The Perfect Cottage

  • 5 of 5

"The Cottage" was everything and more!! Joan had thought of everything to make our stay perfect. The kitchen is fully equipped and you really could prepare full meals if you were so inclined. The gardens are lovely and so peaceful. It was just nice to be able to come "home" and relax after full days in San Francisco and Berkeley. We hope to stay at the cottage again if Joan has any available dates. It is a very popular place and now we know why!!

Thank you Joan! Beautiful cottage. Loved the location and property.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was quaint, clean and well appointed. Very comfortable bed and lovely pillows and bed linens. The two skylights helped keep the space cool. The location is perfect within walking distance to shops and great restaurants. I will definitely rent from Joan when returning to Berkeley!

Wonderful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Joan's cottage for 12 days. It was perfect for us! It is a lovely spot. It is very clean, bright, cheerful, nicely decorated & very well appointed. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking, and it was nice for us to have a table for 4. Joan was responsive, friendly, and helpful. Location is excellent! We would certainly recommend it.
