WONDERFUL PLACE IN THE BERKELEY HILLS

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this property. The listing was accurate regarding the location of the property. It is convenient to public transportation and also allows for some wonderful walks in Berkeley. The listing also accurately reflected the appearance and amenities of the property, and we enjoed the well- maintained and spotless appearance of the property. We found the owners to be very helpful in directing us to local activities and restaurants that we might enjoy. They provided guides to local attractions and restaurants, and a book detailing specifc walks that wind through the city. We recommend visiting the Cheese Board Pizza restaurant which has a good selection of foods and jazz at noon, Philz Coffee, and the original Peet's Coffee in Berkeley. We also enjoyed visiting the Rose Gardent in Berkeley, and Tilden Park. We would definitely recommend this property to friends or relatives.

RELAXING GETAWAY FOR 2

  • 4 of 5
Peaceful, convenient, reasonably priced. Friendly owners, accomadating. Property has basic essentials for everyday use, convenient on street parking, easy property access. Bathroom is small with poor lighting. More current public transportation information available on site is needed. Our recommendations to improve property would also include
1. Different type of towels for full body use. Current towels are very thick
2. Portable cooler for guests to use on their day trips
3. A current channel guide for local cable service
4. Inexpensive supply of movies to watch on DVD player
5. 2 basic inexpensive bikes to use while visiting
6. Upon arrival, an inviting gesture would be fresh fruit and cold bottled water in refrigerator. We purchased ice cube trays to use during our stay.

It is an excellent value and we would definitely stay again

TREE HOUSE COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed a lovely 3 days at the cottage. Clean, and comfortable with everything we needed. The ambiance outside is just beautiful. The owner was out of town, but made sure to check in to see if anything was needed and greeted us upon her return. As indicated in prior reviews, stairs are a bit of an issue to navigate but not a deterrent overall. We loved it, and would definitely return.

COZY CABIN IN A GREAT LOCATION

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed our stay in the cozy cabin. Susan and Jim were great hosts. The cabin is in the perfect location for visiting Berkeley and surrounds and very close to Tilden Park for miles of hiking trails. Caveats:The stairs are very steep with narrow treads and definitely a challenge especially in the middle of the night as the bathroom is downstairs and on the 2nd floor you can only walk in the center as the roof is at a very steep angle.

PERFECT FOR 2

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here while doing some business and personal travel in the area. It made a great launching pad for our little adventures in the Bay area and the owner's met us upon or late evening arrival and were very kind and helpful. The cottage had a lot of nice little touches that made it very comfortable. The property was very much as described, it was very clean, and there were a lot of great places to eat in the area. And views were excellent!

As others have said, the only real issue is the very steep staircase to the loft bedroom. It did not impede our stay in any way, but be sure you feel comfortable navigating a steep staircase before booking.

BERKELEY HILLS COTTAGE GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
The location was fabulous, so near Tilden Park where I walked with my dogs every day and I could also walk about 20 minutes to "downtown" North Berkeley. The cottage was charming although because my dogs refused to go up the stairs after an initial curious peek, I didn't spend any time there and the rest of the cottage felt quite small. Staying there for a month might have exaggerated the coziness, if I was there just for a few days or a week, maybe not. When it was sunny and warm I hung out in the lovely garden area where the dogs were more than welcome. My hosts were fabulous, anytime I needed anything it was right there. Susan was very friendly and warm and loved my dogs and even checked in on them a few times when I was away. The first week she took us for a walk to a certain part of Tilden, a great little dog walk that I would not have known about otherwise. All in all I was totally satisfied and would recommend this place highly.
