The space

The Apartment is a completely separate structure from the main house with its own private entrance. We have a detached garage and the Apartment is directly above it. It has a full kitchen with all the amenities: stove, microwave, and refrigerator. It is fully stocked with all the kitchen supplies you need to prepare a meal. It has a full size bathroom with a tub/shower combo. There is a comfy queen size bed, a huge closet, dresser, tv, and loveseat sofa. We also provide access to free WI FI.

The neighbourhood

We are centrally located to main Bay Area attractions and destinations. We are between San Francisco and Napa. There are no water views from the Apartment but right around the corner, steps away, are nice trails along San Pablo Bay to enjoy the water and sunset views.

If you don't want to cook, there are two restaurants around the corner on opposite ends of the block, THE POWDER KEG AND LEILA'S CAFE.

Getting around

Nearby public transportation takes you to BART, and from Monday through Friday, there is non-stop LYNX bus service to downtown San Francisco. Pharmacy, shops and various restaurants are within 1 to 2 miles. Trader Joe's is 3 miles down the road.

Other things to note

The Apartment is clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated. There is limited available lodging in the area and the neighboring town of Pinole, this is the perfect place when visiting friends or family in the area. It is also perfect for business professionals who may prefer to be in a home-like setting rather than a hotel.

There are plenty of free street parking within steps to the Apartment.

We require the full name of the additional guest besides the one named on the Reservation Confirmation. Please provide this information through email.

Rented cottage out for my parents, who were visiting from out of town. Their stay was comfortable. I would certainly recommend this apartment to others.

I recommend Lorena's place for all my friends, family and business associates who come to visit the East Bay Area. So far everyone loved it and was very comfortable with the accommodations.

Our luxurious stay at Lorena´s place was my first AirBnB experience, second floor, quiet and private, baby-friendly, a very lovely room with ample amenities. I stayed with a 7-month old daughter. Responsive host.

Hi I'm Lorena,

I have been living in the Bay Area for over 30 years. I enjoy traveling and seeing all the different places in the world and especially love spending time with my husband and kids. I also enjoy going for walks in my neighborhood along the trails where I can enjoy the views of San Pablo Bay.

We welcome you to our home.
