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.
Great place to come home to after touring the Bay Area
My partner and I recently spent 4 days in July at this property and thoroughly enjoyed it. To start with, the owner made checking in a very easy process and we entered a cottage awash in light that gave the yellow and white colors of this spotless cottage a warm glow. A welcoming note greeted us, including some thoughtful preserves. We enjoy cooking and the stovetop, microwave, toaster oven and coffee maker were all put too good use. A variety of coffee, tea, spices and cooking utensils were nice homey touches. We were able to relax with a little television, watching from a comfortable couch which is something most hotel rooms do not have.
The cottage is located in a quiet neighborhood with plenty of on-street parking, which was perfect for our rent-a-car. Access to nearby shopping areas and the highway were both good. We also appreciated having a nearby BART station with parking on the days we were touring in heavily congested parts of San Francisco and didn't want to deal with parking in the city.
Our VRBO owner, while welcoming, also afforded us our privacy which was a nice part of our vacation get-away. We would definitely visit the property again the next time we vacation to the Bay Area!
The cottage was great!

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.
Great comfortable and peaceful cottage
We were looking for a place where my parents in law could stay while visiting us for a week, and were thrilled to find this cottage. My in-laws loved the cottage and could not think of anything negative about their stay when I asked for their feedback for the review. They had everything they needed and found the decor very comfortable and inviting. They really appreciated the little details, like the way the outside lights were always turned on for them when they came back at night. They would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it to others. The owner was responsive and helpful. Thank you!
