Cottage in Historic SF East Bay Downtown - 5416

 
 

Overview

Description

~If you have found our short-term rental on Sublet.com, please contact us via CHBO so that we can respond to your inquiry.~

As travelers ourselves, we have included favorite ideas from where we've stayed and paired them with guest suggestions resulting in a cozy and convenient home of comfort, quality and location. The furnished cottage is set back from the street with a native plant garden between it and the sidewalk. Enter and there are skylights, tile floors and high ceilings. There is a computer alcove with high speed internet.

When you stay here, you have the opportunity to be "green." All appliances are energy efficient. There are reminders to save water and energy. And you can recycle and compost with the local sanitation company.

This property is baby friendly. The double pane windows block out any crying from the next door residents. However, we don't have a crib or highchair. We've had children in the past who have worked out fine as long as they know not to walk on furniture in their shoes and the like. We do not allow pets.

Additional amenities:
`king size bed with Tempur-pedic mattress
`full size sofa bed in l.r.
`porch and patio

It is CHBO Complete except as per the following:
place setting for four
no garbage disposal
no icemaker or mixer

ALSO AVAILABLE from time to time: A furnished studio apartment with a kitchenette for one week minimum. It has many of the same amenities as the cottage. Do ask about the studio if that is all you require.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD: Point Richmond is a friendly and quaint community. Within short walking distance are all the necessary services. An indoor heated swimming pool is newly restored to its 1926 glory. And newly opened was a cinema once a month before the pandemic. Walk up the hill and see the bay with a three-bridge view encompassing Berkeley, Oakland, San Francisco and Marin.

This unique village in the East Bay is centrally located and convenient to bay area cities, the wine country, Marin County, and San Francisco. It is the community closest to Chevron, Nutiva, Sangamo Bio Sciences, Parker-Hannifin, Black Diamond Video and the Richmond Field Station (part of UC Berkeley). Pixar,Industrial Light and Magic, and many others are near, too.

Accessible hospitals are Kaiser, Alta Bates and Children's. Within a 20 minute drive are Contra Costa College, UC Berkeley, and Dominican University. Travis Air Force Base and Coast Guard stations are in the general vicinity.

The cottage has easy access to the Richmond San Rafael Bridge, Hwy 580, 80 and the Richmond Parkway. The Richmond BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) station is accessible by bus as is downtown San Rafael. BART connects to many Bay Area cities. Both San Francisco Int'l Airport and Oakland Int'l Airport serve this area.

My husband and I stayed at the Annex cottage for 4 months while on a travel nursing/PT assignment. This was a great place for long term stays. The cottage includes a spacious kitchen with ample amenities, productive desk setup with a nice ergonomic desk chair, cozy family room and bedroom with a king size bed and plenty of closet/shelf space. We looked forward to coming home from work to this clean, peaceful cottage in Point Richmond. We often used lemons from the lemon tree to cook and enjoyed the two outdoor spaces both in front and behind the cottage. There is plenty of restaurants, markets and nature in very close proximity to the cottage. We enjoyed running at Miller Knox park, the hiking trails with amazing views, going to Keller beach and looking at all the charming houses while walking in the neighborhood. Linda was a great host and responsive to our needs. We would highly recommend this cottage if looking for a place in this area! Thank you for a wonderful stay.

It was such a pleasure having you both stay here. Your enthusiasm made you a great neighbor during the pandemic. Thanks for pointing out the qualities of the Cottage and the qualities of Point Richmond.

I stayed at the Annex for more than two years while working on a project at Chevron. The cottage was clean and nicely decorated and came with a full size fridge and range/microwave adequate for everyday living needs. The television is “not smart”, but with the use of the cottage wi-fi, subscription(s) can be accessed (Netflix, Amazon Prime, etc.). Off street parking is included in the rental fee. Point Richmond is a quaint town and most of your daily needs are walkable. The location is convenient and I always felt safe in my surroundings. The cottage is in a quiet historic neighborhood with two small markets, pharmacy, post office, library and shops. A short walk up the street is a waterfront park complete with a mile-long walking loop around a pond and great views of the bridges, Oakland, and SF. There are also a couple miles of hiking trails in the hills nearby. To summarize: The Annex Cottage is perfect for a stay in the bay area, everything you need is either there or easily accessible. I highly recommend and would definitely stay again. I consider Off Street Parking, Washer and Dryer in the Unit and Wi-Fi a plus for this property.

I'm so glad to know what was positive about your very long stay. Much of what you said is why I live in Point Richmond. I'd enjoy having you stay again, too.

Have stayed here many times and it feels like a second home. The setup is perfect for 1 person with plenty of room to get organized and put things away. The owner thinks of everything from fresh flowers upon arrival to freshly ground coffee. I love the location. I have it booked for 2 more months in the fall. I hope to be a regular for some time.

Thank you for your review. Do you realize this is the third year you've stayed at The Annex Accommodations? You first came in 2013! I, too, hope you'll be a regular for some time. I always look forward to your arrival--and the fact that we can discuss new ideas for the cottage and any problems. The fall will come quicker than we can imagine.

Who would have thought that a 550 square foot house would be soooo perfect! It was our home for 2 months and from the terrific landlord to the amply supplied kitchen to the well-appointed EVERYTHING, we were most comfortable and lacked for nothing. (And, very importantly, the bed was a gem.) It rarely took us longer than 30 minutes to get to the Duboce Park area of San Francisco (longer in rush hour) and a 10 minute walk from the house was rewarded with views that stretched from the bridges Bay to Golden Gate. A great spot for lap swimming (and water aerobics) was at the Plunge, just 3 blocks away. In someone else's review, they said that after staying here they were motivated to make their own home more welcoming and organized. We feel the same way! Thanks for a great stay! MBN

Our Family had another wonderful stay this past Winter. The cottage always inspires us to make our own home as welcoming and immaculate! Great town, with shops and restaurants all within walking distance. They have not one but two markets, just a throw's stone away. Especially handy if you want to cook at "home". If we could live here forever we would, so in the meantime, we'll just keep coming back! Highly recommended and wonderful owners.

Wonderful stay! Cozy, beautifully maintained, peaceful, within a few blocks of a surprising range of restaurants in a quaint village setting. Plus easy access to all the Bay Area bridges and cities. Could not recommend it more highly.

This is a superb rental. My wife and I stayed 70 nights in an extended grandparent visit. The accommodation exceeded our expectations. There are privacy and quiet in a delightful historic community. It truly felt like home. The Newtons are perfect hosts. Unobtrusive and attentive. The space is immaculately maintained. Two small markets are steps away. A municipal indoor heated swimming pool and toddler playground are nearby. Our grandson loved them. So did I. Easy access to I-580 and I-80 and the great shopping in Emeryville.

My husband and I are travel nurses who managed to find this lovely home because we travel with a dog. Linda and Chris were very accommodating to us. We stayed for about three months here and loved it everyday. The home is filled with everything you could possibly need and one can tell that it was put there with love. The Newtons are a very sweet and friendly couple who made our stay here a pleasure. It's located a hop away from I580 that leads you to anywhere you want to go. Highly recommended.

Can't praise this place enough! Either as a vacation rental or temp corporate housing, this cottage is 5 star class and so is its hostess. My friend and I rented it for a few days in the spring and we were both impressed by the completeness of the kitchen facilities. Our hostess anticipated all our basic needs and exceeded our expectations in several areas. Everything is ship-shape and absolutely brand new. The color schemes are attractive and calming, the desk area is more than ample for two laptops, plus there's plenty of shelf space above if a longer term renter needed a place for books and papers. The mature trees and artistically planted natural garden and brickwork make this a secluded spot, very quiet -- either romantic or simply restful. It is close to the freeway and everything good but in a community that is somewhat eclectic and small town --best of both worlds. I admit I had a few fantasies about staying there forever, living a minimalist lifestyle yet with every modern convenience. There is not a single thing lacking. This is dreamlike convenience and luxury.
