The Space

Secluded contemporary retreat in the woods: sun-drenched decks, private tree-canopied hot tub, full gym, and two comfy bikes. This listing is for one bedroom with private bathroom, use of the outdoor spaces, kitchen, hot tub and gym.

This unique little gem is nestled in the warm hills of the Diablo Valley (on average we're 15-20° warmer than nearby SF)
Why not make your stay in the east bay that much more memorable and peaceful?

Walnut Creek is a destination spot for dining (144 restaurants), shopping, and outdoor recreation, including the Mt. Diablo Regional Park which has miles of trails for hiking, biking and running.

This retreat setting feels like you are far from civilization yet you are only a 5 block walk (or bike) to Walnut Creek BART which puts the entire Bay area within an easy train ride. (15 minute ride to Oakland/Berkeley. 30 minute ride to San Francisco, 70 minutes direct to the terminal at SFO international airport.) Walnut Creek is also on the way to Lake Tahoe and the Sierras.

Guest Access

Guests have full access to kitchen, living room, several decks and patios, hot tub in the trees, and gym.

Interaction with Guests

Guests can have as much privacy and quiet as needed. I am here to create a soothing space for recharging and relaxing. I will sometimes invite guests for a hike or a workout.

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood feels like you are far from a city, yet you are minutes from downtown Walnut Creek.

Getting around

BART is 5 blocks away. We are located a few blocks from the intersection of two major highways that can take you directly to Berkeley, Oakland, San Francisco, San Jose, Sacramento, Lake Tahoe and beyond.....

  • My stay at Jeanne's house was awesome! Bed is super comfy and the peace of the location was (website hidden) in the huge kitchen, the hot tub and spa like shower got me spoiled! My only regret was that my schedule did not allow for more meals with Jeanne. What a neat person! Would definitely return her next time I am in Walnut Creek.

  • I travel regularly to Walnut Creek and Jeanne's house is my top choice, without question. It is truly a home away from home where I can kick back and feel comfortable. I can't recommend Jeanne's house highly enough.

  • Jeanne has created a relaxing space for a business traveler or a personal retreat. Fantastic landscaping, a hot tub, a rain shower, a wonderful bed, fresh breezes, and a modern kitchen. What more do you need? Highly recommended!

  • Responsive - My girlfriend and I stayed at Jeanne's house in Walnut Creek for a week. I contacted Jeanne 2 weeks beforehand and she was very patient and helpful with my multiple bookings and change of itinerary.

    Intentional - her place feels right to me. The house itself is beautifully lit with natural light, surrounded by the enchanted spirits of various plants.

    Convenient - I can bike or walk to BART station but it still feels so secluded with the private hot tub and ohm gym setup.

    Inspiring - jeanne is lovely! She makes me want to live a full life.

  • Jeanne's house was such a diamond of a place and greatly exceeded our expectations. The entire house contains such positivity and delight in every corner. The amenities were outstanding; we biked all over town on the two bicycles, spent an evening lounging in the wonderfully huge hot tub, and couldn't of been happier with the room.

    Jeanne is very easy going, and was a wonderful host. I recommend her to anyone that is considering staying in the East Bay area.

  • You can feel Jeanne's warmth even before you arrive to her California escape. As you immediately unwind with the comforts of "come relax here" surroundings, you will be soothed and at the same time energized by the garden surroundings of each room.
    Pleasant ceiling fans, a very comfortable bed and lovely bedding,
    promise some peaceful rest. The bathroom is spa-like with it's rain shower head and beautiful stone work. Jeanne shared much local information and has a special kindness about her. For my varied needs, she made the unexpected easily available. I would highly recommend Jeanne's hideaway, just around the corner from reaching every part of the greater region by various modes of transportation!

Hi, I'm Jeanne, a local professional who loves taking in the incredible variety of activities and natural beauty that are all around northern California. In my free time, I can be found practicing yoga, trail-running, kiteboarding, stand-up paddle-boarding and snowboarding. I am devoted to enhancing health through a primal/whole foods lifestyle. I've created a home and garden full of quiet spots for contemplation, relaxation and recharging. Now I am happy to share it with you.
