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.

It is as described. You are only a 10-15 minute walk to 2 BART stations which opens up all of SF and surrounds. Bus route at the top of the street. Hosts are great. There if you need them. Really enjoyed the stay.

Very hospitable and gracious hosts. I messed up my dates of stay and they allowed me to pay cash for an extra day without any problem at all. Their home is very inviting and cozy. Would definitely recommend looking into staying with them on a trip to Oakland!
