The Space

Escape TV and life's intrusions in this private, sunny garden studio which comfortably accommodates 2. It is your “home away from home" and offers needed respite after a magical day in “the city by the Bay” where you added your heart to the millions that have been “left in San Francisco” ~ and ~ you are exhausted and find yourself thinking “there’s no place like home”.

Your east facing room has a sliding glass door out to your private garden patio overlooking a serene and beautiful garden. Outdoor seating includes a garden swing and is the perfect place to eat and/or drink an award winning California made wine or beer.

Your self-selected complimentary continental breakfast items will be waiting for you in your kitchenette. You can “eat in” at your breakfast bar, or “eat out” on your patio table with umbrella shade.

This centrally located village is just 25 miles from San Francisco in the greater East Bay Area and offers a good variety of restaurants, shops, a movie theater, bowling & miniature golf. Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) is just 1.5 miles away. A 30 minute ride on BART will have you walking along the Embarcadero in SF en route to the Ferry Building Market Place, SOMA, Little Italy, Fisherman's Wharf, Ghirardelli Square and much more!

The Oakland International Airport is only 3 BART stops from Castro Valley.

If you enjoy wine tasting, you'll be just a short drive to the Livermore Valley wineries which date back to the late 1800’s. Many of these wineries have garnered a multitude of prestigious awards.

If you decide to take a "day off", you can lounge in the garden under the tall California cedar trees or take a hike in several neighboring East Bay Regional Parks or paddle a kayak on nearby Lake Chabot.

Guest Access

Your private studio is equipped with high speed wireless internet (18Mbps), a DVD player (no TV). Your real queen bed is fitted with Egyptian cotton sheets, a hypoallergenic microfiber comforter and down pillows. Your private bathroom has all of the amenities, including luxurious bath towels, cozy bath robes, toiletries and a hair dryer.

The kitchenette has a compact refrigerator, drip and French press coffee makers, an electric kettle for hot water, a bake/broil/convection toaster oven and a blender.

The lower garden area is yours to explore. The upper garden area is private and off-limits.

chat with your host, Cheryl (a world traveler who enjoys hearing and telling a good travel story over a glass of wine), who can help you design a memorable stay to meet your needs. Cheryl lives upstairs and is accessible during your stay via text or phone call. She will never enter your space during your stay, unless invited or prearranged.

The Neighborhood

This centrally located studio will allow you to easily reach a multitude of Bay Area attractions. The village is surrounded by the East Bay Regional Park District with miles of trails for hiking, biking, horseback riding and nature study. If you enjoy wine tasting, you will be just a short drive to the Livermore Valley wineries which date back to the late 1800’s, many of which have garnered a multitude of prestigious awards. Berkeley and Palo Alto are within easy reach if you want to visit the world renowned UC Berkeley and/or Stanford campuses. Both universities as well as Silicon Valley and the South Bay (San Jose) can be easily accessed by car.

Getting Around

Public transportation via BART (1.5 miles away) and AC-transit (1/4 block away) are the best ways to get around. You can reach downtown San Francisco via BART in just 30 minutes without having to change trains. The Oakland International Airport is only 3 BART stops from Castro Valley, and the SFO International Airport can be accessed by BART in a little over 1 hour (and you will have to change trains). The San Jose Airport is further away, although you can rent a car or hire a taxi to reach this property.

Other Things to Note

This studio is also accessible from either the San Francisco or San Jose International Airports. A car is not a necessity, but is nice to have during your stay so that you can explore further afield.
