The Space

Lovely executive home. Beautiful guest room for two, next to a private bath. Large pool and deck for those days that you just want to relax. Breakfast is included in your stay, and we always invite folks to feel free to raid the 'fridge! Breakfasts or dinners can be served by us, for an additional fee, if desired. Please arrange this in advance.

Stay here to see the quintessential small American town! We are happy to share our lovely Main Street with its many fine shops and restaurants. There are several local live performance theaters, and a large shopping mall, as well.

Take BART to San Francisco for all major events, or just for touring. The trip is 40 minutes to the San Francisco waterfront. Or take BART to Oakland, then take the ferry boat ride into San Francisco. Both are fun! We are happy to drive you to BART if needed. It's only about 10 minutes from the house.

We are - literally - less than 10 minutes from the world-renown Livermore Valley Wine Country, with it's wonderful scenery and great wineries. It's nice to come back after a day of wine-tasting, and relax by the pool!

Pleasanton is also the home of the Alameda County Fair Grounds. If your event is being held at the fairgrounds, we are about 12 minutes from there.

The home is non-smoking, but you may smoke on the back deck.

A well-trained and nicely behaved pet is welcome.

Guest Access

There is no TV in the guest room, but you are free to watch in the family room.

Interaction with Guests

We love to visit and get to know our guests. We also realize they may want more privacy. We respect both!

The Neighborhood

Our particular neighborhood is up-scale, and very quiet. Our past guests have all commented on their appreciation of the quiet, especially at night.

Getting around

We have in-driveway parking. If you want to take BART into SF, we're always happy to drop you off!

Other Things to Note

There is a fun sports bar in town, if that's your pleasure.

  • Our visit was simply wonderful. Hosts MJ and George graciously met us at the door and made us feel right at home. With Hawaiian music softly playing in the background we easily found our mutual love for the islands. I loved sitting by the outdoor fountain to read and watch all the birds. Breakfast was bountiful and our room was private and very comfortable. A perfect place to explore Livermore and Pleasanton from. We'll be back!

  • MJ and George were great hosts! They really want their guests to feel welcome. They are quick to respond to texts and phone calls and made coordinating everything a breeze. I highly recommend them.

  • Airbnb has been a wonderful alternative over corp hotels and my time with MJ and George was no exception. Sunny CA never felt so good as I had just arrived from very long Midwest winter. Their beautiful home sits atop the picturesque community of Pleasanton CA, I felt more like being on vacation than a work trip. MJ and George both graciously greeted me at the door with friendly and welcoming smiles. It did take long and we got to know each other with a glass of wine poolside in their garden. My room was nicely appointed and sits in a private wing of the home, very comfortable king size and my choice of pillows. About a mile or so away is the lovely downtown area, packed full of dining options and boutique shops. I learned that BART does service this distant San Francisco town and will be something to consider on my next trip! Great Value if your looking for excellent accommodations and new friends.

  • If you're looking for that "golden nugget" while traveling on business this is your place! It's like throwing a little vacation into your work week. MJ and George pride themselves in being amazing hosts and making you feel like family. Waking up to birds singing and walking to a kitchen filled with sunlight for your morning coffee is a real treat! A beautiful home in the hills of Pleasanton.

  • It was a short business trip to Pleasanton, but what a treat to spend it with MJ and George instead of in a stuffy hotel. They are two of the most genuine people I have met in a long time -- from the timely communication to the generous little extras, they provided the best ABB experience I could have hoped for. They bent over backwards to make my stay comfortable, but also gave me the space I needed to do the work I was there to do. They are engaging conversationalists and truly care about getting to know the people they host. I'm already looking for an excuse to go back to Pleasanton just to visit them. Thanks for a great stay!

  • MJ and George were absolutely wonderful! They greeted me at the door and offered me wine and we chatted for hours. Their home is wonderful and they were generous and inviting with everything. I felt like I was visiting good friends that I hadn't seen in years. :)

  • Staying with MJ and George was my first experience with Airbnb and if all stays are like this stay I am a lifer with Airbnb! Mj and George were perfect hosts, they were fun to get to know and even made me dinner my first night! Their home is beautiful and my room was very private so I could be alone if desired. It was too cool to use the pool but I did enjoy their deck and lush back yard. I have never been to Pleasanton before and being able to stay in the community, not a freeway hotel, made my experience perfect!

As corporate wage-slaves for many years, my husband and I are now retired. We like to meet new people, and especially younger folks. It's fun, and keeps life interesting. I do a lot of volunteer work, and have a one-day-a-month job. We love to golf (very badly), and do so once or twice a week, if possible. We get to Hawaii as often as possible, and to Nashville, TN to see our granddaughter at least every three months.
