Overview

Berkeley Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Studio Cottge, sleeps two, one bathroom

Our cottage is located in the beautiful, tree lined neighborhood of North Berkeley. Ours is a bright and sunny detached studio, in-law furnished with all the amenities you need including high speed wi-fi, Comcast / Direct TV and a Blue-Ray player with an HD flat screen TV. Radiant floors keep your home away from home at a constant, comfortable temperature year round.

A separate entrance through the native plant garden allows you privacy as you come and go.

We are also perfectly located near either bustling Solano Avenue or the delectable Gourmet Ghetto. You can take a leisurely walk to both neighborhoods where you will find too many restaurants, pubs, cafe's, boutiques, bookstores, movie theatres and world class restaurants (like Alice Water's Chez Panisse), to list.

SOLANO AVENUE – Solano Ave., located just one block over from the house, is the highlight of North Berkeley. You’ll find a diverse array of restaurants to choose from, bars, an old fashioned Pub, a wonderful independent bookstore, a movie theatre, spas, and boutique shops. You can read more about it here http://www.solanoavenueassn.org/saa_directory/directory.html.

We are in a true neighborhood with all the local services you could hope for. About 100 yds. from the house you’ll find Andronico’s. Andronico’s is an upscale, locally founded supermarket. Here you’ll discover all the freshest and fanciest ingredients. Would you like some wine with your beautifully cooked meal? Visit Solano Cellars, our local wine merchant, located nearby.

Something for breakfast? There is a marvelous local bakery, La Farine. Need your morning caffeine fix? Stroll over to Peet’s Coffee & Tea (also locally founded) ; open early every day.

Forget to pack some essential toiletries? Either Pharmaca Integrative Pharmacy or Whole Health Apothecary will have what you’re missing and more.

Two ½ blocks away is the North Berkeley branch of our public library system. It’s in a beautiful historic building that has been recently renovated. If you want to rent videos, there’s a, independently owned video store, just around the corner on Solano Ave.

GOURMET GHETTO – If you’ve ever heard of the world famous Chez Panisse then you’ll find it in Berkeley’s Gourmet Ghetto. Take a Culinary Walking Tour or experience the food truck phenomenon at Berkeley’s Off The Grid

A hike through Tilden Regional Park is a fantastic way to experience nature. It has something for everyone….the sportsman, the nature enthusiast, kids and families.

Visiting friends or family associated with UC Berkeley? We are located just two miles from campus with easy access to public transportation via AC Transit.

Want to travel farther afield? We are just over a mile (a 15 – 20 mile walk) from the North Berkeley BART station (Bay Area Rapid Transit). From here you can shoot right into San Francisco or points beyond. If you’re returning late at night, there is always a line of taxis just outside the station.

Charming immaculate cottage with a soul

  • 5 of 5

I wish I could give a five+ rating to Mary and her cottage! Immaculately clean, I met the owner as I was arriving and she was finishing a last minute inspection to make sure that everything was perfect, which it was.For such a compact place, there was nothing lacking. It was great to try a French press for the first time with coffee that was part of the welcome, as well as fruit and a bottle of wine, along with fresh croissants. Easy parking, and a quiet spot to refresh after my day. I will definitely return!.Cheers!

Just wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place. The cottage is immaculate -- beautifully furnished, very comfortable, interesting photography books on the desk. The courtyard with its lush plantings and sound of water (the cobalt urn is a fountain) is wonderful. The pictures don't do it justice. Thank you, Mary, for creating such a beautiful place. And the location is great, with a grocery store, coffee shops and restaurants just a couple of blocks away.

A hidden gem.

  • 5 of 5

Flagstone Cottage is a gem. The residence had everything we needed in a quiet peaceful setting set back from the road. The cottage is well appointed and very clean. It's within walking distance of grocery stores, many wonderful restaurants, shops, and public transit. Our visit to the area was to visit with family in a nearby town ... close enough to be convenient, but far enough away that we were able to enjoy much of what the area offered. We hope to return.

Excellent Stay, Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

My spouse and I stayed 5 nights, perfect and private little spot to rest your head after exploring all the Bay area has to offer to visitors. Easy check-in/check-out, very efficient and thoughtful kitchen for its size, great bed and the fountain was wonderful to wake up to with the birds and squirrels stopping by for a drink. Will be back when we return for another visit.

Sweet, quiet, breathe of fresh air!

  • 4 of 5

My boyfriend & I really enjoyed our few days at this cottage! We have had some super unpleasant experiences in some of the motels we have stayed at. So this beautiful little studio & peaceful outdoor setting was exactly what we were looking for.

Thank you for the thoughtful amenities and thank you for having us. I hope we can stay again soon!!

(And I hope Melissa was able to find the misplaced/missing Arrow Bed!!)
