We have a studio in Concord attached to our home. Our home is a 15 to 20 minute walk to BART (transit) and Todos Santos Square. There are also bus stops at the end of the street. We are next to an extensive regional trail system and 5 minute walk to Open Space.
The unit is furnished w/ kitchenette, private basic bath (shower,toilet and sink), private entrance, basic cable TV, and standard wifi. Our home is on a quiet tree lined street and has a large landscaped yard. We do have 1 cat and 1 maltese poodle, although they do not have access to the unit.
The Kitchenette includes under counter refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot, coffee grinder, toaster, dishes, glassware, cups, microwave cooking accessories. The unit includes linens and towels. It has its own heater and AC. It has one double bed and one futon that makes into a twin.
We can negotiate longer stays but would like to keep it around 3 months max. The room is not large enough for large groups - so we've limited it to two guests. We can discuss more if they are children and your stay is two weeks or less.
Concord is centrally located in the Bay Area, just an hour drive to the Wine Country, Pacific Ocean or San Francisco. We are close to transit for easy access to San Francisco, Oakland or Berkeley. We live in a quiet safe neighborhood. Concord has a fabulous farmers market and concert series in the summer on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and a pleasant walk-able downtown with a nice selection of restaurants to suit everyone's taste. Lime Ridge Open Space and the Contra Costa Canal Trail are steps away from our home and provide access to parks throughout the region. We are a few blocks from the Concord Community Pool and a few more from Markham Nature park.

Interaction with Guests
We are available if needed and we are happy to provide information about where to go and what to do.
It is a quiet tree lined older neighborhood with large yards. It is a quiet neighborhood - yet it is still close to transit and open space.
BART is conveniently located about a mile away. There is a bus system also. We recommend BART for going into the SF, Berkeley or Oakland. If you want to visit Napa or the ocean, you will need a car.

Michele is a wonderful host. I arrived to find goodies there for snacks. Anytime I asked for something it was taken care of quickly. The pictures accurately show the lovely studio apt you get which was extremely clean and pleasant. The neighborhood is very nice and a safe place to stay. Thanks. I won't be staying again since while there I bought a condo not far away but would definitely recommend it to anyone.
Wonderful place to stay in Concord. Michelle and Paul have created a very welcoming apartment and it is in a nice neighborhood. There is a bike/running trail at the end of the block. Plenty of fresh towels and linens, clean, bright, and all the necessities. I would return if in the area again someday!
My daughter and I had such a nice stay at Michelle and Paul's. We were on town for my neice's wedding. Their place was so comfortable and clean. It was so awesome knowing we could be comfortable only. 2 miles from my sisters home and close to the city for everything we wanted to see. Thank you so very much Michelle and Paul. We really enjoyed your home.
Our second time staying. As nice as last time. Starting to feel like home. We will be back.
The studio was really great and the neighbourhood was quiet and pretty.
Michelle was a really nice host. I recommand that place.
This was our second stay in this comfortable, well furnished studio apartment. Michele and Paul are wonderful hosts. We appreciated the coffee, tea, water and snacks they left for us. They responded to our questions and needs promptly. We hope to stay with them on future visits to Concord.
Michelle and Paul were great hosts with good knowledge of the area
The apartment is also great set in a beautiful location within easy travelling distance to restaurants and public transport
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves
