The space

Cozy 8 X 15 North Oakland cottage. Just several steps away in the main house are your private full bathroom with sink, toilet, shower, fresh towels, and a lovely, large shared eat-in kitchen. There is complimentary tea and coffee for you in the kitchen. The cottage has a mounted flat screen tv, a very comfortable queen sized bed, wireless internet and cable, plenty of books and New Yorker magazines if you feel like reading, a comfy leather chair, and a full sized dresser for your clothes. Enjoy the sunny, plant filled backyard deck just outside your front door. There is a private entrance alongside the main house that leads back to the cottage.

If you like community gardens, the lovely one acre Dover Street Park is just around the corner. You can also walk the few blocks to Temescal shopping, excellent restaurants and cafes, art spaces, public library, post office, etc.

Adorable little cottage in a great location. As far as Oakland goes, it’s in a good part of the city walkable to cute shops and restaurants on Telegraph street. Additionally, stopping into San Fran is very convenient. You can walk or take an Uber to the BART station, and an Uber…

We had a great time at Chris and Barbara’s! The cottage was super cozy and the bed was very comfy. We never had to drive very far to get where we were going either so that was definitely a plus :-)

Chris and Barbara's place is nice and they are excellent hosts. Using the kitchen and bathroom inside while our bedroom was in the bungalow wasn't problematic for us at all. Use of the full kitchen was very nice and Chris and Barbara were very accommodating and friendly.

I was in town for a visit to family, and Chris and Barbara’s place was a great refuge. Quiet, clean, private, and very accessible to transit as well as the great food and attractions of the bay.
