Thanksgiving in the Sky

  • 5 of 5
We had a great Family Thanksgiving in the cottage. The kitchen was so well equipped and the owner, Steven, even bought us a roasting pan! The home layout was perfect for the holiday and for entertaining. In fact, if you sit in the loving room and open both front and back doors, you have a view to the bay in the front patio and to Lake Temescal and the mountains in the back! We will be back!

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful property. Having rented many homes on Homeaway, I can easily say this is one of the finest finished and well maintained homes available. Steve (the owner) was wonderful to work with. I will absolutely be renting this home again, and you should too (as long as your dates don't interfere with mine).

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5
Communication with the owner was very fast and easy. Steven is a super nice guy. The place is large, spotlessly clean, appointed with first class amenities, and located in a beautiful neighborhood. Travelers to the cottage will want to have a car or plan for taxi/Uber use since the house is located in Upper Rockridge -- affording lovely views, but a steep walk from the Rockridge retail area. Off-street parking at the house is easy and plentiful.

Wonderful house

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved the cottage in the sky, which is actually much larger than a cottage. We stayed as a family of 4 for nearly 3 weeks, and would happily have lived there! The views of San Francisco and the bay area are spectacular and it is only a 30min journey to the city either by BART or car.
The area is very chic, and it felt a bit like staying in Beverly Hills - lots of good restaurants and shops very close by (walking distance if you enjoy hills) and we felt very safe and peaceful while there.
Steven was very polite and helpful, and even delivered us home grown tomatoes from the garden :)
Lake Temescal which is just a 5 min walk down the other side of the house is great for kids, with 2 playgrounds, and also great for running. We really enjoyed having so much open space around, including our deck!
The interior of the cottage is immaculate, with high end finishings and appliances. Literally everything is provided.

Thank you for our holiday!

Fantastic Little Gem

  • 5 of 5
"Cottage in the Sky" is a fabulous little gem tucked into the hills of upper Oakland. The house itself is very clean and well maintainted. It has a gorgeous kitchen and back deck that I wish we made more use of. I would recommend this house over staying in a hotel 100% - it is much more comfortable and private. The photos in this listing are accurate, but I was very pleasantly surprised by how peaceful it was in person when I got there. The owner Steven was very helpful and friendly in answering our questions. In case it isn't obvious how satisfied I am with renting this property - I am extremely satisfied. I will most definately be coming back to rent "Cottage in the Sky" next year - providing it is available. Best wishes.

Great Weekend Away!

  • 4 of 5
We flew into SFO from Florida and after an easy 20+ minute ride arrived at The Cottage in the Sky. Our daughter who lives in a studio close by greeted us. The house is lovely, well appointed with comfortable beds and quality linens. The kitchen is well equipped and satisfied our foodie instincts. The house is located above the Rockridge / Montclair areas and is surrounded by architecturally interesting homes. The views are breathtaking; San Francisco skyline, Golden Gate Bridge in one direction and Lake Temescal in the other direction. We spent more time on the lake facing patio than in the house because the weather was perfect. We will definitely revisit this lovely place again.

Located in the wonderful upper Rockridge Hills of Oakland. Just minutes away from the popular College Ave in the heart of Rockridge! Enjoy a variety of Shopping and Fine Dinning including the wonderful Market Hall! And on the other side of the hill is The Montclair Village-Another fantastic place to visit! Both places have that great Family local vibe which can be enjoyed by all!
