About The Owner

62 year old retired realtor. Loves horses and outdoor sports. I have horses on the property and enjoy riding.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1990

Why The Owner chose Oakland

The setting is to die for. When you drive down the driveway you feel as though you are miles away from everything, yet you are only minutes away! The peace and setting nurture your mind.

What makes this cottage unique

Bucolic views, sounds of nature, wildlife and warmer weather that Montclair village.

Wonderful weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We had such a lovely time staying here for a mini family reunion! Both sets of parents flew in from the Midwest for the weekend and our place was too small to host so we rented this house and it was just perfect. We had so much fun just hunkering down next to the fire, drinking wine and playing board games. It's the perfect escape as it's very close to the city, but feels like a million miles away. I would definitely go back.

The kitchen was well equipped and worked great for cooking meals at home! Such a lovely retreat!

1850 sf Cottage!

  • 5 of 5
This charming hideaway, is very large and killer views! You have your own private yard with view, or enjoy the common pool area. Giant trees and mature landscape making you feel like you are part of the park adjacent! Some very good hiking and mountain bike trails (all degrees of difficulty), are a short drive one direction or about a mile walk the other direction . Randy and Sue could not be nicer, and the dogs are cool and respect your space. We enjoyed a week at Thanksgiving and spent 3 days here over Easter! Perfect weather both times. Only downside is small kitchen but the peaceful setting and beauty make up for any negatives! I am a fireplace guy, and this place has two of them. Plenty of wood!

I'm in Love.

I believe that great things must be shared. Such is the case for this hidden gem.

First, let me tell you now that our experience of staying at this property was nothing short of memorable.

Though this property is listed as being a "Cottage", I personally think that it should be labeled as a "Spa" or even a "Personal Resort".

No offense to Sue, but the photos and description of the property don't do it justice. Believe me, I'm a photographer.

The crowning glory of your stay will be to watch a magnificent sunrise through the pristine wilderness behind the cottage, uninterrupted by houses or freeways. The experience is simply magical.

From the one lane private driveway to the beautifully manicured garden, filled with flowers and plants, I knew our stay was to be perfectly relaxing and fun. The pool and hot tub area was a great place to hangout and get a tan in the day, and unwind with great company and a bottle of wine at night.

The cottage itself is also at the same level of classy personal touch. From the beautiful hardwood floors, rustic door handles, and two brick fireplaces you will never think of this place as being short of exquisite character. The bedrooms are a good size with very comfortable beds, and there are plenty of closet space. The kitchen is fully equipped and besides a waffle maker, there was nothing else that we wished to have brought.

Lastly, we all know that one of the make or breaks of picking a place to stay are the people who own the property and keep it beautiful. So I want to thank Sue, Randy, Claire and Loki, the Australian shepherd, for being very welcoming and accommodating! They made us feel like friends from out of town.

So if you do make the right decision and book the property, I just have one big request. Please don't burn the cottage down. My family and I want to create more unforgettable memories at this oasis.

Oakland Hills home, redwoods and Mt. Diablo views

  • 5 of 5
Great home base for visiting family in the East Bay and day tripping with our kids around SF area. Comfy home with ranch-motif furnishings, pool and hot tub access, relaxing garden setting, redwoods on property, sunroom and private back patio with forest framed views of Mount Diablo, and lots of parking for visitors. Plenty of living space to host family dinners. 2 BR, 2 BA, all the amenities. I almost don't want to review this place so I can keep it all to myself.

AWESOME!!

  • 5 of 5
The pictures don't do this place justice. Fantastic view all you see are hills and trees around you. Quiet and safe. I came up for my daughters wedding with my parents and children. Plenty of room, and very relaxing environment. The owners are super nice, and just really good people. One of the nicest experiences I have ever had with VRBO rentals. The décor is rustic American as is the feel and look. I just cant say enough good things about this place. I would have been happy just to spend a week and hang out. They have the most amazing looking cedar tree on the property that I could only compare to a banyan tree, must be over a hundred years old. So if your in this area do yourself a favor and stay here. You wont be disappointed.

What a wonderful oasis! We had a very relaxing few days in Oakland Hills and our dog was welcome, too! We had family dinners in the dining room with a roaring fire and the view toward Mt. Diablo was just beautiful. We enjoyed everything.
Thank you so much!
