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.

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.

Great place for large group gathering, fabulous views, water activities!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this as a gathering place for Thanksgiving after our traditional spot was destroyed in the Napa fire. It was a very tall order to be able to find a place of joy after such a loss, but this place filled the bill! The host was kind and supportive, and the house was perfect. The large, well-appointed kitchen had no problem with turkey, trimmings, and three pies! The dining table was more than ample with a fireplace AND spectacular waterfront sunsets. Beds were plentiful and comfortable. TONS of little nooks for small subgroups to play cards, build with blocks, or enjoy quiet conversation. The paddle boat was a bonus--big hit!

Company Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our large group (18 people) came here for a weekend company retreat. The house was lovely and very accommodating for our group. There were enough beds for everyone, although you will most likely be sharing rooms, and everything was very clean. We cooked a giant meal for dinner one night and had probably five people in the kitchen cooking (dishes, pots, and pans are provided). Also, really amazing selection of spices for cooking!! It was also nice that we could all fit at the dinner table. Probably the best part of this property is its location on the water. It made for the perfect relaxing weekend. In late summer, the weather is hot but the water is perfect temperature for swimming or lounging on the multiple floaties that Lynne provides. The paddle boat is incredibly fun to take out (just be careful getting back to the house due to the current!)

Lynne was super helpful and a great host. She provides a massive document with DETAILED information on the house, property rules, nearby attractions, how to turn on the slide, etc. I loved this and found it very helpful for planning. Also, when we arrived we at first couldn't get into the house (didn't know the code). I called Lynne and she picked up and was able to help instantly. Lynne is a kind and reliable host!

Overall, I would definitely recommend this property for large groups looking for a relaxing weekend by the water.

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.
