Located in the beautiful Oakland hills is our private, modern studio cottage with a spectacular 180 degree bay view including the South Bay, Lake Merritt, downtown Oakland, San Francisco, the Bay Bridge, Golden Gate Bridge, Oakland hills and Mount Tamalpais. If you're looking for a relaxing and peaceful retreat, this is the place for you. NOW OFFERING STATE OF THE ART A/C WALL UNIT!

The space
The cottage is located near the bottom of the property. Guests must be comfortable walking down numerous stairs (approximately 60) from street level to the cottage. There is pathway lighting and handrails. Inside the cottage is a queen size bed, modern bathroom, kitchenette, heated floors and an air conditioning/hot air wall unit. The cottage is completely private and separate from the main house where the owners live. There is a canopy that provides shade for the (guest use only) attached deck, where there is an outdoor dining table and chairs.

For outdoor enthusiasts, there are plentiful hiking, walking and biking opportunities within .25 to 2.5 miles of the cottage at Oakland's amazing selection of regional parks.

Bayview Cottage is located approximately 30 miles from San Francisco International Airport and 13 miles from Oakland International Airport. In good traffic conditions, SFO is about a one hour drive. From OAK, it is a 30 minute drive. The nearest major public transportation is the Rockridge BART(Bay Area Rapid Transit) train station, which is a 15 minute drive from the cottage. From the closest highways (Hwy 13 and Hwy 24), the drive to the cottage goes up winding roads that are narrow at times. Although ride share services do come to the property, this can be a time-consuming process, especially later into the evening. It is recommended that guests rent or drive their own vehicles while visiting.

I have lived in the Oakland hills with my partner, Doug, for 20 years. It's a great pleasure to provide a relaxing getaway for our guests. In my free time I'm an avid hiker and scuba diver.
