What a Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed in this cottage last February, and could not have enjoyed our stay in the Bay Area more had we been anywhere else at all. The cottage itself is a tidy, one-bedroom apartment, but the spacious layout of the main room and kitchenette, the surrounding gardens, and the lovely view give it all a relaxing, reinvigorating air of serenity. The neighborhood is peaceful, yet within easy reach of the best of Berkeley, and the owners themselves could not be nicer, or more accomodating. I would never consider staying anywhere else the next time I'm in the area, and I highly recommend it to all my friends!

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was better than we expected. Quiet, serene and clean, a perfect place for my husband and I to stay while visitng our son and family who live nearby. The grounds were magical and there even was a deer who welcomed us when we arrived. Carol could not have been more accommodating to our needs. A wonderful experience and hope to stay there again when we visit.

Exceeding Expectations

  • 5 of 5
What a lovely cottage. My wife and I are vacation rental veterans and, without a doubt, this was easily the most charming, magical rental we have stayed in. Ever. The accommodations are better than depicted. The grounds, immaculate. The interior is tastefully decorated and clean. The furniture is updated from the pictures on the website by the way. There is a partial view to the bay and the neighborhood is quiet and good for some (hilly) walks. We most certainly will be back if they will have us. On that note, the owner was responsive and clearly cares about her guests. Can't wait to return.

A Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5
What a peaceful and relaxing setting. The Berkeley Hills are cool despite the summer heat. The cottage is beautifully appointed and stocked with all the essentials, including tour books and wine tour guides. Deer cross the property and wildflowers are bursting out everywhere, especially near the waterfall. We left some current literature for the next lucky guests! Highly recommended.

Peaceful Retreat in the Berkeley Hills

  • 5 of 5
My daughter and I spent 5 wonderful evenings in this peaceful cottage. The accommodations were exactly as described, clean and very well maintained. Carol, the owner, made sure we were settled in comfortably. One should probably have a car if you plan to spend time in downtown Berkeley or to take the BART, but the cottage is within walking distance of campus. Overall, a very enjoyable stay and I would recommend the cottage to both family and friends.

Lovely home, great view

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have stayed in many Home Away rentals over the years, and this was one of the very best. It was spacious, and the furnishings were tasteful and comfortable. For those who like to cook it has a very well equipped kitchen.

If anything, the listing does not do justice to the wonderful location and quality of the property. This is a historic homestead in the Berkeley Hills, which Carol has lovingly improved. It really is a very special place.

Carol is a friendly, but unobtrusive host, and very responsive. The only problem we had during our stay was a loss of internet service. When we let her know of the problem by email, she was on it within minutes, following up with her internet provider to see that the problem was solved quite quickly.

We go to Berkeley with some regularity and are very pleased to have discovered our new "Home Away" from home. We will be back.
