About this listing
Walk Everywhere! Behind the main house, the light and airy Craftsman studio Cottage has high ceilings, skylights and large windows. Enjoy a private deck with view of secluded garden filled with whimsical sculpture and California Native Plants.
Just right for a single or 2 people, the Cottage contains a queen sized bed which sleeps 2. We provide cotton linens & a silk comforter with linen duvet cover. In addition, there is a studio sofa (natural latex filling) which can convert into a small twin sized bed. Full bath has a shower but not a tub. An updated kitchenette has premium 4 burner gas cook-top, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, mini refrigerator, & bar sink. Coffee, teas, all utensils, cookware and dishes are there for your use.
Private entrance from the street through a lush bamboo garden straight to your own private deck: only 2 steps up to the deck and Cottage. Upon booking, you will receive easy instructions for checking in.
Interaction with guests
Everything is in the Cottage for you to be completely private and self-contained, including information on finding local shops, services & cafes. Of course, we will be available if you need anything or have questions. We live in the main house.
Other things to note
There are many micro-climates in the Bay Area. The Rockridge neighborhood is very temperate and afternoons are usually sunny.
The main rule is to enjoy the relaxing surroundings and all the neighborhood has to offer. This location is not, however, suited for loud parties or large gatherings as one of the pluses of our setting is our quiet and considerate neighbors. Also, we live in the main house.
Only guests who have registered beforehand can stay overnight in the Cottage and the rental is for short term stay only.
There can be absolutely no smoking ( even outside the Cottage or on the deck), no pets and no candles. We strive to maintain a clean, fragrance-free space and to use natural and organic products when possible. Your security deposit is at risk if these rules are not followed.
