About Don Piper

I am a professional in wealth management and work in nearby Walnut Creek (less than 7 miles away)

Don Piper purchased this house in 1986

Why Don Piper chose Lafayette

This is my home. I hardly ever used the lower portion so I have had it professionally converted. It is a wonderful place to stay if you like quiet, a valley view and quick access to San Francisco.

What makes this house unique

Lots of natural light, tranquil views, large patio area for sitting out side, jump in the pool to cool off in the summer or sit in front of the outdoor gas fireplace.

Ideal

  • 5 of 5

Could not have picked a better place. The owner was very accommodating and responsive. Though the a/c has some issues we just opened the window to let the cool evening breeze in. Extremely comfortable bed and well furnished kitchen which we used for making breakfast each morning. Very spatial for a couple comparable to a deluxe suite in any fine hotel! Then there is the patio as shown in the picture which we used in the morning after a swimming laps in the beautifully landscaped pool. I also had a cook out (with his permission) for family who lived nearby. . We felt we had the entire patio and pool to ourselves! Would stay there again. Thanks Don!

Overall Good Experience

  • 5 of 5

The rental unit was very clean and comfortable with a neighborhood that felt safe. The location was very convenient with accessibility to different forms of transportation. Don Piper was a very accommodating host and available to answer our questions. When we travel to the area again, we will certainly check for availability.

GREAT ESCAPE

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay and the house was amazing. Loved every minute of it. Staying out of the crowds was very relaxing but having the easy access to the BART and the city was perfect.

great place!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time and will go back again. We did not use the outdoor fireplace or the indoor one, as it was roasty hot, but the pool was wonderful. Clean, well equipped, quiet. The place was all we hoped for and then some. Don, our host, was friendly, easy-going, and fun. The AC worked well and at night we slept with the windows wide open.
