A very, clean, spacious, and quiet space with a lovely garden view. Complete with a full kitchen with appliances, ample silverware and dishware. There's a full bathroom and the bedroom comes with a large dresser, easychair, and a very comfortable bed. I'd highly recommend staying here for as many days as you need.

The most comfortable Airbnb I have stayed in since I began using Airbnb. The place is perfect for a single or couple and really tidy and cute. Nice yard. Private and short walk from amenities. About 30 minute bus ride from SF and the NL bus is only two blocks away. I would definitely recommend this as a place to stay. The internet can be a bit slow at times but I suspect a wireless extender would fix that right up but still good enough to get your remote work on.

Noel was really nice, she was able to accommodate an early check-in. The space was really nice and kept up. The double doors that lead to the back are really cool, I had them open most the time while inside the cottage. I would recommend anyone to stay here.

I was born and raised on this property. My dad built the cottage adjacent to the "big house" in around 1952 for his mom to live in. She had acquired the property with her husband in the 1930s. I have a photo of my dad freshly returned from WWII on the porch I now call my own.

We restored and updated both houses in 1994. It is a labor of love to create a comfortable space for people when they are away from home. Weddings, reunions, new grandchildren, and simply the beauty of the Bay Area have brought visitors to us, and we have enjoyed hosting them all!
