We loved having our own garden and lots of privacy, also a fully appointed kitchen with everything you might need (and there are good grocery stores only 3-4 blocks away). We didn't have a car and enjoyed walking around North Berkeley and to downtown. We were happy to invite a friend to come have tea with us in this peaceful...

We needed a place to stay while we spent a weekend in Berkeley to watch a play at the Repertary Theater. Lodging is pretty expensive (even the low budget options and motels are overpriced), and I was really disappointed in the options through AirBnB - expensive, extremely small and/or bad location that would require driving. This was the perfect place...

The highlights of this place are the location, the "secret" gardens and the outdoor deck. I really enjoyed walking in the gorgeous neighborhoods in the hills from here and to the Farmer's Market (Thursdays), wonderful coffee shop and local market on Shattuck St. One day we even saw 4 deer and 8 wild turkeys up in the 'hoods. We walked...

This lovely cottage is in a quiet neighborhood in North Berkeley. It is tastefully decorated, very clean and well equipped. The location is close to restaurants and shopping. It sits in the middle of a beautiful garden. We would definitely stay here again!

We were enchanted as we walked through the lovely garden and in the front door. Pat thought of every amenity and convenience. The remote-controlled fireplace heats the unit in 15 minutes, the artfully furnished cottage is a pleasure and the spacious kitchen is well equipped and provides a second work space as we both tend to fit in a bit...

Everything about this private cottage is perfect for a stay in Berkeley: location (in the food ghetto, close to transit, Zip Cars, the University); the cottage has been provided with every detail you might ever need to be self-sufficient and right at home. It is immaculate, comfortable, and the garden, deck, fireplace and large soaker bathtub are all a delight!...

I found this oasis of beauty, tranquility, peace, and comfort by doing a search for B&Bs in Berkeley. I read the reviews, and contacted the lovely woman who has created this special place. It was exactly as described on the website, only even better in reality. I spent 8 nights and left at checkout time on the 9th day, when...

I stayed in this cottage for a week while visiting my son and daughter-in-law and my 3-year-old grandtwins. It provides a delightful and elegant respite from the people I love the most. It renews my spirit and engages my heart. The gardens are lovely, and the cottage provides everything one might need. I look forward to going again!

This was one of the most comfortable and well-equipped places I've ever stayed. The cottage is a spacious one-bedroom with eat-in kitchen and charming details everywhere. Surrounded by a lush garden, it's very private and peaceful.

Me and my family visit the East Bay Area a couple of times a year and we have now found the place we want to stay for all our visits. From the moment we stepped into the cottage, we felt very much at home and relaxed. Our 2-1/2 year old son Jack, loved playing outside in the beautiful garden, and...
