What a Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Fairy tale cottages do come true!

  • 5 of 5

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.

The guesthouse was great

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.

A Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Perfect in every way.

  • 5 of 5

We were in town visiting our children, who reside in Oakland, for the Christmas holiday. The cottage was perfect for the two of us. It was cozy and clean while offering a lovely view and beautiful neighborhood. We were able to walk to many Berkeley restaurants and shops, while getting a great workout trucking back up the hill. Thank you Carol and Joe! We will be back. Alice and Kent
