Our sanitized, private 2 bedroom suite is located in a suburb of San Francisco and Berkeley called Lafayette in the East Bay. We neighbor Walnut Creek and are close to Hwys. 24/680. We are a 5-8 minute drive to the Lafayette BART station. San Francisco is a 25 minute train ride and when there is no traffic a quick 30 minute drive to downtown SF (with traffic add another 15-20 minutes). CAL bound for a game? No problem as we are close to the 24 freeway and a quick drive into Berkeley.
“Great place for my husband and I to crash for a night. Very clean, super comfy bed, coffee, nice deck to drink coffee on. All around great! It’s the back suite off of an occupied house, so the backyard and parts of the deck are closed to guests, which was fine for us as we weren’t looking to hang out at the house too much. Overall, it was an excellent experience!”
You’ll love my place because of the good location, convenience to public transport, the friendly neighborhood, the ambiance.. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids). Although there is just one bedroom, the couch folds down for extra sleeping space. Please be aware that the property is in a hilly area and that there are stairs to navigate which can be challenging if you have large luggage or mobility issues.
“The perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, whether to come home to at the end of a day of sightseeing or to spend the whole day just relaxing on the deck. A lovely view over Deanna’s rooftop to the interesting architecture on the hills across and to the stars at night. We stayed five nights during the shelter in place and were quite content cooking our own meals and spending a lot of time at the sweet guest house. I recommend the hilly neighborhood walks admiring front yard gardens. Friendly hosts. We appreciated their flexibility in dealing with us. Definitely plan to stay there again.”
Forget those SF prices and relax in a backyard paradise that's only a short commute to downtown SF! The Redwood Retreat is a spectacular in-law suite in our gorgeous backyard! You'll wake up to birds chirping and squirrels chasing each other around the redwoods. You'll look out the window and see vibrant colors, even a tropical palm tree! You'll have as much privacy as you'd like but are welcomed to say "hi!” This is a residential area, so you’ll need to use ride-sharing or drive to get around.
“Really lovely little space! Loved the private access entry and the room had everything I needed for a one night stay in Oakland. The yard was lovely as well. My only thing was that the area seemed a little sketchy - at one point while sitting in my car upon arrival a woman was walking around looking into everyone’s car on the street, but granted it’s San Francisco so I realize that just kind of goes with the area. Otherwise a great stay!”
