Don Piper purchased this house in 1986
This is my home. I hardly ever used the lower portion so I have had it professionally converted. It is a wonderful place to stay if you like quiet, a valley view and quick access to San Francisco.
Lots of natural light, tranquil views, large patio area for sitting out side, jump in the pool to cool off in the summer or sit in front of the outdoor gas fireplace.
Don Piper's guest apartment is well situated, comfortable, and easy to use and he is a marvelous host. Don ensures that everything is clean, in good working order, and comfortable. The apartment looks out on a small patio, garden, and swimming pool, which Don shared with us generously. Our 2016 visit was the third time we stayed in Don's apartment, which shows how much we appreciate it and him!
The cottage was lovely and very comfortable. All the amenities you could possibly need.
The views are spectacular and lush with vegetation! Gorgeous flower's everywhere! We had great weather while we were there and relaxed around a beautiful pool. We felt spoiled!
The owner was very accommodating and helpful. We'll definitely be back!

What brought us to Lafayette was their annual arts festival (we were vendors) and staying close to the "downtown" area. We were lucky to find this perfect spot amongst the trees (and coyotes and deer!), with a private entry, with everything we needed and more. It was bright and airy (windows open-or great AC), had a comfy bed, a washer/dryer for our use, a fully equipped kitchen and a great shower (no tub, which we prefer). Don (the owner) was a pleasure to work with, and very accommodating. We would highly recommend Don's Place to anyone traveling to the area (easy drive to San Francisco or Napa or Marin).
Once again, and for the fourth time we so enjoyed our stay. Our family and friends are nearby so this really works. I can not say enough about Don's hospitality, a most gracious host. Not surprising this will be where we will be next August, can't wait.
We had the pleasure of staying in the beautiful rental for two weeks.Don the owner gave us a very in depth walk through. The apt. is very comfortable , very modern and has everything you could possibly need. Has a great deck with a wonderful outdoor fireplace & basic barbecue. The pool looked very appealing but not with the cold weather.Beautiful deck around pool, where I did my afternoon reading.Although you are in a very beautiful neighborhood you are only minutes from the freeway entrance. We will return again. 10 stars for this property
This is an excellent place to wind down and rest. We visited are kids here and used Don's car wow what a ride. Very clean place we used the pool and did laundry. Why would anyone stay at a hotel? We will stay here everytime were in California. Thanks Don for everything.
