The Space

Enjoy a private room and bathroom in a peaceful, hillside setting in Orinda. Just one mile from Orinda BART and easy access to San Francisco, wine country, and more. Perfect place to stay while visiting friends & family in Lamorinda (Lafayette, Moraga, Orinda). The house's deck begs you to enjoy the hillside view and great oak tree with a mug of coffee.

Would be fine for a single or couple; there is an air mattress available if you have small children, please contact me for details or with any questions.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Staying in the Orinda area for a couple of weeks, my wife and I based ourselves at Eve's place. It is located just outside Orinda's commercial district and easy to get to find. I had a rented car which I kept parked on the street rather than try the steep driveway. We were away from the house most of the time with family who live in the area, but while we were there we found everything perfect. The deck is lovely at any hour and the nights are quiet for peaceful sleeping. The room is minimally furnished but the house is spacious and Eve made us feel at home.

  • I really enjoyed meeting Eve and our stay in her beautiful home was just what we needed. The room although minimally furnished had a great bed and was very clean. The property is wooded and has a wonderful deck. It was quiet and friendly and very close to our workshop location. We had full use of the kitchen and laundry facilities, and in fact, the whole house. The parking was fine, the driveway almost too steep for my Prius to handle, probably fine for a non hybrid car. The little town was close by and had good places to eat and buy food. Many thank yous Eve.

  • I stayed at this house in Orinda while in the Bay Area on vacation. It was very clean and spacious, with high ceilings and large windows. Located in a quiet, safe and peaceful neighborhood. The best part was a beautiful deck overlooking an old live oak tree and a variety of other trees and shrubs. The owner was very accommodating and easy to deal with. It was really a great place to stay!

  • Eve's place is a gorgeous oasis of calm with easy access to everything around the Bay area. The bedroom is quiet and perfect for sleeping and the rest of the house is all glass, looking out on a deck leading out into a private canyon shaded by a majestic, ancient oak tree. The house is spotlessly clean and as comfortable as it gets! She has her own, covered parking and it's a short, easy drive into the city. The Orinda BART station is a 15 minute walk (or 3 minute cab ride) down the hill and 25 minute straight shot into San Francisco (it's even a straight shot from SFO). Orinda itself is a beautiful little town with a charming, walkable downtown with very nice shops and restaurants. If I ever move back the Bay Area, I think I'll choose to live in Orinda!

    Eve's place is perfect for a work trip or a vacation in San Francisco. It's calm, quiet, and beautiful with easy access to SF, Oakland and Marin. I couldn't recommend it more highly.

  • Eve's place really is a beautiful little Oasis outside of SF. I was in town for work in the city and could feel myself relaxing as I drove out to Orinda into the beautiful town with rolling hills. This trip was the perfect combination of enjoying the activities 20 minutes away in downtown SF and the quiet reprieve of Eve's home. I enjoyed the morning sitting on the deck, listening to the birds and enjoyed the spectacular oak tree and view from the back the of home. The room was comfortable, private and quite and Eve is a wonderful host. I will definitely stay here the next time I am in the city!

Hi, I'm a Bay Area native and entrepreneur. I run a healthcare software startup in San Francisco but when not at my laptop you can find me out running, biking or otherwise enjoying the outdoors. I now live in Orinda, CA, with my fiance, Kevin, and our dog, Ginger. I grew up nearby (Moraga), so please feel free to ask me about activities in the area! I've enjoyed using AirBnB around the country and am happy to share the hosting privilege.
