About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 2.

Sweet 1-bedroom 'in-law' cottage, one block from wonderful Solano Avenue with its many restaurants, fantastic shopping, bookstores and movie theaters and easy access to San Francisco, the wine country, freeways and BART.

The cottage has vaulted ceilings throughout, tile floors in the living room and carpet in the bedroom. Kitchen with gas range, refrigerator, toaster, microwave & coffee maker. Cable TV w/ flat screen tv, clock radio/ Cd & MP3 player, DVD player and wireless internet. Telephone for local calls only, credit or calling card required for long distance calls. There are two ventilating skylights in the bedroom, so though the cottage is small it has a light and airy feeling.

There is a Queen size European sleep works bed in bedroom. Absolutely no pets and no smoking permitted. A weekly linen exchange of sheets and towels is provided.

I do my utmost to keep the calendar up to date.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We appreciated spending this week at "Rose Cottage".

It is charming and very convenient and private. When we plan another trip to visit our family we will be back in touch with you in hopes of returning here.

Longer renters must provide their own toilet paper, garbage bags, etc. Although the cottage is mostly one level, there are a few steps to climb up to the bathroom and the interior in general is not suited for small children or people with mobility issues.

The property was fantastic--beautiful flowers-very quiet,clean and private.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Sarah's VRBO. The property was fantastic. It was exceptionally clean and filled with everything we could ever need for our stay. It was spacious and yet also very cozy. It was centrally located to all the places we needed to go in the area. Sarah was so helpful. She was always available to us, yet gave us complete privacy. We would definitely go back to this great VRBO in the future.

Wonderful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was a cozy comfortable place for us to stay in the Bay area. It was very quiet but close to I-80 for getting around the area and there are restaurants and a grocery store in easy walking distance.

The bed was very comfortable, and everything was clean. The kitchen was well supplied if we needed to cook.Sarah was a great host, welcoming us when we arrived and checking in to see if we had what we need during our stay. We will stay there again when we are in the Bay area.

Rose Cottage is a Lovely Get-Away for Two

  • 5 of 5

Sarah is an architect and you can see her design touches in this lovely, beautifully built and decorated cottage. She was very helpful and made herself available to us during our stay. She includes maps and information about Berkeley. We will definitely go back again!
