Rent your own 1 bedroom cottage in back of a cute house in Albany. The cottage has just been completely renovated with new kitchen cabinets, granite, completely new faux finish walls with vaulted ceilings. A new hickory hand scraped wood floor with a an old time cottage feeling. COMES WITH IT'S OWN PRIVATE BATHROOM, a smallish bedroom that contains a captains bed with four drawers. The bedroom and the bathroom are tiled. Comes with well equipped Kitchen, 49 inch 4K TV with many streaming services and Netflix free. Captains bed has four drawers and there is also a small five drawer chest of drawers in the bedroom. Completely private and separate from the mail house where I live. Comfortable bed in the bedroom but its a very small room so there is no room to get out of the bed except crawling over your bed partner and also the bed is higher than a normal bed so I have been advised that older guests might not take to this so well. and very comfortable sofa bed in the living room. There is also a loft with a full size bed. Safe neighborhood, lots of on street parking, very near Solano ave which has tons of businesses and restaurants. Bart station about ten to fifteen minutes walk.

Comfortable and affordable Albany Hideaway
Plenty of room to spread out in this private, quiet cottage. Older visitors might have some trouble accessing the unit, which is behind he main house, down a narrow driveway and through a gate. Seniors should know also that using the comfortable bed, which is in a tight space, requires one of you to climb over the other to get up at night. Similarly, the shower access is a bit hazardous in our view. The separate loft bed would only work for agile older kids, and so in our view isn't really usable. That's OK -- if more than two people stay here, the couches adapt nicely for sleeping. Everything worked fine and Robin was an attentive host. The TV is set up to stream a large variety of programming including Netflix. Good heater. Nice skylights. We easily found close street parking. Safe neighborhood for strolling over to Solano Avenue dining, grocery shopping. Once again, VRBO proves it beats hotels for over-all comfort and options for those who like having more room, staying in non-commercial locations, making your own breakfast and having homey features, despite some quirks.
Charming, convenient, quiet and comfortable!
I thought this little cottage worked really well for me, my husband and our grown daughter and her partner. The back bedroom is actually bigger than it appears in the photos. I was pleasantly surprised. I’m a small woman, so it was a very comfortable space, but even my husband who is over 6 feet found it big enough for his purposes.
The living dining area is light, open and very livable. There is plenty of off street parking and it’s so convenient to Berkeley and a great street in Albany, Solano. It feels quiet and safe here, however.
Robin was very considerate of our needs and check in was easy. Thanks for the great hospitality.
This a great place in a great neighborhood. The host is very attentive and does a wonderful job.
Great Location close to Berkeley, Oakland and the East Bay Area. Easy commute into San Francisco on BART. This cottage is roomy and clean, very comfortable. The host is very responsive and checks in to make sure things are alright. It’s in a nice neiborhood and easy walk to one of Albany’s main streets with shops and restaurants. I would highly recommend it and hope to stay there again on my next visit.
Nice little place
Nice cottage in a very nice neighborhood. Lots of restaurants and shops close by. Short walk to El Cerito plaza where there is a Lucky's and Whole Foods. Parking was not an issue. One side of the bed is against the wall which is a little funky but because of the room configuration, there's no other place to put it. The cottage overall was comfortable, spacious enough, and met our needs. Made us feel like we lived there as opposed to staying in a hotel/motel. I would stay there again.
Great place to stay for visiting entire SF Bay area!
Robin's cottage was perfect for a mix of college campus visits to Berkeley and Stanford and sightseeing the SF Bay area. Finding on street parking wasn't an issue and at a mile from El Cerrito BART it was possible to get around without a vehicle for sightseeing.
Robin was a great host and stopped in a couple times to make sure everything was working properly (WiFi etc.)
Three separate sleeping areas made traveling with 2 teenagers trouble free.
Comfortable guest cottage with well-stocked kitchen in a sweet, safe neighborhood.
Comfortable guest cottage. Congenial host. Convenient to restaurants, BART, ... WiFi ..
