We would love to host your family for your stay in Berkeley. Since we've lived here for a very long time, we're happy to provide our guests with lots of ideas of where to go and what to do. We love well behaved dogs so bring your pooch.

Elyce Klein purchased this cottage in 2005

Our cottage is truly unique. Codornices Creek runs through our park like yard. Best of all you can walk to so many places from here and you can easily get to both the Campus and San Francisco. A very fun, charming and lovely pace to stay.

Go to sleep to the sound of the creek. Enjoy our gardens and walk to Chez Panisse for dinner. Who could ask for more?

disappointing

  • 1 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 19, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
This is a cute little cottage but because the owners live here full time (they go to a mountain cabin when it's rented), the fridge/freezer/cupboards are full of their food items. There is no oven or microwave (the cooking appliance is a two burner induction cooker). The phone rings several times a day with people leaving messages for the owners. They do empty a dresser drawer for you and give you some closet space but the cottage is so small, that having all their personal items in it is a turn-off. I notice that many of the reviews were for the house in front which the owners also own and rent out to permanent tenants at this time. I would recommend looking for another rental.
Owner's Response: We're very sorry you were disappointed with the cottage. This has been our first negative review and we take it to heart. We are going to add a microwave for our guests. Also, we're a bit confused about why you heard the phone ring since we forwarded all calls.

I loved this little cottage by the creek. Its a little fantasy backyard hidden from the street but close to everything. Very romantic!

Really a Sweet Spot

We stayed at the Klein's house and it was just a lovely and beautiful place to be. It was like having an entire bed and breakfast to ourselves. It has that kind of charm. It's also very well located. We spent quite a bit of time just walking around the neighborhood which is so beautiful, charming and friendly. Great place to walk you dog. We're planning on staying again next time we visit Berkeley.

A Comfortable Berkeley Paradise

We have stayed at the Klein house many times over the past several years. It is an extremely comfortable, fully equipped home in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Berkeley (I know, I used to live there!). Coffee in the morning on the patio in the backyard, listening to the creek bubble by, one could be in the south of France, Tuscany, you get the idea. A casual stroll to Monterey/Hopkins intersection offers a splendid café, excellent dining, and one of the finest produce markets in a town known for food. The house is so much more than a B&B, and has an almost magical calming effect on us. A true gem.
