Cozy, 10x14 cottage located in the garden of the main house. Recently built. Clean and comfortable. Includes a small refrigerator, microwave and electric kettle. Note: The shared bathroom is located 25' away in the main house.

The space

This is a cozy, comfortable secluded cottage on a tree-lined block within walking distance to BART, the best grocery store in town and the post office. The neighbors are friendly and respectful and keep it safe.

There is also a single bedroom sometimes available for rent in the house. Please ask if interested.

STREET Parking beyond 2 hours only available after 5 pm and all day Sunday.

Note: The Bathroom you'll use is shared with Miriam and Manuel -- and sometimes family members visiting may use it--but there are 2.5 bathrooms total in the main house.

Guest access

Note that the bathroom will be shared. There are 2.5 bathrooms in the house and while we (Miriam and Manuel) are usually the only ones here using them--we have two adult sons who may visit.

Interaction with guests

Interaction is totally flexible--as much or as little as you'd like. I enjoy meeting and hosting new guests but have a busy work schedule so may not be available. We will respect your privacy and we would appreciate you respecting ours.

Other things to note

A reminder that the shared bathroom is 25' from the cottage, inside the main house. It will be shared with us and possibly others depending on whether family members are visiting. (We have two adult sons who live in the area.)

Our well behaved, friendly dog will be present in the main house and sometimes in the garden but she goes for regular walks.

You are welcome to eat and make tea and coffee in the room. The cottage has the following amenities; a small refrigerator, a microwave and electric tea kettle. Meanwhile, kitchen privileges in the main house available mornings but no access to the rest of the main house.

We had a wonderful stay at Miriam and Manuels house. We enjoyed coming back to the cottage in a quiet neighbourhood in Berkeley after a long day in the city. The Bart stations is only a few minutes away. So it is easy to go to San Francisco Airport and downtown SF without a car. And if you do bring your car you can easily park it on the street. Miriam and Manuel made us feel like at home. They were very friendly and gave us countless recommendations. We miss Lola!!!

Miriam and Manuel were lovely and the perfect hosts! Their house was charming and the garden was adorable. Every time we walked through the main house the comforting smell of home cooking greeted us along with their sweet dog Lola (who I fell in love with). The back house is secluded and the perfect place for the perfect price, would definitely stay again!

What a wonderful find! I stayed at the little backyard cottage for four days and loved every minute of it. Miriam was communicative and very hospitable. The cottage is well-appointed, clean, and cozy. The patio and gardens out back are beautiful. It was very easy to explore Berkeley from their home, with the BART, Berkeley Bowl, a public library, and many parks all in walking distance. I highly recommend their lovely space!

Miriam and Manuel are awesome hosts and their home is beautiful! They are very close to CAL campus and convenient to a variety of restaurants etc. The cottage is new and lovely and very clean. Very comfortable and welcoming! Their back yard is also beautiful and relaxing. Miriam even made Glenn a cup of coffee one morning as we hurriedly left to see CAL's first home game Sat morning! No issues parking, Miriam thought of that as well! Their dog LOLA is amazing and beautifully behaved and trained. If you love dogs, she'll grant you as many opportunities as you like for some special encounters. She's very friendly. If you don't, she's so well behaved she will leave you alone if you wish. Miriam and Manuel are very considerate with this just let them know!

Miriam and Manuel are extraordinarily kind and friendly to guests. They always said good morning and invited me and another guest to a party they were having. The cottage is very safe and private, with its own mini fridge and microwave. Highly recommend to anyone coming to the Bay Area for short-term work or as a transition place while looking for housing.
