FLAGSTONE COTTAGE - A SUNNY AND WARM GARDEN COTTAGE!

Berkeley Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Studio Cottge, sleeps two, one bathroom

Our cottage is located in the beautiful, tree lined neighborhood of North Berkeley. Ours is a bright and sunny detached studio, in-law furnished with all the amenities you need including high speed wi-fi, Comcast / Direct TV and a Blue-Ray player with an HD flat screen TV. Radiant floors keep your home away from home at a constant, comfortable temperature year round.

A separate entrance through the native plant garden allows you privacy as you come and go.

We are also perfectly located near either bustling Solano Avenue or the delectable Gourmet Ghetto. You can take a leisurely walk to both neighborhoods where you will find too many restaurants, pubs, cafe's, boutiques, bookstores, movie theatres and world class restaurants (like Alice Water's Chez Panisse), to list.

SOLANO AVENUE – Solano Ave., located just one block over from the house, is the highlight of North Berkeley. You’ll find a diverse array of restaurants to choose from, bars, an old fashioned Pub, a wonderful independent bookstore, a movie theatre, spas, and boutique shops. You can read more about it here http://www.solanoavenueassn.org/saa_directory/directory.html.

We are in a true neighborhood with all the local services you could hope for. About 100 yds. from the house you’ll find Andronico’s. Andronico’s is an upscale, locally founded supermarket. Here you’ll discover all the freshest and fanciest ingredients. Would you like some wine with your beautifully cooked meal? Visit Solano Cellars, our local wine merchant, located nearby.

Something for breakfast? There is a marvelous local bakery, La Farine. Need your morning caffeine fix? Stroll over to Peet’s Coffee & Tea (also locally founded) ; open early every day.

Forget to pack some essential toiletries? Either Pharmaca Integrative Pharmacy or Whole Health Apothecary will have what you’re missing and more.

Two ½ blocks away is the North Berkeley branch of our public library system. It’s in a beautiful historic building that has been recently renovated. If you want to rent videos, there’s a, independently owned video store, just around the corner on Solano Ave.

GOURMET GHETTO – If you’ve ever heard of the world famous Chez Panisse then you’ll find it in Berkeley’s Gourmet Ghetto. Take a Culinary Walking Tour or experience the food truck phenomenon at Berkeley’s Off The Grid (http://offthegridsf.com/). Check out http://www.gourmetghetto.org/ plan your walk and make a day of it!

A hike through Tilden Regional Park is a fantastic way to experience nature. It has something for everyone….the sportsman, the nature enthusiast, kids and families. http://www.ebparks.org/parks/tilden

Visiting friends or family associated with UC Berkeley? We are located just two miles from campus with easy access to public transportation via AC Transit.

Want to travel farther afield? We are just over a mile (a 15 – 20 mile walk) from the North Berkeley BART station (Bay Area Rapid Transit). From here you can shoot right into San Francisco or points beyond. If you’re returning late at night, there is always a line of taxis just outside the station.

Quaint Cottage Memories

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we entered the gate, and saw the lovely courtyard and cottage, I knew we were going to have a relaxing and wonderful time. The cottage was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. Although it was our first time using a French Press, we watched a Youtube video that walked us through the process and we enjoyed the best coffee for the 4 days we were there. The neighborhood is very quiet, safe and peaceful, and I thoroughly enjoyed my early morning run and evening strolls down Solano Avenue with my husband. We were visiting our daughter, who is a student at Berkeley, and we are looking forward to future visits!

Lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5
We were very happy with the Flagstone Cottage. It completely lived up to the description, had all the amenities we needed, and was very fresh and cozy. It was also easy to reach and conveniently located within walking distance of fun restaurants and shopping while still in a lovely, quiet neighborhood.

Charming Berkeley Hills

  • 5 of 5
The Flagstone Cottage has everything a traveller hopes for: a warm welcome, comfort, cleanliness, and a good night's sleep. There's a bottle of wine and bowl of fresh fruit to settle in with, as well as coffee beans from Berkeley-born Peet's Coffee. The array of furnishings offer ideal storage solutions. The cottage is well set up for computer use and has a good Internet connection. The kitchen is brilliant. I learned how to make French press coffee with freshly-ground French Roast; it was the most delicious cup of coffee I've ever tasted. Everything is super clean and tidy, and I left a note and more-generous-than-usual tip thanking the the housekeeper, Maria. Finally, regarding a good night's sleep, the cottage is hidden away in pretty gardens, a soft fountain burbling outside. I felt safe and secure, was comfortable with windows open all night. The fragrant cross-breeze and super comfy bed with fresh linens, well, I fell asleep easily. I even had happy dreams! I will always stay at The Cottage when visiting Berkeley.

Wonderful, reclusive get away

  • 5 of 5
I was delighted with my 2 week stay at the cottage. In front of the entrance is a beautiful small courtyard surrounded by some tasteful plantings - on a nice day, it is a delightful place to sit. The cottage itself is a small charming studio with a very comfortable bed, a generously proportioned dresser and wardrobe, a desk and Wifi, and a small kitchen with laundry. Everything worked! It was mainly quiet and I was able to focus on my work. The location of the cottage is perfect with a supermarket, good restaurants/takeout, and interesting shops only a couple of blocks away. You can exist here very well without a car. The owner is a gracious host. I am looking forward to staying here again.

Cozy, bright home-away-from home.

  • 5 of 5
This sweet cottage only two blocks from restaurants and shops is hidden away from the street and sounds of traffic. It offers a quiet, cozy, clean, private and comfortable place to rest and recharge one's energy. The owner is gracious and helpful and a guest parking space is provided in the driveway. I very much enjoyed my 3-day stay at Flagstone Cottage. .
