Overview

Berkeley Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Berkeley, California

Coming to California? What better way to spend a trip than nestled in your own private cottage? You’ll be living like a local in no time when you check-in at this Berkeley gem. 

 

This darling guest cottage is ideal for a couple’s weekend away or a laid back trip with friends. One bedroom provides a Queen-sized Bed, and an elevated loft, accessible by ladder, can provide additional sleeping as well. You’ll love the traditional Tudor-style architecture that frames this private escape. Natural light and warmth flood this home with private en suite bathroom. You’ll love coming home after a day of exploration, grabbing a book, lounging on the patio, or catching up on work under a sky lit desk (free, high-speed Wi-Fi). This chic yet comfortable property offers exactly what you need to rest and relax while traveling to the Bay Area. 

 

Located in the heart of the Claremont/Elmwood area of Berkeley, this home positions you perfectly to explore the best of Northern California. The famed University of California, Berkeley, is a brief 5 minute drive from your accommodations, making it easy for you to catch a game at the recently renovated Cal Memorial Stadium, a concert at the Greek Theater, or take a tour of the on-campus Berkeley Art Museum. The historic Claremont Club and Spa is a mere 10 minute walk, where you can access the Bay Area's best family aquatic facility, complete with a 25-yard heated outdoor recreational pool, a 25-yard heated lap pool and outdoor jet-stream whirlpool. The Club also hosts a sauna and steam room, as well as 10 outdoor tennis courts.

For dinner and drinks, top-rated Elmwood/Rockridge restaurants and bars are within walking distance, including Wood Tavern, Southie, and The Trappiste Provisions. Grab a treat at Tara's Organic Ice Cream or Ici and then catch a movie at the Elmwood Neighborhood Cinema -all within walking distance! Tilden Park, Lawrence Hall of Science and the Botatnical Garden of Berkeley (with 13,000 different kinds of plants from around the world) are less than 3 miles from your accommodations! The metropolis of San Francisco is also nearby, accessible via BART from the Rockridge Station, providing many more sights to be seen. Plan a visit to the legendary Alcatraz Island or sample seafood fare at Fisherman's Wharf. The wine country of Sonoma and Napa counties also make for a wonderful day trip.

Whether you're here to wander and relax or visit your UC Berkely student, this guest cottage makes the ideal home base for your stay!

Beautiful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is an artfully and thoughtfully designed cottage, modern but warm, impeccably clean, in perfect condition, and stocked with beautiful amenities. The owners were helpful, friendly and immediately responsive to my questions and requests. In a picturesque neighborhood at the foot of the Berkeley Hills, it is ten minutes' walking distance to the Claremont Resort, where the owners arranged for us to use the health club and pool (for a modest fee) and two minutes' walk to a gourmet market and bakery (with great coffee). As described in the listing, parking was always available on the street directly in front of the cottage. I could not recommend the accommodation more highly, and would love to stay there again. One note, there is Wi-Fi in the cottage but no T.V. or other media. This was fine for us.

Fantastic, homey place with great access to public

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this cottage. The owners were incredibly welcoming and helpful during our stay. We have two children and they loved the loft. The cottage was so much more comfortable than a hotel room yet it offered everything that a hotel would offer. The location was also fantastic- we were able to walk to the BART easily yet had tons of available parking for our rental car. The owners also gave us access to the Claremont Club- a 10 minute walk from the property. This Club is a wonderful swimming and athletic club that our family absolutely loved. It's considered one of the best swimming pools in the area.

We would highly recommend this cottage for a stay. When we are in town next we will definitely stay here again!

Beauty in Berkeley

  • 5 of 5

Such a wonderful cottage, modern and clean, surrounded by two beautiful gardens. The bed is very comfortable, always a big plus. But best of all is the quiet. Claremont is a beautiful area in Berkeley. Convenient to restaurants, BART, and shopping.

Forego Hotels for this Slice of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

We spent to perfect days in this peaceful, beautifully designed and appointed cottage. Tranquility greets you and yet everything you could possibly want or need for activity and entertainment is just a short stroll away. The owners were warm and welcoming and the neighborhood is gorgeous. Just a moment away is a great coffee shop and Star Grocery to fill your fridge with delights. We only wish we could take this cottage home with us...it was that adorable and perfect! It was my first time to Berkeley, but by no means now will it be my last and always my first hope will be to call this cottage my home away from home while I visit.

a graceful cottage in a beautiful berkely neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the cottage for 10 days at the end of May, and could not have had a better experience. The cottage is freestanding and provides complete privacy. The design is graceful - the exterior is a tudor style that matches the main house. The interior is quite spacious, with a separate living room, bedroom, and even an office to work in. It was immaculate on my arrival, and the owners provided a complimentary bottle of wine and fresh flowers to brighten it and make me feel welcome.

The location is another big plus. The cottage is situated adjacent to the owner's home, in a beautiful neighborhood in Berkeley, so parking was easy and safety was not an issue. UC Berkeley is 5 minutes away, and College avenue is just a short walk. The Rockridge Bart station as also quite close by, and there is easy car access to San Francisco via highway 24.

The owners were lovely; happy to chat or answers questions when I had them, but also happy to let me have privacy. I can't imagine a better spot to stay on my next trip to the Bay area, so I am hoping the cottage is free the next time I am in town!
