Delightful stay!

Cozy, comfortable, quiet cottage. Convenient to the BART and groceries.

My wife and I had a wonderful experience.

Evelyn was there if needed but respected our privacy, also.

House is very charming. It's off the street behind the owner's house and very private. Living room, bedroom, bathroom, kitchenette all perfect size for a lovely stay. Very clean and stocked -- dishes, linens, etc. There was a problem with the door lock but Evelyn took care of it right away and replaced the lock. There was not a tea kettle (but really, just about everything else). I mentioned it to Evelyn and she supplied one within five minutes. She was available for any concern, but did not interfere with my stay at all. Looking forward to booking this place again.

Wonderful place to stay with a beautiful garden

  • 5 of 5

The house was just the perfect size, wonderful inside, and just blocks away from downtown Lafayette. We walked every morning to eat breakfast in a nearby restaurant. Would definitely stay again.

We loved staying in the cottage. It was perfectly located near downtown Lafayette, the highways and bart. It was very secluded, cozy and charming. We plan on staying there whenever we are in the Bay Area visiting family.
