Airbnb suggests $84/night, but we charge $19 less. If you can handle the sounds of a family home, this is the place for you! :)
Our home is nestled in a quaint town called Lafayette in the East Bay of San Francisco. We live right next to the Lafayette bike/walking trail which goes between Lafayette and Moraga and makes for a lovely stroll. Grocery Stores (Trader Joes and Safeway), drugstore (CVS), coffee shops (local, Starbucks, Peets, etc.), boutiques and many lovely restaurants within 2 miles (3-5 minute drive). We are a very short drive to Orinda, Moraga and Walnut Creek for more shopping and restaurants - and on the same road as St. Mary's College (3 minutes). We are a 30 minute drive or train ride to San Francisco, and a 15 minute drive to Berkeley and Oakland. Lafayette Bart Station is 2 miles away (5 minutes).
Road trips to various beautiful Northern California locations are also convenient - San Francisco (30 minutes), Napa & Sonoma (less than 1 hour), Marin, Santa Cruz (1.5 hours), Half Moon Bay (1.25 hours), Carmel & Monterey (2 hours), Yosemite (3-3.5 hours), Lake Tahoe (3 hrs away.)
The room is large with bay windows, a large, sunken bathtub and double sink (no shower, but depending on circumstances, we can possibly arrange access to separate shower in main home). This room was the original master bedroom in the house before renovations and can comfortably sleep 2 people in the Queen bed (with featherbed!). It has a private entrance into the backyard. We will provide key to separate entrance for easy and private in/out access.
In addition to the cozy Queen bed with wooden frame, we also have custom shelving, which houses a TV with cable as well as a host of books to read while in our home. Drawers are empty and available for your clothes, as well as a walk in closet with hangers. Wireless internet is also available.
Extra treats: free parking, no cleaning fee.
Light kitchen privileges (like milk in fridge) *may* be arranged for long term guests, but not full kitchen access or cooking. However, there are plenty of affordable restaurants nearby.
If the room looks available on the Calendar on Airbnb, it's available! There's no need to write and ask if it's available, unless you just want to say "hi." In which case, we'll be happy to say "hi" back. :)
Rules are simple: no drugs, no smoking indoors, no underage drinking. And we'd appreciate you keep the lights off while not in use. Swimming pool is available, but not under the influence of alcohol or illegal substances. Swim at your own risk. Other than that, we only ask that you treat our home with respect and leave the key on the bedside table upon leaving (if we're not here to check you out personally).
Terra and Chris were wonderful. Their kids are very polite and their room ended up being a perfect fit for my time in Lafayette. I have already told many people how awesome my stay was and I or any family need somewhere to crash in this area I will definitely refer them to Terra and Chris.
Great place to stay! Friendly and charismatic family who greeted us on arrival .. Gave us great advice on good local restaurants to check out! Very easy to get into San Fran! Loved that is wasn't in the city but had great access to all the main hwys! 30mins to San Fran, 45mins to Napa Valley! and We even had deer at the yard one morning!! Big treat for us!! Room was comfortable and as described .. The tub is magic!! Thanks so much .. Can definitely recommend! There was a little noise from the main house mornings and evenings but never enough to give us any type of concern and the private access meant we could freely come and go!! GREAT LOCATION! Great set up .. Great family!!
They were not there when I arrived but they left a message stating when they would return and left a contact number. They were available and responded quickly if I needed something.
Everything was great, just as presented. Pleasant, comfortable. Nice family feel. Good restaurant recommendation from Chris.
We had a wonderful stay at Terra & Chris' place.
Private entrance, huge room, awesome bathroom, nice communication, fast WiFi! Everything is clean and tidy.
Thank you so much for everything!
We will try to stay here if we visit Lafayette again.
Chris and his daughter welcomed me as soon as I arrived and help me with my bags to my room. The room is exactly as pictured. The bed for me was very comfy and I slept excellent... I like a soft bed. As described this is a house hold with children so you will hear kids playing and laughing, but I did not feel it was disruptive in any way. This home is in a beautiful setting and super close to great food, walking and biking trails. The bathtub is awesome, however there is no shower which is fine with me. I also loved that I had my own private entrance. So if I left early or came in late, it wasn't disruptive to the homeowners. Thanks again for a great experience my first time using AirBnB.

Hi there! I was there with my son cooper last year to visit safari west, and am bringing his twin brother this time. I hope you still have the chickens, as they are often talked about in our home! :). Look forward to seeing you again.
