About the Property

Cozy one-bedroom cottage beautifully equipped with breath-taking bay views

Located between two of California's top tourist locations, San Francisco and the Napa Valley, our wonderful cottage in Crockett offers stunning Bay views from its terrace, and easy accessibility to Berkeley, Oakland, Marin County, and other locations around the Bay. From this Italianate hillside village it's an easy drive to Touro U, CA Maritime, UC Berkeley, and other East Bay universities. A myriad of local parks and golf courses offer a range of recreational activities.

Our two-year old cottage features WiFi, bamboo floors throughout, slate-floored bathroom and shower over bathtub. Casual and serious cooks will appreciate the fully furnished kitchen - gas range, Le Creuset cookware, coffee maker, microwave, and place settings for four. The upstairs bedroom features a queen size bed with pillow top mattress, 600 count cotton sheets, half bath, and access to a generous-sized terrace with Bay view and comfortable furniture. The newly-furnished living room sports a couch that converts to a comfortable queen bed and a smart television with cable service and internet connection.


Friendly neighbors on each side will welcome you to this single-family residential neighborhood. Built on a steep hill, visitors are treated to fabulous views of San Francisco Bay, the Carquinez Straits, the California Maritime Academy, and other Bay-side facilities. Local restaurants provide sea food, pizza, and deli sandwiches. The town offers tennis courts and swimming pool. The Crockett Hills Regional Park - a great place for hiking and mountain bike riding - is nearby.

Our Bay cottage is a 20 minute drive to two different BART stations and only 8 minutes to the Vallejo Ferry which will take guests to San Francisco's Ferry Building, Pier 39, or (seasonally) the Giant's baseball park. The Oakland Airport is a 40 minute drive, and San Francisco Airport about 50 minutes.

We welcome your questions. Do contact us.

Owner info

About the owner: A bay-area resident until retirement, I'm living in a small town in the far north of California.

Why the Owner Chose Crockett, CA, USA:
I'm retired and living in northern California. I acquired the property when my son attended the California Maritime Academy. He moved out of the area, so I'm renting the house that he built.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The house sits on a steep hillside in a single-family neighborhood, allowing stunning vistas from the street and from the upstairs deck. Lovingly built in 2011 with bamboo floors throughout, slate-floored bathroom and shower over bathtub. Casual and serious cooks will appreciate the fully furnished kitchen - gas range, Le Creuset cookware, coffee maker, microwave, and place settings for four. The upstairs bedroom features a queen size bed with pillow top mattress, 600 count cotton sheets, half bath, and access to a generous-sized terrace with Bay view and comfortable furniture. The living room sports a couch that converts to a comfortable queen bed and a 42 inch television with cable service.
