We really enjoyed our stay here! We had plenty of space, privacy, and a huge bed! The back yard is lovely including the hottub and firepit. We were appreciative of the mini fridge in the office nook and easy access to the washer/dryer.
We were here for a "working vacation" and although I was gone 12+ hours every day but one, my dear SO was able to work comfortably from here with more than adequate wifi speeds.
We were in a quiet residential area but it was only a 6-7 minute drive to downtown restaurants and shopping. I'd recommend the Walnut Creek Yacht Club for seafood, it was great!
I didn't interact with Ann much at all, but my SO was pleased that she was very helpful and friendly when he needed something.
If we were in the area again I wouldn't hesitate to book with Ann again. Just a wonderful experience overall!
Ann was responsive, friendly and helpful as I made arrangements for a stay for my elderly parents. The clean, spacious studio was level - easy to get to from the parking lot - and the front garden gave the unit a welcoming feel and added privacy. The property is located in a very woodsy area, with curving roads and houses set further apart and has a traditional country feel (no tracts). There are expanses of public open space nearby with scenic vistas. I think this place is ideal for singles/couples/friends who like to hike and walk - and you can have a bbq and soak in the hot tub at the end of the day.
Ann is a warm and welcoming host. The room and bathroom are spacious and private. Everything was clean and well decorated. Good job!
We loved staying at Anns place last week. Her home is beautiful, clean, and comfortable. The location was great, Montana the dog was super sweet, and Ann is a fantastic host, she even had a bottle of wine waiting for us when we arrived. We loved her place so much that my sister and I are coming back next year. Ann is easy to be with, relaxed and fun to be around , I highly recommend staying here !
You & Kim (and of course Mimi & Brigette) are welcome any time at all! I did not realize how wonderful it would be to be a Host!!! Thanks for making it easy!!! Come back SOON! We will have a NITE of fun/adventure! THEN .... we will be skiing down the slope in front of your AIRBNB!!
Big room with a private bathroom and even an office space, comfortable bed, fast internet (>10Mb, VPN/hulu/netflix friendly), 5mn drive from Walnut Creek downtown, very close to a park/open space, and with a private entrance.
They also have a jaccuzi and a big garden and you are surrounded by nature. And of course, you are in Walnut Creek, the best city in the East Bay area!
It was my first experience with airbnb, and I loved it! Relocated for work, I spent my first 2 months in a hotel in Pleasant Hill and then spent 1 month at Ann's place.
Even if my hotel was nice, it is not until I stayed at Ann's that I started to feel at home in California - Ann and Louis are very friendly hosts, very caring, accommodating and social - so beware: if you stay at their place, you may end up having new friends ! :)
Ann's little nook is just outside the main strip of walnut creek and a short 20 minutes outside of the Clayton entrance to Mount Diablo state park. After climbing eagle's peak we were welcomed back by a relaxing hot tub and large and comfy bed. Thank you Ann! See you again!
