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.
The Cottage is a very comfortable, self contained, well thought out, conversion of a detached garage. It is beautifully decorated with modern, well functioning, appliances. The bed was very comfortable, as was the feel of the entire cottage. We had considerable rain during our stay, but I still enjoyed the beautiful gardens. Joan was kind, accomodating and the right amount of helpful. We met upon our arrival, and did not see her again during our stay. This area of Berkeley was a perfect area to stay; a short & cheap uber to downtown Berkeley; a short walk to the Solano district; a 10 minute walk to the N Berkeley Bart. Will definitely return.
The studio was an absolute delight. It's a great location, in walking distance to Solano Ave and its great restaurants and coffee shops. We were visiting family in El Cerrito, and the location was perfect, but it is also an easy drive to great places like the Monterey Market and the Berkeley campus. The studio itself is beautiful: a lovely outside sitting area, and open and light space inside. Even though it is essentially just one room, you never feel it that way; there is a sleeping area, a sitting area, and an eating area, and somehow, the design is such that you really feel the different spaces. We loved it and will definitely stay again next time we are in Berkeley. A great find!
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.
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.
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.
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.
