Hi my name is Susan DeFesi,and with husband Don we have 6 grown children between us and 15 grandchildren. I enjoy cooking, gardening while Don is a former Bay Area Radio Personality who has been in the wine business 20 years. We truly enjoy entertaining family and friends. We have lived in the Bay Area over 50 years and know all the best restaurants, theatre and winery's to visit. As empty nester's we travel around the world while making new friends along the way. I have worked in the Costco Regional Buying office for over 22 years with Don selling wine across the nation. Come for a visit, but stay for the wine....

Susan DeFesi purchased this house in 2005

First and foremost the weather and proximity to San Francisco and everything it has to offer. The weather allows you to get out and enjoy life in so many ways 365 days a year with our San Francisco's entertainment and fine dining to the beaches of Half Moon Bay, Santa Cruz, Carmel and Monterey. It's hard to believe we get to call this home.

The weather is warm and wonderful for several months a year with mild winters allowing day trips to Napa, Sonoma, San Francisco, Mt Diablo in our back yard. A 20 minute walk on the Iron Horse Trail to town for shopping and eating at some of the best restaurants in the world. Quaint, quiet with trails for biking, running or walking from Danville to Walnut Creek or south to Pleasanton. Walk to dinner, explore Mt Diablo. Visit San Francisco's Golden Gate park and all of the museums they offer.

Perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this lovely duplex in April, 2014. It was very large and even better than pictured. We have 2 small boys who were 2 and 4 at the time. It was nice to be able to let them play outside without having to worry since it was fenced in. The inside was very spacious and there was even a supply of toys. The kitchen was very well equipped, and we cooked a number of meals there.

The setting is very nice, walking distance to the pool, and walking trails. Very quiet, calm, and safe.

Sue was helpful throughout the process and made us feel very welcome. We will definitely stay again if we return to the area!

Delightful Danville

  • 5 of 5
Could not ask for a better experience. The home was roomy and luxurious. The outdoor spaces were great (we were outside every evening). Kitchen cabinets and refrigerator were stocked with the necessities; so all we needed to buy was the food itself. Downtown Danville is quaint and fun; don't miss it. Of course, the BEST part was Susan, our host. She was charming, friendly, and very helpful. Definitely a TERRIFIC stay!!!

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful place to stay to tour the Bay area! The home had everything we could possibly need and the owners are wonderful hosts. The home itself is beautiful, spacious, and well equipped. The outdoor area is perfect for grilling and relaxing in the evening. The kids loved the neighborhood pool, tennis, and basketball courts. Danville is a wonderful town, only about 35 minutes to San Francisco. We were driving distance from Carmel, Monterey, Sausalito, Stanford University, and Yosemite National Park. It was great to go from the 65 degree temps in the city, and come back to Danville for an evening swim, where it was in the 80's. We would highly recommend this home!

Beautiful property inside and out

  • 5 of 5
The house and location were perfect for our needs. The cleanliness, appearance and amenities exceeded our expectations! We had 6 adults and 2 young children...there were even toys for the kids. We enjoyed the beautiful patios in the mornings and evenings. The owners were very helpful and friendly. We took day trips to Sacramento, San Francisco, Napa Valley, Muirwoods, and Half Moon Bay. We would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives and would stay there again if we got the chance!

Beautiful, comfortable, great ammenities!

  • 5 of 5
We had a large group and this two-story duplex was fantastic. It has a large outdoor patio that is really comfortable to relax in and includes a barbecue and fire pit. The kitchen has all the appliances you'd ever need and it was a great place to cook. The whole place is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Susan, the owner, is lovely - helpful and friendly. The house is close to downtown Danville which has so many nice shops and restaurants. We had a great time and would definitely stay there again.
