    We had a fabulous time. Bed was comfortable, linens & towels were serviceable and the size was perfect for a long weekend in the Eastbay. We saw a show at the Greek Theatre, had dinner at OMCA, went shopping in the Haight, and visited three Botanical Gardens in 2 days. Quiet, secluded and not really that far from everywhere we wanted to go. Bonus was a sighting of a doe with two fawns early one morning. Weather was perfect and the view was outstanding! 17 June 2016 - 04:46:00

    This place felt like a wonderful secret. We had no idea such an intriguing, rustic spot existed in the Bay Area. The view was extraordinary, and we loved sitting out on the big deck enjoying the wildlife that surrounded us. The cottage was charming, with a very comfortable bed, and a great kitchen. Our hosts were warm and welcoming. We couldn't have been happier. We will definitely be back! 19 October 2016 - 16:05:00
  4. My husband, 19 mos daughter and myself had the pleasure of staying 2 nights in Anneand Joyce's cottage. I thought the cottage was cute and quaint and was supplied with things that one could forget while packing for vacation, my favorite thing about the cottage had to be the views, they were absolute spectacular!!! It was nice to sit out on the deck with a glass of wine taking the view in. We did not get a lot of downtime at the cottage since we spent the time exploring San Francisco. The location to SF was perfect a quick 25 min and then your looking at the beautiful Golden Gate Bridge. My family and I loved SF and went to see the Painted Ladies and the actual Tanner house (loved the show Full House) and we explored Pier 39 which was awesome. To those who read reviews I highly recommend Anne and Joyce's cottage!! Thanks again Anne and Joyce you made our trip! 11 September 2016 - 14:41:00

    The cottage is a sweet spot with a lovely view. It was well stocked with the essentials and very comfortable for our time away. Thank you! 13 November 2016 - 22:34:00

    Had the opportunity to stay in this little gem of a property up in the hills of El Sobrante recently. I would definitely consider booking here again! The hosts were accommodating and even provided an electric griddle for us to use during our stay after we asked if they had one. The views were absolutely breathtaking both day and night! The place mentions it can hold up to four, but to be honest I would say three max. would be better suited. For the two of us, the size was just right, but I can see how additional people can start to make the place feel a little cramped. There was also an issue with ants inside - might want to consider spraying! But it didn't really bother us. You will also have to deal with a few stray moths that come in through the front door as you go in and out, but again it was pretty much a non-issue for us. The bed is super comfortable! I wish I could take that bed home with me! There are also enough cooking utensils, spices, etc. to make a meal. We cooked everything from eggs and bacon to steak while we were staying there with the items in the kitchen. If you want to stay somewhere in the Bay area that is centrally located to places such as San Francisco, Berkeley, Napa/Sonoma, and Oakland, but feels like you are still away from the city, definitely consider this place! 01 February 2016 - 03:26:00

    My husband and I spent 5 days in this cottage. Waking up to the view every morning was amazing. We are from the East Coast so we found it to be the perfect location to explore San Francisco & Berkeley. Everything in the home was as described. The bed was super comfortable & the Italian restaurant nearby was amazing! This stop was part of our West Coast honeymoon and we are already discussing when to come back! 10 January 2017 - 17:11:00

    We stayed at this quiet little "bungalow" in El Sobrante. It was conveniently located to family in Pinole and San Francisco, tucked in a quiet little neighborhood. We didn't end up using the kitchen much, but nice to have it available. The bed and accommodations were great. We would 100% recommend staying at Joyce and Anne's property. The quiet view from the balcony was worth every penny. We saw wild turkeys, deer and a fox, as well as the view of The Bay. The Blackstock Family ~ Littleton, CO July 2017 20 July 2017 - 19:54:00

    Being here felt like we had driven hours from the City yet we were so close to everywhere we wanted to see. That is, if we could motivate ourselves to leave the sweet little cottage in the hills of West Contra Costa County. Thanks! Sam and Pete, the Bronx 25 July 2017 - 13:29:00

    This was the perfect place for me to stay for some much needed quiet time. The cottage is cute and cozy, and the views are just beautiful. The king size bed is very comfortable. I'll be coming back. 25 September 2017 - 20:50:00

    We had a wonderful quiet and romantic time with a beautiful view at this property. Some walks and a bay View, enjoy the sunsets with a glass of wine. You need a car to go anywhere from here, but you park right at the door and everything is just a breeze! Thank you Ann and Joyce!! 13 November 2014 - 01:33:32

    In the last month, we have booked 2 trips to this cottage, for a total of 13 days!!! We had to book a second trip because we couldn't stay away! We fell in love with this cottage! Clean, cozy, and offers the most spectacular views!! From the kitchen to the bathroom!! Anne and Joyce are super helpful, offering more clean towels during my stay since we practically moved in!! :) Thank you Anne and Joyce for, yet another, incredibly relaxing vacation! 27 March 2015 - 14:33:27

    Stayed for a long Easter weekend and couldn't have been more pleased. We wanted to stay between San Francisco and Napa and this was the perfect choice. The cottage was the ideal place to stay to enjoy a quiet peaceful atmosphere. The view of the bay from the top of the hill was extraordinary. The huge bed was perfect and the quiet was welcoming after long days out exploring the area. We will definitely be back the next time we are in town. 09 April 2015 - 14:05:06

    Charming, quirky, peaceful, beautiful view, a bit cramped for 4 but an excellent retreat for wine tasting day trips. We all loved it. 08 May 2015 - 04:13:12

    We had a fantastic stay at this cottage. So cozy and loved the king size bed. Also loved the peacefulness and the wildlife. Would definitely stay there again. Great location. Close to everything we wanted to do while in San Francisco. 14 September 2015 - 23:51:21

    Very much enjoyed our stay in a clean and nicely maintained cottage with an awesome view. The owners were relaxed and easy to work with and the cottage had everything we needed. 22 September 2015 - 05:13:57

    This place was fabulous! The location, the view, the overall experience was great! It was centrally located for what we need to do, people to see, and visit the sites. Definitely want to rent a car to go to and from the house. The bed was comfortable for me but was a little too soft for my girlfriend who has neck and back issues. She needs a more firm mattress so she used the futon which helped her sleep better. I think I would have rated an 8 out of 5 stars (if thats if there was a gas grille to cook on so we didn't have to go out to eat every night (gets expensive if you go out to eat every night), but I can see maybe why there wasn't one with how dry it has been and chance of starting a fire, but I would recommend staying here and probably will if my girl friends daughter continues to live where she is now.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Bayview Cottage. It had everything we needed in the kitchen and elsewhere; great views, comfortable king size bed, convenient to our daughter; no hassles with owners; felt like our private cottage; nice neighborhood; the only surprise was the curvy road up to the top of the hill; it's important to have a GPS to get to the right place. 26 October 2017 - 01:04:00
