About this listing
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.
We do offer instant booking, but please contact us prior to arriving.

Interaction with guests
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.
We are working most days, very easy to get along with, enjoy meeting new people, but also happy to respect our guest's privacy.
Outdoor smoking is fine - please not in the cottage, kitchen or private bathroom.
Please be sure to lock the cottage every time you leave the premises and to activate the alarm system.
If you use the kitchen (it is shared) please clean up after yourself ( we promise to do the same!).
Please leave the cottage and private bathroom as you found them.
Cancel up to 5 days before your trip and get a full refund, including service fees.
Chris and Barbara Vernon, we've lived in North Oakland for 20+ years and love meeting new people.
