Blissful Cottage Close to Downtown and Lakes

Bedrooms 2
Space 640 sq ft
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

This blissful cottage is close to the hills, lakes (Lake Merritt & Lake Chabot), yet is close to restaurants and nightlife (15 mins to downtown Oakland & 25 mins to SF) and airport and Bart stations (10 mins away).

Very safe location but car dependent. You can walk to the hills but you need a car to reach the lakes or restaurants even if they are just few mins away. But Uber/Lyft is ubiquitous and in few minutes, you're in downtown Oakland or SF.

Come, relax and recharge in this private blissful cottage, all your own for the duration of your stay.

A wonderful find!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at your cottage for 4 nights. We found the location SO convenient - close to the highway but without the highway noise. The home was clean and functional, providing everything we needed for a relaxing getaway. Thanks, Jan, for making our stay just what we were looking for!

Nice hideaway

  • 4 of 5

My friends and I were looking for a nice sized home to reside in after long days of site-seeing. We found it in the blissful cottage. The two bedrooms connect to the bathroom (jack and jill style). With the exception of the twin size bedroom, the cottage was spacious enough. Although we did not cook, the kitchen was well equipped. Kitchen table is big enough to seat 2 people. The living room will seat up to 4 people comfortably. Again, we did not spend much time in the home, aside from sleeping, but it was safe and comfortable.
