My wife and I stayed in this cottage last February, and could not have enjoyed our stay in the Bay Area more had we been anywhere else at all. The cottage itself is a tidy, one-bedroom apartment, but the spacious layout of the main room and kitchenette, the surrounding gardens, and the lovely view give it all a relaxing, reinvigorating air of serenity. The neighborhood is peaceful, yet within easy reach of the best of Berkeley, and the owners themselves could not be nicer, or more accomodating. I would never consider staying anywhere else the next time I'm in the area, and I highly recommend it to all my friends!
We could not have enjoyed this accommodation more! The cottage is located on a beautiful heritage property in the Berkeley Hills and offers wonderful views of the Bay and of the surrounding garden. Everything one could possibly need is provided. The furniture is comfortable and tasteful and there is lots of storage space. The owners are extremely responsive and in addition, warm and friendly. Restaurants, grocery stores, shopping are very close as is Tilden Park, a glorious place for a hike. In addition we could walk easily to the University, as long as we felt up to the hills! It was wonderful to have parking on the property in an enclosed garage. We will return! Thanks Carol and Joe; it was a real pleasure meeting you.
This is a stunning cottage on a gorgeous property. Relax and luxuriate in a charming. well maintained , extremely clean cottage with beautiful views of the hills, bay and beyond! We cherished mornings , filled with bird song and visiting deer sightings. Perfect for a romantic and relaxing stay for two with easy access to Berkeley's beautiful gardens, friendly neighborhoods , restaurants and shops. Check out Saul's deli and Books inc. just down the hill, as well as Angeline's Louisiana Kitchen and world class theater at Berkeley Rep in downtown Berkeley.
Larger than expected and beautifully finished. Good instructions too. My wife loved it. We saw 4 deer, including 2 spotted fawns, on the hillside above.
Very good in every respect. Plenty of space, well-equipped cooking facilities, easy parking in the cottage's garage and attractive surroundings. The owner was extremely helpful throughout the booking process and during our stay.
My husband and I had a wonderful stay in Carol and Joe's guest apartment on their beautiful property nestled in the Berkeley Hills. So comfortable, spacious and convenient in every way. The views were fantastic and the surrounding gardens peaceful and quiet. We will absolutely be back as soon as we can. Thank you Carol and Joe! Your place made our visit to Berkeley extra special.
