Designed and built by Sam (product designer/sculptor) for our visiting east coast parents, our backyard cottage is modern, stylish, cozy and private. Our family-friendly neighborhood is right on the border of Berkeley and North Oakland, and very convenient to Rockridge shops(10 minute walk), the Berkeley Bowl (7 minutes), and Ashby Bart (5 minutes, if that!). We think you'll find our sunny cottage a clean, comfy welcoming place to stay when you visit Oakland or Berkeley.
The cottage has a queen bed and bathroom with shower. There is a microwave, small fridge and electric teakettle. My mom liked to have the place at a nice toasty 85 degrees, and it's very well insulated.
Sorry No dogs other than ours!
My neighborhood is very family friendly, and there are several nice cafes within a couple blocks (Nomad Cafe and Sweet Adeline) . The cottage has it's own deck and chairs, if you want to bring your coffee back and have it outside under the giant Japanese Maple.
Sam and Mittie are happy to help with suggestions or ideas if you need us, but also happy to give you privacy.

We had a very comfortable and enjoyable visit with Mittie and the backyard cottage. The location is great--we were able to see the Germany/Brazil game at a local pub, then head down to the Coliseum to see the A's and Giants. Thanks, Mittie and Sam!
Great experience. The host even called me when she saw a car go by, with a confused looking driver. (I had transposed numbers when I entered the information in my calendar.) The house itself was comfortable, larger than anticipated, and filled with nice amenities--cereal, milk, fruit, tea, instant coffee. The bed was comfortable and the small couch perfect for reading in the evening.
Lovely little garden cottage, and Mittie was so nice and welcoming!
Another great stay at Mittie's cozy cottage. Mittie makes the cottage a very friendly and welcoming place to stay. Highly recommended.
It was a lovely little cottage- clean and in a great location. Mittie was responsive and welcoming and had a great attitude. Would definitely recommend this place.
We had great time at Mittie's place. Although we were there primarily for an event at BerkeleyRep, there is so much else nearby. From Telegraph Avenue, College Ave, the Berkeley Flea Market, and being adjacent to a BART station, we're coming back to Mittie's place.
A wonderful place to stay. Clean comfortable and close to transport and shops. Mittie was a friendly and helpful host.
It was quaint and she was a lovely host! We will definitely look at staying here again when back in the area.
Cottage was as listed. Clean, quiet, private access. A wonderful place to stay.
Wonderful little cottage in a lovely backyard! We were super comfortable and cozy, and found Mittie to be a welcoming and warm host.
