My parents were visiting from Europe and stayed in Cathy's wonderful little cottage for a whole month. The place is simply beautiful! Super clean, nicely decorated, very well equipped, perfect location and nice people! The beds are comfortable, but the bedding was a bit thin for the unusually low temperatures this spring. I was able to provide additonal bedding and everything was peachy. The only problem my parents had - and that has nothing to do with Cathy or the cottage itself - was the noise level from the nearby park and tennis court, that lies right behind the house. So, if you are super noise sensitive, this might not be the best place for you. I wouldn't mind, but my folks are close to their 80s and a bit thin-skinned when it comes to noise. In any case, I will recommend Cathy's cottage to all our friends who are visiting from out of town. It's just adorable!

Terrific little cottage in a wonderful location. Quiet, residential street, yet just a brisk walk from central Alameda and with easy access (3 minutes) to I-880. I stayed 2 months and wish I could have stayed longer. It was perfect.

I was very happy with my stay and Cathy's. The space was beautiful and so well cared for. It's quiet and comfortable, surrounded by a lovely patio and garden space. The weather was rainy and cold when I was there, but there two heaters that warmed the place up nicely and quickly. It has a comfortable bed. Full kitchen. Laundry! And Cathy is terrific. Easy going, very helpful, and kind. She made me feel very welcome. I' d stay there again with no reservations.

Cathy provides a Keurig but you'll need to bring your own pods as well as food for all meals. You'll need to bring sweats and layers of clothing if you stay during cold weather (50-60 degrees). Brrrrr. Heat is not sufficient for space. It was difficult to relax between the cold or the trade off noisy heat sources. I've stayed here several times but this time was not a good experience. I've stayed in a mountain cabin in Austria during the winter; this experience was colder than that.

I reserved this place for my father to go out and visit my sister. He was excited about the location of the property and the privacy this property provided. He stated that Cathy was an amazing host and looks forward to staying there again in the near future.

Cathy's cottage is adorable! Such a unique and quaint place to stay in the heart of Alameda. She is a wonderful host and we had everything we needed for our stay. We thoroughly enjoyed and we will be back to stay again!

This is the second time I have stayed at Cathy's in the last six months. Cathy's place is clean and lovely, in a delightful neighborhood, with easy access to activities in Oakland, Berkeley, and San Francisco.

I own a bridal alterations business, working out of my home. In my spare time, I love to tend to the garden or cook. My sweetheart lives with me, Michael.
