Newly renovated garden cottage, great Bay Area location near everything but quiet and peaceful.
We have a fridge, microwave, toaster/convection oven, electric skillet, hot plate and french press for coffee. There is a private bathroom in the cottage with a shower. The backyard is shared space and our pup, Muddy, will greet you friendly when you enter and exit. (no animals go in the cottage; only the backyard) You are welcome to our organic garden with swiss chard and kale (in season) and herbs (year-round). There is also a private outdoor eating area (seats 4) for dining al fresco!
Interaction with guests
We are usually around, as the cottage is in our backyard. We will absolutely respect our guest's privacy, but we will be available should anything come up. Chris works from home, and is often working on a project in the garage.
Other things to note
We are happy to waive the $30 additional person charge for a child 12 or younger. Simply let us know when you inquire if you are traveling with a child and we will waive the fee. We also have a pack-n-play and toys/books for families with a child.
We have a three year old who goes to bed around 8pm. We would just ask our guests to take that into consideration, and not throw any parties or be excessively loud. No smoking inside the cottage or on the property. Please be considerate, notify us if you break something and pick up after yourself before you depart.
Your hosts are actually, Chris, Lara, James (toddler), Lacey (cat) and Muddy (puppy). We are a fun and close-knit family living in the Bay Area. Chris and Lara work from home (most days) and spend their free time as avid DIYers, beer enthusiasts, rock climbers and gourmet cooks. You will smell anything from garlic to fresh muffins coming from the main houses' kitchen. We have a genuine love of hosting and are excited to welcome you to our backyard cottage. Gardening is not our strong suit, but we continue to try...
