The space

This East Bay cottage in Point Richmond is rented only by the month or longer. It is fully furnished and outfitted. It's perfect for people coming to the area for a month or longer to work, travel, visit grandchildren, and it's perfect for boaters. King size bed with comfy Tempur-pedic mattress. Double size sofa bed in living area. Full size appliances including washer and dryer in unit. Computer alcove with high speed internet. Patio and porch with seating. California native plant garden with large live oak tree separating the cottage from the sidewalk. Enjoy lemons from the lemon tree by the porch. Flat screen TV. Off-street parking.

We have traveled extensively and, therefore, know what travelers need. We've provided everything. We've even purchased some items abroad that we found useful but not available in the U.S. What we hadn't thought of our first guests have, and now those items are provided, too.

Close to historic downtown Point Richmond--a two minute walk to groceries, shops, bank, pharmacy, cafes, pub, restaurants, live theater, newly restored swimming pool from the 1920's, etc. Walking routes, hiking areas, the Bay Trail, water vistas, boating facilities are all in the vicinity. Close to freeways and bridges taking you to Marin County, the wine country, Sacramento, and of course to San Francisco. Public transportation to everywhere starting with a local bus to BART!
Golden Gate Transit stops here and takes you across the bridge to Marin County.

Point Richmond is a quaint and friendly community. It is surprising how many people in the Bay Area have never heard of it! It is aptly called "the hidden city." Because it's a true community, there are events going on regularly such as a music festival and the Point to Point event in our downtown area.

We, the owners live next door and are happy to make your stay as pleasant as possible without intruding. Maps, menus, and suggestions are available in the cottage. Got questions? We've got answers. For your information, the cancellation policy is "Long Term." Please check with AirBnB for what that means.
