Perfect peaceful oasis in the East Bay
Submitted: January 23, 2013
Stayed: January 2013
With family in the Bay Area, we visit frequently from the East Coast. Wisteria Cottage, and hosts John and Arthur provide a perfect, peaceful retreat. It's unique, yet homey; close to everything, yet quiet as a country cottage. The garden is a labor of love, and it's infused with beauty and tranquility. Koi pond, several sitting areas, and mature plantings make for instant stress relief. You'll find everything you need: full kitchen, awesome bathroom, comfortable bed w/reading lights; bathrobes; wi-fi access; wine, bread and fruit upon arrival; redwood interior walls and many found-object design touches. Perfect place to come home to after a day's worth of family visits, SF excursions, day-tripping etc. 10/10 would definitely stay again. Highest recommendation.
Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. John and Arthur have definitely put a lot of love into every detail. If you ever come back to Alameda, give us a shout....we'd love to have you back!
