Just what we needed and more!
We had a perfect short stay in this studio. It was clean, nicely decorated, spacious and private. We had everything we needed and Betsy was easy to contact and reach out to if needed. We are planning to return here once our daughter begins school. Her nice touches really added to our stay. Thank you!!!
Gem of a cottage, beautifully appointed and wonderful hosts. Best place I’ve found in Berkeley through VRBO. Minutes from the best this town has to offer in a quiet, verdant neighborhood.
Perfect location and space!
We visited Berkeley with our 5 year old twin boys and this was a perfect location and space for us. We walked everywhere from this spot (the cheeseboard in the morning, live oak park, zachary’s pizza etc). Betsy and her family were very kind to share some toys for our kids to play with in the enclosed driveway, and we enjoyed sitting in the little garden beside the guest house. We will definitely stay again!
Beautiful Neighborhood, Immaculate Studio, Fabulous Accommodations!
Thank you so much to Betsy and Jeremy for such a nice studio for us to rent while we were visiting family and friends in the area! It was so lovely, very spacious, well-equipped and extremely comfortable. We were pleasantly surprised that it was even nicer in person than the photos, although I was already impressed with the photos and reviews. The bed and linens were very comfortable, there were lots of nice towels, a lovely bathroom, kitchen accoutrements including dishes/wine glasses/opener/fridge, etc. plus Peets coffee! It was decorated very nicely with up to date furnishings, decor, nice artwork and it was very quiet.
There was plenty of parking in front of the home while we were there (plus on the street) and it was a great location. Betsy and Jeremy were very responsive to any questions we had too!
We wished we could have stayed longer and look forward to returning. :)
It was a lovely cottage and we would stay there again. Very clean, quiet and spacious. The bed was comfortable. The location was excellent.
Perfect location and 'mother-in-law' setup -- a true North Berkeley gem!
When I was searching for a place to stay for five nights in which I could also accommodate my cousin and my niece, I was amazed to find this studio, just three blocks north of the Gourmet Ghetto, close to Solano shops and restaurants and several churches as well. According to the lovely owner, she and her husband converted their garage about 18 months ago to put up visiting family members, and so many friends asked to use it that they decided to put it on the rental market. The garage has been tastefully and intelligently remodeled: the bathroom is the right size, the bed and (king-sized) sofa bed are extremely comfortable, and both are furnished with high-end towels and bedding. (There's no washer on the premises, but if you should need a change of towels or bedding, you can simply leave one of the many large wicker baskets with used towels, etc., near the fence, and you'll soon have a fresh basket waiting at your door.) The owners kindly provide coffee and tea, and the "kitchenette area" has a microwave, coffee maker, and tea kettle available, as well as a half-size fridge. Oh, and several mugs, dishes, bowls, and silverware are provided as well.
The studio has its own WiFi router, and the signal strength was excellent. I don't watch TV, but I noticed a large flat-screen on the wall opposite the bed.
As for transportation, I was easily able to get a Lyft in three minutes, and on a day when I needed to do a lot of driving, I downloaded the GigCarShare app and found two cars parked within 300 feet of the property!
I liked the fact that the studio is located far enough away from the main house that I didn't worry that we three "giggling girls" were keeping the owners up late at night. (It's located up a long driveway, behind a fence, and behind the house. For those who are concerned about such things, North Berkeley is extremely safe, and this studio is exceedingly so.)
Finally, the owners have planted a lovely garden next to the studio -- equipped with a table and chairs -- that guests are invited to use, and even to pick from! I didn't get the chance this time, but I'll be sure to take advantage of it on my next visit.
Thanks, Laura, for your very kind review. I hope to see you again!
