Cozy modern cottage, clean comfortable perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I Loved this nicely decorated sweet cottage just 1.5 blocks from Solano avenue in a lovely neighborhood. My hostess Joan was very response to any questions I had. I especially loved the large hot shower at the end of a long day. It was exactly what I was looking for. I hope to stay next time I come to Berkeley.

Return Stay

  • 5 of 5

We reviewed this stay previously so all we can add as a recommendation is that we enjoyed it so much we re-booked for a recent three week stay. We can report that everything is as it was on our previous visit. The cottage continues to be well maintained with the short walk to Solano Avenue and its shopping and restaurants, one of its main features. The hosts are welcoming. Street parking is always available. As you can tell from the picture, you will not be renting a house, but if you think you will be comfortable in a charming well maintained space similar in size to a Marriott Residence Inn, then please consider this offering at half the price.

Quiet, lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is aesthetically pleasing, kitchen well-equipped, hot water quick and plentiful, bed very comfortable with lovely sheets and comforter, all equipment easy to operate, and location a block away from Solano avenue ideal. Very quiet. Garden beautiful. Joan is helpful, friendly, and prompt in replying. We will definitely return.

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.

Cozy respite.......

  • 4 of 5

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!

Very convenient and very well maintained cottage.

  • 5 of 5

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.
