Quaint Garden Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This lovely garden cottage was perfect! It was close to anything you might want to do in Berkeley. It was cozy but modern with everything you might need for a lengthy stay. Joan is a warm and friendly hostess with two kitty's to greet you. I felt safe and comfortable and will definitely be staying again!

Always a treat to stay in the red-door cottage

  • 5 of 5

Joan has a welcoming, beautifully landscaped property and a friendly welcome. Everything is taken care of. We have stayed in the cottage several times and feel lucky when the cottage is available for our stay.

This cottage is so cute and so easy to stay in! We loved every bit of it!

  • 5 of 5

This was the best place we've stayed in a long time! Everything was so well cared for and so comfortable. The landscaping is so pretty, the accommodations so welcoming, and Joan is lovely. We would highly recommend it and plan to stay here again when we come back to the area.

Wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was an amazing space. It was perfect while visiting our son and daughter-in-law. It was open and airy, clean and well stocked with every thing we needed. The gardens were beautiful. There were places to sit and enjoy the sun or the shade depending on the weather that day. Parking was never a problem. Grocery stores and restaurants were nearby. We will definitely be back!

Very nice property

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time using this service and it was very nice. They send you detailed information about your stay and the amenities around. There is also a book with all of it listed in the room. They have a lot of little things people have bought in the kitchen to make it a little easier and there are soaps, lotions, etc. in the bathroom. The only problem I had was there was not shampoo/conditioner when I was there so I had to get some. I am sure if I would have notified the owners they would have brought to me though. They have lights walking up the driveway to the house so that is very nice if you are coming in and it is dark. Overall a great experience.
