Surrounded by trees on 1/2 acre, our cottage in Kensington/ Berkeley Hills is a perfect country house in the city. Our relaxing light-filled retreat is decorated with our original textile designs, Kiran's fine art photography and has a hot tub under the stars.
“This place was just where we wanted to stay. There is greenery all around the deck and outside the windows making the place feel so peaceful and like a getaway. We woke up to seeing butterflies, colorful birds and often deer near the trees and creek outside the window. The bed was so soft and the hot tub was perfect for cool nights/mornings when most was the mist is still settled in the hills. The hosts also provided us with recommendations on where to eat and the markets close by, they even left granola by our door. I loved the stay here but there we’re only a few little things that would have made the experience better; I liked that they had Netflix but I wish there was a chrome cast to the tv but that’s not to much of a big deal. I also wish the owners were more clear about the area not being our own, they stay on the same property but still separate buildings so we got the privacy we wanted. Overall would definitely recommend!!”
Friendly, hospitable hosts and private comfortable room with queen bed in a quiet residential neighborhood near UC Berkeley. Easy walk to bus and BART, shops, pubs, and restaurants. The Garden Hideaway is a freestanding building in our back yard. The view from you room is of our vegetable garden (and perhaps of a hummingbird or two). There is unlimited free wifi. You will have access to one off-street parking space for a compact car.
“I had a nice stay at Mishaa's for a night. She kindly allowed me to drop off my luggage before check-in time, and showed me the place. (Thanks to that, I was able to visit friends in SF for the afternoon.) The room is comfortable, well furnished, and located close to BART. It's also walking distance from Whole Foods and Berkeley Bowl---popular grocery stores. I wold stay again!”
Our tucked-away, quiet studio is a 5 minute walk to UC Berkeley and 20 minutes to the Gourmet Ghetto. The space has amazing natural light with 4 skylights and garden facing windows. There is a patio deck with table and chairs to enjoy meals outdoors. Previously an art studio, our space is detached building sharing no walls. A calm home base for visiting Berkeley or the UC. Newly remodeled in October 2019. The space features a kitchenette, closet space, fast WiFi, queen bed, and a writing desk.
“I absolutely LOVED staying here, and I'm already looking forward to returning the next time I need to getaway and write. The house looked just like the photos, and was extremely peaceful, perfect for productivity. The hosts were also super sweet, always responding in a quick manner. I can't speak highly enough about this space. It's also located walking distance from some amazing views of the bay. Just simply amazing.”
