Our 1 Bedroom Furnished Apartment is charming and comfortable, with a Separate Entrance, and easy access to downtown Benicia.

Our Apartment includes a Kitchenette (no stove), Full Bath, TV's in both Living Room & Bed Room, and plenty of space and total privacy. Short drive to San Francisco and Napa/Sonoma.

The space

Our apartment is clean, modern, and comfortable.
Free & Secure High-Speed Wi-Fi included.

Features a Living Room + Separate Bedroom + Kitchenette (no stove) + Full Bath + Separate Entrance + Private Parking.

Includes Cable TV's in both Living Room and Bedroom, plus Microwave, Coffee Maker, Toaster Oven, and Refrigerator/Freezer.
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 access

As 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 guests

Dear 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

Other things to note

The 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 rooms are very well furnished and spacious. The location couldn't be better: 1 block from First Street and 1 block from the water. There are also many nice extra touches including snacks. Definitely a superior property.

Kathy & Barry were super hosts. I reserved with them about 10 minutes before I showed up. They were so accommodating and friendly. The home is just beautiful. The town is darling and you even catch a glimpse of Lady Liberty. Great view too!

We have stayed at Kathy, and Barry's on more than one occasion! It is so peaceful, and beautiful. We will be back. You will love the comfortable bed, the peace, and quiet, and the fact you are right next to a beautiful body of water. Restaurants are less than two min away. It's got it all.

My husband Barry, and I, love our town, and the way we can walk everywhere---along the waterfront, to restaurants or local shops, to several City Parks, or just for a stroll along our tree lined streets with Historic Homes and buildings such as California's First State Capital dating to the 1850's.
We also love to travel the USA as well as points all over the World. The BEST part is all the really great people we meet and the experiences we share with them. It is truly special and wonderful when people we meet come here to San Francisco to stay at our home and experience all the Bay Area has to offer. Napa & Sonoma Valley, the Russian River, Muir Woods, Carmel & Monterey, Lake Tahoe & the Sierra Nevada Mountains---it's amazing and our home is located at just about the geographic center of the entire San Francisco Bay Area.
We would love to help you plan an exciting and relaxing visit to our home, and one of the top destinations in the US and the world.....Wonderful San Francisco !!
Warm welcome to Benicia, San Francisco, and the Bay Area !!
Caio !!
