Don Piper purchased this house in 1986
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.
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 apartment is very well-appointed, clean and quiet. I would definitely stay there again.
I've stayed at Don's apartment three times now. It's always clean and very comfortable. I do wish the kitchen were a little better equipped, but that's just a personal preference.
This was our 3rd year staying at Don's There are great reasons we keep coming back. Our son and his family live in Lafayette so it has been very convenient for us. This has truly been home away from home. Don's place is clean and very comfortable. He is extremely accommodating. We had to change our plans and arrive a day early and he was able to arrange that for us. He offers a car to rent which is also a great benefit. His house is not far from Oakland airport, we used an Uber from the airport to the house which worked out very well. Once there we had the car for our convenience. He uses the honor system, so if you don't use it you don't pay. We had very little issues, such as we could not connect with his internet. He resolved this issue very quickly. Another great benefit is that there is a washer and dryer that you may use if desired. He supplies all you need. His back yard is so beautiful. Peaceful and relaxing. You have use of the in-ground pool and the fireplace. He also has a grill you can use if you wish to cook. We highly recommend Don's place if you are visiting the Lafayette area. It is convenient to the Bart, the town of Lafayette and other wonderful sights to see. Don is a wonderful host, we know you will have a great time. Pam and Larry
Don Piper's guest apartment is well situated, comfortable, and easy to use and he is a marvelous host. Don ensures that everything is clean, in good working order, and comfortable. The apartment looks out on a small patio, garden, and swimming pool, which Don shared with us generously. Our 2016 visit was the third time we stayed in Don's apartment, which shows how much we appreciate it and him!
The cottage was lovely and very comfortable. All the amenities you could possibly need.
The views are spectacular and lush with vegetation! Gorgeous flower's everywhere! We had great weather while we were there and relaxed around a beautiful pool. We felt spoiled!
The owner was very accommodating and helpful. We'll definitely be back!

What brought us to Lafayette was their annual arts festival (we were vendors) and staying close to the "downtown" area. We were lucky to find this perfect spot amongst the trees (and coyotes and deer!), with a private entry, with everything we needed and more. It was bright and airy (windows open-or great AC), had a comfy bed, a washer/dryer for our use, a fully equipped kitchen and a great shower (no tub, which we prefer). Don (the owner) was a pleasure to work with, and very accommodating. We would highly recommend Don's Place to anyone traveling to the area (easy drive to San Francisco or Napa or Marin).
The Lafayette Reservoir is very close for long walks, biking,running or hiking, less than 9 miles from UC Berkeley (about 16 minutes at non-rush hour), less than 20 miles from San Francisco, less than 45 miles from the wine country, and about 3 hours from Lake Tahoe.
