About the property

4/5 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 19

This family friendly home gives the feeling of being in a cabin on the water. It is 5-10 minutes from fast water.

This house will accommodate a lot of people very comfortably. It is not a party house.

The house boasts 4/5 bedrooms (one of the bedrooms can be converted to a 5th bedroom by closing the barn door that is down the middle of the room), each with a television; and 4 bathrooms. It has 2 master bedrooms- one with 2 king beds (barn door) and the other with a king and a full. The other bedroom has two twin beds. Upstairs has 3 bunk beds (single over full), a loft, and a bathroom. Downstairs has an open kitchen, with a dining room, a large family room that opens up to the deck. This adjoins a very large living room that has a large bar, large dining tabe and spacious living area with fireplace and entertainment center.

The large glass window allows for gorgeous views of the water, Mount Diablo, and beautiful sunsets. You also have easy access to the deck from here and the family room.

The deck area has dining tables, deck chairs and 2 BBQs.

Down on the dock there is space for 1 boat and room to tether another.

There is a large open water space for floating and water play without danger of boats. Families will have access to a paddle boat, use of the water slide, and floating chairs.

You are 5-10 minutes from fast water.

Renters must be at least 28 years of age and are not to smoke inside the property. Disregard for the house or the neighbors will not be tolerated; and the Rental Agreement is enforced.

We sometimes have several requests for the same dates. To give everyone a fair chance, we will hold dates for only 2 1/2 -3 days from the time a potential tenant receives the Rental Agreement.

If we do not receive the funding and the Rental Agreement in that time, we will release the dates for the next person.

Wedding Party Bliss

  • 5 of 5

I recently got married in the Oakley area at La Grande wedding and event center on a Sunday and was looking for a place large enough for my wedding party ( and spouses/sig others) as well as my husband and I to stay for the wedding weekend since pretty much everyone was coming from out of town. I came across this property in my search and was a little hesitant at first since I felt like I couldn't get a great grasp of the place from the pics; however it was the only property that would fit such a large group!

Let me tell you the pictures do not do this house justice! It was spacious, the kitchen it beautiful and the deck is absolutely to die for. We grilled each night out on the deck as we watched the sun set, took the paddle boat out for a spin, and floated on the river.

Lynne was so communicative prior to the stay and would answer my emails and questions very quickly. The ONLY downside to the stay was that when we got there is was SO HOT inside the house and since its such a huge space it took a really long time to cool the place down and outside was pretty much the same temp...but honestly once it cooled down it was amazing.

Even after the stay when Lynne was very detailed about the cleaning charges (Between the wedding, getting ready, and people coming and going as well as the amount of people staying there) there was a few things missed during our clean up. She took pictures of everything and made sure she was detailed about what was missed.

I cannot thank this family enough for making their home available to strangers it truly was one of the best parts of my wedding weekend. We had the best time ever!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful review. It makes us very happy when people enjoy our home. It is great that our house is big enough that you could use it to turn your wedding day into a wedding week end. We are glad we could help contribute some memories to your special day(s). I am sorry about the house being hot when you arrived and needed to "cool down". The weather was unseasonably hot; and, we had not rented the house in recent days before your arrival. The combination of the heat and the air not being on for some days, created a "hot house" for our arrival. We will certainly take that into consideration for the future. Thank you for being so co operative and understanding. Thank you for your feedback on this matter. Again we are very happy your wedding week end was special and we thank you! We welcome you back anytime. Lynne

Memorable Stay, Amazing House and Owners!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house to celebrate a handful of family birthdays. Our stay exceeded our expectations and left us with a memorable vacation that we are still talking about. This house is FANTASTIC! The layout is perfect for kids and grown ups to have their own spaces to hang out.

Highlights:

I thought the water temp might be too cold to swim, but it was wonderful! We all played in the water for hours! The slide and pedal boat were a huge hit along with the floaties.

Every morning we drank our coffee on the deck and watched boats and the local wildlife cruise by. In the evenings we enjoyed watching beautiful sunsets.

Close proximity to the grocery store, Starbucks, pizza and more! I was able to wait to grocery shop and didn't have to lug coolers and grocery bags from home.

The kitchen is well stocked with supplies. We cooked quite a bit and were impressed that we found everything we needed. We even baked a cake!

Thoughtful and responsive owner! Lynne made sure that all went smoothly and was a pleasure to work with. Thanks Lynne!

We will definitely stay again!!

Discovery Bay family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great house. Work for all age groups. We had ages from 1 to 95 . So much fun getting family together. The kids loved watching the cows in the morning along with all the geese.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for my grandma's 95th birthday. It was important to have a place centrally located and large enough for a couple of families

The owner is very responsive and super easy to deal with in my planning of this birthday event.

This home has everything, it has plenty of beds, bathrooms which are separated giving plenty of privacy.

There is a large living room with a family table for playing cards. There is also a family room connected to the open kitchen. All of this has a view of the water, thru sliding glass doors.

The deck is super big with more that enough chairs for many people. I loved watching the cows drink water from the river.

The dock has a paddle boat that was a huge hit. The slide was my favorite.

We had just the best time.

Great House with Great Owners!

  • 5 of 5

I was asked by the owner to write a review and by looking through all the reviews I saw the one from the person who stayed right before me, Johnathan N. I don't know what he's talking about. These owners were very helpful and attentive. We had a great time and our deposit was returned immediately. The house was clean, comfortable and kid friendly. I normally don't write reviews but was surprised by the last review and that was not our experience at all. We will definitely stay here again!

Fantastic home on the point

  • 5 of 5

This home is fantastic from top to bottom. We had a large group of adults plus our children (16 total) and the house easily accommodated all of us without having to get "cozy". There are two large dinner tables plus a counter-top area for eating. For lounging, the main room has plenty of couch space in front of the tv & stereo systems (with speakers inside & out). Another set of couches and tv are in another family room. The outside is great, too. Situated at the end of a point, you have a view of the main waterway channel...perfect for people-watching. On a beautiful summer night, you will want to be outside on the deck to watch the unbelievable sunsets. The rear of the house faces west and your breath will be taken away as the sun sets behind Mt. Diablo.
