A refuge of beauty, serenity and simplicity in the heart of North Berkeley.

  • 5 of 5

I was so pleased with this absolutely charming garden cottage in N. Berkeley. It was pristine, comfortable and set up so brilliantly. It had everything I needed and was easy to find, and in a great location. It was quiet and peaceful and surrounded by lush landscaping. The owner could not have been nicer and more accommodating. I hope to be able to stay here sometime soon.

Lovely.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the cottage. The location, very close to Solano Ave. and easily accessible to all Berkeley has to offer, is perfect. We were a little concerned about the lack of air conditioning but with windows open, the 60 degree nights were perfect for sleeping. Would definitely return!!

What a wonderful little escape from a busy lilfe.

  • 5 of 5

This little gem is nestled in a quiet neighborhood and surrounded in beautiful foliage. The interior is nicely appointed and feels very roomy. The owner is a delight and very helpful.

We will go back any time we are in the area.

Wonderful and peaceful stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific time at the cottage in Albany. It was clean, quiet, and we'll appointed. The grounds and gardens offered a terrific retreat from a very stressful weekend. Joan, the owner was very kind and helpful. There were plenty of restaurants and shopping close by. We rented a car at the airport. But next time we will just use Uber and walk to destinations. Can't wait to return. Next time we visit the Berkeley area we will definitely rent this place again. So much better than staying in a noise dirty hotel.

This cottage made me fall in love with Berkeley

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved my stay at Joan's. It was an extended one, so I had lots of opportunity to tuck into the cozy space, open up the skylights on those sunny day, and take frequent two block walks to explore the bustling and creative shopping street -- Solano Avenue. When I got on the plane home, I wanted to turn around and go right back.
