    Very clean, quiet. Large shower with unique tile work. Would definitely recommend & stay here again. Some things that need to be addressed are minor. Toilet rocks back and forth and periodically runs which is slightly annoying. Was missing curtains in the kitchen when we stayed. Put up a blanket on the rod for privacy. Wouldn't bother parking in the driveway. Supposedly you can park in driveway, but we almost got trapped one night and scraped our rental car on the fence getting out. 27 August 2017 - 21:57:00

    I'll start with the good on this property. Pretty much everything to do with this room is great. The decor, layout, access, location, etc. We loved the nautical theme and the room is beautiful. Lots of wood and the shower is amazing. Very large and the tile work is spectacular. We also loved the proximity to San Francisco. The owners when we saw them were very kind and accommodating. The bad is the noise! It's really the only downside to this location as everything else was wonderful. It's located directly below another residence and the noise is loud and constant. People were walking above us as late as 2:pm and babies crying as early as 6 a.m. We really only used this room to sleep in but if your considering using the room to relax in, choose another property! You can hear every footstep, talking (and whoever lives there talks very loudly), etc. Overall, as you can see from the review, we liked the room which is why we gave it 4 stars. Had we wanted to spend a lot of time in the room that could have easily been a 1 star. If you need a wonderful place to sleep, this is it! If you want to relax in quiet, look elsewhere. 23 August 2016 - 19:36:00

    Loved The Captains Quarters. We had everything we needed for our stay in Pacifica. The shower was amazing!! The bed was very comfortable. We could walk to the beach and did so everyday. Sometimes twice a day. We appreciated all the unique details of the inside and outside space. We could hear walking around above us, but it never interfered with what we were doing and it was quiet during the night. Would love to come back and spend more time in the area while staying here. 14 October 2017 - 02:28:00

    This was our first time staying at the captain's quarters, and it was amazing. The apartment in immaculate and incredibly stylish (think fancy concrete countertops, a 5-star hotel quality mattress, hand done mosaics in the shower). We walked down to nearby shops for dinner and strolled along the beach at night. The kitchen is top quality as well. Nothing bad to say about the place, would highly recommend a stay here. We live a mile north in Pacifica, but staying here still felt like a super vacation. We'll be back. thanks! 04 September 2014 - 04:48:50

    This property is most unusual (in the nicest way). Ideal for a couple, it has all mod cons. Owner and property manager couldn't do enough for us. Although within walking distance of shops, restaurants and beach, the road is very steep and unless you are fit and mobile, a car is essential (we are in our 70's). Pacifica is great, with some of the best eating houses we found during our stays at San Jose, Carmel and Pacifica. 16 October 2014 - 11:29:08

    My partner and I stayed here four nights and very much enjoyed it. It is within walking distance of the beach, great hiking trails (some are steep), a grocery store, and a few restaurants (recommend Devil's Slide Taproom for burgers and local craft brews). It's a bonus the bed is king-size and wow it was so comfortable! Note that this is the 1st floor of a two-story structure and the top unit is also rented. 24 January 2015 - 00:15:40

    I recently stayed at the Captain's Quarters and had a wonderful experience. From the moment I inquired about the rental until check out Ella was quick to respond and very considerate. When I arrived there was a welcome note, bottle of wine and beautiful purple flowers. The size of the place was perfect for my stay and it was very clean. Ella was even available to drop off more sheets. The location was walking distance to the beach, hiking trails, and many places to eat out or buy food to cook back at the rental. I was looking for a relaxing place to spend the weekend and was not disappointed. The fresh air and weather were just what I needed and I will be coming back to the Captain's Quarters in the future. Thank you Ella! 28 January 2015 - 18:28:45

    This was our second stay at Captains Quarters. It was clean, private and comfortable. We are in the process of relocating to the Bay Area and the location is perfect. We brought our two dogs and explored the local hiking trails. Perfect stay. Thank you Ella! 03 February 2015 - 12:06:19

    Before I even get into how amazing the decor and the location are, I'd like to address how accommodating Ella was. She was super quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had and she had great places to recommend. On top of that the property owner Dave is so sweet, and his dogs are the cutest thing! We ran into him, and he made sure our stay was going great. Also, a side note Dave did all the wood work inside and it is exquisite!! We brought our dog he loved it just as much as we did! Extremely dog friendly out there. It was private, quiet, and so so cozy. We for sure will be back! We loved every second of our trip!!! Thanks again Ella and Dave 16 February 2015 - 01:09:10

    We had a lovely time on our visit to Pacifica. The property was wonderful as were Ella and the owner, Dave, as earlier reviewers mentioned. The bedroom is very spacious and we had plenty of room for all our gear and equipment (outdoor hiking gear, duffels, computers). Our adult daughter kept her belongings in the main room and used the couch for sleeping. Ella provided sheets and blankets to make our daughter's stay as comfortable as possible - 20 year olds enjoy sleeping anywhere! I wanted to give it 5 stars but felt I had to be a little more reserved - my husband struggled with the internet service (he's a heavy user) and found the disruptions in service a little frustrating. We needed to go out and buy soap but that was really a small thing. Ella provided us with a bottle of wine and flowers, as I saw advertised in the listing, and it was a real treat for me. Dave, the owner, is obviously very talented. The property has such nice touches, from the "captain's quarters" theme to the woodwork to the tiled bathroom. All in all, a lovely place for my husband, daughter and I to spend three nights in Pacifica. 29 March 2015 - 02:36:55

    Large and roomy with great kitchen and view. Shower is big and has plenty of hot water. Be aware that upstairs is noisy if there are guests there when you are. Parking can be a challenge as the driveway is narrow. I have recommended owner put blinds on front window for privacy. 17 April 2015 - 01:18:56

    The space was perfect for us! We were in and out a lot and the ease of parking and overall space was fantastic! The shower itself is worth the rental. We loved every minute. We were close to Harding Park, just 10-15 minutes up the road and close to some amazing restaurants. The owners checked in to see if we needed anything and were available the whole time. It felt like a real vacation away from the city! 06 May 2015 - 15:57:39

    My husband and I stay here for our anniversary, the house was perfect, so clean, so unique, so pretty. The bed is so comfortable!!!!!! Best location ever ! We didn't have to drive at all. We wanted to BBQ that night so Ella was on top and provide us with one right away. The only bad thing is that there were People staying upstairs and you can hear everything !!!! It was pretty loud steps all night and morning, they also blocked our parking spot, but you can park on the road no problem . 24 June 2015 - 15:20:23

    We had a great time in the Captain's Quarters. My feelings were quite similar to those expressed in the reviews from Antonella and Sharon A. Ella was very helpful, the decor was creative and fun, access to restaurants, beach and hiking trails is outstanding. I enjoyed sitting in the Adirondack chair, reading, in front of the house. The fresh sea air was lovely. 06 July 2015 - 23:40:32

    We had a great stay in Pacifica. The living space was spacious and the kitchen was well equipped. There was early Sunday noise but we were getting up fairly early to head down south and didn't care. I'd stay there again. 29 August 2015 - 00:24:34

    Ella, the manager, was great to work with and we had a very easy process with renting and arriving at Captain's Quarters, however we were a little disappointed in the actual apartment. We have stayed in numerous VRBO rentals and this one is a bit neglected. It needs some refreshing by the owner and even though it is near the beach and in a fun, funky surfer area the apartment is a little worn. We enjoyed the spaciousness, the location and the convenience of parking but we would not stay here again. 11 June 2015 - 18:53:07

    Ella was a fantastic host to us, and the Captain's Quarters was just as fantastic. Perfect little place with lovely reclaimed woodwork throughout. As others have said, the shower is really great. There was a lot of care put into the unit. I wouldn't have minded a little more fully equipped kitchen (things like measuring cups/spoons were missing), but that is ultimately a minor annoyance, and not anything that affected our stay! Thanks! 01 June 2015 - 19:45:53

    This was the most delightful, and fun place for my husband and I to stay for 2 nights. We would have loved to have had more time here. Ella was absolutely wonderful as our host. She went out of her way many times to answer our questions and she made sure we were comfortable and had all the supplies we needed. The cottage was very clean, well maintained and had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. My husband would walk our lab in the mornings to the beach.YES! They are dog friendly and it is a short 5-10 minute walk to the beach. You will enjoy the decor and privacy. And the shower is a creative masterpiece. We had a perfect mini vacation in this absolutely delightful "Captains Quarters" This is not a modern apt, but for us it was perfect.My husband and I cant wait to return. Thank you for making our trip to Pacifica fun and enjoyable! 20 June 2015 - 15:53:54

    Great property in close proximity to all the best beaches, trails, and restaurants in Pacifica. The property is very modern with a little rustic charm... the owners were very nice and accommodating. Big plus for being dog friendly and the field and beach access at the bottom of the hill worked out great for our dog. Only downside for us was the lack of window treatments... the property is pretty private, but there was still a sense of exposure. Big plus was the bed and the shower... the bed was one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept on. Would definitely stay again in the future! 25 March 2015 - 05:28:27

    I stayed here for 40 days and had 0 problems. The house is cozy, quiet, and clean. Ownership / Management are awesome and very easy to get in touch with. That shower is the best! I'll definitely be back. 07 January 2018 - 23:04:00
