The owners have done a great job transforming this former garage into a charming and well-equipped studio apartment/cottage. Everything we could think of was there, there was plenty of space, and it was all state of the art. The cottage is in the back yard of the main house, with very attractive landscaping, outdoor tables and chairs, etc. The neighborhood is a lovely residential area, about a block from Solano Avenue, which has numerous high quality restaurants and shops. The only drawback is that the nearest BART station is about a 25 minute walk away (and we had no car), but we managed to quickly master the bus schedules and minimize the amount of time spent walking (as opposed to riding) to BART. The bus stop is nearby, and you can find out when the next bus will arrive by dialing 511 or looking online.
