Wonderful, quiet, well located cottage in the East Bay
I stayed here for a few days while visiting friends and family in the Bay Area and I couldn't have been happier with the cottage and its location. Because it is in a residential neighborhood, it is super quiet while being within an easy walk to the main drag of Albany/Berkeley-Solano Avenue. I chose not to have an auto during this visit and was easily able to walk to two BART stations - El Ceritto and North Berkeley.
The cottage is small but very well equipped--perfect for one person or a couple. The bed is super comfy as well.
Sarah is very easy to deal with and went out of her way to be accommodating. I will definitely check out the cottage's availability the next time I am visiting the Bay Area.
Very private and quiet hideaway
I loved the location of the studio and the thoughtful furnishings.
Cozy, comfortable cottage
My daughter and I stayed here for a girls getaway recently. We just loved it! The cottage is comfortable and well-appointed. Our host was very welcoming and had wonderful tips on local hiking and farmers markets. We will definitely return!
Superb--quiet--private--clean--wonderfully appointed--superb host!
I was in the Berkeley-Albany area for a few days, to give a series of readings and book talks. Coming in from the long drive from Oregon, the quiet, private, conveniently located, elegantly appointed, and welcoming ambiance of this cottage was a joy. This was a great place to come back to, too, after an afternoon or evening of giving presentations, and the conveniently arranged kitchenette area and large, comfortable, airy bathroom were wonderful for tranquil meals and long, muscle-easing showers. And Sarah is a superb host, available if needed, welcoming, but leaving one all the privacy one may desire. I strongly recommend this beautiful studio cottage.
The cottage was great!
The cottage was great! I will definitely be back! It’s in a great neighborhood.
Dallas, Texas USA
A very small but ver cozy cottage with many thoughtful details that made our stay so very enjoyable.
A quiet oasis in a very central location in a pretty neighborhood. Outdoor patio area was a nice bonus, as was a very friendly golden retriever named Lucky. Sarah, the owner, was charming and has thought of many nice touches to make the cottage inviting and comfortable. We will be returning for future stays when we next visit the Berkeley area.
