About Kirsten McKay

I'm an interior designer with a passion for creating beautiful living spaces and gardens. I purchased my 1920's home because of its beautiful architecture and its location in a safe, serene, tree-filled neighborhood where neighbors actually know each other.

I designed and built the cottage because I wanted to create a space like the kind I like to find when traveling for business/pleasure in a different city/country. Something unique and stylish, that provides all the luxury and comforts, that's located in a lovely neighborhood that lets you feel like you're living here versus just visiting.

Kirsten McKay purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Kirsten McKay chose Oak Knoll - Redwood Park

The cottage is located in the original historic home section of Redwood City, with wide well maintained sidewalks and streets, where you see people out walking, jogging, enjoying the neighborhood or strolling downtown for coffee, dinner or a movie.

I'm 15 minutes walking distance from the charming downtown with nice pubs, restaurants and a convenient bullet train station to SF, and only a 5 minute drive from either 101 or 280 (connecting highways to San Francisco and San Jose and all points north and south). It's also an easy 7 miles -15 minute drive to Stanford University/Palo Alto.

What makes this cottage unique

Beautiful interior and exterior space. Private and peaceful. An oasis in Silicon Valley. Within walking distance of the Caltrain bullet station and a cool, interesting downtown.

Great Quit and comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

Amazing place. This was my third time renting. Quiet neighborhood, close to everything. Fully stocked kitchen as I stayed in and cooked most nights. Very clean and comfortable. Heated bathroom floor is nice, washer and dryer is convenient.Bed is comfortable. Kirsten is very nice. She even upgraded the kitchen chairs when I mentioned they were not comfortable (the new ones were much better). I would highly recommend this place.

Kristen's little cottage is a jewel!

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of spending 9 nights at Kristen's Cottage In Redwood Park. The attention to detail is superb. Everything about the cottage is pleasant. Kristen has provided just about every cooking utensil one could desire, pots and pan, glasses and dishes for all occasions, washer and dryer and the list goes on and on, even a working fireplace, also a gas grill ready to use. Through the magic of good design, the cottage feels much bigger than it is. Taking the path to the cottage is akin to going to a secret oasis. I look forward to stay again on another trip to the area.

clean, quiet, comfortable place

  • 5 of 5

The place was very clean,comfortable, and quiet. It had all the comforts of home. It is in a great neighborhood. Easy to get to. Plenty of shopping and food places nearby. All question I had were answered in the provided binder. The owner was also very nice to interact with. The only complaint would be the plastic chairs in the kitchen are not comfortable. I would definitely recommend staying here and plan to come back.

Absolutely stunning

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this cottage was great, from the setting (private, practical and beautiful) to the quiet neighborhood, to the in-cottage washer and dryer, to its being well-stocked (coffee, laundry detergent, toiletries, dish soap, bags, BBQ, private patio ... everything you'd need) upon arrival. The decorating is so calm and peaceful. Everything is new. It's beyond compare to anything I've stayed in to date!
