This darling guest cottage is ideal for a couple’s weekend away or a laid back trip with a friend, with one bedroom providing a Queen-sized Bed. You’ll love the traditional Tudor-style architecture that frames this private escape. Natural light and warmth flood this home with private en suite bathroom. You’ll love coming home after a day of exploration, grabbing a book, lounging on the patio, or catching up on work under a sky lit desk (free, high-speed Wi-Fi). This chic yet comfortable property offers exactly what you need to rest and relax while traveling to the Bay Area.
Located in the heart of the Claremont/Elmwood area of Berkeley, this home positions you perfectly to explore the best of Northern California. The famed University of California, Berkeley, is a brief 5 minute drive from your accommodations, making it easy for you to catch a game at the recently renovated Cal Memorial Stadium, a concert at the Greek Theater, or take a tour of the on-campus Berkeley Art Museum. The historic Claremont Club and Spa is a 15 minute walk, where you can access the Bay Area's best family aquatic facility, complete with a 25-yard heated outdoor recreational pool, a 25-yard heated lap pool and outdoor jet-stream whirlpool. The Club also hosts a sauna and steam room, as well as 10 outdoor tennis courts.
For dinner and drinks, top-rated Elmwood/Rockridge restaurants and bars are within walking distance, including Wood Tavern, Southie, and The Trappiste Provisions. Grab a treat at Tara's Organic Ice Cream or Ici and then catch a movie at the Elmwood Neighborhood Cinema -all within walking distance! Tilden Park, Lawrence Hall of Science and the Botanical Garden of Berkeley (with 13,000 different kinds of plants from around the world) are less than 3 miles from your accommodations! The metropolis of San Francisco is also nearby, accessible via BART from the Rockridge Station, providing many more sights to be seen. Plan a visit to the legendary Alcatraz Island or sample seafood fare at Fisherman's Wharf. The wine country of Sonoma and Napa counties also make for a wonderful day trip.

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.
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...
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.
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.
