Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This charming cottage, located in a beautiful and quiet residential neighborhood, was very comfortable, clean and stylishly decorated. Within walking distance to many boutique shops and eateries, my husband and I enjoyed a home-away-from-home experience during our three-night stay. We will definitely consider staying at this lovely VRBO again during our next visit to Berkeley.

Just wonderful...

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was every bit as beautiful as depicted by the photos on HomeAway. Very tastefully decorated, an incredibly comfortable bed, sublime linens, luxurious bathroom, etc., and as one might expect, spotlessly clean. The light filled cottage was situated in a side street, within walking distance of the Rockridge BART station, perfect for excursions into SF. The hosts were extremely nice, helpful and accommodating, including providing a guide which answered all questions about the cottage and recommendations for the surrounding area (restaurants, activities, etc., including the Star Grocery and their delicious sandwiches, just down the block). I wish I was back there now...

Peaceful, charming, and lovely place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

This lovely cottage is a perfect place to stay. Everything you need is provided including delicious coffee and tea as well as great internet connection. The marble bathroom is lovely and the heated floors in the main rooms keep your feet cozy. There were even a few surprises such as fresh flowers, a bottle of wine in the fridge, and a pack of popcorn near the microwave. The pictures provided online truly reflect this amazing and well kept cottage. I would stay here again in an instant! Thank you for such an endearing place to stay!

My husband and I loved our stay at this Berkeley cottage! It is in a great location. The place was very clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed. Property owner was extremely nice and helpful. We could tell a lot of thought and care had gone into decorating and designing the place. We will definitely be staying there again in the future.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in the cottage. Great location in Berkeley with plenty of street parking and quiet neighborhood. We were visiting for a wedding at Tilden Botanic Gardens and activities in Oakland/Marin County and this spot was perfectly close to everything. The cottage itself was beautiful and well kept. We had access to anything we might have needed. Hoping to one day return, maybe they will let our kids sleep in the cute loft area.
