Beautiful location and relaxing stay
Beautiful setting and comfortable cottage in a stately neighborhood. Owner and manager were excellent communicators, quick to respond to questions and very accommodating of my request to drop my bags early, which was greatly appreciated. Listing description is spot on accurate - while no cooking amenities, there is a convenient refrigerator and tea kettle, and the nearby market has a nice selection of items for breakfast and lunch, and the local Souvenir coffee shop is quite good. Many great places to dine within walking distance, or bring back takeout and dine in or outdoors on the garden table. Bed was comfortable, and the entire cottage was immaculate. The large desk was great for working. Additional thoughtful touches included fresh flowers and bottle of wine. Highly recommend as a perfect retreat for the end of a busy day.
Very nice place. Well done!
beautiful cottage with a lovely patio and great neighborhood
I had a wonderful and very comfortable stay at this cottage. It's perfect for one or a couple. It's in a lovely residential area but within a short walking distance to college avenue, which has many shops and restaurants, and about 20 min walk from the rockridge bart station. There is also a great coffee shop (souvenir) within about a block.
The cottage itself is very sunny and inviting, and the bed is super comfortable. There is no kitchen, which is the only downside, but since I usually never cook when visiting the bay area, this was not a deal breaker for me. There is a water kettle, a microwave, and a fridge, which is all you need for any leftovers from restaurants. All-in-all, a gem of a place.
Great location and space for 2
Very spacious cottage, nicely furnished, comfortable bed, lovely marble bathroom and nice patio for two. Way better than a hotel. Host added some nice touches (bottle of wine, coffee and fresh flowers on arrival) and communication/check in etc was very easy. Cooking options (microwave, electric kettle, coffee maker, toaster) were fine for breakfast but would not be suitable for someone planning to cook dinner. But with great restaurants nearby that was not a problem.
Clean, well appointed, in quiet upscale neighborhood
This is a mother in law separate small bungalow right aside the main family home. I arrived to a nice bottle of wine, and coffee grounds for the morning. Everything was nice and clean and it’s close to trails in the Oakland hills, and foody places. The family was respectful of my privacy. I did run into them a couple of times on my way out, and I found them to be very ready to respond to any of my questions and were hospitable and good people.
Simply wonderful. Peaceful space. Care, care everywhere. Super lovely owners.
