TRAVELER'S REST MOUNTAIN VIEWS WITH MANY AMENITIES

Walnut Creek House Rental Photos and Description

2100 Sq. Ft./210 sq meters Home

Traveler's Rest has two options. First: Exclusive use for up to two people when the owner is not present guests have use of entire home except one bedroom. Second: Shared Use is also for up to two people with the understanding that the owner shares the home. For more information, read further. Rates are discounted during periods of shared use. See the rate section for this information.

Please note: owner occupies the home except during periods of exclusive use. Your privacy is completely respected.

Location: The edge of beautiful Walnut Creek, CA, 40 minutes from San Francisco and Sacramento airports, Napa and Sonoma Valleys; 30 minutes from Berkeley and San Ramon/Pleasanton. Downtown San Francisco is 40 minutes by BART train. The BART train tracks are close by Traveler's Rest.

Accommodations: First bedroom: guests have a private bedroom, en-suite bathroom, large walk-in closet and access to common areas. A second bedroom has a futon and a queen-sized inflatable bed, TV and couch. Enjoy the living and dining rooms as well as the kitchen for preparing your meals. The hot tub is yours; the two furnished decks and surrounding trees, gardens and peace entice relaxation. Make yourself 'at home'; the owner is sensitive to the privacy needs of the guests and will retreat to assure those needs. The owner's bedroom is separated by a hall, bathroom and closet and there is a separate living room/bedroom upstairs away from the main living room. This is a no smoking property- inside and outside the home. The floors are pristine so socks or slippers are worn by guests and shoes are kept at the front door.

The guest room's queen-sized bed (a Westin Heavenly mattress) and all linens are immaculate. The en-suite bathroom is compact with a stall shower, toilet and sink. WI-FI is available throughout. A washer, dryer, ironing board with iron and hair dryer are available. The home is air-conditioned. The living room opens onto the deck, has a special gas heater and a TV.

Mt. Diablo, seen from the front of the home, has fine hiking trails. Your well-traveled host can suggest many activities as well as excellent restaurants or shopping found in the upscale and attractive city of Walnut Creek.

The home is not suitable for those with mobility issues due to the many outdoor and indoor steps. Driveway parking for one car is available next to the front entryway steps. Additional parking is available on the street. Pets are not allowed.

BART train tracks do pass near the guest room window, but the 'wooshing' sound is not disruptive.

For further information, please feel free to email your host so your stay will be just as you like it.

The owner is a professional in logistics management and transportation consulting.

Gene Harmon purchased this house in 2011

This is my home. There is plenty of space for privacy for guests. It has all new bedroom, living room and dining room furniture. The spa and outdoor deck offer the opportunity to enjoy the birds and critters that live nearby. The home has quick access to BART and highways in all directions. I purchased this secluded property due to proximity to Walnut Creek, the exceptional construction, the quality of the materials and workmanship and the gardens.

There is lots of natural light and plenty of privacy. Jump in the spa on cool nights, watch the stars and enjoy the evening. The living room has a gas fired stove to bring warmth on those cool winter evenings.

This pretty and spacious house is surrounded by a terraced garden. Theres´s a balcony around it where you can find sun or shade. The hot tub is lovely especially in a starry night. The home is clean and tidy. This is a relaxing place to stay and I strongly recommend it.

Great days in Walnut Creek

Our time in Walnut Creek in Travelers Rest was very enjoyable in every way. The whole house is beautiful and so is the garden. Our room and facilities were more than satisfying. The bed is very comfortable and the room is spacious.
The sunny mornings in the kitchen were great. Breakfast table with a view to the walkway and garden. Had the opportunity to see some nice birds too. And the spa is really some extra fun.
The BART train does NOT disturb. We heard it on first evening but the forgot the whole thing. In fact it was very quiet there.
Landlord Gene is a very kind, helpful and easygoing person. Got so much information of all the surroundings. We really appreciated his efforts to give an idea what to do and where to go in Walnut Creek and the surroundings.
We had a great stay in the house. Highly recommended to anyone interested in great views and cozy living.

Great Stay

We enjoyed our stay in Walnut Creek. Gene was a gracious and helpful landlord. He gave us great information on restaurants, directions, and answered all of our inquiries. Our lodging was clean and all that we anticipated. We would recommend staying at this VRBO. There is the passing BART train, but it didn't bother us. Sitting in the kitchen area, and deck looking out to the hills was delightful. Thanks, Gene for all of your help during out stay.
