Works perfectly for family or guests of nearby residents who do not have room to spread out or those looking for privacy in one of the best neighborhoods in the East Bay.
Separate entrance in the Grand Lake neighborhood of Oakland just a block from two popular commercial corridors on Lakeshore and Grand Avenues. In addition to the cottage, guests are welcome to use the backyard for grilling, entertaining, or relaxing.
We are a busy family of four who live in the main house and are available to address any issues or answer any questions but can also provide privacy if desired. We've shared a bottle of wine with some guests and never met others.
Walking distance to the many shops and restaurants on Lakeshore and Grand Avenues (including two recently profiled in the NY Times: Camino and Boot & Shoe Service) as well as the year round Saturday Farmer's Market (9a-2p), Lake Merritt (a popular 5K jog/walk around), the art deco Grand Lake movie theater and the Rose Garden.
No car needed as there is easy access to all services and amenities within walking distance (our location has a walk score of 98) and you can easily get to San Francisco on the Transbay bus or casual carpool. There are two BART stations each about a mile away. Of course if you do have a car there is street parking and, with the exception of popular movie openings at the theatre down the street or the Saturday morning farmer's market, you can always park within a block of the cottage.

Wonderful, quite cottage in a great location. Adam took care of all the details and provided me with everything I needed during the stay. Thanks!
My wife and I stayed in the cozy backyard cottage for one month while visiting my son in San Francisco. Adam and his family helped to make our stay enjoyable. He was very accommodating to all our requests. The cottage was clean, private and quiet. My wife enjoyed not having to share the bath with anyone. Great location, walking distance to town and restaurants. Would definitely stay again.
Adam and his family were very nice, I met them briefly. The space is very clean and quiet, I got great sleep, the water pressure is excellent! ..the location is wonderful, immediately behind Grand avenue, so lots of walking is possible. The parking is abundant during the day, but you have to drive around a bit to find a space in the evening, so I just left my car if I could when I found a good space.The cottage itself does not have a lot of natural light, which was fine for me cuz I was out and about during the day, so this is a good spot to stay if u want to b located right on lake Merritt and are busy during the day.
All in all very pleasant:)
We enjoyed our stay at Adam and Amanda's cottage. They're very accommodating and great hosts. The cottage is very clean and well kept. The neighborhood is really nice too! It's convenient to everything. The commute to San Francisco doesn't take longer than 25 minutes. Parking was never and issue during our stay, it was really easy to find all day parking. I would definitely recommend this airbnb to people.
Great location! Walk to shops and restaurants. Cozy and comfortable. Space heater keeps cottage very warm in winter. Convenient check-in and check-out. Really enjoyed my stay!
The cottage was AWESOME! I stayed there for 5 weeks while on a med school rotation at Kaiser Hospital down the street. It was perfect for me. It was quiet and secluded so I was able to study and sleep without any issues. The bed was extremely comfortable and the inside of the cottage was clean and modern. In fact, they just painted the outside so it looks brand new. The location could not be better. I ran around Lake Merritt a few times each week and caught a few movies at the Grand Lake Theater down the street. I would get Pho from a little Vietnamese restaurant right across the street a few times per week as well. Adam was a great host and was very helpful when a lightbulb would burn out or anything like that. I would definitely stay there again
I booked Adam's room for my dad when he was in town and we couldn't find a reasonably priced hotel room in Oakland. My dad had nothing but nice things to say about the place and its host!
This is a great space, my spouse and I stayed Sept 2nd & 3rd. Adam responded quickly and was very flexible with check in time when we were delayed on our arrival day. The space itself was comfortable and clean. the private entrance was great because we came in late and left early so we did not have to bother the family at all, as a matter of fact, we never even met in person...maybe next time. This is a great neighborhood, we went to a movie in the great old theatre around the corner and had some great Thai food & delicious gourmet chocolate too! We would happily stay here again!
The cottage was a wonderful place for an extended stay, which is what we needed while relocating to the area. The backyard is safe and private and the cottage has plenty of storage for clothing/luggage. The bathroom was spacious and clean, and the bed was large and comfortable - overall a very comfortable stay! Although the walk to the BART was a little long, it was doable as long as you plan ahead. Also, the area around the cottage has tons of fun restaurants, theaters, and parks to explore. The Saturday farmers market is right around the corner, and Lake Merritt is a short walk away. Adam was always easy to contact if we needed help with anything, and when they were on vacation, his neighbor was extremely helpful as well.
