Holiday Rental House
This HOME has 3 bedrooms and 1-1/2 bathrooms. It is a large home with kitchen, living room, and dining area. The outside is the GEM! 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 degreez weather! There is also a TV on the upper patio. The upper patio (w/firepit) overlooks the MT. DIABLO HILLS. It is great for entertaining and there are plenty of electrical outlets to plug in your music, 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 throughout the Spring/Summer in the large yard. Please pick & enjoy whatever is growing in the yard at the time! There i...This HOME has 3 bedrooms and 1-1/2 bathrooms. It is a large home with kitchen, living room, and dining area.

There is internet access, plenty of parking (even an RV), full use of the kitchen, as well as the outdoor BBQ, stove tops, frig, & sinks. The nearby OPEN SPACE area 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. 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!!! -GREAT RESTAURANTS: Va de Vi, Massimo, Cheesecake Factory, Rooftop, Standford's, etc.; -THEATERS: Lesher Center and the outdoor CA Shakespeare Theater in Orinda; -SHOPPING: Tiffany & Co, Coach, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom's, Pottery Barn, William Sonoma, & unique boutiques; -& STREET FAIRS and Art & Wine FESTIVALS often!!! 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! Guest Amenities: Stocked kitchen, comfortable living room, all of the outdoor amenities (hot tub, bbq, gas fire pit, tv, stove tops, etc). Interaction with Guests: You choose! You can always knock on our door in the downstairs unit or call/text us with questions if we are away at our 2nd home. The Neighborhood: Extremely safe, full of trees, bus transportation just outside our house, hiking/biking/running trails everywhere, & the neighbors are friendly!!!!! Getting Around: It is best to have a car, but the County Connection No. 2 bus will take you to BART and downtown Walnut Creek weekdays. You can also Uber to get a ride to downtown every day! Other Things to Note: This is the perfect place for traveling nurses working in the Bay Area!!! Several have stayed here. ________________________________________ House Rules: 1. You will be given a REMOTE control for the gate when you arrive. Please leave it in the brick “733” MAILBOX (which has a lock on it) when you checkout. 2. Please squeegy down the shower after use with the squeegy provided. 3. NO smoking. 4. Please have your dog do its business on the mulch (not the grass) & pick up after it. THANK YOU SO MUCH and ENJOY YOUR STAY! More

About the neighbourhood
safe neighborhood with a beautiful entrance gate in Walnut Creek. Our house is set back from the street so it is quiet, peaceful, & offers lots of privacy/relaxation. Our street is lined with lots of trees & there are tennis courts and a nice park down the street. Our house is just a half mile from the Open Space trails to walk, run, or ride your bike. The Walnut Creek BART station is easy to access for traveling to San Francisco & all other parts of the Bay Area. We are: (1) 27 miles from San Francisco; (2) a 5 min. drive to BART (public transportation to SF); (3) a 40 min. drive to Napa Valley/Sonoma (wine country); (4) a 5 min. drive to downtown Walnut Creek.
Getting around
BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) is the best! The No.2 County Connection Bus outside our driveway will take you downtown and BART weekdays during commute times.
