can sit and watch dolphins, sea lions and occasional migrating whales. Definite place to spend the entire day or weekend. Just next town is Monterey, and Pacific Grove, lots of nature all around you, deer are comely seen at the golf coarse and in the neighboring streets, water wade pools to explore by the shore. State of the art aquarium, restaurants, whale watching boat tours in the mornings. I recommend The Grotto restaurant at the boardwalk, great food, never had a bad experience there. San Francisco Speaks for it self. One of my favorite city in the world. Napa Valley Wine country, mineral spas, early morning balloon rides... gorgeous view, wine tasting, restaurants... Near by Sonoma has another mission, 18 century army barracks museum, restaurants, deli, bakery, shops and boutiques... Lake Tahoe The place where they filmed the TV series Bonanza. The reason for that series was to promote color TV. It's easy to see why. The lake is crystal clear with sandy shoreline and beautiful evergreen mountain. The smell of the pines are wonderful. Great skiing and winter sports as well as beaches, and water activities in summer. Bike trails go for miles, horse back rentals at a few locations. It is mostly mountain wilderness, but there are a few casinos on both shore. Lake Tahoe is located on the border of California / Nevada. Yosemtie This is a jewel that started the National Park preservation. Very different from Tahoe. Yosemite Valley has tall water falls some can be seen from the road, but a few are hidden away between the hills and just a couple hour hike. Camping tents are available in Curry Village where there is a cafeteria, ice cream shop and nightly amphitheater. There are free shuttles in the valley as well as tour buses that car show you the sights. Glacier Point is farther up at the south rim of Yosemite, but it's a must see in summer only, winter is closed due to snow. A few miles beyond that are the Sequoias. These tall trees are the oldest living trees in the world and only found in California. Some are over 2000 years old. It feels like a cathedral of nature to be among them.

            The SpaceHouseboat living is very different from sailboat, or even powerboat living. It feels much more like a condo on the water. There is very little noticeable rocking, even during stormy weather. In fact my friends who have visited, call it Ambien Cove, due to the restful sleep they have. The space for rent is the lower level. It has a roomy sitting area with plenty of closet space. The separate bedroom is what is called in boating, a cuddy. This cuddy has a queen sized bed, windows and shelving. The bedroom ceiling is 5 feet tall, so no standing. I hope you can tell from the pictures what I mean. I also have another cuddy upstairs that could be available for additional sleep space. You have your own bathroom, with a non-marine toilet (believe me, that's a plus) Due to water restrictions, I ask that guests use the shower at the top of the ramp. This is very close to my boat, keyed and private. Of course, this being a boat, I steal storage where ever I can and in this case I used the guest shower! I have two indoor/outdoor kitties, who run the place. They have their own kitty door and come and go as they please. One is an attention hog and will introduce herself as soon as you get on the boat. The other you'll rarely see. The front porch with all the plants, and beautiful view is a favorite in warm weather. The upper deck is the perfect place to watch one of Benicia's famous sunsets. Guest AccessA key is needed to get on and off the dock, and therefore the boat. I'll always meet you when you arrive to give you a tour. The dock is a true community and all of the live-aboards take special care of each other and their guests. You have full use of the kitchen, living areas and top deck. A favorite activity is bundling up on top of the boat and light the fire pit while the marina quiets down. Interaction with GuestsI am always excited to do anything I can to enhance the experience for the guest. I love to cook, and can quote prices for appetizers or wine. The NeighborhoodThe marina is a unique place. Ten percent of the boats have live-aboard status like mine. Sitting on either of my decks you'll see the myriad of dog walkers, most of whom wave, walking the marina. The downtown of Benicia is only two blocks away, an easy walk to restaurants, bars and shops.
