About Gregg

We are both native San Franciscans. Gregg is a retired law enforcement officer and Christina is a retired IT professional. We have lived in Danville for 17 years raising our son.

Gregg purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Gregg chose Danville

We choose living in Danville because the town is a charming/quaint town with excellent schools and easy access to San Francisco and all Northern California attractions. Danville is a family-oriented community.

What makes this cottage unique

We fell in love with our home because of the serenity of the property. We built the guest house in 2007 for our son to enjoy with his friends. Since he's now in college, we've decided to convert it to a vacation rental.

A perfect change of pace, gracious hosts and excellent amenities

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the two months stay with Christine and Gregg's beautiful and completely outfitted 2nd building on their property. Located on a very QUIET cul-de-sac, with well maintained attractive garden, swimming pool , barbecue and patio, we could not believe how much we relaxed in new surroundings. A portfolio of local restaurants,,retail and attractions was available. Every request of our hosts was courteously answered and we would highly recommend this location to anyone.

Perfect setup in a beatiful place

  • 5 of 5

A spacious guest house at the end of a cul-de-sac was perfect for us. There are two double trundle beds (which can be put up out of sight) and two large couches. Spotlessly clean. Four pillows on each bed. Plenty of towels. Very quiet, even when outside. The heating was easily controlled. The owner was very nice. We had a nice boquet of flowers. The kitchen was very modern and fully equiped and I cooked a couple of dishes for Thanksgiving easily. It was a little cold to spend much time outside, but it was truely beautiful, with intersting blooming plants and trees and plenty of chairs for entertaining or barbequeing. I will highly recommend this to any friends visiting in the area.

It's difficult to write this review because this rental is an absolute gem and I'm afraid that it will become so popular that we may not get to stay here again. It is a perfect home away from home. The property is beautiful and the unit superb. It is a free-standing building with every amenity one could want: two comfortable beds, two large and comfy couches, a full kitchen, dining area, large TV and bath. Everything worked perfectly. The hostess, Christina, is an incredibly gracious woman who went out of her way to make sure that everything was just as we wanted. We had total privacy, even though the unit is behind the owner's house. If I could give this a rating higher than 5 stars, I would. We had a wonderful time there.

Exquisite setting

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have asked for a more tranquil setting: lush greenery, sparkling pool and secluded setting. Cottage is modern, fully equipped, comfortable and the gigantic flat screen made watching World Cup perfect. The owners are friendly, helpful and ready to do whatever is needed to make the stay comfortable. We would go back in a heartbeat. A full length mirror would be a nice addition.
