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.

My family and I rented this place for a month as we were in the midst of moving into our own home and we thoroughly loved it. The photos don't really do it justice and this house is simply quite amazing in person. Everything is well-designed and the features that come with it are wonderful, namely the gas fireplace, great kitchen stove & sink and of course, the wonderful views, both front and back! Most of all, the owner, Steven, is really great and easy to communicate with. There was a day the internet was down and he got it sorted in no time!

Sunsets there are incredible, especially on a clear day, you get a great view of the Golden Gate Bridge. It's quite and serene and a great place to kick back, plus, Lake Temescal is a short walk away, right from the backyard! You'll definitely need a car though as it's on a hill and would be a fair walk up! It has it's own driveway and parking space so you don't have to worry about parking on the street.

All in all, I'd say this is great place, especially if you are looking for a place as a getaway! Thanks for everything, Steven!

Spectacular Views

  • 5 of 5
This is a really special property located in the hills of Oakland above the Rockridge / Montclair areas surrounded by million dollar plus homes. The first thing you notice are the killer views of the Golden Gate & Bay Bridges as well as San Francisco skyline in one direction and Lake Temescal in the other direction. A spacious outdoor patio on the bottom floor and a private deck off the master suite. The house has 2 big screen TV's, beautiful gas fireplace that we used everyday. New washer dyer that was super convenient. The entire house was very nicely decorated. The house was surprisingly easy to get to even though it's in the hills. It's also close to grocery stores, coffee shop's, restaurants with good freeway access. The other thing my wife and I both said when we walked in was "This is nicer than the pictures". Depending on your need, this is soooo much better than a hotel room. By the way, I must say that the owner was really nice an accommodating.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a wonderful stay at Cottage in the Sky. Stven was an amazing host, and we loved everything about the property. The view of the Golden Gate was spectacular. The property is a short drive from amazing shopping and restaurants. It is very centrally located; a short trip into the city or an hours drive to Sonoma. Very well equipped kitchen! The linens and beds were top notch. Loved retiring from a long day in the hustle and bustle of Oakland to this serene neighborhood. Would absolutely stay here 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!
