Rent your own 1 bedroom cottage in back of a cute house in Albany. The cottage has just been completely renovated with new kitchen cabinets, granite, completely new faux finish walls with vaulted ceilings. A new hickory hand scraped wood floor with a an old time cottage feeling. COMES WITH IT'S OWN PRIVATE BATHROOM, a smallish bedroom that contains a captains bed with four drawers. The bedroom and the bathroom are tiled. Comes with well equipped Kitchen, 49 inch 4K TV with many streaming services and Netflix free. Captains bed has four drawers and there is also a small five drawer chest of drawers in the bedroom. Completely private and separate from the mail house where I live. Comfortable bed in the bedroom but its a very small room so there is no room to get out of the bed except crawling over your bed partner and also the bed is higher than a normal bed so I have been advised that older guests might not take to this so well. and very comfortable sofa bed in the living room. There is also a loft with a full size bed. Safe neighborhood, lots of on street parking, very near Solano ave which has tons of businesses and restaurants. Bart station about ten to fifteen minutes walk.

Great neighborhood, cute little cottage, helpful host
Robin's cottage was perfect for our visit to the Berkeley area. With a living area, kitchen, full bathroom and bedroom, we felt right at home. Our favorite part was the neighborhood - Solano Ave with many great restaurants, a Safeway, CVS and coffee right around the corner. The BART is close by but a little more than desirable walking distance - however easy to move the car a few blocks closer.
Attentive, helpful host & friendly neighbors
Walkable, safe, vibrant, historic neighborhood
Lots of stores, restaurants nearby
Close to Berkeley, easy public transportation to San Francisco
Fully equipped kitchen
Cute, comfortable decor
Very fair price
Bedroom very small/high bed against wall makes it challenging for older couples
Cleanliness standards lower than my preference (old sponges, moldy coffee cup in microwave, old coffee in coffee pot, leftover food in fridge, "lived-in" look of bathroom, walls, and cluttered deck area.)
Very comfortable cottage in great location!
Very cute little cottage. It worked perfectly for our family. The owner Robin was very nice and accommodating with some last minute travel changes.
Really cute place. Fit 7 people comfortably, 3 couples and a single.
It was a nice stay for what we needed. I think there really should be clear directions for what is expected from the renter as far as cleanliness. There were a couple used tissues in one of the bedrooms when we got there and a broken glass in the cupboard. It was my first time renting like this and I didn't know how much we were supposed to clean. Should we sweep and vacuum, how should we leave the bedding, things like that. I like to leave a place cleaner than when I got there so we picked up the previous persons used tissues and threw away the broken glass. Just a suggestion, let renters know your expectations. Otherwise a nice stay.
I think the guests should leave the place and relatively clean Shake but the fact is they do pay the cleaning deposit which pays for me to hire a cleaner to finish the job so no need to fret over how clean it's going to be
