Nice Neighborhood!!! Thrift shop dump cottage!!!
We were in town for medical appointment in San Francisco and Berkeley. This cottage was anything but lovely. From the moment we drove up we saw a stack of old mattresses, old shop vacuum, wheelbarrow and other debris right outside the door. When we arrived Greg was still "cleaning" even though we arrived approx. 1 1/2 hours late due to traffic. The fridge had old food, windows had torn or no screens, old stained worn out bedding (not 100% sure the bedding was even clean), there was a musty mildew smell, the stove pilot light kept going out giving a gas odor when my husband relit the pilot it looked like the stove or oven had not been cleaned in years. Bathroom had many different used bars of soap, shampoo bottles, sponges, used toothpaste and toothbrushes. There was no water pressure from the shower. We were extremely disappointed all around however we did feel safe and was quiet we were planning on staying 5 nights however when we were able to condense or doctors appointments into 1 1/2 days we high tailed it out of there. The cottage has potential but the owner needs to put some work and money into.
