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.

During your stay
Whatever seems natural. Sometimes quite a lot, other times not nearly as much. This is often dictated by how much our guests are even here at the house. They generally spend a great deal of time enjoying the Bay Area.
