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.
Kris was an amazing host! She was super welcoming and made me feel right at home. She gave great advice on places to eat and things to see in the area. Her backyard is beautiful and a great place to spend the evening working on the computer with a glass of wine. I'm so glad I found her and would highly recommend this place for anyone traveling to the area!
Having stayed with Kris previously, I pretty much knew what to expect (and of course that is why I chose to stay with her again). She is a generous host who is easy going, easy to speak to and a great conversationalist. Her home is beautiful accented by the beautiful garden that you can see in her listing. She made me feel welcome and appreciated.
