Cute little cottage
Emir and Sami out did themselves as hosts. We were there to welcome our new granddaughter and they generously left us a bottle of champagne as a welcome to our family. The snacks they set out as we arrived was so special The cottage is a gem! I can’t rave enough about this find. We will be back for sure! Everything was comfy and cozy from the bedding to the towels and bath supplies. Very thoughtful in every way! 💜

Great Cottage in the East Bay
My wife and I stayed with Amir in El Sobrante, CA for three weeks in May 2021. The cottage is located in the back yard of his house and arranged so that you have plenty of privacy. You have your own private driveway and your own private patio. While the cottage is small (475 square feet), it is extremely well organized. Thus, two people could live there very comfortably and we did. The bed and bedding were comfortable. The TV was great. The kitchen was well-stocked for two people with kitchen ware, coffees (your choice of Nespresso, French press, or instant), teas, spices, etc. The bathroom had a cute claw footed tub. It included several choices for shampoos, body wash, etc. and fluffy comfortable towels like you would find in a fine hotel. It also included new tooth brushes, and tooth paste. The whole cottage was tastefully decorated and in fact, cute as a button. My wife and I have used VRBO quite often (perhaps 30 times). Amir and his wife were the best hosts we have ever had. Whenever, we had a question, needed help, or needed something we texted him and he got back to us almost immediately. In addition, we were welcomed with iced champagne, chocolates, cookies, and a large bowl of fruit. Amir’s cottage would be a great place to stay if you are visiting the East Bay. In addition, it is close to BART where you can catch rapid transit into San Francisco.
