About the property

2 BR, 1 BA, boat trailer parking, fenced yard, sleeps up to 6

Newly fully remodeled cottage on 1/4 acre. Fenced in yard. 40" flat screen TV with local channels and large DVD library, pool table, table & yard activities. Family friendly. All new appliances, kitchen, bedding, etc. Family safe for small children without direct water access. Minutes from boat launch, restaurants, bars, grocery store, gas station. 2 new queen beds and queen sleeper sofa with quality mattress. Lots of wildlife in area. Extra folding bed can sleep an extra person in a pinch. Used recently for family reunions, wedding parties and other family oriented gatherings.

Special rates may apply for longer duration stays. We have hosted families that have had family reunions or weddings that have stayed for extended periods of time.

This is also a perfect place to stay if you are relocating to the area but your new place is not ready. No need to unpack part of your belongings or furniture. We are more fully equipped than most timeshares.

We are also developing a new concept for vacationing. We have purchased a new 34' travel trailer with too many features to describe here, located on a quiet private waterfront setting. Can sleep up to 9. If you enjoy a high end camping experience but do not want to take an RV, and like a little more privacy than a conventional RV park offers, this may be perfect for you. Same Delta location, like a private park. More information upcoming.

About Ann Muench

The internet is a great way to find things. However, we are old school and much prefer the personal approach. We would prefer you giving us a call rather than do the online booking. That way we can see that your needs are met if you decide to stay with us.

We moved out to the delta 18 years ago and built our home . We enjoy people and have had many stay with us over the years including caring for our parents. We take great care of our homes and this property Is an extension of our home as it is only a few houses away. As an artist it was a pleasure to decorate this home with a delta theme. It has been a labor of love that we enjoy sharing . It is our hope that no matter what your activities include that you find your experience uplifting and refreshing.

Ann Muench purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Ann Muench chose Oakley

Located in the hub of the California delta with 1,000 miles of waterways that lead up to Sacramento is DELTA ESCAPES. DELTA ESCAPES offers a secure venue to participate in year round world class bass tournaments and other water recreation. With DELTA ESCAPES you are within a quick seven minutes to boat launching. Water craft rentals are also available nearby with which to enjoy the delta .

DELTA ESCAPES is located at 5057 Sandmound Blvd., Oakley, California 94561

This fully remodeled hideaway is like a timeshare without the commitment. Just bring your clothes, toys, and food if you like. There are restaurants nearby if you prefer. This lovely home features 2 queen sized bedrooms, one hide a bed with new mattress, 1 bathroom, fully equipped kitchen, dinette, living room, garden/game room, and guest laundry room. Air conditioning and heating are added for comfort. The home has a private yard with gated surrounding for security of boats and gear.

For convenience hair dryer , iron & ironing board as well as wake up clock alarms for each bedroom have been added.

What makes this cottage unique

Delta Escapes offers a fenced in secure area next to home for fishermen's boat and vehicle which is rare for those who want to take advantage of the bass tournaments. We also have a fully fenced back yard that is safe for children. The property is clean, cheery, and serene. We are centrally located between Sacramento and San Francisco with many featured attractions accessible by Bay Area Rapid Transit (Bart). We are about 90 minutes from Sacramento and 90 minutes from San Francisco (depending on traffic).

While we do not pursue long term rentals, we realize some people may need a temporary home while in transition. This will be handled on a case by case basis.

This cottage (really a 2 bedroom home) offers an ideal getaway from the city or a great retreat for fishermen participating in any of the local tournaments. The lack of decent accommodations in this area make this property an exceptional value. Weddings, graduations, short term out of town jobs and many other reasons have brought visitors to us.

Awesome family get away

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family had a great time staying at Delta Escapes. Ann and Richard arrived at the home few minutes before we did to welcome us in and show us the place around. They had a nice goodie bag for us too! They are a very sweet couple and took a lot of care in making out stay as comfortable as possible. The place itself is very cute. It has a nice game room with a lot of board games, dart board and a pool table. We throughly enjoyed ourselves and felt like at home.

Great Cottage & Warm Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We rented the cottage for the holidays. It was far beyond what we expected and made a great place for our family gathering. The cottage was comfortable, cheery and meticulously clean. The host was gracious and welcoming. We couldn't recommend this rental more highly.

Very cute cabin by the lake!!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the 3 night stay in this very clean cute house that is close to the water. The only issue we had was that the mattresses were a little harder than we were used too. The Owner is very personable and helpful. She had every thing labeled and even had a welcome basket and drinks available. Over all experience was very good!!! We would stay again!!!

Owner's Response: Sorry it was not softer. We've found that most of our travelers prefer a little firmer. We use a Serta Beauty Rest mattress. Will look into a pillow cover should you have an opportunity to revisit us. Thank you for being our guest.

Nice and beautiful house!!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 4 friends visiting San Francisco for the labor day weekend. We reached the house at midnight and Ann and her husband were awake and waiting to welcome us. She even had snacks ready just in case we were hungry. She walked us through the facilities in the house and provided recommendation on places to eat and visit. One of the best places we have stayed so far!! Clean, beautiful and personalized service!

Great time nice location awesome host can't beat it

  • 5 of 5

When we first seen the place online wasn't sure what to expect what was available already there how it was inside and accessibility to what we went for fishing locations the place definitely exceeded our expectations as far as comfort Cleanlyness and accessibility to different locations where we could fish I would definitely recommend this location to my family and friends on those that are listening and reading this review I would definitely go back hopefully I will go back next year and make this an annual outing for my family and my relatives that went with us this last time The hosts live by this location and they were more than generous enough to allow us to use more than just the area that we had rented out by allowing us to go through their house accessing the Delta Bethel Island waterway if you're looking to get away and do a little fishing this would be the perfect place for you
