The Space

We are right near Alamo and Danville both of which have great shopping, nightlife and restaurants. Berkeley and Oakland are 15 minutes away.

We are a 6 minute drive from the Walnut Creek BART station. San Francisco is a 25 minute Bart ride to downtown.

Amenities of the studio/cottage:

All new fixtures and immaculately clean. The space is open with vaulted ceilings. It is completely separate from the main house and has its own entrance and patio. It’s behind a gate at the back of the property to ensure safety. Sleep well on a queen bed with a pillow top. There’s a full size beautiful kitchen with range, oven and microwave, full bathroom, washer/dryer, air conditioning. There is a dining area and closet. 32 inch TV with Comcast cable with premium channels. Reliable Wi-Fi internet is included.

Parking is free and right outside the entrance.

Not suitable for young children because we have a large, uncovered pool which isn't gated.

It's a very quiet neighborhood and private with a large backyard. Don’t be surprised if you see a deer greet your arrival. Great alternative to staying in San Francisco if you want to explore Northern California, Napa/Sonoma are less than an hour away, Santa Cruz is an hour and a half, Mendocino is 3 hours, Carmel is 2 hours. Lake Tahoe is 3 hours away.

Our monthly price of $1700 is based on a 4 week period.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • I had such a great stay in this cottage. It was exactly as shown in the photos. The interior is beautiful and the air conditioning keeps the place very cool. There was plenty of space and it was so nice to have a full kitchen at my disposal. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in the East Bay. Michelle was very attentive and made sure that I had everything I needed. Great stay!

  • Michelle was/is very profession, friendly and helpful. Neighborhood is upscale with pleasant surroundings. Separate from house with private interest. Cottage is compact but very complete with its offerings. As advertised and quite enjoyable.

  • Michelle's studio guest cottage is perfect in every way. I was there on business and it had everything that I needed. Michelle was very gracious and very responsive.

    Her studio is very private and set back from the house. It was very clean and the bed was super comfortable.

  • Once we found the place it was delightful - a very comfortable, clean, modern studio flat, in what is probably a lovely garden in summer time (we came in January). Well equipped kitchen, laundry etc, and very considerate and responsive host. Off-street parking. Excellent all round.

  • It was a wonderful space with lots of privacy. Michelle and her husband made the stay really wonderful and we could not ask for more. The neighborhood was quiet and we were able to take nightly walks which were great.

    December 2013
  • Michelle and her husband warmly welcomed me the evening I arrived. I was very easily acquainted with the studio and how to reach anyone, at any time should I assistance. The beautiful studio soon warmed up and was so very well equipped with a comfy bed, wonderful appliances, pots and pans and plates/flatware. In a beautiful setting, it was easy to relax and unwind. I found the location to be say access to highways/freeways for the traveling I had to in the area. And there was wonderful access to great grocery options as well as restaurants. Wonderful hosts.
