Great get away.
Very nice. A perfect holiday get away.
Perfectly furnished, quiet, lovely garden. Great location.
This was a second stay at Joan’s unit. It is spacious and comfortable and I really appreciate the larger kitchen area. Joan is very helpful without being at all intrusive. I hope to stay again when I’m in the Berkeley area. The location is quiet and safe with easy access to shopping and restaurants.
This lovely studio is set in a natural garden and is very private. It’s in a tree lined neighborhood and is well located for visiting the Bay Area.
Joan is a good host who is willing to be of help but also respects your privacy.
The studio is self contained and is very comfortable. It’s in walking distance to shopping and restaurants....a wonderful destination! We hope to return.
Quiet and cozy cottage!
It was great to have a quiet and cozy place to come home to every night after traveling around the area all day. There was very little that we needed that we couldn't find in the house.
The mattress and pillows were just right (I’m very picky, and usually don’t sleep well – but it was so comfortable here!)
It was great to find a notebook with ideas for restaurants, stores, and activities, and the collection of maps and travel guides for the area that was available at the house was very helpful. A deck of cards, a few board games, all the dishes, glassware, silverware and a few pots and pans made it just like home.
I enjoyed reading the comments from the other guests in the guest book, and looking at Joan's beautiful plants in the back yard.
We will definitely reserve the cottage again the next time we’re visiting our son at Berkeley!
Pretty and well-organized accommodation.
Good location, pleasant garden, well-equipped kitchen, efficiently run.
Host is amazing, lovely to deal with and very helpful. Cottage is perfect to relax as if you’re home, quiet neighborhood, easy access to interstates and close to Berkeley.
Berkeley sits across the bay from San Francisco which is easily accessible by car, bus, BART or ferry. Just to the north is the beautiful Napa Valley with is world class wineries, to the east are Lake Tahoe and Yosemite National park for hiking, skiing and camping and to the south lie the Monterey Bay with its wonderful aquarium and Carmel. In the San Francisco Bay there is boating, fishing and windsurfing. Marin county, to the north-east has great hiking trails and beaches.
Other Activities: dancing, opera, symphony, film festivals, rock climbing
Golf: Golf is enjoyed in Tilden Park, a fifteen minute drive from the cottage.
