When you are visiting the Bay Area, house hunting, on a job assignment, spending time with family, or just want a peaceful place to be or to write, this serene, comfortable hotel alternative in nature may be perfect for you.
Small, separate cottage-like room with windows on three sides opens onto a Japanese garden and ancient oaks. Separate full bathroom is a few steps away.
Amenities include: free high speed internet and Wi-Fi, mini-fridge, microwave, electric tea kettle, laundry, use of hammock and outdoor barbecue. There is also an 11x11 foot screened in "gazebo" tent on a platform with bed, foam mattress and down comforter for sleeping outdoors amidst the oaks, available to you if no other guests have booked it. There is lots and lots of off-street parking and room to roam on a full acre.
Secluded setting yet only a 10-minute walk to the little village of Orinda where you’ll find a host of restaurants, movie theater, drugstore, ice cream shop, and Peet’s (and Starbucks) coffee; five minutes further walking will take you to the Orinda BART station. So, while it is handy to have a car, it's not essential.
Orinda is well-situated out of the Bay Area fog belt, only 25 minutes by direct BART train to downtown San Francisco, even closer to Berkeley and Oakland in one direction, Concord and Walnut Creek in the other. Easy access to the wine country an hour away. Also super convenient for performances at the California Shakespeare Theater (Cal Shakes) in Orinda.
Light breakfast snacks including Peet's coffee are provided.
Sometimes, a Breakfast Basket with a delicious full breakfast may magically appear outside your door...
You may never want to leave!
(No smoking or pets please)
* The cottage room is not large; probably best for a single or a compatible couple (and/or a couple with a small child). There is lots of outdoor space however.
No smoking or drugs, please.
By late evening, use earphones if you want to listen to loud music.
The main rule is to enjoy yourself in a natural environment, close to all the action in the Bay Area, but far enough away so you can reconnect with the natural world and be really refreshed for your adventures.

I've traveled a lot and I know what a difference a great place to stay makes.
I am really enjoying being an airbnb host and being able to share this lovely place where I live.
It would be a pleasure to welcome you here.
I work for a not-for-profit, The Pachamama Alliance. Check it out!
