The Space

Guest apartment in residential setting. Great privacy with separate entrance and garden. Space was recently renovated with new finishes and fixtures and mostly new furnishings. Interior is modern and fresh. Full bath and kitchen are stocked with linens, towels, flatware, dishware, etc. Apartment is set up for guests - we don't live here ourselves. We are one block from downtown Lafayette and short walk to all ammenities. For commuting, we are an easy BART ride to downtown SF, Berkeley, Oakland. Parking is shared with owners. TV, wireless internet and basic cable are all included. In addition to the queen sized bed in the bedroom, there is a couch that can be slept on (not a pull out though) and a single bed can be set up in the dining area for another private sleeping area, if needed. We will give you your privacy, but are here if you need anything.

Local attaractions include the cute town of Lafayette just a few blocks away with good restaurants, groceries and shops. The nearby Lafayette Reservoir has great walking and hiking trails. UC Berkeley is 20 minutes away and St. Mary's college is 10 minutes. Mount Diablo has great hiking and biking and shopping can be done in downtown Walnut Creek. There is a new Saunday Farmer's Market 2 blocks from us!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My husband and I had a wonderfully relaxing stay at Katie's property! Their rental is beautiful, very modern and warmly inviting. Katie's hospitality was delightful - even including a yummy basket of goodies! There's everything you need in the way of pots & pans, nice size refrigerator/freezer, oven/stove, TV, great Wifi - to wind down for a real get-away! And if you decide to eat out, restaurant choices in the cute town of Lafayette are terrific! This is definitely a "must stay" and we look forward to our next visit to Lafayette and Katie's place. Thank you for making it such a special memory for us, Katie!

  • Katie and Lance were wonderful, very attentive, discret, and helpful. They made us feel at home. The cherry on the cake was the welcome basket prepared by Katie with a lot of French specialities. We appreciated a lot. They were very welcoming with us and give us a lot of good tips to start our new live in the Bay Area. Their apartment is close to Lafayette city center and close to BART (ideal for visiting San Francisco and the Bay area without the cost of living in SF). Lafayette is a nice city, peaceful and pretty and you will find all that you need. So, I recommand Katie’s apartment for anyone who want to visit Bay area and Lafayette.

  • Katie's house was the perfect fit for my husband and me! We were looking for a nice place to stay outside the San Francisco area to explore the surroundings as we might need to relocate there at the end of the summer. We couldn't have asked for more! We slept super comfortably and felt like we were at home. We will totally consider booking Katie's place again if we visit the bay area in the future!

  • Katie and Lance were wonderful hosts for our weekend stay! Very communicative and quick to respond to our messages beforehand, and welcoming, gracious, and informative upon our arrival. They even prepared a gift basket, which was a very nice surprise!

    The apartment is as gorgeous as the photos depict, and the location is very serene and relaxing, and minutes from the downtown Lafayette area. It was a great weekend getaway for us, and we'd love to book again!

  • Katie's place is perfect for a getaway. It's private, serene, and full of light. The apartment has everything you could imagine you would need with plenty of cozy towels, coffee maker, and a great sofa for lounging. Her set up is perfect if you have a dog and she is very welcoming of pets. It's quite difficult to find a place of this caliber with owners who welcome dogs, but Katie is that rare gem. We celebrated our anniversary and we had a lovely bottle of bubbly and fruits to top it off. You cannot not go wrong staying here!

  • Katie and her family were warm and friendly - giving us plenty of privacy, but very available for any questions we had. The apartment was just as depicted - clean and lovely.

  • This one bedroom guest cottage is absolutely impeccable! The feeling is tranquility, yet you are just a five minute walk to the heart of town. Also the BART station is right there! We loved our stay and only wish it could have gone on longer. Katie and Lance were very welcoming and we felt very comfortable coming and going. We will definitely be staying here again IF we can work ourselves in to their busy calendar. If you are visiting Lafayette or the surrounding area, this place is ideal!

  • We had the most wonderful stay. Katie is an amazing host and I would highly recommend her and her place which is a piece of heaven!

  • The apartment is stylish, comfortable and very clean.
    Katie and Lance are very welcoming and want to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Upon arrival, we received a beautiful basket of fruit and other goodies. I highly recommend the place!!

We are a 40-something couple with two great kids. I am trained in Architecture and my husband Lance is in IT. We are enjoying being airbnb hosts and guests as well. We have loved hosting people from around the world. It has been so much fun. On our upcoming Europe trip, we are looking forward to being guests. We like to travel, hang out with our kids, garden & cook. Lance is a sports addict, like politics and talking about his latest interest - gluten free cooking! My passion is design and I am currently designing an addition to our house.
