Our vegetable garden seasonally provides organic fresh herbs and other items for breakfast. Two cats generally stay in my bedroom and a tiny dog may be visiting. Guests particularly enjoy the deck, bird feeders, easy parking, trails, and easy access through a "secret" back gate to grassy wild open space? Interaction with GuestsI enjoy my guests and learning about them. I also can respect your wishes, time and need for privacy. Breakfast choices are included. I am a retired arts education administrator with grown kids, and share the home. I am always busy and have traveled to parts of Europe, Central and S. America and Asia. I understand and speak french and some spanish. I live in the house with a renter. I am present during most visits. I can usually be reached by cell, text or email and if I need to turn off the cell you can leave a message. The NeighborhoodWonderful, quiet, safe neighborhood and great neighbors on a deadend street with ample street parking. Open space area behind the home and close to running and walking trails. A greenbelt trail leads to the seasonal pool and hot tub. Two blocks over is the public park with tennis courts, basketball, soccer fields, playground and access to cross county trails. It's a 10 minute drive to downtown and BART rapid transit to San Francisco, Oakland or Berkeley. Walnut Creek is known for great restaurants, shopping, movies, theater, and nightlife and has a free downtown shuttle bus. I'm about 3 miles from the entry to Mt. Diablo State Park, Borges Ranch open space and an East Bay Regional Park. Getting AroundUber is available. Bus service is not nearby, poor and infrequent. The BART rapid transit station to airports and free Walnut Creek downtown shuttle bus are 10 minutes (5-6 miles) drive by car. Less than 2 miles away are 3 shopping centers with restaurants, coffee shops, Whole Foods, Safeway, pharmacy, yogurt, hardware, bike store, salons, etc. The library is about 1 mile. Once downtown the free shuttle goes throughout the very popular area of numerous stores and shops, fountains, restaurants, cafes, bars and nightlife, a movie multiplex and theater, salons and other amenities. The home is a few blocks from the cross county trail, for bikers, hikers and runners. The 3500 ft high Mt. Diablo State Park is also quite close. There is a park, playgrounds and sports fields two blocks away. Close also are a brewery with tasting, an art center with one day workshops, vineyards and downtown tasting rooms, a wildlife museum and seasonal horseback trail rides. Other Things to NoteThe home is located in a micro climate that is generally sunny and warm and benefits from breezes as hot air rises up Mt. Diablo or comes down at night creating natural air conditioning. For very hot days there's one portable air conditioner and fans. We get little fog. I love Berkeley and SF and visit frequently (30 minutes to Berkeley, 45 or so to SF). My yard is low water consumption and with vegetables is outdoorsy and does not have a typical suburban look.

Downtown Walnut Creek has loads of free parking, excellent shopping (everything from Tiffany's to Target!) and I am pretty good at knowing where to get almost anything here. There are about 100+ restaurants - although we haven't tried them all we can definitely offer some yummy suggestions.

The SpaceStay on the sunny side of San Francisco and expericence California living at its best! Did you know San Francisco is cold and foggy in the summer, so much so that Mark Twain once said " the coldest winter I have ever spent was a summer in San Francisco"? Just half an hour away, however, behind the Berkeley hills, Walnut Creek is away from this strange micro climate effect from the Bay and you can truly experience summer. Here is what this home has to offer: - Proximity to San Francisco (30 mns), to the coast, Napa Valley (1 hour), Lake Tahoe, Yosemite (3 hours), and much more. -Close to BART transit (walking distance), downtown, shopping, restaurants, etc. -3 bikes at your disposal. - A pool to chill in after a day of sight seeing, a lovely peaceful backyard where you can sit out for your meals and relaxing, a fabulous kitchen opened to the outside for true indoor/outdoor living, direct access behind the house to miles of trails (bike to San Francisco -via a BART ride-, Mount Diablo, and much more!), free tennis courts, free beach volley court, and a great park with brand new playgrounds, all at a 5 minutes walk. Fabulous dining and shopping abounds, along with more low key options, the choice is yours! - Pool service and gardener - Optional pool fence ("Baby Barrier") when younger children are present. - One master bedroom with its own bathroom and a king bed, two bedrooms on the opposite side of the house sharing one bath and sleeping 6 total (one queen+ sofa bed in one room, two double beds side by side in the other). Guest AccessThe whole house and yard. Interaction with GuestsWe understand you are on vacation to relax and enjoy your family and friends, and we are very likely to be away when you come (this is our home so we will enjoy a vacation during your stay!). Rest assured you will always be able to reach us and we will have someone near by to handle emergencies. The NeighborhoodFeels like the countryside and yet is minutes to everything! We are on a small dirt unpaved lane, in a cul-de-sac. The freeway access is a two minutes drive, and downtown Walnut Creek a 5 minutes drive. Getting AroundBART station is walking distance. You can take Bart from the airport. Freeway entrance two blocks away. Driveway is big enough for 3 cars to park on it. Trail for biking and walking starts behind the house.

The SpaceNewly renovated historic house. There is nothing like it in Walnut Creek! Location is great - short walk to BART, downtown, and easy access to freeway on-ramps for those who are driving. Cable, utilities, some sundries, and bi-weekly housekeeping are included. There is off-street parking for one vehicle. There is a laundry room. The house underwent a complete renovation that includes double-paned windows, on demand hot water, new electrical and plumbing systems, and energy efficient appliances. The apartment has two roll out mattresses that can accommodate two additional people bunking in the living room on the floor. Guest AccessGuests have their own furnished apartment. Interaction with GuestsWe usually figure that guests are not visiting us but others so we tend to leave guests on their own. The NeighborhoodThe house is close to downtown and BART but it is still a little bit country. The house is next to an open field so there is a real sense of being devoid of neighbors. Getting AroundEasy....5 minute walk to BART. 10 min walk to shops and downtown. 20 minute walk to outdoors such as Larkey Park and Briones Regional Park. There is a very nice public outdoor pool, volley ball courts and tennis courts nearby. Other Things to NoteThere are three dogs on the property but guests will not interface with them much except maybe through fence. There is occasional noise associated with them but we try to mitigate their impact on the household as a whole.

    The SpaceI am a retired nurse, so comfort and serenity are the main features of my home. The rooms are large enough to move about freely, the bed is comfortable for a restful sleep, the amenities are extensive and well-stocked: free wi-fi, microwave oven, coffee maker/hot water maker with a variety of teas in addition to coffee; dishes, eating utensils, etc. there is a basket of dry cereals, oat meals, and pastries; the small refrigerator is stocked with juices, yogurt, fruits,and boiled eggs. You may also add your own items as needed. You will have free access to all of the living areas, including my small kitchen. Enjoy watching the hummingbirds or appreciate the view of our hills and trees from the deck. There is some traffic noise because we are so close to it, but closed windows make it virtually silent... Or you can pretend it is ocean surf! Guest AccessWe have a secure building with an elevator from the parking garage. Guest parking is available in all unnumbered spaces on the property; a parking pass will be issued on your arrival. If you are driving and can contact me on the morning of your arrival, I can reserve a space for you with my car; call me when you are close, and I will meet you in the parking lot behind the building at 1355 Creekside Drive. If you are arriving without a car, come to the main entrance, which is facing the breezeway to the rental office. Enter "301" on the keypad. I can " buzz you in". Take the elevator on the left to the 3rd floor and #301. We'll be happy to see you! You will have your own key for the all the entrances to the building, a key to the apartment, and a key for the gate to the pool and spa. Interaction with GuestsYou will have general access to the kitchen and all the other living areas of the apartment and surrounding grounds. I am home most of the time, so I will try to answer all your questions as they arise, or find the answer promptly. The NeighborhoodThe city is generally flat with some low hills that make walking and hiking a delight; there are trees everywhere, including some huge Heritage Oaks... beautiful! Walnut Creek has become a destination city in the area for its upscale shopping and wonderful cuisine of every culture. Parking is difficult but there are several garages to accommodate you in addition to the on-street metered parking. Getting AroundNavigating downtown by car is not for the faint of heart, as the city long ago outgrew its 2-lane Main Street. There are buses and shuttle trolleys circulating to help you get back to your car, and side streets take most of the through traffic. There are several car rental agencies and taxis. The free bus line that services our area runs every twenty minutes Monday through Friday with a stop at the corner. Its destination is the BART station, but there are stops along the way. Other Things to NoteWe get afternoon sun that can be quite warm. There is an air conditioner in the living room as well as a quiet fan in every room. I don't watch much TV, so you can keep up with your favorite shows if you'd like. Most music styles and talk shows are fine; there is only basic (U-Verse 200) programming. There is a one-time incidental fee of $25.00 for cleaning and restocking.

Recycling everything-no trash service- along with not running the washer or dishwasher until full are a few efforts to lower the environmental impact. If you are a perfectionist this funky laid back (wish to be green) place is not for you. If you like great value then book away! 5 stars does not mean perfect. It means the listing is accurate. Open stairs and home are far from child proof. Guest AccessHome, garden, double driveway, quest and street parking. Seasonal pool. Interaction with GuestsEasy to reach via text. The NeighborhoodThis area has a reputation, backed up by crimemapping, to be safe, safe, safe. I have lived here for many years and do not hesitate to take long midnight walks. Imagine. Getting AroundBuses, Bart, taxis, Uber or Lyft can take you anywhere. It is a suburb so it is designed around car travel. There are many good car rental agencies close by and ample off street parking. Other Things to NoteWalnut Creek is noted for wonderful weather, fantastic dining, parks and great theatre.

    The SpaceAfter 25+ years in the hotel business and some exceptional AirBnb visits, my wife and I were inspired to share our hospitality by offering a first-class experience. We have spent the better part of a year renovating our guest cottage with the sole objective of providing comfortable, peaceful and well-equipped accommodations. This 720 square foot bungalow-style cottage located behind our home was built in 1931 and features polished concrete floors, a lighted redwood-beamed living area with brick fireplace (sorry, no fires - candles only), recessed lighting with offset lighting accents and warmly painted linen-colored walls. The alcove just off the entry offers a Pottery Barn desk and bookshelf unit should you need to spread out and get work done. USB outlets are also conveniently located on plugs throughout the cottage. The living area has a plush loveseat/couch and leather chair along with a 42-inch flat screen HDTV complete with full cable service, including OnDemand and Premium channel offerings. There is also a Roku allowing self-login access to streaming channels (Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, Vudu, etc). The bathroom features designer travertine wainscot walls, shower/tub combo and heated tiled floors along with a pedestal sink, large skylight and great lighting options. A single step up from the living area leads you to the private bedroom with lots of natural light. The bedroom features stylish seagrass flooring, recessed lighting, a full size dresser and closet with full length mirrors. Your rest is assured in the new queen-sized bed with 700 thread count sheets and a comfy plush comforter-duvet. The light and bright European kitchen has a honed-quartz countertop with an inset dual-burner cooktop, Italian-marble coffee bar and state-of-the-art appliances; an undercounter two-drawer fridge, automatic pull-drawer microwave, Breville countertop oven, Keurig coffee maker and French press. This cottage is truly your well-equipped home away from home. Guest AccessProperty. This guest cottage is one of two that are located behind our home.
