About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bath ultra-convenient to public transit

Most vacation rentals claim to be close to public transit, however few can boast being able to see the train parking lot from the front gate! While staying here, you will be one short block away from the Pleasant Hill BART station while at the same time enjoying a quiet, single-level home that has just recently been remodeled.

Your condo is located in a gated community with coded access and also features a locked pool area. One covered private parking space is also included with the rental and is located directly in front of the unit. Inside you will have access to a full sized washer, dryer, dishwasher, two televisions, iron and ironing board, hair dryer, coffee maker, and broadband wireless internet access.

The master bedroom has a king sized bed while the guest room has a bunk bed consisting of a queen on the bottom and an XL twin on the top. (see picture) Bedding, pillows, and towels are included of course!

Paul and Diana will be happy to answer any questions.

About Paul Cavanaugh

I've lived in the East Bay my entire life and Walnut Creek was my backyard growing up. Although this is my first vacation rental, I'm a professional real estate manager as well as a jack-of-all-trades handyman and I am always seeking to improve this unit.

Paul Cavanaugh purchased this condo in 2011

Why Paul Cavanaugh chose San Francisco Bay Area

This condominium is ideally situated in the upscale and safe community of Walnut Creek, yet with the BART light rail station just a block away, provides access to the entire San Francisco Bay area.

You'll find at around 1200 sq. ft,. it's significantly larger than most other 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartments with ample room for a family to spread out.

What makes this condo unique

We've shunned the trend towards granitizing everything and feature a vintage 1982 formica faux wood (and nearly indestructible) counter-top in the kitchen along with meticulously restored original latex painted kitchen cabinets.

This assures that you will NOT be paying for our extensive remodeling project, however I think you'll find out that the results of our restoration efforts are fabulous.

Convenient, close to BART, keyless, safe

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place. Host was available for contact, always responded in a timely manner. The condo was close to BART, convenient, safe with gated complex, keyless house entry, and accommodating. The condo is well kept up, has all you will need for your stay. The beds are extremely comfortable, the TV in the master is perfect for those lazy days. Highly recommend this condo.

Amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

Everything as described, perfect location, literally around the corner from Bart Station, we used it to make small tours to San Francisco, Oakland, and nearby attractions. Very relaxed neighborhood. We were traveling with 3 kids and they just enjoyed every day of the stay in the pool. Would definitely come back if there's another chance soon.

Great Location, Love the Pool, Quiet

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect - less than 5 min walk from Bart. Close to a great walking / biking trail that gets you to dwtn WC quickly. Park nearby, shops, restaurants, grocery store, movies... all pretty much within a 10-15 car ride or 10-15 min walk. This is a lower floor, so not a ton of sunlight, but it's been great during the hot summer days - the place stays cool. Paul was fantastic! Great communicator and really accomodating to all requests. We needed a place to stay while our home was being remodeled, this was a perfect place! If you are on a long term assignment, need to stay somewhere for a long period of time, this is a great place! Good size condo - 2 bdrm / 2 bath - one bath room is remodeled, the other a little dated, but functional (attached to the master bath). DW, Laundry INSIDE of the unit was a big bonus. Definitely recommend!!

Clean and Simple

  • 4 of 5

My sisters and I stayed at this condo while visiting another family member. The space was very clean and beds were comfy. The Bart station is literally across the street and made travel to the city so easy. I would definitely stay here again, the price is fantastic!

Great location and space!

  • 4 of 5

For the purpose of our trip, this was a great central location for us! Though we had a rental car, being within walking distance from BART gave us some other options for transportation. The Starbucks within walking distance was another perk! We loved the space of this condo as compared to a hotel for our family of 5 with young children! It was also very helpful that they had a washer and dryer in the unit!! Being able to have a full kitchen where we could prepare some of our meals was important to us as well, and so we liked this unit for that reason. I appreciate that the owner hasn't gone over the top with renovations and thus keeping costs lower for renters. However, some of the outdated areas felt a bit dirty. That is the main thing that kept me from giving this 5 stars, the fact that there were a couple spaces that weren't cleaned very well. Also, we were a bit disappointed that there wasn't a DVD player as we like to bring some of our kid approved videos to use during our "down time" when we travel. Overall, we liked this unit and would consider staying here again when we return to the area.
