About this listing

This colorful room has a great view of the inviting backyard! This house is perfect for exploring the SF BAY Area or just visiting Walnut Creek ... you will never want to leave!! Optional ($20): 2nd Room and 2nd bed for a 3rd person.

The space

This great escape in the Bay Area overlooks the beautiful backyard. The patios have a Gas Fire Pit, Gas BBQ, Outdoor sinks, Hottub, TV, and large Patio Covers for you to enjoy all-year-round!!!!

This is my Favorite room in the house!!! This is my fun, creative room! I installed an 8-ft. slider in this room for your backyard viewing. The Murphy full bed sleeps two and can be folded up.

There is a large PRIVATE bathroom down the hall.

A 3rd person will have a SEPARATE ROOM w/a TWIN BED, giving you 2 full rooms. The 2nd ROOM has FRENCH DOORS out to the patio.

Outside, there is a HOT TUB, OUTDOOR GAS BBQ, COPPER SINK, FRIG, 2 Gas Stove Tops, and BREATH-TAKING GAS FIRE PIT which will keep you super warm even in 20 degree weather! The upper patio (w/fire pit) OVERLOOKS the MT DIABLO HILLS and has a new patio cover over the top of it. The FOUNTAINS, BIRDBATHS, & GARDENS make it a relaxing, resort-like atmosphere. There are many trees, grapevines, playful squirrels, birds, and occasional deer in our large yard.

There is internet access, free parking, full use of the kitchen, as well as the outdoor BBQ, frig, stove tops & granite sinks.

The grapevines are in full bloom with grapes in August and Sept. for you to eat and enjoy! In Sept/Oct, there are Fuji apples in the front yard!

The OPEN SPACE area nearby is great for Hiking, Biking, Running, & Wildlife exploring. I love it!!! There are public TENNIS COURTS + a nice PARK down the street. There are also several nearby public GOLF COURSES. I have 1 set of GOLF CLUBS that you can use for $3 a day.

This is the perfect house for visiting the BAY AREA!!! It is:
- 27 miles from San Francisco,

- 40 min. drive to Napa Valley (wine country)(URL HIDDEN)min. drive to downtown Walnut Creek!

Guest access

You are welcome to use the living room, kitchen, and all of the outdoor area (hot tub, bbq, fire pit, etc) in addition to your room(s) and private bathroom.

Interaction with guests

You choose! You can always knock on our door or join us by the fire pit, hot tub, bbq, or anywhere you see us on the property!

Other things to note

1. A booking for a 3rd person will give you a WHOLE EXTRA ROOM (2nd bedroom). The extra room has FRENCH DOORS to the OUTDOOR PATIO and an attached door to the Murphy bedroom...thus, the small extra fee for a 3rd person.

2. We live in the house, but are often downstairs, outside, or just out and about.

3. Upon request, your dog will be considered as a guest for an extra fee of $10 per night, which I have to add in manually b/c Airbnb currently does not have an option for this to be automatically calculated in the total price. I do love dogs, but prefer to discuss beforehand. Thank you!

My daughter and I enjoyed staying in Ann's home. Everything was easy. She has such a nice home and beautiful garden. It was lovely waking up in the morning and opening up the sliding glass door to go out and sit on the patio , read, enjoy the garden, and sip a cup of coffee( thank you Skip!) It was also amazing to be able to have our puppy , Bella, with us. We came to spend time with family who live locally, but for anyone coming to visit the area, this air bnb is the best of both worlds. It is located in a nice and quiet neighborhood, but just a short driving distance from downtown Walnut Creek. Mount Diablo is also close. Ann and Skip were friendly and helpful hosts and we definitely recommend their air bnb to others!

I was in the area for a meeting for just one night, but Ann was great. The house is extremely clean and Ann was a great host, and was there to greet me when I arrived. She also helped me find a local gym since the weather was pretty bad that day. I would definitely recommend this place.

Ann is a wonderful host and made us feel so welcome right from our first meeting. Her neighborhood is scenic and quiet making for a very relaxing stay. Ann's house was extremely comfortable with a back yard and garden with features that few could match. Our stay was very enjoyable. Thank You Ann

I am easy-going and enjoy meeting new people. I love snow skiing, tennis, hiking, traveling, and hanging out with family/friends. My favorite travel destinations are NZ, Ireland, & Idaho, Montana, Alaska - - all gorgeous w/fabulous people! My boyfriend, Skip, is from the Oregon/Washington area and sometimes is gone traveling for his work.

I am a working professional. Depending on my workload, I may not be around much. I hope you feel at home in our home! And if we are in your home, please be assured we will treat it like it is our own, i.e., with care, respect, and cleanliness! And I have learned from my parents and live by it: "If you borrow something, return it in better condition than you found it."
