Quaint cottage in a inspiring and private setting
This beloved and cherished property is situated next to a small creek that flows year round. A recognized garden designer and builder has embellished this oasis with a multitude of stone paths and benches throughout the property that give each space a different feeling and use. An organic vegetable garden right outside the front door and deck and with fruit trees sprinkled throughout the property is a haven for the gourmet cook.
Nature and bird lovers will also very much enjoy the peace and tranquility the place holds.

I am a garden designer since childhood and now continue my passions professionally. I little eccentric and off the beaten path, I get along with most people and belief we are all here to help each other and along the way be having a great time.

Why Keith A. Stover chose Dimond
This was a unique and speacial peice of property before I purchased it. But since then a lot of love and care has gone into this property and most people would agree. From the cozy little cottage with lots of unique little features to the huge garden. There are dozens of little places to hang out in and just enjoy the surrounding. I think the property which has been well cared for radiates a lot of healing energy.

A Wonderful Oasis in the Bay Area
This was our family's second stay here. This time, it was just my wife and daughter, as I had to stay home for work, and as with our first visit a year ago, they had a wonderful experience. Keith is a great host, attentive to the needs of his guests, with excellent and timely communications and upkeep of the property. Its a truly beautiful, comfortable, well-appointed and well-maintained place. There are good supermarkets and restaurants close by, and its easy to get to UC Berkeley and San Francisco from here. We plan to stay there on all future family visits to the Bay Area. We highly recommend this as a great place to stay.
Thanks so much for taking the time this second time around to post yet another generous review. Having Cindi and your daughter here was my pleasure and I hope if Cindi books a third time you'll be able to come as well.
beutiful property. small but very well designed and furnished cottage. owner very responsive to any needs. well equipped
Beautiful outdoor space, lovely little house
Absolutely loved staying here! The owner was super nice and the house itself was perfect for our group of 4 adults....plenty of room, super clean, beautiful deck and grounds to enjoy. Would stay here again...absolutely!
Terrific two-bedroom in the Oakland Hills
What a nice place! Keith's cozy cottage is hidden away in lovely little canyon of the Oakland Hills. It's quiet, convenient, clean and charming, with all the amenities to make it a comfortable refuge from the Bay Area sprawl. The exterior dates back many years, but it's completely updated inside. Overall the cottage perfectly suited our needs. We hope to come back!
Delightful cottage by a creek in a park-like setting
We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Oakland. The cottage is very well furnished and Keith provided lots of helpful information and notes about how things work.
We did a lot of walking in the neighborhood, it felt very safe. If you meander east uphill, you eventually will catch some great views of the Bay, downtown Oakland and even San Francisco in the distance.
We would definitely stay there again! I'd love to see the gardens at other times during the year.
Wonderful oasis convenient to Oakland and San Francsico
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this delightful cottage! We also liked meeting Keith, who was friendly and helpful! The cottage is well supplied and nicely decorated. The grounds make this place a real treat! There is a lovely deck and a little area with table and chairs higher in the garden. There are trees, plants, edible goodies and a creek! The birds are plentiful. The sun shines beautifully on the deck and cottage. There is good access to highways, 13 and 580. We look forward to staying here again!
Rates & Availability
Additional information about rental rates
This is a small cottage and a relatively quite residential neighborhood. I expect all my guest to be respectful of my neighbors and myself by keeping noise levels to a minimum. That means no loud talking while outside on the deck, absolutely no music outside or loud music with the cottage windows and doors open. Basically enjoy yourself but not at the expense of me or my neighbors. This is not a party house. Any guests that do not abide by this rules will be asked to leave. Please remove shoes upon entering the cottage. Thank you
