Management response:

Thanks Nancy. We loved having you.

About the neighbourhood
We have a lake outside our house which makes for a lovely walk. We are in a very safe neighborhood. You can hear the birds during the day and see the stars at night. Orinda is a small town but has lots of good restaurants and an old wonderful movie theater.
Getting around
You can park off street at our house. We are in a wonderful area for walks and runs too.
Car advised
How to get there
We are about 25 minutes from Oakland airport and maybe 35 minutes from San Francisco International Airport. We are a little over a mile from BART which is our rapid transit train which takes you all over the Bay Area. You can park off street at our house.
