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.

Chris and Barbara's place was quiet, private, clean and comfy. Chris provided everything we needed for our short stay. Train station was 10min walk and it was easy to drive to his place and find parking in front of the house. Thanks Chris! All the best

We had a awesome 5 day stay with Chris and Barbara in Oakland. This was our first aid BnB experience and the cottage was exactly what we were looking for. Easy to get in to the city and located in a nice neighbourhood. Would recommend
