Katie made sure I had all I needed to be at home there and made herself available if anything was needing attention.
When we arrived our Host was just putting the finishing touches in the unit; some flowers and banana bread her daughter made for us. the was also fresh fruit in a bowl. The unit was clean and very comfortable; a sun room with a small dining table, living and kitchen room and bedroom with bathroom. The outside was private and felt like it was our private space.
Gorgeous space with gracious hosts. Katie and Lance accommodated our very last-minute request and greeted us with smiles and warmth. The decor and furnishings are impeccable. The kitchen is well equipped and the bed was comfortable. Everything was clean and comfortable. I hope to have an opportunity to stay here again.
Katie and Lance are wonderful hosts making sure the apartment is set up perfectly. The design is modern and beautiful, yet also very comfortable wth all the amenities one would need. I love the outdoor yard/patio area. It is located in a the perfect location to walk to downtown Lafayette yet also you can Bart into SF so quickly! I can't wait to stay there again!
This was our second time here. We love the house, the hostess and her family are great. We would stay here forever if we could!
Katie was amazing and a very kind host. Her place is beautiful and exactly as described. We did not want to leave.
Katie is a fabulous host! We stayed for an extended period and honestly didn't want to leave. The apartment is extremely well appointed and very private. For those who like to cook, the pots, pans and knives are fantastic.

About the Host, Katie
I'm Katie and have been an airbnb host since 2012. My husband and I love hosting for our Lafayette apartment and also for our family's cottage in Healdsburg. It's been a fun opportunity to put my design training to work and to meet interesting people from the US and around the world.
We like to travel, hang out with our kids, garden & cook. Lance is a sports and politics enthusiast. My passion is design and construction and we are currently finishing up an addition to our house. Lance will be very happy when it is finished!
