Little Blue House Big On Personality
Location was my main reason for choosing the "Little Blue House," but it turned out to be so much fun and so much more than I anticipated. It came equipped with everything I could want ... wifi, cable tv, a fully equipped kitchen, lots of towels, separate bedroom and half bath upstairs, futon and full bath downstairs, fruit trees in the back and a wide balcony with super views of the bridge and water upstairs in the front. Parking was right outside the front door. The owner responded promptly and was easy to work with. The unit manager lives right next door and answered my questions quickly and graciously. Being from San Diego where our topography is generally flat, I was a bit challenged at first by the steepness of the Crockett streets. But my daughter who lives in the area assured me I would be just fine and I was. I discovered if I turned south off Pomona onto 6th Ave., I could reach the Little Blue House using only 90 degree uphill left turns which my little Hyundai handled with ease. Turning south off Pomona onto 2nd Ave. requires a 180 uphill u-turn in one spot which was manageable but not as fun as the other route. Don't miss the Valona deli right down the hill on Pomona which has SUPER sandwiches. And don't hesitate to get groceries or snacks at the J&L Market a bit further east on Pomona. The market had a great selection of items and the BEST artisan bread. We were busy the 2 days of the week the Crockett Museum was open (Wed & Sat. 10am-3pm). I wanted to find out more about the history of the C&H Sugar plant. Maybe next time. I would definitely recommend the Little Blue House and stay here again next time I'm in the area.
