Join me in my one level fully modernized three bedroom home in Benicia.
It is nestled into the hills overlooking the Carquinez Straits in a very quiet safe neighborhood yet convenient for the local shops and supermarket and freeway on ramps.

The space
Your 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. 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 access
The whole house.

Other things to note
My dog Charlie will be around and he just loves guests , and all guests really seem to like having him around !

Location

Benicia, California, United States

My 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.

I have travelled and lived in different countries most of my life but over the last 6 years I have returned to my beautiful home here in Benicia to enjoy living closer to my three married sons and my grandson. I have always worked with children, counseling runaway teenagers working in the foster care system as a social worker, teaching English as a foreign language and helping students become better teachers in schools. I was a primary school teacher and also worked with handicapped children as well I am therefore a very laid back casual open individual, who loves having my home full of friends and family and everyone pitches in and helps to create a loving caring atmosphere. It will be fun chatting to people who are traveling and so look forward to meeting you all soon. I came originally for the UK so don't let the English accent put you off!! Cheers Helen
