Nestled in the Oakland Hills, a first floor, one bedroom in-law unit of a 2-story cabin with acreage. Note: My family and I live upstairs, we shut down at about 10pm every night, a little later on the weekends but during the day we are in and out. If you are a super light sleeper or expect deafening silence this is not the best place to stay. Features a comfy pillow-top California King size bed, toilet and shower, kitchen with oven, microwave, coffee maker and full-size refrigerator. There is no stove top but there are 2 electric burners to boil water, fry eggs, etc. The unit is very kid friendly and even has toys neatly tucked away in the living room. The bed can sleep 2 adults and a small child. Note about the pillow top mattress: if you have a bad back and require an extra firm mattress this is not it. There is a couch in the living room that is made up of real mattresses and it sleeps 2 very comfortably. We have also added a flat screen tv with roku, dvd player and about 100 dvds to choose from. Plenty of parking next to my husband's collection of beloved cars,
wi-fi, huge deck for private use. Use of bbq and picnic tables. 5 minute drive to freeway, 20 minutes to san francisco, 10 minutes to downtown oakland, 15 minute drive to oakland airport. 10 minute drive to the lovely Montclair village for sunday farmer's market or delicious bagels at "House of Bagels"... you definitely need a car to stay here as public transportation is not that convenient to the house. Multiple locations to drive to BART (train) into san francisco are available within driving distance. Best part of this house...the surrounding trees and nature, very tranquil setting with trails to walk through on the property. The cottage is pet friendly for well-behaved pets, no-smoking please. Extra amenities available upon request (i.e., iron, blow dryer, etc.) The house is on a steep and rough road. drive up slowly to avoid too many bumps. if your car has a really low underbelly and you're concerned,this might not be the best place for you.
This house is in the woods....a nature lover's paradise! We are a super laid-back, flexible family with a love for animals and nature and seek the same in guests we welcome into our home. We will go out of our way to accommodate our guests. :)
Note: our minimum is 3 nights unless there are only 2 consecutive days available on my calendar. Feel free to message me and I can offer a special offer on a case by case basis.

Hands down the best Airbnb experience I've had thus far. Great value for the price paid. The listing and the reviews provide all expectations and the bed was very comfortable.
My husband and I and our 2 dogs enjoyed staying with Sophia. She was there to greet us when we came in so we felt welcome. She had some nice refreshments for us. We stayed 6 nights and slept like babies every night. Loved the soft bed. Everything was clean and tidy. We really appreciated the extra land for our dogs. Our dogs got along well with Sophia's dogs. I have to say this is such a better option than a Hotel. My husband is a chef and he had no trouble cooking up some nice meals. We will be booking Sophia again !
We had a wonderful experience at the cozy and rustic cabin in the woods! Sophia and her husband were very helpful and accommodating. We stayed there with our six month old daughter, and they let us use their pack and play, and even left some books and toys for her to play with! It was a very comfortable spot. The only downside to the location is that it is a bit out of the way, but it is very secluded, and only 10-15 minutes from all of Oakland. A great place at a great price.
Clean, quiet, comfortable and convenient! I was hosting my parents for a grandparents weekend and didn't want to overpay for a hotel that they wouldn't be in for more than 8 hours a day or have to drive 20 minutes to get to. This was perfect! As a couple of country bumpkins a little concerned about visiting the 'big city' they were very happy with the accommodations.
Sophia's place is a great space to settle in and enjoy nature -- while still being close to the urban life. Quiet and cozy, the flat feels like home. There are paths up into the hills through the woods that are good exercise and give you some nice views of the Bay Area. Sophia and her family are welcoming and warm -- and their sweet dogs and kitty make instant friends!
Very nice and helpful family. The little apartment is cute and the property is beautiful. Really good value!
Sophia was very friendly and communicative. The place was perfect on the inside but certainly rough on the outside.
Sophia's place is a good place to explore the Bay area or even vine country. It is a cosy place with a nice little kitchen. Our little son did love it, since Sophia provided a lot of toys for him. Going to SF by car can take a while, since the baybridge traffic tends to be dense.
What a beautiful place, fantastic people cant say enough.. a must go see.

Lovely place! Indeed quiet, clean, very cozy, and private. Going into Francisco is easy and very doable. Sophia was a great host: she washed and dryed our laundry within a couple of hours and gave us advice for shopping and sightseeing. The one downside of this airbnb is the bad driveway to the house which has a lot of bumps and potholes.
