About Don Piper
I am a professional in wealth management and work in nearby Walnut Creek (less than 7 miles away)
Don Piper purchased this House in 1986
Why Don Piper chose Orinda
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.
What makes this House unique
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.

The unit is light , bright and very clean. It’s modern with all the amenities you might require.
The setting and location of the property is ideal. You are set among the trees, but can be on the freeway in a matter of minutes.
Quiet Getaway Spot
Great location and just like home. Nice, quiet, and comfortable accommodations; clean and neat. We needed a place for the week and this worked out great. Don, our host, was very accommodating and helpful. Will stay there again when the opportunity arises.
Comfortable home away from home!
Don was exceptionally friendly and easy to work with. Stayed here for five weeks and he truly went out of his way to make it feel like home. It was clean and had many personal touches. Thanks Don 😊�
Our “Second” home.
Don Piper is the perfect host, the rental has everything you’ll need. I would say good for a couple or single it’s pretty cozy. This has been, again, our go to place when we visit our family, actually can’t remember how many times we’ve been there, no matter the season it’s so much of our visit.
These folks have been wonderful tenants. I hope they keep coming back.
Tranquil retreat from home demolition.
We actually live in the same lovely neighborhood and needed a retreat from some remodeling work in our house and this property proved the ideal solution. Modern and clean accommodation with all the essentials needed for a home away from home.
Lovely and private
We were displaced by the Atlas fire and after 5 nights in hotels found this lovely place that felt more like home. It was very comfortable snd quiet. The location is very conveniently located to the freeway and downtown Lafayette. We ate at Chow, Sideboard and Cooperage. All were good. The rest of the time we cooked at the place. Whole foods and Diablo market are close by. Everything we needed to prepare our meals was there. Thank you Don for the great place to stay we would highly recommended this lovely get away
Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review.
