About Anne & Joyce
A Brit and an American happily married for 25 years, we love the area. Its a good life. Come see for yourself this special place.
Anne & Joyce purchased this House in 2005
Why Anne & Joyce chose El Sobrante
Centrally located for Napa, East Bay and San Francisco close to transportation. All amenities within a 5-10 min drive. Yet the hill exudes the illusion of seclusion and the house is charming beyond belief. Then there are the million dollar views! We've lived on the hill (5mins away) since 1999 and have always loved our special spot. We purchased the cottage in 2006 as an investment rental, with dreams of one day living in it when we downsize, still working on that!! So until that happy day it will be available for travelers from all parts of the globe.Built in 1948 by a poet and an opera singer from Hungary, this artsy cottage is made from recycled wood from the Richmond Shipyards (is this one of the first eco houses???). We love this house, it's natural setting is perfect, we are drawn to the open water view all day and night. We hope you feel the same and enjoy quality time here.
What makes this House unique
Charming, comfy and convenient you have everything you need here and some.. It's quiet and unique, feels like country living yet moments away from the metropolis. Abundant wildlife, all the animals, birds and even reptiles you would expect to see here in Northern California. You will see more deer than people on this special hill!!! We love the fact the cottage is surrounded by heritage oaks and how lovely the views are walking around the hill. The location is perfect for access to all of the east bay, San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley, Walnut Creek, Napa, Marin; all within 30 minutes. After a busy day,we have a great place for you to come back to. Unwind, relax, rest and recharge so that you can go back out and do it again tomorrow!!

Amazing view and location
We found this place a few years ago, and have returned several times. Pro: huge deck with views over San Pablo Bay, small cozy house high up in the hills surrounded by woods and wildlife, large comfortable bed, Wi-Fi and XFinity television, good all-around vibe, owners very pleasant and easy to deal with. Con: must have a car, accessible only by very steep curving road, this is an old house with a definite tilt in one area which makes some people dizzy. Great place for couples exploring the Bay Area but interested in a unique getaway as well.
Most serene & comfy cottage!!
My husband & I had a short vacation planned ~ so we decided to try staying in a home (vs a hotel). This would be our FIRST time for this option. Luckily, we found this adorable, serene, quaint cottage online. And let me say this ~ it absolutely DID NOT disappoint! The view from the deck is AMAZING. The amenities were perfect. Cannot beat the location to Sausalito/San Fran. We will definitely recommend this to any friends that are traveling to the Bay area. During our nightly walks in the neighborhood, we came upon deer and turkeys. Summary: It was a VERY enjoyable stay.
Thank you Anne & Joyce!! You made our vacation even that much more wonderful!!
Serene, great view, everything you need. It was a great refuge for us to come home to.
Would stay there again with no hesitation.
This was a beautiful property. Although dated in decor, it was sparkling clean. We fit four family members comfortably.. And our children are young adults. We did see and hear wildlife... the sunsets were AMAZING!! The only reason we rated it a four is because of the traffic. LOL! Be prepared to drive anywhere you want to go. And it will take you an hour to go 20 miles.
Thank you for your kind review. Glad you enjoyed your stay.

Cute little cottage at the top of the hill with wonderful water views.
So much better than staying at a hotel- this cottage offers privacy, quiet, good WiFi and nice views.
Thank you for your kind words. Anne and Joyce
The most amazing, beautiful, romantic, house you can ever stay at.
This house is simply breath taking!!!! The views from all windows and deck are picture perfect!!! We saw deer from the bathroom window. If you want a romantic get a way this is the perfect place to rent. Once you are here you will throw all your plans out the door and just want to stay and relax on the deck. Anne and Joyce are the best. They let us have a late check out and were available for any questions or recommendations on local places to go. Me and my wife have rented many houses and cottages all over the United States and this is by far the nicest place we have stayed at !!!!! Thanks again Anne and Joyce. Hopefully we can come back and stay here longer in the future. I really can’t say enough about this gem in the woods 🤗�🤗�🤗�👍�👍�
Thanks so much for staying with us and your wonderful review! Hope to see you again.
