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: The guest bedroom: guests have a private bedroom, en-suite bathroom, large walk-in closet and access to common areas. 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. 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 in the utility room. 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.

Gene Harmon purchased this house in 2011
Why Gene Harmon chose Walnut Creek
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.
What makes this house unique
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.
