LAFAYETTE VACATION VILLA RENTAL DESCRIPTION This villa boasts unbelievable views of Diablo Valley to the Oakland Hills. It is a custom adobe home decorated with Early California/ Spanish Revival antiques; speaking of the early settlers of Lafayette in the 1860's. Located between Berkeley and Walnut Creek, the Schneider Residence is found in the hills above St.Mary's College, in rural Hunsaker Canyon. Only ten minutes from town and the 24 freeway, the house speaks immediately of another time, a vacation away from the mundane. Terra Cotta floors, high ceilings, commanding views from every window. It is decorated with antlers, saddles, and even a full size bear. Talk about a Kodak photo opportunity! Native California plantings, including cactus on 300 degree patios around house. The house sleeps twelve in luxury. It was was designed with 4 foot wide hallways and handicapped accessible all around the property except for the loft. (If you need to use any equipment like a walker, toilet seat elevator, shower stool, just say the word!) Gourmet kitchen, amenities galore! Lafayette is the center of Lamorinda, three cities known for low crime rates, excellent schools, and high end shopping. From the house you can hear the bells of St.Mary's College in Moraga! We are just up the hill from Wildwood Acres Resort. That makes the home the perfect place for a bridal retreat or rehearsal dinner site! We have also had many small weddings and renewal ceremonies on site. Fabulous for photos!
