Magical one bedroom, fully furnished garden cottage with filtered bay views and serene garden outlooks located in an elegant area of the North Berkeley Hills yet only 4 blocks to campus. Easy walk to gourmet ghetto, boutique stores and BART with easy airport and SF access. This historically landmarked property consists of 1/3 acre of award winning landscaping with pond and waterfall and beautiful garden bay views as well as the house and cottage which are well separated for maximum privacy.
The cottage is light, sunny and cheerful with high-end amenities. Cable TV and high- speed wireless Internet are provided.
One garage space is available to the cottage guest.
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!
We had a last minute opportunity to travel to the San Francisco area and I was lucky to find this wonderful rental still available. Not only is it comfortable and charming, but the views are spectacular. The surroundings are so quiet, yet a two-minute drive takes you right down into Berkeley. Everything was as promised and Carol was easy to deal with.
I would recommend that you have a car here and there is a garage spot waiting for your use. While you can walk down the hill into town, the climb back up is rather challenging. I did walk over to the rose garden though and that was lovely. An yes you can cab it to/from BART if you so desire.
We hope to return and pretend that we are locals!
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.
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.
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.
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.
This property is within walking distance to UC Berkeley and the famous Berkeley Gourmet Ghetto which houses Alice Waters' Chez Panaisse famous restaurant, as well as many other superior restaurants and shops. Two Bart stations are within long walking distance (1.3 and 1.5 miles) for easy SF and Airport access. Tilden Park, which is comprised of acres of beautiful hiking trails, Anza Lake, public Golf, stables, a Little Farm with fun animals for children to pet, a steam engine train and Merry-Go Round and many lovely outdoor opportunities is less than a 2 mile drive. This is a well located yet elegant location where many UC professors reside.
WE HAVE A NO SMOKING POLICY WHEN INSIDE THE COTTAGE. There is an outside deck where smoking is allowed as long as the door to the cottage is kept shut and all cigarette debris is discarded in the garbage can and not brought into the cottage.
