San Francisco Bay Area retreat centrally located, private, family friendly, walk downtown & train

Our private hillside home is within the San Francisco Bay Area. Lafayette is centrally located in the Bay Area allowing you easy access into the heart of San Francisco, the Pacific Ocean beaches, the Tahoe mountains, Napa/Sonoma wine country, and Yosemite/California Redwood Forests. We are just a short 2-minute drive to town, public transportation, or the freeway. Walk downtown to restaurants, shops, listen to live music in the park, or catch the local transit-BART and head into Oakland, Berkeley or San Francisco. We have an incredibly friendly safe neighborhood full of children playing and neighbors out walking and connecting.

Our 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom - master bedroom has a queen and private bathroom, bedroom twin trundle to king, bedroom twin bunk bed. Our home is a great retreat as well as a home base to shoot off to adventures within the area. Suburban neighborhood with lots of families of all ages. House sits up on hill giving very private feel with views of the local hills and mountains. Outside space has tree fort with slide and grass area. Multiple outdoor sitting and dining areas to relax. Our home backs up to open space allowing for you to enjoy the wildlife or jump on a trail for a hike to capture spectacular views of Mt. Diablo, Las Trampas, the reservoir, or the delta. Or stay home and enjoy the garden full of hummingbirds, butterflies, veggie garden and fruit trees. We have chickens that lay fresh eggs daily (they take feeding once every few days and can be given to friends to watch while away if preferred). We are a musical family and have a piano, drum set, and guitar. Our home is extremely kid-friendly if need be. We have lots of boy & girl toys with legos, art supplies, a tree fort with slide, bikes, and toys (all can be hidden away if you don't have a need). We also have a Peloton bike and weights for those who have an interest to stay in shape or get in shape!
