A private retreat in a lovely setting with a helpful, friendly host.

The space
Set amid majestic redwood trees with views of the East Bay Hills, our charming, private cottage is the perfect place for your extended stay in the Bay Area. Enjoy the best of both worlds here: a tranquil and attractive home away from home, yet close to the excitement of San Francisco, Berkeley and other northern California locales.
The cottage has been recently renovated. Living area has vaulted ceiling with two skylights and large windows that look out on nature. Kitchen is equipped with full sized refrigerator and gas oven/stove, as well as a microwave, coffeemaker, dishes, etc. Bathroom features upscale tile and cabinetry.
Easy access to San Francisco via Orinda Bart, or 25 minute drive at non peak times. Berkeley is just west of Orinda.
Napa and Sonoma Valley wine country are nearby, and we can give you insider tips on visiting many wonderful places, including Sausalito, Pt Reyes National Seashore, Half Moon Bay, Carmel, Monterey, Lake Tahoe, etc.
Orinda has mild, sunny weather year round and and a friendly, upscale vibe. There are many lovely hiking and biking trails and parks in the area.
We enjoy meeting new people and sharing info on all the great things to do and see around the Bay.

Guest access
The cottage is self contained with its own private entrance and parking spot.

Other things to note
Our guests love the cottage and the beauty and convenience of Orinda.
