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, internet and cable (December 2013 - installed a new router in the cottage, guests report the wireless connectivity is more than adequate), 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.

Guest Access

Guests have access to their cottage, their own private full bathroom in the main house, a shared kitchen and laundry room.

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.

The Neighborhood

Easy access to everything in the Bay Area, great neighbors, excellent restaurants, coffee houses nearby. Easy to walk, bicycle and enjoy our usually great weather.

Getting Around

Parking is easy on our tree-lined residential street, and we're within walking distance of 3 BART stations (MacArthur, Ashby, and Rockridge), multiple bus lines (18, 12, 1R, and 1) into Berkeley, downtown Oakland, San Francisco, etc. The transbay bus line (F) takes 20 minutes to arrive in San Francisco from the stop 3 blocks from our house. This line runs every 30 minutes from about 5 am to 12 pm. It's easy to get anywhere, whether you have a car or not.
