This charming new studio cottage, with its vaulted ceilings, operable sky lights and open floor plan has a clean and spacious feel. It comes with a fully equipped modern kitchen, dinning table for four, queen sized bed, tiled bathroom and comfy sitting area with hi-def flat screen TV, DVR and wireless Internet. Phone service for local calls and linen exchange is also provided. Carriage door can be opened onto a garden patio with BBQ. 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.
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.
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!
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.
