Wonderfully comfy space with a great deck and yard. Nice views walking the neighborhood. I’m not sure what issues a previous reviewer had with the bed, we found it to be very comfy. Would definitely stay again.

The home was very nice and comforting. Very private and a soothing backyard cottage all you yourself! Didn’t expect less or more, it was perfect! Neighborhood is nice and quiet & feels like the great out doors! The bed and pillows make a good nights rest!

Response from Laurel And Sky:
Thanks for the feedback! One thing we have learned is that beds are so subjective. The memory foam mattress is about 1.5 years old but I know it's not for everyone.

Laurel and Sky’s backyard hideaway is so cozy. It was perfect for my brief business stint in Oakland. Comfortable bed, warm, quiet and private space. They were thoughtful hosts who checked in halfway through my stay. I would love to return.

We stayed at this beautiful guest house on our trip to San Francisco. We had a car with us so the location was very convenient, just 15-20 min from SF. It is very cozy place and we felt safe there. I would definitely recommend it to anyone and would go back there again!!
