Description

The Space

Comfortable, quiet backyard cottage (converted garage with Simmons BackCare queen mattress and full bath but no kitchen or living room) .

Folding table and chair, wireless internet, cable, DVD player, microwave, mini dorm fridge, coffee maker, electric kettle, iron and ironing board provided in room. Outdoor seating, deck with grill.

Works perfectly for family or guests of nearby residents who do not have room to spread out or those looking for privacy in one of the best neighborhoods in the East Bay.

Guest Access

Separate entrance in the Grand Lake neighborhood of Oakland just a block from two popular commercial corridors on Lakeshore and Grand Avenues. In addition to the cottage, guests are welcome to use the backyard for grilling, entertaining, or relaxing.

Interaction with Guests

We are a busy family of four who live in the main house and are available to address any issues or answer any questions but can also provide privacy if desired. We've shared a bottle of wine with some guests and never met others.

The Neighborhood

Walking distance to the many shops and restaurants on Lakeshore and Grand Avenues (including two recently profiled in the NY Times: Camino and Boot & Shoe Service) as well as the year round Saturday Farmer's Market (9a-2p), Lake Merritt (a popular 5K jog/walk around), the art deco Grand Lake movie theater and the Rose Garden.

Getting Around

No car needed as there is easy access to all services and amenities within walking distance (our location has a walk score of 98) and you can easily get to San Francisco on the Transbay bus or casual carpool. There are two BART stations each about a mile away. Of course if you do have a car there is street parking and, with the exception of popular movie openings at the theatre down the street or the Saturday morning farmer's market, you can always park within a block of the cottage.

Other Things to Note

No living room or kitchen but does include a folding table and chair, wireless internet, Comcast cable, microwave, mini dorm fridge, coffee maker, electric kettle, iron and ironing board provided in room. Outdoor seating, deck with grill. Street parking.

House Rules

Cottage is separate from the main house and accessible by its own entrance. Come and go on your own schedule, go to sleep early, stay up late, it's your own private hotel room in the neighborhood and at less cost. Backyard is shared with family but feel free to eat outside, use the grill, or enjoy the deck. Our only ask is that you respect our kids' bedtimes around 8:00 as their bedroom is just off the deck.
