Comfortable, Lovely, Well-equipped Garden Studio

  • 5 of 5

We gladly returned for our third stay at this home away from home. The roomy studio is aesthetically pleasing, quiet, well lit from the windows and indoor lights, and ideal for one or two people. The queen bed is so comfortable, the kitchen is well-equipped with even a dishwasher, the bathroom shower has instant hot water, the wifi works flawlessly, and the leather couch is super for stetching out on. And the garden is beautiful! Another big plus is that Solano Avenue is a block away filled up and down with fine restaurants, supermarkets, bookstores, a nursery, bank, stationery store, coffee shops, and so much more. We often come up to Berkeley to visit our family, and this is our first choice to stay if it is available.

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!!
