I've stayed with Linda and Erik twice, once in July of '17 and again in February. That I returned (and will again) tells you how much I've enjoyed my stays in their home. Why? The house is beautiful, surrounded by trees and gardens. My room is on the second floor, private and isolated from their rooms on the first floor at the other end of the house. Everything was spotless, the bed comfortable with soft linens. Linda and Erik were gracious hosts, ready to help when asked but respectful of my privacy. Orinda is one of the Bay Area's most exclusive neighborhoods, and their house felt secure and safe which is extremely important for me as a single woman, traveling alone. A great place to rest your head or to relax -- In July I enjoyed their swimming pool, outdoor pool table, and bar-b-que.
I was very happy here.
A beautiful place near BART with great pool and yard... nice area to walk around... comfortable big house... room has private bathroom and sitting area... private... clean... nice people. Perfect spot to work, read, sit in the shade. Easy drive to Oakland or San Francisco.
I have been staying with Linda and Erik since 2011. They are wonderful, gracious hosts, with a spotless home in a beautiful woodland setting, with a lovely swimming pool for hot days. The location is about a mile from the Orinda BART station, and so is convenient to San Francisco and Oakland. The peace and tranquility they offer is perfect after a busy day in the city. I make sure to book a room every time I visit the bay area.
I felt extremely welcome and the hosts became my friends instantly! I was starved when I came in the first night and Linda gave me a beautiful bowl of fruit. I felt free to come and go and yet Linda and Erik were always there for me.
