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 The Bay Area

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.

Nice and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The rental is the guest quarters attached to the main home. It is spacious, clean with lots of light. There is a separate private entrance. The home is near a BART station, which is less than 10 minutes away by car. The neighborhood is quiet and we took advantage of the nice 2.7 mile walk around the nearby reservoir. Don is a gracious host and gave us good recommendations for seafood locally and in the city. We would rent this place again and recommend it to others. Thank you Don.

We had a wonderful stay at Don's place

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was well set up with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Perfect for two people. Separate bedroom, good sized kitchen

Good natural light and very quiet and private.

We spent a lot of time hanging out by the pool and enjoying the outdoor space.

Property was comfortable for our two week stay.

  • 4 of 5

Had a good orientation from the owner upon our arrival. Bed was very comfortable and really appreciated having use of a washer and dryer. Spent most of our time cooking at our son's apartment and would have wanted a few more necessities had we been cooking there. Internet was spotty and slow most of the time.

Coffee beans and grinder a nice touch.
