Kris is absolutely lovely, low key, warm, not intrusive in any way, and genuinely seems to enjoy having guests. She had nice breakfast vittels available. The house is quiet, clean, and serene.
We used the key and walked in and almost ran into Kris! She reacted with pleasure! It was as if she already knew us and I told my husband I rarely feel so comfortable in someone else's home. Kris loves people! She also loves the birds and squirrels she feeds in her garden sanctuary. We felt so welcome here. And the coffee!!! 5 *****
Kris is awesome. This was a wonderful place for me to stay. Don't hesitate to get in touch with her, she is a gem.
Kris was extremely welcoming and a gem to talk to. She had excellent recommendations of local eateries and was very friendly. The room was nice and private, internet access was not a problem, and the bathroom had everything that I needed. The backyard was amazing, I wish I had spent more time enjoying the outdoors; unfortunately I was on a tight schedule. I would definitely recommend staying at Kris' place. The next time I am in the area, I will check in again for sure.
Kris war sehr eine sehr nette und offene Gastgeberin. Sie hat uns von Anfang an das Gefühl gegeben, in ihrem Haus willkommen zu sein, das genauso war, wie es beschrieben ist. Wir würden jederzeit wieder bei ihr buchen.
I would recommend Kristen to anyone, she was awesome and coffee every morning really hit the spot. Kristen is very flexible, the house is clean and the house is beautiful.
Kristen was awesome. Very flexible and accecpting. She really took care of me during my trip. BART was close by and plenty of restaurants were close. Walnut Creek is safe and beautiful.
