Easy street parking in front of home without restrictions. NOTE: I am not close to public transportation. Best to have a car to stay here. Pleasant Hill and Walnut Creek BART stations just 2 miles away. You can drive to BART stations and park for a $3.00 fee for the day M-F; free on weekends.

Interaction with guests

I interact with my guests as much as they want to converse or request information about the area.

The neighborhood

Lots of trees in this older neighborhood. Nearby (walking distance), we have a shopping center, park, bike and walking trails. 20 minutes to top of ridge for a panoramic view.

Getting around

BEST TO HAVE A CAR - it's 2 miles to the BART (train) station. Lyft or Uber charges approximately $7-$8 to BART station from my home.

Downtown San Francisco is a 25 to 35 minute BART ride from Walnut Creek station (depending on commute time.)

Lots of parking in front of house without any restrictions.

Other things to note

Other items available for use: hairdryer, iron and ironing board, umbrellas, jackets (San Francisco is cold in the summer and I will not let you freeze), coolers, ice packs, cable TV, band-aids, etc.

NOTE: The security deposit will not be charged to your booking. It will be incurred only if you set off a false alarm by misuse of the security keypad and the police unnecessarily come to the home. It is EASY TO USE; you just need to be mindful; conscientious and pay attention.

Kristen was a wonderful hostess starting with coffee and a chat each morning! Her home was comfortable and the yard was lovely. She made my stay so easy ;)

Loved it. The room is clean, quiet and very comfortable. I had some of the best sleep. Kris was an amazing host, from preparing coffee each morning to bath robes and fresh towel. I would recommend this place to any of my friends.

As Good As It Gets. First time as a guest using Airbnb. Kris was as great as a host as you could ask for. Never an uncomfortable moment during my stay. Bedroom, backyard, house in general is prime, location too. If you are on the fence about where to stay, go this route, there is no chance you will be disappointed.

Kris was a wonderful host. I felt immediately welcome and comfortable. This was much more than I expected as this was my first stay at an Airbnb. Her place is very clean and as described in the listing. Her back yard is very quiet and relaxing. The location was ideal since my business was right down the road in Walnut Creek. I would definitely stay there again. Thanks for everything. Dom
