An easy review to write! Our second stay here at the cottage. This year we were here for eight weeks in the autumn. We cooked more meals at home this time, explored more hilly roadways and neighborhoods in the Berkeley Hills. We entertained more visitors in the cottage for meals than during our first year. I am a watercolor painter. I will travel home this year with a good supply of paintings and drawings that I did as I looked out at Elaine's beautiful garden. My husband worked on research either on the patio table under the umbrella or in the living room, laptop comfortably positioned in lap.
Elaine and Tom responded quickly and thoughtfully to any fix-it needs or questions we had. Highly recommend this cottage to you who are traveling this way. Many thanks to Elaine and Tom.

Berkeley hills retreat

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful, perfectly maintained Berkeley Hills cottage, 5 minutes drive to shops and restaurants on Solano, very close to Tilden park, lovely, private patio with table and chairs. Fully equipped kitchen, plenty of towels, excellent washer and dryer. We stayed about a week while I interviewed for work. We were there with our one year old. Highly recommend. Elaine and Tom are great hosts.

Shangri-La

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic stay with incredible views of the bay and city from our front door. Very private, beautiful gardens, close to Tilden park, cool being in the clouds. This was our first trip to the bay area and the only thing we would have changed is being closer to town for the conveniences of shopping,eating etc. otherwise an awesome place to stay!

WONDERFUL home away from home

  • 5 of 5
I agree with other reviewers that this rental is even more amazing than its official description. We stayed here while visiting our daughter and everything about the cottage was great – the design, the furnishings, the lighting – it all contributed to a beautiful, peaceful ‘home away from home’ to return to each day. We loved the living/dining/kitchen areas which were spacious and inviting, as well as the private patio where we sat in the sunshine and enjoyed coffee each morning. The bedroom was also pretty with a very comfortable bed. The outside garden was lovely. We enjoyed being up in the hills and took a gorgeous walk one day in the nearby Tilden Park. We hated to leave and would love to return.

Superb from San Diego

  • 5 of 5
We spent Thanksgiving week here visiting our daughter and family and hosting Thanksgiving Dinner for 6. Our two year old granddaughter felt so at home! Elaine and Tom were incredibly helpful in all ways. The house was well-equippped from top to bottom and our guests raved about the architecture, space, and comfort. We had a wonderful week and can not wait to return.
