A 5-star retreat.

  • 5 of 5

The Claremont Cottage is architecturally interesting and matches the exterior of the primary residence. Its interior is well designed and well appointed, with unique art, flowers, furnishings and window coverings. Its small patio has an array of potted succulents. We enjoyed staying in this quiet Berkeley retreat. The bottle of wine and rich coffee were special treats.

Yes, if you are in Berkeley Yes

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed at the lovely cottage a couple of times now, and I really love it.

It's so comfortable, the place has an easy nice feeling to me. I love the draperies and window treatments. The bed is comfortable. It's cozy and fun, and I love the location.

Perfect for a single or a couple.

Wonderful cottage in a beautiful neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is beautifully appointed and a wonderful place to stay while exploring the area. I was in town for business and found it a great retreat to relax after a busy day. There is a grocery store nearby and tonnes of restaurants within easy walking distance. The only oddity about the space is that the only sink in the cottage is in the washroom. The owner's touches throughout the cottage make this a special place to land - with fresh cut flowers, paintings on the walls and a bottle of wine to welcome you to the cottage.

Wonderful professionally decorated cottage a stone's throw from "Everything Berkeley"

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable, beautiful, and artistic cottage located in a quiet and safe neighborhood. Yet, it is still a stone's throw from all of the excitement at UC Berkeley. We went to a conference at Berkeley and this was the perfect place to stay. The bed was very comfortable, the shower warm, and the living room and office area were a plus. We also loved the garden around the cottage and of course the adorable rescue dog who sometimes made his appearance in the garden. The hosts are also wonderful and very interested in making a stay at the cottage comfortable. This was the perfect accommodation for a couple (or perhaps a small family) and I would recommend it for a romantic week for two.
