About Joanna Haskin
I live on property. I love living in Moraga and hope you will enjoy your time here and take advantage of all Moraga and the Bay Area has to offer. Being part of the hosting community is a wonderful experience and I especially enjoy meeting people from all over the US and world. Offering a welcoming and comfortable environment for travelers away from home is my top priority and I am happy to help enhance your stay to make it as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. I have lots of local resource information and hidden gem tips on where to go, where to eat and favorite spots of the locals. I keep travel guides and a local guide to Moraga in the In-law unit for your use to help you navigate your time here. Look forward to meeting you and having you stay with us.

Terrific quiet location, wonderful host
All is provided for in this warm inviting space. The bed is comfortable, the outside deck is delightful. Enjoyable shower. Comfortable table and chairs for eating; comfortable soft large lounge chair. Joanna is a kind, considerate and charming person who welcomes you and is there if you need her, but she does not interfere. Chocolate chip cookies on arrival waiting with two bottles of water; a pound of ground starbucks's coffee also there for you--delicious in the morning. Joanna is generous. Cups, saucers, plates, silverware, hot plate, microwave--pretty much everything that you need. It all makes for an enjoyable stay at an economical price. Safeway is within walking distance, along with other stores, including a wonderful wine store. It's also health giving to walk around the country club expanse where this is located. This was my wife's and my second stay at this property, so right there, that says a lot about our favorable experience in staying here. We appreciated it greatly and enjoyed our time, slept well, and relaxed in a solid vacation mode occasioned by our staying here.
Thank you! We were so happy to host you and Jan again. You're welcome anytime. Hope to have you back again! You're lovely guests.
