The Space

Stupendous views, Luxury Linens, Hot Tub, Endless Pool, Jacuzzi Tub in master bath, sauna, pool table, pianos, wifi, satellite tv. What more can you or 10 friends ask for? Very private in hills above St Marys College in Lafayette Ca. Equidistant between San Francisco and the Napa Wine Region. Amazing sunrise and sunset no extra charge.
Commanding view of the Diablo Valley from 1000ft elevation. Our quiet country road is only ten minutes from highway 24. Close to shopping, restaurants and entertainment.
The house is built of genuine adobe, designed to take in the amazing ridgetop views. Paved patios surround the house. There are four private bedrooms (2 with king beds, one with a twin, and one with a queen). There is an additional sleeping loft which has a king and set of bunks. The loft opens to a deck above the gardens.
The house is comfortable and homey with Early California Mission decor. There is a full size bear in the living room under the spiral staircase as well as a real bear rug under the pool table. (We did not kill them!) Two wood burning fireplaces are usable when the hills surrounding the house are green.
The gardens are kept in bloom all year providing the deer haven't recently invaded. Some of the animals in the canyon include deer, turkeys, raccoons, fox, and many birds including quail. There are friendly resident outdoor cats; Buster, Posey and Geoffa. We enjoy having guests bring their dog along to bark at the deer and keep them out of the gardens!
Al fresco dining is encouraged with six tables on various patios and numerous patio heaters. Propane provided free of charge for the outdoor heaters as well as large BBQ.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This house is highly recommended, it is absolutely amazing. We came with a group of friends and didn’t want to leave. The views are breathtaking, the garden is beautiful and the house is warm, welcoming and well equipped. It is a short drive from SF and the bay area yet it is remote and extremely private.
    Our only regret was that we didn’t book it for a longer time; 2 nights were not enough to enjoy everything that the house and the area has to offer. Karen was very helpful and very kind and there was a maintenance person on site that was very responsive and reliable.

  • We were a group of 9 people and we had a wonderful stay at Karen's house. It's a great, well-equipped location with lots of space and wonderful views.
    We booked the house on short-term and the organisation with Karen was quick and easy. She'(email hidden) and provided us with lots of recommendations for catering services, etc. Furthermore she allowed us to check in in the morning and to check out in the evening (no extra charges).
    Thank you for the fantastic time.

  • Perfect weekend getaway house for anyone looking to decompress but not have to travel too far out of the city. Great remote location and the house has anything you'd need for a large group. Highly recommend it and I hope to go back soon.

  • Living in San Francisco, I wanted to organize a week end with some friends in the nature but also close enough from the city that people can come and go as they wanted. Karen's place was the perfect combination.

    The house and location is amazing. The views on the surrounding hills are so pretty and watching the sunset from the hot tub were delicious moments. It is a very peaceful. The house is super well equipped, perfect for cooking and also having fun with the pool table and the swimming pool.

    Karen (email hidden), very responsive and accommodating.

  • A group of friends and I celebrated the New Year in this wonderful home and all were very pleased with our experience. The home itself is beautiful, in an amazing private location which puts you away from the hustle and bustle of the city life. Both owners are extremely friendly and have definitely added a touch of warmth and family to the home environment with the interior decorating and set up. I had to admit that my girlfriend and I didn't want to leave our bed in the morning given the fact it was the most comfortable bed either of us have ever slept in. We had everything we needed in the home and our friends definitely felt it was a memorable way to ring in the new year.
    Thank you Schneider family for allowing us the opportunity to stay in such an amazing home!
    Happy New Year!
