Our 3 bedroom two bath cottage has a room available with two twin beds. We have three outdoor rescue dogs that are calm and sweet who stay in our massive backyard. Our home is a 10 minute walk from the Plaza which is quaint and safe. Along with my daughters we love to garden and walk the Lafayette Reservoir. Lafayette is a small town nestled amongst trees, deers and wild turkeys. Our open kitchen policy opens into the patio with a Bar-b-que and cozy seating during the warmer months. We are only 15 minutes away from Berekley, CA when taking the public train and 30 minutes away from San Francisco. I love to cook and so hot food is always simmering in a crock pot and then whipped up when I'm home from work.

The SpaceThis room was originally the master bedroom before the previous owner added on to the house. Our typical guest has grandkids or children that live in our area, is doing work at one of the East Bay companies on a short contract or is traveling from just about anywhere in the world and is looking to be close to SF at a very reasonable price. We're a family home so this room does get some ambient noise from the house. LOCATION: Our home is nestled in a quaint town called Lafayette in the East Bay of San Francisco. We live right next to the Lafayette bike/walking trail which goes between Lafayette and Moraga and makes for a lovely stroll. Grocery Stores (Trader Joes and Safeway), drugstore (CVS), coffee shops (local, Starbucks, Peets, etc.), boutiques and many lovely restaurants within 2 miles (3-5 minute drive). We are a very short drive to Orinda, Moraga and Walnut Creek for more shopping and restaurants - and on the same road as St. Mary's College (3 minutes). We are a 30 minute drive or train ride to San Francisco, and a 15 minute drive to Berkeley and Oakland. Lafayette Bart Station is 2 miles away (5 minutes). Road trips to various beautiful Northern California locations are also convenient - San Francisco (30 minutes), Napa & Sonoma (less than 1 hour), Marin, Santa Cruz (1.5 hours), Half Moon Bay (1.25 hours), Carmel & Monterey (2 hours), Yosemite (3-3.5 hours), Lake Tahoe (3 hrs away.) ROOM: The room is large with bay windows, a large, sunken bathtub and double sink (no shower, but depending on circumstances, we can possibly arrange access to separate shower in main home). This room was the original master bedroom in the house before renovations and can comfortably sleep 2 people in the Queen bed (with featherbed!). It has a private entrance into the backyard. We will provide key to separate entrance for easy and private in/out access. In addition to the cozy Queen bed with wooden frame, we also have custom shelving, which houses a TV with cable as well as a host of books to read while in our home. Drawers are empty and available for your clothes, as well as a walk in closet with hangers. Wireless internet is also available. Extra treats: free parking, no cleaning fee. Light kitchen privileges (like milk in fridge) *may* be arranged for long term guests, but not full kitchen access or cooking. However, there are plenty of affordable restaurants nearby. AVAILABILITY: If the room looks available on the Calendar on Airbnb, it's available! There's no need to write and ask if it's available, unless you just want to say "hi." In which case, we'll be happy to say "hi" back. :) Guest AccessGuests have their own private entry around the back of the house. Interaction with GuestsWe love greeting our guests when they check in if that works for them. If not we typically get to meet the following day. We are happy to have as much interaction that's needed to make our guests comfortable but also respect their privacy. The NeighborhoodVery quiet neighborhood. We only have neighbors on one side of the house. This room faces our backyard with an eye level view of the hill behind our home. Getting AroundMost guests have their own car or a rental to get around. There's a beautiful walking/jogging/biking path 100 yards from our house that leads to downtown one way and for many miles the other. Other Things to NoteWe have a small ish (30 LB) Golden Doodle who loves people that guests may see on occasion in the backyard. He likes to say hello but spends most of his time in the house.

The SpaceMy home is located in a wonderful town called Lafayette in the East Bay of San Francisco. The sought out neighborhood of Upper Happy Valley. Even though we are only 25 minute drive to San Francisco we escape the SF summer fog and enjoy lots of sunshine. The beautiful Lafayette reservoir is within walking distance along with plenty of hiking and running trails. The town has great grocery stores (Whole foods, Diablo Foods, Trader Joes and Safeway) Starbuck's and Pete's coffee along with a few boutique coffee shops are all within a few minutes drive from the house. We have wonderful restaurants and cafe's in town.

The outdoor pool area is very private and fenced. The pool has a motorized cover with a key to unlock and wind back the pool cover. Also outdoor dining table/chairs and lounge chairs are provided plus a full size BBQ for grilling and a gas firepit for relaxing by the pool. Please discuss your intentions of using the pool with Katie, our house manager, prior to your arrival. We don’t automatically heat the pool as all our guests don’t have a desire to use the pool. Plus, in the summer months, it is quite refreshing to leave the pool unheated. If you would like the pool heated during your stay, there would be an additional $25 per night added to the rental rate. In the winter months, November through February, it would be an additional $75 per night to heat the pool.
