This cozy, light filled white stucco cottage has 3 skylights, 2 windows and consists of a brand new fully renovated bathroom, bedroom and large closet (NOTE: NO KITCHEN) . Detached from the main house, it has its own private entrance. It comes with a desk and outside there is a little patio where you can sip coffee in the tranquil backyard. The queen sized bed is brand new and quite comfortable. The cottage comes with fresh linens and towels and is professionally cleaned. This is suitable for those seeking a quiet place to sleep and enjoy peaceful surroundings. This is not suitable for those interested in loud music and parties.
There is coffee and tea in the cottage and we make available fresh fruit and breakfast breads the first morning. The studio is located close to the village of Montclair which features restaurants of all levels, grocery stores, bike stores, and a weekly farmers market. There is a great shop for cheese and wine lovers. You are also close to public transportation that will take you to the nearby rockridge/temescal or piedmont avenue areas where you can find more fine dining, movies, and shopping.
We are also located near some of the best bike riding in the bay area, right outside our door featuring beautiful vistas, canyon trails with towering redwoods and wonderful wildlife. Hiking in the renowned East Bay Regional Park system is a 5-10 minute car ride away. Also very nearby is the Chabot Space & Science Center which features some of the best stargazing enhanced by the brand new state of the art telescope.

My mom was very cozy in this space. It was clean and well-kept and she enjoyed the library of books!
Nancy and Andrea were amazing and their cottage could not have been any more perfect! It was the perfect little writer's studio for my week-and-a-half long stay in Oakland. Nancy and Andrea were so knowledgeable about the area and willing to share their favorite spots. Little touches like tea bags, a kettle, and a shelf full of books made the whole experience a dream. I would go back in a second!
My hosts were wonderful. They left me to my own devices but were readily available if I needed them.
The room was clean and quiet: just what I wanted. It was perfect for one person. It had nice light and was just as advertised. Beautiful bathroom. All the other glowing reviews are accurate!! I would be happy to return and stay with Nancy and Andrea again.
We had a wonderful stay with Andrea and Nancy. The accommodation was perfect for our use. The room was clean and comfortable and the bathroom was spacious and modern. The local area was quiet and peaceful and provided us with breakfast, lunch and dinner venues all within walking distance. We used the public transport to get to San Fransisco and found it to be reliable.
Great experience! My boyfriend and I spent 2 weeks at this cute little cottage tucked away in the trees of Montclair. Nancy was incredibly helpful when we communicated the weeks before arriving. When we arrived, the room was comfortable and very clean. Andrea was available to answer all of our questions and offer suggestions. The shower was absolutely lovely. Nancy and Andrea even provided delicious fresh berries and muffins our first morning. We also really appreciated that they offered us a great deal of privacy. Great experience and would strongly recommend! Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable!
Nancy and Andrea have a very lovely place and I would definitely recommend a stay here. They are both friendly, hospitable and helpful. It was very easy to communicate with them. Nancy was very accommodating and understanding when I was late for check-in and when I accidentally locked myself out. The studio/cottage is beautiful - clean, neat and very peaceful. The setting is among trees on a hillside which I found very wonderful! A very thoughtful touch were the muffins and organic strawberries and blueberries.
I had a nice weekend retreat here, would stay again. it's a peaceful, private spot and I felt right at home. Nancy responded promptly to my booking request and all my questions. Bed was comfy, lovely shower, view of the sky, and I really appreciated that everything I needed to make coffee was right there in the studio, including real half-and-half.
My husband and I stayed at Nancy and Andrea's lovely cottage for a month while visiting our son and daughter--in-law and new granddaughter in Oakland. The accommodations were perfect for our needs: a comfortable place to sleep (terrific bed!) as well as a haven for relaxation, reading, etc. when we weren't visiting the kids and/or exploring the Bay area. The cottage and the outdoor patio area provide a tranquil, beautiful setting, and Nancy and Andrea were gracious, very friendly hosts. Nearby Montclair Village is a charming and convenient place to visit. Overall, a wonderful experience. We look forward to returning in the future!
I stayed at Nancy and Andrea's studio for a month and had a wonderful experience. The studio is spacious, bright, comfortable, and luxurious for its size. The location is great, with Montclair Village right around the corner, and with just about everything you could need within walking distance of the studio. Nancy and Andrea were extraordinarily kind and hospitable, and they both gave me great advice about things to do, places to eat, nearby parks--everything--both in Oakland and in San Francisco. I would highly recommend this place for anyone, either for a quick weekend or for a longer term stay. Definitely one of the best experiences I've had.
Great spot for one or two nights. Close enough to the City Center that dinner out is not a big deal. Can't wait for the summer so that one can leave the door open to the garden!
