Newly renovated country suburban home less than a mile from Lafayette & Walnut Creek border. Clean, comfortable, new paint, carpets and furnished with casual furnishings. The home is comfortable and the neighborhood is very safe and family friendly. Its a large property that backs up to canal and neighborhood walking trail. We are near park, community pool, shopping, and more. It's a 20 minute walk or 5 min drive to two BART stations with everything you need just a few minutes away. Quick commute to Berkeley, Oakland and San Francisco. The nearest beaches are within 35 minute to 50 minute drive. Sierra mountains and Tahoe are reachable in 3.5 hours drive. We just cleared about 8 pine trees so the yard has lots of light. It is more like a private park in the back yard with oak trees, a palm tree and a giant redwood. We regularly see squirrels, falcons, ducks and crows hanging out. The house is away from the street so its very private. Very safe family neighborhood with public pools, trails, wildlife museum and parks within walking distance.

I'm a california native who grew up in this area and have a deep appreciation for the bay area and all it has to offer. If you're visiting from out of town or another country, do not hesitate to ask for guidance about local activities, great day trips, and cultural opportunities in northern california and the san francisco bay area. If I know what you tastes I can suggest things that would be the best fit for you, your family and friends.
Ashley purchased this House in 2015
Why Ashley chose Pleasant Hill
We bought this home because of the land, the house was originally built in the 50's and we have just done alot of upgrades, new carpets, and new sinks, toilets & fixtures in the bathrooms. We spent 3 months clearing the land and transforming the house into what it is today. Currently we have a tiny home at the other end of the property and in the coming years we plan to will build a barn and another full size home to create a family compound. This is a wonderful place that was selected to create our own private paradise and live out our days on the porch with our family and friends. In the meantime we are happy to share it with guests.
What makes this House unique
It's a wonderful peaceful and safe neighborhood. The house is set off the streets with a very private backyard that is over a half acre lot and another tiny home at the other end of the property. It backs up to the canal and walking/biking trail. There are wonderful trails you can take up into the hills, through the neighborhood that go on for miles in each direction as well as a nice park and wildlife museum a few blocks away.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. You must contact the owner directly to request cancellation.
We stayed in this cute little house and we had a great and relaxing time! There's a trail right next to the house, and it's close to the hills for biking trips. Also, this house is close to grocery stores and not far from the freeway which is very convenient but still very quiet. We loved the location and the house itself. The owner was very kind and always responded our texts when we had questions. Our favorite room? The sunroom!
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. And thank you for taking such good care of the place it was such a pleasure to host you. :)
Very nice cottage!
This small home was very comfortable. It has lots of room and the mattresses and bedding are great! Kitchen was well stocked and it had a very nice patio in the backyard! Thanks Ashley for everything!
Comfortably cozy cottage.
My family and I truly enjoyed our stay.
+ quiet, pleasant neighborhood, close to supermarkets, shopping, eating, BART. Great location for visiting the Bay Area;
+ the home has a warm, welcoming atmosphere; plenty of space;
+ well equipped with all the necessary (except for a corkscrew...);
+ the hammock in the patio is surely a nice touch!;
+ the backyard is huge and it's great for hanging out and cookouts
- backyard looks a little wild, with overgrown weeds;
- house itself seems a little old and in need of some remodeling (i.e. the windows).
Overall, the pluses outweigh the few minuses and our stay was truly memorable. Recommended :-)
My family and I found this house to be very comfortable, sunny, casual and beautifully located. I live in the area and needed a bigger place to house and entertain family & friends as we gathered together for a week prior to the memorial service of a loved one. This was a perfect spot as it has a welcoming ambiance, quiet, secluded and pretty surroundings.
Overall we liked the house. It was great for the price and had the space we needed for the kids. A few things of note are that it is older than the pics show. The bathrooms definitely showed it and the back shower filled up with water when showering. There were also a lot of spiders and cobwebs. Nothing terrible but just little things for future reference. The biggest issue we faced was parking. Our Explorer didn’t fit in the garage so parking far to the side was necessary. The neighbor parked in front of his house made exiting really difficult. And the overhanging tree dropped sap all over our car that after two Details we still can’t remove. That’s probably our biggest issue. Ashley was very nice and responsive, but some of the other things overshadowed the positive.
An Amazing Place
We absolutely loved our stay at this VRBO! Great location, amazing property. Lots of room inside and out. We couldn't have found a better place to stay. I can't say enough great things about this lovely home. I would absolutley recommend to anyone looking for a rental in this area. You won't be dissappointed.
