Sally's cottage is somewhere I would love to stay again. She is a perfect host and the place is comfortable, stocked with everything you'll need, and close to lots of great restaurants and fun Oakland spots. If you're looking for a beautiful place to stay, convenient to Oakland and SF, with a wonderful host, this is it!

Sally was a cool and lovely host that kept sophisticated supplies during our stay. She brought the room a full-length mirror after I inquired her about it, I considered it a very sweet move. She also liked to write us notes to keep us informed for her time being home and time to knock her if need be. Bunches of nice restaurants line up few miles away the place which was very convenient. We highly recommend Sally and her lovey house, you won't be disappointed if you need a private comfy space to accommodate with sufficient supplies.

Sally is a kind, thoughtful and gracious host who is attentive but not intrusive, respectful of privacy but inclusive, an intelligent fountain of information on numerous subjects, a very good cook, and has a very well developed sense of humor. She is an absolute delight and I feel privileged to have been her guest for 15 months.

Sally is warm, kind, thoughtful and gracious, with a great sense of humor. The cottage is adorable, cozy, comfortable during all four seasons and well appointed. The gardens are always colorful and tasty. The neighborhood is friendly and quiet. The location is convenient to personal and grocery shopping. Freeway access is within a half mile. Guests, especially on a long term, would be very lucky to stay in Sally's lovely cottage.

Sally contacted and welcomed me in a very friendly text and follow up phone call prior to arrival. I was greeted with beautiful flowers and a basketful of delicious fruit from her garden, some candy and snacks, and a lovely bottle of wine. Our initial in person meeting was like renewing a friendship. Sally is a very outgoing, friendly, kind, caring and gracious host. She checks on me frequently to be sure I am ok and to see if anything is needed. She makes sure supplies are always on hand. She is s great cook and has generously included me for a meal on a number of occasions. The cottage is absolutely darling; so snug and cozy, comfortable and nicely furnished. It is set in a beautiful garden filled with colorful trees, lush plants, and various fruit and vegetables. The location is excellent, very near freeway access but quiet. The neighborhood is very pretty. Grocery, drug and various other stores, several banks, and numerous restaurants are only a mile away. I am currently in my third three month consecutive stay with Sally, and I cannot imagine a more kind and genial host or a lovelier setting. It is very easy to call the cottage "home". Sally, thank you for the opportunity to abide in your sphere of kindness, generosity and comfort these many months. On a scale of 1 to 10, you are definitely a 12!!

I really enjoyed my extended stay at the cottage. Sally was a very welcoming host throughout my months there, she had lots of information and recommendations about things to do and restaurants in the area. The cottage was very clean, had everything I needed. It is in a quiet and nice neighborhood. I would recommend to all my friends and will definitely stay there again if I get the chance.

I am a recently retired teacher and artist. I am an avid gardener and have created a serene place for guests to enjoy. I've traveled extensively, yet can't stay away from good ol california. The 'Village" of montclair and the surrounding redwoods are an inspiration always.
This is a mellow space and hope guests are also.
