About this listing
Large Downstairs Bedroom with COMFY CA KING BED, separate entrance, and lots of privacy! This is all about your space, about your space . . .
Your suite-like room with comfy CA KING bed, electric fireplace, tv, leather sofa and a.m. sunshine!
This is the DOWNSTAIRS of my home which is spacious & private. There is a LARGE SUITE-LIKE BEDROOM which has an EXTRA COMFY CA KING-SIZE BED, antiques, and a sitting area with a electric fireplace, Leather Couch, and TV.
The couch has a hide-a-bed that folds out into a twin bed for a 3rd person. There is another single mattress that can be put in the room for a 4th person.
There is also a SEPARATE, but CONNECTED OFFICE.
The downstairs has its own small PRIVATE BATHROOM, private PATIO area with a FOUNTAIN, bird feeder, and GATED GARDEN, as well as a SEPARATE ENTRANCE to go in and out as you please.
On the side deck, there is a HOTTUB. In the backyard, there is an outdoor GAS BBQ, copper sink, frig, and breath-taking GAS FIREPIT which will keep you super warm even in 20 degree weather! There is also a TV on the upper patio. The upper patio (w/firepit) overlooks the MT. DIABLO HILLS. There are also plenty of outlets to plug in your music, computer, phone, etc.
The fountains, birdbaths & gardens make it a relaxing, resort-like atmosphere. There are many beautiful trees, grapevines, playful squirrels, occasional deer, and lots of blooming flowers in the Spring/Summer in the large yard. Please pick & enjoy whatever is growing in the yard at the time!
There is internet access, plenty of parking (even an RV), as well as the outdoor BBQ, stove tops, frig, & sinks.
The OPEN SPACE area nearby is great for Hiking, Biking, Running, & Wildlife exploring. Love it! There are free public TENNIS COURTS + a nice PARK down the street. There are also public golf courses in the area & I have one set of GOLF CLUBS that you can use for $3 a day.
This is the PERFECT HOUSE for visiting the BAY AREA b/c it is:
- 27 miles from San Francisco,
- a 5 min. drive to BART (public transportation to SF),
- a 40 min. drive to Napa Valley (wine country),
- & a 5 min. drive to downtown Walnut Creek!
WALNUT CREEK itself is a MUST-SEE City!!!

I will have a list of restaurants & directions to a couple of the trail heads to the Open Space area when you arrive.
Upon request, your dog will be considered as a guest for an extra fee of $10 per night. I love dogs but prefer to discuss beforehand. Thank you!
You are welcome to use all of the outdoor amenities (hottub, tv, bbq etc). The coffee pot, small frig, and microwave are the "kitchen" space downstairs.
Interaction with Guests
You choose! You can always knock on my door or join me by the fire pit, hot tub, or bbq outside!
Extremely safe, full of trees, bus transportation just outside our house, hiking/biking/running trails everywhere, & the neighbors are friendly!!!!!
It is best to have a car, but the County Connection No. 2 bus outside the house will take you to BART & downtown Walnut Creek weekdays. Schedules (County Connection) are available on-line or I can also provide you one. Also, the Uber App is a way to get to downtown any day & great alternative to a taxi cab ride!
Other Things to Note
I have other listings at this location, including: "Toasty Hottub Outside Your Room!," which is great for privacy on the enclosed deck area outside and access to a full kitchen!
I have had the honor of hosting several long-term guests and am always open to it!
1. You will get a REMOTE to go in & out of the gate when you arrive. Please drop it in my locked mailbox OR leave it in your room when you leave.
2. NO SMOKING.
3. If you have a dog, please have it do its business on the mulch (not the grass) & pick up after the pup.
4. If you are outside on the patios in the evenings, please keep it quiet after 9 pm weekdays and 11 pm on the weekends ,,,, my neighbors will appreciate it!
THANK YOU SO MUCH and ENJOY YOUR STAY!
Upper Patio overlooking the Mt. Diablo Hills (pre-patio cover) - come see the marvelous progress (New Patio Cover) since!
The host was most welcoming and accmodating to our request for minor adjustments to the space.
She would text, or if seeing us on the outside, ask if we need anything.
The space was large and very comfortable.
Looking forward to returning next year.
Ann was a wonderful host. She greeted us late Christmas Eve with a wonderful warm welcome inviting us to use the hot tub and her lovely home. The room was impeccably clean and large the beds were comfortable and the towels were awesome. We enjoyed time in the hot tub and her house was conveniently located to downtown Walnut Creek. I would recommend Ann and her house to anyone without reservations.
Thanks Ann for making us feel welcomed and comfortable.
Ann was a wonderful AirBnB host. Very welcoming, very communicative and very kind. I wish we had had more time to see each other! Busy holiday time meant we were two ships passing in the night (literally). Her place is totally charming and she was kind enough to let us have one or two of our adult kids join us for a night or two on her extra bedding in the room. Having a welcome place for the dog was, of course, very helpful. The patio is a great place, though we didn't have any time to use it this time. We'll be back!
What a fantastic find! Ann was very welcoming and the room downstairs was perfect for our stay. It is very close to shopping and dining in Walnut Creek and super close to the BART station. Four of us slept comfortably and we ended up staying an extra night. The towels and linens were clean and fresh smelling and we even had a small refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. The outside fire pit and sitting area was very nice and we would definitely stay there again.
Ann was absolutely amazing!! She let me rent her backyard for my bridal shower and I am so happy that I did!
Ann answered all my questions and reassured me that everything was great, her place would accommodate our guest count. She got back to me so quickly and was so sweet from beginning to end. She welcomed me as soon as I arrived and volunteered to help.
I recommend this cute house to anyone and every one!!
Ann was so lovely & welcoming, the space was even better in person. Charming, comfortable, clean & quiet. Great communication, will definitely book again my next trip to the area!
