We're excited to have you stay in our comfortable, light-filled spare bedroom! It's a fairly minimalistic room, but it's got everything you'll need to make your stay comfortable.

The Space

The room is fairly minimalistic, but it's got everything you'll need to make your stay comfortable. We love our neighborhood and enjoy the ability to leave our windows open, keeping our house wonderfully light and cool.

Guest Access

We encourage guests to feel at home, to come and go as they please, and to enjoy the house as they would their own home. Guests have use of their private room, the shared bathroom and access to keep things cool in the fridge. We also have a deck where you can enjoy your breakfast or watch the stars.

Beyond that we've got all the basics you'd expect (check out the amenities page for more details) to make your stay comfortable.

Interaction with Guests

We're always happy to chat about local eats, entertainment, or places to explore. If we aren't available to let you in at the time of your arrival, we will coordinate to get you a key and ensure you're comfortable in the house.

The Neighborhood

Walnut Creek is a great area with lots of shops (everything from Tiffany&Co to H&M), restaurants, coffee shops, parks and a farmers market on Sunday mornings.

Getting around

We're located in a quiet neighborhood with a 10-minute walk to BART (35 minutes to San Francisco, 15 minutes to Berkeley & Oakland) and a 15-minute walk to downtown Walnut Creek. The Bay Area has tons of shopping, hiking and sightseeing making it a great place to visit.

Other Things to Note

We love traveling and have used AirBnB all over the world which is why we're happy to be able to host others who are doing the same thing!

We host a small book club on at our house (weekly) on Friday nights from 7-10pm, occupying the deck or the living room. It shouldn't interfere with your stay at all, but we like to keep our guests in the know.

  • Thanks a lot for the stay at your place. It was great that we could just dive in to the washer and thank you for all the tips about shopping and food and everything. If/when we come back we will absolutely stay with you guys again, it was great. You should know we really liked the style of your home!

  • Melissa and Joel's place was very clean, very cute, and the room was exactly what we had hoped for - quiet, calming, with a super comfortable bed, as we were tired after a long drive. We arrived late so we never got to meet them but from communicating with them beforehand about our late arrival, they were extremely generous and made us feel comfortable to stay there even if we were arriving after they're asleep! We really appreciated that. They left before we woke up in the morning, and we didn't hear a peep - which we wouldn't have minded since we were staying in their house, but I am sure they made extra effort to be quiet! Definitely would recommend to anyone!

  • Our stay was lovely. The place is beautiful. It is so welcoming and cozy. We stayed in a room next to theirs. Everything was clean and bright. We only stayed for about 12 hours but we could've easily stayed for weeks. I highly recommend them. And I forgot my cherries in their fridge. I hope they liked them :)

    Response from Melissa + Joel:

    Thanks Katy! Glad everything was good for you guys. Sorry about your cherries! I probably should have put them by the door for you. I promise they will not go to waste :)

  • Melissa and Joel are very courteous and friendly. I travelled from out of town to SF for a Giants game and they provided me with lots of information on how to get around Walnut Creek and how to get to the Giants game. The room was very nice and tidy and very much like the picture you see. Joel also provided me with a list of places to eat and downtown is a great experience to explore! I would definitely come back here in the future!

  • I want to move in to this apartment! ;) Melissa and Joel have created a lovely little home and we were grateful to spend a night in their bright, beautiful guest bedroom. Small details like a carafe of water and a couple little candies made us feel very welcome. The apartment is tasteful and comfortable, and Melissa and Joel were extremely responsive prior to my arrival. Very clean and cozy. Would definitely recommend.

    Response from Melissa + Joel:

    Hi Margaret,
    We are so sorry about the mattress! We will definitely try and work on the comfort level or maybe just buy a new mattress :)
    Thanks so much for the generous and kind feedback!

  • My son and I had an amazing time at Joel and Melissa's home. They were very accommodating and pleasant. The room is clean/quaint and is filled with warm sunlight and a cool fresh breeze. They were wonderful to my son (9 months old) and I which made the experience in their home pretty cool. The location was also convenient because I was in walking distance of Bart and downtown Walnut Creek and 1 Bart stop away from 24 hour fitness. I would definitely recommend their home if you like being treated with kindness and love sleeping in a clean comfy room.

  • We had a great time at Melissa and Joel's place. They are really nice people and great hosts who made us feel right at home. We really enjoyed their company and hospitality. The room is clean and bed is very comfy!

    The location is great if you want to explore the area since it is located close to the highway and the BART.

  • Melisa and Joel are extremely kind and accommodating. In fact I enjoyed my time there so much I went back again. Their home is warm and welcoming, the area is great for travel, the downtown is fantastic for eating, and most of all, Melisa and Joel are exceptional people.

Hello, We are recent graduate students who love to travel when the funds are available and have had many great experiences meeting hosts from around the world through AirBnB and wouldn't trade them for staying in a hotel any day. We're a pretty laid back couple who are grateful for a clean room, comfortable bed and friendly hosts (and pets!). We're excited to finally be able to payback the hospitality and warmth that we've encountered since joining the airbnb community years ago by being able to host a listing ourselves.
