We recently spent a week at the Coastside Retreat in El Granada and could not have been happier. The 2 bedroom, 1 bath flat was well appointed, comfortable and extremely clean. The kitchen was bright and spacious and well appointed for making meals. While located in a quiet neighborhood, a convenience store is a block and a half away.
This ground floor unit of a duplex is walking distance from Surfer's Beach and Pillar Point Harbor, so there were plenty of restaurant and entertainment choices nearby. It is also close to Quarry Park and hiking trails in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.
We appreciate that the owners, Mary-Anne and Brian, (who live in the upstairs unit) added a personal touch by placing fresh flowers and orchids in the duplex before our arrival. They also left books about the area and local magazines to browse, along with a number of card and board games. The check-in and check-out process was easy and well-detailed in the Guest Binder left on the kitchen table.
I highly recommend this VRBO rental. We left happy and refreshed.
