It's location is the best---one block to Solano Avenue with its wonderful shops, world class restaurants, banks, post office and movie theaters, one block to public transportation, walkable distance to UC, and the Gourmet Ghetto, or quick and easy access to freeways should you have a car. Parking available.
We enjoyed a confortable stay in our cottage. I kept us warm was very close to Solano and our children's home in Albany. The cottage was well appointed and very private.
My husband and I stayed at Joan's lovely cottage while visiting family in the area. Location was great for driving , also public transportation. Nice coffee shop and grocery store near by. We would definitely stay here again! Also the neighborhood was quiet, and we welcomed that after long, busy days of touring. Thank you Joan!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage is new construction (in the last 5 years or so). It is meticulously maintained and everything is supplied. It is located behind the main house on a site originally occupied by a detached garage. The garden landscaping has been completely redone and is most attractive. Joan, our host, could not have been more friendly or helpful. We even called her cell phone to ask a question and she was out shopping, but happily returned the call. This is a one room bed room/kitchen, sitting area, and bath. It was a pleasure to stay here.
Perfect spot for a short stay in Berkeley/East Bay
Private and quiet
Walkable to everything you would need in downtown Albany
The Cottage is perfect in that it is well appointed with it's own patio area, lovely garden and spacious and efficient. We were visiting my brother and his family close by but their home is too small to accommodate everyone. This was a perfect spot for my elderly mother and I to get away from the hustle and bustle of their home and enjoy peaceful down time. Joan (owner) is very accommodating and has provided you with a lot of information about the area in a comprehensive notebook in the cottage. We will definitely be back!
This was a great place for us to stay for a long weekend. It was peaceful and had everything we needed. We would be happy to stay there again in the future.
Berkeley sits across the bay from San Francisco which is easily accessible by car, bus, BART or ferry. Just to the north is the beautiful Napa Valley with is world class wineries, to the east are Lake Tahoe and Yosemite National park for hiking, skiing and camping and to the south lie the Monterey Bay with its wonderful aquarium and Carmel. In the San Francisco Bay there is boating, fishing and windsurfing. Marin county, to the north-east has great hiking trails and beaches.
