We're a family of four (kids are college age and now mostly only here to visit) who have lived in the Bay Area for the past 25+ years, and at this location for the past 9. We feel extremely fortunate to have such an incredibly beautiful and relaxing place to call home, and we very much enjoy having our guests experience this part of the Bay Area. We've worked hard to maintain a comfortable, natural feel to our property and love being surrounded by beautiful California landscape and wildlife. Having been here so long, we're a wealth of information regarding places to visit and things to do--off the beaten path.

Brenda purchased this cottage in 2006

Orinda is a beautiful, wooded, central location from which to access the entire Bay Area.

Our property is a private, secluded, retreat-like setting--the perfect place to 'come home to' after a busy day of sight-seeing, tourist activity or hard work. It offers easy freeway and BART access, yet once you're here that world is a galaxy away. We take pride in having maintained a comfortable, well-maintained but casual and welcoming environment.

PERFECT LOCATION

  • 5 out of 5
I've stayed at the cottage twice and it is the perfect location, especially if you have a student at St Mary's College. Being close to the freeway and, more importantly, BART, allows you to enjoy all the sights in the bay area. At the end of the day the quiet location give you a nice respite from the big city. Don and Brenda are great hosts and I look forward to visiting again.

PEACEFUL RETREAT IN THE BAY AREA

  • 5 out of 5
Recently spent 3 wonderful weeks at Orinda cottage seeing family and friends. It is a well-appointed, centrally-located home away from home in a beautiful setting. The cottage is set among hills and trees, seeming to be a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of the SF Bay Area, but you can hop on to the freeway and go either north to Walnut Creek and Concord or south to the rest of the East Bay, San Francisco and even the Peninsula. It is also very convenient to BART, but you do need a car to get anywhere. Our hosts were very kind, generous with their time and respected our privacy. We were traveling with two small dogs and they had a great time, meeting their first deer and playing (with supervision) on the large lovely lawn. We would recommend this property without reservation and hope to stay there on our future trips to California.

MY HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 out of 5
This is my home away from home. I have had extended stays here for the last 4 years. The perfect location is combined with a very complete, clean,well appointed, one bedroom cottage. The surroundings are so tranquil including the beautiful old tree out the front door and the turkey and deer you sometimes see on the property. Also, there is a great view from the bedroom. It gives you the feeling you are looking out of a tree house over the beautiful view. Don and Brenda are the perfect hosts. Very friendly, hospitable, very responsive, but respect your privacy. They are constantly adding things to make their guests stay better. It is fun to comeback and see what's new. As far as I am concerned this is the best VRBO offering in the bay area and I will return every year to this gem.

AN EXCEPTIONAL BAY AREA RETREAT

  • 5 out of 5
I've just returned from spending nearly two weeks in this gem of a property in beautiful Orinda, California. The owners, Brenda and Don, were gracious and responsive on every level and the cottage was private, clean and extremely comfortable and cozy. It was a great pleasure to awaken peacefully in this pastoral setting knowing that I had easy access by car or BART to the greater Diablo Valley, Berkeley, Oakland, San Francisco, and the wine country. I'll miss starting my day at Peet's Coffee in the quaint village of Orinda but know for sure that I'll be a return customer! Thank you Brenda and Don for a memorable stay.

LOVELY COTTAGE IN BEAUTIFUL, PEACEFUL LOCATION

  • 5 out of 5
My boyfriend and I stayed at Brenda's and Don's lovely cottage in Orinda for four nights. The cottage was exactly as shown in the pictures, except cleaner and better! Everything was immaculate. The bed was super comfy, the bathroom was spotless, and the owners provided everything we needed for a cozy getaway. For those not familiar with the Bay Area, Orinda is a charming little town that is an easy drive to Betkeley, Oakland, Napa, San Francisco, and Silicon Valley. The cottage's surroundings are peaceful and scenic. We even saw two deer and a flock of wild turkeys! Make sure to get breakfast at Village Inn Cafe just down the street. We will definitely stay with Brenda and Don again the next time we're back in the Bay. :)
